By relaxing the mind and encouraging subconscious focus it's possible to address root causes of problems and make changes more easily and quickly than just by talking about things like you may do in counselling.

If these three elements are present, there is absolutely no reason it won't work for you.
The number of sessions required does vary from client to client. In rare cases one session is enough, but most clients will need between 4 and 6 sessions to achieve their goals.
For deep-rooted issues we may need to work together for longer and will discuss this during the initial consultation.
My therapy room is in the Health Club of the Crown Spa Hotel in Scarborough.
For clients outside of the area I offer Skype and telephone therapy sessions.
After a quick chat on the phone to find a little more about each other, we'll arrange a first appointment that will last one and a half hours*. Follow-up appointments last one hour and the frequency will depend on the issues we are addressing.
* See section on Young Clients for details of sessions for under-eighteens.
