Initial Consultations

Our Initial Consultations are approximately one hour long and are provided free of charge, so you can come along, meet with the hypnotherapist and discuss how you would like help in a friendly and confidential environment.  We will also explain exactly how hypnotherapy helps and what’s involved, so you can decide whether hypnotherapy is the best course of action for you without any obligation or commitment to continue.


For Anger, Addictions, Alcohol, Gambling we ask for a £30 deposit for the initial consultation against missing the appointment without letting us know 48 hrs in advance. Once you have attended your appointment the deposit will be refunded in full.within 24 hours.

No Initial Consultation is needed for smoking cessation but if you would like to talk to your therapist prior to your appointment, this can be arranged. We also request a deposit in advance for smoking cessation. 



Following the initial consultation you will have all the information and knowledge you need to decide if hypnotherapy is going to be suitable for you and whether you would like to go ahead with sessions, but there is absolutely no obligation to do so.  If you do, the costs are as follows 

For all sessions except Smoking Cessation

Swindon appointments £65 per session

Cheltenham appointments  £75 per session

Smoking Cessation

Smoking Cessation is a 1 off session of up to 2 hours and costs £180.

Please note that Smoking Cessations do not require an initial consultation, please tell us when you book in so we can make sure we book you 2 hours. If you wish to talk to a therapist to decide if Hypnotherapy is the right way for you to stop smoking, just let us know. Once we have found a suitable time and date for you to stop smoking, to confirm your appointment we will request a £60 deposit, the balance you pay to the therapist at the end of your session.

A Specific Fear or Phobia

Specific fears or phobias will normally take 3-4 sessions to resolve.

An initial consultation is required to determine whether it is a specific fear or a fear arising from general anxiety.


For initial consultations that carry a deposit (see above) we will send you a Paypal request prior to your appointment. After the appointment, assuming you attend, the deposit can either be refunded to you within 24 hours, or deducted from the cost of the session.

For session payments, we can take cash and all major credit or debit cards, you will pay the hypnotherapist direct for your session appointments.

Payment is made at the end of each session for the next session, in advance.


Appointments are available:-

10am to 8pm Monday to Saturday

Terms & Conditions

Missed appointments or appointments which are rescheduled with less than 48 hrs notice are chargeable at the full fee. This is further clarified at our initial meeting & is a minimum requirement to ensure fairness to other clients who may need that appointment.

Exceptions can be made for emergencies in the case of genuine sudden illness but we are unable to accommodate employers’ changes to working patterns with short notice or childcare issues or transport issues.

Appointments need to be kept to make the necessary progress with your recovery.

Most sessions are for fifty minutes to one hour.  Lateness cannot be accommodated by adding additional time to the end of the sessions due to the impact on other clients.

We may also ask your permission to hold credit or debit card details on file in case of missed appointments.  They are confidential and not shared with any third parties.  We do not use the details, unless you don’t turn up or contact us.  This is discussed at the initial consultation.

For all appointments we take payment a week in advance each week.
