If you are considering using online hypnotherapy you may naturally be wondering what it involves and how it can benefit you. If after reading this article you still are not sure if accessing hypnotherapy online is suitable for you or your condition, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
How does hypnotherapy work?
The actual hypnotherapy sessions follow the same format as if we were meeting face to face. The only difference is that all our communication is done via the Zoom platform. This makes it a particularly safe form of therapy that can take place from anywhere in the world providing there is a reliable internet connection. You will receive the same structured session and excellent level of service that you would during face to face therapy but just from your choice of room.
All parts of the of the hypnotherapy process, from this initial consultation through to the therapy itself can take place via the virtual platform, Zoom. A vast majority of our time together is spent in conversation, therefore we just need a method of communication where we can see and hear each other.
I will send you an invitation via email stating the time and date of our session together. You will then only need to click on the link at the specified time to connect to the session. I will then invite you into your session. It really is that simple.
Once we have finished the psychotherapy (talking therapy) part of our session I will invite you to get yourself comfortable while I guide you into a state of deep relaxation. Once you have enjoyed being in this relaxed trance state I will be able to help you come back to full consciousness just as effectively as if we were having a face to face session.
What are the benefits of using hypnotherapy?
There is a multitude of reasons why clients prefer working online to the more traditional face-to-face format. It makes better use of time as there is no need to travel to and from appointments. As a result, it can be much more convenient and beneficial experience for many. It makes it possible to fit a therapy session into a busy day as only an hour needs to be spared, there is no need to add travel time onto either end.
It can also mean that you can enjoy your therapy sessions from different locations if necessary. As long as you are able to access a reliable internet connection then your therapy session can take place. This is particularly helpful if you wish to continue your therapy while you are on holiday or if you need to travel for work purposes.
During the last part of our session you will be guided into a relaxed state. It is during this state that your subconscious mind becomes receptive to suggestions which have a beneficial effect. One of the major benefits of being in a familiar environment is that you have the potential to enter this trance state more quickly.
Many people find travelling and finding parking spaces quite stressful. As the therapy session will take place from a location that is convenient to you, you avoid the stress of having to travel to an appointment. As a majority of my clients are seeking help with symptoms related to anxiety it really makes little sense to add to their worries. Additionally, if you are seeking help for social anxiety or agoraphobia then we remove the necessity for you to leave your house.
Being an online hypnotherapist means that I am able to provide my services to both national and international clients. This gives many clients the opportunity to benefit from my services who would never have been able to if face to face therapy was the only option available. So wherever you are reading this article from we can work together to improve your wellness and help you make positive changes for your future.
Is virtual hypnotherapy as effective as face to face hypnotherapy?
There is absolutely no difference to the structure of the session and the results are just the same. We are by nature creatures of habit. Our brains love repetition. When things are comfortable our brain feels safe and feelings of relaxation increase. This may make it possible for you to enter a trance state more quickly. This means that your subconscious mind will have more time to focus on, further absorb and reflect on the things we have discussed during the session.
A number of studies have been conducted comparing the effectiveness of online hypnotherapy to face-to-face sessions. None of the studies found sessions delivered via the web to be less effective, whilst some of them found it to be a more effective method of delivery.
Achieving transformation doesn’t have to be hard. It’s as simple as;
You learn what’s happening to make you feel the way you do and how together we can quickly make you better.
We work together each week to bring about positive change helping you to move towards your desired outcome.
You’ve completely changed your way of thinking, allowing you to enjoy living the life you want.
What do I need to benefit from online hypnotherapy?
There are just a few things that you need to make your sessions as effective as possible. You need to find a place free from distractions and somewhere comfortable to relax.
You will need a device that can be connected to the internet. I have run sessions with people using phones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers. It really makes no difference to the effectiveness of the session. You may, towards the end of your session, wish to move from a chair to your bed in order to achieve greater levels of relaxation, so in this instance the more portable the device used the better.
You will need a sufficiently fast internet connection in order to run the Zoom program. A standard broadband or fibre connection is perfectly adequate. To help make your online hypnotherapy session run as smoothly as possible it is advised that you close down all other programs running in the background as this can sometimes interfere with the connection.
Can I be hypnotised online?
Everyone goes in and out of a trance state multiple times during the day. It is often referred to as a day dream like state. Some people are very susceptible to hypnosis and can enter a deep hypnotic state very easily. This is not necessary as far as our session together is concerned.
As long as you possess the ability to relax, you will enable your conscious and unconscious minds to work together to find solutions for your problems, making the therapy successful. I have run hundreds of online hypnotherapy sessions and no clients to date have found it difficult to relax in their familiar surroundings.
What treatments can you offer?

Solution focused hypnotherapy is a collaborative process that combines talking therapy (psychotherapy) with hypnotherapy. It’s a very positive form of therapy as my questions are focused on the outcomes and goals you wish to achieve.
At the end of every session, I will guide you into a relaxed trance state. During this time your brain will be coming up with solutions, ideas and building up the neural pathways necessary to move you toward the desired future we’ve just discussed.
Does hypnotherapy have any known side effects?
Hypnotherapy uses the state of hypnosis to enable people to make positive changes and begin the healing process. Hypnosis is a perfectly natural state that we go into regularly each day.

What is the difference between hypnotherapy and meditation?
Meditation and hypnotherapy have different purposes and approaches and use different techniques. Meditation is a self-improvement technique primarily used for relaxation, stress reduction, wellness and personal growth, focusing on achieving a state of inner peace and mindfulness.
With Hypnotherapy a hypnotherapist will induce a state of focused attention and relaxation, with the primary purpose of addressing specific psychological or behavioural issues, such as a fear, phobias, anxiety, or weight loss.
While both involve altered states of consciousness and relaxation, meditation is for general well-being and self-awareness, while hypnotherapy is a therapeutic tool used in clinical settings for targeted issue resolution.
