The Cost of Hypnotherapy and the real Value it represents to you.
When considering the cost of Hypnotherapy it's important to understand that this is a short term therapy. Where most talking therapies often need to extend in to years in order to be effective, Hypnotherapy is usually completed over a number of sessions a minimum of 3 sessions for straightforward issues or 8 to 12 sessions for particularly complex issues e.g. some addictions, depressions or where a very significant amount of weight needs to be lost and trauma and/or emotional triggers need to be resolved in order to achieve long term success. Sometimes one issue is resolved and the client will realise that they are now ready to work on another. Occasionally the issues that seem most debilitating my clients are the easier to resolve, panic and phobias for example are usually surprisingly quick to correct with Hypnosis techniques, usually people feel better and hopeful after the first session and by the third are confident that they're no longer phobic about the issue the came to address.
Some Therapists offer one session solutions to cover everything, I do not personally agree with this practice as in my opinion it is simply not realistic, these therapists tend to charge a significant amount for this one session often placing blame on the client for lack of success. Therapy is always a collaboration, there are no guarantees, however we are working with neurological processes.
Client Information & Informed Consent
The following information is provided to ensure that all aspects of your professional engagement with Hypfocus Therapies are explained in an open and transparent manner:
All services are by appointment. The initial consultation is usually 90 minutes and subsequent appointments are usually 60 minutes.
Sessions are conducted either face-to-face, by phone or via Skype. Home visits will be considered in some circumstances.
Clients are usually offered the choice of weekly or fortnightly sessions. From time to time more or less regular sessions may be considered and agreed to by both parties. A minimum of 3 sessions are recommended for optimum results.
Depending on the nature of the issues you want to work with it is important that as your therapist, I have a structure by which to work with you in an effective and safe way. Some issues will require greater regularity of sessions than others. We can discuss a mutually beneficial framework at the start of our work together.
Changes to Appointments
A full business days’ notice is required for cancellations or changes to session times, otherwise the full cost of the session is payable. For example, a 3pm appointment on a Monday needs to be cancelled before 3pm on the preceding Friday in order to avoid cancellation fees. Public holidays do not count as business days. Cancelling more than 24 hours in advance may be subject to a $75 cancellation fee.
If you arrive late for a session, the session time will be reduced to ensure that the session concludes at the agreed time. This is to ensure that other clients are not delayed as a result.
Please contact me on my mobile number 0435 923 817 by text or calling if you are unable to make a session, or to let me know that you are running late. If you don’t arrive for a session within 15 minutes of the agreed starting time, I may conclude that you are not going to be attending and may leave the office. In this event the full cost of the session will be payable.
If I need to change or cancel an appointment, I will give you as much notice as possible.

Fee's vary as in any profression. The key thing is to make sure that the Therapist you are seeing is properly trained and a member of the relevant industry associations.
Being a member of an association demonstrates that the Therapist is properly accredited, insured, supervised and undertakes ongoing training.
When you are seeking significant life change through therapy, paying for someone that is experienced and properly trained will prove far more cost effective than taking a chance on someone unqualified, however well meaning they may be.
