There is, of course, a considerable variation in the difficulty of the various problems and there is no general rule which makes it possible to say how much improvement can be achieved and in how much time.

The simpler problems can sometimes be overcome completely in one session – Hypnosis can be extremely effective. Your therapist, as a member of the Council, is committed to helping you as swiftly and effectively as possible.

Your Therapist may well be able to give you a fair assessment of how much improvement you can expect and how many sessions may be needed by the end of the first session but if the problem is more complex then you will jointly review progress from time to time.
