*Initial Review Session

Please note that all therapy is preceded by this 1 hr Initial Review Session

The biggest reason that any therapy fails is due to a lack of trust or discomfort and the chances of success are hugely increased when you have rapport, trust, belief and confidence in your therapist.  You also need to be ready and make a commitment to do the work as there will be things outside of the sessions that you are required to do to get the best results.  This session also allows you to evaluate whether you are ready and also that this is the right therapy for you.  Please note: There is no therapy in the first session

In this session you will accomplish 3 key things:

  • Firstly, Elaine takes a thorough in-depth history, so she has a good understanding of your background including family relationships, school years etc.  She will also evaluate your current stress levels if appropriate.
  • Secondly, she raises your awareness and explains why you are responding the way you are and what is happening within the subconscious part of your mind.  She uses an enhanced version of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) to explain this.   This will provide insight and understanding of the “why” – why you eat too much, drink too much, why you can’t stop, why you feel out of control, why sometimes you feel strong and other times not etc…..
  • Thirdly, she explains how this therapy works.  As a Psychotherapist, Elaine uses a mixture of both talk therapy, hypnosis and energy work.  Hypnotherapy in this context is incredibly powerful and we now know from research into neuroscience that hypnosis is both powerful and effective.  So Elaine explains hypnosis, how it works and why it works, dispelling any myths and misunderstandings that often come via the media or stage hypnotists.

At this point Elaine will advise on what she believes to be the best way forward, which program or session plan fits your needs best and then explains how this will work, how much it will cost and how long it will take.  At this point you can either decide you want to go ahead with the therapy or perhaps its not for you.  There is no obligation to continue if you are not 100% sure that this is right for you.  It will cost you $195 for this session.
