March 28, 2020

Coronavirus – Online Hypnotherapy Sessions – Skype, Zoom, Facetime

Online Hypnotherapy Sessions

Online Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy online can also include psychotherapy, NLP, EFT and other forms of therapy and support. Video conferencing is used in many industries and is often called a virtual meeting. As long as the hypnotherapist can see you, the client, they can provide effective hypnotherapy online sessions.

Some commonsense safety measures that need to be observed and understood are :-

1) Making sure your internet connection is secure

2) What to do if the internet goes down during the session (eg. the therapist will try connecting again, or we will switch to another online video service)

3) Establishing a private place so you, the client, can talk without fear of another member of your household hearing what you say

4) You may want to use headphones to help keep the session interactions private

5) Test your internet software (Skype, Zoom etc) before the session and include checking your video, audio and microphone connections.

6) Use a device with a large screen. A computer screen is better than an ipad and an ipad is better than a mobile phone screen

7) Clear away anything that might distract you

8) Turn off other devices such as phones

9) Close all other software and apps on your computer it may affect the smooth running of the video software (eg. computer memory issues)

10) Make sure your therapist can see you clearly and in particular your face and if possible your arms. (eg. hand gestures can be important for the therapist to observe during an online hypnotherapy session)

Healthy Relationship Tips

April 11, 2014

ImageSuccessful relationships are in an important aspect of our lives. The most vital relationship is with our husband, wife or partner and yet any relationship can be put at risk because of a lack of thought and understanding about what enables a relationship to stand the test of time and be a deep and nurturing relationship.

No one learns how to conduct relationships and how to make them  successful relationships. Most people bring to any relationship their history, insecurities, fears, anxieties and past influences. No one begins a relationship a clean sheet. It is therefore vital to do those things that give your relationship the best chance to succeed and be a healthy one for everyone involved.

Bad relationships can become healthy relationships if both people are willing to take responsibility and change.

Steven Harold an experienced hypnotherapist in London describes successful relationship tips which if you use can help you and your loved one to have a healthy and thriving relationship.
