FOR YOUR SESSION
Do I need to organise anything prior to my online session?
With just a little bit of preplanning, mindbody therapies such as hypnotherapy work extremely well online. There can even be the benefit of you relaxing more easily since you’re in a safe and familiar environment. By taking care of these few details in advance, you can set yourself up for an optimal experience.
A private, comfortable space
Choose a space for your session where you can get super comfortable so you can relax deeply, such as your bed or sofa, and where you won't be disturbed by pets or other house members.
Good internet connection
You’ll need a strong, fast internet connection of at least 25 MB per second. You can check your internet speed here: https://fast.com
If there are other people in the house at the time of your session, please ask that they don’t use the internet during your session so you can maintain a good connection.
Zoom installed on your computer
The Zoom basic app is free to install. Please have it downloaded, set up and ready before your session.
You’ll need a headset with a microphone attached that can be positioned in front of the mouth. This is super important so that we can hear each other clearly. Ear buds tend to fall out during the deeply relaxed hypnotic state and the microphone will not pick up the voice at the whispered levels common during hypnotherapy. You can purchase them very cheaply at most office supply stores.
Check that your headset is working properly prior to your session.
You’ll need a laptop or desktop computer which is connected to mains power.
Ensure that you won’t be disturbed during your session by turning your phone on silent, turning off notifications on your computer and putting a sign on the front door if needed. Make sure pets are attended to and out of the room. It’s essential that you can focus deeply without interruptions.
If you have any questions about therapy online, please don't hesitate to get in touch. I'm always happy to help!
What people are saying
LOIS, VICTOR HARBOUR
The hypnotherapy & coaching I did with Sam have changed my life profoundly.
I'm eating better, sleeping better, feeling more genuinely optimistic about the future and about myself. I’m more accepting of the past me and the past of other people. I’m more calm and serene.
I feel refreshed and reborn and I can't wait for the future.
The whole process was life-changing. As someone who's always there for others, it was incredible to have someone there just for me.
Working with Sam allowed me to go deeper & deeper into understanding myself, leading me to new insights about old patterns and beliefs that were holding me back - things I didn't even realise were there.
I found Sam to be such a genuine, caring person, surprising me many times with her advice, tools and explanations on a way forward.
When I first saw her I was very stuck and not able to move on. I now use the techniques and tools she taught me every day and feel connected in mind, body and spirit.
