How Many Sessions Of Hypnosis Will I Need?


The number of hypnotherapy sessions you will need will depend on your individual situation. With the exception of smoking, it is very rare that a person would require only one session.

Your subconscious mind is a complex infrastructure and it can take some time to find the source of your problem and correct it. The average number of times people see me for any given issue is about 2-3 sessions.

Mostly, I treat clients on a session by session basis, where they pay for sessions as they go. Weight loss and quit smoking hypnosis are an exception to this rule, and there are packages available for both of these conditions.


The Number Of Sessions Required To Quit Smoking

Things you should ask yourself about your own problem

This varies, depending on what type of smoker you are. If you are a habit smoker, it is likely you will only need one or two sessions. I have treated many satisfied clients who quit smoking for good in just one session. You can read their testimonials here.

If you are someone who smokes when you’re stressed, anxious or angry, or if you use smoking to deal with other unpleasant emotions, you may need more than one session. See my quit smoking hypnosis page for more details.


The Number Of Sessions Required To Lose Weight

You’re pretty much wasting your time and money if you only have one session of hypnosis for weight loss. This is why I have devised three separate packages to suit individual needs. When you’re deciding which package to go for you need to ask yourself these questions:

  1. How long have I struggled with my weight problem?
  2. Do I need a little bit of help, a lot of help or a whole lot of help?

You can consult our weight loss expert to determine the best option for you. The good thing about hypnosis is that you don’t need to keep having top-ups. Once the shift has been made in the subconscious mind this is permanent.


What If You Need More?

Occasionally I have a long-term client who sees me for more than ten sessions, but they usually want to work on a number of different issues, one after another. If the idea of hypnosis intrigues you, feel free to read more about it on my what is hypnosis? page.

Some other conditions that can be successfully treated with hypnosis include:

Dear Sonia,

I have lost 10kgs since my first appointment with you!

The weight actually came off quite quickly & I have managed to keep it off.

Sometimes it fluctuated a little but I've been sitting around the same weight now since about June.
