We can provide home consultations for certain circumstances and within an agreed area from our clinic in Penarth.
The cost of a home visit (only available in office hours) is £95 per session (this includes the initial consultation).
Insurance & Solicitors’ & Miscellaneous Letters
* Charged by the hour
Terms & Conditions
Missed appointments or appointments which are rescheduled with less than 48 hrs notice are chargeable at the full fee.
This is further clarified at our initial meeting and is a minimum requirement to ensure fairness to other clients who may need that appointment.
Exceptions can be made for emergencies in the case of genuine sudden illness but we are unable to accommodate employers’ changes to working patterns with short notice or childcare issues or transport issues.
Appointments need to be kept in order to make the necessary progress with your recovery.
Most sessions are for 50 minutes and any lateness cannot be accommodated by adding additional time to the end of the sessions due to the impact on other clients.
Alchemy Hypnotherapy reserves the right to change fees, terms and conditions when necessary and will endeavour to update the website at the soonest opportunity thereafter.
All times mentioned on this website are UK Time unless stated otherwise.
Sessions & Other Information
What to expect in your first session
The first session is always an Initial Consultation where we take the individual’s personal details and ask about the issues and challenges they are dealing with.
We then explain how the brain works; how stress, anxiety, depression and any individual issues and challenges are created; how our combination of Advanced Medical Hypnotherapy and Clinical Solution Focused Psychotherapy works; how we can create and engage with solutions; how we can empty that “Stress / Depression Bucket” most efficiently during REM sleep; how practicing The Magic Three of Positive Thoughts, Positive Actions and Positive Interactions produces a steady flow of the brain’s happy reward neurotransmitters such as Serotonin, Dopamine, Noradrenaline and Endorphins and how this process fuels recovery.
The Alchemy Neurofit MP3
As part of the brain training programme embarked upon, customers play our bespoke Alchemy Hypnotherapy Neurofit MP3 as they fall asleep every night.
It contains the same music and language patterns that we use in the weekly “live” sessions. The repetitious nature of this is vital for catalytic change.
How many sessions will you need?
The number of times you will need to see us for live sessions is entirely down to you, your ability and willingness to engage in playing the MP3 and your participation in the process.
As long as there are no other underlying issues, we can deal with Smoking Cessation in just three sessions. Fears, Phobias (eg spiders, snakes, planes, heights) and very specific Trauma can be dealt with in four sessions.
If there is general or underlying Stress, Anxiety or Depression, then it could be 9, 10, 11, 12 sessions or more and it is generally a joint decision to tail off treatments once a sustainable positive outcome has been achieved.
At such a point, some customers choose to come fortnightly and then monthly, to continue to receive positive top-ups and ongoing life coaching.
In the case of someone under 16 years old, this would be a joint decision with any referring body as well as with the individual and their guardian.
