What happens at the first hypnotherapy visit?

During the first hypnotherapy visit, the hypnotherapist will conduct an interview including your medical history and the problem that necessitated the visit. A comfortable relationship should develop during this first visit. You may discuss the number of sessions the treatment is expected to take, as well as the cost of the treatment. The hypnosis process will be explained in detail. The hypnotherapist will then guide you through a series of relaxation techniques at the same time making suggestions and using mental images to change the behavior you seek to change. Expect each session to last about one hour.
