People often ask “is Hypnotherapy worth the money?” so I thought, let’s have a go at answering that. In simple terms, the answer is “that depends on the Hypnotherapist, and what you want to achieve by working with them”.
Let’s dig a little deeper on this. The value you place on the change you want to bring about will influence value for money you feel you get from the hypnotherapy. That comes into the therapy room with you. Being clear about what you want, both With yourself and the therapist will certainly help you get, value for money. Also make sure you also share what your specific needs and preferences are.
If for example you are going to see me to quit smoking, think about how much money you will save on cigarettes over the first few weeks. I would guess you will be making an overall saving very soon. If you aim to let go of a fear or phobia that’s holding you back from doing things. Things like traveling (fear of flying) or taking care of your children (emetophobia) then how much is your ability to be able to do that worth to you?
For many of my clients, anxiety, depression and panic (the three ugly sisters) have a really debilitating impact on their everyday lives. These three things can such the joy out of life. So what would it mean to someone, to you, to be free of them? How valuable would that be. It’s a rhetorical question, but it’s a question that you need to answer to determine the value for money of any treatment.
While some people may find hypnotherapy to be a valuable tool for addressing certain issues, such as anxiety, phobias, or addiction, it may not be the best option for everyone. Be prepared to talk to the therapist about what your requirements are, and if you have concerns about if Hypnotherapy is for you. I generally say that if after the second session your not ‘getting it’ or it’s not getting you any results, let’s talk. I might be able to link you up with a different therapist or a different form of therapy. How’s that for value.
As I’ve said in another blog recently cost of hypnotherapy can vary widely depending on the location across the country. It can also vary according to the experience of the Therapist, but don’t assume a more expensive price tag means more experience or better service any more than a higher priced bottle of wine is automatically better. Do you research and look at what the client feedback is like.
Ultimately, whether or not hypnotherapy is worth the money for an individual, for you is a personal opinion and a decision for you. Make that decision after made after careful consideration of your specific needs, goals, and financial situation. It is also important to research potential hypnotherapists and choose a qualified and reputable practitioner who can provide evidence-based treatment.
I sincerely hope that therapist will be me. Because I love what I do, the impact it has and the great feedback I get.
