The Programme

This hypnotherapy programme is conducted over four sessions, specifically designed to bring about a positive change to a student’s mindset. It offers them a set of ‘mind management tools’ that can help them focus on success instead of focusing on negatives and failures.

This is not a short-term fix, it is creating skills for life, in that if that student uses the ‘tools’ they will develop a lifetimes habits for being calmer, more resilient to pressures and always perform at their very best. Every student learns a simple form of self-hypnosis which they can access for any situation in the future.

The Programme includes a support CD, which the student is asked to listen to each day, and which will reinforce the calmness state and rid the student of any build up of the little day to day stresses.
