FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE & NUTRITION

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What happens during a Nutritional Therapy and Functional Medicine consultation?

Prior to the initial consultation, I will send you a 5 day food diary and a short questionnaire to complete.  This will help me to build a picture of your current health status and your nutritional needs.

During the initial consultation I will ask you  about your health and wellness goals, take a full medical history,  going through each body system in detail, from birth to present as well as asking questions about your lifestyle.  Using this information, I will develop a personalised Functional Wellness plan centred around nutrition, lifestyle and mindset.   If necessary I will recommend supplements, and functional testing, for example, blood tests, genetic testing, allergy testing etc, to help to deep dive into the root of your health complaints and build a complete picture of your health blueprint.

        

A follow up appointment will be scheduled, usually about 6-8 weeks after the initial consultation, to review the progress towards your health and wellness goals.  During the follow up, I will review your progress  and amend your protocol if necessary.

I am happy to create a bespoke package that combines the different modalities. If this is something you are interested in, please book in for a complimentary Discovery Call here to discuss this further.

CRYSTAL REIKI

How is Crystal Reiki performed?

I offer both face to face and online sessions (via Zoom)

How is Crystal Healing and Reiki performed online?

I hold space for the recipient, connecting to their energy field to perform the healing.

According to Metaphysics, specifically The Hermetic Law of Similarity, we are all made up of, and connected by energy. Therefore, energy travels across any distance through time and space, allowing it to be sent to anyone, anywhere and at any time. In other words, where awareness goes, energy flows.

 

 

What happens during a Crystal Reiki session?

I will take a case history and talk you through the process.

The healing is performed  with the client fully dressed, although you will be asked to remove glasses, watches and other items of jewellery which may interfere with the treatment.

If the session is face to face, you will alternate between lying on your back and front, and crystals will be placed over different parts of the body.  My hands will hover 1-5 inches  above various parts of your body, and touch certain areas (with your permission), working from top to bottom. 

​​

For online sessions I will usually perform the distant healing over a zoom call, or if the recipient isn't present I will work with a photo.

Will I feel anything during the session?

Many clients feel a warm tingling sensation, some say they feel a cooling sensation up and down the body, whilst some clients don't feel anything at all.  There is no right or wrong way to feel during treatment, it is all down to the individual.  Numerous clients become so deeply relaxed that they fall asleep during treatment, and this is absolutely fine too.

      

As the healing is returning your body to its natural state and eliminating toxins within the body, you may experience the following detox sensations during and after your healing session:

  • Sweating

  • Increased urination

  • Trembling

  • Shivering

  • Yawning

  • Flatulence

  • Feeling off balance

  • Disrupted sleep

  • Worsening of symptoms

Healing is always unique to the individual and aimed toward your highest good and therefore these sensations should subside a few days.  This is known as a healing crisis.  It is also worth noting that you may not experience these at all.

How long does a Crystal Reiki session last?

All sessions are 1 hour

 

How many sessions will I need?

 

 

This will be dependent on your case history.  I will discuss treatment options and tailor the plan to suit your circumstances.

HYPNOTHERAPY

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What is the difference between Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis?

Hypnotherapy uses a natural state of deep relaxation to align your unconscious mind with your goals. 

​​

Hypnosis is a naturally occurring trance like state. We go into a trance like state everyday through daydreaming, mediation, watching tv, driving or even reading a book.

Does Hypnotherapy work?

Research has shown that 90% of people can fall into a light trance, however some are more susceptible to suggestion than others.  Being fully committed to the process and approaching Hypnotherapy with an open mind is key to getting the most out of it as scepticism can subconsciously dampen progress.

 

What happens during a Hypnotherapy session?

Prior to the session I will send you a consultation form to complete. During the initial consultation we will discuss your requirements and goals. I will gather information about your lifestyle, medical symptoms and medical history including medication (if relevant).  Once I have this information I will discuss the relevant hypnotherapy techniques and approaches that will support you with your goals. 

​​

After the initial consultation, the hypnotherapy session will begin. The following is the typical structure of a  session:

  •  I will have you make yourself comfortable

  •  Induction, where I will lead you into a state of deep relaxation​

  •  Once you are deeply relaxed, I will begin using the techniques discussed during the consultation to allow the changes  to  take place (change process)

  •  After the change process is complete, I will gradually bring you out of the trance 

  •  We will summarise the session, giving you an opportunity to ask any questions.  I will also give you some self-hypnosis to do in-between sessions.

​​

 

How many sessions will I need?

This is dependant on your circumstances and the reason for which you are seeking hypnosis. For example, smoking cessation, can be delivered in a single session of up to two hours. Other issues may require a longer-term approach with regular weekly/monthly sessions. 

 

How long will hypnotherapy sessions last?

Again this is really dependant on  your circumstances. Sessions can last between 1 to 2 hours.
