1. How many sessions will I need?

This can be discussed prior to booking as it depends on each individual case. Generally about 3 sessions. Sometimes less, occasionally more.

2. Will I do things I don’t want to do?

Hypnotherapy is not like stage hypnosis. It is safe and relaxing. Even when you are in trance you are aware and cannot be made to do something you don’t want to do.

3. How do I start?

Deciding to make changes can feel like a big step. Start by making contact. Initial questions and concerns can easily be answered over the phone or by email.

4. What are the costs?

1.5 hour initial session The first session allows time to fully understand your goals and your needs and to make a start. £70

1 hour therapy session

Standard session.


4 sessions + Every client and every situation is different.  Sometimes goals can be reached in one or two sessions.  More typically and realistically it will take 3 to 4 sessions - and anxiety-based conditions more.  Where more than four sessions are required, these will be charged at a lower rate.  £55
Stop Smoking Now ! A single session of 2 hours.  This includes a pre-session phone consultation and also a follow-up session should that be necessary. (The fee equates to the money spent on 20 packets. Many smokers would save this amount in a month or less after giving up.) £160

1.5 hour therapy session

Intensive sessions can be beneficial in certain situations. £85
Fees for all sessions are payable at the end of the session by cheque, cash or (preferably) in advance by bank transfer.
Cancellation Policy: Unfortunately life isn’t always simple, but making an appointment is also a part of a commitment to change. Missed appointments, or appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours notice, will be subject to a £20 charge.

5. Who will I see?

Karen Russell-Graham
When I experienced hypnotherapy I discovered at first hand the clarity and focus it creates to solve a particular problem. It was like being helped to find a small and precious object in a huge and cluttered room.
Most importantly it worked.
I have since studied at post-graduate level at the London College of Clinical Hypnosis (www.lcch.co.uk). My previous experience has involved education, creative communication and counselling – extremely useful tools for working in hypnotherapy.
I look forward to meeting you, and am committed to giving you the individual and professional attention you need to achieve your goals. Every client is an individual, and so is every approach.

6. Testimonials
Just wanted to say - thank you so much - hypnotherapy really helped.
I found your sessions to be calm and reassuring, especially for someone who had not tried hypnotherapy before.  I was impressed with the way you explained things for me to work on in my own time as well.
After 34 years of nail-biting and trying everything from foul-tasting varnish to chilli to give up, I decided to try hypnotherapy.  I was determined to give up for myself, but also for my husband and my 3 month old daughter, who I did not want growing up with this awful habit.  Three sessions with Karen and I have nails!  Thank you so much, Karen... my daughter can now grow up seeing Mummy's beautiful nails and I'm looking forward to my manicure!
Hello Karen - just to let you know that the treatment you gave me on 10th March, 2015, has worked!
Well done, and thank you, as I never thought I could give smoking, but you certainly put me on the right path
to success.  I have already saved £160, which is going towards my holiday fund.  Again, a big thank you.

No. Effective hypnotherapy uses a creative mixture of techniques including Counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, NLP and Psychodynamic work. Listening to the needs of the client is a very important start to a session.
