Hypnotherapy in Ely & Newmarket: Lockdown Three Update
I hope that you had a good Christmas and have been able to enter the New Year in positive spirits. Things were certainly different this festive season but I hope you and your loved ones are all healthy and well.
Christmas in our household, like many others I am sure, was fairly low key with plenty of time for exercise, guitar playing, games and a few good movies.
As no doubt you’ll have seen, just before Christmas it was announced that several areas, including Cambridgeshire and Suffolk, were being moved to Tier 4 Covid-19 restrictions (at that time, the most stringent of the tiers). In fact, this was going to be a Tier 4 update on my hypnotherapy sessions. However, events have moved apace and this is now a Covid-19 lockdown three update instead.
Lockdown restrictions mean that I am only able to offer online hypnotherapy sessions until the lockdown ends. This covers my hypnotherapy sessions in Ely and Newmarket, and it means that once again all of my sessions are back being delivered online through Skype and Zoom.
This is the same arrangement that needed to be put in place during the two lockdowns last year. It worked very well during those weeks and I was still able to help many, many people with issues such as anxiety, worry, fear and stress (whether pandemic-related or otherwise).
I’ve been getting great feedback from clients who have worked online with me, even if some may have preferred something more face to face had the option been possible. Over the last decade, and as supported by the research and evidence, online hypnotherapy sessions can produce results similar to face to face sessions.
So for the time being everything is back online to keep us all safe, yet fingers crossed we can all soon enjoy once again meeting in person.
It saddens me to see so many therapists, including hypnotherapists, posting online that they will still offer face to face sessions. Legally this is incorrect according to the advice I’ve sought and received. More than that, it suggests that they value your cash more than your safety because therapy sessions (save for some acute work involving risk of physical harm or death) can be equally effectively conducted online (see below for more on this). We’d all prefer to be able to meet in person, yet those therapists who offer face to face sessions during the lockdown are failing in their duty of care towards you to keep you safe (and potentially continuing the spread of Covid-19, contributing to illness and pressure on the NHS, and keeping us all under restrictions for longer).
The Effectiveness of Online Hypnotherapy Sessions
People often ask me whether online hypnotherapy sessions are as effective as more traditional face to face sessions. Certainly in my own experience they can be just as effective in helping you to deal with issues such as anxiety, stress, worry, fear and weight loss, as well as a host of other issues.
To answer this question in much more depth I carried out a review of the research and wrote about this in a recent article here on my website. The research findings support my own experience in finding that online psychological interventions are as effective as those carried out face-to-face. As technology has improved and we have all become more used to communicating online (particularly during the pandemic), I’d expect positive results and client satisfaction with online hypnotherapy to have continued to improve.
