Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose us?

ONE LIFE are passionate about what we do and committed to delivering the best possible service to our clients. We are also the only practicing hypnotherapy clinic in Aberdeen to offer the choice of being seen by a male or female therapist.

What happens at a session?

The first session begins with an Initial Consultation where we explain the science behind hypnotherapy and how it can help make positive and lasting change. This is an opportunity to find out more about you and answer any questions you may have. This is followed by a brief hypnosis session lasting approx. 15 minutes. You will be provided with a free hypnotherapy recording at the end of the initial consultation which you can listen to at home

Each subsequent session starts by discussing how your week has been and reinforcing all the positive changes you are making. This helps to create a more positive perspective on your quality of life, which is then followed by a focused hypnosis session.

Will you turn me into a chicken?

No. We promise! You remain in complete control under hypnosis and you are always aware of what’s happening. Your mind may drift but you will still receive and understand the positive suggestions being made to you.

What if I don’t want to talk about something?

Then we don’t. ONE LIFE practice Solution Focused Hypnotherapy which encourages our clients to move forward and find positive answers rather than dwelling on the past.

How many sessions will I need?

Every client is different, so we can’t give a definitive number. However, we work quickly here and positive changes will occur from the first session. Stop Smoking, however, is a single session lasting approximately 90 minutes.

What can hypnotherapy help with?

Our services page lists some of them but there are many more conditions hypnotherapy can help with. Please get in touch and we can discuss your particular needs in more detail.

Is hypnotherapy suitable for children and teenagers?

Yes, we see clients from age ten. We adapt the sessions for young people. We ask an adult to accompany under 16’s for the Initial Consultation but the remainder of the treatment will be one to one.

Can I bring someone with me?

Of course. We request that sessions are one to one, but there is a waiting area  after initial introductions have been made.

Is there parking?

Yes. Free on-site parking is available
