Best time and day for therapy?

The best time to have therapy varies from person to person. In the same way some people are larks and owls, therapy – especially hypnotherapy may be better in the morning, for others it could replace an afternoon nap.

Everyone has different ways of coping with the deeply relaxed feeling both Human Givens and Hypnotherapy create. It often inspires people to just get on, whereas some have had to go home and have a nap.

It will also depend on the type of problem you’re dealing with. If work is the problem and you feel that an early appointment means you have to face work afterwards, then perhaps the afternoon would be a better fit.

Try to schedule some downtime after a session.

You don’t want to be rushing anywhere, especially a meeting after you’ve had such a relaxing experience.

Perhaps go for a walk, potter about at home, read a book or have a bath to continue the deep relaxed feelings.

One reason we work on Saturdays is that people go to work during the week. Richard and I then have Sunday and Monday off. Penny used to work evenings to cater to working people but found that it was too tiring and it interfered with my sleep patterns.

I encourage clients to use the same day and time to help plan my schedule, but if that’s not possible, it’s fine to move sessions to different times and days to see what works best. I often can’t guarantee a time on Saturday because it’s so popular.
