Hello there. I'm Peter Back.
I’m a hypnotherapist and psychoanalyst in private practice here at the
Surrey Hypnotherapy clinic, in the Woking and Guildford area of Surrey, UK.
With the advent in the UK of the coronavirus, and the UK government's sudden 'lockdown' insistence upon travel restrictions, social distancing and social isolation, I was encouraged by many of my clients at the time to see if it might be possible for them to continue their therapy with me using an on-line, internet based, approach - maybe based on using a Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) provider, such as Skype, or similar.
I might stress that I really am indebted to those clients, for all their encouragement at that time, because it did eventually prove possible to overcome the early 'teething problems' and establish a reliable method for providing effective therapy to people online, over the internet - and all without them having to leave the comfort of their own homes !
And of course the effect of this is that travel is now no longer the obstacle to accessing effective therapy that it used to be - and I am now able to easily provide effective therapy to many, many, more people, who may be almost anywhere in the world !
I am very experienced in practising this advanced form of therapy and I really do understand the symptoms and the suffering that my clients have had to endure before coming to see me..
So, if there is something, anything, that you are doing that you really wish that you didn’t – but, try as you might, you just can’t stop yourself. Or if there is something that you really would like to be able to do, but, somehow, you just can’t bring yourself to do it. Just "Speak to Peter....".
If you would like more information on how this successful treatment could benefit you please contact me to arrange a FREE initial, and confidential, consultation, and get started on changing your life straight away.
YOUR NEXT STEP...
Alternatively, please view the following video, for a more complete indication of the types of symptoms that may be helped.
Standard hypnotherapy is a talking therapy that usually requires a client to travel to a therapist's consulting room to meet the therapist for therapy, face to face.
With online hypnotherapy, commonly available VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) software, such as Skype, or Zoom (which provides a safe and secure connection), is used to permit audio and video communication between the therapist and client, using the standard webcams and microphones that are built into almost all laptops, notepads, tablets and smartphones today.
I do offer an initial online consultation, and this does give the opportunity to trial your device setup, and the connection process, before committing to future sessions of therapy.
You just need to be able to have access to a quiet and comfortable place, at home or work, or in your car, where you can talk and relax, in private, without any need for you to get stressed, spending time travelling and parking - and you will have access to the same high quality therapy that you would receive face to face in my consulting room.
Absolutely, online hypnotherapy is just as effective as traditional face to face hypnotherapy, where client and therapist are in the same room together, there is very little difference.
In fact some people seem to feel even more relaxed and comfortable working from their own home, office or car, which can only add to the positive outcome as we work together - this may be because there may be some additional stress in travelling to an appointment, and also possibly in having to deal with comparatively cumbersome anti-coronavirus PPE used by many face to face therapists.
In fact, recent research backs this up, with one report concluding that online therapy lead to better progress and was more effective compared to face to face therapy.
Similarly, a systematic review in the Journal of Medical Internet Research (Vol. 14, No. 4) stated that results “indicate that e-therapy seems to be at least equivalent to face-to-face therapy”.
Using Zoom for your online hypnotherapy sessions couldn’t be easier:
You just need to email me to arrange and agree your appointment for your free initial consultation.
Once we’ve agreed a time for your session, you’ll just need a reliable internet connection and a quiet comfortable place to relax. I'll send you a Zoom meeting invitation email shortly before your appointment which will contain a unique Zoom meeting link for each session appointment. The Zoom meeting link is safe and secure and only you will have access to it.
Zoom is very similar to Skype, just click your link in your meeting invitation email and follow the instructions to join your session.
You can use your laptop, tablet, Iphone or Android smartphone device to join your session.
During your appointment you will change positions between:
When in 'Therapy Mode' you just relax while I work with you to guide you into a state of focussed attention where your mind is more responsive to thoughts, ideas, and suggestions.
The session usually ends with a quick chat, in 'Consultation Mode', where we might talk briefly about your progress during your therapy session, and we can then book your appointment for your next therapy session.
You will need a suitable device for using Zoom with a good microphone and camera, maybe a laptop or a notepad, or tablet or smartphone (Android or iPhone) device.
For best audio you should probably be listening to the audio from your laptop, or your smartphone, through either in-ear ear phones, or through headphones, maybe with a boom microphone attached. Note that a corded connection to ear phones, or headphones, rather than a wireless/Bluetooth connection, can be more reliable than cordless rechargeable earphones which have been known to lose either charge or the wireless connection during a session. Best audio usually seems to be obtained when clients use a Gaming Headset (see Amazon). - so please use a Gaming Headset if you have one available to you.
You will need a sufficiently fast connection to to the internet to enable Zoom to work properly, such that your internet connection supports a smooth transfer of audio and video.
You will need to open a free account on Zoom: https://zoom.us/
Remember to turn off notifications on your devices and smartphones to avoid interruption during your therapy session.
The things that can wrong with Online Hypnotherapy over the internet are primarily concerned with the remote connection, and hence the therapy session, being terminated prematurely by, for example:
The above are just a short list of the types of problems that have occurred at times whilst providing online hypnotherapy to clients.
However I'm pleased to say that the above problems are rare occurences and just require a small amount of care by the client when they set themselves up for their therapy session.
However it should be noted that during your therapy session you will have your eyes closed and be in a state of deep focussed concentration - and should the connection be interrupted by any of the events outlined above you will eventually become aware that the connection has broken, and then 'wake yourself up' and open your eyes, and start to identify and correct the cause of the problem.
And many clients do find it reassuring to know that it is not possible for them to come to any harm through the possible failure of the remote connection whilst they are in hypnosis during online therapy.
I am finding that for some problems online hypnotherapy is at least as effective as face to face therapy in my consulting room - and for some clients and problems it seems that online hypnotherapy may be better, faster, more successful and more effective than traditional face to face therapy in my consulting room.
However it is very important that you do choose the right therapist for you, someone you trust and feel comfortable talking with - I do offer a free initial consultation online which gives us the opportunity to meet and also discuss your problem(s) and the therapy most suitable for your needs.
Accessing the best therapy, in the past, sometimes required long travelling distances. The challenges of long travelling distances have now been removed by the internet. Travelling distance is now no longer an obstacle to you accessing the right therapy for you - and there is now no reason why you should have to continue to put up with your problem because of the excessive travelling distance that might be otherwise be required to access the right therapy for you.
For professional, caring and confidential help, advice, therapy or treatment for, or about, any of the above issues or topics, or similar, please just contact Peter, preferably by e-mail, to arrange an appointment for your free initial consultation - either in person, or online.
