What to expect from the sessions

Rui uses a combination of techniques from clinical hypnotherapy and psychology. During the first session you will expose your problem or situation, and start working towards your goal until you achieve it. You will be followed at the pace that suits you best and every session is bespoken to your needs.

It is recommended that for the first session you book a two hours session to give you enough time to do some therapy. During the first session you will also be advised about the number of sessions you may need to overcome your problem.

Hypnosis is a very agreeable and peaceful state of consciousness and Rui uses hypnotherapy during most of his therapeutic sessions, however, some sessions such as coaching may not include hypnosis.

You can speak your language

The sessions are in English, but if it is easier we can speak French, Portuguese or Italian.
