The initial consultation before therapy is probably the most important part of the whole procedure, as this will form the base of the therapy. Its is very important for the therapist to begin gathering information on a client from the moment they first walk through the door, the correct steps that need to be taken in order to make the therapy a success can begin to be formed from that second.
Initial consultation is very important because it’s the first time you are meeting your clients and your clients is meeting you. Sometime just in a first look they don’t like each other and this might happen to you. Without consultation if you had promised to help them then you are stuck in a very tricky situation but by doing this you wont get into this situation. This is the time you and your clients build a relationship and find out more about your clients plus your clients might want to know about you too example, where did you get your degree how long you been practicing etc. your clients need to feel comfortable with you as well and able to trust you. That’s why how you have set up your room, the decoration you think its nice and cosy but your clients might not find it comfortable and dislike it and the way you dress up is also very important...you need to dress up comfortable and simple and casual because you don’t want to look down at them, and don’t want them to be uncomfortable and conscious of how they are dressed up. You can find out how he speaks? Language, words, phrases; he uses...this will help you to prepare your PMR. At the same time, it is also necessary to educate your client about hypnosis. The more the client understands, the more confidence he will have in the hypnotic process. This is the time to establish rapport and trust. By reassuring your client of his safety, he will be receptive to a good working relationship.
