A Day In The Life Part 3 – Wednesdays

A Day In The Life Of A Hypnotherapist – Wednesday Harley Street

Wednesdays I have a clinic at No 1 Harley Street, London. It’s a great address to work from because of the medical associations with Harley St, but it is surprisingly easy to work from there.

I’m not a great fan of having to commute with the ‘rush hours’ so I tailor my day to avoid that.


Assuming I am up early enough, I do my hours writing/projects and then catch up on a few emails before breakfast with the children, and the usual school business.

Then I may have a coffee and chat with Alison (my wife/partner) about business plans, projects, advertising and so on.

When you run your own business you are effectively the Marketing Department, Finance Department & Product/Service Delivery Department all rolled into one person and you will naturally veer towards doing the bit you enjoy and avoid the bits you don’t enjoy. For your business to succeed, you need to take care of each of those areas – but don’t worry, I’ll tell you how to make that very simple, as part of the Business Advice & Support section of the training.

I usually get the 11 am train to Central London arriving about 12 pm, giving me an hour to grab a light lunch ready for my first client at 1 pm.


What you’ll discover when working with clients is that you get into a flow when you start to see one after the other, so I like to book in one continuous stream of clients with virtually no breaks.

Appointment times typically run 1 pm, 2 pm, 3 pm, 4 pm, 5 pm, 6.10 pm, 7.20 pm and occasionally 8.20 pm.

This means that I can see 7 or 8 clients back to back straight off.

You don’t have to do it this way, it just suits me and my personality. I allow 10 minute gaps for the later sessions in case I am running behind slightly, plus at that time there is no reception cover so clients buzz directly into my room. The 10 minute gap reduces the risk of arriving clients interrupting the previous session.

In London Harley street I see mostly people from London, but every month there are always people who have travelled long distance – either from other parts of the UK or Internationally.

Typical clients have included people needing help with …

Psychological Support Going Through Major Life Change

OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)

Improving Trust In Relationships

Overcoming Sexual Problems (Male and Female)

Dealing With Physical Ailments – Pain,  IBS,  Tinnitus


Overcoming Alcoholism

Boosting Self Confidence For Presentations

Coaching For European Championship Finals

Extra Support For Patients at The Priory

Resolving Childhood Traumas


Liaising With Private GP’s To provide Support To Their Patients

Trichotillomania (Hair-Pulling)

Nightime Food Bingeing

Motivation and Success In Business

… and more.

As you can see the list is very varied.

Again, some of these people required just one or two visits; others were attending as part of a course of treatment.

I only take bare minimum notes in sessions, and I don’t need to look at any notes between clients (because I don’t really have any). I find that working this way I am ‘in the zone’ and can give ALL my attention to what the person in front of me is saying.

When you first start, you will most likely want to take it much more easily, and probably keep a much more detailed written record of what you do, so you can refer back to it when learning – but you will get plenty of practice of that on the training.

In summary, on a busy day in London I can see 7 or 8 clients @ £130 per hour, so that equates to around £900 – £1000 for the day, less expenses.

Money means different things to different people, but that is a reasonable income for a days work for me. On the training, I will help you create and implement a business plan that is exciting and will work for you.
