About Put Yourself First Hypnotherapy

My name is Keith Standen – Hypnotherapy Certified Practitioner

In my previous ‘life’ I was a tour operator hosting specialist group holidays around Europe for single travellers from single parents to seniors.

When meeting so many people in close holiday proximity, conversation would often turn to their own lives and it was a constant eye-opener to discover that behind the smiles and holiday banter, many were often hurting for all sorts of reasons, certainly the subjects of stress, loneliness and confidence came up a lot.

So some three years ago I decided on a change of direction and following 15 months of intensive training, I qualified as a hypnotherapist and began using those new skills to help others in their lives, a very satisfying feeling.

My training, work experience and any achievement

Hypnotherapy Practitioner – IANLPC, ILM

I undertook my initial certification training at the Centre of Excellence in Cheshire. In order to provide my clients with a full and professional level of service, I continued my training with a programme called 5-PATH®, an advanced hypnotherapy process created in 2006 by Calvin Banyan, globally one of the most recognised and respected experts in this field. I now work exclusively using 5-PATH®.

Price List

Special Online Booking Offers


Sessions are scheduled for between 60 to 75 minutes, (60 minutes is not always quite long enough to complete a session, so I schedule sessions up to 75 minutes, there is no additional cost). To maintain momentum and continuity, sessions should ideally be no more than one week apart.

5-PATH® sessions – £75.
5-PATH® Stop Smoking Hypnosis – £180 (*2 x 60/90 minutes session)

*Smoking – certain criteria regarding your smoking history means we can often complete the programme in just 2 sessions, (the first 2 phases of 5-PATH®). Where your smoking history involves an emotional element and is more deeply embedded, this may well require the full 5-PATH® process to get the work successfully and permanently completed. I am happy to explain this more fully by phone where we can discuss your requirements prior to you making any commitment.

This is one of those ‘how long is a piece of string’ questions, everyone is different so there is no ’one size fits all’ answer. 5-PATH® is a process that must be worked through to be effective.

Please note: 5-PATH® does not mean 5 sessions.
There are a total of 5 phases, (in many cases the 5th phase is not required). In most instances 4 sessions are required to complete the work successfully, however, depending on the complexity of the issue being addressed, it can require more or fewer sessions, the exception to this may be smoking cessation, (see above*).

I schedule 4 sessions to ensure your future session times are reserved within a timely period, otherwise delays between sessions may occur when my diary is full, this also makes it easier to cancel pre-booked sessions.

Ultimately success is what matters and sometimes the process can take time depending on the issue, so please be wary of suggestions that just 1 or 2 hour-long sessions are all that’s required for any issue. Realistically this is not possible to achieve the level of success and the permanency you need and it would be unethical of me to claim otherwise.

In hypnotherapy we will work together to achieve the results required using the minimum number of sessions.

Any pre-booked or pre-paid sessions that are not required are obviously not charged.

It’s important that you be on time for your sessions as I may not be able to extend beyond the allocated time due to later client appointments.

I require 48 hours notice if you need to cancel or re-schedule. Cancellations or re-schedules inside this time may be charged unfortunately, as a session space will have been held for you to the exclusion of other clients. Changes, cancellations or re-schedules made earlier than this will not be charged.

Payments can be made by cash, credit / debit card or bank transfer, (bank details available on request).
