ONLINE Session requirements

If you are not able to get to one of our practice locations, or would prefer to have your session in the comfort of your own home, you can now have an online session with Phil.

All you need is a computer with a broadband internet connection and a space where you will be comfortable and undisturbed.

Computer set-up

Computer or tablet (but not a mobile-phone) with:

  1. Healthy broadband internet connection
  2. Video camera
  3. Microphone
  4. Headphones or ear-buds make a huge difference
  5. Appropriate software: Skype software and a Skype account (free to download and set up from here) or familiarity with Zoom (no account required.)

Session preparation


As soon as you know you will be having a Skype session, add Phil to your Skype contacts (Skype ID: philbenjamin) so that he has your contact details.

You will receive a reminder message 15 minutes before the start time of your session.


You will receive a link in your confirmation email from Phil, that you should click on about 10 minutes before the session starts. This will walk you through installing the software, and leave you ready and waiting for Phil to join you.

Prepare a quiet space where you will be undisturbed. (It is your responsibility to ensure that the room is comfortable and you will not be disturbed during the session. The session may be terminated if Phil feels that the room is inappropriate for the session.)

The session itself

Phil will join you with either Skype or Zoom at the designated time. You will then have a face to face consultation.
Arrange yourself such that you are visible to the video camera so that Phil can monitor you properly throughout the session. The computer or tablet cannot sit on your body due to the movement that will occur.
Once the hypnosis session is over, it is concluded with the usual final conversation or — by prior agreement — you may be left to rest peacefully.
To gain maximum benefit, it is best to then spend a little time resting before going about your usual business.

Payment for the session

The fee is £250 for the session, or £400 for smoking cessation. You will receive an email confirming your session and instructing you how to make payment online.
Your session is only confirmed once payment has been made.
Please make payment at least 48 hours before your session.
