Pricing, terms and much more…
Mr Budge has really been of great assistance for several years in patients where subconscious stressors and drivers have caused patients to have physical illness or emotional issues. As such he has been of huge help with patients suffering with affective disorders, phobias, anxiety issues and suicidal ideation. At the same time he has referred patients to me where he considers medication to be of value so is not messianic in believing that hypnotism is the cure for all ills!! I can highly recommend him in helping patients understand that there are emotional drivers that have to be managed and that pills are not always enough. — Dr Richard Brink, Specialist Family Physician, Cedar Road, Fourways, 0027-11-840-5340
Your sessions are conducted at the serene and beautiful Protea Ranch, ±26km north of Fourways.
Thomas begins consulting as early as 07:00 and takes the last booking for the day around 17:00. Weekends are regrettably unavailable for private one-on-one sessions.
Weekends may however be requested for group sessions comprising a party of 5 or more. Use the [ contact ] facility in the footer to find out more.
A private cottage is also available for anyone wishing to escape the city stress and to retreat for a while into the quiet solitude of Protea Ranch. Thomas and Yvonne are at hand to offer you therapeutic help and five-star cuisine. A variety of body massage treatments are only 5 minutes away by road or an easy 20 minute stroll on foot. Use the [ contact ] facility in the footer to find out more.

Articles and interviews
Quit Smoking, the best in the business
Talk on Heath, Radio 702, Malcolm Ferreira, 21 January 2006
Fears and Phobias, Radio 702, Tim Modise, 7 July 2006
All fees are to be fully settled at the time of your appointment. Cash and all major chip-and-pin cards are accepted.
Unless quoted differently, your first appointment is 1½ hours long and is charged at R1,350/session. All follow-up sessions are 1 hour, presently charged at R900/session. All Quit Smoking sessions are charged differently at R1,800/session for a 2 hour appointment.
Transformational work is suitable for children from ages 6—14. Children under six usually don't benefit much from some of the services offered so please check if you are in any doubt. The duration of all sessions with children are ¾ hour long and charged at a fee of R600/session.
Medical aid and other funding
Due to the non-medical nature of Thomas' work, most medical aid societies won't pay for your private sessions. With a little clever persuasion however, you might convince your boss to allow you time off work or to arrange a group programme. You might also find that your company has an Employee Wellness Fund that could sponsor some of your fees.
Concessions and discounts
I'll never turn anybody away because of his or her inability to pay. I will always see clients deserving of a reduced fee and am very flexible about my rates. I will even see them for free but I know that this defies the laws of reciprocity and makes it difficult for him or her to easily seek my help again because he or she may feel embarrassed or inconsiderate asking for more free help. So, I'm happy to accept whatever amount my client feels is a fair and reasonable price to pay — an amount he or she feels is is a fair amount to spend in order to receive the benefits I offer.
You may apply for discounts in writing by sending an email using the [ contact ] feature at the foot of this page or by adding a comment to your online booking request.
Discounts are considered on a per-session basis.
Subsistence, accommodation and travel costs
Thomas consults at Protea Ranch (±26km north of Fourways, Gauteng, South Africa). If he is to travel from Protea Ranch, SA&T costs will be charged over and above the aforementioned fees.
Number of sessions needed and the gap between sessions
It generally takes 3 — 6 sessions for most interventions to work properly. Occasionally, some interventions require less or even more (quit smoking, for instance, is usually accomplished in just one session). The period between your sessions varies depending upon the issues that need addressing. Your sessions are usually spaced about a month apart for maximum benefit. Having said this however, there are always exceptions to the rule and one would obviously increase session frequency when dealing with some urgent matters where one needs to work at a faster pace.
On arriving at Protea Ranch
You should aim to arrive fifteen minutes before your scheduled time. If you happen to arrive sooner, please wait in your vehicle, especially if there is already another car in the parking space. There isn't a waiting room and there are dogs on the property. Thomas will meet you at your car as soon as practically possible.

Terms & Conditions
Scope of work
The information and advice given during your sessions are not intended as a substitute to consulting a qualified health professional. If you have any reason to suspect physical illness, you should consult a doctor. If you have unresolved psychological and/or psychiatric conditions, please consult a qualified medical therapist. The techniques used are non-diagnostic and non-medical.
It is a growing and unfortunate habit of some to book and then cancel at the last minute or worse, to just not show on the day. It is therefore with much regret that the following arrangement is necessary: you will receive email and sms reminders before your session. Appointments may be cancelled with 48 hours notice at no charge. Late cancellations and no-shows will be charged in full. We thank you for your understanding.
The cancellation policy for group workshops and special events is available on request.
Confidentiality and Privacy
Your confidentiality is always professionally and strictly upheld.
Depending upon the nature of your session, and only with your express permission, some sessions might be recorded for teaching purposes. Thomas also provides professional education to qualified students and an intern could be present during your session. These advanced students are all bound by Professional Ethics and Codes of Conduct.

Wow, today I'm feeling AWESOME! there's a feeling of pure Freedom now… I feel like the world has so much to offer me now thanks to being off Weed and Cigs. Thank you again for your help Thomas. People at work have been very impressed by my progress and positive change in my personality. My relationship with my wife has even improved… she feels so much happier now, and so do I. — PD
Thank you for this morning and helping me discover so much about myself. Currently I am completely overwhelmed and do not know how to contain my thoughts and emotions. I want nothing more than to hold on to the peace and tranquillity I felt, which I haven't felt since I was a child. I felt so safe and secure with you there and I just wanted to thank you for being so gentle with my memories and emotions and helping me face these monsters I have obviously been afraid of for so long. — LD
I would like to say a special thanks to Tom as my mentor, teacher and the person who reviewed my assignment ahead of my submitting the work to the SAIH. Without Tom's enthusiasm and his excellent way of working with his students I would not have been able to deliver the sort of work that the SAIH expects from its students. — GP, Hypnotherapist
Your generosity of spirit, time, expertise and caring has touched me profoundly. — JP
