Frequently Asked Questions
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness. Although it is derived from the Greek word, ‘sleep,’ it is actually somewhere in between sleep and awake. With hypnosis, there is an intent or a focus to alter a specific behavior or achieve a goal.
Is hypnosis safe?
Yes, hypnosis is very safe and effective. In fact, each one of us experiences altered states of consciousness throughout the day. For example, when watching a movie the experience of ‘getting lost’ in the movie is an altered state of consciousness.
What will my hypnosis experience be like?
Hypnosis is a very relaxing experience. You will be given suggestions that will allow your body and mind to relax and become receptive to the goals that we will discuss prior to the hypnosis. The client remains in control at all times and you will likely remember and be able to recall your experience.
What can hypnosis help with?
Hypnotherapy can help with (but isn’t limited to): Fear/phobias, stress, anxiety, quitting smoking, weight loss, pregnancy and childbirth, insomnia, pain management, athletic performance, pediatric concerns, concentration/test taking, fear, confidence, stress, sleeping troubles, and more.
How many Sessions will I need?
This can be a bit tricky to answer. The simple answer is that I have seen a smoker quit smoking after one session or it has taken up to 8 sessions. No two circumstances are alike. We will discuss your needs and personal situation. I do my very best to assist you in achieving your goals in as few sessions as possible.
Does the hypnotherapist have control over my mind?
No, not at all. All hypnosis is self hypnosis. If a hypnotherapist were to suggest something to a client that is against said client’s moral values, wants, or needs, then the suggestion would have no power. Same goes if a client comes in for an issue like to quit smoking, and if that client doesn’t really want to quit smoking, then the outcome wouldn’t be achieved.
What if I don’t come out of hypnosis?
You will. There is no way to get ‘stuck’ in hypnosis. You will gently return to awareness after your session, likely feeling very relaxed and peaceful!
What will I recall after the session?
It is likely that you be able to recall the session. However, in the event that you aren’t able to recall everything clearly, rest assured, I can fill in the blanks and the results will be just as effective!
