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?
Truly this can be varied dependent on certain factors such as how receptive the individual is as well as the goal that we are addressing. I have worked with clients who have lost 55lbs, quit smoking after a 40 year habit, and reached countless other goals in only a single session.
However, although hypnosis is often accelerated, these results are not typical and generally more sessions are needed for most individuals. Research shows that when compared to other forms of therapy, hypnosis has a higher success rate and often fewer sessions are needed for lasting results.
My standard recommendation depending on circumstances may be to begin with 3-6 sessions.
We will discuss your needs and personal situation.
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!
What do you do as a life coach?
As a trained and skilled life coach, I help to facilitate the session by using powerful questioning to enhance clarity surrounding the issue at hand.
Throughout our sessions you will receive insight and learn to understand and work with your behaviors, thoughts, emotions, and experiences.
I offer guidance, tools, support, and mindset techniques and trainings that provide you with solutions to lasting change- assuming you apply them!
What can you help me with?
If you are motivated to change and READY to put in the effort, I can help you reach a wide range of goals!
I specialize in: smoking cessation, motivation, mindset shifts, success and money related goals, weight loss, self love and confidence, self sabotage, stress and anxiety.
How do I know you are a good fit?
I want you to find the best coach for you! Furthermore, I am very particular about who I work with because I want to offer you the very best solutions and pride myself on making sure this is the best fit for us both!
I recommend you look around to get a feel for what is out there and to see who you connect with.
Find someone trained and trustworthy. Don’t be afraid to ask questions to ensure you feel completely comfortable before getting started. We dive into some deep stuff, feeling 100% comfortable with that level of engagement is important.
You can find more out about myself and my practice on Facebook. The videos and other content that I offer should give you a good idea if you resonate with my style and my approach is one you feel comfortable with!
Who do you work with?
I work with both men and women (despite my naturally affinity for peto-bismol pink ;).
I work with clients who are ready, willing, and motivated for change.
What sets you apart from other coaches?
Although I have the experience (I have been practicing for almost 9 years now) and the training to support my expertise, it truly is about so much more.
- I have firsthand experience. I have been there. For many years I struggled with such debilitating anxiety and depression. I had zero self worth and never thought I could learn to love myself or be happy. I was on several meditations and turned to endless therapies with very little results. The results I experienced through hypnosis were remarkable. For more info into my background and philosophy, read my bio!
2. The results speak for themselves! I am a results oriented practitioner! If something isn’t working, I dive deeper, look at it differently, or tweak it to find a solution that will work. Although the effort is up to you, I offer you all I can to get you the results you are looking for!
Here are some success stories (you can read more on my testimonials page!)
- I had a woman-struggling to lose weight for many years, lose 54lbs after a single session!
- I have had countless clients build their businesses (MLM, real estate, various entrepreneurs) and achieve the drive and success they dreamed of!
- I had a man who had been smoking 3 packs a day for 40 years quit smoking in only 3 sessions!
- I have had the honor to guide transformations that were non-tangible (men and women learning to love themselves for the first time, clients learning to finally speak their mind and value their voice, men and women looking in the mirrors and smiling for the first time) and much more that have been incredible!
I have had clients say things like:
“I don’t know why I didn’t try this sooner!”
“I have achieved more in 3 sessions here than in 30 years of therapy!”
“I have discovered so much about myself. I truly know more about myself than ever before!”
“Knowing you and working with you has been such a gift in my life.”
