Hypnosis is a heightened state of awareness in which the subconscious mind becomes open and receptive to receive positive thoughts, suggestions and images, allowing you to make truly powerful changes in your life. It is a completely natural state that we drop in and out of frequently throughout our daily lives. If you have ever become lost in thought while driving, laughed, cried or jumped while watching a movie, or been so engrossed in your phone that you didn't hear someone speak to you, you've been in a state of hypnosis.
Because it works! Studies show that approximately 95% - 97% of our behavior is housed in the subconscious mind. Our subconscious mind is where our habits, beliefs, reactions and behaviors live. Hypnosis is one of the easiest, most effective tools to gently and effortlessly replace any limiting beliefs and behaviors with positive and long lasting change.
Everyone experiences hypnosis just a little differently. While some people may not be aware of any particular "feeling", others say they experience pleasant feelings like easy, effortless breathing, enjoyably heavy or floating feelings, or tingling sensations throughout their body. There are so many ways in which people describe their trance experiences - nearly everyone states that they feel a deep sense of calm and relaxation following a hypnosis session.
No. Hypnosis is so incredibly relaxing that it may feel similar to those moments just before you drift off to sleep or that feeling as you first begin to gently awake in the morning, but you will hear everything that is said and be aware of what is going on the entire time. In fact, hypnosis works best when you participate in the process.
No. You won't do or say anything you don't want to. You will not cluck like a chicken or bark like a dog. You are completely in control during our session and cannot be made to do or say anything you don't want to do.
Not a chance. Unlike what you may have seen in movies or on television, all trances end, whether formally ended by the hypnotherapist or ended naturally by you.
This varies by individual, what you want to change, and how deeply ingrained the habit or behavior is. While some clients experience profound change in just one or two sessions, others feel a deeper benefit with 12 or more sessions. It is typically recommended that new clients work with a hypnotherapist for 3-6 weekly sessions. While the results can certainly feel magical, hypnosis is not magic and can sometimes take some time to really make those lasting changes.
WHERE DO HYPNOSIS SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
All of our sessions take place either over the phone or via video conferencing. Enjoying sessions from the comfort of your own home or other preferred location allows you to enjoy the deeply relaxed state of hypnosis long after our session ends, without having to fight traffic or rush home.
This means it's important that you choose a place where you will be able to relax and focus entirely on you, without interruptions like phones, friends, family or pets. Because you deserve it.
HOW LONG ARE THE SESSIONS?
Sessions typically last approximately 45 minutes. Please note that my first priority is always you and your healing. This means that, some days we may need a little less time than scheduled, while others we may go just a little longer. Please keep this in mind while choosing your appointment day and time.
IS HYPNOSIS SAFE FOR CHILDREN?
Yes! In fact, it’s often more effective for children than adults because they are more in touch with their imaginations than adults. Hypnosis can help children to resolve all kinds of habits, including bed wetting, anxiety, asthma and more.
