Hypnosis FAQ

I'm really excited to share more about hypnosis and how it's such an effective tool for self-improvement and behavior modification. I'm SO pleased with the changes my clients are experiencing!

Hypnosis is a great way to shift your mindset and root out those old, limiting beliefs that are keeping you stuck. If you're struggling with a stubborn problem, or an unproductive habit that you just can't seem to let go of, hypnosis can be a great solution. Read on to learn more about hypnosis and how my clients are seeing real results (in a thoroughly relaxing, enjoyable environment).


What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation, similar to meditation, where your subconscious mind becomes more accessible and suggestible, thus allowing new ideas to be introduced without the conscious mind acting as “gatekeeper.”

You may have a very clear vision of what you think you should be doing, but you just can't seem to do it. Hypnosis is a way to bring your subconscious thoughts and beliefs into alignment with your conscious desires, which often creates effortless change in behavior!

Your conscious mind is the part that you have control over. It’s the critical, thinking part that can analyze information, develop strategy, and make decisions. Conversely, your subconscious is the part of your mind that controls your instincts and behavior -- your primal flight or fight response, and your deeply held beliefs and fears. The subconscious is where all your old stories and memories are stored, and it often dictates unproductive behaviors as a result of old patterns of thinking. Your subconscious is what needs to be reprogrammed in order to change undesirable thoughts and behaviors.


How can hypnosis help me?

You’re probably able to identify at least one thing in your life that you’d like to change -- whether it’s smoking, out-of-control eating, difficult relationships, low self-esteem, feeling of overwhelm, poor self-care, or time-management. You may have tried to change these behaviors or patterns time and time again, but feel stuck.

Through hypnosis, we can access the subconscious and suggest new patterns and new stories that will result in more productive behaviors.

For example, you may know that eating large amounts of chocolate right before bed isn’t serving you very well, but you continue doing it because of some old association, habit, or belief system. By tapping into the subconscious, it’s possible to dismantle those old beliefs and replace them with a new story: the chocolate isn’t helping you, you’d rather find a more productive coping mechanism, or that you don’t even like chocolate that much and would be just as satisfied with a good book.

The thing I hear time and time again from my clients is that they notice things improving, and it feels completely effortless!


Will I be out of control when I’m hypnotized?

No. You’re always conscious and in total control of what’s happening. You may not even feel like it’s working, because you’re still awake and mentally present the whole time. Your participation and willingness are essential components of the process. The more relaxed and receptive you are, the more effective the sessions will be, but you’re always in the driver’s seat.


Can you fix my problems in just one session?

As with anything, the length of treatment depends on your history, how long you’ve been struggling with the specific issue, and your personality type. Many times, a short-lived, rather simple behavior change can be accomplished in a relatively brief treatment period, but other issues may take much longer. Hypnosis is exciting and effective, but it’s not magic. We’re still working with the reality of changing deeply held, perhaps very old, beliefs and fears.

Hypnosis is a relaxing, pleasant experience, and you may find that having regular sessions can support your ongoing personal development. It’s a form of self-improvement that many people find very appealing.


Can anyone be hypnotized?

You must be lucid, willing, and mentally present to be hypnotized. There’s no one personality type that is better than another, but the willingness of the client is essential to success. I can’t hypnotize anyone who doesn’t want to participate, or isn’t able to participate because of some kind of impairment.


How much does it cost?

Each 60-minute session is $125.


Can you do hypnosis remotely?

I prefer to see local clients in person, and will do phone/Facetime sessions for others.
