You’ve Got Questions. I’ve Got Answers.

Below are answers to the most commonly asked questions that we receive about hypnosis and our programs. If you have a question that is not answered below please visit our contact page and submit it to us there.
What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of highly focused attention and concentration. It is also 100% natural and normal. Through hypnosis, you enter a state of heightened receptivity that allows you to more easily rebuild habits and behaviors along with emotions, beliefs and feelings.

The bottom line is hypnosis is a naturally occurring state that you likely have experienced hundreds to even thousands of times in the past. When used properly, it can be a tremendous tool for utilizing the power of the mind to make changes and take control of your life.
Can all people be hypnotized?
Yes, as long as the person is willing to be hypnotized. Many people believe that hypnosis won’t work on them but an experienced professional should be able to help you achieve a hypnotic state where you maintain awareness but are also able to make changes and improvements to better your life. When you schedule a session with me, the techniques and program will be customized to what works best for you.
What is the difference between a hypnotist and a hypnotherapist?

In truth, there really isn’t a difference. The titles are pretty much used interchangeably. In fact, most hypnosis organizations give their graduates who complete their training programs their choice of using either title.

There is currently an ongoing legislative issue involving the term “therapy” (but not “hypnosis”). The issue involves title protection as many forms of therapy are licensed. There is currently no licensing program for hypnotists in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, or Australia. All hypnotist training and regulations are handled by private organizations.
Will I lose control when under hypnosis?
No, you can forget what you’ve seen in TV and the movies. You will remain aware during hypnosis. That means you can’t be made to do anything against your morals and you can’t be made to tell secrets that you don’t want to tell. Think you are too “strong-willed” to be hypnotized? Often, these people find it easier to reach a hypnotic state due to their ability to focus and concentrate during a session.
Will I go to sleep during a session?
No, hypnosis does not put you to sleep. In fact, the results of hypnosis are quite to the contrary. You actually enter a heightened state of awareness. You will remain aware of your surroundings and of what is happening. You will continue to hear noises during hypnosis and you will remember everything that happens.
Can hypnosis be dangerous?
No, hypnosis is completely safe when practiced by a professional hypnotist. Again, it is a natural state of mind that we all experience multiple times in our lives. Hypnosis was recognized by the American Medical Association in 1958. One word of caution: hypnosis could be potentially dangerous if you enter the state while operating machinery like a car. For that reason, you should not listen to hypnosis audios when around vehicles and other machinery.
What does hypnosis feel like?
Most of those who have been “hypnotized” say they feel very relaxed and pleasantly lethargic. There is no magic feeling that washes over you. You also don’t black out or lose consciousness. You will remain alert and be perceptive to the suggestions you are receiving.
Why would hypnosis not work for someone?

The success of a hypnosis session depends on the willingness of the client to be hypnotized and on the skills of the hypnotist to do the hypnotizing.

If either of these two things is lacking the process may not work. For example, a person who really wants to quit smoking and believes hypnosis can help him or her accomplish that has a much greater chance for success than someone who doesn’t really want to quit and is only undergoing hypnosis due to the urgings of a spouse.
How long does it take to begin to see changes?
The good news is people often begin to experience benefits of hypnosis after the first session. We recommend that you take at least a month’s worth of sessions before deciding if the process is working for you because all people are different. What works quickly for one person may take longer for another. I also strive to provide clients with the most effective hypnosis program for their goals, personality and time requirements.
How much does hypnosis cost?
Fees can range depending on the program that is best for a client. What program is best can’t be determined until I meet with the client and get a better understanding of their needs and goals. At that point, we can discuss which program is best and how much that program will cost.
How are sessions conducted?

All sessions are conducted remotely via Zoom, Skype, Facetime or even through a traditional phone call. Don’t worry, remote sessions have been shown to be just as effective as face-to-face meetings.

In our sessions, you remain in control the whole time! You won’t be “knocked “out” or put to sleep – that is a misconception about hypnosis. The sessions are not about me taking control, but rather about me using hypnosis techniques and coaching to give you the control you seek – the control to break free from limitations and make lasting improvements.
