“What’s it like to be hypnotized?”

Because hypnosis has a sense of mystery about it a common question I get is “what’s it like to be hypnotized?”

A lot of people think hypnosis is like sleep because what they have seen are people completely relaxed and appearing to be asleep and unconscious. The truth is they are very much aware what is being told to them.

Everyone has a slightly different experience but what hypnotized people have in common is that hypnosis is a highly focused state of concentration. With that in mind, imagine being both completely relaxed and comfortable and focusing intensely on something that is important and meaningful to you. That is what it’s like to be hypnotized.

Within that highly focused and relaxed state you will create, plan and rehearse new habits, responses and behaviors that seemed impossible when you were trying to consciously control them. The hypnotic process also creates a powerful opportunity to directly address subconscious processes that no longer help you and change them directly.

Remember, it is the RESULT that matters. Some people will say “I don’t think I was hypnotized” but they are changed! They still get their result.

Heroin, Methamphetamine and Hypnosis

I would like to describe my experience with hypnosis and serious drug abuse, specifically heroin and methamphetamine (meth).  I’ve had experience working with drug addiction and want to share my insights with those who know someone suffering from addiction.

Addiction is a profoundly painful condition. Withdraws from heroin can be extremely painful. For some people hypnosis can eliminate or reduce the discomfort of withdraw but it is not something I, as a hypnotist, want to deal with. There is a detox period of up to a week a heroin addict must go through to get over the physical withdraws.  At that time I’m willing to help them get rid of the mental and emotional dependency with hypnosis. At that point hypnosis can be very helpful at building up a stronger sense of self as a person who is drug free.

One should expect a lot of other work be done outside of the hypnotists office. Removing familiar triggers to use is important. Often that means changing the places one regularly visits where drug use happens and removing the people the user associates with. This alone can be a lot harder than visiting a hypnotist but the hypnosis will help provide good internal, mental and emotional support.

I have helped people quit drugs with hypnosis alone but I remind people it’s best to build a very strong support system of family, friends and care givers. Every drug counselor will tell you quitting is easier when you have people behind you to help.

When someone asks if I can help them get free of drugs I remind them I’m not a doctor or drug counselor and I’m very cautious taking on anyone with a serious drug problem. I will give my assistance only the right conditions.

Many drug counselors will tell you the emotional maturity of a addict will stop when they begin their drug use, thus a 15 year heroin use, who started at 18 may not be more emotionally mature than any 18 year old, despite the fact they are 32 years of age. This

I want to always make it clear that I am not a doctor or drug counselor, I’m a hypnotist, plain and simple. If someone asks if I can help them get off meth or heroin I take it very seriously and want them to know my expectations.

How Much Is Hypnosis Worth?

Are you shopping for a hypnotist?
Are you wondering what you should pay for hypnosis?

Let me offer a perspective that comes from 20 years as a professional hypnotist.

It’s understandable that you be shopping for the best deal. What you’ll find in terms of payment for hypnosis services will vary widely. Here is what you may find:

  • $50-$100 a session and recommend 5 sessions.
  • One session $200-$500. Period. Often referred to as the “One Session Wonder”.
  • Multiple sessions over weeks costing $1200-$5000.

For a moment put aside any thought of what you’ll be paying. Consider what you want instead. Most people want a result. They want to be free of tobacco cravings, or anxiety. They want to get rid of their late night snacking habit or to deal with stress more productively.

Think about the RESULT you want and ask yourself  “how much would I pay for that”? Depending on how important the change is you might be willing to pay a LOT. What you want is a RESULT not just a good deal.  There should be other considerations than price.

Most importantly, you should feel confidence in the hypnotist you hire.

Here’s what you can expect from New Hampshire Hypnosis when it comes to service and cost. The cost of a hypnosis program is $400. A hypnosis program includes three mandatory sessions and unlimited follow-up sessions as needed. As of today, June 2018, no one pays for hypnosis, they pay for a result. Sessions are usually a week apart. After the third session, if the client feels more work is needed there’s no additional charge.

If you have any further questions about hypnosis, please call New Hampshire Hypnosis (603) 589-8033 and my secretary will transfer you directly to me, your hypnotist, David Barron.

David Barron has helped over 10,000 people since he began his profession hypnosis practice in 1998. He is the author of several books on hypnosis and influence and teaches hypnosis to qualified professionals.

The Unseen Expense of Smoking

Simply knowing you should quit smoking isn’t usually enough to make it happen. Warning labels on cigarette packages become just another form of white noise…even though you know they are right. An annoying cough and heaviness in your chest begs you to quit smoking. In spite of the impact to your health there is a considerable negative impact on something else – your pocketbook.

Is It Overlooking the Obvious or Denial?

Throwing a few dollars toward a pack of smokes seems harmless, like the cost to your health, smoking has a cumulative impact on your long term finances.  Considering the big picture of how small expense add up you should remember that According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention , the average cost of a pack of cigarettes is $6.28, which means a pack-a-day habit sets you back $188 per month or $2,292 per year. Ten years of smoking comes with a $22,920 price tag.

If you’re thinking electronic cigarettes are less expensive you would be wrong. It’s just another way to feed a habit that dose more harm than good to your health and finances. A pack of cigarettes you smoke carries an additional $35 in health-related costs.

Think of the BIGGER expense

The cost of smoking adds up and costs you in more ways than you can first imagine. Health and Money are just the most obvious there is also a risk of lost respect in a world where smoking is no longer a respectable pastime. Smoking also sets an example to the people you most care about. The costs keep going up and up.

You are a wiser person when you decide to stop smoking. You will also discover that you are a stronger person too. Hypnosis has been shown to be one of the most effective methods to become a lifelong non-smoker.

Make the call.

Hypnosis Over Skype. Yes, it really works!

Because I help a LOT of people over Skype I made this video to answer a few questions.

It is directed both to possible hypnosis clients and to hypnotists who have thought about adding Skype hypnosis to their services.

The Simplest and Easiest Stop Smoking Method EVER – and it’s free!!!

smoking-nuns260x185Let me be clear, this is an experiment and if you’re a smoker who wants to quit smoking you’re invited to take part.

This idea came about by asking myself “What is the very smallest change someone could do that would lead to them quitting smoking?

It’s pretty simple actually, mindlessly simple! But there are some rules you have to follow. Simple rules … very simple rules.

Here they are:

1) Every day, at least once a day, say with meaning the words “I’m a non-smoker.” You don’t have to say it to anyone but yourself. In front of a mirror is good. Once a day is enough.

2) Say it as though you really mean it.

3) Vow to say those words with meaning at least once a day for the rest of your life.

4) You are FORBIDDEN to feel guilty about smoking. If you decide to smoke, then smoke. It’s your decision.


You are under NO obligation to stop smoking or to change your smoking habit in ANY way.  When you decide to smoke a cigarette smoke it.

….and everyday you are going to say “I’m a non-smoker” with meaning.

If  you decide to not have a cigarette, fine.

….and everyday you are going to say “I’m a non-smoker” with meaning.

If you decide to try something to quit smoking, like the gum, cold turkey or The Patch, GREAT give it your very best.

….and everyday you are going to say “I’m a non-smoker” with meaning.

If you decide to use hypnosis to stop smoking, GREAT! I’ll be happy to help you.

….and everyday you are going to say “I’m a non-smoker” with meaning.

And if at some point you decide to never pick up a cigarette again, Wonderful!

….and everyday you are going to say “I’m a non-smoker” with meaning.

The Theory

The reason this works is that you are subtly forcing yourself to see yourself as a non-smoker.

Of course it could take some time … that’s okay!  There is no pressure on you to stop smoking. You can smoke as little or as much as you want. By say “I’m a non-smoker” everyday with meaning you are nudging your subconscious mind to see yourself in a whole new way.

Because you know that everyday you’re going to say “I’m a non-smoker” that you may find you can delay or avoid a cigarette more easily. And when you want to smoke you still can. You are also creating an opportunity to think about HOW you might become that non-smoker.

There is no time limit for when you’ll quit. It might take a week or a month or 10 years. The time doesn’t matter. All that matters is that you KNOW you’re going to be saying those words everyday… no matter what.

Of course, I want to hear your results. The instructions are pretty simple but if you have any questions let me know.

Understanding and overcoming your Fear of flying

Fear of flightFlying is Voluntary

When I am approached by clients with a fear of flying, initially I simply tell them, “that’s simple, don’t fly…  Problem solved, what else can I do for you?  Oh and, don’t worry, except in the case of Con-Air, no one is ever forced on an airplane.”

Of course they quickly respond back that there are strong reasons which compel them to fly despite the discomfort.  Those reasons might include work, the desire to go on vacation or visit family in destinations not easily reached without air travel, etc.

Defeating F.E.A.R. (False Expectations Appearing Real) Be Free!

Without knowing it, by self-assessing the benefit that comes from flying to be more important than the fear, the person has already begun the process of re-gaining control.   Our little exchange has caused them to become aware of feelings that are keeping them from enjoying life, which includes flying comfortably.  They realize they want to fly because flying would provide a person important benefits.

By simply seeking help for the issue which makes them feel out of control, they have made a baby-step in the direction of being able to fly comfortably.  In essence they have said, “OK, I’ve been living with this F.E.A.R. (False Expectations Appearing Real) but I’m not taking it anymore, I want those benefits!”

How a Hypnotist Can Help

By consulting a Hypnotist for worries and concerns or dreads, such the fearful flying experience, you are selecting a professional who has spent much time studying how to help a person let go of such self-limiting beliefs. After using hypnosis, evaluating the risk involving flying correctly and appropriately becomes as easy as one would evaluate the risk of being driven in a car.

Without hypnosis the apprehensions remain even though the person would not have difficulty being driven in new stretch limousine by a highly trained professional driver.  A much more risky activity statistically, I might add.

How Your Mind Learns and Holds on to Patterns – A Demonstration

To show in a practical way, how our subconscious mind locks onto patterns and habits, let me ask you to clasp your hands together.  Notice the position of your thumbs.  You may put your left thumb over the right or vice-versa.  This would be an example of a habit which does not really matter as there is no right or wrong way.  You probably learned that way of doing it as a baby and relate to the happy feeling of that experience.  Switch your hands around and do it the other way and it “just feels wrong. ”   No amount of conscious effort on your part will change that “wrong feeling. ”

Regain Control Today, Fly Fearlessly!

Your Hypnotist knows how to help you make the change in your perceptions and behavior when a common activity such as Air Travel, “just feels wrong!”  Imagine a life where you are in control and you feel “comfortable”, in all situations.

How Does Hypnosis Help For Quitting Smoking?

People often ask me how hypnosis works to quit smoking.bigstock-man-hand-crushing-a-packet-of-16379711-600x300[1]

There are a lot of ways I could answer that including going into what hypnosis is and isn’t but the simplest answer I can give is to tell them it’s a trick.

Stopping smoking with hypnosis is a very interesting trick that you do with your mind.  The “trick” is to change specific beliefs and understandings about yourself and smoking.

The Belief “I am a smoker”

You never hear someone say “I’m a smoker trapped in a non-smoker’s body” because becoming a “smoker” only happens after the smoking habit is well in place.

When a person says “I’m a smoker and I want to quit” they are saying at the level of “Identity” (i.e. who they think they are) that they see themselves as a smoker.  This belief was created after they smoked tobacco for a while.  So in their mind the belief of who they are (a smoker) is the result of their smoking.

For them  becoming a non-smoker happens only after they have demonstrated non-smoking behaviors.  So, it’s only after enough time passes without smoking behaviors that they will agree they are non-smoker.

What most people don’t realize is that they can become a non-smoker by changing their belief first.

The Quick SolutionCrushing-cigarettes[1]

If a smoker simply changes their belief in themselves to “I’m a non-smoker” their behavior would change.  It would happen the instant their belief changed.  So all a person has to do to stop smoking is to sincerely believe they are non-smoker.

Easier said than done.

The Problem

Unfortunately, a simple solution isn’t always an easy solution.   The problem is that most people don’t know how to alter their beliefs.

I have met people who realize their problem lies solely on their belief  of  “I’m a smoker” and just decided to change it.  They instantly quit smoking,  no longer craved cigarettes and had no tobacco withdraws …. all without hypnosis.

Again, all they did is decide to become a non-smoker and believe without hesitation or doubt.

The “trick” requires that you focus so much on the new belief  “I’m a non-smoker” that it becomes true,  real and unquestionable.

Not all of us have that skill because we tend to quickly find exceptions to our any belief that challenge us.

How Hypnosis Helps

Hypnosis helps by creating a powerful and convincing experience that makes is easy to believe “I’m a non-smoker”.  This powerful experience is in the mind of the hypnosis subject but is profound enough for them to convince themselves that they no longer smoke or have desires to smoke.  The result is the hypnosis subject accepts without doubt that they are  real life non-smoker.

Hypnosis brings the hypnosis subject’s  focus to such a laser point so that the instructions given by the hypnotist become a very profound and powerful experience.  Just enough to convince the mind that it’s true.

How To Stop Smoking WITHOUT Hypnosis

Yes, I’m talking myself out of a lot of money but here goes!

If you want to quit smoking without hypnosis simply stop believing that you are a smoker. Replace it with the belief  “I’m a non-smoker.”

If you still  find that you are smoking then you have not made “I’m a non-smoker” believable enough.  Keep at it.


Yes, quitting smoking IS that simple.  But “simple” doesn’t mean “easy” for most people.  That is where hypnosis can be of real help.

If you find that you are still smoking, send us a  message to New Hampshire Hypnosis to set up your no-cost consultation.
