“WHAT’S IT LIKE TO BE HYPNOTIZED?”

By |November 15th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|

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 [...]

HOW MINDFULNESS HELPS

By |November 15th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|

Hypnosis has the ability to change deep unconscious habits that seem outside of your conscious control. But there is a way to bring many habits under our control without resorting to fatigue producing “will power”. The process is called Mindfulness. I often encourage my hypnosis clients to practice a simple exercise in mindfulness. Mindfulness does not mean sitting cross-legged in meditating for hours. Instead, it is the very simple and intentional Act of paying attention. Putting all of your attention to what you are doing without judgement and without emotion. Mindfulness is the act of observing what you are experiencing [...]

HEROIN, METHAMPHETAMINE AND HYPNOSIS

By |November 15th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|

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 [...]

CONFESSION: I WAS A HYPNOTIST WHO SMOKED CIGARETTES

By |November 15th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|

“Giving up smoking is easy…I’ve done it hundreds of times.” ~Mark Twain It’s true. For a majority of my career as a hypnotist, while I was helping people quit smoking, I also smoked. I know that makes me seem like a hypocrite and I would agree. I started smoking a few years before I started my career in hypnosis. Smoking made be feel independent and rebellious. I also knew no good would come of smoking but, like every smoker, I suppressed that thought with a double dose of justification and denial. Also like many smokers, I quit smoking many times. [...]

HOW MUCH IS HYPNOSIS WORTH?

By |November 15th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|

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. [...]

THE HYPNOTIC POWER OF GRATITUDE

By |November 15th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|

I was recently working with a client for drug addiction. Anyone who recognizes they’re stuck in a problem starts working to get out of it. As you might guess, he spent much of his time and mental energy working to avoid using drugs and alcohol. This avoidance became a huge preoccupation. Of course doing this can work but such vigilance can make an exhausting amount of stress. A turning point happened in our work when he realized that it is easier and more enjoyable to focus on the things that he appreciates in life as opposed to trying to avoid [...]

COMMON SENSE AND HYPNOSIS

By |November 15th, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|

I love that quote. Everyone I work with wants to do common sense things that should be easy to do. They want to stop smoking, eat right, control anxiety, focus on important areas of life and avoid distractions. All of these things are just common sense. It’s common sense to not smoke tobacco. It’s common sense to eat healthy foods. It’s common sense to get physical activity. It’s common sense that speaking to groups of people should be easy. These things should be easy … but they are not. If gaining this level of control were easy people wouldn’t [...]
