How does the program work?
The hypnosis program is set up for at least three sessions. A great deal can be accomplished in the first session giving you the solution you want. Additional sessions are there to enhance your self-esteem, and self confidence as well as to reinforce the benefits you’ve already received. Additional session can be added at no extra cost to the program.
What does hypnosis feel like?
Hypnosis is a very pleasant state of focus. Some people have compared it to getting deeply involved while reading a book or watching a movie. Keep in mind people change not because of information but because they have a meaningful experience. Hypnosis is designed to create a positive and dramatic experience within the your mind that makes change easy.
Will I be asleep?
No. From the outside you may look very still and calm but you will be fully aware of what the hypnotist is telling you. That is the only way you will be able to follow the hypnotists instructions.
Will I bark like a dog or cluck like a chicken?
No. That is a reference to the entertainment style of stage hypnosis. Stage hypnosis is fun to watch but it is NOT what happens here. You have using hypnosis to achieve a result that it’s important to you. That is our focus.
Will I lose control?
No. You will gain a level of control that most people can’t imagine. To do that you must be able and willing to follow the hypnotists instructions. That is why people of a better than average intelligence make the best hypnosis subjects.
My friend tried hypnosis to quit smoking and it didn’t work.
Nearly 100% of the people who come in craving a cigarette do not and cannot want a cigarette by the end of the first session. That result is usually permanent. What most often happens is they are triggered by a stressful event and decide to respond by returning to the old habit of smoking. Doing that breaks the hypnosis process. When people say “It didn’t work” they usually mean “Hypnosis worked great until I had that one cigarette”. For that reason ANYONE who starts smoking again can return for additional sessions AT NO COST. Our goal is to help you stop smoking for good!
How is hypnotherapy different than affirmations?
Affirmations are repeated phrases that help you conscious focus on an important goal or outcome. They can have a very positive effect. Hypnosis goes deeper that the conscious mind. Hypnosis takes those positive outcomes and links them to powerful subconscious emotions and motivations. After a hypnosis session you will FEEL a change that is both positive and automatic.
Isn’t Hypnosis dangerous?
No. There is no inherent danger in hypnosis if you are working with a skilled and trusted hypnotist.
