Does hypnosis really work?

Absolutely. Hypnosis has been effectively used for centuries, but only in the past several decades has it won favor in the “mainstream” for problem solving and elimination, pain management, relaxation, performance success, general well-being, and many, many other issues.

How long does it take to work?

Improvement is generally immediate after the first session. Many issues are fully resolved in one session; some take multiple sessions, depending on the depth of the issue and other factors.

Is hypnosis safe?

Yes. When facilitated by a certified hypnotherapist, hypnosis is very safe. You will be treated with the highest respect and professionalism at all times. Nothing will be asked of you that your ethics won’t allow. Interestingly, neither would your subconscious allow you to act in a way that violates your own ethics!

Will I remember what happened?

In all likelihood, yes. As they enter the state of hypnosis, most people experience deep relaxation that resembles the period of time just before sleep. During the session you will probably be aware of what is being said and how you are responding, both verbally and emotionally. However, because hypnosis relaxes you deeply, you may not remember all details, simply the ones that feel the most important to you.

Can sessions be done remotely, or do they need to be in-person? Can the session be done at my house?

Sessions can be done either remotely or in person. If remote, all that is required is a quiet, private setting; a comfortable chair or bed to relax fully into; and a technology setup that allows for a close camera view with good sound. Some people prefer to travel to the hypnotherapy studio, if they do not have a setting that provides these essentials. I only perform sessions in person at my studio or remotely via Zoom.

Why does it cost so much?

A lot of effort goes into making your session successful, from personalizing materials to ensuring the environment is supportive to the work, plus overall administrative costs. Every session is unique to you and your desired outcome, and I take that very seriously in my preparation. To help save money, a four-session package is offered.
