About Hypnotherapy

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis is a state in which you have heightened focus and concentration, and greater-than normal openness to suggestion. Hypnotherapy is a modality that makes use of hypnosis to help clients achieve desired goals such as coping better with pain and anxiety, ending self-sabotage, quitting smoking, and more.  When you're under hypnosis, you usually feel calm and relaxed, but contrary to popular myth, you don’t lose control over your behavior.

Hypnotherapy has been shown to be effective with:

  • Behavior change. Overeating, insomnia, bed-wetting, smoking and self-sabotage all have been shown to respond well to Hypnotherapy.

  • Mental health conditions. Hypnosis has been shown to be effective in treating symptoms of flashbacks, panic attacks, anxiety, phobias and post-traumatic stress.

  • Pain control. Hypnotherapy may help relieve pain from childbirth, irritable bowel syndrome, TMJ, burns, headaches, fibromyalgia, dental procedures, and cancer.  

  • Chemotherapy or Radiation Treatment side-effects.

Real Help For Chronic Anxiety

Take Your Life Back.

This 5 Session Package includes:

  1. A thorough intake session that will allow us to customize the work to meet your unique needs, along with some quick and effective stress-busting techniques you can immediately take home with you

  2. A session where I show you how to create affirmations that really work, show you how to turn on and off a pleasurable state of deep relaxation as you choose, giving you a new set point that will allow you to create a place of safety from which to do the deeper work that we’ll do in the next sessions, and a recording for you to use regularly to help reinforce your chosen affirmations while deepening your capacity to fully relax. 

  3. Two Hypnotherapy sessions to address any root cause of anxiety, panic attacks and phobias.  

  4. One followup session to address any potential remaining issues while using what you’ve learned to create more of what you want to experience in your life going forward.

All sessions are scheduled for one hour each, but an allowance of up to 30 minutes is built in to my schedule so if we need extra time we’ll have it (at no extra cost to you). If additional sessions are needed to address the root cause, they can be added on at a rate of $100 per additional session ($45 off the regular rate).

*I am not advocating stopping anxiety medication if it’s helping you; but Hypnotherapy can be helpful for many who feel that they’d be better off not taking medication, and would like other effective strategies for dealing with panic attacks, anxiety and phobias.  If you're not sure, please consult your physician.

 

Quit Smoking

For Good.

If you want to stop smoking,
this Quit Smoking package can help you do it.

  • Get support to deal with cravings

  • change your sense of identity to one of a non-smoker

  • Create a strong unconscious aversion to cigarettes,

  • And find new ways of dealing with the stresses that may have caused you to smoke in the past. 

This is a very thorough protocol and to effect change I usually recommend a 2 hour initial session and then a week later, a 60 minute follow up session. If needed, additional sessions are available at no extra charge (and it's very possible that you'll be smoke free with just the first two sessions).


There's nothing more self-loving you can do right now than to let go of habits that are destructive to you and those around you.  If you feel ready to quit and would like some focused and powerful support, hit "Purchase Now" below. If you still have questions feel free to contact me.


Cost: $242 for an initial 2 hour session and a one hour followup session, plus additional smoking cessation sessions as needed at no extra charge.

Clinical Research

 

A study compared smoking cessation rates between groups that used 1. hypnotherapy (a 90-minute session), 2. hypnotherapy with nicotine replacement, and 3. nicotine replacement only. Analysis of the results showed that the groups using hypnotherapy were over three times more likely to abstain after 6 months than the group using nicotine replacement.

Frequently Asked Questions About Hypnotherapy

Can you make me quack like a duck?

Only if you want to quack like a duck.
Hypnotherapy is fantastic support for helping you do what you want to do, but operates purely on consent, so I'm unable (and unwilling) to override your intention.

Is Hypnotherapy only for weak minded people?

It’s the power of the client’s mind that makes the modality work, as well as the willingness to experience oneself in a different way. This implies flexibility rather than weakness, and the ability to learn something beneficial that can take one beyond current challenges into another way of being.

What are some common misconceptions about Hypnotherapy?

Misconceptions abound; some of the most common ones are that you’ll go unconscious; that you lose control of your will or be caused to reveal something about yourself that you wouldn’t want anyone to know, and that you go to sleep. 

None of these are true; clients retain their ability to choose according to their ethics and intentions, and are very much awake — in fact, studies show that neurological activity seems to increase. As a result of a deep encounter with their inner mind, many clients experience a deeper awareness of their authentic desires and underlying motivations, which gives them great edge  when going about making positive changes in their lives.

Do you do age regression, past life therapy and such?

I’m unsure of the value of having clients re-live the first instance of a traumatic experience; it’s been proven that false memories can be created by an unwitting comment made by a hypnotherapist while a client is in a therapeutic trance state. Instead, it’s my priority to ask your unconscious mind to help you have the experiences you need to be able to reach whatever objective is most important to you.

What is the likelihood that what I experienced in past life regression work actually happened?

It’s been my experience that the unconscious mind is incredibly resourceful and isn’t restricted to one particular pathway to finding its coherence, and it’s not within the scope of what I do to try to prove or disprove the validity of someone’s past life experience. 


And, I have seen situations where someone became sidetracked by a very intense past life regression experience, and this is different from what I want for my clients — which is to help them become more deeply fascinated with their current life and what they can do to help themselves become more fully alive, right here and now.


Instead, I like to take whatever the inner mind brings to you as a potent and rich metaphorical gift that has exactly what’s needed to help you in the situation you’re currently in.  

What are your fees?

A single 90 minute session is $145. Package discounts are available.
If you are feeling strongly that this work is for you, but the cost feels out of reach, contact me to discuss mutually beneficial ways to get both our needs met.
