questions & answers

What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is the state of mind that allows us access to the subconscious mind and because of that, is highly suggestible. It is this suggestibility that allows for the creation of new patterns, programs, and beliefs about oneself and life in general.
While in Hypnosis, the body is very relaxed, and the mind is in a heightened st
ate of awareness and focus, a trance like state.

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is the use of Hypnosis for self-improvement, self-healing, and personal development.

What are the benefits of Hypnotherapy?
Rapid change through an accelerated shift in perception. For example, if something would normally take you years to work through, by accessing the subconscious mind through hypnotherapy we can achieve results in as little as a few sessions. Sometimes even just one.

Can everyone be hypnotized?
Technically yes! In fact, most people go in and out of hypnosis on a daily basis because hypnosis is a natural state. For example, when you are watching the news, you are in hypnosis. In hypnotherapy, we make use of the hypnosis state for therapeutic purposes. It’s important to remember that there are different depths to hypnosis. Not everyone can go down to a deep state during the first session, but with subsequent sessions, most will. The extremely left brained people and the extremely passive aggressive people will take longer to be hypnotized.

Is there anything I should or should not do prior to my session?
Please no uppers! Caffeine intake should be limited. A good rule of thumb is no caffeine 2 hours prior to your appointment.
No Adderall or Modafinil or any other nootropic designed to keep you awake within 6 hours of the appointment.

Are there any interactions with medications?
Individuals on benzodiazepines (Xanax, Clonopin, Valium, or Ativan) are advised against Past Life Regression and trauma release sessions because this group of drugs acts as memory-repressants and inhibits the effective application of certain hypnotic techniques. Also keep in mind if you are on pain killers, you may not experience the full “feeling” of being under hypnosis because of the numbing effect of the drug. You will still be in hypnosis but may not feel it.

Who should NOT do hypnosis?
Anyone diagnosed with a serious mental illness will need to consult with and receive approval from their doctor before undergoing a hypnotherapy session. Examples include but are not limited to: bipolar disorder, dissociative and personality disorders, schizophrenia, and suicidal ideation.

How many sessions will I need?
This depends entirely on what it is you wish to accomplish. If you’ve been dealing with something for years, chances are one session is not going to change your entire life. We can do a lot in one session, but not everything. The answer to this question is entirely dependent upon each individual.

Is a hypnotherapist a licensed doctor?
No. We cannot treat nor diagnose.

Can Hypnosis produce immediate results?
Yes! But this depends entirely upon each individual and how open and ready they are to embrace that change.

What will it feel like?
Although, most will feel as if their body is extremely relaxed, but their mind is in a trance like state of heightened awareness, this may vary from person to person.

Will I remember everything?
You will most likely remember everything.

Can I record my session?

Do you record sessions?

No. I do not record live nor zoom sessions.

What is the difference between Hypnotherapy and brainwashing?
With Hypnotherapy, no one has control over your mind. You could open your eyes and exit at any given moment. You are aware of what is happening at all times and can refuse any suggestion. Brain washing is a whole other topic and involves subversive programming that you are usually unaware of. 

How to prepare for a zoom session?

Please ensure that you are in a quiet dimly lit room where you will not be disturbed, with devices on “do not disturb.” You will need to have a place where you can recline back with your feet up and your head back and supported. A recliner or laying down on a couch or bed is preferable. The device you are using for zoom will need to be propped up somewhere near you but not on you. Headphones are preferable unless you would like to record the session. In that case, please
have another device ready and use speaker phone for the zoom session instead of headphones.
