Frequently asked questions
How does hypnosis work?
How long would my session be?
A session is typically 90 minutes in length. I suggest that you allow a 2-hour window for our time together, as occasionally, a session can run over.
How will I feel in hypnosis?
When you are in the hypnotic state, you feel safe and profoundly relaxed. As moments of your life are examined, you feel safe to experience your emotions.
Can anyone be hypnotised?
Hypnosis is not advised for individuals with epilepsy, schizophrenia, etc. Alcohol and certain drugs will impact the efficacy of the session; other impediments might have to do with repressed memories.
Will I loose my own power?
No one can make you behave in any manner you don’t want to, or make you believe something you know is false. It is a misconception that you are ‘under the complete control’ of a hypnotist. You continue to be you, even when you choose hypnosis to modify your behaviour and/or beliefs.
Will I remember my session and thoughts?
Yes. The session will not alter your memory of events. However, you may find that your new perspective/understanding of the issue being addressed may change how you reflect on those events.
Will I have to relive my past?
You will not relive any moment of your past. I want you to approach revisiting scenes in your life the same way you re-watch a movie or TV show you’ve seen a couple of times, and you find yourself noticing things you’ve never seen before.
What happens if I find it too much?
Is my treatment permanent?
The hypnosis I practice is geared toward lasting change. Permanence is up to each client. If you listen to your recording daily for at least a month, you can anticipate a noticeable and/or permanent shift in the issue you chose to address. If you don’t listen daily, your change may take longer, or may not be as lasting as you’d like. Additionally, if you never listen to your recording, you may revert to old patterns.
Is it ok to listen to my recording more than once a day?
Yes. Make sure that you are in a safe, quiet place where you won’t be interrupted for approximately 15-20 minutes (the length of your recording plus a few minutes to become fully aware at the end of the listening).
What aftercare to you offer after my session?
After your session, I am available 24/7 on text or email to see how you're doing. You may also contact me should any questions or concerns arise. I will also be contactiong you after 28 days to schedule a 30 minute review.
