Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions? See the list below to find answers to commonly asked questions regarding hypnosis and life coaching. If you don't see what you need below, feel free to send your question(s) through the contact portal.

Does Hypnotherapy actually work?

Yes, Hypnotherapy does actually work. Hypnotherapy sessions help you to let go of the blocks, triggers, habits or fears anchored in the subconscious mind that may be inhibiting you in one way or another, and replaces them with new positive habits, beliefs or automatic behaviors that you want to have.

How will each session be structured?

Each session begins with a check-in conversation and will continue with either hypnosis or a full coaching session. Each session will be tailored based on the needs or requests of the client.

Do you accept Insurance?

Insurance is not currently accepted for Hypnotherapy and Life Coaching. You may check to see if our services are eligible to be covered by your FSA or HSA account.

Do you offer in-person or online sessions?

I offer both in-person and online sessions, although in-person is highly encouraged for local clients seeking hypnotherapy.

Can everyone be hypnotized?

Hypnosis is a completely safe and natural state, and we all experience some form of hypnosis every day of our lives (i.e. daydreaming or driving on "autopilot"). Although some clients experience a lighter state of hypnosis than others, initially they find that they will go deeper into hypnosis with each subsequent session, as they become more comfortable with the process.

What is the difference between a Life Coach and traditional Counselor or Therapist?

While traditional Counseling and Therapy are both great modes of healing, they are focused on unraveling past experiences alone. Life Coaching is focused on moving on from one's past experiences and improving the present and future quality of life.

Will I lose control of myself while in hypnosis?

Allowing yourself to fall into a suggestible, hypnotic state is purely up to you. If you are not willing to or comfortable being hypnotized, you will not fall into hypnosis.

How many sessions of Hypnotherapy will I need?

The number of sessions needed will depend on the person, the concern and its severity, and therefore will vary case by case.

Here is some context, based on the research:

According to a survey of psychological literature by psychologist Alfred A. Barrios, Ph.D. published in the American Health Magazine, the following recovery rates were revealed:

 

“Psychoanalysis: 38% recovery after 600 sessions

 

Behavior Therapy: 72% recovery after 22 sessions

 

Hypnotherapy: 93% recovery after 6 sessions”
