Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is the process of using hypnosis to interact with the subconscious mind in an open reflective process to create positive change in your life. The client must have a strong desire to change and be willing to submit to a deep state of relaxation.

Will I lose control?

You always have control, and you can always hear what’s going on. Hypnosis is nothing but a state of relaxed deep focus. It is a natural altered state of consciousness that can be deeper than some you already experience. Altered states of consciousness you experience today are falling asleep, meditating/praying, engaging fully in a movie, sometimes driving and “losing time”, focusing intently on a work or school project, etc.

What should I expect during a Hypnotherapy session?

You will experience a deep sense of relaxation, drifting in and out in a sleep like state, hearing my voice for guidance in visualization and positive change suggestions. Although you may not recall specifics, you are always in control.

How many Hypnotherapy sessions do I need?

This depends on the client and what it is they are trying to change. In addition, there is a singular focus in a session so if the client would like to change more than one thing, then naturally there would be more than one session.

Is there a guarantee and how do I know the Hypnotherapy worked?

Results are dependent upon the client. Their desire to change and engage in the process is key. The results can be subtle so focus on small changes such as a thought that will not seem to leave your mind or a change in your reactions or behaviors.

What is QiGong?

QiGong (pronounced chee-gong) is an ancient Chinese exercise and healing technique that involves meditation, controlled breathing, and movement exercises. This translates to Mastery of Your Energy and is sometimes seen as another version of Tai Chi.  This 20min video on the 8 Brocades will give you an idea .  There are hundreds of movements in the QiGong practice and certain movements can enhance your meditation practice as well as other management practices such as stress, pain, anxiety, and obsessive compulsive (OCD) thoughts/actions.
