Questions and answers

How does hypnosis feel?

Since hypnosis is a natural state of mind, clients are often surprised that they hear every word. You may not "feel" any different than when relaxing in your favorite easy chair with a good book . One may feel quite mellow, and may feel light (or weightless), or very heavy as if sinking into the chair. It is entirely possible for a client to believe that he or she was not hypnotized, so it is very important to realize that IMAGINATION is the language of the subconscious. Many successes have taken place with clients who never “felt” hypnotized in any of their visits.

What makes hypnotherapy different than traditional therapy?

Hypnosis and psychology are two totally different methodologies. The role of the hypnotherapist is to help the client to achieve stated goals safely and effectively through the use of carefully chosen hypnotherapy suggestions and techniques. When it comes to changing habits or behaviors regulated by the subconscious, hypnotherapy shines. Hypnosis is not a solution for all life's problems.

Traditional therapy deals with issues at a cognitive level; and many of life's problems require just that. When someone has to make difficult decisions, competent professional help is absolutely essential! For example, hypnotherapy is not a substitute for marriage counseling.

If your problem is due to the subconscious refusing to allow you to accomplish what you consciously wish, you may wish to consider hypnotherapy. It will help your subconscious mind to accept the conscious decisions you choose.

It's also important to realize that a competent hypnotherapist recognizes that he or she is NOT licensed to diagnose

How long will it take before

I notice a change? 

The answer depends on the combination of several factors: your desired goal, the strength of your desire to change, and the degree of any subconscious resistance to change. In only one session, most clients become more relaxed than before. That in itself can be a big change for many clients! If you can agree that the ability to intentionally relax yourself is an important first step towards improving your health and mental focus, then one session may be sufficient to help you learn how to do that…but what about overcoming undesired habits, overcoming fears, or achieving other important personal or professional goals?

some people respond to hypnosis very well, and are able to achieve their goals in less time than other clients. If any hypnotist promises a one-session “quick fix” to your problem, there is a good possibility that any success will be temporary.
