I saw the Amazing Kreskin on television hypnotizing audience members when I was a very small child and I have been fascinated by hypnosis ever since. I began my studies in hypnosis in 1978 and have continually studied the many facets of hypnosis which include forensic hypnosis, hypnotic anesthesiology, stress management hypnosis, weight management hypnosis, smoking cessation hypnosis, insomnia hypnosis, memory hypnosis, pain management hypnosis, sports performance hypnosis, self-confidence hypnosis and on and on!
I have had the privilege of training with some of the most experienced hypnotists around the world and am considered a world class hypnotist and hypnotherapist myself. I also have a PhD in Religious Studies, 90 hours toward a PhD in Psychology and have trained extensively in NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming). You will be hypnotized by me and not just lulled to sleep! It is important that you enter the Theta state of hypnosis, because this is where the changes take place.
When you decide that you might like to try hypnosis, you must conduct an interview with the potential hypnotherapist and ask a lot of questions. You must feel completely comfortable with him or her because if you don’t, your subconscious mind will not allow you to reach the Theta state of mind which is paramount in creating any kind of change.
You can decide whether you want a session in my office or over Zoom. It is all up to you!
Hypnosis can help solve your problems faster than you can possibly imagine…
Most everything individuals know about hypnosis is based upon what they have learned from television!
Assuming the above statement is true, you may think your hypnotherapy session will start with the phrase, “You are getting sleeeeeeepy, sleeeeeeepy, sleeeeeeepy,” accompanied by a pocketwatch or crystal swinging in front of your eyes.
This is not how a person is hypnotized in a hypnotherapy session. In fact, forget everything you know about hypnosis (anything you learned on TV, anyway), because Hollywood style hypnotism is a thing of science fiction. It is dramatized to the extreme, and for obvious reasons (ratings).
Will you be under my complete control during your hypnotherapy session? Absolutely Not!
Let’s dispel an erroneous myth right now! The belief that you will be under the control of a hypnotist is simply not true. The truth of the matter is that if any one suggestion feels uncomfortable for you, it will be immediately rejected by your subconscious mind and you will immediately pop out of hypnosis.
As a matter of fact, the first 5-10 minutes of your session with me will be spent explaining exactly how authentic clinical hypnotherapy works, as well as answering any questions or concerns you may have because in order for you to become hypnotized, you must:
1. Want to be hypnotized (no one can hypnotize you against your will).
2. Have no fears or misconceptions about hypnosis and how it works!
Your subconscious mind is much like a computer and it must respond to what is allowed to go into it. If you like and want the suggestion that is given to you, then you will allow it to enter the subconscious mind.
You are everything the programming in your subconscious mind perceives you to be. If this part of your mind views you as overweight you become overweight. If it perceives you as a smoker, you smoke and so on. This applies to many areas of your life as well, such as your mental attitude, motivation, stress, fears, etc., the list goes on ad infinitum.
By using hypnosis you are able to bypass the critical factor of your conscious mind (the gatekeeper) and access your subconscious mind to to rewrite the script that is keeping you stuck to allow yourself to be whatever you wish to be.
Are you ready to change your life in ways you never thought possible? Remember you must feel completely comfortable with the hypnotherapist. Also, if anyone tries to push you into having a session it will not work. You must want to have a session and like the hypnotherapist you will be working with.
A hypnotherapy session with me will be approximately 1 1/2 – 2 hours long because I need to use what I call discovery to get to the core of your issue. Then once that is discovered you will be hypnotized to create new neuro-chemistry which will allow you to create change.
You can expect to pay anywhere from $300 – $600 for a session from a qualified hypnotherapist. Anything less than that should give you an indication that the hypnotherapist doesn’t feel comfortable with their skill level or they are a novice in the area of hypnosis.
My in-office sessions are $350 which includes a private 1 1/2 – 2 hour session and a hypnotic power programming MP3 download that you play for 21 days following your session. With the exception of my “Kick Butt” smoking cessation session which is $597 for a private session.
My hypnotic sessions via Zoom are also $350 which includes a private 1 1/2 – 2 hour session and a hypnotic power programing MP3 download that you will play for 21 days following your session. And again my “Kick Butt” smoking cessation is $597 via Zoom. My “KIck Butt” hypnotherapy session is more expensive because when you add in the high cost of insurance, health costs and cost of a carton, the total comes to about $40 a pack.
The reason you receive a hypnotic audio power program is to continue to strengthen the new neuro-pathways that have been created during your session.
Please feel free to reach out to me with your questions and to find out if a hypnotherapy session is right for you!
