What Can Hypnosis Help Me With?
What will happen in the first session?
After speaking with you about what you would like to accomplish in hypnotherapy, I will help you to achieve a very calm, comfortable state which will enable you to be more receptive to your goals.
Will a hypnotist be able to control your mind?
In fact, no one can control your mind. You will never do anything against your morals, ethics or values. Your hypnotist will give you suggestions based on your cognitive interview. Your subconscious will automatically reject unwanted suggestions and accept suggestions you want.
Will I be asleep?
Hypnosis is not a sleep state, it is a very deep state of relaxation.
How will it feel to be hypnotized?
You will feel very relaxed, calm and peaceful. Most people report having a heightened sense of awareness, concentration and focus and can even hear more acutely during a session.
What if I am too far away from your office?
Phone sessions are available if you are too far away or cannot make a scheduled visit.
Can hypnosis make me tell secrets?
Not at all. You will not divulge any information that you would not ordinarily divulge. You always have a choice, and your brain did not stop functioning or reasoning. However, you may find that you discover some inner truths about yourself, or your situation, or some self-sabotage, that you did not know about consciously. What this means is that your subconscious mind may have some inner programming going on that you do not know about that causes you to keep making the same mistakes, get sick, get angry, have rotten luck, or ignore important clues about your success or failure. The really good news is that when you uncover these inner truths that have been kept secret from you by your subconscious mind, your mind can no longer play that game. When the unconscious strategy is revealed, the gig is up. Your inner mind must now do it differently. The program only worked when it was in stealth mode.
Can Hypnosis make me do something against my will?
Absolutely not. This is probably the biggest myth of all. Stage hypnotists seem to make people do strange things while hypnotized, but the truth is that these people are doing these things because they have a desire to be outrageous. If the stage hypnotists choose their subjects carefully they will have willing participants. You will never do anything, or accept any suggestion that violates your morals or values.

Laws of Suggestibility
  • Reverse Action
    The most common law, it’s sometimes referred to as Reverse Psychology. A person will respond to the stronger part of a suggestion if the alternative presented is considerably weaker.
  • Repetition
    It is represented by the fact that the more we do something, the better we become at it. By repeating suggestions in hypnosis, the stronger the suggestive idea becomes.
  • Dominance
    The use of authority or that of being an authority figure to “command” the client to accept a suggestion. Capitalizing on one’s position as “therapist” or by using an authoritative tone are two approaches to apply the Law of Dominance.
  • Delayed Action
    When a suggestion is inferred, the individual will react to it whenever a jogging condition or situation that has been used in the original suggestive idea presents itself.
  • Association
    Whenever we repeatedly respond to a particular stimulus in the presence of another, we will soon begin to associate one with the other. Whenever either stimulus is present, the other is recalled. The post suggestion to re-hypnosis works under this law.
