Frequently Asked Questions

Is Hypnosis Safe?

Absolutely, Hypnosis is a non-invasive therapy where you are in full control. There are no side effects. There are many myths surrounding hypnosis, including the belief that it can be used to reveal private information or cause you to act against your will. These scenarios, often portrayed in books or movies, are fictional and intended merely for entertainment purposes. It is more like a vivid daydream, where you remain in control of your morals, ethics, and privacy. Most people don’t realize they are in a state of hypnosis or trance-like state, on a daily basis while reading a book, watching a movie, daydreaming, and even while driving. When our attention is focused on these activities, we tune out our surroundings. If a family member is talking while you are watching a movie, you are most likely not going to remember a word they say. But if they yell something like “I’m going to steal your car”, it will break your focus, and you’re not going to allow that to happen.

How long does a session last & How much does it cost?

A typical session can last up to 3 hours. This includes time spent discussing specific issues and questions before the session begins.

How can I prepare for my session?

Please see my page on Preparing for your Session. It is always best to approach your session with an open mind and let go of any expectations. Like anything, if you remove any expectations you have of an upcoming experience you may be pleasantly surprised with the results. Keep in mind, your session will be unique to you and may be very different from someone else’s session you have watched online.

I had a session with another hypnotist and didn't feel that I was under. How will a session feel with you?

It is important to understand that Hypnosis is Not sleep. During a hypnosis session you are fully conscious and aware of your surroundings. If you didn’t feel like you were hypnotized before, it may be because you had expectations that hypnosis feels like sleep or the hypnotist did not explain what hypnosis feels like. Most people are completely aware of what is happening and remember all or most of their session. It can be like waking up from a dream and remembering it vividly but the memory fades away as the day goes on. For some, it may feel like you were asleep and are unaware of what was said, but your subconscious mind or Higher Self will still be having a conversation with me. It is highly recommended to review the recording of your session.

Will I lose control of what I say or do during a hypnosis session?

You will never act against your best interests or values. If your conscious mind is concerned, at worst you would not be able to go into the relaxed altered state to begin or may interrupt the session already in progress. It is important to note that you will have the opportunity during the interview process to get to know me and address any concerns you may have. A high level of trust and respect is a vital part of the hypnosis process.

Can I record the Session?

No, your session will be recorded and a copy will be provided for you. The induction is not recorded or shared.

What is the Higher Self?

Some refer to it as your over soul. It is the all-knowing part of you and a powerful resource of wisdom and intelligence, which can bring real meaning, balance, and purpose to your life. It knows everything there is to know about you and the life you are living. The Higher self will only choose to share information that is appropriate for you at this stage of your life, driven only to benefit you. If it is appropriate, this aspect of you is also able to provide physical and emotional healing, which may take place instantly or in the weeks or months to follow.

Will it make a difference if I don't believe in Past Lives & Reincarnation?

No. The Higher Self is not concerned with beliefs. Whatever your questions may be, the inherent focus of your Higher Self is to help you to reach a state of balance, fulfillment, understanding and happiness. It is the source of all answers, and will help you in ways that may surprise you.

Can I bring a friend or family member with me during the session?

Nobody is permitted to be present during the session. Also, nobody is permitted to be in the room with you or listening to your session in person or through any type of listening device as it is not to your benefit and can influence your focus. You will have the chance to share the recording with anyone you wish after the session is over.

What is the difference between QHHT & Introspective Hypnosis?

Introspective hypnosis is a way of accessing the subconscious to eliminate pain, remember forgotten events, and reprogram behaviors. It is a flexible and adaptive technique that is based on finding the source of psychosomatic symptoms which may originate in this life or a past life. I do not practice QHHT, which is a method developed and licensed by Dolores Cannon.
