About Hypnosis

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of mind that allows the subconscious mind to be receptive to new ways of responding. Hypnotism is the practice of deliberately leading a person into hypnosis for the purpose of making changes – for example, to habits, attitudes, or other behavior.

 Why engage the subconscious in making changes?

The conscious part of your mind can only hold onto a small number of ideas or memories at one time. The subconscious, on the other hand, isn’t limited by attention, time, or even whether you’re awake. It is far more powerful.

Let’s think about the different roles of the conscious and subconscious. Anything we are intentionally focusing on is in our conscious awareness. Everything else is in our subconscious. Subconscious simply means below awareness.

While you are reading this sentence, the meaning is in your conscious mind. Think of it as the “foreground.” The shape and order of each letter and how they combine to form words – those details operate in the “background,” or the subconscious.

The subconscious controls reflexes, habits, and billions of bits of data, like your birth date, your phone number, and other information that can be kept in the “background” until it’s needed in the “foreground.” Imagine how much more capacity it has to manage change!

Will I have to talk about my past or relive issues from my childhood?

No. Hypnosis is not counseling or therapy. However, if something from your past is currently getting in your way, hypnosis offers ways to release the old emotional charge.

Can anyone be hypnotized?

In my experience, anyone who wants to be hypnotized can be. During your first session, we will do some receptivity exercises to discover which methods will work best for you.


What does it cost?

It depends on the kind of work you want to do.

I offer some pure relaxation and stress-release packages, which range from $75-150. These services are “massage for the mind.” They provide quick and easy short-term solutions: get a better night’s sleep, re-energize, escape and shield from the daily stress.

As simple as they are, they can begin a process of profound and lasting change.

Changing habits, behaviors, and mindset requires a different approach. If you want to manage pain or eliminate fears; stop smoking, drinking, worrying, pulling hair, biting nails, eating when not hungry, lying awake worrying about tomorrow, etc., then I’ll need to get more information from you. Once I know your situation and history, I’ll be able to make recommendations about how to proceed.

We’ll discuss all that once I know what you want to work on. Packages range from $497 to $1359.
