What is Hypnotism & how does it work?

​Hypnotism is a technique that accesses and works through the processes of the subconscious mind to facilitate habit transformation. In the hypnotist's model, the mind is made up of two parts, the conscious (critical/analytical thought) and the larger subconscious (habitual/emotional/autonomic processes).  Hypnotism is a process that bypasses or reduces the conscious mind processes while bringing the subconscious mind's processes closer to the level of awareness and interaction. 

The hypnotic trance state is a state of deeply focused relaxation. While in the hypnotic trance state outdated behaviors/habits and subconscious beliefs can be transformed through suggestion and inner healing processes.  This is done with the use of imagery, emotion, memory, creativity, intuition, and energy work.  

Focused relaxation and visualization can also affect the physical functioning of the body in many positive ways. Through a series of hypnosis sessions and the initiation of self-hypnosis (or meditation) practice, clients are empowered to create positive and lasting personal transformation. 

Will I be able to be hypnotized?

Most people are able to be hypnotized, though the depth will vary.  All hypnosis is essentially self hypnosis and an experience the individual gives permission to occur.  This permission is supported when there is a sense of trust and rapport with the hypnotist.  

My goal is for you to feel comfortable and safe with me and the process, thereby easing any possible hypnotic resistance.

What does it feel like to be hypnotized?

In hypnosis you may feel like you do just before you wake up fully and are remembering a dream. Sometimes while listening to music, watching television or driving we become deeply absorbed in our mind and may lose track of where we are - hypnosis can feel like that.  It is typically a very relaxing experience.

How many sessions will it take? 

I recommend a minimum commitment of four sessions to begin with for most issues.  Scheduling is dependent on your needs and availability. 

Due to the personal nature of this work, the number of sessions is dependent on your needs. Clients that have positive results may choose to do additional sessions for deeper reinforcement, to continue healing processes or just for maintenance 'tune ups'.

What is Self-Hypnosis?

In the process of letting go of old habits and creating new ones, self-hypnosis is an activity that can help support you between sessions and after sessions are completed.  Self-hypnosis can be as simple as remembering to breathe, consciously releasing tension or repeating a positive reminder to yourself.  

Self-hypnosis is similar to meditation which I encourage as well to reinforce presence of mind.  All hypnosis clients receive my Meditation and Self-Hypnosis audio recordings to use on their own


When I do hypnotic healing work with someone for the first time it is typically a four session 'package'.  This format gives you the opportunity to become more familiar with the experience of hypnosis while bringing the healing benefits into your daily life.  Hypnosis is not a 'magic spell' to instantly fix you and your life, but an opportunity to become more aware of and centered in your 'finer' self.  Time is inherent in this gentle and respectful process of healing and transformation.  

Below is a description of how the sessions are structured: 

Getting to Know You

Duration: 60 minutes

During this session we focus in on what you are looking to gain through your hypnosis experience, what is motivating you at this time, and overall look at the struggles & what is working well in your life. Getting to know the the whole person, not just your 'problem', is a valuable step towards moving forward and creating a comfortable healing environment.  This session also gives you a chance to get to know me and feel comfortable in my office.

Even though I don't do 'official' hypnosis with you at this session most people leave feeling more empowered and ready to move forward.

After this session, you will receive my Simple Quieting Meditation audio recording to listen to in preparation for your hypnosis sessions and for continued healthy practice. 


​Hypnosis Begins 

Duration: 90 minutes

During this session you are introduced to the hypnotic experience. There is a relaxing, calm and supportive atmosphere as I guide you through the induction and deepening into the hypnotic state.  A sense of an inner sanctuary or safeness is established and from there we explore getting in touch with the parts of yourself ready to be the 'finer you'. 

The session is interactive which means you are able to respond while in hypnosis and play an active part in the experience.  After this session, you will receive a self-hypnosis audio file to listen to in between the sessions and beyond.  Practicing self-hypnosis independently reinforces what we have done in the office session and builds your skills and confidence in maintaining positive and healthy transformation.


Positive Reinforcing 

Duration:  90 minutes

This session begins with a short update to see how you are doing with your self-hypnosis practice and the effect of the healing work from prior sessions.  Hypnosis focuses on reinforcing what is going well through positive suggestion, affirmation and visualization. 

Continued struggles and/or resistance to your intended habit transformation and healing are explored.  Gentle healing processes are used to release or reframe blocked energies or beliefs.


Positive Reinforcing Continued

Duration: 60 minutes

This session begins with a short update to see how you are doing.  Hypnosis continues to focus on reinforcing healthy transformation with positive suggestion, affirmation and visualization. 

​When needed, we go deeper with the hypnosis to move through areas of resistance and/or re-framing expectation.
