Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a safe and natural trance state that we enter into spontaneously several times a day. When driving a familiar route you may go into “highway hypnosis”, and arrive in your destination without remembering the trip. When reading or watching an absorbing movie, the time may seem to fly by without realizing it. When you daydream, or are creating something, you can be in a trance state. It gives access to the part of our brain where our memories, emotions, intuition, creativity, and imagination reside.

What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the process of using hypnotic trance for beneficial purposes such as stress/anxiety reduction, habit control, building confidence, relief of symptoms/pain, preparing for childbirth, or surgery, and healing faster.

Is it safe?
As a trained hypnotherapist, I can put you in trance and bring you out easily and safely. You will not be asleep, in fact you will be able to hear and remember everything I say. You will not do or say anything that you would not want to. In hypnosis the conscious mind is relaxed, so the subconscious mind can be fully alert and receptive. To make any permanent, lasting changes, it is necessary to engage the subconscious mind, where memories, traumas, sources of habitual beliefs and habits were first formed. For instance, to permanently lose weight, it helps to uncover the underlying emotional reasons for overeating in the first place. Otherwise, dieting alone may fail, if we fall back onto old patterns of behavior, as soon as the diet is finished.

Can I be Hypnotized?
Although some people go into trance more easily than others, almost everyone can be hypnotized. Since you may remember everything that goes on during a session, you may come away feeling that you were not hypnotized. Yet, even in a light trance, profound changes can occur.

How long is a session and how many will it take?
A session will last between 60 and 90 minutes. The number of sessions will depend on what issues you wish to work on, how long standing they are and complexity of what we discover has brought them about. Sometimes, we can get to the major causes and clear up an issue in one or two sessions. For weight loss, smoking cessation, or other long standing addictions I recommend a minimum of 4-8 sessions. I offer a free of charge, or obligation phone consultation before we begin work to determine if we can work together.

What will it cost?
A single session is $75. For a group of 4 or more sessions, paid in advance, it is $50 per session.

How do I make an appointment?
Call me at 707-481-9881. I offer a free, no obligation phone consultation to determine if we will be a good fit to work together. If so, we will schedule an appointment at a time convenient to both of us and I will give you directions. I am located near Forestville, an easy 15 minute drive from Santa Rosa, CA
