Private sessions for hypnotherapy are typically 1.5 – 2 hours long. They can be done over secure video call (e.g. Zoom) or in person/office. A standard 3-5 session protocol has been shown to be most effective in using a variety of techniques to attack your issue from multiple angles.
The most efficient way to get started, for the vast majority of reasons you may want to try hypnotherapy, is to fill out an online form (click here) about what you want to change, then schedule a 1 hour phone call to make sure we understand what you are looking for so we can create the best possible custom hypnotic recording for you. That recording employs the Suggestion Therapy protocol, which begins the process of reprogramming or planting new seeds of thought, belief, and/or behavior in your subconscious. If you are unable to fill out the online form or would rather meet in person to get started, you can schedule a 2.5-3-hour session where we would work together to uncover some of the emotions and beliefs you have around the issue, then determine how you would RATHER feel and work as many of those into the positive affirmations / suggestions that need to be included in your custom hypnotic recording.
Once in hypnosis (and this only takes a very light level of hypnosis, similar to daydreaming or meditating), whether in person or listening to the recording, you will be relaxed and enjoy focusing on the imagery you hear as the hypnotherapist delivers the positive suggestions to your subconscious mind. You will be provided with a link to your recording (an .mp3 file) so that you can take advantage of the fact that repetition is very helpful in learning something new or different and retaining it. Some suggestions may start to cause behavior shifts right away, some may take a few days, months, or even longer to really take root, but this is a great way to plant the seeds of change!
We have helped so many smokers become smoke free over the years, that we’ve been able to streamline that process down to a video you can watch to understand how hypnotherapy will help you stop smoking and simple online form to be able to create your custom recording.
The second session is typically Parts Therapy, which is helpful in reducing or eliminating the possibility of self-sabotage. This session involves uncovering 2 or more parts within you that have conflicting goals, for example, there may be part of you that knows you should eat healthy, then another part of you who wants a chocolate bar!! Every part of us is there for a reason, so we don’t get rid of any part, but learn why they are doing what they’re doing and find a way to help them work together better for you to achieve your desired goals. This involves the client doing much of the talking once they are in hypnosis, so again it’s not a real deep level of hypnosis needed.
The third session is typically Regression Therapy, where we again drill into the major emotions and beliefs surrounding your issue, then in hypnosis, regress you back to the earliest memory you have of feeling the primary emotion that’s driving the unwanted behavior today. Once the memory is identified, we work to reframe it so the subconscious mind can let go of it and redirect the energy it had been using to hold that information down into more positive, natural uses, which allows your body to heal itself! This can be the most powerful type of session to help change your mind and body to their right and perfect balance. Sometimes the root of the problem can be reached in the first Regression Therapy session, sometimes it may take awhile for your mind to be comfortable addressing some heavy hitting memories, so other less concerning ones might be presented to you at first to get you more comfortable with the process and confident that you can deal with whatever comes up later.

We’ve also now established hypno-coaching sessions, which can either be used from the beginning if you need the hypnotherapist to help you gain clarity on your goals and put you on the fast track to achieving them, or these sessions can be used as continued support after an initial set of hypnotherapy sessions to provide more support and accountability as you continue on your healing journey.
