Should I Choose Hypnosis or Therapy?

In most cases, you don’t have to choose. Hypnosis and Individual Therapy are highly complementary. We have found that we achieve the best results when we integrate hypnosis with cognitive and behavioral interventions.

How Does Hypnosis Work?

Human beings are generally in one of three states of consciousness: awake, asleep, or in a hypnagogic/hypnopompic state. The first two states are self-explanatory.

The third is a state that you pass through just before “falling asleep” (hypnagogia) and then the state as you are waking up (hypnopompia), just before you are fully awake. Both phases of sleep are akin to what your subconscious undergoes during hypnotic states.

One can also spontaneously experience a hypnotic state during the day, when your mind wanders or when you daydream. While in a hypnotic state, you’re neither fully conscious nor fully unconscious, but rather somewhere in between. You are not completely unaware of what is going on around you as you are when you are asleep, but your perception is altered. This allows for you to undergo safe, supportive treatment via positive suggestions from a trained therapist.

What Are the Benefits of Hypnosis?

A hypnotic state is similar to a meditative state, though you are less aware of what is going on around you. The sensation is very pleasant, and 15 minutes of relaxation in this state feels like hours of ordinary sleep. Most importantly, in this state, a therapist can access your long-term memory to determine the root of triggered behaviors and emotions that you want to change or control.

Is Hypnosis Always Effective?

With the majority of our clients, hypnotherapy is highly effective. While the level of suggestibility differs among individuals, the key to success lies in the client’s desire to change and participate in the process. The majority of conditions we help treat are aided with ongoing, long-term sessions and care.

What Is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of narrowed attention in which suggestibility is greatly heightened. A hypnotic state is achieved through a variety of methods and is used to impress upon the subconscious desired suggestions to have lasting effects. Hypnosis has been used as a form of clinical therapy since its approval in the late 1950s by the American Medical Association. Hypnosis is a safe, efficient tool for growth and for instilling positive, productive change into one’s life, particularly when integrated with other psychotherapeutic practices.

What Isn’t Hypnosis?

To understand what hypnosis is, you should also know what it is not. The media and popular culture have spread a lot of stereotypes and misconceptions about hypnosis. We’re here to create a safe space for you to discuss your feelings, work through your inner and outer obstacles, and find new tools to create a brighter life with.

In the course of therapy treatments, you will not be forced to do anything against your will. Hypnosis is not mind control. Hypnosis does not put you to sleep. Hypnosis does not induce amnesia. Hypnosis is not a supernatural practice.

Who Can Benefit From Hypnotherapy?

Anyone looking to create a positive change in their life. If you want to fix a problem, gain a competitive edge, achieve a goal, gain career success, or just feel better, hypnosis and therapy can help. Athletes, moms, smokers, executives, and public speakers are all people who can benefit, and have benefited from hypnotherapy.

What Is the Fee for Hypnosis?

Fees vary depending on your needs and are customized to the individual’s ability to pay.

Are your Hypnotherapy Sessions Covered by Insurance?

Health or medical insurance does not cover our services.

How Many Sessions Will It Take to Address My Situation?

The length of treatment depends on a variety of factors, including the presenting issue and the client’s goals. During their initial sessions, we collaborate with our clients to create a comprehensive treatment plan.
