QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
There are a lot of questions and even misunderstandings about hypnotherapy and hypnosis. Find answers to some of the more common questions below, as well as questions and answers about undergoing treatment at Consulting Hypnosis.
WHAT DOES HYPNOSIS FEEL LIKE?
In nutshell, hypnosis feels WONDERFUL! It is a very special and singular experience that is rather challenging to describe but you can expect to feel at least one dominant sensation surrounded by secondary and tertiary sensations. Often people report pleasant and positive feelings of lightness, heaviness, numbness, tingling, feeling 'out of body', time distortion where the session feels very long or very short compared to the actual length of the session, inexplicable temperature changes, amnesia of what I have said during the session itself. All that said, nothing will feel overwhelming or frightening, it will all fell WONDERFUL but you will know you are in trance. No two experiences are exactly the same and the experience of hypnosis will often get deeper and richer over time.
CAN I BE HYPNOTIZED?
Yes. Absolutely. Though there are many conversations and opinions that surround 'hypnotizabilty' the answer is yes, you can be hypnotized. One of the important elements of a consultation is determining the best access points and customized hypnotic experience for you. As the saying often goes, the stronger the mind, the better the result but rest assured...you can and will experience the beauty and power of trance.
HOW MUCH DOES HYPNOSIS COST?
Hypnosis is an investment due to it's efficacy and velocity. Session investments include your intial consult, your personalized hypnosis session, short term and long term follow up's with me and any troubleshooting that may be required. Sessions typically range from between $300 to $500/per and packages of sessions typically range from $600-$1200 however I am always open to negotiation. My priority is always to be of the utmost service to you and I do not want the investment to be at all stressful for you.
DO YOU ACCEPT MY INSURANCE?
In Ontario, the short answer is sadly no. There were times when certain insurance companies were honouring hypnosis as a therapeutic intervention but sadly now, it appears the sands of time have shifted that away from our hypnotic favour. If you have private medical insurance that is particularly wonderful I invite you to submit using my NGH# 42740.
WILL YOU MAKE ME DO SOMETHING I'M NOT COMFORTABLE WITH?
Never. No. Nope. Stage hypnosis is wildly entertaining but it has created the widespread illusion that trance can make you do things you don't want to. I discuss that illusion and what is occuring onstage during our initial consult. Not only is that a impossibility with the hetero-hypnosis protocol we are practicing, your desire is a REQUIREMENT for any changes to occur. Hypnosis can offer amazing access and insight into your behaviours and limiting beliefs but desire is the lever that allows for any transformation.
HOW DO I CHOSE THE RIGHT HYPNOTIST FOR ME?
Information, intuition and instinct. I always say during consultations, "If it is not a HELL YESS, it is a HELL NO." You are the captain of your ship and you will know whether I or another hypnosis really resonates with you, hears you and is aligned in your vision for the present and future. The first step in making this decision is a complimentary consultation.
HOW DO I HAVE A CONSULTATION? DO I NEED TO PAY FOR A CONSULTATION?
I would LOVE to meet you! Please book your complimentary, no obligation consultation at WWW.CALENDLY.COM/CONSULTINGHYPNOSIS. I will explain everything you need to know about hypnosis, what to expect and how to get the most and best results from your experience. We will then get crystal clear together exactly how hypnosis can most powerfully serve you. Consults are over the phone in Eastern Standard Time and we typically need about an hour and a half together.
WHAT CAN HYPNOSIS HELP ME WITH?
Really the question perhaps should be, what can hypnosis NOT help you with. The application of trance are seemingly limitless. If you can state it as a desire in a sentence, hypnosis can support you and bring you there with an incredible sense of ease and empowerment.
IS HYPNOSIS SAFE? IS IT DANGEROUS AT ALL?
Hypnosis is a natural birthright of humanity. It is safe, predictable, powerful and positive. You needn't be afraid of myths that float around such as; Can I get stuck in trance? NOPE. Will I cluck like a chicken? NOPE What about my bank account information? I would only interact with your finances when you happily send over you investment, eager to start your hypnotic journey with me.
