Hypnosis is a natural state of mind. Have you ever driven somewhere only to arrive and not really remember getting there? Have you ever been so into a book or a movie that you didn’t hear someone calling your name? You know the feeling just before you fall asleep or wake up? These are all examples of a light state of hypnosis.
Hypnosis is a heightened state of awareness in which the body and conscious mind (logical reasoning mind) are in a relaxed and peaceful state. The subconscious mind (emotion/feeling mind) remains alert and receptive to positive suggestions for change. During this state, one is able to focus on a specific thought, emotion, memory, or information while blocking out distractions.
As a certified hypnotherapist and RTT practitioner my job is to guide you into this special state; refresh, renew, rewire your subbconscious mind enabling you to make permanent, lasting change in your life
Hypnosis works by relaxing the conscious mind (logical reasoning mind) thus allowing access to the subconscious mind (emotion/feeling mind) which is where the real change happens. In this state, you are more open to positive suggestions, which help you achieve your goals quicker and easier. The subconscious mind is so important because this is where all of our emotions, beliefs, and memories are stored.
Think of the mind like a computer or a phone. It runs software (beliefs). Sometimes that software needs up-dating or the computer/phone starts to slow down or malfunction. Just like computers, we also need to upgrade our belief system. Many beliefs we have stored from childhood no longer serve us today, and often hold us back big time. You may or may not be consciously aware of them, but either way they are running in the background like malware on a computer.
This is why it is so important to get to the root source or belief that is causing the issue and change it for good. Removing limiting beliefs from your subconscious mind and replacing them with empowering ones is perhaps the single most impactful and powerful thing you can do to improve your life.
No! This is a common myth often portrayed in movies/entertainment. You are in complete control the entire time. You cannot be made to do anything against your will or outside of your moral code. You will not divulge any secrets or information you do not wish to share. Hypnosis can’t make you do something you don't want to do. You cannot get stuck in hypnosis. You can easily come out of hypnosis whenever you want. It is a choice to go into hypnosis, stay in it, or come out. For example, if a fire alarm went off, you would get up and exit the building. You would not wait for me to count you out of hypnosis. It is completely safe and is a natural state of mind which we all experience on a daily basis to some degree.
Yes! Everyone can be hypnotized IF they want to be and give consent. It is completely up to the client. You cannot be hypnotized against your will. Hypnosis is very effective if the client wants to experience it and wants to achieve the goal they are after.
YOU must want the change. It will not be effective if you are attempting hypnosis to solve a problem that someone else wants you to change. For example, your spouse wants you to quit smoking, but you aren’t really committed to this change.
In addition, a common misconception is that the strong-minded or very analytical are not easily hypnotized. In fact, the opposite is true. People who are highly intelligent or creative usually go into hypnosis easily.
If you have tried hypnosis before and have been unsuccessful, I can help! Each person is unique and has a different way of taking in information. Therefore not everyone responds the same way to the same hypnosis techniques. This is why I do NOT use generic scripts or one-size-fits-all therapy techniques. As your RTT practitioner, it’s my job to figure out how you take in information and use the tools and techniques most effective for you.
You do not necessarily need to be in a deep state of trance in order to access the subconscious mind or benefit from hypnosis. Still, some people may feel they are unable to be hypnotized. Even if you feel you are not “hypnotized,” your subconscious mind is being accessed and will pick up everything said while in hypnosis. This is where the transformation happens!
Hypnosis is very effective when applied properly by a skilled practitioner AND the client is committed to their goal and to change. Although hypnosis works more quickly than most traditional forms of therapy, it is not a magic quick fix. You still need to put in the work.
A study by Alfred A. Barrios, Ph.D., which was later reprinted in American Health Magazine, revealed the following success rates: Hypnotherapy: 93% success after 6 sessions, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: 72% success after 22 sessions, Psychoanalysis: 38% success after 600 sessions.
There is value in all three of these types of therapies depending upon the client and the situation. However, in my own experience with clients, I do find hypnosis to be the most effective with minimal sessions. I also find the change with hypnosis to be transformative and permanent.
There’s a reason that celebrities, winning sports teams, Olympic athletes and successful CEOs and companies use hypnosis and have been for years…it is extremely effective!
The experience of hypnosis is different for everyone. The general consensus is extremely calming and relaxing for both mind and body. Many people love this state and find it beneficial for stress reduction in general.
Although the word “hypnosis” comes from the Greek word “hypnos,” meaning “sleep” or the “coming on of sleep,” you will not be asleep or unconscious. You are very aware of your surroundings. But, in this special state of mind, you may choose to ignore distractions around you as you focus on the work your subconscious mind is doing. Some people become so relaxed that they may fall asleep. This is totally OK! Everyone is different. Some people consciously remember everything happening while in hypnotic state, while some remember only certain parts. Even if you do not consciously recall the entire session, your subconscious mind will have recorded every second of it and will be working to positively change your behavior in the direction you desire. In addition, the transformation portion of your session will be recorded for listening reinforcement of your new positive beliefs.
Working with my clients is a collaborative process and unique to each individual. Meaning, results will vary based on the client and their specific goals. Based on my experience, most clients see lasting transformation within 1 to 3 RTT sessions. However, there have been times when someone may need up to 12 sessions. Again, it really depends on the client and their therapeutic goals. We will work together to create a customized plan just for you.
Yes! Hypnosis is as effective when done remotely as it is in person. Plus, you get to relax from the comfort of your own home where you may feel more comfortable going into hypnotic state. My clients have seen tremendous success through their online sessions. It also allows clients from all over the world to access my services. All you need is a device and an internet connection.
A pre-payment in full is requested prior to booking your session. You may pay easily online via electronic invoice prior to your first session. Refresh Renew Rewire YOU accepts all major credit cards. All prices are in USD.
Insurance companies usually consider hypnosis as an alternative therapy and therefore do not cover hypnotherapy services.
Insurance providers, however, may provide reimbursements for services. Many clients are able to have a large percentage of therapy covered after reaching their deductible, based on their out-of-network benefits. We recommend contacting your specific insurance provider for details, before therapy services, to determine if any prior authorization is necessary and to learn more details about your specific deductible and reimbursement options. Therefore, medical insurance is not being accepted at this time.
