hypnotherapy & coaching faqs
Wisdom is powerful
Q. Your site talks about the 'whole self' - body, mind and spirit. When you say 'spirit' what exactly are you referring to? God? Religion?
A. When I say 'spirit', I am referring to your inner peace and happiness. By engaging with me to help you stop smoking, shed the weight or stress, etc. ...I must know about the things that make you happy and your self-care because I use that insight in my work with you. What you believe about God or religion is your personal business, however, I will admit that I do 100% believe in unseen help and miracles. I've read and learned enough to know this is true AND I've had my own miracles of sorts. I myself have incredible intuition which I also use when working with people. Again, your 'spirit' is really about your heart's content, fulfillment and delight.
Q. Are you different from a psychologist?
A. Yes - I am different from a psychologist. While I did take a number of psychology classes in college and pull from many psychology processes, I am not a psychologist. Instead, as a coach and hypnotherapist I support my clients' well-being by focusing on my clients' desired outcomes, creating realistic steps to get there and use my hypnotherapy training to insert subconscious seeds that create self-motivation and strengthen the forward moving journey. My clients leave each session with new tools and perspective that support their whole well-being. Generally, I will ask a few questions regarding one's history, however I do not focus on the past as I am interested in focusing on your bright future and moving you forward.
Q. I tried hypnotherapy and it didn't work. Why should I try it again with you?
A. I don't know why it didn't work for you previously.
I always emphasize to my clients the importance of listening to the personalized audio during the day and before bed so that the therapeutic audio fortifies the change process. I am confident that when people are really ready to change...THEY CAN AND DO with the right help. My clients have been very successful and have made (and continue to do so) life-long changes that support their whole well-being. I've been very successful as a coach and chose to train as a hypnotherapist knowing that when one's heart and subconscious mind are aligned with the same desired outcomes...anything is possible. It happened for me, it happens for my clients...and it will happen for you as long as you are truly ready to step into the 'new you'. This is why I encourage you to complete the quiz . I want you to be certain you are ready to commit to your own health & wellness.
Q. I've heard stories about hypnotherapists making people do things they didn't want to. Should I be concerned?
A. No need to be concerned. Your subconscious mind is there to protect you in every way. Your subconscious mind will never accept an idea that does not resonate with your intuition and heart. You are fully aware (and very relaxed) during your hypnotherapy session which is the necessary state for your subconscious mind to receive the right language and ideas that move you forward to your desired outcomes and desired state of being. In addition to releasing unhealthy patterns and creating new supportive habits, I always help clients engage and connect with their heart - their powerhouse of courage, unconditional love and optimal well-being that ALWAYS has their back!
NOTE: What I've learned is that most people aren't familiar with hypnotherapy or associate it with stage performance hypnosis where people do silly acts on stage.
You might be one of those people who wonder Am I going to do something I don't want to when I'm in hypnosis?
The answer is a resounding NO, you will NOT do anything you don't want to while in hypnosis. To put it in laymen's terms...hypnosis is so effective because like a song you can't get out of your head...so are the positive seeds that are infused into your subconscious mind/library. All I am doing is creating new self-talk and new ideas that we discussed during our sessions. You are the one who knows what you want for yourself and so I use your own words to create the positive seeds that will be infused into your mind while in hypnosis - a deeply relaxed state of mind & body. Think of a song you can't get out of your head...imagine that song being beautiful positive imagery and heartfelt solutions that bring you peace, joy, motivation, more love...it's such a beautiful NON-INVASIVE therapeutic process that truly has helped millions of people through the centuries. At it's core...hypnosis simply bypasses your critical (and often judging) conscious mind and creates programming that after a short period of time - or instantaneously- becomes automatic - in the same way that driving a car is automatic. Now, repetition is key for ANY behavior pattern to become second nature which is why my clients receive and use a personalized hypnosis audio in order to supplement the change process. Naturally, most things that are unfamiliar can be a bit frightening. And so if you're not familiar with hypnotherapy, here's a YouTube Video to help you become more familiar and comfortable with the process of hypnosis.
