What Can Hypnosis Be Used For?
People frequently ask what kind of things hypnosis can be used for, and they are often surprised by the vast array of possibilities. Usually the first thing I like to tell them is that hypnosis is helpful for anything where your mind is influencing the situation. And the human mind is really quite powerful – what you are consciously aware of is just the tip of the iceberg.
What to Expect During Your First Session
During your first session, you’ll learn about hypnosis. You will understand how you will be using hypnosis and how your subconscious mind works. Most of this session is educational, because when people know more about the process and what to expect, they tend to do better.
After your questions have been answered, you will be guided in a brief hypnosis session where you start the process that will help you achieve your own goals. Once you emerge from hypnosis, you will spend time talking about your experience.
Before you leave, additional sessions will be scheduled. During those sessions you will spend much more time in hypnosis, where the real work will begin. It is recommended that sessions be spaced not more than two weeks apart; and depending on the issue being addressed, there are typically between four to six sessions. You will also receive audio recordings for you to listen to between sessions as well.
