PRIVATE SESSIONS

Private Sessions are by appointment only and are held in our home office in St Albert.  When you schedule an appointment an email will be sent confirming the date & time and will also give you directions and the address to our home office.  See below for further details on scheduling a private session.

WHAT DOES A HYPNOSIS SESSION INVOLVE?
A discussion precedes the hypnosis, as we identify issues, goals and perceived obstacles. With client’s co-operation and permission, hypnosis is then introduced. During the hypnotic state, you will receive the suggestions or do the work agreed upon between the hypnotherapist and yourself. The suggestions are designed to allow your subconscious mind to accept and process the information to bring about the desired changes. At the end of each hypnosis session, you return to full alertness feeling relaxed and energized.

HOW LONG IS EACH SESSION?
Each session is scheduled for one hour. . Sometime a session might be shorter because we’ve accomplished our goal for the session and on other occasions a session will be longer because we need to deal with an issue that emerges.

WHAT IF I CAN’T BE HYPNOTIZED?
Only a very small percentage of the human population cannot be hypnotized. There are only three types of people that cannot be hypnotized:

  1. A person in a psychotic process or with a thought disorder
  2. A person with a low IQ
  3. A person who really does not want to be hypnotized

All that is required is average intelligence and a normal ability to concentrate. Although some studies show that entering a hypnotic state is easier for people who are bright and who have good imaginations, the key factor is your willingness to cooperate.

The truth is: all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. Three conditions must be met for a person to benefit from hypnosis: the person must agree to be hypnotized, participate in the process with their full attention and be able to use their imagination or improvise.

WILL I REMEMBER EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS UNDER HYPNOSIS?
Yes. You can remember everything that happens, but like dreams, some things may slip from your memory. Rest assured, you will remember everything that is important for you to remember, and your subconscious retains everything even when you don’t think you’re really listening.

HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?
Most issues can be resolved with just one session. The number of sessions required depends on the problem or issue for which the client is seeking help. It also depends on how long the client has had the issue or problem, their motivation to change, their ability to follow instructions and their responsiveness to hypnosis. Unlike many psychotherapists I don’t want life-long clients and don’t want my clients dependant on me. I want to empower my clients so they can rely on themselves.

DO THE PRIVATE SESSION PROGRAMS INCLUDE CD’S?
Any hypnosis programs that I recommend for home reinforcement are included at no extra charge.

ARE RESULTS GUARANTEED?
No. I’m good, but I’m not God. I cannot guarantee human behavior. My client’s results depend on their motivation to change and their ability to follow instructions.

SCHEDULING A SESSION
Upon scheduling an appointment a confirmation of the date and time along with pertinent forms that you need to complete will be sent to you via email. We do request a deposit upon scheduling your appointment – this verifies that you are indeed committed to yourself & your appointment. The deposit of at least 50% of the session cost is required to confirm your appointment ($99.50 or if you wish you may pay full amount $199) and must be received in our office prior to your session date unless previous arrangements have been arranged and approved. Please note that we are unable to accept credit card payments at this time. As most people now use online banking – We prefer email money transfers.Interac transfers can be sent to: info@higherstatehypnosis.ca – Please use the date of your appointment as the answer to the question in numerical month day, and year. e.g. Sept 19 2012 would be 091912.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I HAVE TO MISS MY SESSION?
I expect the courtesy of 24 hours notice, otherwise that session is charged at the full session rate. See my disclosure form for detailed policies. Please, as we respect your time, we ask that you respect ours as well
