“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.”
~Henry David Thoreau
Suggestive Hypnosis For Habits and Issues:
Hypnosis can be used for a number of habits and issues, to include weight reduction and maintenance, becoming a non-smoker, controlling stress and learning how to relax automatically. Issues and problems with sleep, career, sports, studying, relationships, and most any other area of life can be changed and enhanced successfully using hypnosis.
Beginning with initial client contact, either through phone, email or consultation, Rebecca discusses the client’s basic goal. The session, which lasts about 2 hours, includes further interviewing and discussion of core needs and goals. Dependent upon needs and goals, Rebecca will teach client tools, such as anchors, future pacing, using inner strengths and self-hypnosis to ensure client is prepared to meet outside influences that affect success. For a thorough understanding of a core issue Rebecca may offer parts work, to find the part that is giving the client comfort but in a sometimes unhealthy way; coming up with an agreement to do other, more healthy activities to ensure success.
The session interview assists Rebecca and the client in creating an effective, powerful and personalized hypnosis session. Often the effects of hypnosis are immediate but client reinforcement using the provided audio can ensure continued success.
Rebecca guides her client into a relaxing and peaceful trance induction, allowing the client to bypass the critical factor (the judging, analyzing, conscious mind) and use his or her subconscious mind to accept suggestions the client wants, in order to change and gain control over habits and issues.
The hypnosis session is recorded and the resulting reinforcement audio is made to a CD or an MP3 file can be emailed; or both upon request.
Suggestive Hypnosis Session: $135 (2 hours)
Please Note: Often one session is all that is needed when you use the reinforcement audio recorded during the session as instructed. For some ingrained, life long habits, such as weight or smoking issues, a second or third session may be needed. A regression “to cause” may also be beneficial. *
Recommendation for changing or eliminating deep personal habits: 3 sessions depending upon issue, goals, and individual’s needs. Session needs will be dependent upon depth and level of the issue and having a high motivation level toward change.
All regular sessions provide time for an interview and an understanding of hypnosis and discussion of goals. The separate consultation is for those who would like to meet with me first and who desire an extended time for discussion, goal setting, understanding hypnosis and regression or for spiritual mentoring. You will also receive susceptibility and/or modality tests, preparation materials and a short induction where we will begin reinforcing your goals with hypnosis or do a short practice induction for regression dependent upon time and requested session length.
Consultation: $75 per hour (Normally 1 to 2 hours upon request)
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a natural state of relaxation and/or level of inner focus that the average individual reaches on a daily basis. We all experience various levels of consciousness each day by way of falling asleep and sleeping, contemplation and repetition, reading, watching TV, driving, meditation, or daydreaming. These various levels of consciousness also correspond to the four main brainwave lengths of Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta states where the Alpha/Theta state is most experienced with the subconscious mind and where hypnosis and self-hypnosis takes place. According to the late Dr. Allen Chips, DCH., “Usual Altered States of Consciousness” refers to sleeping, day dreaming, or biochemical shifts such as fever, or other drug usage. “Applied Altered States of Consciousness” refer to meditation, prayer, and creative visualization and are all forms of hypnosis.
Can a person’s memory be erased?
No. But a certified hypnotherapist can help a person transform a memory that is causing problems.
Can everyone be hypnotized?
Yes, provided the individual has normal physiological and psychological functioning and therefore the ability to relax and concentrate. There is a positive correlation between a person’s willingness to relax and the ability to undergo hypnosis.
Do people under hypnosis go to sleep?
No, one should not expect to go to sleep. Instead the mind is in a state of hyper-awareness that feels very relaxing. If one does feel as if falling asleep, the mind will still accept all suggestions given and can be further strengthened by listening to a recorded session reinforcement cd.
Do people under hypnosis lose their will?
No. Hypnosis cannot detach the ego. People who are outgoing and want to have fun and relax usually influence the success of stage hypnosis. Hypnosis for healing is entirely different and an individual can accept or reject any suggestion given and awaken if they want.
