Hypnosis used to be a woo-woo party trick with spinning discs and pocket watches, but it’s come a long way since then.
Dentists use hypnosis with their patients. And my next-door neighbour gave birth with hypnosis! No pain, no drugs.
It’s used widely in medicine, sports performance, phobia treatment and a host of other applications.
Here are the answers to commonly asked questions:
What do you do? How does this work?
We’ve got two parts to our minds – the thinking, acting conscious mind and the emotional, imaginative, habitual unconscious mind. When you’re deeply relaxed I can talk with the unconscious mind and change the way it thinks – easily and permanently.
What if I can’t be hypnotised?
Good question! Almost everyone can be hypnotised. Some people pride themselves on not being hypnotisable. Which is silly, really – as all you need is the desire to be hypnotised, an IQ of at least 80 and the ability to follow instructions.
What does it feel like?
Most people experience a calm state of deep relaxation. For some it can feel like they’re drifting off to sleep (although it’s NOT sleep) – for others it’s a relaxed awareness. And you’re always in control!
Can you make me do something I don’t want to do?
No way! You are in complete control. I can’t make you do anything you don’t want to do. This is why I ask my clients to be at least a 9 out of 10 in their desire to give up their habit. (No clucking like a chook or anything else that would embarrass you – you’re here to stub out a habit, not behave like a dill!)
What am I going to do once I’ve had the session?
Whatever you want! You’ll have more time and energy to do the things you really want to. One of the things we’ll talk about it the new habits you’d like to put in place.
So some clients decide to walk more or go to the gym. They want to drink more water, or eat more healthy fruits and vegetables. Some read more or spend more quality time with their families. Some decide to try something new, like yoga or cycling. Whatever ‘health’ or ‘happiness’ or ‘success’ means to them!
What’s the investment?
Gaining your health, your confidence, your pride and a sense of control over your own life are all priceless. And for many people the rate of a session to end the habit once and for all is made up for in a few short weeks of no longer buying cigarettes. I charge just $395 for the session, which takes about an hour and a half.
What if it doesn’t work?
Sometimes there is a conflict in the mind that prevents us being entirely successful in one session, or people have a stressful event in their lives and find themselves back smoking again. There’s no shame in that – and if you’re willing to explore whatever is holding you back, then you’re welcome to come in for another session for just $190. The majority of my clients are successful in that initial session, though – so keep that in mind!
