I’ve seen hypnotized people act silly on stage; Will I do things I don’t want to do? Can my mind be controlled?

You won’t do or think anything under hypnosis that you wouldn’t normally do or think. You can’t be controlled. If people in a stage show act silly it’s because they want to.

Can anyone be hypnotized? How does hypnosis work?

Yes, anyone who wants to can be hypnotized. Hypnosis relaxes the conscious mind and provides access to the unconscious mind where most of our behavior originates. With my guidance you literally change undesirable emotions habits and behaviors into new desirable ones. You create a new you!

Should I do anything before hypnosis to prepare? What does hypnosis feel like?

Hypnosis is refreshing, relaxing, and energizing; for some even more refreshing than sleep.
Most important is the fact that it works— people get results.

How do I find a qualified professional? How long does therapy last? How many sessions does it take?

The number of required sessions varies between individuals and the nature of the therapy. As
a rule hypnotherapy is considered short-term therapy compared to conventional psychotherapy.

Can hypnosis help me with my medical and or dental issues?

Hypnosis has been clinically proven to be a very effective and powerful adjunctive or complimentary treatment for a great number of medical and dental conditions and issues. The connection between the mind and body is a very powerful one and hypnosis works with that connection.For a partial list of commonly treated issues visit my health and wellness page at Click Here for Health and Wellness. It is important to remember that working with a hypnotherapist on medical, dental (or mental health) issues will require a written referral from an appropriately licensed doctor, or mental health professional unless the hypnotherapist is licensed to practice medicine, dentistry, or psychotherapy. Your hypnotherapist should know exactly how to guide you in this process.
