Sleep

Do you ever lay in bed just trying to sleep? Do you rely on medications to sleep? What do you do while you’re laying in bed with all these various thoughts running through your mind? Do these thoughts keep you up? Or make it so you get up to do the task hoping that will allow you to sleep? Or what about pain with legs that move constantly? Or how about falling asleep just to wake a few hours later? If you’re like over 60 million Americans that have sleep issues you may feel trapped in a viscous cycle of medications, sleep doctors, chronic stress, failing relationships, etc all due to lack of sleep.

Did you know that 8 hours of rested sleep everyday can help you keep stress levels down? Or that 1 hypnosis session is equal to 8 hrs of rested deep sleep? That alone is why hypnosis feels absolutely wonderful to have done. Who wouldn’t want to do hypnosis just to re-energize their minds? I get the lack of sleep. After all, I have 3 sons full time with me under 3 years old. I get there isn’t always, “me” time. Or “my sleep” time. Sometimes I have wondered how can I get to sleep with a baby having colic while the other one sleeps. Or the “when will this baby sleep through the night” stage for me to sleep. I get it as a parent and the sleep issues prior to having any children.

What if there was a better way than “hoping” to sleep? What if there was a way to not rely on medications to sleep everyday? What if you could calm your thoughts allowing you to sleep? What if the crawling sensations in the legs ceased allowing your body to just relax and let go? Can you imagine how your life could be? What kind of longevity could you add just being able to sleep? Imagine the side effects from the sleep medication gone. How would that affect your body? How much money would you be saving between the prescription and the doctor follow ups? What if you have the ability to sleep soundly, deeply for 8 hours how would your life be different? What if this healing could happen for you like it has for the millions that turn to hypnosis for a better way of living? What if that person could be you?

Suggestibility what is that?

From the time we’re conceived to the time we are six years old our learning of the world comes from the primary caregiver. From six years old to nine years old we have our friends, teachers, and others in our environment to help guide us on this learning path. From ages nine to fourteen years old the secondary caretaker begins to influence how we learn even more.

I am going to focus on the basic right now for the conception to six years old group. For example the way I grew up was what my mom said and did were the same thing. When my mom said she had to work that meant she had to work and she left to go to work. This is a direct literal way of understanding which in turn I became physical suggestible. For me I can listen to an online hypnosis app and I maybe able to get some benefits but not as much as seeing a hypnotherapist for my issue. The physical protects their emotions by projecting out in a more physical way.

An example of how some grow up opposite of what I did their caregiver may say one thing and do the opposite. Caregiver may say I am going to work and then not really go to work that same day. The caregiver goes elsewhere or does something opposite of what they were going to do. So their child would see this and look for the hidden meaning of this which creates an emotional suggestibility. The emotional type of person can benefit the most from a hypnotherapist vs an online hypnotic app. The emotional protects their physical body by showing their emotions first.

There is nothing right or wrong about your type of suggestibility. It allows me to better assist you on your journey of self-empowerment. When you have your first session with me I can test your suggestibility to know which tools in my tool box will work best for you. This is another way having a hypnotherapist is much better than finding an online hypnotic source to listen to it. Custom made sessions for you to achieve better results the first time and beyond.

What to expect for your 1st hypnosis session

There is paperwork to fill out that I will send out to you by email. This questionnaire allows me to know if I am able to help you based on many things asked. The more you answer with honesty the better. The sooner I get it back the better so I can score the questions and get a chance to read about you a little bit ahead of time. This helps me know which tools to use during our session.

Have zoom (video conferencing service downloaded) or skype downloaded. Either one of these services allow us to see each other face to face as if I am there in the room with you. Which this helps me with some tests I need to do where I can see you.

Next we talk about the paperwork you filled out. Answer any questions you may still have. Talk about your goals, what you would like to see improve and how motivated you are to make this work for you. Talk about hypnosis what it is and isn’t. Answer anymore questions you may have about the hypnosis process.

The next step that is only for the 1st session I will need to test your suggestibility. Which to do this I need to see you, be by a table or a chair with an arm rest. I will ask you some questions and the test is not a pass or fail. There is no way to fail a suggestibility test. It’s easy, painless, and helps me know which tools in my tool box to use for your session.

After all the above is complete we move onto making sure of your goals again and the reasons for them. This is to help you succeed. Once that is done I hypnotize you to get the positive suggestions directly into your subconscious. This bypasses the critical mind and the conscious mind that stops you from living the life you know you deserve.

From this point I do a little bit of suggestions to help make it easier to get back into the state of hypnosis for the next session. This will allow more time to work on your goals during future sessions.

The last step is to come back out of the hypnosis. Take time to think, ask any questions, let me know how you felt and when you would like to schedule the next session. Keep in mind with hypnosis it’s not a life long need to keep coming to see me. It does take less time than traditional therapy to be treated for any issues you are seeking help for. Which does save you money long term in so many ways. We then end the zoom or Skype session.

What does a hypnosis session feel like?

It feels like a very deep sense of calmness and or relaxation. There are changes that occur in your body nightly to allow you to sleep. With a guided hypnosis session the same or similar changes take place. You may feel your heart rate slows down, your breathing is better (due to taking in more oxygen from the abdomen versus the taught breathing with shoulders going up), tingling sensations in your limbs, dry mouth, dry lips, and overall feeling very calm or relaxed while still hearing the sounds around you during a session. What you may feel the 1st time may not happen the next time. The more you have a guided session the easier it is to go back to the state of hypnosis quicker, faster and deeper. Which this helps get more accomplished in the sessions. It truly feels a amazing to have a session done that is tailored to you versus online where it’s for anyone and some suggestions work and some may not. Also you are in charge of what you want the positive suggestions to be. This all helps make the hypnosis session more comfortable.

Talk Therapy Vs Hypnotherapy

I value educating others in an un-biased way. Letting others decided with full confidence in what they chose for themselves without being judged. I too, have done “traditional talk therapy” for over 16 years. I never did get any better from any of those years spent in “traditional therapy”. I never got out of old hurts, or habits from “traditional therapy” it wasn’t until God led me to hypnosis did I find the healing I needed from within. Hypnotherapy is truly a way to change your life after 1 session with me guiding you. Just 1 session is an excellent road to take anywhere you want to be for the best you deserve in life. I believe in you and I believe in the power of us working as a team to beat whatever you’re going through.

Traditional Therapy”

“Hypnotherapy”

  1. Insurance won’t cover service as hypnosis doesn’t keep you sick as it can heal a lot of issues that traditional ways can’t. (That’s not to say that we don’t need traditional help like medications, or doctors as we still need them to help us at times.)
  2. Every session involves cognitive portion with hypnosis time may vary which one gets most time spent on and the time varies from 60 min to 90 min.
  3. Not regulated in many states. only California, Colorado, Florida, Washington, Minnesota, Ohio, and New York currently have any laws regarding practicing)
  4. No “official government” hypnosis/hypnotherapy licensing requirements.
  5. Over 145 topics within various subjects that can be healed using hypnotherapy.
  6. Cost not covered by then insurance and can vary from $250 plus for 1 60 minute session to which I charge less to help my services affordable for everyone seeking my help.
