Whether you are considering hypnosis for sports/performance enhancement, insomnia, to eliminate fears, or other areas, it is optimal to schedule more than two sessions. Many hypnotists will encourage clients to attend a minimum of six sessions for Weight Loss. I have a minimum requirement of three sessions for weight loss for those individuals who are prohibited to purchase more due to limited income. However, I highly recommend whether your goal is to lose weight or any other focus to consider purchasing the package plans as it is more economical and you will receive greater results. On-going coaching and reinforcement of your hypnotic induction will greatly increase your odds at succeeding and it is more cost effective. Clients who are accountable to their hypnotists and coach achieve an extremely higher success rate with their goals. Depending on your interests and needs we may also include other methods and approaches in our sessions such as Meridian Tapping (Emotional Freedom Technique) and Reiki to help achieve your goals. This will be included at no additional cost. Personal Coaching, will also be included in each session to help motivate, teach and empower you for optimal results.

My Approach: Inspiring and empowering people toward personal growth, healing and transition is my goal in working with you. I am successful if I work myself out of a job and give you the skills to see your strength and capabilities. My goal is to help you harness your unconscious wisdom, learn to make your own right decisions and get in touch with your own healing power. I will incorporate many approaches with Hypnosis if you are interested in learning and utilizing these methods and I also may refer you to another type of practitioner if I believe that can be of service to you.
Termination: When you have completed your initial program of hypnotism you may continue to work with me for as long as you like. Many clients do this or start to work with me in other areas of my service. In order to give you the best service and all you need do is give me advance notice when you would like to end your sessions. Several sessionsí notice is sufficient, although some long-term clients let me know several months in advance. When leaving is done this way it can become the most productive time in the experience for you. Even if you are not able to give me advance notice I will still do my best to help you leave well.
