FAQ's


question

I live far away from you — how can we still work together?


answer

To meet the needs of people in different regions, I do excellent phone and Skype hypnosis sessions of various lengths. Especially in this tough economy I am committed to offering you this work in accessible and affordable forms so that you can get the help you need without straining your budget. Or if you want just a little help to get going on your own or want to get just a taste of what I do before trying a personal phone session, I also offer email consultations very inexpensively that give you my professional take/questions/recommendations and self-help resources on your situation.


question

How many sessions will it take for me to feel the power you say this work provides?


answer

Most of the modalities I do are "feel good" work — that is they get you long term results you like, but they also feel good right away because they get you aligned--your thoughts, feelings, attitudes, behaviors, etc. — with the goal you have. The harmony of that relieves stresses from previous disalignment and also energizes you. It's like unblocking a clogged hose, so you feel a surge of fresh energy coming through you during and by the end of your session!


question

Do you take credit cards?


answer

I do not currently take credit card payments but I do take secured PayPal payments that are easy to use.


question

Do you take insurance?


answer

I do not take insurance but I do give written receipts for sessions. Many insurance companies do reimburse for Hypnotherapy if it is recommended by a physician or therapist. Examples of that are for work such as managing weight, quitting smoking, reducing stress, clearing emotional baggage, and many other goals. In any case, Hypnosis remains one of the most cost-effective and efficient ways of creating lasting change that even makes your out of pocket cost go far and get you where you want, period.


question

The issues I want help with feel so personal, is this work confidential?


answer

Yes, I have worked for over 25 years in fields that require professional confidentiality, so I am both well aware of and practiced in protecting you. I do not speak with others about client sessions using any identifying information. I am committed to the understanding that your session belongs to you, not to me.


question

I'm a little scared to do this work because I don't know what will be next after this!! What do you recommend?


answer

Right, we can never know exactly what will be next, can we? I recommend trusting yourself as to whether this is a good step to take for you right now. Whatever your choice is, your next array of choices will reveal themselves from the new perspective of having done the work that is before you now. That said, I want to recognize that walking your own, unique path can be both exhilarating and also scary sometimes! As Princess Nastoya said in Gregory Maguire's novel Wicked, "When the times are a crucible, when the air is full of crisis, those who are the most themselves are the victims." I'm here to empower for that wonderful walk so you don't miss it and so that you succeed!!


question

Can I learn some of these techniques from you so I can do them on my own or is it only in a session with you?


answer

I was a professional teacher for over twenty years specializing in 1:1 instruction and I excel at recognizing and honoring your personal learning style with customized coaching. Most of the techniques I am strongly drawn to and practice with clients appeal to me because they are "clean", accessible, easy to learn and adapt, and most of all EFFECTIVE. I am happy to teach you ways to make this work your own and I am committed to not making you dependent on me — for me that's an issue of professional ethics.


question

What's the difference between an in-person, phone, and email session?


answer

About the same as any other communication in those same forms, with the exception of the content. For instance, because I get a lot of information from watching your body language in an in-person session, I may ask you over the phone about what's going on in your body at a given moment when I feel a shift in your energy or hear it in your voice. In the more general email consultations, I would point you to check in for yourself around certain things to consider that are likely to hold the "juice" of making the change you want. Another option is to do a distance session with Skype (downloads for free) so that we can see each other on our computer screens! In all my sessions, I check in regularly with the client to verify what is going on and how it is going for you to stay present in the moment, which is where the magic happens with this kind of healing and self-development work!


question

What are the ways you could work with my group to help us expand and move forward toward our goals?


answer

I can work with you to help your organization or group get moving in a direction you like through a 1:1 session with a single member who brings the learning and resources back to the group, or I can have a meeting with several or all of you. I give fun, informative workshop trainings to groups to ground you in the basics of many of the models I work with — the cream of the crop of almost thirty years of communication/learning/self-development work — and I can meet with you to apply their principles and generate solutions as your group incorporates the new practices into how they operate. If things are really stuck or there are even hard feelings, I mediate conflict resolution and get you all back to hearing one another. I facilitate creative group processes that reach for new approaches that meet all the needs expressed.


question

What would make me NOT a good match for your services?


answer

This is participative work: these techniques aren't pills that you take that "fix" you! For one thing, I don't think you're broken, even if you're really, really unhappy, or tired, or whatever! So if someone didn't want to show up with and engage their thoughts, feelings, behavioral choices, etc. in making the change they wanted, I would recommend them considering hiring someone else. I can hypnotize you till the cows come home, for, say, motivation, but changing your behavior requires taking a deep breath and beginning your exciting tasks at some point, right? So another aspect of successful work I do with people is that this is EMBODIED work, not just conceptual! The good news is that I have never ever met one single person who didn't effect change when they did "show up" as a whole person ready to engage in the change as such!
