Frequently Asked Questions on Hypnosis

1. What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a process of entering into the state of mind called a trance. The trance is a very natural state of mind that we experience regularly. When we are engrossed in reading a book and are unaware of everything else around us and any things that are presently going on in our life, we are in a trance. This can also happen at a while watching a move or live performance. While at work when we find ourself losing track of all that is going on around us and start to daydream, we are in a trance.

Your Rockland County hypnotherapist has the skill to gently guide you into this state of mind and while you are in this state state, your subconscious is open to incorporating new beliefs and attitudes. Then your conscious mind can be influenced to act upon these new thoughts within your subconscious mind.

2. What is holistic hypnosis?

Most hypnotists will guide you to resolve your particular challenges. But a holistic hypnotist will additionally encourage you to make important and healthy complimentary changes. One example of our holistic approach is in our smoking cessation program, where besides quitting smoking you’ll be inspired and educated to eat healthier, sleep better sleep and exercise more, so that you can live a healthier life.

4. How many sessions will I need?

This will depend on what you are looking for help with. Although our quit smoking hypnosis program encompasses only one session, our other programs will typically include a first session that will last 1 hour and 45 minutes.

5. What will my first session of hypnotherapy entail?

Your first hypnosis session will involve going over your confidential questionnaires and coaching you briefly on your lifestyle before learning about your goals and what you wish to accomplish from your hypnotherapy.
