Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
Wellness Hypnotherapy follows a structured approach to scope out the presenting problem, to identify the root cause.
Once the root cause is identified, the work involves altering the meaning and belief system attached to it, to eliminate what holds you back and effect lasting change.
Will I be conscious / awake?
Yes you will be fully conscious, awake and in control throughout the process. Hypnosis is a deep relaxation of the nervous system. It shuts down physical and mental chatter and gives you heightened focus and concentration to explore your subconscious mind and use it’s power to your advantage.
It’s a very powerful means of changing the way we use our minds to control perception and our bodies.
Note that a hypnotherapist simply cannot make you do what you do not want to do. In other words, you are fully in control at all times. A hypnotherapist cannot get you to rob a bank or write out a blank check or commit a crime. That’s only in the movies. So rest assured.
How long are the sessions?
The first session is for 1.5 hours; it involves scoping and identifying root causes.
Depending on areas identified, the subsequent therapy session will be either 1.5 hours long or 2.5 hours long.
Conclusive results will be evident by the end of the therapy session. There will be no need for ongoing sessions in most cases.
How many sessions will it take?
Sometimes during the scoping session, more than one presenting problem could surface. If they turn out to have overlapping root causes, they can be addressed simultaneously within the subsequent therapy session of 1.5 hours or 2.5 hours.
In some cases multiple presenting problems with unique root causes, they be addressed individually and separately for optimal results.
