Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What about confidentiality? In every way, your confidentiality is guaranteed.

Will I be in a group? No. I offer exclusive, one-on-one sessions, fully customized to your needs.

What happens is a session? After asking a few questions, I create a customized hypnosis script. While you relax in my comfortable reclining chair, I talk to your subconscious mind by using carefully constructed phrases, ideas and images. Clients often report feeling extremely relaxed during their sessions.

Will I give up control during a session? No. You maintain control throughout, though you might feel very relaxed.

How long does a session take? Usually, just an hour.

What happens after a session?  Will I be ok to work or drive? Yes, you will leave alert and refreshed. 

I'm concerned I might not be hypnotizable... Hypnosis is not a trick, it's a capability that we all have. I work with your mind to assist you to access hypnosis in the most natural way for you. 

Where is your office?  I have a first-floor handiap accessible office at 35 State Street, Northampton.

What will it cost? I offer a sliding scale...You decide how much to pay for your session.

How does that work? People are usually so pleased with their session that they are happy to pay whatever they can afford. 

Do you offer any guarantee? I offer a money-back guarantee: if you feel you did not benefit from your session, I will gladly refund your money.

Where do I start? You can book a free consultation or go straight into your first session.
