Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a method of therapy that is used to resolve an emotional, psychological or physical issue. Hypnosis utilizes a trance state, allowing a person to move past their conscious mind to access the root cause of the presenting issue.

What is Depth Hypnosis?

Depth Hypnosis is a highly effective therapeutic tool that combines elements of Buddhism, Shamanism, Energy Medicine, Transpersonal Psychology and Hypnotherapy. A Depth Hypnosis Practitioner draws from each of these modalities in order to create long lasting healing.

How is Depth Hypnosis different from talk therapy?

In talk therapy we use our conscious mind to "think" about our problems. With Depth Hypnosis we talk about the issues but we want to find out what is causing the conflict and "fix it." Old beliefs and thought patterns are stored in our subconscious mind. Depth Hypnosis accesses those memories to allow healing of the initial wound to create change in our present lives.

How many sessions will it take to help me with my issues?

Resolving an issue depends on the nature of the presenting problem and the client's attachment to it. Usually a client will feel progress within three to four sessions. At that time it will be easier to predict how many more sessions one would want or need.

What is Shamanism?

Shamanism is an ancient healing modality that teaches one to access inner wisdom. It is an ancient way of communicating with one's inner spirit.

What is regression therapy?

Regression therapy uses early or past-life experiences as a source to help solve and heal current life problems.
