A Guide to Hypnotherapy – Sessions and FAQs

Please keep in mind that I always start clients off with 3 Sessions, once a week for 3 weeks. This ensures a good foundation for change.

Facts Everyone Should Know

Hypnotherapy is a brief form of therapy using hypnosis to help people overcome their problems in a shorter period of time with less costs

Most Rapidly Growing Approach

Hypnotherapy is the most rapidly growing approach to therapy. Physicians, dentists, chiropractors, clergy, psychologists and psychiatrists recognize hypnotherapy as a valuable therapeutic approach.

The Mind

The mind works on two levels: the conscious and the subconscious. The conscious level is responsible for everyday thinking and represents 12 % of the mind. The subconscious, the other 88 %, handles our bodily functions (breathing, digestion, etc.) and is the center for our habits and behaviors.

Hypnosis is Safe

Hypnosis is a natural state of increased suggestibility. Suggestibility is the process by which we learn our habits and behaviors. Through hypnosis, undesirable habits and behaviors are changed both consciously and subconsciously. What hypnosis allows a therapist to do is reach subconscious processes quickly, and in turn, the client received quicker relief with less cost.

Can I Be Hypnotized?

YES! Every person is hypnotizable

You May Not Feel Hypnotized

When in hypnosis, you are not in a trance, asleep or unconscious. You are in a heightened state of awareness, where it is normal for your thoughts to drift from one subject to another; therefore, many people do not feel hypnotized.

Duration of Therapy

The number of sessions depends on the type of problem, severity of the problem, how long you have had the problem, and your individual suggestibility.

“Betsie, thank you. I’ m feeling great and something that I had not expected happened…. All my neck and upper back pain and tension has gone away along with the grinding of my teeth!!!! I told my dentist about you too–Dr Thomas McDonald. —- All the best to you, love & light, Lisa”
“OK here is my experience with my first Hypnotherapy session: I had three issues that were bothering me. We only focused on one, but for some reason after clearing up the first one, the other two seem to not concern me. I have no idea what actually happened and like I told you after the session, I fought it because I was not sure what I might experience. I finally said, that is it, Betsie cannot help me if I don’t completely surrender. I did just that!!!!!”
I felt myself going very deep. I felt a peace unlike any peace I have ever experienced. I literally floated out of the office and went home and just chilled out.
The next day, my writing was easier and more creative I was not bothered with being too concerned with things I cannot change.
I have felt better each day and because of the session I am on the road to a new me. Thank you so much. You have a gift”. D.G. photographer, author
“Betsie has helped me in such a way, I could never repay for what she has done and in such a short amount of time that years of therapy and counseling could not. It has been just a short few months. I am so grateful I found Betsie and look forward to our continued work together. I wish everyone could know Betsie and how much love and peace she can give and teach.” — D.C. Accountant
“Betsie’s sessions have helped to uncover unconscious feelings and desires. This has helped me to clearly understand my feelings so that I can move forward with confidence. I believe that hypnotherapy will help speed the process of discovery much more quickly than conventional therapy.”— Belinda, Health Care Professional
“I had finally made a decision to quit smoking and thought hypnosis would be my best bet! After several unsuccessful tries with the patches, gum and even one time of quitting cold turkey. So I contacted Betsie and made an appointment. I was very nervous, of course, as I had a few preconceived ideas about hypnosis and what really happens. But upon meeting Betsie she put me at ease right away. She explained everything and answered every question for me. Betsie was very professional and very caring. I started her three-week program to quit smoking and found it to be the best thing for me. Each week along with the hypnosis I decreased my cigarettes by half. Much better than cold turkey and less cravings. By the third week I was off cigarettes and haven’t had one since! I very seldom have cravings but when I do they are controllable. Hypnosis is the way to go and I would recommend it and Betsie.” — Becky A, Front End Manager, Ingles Supermarkets
“Yes, I really feel like she is teaching me a lot about how to not dwell on negatives and always stay positive. I may not understand everything but I do know that she is a positive influence in my life right now. I really can open up to her about things and she is so helpful at retraining my thought process to focus on a more positive way of life. I am constantly searching and reading things about how powerful our minds are and how our attitudes determine whether we are successful and happy in our relationships, work, and life in general. I have such a peace and happiness now about all aspects of my life since I first started with her. I wake up and look forward to every new day that I have. I am so blessed with a wonderful husband, family, job, and health. She is teaching me how to see the good instead of all the bad. I signed up for three more sessions because I can’t get enough of this new way of thinking. It is so freeing”. – Christina
