We all go in and out of trance regularly. Daydreaming is a typical example of this. It is always up to YOU whether you choose to go into trance in a therapeutic environment. Of course, there are those that are more suggestible and open than others. And the old adage “practice makes perfect” most definitely applies. If you can focus, you can be hypnotized.


Hypnosis is a very powerful tool for change, and your unconscious mind IS your faithful servant. Direct communication with your unconscious mind can be achieved through hypnosis. Your unconscious mind is the seat of all of your emotions, memories, and habits, and where permanent changes begin. Your hypnotherapist is simply an educated guide to assist you in communicating in the most effective way with your powerful unconscious mind.


Whatever changes you seek, you have to want them for hypnosis to work. Remember, you never do anything you don’t want to do in hypnosis.


In a review of literature published in Psychotherapy: Theory Research and Practice (Volume 7, Number 1, Spring, 1970, Alfred A. Barrios, Ph.D.), various types of techniques were profiled. The percentages speak for themselves:

  • Hypnosis: 93% recovery after 6 sessions    (about 1-1/2 months)
  • Behavior Therapy: 72% after 22 sessions   (about 6 months)
  • Psychotherapy: 38% recovery after 600 sessions (about 11 1/2 years).

Appointments typically last 2 hours, with follow-up sessions lasting 1 1/2 hours.
