A: Hypnosis is a state of relaxation and/or a level of concentration that the average
individual reaches daily. Self-
A: No. Hypnosis cannot detach the ego. As a general rule, if a client were given a suggestion he or she did not agree with, he or she would simply refuse, laugh at it, or awaken from hypnosis. In stage hypnosis, the volunteers are usually under the influence of alcohol and have come to the show for the purpose of relaxing, acting silly, and having a good time. Therefore, they are easily encouraged to do so. Because inhibitions are often reduced under hypnosis, the subject is more likely to experience his or her inner character traits and motivations. Yet, if an individual deems these inner character traits inappropriate, they do not reveal them. Beliefs and values continue to stay intact during any act that is influenced with hypnosis.
A: No. If an individual undergoing hypnosis wants to remember what happened under
hypnosis, or have memories from the past, he or she will. In some cases, if the
client wants to forget something, amnesia can be produced with a post-
A: Yes, provided an individual has normal physiological and psychological functioning and therefore the ability to concentrate and relax. As long as a normal human being is willing, he or she may undergo hypnosis. Insusceptible people are simply not willing. There is a positive correlation between a person’s willingness to relax and concentrate and the ability to undergo hypnosis.

Q: What should I do in preparation for my session?
A: Please refrain from using caffeine during the 6 hours prior to your session. This allows easier entrance into hypnosis. Wearing comfortable, unrestrictive clothing may help you to feel more relaxed.
A: That depends on what you’ll be working on. When the goal is regression, most clients are very happy with one regression session. When the goal is to change a habit, the standard protocol involves 3 sessions of hypnotherapy along with daily affirmations and audio reinforcement. For example – A client that wants to let go of weight would come for an initial hypnotherapy session, and then at home, listen to a reinforcement audio CD for the next 6 days. The client would come for a second session that includes any adjustments needed in the suggestions, and again listen to an updated reinforcement audio CD for the next 6 days. The client would come for a third session wrapping up any loose ends and again making any adjustments needed in the suggestions. The client would continue to listen to the next updated CD for at least 6 more days. It’s scientifically proven that when you make a change that lasts for 21 days, it becomes habit. We’re making a new – healthier set of habits allowing the client to let go of weight.

For health reasons, I must lose weight. I began the “Letting Go of Weight” hypnosis
session at 5’4”, weighing 203 pounds -
