HOW IT WORKS

Hypnotic Sessions 

Despite common misconceptions, the best hypnotists and hypnotherapists in the world have always worked with their clients over multiple sessions. We strongly discourage anyone seeking professional hypnotic help to steer clear of any individuals making excessive claims or promising ‘single session success’. For maximum effectiveness and safety, hypnotic work should be conducted in-person by a professional and should be carefully tailored to the needs of each and every individual. This takes time, proper consideration, and expertise.

Our general protocol is to ensure success by building your strength over multiple sessions. We begin with a session that includes an assessment of basic hypnotizability, deep trance induction, ego strengthening, and future-pacing. During this first, ‘real’ session, we will assess what hypnotic approaches you are most responsive to, as well as what methods are least likely to be successful. We will also be implanting powerful suggestions for your ongoing success, as well as ensuring that you experience the deepest, most enjoyable hypnotic session possible.

During subsequent sessions, we will go even deeper into resolving any internal obstacles to your success, as well as reinforce your connection with the achievement of your goals. With each session, the work becomes more and more finely-tuned to your specific goals and needs.

Lastly, depending upon your particular case and the chosen protocol, you may be taught extremely powerful methods of self-hypnosis so that you can continue to build on the success of your sessions long after they are over.

Hypnotic Recordings

Depending on individual client needs, we occasionally offer supplemental hypnotic audio recordings, available for download via email. These recordings are intended to reinforce the work accomplished during live sessions and are provided absolutely free-of-charge.

Fees

Hypnotherapy should be considered a specialty service for those who are serious about investing in lasting change. Our fee schedule is reflective of our experience, professional standing, and expertise. In general, we charge about the same as many of our competitors and our fees are reflective of current going rates for hypnotherapy in southern California. However, we also realize that our clients come from a variety of economic backgrounds. 

During your free consultation, we will discuss your goals and lay out a potential treatment plan with a prescribed number of sessions, as well as total fees. Although we charge according to a standard schedule, we will also generally work with you to ensure your treatment plan is within your budget and something you can afford.     

 

Payment Options

The most convenient way to pay for our services is either through credit or debit card. We will also take payment in the form of cash or checks drawn from local banks. 

Insurance

Please note that less than 10% of insurance companies currently cover hypnotic services. However, if you have insurance through your employer or another organization and it does not cover hypnotherapy services directly, you may still be eligible for an employer-sponsored reimbursement. This typically involves presenting an official receipt from our office, which we are happy to provide. Please check with your employer's human resources department to see if you are eligible for this type of reimbursement.

Hours of Operation

Individual sessions are by appointment only, however we usually see clients during weekdays and evenings between 11:00 am and 9:00 pm. We are typically closed on Sunday.

For any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact our offices directly at:  (800) 284-2798

To ensure our clients receive the very best hypnotic services possible, we closely follow the guidelines laid out by the National Guild of Hypnotists, the oldest, largest, and most respected organization for professional hypnotists in the world.

Initial Consultation & Intake

We begin with a FREE, no-obligation comprehensive intake session. During this first meeting, which usually lasts about an hour, we will gather all pertinent information regarding your particular challenges and goals. We will discuss with you how hypnosis works and what you can expect from your hypnotic sessions, as well as tips to ensure your maximum success and comfort. Assuming all parties recognize a ‘good fit’, we will then schedule your first hypnotic session. To schedule your own initial consultation now, simply click here.
