Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness that is akin to the state of mind a person has during meditation. While it appears the person is sleeping, in actuality, the two states of consciousness have nothing in common. Have you ever daydreamed? Lost track of where you were when traveling? These are examples of natural hypnosis. People go in and out of these natural hypnotic states every day.
Hypnosis is a very pleasant experience. It is a time to let go of the other thoughts of the day and focus on the issues you came to work on. Scientists, medical professionals and psychologists have been using hypnosis for over 200 years and no one has ever been hurt by simply going into hypnosis.
Of course you can! Virtually everyone has the ability to be hypnotized if they want it. Those with the ability to focus their concentration or who have good imaginations are often able to reach deep hypnotic states.
The hypnotist is not capable of causing a client to do anything outside of their ethical or moral beliefs. If the hypnotist makes this kind of suggestion, the client simply comes out of hypnosis or does not follow the suggestion.
It is not possible to get stuck in hypnosis. If the hypnotist stops speaking, the client either gets bored and comes out or simply falls asleep.
You begin your hypnosis session in a quiet setting. They hypnotist conducts an interview to determine your objectives and to answer any questions you have about the procedure. The hypnotist then suggests the best course of action to help you achieve your goal. The session lasts 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the agreed upon course of action. After the session, you may experience a sense of deep relaxation and overall well-being.

You will want to work with us to determine the best method of addressing these issues with your child.
