FAQ’S

How does hypnosis work?

Hypnosis is not magic – it is science! It works by creating a burst of brain waves that are the same as when you’re in REM. This allows you to access the subconscious mind. It’s very easy and anyone can do it, you’ll see for yourself when you do it too!

What is RTT®?

RTT® stands for Rapid Transformational Therapy and is a therapeutic approach that uses powerful, evidence-based techniques to provide people with the tools they need to make positive change. It was developed by renowned therapist and bestselling author, Marisa Peer, over the course of her 30-year career.

Unlike traditional hypnotherapy, RTT® does not rely solely on positive reinforcement. RTT® goes beyond this and focuses on identifying how, where, and when unhelpful beliefs and behaviors were formed. It then utilizes the leading scientific principles of neuroplasticity to enable the creation of new neural pathways in the mind.

The roots of RTT® are drawn from within areas of traditional psychotherapy such as gestalt, solution-focused and cognitive behavioral therapy, hypnotherapy, and mindfulness. Marisa explains that RTT® “…doesn’t come from a single methodology; it comes from the unique layering of techniques and beliefs that I created and now teach.”

What makes RTT® hypnosis unique?

Breakthroughs are achieved by understanding the root cause rather than just addressing the symptoms of the presenting issue. This is why RTT® has such a  significant impact; it addresses issues from the core for life-changing benefits. From there, the mind can be reprogrammed for success.

What is Medical Intuitive Technique/Therapy™?

The Medical Intuitive Technique™ (MIT™) is a method of hypnotherapy created by Skylar Acamesis, and is accredited by The International Institute of Complimentary Therapists. A medical intuitive reading does not provide a medical diagnosis, which is based on a different model of evaluation of illness. A medical intuitive reading aims for a holistic approach towards an individual to provide a better understanding of what your body is communicating through its symptoms/condition and assists with releasing any subconscious patterns to enable you to be the best version of yourself and have vibrant health.

What does hypnosis feel like?

The experience feels different for every person. Some people feel a floating sensation, some do not. Some people are sleepy; most people feel very relaxed and at ease. What’s most important is to know that how you feel isn’t an indicator of how effective it is. Regardless of what it feels like – it’s working.

How long does it take?

Each hypnosis session lasts approximately 90 min to 2 hours, hence we recommend you block a full 2 hours for hypnosis sessions.  Other energy healing and coaching sessions can last 60-90 minutes depending on the package, and modality.

Can I get stuck in hypnosis?

No! That’s an old wives tale. You have complete control the whole time. You can talk, move your body, get a tissue, and even get up and leave (I’ve had clients who have had to stop and pee before!). If our call gets disconnected, you may drift into sleep if you’re relaxed, but eventually, you’ll notice that you’re not hearing my voice and open your eyes. ​

What if I don’t “go deep” enough?

Don’t worry about how deep you go.  I want you to forget all about that.  It’s not important, and how deep you go, or don’t go does not indicate the effectiveness of the session.  Just tell yourself the truth – “This is working” and it will absolutely work.  Just know that it is effective.

What if I think I already know the reasons behind my issues?

What makes deep subconscious work amazing is that even if you think you know the reason, you see it in a COMPLETELY new way. That’s what allows you to change the meaning and ultimately, change your beliefs. For many clients, the experience is totally different than what they expected. Just relax and trust that your subconscious mind will show you exactly what you need to see. Remember what you are consciously aware of is not the same as your subconscious mind, otherwise, you would have been able to fix it already.

Am I going to fall asleep?

No, we are talking the entire time.  Hypnosis is only a sleep of the nervous system; you don’t actually go to sleep. You are fully aware of everything happening throughout the entire session.

Will I lose control, or will you control my mind?

No, in fact you cannot be taken into hypnosis against your will.  You are in charge and will have full control.  I am simply guiding and facilitating your experience.

Are sessions in-person or virtual?

All sessions are virtual using Zoom which is simple, reliable, and free. If you are within proximity to Orange County, CA, an in-person session may be an option; as is long-distance travel on a case-by-case basis.  Additional fees pay apply.  All of this can be addressed on a free Clarity Call with me.

When will I start to see change?

The short answer is it can take as few as 1-3 sessions, depending on the issues and problems you would like to be free of, as well as other factors we discuss when we talk. 

I am trained and certified in different hypnotherapy and energy healing modalities and technqiues. I use the skills, experience and intuition I possess to help my clients get the deepest, and fastest transformation they desire in thier life.

Some clients may need more sessions on a particular issue, depending on how deep it is. Most people want to keep doing sessions to work on other areas of their life and receive coaching to integrate new beliefs and build new habits and behaviors. 

There are 3 different types of changes with hypnosis, and every person is different. For some, it’s immediate, and you feel a massive shift right away, in your physiology, thoughts, and behaviors.  For others, the change is more incremental, and they experience consistent shifts every day, or over time, and then there are those for whom it is retroactive, meaning you don’t see the shifts right away and then one day you suddenly look back and see all the things that are different in your life.

How can hypnosis work after just one session?

IIn hypnosis, you can access the how, when, where, and why behind your actions, feelings, and patterns, saving you years of time in therapy. Our mind’s job is to keep us alive, so it creates beliefs for a reason, usually around events that happened in childhood (which means those beliefs are from a child’s perspective). Giving yourself access to a deeper understanding and self-compassion as I facilitate and guide you with a new perspective opens up your mind to rewire new beliefs that allow you to move forward in your life, rather than keep you stuck.

In addition to our hypnosis session, and your custom audio recording that you will listen to daily for 21-30 days, I provide mentoring and coaching support to help reinforce and integrate the new belief. 

Depending on how deeply seeded your belief is, and how much trauma was involved, you may need more than 1 session (and more than 1 month), which is why I offer custom VIP packages based on your individual needs and desires ranging from 3 to 12 months.  I know you will experience incredible change in that time.

How much does it cost?

That depends on what type of transformation you are looking for, your individual needs and budget. I strive to have something for everyone’s budget!  I recommend scheduling a free Clarity Call to see what works best for you and if we are even a good fit.  I offer individual sessions, and custom VIP packages specific to each client’s needs.  Click these links for more information:  Work with Me Page     Schedule a Clarity Call.

Can everyone be hypnotized?

Yes. As long as you’re willing for it to work.

What if I go back to moments that are painful or scary while in hypnosis?

Remember, I am the expert and trained to guide and support you.  If you go back to scenes or moments from your life that are related to things such as sexual or physical abuse, or other trauma, it’s important to remember that you are not reliving it, you are simply reviewing it and that you are safe.  I will support you and create a safe space for you to express your emotions and heal – you’ll be OK.

What is ThetaHealing®?

ThetaHealing® is a revolutionary healing modality created by Vianna Stabile.  It is a meditation training technique utilizing a spiritual philosophy for improvement of (or evolvment of) mind, body and spirit.  ThetaHealing® taps into the brain’s Theta waves to enable deep emotional and physical healing by changing our limiting beliefs. 

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that uses universal (or Source) energy. This energy supports the body’s innate healing abilities. Practitioners access this energy, allowing it to flow to the body and facilitate healing. Reiki is a gentle, noninvasive holistic energy healing system that yields powerful results for the body, mind, and spirit.

What if I only want hypnotherapy and don’t want energy healing or the other modalities you offer?

Hypnotherapy is very powerful on it’s own.  We can and will discuss what it is you are looking for, determine if we are a good fit all before you make a commitment.  If it’s a good fit, I will create a customized package to meet your needs.
