Frequently Asked Questions
What Does Hypnosis Feel Like?
You feel a deep sense of relaxation. It also feels a like a dream, but you are not sleeping. You are still awake enough to make your own choices about what you want during the session. Your practitioner cannot make you do anything that you do not want to do. You still have the ability to edit what you say. Throughout the session, you can hear and respond to your practitioner. In deep states of hypnosis, your practitioner's voice will feel further away or distant.
Can Anybody Be Hypnotized?
When you call to book your first appointment, Cynthia will ask you questions to make a preliminary assessment as to whether you sound like a good candidate for hypnosis. The vast majority of people can be hypnotized. Positive change can happen even at light trance state. Others can go into a deeper level of trance called the Somnambulistic (Théta) state. Check with your doctor if hypnosis is recommended for you.
What Factors Will Help Me To Be Hypnotized?
There are several factors that can make a difference in your session. Ideally, you should keep caffeine to a minimum or do not drink caffeine products at all the morning of your appointment. Do not eat sugar or eat a heavy meal the day of the session. When you arrive at the session, it is important that you relax and not try to analyze the session while it is happening. There is time enough to critique the session after it is over. During the session you need to suspend disbelief and allow the right side of your brain to access another level of consciousness. In this regard, remember that Albert Einstein once said that imagination is more important than knowledge. If you really want to maximize the potential for positive change, there needs to be a willingness to let go of anger and fear. In order to let go of anger, you need to be willing to forgive.
Will I Remember Anything?
Some people remember everything and others forget it like a dream. During the debriefing, most people can still remember what just happened to discuss it. When the debriefing time is over, you will already have begun to forget experiences that happened in the deep state of trance. However, the experience is still present with your Subconscious/Higher Self.
Can I Record The Session?
No due to Copyright laws. However, Cynthia will provide you with an audio recording that you can listen to ideally before bedtime. Do not listen to the recording while driving or doing anything that requires alertness, because it may put you back into a trance.
Can I Bring A Friend?
Yes and No. The session is most often preferred to be done privately one-on-one. Usually, things are said that a person would not want a friend or partner to hear. An exception to this is if a confidential translator is used to assist with a session for non-English speaking clients.
Do You Give Sessions For People Who Are Not Fluent In English?
Ask about the Out-of-Towner Package when you have your consultation.
Do You Do Distance Sessions With Electronic Media?
Rapid Transformational Therapy may be done through electronic media. Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique is a much longer session and is only done in person.
What Happens During The Interview Part Of The Session?
Your questions are clarified and concerns addressed. An intake form may be discussed. Cynthia wants to have a good understanding of why you want a session and what is the outcome you want.
Length Of Time For A Session?
Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) is done in 90 minutes for adults and in a shorter, appropriate time for children. An issue is usually resolved in one to three RTT sessions depending upon the issue (e.g. bulimia and anorexia take three sessions). Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique (QHHT) is done when it is done, which means time varies from person to person. Most often a QHHT session takes about four hours. QHHT is only done with adults. Regardless of which type of service that you choose, it is recommended that you do not book anything for directly after the session in case it goes overtime. RTT can sometimes spill over into two hours depending on what has happened. A flat rate is charged for the sessions so that you do not have to worry about being charged for extra time.
