I recommend that you not be hungry during your session as stomach growling can hinder relaxation and concentration. I usually won’t start appointments before 9am or after 7:30 pm as sleepiness and fatigue can also hinder our ability to focus. After removing your shoes, you can sit in the recliner or on the carpet with me for the intake interview.
I answer any questions you may have about hypnosis or the intake process. I then ask you questions about your current sitution and then we talk about your goal state to develop your detailed personal script for change. I keep an eye on the time and we help each other to stay focused on getting an accurate snapshot of where you’re at and where you want to be.
For the hypnosis (i.e., relaxation) phase, you recline in the chair and do your best to achieve a state of calm, inward focus as per my suggestions. I suggest that most people use the washroom before this phase as a full bladder can really hinder relaxation. I then read aloud your detailed goal state for you to receive it as openly as you can.
I conclude by asking you to return your attention to the here and now. When you are ready, we can discuss your experience and discuss any homework that might support our work together.
Most clients feel refreshed as though they’ve had a power nap or daydream. You will have no trouble driving or doing anything else that you would usually do during your waking hours. In the following days, you may notice shifts in your perspective, emotions, and behaviours (depending on our area of concentration together). Please note any resistance to change after your session, if any.
