Costs, Number of Sessions

How many sessions are required? 

That is hard to know since it is different for different people and for different types of problems.  For some things like smoking cessation, there is a 6-session plan that often works, but will take longer for some people depending on a number of factors. Weight loss probably takes the longest time, but it depends upon how much weight the client would like to lose, and lifestyle issues, stress issues, etc.  However there are some things such as fears, which can sometimes be eliminated or greatly lessened in just 2 or 3 sessions in some cases. 

So there is no definitive, concrete answer.  It really depends upon the person and the problem at hand. 

How much does it cost?

The initial phone consultation and the first Zoom session are both offered at no cost.  This allows you to try it and see how it works and what is involved. After that, the fee per session is $99 or 6 sessions for $495 paid by Paypal.  Most sessions are 1 hour, but if it takes longer than an hour, there is no extra charge. The fee is based on the session not the time.  Also, there is no schedule of different fees for different types of problems and therapies. The fee is for the session.  The session can be used to work on whatever issues need work.

Is it covered by health insurance?

Not usually.  Unfortunately, most health insurance companies have not yet started covering hypnotherapy-related services.  Check with your insurance provider to see if they will reimburse you for hypnotherapy sessions.

How long does it last? Will it wear off?

Again, this depends on a number of factors, but mostly it depends upon how deeply ingrained your emotional impulses are on the subject at hand in your subconscious.  The general idea is to add new suggestions that overshadow the old associations.  If the old ones are deeply entrenched, it might take a lot more new suggestions to outweigh the old.  The new associations do not wear out, but if the client continues to expose themselves to the sources of the old associations, that will work against the therapy, and begin to outnumber the therapeutic suggestions.  So it's a good idea to keep doing new sessions until the new suggestions are firmly embedded, and then try to avoid the old triggers and old sources of ideas that you are trying to avoid.
