1.- What is Hypnosis Coaching? It is a way of communicating with the subconscious mind in order to achieve a desired outcome. A hypnosis coach facilitates an interaction to one's subconscious by relaxing the mind until it is open to receive such message that will bring the results desired at a deeper level. It is possible to reach an alternate state of consciousness defined by the brain waves reaching an Alpha or Theta state. This is a state reached naturally by every day activities such as watching TV, reading a book, praying, meditating, or even auto-piloting to work.

2.- If I'm hypnotized do I give up control? Will I cluck like a chicken? No. Stage hypnosis unfortunately offers many misconceptions regarding hypnosis coaching. You are in control at all times. Stage hypnosis puts people to “sleep” and makes them do funny things for the sake of entertainment but is widely different than hypnosis coaching. You comfortably recline in a chair and follow the words the practitioner says. You are able to move and your conscious mind is aware of what is being said and ultimately decides what your subconscious mind accepts or rejects. Think of it in terms of watching a movie. Have you ever been so wrapped up by the movie that you are almost in a trance state? You are in control of how immersed in the film you get and you have the power to resist this state as well. Hypnosis Coaching is very similar to that. You are in control of what you let in your mind and what you reject, thus making any changes that much more empowering.

3.- How does hypnosis feel? Hypnosis is a natural state of mind and the experience varies for each person. Most experience a deep relaxation and feel a state of mind like when you are about to fall asleep where you're somewhere in between awake and asleep. Many people describe the experience as a dream where the Hypnosis Coach's voice drifts in and out of consciousness, depending on how wrapped up in the story (much like watching a movie) you allow yourself to be. You are able to move if you wish although most do not as they enjoy a sense of weightlessness or heaviness as all your muscles relax.

4.- What will happen in a Hypnosis Coaching Session? The Hypnosis Coach will discuss with you what it is you are desiring in your life and will then outline with you what that journey would look like and the best path to take. The Hypnosis Coach will then use several techniques to aide you in removing blocks and obstacles as you move towards your goal. Often the change is subtle as it comes from the subconscious mind. Most simply feel very relaxed and refreshed and the subtle changes become noticeable within a few days and weeks.
