How do I know hypnosis is going to work?
Hypnosis is a scientifically proven tool that has been used for thousands of years. The question is not whether or not hypnosis works. There is no question about that. Rather, the question is whether or not hypnosis will help you. There are three factors that determine whether or not hypnosis will help you.
- Do you take full responsibility for your life, and your results in life?
- Do you know what you want?
- Do you recognize that, in order to get what you want, you are going to have to make changes? And are you ready to make those changes?
- Are you willing to do the work on your own and be accountable for your actions?
- Are you willing to fully commit to this process?
If you answered “yes” all of these questions, hypnosis will help you. If not, it’s probably better to save your money. If you do fit this criteria, you will do very well with our system.
What if it doesn’t work?
We have never had a client that fully participated in the program and did not get results! Because we only work with clients who do the work, you can be sure that you will achieve positive change with this program. We are so certain you will achieve excellent results that we back it with a guarantee.
If you attend all sessions, do all the listening and other assignments, and you’re still not satisfied with the experience, you’ll get a full refund, no questions asked!
How long are the sessions?
Typically the sessions average about one and a half hours. The first session is longer and averages about two hours in length. No need to worry about the time. Unlike some hypnotists, we don’t charge by the hour. Some sessions exceed 2 hours and you always pay the same overall price for the package.
How often are the sessions?
Typically the sessions are every other week in the six session package. After completing your 6 session package, you have a choice. If you want to do further sessions on a new goal at a discounted price, you can come in as frequently or infrequently as you desire.
What can hypnosis help me with?
Hypnosis can help with almost anything. However, anything involving mental health such as depression, anxiety disorder diagnosed by a doctor, addictions, personality disorders, and similar problems need to be addressed by a licensed mental health worker.
Some hypnosis professionals, who are not mental health workers, advertise these types of services. Not only are they taking a legal risk in doing so, they are not qualified to help you. Buyer beware!
How will I really know I’m in hypnosis?
You will know you are in hypnosis when you “respond” to the suggestions. We will set up various tests to assess whether or not you’ve attained the state. When you respond positively to these tests, you can be assured that you’re in hypnosis. When you realize that you’re in hypnosis, it increases the depth and effectiveness of the state. There are many styles of hypnotic induction. We will determine the best one for you, and coach you on having the best experience possible. Most other hypnotists use the same induction for everyone and don’t even test to see if the client is really in hypnosis.
Why should I hire you instead of any of the other hypnosis people Dallas?
Quite simply, because we have superior training. Most hypnotists have only 100 hours of training. Will and I both attended multi-year trainings that are considered to be the best in the country. The second reason you should work with us is our customized approach. All of our protocols are designed to your unique needs. We don’t use scripts and other cookie-cutter solutions. We offer the professional-grade personalized hypnosis recordings. Finally, we hold you accountable for doing the things that you say you’re going to do. Therefore, if you complete our program, you will certainly have made significant progress.
Will I tell you all my private secrets?
Only if you want to. Seriously, hypnosis does not make you tell us all your secrets, as commonly thought. Anything you’re not going to tell us in your normal state, you also won’t tell us in hypnosis.
Can I quit smoking in one session?
Can you build a ripped, muscular body in just one workout? Can you learn ballroom dancing in just one class? Can you lose weight by eating one healthy meal? Do you catch my drift?
Anyone that says otherwise is most likely using a tool called Aversion Therapy, which is dangerous for both parties..
See the question “Can you hypnotize me to make me think that pizza is made of bugs so I don’t eat it?”.
Can I hypnotize myself to get my ex husband to pay child support?
Yes, but that’s called voodoo. We don’t do voodoo in our office, although clients do request it on occasion. We can’t hypnotise you to work on any other person. Hypnosis will only help you help yourself. It can’t be used to make you or any other person do, or not do something.
Can you hypnotize me to make me think that pizza is made of bugs so I don’t eat it?
As much as we love the taste of bug-laden pizza, no, we won’t. Doing so is called aversion therapy. People have been sued over using such methods. There’s always a positive intent behind your food choices. Giving you an aversion to a certain food without addressing the positive intent, will probably make the problem worse. It could lead to harder addictions or other ways of negatively filling the emotional need.
How many sessions does it to cure me?
Exactly 3.47. Seriously, as hypnosis professionals, we don’t cure or fix. Instead, we empower you to use your innate talents and resources in such a way that motivates you to achieve your goals. How long will that take? It depends on so many factors that space prohibits going into further. Our program is 6 sessions long. After completing the program, you can choose to do follow-up sessions at a reduced cost, if needed.
How much does it cost?
We are certainly not the cheapest in town, nor are we the most expensive. You definitely don’t want to go cheap when hiring a hypnosis professional. You want someone with the credentials, experience, and qualifications to help you. Our prices reflect the quality of our services and the results our clients typically achieve.
Are you guys certified or something?
We are certified and insured to the highest standards in the industry. We are also HIPAA compliant which is a must if you are dealing with any hypnotist and want your personal data protected.
What’s in it for me?
Would you like to have more relaxation, positive motivation towards your goal, and higher self esteem?
Good. We create suggestions to reinforce your specific goal at the subconscious level and make a custom recording for you. Hypnosis helps install positive patterns of thought, but that alone won’t get you to your goal. Once you start taking your weekly action step, emotional/ mental blocks will come up preventing you from achieving your goal. We help you clear those negative patterns through proven processes. After all, you still have to take out the trash.
What is NLP?
Neuro-linguistic Programming is the study of the effect of language (both verbal and non-verbal) on the human nervous system. My certifying body, the Society of NLP explains it as “The Study of the Structure of Subjective Experience and what can be calculated from it.” All experience is subjective if you think about it.
Your ability to do anything boils down to your communication within your own mind and with other people.
We use this body of knowledge to help people resolve negative past experiences, reinforce positive ones, and overall make our hypnosis work more effective.

Would I be OK to drive after my session?
Yes you can. We return you to your fully alert state gently and smoothly. You will be a lot more relaxed because your nervous system has been calmed.
Where is the scientific proof hypnosis works?
My hypnosis certification is through the International Board of Hypnotherapy. The IBH requires 3 times the national average in hypnosis training and it is all hands on. This board is also at the forefront of scientific research in the effectiveness of hypnosis.
Tim Simmerman Sierra, my teacher and mentor runs the Hypnotherapy Academy of America.
Tim and Dr. Robert Sapien, M.D. have worked with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to conduct various research studies on the effectiveness of hypnosis, as taught at the academy. This type of hypnosis is called Integral Hypnotherapy, a client-centric approach. This means there are no scripts or stock recordings. All the material is customized for you, the client.
One study in particular that is worth mentioning is one where behavioral therapy was compared objectively to Integral Hypnotherapy. Study—-http://hypnotherapyacademy.com/learn-evidence-based-methods/
“Conclusion: both groups showed improvement with treatment; however, the hypnotherapy group showed significantly higher scores in the effective relief of symptoms and improvement in quality of life, than the behavior therapy group.
The hypnotherapy group had an overall improvement of 67% (in only three sessions), while the behavioral therapy group only 42% improvement.”
Do you work with children?
Yes but the minimum age is 5. The age of 11 or older seems to be ideal due maturity, etc. We have seen that working with both the parent and the child increases positive results many times over. We only work with a child if the parents also commit to sessions. Why is this?
Children express what the parents are repressing. Children don’t come up with these behaviors out of thin air.
If a parent commits to sessions at full price, we offer the child’s sessions at a significantly reduced rate.
Wouldn’t it be better to do hypnosis with my therapist?
That would seem to be logical, but it is counter intuitive. Why is this? Because the majority of therapists have extensive training in psychotherapy and cognitive behavioral therapy, not hypnosis. A licensed therapist that decides to start doing hypnosis can get a hypnosis certification with only 60 hours of training in most states (much less than the minimum for non-therapists).
That means that many (not all) therapists have years of non-hypnosis training and less than 2 weeks of hypnosis training (if any). Some of them have a lot more than this and are really skilled in hypnosis, but this is not the whole of therapists.
My cousin told me he saw a hypnosis show in Vegas where the hypnotist made someone cluck like a chicken. How do i know that won’t happen to me?
Strangely enough, no one has ever clucked like a chicken in our office. We cannot make you go into hypnosis or do anything you do not want to do.
Stage hypnosis and what we do is strikingly different. What we do in good hypnosis work is not about making anyone do anything and we don’t do anything for entertainment purposes.
Stage hypnosis and hypnosis in movies are strictly entertainment and have no basis in reality. We work with people and show them they have the power, not us.
We are simply guides that show you how to do all of these processes and get the most out of them.
What do you do with my information?
We are HIPAA compliant. This stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 and is designed to provide data privacy and security provisions for safeguarding medical information.
We have physical files under two locks – our office lock and file cabinet lock.
We do not store your info on our computers and when we do sessions through video conferencing, they are done through our HIPAA approved provider.
