These sessions can be very profound so preparation is essential to get the most out of them. The best way to prepare for a session is to consider your biggest challenges that are seriously affecting the quality of your life now, whether its panic attacks, anxiety, anger, health issues, relationships, fears, phobias, sadness or if you have experienced bullying, abuse, low self worth, not feeling good enough, grief from loss of loved ones, trauma or abandonment. Then maintain an open mind.


Come with an open mind

Although during the interview portion we will make a list of items you want to address, the most successful sessions are those with no expectations. Your subconscious will be navigating the session and will ultimately determine what it is that YOU need to work on.

Relax and/or meditate

It is important that you do your best to relax and keep a calm mind the night before, and the day of your session. I highly recommend meditating or doing any activity that helps you relax such as reading.

Do not drink alcohol or caffeine

In order to make sure your mind is clear and relaxed, please do not drink any alcohol the night before or the day of your session. Additionally, do not drink any coffee/caffeine the day of your session as it may affect the quality of your session. If you drink multiple cups of coffee per day, I recommend limiting yourself to as few cups as possible.

Eat prior to your session

Most sessions last about 3 hours. Please plan accordingly and eat light prior to your session. You may also want to dress comfortably.

Online sessions

If you are getting ready for an online session, please make sure you have no distractions in the room (such as pets). You will need a computer with webcam as well as headphones, make sure both work the day before your session. A phone with a camera will not suffice.

You will be given a copy of your recorded session

Your session will be video and/or audio recorded. You may remember some, all, or none of your session while you were hypnotized so a recording will be provided to you. Having a recording is a critical part of the process as the more you hear yourself, the more easily the changes can stick. If you have your own recording device, please feel free to bring it.

Your session is private

Although spouses/partners/friends may want to be with you to witness this amazing event, your session is a safe place and your confidentiality is of utmost importance to me. For this reason, I cannot allow other to be present during your session; however, you may share your recording or any memories or thoughts at your discretion.
