Q: I have heard that hypnosis can be useful, but I'm afraid of being hypnotized - Help!
A: Many people imagine hypnosis as very different than it actually is. They may have seen films or TV shows showing a subject being "brainwashed" or humiliated. Clinical hypnosis is used to help you achieve your goals more quickly and is a very pleasant experience. You can bring someone into the session with you if that will help you feel more comfortable.
Q : My friend highly recommended you - do you think you can help me?
A: I honestly don't know. Your friend may connect with me as a therapist and you may not. A recommendation or referral is no guarantee that a therapist is right for you. I suggest that you interview several therapists to get a sense of who you're most comfortable with and who you feel would be most helpful.
