Why Should I Choose You To Be My Hypnotherapist?
I am certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists as a Certified Hypnotherapist. The certification training I underwent was designed specifically for training healthcare professionals in Clinical Hypnosis. As a healthcare professional, outside of being a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, I have a lot of additional training and knowledge; as well as a sense of professionalism and experience that lends itself very well to providing hypnotherapy services. You can trust me to maintain the utmost level of respect and compassion toward you, and to meet you where you are in your journey. I also provide each of my clients with a complimentary, personalized audio recording that they can use for self-hypnosis to reinforce their hypnotherapeutic suggestions in between sessions.
Will My Health Insurance Plan Cover Hypnotherapy?
That really depends on your particular plan. If you are interested in trying to get your services covered, I will provide you with a Superbill that you can submit to your insurance company. Depending on the services they cover, there is a possibility they may reimburse you for part or all of the hypnotherapy services you received.
Can I Pay for Hypnotherapy With My FSA or HSA?
Hypnotherapy services are typically covered by flexible spending accounts (FSA) and health savings accounts (HSA) if the hypnotherapy services are recommended / ordered by a licensed healthcare provider. An example of how this would work:
You want to stop smoking, and are interested in using Hypnotherapy to help you achieve this. You request for your primary care provider to write a letter recommending hypnotherapy for smoking cessation. We will provide you with an itemized invoice for the hypnotherapy services you receive. You can then submit the invoice and recommendation letter to the company that manages your FSA/HSA, and get reimbursed for the cost of the Hypnotherapy. However, you should always check with your plan first to double check what they require to provide reimbursement.
Do You Provide Hypnotherapy To Children?
We provide hypnotherapy services to clients across the entire lifespan, including kids. Children are a pleasure to work with! Almost every child is already in a constant state of hypnotic suggestibility; so providing them with the right hypnotherapeutic suggestions can be very effective!
Will My Sessions Be In Person or Virtual?
Whichever you prefer! If you would like to meet in person, we have an office in the Franklinton neighborhood of Columbus, OH. If you would like to meet virtually via video chat, we can arrange video hypnotherapy sessions as well. Hypnosis sessions conducted virtually are actually very effective! Sometimes being in the comfort of your own home lends itself very well to creating an ideal environment for hypnotherapy.
How Long Does A Hypnotherapy Session Take?
A typical Hypnotherapy session lasts around 60 to 75 minutes.
What Happens During An Initial Session
We will meet each other. We will discuss the hypnotherapeutic process, and I will answer any questions or concerns you may have. We will discuss your goals for hypnotherapy. We will do a few exercises to identify techniques and imagery I can utilize during your hypnosis to make it as effective as possible. I will then do an induction to put you into hypnosis. When you are in a hypnotic state, I will introduce imagery, hypnotherapeutic suggestions, and other techniques to help you address your issues and make positive changes in your life, health, and behaviors. Afterward, I will slowly emerge you from hypnosis, once again incorporating language and techniques that will reinforce the changes you have decided to make. We will then debrief and talk about your experience. Later, I will make and send you a personalized audio recording that will help reinforce the hypnotherapeutic suggestions in between our sessions that you can listen to as often as you want/need to.
What Happens During Subsequent Sessions
Subsequent visits are very much like initial visits (see above). We will discuss how the hypnotherapy has been working in your life. I will formulate ways to incorporate even more imagery, suggestions, and techniques to help you reach your goals. You will spend even more time in a state of hypnosis, and are often able to get into deeper, more effective levels of hypnosis with each session.
