Frequently Asked Questions

Here are answers to some of the most common questions clients ask about hypnotherapy and The Ultimate HypnoSlim Program.

Q How do I know hypnosis will work for me?
If you have a attitude and open your mind to hypnosis as a way to help achieve your weight loss goal, there is no reason to expect anything less than success. Hypnotherapy is effective at helping to change habits, manage psychological problems, and manage stress.

Q: How do I know if I can be hypnotized?
Almost everyone can be hypnotized. There are only three exceptions. People who are psychotic or experiencing some type of thought disorder and those with a severely low IQ cannot be hypnotized. Plus anyone who does not want to be hypnotized cannot be hypnotized against their will.

Q: What does hypnosis feel like?
Being hypnotized feels like a pleasant state of deep relaxation. You enter a place where you feel awake, but not completely awake. It is similar to the feeling you have when you are just falling asleep or right as you wake up in the morning, when you are still partially aware of what is happening around you but you are not completely awake. Many people experience deep relaxation when they are hypnotized.

Q: How will I know I've been hypnotized?
The easiest way to tell that you have been hypnotized is acknowledging an improved state of well-being after listening to your hypnosis session or recording. Remember, you are not unconscious or asleep during hypnosis so you are likely to remember parts of your experience, but you generally won’t remember everything as if you had been awake.

Some people do not even realize they were in a hypnotic trance at all. This doesn’t mean you were not hypnotized. Since hypnosis is a normal state for your brain to be in, you won’t often experience significant shifts or differences in awareness. After a session ask yourself “How long did that take?” More often than not you will feel as if the whole hypnosis session has only taken around 25 minutes when in fact the session goes from 40 – 50 minutes. This is a sure sign you were in a deep state of hypnotic relaxation.

Q: Are self hypnosis recordings really as effective as hypnotherapy with a real live person?
Absolutely Yes! While the experiences are different, those differences do not impact the effectiveness of each approach. Remember, hypnosis deals in the power of suggestion and hearing a suggestion repeatedly helps it penetrate more deeply and stick better. This is why listening to hypnosis recordings is just as effective as in-person individual sessions.

Q. I have had gastric band surgery will Hypnoslim still work for me?
Yes, a lot of people who have had gastric band surgery get amazing results from the program. Surgery doesn’t address issues relating to healthy eating, emotional hunger and exercise motivation. The Ultimate HypnoSlim Program does.

Q. I only have small amount of weight to lose can I still do the program?
Yes, no matter how much or how little weight you wish to lose, Hypnoslim is equally as effective. There is no minimum BMI since there are zero side effects, even with our gastric band hypnosis program.

Q. What if I have a phobia of hospitals?
I do make suggestions that you will feel safe and secure, calm and relaxed throughout the gastric band hypnosis session. However, if you have a severe phobia of hospitals or simply don’t like the idea of surgery even in your mind, then you can skip the gastric band session and move onto adjusting the band. This session has the same suggestions for decreasing your appetite and shrinking your stomach, without mentioning hospitals.

Q. Why do I hear your voice?
You will hear the sound of my voice and you will remember what I say. After all you are not asleep you are in a deeply relaxed hypnotic trance. You need to be able to hear my suggestions in order for change to take place. You will probably not remember everything I say but you will hear it.

Q. I am doing Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Atkins etc. Will this still work for me?
Some of my clients find following a specific eating plan works for them. This is about finding what works for you. My only suggestions is that you ‘Eat to Energize’ choosing fresh, healthy food. Anything else is entirely up to you.

Q. I fell asleep while listening to Hypnoslim, will it still work?
Many self-hypnosis programs naturally result in sleep due to the deep relaxation that is taking place. This is perfectly normal and the program will still work to its fullest extent.

Q. I’m on medications, is the program okay for me?
Yes that is fine. As long they are not mind altering medications or medications for bipolar or personality disorder then it is fine to use HypnoSlim while on other medications. If you are unsure, consult your health care professional before starting your HypnoSlim program.

Q. Who should not be hypnotized?
People with a diagnosed mental disorder should not be hypnotized, especially if they are not being treated, this includes psychotics and schizophrenics. It's not a good idea for these mental illnesses to be exposed to hypnosis. People with schizophrenia should consult with their health care professional before starting HypnoSlim program.

Q "How long does it take to work, before I notice a change?"
This is one of the most common questions I receive – and it’s a good one. Hypnosis bypasses your logical “thinking” brain and goes right to your “feeling” brain? Your “feeling” brain, also known as the subconscious, doesn’t rationalize or quantify things like your logical, thinking, “waking” mind does. In the entertainment example, if I told your subconscious mind to “bock like a chicken”, it wouldn’t stop and think, “wait a minute! I’m not a chicken, this is crazy!” It would likely start clucking. But I’m not going to do that. Instead, I’m going to give you positive affirmations that will heal your relationship with food and help you lose weight steadily, naturally and healthily.

That means you could start seeing results from your very first session!
