Will I be asleep during my session?
Absolutely not. If you were asleep you would just dream away and would never benefit from your session. Stage hypnotists use the word “sleep” because it is easily understood, but in clinical hypnosis that is not a word we usually use since you will never be asleep.
Will I be aware?
Hypnosis is actually a state of heightened awareness. You will always know where you are, you will always know who you are with, and you will always have all faculties about you. I will be teaching you hypnotic methods, and you will practice these techniques and I will give you feedback.
What does hypnosis feel like?
In my office I often use relaxation techniques and mindfulness meditation training. You will feel comfortable and relaxed, yet quite aware. It feels a lot like the experience you have when you are focusing on something you really enjoy and have pushed aside the distractions of the day. Call Richard today at (702) 488-9640 and schedule your first session or ask any questions.
Do I have to come every week, over and over again?
Hypnosis is not something I do to you, it is something I do with you and teach you. My goal is for you to succeed with the skills you learn, so that you can apply them all day every day without being in my office. Autonomy is a central goal, and I usually see people for 3-6 sessions on average. I want you to live hypnotically! You will be learning self-hypnosis so that you can take the learnings of our sessions into your real world.
Can I bring a friend?
Actually you can, if that person is supportive of you goals and you chose to permit them. Sometimes couples and friends share the same goals, in which case I can also do the session with you and your partner or friend (a couples or friend discount can be applied for two or more). Clinical hypnosis Las Vegas can also be done in small groups for corporate wellness and other purposes.
What is a CPH?
This stands for Certified Professional Hypnotist. I am a certified professional hypnotist certified by both the ICBCH and the IMDHA.
What is a CCE-BCC?
I am certified by the Center for Credentialing and Education as a Board Certified Coach. Clinical hypnosis Las Vegas provides coaching and training in auto-hypnosis and mindfulness based problem solving, goal setting and personal empowerment and achievement.
Are you a medical doctor or psychologist?
No. My clients are trying to better their lives and are not usually diagnosed with psychological disorders and do not need a psychologist. Although I do work with medical doctors to provide the benefits of auto-hypnosis to clients with medical conditions, I do not provide medical treatment, your doctor will provide medications and procedures for the treatment of those conditions. I am a Certified Professional Hypnotist, and a Board Certified Life Coach. I am a university professor and an educator. My master’s degree is in counseling (although I do not offer psychotherapy or counseling) and my doctorate is in cultural transformation. If you need medical care or psychological care I will refer you to a provider of those services. Call me today at (702) 488-9640 and schedule your first session or ask any questions.
