I have structured my fees to meet the needs of everyone I can think of. If you have a suggestion let me know.
I can't take insurance. Doctors, Pyschaiatrists, Psycologists, Counselors; if you are one of these four groups you can accept insurance and a small percentage use hypnosis with patients. It makes no sense for insurance companies to not work with specialists -- the hypnotherapists, but that's how it is.
That said, I charge very fairly recognizing that most of us live within budgets. A therapist I see now and then charges $150 for 55 minutes.
I am partially retired and am only taking clients that are already clients or who I sense are genuinely interested in making change.
I schedule my time so sessions can have up to three hours to hear you speak of those things you see or feel as problems or issues in your life. I have a process consisting sometimes of specific questions or of simply allowing the conversation to free associate. Toward the end of the first session you experience a hypnotic trance and suggestions to help with the issue or problem needing change. I can help with most things and I do most adamatly know the mind is the builder.
And though problems originate in the mind, some problems cannot be solved as of yet using the mind. An example of such a problem would be a broken arm. You may have made a choice that broke your arm, but you are going to need a doctor to set your broken bones.
I prefer to spend as much time with you as you find helpful. That means when you schedule a 10 am appointment I block out three hours on my calendar. Unless you tell me you want a one or two hour appointment, you have three hours available. The time goes by quickly. Because I only schedule one person a day if you decide to miss an appointment and don't give me adequet notice I may decide not to see you in the future.
The Stop smoking program is three sessions, as close together as is reasonable to accomodate our schedules. I was a smoker I understand the mental and physical addiction and I respect anyone's decision to smoke -- after all it is their body to do with as they please.
