Frequently Asked Questions


What is Hypnotherapy?

As a facilitator of self-discovery and positive change, Lori uses hypnotherapy to help others alter their undesired behaviors and habits. Hypnosis involves selectively focusing and narrowing perception, which results in a "trance" or altered state of consciousness. In this trance, behavior modification can readily occur. When your conscious mind is at rest, your more accepting subconscious mind can easily record new desired beliefs and behaviors into your memory. This process can be a key in creating positive change.

As a Certified Practitioner, Lori competently guides this transformation. There is no surrender or mind control. While anyone who wants to be hypnotized can be, no one can be induced to do or say anything which conflicts with their individual standards of behavior or personal integrity. Thus, with participation, change can be inspired and realized.

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation in which the subconscious mind is considerably more receptive to positive thoughts and suggestions. Through hypnosis, your behavior can be modified to benefit you by replacing the old beliefs or behaviors that you no longer need or want with the new ones you desire. Each of us naturally enters hypnosis several times every day while watching TV, when overwhelmed by the beauty of nature, or a new romance, or even while driving long distances.

Why Choose Hypnotherapy?

It’s simple and it works ☺ By harnessing the power of your own subconscious mind, Hypnotherapy is often quick and effective in resolving personal issues and improving focus and performance, whether at work or play. With hypnotherapy, you can effectively replace limiting behaviors with attitudes and actions that promote growth and success. Hypnotherapy helps you focus, direct and maximize your own inner power.

Can I Be Hypnotized?

Yes. Everyone has the ability to be hypnotized.

What is a Hypnotic Experience Like?

Hypnosis is a natural state of profound physical and mental relaxation that is both refreshing and revitalizing. In hypnosis, you are not asleep. In fact, most people report an energizing experience of intense concentration and awareness.

What Happens if I don’t Come Out of Hypnosis?

It is impossible to be stuck in the state of hypnosis. All trances end, whether formally ended by the Hypnotherapist or ended naturally by you.

In Hypnosis, Will I Do Anything I Don’t Want to Do or Say Anything I Don’t Want to Say?

You cannot and will not ever be compelled to do or say anything under hypnosis that is in conflict with your personal, ethical standards and/or desires. As your Hypnotherapist, it is my foremost intention to assist you in achieving your therapeutic goals.
