Hypnosis

Individual Therapy

Do you struggle with a habit, that no matter how hard you try you just can’t seem to brake it? Hypnosis may be the answer. East Coast Mental Wellness offers Hypnosis for almost any issue that you may be struggling with, such as anxiety, depression, smoking, weight loss, fear of flying and fear of public speaking. Hypnosis at East Coast Mental Wellness isn’t like what you may have seen on T.V. or the Movies. You are actually working with a licensed therapist who is also a certified hypnotist. Several insurance companies cover hypnotherapy sessions, because they know that it can be a useful form of treatment.

What does hypnosis feel like?

Clients can experience hypnosis differently. Some people find that they become extremely aware of the sounds around them, while others drift away with their thoughts and don’t even hear the therapist after some time. Some experience feelings of heaviness, tingling sensations or loose limbs, while others may feel light as if they are floating in the room. Each experience is unique.

Who can benefit from hypnotherapy?

Most people can benefit from hypnosis. There are only two categories of people that may not be able to be hypnotized. Individuals with an IQ less than 70 and people that suffer from delusions, hallucinations and other psychotic symptoms. If you do not fall into these two categories, then you are most likely able to be hypnotized. Your therapists will be able to test you before you start a hypnosis session.

How many sessions does it take to break my habit or resolve my issue?

Different issues may take a different amount of sessions. You will need at least two sessions. The first session is to get some background on your concerns and to get you used to the hypnosis process. The following sessions are more hypnosis. Some people find that they need “booster” session a few months after the initial hypnosis just to make sure habit don’t reemerge.

What else should I know?

Your sessions will be recorded as an MP3 so that you can listen to the sessions at home. The more you listen to the recordings, the better the treatment will be. Sometimes you will be asked to do some homework in between session to make sure you are creating better thought patterns around your habit or issues.
