FAQ

What insurance do you accept?

Unfortunately we cannot accept insurance. Hypnosis and hypnotherapy are not licensed professions in New York state, so while some plans do cover hypnotherapy, this is only for states in which it can be billed. Some places offer hypnosis as an adjunct to traditional behavior therapies and that therapy can be billed to insurance companies but there are no minimum education or experience requirements for the hypnosis element of the treatment At JQ Hypnosis we believe that hypnosis is an extremely powerful healing tool in its own right, that requires years of graduate study and hundreds of hours of clinical supervision, as is required in many other parts of the world. It is an investment to pay out of pocket but as hypnosis is so much faster and more efficient than traditional therapy alone, it may still work out cheaper if you are making co-pays. We always try and work with clients on payment plans or find a solution if finances become a problem during a course of sessions. We are super approachable! Talk to us.

How many sessions do I need?
Hypnosis is a brief intervention, achieving outstanding results very quickly. For certain goals as few as two sessions is all it takes to make lasting change. Others appreciate the occasional top up so we created the Mini Boost. Some may need a broader and more nurturing approach tackling multiple issues to get to their goal that may take 6 sessions so we offer a complete package and a flexible payment plan to make this affordable.

Will I lose control?
No. While stage hypnosis utilizes many similar techniques to clinical or holistic hypnosis, the difference is that trust and doing exactly what the client wants is our main concern. Its actually like being more in control. The more you engage with hypnosis to quieten the mind and cut through the lies we tell ourselves and the conditioning we are exposed to, the more you are able to focus on what truly matters to you: gaining a far greater sense of control. As your guides in this process we are simply teaching you a more effective way to talk to your subconscious mind and in turn train your conscious habits with expert help. You will always feel good and safe when you are with us at JQ Hypnosis.

Will I remember my session?
This depends on the depth of trance. You will certainly remember all of your first session but depending on the issue being dealt with, you may be taken to a deeper state of trance where you forget all or part of your session but this is not common. We will always discuss the depth of trance with you and ensure we communicate with you thoroughly throughout the process to gain ongoing consent. If you don’t respond, then you’re asleep and you’re paying for a nap! At JQ Hypnosis we make sure this never happens. We continually monitor your trance level and bring you up or down depending on what you need.

Do you record the sessions?
Some clients request this and we are happy for you to record your session but for copyright reasons please do not share this online. If you would like a recording to listen to regularly to reinforce your sessions, we offer custom recordings designed and paced for this purpose.

What can I expect from my first session?
There will be a detailed analysis that builds on your free consultation. This will involve a conversation about the issue and some probing questions. If you can’t bring yourself to talk about it then just share what you can and we will do the rest. We will be observing a multitude of things to build a picture of how your unique mind works so that we can pick the techniques that work best for you. There is no one size fits all at JQ Hypnosis. There are hundreds of hypnotic techniques and strategies and ways to approach your goals the key to the easiest and fastest route to success is finding the right fit for you. We will then do short hypnosis session based on our observations – no more than 15 minutes – so you get a feel for it. It will be light and enjoyable. Like a gentle guided meditation made just for you.

How effective is hypnosis?
If done right- extremely. At JQ Hypnosis we have a success rate of over 95% Getting clients the results they want. Everyone can benefit from hypnosis. We have worked with clients with Schizophrenia, ADHD, Autism and even Deaf clients. Sessions at JQ Hypnosis are not designed to diagnose or treat any mental or physical disability or health condition but no disability or health condition is a barrier to hypnosis. Some people are more susceptible to hypnosis than others who and why continues to evade clinical researchers. I is a common myth that passive people respond better. Sometimes the biggest control freaks enjoy it the most and the most suggestible people put up the biggest walls when it comes to their most intimate thoughts. A skilled hypnotist will adapt to whomever they are working with to get the best from that person.
