Weight Management Program: $350
(5 sessions total)
Weight management is not just about food. Environmental cues and triggers, core beliefs about yourself, the attitudes of loved ones, and emotional associations with food are all very important. I take a holistic approach to weight management and address it on a number of different levels. Clients may or may not be overweight, but all are struggling with their relationship to food in some way. If you have a diagnosed eating disorder, I am happy to work with you as long as you are simultaneously under the care of a licensed health professional (clinical psychologist, physician, social worker, psychiatrist etc.).
While most hypnotists only deal with helping clients trim down, I also help clients gain weight by building lean, healthy muscle. (This service is good for hard gainers, bodybuilders, athletes, or anyone who wants to break through a plateau at the gym and increase lean muscle mass. Typically, this client tends to be male … though not always.)
Tabacco Cessation Program: $350
(5 sessions total)
Smokers seek help at varying stages in the process of quitting smoking. Many smokers do NOT want to quit so congratulations if you are even reading this! Perhaps you are just starting to think about quitting, or you may even be ready to quit right now.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome: $400
(7 sessions total)
There are 7 scheduled visits for this package, and the program that I offer is the standard IBS protocol, which was discovered here, in Chapel Hill. So, rather than re-invent the wheel, here is what the standard material regarding using hypnosis for IBS states:
During the first visit, I will interview you about your medical and psychological history, discussion of the nature and severity of the current symptoms, as well as review the past treatments and conclusions of any medical evaluation and tests to make sure that our work together is in line with what your doctors have been doing for you. I typically want to make sure that the client has been well-evaluated medically and that a firm diagnosis of IBS has already been made. I also use this first visit to establish rapport, educate the client about IBS (as needed), and teach the client some basic hypnosis. I make every effort to give the client a realistic expectation of the possible gains. I explain that the program offered is not a cure for IBS and that not everybody improves, but the research as well as my own experience indicate that about 4 out of every 5 people benefit from the treatment.
The second visit is generally scheduled at least 2 weeks after the first one to allow a 2-week symptom baseline. I strongly emphasize to the client the benefits of recording the bowel symptoms daily in the interval between the first and second visits and to bring the symptom record to the second visit.
At the end of the second treatment session, clients receive the hypnosis audio recording for home use. The home practice is an integral part of the treatment, and I strongly emphasize the importance of it with clients. If people report having a hard time using the audio recording daily, I ask them to do their best to use it at least five times a week. Compliance with home practice is generally good. The audiotaped home exercise contains a self-hypnosis type of induction to aid clients in eventually switching to self-hypnosis home practice once they are very familiar with the recorded hypnosis exercise, and I invite them to do so. However, many prefer to continue their home hypnosis practice with the aid of the audio recording throughout the treatment course.
|Single 2-hour session for stress-busting and confidence boosting: $150|
If you are nervous about an upcoming event e.g. making a big speech, getting married, performing a solo, defending a dissertation etc. learn a variety of techniques to reduce stress, boost self-confidence, and make your big day a success!
If requesting a refund on a partially used program, price reverts to the regular hourly rate ($100) e.g. if you have used 2 sessions of a 4-session program that cost $300, you have received a $200 value and will receive a $100 refund.
