Are results guaranteed?
No. I’m good but I’m not God. Human behavior cannot be guaranteed. Results depend on the clients’ motivation to change and their ability to follow instructions. ou will then be directed through relaxation techniques to change the behaviors and alleviate the symptoms by using mental imagery and intended suggestions. For example, someone suffering from panic attacks may be given the suggestion that, in the future, they will be able to relax at will. Each session also includes training in Self-Hypnosis in order to continue the benefits in the comfort of your own home. All clients are instructed and coached in the proper use of self-hypnosis so that they will have a tool that they can use for the rest of their life. The total process is a gentle, relaxing experience that leaves you feeling energized, refreshed and comfortable with your new goals.
