Medical Hypnosis Sessions and Fees
I offer one-on-one medical hypnosis sessions for MS as well as other chronic diseases and physical symptoms. Sessions are 75-90 minutes long every other week (averaging two sessions a month). All sessions are one-on-one at my office in Santa Cruz, CA, or via online-conferencing (Zoom, FaceTime, Skype, etc.). The amount of time between sessions is designed to allow the mind and body to adapt to the changes. Clients come for three sessions for single issues and up to 24 sessions to complete the multiple sclerosis program. Amount of sessions depends on the number of symptoms, psycho-social factors involved, and duration of the disease.
The cost is $150 per session.
$395/3-sessions if paid in advance.
$105 for a 50-minute session for children.
Multiple Sclerosis might have seemed to you, at first, like a worse diagnosis than a brain tumor, but, as its an autoimmune disease, it’s easily affected by your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. And that’s a good thing! The program I offer is based on many years of research on the most effective combination of hypnotherapy and neurolinguistic programming (NLP) to resolve the underlying psychological and social causes behind your disease. The improvements of my clients have been significant. It can be done!
Other Healing Programs
Though my specialty is multiple sclerosis (MS), I have extensive experience and training to work with other diseases and disorders. I apply a similar system so that we are sure to explore the subconscious cause and maintenance behind the symptoms, function-focused suggestions to relieve symptoms and work to enhance your confidence and ability to take charge of your life. I also train other practitioners to work with chronic disease.
If you are suffering from panic attacks, or find yourself more fearful after a car accident or other traumatic event (that sometimes lingers as pain or stiffness but other times as a feeling that the other shoe is about to drop), consider having a few hypnotherapy sessions with me. I also work with runaway thoughts that keep you from sleeping, long-term grief that seems to linger, and guilt from things that happened so long ago.
Hypnosis for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is recommended by the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in the UK for patients that do not respond well to standard treatment. I have trained with Helen Bremner. Helen, a registered nurse, created the only NHS hypnotherapy service for IBS in the UK.
If you have IBS or if you have MS as well as IBS, consider gut-directed hypnosis. It not only helps with controlling your GI tract, but it has also proven to reduce anxiety and depression.
As with MS, chronic disease has both a physical cause as well as a psychosocial cause. I help my clients work on the psychosocial causes behind any disease. I’ve worked with fibromyalgia, chronic pain, Parkinson, lupus, Hashimoto thyroiditis, cancer, and arthritis; and teach other practitioners how to address chronic disease.
