Helping clients who are stuck find their awesome. Here are a few questions along the way:
What types of issues can you help with?
We help clients with all kinds of transitions, stuck in a relationship, a job, or just a rut.
Are phone/online Sessions effective?
We have experience with phone/online clients over 10 years and
find that the sessions are equally effective and can be more affordable for clients. We also offer in person sessions and zoom if you prefer.
What is life or relationship coaching?
Coaching is the use of various techniques to help someone sort out their challenges however,
coaching is not advice. Coaching is different from counseling in that it is looking forward
not in the rear view mirror of life. We are not psychologists, counselors or social workers. We are very different from couples counseling. Clients come to us because either therapy didn't work or they want something different or alternative.
What types of things can I sort out with a coach?
If you are wanting change and are ready to take steps to achieve it but are having trouble getting started or staying motivated then you are ready for a coach. You can use a coach or hypnotist in every area of your life from relationships, work or career, hobbies or sports. Coaches can help to overcome unhealthy habits and motivating the client to change.
How do I select someone to work with?
The most important factor is trust and rapport. You need to feel like you can share anything with your coach or hypnotist and that they are listening to you without any judgement. We have invested the time and money to learn professional techniques which prove worthy of your time in getting to your goal. Just make sure the person you choose has experience. We have clocked over 6,000 client sessions over the past 10 years.
How many sessions will I need?
It depends on where you are, where you want to go, and how quickly you want to get there. Some clients are able to achieve their goals in a few sessions. You are the one in charge of your sessions so you decide how far you want to go and at what pace. As long as you are feeling progress you can continue as long as you would like. You should be feeling more resourceful and that you’re learning to more effectively deal with new situations as they arise.
How does coaching work?
Coaching is a process and depending on the client and what they are seeking, the process can look differently for everyone. Good coaches learn to use verbal and non-verbal clues to pick up on what their clients need and then use the appropriate techniques to help the client achieve answers. Through relevant and challenging questioning, YOU will uncover the solutions and the resources within yourself.
How does it work, will I be knocked out or asleep?
Humans go in and out of different brain wave states all the time, however most people are not aware of it. You will be aware and remember the session. You can talk. Our job is to be the guide while the client makes the changes. It is important to work with an experienced guide who knows how to handle individual issues.
How much does it cost and how can I pay?
We offer an initial 30 minute consultation over the phone to get a better understanding of your goals and challenges and to determine the number of sessions the client should consider. We love helping our clients achieve their goals as quickly as possible. We offer packages to save money for those who are committed to investing in the process and we accept all major credit cards and payment plans through AfterPay and PayPal.
How often do we meet?
The frequency is dependent on the goal that the client wants to achieve and how fast they want to reach their goal. You set up the sessions based on your preference. Most clients come in once a week or once every two weeks, with most issues resolving in a few sessions.
What experience do you have?
We are Certified and Professional guides. The Center has served clients for over 17 years. Individually we each specialize in various issues and our years of experience provide a broad foundation of "real world" expertise. We have the highest level of training and continue to learn through ongoing training on the latest advances in the subconscious.
What kind of results can I expect?
Everyone is different. It really depends on your issues and open you are to work on it.
Is it like meditation?
Many people find it difficult to quiet the mind in meditation. In a deeply focused state, your concentration and focus are heightened to allow you to bring about positive change. You can still have thoughts, in fact you can find out how those thoughts are actually helping whereas meditation is about a single focus.
What about myths and misconceptions?
One misconception is that someone can control the person’s mind and actions. In reality, the client chooses whether to do the work. You do not lose your personality or free will, nor do you become a "zombie"
What should I expect in my session?
Prior to the first session, you will complete and send to us in advance your Confidential Agreement & Form. Sessions last approximately 90 minutes. We will review your forms prior to you coming in so we can learn more about you and discover any obstacles that keep you from achieving your goals and living the life you desire. We will explain the session format and answer. After your session, for additional support and guidance, you will receive via email, positive affirmations, supportive audios and a recap or homework.
What else should I be asking?
The most important factor is to confirm the person you are working with is professionally trained and certified. If you don't see multiple certificates and organizations that they are associated with, then it is likely they don't have much training. Check to see how long they have been in business, verify they have worked with an issue similar to yours and what the success rate is. Word of mouth is always a great way to get information about who to trust. Do they have a professional office? Do they have good reviews? Do they offer a free consultation?
Will my FSA or HSA account cover hypnosis?
Check with your provider. Smoking cessation and some other specific conditions might be eligible for reimbursement with a Letter of Medical Necessity (LMN) from the appropriate doctor/medical professional.
