I have all of the tools and skills necessary to help with fix your problem or achieve your goal quickly and efficiently. I combine therapy and hypnosis to target the roots of your problem and address it thoroughly and efficiently, so you get long-term results.

2- What kind of therapy do I use? 

As a hypnotherapist, I have a wide array of tools to use. I begin with conversational hypnotherapy, in which you and I will have a conversation, and as your mind presents information to me, I adjust the path of the conversation to connect with the part of your mind that is responsible for your problem and guide it to solve it for you.

We will eventually discover what is preventing you from solving the problem or what’s keeping you from reaching your goal, then address these findings, and fulfill those needs in order to make amends with this part of your mind.

3- How can hypnotherapy help you ?

Your problem is created in the part of your mind that’s called ( the subconscious mind) 

The subconscious mind is responsible for your habits, programs, involuntary functions, how you react in every day life and all your memories since you were in the womb.

It’s so powerful and 9 times the size of its counterpart, the conscious mind ( which is the logic part of your mind) 

 Lecturing you all day about well power or give you tips and tricks is fruitless and not gonna solve your problem. To solve your problem you need to bypass your conscious mind and dive deeper to your subconscious where your problem was created and find out why it’s preventing you from solving it.

So in order to solve your problem you need to talk to your subconscious, hypnosis at its simplest form is about bypassing the conscious mind and connecting to your subconscious and when you combine that with the right therapy then the subconscious is guided to solve the problem or eliminate the resistance that stops you from reaching your goal.

4-How am I different?and why I have a high success rate?

I don’t give you ready-made solutions to your problem or force my own solutions on you; instead I guide you to dive inside so you can find your own answers.

Why is it important to find your own answers?

Because these answers come directly from the part of your mind that created the problem,

Your subconscious mind knows exactly why it created the problem this way and exactly how to fix it; thus, the best place to find answers and solutions to your problem is your mind, not mine.

Other therapists might give you one-size-fits-all solutions to help you, or maybe some tips and tricks to cope with your problem.

What I do is talk to the part of your mind that’s responsible for keeping you stuck with your problem, and with the right guidance, it will fix the your problem and you’ll have everlasting results.

5-What is my approach?

My approach is very different and effective. For example smoking as an emotional habit has roots and branches just like a tree.
Is smoking a root or a branch? It’s merely a branch because it’s nothing more than a service manifestation of a deep, unresolved problem.
The core cause that keeps you smoking is quite different and unique for each person. It’s responsible for the resistance that makes quitting a nightmare. Surprisingly, once the root cause is identified and treated, the resistance disappears, and quitting becomes much easier.
Smoking may represent a connection or a feeling of revenge against someone or against yourself.
If I just focus on the smoking in this scenario, I'm just cutting the branch, and those emotions will manifest later in cravings.
My approach whether with smoking habit or any emotional problem is that I always go for the roots. If I cut the roots, the whole tree would naturally fall off.

6-How can you prepare for the session? 

The most important thing is to show up motivated, focused, present, and ready to answer any questions I may find in your best interest.
The meeting will be held virtually through Zoom. The meeting link will be provided in the email sent shortly after booking; if you can’t find the email, please check your spam. When the meeting time arrives, click on the URL provided.

Because this is a video meeting, you'll need a good webcam, a good internet connection, and good room lighting.
It’s important to use a computer or laptop for the meeting. It's less trouble than using your phone and has a superior camera, so you won't lose focus thinking about adjusting your camera.
Please refrain from eating, drinking, smoking, or chewing gum during the session. You may drink water if necessary.

Please use the restroom before the session.

My sessions are quite strong and intense, therefore it’s better if you take the rest of the session’s day off.
