Frequently Asked Questions – FAQs

1. What can you expect when you come for a hypnosis session?

Hypnosis is not anaesthesia. Your body will be relaxed but your mind will be aware of what is happening. As we move further into the session, we will ask the mind to step back so the sub-conscious can come through. Think of hypnosis as a very long daydream.

As you visit your past life memories or the earlier part of your current life, to understand and get the answers to your questions, you will never be uncomfortable emotionally or physically. You will be given a suggestion that will allow you to avoid feeling any discomfort.

You are always in control of what you wish to explore, ask or understand about yourself. You come with the questions you want answered, and you can also request the healings you need. I act as a facilitator and I will monitor the process as we go through.

2. Can you describe what happens in a QHHT session?

There are 3 parts to your session.

The Preliminary Discussion
Before your session, we will go over the reasons you are coming for therapy, what you hope to gain from it, the questions you would like answered, and the important relationships in your life. The issues, questions and healings to be discussed with your subconscious will all be clarified with you at this time.

The Trance Time
You will be settled comfortably into a reclining position where you can relax, feel safe and warm. The induction uses visualization which most people are easily able to do. Pictures and images are the way that the subconscious normally communicates. If you can remember and describe an important event from your past, then you can be assured that you are able to visualize.

Once you enter the trance state, you will be immediately in touch with your subconscious, and we will be able to get the answers to your questions, to facilitate healing, and to receive the wisdom and advice that is available to you at this time.

The Reorientation
After the session, you will be brought back to wakefulness and you will feel refreshed, just as though you’ve had a nap. We then go over the information we received and we discuss the answers to the questions you brought with you.

An QHHT session can take 3-5 hours. Allow for travel time, so you won’t be rushed. Sessions are always one-on-one, and in person.

3. How many QHHT sessions are required for a full treatment?

You can have a full treatment with one session. The number of appointments is determined by your needs, so it varies between clients. It is your choice if you would like to return to have more work done. You can always feel free to ask for another appointment.

A full QHHT session normally lasts between 3-5 hours. Before you come, it may be helpful to prepare a list of issues and questions you want addressed, so we will be sure not to miss anything. You can even email this list to me to save time.

Some clients find it helps to have an “integration session” after they’ve had time to listen to their recording and digest what they’ve learned from their session. Returning to discuss what happened after your QHHT past life session, helps to understand what is going on in terms of your current life. New insights can emerge from further discussion of ideas and questions that have come to mind since you had your session. However, this is not a requirement. It is your choice.

4. How do I know if I can go into trance?
Trance is something we all experience many times a day. Research has shown that about 75% of the population is easily able to experience hypnosis. In fact, we experience hypnosis many times during a day.

When driving, or daydreaming or watching TV, we go into a light hypnotic trance. Driving commonly puts people into a hypnotic state. This explains how you can drive for miles and not remember anything you saw during that time. Or you can read a few pages of a book and at the end, realize you don’t recall anything of what you just read. Studies have shown that within 30 seconds of turning on the TV, we enter a light trance state. While travelling on a plane, the monotonous drone of the aircraft will put most people into a trance state, which is often helpful in making a long-haul flight more bearable. As you can see from these examples we are actually hypnotized or in trance, a lot of the time. So this is nothing new to anyone.

Whether you can go into trance is up to you. You are a big part of the equation. If you do not want to, then you will not allow yourself to go into the trance state. Those who can most easily allow themselves to go into trance, are able to visualize with their mind’s eye. That is the part of the mind that holds the images and symbols that we access in our dreams. And it’s the part of the mind that we work with in hypnosis.

There is a test to determine whether or not you are a good subject for hypnosis.

Here is a little test to see how easy it is to experience hypnosis
Imagine yourself standing in front of a lemon tree. You reach out and pick a juicy lemon and peel it easily. You then separate out one of the sections. Put it into your mouth and taste the lemon. If you find yourself swallowing, or salivating, or reacting to the bitter lemon taste in some way, then you are likely to be a good candidate for hypnosis. You don’t have to taste it, you only have to react in some way. That means that something imaginary can become real in your mind.

If you are totally unaffected by this imaginative experience, then chances are, you may not be able to experience hypnosis.

5. Do I lose control when I’m in a trance state?
It is commonly believed that when a person is in trance they give up control. This comes from stage hypnosis, where people would volunteer to get up before an audience, and play the fool for a short time. Most of the audience would never agree to that, and they think that these people are being controlled against their will. Not so. They are actually enjoying the suggestions they are being given by the hypnotist, and the freedom hypnosis gives them to get up on stage and perform.

Most people are pleasantly surprised to learn that we don’t lose control when experiencing hypnosis. We actually remain aware of everything we say and do while in hypnosis. We are using a natural ability to easily shift our focus inward, which allows us to establish a means through which to communicate with our deeper mind and inner wisdom.

6. Can a disease be healed in the session?
All healing is self healing. Whether it’s with drugs, healing touch, Reiki, prayer, surgery or hypnosis, it’s your “Higher Self” that does the healing along with co-operation from your “Conscious Self”. That’s why both need to be in agreement for the healing to last.

What we do is hold open a window of opportunity long enough for you to decide if you are ready to accept healing for your condition. Healing can be immediate or it an happen over time.

So, we will enter a place of healing, and yes immediate healing is very possible. I have seen a woman walk out of a session literally carrying her crutches, which she had been dependent on for over a year.

If you think this is “hokey”, you may need to ask if you are ready for this. However, the beauty of Quantum Hypnosis is that, even if you do not achieve an immediate healing, we can get answers as to what is going on.

Sometimes understanding why you have the disease, what role it plays in your life, is just as important, and can help to prepare you for when you are ready for more healing. Sometimes, it isn’t the right time for healing, but every session will benefit you in some way.

7. How can I help to release the condition or heal it?

This kind of hypnosis is not like you see in stage shows for entertainment. It is also not anaesthesia. It’s more like a “guided daydream”. And you are not asleep. So your conscious mind can intervene and stop what is happening at any time. This may happen because it sees a change in your health status as a threat to your normal state of being. For example, if you have been sick for a long time, the “normal state of being” to your conscious mind is sickness. Usually, it just needs to be reassured that you are now ready to change your health status to reflect a healthier experience.

Why would your conscious mind try to hold onto sickness? Because the conscious mind wants to protect you, and is always on the alert, especially if you are the kind of person who lives a lot of the time in your mind, analyzing, and observing and being in control. The mind takes the job of “protecting” you in this world seriously. When it observes that real changes can take place that are out of it’s control, it naturally will “try” to step in. But you can prepare your mind to be ready for the changes you want.

You can do this by consciously assuring yourself before you arrive that you want these changes to happen. That releasing the disease or condition is something desirable. If you arrive at your session scared and uncertain, you can be sure that your conscious mind will be on “high alert”, and will take every opportunity to stop any changes in the status quo from happening to you, even if they are healing and good for you.

Most people are able to let the conscious mind go and have no interference. And during your session we will soothe that part of you, so it can step back – take a “time out” from it’s vigilance, and allow us to work on your mind, body or emotions – whatever needs healing.

But you can prepare yourself before you come, by relaxing and assuring your mind, that this is something you very much want. Using helpful affirmations like: “My conscious mind will stand back and allow clear and direct communication with my Higher Self” begins a kind of programming process that calms the mind and teaches it that you – your soul self – is in control and you know what you are doing, so the mind can relax.

During the session you will be encouraged to follow your imagination! As we begin the process, it may even seem to you that you are making it all up. This is the beginning of allowing your right brain, creative self to take over from the left brain, logical, conscious mind that is usually in control in some people. And as we go deeper into the process, a change happens that allows the healing to come through.

I encourage you to daydream about being healed. In this way, you are PRIMING yourself for the real thing. Keep it up, and keep it up after the session too. And you will be allowing the healing to manifest.

Remember, you are the one who does the healing. Only you. No one else. Not me or the doctors, or the drugs or the hypnosis. All healing is self healing.

8. Can I bring along a friend, or relative to sit in on the session?
You may think you need someone, but since a lot of sensitive information may emerge, it is best that you be in the session by yourself. You can then decide later what you wish to share. You will have a videorecording of your session which you can share with whomever you wish. If you need someone to drive you or accompany you, they will need to drop you off.

9. Can I ask questions, in my session, to help other people I know?
Our lives are all about relationships with others. This is why we are here, to help each other. So, yes, indeed you can ask questions that could help your family, your friends, your neighbors, even your pets, in fact, anyone you are in some kind of relationship with. Remember when you help others, you are helping to make this world a better place.

10. What if you are unable to leave home for any reason?
I am willing to travel within a 20 mile radius of Vancouver to your home. You will need to be able to provide a quiet room, where you can recline, and where we will be undisturbed for the duration of the session.
