Does Online Hypnosis Really Work?

Absolutely, hypnosis via Skype, Zoom, Facetime, etc. works and is as effective as in-person meetings. Online sessions (sometimes called “Skypenosis”) offers many advantages over traditional one-on-one sessions.

Some advantages of online sessions include:

· less travel time

· greater scheduling flexibility (lunch breaks, when children are in bed, etc)

· can schedule appointments even when travelling for greater continuity and,

· for clients from the United States, the greater purchasing power of their dollar means that the sessions are even more cost effective!​

What other software can be used for hypnosis?

There is a wide range of web conference software packages which can be used for hypnosis, including FaceTime, Skype and Google Hangouts, however I use Zoom as it is straightforward and can be used on a wide range of devices. I also prefer the Zoom call quality.

What should I be aware of in preparing for an online session?

In preparing for an online session, you must plan ahead. Some of the basics include making sure that you find time and location where you will not be disturbed by family, friends and pets. It is also important to make sure that your internet access is fast enough to support a video call (go into the software we agree to use -i.e. Zoom, Skype, etc- and try the test option to see if you have a reliable internet connection.) If we are using Skype, you should update to the latest version of Skype. The you should make sure that your doors are locked, there is nothing on the stove and that you are ready to dedicate your time to the session.

If you are not comfortable with the computer technology, we also have the option of hosting the session via telephone.

How do I pay for sessions?
