Natalia K. says, "To explain David’s work is to explain the work of servant leader. David, quite literally, saved my life. I was a young 18yo high school graduate when I met David with a heavy load of anxiety, PTSD, and depression. I had no direction or idea of how to deal with what I was going through just that I couldn’t function. I was starting college and it was crucial I get help. David was the sole person that I felt safe with and that I relied on to get me through my first year. He really opened my eyes and taught me about myself and how to process and get better with everything. I was even desperate to get on medication, that’s how bad it was. But David is the one who gave me a breakdown of what the medication is, how it works, how it’s suppose to help and the drawbacks. He encouraged me to try to work with him first for 6 months before taking medications, and I’m so thankful he did! Most therapists would not do that. I never ended up taking it and I’m so glad I didn’t stuck on it. David had my best interest from the start and truly took his time to help me. David is also incredibly knowledgeable is always doing more reading on recent research, staying up to date about psychological concepts. David doesn’t give BS answers, he gives the truth and the science of what’s going on with you and your mind. He’s logical and it makes sense! I’m 25 now and I still talk to David but less frequently, and had I not had David to go to when I was 18, I wouldn’t be in the place I am without him. I never believed I could get better when I was 18, I thought this was just who I am and I’ll never be better, but he guided me that I could. It took a lot, and I mean A LOT of work, but he was there guiding me through it all. And the fact that I talk to David a couple times a year vs every week is truly a sign that David’s work works. David always said “the less you need to talk to me the better. The goal is to equip you with the ability to navigate this in your own without me.” That’s when you know you have a good therapists because their goal is not make money from you but to help you until you don’t need them anymore. Thank you David." Read more

Sepano H. says, "I’ve been aware of hypnotherapy and its relevance/benefits to human performance living for many years. Upon learning of Farzin’s expertise in the field, I knew it would be a great opportunity to seek out his professional help. I personally sought to take it on in order to get further in touch with my authentic self and break certain long-standing limiting beliefs as well as work through old patterns to heal childhood traumas. I would say my life was going about the right trajectory, however, there were certain limitations which held me back from living and expressing my best self. I had the most intense and profound session during the initial “deletion session”. Farzin guided me into the trance state and from there helped take me back to certain origins were initial traumas occurred. I was able to experience release and reconciliation of these trauma. From there we went into the following two session at later dates to then program and “install” desired patterns. Farzin was very in tune with the goals I set and desired state I was looking for. He did a great job creating a customized hypnosis audio script to supplement the continued work. I feel a little lighter and more free with myself. There isn’t as much self-resistance as there was in the past. Additionally, and this is even more profound, I am no longer burdened with anger and upset towards certain traumas that I experienced during childhood. As mentioned above, I am more of my authentic self. I am not nearly as hard on myself or self-critical over seemingly mundane things. And if I am, I can immediately catch those self-defeating and limiting thought patterns. ANYTHING is possible. Nothing is limited or set in stone. It is merely a matter of belief and disciplined adherence to empowering belief systems. This is hypnosis. You WILL experience change. Have no expectations, however. Just trust the process and ALLOW the work to take place as you engage in practices, specific to your unique hypnosis work, which Farzin will help you develop. Farzin, thank you for helping me unlock another aspect of myself." Read more

Your Hypnotherapy questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thervo.

How much does hypnotherapy cost?

Hypnotherapy costs $100 to $250 per session on average, though prices range anywhere from $50 to $1,000+ per session, depending on the location and the therapist's experience level and reputation. Your first visit typically costs more because it is a longer session that involves an initial consultation, an introductory explanation about the hypnotherapy process, and your first hypnosis therapy treatment.

What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis in a clinical or therapeutic setting by a qualified healthcare professional. During a hypnotherapy session, the therapist guides you into a deeply relaxed but focused, trance-like state where the mind is more receptive and open to discussion and suggestions. Therapists use hypnosis to either delve deeper into an issue or to suggest behavioral changes that align with your goals.

Most hypnotherapists start with a lengthy first visit that includes an initial consultation, an explanation of the therapeutic process, and your first hypnosis therapy session. After the initial visit, ongoing hypnotherapy sessions typically last 30 to 90 minutes.

What does hypnotherapy help with?

Research confirms that hypnotherapy can help treat a wide variety of issues and conditions, including:

  • Addiction
  • Anxiety
  • Bedwetting
  • Depression
  • Disordered eating
  • Fears and phobias
  • Grief
  • Insomnia and other sleep issues
  • Nail biting
  • Pain
  • PTSD
  • Smoking
  • Stress
  • Test or performance anxiety
  • Dental treatment anxiety

Is hypnotherapy dangerous?

In most cases, hypnotherapy is not dangerous when done with a trained professional. A hypnotherapist cannot control your mind or make you do or say anything you don’t want. However, hypnotherapy may not be safe or effective for people with severe mental health conditions like bipolar disorder, psychosis, or schizophrenia.

Can anyone be hypnotized?

No, not everyone can be hypnotized fully enough to benefit from hypnotherapy. Research shows that about 10% to 15% of people are highly suggestible and able to be hypnotized, and about the same percentage cannot be hypnotized at all. The remaining 70% to 80% of the population is suggestable to some degree and can potentially benefit from hypnosis therapy.

How many hypnotherapy sessions do I need?

Most people see at least some improvement in 3 to 6 hypnotherapy sessions. Some minor issues can be resolved in only one session. However, more severe, deep-rooted issues may require up to 15+ sessions for long-lasting results. The number of sessions you need depends on several factors, including your mind and personality, the issue itself, the circumstances surrounding that issue, as well as how long you've been battling it.

Is hypnotherapy covered by insurance?

Hypnotherapy may be partially covered by insurance if the treatment is considered medically necessary and performed by a licensed medical professional. Insurance companies that cover hypnotherapy typically cover 10% to 50% of the total cost. Many insurance companies still consider hypnotherapy an experimental technique and therefore will not approve it as a covered expense. Check with your insurance provider to see if your plan has coverage for hypnotherapy.

How do I choose the best hypnotherapist near me?

There are currently no national regulations for practicing hypnotherapy. Many states also do not have specific requirements for hypnotherapists. This makes it crucial that you do your own thorough research to make sure the therapist you hire is qualified and experience in using hypnotherapy to treat the issue or issues you're dealing with.

When researching hypnotherapists near you, remember to:

What questions should I ask when searching for a hypnotherapist?

Ask the following questions to help you select the most qualified hypnotherapist for your needs and goals:

  • What state licenses or certifications do you have?
  • How long have you been doing hypnotherapy?
  • What experience do you have treating my specific issue?
  • Do you offer free consultations?
  • How long are your sessions, and do you charge by the hour or by the session?
  • How many sessions will I need to see results?
  • What should I expect out of the first session?
  • What is your cancellation policy?
  • Do you offer a discount for buying more than one session at a time?
  • Do you offer a sliding scale fee or payment plan options?
