This was my first meeting with Helen and I did not know what to expect. It was wonderful, she began by asking questions and getting to know me and what I wanted to work on. Then she guided me through a hypnosis/meditation that was comfortable and just lovely. I’m sure it will help me, as I am already seeing signs of better health and emotional well being. I have scheduled another session with Helen to dive deeper into my issues. I trust her implicitly. Thank you Helen ❤️Oct 3, 2019Verified
Absolutely amazing! I was a little nervous as this was my first experience with hypnosis, but she made me feel at ease the entire time. I got so much more out of it than I expected. Helen was so pleasant to speak with and I can’t wait for our next session!Oct 8, 2019Verified
I received a hypnotic session designed to clear a Post Traumatic Stress issue that has been troubling me for decades. Traditional talk therapy revealed all the rational understandable reasons for my depression and anxiety. Self-help books and retreats confirmed bad habits and subconscious patterns but nothing seemed to shake the issue from my tissue. If this sounds like you I highly recommend hypnotic therapy. It's not a guided meditation. A guided meditation is like a walk in the park. A hypnotic session is a like a walk into your personal mental-physical reality. I got in touch with my feelings as tangible energy. Then I used my own personal mind to release the energy emphatically. It's a two-way mind body connection. In the first, if you stay too much in your rational, thinking mind - you won't be able to tap into what's really eating you. So under hypnosis I entered the land of sensation. The geography of my emotions. After mapping them out physically I re-entered my rational, thinking mind to consciously release the unpleasant, uncomfortable energies. If you don't do this, you can stay trapped in your own whirlwind of drama, hypnotized by your own psychic physics. Don't do that! In sum, hypnosis, with a trusted guide, builds a bridge between sensation and analytical thinking. I felt very safe with Helen having tested out a couple of her free hypnotic sessions available on her website. I encourage you to try these first. Not everyone can be hypnotized. But if you, like me, easily are - it doesn't mean you are weak minded, but rather that you are a creative type with a great imagination. On accident I did one hypnotic sessions with a different hypnotist, (from a youTube video that I thought was another Helen video) and that person did not hypnotize me as effectively. So I suppose it is a combination of willing participant and skilled guide. I am a hundred per cent satisfied with my session. I truly hope you experience similar results.Feb 22, 2017Verified
Helen is such a kind and knowledgeable soul. She was able to help me with my depression, in just one session. I no longer think about dying all of the time. I plan to continue with more sessions. It's kind of funny how I found her in the first place, I've never used Thumbtack before, but somehow was guided there and asked for information about hypnosis, on their website and within a short time, I received approx 5 different quotes from various different hypnotists. I chose Helen for a couple of reasons. First, she has a lot of video reviews on her website from past clients and secondly, she was a lot more affordable than the other quotes. So, if you are looking for someone that can help you find your life's purpose, someone that can help you at your darkest moments, someone that Really cares about You, I highly recommend Helen Basinger.Feb 4, 2017Verified
Helen helped me to release the pain, and feelings of guilt and shame that I had been holding on to since childhood. When I think of the reasons behind them, I feel light, free, and detached from it all. Thank you Helen!Oct 8, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I normally charge $150 for a first 2 hour session and then $125 for a session after that, but only $109 for each session on Thumbtack. I will be able to serve you best if we can agree a minimum of two sessions. For quitting smoking you should look at two sessions definitely - and it would be wise to commit to 3-5 sessions for weight loss or addiction.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We set up a time where we can spend 90 minutes together, usually on Zoom.us or by phone. I'll ask you to tell me about yourself and what's bothering with you. I may ask you questions about your past and your family. Then I ask you to close your eyes so that we can locate the problem 'energy' and then transmute it into the positive. There are many ways of doing this and one of my skills seems to be knowing what technique to use.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I an a certified Master Clinical Hypnotherapist, training in Florida, USA. (MCHt.). My education is always on-going and have done courses in NLP and Life Coaching as well as Energy Healing. I now teach my technique called Emotional Alchemy™ to others. I am also a master EFT practitioner.
