About this pro
I hate ever leaving any review under a 5 but in this case, I have to. Personally, I've had hypnosis work done on me before that was very successful but the technique that was used on me (95% success rate) honestly did nothing for me but get me drinking more water. My rating doesn't reflect Kathy's demeanor or friendliness. It does reflect the fact I remembered the entire session and this wasn't my experience I had before when trying to quit smoking. I even said as much at end of session and called within 24hrs after leaving because the cravings were so bad. Before when I had hypnosis done (that worked for me), I immediately went under & didn't smoke for years afterwards, until something very stressful happened and my nerves got the best of me. I told Kathy this and followed her verbal instructions because I was never given a copy of the helpful guidelines when I left her office. Since getting shot in 09, my funds have gotten tight & I can't afford to waste $. For myself, this was a waste of money. Each person is different but when someone tells a person what works for them & what hasnt, it's probably be a good thing to work in those parameters so funds & time on both sides aren't wasted. If anything changes, I'll be glad to update this reviewMay 27, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $80 per hour. Most first sessions take 1.5 hours and cost $120. Smoking Cessation is one 2-hour session for $160. My 5-session package is $350 regardless of the time spent on each session.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Clients contact me by phone, text or email. We discuss what it is they want to work on. I give them an estimate of the number of sessions it will take based on my experience working with their type of issue. For example, I recommend a package of 5 sessions for weight loss or anxiety. Smoking takes 1 2-hour session. Surgery prep is 1 or 2 sessions. Text anxiety is one session. I then explain what I will be doing in the sessions. I provide a game plan based on the best practices that have worked for me for their specific issue. We have our first session (if it is a multiple session issue). We discuss anything else they feel is pertinent. I go over what to expect in the session. We do the session and I provide them with a recording to use after they leave my office. The recorded hypnosis session serves for reinforcement since most clients need to hear the suggestions more than once.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am Board Certified through the National Guild of Hypnotists and got my Teacher's Certification through the International Hypnosis Federation.
