Hypnosis sessions can be focused on a particular issue or a generalized overview of your current life situation. They can be used to learn more about your own inner workings, build resources, practice new habits, and discover how to be a success in all aspects of your life.

 Deep Relaxations are helpful in transforming anxiety into excitement, worry into action, and negative stress into positive tension - like tuning up your car or a guitar - creating harmony, vitality, and flow.

 Age Regressions can help to look at old coping mechanisms, behavior patterns, and outmoded ways of being for deeper understanding, breaking the chains of the past and creating new, better, healthier habits.

Past Life Regressions can reveal deep-seated patterns, insights into current relationships and ways of being, and an opportunity to tap into ancestral knowledge to create wisdom in the here and now.

• Dream Work explores the messages coming from deep within the psyche, allows for safe resolution of nightmares/night terrors, and is a rich source of creative inspiration.

 • Change Habits Discover the deeper purpose behind habits and how to fulfill that purpose in a new, healthier, deeply satisfying way. Because all of this is happening in your own mind, it is always the perfect right solution for you.

Hypnosis FAQs

Q: What is hypnosis and how does it work? 
A: Hypnosis is a very natural process of entering a state of deep relaxation. This helps your subconscious mind become more attentive, receptive to suggestion, and open to change. All hypnosis is really self-hypnosis. Over a series of hour-long sessions, Kayla will guide you to master an ability you already have. Once you have learned how to enter and use your trance state, you can use it to change aspects of your behavior and achieve your desired goals.

Q: How can I be sure I can be hypnotized? 
A: You enter some form of hypnosis several times a day, like when you are driving and pass your turn-off because you have been paying attention to a great conversation, or being absorbed in a really good book. Everyone goes through natural, altered states before they fall asleep, and as they come into wakefulness. During your session, you are aware, not asleep, and in touch with your core values and beliefs. It is easy to communicate and it is easy to come out of - you are always in control.

Q: How many sessions will I need? 
A: Resolving your issue will depend on the issue itself, as well as on your commitment to change. Typically, clients start with three sessions - the initial consultation, establishing inner resources, and reinforcement. Sessions may be recorded for home practice.

Q: How often should I schedule sessions? 
A: The goal is to teach you simple, effective self-hypnosis techniques. Depending on your motivation and commitment to change, some folks visit each week, some monthly, others come as often as they see fit to address their needs.  

Q: What else should I do? 
A: Practice what you learn in sessions, especially the self-hypnosis technique; Drink water; Keep a journal; Balance work and play; Breathe deeply; Check in with other healers for a holistic experience - ask for a referral for any service you may need at this time.
