WHAT PHONE HYPNOSIS IS
PHONE HYPNOSIS is for people like you who sincerely desire the positive benefits of hypnosis and want to work with a hypnotist of international standing. It is just like a person-to-person session, except it takes place over the telephone, and the cost is greatly reduced.
WHAT PHONE HYPNOSIS ISN’T
SINCE YOUR TELEPHONE HYPNOSIS SESSION offers the highest quality of therapeutic, professional hypnotherapy:
It is not entertainment
It is not X-rated, or even PG-13 rated. Any such calls are immediately terminated. Our is an ethical business and we maintain high moral standards.
It is not a substitute for appropriate medical and psychological care by a licensed professional. Although there will be a preliminary interview before your session starts to learn about you and the issues you want to work on, as well as to help you feel comfortable with hypnosis, telephone hypnosis sessions are not “talk” therapy, where you spend the majority of your time chatting with a therapist about your porblems. You will instead spend the majority of your time in that deeply relaxed, safe, and healing state we call hypnosis.
WHAT KINDS OF ISSUES CAN BE ADDRESSED WITH PHONE HYPNOSIS?
GOOD QUESTION! Smoking cessation, weight reduction and management, confidence, music performance, feeling attractive, sports improvement, deep relaxation, stress reduction, female responsiveness, creativity, acting on stage or film, auditioning, memory, study skills, public speaking, and more.
Certain kinds of pain management and physical illnesses may also be addressed by using hypnosis over the telephone; however, we only work on medical issues in conjunction with a licensed physician, and such sessions require a HIPAA release so that we may communicate with your physician
WHAT KINDS OF ISSUES ARE NOT SUITED FOR PHONE HYPNOSIS?
While these can be addressed in an in-person hypnosis session, anything with a strong emotional content is unwise over the phone. Why? Calls can be dropped or cut off for multiple reasons, which would leave the client in a state of distress. Anyone suggesting offering to do such work over the telephone is not a scrupulous, well-trained, or wise practitioner.
ANOTHER GOOD QUESTION! You do not want to use phone hypnosis for profound phobias and unreasonable fears; psychoses and other serious emotional disturbances; sexual compulsions or fetishes; regression to cause; depression; deep emotional healing; past-life regression; alcoholism; drug addiction; other situations requiring more intense therapy.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF PHONE HYPNOSIS VERSUS A ONE-ON-ONE SESSION?
With phone hypnosis: You will save on commuting time, parking expenses and gasoline. You don’t even have to dress up! Since the hypnosis occurs in the privacy of your own home, you can be as casual and comfortable as you wish.
The disadvantages of phone hypnosis: There is no face-to-face contact. The hypnotist is not able to make certain determinations that would normally be made by observing your body language, breathing patterns, expression and other visual indicators. Because of this, you will be required to remain in verbal contact with Ms. Raines throughout your session. This is easily done and will not interfere with the depth of your hypnotic state.
Why not Skype? Skype communications are not as reliable as phone, eat up your data, and can suck your battery dry. You will be reclining with your eyes closed most of the time, and propping up the phone/camera/computer for the hypnotist to see your face and have clear sound at the same time is unnecessary and frustrating.
HOW MANY TELEPHONE SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
IT DEPENDS ON YOUR ISSUE. Some people simply want a jump-start on solving their issue and one session is all they need. Others want to work more in depth and require four to six sessions. For issues like serious weight loss or pain management, more sessions are usually required.
WILL YOU HYPNOTIZE MY TEENAGER OR CHILD OVER THE PHONE?
NO. We only work with adults in good mental health who are 18 or older on the telephone, but we will be happy to schedule a person-to-person visit with your child whenever possible.
WHERE DO I HAVE TO LIVE TO HAVE A PHONE HYPNOSIS SESSION?
YOU MAY LIVE anywhere in the USA where PayPal is accepted! (At this time, we are unable to work with people outside the USA, unless you have a US PayPal account.)
DO I NEED TO BE A CELEBRITY OR RICH TO HAVE A SESSION WITH MARY ELIZABETH RAINES?
ABSOLUTELY NOT! Phone sessions are surprisingly affordable! Mary Elizabeth Raines works with both celebrity clients and people from all walks of life who, like you, are serious about making positive changes. Sessions are 100% confidential.
