A little more information about us
Rhode Island Advanced Hypnosis Center is a private clinical hypnosis provider who has helped over 200,000 people change and improve their lives since 1995. We are the only Advanced Hypnosis Provider in Rhode Island, and one of only a handful located in the New England area. We are are fully trained and certified in many different areas of hypnosis including some that are not offered in standard hypnosis training courses, like Gastric Band Hypnosis, Regression Hypnosis, and Child Hypnosis.
What makes Advanced Hypnotherapy different?
Approximately 97% of all hypnosis providers use short-term relief programs in their practice. The reason is that they are quick and easy for the provider, as they are not very detailed. However, these methods can take up to 20 sessions to work, and they usually only provide a temporary fix. Advanced hypnosis is a deeper method that combines advanced tools, scientific technology, and a client centered process to get to the root cause of an issue or problem. In short - it's a more detailed method so it actually resolves issues faster, and the results are permanent.
Can I get Advanced Hypnosis elsewhere?
Yes - there are other advanced hypnosis providers, but not in Rhode Island. Advanced Hypnosis is actually a specific method of performing hypnosis that requires special training and education - and not every hypnosis provider is trained in this area.
Can I be hypnotized?
While everyone is capable of being hypnotized, statically speaking, hypnosis is effective for approximately 90 to 94% of all people. The fact is, there are essential characteristics that make some people more hypnotizable than others. We always conduct a proper hypnotizability evaluation to ensure that hypnosis is best for our clients, before they come in for a session.
Does insurance pay for hypnosis?
Although hypnosis is recognized by the American Medical Association, insurance companies have yet to catch with the times. So unfortunately, insurance does not pay for hypnosis, even if your counselor or psychologist uses it in his or her practice. However, some insurence providers may reimburse you for certain services. You will want to check this information beforehand.
How much will hypnosis cost me?
Unlike some hypnosis providers, we don't post generic per session rates on our website because it is misleading and unethical. This is because the amount that a hypnosis provider charges is different than the total cost of hypnosis. For example, we could list $100 per session on our website but what if it takes you 6 sessions to change your life? Therefore, we instead offer a free online evaluation that provides details about our services and it also provides a REAL estimate instead of generic per session rates. Read More
How many sessions will I need?
Unlike traditional hypnosis, which can take up to 20 sessions or more, Advanced Hypnosis usually resolves most issues in only 2 to 4 sessions.
What is your client success rate?
It's extremely important to understand that hypnosis success rates can and do vary. Success by hypnosis is dependent on many varaibles including attending sessions in a timely manner and using all provided hypnosis tools as directed. However, can say that on average, 90% to 94% of our clients reach their intended goal within the projected timeframe.
Do you offer any type of guarantee?
While it's unethical to guarantee results, we believe you should know approximately how long your hypnosis therapy might take under normal circumstances. Therefore, based on similar situations and experience, we will calculate a realistic estimate of how many sessions a client will need to accomplish his or her goal. If you ever need a re-inforcement session past this point, we will conduct it free of charge. Read More
What will my session feel like or be like?
Hypnosis is simply a form of relaxation, so you cannot see, smell, or taste it while it is happening. However, while you are in a relaxed state of mind, you are more open to positive suggestions and assertions. During hypnosis you will feel very relaxed - similar to when your attention is focused on a good book or a television program. It is not sleep and you will typically be very aware of everything that occurs. You are also 100% in control at all times.
Will I ever return to my issue or problem in the future?
While most clients do not, it really does depend on the situation. For example, if we assist you with a fear of dogs, and you get bit by a dog a few weeks later, you CAN develop another fear of dogs. Also, if you smoke that one cigarette just to test if the hypnosis worked, you CAN become a smoker again. Therefore, although you will leave our office changed, hypnosis cannot and does not make you immune to every single possible future situation, temptation, or mishap.
Can I combine other tools with hypnosis?
Sure. While hypnosis is normally all you need, there is certainly nothing wrong with taking steps on your own to increase your chances of success. If you are currently using or plan to use additional tools like personal or physical therapy, weight loss products/services, or stop smoking aids, we will take measures to ensure that your hypnosis program supports the use of additional tools. Just be sure to let us know ahead of time so we can factor it into your session(s).
Why do group hypnosis sessions fail?
Group hypnosis has proven to work for less than 2% of those in attendance. The primary reason it fails is because it is often very generic in nature. With a group session it is impossible to address each individual's specific needs, habits, and triggers. It is also impossible in a group setting for all attendees to achieve the appropriate level of relaxation for hypnosis to work. Because of their extremely low success rate, group hypnotists actually do more harm than good to the professional field of clinical hypnotherapy. Simply put, people become discouraged when the group session fails, and this adds one more person to the mix of people who falsely believe that hypnosis doesn't work, or that they cannot be hypnotized.
How about using free hypnosis items off the internet?
The old saying comes to mind - you get what you pay for. To use a little common sense, ask yourself why would someone simply give something away that has any value, benefit, or worth whatsoever? Now, don't get us wrong - we love free hypnosis stuff and even share it from time to time. However, we do it more for entertainment reasons, not as a serious aid to assist folks in accomplishing goal(s). Also, we evaluate it beforehand to ensure that it is safe. So if it's free what's the harm or risk? The more serious problem is that while hypnosis is generally safe (when done properly), taking chances with a free hypnosis item online is not a smart choice because you don't really know who made it. If hypnosis is not done correctly, it could do more damage than good. So if you end up having to hire a clinical hypnosis professional just to undo the damage that a free hypnosis item caused, was it really worth it?
