People often have questions before scheduling a hypnosis session. Here are some common questions:

How do I set up an appointment? 
Email us at HessHypnotherapy.com or call (813) 820-1515 in Hillsborough County or (727) 423-3675 in Pinellas County. 
Office hours are flexible and include evenings and weekends.

How long do the sessions last?
Allow about 90-120 minutes for the first session and about 60-75 minutes for additional sessions.

What is the cost per session and what are your payment options?
I always want to speak with my prospective clients before they schedule so that I make sure I answer all their questions. Please call me for more information and rates and to make sure hypnotherapy is a great choice for you. You may pay for your session(s) with either cash, personal checks, debit or credit cards.  

How many sessions will I need?
The techniques and methods we use at Hess Hypnotherapy are very targeted, and therefore this is not long term therapy. As a general rule, the ethical aim is to keep the number of visits to a necessary minimum. While you should see results even after one session, and often the results are significant, we strongly recommend 3 to 4 sessions for more lasting results particularly if you have not experienced hypnosis in the past.  For more complex and deep-rooted issues more sessions are recommended. Some people like the process so much they choose to continue and work on other things, or simply use regular hypnosis sessions as an ongoing health and wellness program, while others find they get everything they need in a few sessions. Sessions are typically scheduled about 1 week apart.

Will you record my sessions?

All sessions are recorded and include a free custom MP3 audio recording. The recordings are invaluable for you to listen to at home for reinforcement and lasting results. Many people love them so much they listen every night at bedtime!  You will have the recording in your e-mail before you even leave my office!

Will my insurance cover visits?
Some health insurance plans do cover some sessions like smoking cessation. Sessions may also be covered by your flexible spending account.  Our Hypnosis Stop Smoking Program is also an approved medical expense with the Federal government. The IRS will let you write off your stop smoking program on your Federal income taxes! Click here for more information. Hess Hypnotherapy does not bill insurance companies. Payment is expected at the time of your hypnosis session. Our office is happy to provide a receipt that can be submitted with a claim to your insurance company.

Can I bring someone with me to my appointment?
You are welcome to bring someone with you, but please keep in mind that observers are not allowed because of possible distractions. There is a comfortable waiting area at the office with reading materials as well as plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. Wireless internet is also available if needed-just ask for the password.

What will I experience during my first visit?
Initial consultation and intake. Your first session is a full 90 minutes so that we can do a thorough intake. Your initial hypnosis session will be an extremely pleasant experience which consists of three distinct parts. First, I will explain what hypnosis is, how it works, and what you will experience. Second, we will discuss your goals or issue, and formulate a program which will most rapidly assist you in achieving your desired goals and results. Any questions you may have will be answered as well. Third, once you are absolutely comfortable, then the actual hypnosis session will begin. You will be guided into a very deep state of physical and mental relaxation. You will feel very relaxed, yet remain alert mentally. You will be aware of everything going on around you. Suggestions for the changes you desire will then be given to your powerful subconscious mind. These suggestions will enter your subconscious and become a part of you. The old programming, which was keeping you from achieving your goals or which was causing your problem is removed, allowing you to accomplish your goals. Most clients describe hypnosis as an enjoyable experience and leave their sessions feeling much better than when they arrived. Most people find it inspiring, emotionally fulfilling, and transforming and feel better than they have in a very long time.
