DEEP DIVE THERAPY FAQ's
Top Frequently Asked Questions
Q1. How long does it take?
A. Each Deep Dive session lasts about 2 hours. Please block of at least 2 hours in your calendar to make sure you’re not rushed.
Q2. What does it feel like?
A. It feels different for different people. Some people feel a floating sensation, some do not. Others may feel sleepy, some do not. Most people feel relaxed and at ease. What’s most important is to know that how you feel isn’t an indicator of how effective it is. Regardless of what it feels like – it’s working. I promise!
Q3. Can I get 'stuck' in hypnosis?
A. No! You have complete control the whole time. You can talk, move your body, get a tissue, even get up and leave (I’ve had clients who had to stop to pee before!). On Zoom, if our call gets disconnected you may drift into sleep if you’re really relaxed, but eventually you’ll notice that you’re not hearing my voice and open your eyes.
Q4. How does it work?
A. Hypnosis is not magic – it’s science! It works by creating a burst of brain waves that are the same as when you’re in REM. That’s what allows you to access the subconscious mind. It’s very easy and anyone can do it.
Q5. What if I don’t 'go deep' enough?
A. Don’t worry about how deep you go. It's really not important. The depth of trance is not linked to results at all.
Q6. What if I think I already know the reasons behind my issue?
A. Even if you think you know the reason, in hypnosis you see it in a completely new way. This is what allows you to change the meaning of events and situations and then to change your beliefs. Many clients regress to scenes that are totally different than what they expected. Just relax and trust your subconscious mind will show you exactly what you need to see.
Q7. What if I go back to scenes that are painful or frightening?
A. If you go back to scenes from your life that are related to things like sexual or physical abuse, or other trauma, it’s important to remember that you are not reliving that scene, you are simply reviewing it and that you are safe. I will support you and create a safe space for you to express your emotions and heal – you’ll be OK.
There are 3 types of change from My Free to Be You Intensive Process – every person is different:
Immediate: You feel a massive shift right away – immediate changes in your physiology, thoughts and behaviors right in the session
Incremental: You see consistent shifts every day, or over time
Retroactive: You don’t see the shifts right away and then one day you suddenly look back and see all of the things that are different in your life.
