Throughout the years of doing this, I get asked all sorts of questions about the services. So I decided to compile a list of the top 10 questions.

Please read further to discover what they are.

Q1: How much does it cost?

My usual response to this question is a tongue-in-cheek:

“How long is a piece of string?”.

Here’s why I say this:

I can’t give a price to something if I don’t have all the information about the issue or problem. It’s like putting a price tag to a computer that hasn’t been built yet.

You need to know which parts to use and what those components cost, in order to build a computer and stick a price tag to it. That’s how any result based therapist works.

My rates are offered on solution finding and problem solving. And this is achieved by a range of sessions. Typically, it’s between 3 to 5 sessions — however it could be more in some cases. Sometimes, it’s less.


Well, not all problems are the same. Just like not all people are the same.

We might share attributes, however we are fundamentally individuals with uniquely defined needs and desires that have been shaped over the years. Hence why it’s important we have a personalized phone or Skype consultation (strategy session) that matches with accordance of your wishes and expectations.

I believe I have earned the trust of my clients because my candid approach does provide honest and a reasonable expectations. This helps in determining if your problem is one I can assist with resolving. By taking my time in analyzing my clients needs, I’m able to conclude whether or not you’re a client who is a good fit for my services. Just as you are able to determine if I am a competent practitioner to help you resolve your issue.

In this way, rapport and value can be established.

As a heads up:

I only work with a selective number of clients in a given week. More specifically, I limit my practice to 4 clients per day.


Because I am wanting to give you the best results possible. I also prepare before each session by reviewing session notes to help understand the scope and nature of the problem. 

Therefore because of the time and energy invested, I limiting my practice in this way, Choosing only to work with individuals who are motivated enough to actively participate in accomplishing their goals.

And it’s paid off.

With over 70 Google reviews, 26 Facebook reviews (including more than 300 written positive comments!), it’s a tell-tale sign that what I do is effective and I’m able to produce consistent and proven results.

All it takes from you is to have an open mind and a willingness to explore if this is right for you.

This can be achieved by having a consultation. It’s ideal for those determined if this method (and my services) will work for them and if they do qualify in using my service.

As a side note: I have never been turned down because of my fees. I truly believe they are both reasonable, respectable and fair.

Last point here:

I do believe that all of my program are accumulative. In order words, each of these programs are structured in a way where each session, supports the next. That’s because each and every session build upon the last with reinforcements, tweaking and fine-tuning.


Any of my 3-5 session programs do include up to TWO of my mind-meditation mp3s ($27 value) & ANY of my mind-manuals ($20 value) for a total value of $47 FREE to you. These are all taken taken directly from my highly-praised ‘Secret to a Successful Life Skype Hypnosis Coaching Program’.

Depending on circumstances, I may include THREE mp3s if the client prefers to unconsciously absorb the insights between session through audio rather than reading.

Next question…

Q2: What happens during a call strategy session (consultation)?

I recommend in having a consultation because it allows for a meaningful conversation around your current situation and what you are ideally looking to achieve. My consultations are always meaningful conversations. It’s where I can provide a lot more depth in value to you. My hope that all of this gives you faith in my abilities and (potentially) in using my service.

That being said, we may end up concluding  that my services are not right for you at the time of our conversation. And maybe they never will be. That’s okay.

I firmly believe in leading with value.      

And I respect you far too greatly to be telling you any porky pies. As it doesn’t do me any favors nor does it do you any good!

That being said…

I’m fairly confident that just my initial strategic advice (in the initial phone call) will make the call itself extremely valuable and insightful for you. it’s all about providing a lot of clarity and insight into how you can reach your goals in the most expedient and low-cost, low-risk manner.

And if you embark on a journey with me, you’ll be able to experience something profoundly transformative even from just a single session. Once you sense that what I’m offering is a good match to what you’re looking for, we schedule a session that’s convenient to us both, then I proceed in taking a $100 deposit.

This secures your session booking as it also allows you to be more invested in your transformation. Like any life-changing decision: Change won’t happen from just making a decision, it’s being committed to the decision and then following through with it.

If somebody else is wanting to book for that time slot but they are unable due to that time slot being unavailable, well if you don’t show up to your appointment then not only that person misses out, you miss out too! Nobody wins and everyone loses. Okay, now onto the next question…

Q3: How much is your quit smoking session?

Another popular question. My response to this is as follows:

My quit smoking program is structured in a way where you have options in terms of support. So the fees are dependent on which program support you decide to take. In order to work out which one is best suited for you, we need to chat. On that phone call, I’ll ask a handful of questions, give you the options, then advise of my recommendation.

To put simply:

Think of this strategy session as an opportunity for me asking questions about you and your smoking habit — what you’ve tried in the past to quit, what has worked and what hasn’t, why it didn’t, what’s making hard for you to quit and why it’s important for you to quit smoking – just to name a few of the things we cover. It’s a chance for us to get a feel for one another, but most importantly, it’s where I can determine if you are going to be my next quit smoking success story.

So, it’s important we have this phone conversation to help determine if we are suited to work together.

Okay, next question…

Q4: Do Skype hypnotherapy or tele-sessions actually work?


In fact, half my my Google reviews and most of my Facebook reviews are from those conducted on Skype or over the phone. Here is something to think about if you do have any reservations about doing this over Skype or a phone call:

In my experience of doing this, Skype hypnosis sessions or tele-sessions are equally as effective, if not more than, traditional face-to-face sessions. That being said, if you still do have any reservations about having a session conducted over Skype, I’ll like you to think about the following statement:

It’s highly likely you’re contacting me because you read reviews from those who experienced results from a simple Skype or phone session.

To be 100% truthful about this, in my experience anyway… It makes absolutely no difference when you’re in another room (across town or in a different country) — the instance you close your eyes, you’ll experience the same high-quality hypnosis session as if you were in the same room with me.

Why? Because we will share that room together, from the comfort created inside your mind. You only need a private space and a bit of quiet time, free from interruptions.

In the categories of individual and personalized Skype or phone sessions, the actual experience themselves do vary, however I will like to classify them in the following manner. I call them the 3E’s of Skype hypnosis:  Extraordinary Emotional Experience. Many of my clients have actually left the session in a state of “hypno-high” or “body-bliss”.

However you respond, will certainly depend on a variety of factors; such as rapport, attention and environment.

I’m still skeptical about Skype hypnosis, can you convince me?

Well, truth be told, you’ll still be a skeptic even if I was in your area because it’s hypnosis, it has a a lot of misconceptions around it.

Some think it’s mystical whilst others believe it being comical or even dangerous because how it’s portrayed in entertainment shows and the media.

So quite naturally, there’s much skepticism about the treatment of hypnotherapy.

And that’s good!


Because being skeptic shows that you don’t just accept any bit of new information your way, you want to analyze and assess it, seeing how it can work for you.

And my most successful clients are the skeptics because they view hypnosis as being unclear in definition, however, there’s a willingness to learn and they have an open mind to explore possibilities.

So be a Skype hypnosis skeptic, that’s a good thing. Because my best responders have been the ones who are most skeptical 😉

Q5: What is the conscious mind?

The conscious mind is your “waking” mind and is what gives awareness to the things you focus on and helps you make decisions.

The conscious mind is thought to be able to deal with between 5-9 bits of information at a time. However, recent research has shown it may be much more limited than this, and only be able to handle 1 or 2 bits of information depending on their complexity. It’s the “here and now” mind that makes decisions, plans, helps you to take action and keeps you safe.

Q6: What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is simply communication with the unconscious mind, rather than the conscious mind. Whenever there is something new to learn, an emotion to be felt, a habitual behavior to be performed, or more data to process than the conscious mind is capable of handling – the unconscious mind takes over.

This mind-state change, from conscious to unconscious and back again, happens to everyone naturally all the time – you’re just usually not aware of it. A hypnotist simply uses this natural mind-state change for a specific purpose, generally to help someone create a positive change in their life. Although in stage hypnosis, it is usually done for fun and entertainment purposes – of course with the subject’s consent.

When a subject is intentionally put into hypnosis, they become highly responsive to the hypnotist’s suggestions. This is because hypnosis is able to bypass the critical part of the conscious mind and work directly with the unconscious mind, which is where deeply ingrained behaviors and beliefs are stored. This is why hypnosis is very effective at treating negative beliefs, fears and phobias, as well as healing and improving performance.

Q7: How does hypnotherapy work?

Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis in a therapeutic setting to help a subject overcome trauma, negative behaviors and emotions, habits, phobias and fears. It can also be used for healing and to enhance performance skills, self-esteem and confidence, in addition to many more things.

During hypnotherapy, a trained and certified hypnotherapist will use trance inductions to help a subject enter into a hypnotic trance and access their unconscious mind. It is here (before the subject returns to a normal waking state) that change takes place.

Q8: How do suggestions work?

During hypnosis, a suggestion is a directive given to a subject to carry out before, during or after trance. For example, during hypnosis, the suggestion may be to focus only on the hypnotist’s voice and allow it to take them deeper and deeper into trance.

An example of a suggestion after trance, may be the directive that when a subject has the urge to smoke again, they recall the disgusting taste it leaves in their mouth. This then makes them not want to have another cigarette.

Q9: What is trance?

A trance is the term that’s used to describe the state you enter when your unconscious mind is active, and your normal waking consciousness is bypassed, such as when you go into hypnosis.

Trance is a completely natural state, and is something you’ve most probably already experienced while doing something routine – like the dishes – and your mind wanders. Except when you’re hypnotized, this trance state is induced on purpose. Trance is simply another state of consciousness that lies somewhere between being awake and being asleep.

Q10: What is the unconscious mind? (Also known as the subconscious mind.)

The unconscious mind is the aspect of your mind that can process billions of bits of information simultaneously, and is the part of your mind that a hypnotist connects with during hypnosis. It is also responsible for controlling all of your bodily functions, such as keeping your heart beating, brain function, metabolism etc., as well as controlling all of your habitual programs, beliefs and emotions.

It is also the untapped reservoir of potentials, ideas and abilities you have yet to experience and is the part of your mind that is capable of making changes in your life. Changing and transforming old, no longer useful programs and concepts you may hold, and allowing you to have different perspectives on people and situations in your life. The unconscious mind is where creativity comes from, so you have the ability as a result of tapping into it, to make your future much brighter than your past.

For now, that’s it from me. I will do adding more FAQs in future so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, I look forward to hearing from you for our strategy session call 🙂

Take care and bye for now.
