Frequently Asked Questions
How long is a session?
We do not charge by the hour, but by the session. Each session lasts roughly 90 minutes of which 30-35 minutes is the actual hypnosis session recorded onto a compact disk. Sometimes the discussion/intake prior to the hypnosis lasts a little longer, so we try to allow at least 2 hours for the first session. From there, sessions typically last 60-90 minutes total.
What does it cost?
See Cost page.
How many sessions will I need?
This depends on your particular challenge. The Cost page answers this question for multiple scenarios.
I went to a group hypnosis session in a hotel
Great! Many people get results from hotel group sessions. The hypnotists that travel and do this have many years of experience and usually have a proven method that works best for those scenarios.
The challenge that some people have with these could be: not comfortable around so many people, not comfortable in the hotel seating, difficult time relaxing and focusing, sometimes people near them are coughing or making other noises, or any similar happening.
Also, with group hypnosis, the hypnotist must keep things general. This is by design since s/he must speak to the entire group at the same time without saying something that may alienate our counteract with someone’s inclinations. The advantage of a one-on-one session is that the hypnotist can personalize the session.
So, we encourage people to try group hypnosis. It is definitely less expensive. Many people, truly skeptical and stubborn people, have stopped smoking after one session in a hotel. And if this doesn’t work or if you’d prefer a personalized session in the comfort of an office, then please text or call for an appointment or consultation 413-358-8285 or you can leave a message on the Contact Us page.

I am interested in hypnosis to quit smoking. I have never gone this route before. Can you give me some information related to cost, how many sessions are generally required, the hours you are available for this?
The majority of people we see have tried every other approach, with hypnosis being the only method that works for them. So, to answer your question:
One session costs $90 and three sessions is $180 ($60/session) up front. The vast majority of smoking cessation clients require only one session. Sometimes there are lingering issues or challenges, at which point we focus on those in the latter sessions.
Each session lasts roughly 90 minutes of which 30-35 is the actual recorded hypnosis session. Hours are flexible, with evening hours actually preferred since most people work during the day.
