Please note that Norman Plotkin Inc. does not guarantee the effectiveness of treatment in any individual cases.
Hypnotherapists work with vocational and avocational self-improvement and are not licensed by the State of California as healing arts practitioners. Some conditions may require a medical or psychological referral.
It is important to understand that hypnotherapy and the other associated techniques are not a 'magic pill'. Therapy requires that the client be committed to change and be prepared to make the effort to make that change a reality. You may be asked to listen to audio recordings which will be provided for you, or to complete other tasks between session. These are designed to help you gain the most benefit and not doing these is likely to reduce the effectiveness of your results.
There is, of course, a considerable variation in the difficulty of the various problems and there is no general rule which makes it possible to say how much improvement can be achieved and in how much time.
The simpler problems can sometimes be overcome in one or two sessions - On average I see clients for three or four sessions. I am committed to helping you as swiftly and effectively as possible.
I may well be able to give you a fair assessment of how much improvement you can expect and how many sessions may be needed by the end of the initial consultation but if the problem is more complex then we will jointly review progress from time to time.
