Frequently Asked Questions
HOW LONG DOES EACH THERAPY SESSION TAKE?
Hypnosis sessions are 90 minutes. Hypnobirthing sessions are 2.5 hours each.
WILL INSURANCE COVER THE COSTS?
Most of my clients are required to pay out of pocket. However, some insurances cover some of the costs. Please ask your insurance provider directly regarding their policies.
DO YOU OFFER SLIDING SCALE RATES?
Please feel free to contact me about a sliding scale policy if you feel you need hypnobirthing courses or hypnosis but are not able to afford my standard hourly fees.
CAN I BRING MY HUSBAND/PARTNER TO OUR HYPNOTHERAPY SESSIONS?
Yes! Please bring your birthing partner! Birthing partners play a very important role during the birth that should not be underestimated. In fact, one of the great strengths of hypnobirthing are the tools and methods that partners learn so they can support, help reduce pain, and guide a birthing mother.
CAN I BENEFIT FROM HYPNOBIRTHING IF I AM GOING TO HAVE A C-SECTION?
The tools and techniques learned in hypnobirthing to reduce fear and achieve a healthy parent-infant bond can also be applied during a planned or spontaneous c-section. If you are planning a c-section and desire a calm and beautiful birth for you and your baby, I can certainly tailor all hypnobirthing sessions to fulfill your individual needs.
DO YOU DO HOME VISITS OUTSIDE OF THE TÜBINGEN/REUTLINGEN AREA?
I am happy to do sessions in your home, even if you live outside of Reutlingen/Tübingen. I do ask for your understanding, however, that I will require an additional fee to cover the driving costs.
IS HYPNOSISRIGHT FOR ME?
“I do not think I can hypnotised?” Everybody who wants to can enjoy the benefits of hypnosis. Like all new things it can take time and practice, but so far I have not encountered anybody who did not start to profit from hypnosis by the second session.
“I do not think I will like being vulnerable or exposed while in a hypnotic state.” Hypnosis is a very relaxing and enjoyable to experience. At no time do participants lose control over their minds or bodies.
DO YOU TREAT CHILDREN/TEENS?
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure is a saying that certainly applies to the mental wellbeing of children and teenagers. Especially while the human brain is still developing and humans are at their most impressionable, it is important to take any concerns you may have about the health of your child seriously and to not hesitate to contact a professional with questions.
I have been working with children and teens on a counseling basis for over 10 years and enjoy working with young people immensely. Feel free to call and set up an initial session for your child at any time.
