As a part of our hypnosis session protocol, prior to your first hypnosis session we will be request that you answer our Confidential Questionnaires. We ask you to fill these out in advance so that you and your hypnotist can be well prepared to help you at your first hypnotherapy session. Gathering information with our Intake Form, Making Changes and our Primary Sensory Mode Test not only helps us prepare for a productive session, but is also of great value to you. As you respond to our questions, you will have a more thorough understanding of the challenge(s) that you have been struggling with and can start the process of change even before your first appointment begins.
To ensure optimal success and outstanding results we take a holistic approach to helping all of our clients and ask you to be prepared to implement basic, yet important healthy changes in your lifestyle to achieve your goals. We will coach you on your sleep habits, diet and nutrition as well as you weekly exercise routine, all in an effort to build you a solid foundation which will support your therapy.

Upon your arrival, you will find a comfortable and professional office. (You should know that we can provide special privacy arrangements for our celebrity clients, if requested.) You will begin your session promptly, with little or no wait time.
Prior to experiencing the profoundly relaxed state of hypnotic trance, your hypnotist will review your Confidential Questionnaires with you and learn more about you. This thorough talk with you will help your hypnotherapist discover any impediments that might have hindered you from achieving your goals in the past and living the life you desire. During this conversation your hypnotist will also explain how hypnosis works and answer any questions you may have about the whole process. At the end of the conversation your hypnotist will be able to use his/her extensive experience and flexibility to tailor the hypnosis suggestions to your particular personality, lifestyle and needs.
Since the Advanced Hypnosis Center is on Fifth Avenue it takes just a minute to walk into Central Park, if you like, in the Spring, Summer and Fall, when the weather is permitting , the first part of your hypnosis session may be made walking through a path in Central Park. This area of the park is particularly beautiful, featuring mature trees with thick foliage and lovely landscaping with many colorful flowers. Over the years, many of our clients have thoroughly enjoyed taking this relaxing walk, while he gathered important information about their present life situation and the challenges they are seeking to resolve through hypnosis.
After this conversation, as you are seated in a comfortable chair in the office, you will be gently guided into a relaxing trance, in which you will be more able to accept into your mind, as you wish, those ideas and beliefs which will propel you to a new life, overcoming and resolving your challenges. While in this trance, you can come out of it anytime you wish to resume regular consciousness, but most people find that they enjoy it and want to stay in this stress-free, peaceful state. You will consciously hear what your hypnotist is saying and can accept or reject any of the positive suggestions they will be making to you. With the empathetic guidance of your hypnotist you will quickly and easily make the changes you desire.
After your session, for additional support and guidance, your hypnotherapist will email to you positive affirmations, supportive self hypnosis audios and some of Jeffrey Rose’s own published health articles. In addition, as an integral supplement to your hypnosis session, Jeffrey Rose, Dr. Ricartty Trinidad and our staff will be available by phone after your session, if there are any further issues you wish to discuss.
