Preparing for Your Session
Things you need to know before your session.
Is This Your First Session with MHI?
When you schedule your first session, after your Free Strategy Call, there are a few questions you may have about how things will go, what is expected of you, etc.
If this is your first session with MHI then don’t worry, it’s going to be a lot of fun. Depending on your reason for seeking out Hypnotherapy, your first appointment could be anywhere from 1 to 2 hours in length. This allows us enough time to get everything taken care of, make sure all your paperwork is completed and really get a firm grasp on why you’re here, how hypnosis can help you, and how your journey may progress from there.
We will go over everything in more detail during your strategy call, but you may be required to do a few things or bring something in to your first session, for example, smokers may be required to bring in their last pack of cigarettes if they have not already disposed of them, as well as removing all smoking related items from their home, car, office etc. and refrain from smoking at all the day of their appointment.
If you’ve experienced hypnosis before with someone else, then great, please let us know how that worked out for you, what they did, what you liked, and what worked or didn’t work for you.
For those completely new to hypnosis, check out our FAQ page to see some commonly asked questions.
In your first session we will go over some basics, discuss hypnosis, how the mind works, go over your problems and how hypnosis will help, then we will test your suggestibility, guide you into hypnosis and assist you with making the positive changes that will help you reach your goals.
Zoom Video Calls
Your location must meet certain requirements, so that we can have an uninterrupted session, you should be free of interruptions during your session.
Additionally, you should have a very well lit area and be able to hook up your computer or other device to get a clear view of you at least waist up and your hands, and it should be operated hands free. Your internet should be fast enough that you get good video and audio signal without interruptions but we can work around that if it were to happen.
You should be joining the Zoom call 5-10 minutes before your appointment time so that you can make sure everything is working right without eating into your time.
There will also need to be a backup phone number in case the Zoom call goes down for some reason, due to internet or other technology related problems, so that we can continue the session via phone.
Information regarding the zoom access link can be found within the emails sent to you, which may include a link and a password to access the video call.
Please ensure you are hydrated, will not require a bathroom break and have a good solid chair to sit in (no beds).
