Q. My audio download isn't working on my iPhone. A. To listen to listen to the audio download on your Apple iPhone, you must first download it to your computer and then move it to iTunes. We know this is annoying, and we apologize. All of our audio recording work with no extra steps, on all other devices and operating systems. Q. What is Guided Imagery? A. In brief: guided Imagery is the use of stories and verbal suggestions to guide the mind through sensations and visualizations in order to bring about a desired physical and/or emotional response, for example, to calm anxiety or to build self-esteem.
Q. How does Guided Imagery Work? A. Guided Imagery works by inviting the participant to engage their senses to imagine positive outcomes. This could include a calmer physical and emotional state or a specific issue.
Q. What is the difference between Guided Imagery and Hypnotherapy A. Both of these relaxation modalities encourage a shift in the subconscious where it is believed, all of our beliefs, thoughts, actions and reactions are based. Guided imagery engages the participants senses to visualize positive outcomes, with a "wakeful" state of relaxation where hypnotherapy uses a more relaxed state, to encourage the positive ideas, beliefs and outcomes at a deeper subconscious level. Because our hypnotherapy recordings do encourage a deeper state of relaxation we have designed them primarily for home / bedtime use. Q. Why do the books cost what they do? A. The average hypnotherapy session can cost anywhere form $75 - $400 per hour. Each of our books comes complete with a minimum of one written hypnotherapy script and two hypnotherapy audio recordings. Therefore, our books are priced to include the hypnotherapy components, along with the regular costs of production and publication.
Q. How often should my child listen to the scripts? A. Repetition is key when we are trying to change habits, therefore, you cannot overuse these scripts. Whether encouraging positive thinking or discouraging undesired behaviour, our goal is to shift habitual thinking. Each time the suggestions are given to the subconscious, unwanted thought patterns are discouraged and replaced with the positive habit that we desire. Most Hypnotherapy practitioners encourage clients to engage in hypnotherapy no less than once per week for the first 4 to 6 weeks, as this gives a solid foundation of change. After the initial 4 to 6 weeks or when the behaviour has changed, the time between sessions increases.
Q. My child has no emotional challenges. What can your products offer? A. There are so many benefits with engaging in hypnotherapy or meditation, just the habit of taking time to relax both mind and body is valuable. Adding to that, ending the day with a positive note to affirm strength, success, empathy etc., we are building the habits we hope our young people will take with them right through to adulthood. Q. Why are the scripts written for bed time? A. We strive to provide tools that are simple and very user friendly. By incorporating our products into the bedtime routine we are utilizing the natural cycle of the slowing of brain waves, while offering busy parents tools that fit nicely with most schedules. It is a wonderful way to move into a very restful, natural sleep.
Q. Will my child lose control (like in a hypnotist’s stage show)? A. No! There are many levels of trance and what you see at a stage show is a very deep trance. For the purpose of hypnotherapy and gentle suggestion to the subconscious, it is very unnecessary to facilitate a trance of that depth. They will remain in control and if they need to move or to become fully alert they can do so easily.
Q. Can my child get stuck in a hypnotic trance? A. Never. The slowing of brain waves is a natural state, if the suggestion to wake never came your brain waves would simply slow down even further to a natural sleep state. As an alternative, when your subconscious notices that the session has finished, brain activity will quicken and you will become fully awake.
Q. If my child is aware during whole script or remembers what is said, does that mean it isn't working? A. It is a misconception that if you are aware of your surroundings or remember any of the session that you are not hypnotized and therefore the session is a failure. As long as you are relaxing, your brain waves have slowed and the subconscious is absorbing more than when fully awake. It is thought that children under 7 do not have a fully developed filter between conscious and subconscious, making it even easier for them to absorb suggestion.
Q. If my child does not remember any of the script does this mean that they have simply fallen asleep and it isn’t working? A. During hypnotherapy the conscious mind may wander and the participant might remember bits and pieces of the session, or none of it at all, but the subconscious is still listening.
Q. Are these scripts appropriate for adults too? A. Absolutely. As with anything our children engage in, it is beneficial for caregivers to know the messages, engage in conversation to support change and encourage healthy habits. Adults may find some of the language simpler than other hypnotherapy or guided meditation scripts but the messages are wonderful for everyone. Please take the time to relax as you listen – NO MULTI-TASKING! We cannot emphasize enough the danger of listening to these products while driving or performing tasks that require your complete attention.
Q. What if my healthcare provider tells me that hypnotherapy is not a good idea for my child? A. Listen to your healthcare provider. Hypnosis is a powerful tool and is not appropriate for some disorders.
Q. What if there is no physical, emotional, or medical reason, but my health care provider doesn’t believe in hypnotherapy? A. Although hypnosis has been around for centuries, both in and out of the medical field, it is still considered unconventional. Our healthcare providers are people who are most certainly entitled to their opinion, and as such, be sure you are well informed on the reasons why someone would discourage you from using our products before proceeding. We encourage a solid dialogue to ensure the well–being and safety of your child.
