Hypnosis & Changework: Your first session

Your problems don’t stand a chance!

Problems don't stand a chance

Before you start you first session, there are a few things to take care of.

If you wish, you can try the “Can I be hypnotized ?” Quiz


Step 1: Payment method

First, make sure you can afford the services. See the Session Price & Payment Page or look below.  You can pay directly by credit card, or by sending a Moneygram by mail. If paying by Moneygram, I will only be able to schedule your session after receiving payment.


If paying by credit card, please PAY AFTER I HAVE AGREED TO YOUR REQUEST. 

Step 2: Messaging software

Online sessions are done on Yahoo Messenger. You can Download the Yahoo Messenger standalone client for Windows, Android or iOS, use the Yahoo Web Version  directly in your Internet Browser. Either way, you’ll need to set up a Yahoo account to connect.  My yahoo ID is mind_mistress and you should send me a test message before the session.


Phone sessions are typically done over Skype (click here to go to their site and download the application).  We can start on Yahoo Messenger if you like, since I don’t charge for the pre-chat time, and when we’re both ready to start you can make the call. If you prefer to make a regular phone call, make sure you have a calling card or long distance plan that includes Canada. International calls without a call plan can be extremely expensive, and Skype is entirely free. Skype is available on Windows, Mac, Linux, xBox, mobile devices, tablets and some smart TVs. 

Step 3. Asking for a session

For questions, you can go to the Contact page. If you’re not sure whether I do the sort of thing you want, it’s easier to ask first than to fill out the form.

If you already have Yahoo Messenger and know what you want, please click a the links below to open the relevant Request Form. Use the  “Can I be hypnotized ?” Quiz first because I’ll be asking you about your results in the form.

Each one hour appointment is given two hours, to allow for setup time and chatting. Only change-work time is charged. 11am and 11pm appointments are possible but inconvenient. They cost double the normal session price.


4. Discuss your session

  1. After receiving your form, I will generally reply with “Okay, your request is good,” or we may want to discuss your request in more detail over email before setting an appointment.
  2. Scheduling: I’ll offer you an appointment based on the available dates and times you specified in the form, as long as you specified those for the next week or two.
  3. Pay, using the payment buttons above. Your payment reserves your time slot, and until you pay anyone else can request your time slot. Payment should be made at least a few days before the session if at all possible, but at the very least 24 hours before. If you have not paid 24 hours before your session, I will assume that the session is not happening. 

Be aware that the first session is always one hour, and if hypnosis is chosen (as opposed to NLP for instance), it is used to teach trance skills and set the trigger word for going into trance quickly on following sessions. The next sessions will have more of what you asked for, because you’ll be able to go rapidly back into trance when the hypnotist says your trigger word during a briefer induction. Half-sessions are possible for coaching, but not for hypnosis. Except for extremely good trance subjects, it usually takes a good 10-15 minutes to get back into a deep trance. This means half-sessions aren’t very cost effective for the client. Extended sessions of 2-3 hours are possible, even necessary in some cases, but may be taxing on the subject. It all depends on what we’re doing.

5. Show up for your session!

Whether by phone or online, I expect you to message me on Yahoo Instant Messenger at your appointment time, unless we’ve made other arrangements by email. See Step 2 for instruction on that. If it’s by phone, we’ll then go either to phone or Skype.

I AM ALWAYS INVISIBLE ON YAHOO INSTANT MESSENGER. Please send a message at your appointed time to mind_mistress and I’ll answer. When I’m visible, I get inundated with messages. If you want to talk, just message, and I’ll answer when I go online, but that’s generally only when I have an online session.

And if you can’t make it, please advise as early as possible!
