Cost of Hypnotherapy Sessions in San Luis Obispo, CA or Remote

The cost of Life Coaching with Hypnotherapy (aka HypnoCoaching) sessions with Polly Mertens are:

  • We offer a complimentary 20 minute phone consultation to answer all of your questions and get more information about how hypnotherapy can achieve the results you want.
  • Thereafter your first hypnotherapy session will be $300 for approximately 90 minutes. The first session is the longest and is where Polly will take the deepest dive into the background of your concerns so she can learn as much as possible about the past and present situation.  This is a valuable session because it really lays the foundation for the therapy treatment plan. Because Polly’s coaching and hypnotherapy work spans a great many areas of expertise, a first session can sometimes be 1.5 – 2.5 hours, depending upon the complexity of the work involved. 
  • ‘Out of the discovery in the first session, Polly will build a treatment plan for sessions that follow.  All other sessions are at a rate of $200 for 60 minutes each
  • Clients average 3 – 6 sessions and their presenting issue is resolved.  Some issues or conditions are more deeply engrained and involve 12 – 16 sessions (most engrained habits, patterns or areas of new beliefs such as inner confidence or self-esteem) or up to 6-12 months (common for weight loss and eating disorders).
  • Most clients find the weekly sessions to create the greatest momentum in order to realize their desired outcomes. We also offer bi-weekly sessions for those working within a budget.  

What to Expect During Your Hypnosis Sessions

The first session consists of four components:

  1. Discovering: we’ll discuss what specific challenges you are currently experiencing, what your understanding is of what’s kept you from achieving what you want (if you know) and what your desired outcomes are from hypnotherapy. Where are you and where do you want to be.
  2. Educating: we’ll explain in a very easy-to-understand way how hypnosis works, how hypnotherapy will help you achieve the results for your specific issue, and what you should expect to feel and experience while in hypnosis. Before we do anything you’ll be very clear what hypnosis is and what it isn’t and how it works.
  3. Assessing and Hypnotizing: in order to achieve the most significant and powerful changes with your subconscious mind, it is essential to understand how your mind individually uniquely takes in suggestions. By answering a series of questions we will quickly understand what type of custom hypnotic suggestions will make the most positive and impactful changes in your mind.
  4. Strategic Coaching: clients who achieve the most lasting and profound changes are those who reinforce the work we do during our sessions back in their life through repetition and reinforcement. We’ll coach you on specific processes and techniques you can utilize in your everyday life to deepen the work.

On-going sessions consist of 2 components:

  • In depth consultation to assess how you have been progressing since your last session, including a conversation about areas we can continue to fine tune and reinforce.
  • To make lasting changes that last a lifetime, our ongoing hypnotherapy sessions focus on reinforcing and deepening the work that would best benefit you for where you are at that moment.

For our clients who prefer to have in-person sessions in their location house call sessions are available at $500 per one-hour session.
