Set Yourself Up for
Success with Hypnosis
Most of our clients achieve success largely because we limit our practice at ChangeWorks Hypnosis Center.Are you ChangeWorks' next success story?
We don't work with clients:
• Who want to passively have someone "fix" them.
• Who are looking for a short-term boost rather than a long-term solution.
• Who are "on the fence" about getting their problem solved.
We look forward to working with you if:
• You're ready to actively participate in getting your goal accomplished.
• You're ready to learn and change to achieve your outcome.
• You want a natural, drug-free solution to your issue.
|"Hypnosis is a form of highly focused attention. It's actually a way of enhancing people's control."
We offer a free half hour consultation, either in the office or over the phone, to answer any questions you may have and to create a session plan specific for you.
A survey of psychotherapy literature comparing the efficacy of different methods by Alfred Barrios, PhD revealed the following recovery rates:
Because of this and a preponderance of research studies clearly supporting the increased short and long-term effectiveness of multiple session hypnotherapy protocols of 6 sessions or more, and our own extensive client experience, we at ChangeWorks advocate a minimum package of 6 sessions to ensure the best results for you.
For those who prefer to pay session by session, that option and cost is listed below. Most of our clients take advantage of our package discounts and therefore pay much less than the individual session rate.
Individual sessions: $225 (X 6 sessions = $1350; X 9 = $2025; X12 = $2700)
All packages must be paid in full on the initial session to qualify for the discount, otherwise they will be treated as single sessions and billed accordingly. Unused package sessions are non-refundable, but can be transferred to others.
Do we take insurance? No, although some insurance programs, wellness plans and HSAs will reimburse you for hypnosis services. You will need to contact your program administrator for your coverage details. However, before you use your insurance, you should be aware of the risks, hidden costs and confidentiality issues involved. For a thorough explanation, please click and read here: Do you take insurance?

As you make your choice in a hypnotherapist, we encourage you to consider these issues: the training and background of your hypnotherapist; their philosophy regarding client-centered work (fitting the technique to the client, rather than the client to the technique), and overall professionalism of the practice. Considerations of price, while understandable, should be secondary. If you are looking for the cheapest hypnotherapist, you may as well return to your search now. We are not the cheapest on a per-session basis. However, because of our training and approach, the majority of our clients achieve their desired results in 6 sessions, and achieve permanent results, eliminating the future costs of continued frustration and additional therapies or doctor visits. For more information on the ChangeWorks approach, see the page about Our Methods.
When you make an appointment that time period will be reserved for you, and for you only. We do not over-book in case of cancellations and rescheduled appointments. If you need to cancel an appointment, we ask for 24 hours advance notice. If you don’t cancel with at least 24 hours notice, or simply no-show, please understand that not only results in lost income to me, but wastes a session that could have been used by someone else.
We charge $90 for last-minute cancellations and no-shows (genuine medical emergencies excepted, of course).
How Effective is Hypnosis? A Direct Cost Comparison
A Survey of Psychotherapy Literature by Alfred A. Barrios, PhD. Revealed the Following Recovery Rates:
Psychoanalysis: 38% recovery after 600 sessions
Behavior Therapy: 72% recovery after 22 sessions
Hypnotherapy: 93% recovery after 6 sessions
(source: Alfred A. Barrios, PhD)
The per session cost of these services is very comparable; on average $150-$250 per session, depending on the provider and area of the country. Taking the low side of the range for traditional therapies, and even the high side of the range for hypnosis, at $250 per session, the cost comparison to receive the study's reported levels of recovery shows:
Psychoanalysis: $150 x 600 sessions = $90,000
Behavior Therapy: $150 x 22 sessions = $3,300
Hypnotherapy: $250 x 6 sessions = $1,500
ChangeWorks rate for 6 sessions: $165 x 6 = $990
Even with insurance coverage, you can see that your co-pay to achieve the levels of recovery as reported by this meta-analysis study can easily be well above that of the direct cost of hypnotherapy. And this does not take into account that the rate of recovery is significantly higher in a much shorter course of sessions with hypnotherapy.
In case you find the concept of 600 sessions of psychoanalysis out of the norm, we have worked with many people who, prior to coming to hypnotherapy, had traditional therapy once a week or once every other week for 5 years and even as much as 8 years. Eight years of therapy sessions weekly is 416 sessions! At a typical $20 co-pay, that's an out-of-pocket investment of $8,320!
