Getting the hypnosis help you need – affordably! While some people only need a single hypnosis session to achieve their desired results, most people can benefit from multiple hypnosis sessions or at least a couple of follow-ups on the single session. However, multiple hypnosis sessions can be cost prohibitive for many. Therefore, to provide the best service to my clients, I have created affordable “follow-up” sessions. This article discusses the new “follow-ups,” and the reasoning behind them, as well as reminding everyone of the discounts I offer for bundles of four or six regular sessions.
Using hypnosis to help change a behavior, create a new habit, or address an issue can be a quick and effective tool, with some people getting complete results after only one session. However, not everyone gets the same results from a single session. Nor does the same person get the same results for different topics. Sometimes more than one session is indicated; other times just checking in and touching base will help reinforce the original session and is sufficient to get the desired results. With this in mind, in addition to the discounts I already offer for multiple full hypnosis sessions, I have created a new “follow-up” session. A follow-up session is exactly that, a follow-up to check on progress, make suggestions, etc. on a single, full, hypnosis session. Its purpose is to make sure the desired results from the initial session are being obtained. Follow-up sessions are 30-45 minutes in length and may or may not include additional hypnosis. If they do include additional hypnosis it will not be recorded.
One result of adding the new “follow-up” sessions is that my pricing structure has gotten a little more complicated, or least it looks that way on the surface. I still offer a single session for both new and existing clients (currently priced at $150). In addition, I now offer a single session plus two 30-45 minute follow-ups (currently priced at $260). I also offer the two 30-45 minute follow-ups as an add-on for clients who come in for a single session and later decide the follow-ups are a good idea (currently priced at $110 for both). The follow-ups add-on can be purchased any time up to fourteen days following the single session.
Tobacco cessation sessions are a little different. I’ve found that people who come in for help to quit smoking and/or stop chewing require a little more time for the session. Therefore, tobacco cessation sessions are 2-hours, for both new and existing clients. I offer hypnosis for tobacco cessation in three formats: a single 2-hour session (currently priced at $200), a single 2-hour session with two 30-45 minute follow-ups (currently priced at $310), and a single 2-hour session with unlimited follow-ups for one year from the date of the initial session (currently priced at $350.) I also offer the two 30-45 minute follow-ups as an add-on for persons who come in for a single session and later decide the follow-ups are a good idea (currently priced at $110 for both). The follow-ups add-on can be purchased any time up to fourteen days following the single session.
Follow-up sessions are more than sufficient for certain topics/issues, but for others multiple full sessions are required. To help make this affordable I offer two types of discounts. The first is a “package,” where you pay for three full sessions at the current regular price, in advance, and receive a fourth session free. This results in a 25% savings. The second type of discount is a “contract.” A contract is a written agreement where one commits to two sessions a month for three months (total of six sessions) and receives 1/3 off the current single session price for all six sessions. (A “contract” is currently priced at $600) The contract may be paid for in one of two ways, all at once or $200 up front, and two monthly payments of $200 each, made by ACH debit.
While I endeavor to keep things as simple as possible I have found that in order to meet the needs of the people who come to me I need to provide a lot of options. The number one goal I have is to help as many people as possible while still being able to make a living. I believe my current pricing structure helps me to do just that, to help others get the hypnosis they need – affordably!
