You might even go both ways, and that’s okay, too. There are some reallystrong perspectives as to the safety and effectiveness of virtual hypnosis.Does the research support virtual hypnosis?

Let’s quickly rewind to 2015 when I reached out to a colleague that Itrusted for hypnosis. At the time, Skype was the only game in town.Because my internet wasn’t great, we resorted to our cell phones. Myoutcome was great, but it wasn’t long and I forgot about how effectivehypnosis over the phone was.

In 2018 a past client from out of state. She is a high hypnotizable, so Iagreed to virtual sessions with her. We had outstanding results. At thattime I still didn’t realize the potential of virtual sessions. In mid-2019 I tookthe plunge and went exclusively to virtual hypnosis. This change opened upan extensive business building opportunity.

The benefit of in-person sessions is the level of connection and building areputation within the local community. For a lot of potential clients theidea of doing anything virtually might be out of the question. Some reasonsclients may require in-person sessions is lack of privacy, adequate internetconnection, or they may not even have a computer. In less populated areasinternet connection and trust are the biggest hurdles.

The downside of in-person sessions is the time cost to the client due todriving, traffic and time off of work. There may be more time spent onrapport and trust building for in-person sessions. There is also increasedsession costs and possible decreased profit margin. You the hypnotist haveto recoup office overhead so you are running a profitable business.
