Ninth Wave Coaching & Hypnosis

Types of Services

Sessions

All sessions are discussed in advance with the client, and may include coaching, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) techniques and/or the induction of hypnosis, as well as related methods and principles to help clients discover their inner strengths and abilities. Often my clients benefit from my integrated approach, combining coaching, NLP techniques and hypnosis. Services will commence after the client’s final agreement/consent and will be according to the client’s preference and in accordance with my training and experience.

Like anything “new”, it is a learning process and we take the time to recognize your own learning style and unique pace of change. I approach each individual with curiosity, openness and one-on-one, personalized attention. My goal is to achieve the client’s desired outcome(s) by developing positive thinking and feelings and redirecting undesirable habits and behavior patterns.

Private Coaching Sessions

All private coaching sessions are held in my office or via telephone. Most private clients have a weekly or bi-weekly visit or call for an hour. This is a typical scenario, however; when we first meet, we can set your frequency and length of sessions according to your needs and schedule.

Coaching begins in the first session. Prior to your first meeting with me, you will have completed any initial homework assignment and any necessary paperwork. It is important that you bring this completed material with you to the first session so we can maximize our time together. If we are conducting sessions via telephone, I will ask you to prepare the materials and scan and e-mail or mail (via the U.S. Post Office) to me, in time for our first session.

Your coaching continues between your sessions for maximum effectiveness. I will assign you homework on an ongoing basis so that you may take concepts and practices away from your sessions and apply them to your life. We can also communicate via email between sessions.

Research shows that it takes 8-10 hours to begin internalizing the key benefits of coaching. My clients typically schedule 10 sessions — the first session will consist of a 90-minute initial consultation. This will be followed by a program of private 60-minute sessions during which we will partner to explore individual needs, goals and direction.

For Clients with Medical Conditions

Hypnosis and NLP techniques are considered complementary to mainstream treatments and at times may be an adjunct to a doctor’s treatment and/or to assist treatment goals. It does not replace medical directives.

Do not discontinue any medication prescribed or change or disregard directives by your physician without talking with your doctor first, even if your symptoms improve.

In some cases, if there is some current, ongoing medical or psychological treatment, an authorization and/or clearance from your treating physician will be required before any services can be provided.

I am not medically trained nor do I hold myself out to the public as a therapist or counselor other than being a professional coach, NLP practitioner and hypnotist.
