Hypnotherapy (hypnosis) is the use of intense concentration and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness. Sometimes referred to as a trance. In this naturally occurring state, you can focus on specific thoughts or tasks.
Hypnosis is considered an aid to psychotherapy (counseling or therapy). In the hypnotic state, you can explore painful thoughts, feelings, and memories. These negative experiences might have been hidden from your conscious mind. This is due to the brain's defense mechanisms. In addition, hypnosis can help you to perceive some things differently. Like blocking an awareness of pain.
Hypnotherapy uses this relaxed state to explore possible psychological root causes of a disorder or symptom. Such as traumatic past events or painful negative experiences. Subsequently resulting in the integration of these experiences to help promote healing.
Finally, the hypnotic state allows you to be more open to discussion and suggestions.

First, you will be told the process of hypnosis. Including reviewing your treatment goals. Then you will be guided by talk and descriptive imagery to create a sense of relaxation, security, and well-being.
Next, when you’re relaxed and in a receptive state, suggestions will be made for ways for you to achieve your goals. You may also be helped by visualizing vivid, meaningful mental images of yourself accomplishing your goals.
Finally, when the session is over, you will either bring yourself out of hypnosis or your therapist will help you end your state of relaxation.
Contrary to how hypnosis is sometimes portrayed in movies or on television, you don’t lose control over your behavior while under hypnosis. Also, you generally remain aware of and remember what happens during hypnosis.
You may eventually be able to practice self-hypnosis. This is where you induce a state of hypnosis in yourself. You can use this skill as needed — for instance, after a chemotherapy session.

An insurance deductible is "The amount you pay for covered health care services before your insurance plan starts to pay". With a $2,000 deductible, for example, you pay the first $2,000 of covered services yourself before the insurance company will start to reimburse the health care provider. Once a deductible is met, the amount you have to pay for a copay/co-insurance is set by your insurance company. You will need to contact them for the exact amount.
VERIFICATION OF INSURANCE DOES NOT GUARANTEE PAYMENT FROM YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY Pay portions are estimates based on the information provided to Transformations Counseling Group, LCSW by the patient and his or her insurance carrier. The patient/guarantor must understand that having an insurance benefit does not guarantee payment. Exact benefits are determined when claims are received by your insurance company. There is no guarantee on our part that claims will be paid. If a claim is denied, the client will be immediately billed for the outstanding amount while the denial is investigated. The insurance carrier makes the final decision as to whether payment will be made after it receives and reviews the claim. Some insurance companies use third-party processors for handling their mental health claims. This may be unknown to us at the time we verify your insurance and the information we receive can be inaccurate. We strongly recommend you check with your insurance provider for further explanation of your coverage. When a client is treated at Transformations Counseling Group, LCSW (TCG), as a courtesy, TCG’s staff contacts the patient’s third-party payor to check insurance eligibility and pre-certification for insurance payment. We do our best to get accurate information but verification doesn't guarantee payment or accuracy. We advise you to call and check with your insurance for your exact plan benefits. Every insurance policy is different. It is recommended that you contact your provider about copayment, deductible and out-of-pocket expenses, and pre-certification requirements. Also, as a courtesy, Transformations Counseling Group. LCSW will bill the client’s insurance carrier for services. The patient/guarantor is responsible for all outstanding balances should the insurance company fail to pay all or any part of the charges. The client’s Financial Counselor must be informed of all insurance coverage prior to the first visit. Any non-payment as a result of the patient’s/guardian’s failure to provide insurance information prior to the first visit is also the patient’s/guarantor's financial responsibility. It is the patient’s/guarantor’s responsibility to ensure that all insurance premiums, dues, and COBRA payments are current throughout the patient’s treatment at Transformations Counseling Group, LCSW PLLC Any costs incurred by the patient/guarantor due to a change in the patient’s insurance policy are the sole responsibility of the patient/guarantor. The patient’s insurance coverage is a contract between the client and an insurance carrier – not between Transformations Counseling Group, LCSW, and the insurance carrier. As such, the patient should be aware that insurance policies often change. It is the client’s sole responsibility to know his or her coverage. Any costs incurred by the patient/guarantor due to a change in the patient’s insurance policy are the sole responsibility of the patient/guarantor.
