Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why does hypnosis work?

When all conscious efforts fail, hypnosis works because the subconscious mind always rules. Getting your subconscious mind to learn something is much easier than unlearning an inappropriate behavior. Hence, because hypnosis works directly with your inner mind (sc) change is much easier and quicker.

  • Does that mean that we are victims to our subconscious?

Not at all. In reality your subconscious serves you very well with many positive and helpful patterns of life such as driving a car, simply walking, typing and speaking english. It all happens “automatically” through the subconscious. What a marvelous gift!

  • Why am I having so much trouble changing what I don’t want?

Well unfortunately you learned the behavior you no longer want. Because you have a brilliant subconscious mind it soon learned the behavior that it thought you wanted (or didn’t want) for yourself and it began to perform the task for you. You no longer had to consciously think about how to perform that task. Driving, smoking and even anger are good examples.

  • Does that mean that with your hypnosis I can learn to do something or do something better?

Yes, absolutely! Recently I worked with a 12 year old girl that truly wants to be an actress. For most people that is an impossible dream but she has been working at it since she was six. She is now headed to LA for auditions. My role was to help boost her confidence and presentation skill. She is a motivated young lady and she will do amazingly well.

  • Can everyone be hypnotized?

No. However, most motivated individuals that can follow simple instructions can be hypnotized and successful with my hypnosis. You can click here to get on my home page, do the MINI-SESSION there and see how well you do. Let me know when you call.

  • Is hypnosis safe?

In the hands of a professional, absolutely. Some people think they can “play” with hypnosis and that can cause problems for the person they “play” with. Remember they are “playing” with the core of your life and behavior. An amateur could simply say the wrong thing that could have some unpleasant outcomes. Stick to an experienced professional.

  • What about your rates?

Well, my rates are probably way above a nonprofessional or amateur. I don’t like to lock myself into rates because I am flexable and I will even take payments. Because of my experience I get the job done quickly, therefore my rates overall will cost you less than most anyone else. Overall, your cost will be less than insurance co-pays over time. No I don’t take insurance.


  • Your Question:

I have been experiencing RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) pain as a result of colon cancer surgery. The pain has been chronic for the past two years. It sometimes subsides for a few days or weeks at a time, but returns. I have tried pain shots, medications, therapy, acupuncture–still I am experiencing pain. Have you any thoughts on this situation and would I be a candidate for hypnosis?


RE: RSD. Ouch. I am going to assume that by this time you have reached stage 3 and the doctors are looking to cut nerve endings with no promise of relief. If you have done your research and read between the scientific spin you will see that medically they cannot do much at all. The problem is psychosomatic. Meaning that it is a subconscious and internal response that seems to be uncontrollable.

Because your pain is a subconscious response and because I have worked with several people with RSD with over a 80% success rate I expect that together we should be able to resolve this unwanted and very painful problem.

Your question:

  • Me and my husband are having two problems. He has very bad anxiety and I am very lazy and have a little bit of depression. We would like some more information on your programs.  Sabrina

Sabrina, First of all we thank you for your inquiry.

If your husband has “very bad anxiety” he has more than 2 problems all on his own. So let me address that briefly first. Anxiety is typically being afraid of the future and not knowing what to expect. It has its roots in the past.

My program starts with a discovery consultation, about 15 to 20 minutes and won’t cost you anything and there is no obligation. Although it’s hard to get an anxiety person to the phone, never mind driving to a therapist, getting him to a phone for the consult is probably the easiest thing. Choose a good day and a good time of day. Following the consult we start to follow the path backwards to extinguish old anxiety patterns. Typically it doesn’t take too long to do this and is not as emotionally painful as other therapies are. Bottom line, I Really need to talk with him.

About laziness. Again, we need to talk. First guess the depression is moving you to “laziness” where you don’t feel like doing much at all. Discussing the root of your depression and clearing it will make a world of difference to you.

What most people want to know is how much? I can’t answer the question yet. Too many unknowns. I do flat fee programs with typically amazing results But I need to know more.

Let me suggest that you go to drleog.com/form/ and complete the form and send it to me. I’ll call you and we’ll talk. Dr. Leo

Your question:

  • I am severely suffering from post traumatic stress. In my dreams I have been reliving the abuse my husband did to me. I have woken up with choke marks around my neck and I even woke up with a cigarette burn!!! could have burned down the house!!! I am need of help right away!!!

Kari, your inner mind is screaming for resolution and will give you no peace until you clear the emotions from that terrible abuse. The doctor has helped many people, like yourself, that have been severely wounded emotionally. He thinks that you need some help that will bring rapid relief in a very short time. Because he specializes in that type of emotional resolution work he can usually help you reclaim your life quickly. He will need to talk with you to find out just how quickly he can turn this around for you.

Your question:

Rob, that would depend upon your motivation to be straight and the cause of your bisexual tendencies. With bisexual tendencies the most general answer is yes. Gay and Lesbian tendencies are different and the general answer is no.
Go back to my web page drleog.com/form/ and complete an information form if your serious.

Your question:

  • I have a 6 year old that needs to stop thumb-sucking. Can you help? Is it safe for kids?

Sheri, First there is nothing unsafe about hypnosis even for kids. Second, 6 is normally too young to work with. I suggest your go to the library or checkout internet information on helping a child to stop sucking their thumb. Typically a child at this age is past the need for sucking, which represents comfort and it’s a youngsters version of “comfort food”. It often is associated with a feeling of insecurity. You may want to look at how secure he feels at home and in his environment. Perhaps you can make some changes at home that will help to comfort his insecurity. Normally a 6 year old will soon start school and being in a group of kids that might make fun of him or at least not suck their thumb will most often extinguish the behavior.
Best of luck.
Dr. Leo

Your question:

  • Does insurance cover hypnotherapy visits as it does visits with a regular psychologist?

Dear Lisa;
No, we do not accept any insurance. We did several years ago but the insurance companies did not want to pay the billings (about $80,000 dollars worth) so we stopped accepting insurance.
Try to remember that with a psychologist you may only pay a co-pay but it will add up quickly over the years needed for psychotherapy. See the page about hypnosis for statistics. I’m hoping this answers your questions?
