TRUTHS and MYTHS about Hypnosis.


Joan Ann Fissette 518 526-5012 5-PATH Transformational Hypnotist. Certified in Online Sessions


1. Hypnosis can help you in so many ways.                         TRUTH                                                                                                    

Hypnosis guides you into becoming who you were meant to be. Practicing self-hypnosis daily will increase your focus and concentration skills while recharging your energy. I am a certified Self-Hypnosis teacher.

2. Hypnosis works even when nothing else works.                TRUTH                            Maybe you have tried many avenues unsuccessfully to reach a goal. Hypnosis works because it taps into the power of the subconscious mind where our memories and emotions live. 5-PATH transformational hypnotists are highly trained to guide you.

3. The purpose of hypnosis is just to relax and fall asleep.     FALSE                    

The purpose of hypnosis is to relax just enough to enter a state of heightened awareness where your subconscious mind is exceptionally susceptible to the changes that you have shared with your hypnotist.During this state you may feel a variety of emotions related to the transformational process.

4. Hypnosis works for nearly every issue.                                    TRUTH                

Hypnosis can guide you in many ways for example: to change habits and beliefs, address past trauma, reduce pain (physical and emotional), eliminate fears, inspire spiritual growth and so much more.

5. Not everyone can be hypnotized.                                                 FALSE           

Anyone who is able and willing can be hypnotized. Twenty percent need extra steps to acquire the 4th stage of hypnosis where changes are more permanent. 

6. Hypnosis is a supernatural phenomenon.                                    FALSE                        Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state of mind characterized by heightened suggestibility and imagination during a relaxed state. Everyday states of hypnosis include: listening to music, reading a good book, getting lost in a movie, or just losing track of time.

7. Hypnosis works very fast and is extremely powerful.                   TRUTH                        Our subconscious mind can embrace an idea such as a fear/phobia instantly. Conversely, our brain can learn a new response quickly due to its neuroplasticity.

8. Practicing self-hypnotism empowers you to change your life.       TRUTH         

I teach 7th Path self-hypnosis FREE to any client who purchases a 4 session package. It is a life changing experience whether you are spiritual or not.

9. In order to be hypnotized you must achieve two criteria.                TRUTH

1) truly believe that your hypnotist can guide you towards success and 

2) have a strong desire to change behavior or belief.

10. Changes through hypnosis don’t have prerequisites.                   FALSE                 Any changes in beliefs and behaviors that occur through hypnosis or self-hypnosis are directly controlled by one’s ability to identify one’s own needs and willingness to follow the hypnotist’s suggestions. 

11. During hypnosis you will be asleep and remember nothing.         FALSE

You want to remember all the insight you have learned from your session so you will be conscious and alert the whole time. You will be able to talk with your hypnotist. If you fall asleep, you will be awakened. The only exception is if you are being hypnotized for medical purposes such as surgery. 

12. A hypnotist can’t make do anything against your beliefs.             TRUTH

Hypnosis is a consensual state. If a suggestion against the client’s belief system is made by hypnotist, the client will immediately emerge from hypnosis. You are always in control. Stage shows choose participants who are willing to react to silly suggestions.

13. Conscious thinking controls most of our mind.                              FALSE

Conscious thinking represents only 5%-7% of our minds. The rest is the subconscious and unconscious (control autonomic activity such as breathing) mind. 

14. The Critical Factor plays an essential role in formulating beliefs.           TRUTH

The Critical Factor is the part of our Conscious Mind that examines, interprets, and filters incoming ideas. When similar ideas are presented to the Conscious Mind they are accepted easily but, when ideas are too different from what is already held they are rejected. 

15. Repetition is crucial in creating a habit or breaking a habit.         TRUTH       Repetition is essential in starting or removing a habit.

To Who It May Concern:

I have had the pleasure of working with Joan Ann Fissette back in June of 2019. I went to Joan Ann as a client. It was my first time being hypnotized and I was nervous about the process. Joan Ann took her time with me, and explained to me how the process would work. She was also very comforting and caring. I immediately felt comfortable with her. She was very thorough in the intake process and really probed to get to the root of the issue that I was there for. During the actual hypnosis, Joan Ann’s voice was very soothing and calming. I felt very comfortable with her presence and as a result, I was able to let go more easily of the issues that were blocking me from the freedom that I was looking for. 

In addition to my experience as a client, I am also a participant in a monthly group that Joan Ann runs with her husband. We talk about a variety of subjects. Again, I feel that Joan Ann is a very caring and welcoming person. I think that she really understands the meaning and importance of community and that is what she has cultivated in this group. Her years of wisdom and experience are very evident in what she shares in these group meetings.

Lastly, Joan Ann was an inspiration to me, and because of her, and the experience that I had doing hypnosis with her; I am now becoming trained to become a hypnotist myself. She has been more than generous to mentor me and allow me opportunities to practice with her. I know she is very busy and has a full schedule and yet, she still offers time for me to practice. 

Overall, Joan Ann is a caring and competent hypnotist. She is a valuable asset to the world of hypnotism.

I called Joan Ann in the Fall of 2019 seeking relief from chronic pelvic pain for many years and many doctor visits. No one could find a reason for the pain. My pain was a 9 out of 10  24 hours a day so lack of sleep was an issue.  I purchased the 5-PATH/7th Path Self-Hypnosis package and  found some relief after the first session. By the 2nd session I was at a 5 out of 10. I am now pain free and sleeping at night. I highly recommend Joan Ann Fissette. I have learned to calm myself through 7thPath Self-Hypnosis and that some physical pain is caused by emotional responses. I also returned to do a "Soul Entrainment" session with her which I highly recommend.  M.

5-PATH Hypnosis

Informing Soul/Soul Entrainment

7th Path Self-Hypnosis®


As a 5-PATH hypnotist ( 5 Phase Advanced Transformational Hypnosis) I offer you the most modern techniques and processes available, arranged in such a way as to increase the effectiveness and reliability of outcome. Commitment to the process allows opportunity for more permanent change to accomplish the goals set by each client. 


What is 5-PATH®? Some hypnotherapists and hypnotists have undergone advanced hypnosis training and certification in 5-PATH® Hypnotherapy. These hypnosis professionals are among some of the most advanced hypnotherapists with whom you can work. Training and certification in 5-PATH® hypnotherapy allows the hypnotist to go far beyond what most hypnotists can do in a hypnosis session. Here is a quick outline of how highly trained hypnosis professionals differentiate themselves from others:

· You will receive a comprehensive "pre-talk" in which you will learn about 5-PATH Hypnosis and 7th Path Self-Hypnosis which is included free with your 4 session package. ($350. value)

· You will interact with me  during the "pre-hypnosis interview" as I learn  what your goals are and how best to fascilitate achievement of your goals. 

· I have been trained to utilize the appropriate level of hypnosis  essential for the kind of work we will be doing together. This will be done with covert and overt testing. The covert testing is done  so that I  will know that you are at the appropriate level of hypnosis to create change. You probably will not notice this testing being done. Once that has been accomplished I will do overt testing to provide you with some objective evidence that you were hypnotized.

· Your hypnotherapist will customize each session for you. 5-PATH® hypnotherapists know how to match the right inductions, deepening techniques, suggestions and other techniques to each client for maximum results.

We will work together as a team as we go through the process of neutralizing any old limiting beliefs, emotions or habits that have caused you to seek help.  5-PATH® Hypnotherapists have been trained to find the actual cause(s) of the problem(s)  rather than just treating the symptoms.  This enables our clients to be very successful and experience long term and even permanent results.

You can be assured that your hypnosis experience is completely professional and confidential.

7th Path Self-Hypnosis®


  The Many Benefits of 7th Path Spiritual Self-Hypnosis® 

The 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® is an exciting development in the field of Mind-Body-Spirit personal development. This practice is changing lives across the USA and around the world by combining the powers of self-hypnosis and your own highest belief systems. Practitioners of this new self-hypnosis system benefit in many ways because it is a holistic approach. This means that as you work on a particular issue such as improving motivation, concentration or breaking a bad habit,the positive effects of using this system will affect many other areas of your life. It is truly a mind-body-spirit and emotional energy approach to self-improvement.  

The 7th Path Self- Hypnosis® System is a spiritually directed form of self-hypnosis influenced by The Course In Miracles, Cal Banyon’s study of Psychology and Hypnotherapy, as well as spiritual practices such as Ascension 

Practitioners dedicate time each morning and afternoon to the practice as well as a short period of time before going to sleep. People who have experienced doing a form of meditation will notice right away that this is a profound leap forward. It will give you everything that you wanted from meditation because of how it combines hypnosis, meditation and spirituality. If you are not a "spiritual" person, you can still benefit a great deal from the practice of The 7th Path™.     

  The 7th Path™ Program acts like a de-programming device that removes old limiting beliefs and patterns. We call this process the "Emptying of the Cup."   During this phase of 7th Path™, the system works like anti-virus software for the mind, ridding you of all erroneous programming from the past that is getting in the way of your happiness, success and feelings of confidence.  Once some cup-emptying has been accomplished, practitioners can use the system to make just about any kind of improvement that he or she wants to make in life

The 7th Path™ is perfect for:

- Ridding yourself of old habits and addictions.

- Improving your mood.

- Improving your relationships.

- Helping you to become more patient and confident.

- Improving study and test taking.

- Becoming a better parent.

-Heal from stressed induced illnesses. 

Class Structure:

1. Learn how hypnosis works

2. Experience how it works.

3. Learn  how to "empty the cup."

4. Learn  to induce self-hypnosis and give yourself  suggestions.

5. Practice your new skill.

  Be courageous!

  Please set aside two + hours for each of these techniques to be fully experienced as some clients have more guidance from the other side than they may have expected. 


Perhaps fear and guilt are directing your life and your decisions? Are you repeating the same patterns over and over again? Do you feel stuck and you can’t get out of your own way? Are you searching for the answers outside of yourself through books, workshops and psychics and it’s still not working?

Then realize there are no coincidences and your soul brought you here to this moment in time. Read on and pay attention to how you feel, as you discover how just one Soul Entrainment® session can help you bring healing, clarity and insight to anything you want answered or resolved in your life.

How can Soul Entrainment® help you?

1.The soul will help you discover everything you need to know about your past, present, and future and it will always guide you with  unconditional love and protection

2. The soul helps you heal the root cause of your fears      and blocks so you can move forward

3. Gain insight into your future and what steps to take to      move forward

4. Heal and receive guidance about relationship issues,      health, career, and life purpose

5. Discover your true magnificence, worth, and gifts

6. Receive guidance on how you can create more love (for      self and others), joy, peace and fulfillment in your life

7. Discover and connect with your guardian angels and      spiritual helpers for support and guidance

What happens during the session?

In the first half hour you will discuss with me the issues you are dealing with and what you would like to heal, achieve or gain clarity on as it pertains to any aspect of your life (because of the power of these sessions and working with your soul, you can work on multiple issues or questions). Then she will ask you if you have any questions you would like to ask your soul (which is one with God, universe and all that is).

Next, you will be guided into a deep relaxation and I will assist you into higher states of consciousness where you will easily and effortlessly connect with your soul. At the same time I become one with your soul’s energy and your soul will use my intuitive and psychic abilities to help guide you, to your own healing and unfolding the answers you need to achieve their goals.

We will close the session by talking about your experience, picking an Angel card and giving action steps to integrate the information and guidance shared during your session.  You will go home with written notes to review and integrate.
