Hypnosis is everywhere. You can find pre-made hypnosis CD’s at Barnes & Noble, hypnosis books at your local library and hypnosis videos on YouTube. What makes hypnotherapy more effective with me is my experience and customized approach. I ask you all the right questions to find out your motivations for change. I have twenty-five years of experience finding the right approach to help you enter the hypnotic state and the right words to use with you once you are there. You can achieve lasting change quickly and easily. You can do it all from the comfort of your home. We can work together by phone or through Zoom.
Hypnosis is a safe, naturally occurring state. It is a state of focused attention. While in this state, one is more connected to inner resources and receptive to positive suggestions. People experience hypnosis daily when:
Hypnotherapy allows one to:
The client is guided by the therapist's suggestions while remaining fully in control.
Unlike in the movies, hypnosis is achieved with the consent of the client and therapy involves having the client fully consider the beliefs and behaviors that have brought him or her to this point. Hypnotherapy helps us to recognize the trance we are currently living in and to wake up from it.
There is no such thing as an "un-hypnotizable" person. Anyone can experience hypnosis and enjoy its benefits. Much depends on the level of trust between the client and therapist and the flexibility of the therapist in finding the right approach for each client. Good candidates are often intelligent, creative, motivated and focused people.
This is extremely rare and most therapists rely on a client remembering the session in order to have the conscious mind aligned with the subconscious. Sessions can also be recorded for the client.
In 1958, the American Medical Association recommended that all medical schools include hypnosis in its course of instruction. Many doctors and dentists use it to soothe patients concerns and lessen post-operative discomfort. Psychologists, psychiatrists and other health professionals use it to assist people to liberate themselves from phobias and unwanted habits.
