What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy uses skilled guided relaxation to help direct a client’s imagination in such a way as to bring about intended changes in sensations, perceptions, feelings, thoughts and behavior.
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. I am your guide along this self exploration. Many people have already experienced a hypnotic trance in everyday situations. Have you ever driven a regular route so many times that one day you realize you drove part of the route and don’t remember it? There is no magic or mystery with hypnotherapy. It is simply guiding you into a relaxed state to discover how to help you change to live a better life. You choose your comfort level with the hypnotherapy session.
What can be expected during a session?
Each session involves guided relaxation, therapy in hypnosis, affirmations/suggestions towards helpful change, and a conclusion to end the session.
Spiritual guides can be a part of hypnotherapy. I am respectful to each person’s beliefs and want to help each person grow within their own moral/cultural beliefs. Under no circumstances would anyone be asked to or compelled to do anything against their personal beliefs.
How is hypnotherapy different than regular therapy?
Hypnotherapy bypasses the critical part of the mind that is blocking or dismissive. This often is a part of the mind that reacts in a negative way towards growth, acceptance or change. If you go through life thinking you are “not good enough” then hypnotherapy allows me to bypass this and find the positive change and growth possible. You have to be motivated and willing to allow this change to happen.
What if I already have a therapist?
Clients may come for a set series of hypnotherapy sessions to work on a specific issue before returning to their regular therapist. I would coordinate with your therapist to provide the best care.
