Negative or stagnant emotions can show up as illness in the mind and body. It’s your body asking for help.

What is it?

There are many misconceptions about hypnosis.

People are not treated with hypnosis, they are treated in hypnosis.

Hypnosis is a natural phenomenon. It’s an increased state of concentration and suggestibility. In this state, the conscious critical mind becomes an observer. This allows direct communication with the subconscious mind and provides permanent changes at the subconscious level.

The technique if often tailored to different treatment methods. People often become empowered by learning to hypnotize themselves to reduce chronic pain, improve sleep, or alleviate some symptoms of depression or anxiety.

This is done by creating positive feelings, pictures, images, sights, sounds, smells and emotions to replace specific negative ones gathered up unknowingly over the years. 

This is a team effort between client and therapist - each committing to contribute 100% towards the achievement of desired goals. With the help of a hypnotherapist, the success of these sessions will be enhanced by:

  • a willingness to use one's imagination

  • a desire to allow yourself to go into a deep state of calmness and focus

Through hypnotherapy, I've worked with clients to alleviate:

  • stress

  • anger

  • anxiety

  • sleep troubles

  • body image issues

  • deep emotional discomfort due to trauma

What does it feel like?

You won’t do or say anything in hypnosis that you would not normally say or do.  You are in control at all times. You will know everything that is going on around you, what I am saying and what you are thinking, doing or saying.

In fact, some people will think they have not been in hypnosis because they are expecting something odd to be happening to them.  Do not expect a lack of consciousness or amnesia. 

Hypnosis is about imagination and creation.
