About transformational Hypnosis

Hypnosis, also known as guided visual imagery, is a state of highly focused concentration that allows you access to all the information stored in the subconscious.

Hypnotherapy is a dynamic tool that offers the opportunity to create a healthy balance of mind, body and spirit. Everything you believe and emotionally accept, whether positive or negative has manifested itself in your life in some manner. Each of us has created our own reality based on the way we think, feel and act. Through the process of relaxation you increase your subconscious awareness, allowing you to bring clarity and solutions to your own unique situations.

Reconnecting to the passion of life and to one’s purpose is possible through the processes used. Whatever clarity you seek a safe environment is always established and a client centered approach is taken. Empowerment is the result.

Hypnotherapy has been proven useful for the following:

  • Weight loss/ management
  • Stress & Anxiety
  • Fears & Phobias
  • Self-Esteem
  • Pain Management
  • connecting to you inner child and inner child work
  • Insomnia

  • Spiritual Connection
  • General Well Being

Frequently Asked Questions—Hypnotherapy

How is hypnotherapy done?

Hypnotherapy is usually done one-on-one or in a group setting with a Hypnotherapist guiding you.  You will likely be reclined in a comfortable chair, in a dimly lit room to enhance relaxation.  It is important to feel as comfortable as possible.  Your Hypnotherapist may also teach you self-hypnosis, so that you can support yourself in making the changes you desire.

Is hypnosis dangerous?

No not at all!  It is perfectly safe and therapeutic.  In fact, there has never been a documented case of harm coming to anyone from the therapeutic use of hypnotism.  The common effects of hypnosis include relaxation, stress reduction, attitude adjustment, increased awareness and intuition.

Will I lose control?  Does hypnosis weaken the will?  Will I reveal secrets?

No, absolutely not.  First, no one can be hypnotized against his or her will.  When hypnotized, you are in complete control.  Your subconscious is aware of everything that is said.  You have the option to stop the session at any time.  Secrets or information you do not wish to share will not be revealed because your subconscious won’t allow them to be.  You will not say or do anything against your beliefs or values.  Again, you are the one in control.  Hypnosis is actually quite the opposite as it strengthens your will to achieve your goals.

What if I can’t come out of the hypnotic state?

You will awaken from the hypnotic state.  There has never been a documented case of someone unable to come out of a hypnotic state.

How does it feel to be hypnotized?

It feels very relaxing—a pleasant feeling of complete physical and mental relaxation.  The Hypnotherapist will spend time encouraging your body and mind to rest.  Then the Hypnotherapist will give positive suggestions to your subconscious to allow for healing, growth and movement in the direction of your goals.  You may be aware of everything that is said.  Or, you may go into such a deep state of relaxation that your conscious mind loses sense of what the Hypnotherapist is saying.  Or, you may alternate between these 2 states.  Whatever you experience is perfect for you at that time.  And do not worry if your conscious mind is not capturing everything being said—your subconscious is hearing, responding and remembering everything.  Your Hypnotherapist will review with you important points afterward.

What if I fall asleep?

You will not fall asleep during hypnosis.  You will be relaxed yet mentally alert.  In fact, your level of awareness of your surroundings and inner world will increase during hypnosis.

What is the subconscious mind?

The conscious mind, the mind you are aware of, constitutes only 15-20% of who you are.  The subconscious mind is the part that directs your behavior through the habits and emotional desires acquired from the influences of your environment, before you were old enough to reject harmful ideas and concepts.  Every memory and experience you have had is stored within your subconscious.  Hypnotherapy allows you to access important information and answers within yourself, yet you will only experience memories when they are beneficial for your own growth or healing.  Through proper use of suggestion during the hypnotic state, you reprogram the subconscious mind to make decisions beneficial to your well-being.

Who can be hypnotized?

Anyone with an open mind and ability to concentrate.  With belief and desire, you achieve results.

What is hypnotherapy used for?

Just about anything!  Common examples: Stress Management,Worthiness, Self-Esteem, Attitude (overcoming anger, resentment, negativity), Fears, Phobias, Health issues (including Pain Management), Smoking Cessation, Sleep (insomnia), Improving performance (sports, school, public speaking), Weight management, Anxiety (work, school, test taking, social situations). Really the list goes on. I often find myself wondering, as long as it is for the highest good of the individual, what can’t hypnotherapy be used for.

What is self-hypnosis?

Truly, all hypnosis is a form of self-hypnosis.  Different techniques can be taught and performed by a trained hypnotherapist and in turn used on your own. Self hypnosis can be very effective in between sessions.

How many sessions will I need to achieve my goal?

This depends on the nature of your goal, your individual characteristics and circumstances.  Your goal may be achieved with only one session, or you may require a few or several sessions.
