WHAT IS HYPNOTHERAPY?
It is a state of altered consciousness that occurs typically in every person just before entering into sleep, and often when we are driving or walking, or doing everyday tasks.
In therapy, we prolong this state to work more directly with the subconscious, rather than the conscious mind, which is still awake and aware. The subconscious often knows exactly what is needed, and what our true feelings and thoughts are, even when we cannot articulate it ourselves in regular talk therapy.
How will it help you?
Hypnotherapy helps you better handle unwanted patterns of behavior that you don't understand that may include physical symptoms. It works more quickly than traditional therapy. Hypnosis is well researched to help with pain, anxiety, stress and many other symptoms. Hypnotherapy is a more profound process that gets to the root of the anxiety, stress, and fears, or anger. You can heal yourself and make new decisions about your life that will change your life patterns.
How does hypnosis feel?
It's very relaxing and you will be aware of everything. You will hear every sound, and you are aware of anything going on. You can move your limbs or open your eyes if you want. Your thoughts are under your control, and you will still converse with me.
