Hypnosis is subtle, powerful, and clinically proven for many therapeutic applications.
Hypnosis is a natural state of deep relaxation and focused concentration. Despite the parlor tricks we’ve all seen on stage and in movies, hypnosis requires collaboration between the therapist and the client. The therapist has no supernatural control over you or your behaviors.
During hypnosis your (alpha, beta, and theta) brain waves are similar to times when you are daydreaming or watching television. During this kind of deep relaxation, your mind is less likely to react against positive comments about your innate power to change, your strengths, and your ability to stick to the transformation you seek. In this relaxed and comfortable state, we rally ourselves around our desire and ability to make a change. Outside of our sessions, you can trigger that induced feeling of strength and accomplishment and use it to stick to your transformation.
Hypnotherapy can be applied in stand alone packages, or as an adjunct to your psychotherapy.
