Hypnotherapy is the practice of using hypnosis in a safe, therapeutic environment to create lasting positive changes in the way you think, feel and behave. It is also known self-improvement behavioral modification.
Hypnotherapy is a process of self-discovery and personal transformation providing direct access to the part of mind that governs up to 90% of our subconscious behaviors. Research has shown that changes made at the subconscious level are more likely to stick than mere “positive thinking” at the conscious level.
My job as a Certified Hypnotherapist is to help you achieve your goals by getting your conscious intentions aligned with your subconscious motivations.
Hypnosis is a natural and normal state of altered consciousness you likely experience everyday. It’s that groggy, half-asleep feeling you get right before you fall asleep or when you first wake up. It’s that sense of being on autopilot when you find yourself driving to work on your day off. It’s that period of time when you get lost in a good movie or book. It also happens when your mind starts to wonder and thoughts turn into daydreams.
Hypnosis may resemble sleep, but you’re not really asleep at all. If anything, you’re more alert. Hypnosis is a focused state of awareness and concentration in which the senses become heightened and the physical body relaxes deeply. It is in this state when you are most receptive to thoughts and suggestions entering the mind, creating an ideal learning state you can control.
Hypnosis is usually triggered by an abundance of information and messages entering into the mind from various stimuli, such as the body, the environment, conscious thoughts, unconscious thoughts and even social interactions. This overload of information tends to activate an internal fight/flight mechanism, causing the conscious mind to escape into hypnosis when overwhelmed.
The result is a deeply relaxed, sleep-like state allowing you to access and override your subconscious programming so that it is working in alignment with your conscious intention to achieve a specific goal. Through hypnosis, you can make positive changes in your life for the purposes of personal or professional self-improvement.
