WHAT IS HYPNOTHERAPY?

Hypnotherapy is a complementary therapeutic tool used to effect real change in the lives of people like you and I. With care, this method can modify unhealthy coping mechanisms, shift internalized oppressive beliefs, and increase confidence in order to make impactful changes in your life.

Hypnotherapy is a natural, yet altered state of mind, where the critical factor of the conscious mind is relaxed and selective thinking is amplified. Selective thinking (focused concentration), is the ability to rest your mind on a selected idea. This helps to facilitate communication between the conscious and the subconscious mind.

(VERY) BRIEF HISTORY OF HYPNOSIS

Hypnotic practices have played important roles in religion and religious ceremonies beginning 4000 years ago. Today we have chairs that recline in comfortable offices, but thousands of years ago in Egypt, there were something called ‘Sleep Temples’ (also known as dream temples). Sleep temples were places people went for healing, like hospitals, for physical and mental ailments. Patients were put into a trance-like or hypnotic state to analyze their dreams in order to determine treatment. Sleep temples also existed in Babylon, Persia, Britain, Scandinavia, America, Africa, India, and China.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

When we break down the word Hypnotherapy, we can see that the first part, hypno (or hypnos) is a Greek word meaning ‘sleep’ and the latter part, therapy, means the “treatment of disease or disorders”. So, hypnotherapy is a method used to help heal or treat through a sleep-like or altered state.

The American Psychological Association (APA) endorses hypnosis as a branch of psychology. The APA’s definition for hypnosis has been revised over the years; however, the most recent definition is “a state of consciousness involving focused attention and reduced peripheral awareness characterized by an enhanced capacity for response to suggestion”.

CAN I BE HYPNOTIZED?

The ability to go into a hypnotic state has been a practice for centuries. Hypnosis is natural which means most people can go into some level of trance. In fact, 25% of people enter a light trance; 45% enter a medium trance; 25% can go into a deep trance; and 2% – 5 % of the population have difficulty going into trance. The good news is a light trance is all that is needed for hypnotherapy to be effective. Everyone experiences hypnosis at one time or another, like when driving down a familiar road one minute, and then arriving at your destination without recalling how you got there.

HOW IS IT USED?

I added the practice of hypnotherapy to my tool box in 2014 to help people find solutions and alleviate suffering. Since then, I have helped hundreds of clients cope, manage or heal from a multiplicity of concerns, exacerbated by the turbulent times we live in, using my culturally attuned approach to Hypnotherapy.

Here are other benefits:

1. To control pain and reduce stress (hypnotherapy is never intended to replace traditional medical intervention)

2. To teach self-control and replace unwanted habits/behaviors with desirable habits/behavioral patterns (including: reduce smoking habits, decrease insomnia, reduce fears/phobias, release excess weight, reduce excessive nail biting, improve sports performance, improve interpersonal relationships, reduce test anxiety, reduce hair pulling, anger and road rage, manage labor and childbirth discomfort, decrease dental fears, and more)

3. To replace or modify negative beliefs and thought patterns (reducing self-sabotage, decreasing imposter syndrome, quieting the inner critic, overcoming internalized oppressive thoughts/beliefs, shift money mindset, and more)

4. To grow spiritually (finding meaning in life, discovering the truth of who you are, self-love and forgiveness)

Through my guidance, you will learn how to achieve a state of deep relaxation, while simultaneously maintaining focused attention to help you gain access to the subconscious mind. It is there that you will learn to quiet the inner chatter box within, open your mind to new ideas and beliefs, and reverse or shift the embedded limiting belief patterns for a better quality of life.
