The Art of Healing Isn't Hard to Master

Take it from someone who practices self-hypnosis on a daily basis: it can be easy to reframe our thinking in order to make positive changes to our life. We have been programmed since a very young age to think that change is HARD, but it doesn’t have to be hard with hypnosis! Hypnosis itself is a change in perspective; it is a natural state of mind where our inner critic is relaxed, and we go into a state of hypnosis without even realizing it several times a day. During hypnosis, we feel physically relaxed yet mentally alert, emotionally calm and serene. While in this wonderful state of relaxation, we also experience increased control, selective thinking, and hyper-suggestibility which is a heightened responsiveness to positive healing suggestions. The positive suggestions you hear and repeat out loud and the mental movies you envision are designed by both of us, together — you play an integral role in your hypnotherapy and healing.

Integral Hypnotherapy™ is the only hypnotherapy methodology that has been scientifically-validated by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). You can learn more about me here, but keep reading below to explore and learn more about hypnotherapy and its numerous benefits. 

About Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is an educational and self-improvement process that facilitates access to internal resources that help people solve problems, increase motivation, or alter behavioral patterns to create positive change. Co-therapists are fully aware of what is happening during a hypnotherapy session and are in complete control of their thoughts, actions, and what they choose to speak out loud. Despite what we’ve all seen on TV and during stage hypnosis shows, hypnotherapy isn’t about being made to bark like a dog for laughs. It’s about getting into a state of relaxation, setting goals, imagining helpful imagery, and repeating positive suggestions for change. Hypnotherapy is not about mind control or falling asleep — rather, it’s about waking up and taking control of your life. You are physically relaxed yet in a heightened state of awareness. Think about the last time you were driving somewhere, spaced out, and you snap out of it minutes later. That’s hypnosis, and it occurs naturally on a daily basis.
Co-therapists are clients, but you are so much more than that. You play an integral role in your hypnotherapy sessions by helping me create the positive suggestions and imagery related to achieving your goal. Most co-therapists achieve their goals in 3-8 sessions, and that happens when you commit yourself fully to our work together — and yes, it does include homework! Remember, hypnotherapy is an educational and self-improvement process. During our sessions, I will teach you to practice self-hypnosis so you can become the master of your own mind, so daily practice of hypnosis becomes your homework.

Send Your Stress Away

Stress is a normal part of life; it creates balance and harmony, but it can be difficult to navigate stress, or even just get through the day when we’re overwhelmed. Hypnotherapy can help you manage your stress, stay positive and present, and appreciate life living in the moment rather than dwelling on the past or anticipating the future. Hypnotherapy gives back what you’re willing to put in. When you’re willing to do the work, you will see positive results quickly. It’s time to choose yourself and experience the positive results in your life that you so deserve!
