How Can Hypnotherapy Help You?

“We must take the time to enjoy our tea – and our lives. It is so simple, and yet it is not easy. Let go of the worry and the fear. Fear is a toxic and debilitating emotion that robs us of joy, replacing it with anxiety, stress, and dread. Instead, be mindful of the sweetness that each day brings. Life is so full of exquisite beauty. Drink it all in.”

Dr. Brian Weiss, Miracles Happen

“The usual fears expressed by clients who are not familiar with hypnotism are that they will reveal their secrets, that they will be unable to come out of the trance, and that they will be made to do things they don’t want to do. Contrary to average beliefs, these fears are all unfounded. Although the conscious, analytical mind is dormant during hypnosis, it is always functioning. A person can choose to lie when deeply hypnotized, and will not reveal any information he doesn’t want others to know. He can remember things he couldn’t remember consciously, but he chooses what he wishes to tell. He can come out of hypnosis at any time he wishes, and if he chooses to remain hypnotized, he will eventually go to sleep and awaken as usual. He will also refuse to do anything that he doesn’t want to do. He will do things while in hypnosis that he wouldn’t do otherwise, but only those things he doesn’t mind doing.”

  • Hypnotherapy for phobias – Phobias are a marked and persistent fear that is excessive or unreasonable of something real or imagined. Hypnotherapy can go back and rewrite the sensitizing and initiating events to erase the phobia completely.
  • Hypnotherapy for breaking habits – It takes 21 days to break a habit. Often habits need to be replaced with something else more productive, but hypnosis can help identify the benefit the habit provides, and understand any secondary gain so that the habit can be put aside in favor of more rewarding behavior.
  • Hypnosis for anger – Anger is the culmination of misunderstanding, lack of esteem, search for validation, or is a reactionary response to stress. Hypnosis can help identify the source of anger, which when left unresolved, often becomes more explosive. Anger is a defensive mechanism. Through hypnosis it is possible to identify why a person needs this defense, facilitate release, and install new coping skills.
  • Hypnosis for anxiety – Imagine laying a brick on top of another every time you experience a negative emotion. For some these emotions may be stacked as a result of tiny incidents, for others emotional events might be much larger and more traumatic. If the events are not released or processed, the accumulation results in anxiety. Eventually the bricks come tumbling down rather than carefully put away in sequential order. Choosing not to be hostage to past events and learning skills for future perspectives is hugely liberating as is re-writing incidents from the past that change our neurology.
  • Hypnotherapy for Motivation – As individuals we possess different levels of motivation in keeping with our personalities, but many of us lose the motivation we used to have. We all know the feeling we get when the light turns green and the person behind us honks to wake us from our distraction. Wouldn’t it be amazing to have that ‘foot down’ propulsion when we need it? Hypnosis can reinstall our acceleration, and address the issues that damped it down.
  • Hypnotherapy for Relationships – We all have a strategy for everything we do, even love. Understanding an individual’s love strategy can be enough to rekindle old feelings one had for a partner, or explain why the same choices are repeatedly made. Understanding how we tick at the subconscious will reveal why we sabotage, choose badly, accept reticently, or succumb to particular relationships. Once we have this understanding we can make necessary changes for a more fulfilling love life.
  • Hypnosis for stress – Most people suffer stress at varying levels on a day-to-day basis. Stress chronically effects the body and its ability to function. Prolonged stress can lead to illness and emotional problems. Hypnosis and NLP can help install coping skills, new perspectives, strategies, and teach relaxation skills.
  • Hypnosis for Sleep problems – Sleep is vitally important for health. We tend to underestimate the value of sleep. Self-hypnosis skills can greatly improve sleep quality, but hypnosis can also identify some of the underlying issues that cause the problem. Once worked through, sleep will resume at a healthy and enjoyable level.
  • Hypnosis for Pain & health – Pain is a curious phenomenon. It is more than a mere sensation; it can be defined only by some sort of withdrawal reaction or, in humans, by verbal report. Pain can be modified by opiates, by hypnosis, by administration of pharmacologically inert sugar pills (placebo), by emotions, and even by other forms of stimulation, such as acupuncture. Recent research efforts have made remarkable progress in discovering the physiological bases of these phenomena.
  • Past life regression – Many people feel they have a connection or pull to a previous life or a certain time or place in history. Past life regression is incredibly successful for applying learnings to current situations. Whether the ‘memories’ experienced in hypnosis are truly a past life, or a metaphor for what one needs to hear at the present time does not really matter. What matters is that a client is helped by their past life regression session. Whatever comes up always has a message or learning that proves to be beneficial. Click here before session.
  • Weight loss hypnosis – “A trance that takes off weight sounds too good to be true, but hypnosis has been embraced by scientists. Because the hypnotic state is characterized by heightened concentration and responsiveness to instructions, proponents say it can help break routines, separate a desire to eat from the impulse to act on it, and imprint new eating patterns on the subconscious mind. In a 1996 analysis of several studies, Irving Kirsch, PhD, of the University of Connecticut, found that the addition of hypnosis to psychotherapy appeared to have significant effect on weight loss: Those using it lost an average of nearly 15 pounds; those not using it, only six. “What hypnosis does is get around having to wait for change,” says Diedre Barrett, PhD. assistant clinical professor of psychology at Harvard Medical School and president of the American Psychological Association’s Division 30, a.k.a. the Society of Psychological Hypnosis. “For some things, the minute you make the change, you get the result. If you quit smoking, you’re a nonsmoker the next day. But the day after you decide to lose weight, you don’t necessarily look thinner. Hypnosis can let you experience in vivid fantasy the results you want. It’s vivid imagery, and for some people it’s completely hallucinatory. ‘Experiencing’ the change can be very motivating.” “You can think of traditional hypnosis as an external power pack for your super ego, ” says Jeffrey K. Zeig, PhD, director of the Milton H. Erickson Foundation in Phoenix.

 

“Top performing swimmers and divers, high jumpers, sprinters, weight lifters and other athletes have trained themselves to visualize their events in detail, using all the senses in order to simulate the total action they want to develop. This seemed very far out at first, especially to high-testosterone competitive athletes who couldn’t quite fathom the training value of sitting still and closing their eyes, but by now it is absolutely proven to work and is commonplace.”

“Scientists have found that if they measure the electrical output of a person’s brain (using CAT or PET scans, for example) while they are looking at an object, and then again while they are imagining the same object, in both cases the same areas of the brain are activated.”

If you keep hitting the repeat button in the neuronet, those habits become increasingly hardwired in the brain and are difficult to change. As a connection is used over and over, it gets stronger, better established, like forging a path through tall grass by walking it again and again. This can be advantageous but it can make it difficult to change an unwanted behavior pattern. Luckily there is a flip side: nerve cells that don’t fire together, no longer wire together. They lose their long-term relationship. Every time we interrupt the habitual mental or physical process reflected in a neuronal network, the nerve cells and groups of cells that are connected to each other start breaking down their relationship. – Dr. Joe Dispenza 

It is possible to break the brain’s wired-together neuronets, change habits and gain freedom. HYPNOTHERAPY is key in prompting the brain’s natural ability to form new connections.
