Hypnosis is a temporary relaxing of the conscious mind allowing positive and beneficial ideas to become accepted by the unconscious mind. You are guided to changing negative thought patterns and releasing habits that are no longer beneficial in order to have a more positive, healthier, and more productive life. The key is learning how to communicate with your own mind so that it agrees to work with you, instead of fighting against you.
Personalized Sessions and Benefits and Uses of Hypnosis
Depending on the presenting issue, a client often receives a recording made in the session to take home and listen to daily as part of a self hypnosis program. This supports making and maintaining positive and lasting change. Hypnosis is very effective for anxiety, insomnia, depression, fears and phobias, weight management, smoking cessation, pain management, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and goal setting. Hypnosis is very effective in doing childhood and past life regressions when a person feels drawn to this exploration.
Myths and Misconceptions About Hypnosis
Many get their ideas about hypnosis from television, books or motion pictures. While the plot lines make for good stories, they are often inaccurate. Many misconceptions about hypnosis are due to the fact that the term “sleep” is often used when discussing hypnosis. Hypnosis is not sleep but because many times, people experiencing hypnosis are very relaxed and it may outwardly appear like sleep. One difference is – in a hypnotic state – you can think clearly. Some people believe that in order to be hypnotized you must have a weak mind. Nothing could be further from the truth. Because hypnosis is not a contest of willpower, a highly intelligent, strong-willed and imaginative person can make a great hypnotic subject. Many people think that in order to experience hypnosis, they must become unconscious. This is probably the most common misconception about hypnosis. In hypnosis, you are aware and can hear clearly, in fact, hypnosis is a state of increased awareness.
How Many Sessions Are Needed
