Together we will discuss the challenge you face and identify your goals. Then I'll guide you into a relaxed, focused state using personalized guidance to help you access the resources you need to change the way you think, feel and behave, and regain control in your life.
During group sessions you have the opportunity to discuss and identify where you want to focus your healing. After the discussion I will guide you through guided imagery and hypnotherapy written for the group's purpose. Current groups include parenting triggers, well-beling, insomnia and chronic pain.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Clinical hypnotherapy is a collaborative process that calms your nervous system and allows you to move into a deep state of relaxation, like being absorbed in a book, movie, or beautiful music. From this relaxed state you are guided toward your desired emotional experience and empowered to reinforce the changes you want make.
How does it work?
Hypnotherapy helps you merge what you “know” intellectually with what you feel emotionally. For example, if you want to travel, but you're afraid of flying; or you want to respond to your child with kindness and model respectful communication, but you continue to respond with explosive anger. Hypnotherapy can help you get on the plane or respond differently to your child.
True clinical hypnotherapy is provided by a trained psychotherapist or psychiatrist. Unlike the dramatic portrayals of hypnosis in on-stage performances and movies, hypnotherapy cannot make you do things you do not want to do. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis, and you are always in control of your experience.
