What is Hypnosis?
It may surprise you to learn that about every 60-90 minutes each one of us experiences a “hypnotic trance”! You are experiencing hypnosis when you daydream, get lost in a book, become absorbed in a movie, and even while driving and zoning out. Hypnosis is a common and naturally occurring state of mind, called an “altered state”, in which our conscious mind is relaxed and our subconscious mind is able to much more easily create new ideas and beliefs, like when we were little. When we choose to engage in hypnosis, we are choosing to experience a state of light or deep relaxation together with a heightened state of awareness, involvement, and responsiveness with the ideas we’re focusing on.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the process of easily taking yourself into hypnosis with guidance, connecting with the “files” in your subconscious that have been causing you to do and experience the things that are keeping you from what you really want, and replacing them with higher quality information of your own choosing. You are aware and in control during the process, and it does not require reliving every detail of your past.
Will hypnosis work for me?
95% of people can be hypnotized to some extent, according to research started at Stanford University and continued by many others. My own experience with clients reflects this. Just as you can choose to take a deep breath, you can choose to take yourself into hypnosis with simple guidance. If you are motivated to make healthy changes to your life, and you are open to following step-by-step instructions to connect with your powerful subconscious mind, you will be amazed at what hypnosis will do for you.
Can Hypnosis help me stop smoking?
Many people have used Hypnosis to help them stop smoking, including celebrities Matt Damon, Ellen Degeneres, and Ben Affleck, among others. The Subconscious mind is like a powerful super computer and, once it receives an upgrade, it willingly runs new, higher quality programs for you. You get to choose what those upgrades are, and hypnosis helps you install them. Being a Non-Smoker is one of the unlimited changes you can make.
