Hypnotherapy is a skilled verbal communication, used during hypnosis, which helps direct a client’s imagination in such a way as to bring about intended alterations in sensations, perceptions, feelings, thoughts and behavior. In a typical hypnotherapy session, the hypnotherapist will ask the client questions about previous medical history, general health and lifestyle. The hypnotherapist and client will decide together on the changes or goals that are desired.
Hypnotherapy is a method used to create subconscious change in the form of new responses, thoughts, attitudes, behaviors and feelings that will have a positive effect on your life. To install these new behaviors and beliefs, you’ll enter a state of hypnosis, a heightened sense of awareness, suggestibility, and responsiveness.
The aim is to open up your unconscious mind and suggest new courses of action and solidify the beliefs behind those actions. This is a true inside-out approach, as it causes us to neutralize the limiting beliefs deep within our core selves.
A typical session could include discussion of your medical history, overall health and lifestyle choices. With your goals in mind, we’ll decide a course of action to pursue together, whether they be improved performance in your career, better work/life balance, or dealing with a nasty habit.
Types of Hypnotherapy
I use various types of hypnotherapy methods, depending on my client’s needs and personality. It’s very important to me that there is a perfect fit between you and the technique we choose to employ. Here are a couple the modalities I use:
- Traditional Hypnosis: I give direct suggestions to the unconscious mind. This type of hypnosis works well with those who accept what they are told.
- Ericksonian Hypnosis: I use metaphors to give suggestions and ideas to your unconscious mind. This can be very effective because it helps to eliminate the resistance to change that may come from the conscious mind.
