Hypnotherapy Overview

How Does Hypnosis Work?

Picture of Night SkyHypnotherapy uses guided relaxation, and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness that is called a trance. In this state we gain more conscious awareness of ourselves.

This is a naturally occurring state. a person may focus his or her attention, more easily on specific thoughts. These thoughts may be causing serious problems in one’s life.

The hypnotic state allows people to explore painful thoughts, feelings, and memories they might have hidden from their conscious minds. hypnosis enables people to perceive some things differently, such as blocking an awareness of pain, as with hypnotherapy for childbirth.

Hypnosis can be used in two ways, as suggestion therapy or for patient analysis. The hypnotic state allows us to respond to suggestions. Hypnotherapy can help people change certain behaviors, such as to stop smoking or nail-biting. It helps people change perceptions and sensations, and is particularly useful in treating pain.

Discovering Root Causes

We use this relaxed state to find the root cause of a disorder or symptom, such as a traumatic past event that is hidden in her unconscious memory. Once the trauma is revealed, it can be addressed. The hypnotic state allows a person to be more open to discussion and suggestion. It can improve the success of other treatments for many conditions, including:

  • Phobias, fears, and anxiety
  • Sleep disorders
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Post-trauma anxiety
  • Grief and loss

It also might be helpful for people whose symptoms are severe or who need crisis management.

Spiritual Hypnotherapy for Transformation

We look at all the issues that are presenting themselves from a different perspective. The question asked is if you are calling these situations to yourself. What is that for? What can you learn from this? What is the core fear connected to this issue? When you are really ready to transform an opportunity always presents itself to assist you in this transformation. When you are holding a powerful intention for healing, blocked energy will release.

Using this method helps to identify the issues. When we work through feelings, as a vehicle for transformation, we can release energy blocks in the body as well as the mind.

We will shift the old limiting beliefs that have been blocking you from your power. These blocks may seem almost physical. In this way the client is really the healer. The therapist and the client are both holding space for the healing to happen.

I have many tools that can be utilized in a session. We can work through memories or feelings. During the course of the session, is you will become aware of the difference tools that can be used to anchor in this transformation.

Spiritual Hypnotherapy

When we are engaged in Spiritual Hypnotherapy, we can open up to our intuitive knowledge and guidance, or connect with guides and teachers. We go on Shamanic journeys using visualizations, drums and various instruments. you can clear deeper levels of yourself and your pain body. Part of the healing process is to have life practice and this practice assists you in anchoring in the changes that you made intercession so that you can feel confident in this transformation that you created in the session.

By inquiring deeply of oneself, and observing our patterns we can create amazing shifts and transform our lives. Oftentimes we need others to facilitate ourselves in healing. With hypnotherapy you can accept yourself, for who you been in the past, as you create who you want to be in the future, coming to a new awareness and understanding. As we see the truth of the past, we are able to resolve the inner conflicts healing the blocks that create physical and emotional pain.

When you tap into the innate intelligence of your body, trust deepens. as you trust yourself all the blocks to your intuitive gifts are released. You are able to listen and trust the decisions that you make as they come from that guided, a loving place within. You no longer see life and its problems. You begin to see the opportunities that are presented to you. Each opportunity is there to get you closer to the love that you are, to happiness and health.

As we connect the heart to the mind, and allow information to come into the heart first we start responding instead of reacting and life begins to flow more easily. As we live through the heart love for our self grows.

Sessions are in person or by phone or Skype.
