What is Hypnotherapy?
A more current term for it is self-directed neuroplasticity, where we learn techniques to rewire our brains to create the changes we want to see in our lives, whether it’s to release the past, deal with stress or to transform our lives.
According to the Mayo Clinic, it’s a “trance-like state in which you have heightened focus and concentration. Hypnosis is usually done with the help of a therapist using verbal repetition and mental images. When you’re under hypnosis, you usually feel calm and relaxed, and are more open to suggestions.
Hypnosis can be used to help you gain control over undesired behaviors or to help you cope better with anxiety or pain. It’s important to know that although you’re more open to suggestion during hypnosis, you don’t lose control over your behavior.” (See the short video about Myths and Misconceptions below.)
Since it’s a method to help you accomplish what you need or desire, its applications are endless. Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis for a particular goal or benefit. For a look at the many medical symptoms that may be alleviated, go to Hypnosis for Medical Conditions
Because each session offers new tools for change, a series of at least 3 weekly sessions is usually recommended. The Weight Loss from Within Program is 8-weeks. Sessions last from 75-90 minutes. After the intake or recap of the week, the actual hypnotic visualization takes 20-30 minutes. We then discuss the plan for the coming week and I share resources and take-home tools. Each program is tailor-made to fit your desires and motivations.
A team approach offers the greatest support, so I am happy to collaborate with your psychologist and/or medical professional.
