Hypnosis is a powerful tool which can be utilized to inspire change on multiple levels. It emphasizes the crossing of mind, body and spirit and can be used with the intention of accomplishing a therapeutic intervention while in an altered state of consciousness. Being in the hypnotized state makes it easier for you to experience and accept suggestions, but it does not force you to. When experiencing hypnotherapy, you are always in control while the hypnotherapist works toward facilitating a desired change which you have expressed. Through hypnosis you can get out of your conscious mind to gain access to your psychological resources and your imagination. Tapping into your subconscious through hypnotherapy is a valuable mechanism you can utilize to get more control of your life and find more balance in the way you constructively approach the challenges facing you. The vast majority of people experience hypnosis as a pleasant and relaxing experience and there are no known negative side-effects. I look forward to working with you if you think hypnotherapy is for you!
