About Hypnosis

It is a well know fact that the human mind is incredibly powerful.  For every thought you have, there's a physical response. Hypnosis, or hypnotherapy, uses techniques like guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focused attention to achieve hightened states of awareness.  This state of awareness allows you to access and harness the power of your mind and gives people tools to reduce anxiety, overcome feeling overwhelmed, build self-confidence, build self-awareness, gain control over addictive behaviors and patterns, erase fears and phobias, enhance performance, reduce and eliminate depression, and obssessive thoughts, and much much more.

Therapeutic hypnosis, also know as clinical hypnosis, employs this completely natural state of consciousness that we all experience every day to bring about lasting changes in your life.  I use hypnotherapy as an aid to psychotherapy with most of my clients, because it allows people to explore and change painful thoughts and to enable and empower my clients to do things differently.  

The truth about hypnosis..........

It is one of the most powerful tools to change the way your mind experiences the world.  It can gently release blocks and fears, and to create a new inner belief that will se the wheels into motion to make changes in the way you think, feel, and behave.  You have the power to make your brain happy or sad, afraid or confident, healthy or unhealthy.  We are constantly hypnotizing ourselves, but often, we are our own worst enemy.  When we criticize ourselves, hate ourselves, and put ourselves down, and then reinforce these fears and limitations, we do negative programming.  In hypnosis, I can help you create positive programming that will help you have a better life by working with your mind directly.
