What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is yet another tool that you can employ to achieve wellness through balance. Hypnosis is not like the dramatized portrayal from television or movies, but rather a mechanism by which you can have greater control over your own thoughts and your body.

Hypnosis is “a state of intensified attention and receptiveness, and an increased responsiveness to an idea or to a set of ideas.” Hypnosis allows for a state of heightened openness, receptivity, and focus. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis.

Our clients use hypnosis as they seek to improve their lives by:

    • Quitting smoking
    • Stopping overeating
    • Controlling anxiety

How hypnosis works

Hypnosis is a natural process that we enter into everyday whether we realize it or not. For example, every time we become engrossed in a novel or a motion picture, we are in a natural hypnotic state. In hypnosis the conscious mind is by-passed and the subconscious mind is accessed.

What to expect in a hypnosis session

The initial session typically lasts between 75 and 90 minutes. During this time, an assessment of the client’s situation and evaluation of the client’s goals will are made.

The process of hypnosis is reviewed and the work begins. The session will end with a short debriefing and homework to reinforce the work done in the session. Subsequent sessions are one hour and will focus on the hypnotic state work with a brief check-in and close-out. Although every person is different three sessions are often ideal to address adequately an issue.
