Hypnosis is a powerful tool that allows you to harness your mind and help you take control of your life. It is a pleasant, natural state that opens the door to the subconscious allowing you to accept positive suggestions on how to manage problems specific to the work you want to do, and redirect your personal energy toward your desired outcome.
You are always in control during this process and can stop it at will whenever you open your eyes.
When involved in hypnotic work you remain aware of your surroundings, you feel good, and have a very relaxing experience. During trance, which is a state of consciousness that is similar to being in a daydream, you are primed to learn. You tap into your unconscious mind and utilize your own powerful inner resources to promote personal growth, healing, and reach your goals with ease.
The experiential aspect of Self-Hypnosis or Hypnotherapy is an amazing instrument. The state of being in trance is the hallmark of Hypnotherapy or Hypnosis. The fact is that we go into a trance state quite spontaneously several times each day. Sometimes it is an alert trance and at other times it is a relaxation trance. When you find yourself, as we all do, so involved in some process that you lose yourself, you are actually in trance. For example, when driving and you suddenly become aware that you have been elsewhere in your mind and you have not been conscious of driving, you have been in trance. Or when you are involved in an activity that has you completely absorbed, such as listening or playing music, reading or writing, looking at or painting, you have been in trance. The state of trance is a pleasurable one, where your conscious mind takes a back seat, and the unconscious is activated where deeper work can be accomplished. Dreams are a very common manifestation of this state.
With my gentle assistance on Zoom or FaceTime a client can enter a hypnotic trance so that we open the doorway between consciousness and the unconscious mind. At no time is the individual out of control during trance, yet everyday thought processes are set aside in favor of emotions, experiences, and memories. This pathway into the unconscious can be a great ally in therapeutic success and self-improvement for both individuals and couples.
