Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic approach that utilizes the state of hypnosis to access the subconscious mind, allowing individuals to unlock their inner potential and make positive changes in their lives. This practice is based on the principle that an individual’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected, and by influencing one aspect, the other two can be positively impacted.
Through hypnotherapy, an individual is guided into a state of deep relaxation and focus, allowing them to bypass their critical and analytical level of mind and connect with their subconscious. In this state, the individual becomes highly receptive to suggestions made by the hypnotherapist, which can help them address negative thought patterns and behavior, reduce anxiety and stress, and overcome various psychological and physical challenges.
Hypnotherapy is a safe and drug-free approach that has been extensively researched and proven to be effective in treating a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, pain management, weight loss, and phobias. It is also a highly customizable practice, with each session tailored to the specific needs and goals of the individual. Whether you are looking to improve your mental and emotional well-being or overcome a specific challenge, hypnotherapy can provide a powerful and transformative experience.

How does it feel to be in hypnosis?
We are all naturally skilled in the art of hypnosis, as all hypnosis is essentially self-hypnosis!
Throughout our daily lives, we enter into hypnotic states multiple times. For instance, while driving our car, we may become absorbed in our thoughts and arrive at our destination without fully remembering the route we took. Similar experiences occur when we become engrossed in reading or watching media, or during the transitional states between wakefulness and sleep.
Hypnosis is a natural, safe, and peaceful state of mind. Some individuals may experience sensations of numbness, heaviness, or lightness in different parts of their body, tingling sensations, eye fluttering, or the sensation of being in two places at once. Some people go into a deep hypnotic state, while others go into a lighter state. Most individuals fall somewhere in between. Regardless of the depth of the hypnotic state, one is always aware and in control, and can exit the state at any time by simply opening their eyes and returning to their normal conscious state of awareness.
What is a hypnotherapy session like?
If you are a first-time client, the process will begin with an overview of hypnosis and an explanation of what you can expect from the session. During this time, any questions you may have can be answered. An intake interview will follow, where a review of your current life situation and habits can be discussed, along with any relevant past information.
Thereafter, you will then be guided through the induction process, which is a progressive relaxation technique designed to bring you into a state of deep relaxation where your subconscious is most accessible. Depending on your goals, one or multiple sessions may be required and may incorporate different techniques such as motivational techniques, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), guided imagery, visualization, age regression, parts therapy, past-life progression, or future-life progression.
Afterwards, you will be given an audio recording of your hypnosis session to listen to daily for the following few weeks to reinforce the progress made during the session.
