“I know I should stop smoking, but I keep on doing it anyway.”
“I’ve been through so much talk therapy and still I’m stuck in my self-sabotaging ways.”
“I can name all my cognitive distortions, use my coping skills, but I still feel like shit.”
If you resonated with any of those statements, hypnosis may be the missing piece in the puzzle to finally feel at your best. And no, I won’t make you cluck like a chicken or bark like a dog.
Hypnotherapy is a powerful science-backed treatment that is effective for a wide variety of symptoms and struggles. I use self-hypnosis everyday for my wellbeing (yes, I can teach you too).
In fact, you may be in a natural hypnotic trance now as you’re reading these words. Although my words are not as enthralling as Glennon Doyle’s or J.R.R. Tolkien’s stories, your attention is so focused on these words, that maybe everything else fades into the background, so much so you may have not noticed the noises or distractions around you.
You’ve probably used your natural talent of daydreaming during a boring meeting or lecture, thinking about what you’d rather be doing instead. Or perhaps you’ve experienced highway hypnosis way too many times, completely missing your turn because you were so absorbed belting out the latest Billie Eilish tune.
Your body is here while your mind is elsewhere. This is hypnosis.
And we can use your creativity & natural talent to help you heal your body and mind.
Hypnosis uses guided imagery, metaphors, stories, and even your body postures to create deep nervous system relaxation and laser-focused attention to achieve an elevated state of consciousness to unlock your unconscious. During this natural state, you are more open to positive suggestions to create positive changes and attain goals in your life. All you have to do is listen to my voice, breathe and be, and enjoy your inner adventure.
That feeling right after you had the best massage of your life, completely calm, comfortable and free, while also having the most enlightening epiphany. Many of my clients describe it as feeling similar to a guided mindfulness meditation but even more relaxing.
What is Hypnotherapy Used For?
YES! At it’s core, hypnosis is an integrative mind-body medicine technique. My clients enjoy interweaving hypnotherapy with CBT, ACT, EMDR, and/or Internal Family Systems-informed work. In fact, research studies and metanalyses indicate that hypnosis amplifies treatment effects and helps positive changes last longer.
