What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis is simply a deeply relaxed state that is induced in your therapy session. Hypnosis is a trance state in which your active thinking mind turns off and your subconscious mind takes over. Consider how many times throughout the day you move in and out of trance state naturally, such as driving to work and not remembering the journey. “Zoning out” in a conversation in which you have to actively re-engage your mind. You are in hypnotic trances in both of these situations. During your hypnotherapy session your “thinking mind” will shut off and your subconscious will take over. This means that all of the emotions, memories and habits that are stored in your subconscious can be addressed directly, without the filter of the conscious mind.
Can anyone be hypnotized? How does it work?
The answer is simply, yes! Anyone can be hypnotized. As long as you are open and willing, you will be able to achieve the relaxed state necessary for hypnotherapy. When you are under hypnosis we will talk about the issues that you would like to work on and explore their roots in your subconscious. Later, we will figure out what new beliefs, emotions and behaviors you would like going forward and will “install” them in your subconscious. You can think of your brain as a computer that will get a software update! I will also record parts of the session on your phone so that you can listen to them daily and reinforce the goals you are working on.
Will I remember what happens in my session?
It’s important to note that although hypnotherapy involves you being in a very relaxed state, you will still be in control of everything that you say and do. You will remember everything that happened in your session and will be able to use it make more positive choices for you moving ahead.

Your First Appointment
First appointments are always scheduled for 90 minutes to allow enough time to get to know each other. We will spend 20-30 minutes talking about what brings you in and then the hypnotherapy will begin! You will relax in a comfy recliner and a blanket and pillow are available at your request. From there, I will help you get into a very deep state of relaxation so that you can uncover the root of your pain. If you wish, I will record parts of the session so that you can listen later and help reinforce what we worked on.
