Transform from the inside out
About my practice:
As a hypnotist, I combine multiple powerful modalities such as imagery, neuro-linguistic programming, and the theory of the mind to dive into your subconscious mind to help create behavioral shifts that empower you in your life. While conventional therapy helps one understand patterns from their past, hypnosis helps clients move forward towards their goals and future. Through our work together, we will explore unwanted behavioral patterns, thinking errors, and habits you feel stuck in to create new, more adaptive behaviors, thinking, and habits. Together, we will do dynamic work that allows you to leave our sessions with new tools and mechanisms that shift your energy, making you feel more in charge of your life.
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is not a strange state but a natural state that everyone has experienced.
Have you ever gone to a movie and gotten so wrapped up in it that you got a series of visceral responses?
That is hypnosis.
Have you ever driven, and your mind has wandered off, and you don't remember part of the drive?
That is hypnosis.
How most people experience hypnosis is that their eyes are closed, they are more relaxed, calm, for much of the time focused, sometimes the mind wonders a little. That's the reality. Hypnosis is not about going into some weird trans-state where you are losing connection with reality.
Who is a good candidate for hypnosis?
Everyone can be hypnotized. With that said, the best candidates are those open to the experience. Hypnosis is not some spooky practice of mind control but rather a collaborative experience. The best clients are those eager to grow and change, dedicated to working between sessions.
How does hypnosis work?
The subconscious comprises 88% of the mind and is purely reactive, devoid of logic, reason, and willpower. Regardless of all the logical reasons you may want to change a habit, like stopping eating chocolate, the conscious mind, which houses will, is only 12% of the mind.
You may be able to make a change, like going chocolate-free, but after a few weeks, or the very moment you are emotionally triggered, willpower is up against 88% of a routine of wanting to feel comforted and relieved in a particular way. The associations and the familiarity of the subconscious patterning are why the word "self-sabotage" exists.
Most people are unaware of when the subconscious mind is activated because it is faster and more efficient than your conscious mind, constantly projecting forward the past you used to be.
Your subconscious mind doesn't understand the logical reasoning for what you want. It just reacts, and its sole function is to do so quickly.
When there's a conflict between something we want and the way that we're behaving, this is where hypnosis comes in.
Hypnosis overloads the mind's critical filter, slowing down brainwaves to create a relaxing hyper-focused state granting access to the subconscious.
For hypnotherapy, this is where the mind is receptive to one's unconscious positive thoughts and suggestions.
While in hypnosis, new associations are made, and new neural pathways for change that a person can then build from. When the thought gets repeated, the path grows more substantial and takes over as the automatic reaction, meaning the behavior the person wants isn't a struggle anymore. It becomes their new normal.
Simply put, hypnosis empowers us to step into our own desired experience more accessible.
