My Approach to Hypnosis
When someone comes to me for hypnosis therapy, one of the first things I do is assure them that I don't make people bark like dogs or cluck like chickens. Many folks are familiar with hypnosis from seeing someone at a comedy club or watching a demonstration at a school assembly. This is not what I do.
My way of working is focused on bringing out the best in people. I don't do anything to violate someone's values - I wouldn't do anything that would embarrass people in front of friends, family or co-workers.
Hypnosis involves something called "trance." We encounter "trance" all the time, even if we don't know it as "hypnosis". For example, sometimes when I drive, my mind temporarily goes "somewhere else". When that happens, it's usually not a very deep trance as I can still use my brakes, change lanes, notice my surroundings and more. Once in a while the state of "trance" might be a little bit deeper. In that case, I may miss my exit, have to drive to the next one and turn around.
Another example of "trance" happens when I go to the movies. If I become engaged a movie, I can become "entranced" - the movie ends, the credits roll, and what seemed like an hour, was really two or three hours. Similarly, I sometimes finish a conversation with a close friend and what seemed to be a twenty minute phone call was really an hour!
I use the lightest form of "trance" possible and the person being hypnotized has memory of everything we say and do.
Here's what happens:
- We talk about the challenges you are having and what you want to change.
- Based on what your challenges are, I'll suggest a therapeutic procedure or procedures and review them with you so you know exactly what to expect.
- I'll guide you through the procedures to bring about the changes we talked about.
- Lastly, you'll have the opportunity to see how the changes look for your future.
I make this change as simple and effective as possible. I've been honing my practice for over 20 years so I have the experience and knowledge to help you get unstuck, heal and create the changes you want in your life.
