Are You Looking for an Alternative to Talk or Cognitive Therapy?

Are you struggling to stop smoking or to lose weight? Do you suffer from crippling performance anxiety? Perhaps you have low levels of self-confidence. Are you afflicted with chronic pain? Or, do you suffer from a terminal illness and worry about your quality of life in your final days? Do you find that talk therapy just isn’t enough to help you through your problems?  Do you wish to take control of your healing and experience self-empowerment?

Struggling with quitting a habit or making necessary, healthy life changes can be extremely challenging. It can also be extremely painful and difficult to get ready for a test, a music performance or an athletic competition. And, when you suffer from an illness, pain is often an everyday experience.

It is not uncommon to face these problems and feel like there isn’t any help. You may have tried nicotine patches for smoking cessation or traditional weight management programs and felt that you just couldn’t succeed. Perhaps you have chronic pain and are tired of taking pills on a daily basis. Maybe you’ve tried various therapeutic approaches, such as talk or behavioral therapy and felt that they fell short. If this sounds familiar, hypnotherapy (clinical hypnosis) may help.

What is Clinical Hypnosis?

In hypnotherapy sessions, you do not go to sleep. You are in control at all times, so as you enter an extremely relaxed state, it is of your own will. This extremely relaxed state helps you reach a different state of consciousness. This consciousness shifts the focus from your conscious mind to your subconscious mind. During clinical hypnosis sessions, beneficial, desired suggestions are sent to your subconscious mind.

Clinical hypnosis helps you to not simply reflect on what you see as problems on the surface. It also allows you to evaluate your inner issues and increase your focus and attention. A focused mind can be equated to harnessing the sun’s power for solar energy. For instance, if you suffer from a lack of self-confidence, hypnosis can help you tap into memories in which you were successful. Self-hypnosis is a great way to learn the art of self-control and self-empowerment.

Hypnotherapy Can Provide You with Tools for Success

Hypnosis has been around for thousands of years and has been effective for countless people. Clinical hypnosis is a method of creating mind-body unity and has been proven to be extremely effective for stopping patterns of unhealthy behavior like smoking or overeating. I once had a client who was an obsessive smoker. His father has died of lung cancer, his mother, who was also a smoker, died from emphysema. My client wanted to be around for his grandchildren. After years of struggling with nicotine addiction, he stopped smoking after only two sessions, even though he had a high stress job in corrections. Not only did I receive a nice thank you from my client, but I also received one from his wife.

Hypnotherapy has also been proven to reduce the pain and decrease anxiety. It can also help with sexual dysfunction and related sexual issues for which there is no concrete medical cause. For example, hypnotherapy can help men overcome premature ejaculation or women who do not enjoy sex. In short, clinical hypnosis can often help to break through psychological blocks.

In sessions, I will teach you techniques for self-hypnosis. After you experience hypnotherapy in my office, I will send you home with a digital recording of that session. Like most things in life, repetition is crucial to the success of clinical hypnosis. Hypnosis is not magic or voodoo, it is simply the practice of harnessing the amazing power of your own mind.

With help, support and instruction, it is possible for you to break bad habits, experience less emotional and physical pain and heal. Hypnotherapy can help you experience relief and begin living the life you want to live.

But, you may still have questions or concerns about hypnosis therapy…

I don’t want anyone to control me.

Contrary to the views expressed in movies and other media, nobody can take over your mind during hypnosis. My way of approaching clinical hypnosis is collaborative. We will work together during sessions in a cooperative, respectful manner.

Isn’t hypnotherapy expensive? I’m not sure I can afford it.

It is important to put cost into perspective. If you are seeking clinical hypnosis for smoking cessation, you may spend more initially to help you quit. However, the amount you will save over the years—both financially and as a result of better health— is invaluable. I would like you to consider what your money could be spent on instead of cigarettes. For example, you can spend it on a vacation, buy a new house or car, pay off your debt, or save for retirement.

Isn’t hypnosis the devil’s work?

Hypnosis by an ethical practitioner is very respectful. You will not compromise your values in any way. Hypnosis utilizes your own talents and strengths. In no way will clinical hypnosis cause you to engage in negative and destructive behaviors.
