Hypnotherapy is a technique that uses the hypnotic state, which enables changes in perception and memory, a major increase in response to suggestion, and the potential for controlling many physiologic functions that are usually involuntary.
Hypnotherapy uses guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness that is sometimes called a trance. The person’s attention is so focused while in this state that anything going on around the person is temporarily blocked out or ignored. In this naturally occurring state, a person may focus his or her attention—with the help of a trained therapist—on specific thoughts or tasks.
As a Certified Hypnotherapist, I use this treatment to help clients with weight reduction, smoking cessation, alcoholism, anger management, ADD/ADHD, anxiety, fears & phobias, insomnia, sexual problems, children’s issues, and past life regression.
