Clinical Hypnosis or Hypnotherapy uses heightened levels of concentration that produces a state of deep relaxation. In this state, the critical and rational mind allows the subconscious mind to come forward and be open to therapeutic suggestions.
It is common for people to confuse clinical hypnosis with the type of hypnosis used for entertainment (stage hypnosis). In clinical hypnosis the goal is health, wellness and therapy. This means the entire process is different and the outcome is focused on the specific purpose of maximizing potential, changing limiting beliefs and behaviors and gaining insight and wisdom.
I use what is called Ericksonian Conversational Hypnosis. It is one of least intrusive methods of hypnotic induction. it is very subtle in its application and very capable of producing safe light, medium or deep hypnotic states. The induction itself is very simple and involves nothing more than indirect communication (suggestions) and can include metaphors, emotional tone, imagery, the telling of a story or a detailed descriptions and visualizations. Once you have entered into a deeper state of relaxation I use a combination of different therapeutic methods that can range from simple suggestions to deeper therapeutic conversations.
Clinical Hypnosis is an inward focused state of relaxation and imaging that allows both your conscious and subconscious minds to co-ordinate and focus together. This joining of the conscious and subconscious gives you unlimited ways to address your issues and in multiple ways. Because it draws from both your critical analytical mind and your intuitive creative mind it leverages both and doubles the tools you have to address and change things in your life.
Hypnosis can help with issues such as:
Getting around psychological blocks
Stage fright and phobia mastery
Helping with decision making
Providing a way to clarify goals
Chronic pain problems
