Hypnosis is a state of enhanced, focused attention. It is a state we all naturally and spontaneously enter several times a day. Have you ever driven your car along the highway and missed your exit because you were focused on something else, or watched a movie and not heard certain noises in the room or your name being called because you were so focused on the movie? These are natural states of hypnosis. When you daydream, you are in a state of self hypnosis. The mind is focusing intently on something specific. All hypnosis is self hypnosis.
In hypnotherapy, we offer specific techniques and tools for individuals to discover clarity in their lives and reach specific goals promoting behavior change while in a state of relaxation. The process of hypnosis is really a process of guided relaxation, of just relaxing and letting go of stress, tension or worries. Once you feel relaxed, I guide you with specific tools to help achieve your desired goal through the use of guided imagery and other techniques. You will be conscious, aware and in control throughout the process.
