A deep meditative or trance state with a higher level of focus and concentration allows information stored in the subconscious mind to become more accessible. Hypnosis is considered an altered state of consciousness that allows the rational mind to take a back seat and gives the client access to the subconscious.
Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic process that helps you gain insight and perspective into intrusive thought patterns, complex emotions, subconscious belief systems, and repressed/suppressed emotional and behavioral patterns. This insight and perspective will ultimately lead to a happier and healthier lifestyle
Some other benefits include:
Extinguish the intensity of anxiety, panic, and fear.
Develop emotional identification skills and learn to regulate the nervous system and emotional brain.
Desensitize emotions associated with trauma.
Dig deeper into the root cause of the distress or get to the source of the issue.
Develop new healthy belief systems and affirmations that reinforce new healthy behaviors.
We use a comforting and supportive induction process that allows you to feel as safe as possible. The induction process uses a combination of guided instructions, imagery, breathing, and music to reach a trance state. Clients report being in a trance state similar to a deep state of meditation.
- Hypnotherapy works within the subconscious mind where negative belief systems stemming from traumatic experiences are stored. Once the subconscious mind is accessed, clients are able to begin changing distortions and emotional confusion associated with the trauma.
- No, While in a state of hypnosis the client is still in control. Any suggestions or recommendations given by the therapist can be rejected by the client. If you decide you no longer want to proceed, you will simply open your eyes to come out of the trance.
Hypnosis is the trance state a client is in while participating in a hypnotherapy session. You can be in hypnosis without doing therapy.
Hypnotherapy can be described as hypnosis + psychotherapy = hypnotherapy.
A hypnotherapy process includes a variety of different therapeutic techniques including regressions, progressions, anchors, energy/emotional release, expression, treating shock, and healing.
We use a combination of music, breathing techniques, and eye fixation to induce clients into a trance state.
It is your choice if you would like to lie down or stay sitting up. Your therapist will give you a moment to center yourself and take your own breath while the music is playing before starting.
The setting is calm, relaxing, and grounded. Your therapist will hold this space for you so you can do your therapeutic work.
- Hypnosis and hypnotherapy can feel vulnerable. Often more so than traditional therapy. A client and their therapist needs to feel a comfortable level of trust. Each client reach’s this point at different times.
