Clinical Hypnotherapy is performed in a calm, therapeutic environment. We will guide you into a relaxed, focused state and ask you to think about experiences and situations in positive ways that can help you change the way you think and behave. Hypnotherapy can be used to treat conditions associated with chronic pain, childbirth (also known as hypnobirth), anxiety, phobias, smoking cessation, weight loss, and bad habits. It can be used to help improve sleep, learning disorders, test anxiety, sport performance, and communication issues.
HOW IS CLINICAL HYPNOTHERAPY DIFFERENT FROM TALK THERAPY?
Clinical hypnotherapy is quite different from talk therapy. During session, we’ll talk less about the symptoms you are experiencing from day to day and instead focus on using hypnosis to discover and remove the cause of the problem. Together, we remove the cause and after use positive, healthy suggestions to learn positive ways of thinking, feeling, and being.
CAN THE HYPNOTHERAPIST CONTROL MY MIND?
As per the social work code of ethics, it is unethical for me to control someone else. Because you are in control of your experience in hypnosis, no one can control your mind in hypnosis. You decide which suggestions you want to accept and which you don’t-especially if a suggestion goes against your value system, religion, etc.
