  • What is Hypnosis?

    When people hear the word “hypnosis”, they immediately think of swinging watches, spinning spirals and mind-control that they see in the movies.  While it can be, it’s not really like that.

    Hypnotic trance exists in many different forms in everyday life, for example when you are watching your favorite TV show or reading a good book or daydreaming.  We become hypnotized all of the time without our awareness, into particular mindsets. Many of these mindsets are created when we are children and learning to navigate the world around us. Powerful post-hypnotic suggestions can stay with us for years, especially in areas where self-esteem is concerned.  Often, the job of the therapist is to de-hypnotize the client.  

    I am certified in “Ericksonian” style hypnosis, which uses more of what it is called indirect suggestions. Indirect suggestions are much harder to resist because they are often not even recognized as suggestions by the conscious mind.  

    Hypnosis helps to open and relax the mind, works on many different topics and enables a space for healing to occur.
