What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is simply a restful state of mind that you have experienced many times within the daily routine. For instance, when we become so intrigued with a TV program that we are unaware of anything else around us. Or ,when we drive a car from point A to point B, yet are unaware of how we actually got there. If we were to take suggestions in this state, we are most likely to focus deeply on suggestions made. Pre-established goals are directed from the therapist to the client to submit thoughts into the subconscious mind, thereby reinforcing desired goals as set by the client.

Who decides the area of focus and goal setting?

The client always decides which behavior he/she would like to change and final objectives are set with input of both client and therapist. A consult occurs prior to the actual hypnosis induction so all areas of concern are addressed. If significant medical issues are at hand a medical clearance may be required prior to entering the hypnosis session. Suggestions are developed together.
