Hypnotherapy Near Me
Have you ever googled hypnotherapy near me?
What did you find when you searched for hypnotherapist near me?
Chances are you found a list of people in your area who offer hypnotherapy but you did’t know where to start or how to choose the best hypnotherapist in your area.
As a certified clinical hypnotherapist and psychotherapist, here’s what I tell all my new potential clients to look for when they are searching for hypnotherapy near me in a google search.
How to Choose the Best Hypnotherapist Near Me
1. Schedule a free consultation session to meet with the hypnotherapist you are interested in working with. A good hypnotherapist will offer a free consultation call to discuss all your questions and to see if you are a good fit for hypnotherapy.
2. Make sure that they are certified in clinical hypnotherapy. This will weed out anyone who didn’t receive a certified clinical hypnotherapy education.
3. This is very important. Make sure that the hypnotherapist is also a psychotherapist. Legally, a hypnotherapist can only call themselves a hypnotherapist if they have a Master’s Degree or higher in the mental health or medical professional field. Many people call themselves hypnotherapists when they are truly hypnotists. Hypnotists don’t have the education or training in psychotherapy and trauma that is crucial to the makings of a great hypnotherapist. Making this distinction is key to finding the best hypnotherapist near me.
4. Trauma-Informed. Make sure that your hypnotherapist is trauma-informed. Trauma-informed means that the hypnotherapist understands the impact of trauma and understand paths for recovery. They recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma in clients and family systems. And most importantly, they know how to actively avoid re-traumatization.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy works with the subconscious mind to remove self-sabotaging behaviors, limiting beliefs, and blocks that prevent you from leading your best life – in love, career, finance, health, and so much more.
Hypnotherapy is a powerful therapeutic technique that accesses your subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind is 90% of the mind and is where all of your feelings, emotions, long-term memory, habits, patterns, beliefs, and behaviors are stored – which makes hypnotherapy so effective. We have direct access to heal your issue at its core.
How Does Hypnotherapy Work?
With hypnotherapy, we have direct access to your subconscious mind and are able to go to the root of your issue and heal it. Through the process of hypnotherapy, we are able to go to the exact origin of your issue, identify how it is affecting you in your present life, and heal it.
From there, you will learn new tools, resources, and practices to use in your everyday life. You will leave the hypnotherapy session feeling lighter, empowered, and ready to create active change in your life.
How is Hypnotherapy Different from Talk Therapy?
Hypnotherapy is different than talk therapy because in hypnotherapy we access your subconscious mind – which is 90% of your brain. Talk therapy works with your conscious mind – the other 10% part of your brain that analyzes, computes, and discerns.
Hypnotherapy goes both deeper and faster than talk therapy. For this reason, it is my preferred method of therapy.
What Happens During a Hypnotherapy Session?
The hypnotherapy session begins with soft, relaxing music and relaxation techniques to take you deep into a state of relaxation. Your eyes will be closed for the majority of the session. You can choose to lie down or sit up, whichever feels most comfortable to you.
You and I will then dialogue about your issue from your subconscious mind and very much like a guided meditation or a relaxing visualization, we will go through the process of accessing the root of your issue.
Once we discover that, we will remove the old, negative block and replace it with new, healthy ways of being in your life.
