What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a type of therapy that uses hypnosis to help individuals achieve a state of deep relaxation and focus. Hypnosis is a natural state of mind that we all experience throughout the day, such as when we are daydreaming or completely absorbed in an activity. During hypnosis, a hypnotherapist guides the individual through a series of relaxation techniques and suggestions to access their subconscious mind.
Hypnotherapy can be used to address a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, phobias, addiction, and chronic pain. It can also be used to support personal growth and development, such as improving confidence, enhancing creativity, and achieving goals.

How to Find a Qualified Hypnotherapist
If you are interested in trying hypnotherapy, it is important to find a qualified hypnotherapist who is trained and certified in the practice. Here are some tips for finding a qualified hypnotherapist:
Check their Credentials
Look for a hypnotherapist who is certified by a reputable hypnotherapy organization. It’s important that your hypnotherapist is also a trained and licensed psychotherapist.
Read reviews from past clients to get an idea of the hypnotherapist’s style and effectiveness.
Schedule a Consultation
Schedule a consultation with the hypnotherapist to discuss your goals and get a sense of their approach. This can also give you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the process.
Trust Your Gut
Ultimately, it is important to trust your instincts when choosing a hypnotherapist. If you don’t feel comfortable with a particular hypnotherapist, it may be best to continue your search.
Hypnotherapy can be a powerful tool for improving both physical and mental health, as well as supporting personal growth and development. If you are a health and wellness enthusiast looking to explore the benefits of hypnotherapy, be sure to do your research and find a qualified hypnotherapist who can guide you through the process. With the right guidance and an open mind, hypnotherapy can be a transformative experience that can help you achieve your goals and live a more fulfilling life.
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.
