Hypnosis: Hypnosis allows your body and mind to experience deep relaxation so that we can then help you to address the mental and physical states which are causing your behavioral problems. It is a collaborative process in which you allow your imagination to follow the guidance of the therapist to evoke new positive emotions and rehearse positive behavioral change.
What is Hypnosis? Most of our clients want to know what hypnosis is, how it works, who is in control and can it help them? We know that hypnotherapy can appear confusing. It is our goal to help demystify and explain the simple process of hypnosis so that you are able to make an informed choice about whether it is right for you.

How DOES it work?
Learned behaviors are stored in our subconscious minds. Hypnosis works through using hypnotic relaxation to calm the critical conscious mind so that our subconscious minds are able to concentrate more acutely on positive suggestions without interference.
Who is in CONTROL?
It is a common fallacy that under hypnosis the client is not in control. You can hear and respond to everything during hypnosis; in fact we want you to be an active participant in the therapy. You will be able to emerge from hypnosis easily and at any time you choose. A therapist can not make you do something that you do not want to do.
Does it WORK?
Hypnotherapy has been used in the fields of medicine, sports performance and personal well-being. It has many benefits and can help address a number of problems from unwanted habits or behaviors or gaining relief from a specific emotional issue, to simply increasing self-confidence and improving the way we see ourselves.
