What is hypnotherapy and how does it work



Hypnotherapy is a process. It is a methodology by which a trained therapist helps a client to affect change in their life.  Hypnotherapy is a very misunderstood modality of healing. People often associate it with stage hypnosis, where people are programmed to do silly things against their will. The real truth is you can’t do anything against your will, even in a hypnotic state, and hypnotherapy is extremely safe and gentle.


How does Hypnotherapy work?

Hypnotherapy uses a trance-like state to gain greater access to the unconscious. Your unconscious is the key to your dreams, desires, habits, belief systems, creativity and feelings. Through hypnotherapy you begin to bridge the conscious with the unconscious, allowing for emotional well-being to occur at a deeper level of awareness.

Hypnotherapy works with neuroplasticity (i.e., the ability of the brain to change in response to experience) in order to create changes in the brain’s physical structure and physiology. This is why hypnotherapy, along with other techniques that access deeper levels of consciousness, helps you to change your emotional well being by changing your brain in positive ways. It alters the way you view yourself, your relationships, and how you think about, feel about, and respond to your world.

What are the benefits of Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy accesses your inner being at a very deep level to create effective change. It helps to bridge the unconscious (where much of our negative belief patterns and programming resides) with the conscious mind. At this deep level of consciousness, you are more available to change and reprogram limiting blocks into positive, healthy emotions and empowering self-beliefs.

Is hypnotherapy safe? 

Hypnotherapy is completely safe. You are in charge of your experience at all times. If there is some part of yourself you don’t want to connect to, you won’t.
