What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a natural state of mind with numerous beneficial characteristics, such as an extraordinary quality of relaxation and increased responsiveness to suggestions. When in hypnosis, people tend to feel physically relaxed and mentally present.

The article aims to provide information that will help you gain a better understanding of what hypnosis is and how you can learn and benefit from its techniques.

Why would I use Hypnosis as an adjunct to my physician’s treatment?

During my therapeutic sessions, I play a crucial role in assisting clients by integrating the power of hypnotherapy into their conventional medical treatment for various purposes. This includes aiding individuals in managing and alleviating pain, conquering phobias, and fears, and preparing themselves mentally and emotionally for medical procedures, among other areas.

One significant aspect of my work involves collaborating with physicians and other healthcare professionals to complement their treatment plans effectively.

Here are some of the specific areas where a Clinical Hypnotherapist can provide valuable support

Pain Management: One of the primary focuses of my practice is helping individuals cope with and reduce pain through the utilization of hypnotherapy. This approach is particularly beneficial for chronic pain conditions, post-surgery recovery, and various other pain-related issues.

Phobias and Fears: Many people harbor deep-seated fears or phobias that can interfere with their medical care. For example, a common fear is the aversion to needles. Through hypnotherapy, I work with clients to overcome these anxieties, making medical procedures and treatments more accessible and less stressful.

Surgery Preparation: Preparing for surgery can be anxiety-inducing for many individuals. I specialize in helping clients release the worries and anxieties associated with upcoming surgeries. By using hypnotherapy, we can instill a sense of calm, confidence, and positivity in the patient, contributing to a smoother surgical experience.

Dental Treatment: A fear of dental procedures, particularly the dreaded dental drill, is a widespread issue. Through hypnotherapy, I assist individuals in conquering their dental fears, allowing them to receive necessary treatments without distress or hesitation.

Understanding What is Hypnosis - How can I use Hypnotherapy for other things besides Medical?

There are many reasons why people often use Hypnosis. The biggest reason is they are sick and tired of being sick and tired. Once people get to this point, then they are truly ready to TAKE ACTION for themselves. Hypnotherapy is not a quick fix, a placebo, and one time and done. Hypnotherapy is like building your muscle tone in the body. Repeat, repeat, repeat.

Is Hypnotherapy for me?

This is a great question. You will need to decide if you are willing to do some work in replacing strong belief patterns, and habits to replace with what you want. You will be the co-therapist in this role and will primarily be doing the work for yourself. If you are not quite ready to do some heavy lifting for yourself, then “maybe” it’s just not your time yet. Yes, I did say yet. When we are fully aware of our hints to ourselves to make a change and we haven’t, we will get stronger hints at another time. I will be there when you’re ready…
