Hypnosis is a wonderful tool for change and can be used in
conjunction with other therapies. It can be used
successfully for: weight loss, pain management,
smoking cessation, improving test scores, stress management,
improving sports performance, lowering blood pressure and
improving health conditions.
If you could
change one thing about yourself, right now, what would
that be? Hypnosis is all about change. Changing
habits, beliefs and behaviors. Getting better.
Many people feel trapped by their habits and attitudes and
they try to use willpower to change. That's in the
conscious mind. Think of all the times you've
consciously said to yourself, OK, that's it, I'm not going
to smoke that cigarette, eat that extra muffin, have that
next drink. I'm going to hit the gym every day, eat
healthy, conquer my fear of heights, and I'm not going to
lose my temper again either!" Or "this year, I'm going
to do the marathon, I'm going to place the the tri...I'll
train five days a week and I'll get back in shape. No
more junk food and no more late nights!"
decide to do this with willpower. And it might work for a
time. But subconsciously, you resist change. You
find yourself slipping back into the same old troubling
behavior, automatically. And when willpower fails, you feel
ashamed and frustrated, as if you don't have a choice but to
stay the same. Stuck. Or worse: out of control.
gives you a choice.
It's an effective and safe method of changing behaviors.
How does it work?
When you are in hypnosis, you
relax in a very deep way. We bypass the critical
factor of your conscious mind, and we work with your
subconscious mind by giving it suggestions. The
suggestions "re-program" your subconscious, motivating
change in a very powerful way. People are often
surprised at how easy and enjoyable the process of change
becomes, and how the feeling of choice opens up new
possibilities and a sense of well being. You can
choose to stop a bad habit. You can choose to let go
of pain. You can let go of stress.
When you are in hypnosis, we bypass the "critical
factor" of you conscious mind...that part of you that
analyzes, thinks, and "solves" problems. And, as we said
earlier, it's where your willpower resides. Although
the conscious mind is great for learning new things, and
making decisions, it's not very good at dealing with
ingrained habits and behaviors; those troublesome habits
persist in the subconscious, and we need to change them
at the subconscious level.
With hypnosis you can regain healthy
control. By the way, forget what you've seen on the
stage or in movies; you are also in control during the
entire hypnosis process. If you resist hypnosis, it
does not work. And you can't do anything or say
anything in hypnosis that you don't want to. You are
relaxed, but awake. You will remember what you
Get in control, stay in
control. Then get on with your life!
