Hypnotherapy is a powerful treatment modality used in psychotherapy and health. A growing body of research now validates hypnosis as a highly effective tool for pain reduction, stress, anxiety, and a range of medical issues. It is unfortunate that so many have distorted views of hypnosis. In the therapeutic relationship, unlike in the entertainment industry, clients access a peaceful state of internal focused concentration, which allows for creative insight and higher awareness — this state of focused concentration is not unlike the brain wave state that is achieved in deep meditation.
In clinical hypnosis with a qualified practitioner, the client is in COMPLETE CONTROL of the process. Anything you’ve seen or heard about regarding stage hypnosis is nothing at all like what you’ll experience in a hypnotherapy session with one of our clinicians. You’ll find clinical hypnosis to be an extremely effective and gentle, healing tool for change. Your session will be recorded in CD or MP3 version to assist you in feeling safe, secure and in control. Your session’s recording is then yours to keep for use at home and for continued reinforcement of the hypnotic work completed in session.
