What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a deep state of relaxation and focused awareness, where the conscious mind becomes quiet, yet the subconscious mind is alert and receptive to suggestion. When given a suggestion that is within the bounds of a person's belief system and moral orientation, the subconscious mind organizes it as a new and accepted part of its belief system.
Hypnosis allows gentle and direct access to the subconscious, focuses on the root cause of problems, enables one to create new beliefs and facilitates growth and change.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis by a hypnotherapist, who has received at minimum a Masters Degree, and is licensed as a mental health practitioner.
Hypnotherapy can be an effective and quick way to help you make changes in thoughts, beliefs, feelings, and behaviors that have contributed to your problems.
It requires active participation of the participant, you are never under control of the hypnotherapist and you are aware of everything that takes place during hypnosis.
Hypnotherapy has been found to be helpful with many types of issues, such as anxiety, depression, chronic and acute pain, habit or addiction problems, to increase concentration and performance in sports and in work, and enhance relationships.
Individual and group sessions are available. Go to Groups/Classes for more information.
