Hypnotherapy can be an exciting journey of transformation and self-discovery. Before you get started, here are some frequently asked questions about Hypnotherapy.
Applications for Hypnotherapy are quite wide and varied. In general, hypnotherapy can help with anything that involves the mind, which can range from mental/emotional thought processes to physical behavior. From behavior modifications such smoking cessation and eating habits, and processing unresolved trauma and emotional patterns, to self development and growth, the applications are quite wide ranging.
Hypnotherapy is also good tool for larger, more complex life patterns and experiences that can range from self-esteem issues, to interpersonal relationships and complex medical issues.
You may think of your subconscious mind like a super computer or a smart phone, that can download and run many different apps. As smart and powerful as a smart phone might be, it does not know what apps are good or bad, it simply runs whatever app it is given. Hypnotherapy works by discovering what apps are responsible for causing and issue or achieving a goal, then helps to download new apps that can help to create a desired outcome or goal.
Sessions can vary from client to client, most however will do multiple sessions, where each session builds up and goes further than the previous session. It is much like peeling back layers of an onion, where we get to root cause or the core issue by unveiling and transformation negatives into positives, one step at a time.
In addition to 1-on-1 sessions, at home self-hypnosis and other self practice tools and techniques help to accelerate one's transformation.
