Hypnosis can be defined simply as a narrowing, shrinking, or fixating of attention. Hypnosis is a safe and natural process especially when facilitated by a knowledgeable hypnotist. We all experience various hypnotic phenomena in the course of a normal day: we may “zone out” when performing any of the numerous habitual tasks we complete on a daily basis such as taking a shower, walking the dog, doing the dishes, or when we seem to be on “autopilot” when driving to work each day. While we have all experienced hypnosis unknowingly at times — I am a certified hypnotist that is trained to guide you into the hypnotic state and utilize the power of hypnosis to improve your life.
The answer is absolutely! As discussed above, hypnosis is a naturally occurring state that everyone has already experienced on a regular basis. Hypnotic states are so seamlessly woven into our everyday life that most people usually don’t even realize that they are hypnotized. We have all experienced everyday hypnosis, for example: when driving to our destination we become so engrossed in thinking about a particular upcoming event we either miss the exit ramp entirely and keep on driving or are astonished the 2 hour trip passed by so quickly. Time distortion is a good sign that you have been in a hypnotic state.
Yes, hypnosis is safe. The process we will be using in our sessions together is not only safe, but also very effective. Hypnosis has been approved by the American Medical Association [AMA] since 1958 and has been routinely used by medical professionals, psychologists, and hypnotherapists for over 200 years.
Hypnosis, by itself, is simply a specific ‘state’ of consciousness. Hypnotism is the application of this ‘state’ to affect change. Hypnotism is a process whereby the benefits of the hypnotic state are used to help people make changes and accomplish their goals in life when nothing else has helped. Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state and is the key ingredient of the hypnotism session. The insights and realizations that are gained throughout your sessions will lay the groundwork for the changes you hope for and propel you onto the success you have been searching for.
When you arrive for your hypnosis session, all you need to do is be willing and able to follow instructions. That’s it.
