While we have already mentioned the acceptance of hypnosis by the American Medical Association [AMA], it is also important to note that I cannot make you do something that you do not want to do — or that you find embarrassing or demeaning.
There are many misconceptions and stereotypes surrounding the use of hypnosis. Sometimes Hollywood likes to promote these misconceptions because they make for a good storyline but that’s all they are. So it is important that you know hypnosis is safe, effective, and quick to make dramatic and lasting changes.
“You will not lose control experiencing hypnosis (as my teacher Cal Banyan likes to say) — rather you will gain back control of your life through hypnosis.”
Hypnosis is not the same as ‘sleep.’ While it’s true that you may feel quite relaxed during a session, you can also feel every other way too (sad, happy, mad, compassionate, neutral, guilty, etc.). Remember that hypnosis is a state of “focused consciousness” — not a state of “unconsciousness.” You will be awake and aware throughout our time together. You will be following instructions, describing what you may be feeling at times, listening intently, and answering questions all the while.
You cannot get “stuck” in hypnosis. Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state which makes it readily available for our use in this process but there is no chance that you will remain stranded. In fact, you will be in control of what you say, what you do, and what you think throughout each session. And, I will be there to assist and guide your progress as you let go of those dysfunctional beliefs and outdated programs that have been holding you back for months, years, and in some cases — a lifetime.
It’s important to understand that the key to your success is wrapped up inside of you. Hypnotism is not something I will do to you, rather, it is the process we will use together to unravel the obstacles that stand in your way.
