Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy, as the term suggests, is the practice of hypnosis for therapeutic purposes. Hypnosis uses guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness that is sometimes called a trance. Hypnosis is useful in therapy, as the hypnotic state allows people to explore painful thoughts, feelings, and memories they might have hidden from their conscious minds. Hypnosis is often used to help with a variety of problems, such as breaking bad habits or coping with stress or trauma. Think this approach might be right for you?

Hypnotherapy is a dynamic and vital therapeutic modality embracing many disciplines with traditional and non-traditional practitioners. Hypnosis Therapy is client-centered with its focus on the discovery of the origin of a person’s symptoms and/or issues. And through the process of discovery, the unconscious mind goes to the original cause, which then gives the person and practitioner the opportunity to process the original thoughts and feelings surrounding the causal experience.

I use hypnosis (deep relaxation) to help your brain accept change. This is done upon request.

— Michelle Salzman, Counselor in Irving, TX

Hypnosis is a natural state of awareness in which the mind becomes more receptive to suggestion. In a hypnotherapy session, we will work to make sure the client is deeply relaxed as he or she or they enter that state, so that the experience is as calming and enjoyable as possible. Hypnotherapy is a method of using positive suggestions and imagery during the hypnotic state to help clients create positive changes in their lives to more forward more effectively.

— John Brown, Hypnotherapist in Los Angeles, CA

I've had a lot of clients who claimed they could not be hypnotized, but each one who came out of the session felt better and more relaxed. If nothing else, relaxation and time away from your problems can help you refocus and gain better understanding of how to overcome problems. Hypnotherapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses relaxation, extreme concentration (you're not even aware of it), and intense attention to achieve a heightened state of consciousness or mindfulness.

Hypnotherapy can be used to treat a variety of issues. I use it primarily to help clients find deeper states of wisdom and healing with emotional struggles. Depth Hypnosis looks and feels more like a deep state of relaxation and inner reflection. It combines elements of transpersonal psychology, Buddhist psychology, and shamanism to allow a client to access and activate their own inherent healing capacities.

We provide hypnosis. One of our specialty is hypnosis for smooth and peaceful birth.

— Dr. Taeko Uchino-DiCarlo, Psychologist in SAN DIEGO, CA

Depth hypnosis allows you to access these resources through guided imagery and deep relaxation. When your mind is calm, your consciousness can fade into something similar to a dream state. At this level of awareness, you can uncover and release an incredible amount of creativity, healing, and growth. It’s a gentle way of relieving unresolved pain and suffering. By opening yourself to vulnerability in a safe space, you can begin to feel more comfortable and secure moving through the world in a more real way. I’m a Certified Hypnotist in the methodology of Depth Hypnosis. Depth Hypnosis is a methodology developed by Isa Gucciardi, Ph.D.

— Jax Anderson, Licensed Professional Counselor in Appleton, WI

The hypnotherapy process takes place in a calm therapeutic environment, where I guide you into a relaxed state through things like deep breathing and body relaxing, and possibly a guided visualization. Then I have you think about experiences and situations in positive, healing ways that can help you change the way you think, feel and behave, as we work toward your therapeutic goals.
