What is hypnotherapy?

Brain PhotoAlso known as therapeutic hypnosis, hypnotherapy is a time-tested technique for improving a wide spectrum of conditions and alleviating symptoms. A trained hypnotherapist uses relaxation and focus exercises to help you enter a hypnotic state. This is a state of consciousness where you are exceptionally alert and, at the same time, very relaxed. In this state, you are more responsive to ideas and suggestions.

If you want to quit smoking, for example, or overcome a fear of public speaking, you are more receptive to initiating the changes you need to make when you’re in a hypnotic state. Think of it as planting a seed during your hypnotherapy session. Later, as you go about your day to day activities, this “idea seed” continues to grow, giving you the inner drive you need to reach your goal!

When you are in a hypnotic state, your body is relaxed and your mind is fully awake. This combination is ideal for cementing ideas such as, “I will lose weight,” or “I will free myself from the fear that’s holding me back.” Under hypnosis, you are extra receptive to the power of suggestion. Rest assured, you will never do anything that you don’t want to do. But you will be able to overcome mental blocks and emotional obstacles that are preventing you from living life to the fullest.

Benefits to You

Many of my clients notice that with hypnotherapy, issues they’ve dealt with for many years – in some cases, the majority of their lives – are finally resolved. Some of the benefits you may enjoy include:

  • Improved quality of life
  • Release from long-held emotional or mental blocks
  • Greater relaxation and peace of mind
  • Living to your full potential
  • Alleviation of physical symptoms
  • Higher self-esteem, confidence, self worth, and sense of purpose
  • Freedom from addictions and debilitating habits
  • The power to change your life for the better
  • Noticeable results in personal growth and self-improvement
  • Adopting a Can-Do attitude!


First and foremost, I believe in doing no harm. I operate under the premise that you are the healer, and answers are found within you. My role is to employ safe, effective hypnotherapy techniques designed to bring these answers to the surface. In essence, you are the physician, and I act as a facilitator.


I believe in a customized approach that treats each client according to his or her specific needs. That’s why during your first sessions, I’ll perform a thorough analysis to uncover relevant information about your health and life history. Once the targeted evaluation is complete, we can begin a method of therapy best suited for your particular case. I continuously evaluate as we go, making changes as needed to maximize the benefits of hypnotherapy for you.
