What is Counseling Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy has been around for a very long time, used and induced in various ways. Used properly this mind-state can be a very deep, powerful tool to help you form the life you want. It can help you access resourceful parts of yourself that you might not believe exist. Hypnotherapy can expand your awareness which might allow understanding and forgiveness of yourself and others. In many ways it can help you move forward and through any challenge.
Many people are familiar with stage hypnotists and have a fear that the hypnotist exerts a control over another person. It can seem as though he is taking over their mind. I can reassure you that this is not what is happening. In all instances of a hypnotic state your inner awareness is always alert, alive and functioning. It will not allow ideas or commands to influence your mind or the inner core of your being unless it feels it is safe and O.K. to do so.
In Counseling Hypnotherapy the aim is therapeutic, not entertainment. The main goal is for you to have as many understandings, 'Aha!' moments, process memories, or whatever it is you need to do (within limits of course!) to move beyond where you are today into the tomorrow you are wanting to create. The really beautiful thing about this process is when you make changes in this way your conscious mind can stop fighting you.
Wouldn't it be nice if you could change a bad habit simply because you don't feel compelled to do it anymore? What would it be like when your career choice becomes clear for you, without hammering out a decision based on logic but then suffering that nagging feeling in the pit of your gut? The solutions to these and many other life situations lies.... within you.
But the problem is through years of ingrained training and faulty beliefs (believe me, we all have 'em!) your communication with your subconscious and your higher conscious has become strained. Distorted. Lost. While you are in a hypnotic trance it is much, much easier to connect with this inner part of yourself which knows you best. And this is when the magic begins. Without real effort on your part the mysteries become unravelled. Subtle changes happen. You approach things differently. Maybe not a lot at first, but each little beginning is a step in the right direction. And sometimes indeed the changes are rapid and life altering. Every person is different and every situation is different, requiring different amounts of sessions and time for things to work through.
With Counseling Hypnotherapy the sessions are not all about hypnosis. Hypnosis alone is only a pleasant relaxed state which may on its own provide good results. But with Counseling Hypnotherapy I will be working with you to help you move through something. There will be a chance for you to discuss your problem in question and I will work with you to overcome that in a way that will bring you peace of mind.
