What is Hypnosis? Hypnosis is a highly suggestible state of mind created during times of stress. We all slip in and out of hypnosis. It’s a natural state of mind. What is Clinical Hypnosis? Clinical hypnosis utilizes this natural state of mind as a way of bringing about positive life changes in a safe, controlled environment. What’s the difference between a Hypnotist and Hypnotherapist? The way hypnosis is used determines what you call a person practicing hypnosis. In general, a hypnotist entertains, while a Hypnotherapist works with clients to change behavior, resolve issues and provide a safe environment conducive to facing life’s challenges. Can I Be Hypnotized? Everyone can be hypnotized, as long as you are a willing participant. No one can be forced into hypnosis or made to do things that conflict with their morals, values, or spiritual beliefs. Will I Be Asleep? No. While your body is very relaxed, your mind is aware, so you can hear, talk and move. How Does Hypnotherapy Work? The human mind has two parts. The Conscious mind: 1% to 12% of the mind handles logic, reason and willpower. The Subconscious mind: 88 to 99% of the mind handles our automatic responses (breathing, etc.), habits and behavior. It has no logic or reason, so it cannot think or analyze. Hypnotherapy works directly with the subconscious mind. Once your subconscious learns the desired behavior, the most powerful part of your mind is working with you! What can I expect when I come for my first session? The first time you come for therapy, you will be asked to fill out a few personal information profiles to assist the therapist in understanding how you process information. Once you go into session, the therapist will provide a detailed explanation of hypnosis and how it works. Once you understand the process and are comfortable with it, the therapist will begin the hypnotherapy session. The first session usually runs between 2-3 hours. Is hypnotherapy considered counseling or psychology? No. Hypnotherapy is only concerned with changing the desired behavior. We do not diagnose, treat or cure. We do work in conjunction with doctors, psychiatrists, psychologist, counselors and social workers. At Empowerment Strategies Hypnotherapy: We use a specialized form of hypnosis based on the scientific research of Dr. John Kappas and Dr Milton Erikson. We work with each individual person in a way that best fits their style of learning, so our clients boast a success rate high above the national...
Bad habits are learned behaviors that are ingrained in the subconscious. While the conscious mind, using logic and reason, struggles to steer us in the direction we want to go, it is battling against a powerful hidden force, the subconscious mind. That is why, in stressful times, no matter how determined you may have felt to change a behavior, or handle something in a more positive way, we often revert back to our old habits, which are still programmed into the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind has no logic or reason. The subconscious mind believes a learned behavior is a positive thing, no matter how bad for us the habit may be. A habit such as smoking is a learned behavior that the subconscious mind believes is good for you. That behavior is so ingrained in the subconscious that while the conscious mind may try to stop it, the subconscious mind won’t allow it. We say we are weak, or lack will power, lazy or set in our ways. What you are experiencing when you revert back to learned behaviors is the power of your subconscious mind. Anyone who has ever tried to change a behavior has experienced the power of their subconscious mind. HOW CAN HYPNOTHERAPY HELP YOU? Smoking Weight Loss Insomnia Stress Relationships Anxiety Self-Control Fears Motivation Depression Sports Improvement Hypnosis changes the nature of the struggle. Instead of fighting against ourselves, hypnotherapy changes the subconscious programming in a positive way, so that you are in complete harmony with your goals. Everything you think, feel or do originates in your own mind. Hypnotherapy approaches problems where it counts, in the subconscious mind, and puts your conscious and subconscious on the same team. Hypnotherapy is an effective, natural way to empower you to overcome obstacles in you life. Most personal problems begin as learned behavior, whether it’s smoking, stress, anxiety, fears and phobias, or other behaviors. Hypnotherapy works directly with the subconscious mind, which controls the vast majority of your behaviors. The human brain is a powerful organ. Hypnosis harnesses that power in a positive, natural way. CONTACT INFORMATION Darice V.
