Applications of Hypnotherapy
Hypnotherapy is an extremely versatile tool which specializes in dealing with problems that are ultimately rooted in the subconscious. Problems with memory, bad habits, harmful behaviors, self-improvement are all areas hypnosis is excellent at improving including:
Stress is becoming more and more of a concern in our lives and comes in different forms – exam anxiety, public speaking anxiety, performance anxiety… If you’ve ever talked to someone who has experienced hypnotism, they will tell you how relaxing it is. But more than just relaxing, we’ll find the cause of stress and create the resources within you to deal with it more effectively.
One of the most common uses for hypnosis is losing weight. Having trouble shedding pounds? Craving the wrong foods? No motivation to get any exercise? Not exercising or sleeping enough? Let me help you get back on track by learning and accepting healthy new behaviors designed just for you and where you’re at in your weight loss journey to help you go to the next level.
Hypnosis has a very high success rate in smoking cessation. Have you been trying to “will” your way to cessation? A lot of clients have when they use the words “I’ve tried everything!” when they call me. But, they haven’t tried hypnosis and after a few sessions are glad they did. If you’re ready to stop now, then you can using hypnosis.
Fears and Phobias
Fears of everything from flying to spiders to just going outside are excellent examples of your subconscious taking an unhealthy fear and running with it. Do you want to know where your fears came from? Do you want to get rid of them for good?
Hypnosis may not be sleep, but it’s very effective and helping you get better at it. Sleep disorders can keep you from getting a good night’s sleep for a variety of reasons. Let’s find the obstacle to your sleep and remove it, and train your brain to go to sleep more effectively.
What would life be like if I could magically take away your pain today? Dealing with discomfort is one of the classic uses for hypnosis in medicine. Analgesia and anesthesia have a history in hypnosis dating back centuries, everything from surgery without chemical anesthesia to pain-free childbirth. Pain has an important role in telling us when something is wrong, but chronic pain can be a life-long debilitation and medication can be expensive, and rarely without side-effects.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Following World War I, hypnosis became popular in treating PTSD. From a hypnosis point of view, PTSD is a form of programming, allowed to impact your subconscious in a time of trauma, that triggers some form of stress after the fact. If we could get rid of that trigger, those unresolved negative associations, and thus remove the stress, what impact would that have on your life?
Compulsive, Unwanted Habits
The classic fear of hypnosis is that the hypnotist will make you do something you don’t want to do. The irony is many people already do this all the time and your hypnotist can help you NOT do it. Have a habit you just can’t control? Wouldn’t it be nice to have complete control over it? We all know what kind of track record New Year’s Resolutions have… some habits can be difficult to break. Well, difficult to break with conscious effort…
Fibromyalgia is one of those funny syndromes that exists on a continuum: not everyone experiences the same symptoms or the same causes. Sometimes it can be difficult to even diagnose. But the potential common causes and symptoms read like this web page: pain, insomnia, stress, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, there’s very little symptoms in fibromyalgia that hypnosis doesn’t help treat.
Addictions are habits, behaviours or patterns embedded deep into your subconscious which is why they are so hard to stop. These include smoking, drinking, drugs, eating, gambling, picking your nose, anything that you can’t seem to control no matter how hard you try. From a simple habit requiring one or two sessions to a major anti-addiction program supplemented by hypnotherapy to deal with that embedded behavior, hypnosis can help you get victory over it.
