A little about Hypnosis:
We all learn from repetition and from emotionally powerful experiences. Habits are thoughts, feelings or behaviors that are repeated and formed in the unconscious mind. But the unconscious mind doesn't always know the difference between good and bad habits. Sometimes these habitual ways of responding are merely coping skills that once served an important purpose, but now they have outlived their usefulness.
Most of our learning takes place in the waking state (we're conscious and aware, not asleep or in a dreamy trance-like state). But not all learning happens this way. We also learn from highly emotionally charged experiences, such as shock, trauma and grief/loss. These life events create powerful emotional states that are often very uncomfortable. The reality is that emotionally charged events are actually "altered states". Sometimes when people experience them, they feel as if they're not "in their right mind"; it feels surreal. And so, often the best way to work with them is by using therapeutic altered states (therapeutic trance) to neutralize their negativity, the same way baking soda neutralizes vinegar. The powerful psychotherapeutic tool of Hypnosis can help you do just that.
Brief Cognitive Hypnosis
This approach to problem resolution combines empirically-based cognitive therapy approaches with the powerful modality of Hypnosis. Many specific problem areas can be resolved within 3 - 5 sessions.
