What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a natural state of mind that you have already experienced thousands of times in your life – even unintentionally.  While in the state of hypnosis, it is possible to make desired changes on a subconscious level.

Does Hypnosis REALLY Work?

Yes!  I have personally helped hundreds of people make profound changes to their lives.  Some of my favorite examples have included: a pilot-in-training who developed a sudden fear of flying, who has since overcome the fear, earned the pilot’s license and is studying to be able to fly larger planes; a heroin addict who had been in and out of recovery, and with the help of hypnosis has been able to kick the habit; a severe germophobe unable to hug her children, play outdoors with them, allow them to have a dog or to be intimate with her husband, who has since been able to do ALL of these things and more; a competitive bowler who allows his analytical mind to think too much and get in the way of being in the zone who has since bowled his highest score in a tournament in several years.  As you can see, hypnosis is useful for a wide variety of things

What Does Hypnosis Feel Like?

Think of driving a familiar route (say, from work to home every day), and you arrive safely in your driveway with no conscious memory of taking that last turn – that’s a sort of “road trance” that is very similar to the hypnotic state.

Can Anybody be Hypnotized?

Will I Quack Like a Duck or Bark Like a Dog?

The “tricks” often seen in a hypnotic stage show are entertaining, and they are, in fact, happening in a real hypnotic state.  The people selected to participate in these shows have been chosen because the hypnotist feels they will be receptive to the suggestions he or she will be making, and on some level, they have a willingness to act that way.  At no point in a therapeutic setting will you be asked to “perform” in this manner.

Can I Get “Stuck” in Hypnosis?

Like any other natural state of mind, the hypnotic state is temporary.  If a suggestion is given that you are unable or unwilling to accept, you will naturally emerge yourself from the state of hypnosis.  While the changes made in the hypnotic state can be permanent, the hypnotic state itself is not.

Is Hypnosis Safe?

Hypnosis is perfectly safe.  The use of hypnosis for anesthesia has been accepted by the American Medical Association since 1958, and Pope Pius XII gave his approval of hypnosis in 1956.  The U.S. Government defines hypnosis as having two parts: 1) the bypass of the critical factor, and 2) the establishment of acceptable selective thinking.

What Does THAT Mean?

All that means is that with hypnosis we can get rid of limiting beliefs in order to implement the changes we want to make.
