How does it work?:

Transformational Hypnotherapy is an extremely powerful process which goes to the root of a problem and effectively removes it at the core, allowing the problem, and related behavior, to be released. Many of our issues are caused by a moment in time when our mind decided that by responding in a particular way a certain need would be met. This often occurs in childhood, though not always. As we go through time, this part of us continues to try and meet this need in the same way, even if now, it is actually getting in the way of what want.

Through hypnotherapy, we can go to the original cause of this problem and resolve it, releasing old habits which no longer serve us. This method is the main difference between transformational hypnotherapy and traditional hypnotherapy which relies solely on the power of suggestion. Suggestion-only based hypnotherapy creates a "powerful band-aid" for the problem, which seems to work short term, butboften doesn’t work in the long run. Through transformational hypnotherapy we can resolve the problem completely, instead of simply covering it up.

Through hypnotherapy, we can also provide alternative ways of meeting these needs, allowing a person to not only release the bad habit, but gain a positive one instead. By going into a deep relaxation we can quiet the conscious mind, which is our critical faculty, the part of us that says "no" to change, and engage instead with the subconscious mind, which is where we formed our original coping mechanism. It is with the subconscious mind that we are able to access the part of us which makes change happen at a deep and permanent level.

What to expect: 

I generally begin each session with an informal chat, where I will ask you many questions designed to make you think about the issue you'd like to tackle in different ways, and also for me to gain a greater understanding of your experience with this issue.  I will then lead you through a progressive relaxation, taking you into a relaxing state where we will begin the hypnotherapy process.

You, the client, are always completely in control and able to come out of this peaceful state at any time you wish.  We are always in constant communication and I encourage my clients to speak openly about how they are feeling throughout the session.

Most people leave a session feeling very calm, relaxed, and sometimes a bit light headed.  Often, people feel invigorated and ready for the life change they intend to make.  Others feel relaxed and sleepy.  Either way, people generally have a pleasant experience, and leave feeling change has taken place already.
