What Is Hypnosis?

Hypnotherapy is a powerful and effective method of changing the way you perceive the world. Whether you are wanting to change behavior, enhance performance, conquer fears or gain confidence, hypnosis is a wonderful and often short-term way to quickly affect the change you desire.

Hypnosis is a natural, altered state of consciousness, similar to deep relaxation, or daydreaming. Many of us enter this natural mind state spontaneously throughout our day. Have you ever been lost in thought while driving home and missed your turn or lost track of time while reading, watching a movie?  Or doing an activity you love? In these moments you are experiencing a light hypnotic trance, similar to the deeply relaxed place you go to every night right before falling asleep. It is as a pleasant state of deep relaxation, where external stimuli are greatly diminished. In this relaxed state you can harness more fully your own positive internal resources to attain your goals.

Hypnotherapy can be used in combination with psychotherapy or as a primary mode of treatment. Therapeutic hypnosis is used to address anxiety, reshape experiences, enhance performance and ultimately change behavior.
