In hypnosis we use a naturally occurring trance state to access the subconscious mind to create the desired change.  Hypnosis is one of the most powerful and effective tools used with children, teenagers and adults.

When one is in a hypnotic state, the mind has entered a state of focused relaxation.  A person often experiences a sensation of calmness and their senses are heightened.  The subconscious mind is easily and effectively accessed using imagination and visualization. During Hypnosis the client's subconscious mind is open to the ideas that the client collaboratively develops with the therapist, so that the client's goals are more easily achieved. 

Understanding Your Mind
The mind's operations may be divided into two processes: subconscious and conscious.

The conscious mind (the thinking mind) is responsible for reasoning and interpreting experiences and events in order to give meaning to events and experiences. It provides the awareness of thinking, feeling and action. The conscious mind is responsible for about 20% of our daily actions. Conscious thinking occurs when you are learning to read or drive a car: you are focusing on learning the necessary skills and consciously accessing the requisite knowledge.

The subconscious mind is responsible for automatic processes (physical, mental and spiritual). It is the part of the mind that stores memory (using all the senses), organizes and processes experiences, and uses imagination and visualization. The subconscious mind is responsible for most of our day-to-day functions (about 80% of what we do)! 

Subconscious thinking occurs when you have mastered the skill (such as driving a car, walking, riding a bicycle) and you no longer need to 'think' about how to do it…you are able to do it automatically.

Hypnosis can help adults address a variety of issues including the following:


Stress Management

Sleep Disturbances

Self Esteem & Confidence

Fears & Phobias

Fertility challenges

Public Speaking


Common Myths
Let me clear up some common myths that people have about hypnosis:

  • You cannot be hypnotized unless you are a willing participant. 
  • At no time does the client surrender their will to the Hypnotist.  Hypnosis is a subjective experience.  While in a hypnotic state, the client is always conscious and aware of the process.  This awareness allows the client to make their own decisions at all times.  The Hypnotist simply guides the client during the process. 
  • No secrets can be coaxed out of someone in hypnosis unless they want to share the information.  In fact, during hypnosis, clients are usually silent, enjoying the relaxation that comes with hypnosis. 
  • Some people are afraid that once hypnotized, they will never come out of it.  This is not true.  In hypnosis, the client actually induces the hypnotic trance themselves and as such, the client is able to revive themselves when necessary. 
  • Having the ability to be hypnotized does not mean that a person is weak minded or gullible.  In fact, the opposite is true:  hypnosis requires the ability to concentrate and focus and to actively participate in the process.
