In light of the current CDC recommendations to minimize risk of exposure to and spread of the COVID-19 virus, I am suspending in-person hypnotherapy sessions with me in my office. However, phone and Skype consultations ARE and WILL REMAIN available!
The majority of conscious behavior is rooted in the subconscious area of the mind. This area, which constitutes at least 88 percent of the mind and is where the "scripts" for all behaviors — wanted and unwanted — reside. (In comparison, the conscious area comprises only 12 percent of the mind.) Whenever you want to change or stop a behavior, you must make this change in the subconscious mind.
Hypnotherapy is an effective and direct way to help you access this area of your mind to make the desired change(s). Hypnosis works on the principal of ‘suggestibility,’ but you cannot be made to say or do anything that conflicts with your personal ethics and/or desires while you are in that state. Furthermore, it is a natural, drug-free modality which helps many people to overcome the fears/anxieties and subconscious "blocks" that have been holding them back so they can achieve their various self-improvement goals.
It is interesting to note that the Department of Veterans’ Affairs recognizes hypnotherapy as an effective treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in returning veterans. In addition, celebrities and other public figures have used hypnosis to quit smoking, lose weight, increase self-confidence and even reduce symptoms of extreme morning sickness. I invite you to experience the effectiveness of hypnotherapy to help you accomplish your self-improvement goals, as well!
