stress reduction (#1 issue for many people)
sleep issues - poor sleep or nightmares
persistent sadness & anxiety
personal issues tailored for each client
(See the SPECIALIZED SERVICES page for regression and group session info)
Many go through life feeling powerless. Your mind is actually powerFULL. I will help you find and maximize that knowledge through hypnosis. (You will also learn SELF-HYPNOSIS so you can be empowered beyond the office, too.)
NOTE - Even though hypnosis is never intended to replace medical, psychological or psychiatric care, studies have shown it is a great complementary tool.
HOW IT WORKS - All hypnosis is SELF-hypnosis, meaning that YOU are in control.
You cannot be controlled by a hypnotist.
You cannot be hypnotized unless you really want it to happen.
You are NOT asleep in hypnosis - that is a myth.
Think of hypnosis as a deeply relaxed and peaceful state of body and mind. (Doesn't THAT sound nice?!) A hypnotist is a guide to help you reach that happy, peaceful, easy feeling. When your body becomes deeply relaxed, then your conscious mind can be happily at ease and deeply relaxed, too.
Within this state of deep, total relaxation, a hypnotist can help you increase focus and receptivity. (I know, sounds pretty wonderful, right?) Your subconscious mind is then able to receive powerful suggestions from the hypnotist that are goal-oriented, positive, supportive and life-affirming.
The hypnotist helps YOU help YOURSELF by showing your mind, body and spirit a better way to align and work together to create the positive changes that you really want in your life. In the end, YOU are the one who will decide to accept those suggestions and make those changes. The hypnotist is your loving and friendly guide to show you how.
HOW IT HELPS - Have you ever gone to a rodeo? Have you ever seen a cowboy ride a bucking bronco? Often, the raging horse throws the cowboy off in just a few seconds. YOUR MIND is just like that bucking bronco.
It can be hard to calm down the conscious mind and get it to cooperate with goals and dreams, even when you really do want to make changes. Will power might not be enough. Along with that, many people have long-ingrained thought patterns from childhood, and habits developed in adulthood that are automatic and destructive. (Think about low self-esteem, lack of confidence, smoking, overeating, angry outbursts, constant worry, drugs and alcohol.) Change can be hard, because it often takes more than willpower. Hypnosis can help!
Through hypnosis, I partner with you to help your body and mind enter total, deep relaxation. That bucking bronco is now calm and peaceful as a little newborn pony. Then I enlist the cooperation of your subconscious mind and give it suggestions for better ways to cope and deal with life. It's a holistic way to retrain your mind, body and spirit. And when you finish sessions with me, you will know how to easily use SELF-HYPNOSIS every day to continue your personal healing journey! It is all about empowerment and learning how to retrain your mind to create the changes that you really want.
(Because you really can!)
What exactly is TRANSPERSONAL SPIRITUAL COUNSELING?
"Transpersonal" means beyond the ego or personality. Transpersonal Counseling is a personalized, holistic, client-centered approach that helps people find, develop and use their own deep inner wisdom and personal resources. Traditional psychological or psychiatric counseling focuses on the brain and behavior, and then on chemicals & pharmaceuticals as tools for personal change. Transpersonal Counseling instead focuses 100% on ways to align spirit, body and mind to facilitate a deepening sense of wholeness and expanded possibilities.
A Transpersonal Counselor has integration and healing as the goal. It is a collaborative style of therapy where the counselor is not above the client or superior in any way; they instead will be a guide, a friend, a light in the darkness that helps clear and clarify the way. They use a variety of tools to assist in awakening each client’s full potential and to experience healing through mystical, spiritual, religious and even altered states of consciousness.
This type of approach is often seen as a short-term process that can be a platform for clients to discuss problems for personal clarity, but it can also be a long-term process for long-held or long-experienced challenges. Transpersonal Counseling can help with making life-changing decisions; identity crisis; major life transitions; relationship troubles; feelings of being stuck or uncertain; chronic or acute fear, depression or anxiety; feeling overwhelmed or stressed out; along with helping with debilitating personal habits that cause self-sabotage. It successfully helps expand a client’s framework for understanding the vast array of human experiences, by using complementary and alternative therapies.
Sessions are tailored for each client utilizing a variety of modalities which could include: hypnosis; meditation training (mantra, guided and/or visualizations); shadow work; transforming personality; trauma healing/forgiveness; connecting with divine energies; first causes/core issues discovery; grounding/Earthing; chakra alignment; rebirthing; dream work – lucid dreaming and/or healing from nightmares; psychic development; brain hemisphere sync; PNI - psychoneuroimmunology; Reiki and other types of energy healing work; ACIM; plus many other modalities.
