Hypnotherapy is a natural process of tapping into the power of your own mind to achieve your self-improvement goals. While many people think of hypnotherapy only for use with habits such as stop smoking or losing weight, the power of the mind has no limits for personal application.
As a Hypnotherapist, I work with an almost endless array of personal achievement goals. In some cases a medical referral may be required for issues of pain management and other medical related issues. If you are working with another counseling professional already or have goals beyond personal self-improvement, then I may ask for a referral from the appropriate professional.
It would be nearly impossible to list every possible application for hypnotherapy. The list below offers you a glimpse of possible applications of hypnotherapy.

WHAT IS HYPNOSIS?
Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state that we all enter in and out of all day long. It happens when we watch TV, listen to music, drive, daydream, and every time we fall asleep and wake up. It’s a state of learning, where information is more easily accepted by your subconscious mind. Hypnotherapy harnesses this natural state to direct the positive messages to your subconscious that will allow you to begin to make the changes you want to see in your life.
HOMEOSTASIS & NEUROPLASTICITY
There are two key concepts for understanding why hypnosis is such an important tool for creating life changes.
Homeostasis: Homeostasis is our innate unconscious drive to “stay the same”, that is to say resist all changes at a subconscious level. While we may desire a change in our feelings, reactions or habits, at a deeper level our subconscious defense mechanisms seek to preserve the status quo, ie… resist all efforts to change. So while talking, planning, discussion and rational understanding of behavior are all important concepts, they do not address our subconscious need to sabotage our success and/or efforts to change.
Neuroplasticity: On a personal, spiritual and behavioral level, neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to change throughout an individual’s life. Our ability to change beliefs, emotional responses and behavioral habits is dependent on the flexibility of or our mind.
