Hypnotherapy is a method of therapy that uses hypnosis to resolve any emotional and/or psychological issue. Hypnotherapy employs the hypnotherapeutic trance, allowing you to move past your conscious mind to access the root causes of your particular issue.
The trance uncovers otherwise “hidden” or subconscious information – such as old beliefs and memories – and lets them flow naturally to the conscious mind. You’ll discover the underlying causes of the unwanted behavior, habit or symptom, making it easier to understand and successfully resolve your issue. In Deep Insight Hypnosis (DIH), we trace your current life issue to its source through inner child work, prenatal regressions, and past life regressions.
Since the underlying problem has not been addressed, it will often come out in different ways. For example, if you are a smoker and you use Suggestion Hypnosis to stop smoking, you might find yourself drinking more alcohol because the underlying reason for smoking has not yet been addressed. Most clients find that Deep Insight Hypnosis has long lasting and profound effects that result from deep change.
My supervisors and teachers said I was doing a great job, and it seemed that my clients would be content coming to see me weekly forever. However, I don’t believe that you should be in therapy forever! I believe that life-long therapy is a failure of the therapy, not the client. I am an advocate for empowerment — people need to be able live as a sole agent, without the constant guidance of a therapist.
People are happier and healthier when they feel empowered, and Deep Insight Hypnosis is the most effective, fastest way that I have found to achieve this goal. I feel good that my current clients are expending less time, energy and money on their healing and they are seeing greater benefits than I was able to provide through traditional talk therapy.
In the therapeutic setting it becomes possible to create a safe environment that is separate from every day life. In the therapy, the client can then talk about and express what is meaningful and significant in his or her life. An important part of this process is the relationship with the therapist. As the client comes to trust the therapist, not only do they find they can talk about and express their feelings, but they also come to experience a ‘good’ relationship that is both accepting and containing. What is healing in this process is that what was denied and yet still troubles the person, is expressed, and can then be worked through and understood. But perhaps what is more important is that the process of therapy takes place over time, and allows new meanings and new possibilities to emerge.
DIH is committed to the client’s best interest, which means having the client in control at all times. DIH is geared towards healing and enhancing someone’s life, whereas stage hypnotism is a means to an end, where the end is entertainment; there is little or no concern for the client’s well-being.
The therapist has a philosophy and a way of working that fits with your beliefs. If you like what I have to say, call me to schedule an appointment.
You and the therapist have a good rapport. Rapport means that you actually like the therapist as a person, not just as a professional. You should feel comfortable with her/him, and be able to comfortably share the deeper parts of yourself.
Meeting a therapist in person is the best way to figure out #2.
