Hypnosis is an altered state of awareness and we are in hypnosis every time we daydream. It is both natural and powerful.
Your conscious mind deals with logic and reasoning. Your subconscious or unconscious mind is like a memory bank for everything that you have seen, done or thought.
Your subsonscious always wants to protect you, but is has no concept of space or time. It's job is to ensure that you respond exactly the way that you have programmed yourself to do over a period of time. That's why you continue to smoke, comfort eat or be anxious as you have programmed your mind to keep doing this over time. You can release anything that doesn't serve you anymore in your subconscious mind through hypnosis.
I guide and lead you into trance as you listen to my voice. This is done through various inductions. I use different hypnotic techniques to enable you to make the changes in a safe manner and then bring you back out.
You enter a relaxed state of awarness called trance. You are not asleep. Your conscious critial thinking mind is bypassed and communication with your subconscious mind is established. At the level of trance required your powerful subconscious mind is open to the power of suggestion, the power of change. You make these changes not me, it is your hypnosis. So smoking, overeating, anxieties and so on are reprogrammed into something positive.
It can be used to treat anxiety, phobias, sleep disorders, undesirable behaviors, increase confidence and preformance, stop smoking for good, weight loss, any irrational fear, phobias, migraine, PTSD, stuttering and anger management. The list is endless, basically something that you want to overcome that is physically and emotionally holding you back.
I can work contend free which means you don't need to explain your traumatic experience or about your anxiety. I just need to know that you want to release it.
This varies from person to person and issue to issue that is being worked on. Some require only one or two, others more. Each hypnosis session is benefical and one session can absolutely be enough.
