You might be surprised!
In our hectic daily routines, we often neglect to take care of ourselves, leading to frustration, burnout, anxiety, anger, and depression. By optimizing awareness of the mind-body connection, we can reduce daily stress and increase wellbeing. Through hypnosis you can learn new coping mechanisms for dealing with stress, retraining body and mind to respond in more appropriate and less harmful ways, until these become second nature.
We all go into altered states every day: daydreaming, highway hypnosis, or becoming deeply absorbed in a book, movie, or creative activity. Hypnosis is just another altered state, a state of quiet focused awareness where you become more suggestible.
Hypnosis can be used for a variety of issues and works best if you are ready to make changes. It is particularly effective for resolving inner conflict, e.g. "part of me wants to quit smoking but part of me really enjoys it." Stress underlies many physiological symptoms and you may feel stuck in an endless cycle. Hypnosis can help you break out of that self-defeating loop and allows you to create new patterns of response to cope with stressful situations.
When you experience hypnosis you learn to harness your natural abilities to relax and focus. Like any skill, regular practice will help you reap more benefits. You won't drop three dress sizes the first time you are hypnotized, and you may not quit smoking after just one session (although some people do!) but with a little patience and perspective you will reach your goals.
