"Hypnosis is the state of highly focused consciousness. Hypnotherapy is the therapeutic practice of hypnosis for the purpose of effecting positive behavioral or attitudinal change."

Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic technique that uses the hypnotic state to facilitate psychological and emotional changes in the individual. Although hypnosis has sometimes been the subject of controversy and skepticism, extensive research has demonstrated its effectiveness in a variety of clinical conditions. Here we mention some ways in which hypnotherapy can be useful in psychological treatments:


1. **Deep Relaxation**: Hypnotherapy can help induce a state of deep relaxation, which can be helpful for people experiencing high levels of stress, anxiety or tension.


2. **Access to Memories and Emotions**: Hypnosis can help people access repressed memories or blocked emotions.


3. **Pain Management**: Hypnotherapy has been shown to be effective in the management of chronic pain and in certain medical procedures, by helping people reduce their perception of pain.


4. **Habits and Addictions**: Many people seek hypnotherapy to quit smoking, control food consumption, or overcome other addictions.


5. **Sleep Disorders**: Hypnotherapy can be an effective tool to treat insomnia and other sleep disorders.


6. **Improved Self-Esteem and Confidence**: By addressing limiting beliefs or past traumas, hypnotherapy can help improve a person's self-esteem and confidence.


7. **Phobias and Fears**: Hypnotherapy can be useful to treat various phobias, such as fear of flying, animals, closed places, among others.


8. **Personal Development**: Some people use hypnotherapy as a personal development tool, to improve skills, overcome mental barriers or achieve specific goals.


9. **Trauma Treatment**: Hypnotherapy is also used to help people process and overcome past traumas.


10. **Psychosomatic Symptoms**: Some physical symptoms have a psychological or emotional origin. Hypnotherapy can help address and treat these symptoms by getting to the emotional or psychological root of the problem.


It is important to note that the effectiveness of hypnotherapy can vary depending on the individual. It is essential that people interested in hypnotherapy seek out a professional who is trained and experienced in the field.

Sometimes traveling is impossible or not very convenient, especially for those in hospitals or nursing homes. In these cases, you can schedule a session for yourself or a loved one and I'll take care of the trip.

Choose this option if you or a loved one cannot travel to see me. I often visit clients in nursing homes and hospitals to help them in any way I can. Simply make an appointment and write me a note including your details such as your name, phone number, email and address. A fee for travel up to 30 miles from our location is included.

"Hypnosis can be used to help you gain control over undesired behaviors or to help you cope better with anxiety or pain. Hypnosis that's conducted by a trained therapist or health care professional is considered a safe, complementary and alternative medical treatment."
