Clinical Hypnotherapy is one of several treatment modalities in which I am trained. According to The Cleveland Clinic, Clinical Hypnosis “uses the hypnotic state, which enables changes in perception and memory, a major increase in response to suggestion, and the potential for controlling many physiological functions that are usually involuntary. Hypnotherapy uses guided relaxation, intense concentration and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness that is sometimes called a trance.”
This work does not “brainwash” or otherwise control a client’s mind, nor is it about changing a client’s behavior without explicit and conscious approval from the client. Clients are aware during their entire session.
