Why Choose Hypnotherapy?
When you are ready to make changes, it works! World-renowned hypnosis expert and instructor Randall Churchill explains:
"To get powerful, lasting and fairly rapid results in therapy, it is essential that the methods employed reach and affect the subconscious mind. The subconscious houses the emotions, imagination, memory, habits, intuition, and is the pathway to the superconscious. It is the very core or essence of how we experience ourselves and the world.
Meaningful personal transformation, whether in or out of therapy, results from a shift in the subconscious mind."
What is Client-Centered Hypnotherapy (CCH)?
Hypnotherapy uses several levels of relaxed states to change perceptions, thoughts, and behavior. These relaxed states are completely natural and everyone flows through them throughout the day. Beneficial suggestions are given during the session, and emotional reactions and thought processes are explored. Each session is unique to the individual. You are conscious and can control where each session goes. We work to discover and resolve the issues that you would like to dive into. Positive traits and behaviors can also be enhanced, such as confidence and public speaking skills, among many others.
Clients seek sessions to reduce anxiety, manage stress, release childhood trauma, lose weight, remove creative blocks, dissolve phobias, let go of self-sabotaging behavior and procrastination, as well as explore creativity, dreams, spirituality, and more.
What is Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique (QHHT)?
Dolores Cannon’s QHHT uses the deepest level of relaxation, the somnambulistic. This state is reached twice per day, the moment before being consciously awake, and the moment just before falling asleep. As this method engages this powerful state, results can be dramatic, with those of CCH and much more.
During the session, clients are guided through 3 past life experiences. Whether you believe in reincarnation or view these as metaphors for situations in this life, this method allows us to go directly to the superconscious mind. It will provide clear answers to a list of questions prepared by the client. Questions can be anything that is most important to you, including life purpose, relationships, unexplained events, health issues, weight gain, phobias, spiritual development, and many others. Many clients come out of the session feeling that they have had a profound experience and finally received the answers they have been in search of for years.
This part of the mind also has the ability to explain the reason behind health issues experienced. While there are no guarantees, remarkable results have been achieved by Dolores and her QHHT Practitioners. More information can be found on Dolores' website.
Common Myths.. Debunked!
Some clients ask if they will be "asleep", lose control, or even, cluck like a chicken! Movies and TV have done a great job at perpetuating these unrealistic scenarios! During hypnosis sessions, you have complete control over your body and even where the session goes. It's often said that "all hypnosis is really self-hypnosis" which means that the participant must be fully willing to allow themselves to go into this relaxed state. Stage hypnotists' roles are quite different than most practitioners in the hypnotherapy world. Stage hypnotists select the 'entertainers' in the crowd to perform those funny acts. Hypnotherapists cannot make you do anything that is against your will or your morals. All clients in my CCH sessions retain all memory of the session and have full control at all times. Clients experiencing the QHHT session receive a recording as this type delves a little deeper and brings valuable insights to listen to again.
Will hypnotherapy really work for me?
Hypnotherapy will work with your willingness and readiness to make changes. It makes certain changes (like quitting smoking, adopting healthier habits, or boosting confidence) significantly easier, and provides clarity when you're unsure of your next steps or direction to take. To get the full benefits, it is important to follow-through with the treatment program, including the recommended timing of sessions and complete the easy homework. Each program is customized to your unique situation and starting point to ensure the best possible results!
What about the cost?
Hypnotherapy typically gets faster results* for a variety of issues as compared to other forms of therapy. I've had many clients tell me that the emotional release and closure they experience from hypnotherapy is greater than years of talk therapy they have been through. How does that compare to the cost of one year of psychotherapy or counseling? Factoring in only a nominal copay per visit, my services usually cost half of a typical out-of-pocket amount.
In most cases, "affordability" comes down to priorities. Do the expensive things, coffeehouse drinks, or dining out bring you lasting happiness-- or are they merely distractions? Many clients have a variety of ways to they can afford hypnotherapy services, if their emotional and behavioral wellbeing are a top priority.

*Your results may vary depending on your openness to change and willingness to complete the simple homework tasks. These results have been my experiences with my own clients dealing with a variety of concerns, and results from scientific literature comparing different methods in therapy and in smoking cessation.
