WHY HYPNOSIS ?
Designed as a medical tool to support clients with anxiety,
hypnosis has been proven to support and treat multitudes of symptoms and behaviors.
Hypnosis is thought to work by altering our state of consciousness in such a way that the analytical left-hand side of the brain is turned off, while the non-analytical right-hand side is made more alert. The conscious control of the mind is inhibited, and the subconscious mind awoken. Therefore, why not include creative exploration in hypnosis? Art and creativity, right-brain processes, help my clients create visual representations of blocks, symptoms, or fears that have sabotaged or prevented past traditional treatment from being effective.
I take traditional hypnosis one step further. By adding creative process, you begin to work with subconscious messages through color, picture and line. These modalities help create a visual cue to what a block may look like, or how your brain represents a myriad of emotions (anger, fear, shame, and so on). Your right brain “creative” process becomes activated. And with the support of your more powerful subconscious mind, we begin to build a bridge to healing through both creativity and unconscious reprogramming. Not only is this effective, it’s enjoyable. Something not often experienced in traditional cognitive behavioral modalities in therapy.
