Hypnotherapy; How is hypnotherapy different from traditional methods? The core difference from hypnotherapy and other methods is depth and speed. Using hypnotherapy techniques like relaxation, guided imagery, and the trance like state, therapist are able to access the subconscious more quickly than the traditional methods. Traditional methods may take weeks, months, or years to uncover the subconscious behind issues that are manifesting in clients. With hypnotherapy, these reasons can be found in as little as one session. The wellness Center. Needing 90 minutes to do this incredible work and results as a trained hypnotherapist from the Wellness Center, I look forward to providing you with an effective and efficient way to creating lasting changes including your trauma, sexual integrity issues, anxiety and depression.

Hypnosis and HypnotherapyWhat is hypnosis? Hypnosis is a treatment intervention that involves inducing the client into a relaxed, suggestible state and then offering post-hypnotic suggestions for relief of symptoms. It uses the hypnotic trance—the simple shifting back and forth between the conscious and subconscious mind, a natural process that occurs every day—in order to create this relaxed, suggestible state. What is the hypnotic trance? Many people think of hypnosis as inducing sleep. That’s actually not the case. Hypnosis (and hypnotherapy) induce the “trance state.” It is actually a natural state of mind that many of us encounter in everyday life on a regular basis. If you’ve ever been engrossed in a book, movie, or performance, then you have likely experienced the trance state. The only thing that distinguishes a naturally occurring trance state from the hypnotic trance state is that hypnotherapists induce the latter and are able to control the trance state to create understanding and healing. How is the hypnotic trance induced? Therapists use different types of hypnotic induction to get people into a trance state. The most well known and effective techniques to induce trance state is eye fixation, asking clients to stare at a spot on the ceiling or an object, or their thumb as it moves slowly backward and forward. We also teach several deepening techniques at The Wellness Institute. Most of these well established tools rely on creating deep relaxation. How is the hypnotic trance used in hypnotherapy? The hypnotic trance state creates a deep sense of relaxation and allows the client to let go. During this process, the hypnotherapist is able to uncover subconscious motivations, access repressed memories, perform regression therapy, and/or use the power of suggestion to “re-map” the mind’s responses to stimuli. What is hypnotherapy? Hypnotherapy is the practice of psychotherapy with a client who is in the hypnotic altered state of consciousness. Hypnotherapy is a powerful way to access the source of distress, like depression and anxiety, and for people to reconnect with dissociated emotions and disowned parts of themselves. Hypnotherapy helps therapists and client get closer to the source of a client’s issues by opening the doorway to their subconscious mind. What is Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy?
