Because of the way hypnosis is portrayed on television and movies, there is a common misconception that hypnosis only works on the "weak minded" or that hypnotist must have some sort of "power" over the mind. However, science has since started catching up to what hypnotist have known for years.

The Stanford School of Medicince used brain imaging to see the effects of hypnosis on the mind and found that hypnosis SIMULTANIOUSLY works three different parts of our brain.

  • Firstly, the dorsal anterior cingulate, which helps in deciding what to worry about and what to ignore.
  • Next, the part of the brain that seperates the thoughts in our head from the feelings in our bodies, so when you are thinking about something, you can better control how the body respond to those thoughts.
  •  The third region involves self-awareness and is what really helps people shake up the way they approach and react to things. 

If you've ever found yourself:

  • lost in a really good movie...
  • staring at the numbers as you ride an elevator...
  • doing somehing on "automatic"
  • or being in the zone

THAT'S HYPNOSIS! And combined with modern communication technology hypnotists have zeroed in on how to facilitate this process to yield extraordinary results. When understood in this way, it's easy to see why hypnosis is more effecive than any other method.



F.A.Q.

  • What is hypnosis?
    The experience of a hypnotic trance is not so unusual or  strange. To the contrary, it feels vaguely familiar to countless other  moments in your life where you were absorbed in a zone, lost in thought, or simply meditating.  Mediation is actually the closest you can come to a state of trance without being  guided there, as you would experience in hypnosis. I often refer to it  as taking my clients on a journey, a metaphorical trip in your mind or imagination. 

 

  • Will I tell my secrets in hypnosis?
  •  Hypnosis CANNOT be used to find the truth, or make a person tell the truth. Hypnosis is NOT a truth serum. First of all, the subject experiencing hypnosis retains enough awareness and control to NOT say anything that he doesn’t want to make known, or isn’t ready to make known. 


  • Who can experience hypnosis?
  • Anyone who can pay attention and follow instructions can experience hypnosis if they want to. People will vary however, as to the experience of hypnosis. 


  • Can I get suck in hypnosis?
  • Not even a little bit. In some cases our work is done before you even close your eyes so all thats left is attaching resources to your specific change ensuring that is yours for good!


  • Why hypnosis over the alternatives?

Aside from nasty side effects from pills and other meds, hypnosis is an internal process that explores the nature of your issue in a safe, thorough and non-intrusive way. This allows us to creates change in your life organically, from within, where you experience the world FIRST. Only then will everything fall into place naturally as you explore the world through a new "lens". 


  • What made you choose a carreer helping people in this way?

I joined the military straight out of high school and after four years, I started my transition back to civilian life. This was before PTSD was really "a thing" so help was scarce. I began studying what they did to us in training in an effort to "undo" or "reverse" it for myself and others. When I came across hypnosis, something I had first learned before the military, I was intrigued that something I messed around with as achild was being presented as a viable solution to real issues. And issues I saw my friends and family living with so I studied extensively for years, finding the skills and techniques to facilitate the kind of change that would only help them lead better lives and get over their "hump".

What I found was so much more.

I've since worked with numerous veterans helping smooth the transition from active duty, business executives who want to get an edge in their field, and people looking to accomplish their goal if they could just get ovet that "hump".

One of things that makes my approach to change work so unique is that as a Neurolinguist, I can identify the "linguistics to your neurology" (NLP) to help you navigate your mind for a more organic solution instead of walking you through a set of excerises until one of them sticks.
