Hypnosis is right for you.

Who is able to be hypnotized?
If you ever drove into your laneway and doubted how you got there you may have experienced that autopilot trance-like state akin to hypnosis. Hypnosis uses fixation. repetition, and relaxation and is done in a theta state, which everyone passes through during the sleep process. Yes, clients experience a range of hypnosis in their sessions at the clinic in Saugeen Shores. Pioneer of hypnosis Milton Erickson persuaded the hypnotist to modify their metaphor, style, or approach to ensure that everybody can be hypnotized. At the initial screening session, all potential clients are assessed with a short hypnotic test.
How does hypnosis help?
Hypnosis slows the body and the mind down to a relaxed state. Many clients reach such a relaxed state where deductive reasoning is left behind and a more vivid or creative part of the brain is accessed. Positive suggestion, repetition, and relaxation are the keys to reaching for what you want. Young children function from theta brainwaves and this permits new learning. Theta waves authorize creative thought and increased motivation.
Let’s take the childhood book Goldilocks reference here. Hypnosis helps you come up with whatever version of ”Just right” for your future. Your future building exercise will allow you to create what you want, your ideal version of you. Something not suiting life, too hot or too cold, something too harsh or too soft? In hypnosis, a safe environment, the client builds what they want. Trying this new version on beforehand takes the fear out of change. No longer worrying about what The 3 Bears think. The weight-loss client seeing what they look like with the weight gone, hearing compliments, and feeling empowered. Other clients can see freedom from old habits, smoke, fears, or phobias. Now that the client has created this imagery they know what to work towards….similar to a vision board, but in 3D and with feelings. Using all of the senses along with the mind making it so real and doable the power comes from within.
Can someone stay stuck in hypnosis?
No, you can’t get trapped in nightly dreams either. Hypnosis is done in a dreamy theta state, a state we pass through each time we go to sleep and wake, where the client creates what is possible. While in your session or listening to your home audios you will be able to respond to an emergency if needed. Proposing change and realizing goals move you forward.

While the body relaxes, the mind becomes extra effective at taking in new tips. New ideas for losing weight, stopping smoking, and creating confidence to handle stress are then accepted. Voila!

What is NLP and how is it used within a hypnosis program?
NLP, or Neuro-Linguistic Programming, are techniques and tools taught to clients to shift out of unwanted memories, dull down the noise, and release nervousness. Allowing the person to create confidence, attain goals, reduce overreacting, and stay calm.
Just like when a boat sets down its anchor to stay in a calm place or enjoy nice scenery. I teach useful ways for clients to quickly anchor themselves in calm places and enjoy nice feelings and take advantage of resourceful moments. No longer succumbing and letting life happen to them.
