Hypnotherapy: What it is and who can benefit

Research has shown that the therapeutic use of hypnotic procedures can be very beneficial to help manage and treat a wide range of emotional, psychological, and physical conditions.

As a certified hypnotherapist (CHt), Past-life Regression Therapist (PLRt) and Life between Lives Regression Therapist (LBLt),  I use hypnotherapy to help clients heal from anxiety, fears and phobias, and to assist in the recovery from negative habits, such as tobacco use and overeating.  There are literally hundreds of ways hypnotherapy can help you live a more successful, joy-filled life.

Past-Life Regressions 

I also assist my clients through past-life regressions.  Have you ever felt powerfully connected to another person in ways you don't understand and that make no sense?  Are you involved in a very difficult or troubled relationship, perhaps with a friend, spouse, child, parent, or even your manager, that seems impossible to heal, change, or end?  A past-life regression can help explain these feelings by helping you recall other lifetimes where the two of you possibly played different roles, but created particular patterns that you are repeating in this life.  Once understood, these patterns can be ended and the relationship or relationships can be healed or changed.  The karmic cycle can be broken. 

Life Between Life Regressions  

Life between life regressions go further.  During these sessions I regress you to your most recent past life all the way through to your death scene, and then guide you to the heavenly place where we all go to review our most recent life, reunite with our soul group, and then plan our next life, the one we are living now.  This regression helps a person understand the purpose or purposes for this life, the qualities they have agreed to incorporate, the lessons they have agreed to learn, and the karma they have agreed to resolve. It also facilitates an understanding of why they chose certain other particular Souls to play important roles in their life.   

It is very important to understand what hypnotherapy isn't.  It is not a magic trick and is very different from stage hypnosis. There is no snapping of fingers that cause you to cluck like a chicken or believe you are a rabbit every time you hear a certain word or sound.   During hypnotherapy, you will be guided into a very relaxed but conscious state.  You will remember everything you have experienced.  No ONE CAN BE HYPNOTIZED TO DO SOMETHING THAT VIOLATES THEIR VALUES OR THAT THEY SIMPLY DO NOT WANT TO DO!

Flying isn't the only thing people are fearful of.  Public speaking, doctor visits, and academic testing are all very common phobias--and the list goes on. Whether it is an ongoing/long-standing fear, or an acute panic attack triggered by a specific event or situation, therapeutic hypnosis can assist with helping you overcome whatever fear or phobia that keeps you from living a relaxed, fulfilling life. Working together, I provide in-office sessions, as well as customized recordings for you to take home and use as often as you feel necessary.
Practical Uses

Hypnosis, in its most basic form, is a natural state of focused concentration. The human brain is our most powerful organ, yet the conscious mind (power, logic, reason) uses only 12% of its potential. The other 88% resides in our subconscious mind. It is this other 88% that therapeutic hypnosis taps into. Hypnosis is just one of many therapeutic tools that can be used to help clients overcome a variety of issues. I often use hypnosis in conjunction with talk-therapy, self-relaxation and breathing exercises, meditation, and other tools to assist clients with coping with and managing stress, and with the wide variety of anxiety-producing situations that we are faced with on a daily basis.

Present Life Regressions

Most of the time our current issues are easily identified, and can be dealt with through talk-therapy, insight, and behavioral changes. There are, however, times when the root of the issue lies somewhere in our childhood and may have been forgotten or repressed. This doesn't necessarily mean that a person was abused as a child, it simply means that there may have been patterns established when we were very young, and not being mature enough to recognize them, we incorporated those patterns into our adult lives

Through present life regressions, we can safely go back and recall where and how those patterns began. Sometimes they were survival instincts. Sometimes, they were a way to live up to a parent or caregiver's expectations. Sometimes it was a choice of "fight, flight or freeze," which are basic survival instincts. But what helped us get through childhood doesn't necessarily translate well into our adult lives and relationships.

By safely revisiting and recalling the repressed memories from childhood, we can often identify a major contributing factor or event that led us to establish patterns that are no longer serving us well as adults. Once identified, we can work on ways to incorporate our newly attained insight, and eliminate the life-long patterns, perspectives, belief-systems, and relationship-damaging behaviors that have prevented us from healthy, happy functioning.  

In cases where childhood trauma is recalled, a person can begin the process of healing from PTSD. 

About Reincarnation

A growing field of interest for many people is the concept of reincarnation. Reincarnation is based on the premise that we are eternal beings (Soul), and that as Soul, we reincarnate many times before our journey is complete. Each incarnation adds qualities we need to incorporate--for instance, unconditional love, compassion, reverence and respect for all beings, and non-judgment of others.  Each Soul chooses each lifetime, and the circumstances of that lifetime as a means of learning the lessons and incorporating the qualities we have established for ourselves. 

As a certified past life regression therapist, I have found that PLR is useful not only for dealing with traumatic or troubling memories, but also as a way of learning from positive experiences by accessing strengths, qualities, and skills gained from prior lifetimes. Understanding where we've been, and what our Soul's chosen purpose for this lifetime is, can help clarify our direction and give us confidence as we focus on our goals.
