What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness which allows the mind to be receptive to learning, change, and creativity. The trance state can allow us to transcend the limitations of old thought patterns and behaviors, working with the subconscious mind and the imagination to create new neural pathways and possibilities. Hypnosis also teaches you to use the power of your own mind to create positive change.
I offer hypnosis for those looking for short-term, solution-focused approaches to create change in patterns of thought and behavior, as well as for those looking to use hypnosis for self-exploration and personal growth.
I use hypnotherapy in my practice as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate (LCSWA) in the state of North Carolina - both as a short-term, solution focused treatment and as a tool in the context of longer-term therapeutic work. As a consulting hypnotist, I also offer hypnosis services to clients remotely as an adjunct or stand-alone service.
Some of the ways hypnosis can help:
Training the mind & body for relaxation
Changing habits of thought and behavior
Enhancing self-esteem and self-worth
Activating creativity & manifestation
Accessing motivation & inner resources
Facilitating inner child work & parts integration
Generating personal growth & self awareness
Supporting those with health challenges & medical issues through the mind-body connection
“The unconscious mind is decidedly simple, unaffected, straightforward and honest. It hasn’t got all of this facade, this veneer of what we call adult culture. It’s rather simple, rather childish. It is direct and free.” ~Milton Erikson
How It Works
Hypnosis is a versatile method that can be used to address any number of goals for personal growth and change. It can also help you to connect with different aspects self, to gain a deeper understanding of your inner world, and to access the inner resources that are already within you to help you find creative solutions and new perspectives in your life situation.
I always begin with thorough intake interview where we work together to understand and uncover the patterns that you would like to address and to create clear intentions and goals for our work together. From there we may proceed with an individually scripted session to re-pattern and reinforce your intentions for change. We may also proceed with non-directive hypnosis in which we explore your inner world to gain deeper insight, understanding and connect with your own inner wisdom about an area of focus. I work with each client individually to determine the best course of action based on your goals and circumstances.
Sessions may be in-person in Wilmington, NC, or virtual on Zoom.
