I have been trained in the use of hypnoanalysis and am a member of the American Association of Medical Hypnoanalysts. Hypnotherapy can be defined as guided hypnosis, or a trance-like state of focus and concentration achieved in order to tune their mind to gain inner resources and strength in order to overcome some mental obstacles. This hypnotic state is similar to being completely absorbed in a book, movie, music, or even one’s own thoughts or meditations and not hearing someone call your name a few times. In this state, clients can turn their attention completely inward to find and utilize the natural resources deep within themselves that can help them make changes or regain control in certain areas of their life.
I have used hypnotherapy as a supplement along with other forms of psychological treatment. Hypnotherapy can be used to treat anxiety, phobias, addictions as well as sexual dysfunction, undesirable spontaneous behaviors, and bad habits. It can be used to help improve sleep, learning disorders, communication, and relationship issues. Several sessions of hypnotherapy can aid in pain management and help resolve medical conditions such as digestive disorders.
