It's easy to find ourselves in a state of exhaustion or lacking extra energy, especially with work and families and the demands of everyday life.

Anxiety + Stress

I'm not pretty/handsome enough. I don't have enough friends. I'm not thin enough. I'm not smart enough. I don't fit in.

Changing our thoughts about the way we feel about ourselves ensures we are projecting what we want to reflect to others.

Addictions can come in the form of alcohol, drugs, gambling, pornography, shopping, eating and anything else you have a more than strong desire for.

Fears + Phobias
We all have them- public speaking, heights, snakes, the dark, storms, being alone... fears and phobias can hold us back from being our best self. Here's the thing, it's all in your head, literally. When we are able to view things from a different perspective, we find that the things we once feared now hold no tangible value or significance in our lives any longer.

What Is Hypnotherapy + How Does It Work?
Clinical hypnotherapy is a healing modality that changes or heightens your state of awareness and increased relaxation that allows for focus and concentration on a subconscious level. A certified hypnotherapist will guide you into a deeper state of relaxation (aka the daydream state) using repetitive, positive verbal commands + suggestions as well as mental images to create an inner experience through emotion and cognition. Your subconscious is where all thoughts start and it holds all of your memories, beliefs, emotions, addictions, traumas....all the info of you. Hypnosis allows you to take in new thought patterns and positive beliefs directly through the subconscious, bypassing the conscious part of your mind that can overthink and overanalyze matters. There are two parts to a hypnotherapy session. During the first 10-15 minutes you will participate in a guided relaxation to allow your entire body to become completely relaxed and comfortable. Once in this relaxed state, you will be guided further on your journey of change through verbal + repetitive direct commands and positive suggestions. This lasts between 15-30 minutes depending on what is being addressed.
Hypnotherapy Myth #1
I am not able to become hypnotized.
Fact: You use hypnosis on multiple occasions, probably daily. If you have ever been driving and you "zone out" or been really into a movie and didn't hear your loved one trying to get your attention, that's what hypnosis is like- the daydream state.
3 Key Components To A Successful Hypnosis Session
In order to have the most beneficial, successful hypnotherapy experience, you must: Truly want what it is you are changing. It can't be because you think you should or because it will please someone else. Your want to change has to be yours and only yours. When you have the want or will to change something, hypnosis hands the power over to you to make those changes. Relax to the best of your ability. This does not mean you have to become a statue or even know how to meditate. This is just about allowing your body to rest. Your mind may even wander from time to time and that's okay too. Use your imagination. You read that right, play along with the words you hear during your experience. Your subconscious responds to images so the more you can imagine or visualize in your mind what I am saying, your subconscious will start to take those images in as your truth. So, if you are told your eyes are so heavy you can't open them, pretend or imagine what that would feel like and act as if.
