What is hypnosis?


Hypnosis is a natural state of mind that we all go in and out of everyday when we are falling asleep and waking up.  It takes place in the Alpha and Theta brain wave state which lie between Beta (waking consciousness) and Delta (deep sleep).


The following experts define hypnosis in these ways:

A state of intensified attention and receptiveness, and an increased 

responsiveness to an idea or to a set of ideas. ~ Milton H. Erickson


We might compare (Hypnosis) to a teeter-totter.  In the waking state, the conscious mind is at the high end of the teeter-totter and the subconscious mind at the low end.  Under hypnosis, they reverse and the subconscious is at the high end and the conscious at the low end, but it is still present.  Thoughts rise from the inner mind into the consciousness.   ~ Leslie M. LeCron

An altered state within which suggestions have a peculiarly potent effect. ~ K.S. Bowers

What does hypnosis feel like?


Everyone's experience is different, but many people experience feelings of euphoria and deep relaxation. You are aware, alert and in complete control – but you are focused intently on what you are doing. 

Does hypnotherapy really work?


Hypnotherapy was approved by the American Medical Association in 1958 for over 800 uses. It has been proven to overcome pain, improve memory and concentration, support behavior modification, alleviate anxiety, insomnia, headaches, phobias, tinnitus, depression and unhealthy anger.  It can empower you to heal emotional trauma and accomplish your goals. It is useful in every area of self-improvement. Click here to read a study by Harvard Magazine on the healing capabilities of Hypnosis. ​​

The door to happiness opens from the inside. ~ Proverb

What is Coaching?


The International Coach Federation (the gold standard in coaching) defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their potential.

If you don't like something, change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it. ~ Mary Engelbreit
