How Does Hypnotherapy Work?
Hypnotherapy is a simple tool. I guide my clients into a light relaxation and from there; they have greater access to the deeper part of their mind.
When the busy conscious mind is put slightly to the side, greater awareness is possible.
A recent article in the Washington Times described:
“Hypnosis as a state where the sub-conscious can readily accept and act on new information and suggestions for healing, change, growth and attainment of individual goals.”
Further, a Penn State University article discussing the stereotypes and validity of hypnosis as a therapeutic technique notes:
“Studies have shown us that good hypnotic subjects are active problem solvers. While it’s true that the subconscious mind is more open to suggestion during hypnosis, that doesn’t mean that the subject’s free will or moral judgment is turned off.”
