Einstein famously said, “We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that we used when we created them”. Therefore, you may need a new way of thinking to access a new level of results in your life. At some level, the problems that arise our awareness really are problems of the imagination. This isn’t suggesting that they aren’t “real”, simply that our imagination is much more powerful than most people give credit to. What we change in the core of our subjective reality changes the way we view our situation and also what we choose to do about it. In turn, this changes our experience of external reality significantly. If a limiting belief that you’ve held points only to a problem that exists outside of you (such as another person or situation) it could mean that you’ve been putting the locus of control outside rather than inside where it belongs. Having an intrinsic rather than extrinsic locus of control is paramount in order to live an empowered lifestyle. We may not always be able to control external events but we can certainly adjust ourselves and decide how to be proactive. This is why we can only be ready to change our lives when we are ready to accept responsibility for our reactions and decisions. Once you’ve done this it puts you back in the seat of empowerment and it makes you ready to change your circumstances in a profound way. There are many of other ways to use hypnotherapy in your life to address a multitude of other issues not listed here. If you haven’t figured out what’s troubling you specifically, it’s perfectly okay. The process I use helps you to flesh that out and decide on the next step. Sometimes a general feeling of uneasiness simply requires a conversation to clear it up. Book a free consultation call today and let’s talk about it. Book Now

  • What is NLP?
    NLP or Neuro-Linguistic Programming is all about studying the patterns of behavior and beliefs underlying our worldly results. By learning and understanding the inner language of the mind we discover the way to create the results we want to achieve in our lives. NLP is not only a powerful way to study and understand but also to influence our subjective experiences. The founders of NLP discovered some of the most effective tools for self-discovery and inner change-work. NLP methodology harnesses both the conscious mind and the unconscious mind in order to create powerful new behaviors and beliefs. There is much overlap between NLP and hypnosis. NLP can be considered a form or style of hypnosis and the technique of hypnosis often incorporates language and methods that are in common with NLP. Both methods are geared toward the same goal even though there are differences between them. I weave both methodologies seamlessly when I work with you to achieve your desired results. NLP can be ideal for people who want to experience transformative changes without the requirement of a deep relaxation response or feeling as though you are dissociated into a “hypnotic trance”.
  • What is Hypnosis/Hypnotherapy?
    Hypnosis is a word for describing a multitude of methods for coaching us into the mindset that can change our inner experience of the world in positive ways. It is also a technique for shaping the subjective experiences of our everyday reality in a more intentional rather than passive way. The goal of hypnotherapy is to retrain your mind so that it serves you instead of working against you. How you make sense of circumstances in your life changes the menu of options from which your automatic responses arise. If you can shift the core parts in the structure of your conceptions you can instantly change your reactions and behaviors within that system. How would you like to feel about something important to you if you could consciously choose how to feel about it? – Finding out the answer to that key question is what hypnosis and hypnotherapy are all about.
