With experience as a Registered Nurse and a Hypnotherapist, I use a variety of techniques available to help people dealing with difficulties with habit control, stress, excessive eating, smoking, fears, motivation, self-confidence, concentration, learning deficiencies, sleeplessness, goal-setting, relationships and other areas which lead to unhappiness, dysfunction or difficulty in achieving their personal goals.
Control is important. Humans have two distinct minds— the conscious mind and the unconscious mind. The unconscious mind is vastly larger and more powerful than the conscious mind, yet it is the least understood and used by humankind. Actually, the great “unconscious” mind has two functional elements, the subconscious and the superconscious, the former the storehouse of memory, the latter dealing with the spiritual.
Does it Work?
The subconscious mind receives and retains, all the messages we receive from our background, whether genetic, social, religious or experiential, plus all the conflicts, minute to immense, that come into our lives each day. When for whatever reason the conscious mind, which deals with everyday living, logic, and reason, becomes overloaded, the subconscious prepares us for what is considered an appropriate action, fight or flight. However, the subconscious mind does not analyze, as does the conscious mind, but accepts all messages in the literal sense.
In reality, hypnosis is a means of communication between the conscious mind and the subconscious mind. Many difficulties such as habits, stresses, anxieties, attitudes or apparent deficiencies can be traced to interpretations by our subconscious minds which, when understood by the conscious mind, can reduce or resolve specific problems.
The subconscious is also the headquarters of all memory. Traumatic events can be buried or suppressed in the subconscious. A major benefit of hypnosis is its ability to discover and bring into the light an understanding of the suppressed information or experience, which may be the source of a known or unknown difficulty.
I use my skills as a hypnotherapist as an important adjunct to counseling psychology, psychotherapy, psychiatry, and also medical fields including neurology, obstetrics, emergency medicine, burn therapy and pain management.
