Stress Management

Regardless of what is causing stress in your life, hypnotherapy is an effective management tool. Using gentle hypnosis techniques that allow you to bypass your conscious mind and gain access to the subconscious, you become more aware of the stressors that trigger harmful physical and emotional responses.In addition to helping you understand the root causes of stress in your life, hypnotherapy can also help you reduce the intensity of your emotional and physical reactions to stressful situations. Relaxation techniques will help you moderate breathing, blood pressure and muscle tension. Over time, hypnotherapy can help you permanently alter the beliefs, habits and attitudes that make you susceptible to stress and its harmful effects.

Quit Quitting: Hypnosis for Smoking Cessation

Smoking is a habitual behavior, fed by unconscious reasons and motivations. Hypnosis effects permanent change by uncovering and dealing with these motivations, allowing for more resourceful choices than smoking. It is by changing the mind that we change the behavior. Adverse side-effects of other stop-smoking programs, such as weight gain, nervousness, or withdrawal symptoms, rarely occur in a hypnotic intervention. Smokers find the transition to nonsmoker more comfortable and natural with hypnosis.
