Clinical Hypnosis

Clinical hypnosis is a safe, natural, and highly effective means for treating a wide range of issues, from anxiety and depression to smoking, pain, and habits that you want to let go of. I also use clinical hypnosis to help people with social anxiety, public speaking, and phobias.

I am a member of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis and The National Board for Certified Clinical Hypnotherapists. I have received training from Michael Yapko, internationally known expert in clinical hypnosis. I have presented trainings on hypnosis at businesses and schools in the Triangle.

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is:

A combination of focused attention, relaxation, and greater openness to suggestion.

A naturally-occurring state. Everyday examples include: getting so absorbed in work or lost in a book that you don’t hear someone calling your name, or driving your car and not remembering the last few miles.

Neutral – simply being hypnotized does not create positive or negative changes. It’s what happens during hypnosis that matters.

 What Is “Clinical Hypnosis”?

Clinical Hypnosis is the application of Hypnosis to achieve positive results. It has been well-researched for many decades, and found to be a highly effective treatment for a wide range of issues, from anxiety and depression to smoking and pain.

What Happens During Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is PARTICIPATORY. It is not done TO you – it is done WITH you.

When you participate in hypnosis, you are awake, aware, and in control.

You cannot be hypnotized against your will, and once you begin hypnosis, you can choose to end your participation at any time.
