What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis can simply be defined as a state of heightened suggestibility in which you’re able to access and reprogram your mind. It’s an integrative process of rebuilding deep seeded perceptions, habits and behaviors, as well as emotions, beliefs, and feelings.
What if I can’t be hypnotized?
If you have ever driven on the highway and realized that you cannot remember the last few miles or you have become totally engrossed in a television program, you know you are a good hypnotic subject.
Can I be made to do something against my will?
No way and Definitely not! – although you are relaxed, you are in control the entire time.
What happens at my first session?
We discuss your current situation in detail and then together we create a specific strategy that will work for you. Generally, we will do some introductory trance work at this time.
How many sessions will I need?
There is not a set number of sessions. The average is between three and five. You have the option to see if you enjoy the process and its relevance to your life. Each person is treated individually and can monitor his or her own progress from session to session.
The National Guild of Hypnotists was founded in 1951 and is the oldest and largest organization of it's kind. Professional membership in the NGH signifies that an individual possesses specific qualifications, agrees to abide by strict code of ethics, and will pursue continuing-education studies for annual recertification. Medical or psychological referrals may be required for certain conditions.
NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming).
Neuro refers to your neurology; Linguistic refers to language; programming refers to how that neural language functions. In other words, learning NLP is like learning the language of your own mind!
Neuro-Linguistic Programming is like a user’s manual for the brain, and taking an NLP training is like learning how to become fluent in the language of your mind so that the ever-so-helpful “server” that is your unconscious will finally understand what you actually want out of life.
As such, NLP is related to the area of human–computer interaction.
