Hypnosis is a very powerful tool that can treat a vast array of issues and conditions quickly with a 93% success rate. What else can you say that about? Not much, right?
Hypnosis is a state that we naturally go in and out of throughout our day. Ever been driving on "auto pilot" and arrive at your destination, but not remember the drive? You know the state you are in just before you fall asleep or upon waking, when you aren't asleep, but not quite really awake? That is the state of hypnosis. See? We've all been there.
Hypnosis is about using that natural state to tap into the power of your own subconscious mind, to achieve your self-improvement goals. I like to call it, "a short cut to change". When the teacher told you to study right before bed, so you'll remember what you learned for the test the next day, she was on to something! Many people think of hypnosis only for use with habits such as smoking cessation or losing weight. While it certainly is good for those, the power of the mind has no limits for personal application.
As a Certified Hypnotherapist, I work with an almost endless array of personal achievement goals. In some cases, a medical referral may be required for issues of pain management, and other medical related issues. If you are working with another counseling professional already, or have goals beyond personal self-improvement, then I may ask for a referral from the appropriate psychology professional.
It would be nearly impossible to list every possible application for hypnosis, but the adjacent list can give you a general idea of some of the possible applications.
