Hypnosis is a strategy that utilizes relaxation to heighten the mind’s focus, enabling you to collect all of your inner resources and increase self-control.  Contrary to hypnosis seen in movies and on tv, clinical hypnosis operates to create a natural state where one actually experiences increased self-control, not loss of self-control.  Hypnosis allows for us to experience a state of consciousness that can bring about healing, self-exploration, and change through access to thoughts, talents, and experiences that are not usually accessible to us in our everyday awareness.  Hypnosis has been used to treat a wide variety of life problems including physical, mental, and emotional challenges.
