How I work with Clients
Hypnotherapy rapidly engages a client's inner resources and wisdom, empowering clients not only in their own healing, but also in their ability to respond to future life challenges and transitions.
Hypnosis is a natural and familiar state of mind similar to daydreaming or deep concentration. The main difference between these trance-like experiences and therapeutic hypnosis is motivation and intention.
Through the use of hypnosis, you experience an altered state of consciousness that allows you to directly access your subconscious mind. By speaking to the subconscious in language it can easily hear you change patterns you have outgrown - creating new healthy images out of the old.
You will use an intention to work toward your personal goals, and you are the one who is controlling the process. As a result, you can remove subconscious blocks and find guidance from within your deep self.
In my practice I use Hypnotherapy by itself or combine it with Reiki, based on your personal choices and needs. The combined approach is especially helpful for physical manifestations of emotional issues or for supporting deep inner healing.
Reiki (pronounced RAY-key) means universal life energy in Japanese. The art of Reiki is a system of gentle vibrational healing that was established by Dr. Usui from Japan in the late 19th century.
Reiki practice is a subtle energy therapy that is most commonly facilitated by light touch, and is believed to balance the biofield and strengthen the body's ability to heal itself.
Private Session Reiki
Reiki treats the whole person and is practiced while you are lying on a table wearing loose, comfortable clothing. You may perceive a pulsing or tingling sensation, a feeling of warmth and comfort, or a sense of release.
Reiki can be used to reduce physical and emotional pain, to calm the mind and experience deep relaxation, to assist in times of transition, grief and life- style changes.
Reiki can help:
alleviate anxiety & depression
promote restful sleep
break habits and addictions
reduce the need for pain medication in acute and chronic conditions
ease side effects of chemotherapy and similar medical interventions
