MY THERAPEUTIC APPROACH
Melding the conventional with the alternative in a unique solutions-focused approach
In my practice, I use hypnosis to create a window into the subconscious mind, which is extremely receptive to positive suggestion. With your input and unique knowledge of yourself, I formulate a way to correct those mistaken beliefs, replace those negative feelings or remove those habits while you are in a deeply relaxed state.
To more accurately assess those beliefs and create the right customized suggestions, I have developed a unique approach to the discovery process that leverages my extensive clinical background. The result is a client specific experience that allows me to evoke what is often a profound resolution for you – leading to lasting, positive change in thought and behaviour.
Taking place over what is typically a three to five session duration, you will be led through a process that includes Discovery and Anxiety Reduction, Focused Suggestion, and Strengthening.
Your first session will be exploratory and dynamic, geared towards gathering personal history, current information, and asking specific questions relevant to the therapeutic issue. From mistaken beliefs about ourselves come negative thoughts and feelings. These often lead to maladaptive behaviours and unwanted painful outcomes. Properly identifying these mistaken beliefs is also an important part of the first session.
Throughout the session I listen for what you say but haven’t yet actually heard yourself. I speak up for what you hint at but haven’t yet articulated. This process requires privacy, respect, curiosity, effort and attention.
Typically, you will be put into hypnosis about half way through a session. The hypnosis can be used to reinforce your will, or to uncover and remove troubling issues.
