Hypnotherapy is different than the practice of medicine or psychological counseling. In our process you use the power of your own mind to establish new patterns of thought, feeling, or behavior. This is accomplished by opening a line of communication with the subconscious part of the mind.
Movies and television can sometimes present wild and unrealistic views of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy. You know, the guy with the swinging watch, mind control, and that kind of thing. But that’s not what Hypnotherapy is about at all. It’s about you gaining more control through the practical and efficient use of your natural mental abilities.
