Clinical hypnosis is a therapeutic technique designed to induce deep relaxation with deep concentration. Everyone has hypnotic aptitude at varying levels. In my experience, even people with a modest amount of hypnotic talent are able to benefit from hypnotherapy. Hypnosis can be particularly helpful for problems related to anxiety, problematic behaviors (such as smoking or over eating), or when a person is “blocked” in the progress they are trying to make in traditional psychotherapy.

I often integrate hypnosis and hypnotic techniques into my work. It is my belief that all hypnosis is self-hypnosis; and by that I mean that this is a technique that is fairly easy to learn, and a process that is completely under the control of the person learning it. Most people find hypnosis to be a pleasurable and very relaxing experience where they have a sense of well-being and energy at the end of the session.
