Using hypnosis means using your head - working with your mind. It's the smart and easy way to change any habit or unwanted behavior. It works well with smoke cessation and weight control, providing enough motivation exists. In other words, it must be YOU who wants to make the change.
Willpower requires an immense amount of stamina and struggle. The moment you become fatigued or stressed, it will stop working. While willpower can help break the physical addiction or habit, it does not touch the psychological part. When the subconscious comes to the surface, as in hypnosis, changing behaviors is made easier and permanent.
Your subconscious is much like an automatic pilot. It controls your behavior, habits and emotions. Hypnosis is a safe and natural process that happens to everyone many times a day. While involved in something like driving, walking, reading, watching television, or going into or coming out of sleep, you are actually in some level of hypnosis.
When you are having a hypnotherapy session, you will be intentionally induced into this natural state (of hypnosis) for the purpose of accepting positive suggestions. The suggestions will only be ideas that you have agreed upon before hypnosis, to help you make changes to achieve a specific goal.
Testimonial .... From the mother of a young man who had a pot smoking habit:
"Terry, I've seen such a significant improvement and I want to thank you for your help. I feel like I've gotten my old son back!
He no longer has to drag himself out of bed in the morning. He has lost weight, changed his diet, is clean shaven, is studying more and keeps company with a better group of friends. He has even returned to some old hobbies he used to enjoy. (He just bought a new fishing pole.) He said he's been able to sleep well, no longer feels anxious at night, and hasn't had any nightmares. He seems to have more mental clarity. When we have a discussion, he is more focused and can articulate his thoughts well. Before, his thoughts were scattered and it showed when he spoke.
