“There are no limitations on your life, except for those you make.” – Les Brown.
Over the course of my professional life, no matter what my job title was or the responsibilities it entailed, I ultimately functioned as a mentor, communicator, liaison and confidant – a coach. I wanted to be able to affect change at a deeper level and knew there had to be a way – and I don’t give up very easily. I learned about hypnosis and knew “this is it”. Hypnosis is “that” way. I sought out the most comprehensive and trusted existing program, the Hypnotherapy Academy of America. In addition to general hypnotherapy education, I have specialized training in the study of hypnosis, code of ethics, and medical hypnosis – all lectured by a pediatrician, physicians, and psychiatrists.
I work with a variety of issues, focusing mainly on hypnotherapy for athletic performance and medical support hypnotherapy for athletes.
I eagerly continue to develop and train in hypnotherapy, and am currently a Fellow with the International Board of Hypnotherapy.
HYPNOSIS VS. HYPNOTHERAPY
Hypnosis is a relaxed state of mind/body that allows you to totally focus and concentrate. Hypnosis is effective as long as a person is open-minded, has a true desire to improve, and is committed to his or her goal.
Hypnotherapy is the use of the hypnotic state to solve problems. Hypnotherapy enables people to change habits, reduce stress and achieve their goals — much more easily than anyone can in a state of normal awareness. It’s been used for thousands of years to help people with a wide variety of mental and physical challenges.
Disclaimer: Hypnotherapy is an educational and self-improvement process that facilitates access to a person’s internal resources to assist him/her in solving problems, increasing motivation, or altering behavior patterns to create positive change.
