Hypnosis, NLP, & Related Therapies
Hypnotherapy (or Guided Imagery as some call it) is a healing modality typically used for changing unwanted habits, manifesting goals, as well as clearing mental and emotional issues that are no longer desirable in ones life. Hypnosis can also be used to alleviate pain. These issues can generally be dealt with in a few sessions.
Weight loss, smoking cessation, release of panic attacks, IBS, Fibromyalgia and other issues are also commonly relieved with the use of hypnosis. It is also shown be work at reducing and eliminating pain.
Hypnotherapy is a relaxed state of being, a trance state. While in this state you cannot be forced to do anything that you do not want to do. This is why Hypnotherapy works best for people who really want to make changes in their life.
Stage Hypnosis - this has given many people a bad impression regarding hypnotherapy and is now against the law in some states (California for one). The stage hypnotist accepts those people who volunteer then tests them for their willingness to be manipulated. Only those people who are willing to allow the stage hypnotist to influence them are actually accepted.
In the clinical setting hypnosis only works when the client is willing to accept suggestions. The good therapist, interviews the client to determine their goals. The "induction" or hypnosis script used to hypnotize the client is for the goals they state using the same words stated by the client. If the therapist adds in any suggestions that the client does not agree with the client will not comply unless they agree with the suggestion and in some cases they will break the hypnotic state.
Timeline Therapy® is a process oriented therapy based on Hypnotherapy. It allows the client to clear emotions, without reprocessing past events. The process may clear a great deal in even one session. The process can also be used for past life regression, manifestation of goals, finding ones soul purpose, and many other healings.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is the study of how we communicate, the vocabulary we use, and the way we process information. Its techniques help facilitate the Hypnotherapy process. With NLP positive memories can be anchored for future recall and negative issues can be re-scripted and "swished" away. When we are split with regards to an issue we can "chunk up" until we are made whole once again.

Finding a HypnotherapistPlease note that hypnotherapy is not the same as psychotherapy. If you are depressed or have other mental or emotional issues please contact your medical practitioner first and ask for a referral if you feel hypnosis will help you. There is little or no licensing of hypnotherapists in most states and the educational requirements are not regulated. Be sure to ask your potential Hypnotherapist where they went to school, what college degree(s) they have as well as what boards have certified them.
