Why Hypnosis?

There are two key concepts for understanding why hypnosis is such an important tool for creating life changes.

Homeostasis: Homeostasis is our innate unconscious drive to “stay the same” or resist changes at a subconscious level. While we may consciously and intellectually desire a change in our feelings, reactions, or habits, at a deeper level our subconscious defense mechanisms seek to preserve the status quo, i.e., resist efforts to change.  While talking, planning, discussion, and rational understanding of behavior are all important concepts (and often relied upon in traditional talk therapy), they do not address the subconscious thoughts, fears, and limiting beliefs that may be sabotaging our success and/or efforts to change.

Neuroplasticity:  On a personal, spiritual, and behavioral level, neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to change throughout an individual’s life. Our ability to change beliefs, emotional responses, and behavioral habits is dependent on the flexibility of our mind. Hypnosis, Therapeutic Imagery, NLP, mindfulness, and more, are the tools used in hypnotherapy to facilitate the internal, emotional, behavioral flexibility needed to overcome homeostasis and align the subconscious mind with the positive changes and results we desire.

You can think of a Hypnotherapist as a Coach for the Subconscious Mind. Using your goals as a playbook, a hypnotherapist coaches your mind towards releasing resistance and blocks and accepting the thoughts, ideas, beliefs, and behaviors you need to achieve your goals.
