Clinical Hypnosis - an easy way to change
Hypnosis is a state of relaxation (there are 6 levels of hypnotic relaxation) which allows the Clinical Hypnotherapist, with the individual's permission, to give agreed upon instructions to the unconscious mind. There are two basic uses of Clinical Hypnosis: (1) Direct Suggestion and (2) Age Regression. Both Direct Suggestion and Age Regression utilize metaphors to enhance the unconscious mind’s understanding of the request for changes in behavior, habit, and mindsets.
Direct Suggestion Clinical Hypnosis is achieved with use of visualization, relaxation techniques, and repetition of commands and metaphors to the unconscious according to the individual' s wishes such as: “Allow yourself to no longer ignore your alarm clock’s ring and have it be a signal to pleasantly get up ready for the day. Enjoy getting up at the first ring, if you wish!”
Age Regression allows the Clinical Hypnotherapist and patient/client to identify the cause of the issue & initial "imprinting" of the belief, which can then be "updated". Changing a belief changes the behavior, and accompanying attitude. Metaphors using the individual’s own positive experiences can increase understanding and motivation. Example: “Would it be okay to remember how good it felt when you were eating smaller portions of food and feeling proud of your self-management?”
Who Can Be Hypnotized?
According to the World Health Organization, 90% of the General Population can be hypnotized. If you want to be hypnotized, usually you can be hypnotized. Exceptions are those individuals who have: 1. Significant Cognitive disorders, 2. A mind altered drug state, 3. An alcohol altered mind, 4. Organic brain disorders.
The unconscious mind accounts for 88-97% of the brain's activity, depending on age and development. It effects both involuntary and voluntary systems, and can influence blood pressure, heartbeat, pain sensation, blood flow, healing, along with beliefs, behavior, and attitudes. Clinical Hypnotherapy allows the clinician to directly address the unconscious mind in a positive way. The unconscious mind is in control of accepting and denying suggestions and interventions, depending on the will and belief structure of the individual.
Clinical Hypnosis, with Your Help, Can Change Behavior... and Much More
Clinical Hypnosis can help you change or adjust behaviors and attitudes that you wish to change - as long as they are safe and in your best interest to change. (Your subconscious will not follow instructions that are not in your best interests.) Clinical Hypnosis can increase your motivation and ability to "do or undo" behavior and attitudes that are in you wish to change:
Some "Do's": Be positive, be motivated - to lose weight, exercise, stop smoking, feel better about yourself, increase self-confidence, increase ability to focus, increase test scores, increase ability to focus attention, improve your sports, e.g. golf, tennis, running, rowing, soccer, football, baseball, etc.
And, some "Undo's": Smoking, over-eating, gambling, drinking alcohol to excess, being negative, worrying all the time, being shy, procrastinating, being reckless,etc. Through Age Regression techniques, old traumas, troubling memories, regrets, negative self-image, and negative expectations can be treated. Optimism and a feeling of well-being can be returned and enhanced.
You are in Control
When you are hypnotized, you can still hear everything that is being said; you will remember what is being said. Maureen Turner will never tell you not to remember your hypnosis session. You will not do anything that you are not in agreement with doing. You set up the parameters in the pre-talk with Maureen Turner and spell out specifically what you want to change, and how you want to do it. The number of sessions and the amount of time and clinical intervention will depend on the needs, background and requests of the individual, and the skill and experience of the Clinical Hypnotherapist. Maureen F. Turner has 48 years as a psychotherapist and 25+ years as a Clinical Hypnotherapist. She has worked with thousands of individuals and provided over a hundred thousand hours of clinical therapy.
