I Help People THRIVE by Mashing Together Spiritual Psychology & Clinical Hypnosis.
Hypnosis helps the subconscious mind to change and reframe destructive patterns.
Spiritual psychologies principles suggests that your life is a series of lessons, the maxim is “how you work the issue is the issue.” Combining the two modalities together creates a system that allows awareness of life’s misunderstandings and judgments to be reframed into new positive ones. Over eating, relationship issues, and even test anxiety are reactions that have been programmed in attempt to alleviate root issues that have not been worked through. By using clinical hypnosis, the subconscious mind can be reprogrammed to respond to the new choice of a healthier lifestyle.
Relationship issues evaporate because Clinical Hypnosis changes thought patterns and belief systems.
It is one thing to work with the “conscious mind,” (I no longer want to eat the chocolate cake or, I really want to stop smoking now”) which represents our will-power, reasoning, and logic, however; the subconscious mind and it’s library of association, (what we have learned in childhood, “I love chocolate cake, or, smoking relaxes me,”) and their associations, must be reprogrammed so that all of our new intentions can be honored and put into place. This is also true for abandonment and fears anything that is disturbing your peace. ” What we learn as children we become as adults.”
In 2001 The British Psychological Society commissioned a working group to write a formal report on hypnosis.
The remit given to the working group was: “to provide a considered statement about hypnosis and important issues concerning its application and practice in a range of contexts, notably for clinical purposes, forensic investigation, academic research, entertainment and training.”
The results are in: Hypnotherapy has Therapeutic Effectiveness:
“Enough studies have now accumulated to suggest that the inclusion of hypnotic procedures may be beneficial in the management and treatment of a wide range of conditions and problems encountered in the practice of medicine, psychiatry and psychotherapy.” (BPS, 2001)
“There is convincing evidence that hypnotic procedures are effective in the management and relief of both acute and chronic pain and in assisting in the alleviation of pain, discomfort and distress due to medical and dental procedures and childbirth”. (BPS, 2001)
“Hypnosis and the practice of self-hypnosis may significantly reduce general anxiety, tension and stress in a manner similar to other relaxation and self-regulation procedures.”
“Likewise, hypnotic treatment may assist in insomnia in the same way as other relaxation methods.” (BPS, 2001)
Most people in the world associate hypnosis with a form of entertainment
The cliché clock swaying back and forth in front of a volunteer’s face that magically convinces them that they are a chicken or convinces them to bark like a dog. It’s entertaining to witness these silly antics on stage; however, when taken more seriously, clinical hypnosis can be used as a very effective therapeutic and enlightening tool. Hypnotherapy allows you to navigate subconscious feelings, release and heal them, and then create a better version of yourself.
Hypnosis has been practiced within professions such as psychiatrists, psychologists, physicians, dentists, chiropractors, marriage counselors, social workers, nurses, and physical therapists.

To gain a better understanding of what it is like to be in a hypnotic trance, think about when you daydream; you wake up realizing that you are sitting at your desk in the office, you have been looking out the window and now you are back in the present moment, back at the task in front of you. You were in the land of daydreaming far off from anything work-related. Perhaps you were on a vacation in France or a dancer in front of a delightful audience. The world is no longer around you, but just a minute ago, another world existed. Daydreaming is a similar to hypnosis. Depending upon ones suggestibility, a person can go in and out of trance-like states several times a day.
Hypnosis happens when the conscious and subconscious mind comes together.
In this state you are not asleep or awake. It is somewhere in between.
A hypnotic sleep is a twilight experience. Hypnosis is a heightened state of awareness that in a positive way, alters the state of consciousness. When in this state, you are aware of your surroundings including all the noises around you. On another level, you feel distant from those sounds and surroundings, it is as if there is an absence of time. Hypnosis is a focus of concentration where visualizing and imagining take place. While in the state of hypnosis, the subconscious mind is open and receptive to receive positive images and suggestions. Hypnotherapist, specifically, design the client’s session based upon client needs and desires. Hypnosis occurs when an overload of message units and information comes into the conscious mind. The conscious mind has a difficult time handling the amount of data it is receiving so an escape occurs. This escape is called the fight and flight mechanism. When the flight and flight mechanism has been activated, ones suggestibility has been heightened and the subconscious mind can be more easily accessed. Whether a person is in self-hypnosis or has help from a therapist, the subject must want the experience. The subject will only do what they want to do; they are in control at all times. Because of the fact that the client must have the desire to be hypnotized, all hypnosis can be considered self-hypnosis.
