Hypnosis can help you understand yourself better; it can
help you change your bad habits into good ones, and it
can transform your negative feelings into positive ones.
When hypnosis is used for therapeutic purposes you are
always in control. Hypnosis is strictly a voluntary act
wherein you always remain conscious; you’re always aware
and able to hear, to talk, and to make decisions. As the
therapist I cannot make you do anything that you would
not normally do.
Can anyone be hypnotized?
Anyone of normal intelligence can be hypnotized and you
can only be hypnotized if you want to be and willingly
follow the hypnotist’s instructions. There are people
who are more suggestible, more or less hypnotizable, and
some more or less willing than others. Most people fall
into the middle once they understand what it’s about and
realize that it is safe and it is going to help them.
Once you are in the state of relaxation you will become
receptive to the suggestions.
How do you begin?
Beginning is fairly simple. It is important for you to
step out of your own way and have a desire to change.
This desire to change is a gift to you, from you. You
will need to open your mind a little to the possibility
of change. Then, schedule your first appointment.
The first appointment is an interactive meeting where
both you and I work together to create a plan that will
be most useful to you. I will also describe briefly the
misconceptions about hypnosis and answer any questions
or concerns you might have about the session.
Most sessions are one hour long. I do advise that you
return at least once within a week for a second session
and if needed, we will schedule future sessions. It all
depends on the individual.
Hypnotherapy Case Study
"I was a smoker for over 34 years using various forms of
tobacco products from cigarettes, to pipes and cigars. I
had previously tried to quit numerous times, utilizing
various forms of smoking cessation including the “patch”
and even aversion therapy but none of the methods worked
for me. At age 52, I decided that I would try one last
attempt to add some longevity to my life and elected to
try hypnosis. I underwent two separate sessions with
Normajean, two weeks apart from each other, and now, two
years later, I remain a non smoker. I went to each
session with an open mind, a sincere desire to quit and
a belief that this really" D.
