Hypnotherapy is the use of different types of therapy while in the natural yet altered state of mind known as hypnosis. Hypnotherapy utilizes the mind’s own natural abilities, to resolve issues, relieve emotional burdens and achieve personal goals. It is a safe, effective process that involves the client and therapist working together to bring about positive changes in how they think, feel and act.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
Neuro-Linguistic Programming is a method of influencing brain behavior, ("neuro"), through the use of language, ("linguistic"), and other types of communication to enable a person to "recode" the way the brain responds to stimuli (programming) and manifest new and better behaviors. NLP often incorporates hypnosis and self-hypnosis to help achieve the change (or "re-programming") that is wanted.
Autosuggestion is a psychological technique used to form positive beliefs about yourself. It is a self-development method comprised of positive words and sentences, used repeatedly, to change your perception about yourself, end bad habits, changing emotional states and reprogram new ideas in your mind and thereby produce a different outcome in behavior.
Havening is a healing modality designed to help individuals overcome problems that are the consequence of traumatic encoding. Havening techniques belong to a larger group of methods called psychosensory therapies, which use sensory input to alter thought, mood and behavior.
Mental imagery often used interchangeably with visualization or guided imagery is the language of the mind. It is used by the mind to communicate with the inner and outer realms. Imagery refers to the awareness of sensory perception. The physical and cognitive experiences of imagery are used in a variety of health and healing practices and is often used in conjunction with hypnotherapy.
Autogenics is a technique that teaches your body to respond to your verbal commands. These commands "tell" your body to relax and control breathing, blood pressure, heartbeat, and body temperature. Autogenics can be used regularly to relieve stress, enjoy deep relaxation and prevent the effects of chronic stress.
Thought Field Therapy (TFT)
Thought Field Therapy is a unique mind-body therapy that capitalizes on the power of the body's energy system to relieve the emotional distress associated with most psychological problems. This is the same energy system used in acupuncture but without the needles. A trained TFT practitioner is able to quickly diagnosis which of the energy meridians are out of balance and once diagnosed, the treatment involves having the client tap on certain locations on their body in a specific order, while focusing on the psychological problem. Mentally tuning into the problem is vital during both diagnosis and treatment.
There are 7 main energy centers in the body, known as chakras. Each chakra throughout the body correlates to specific body ailment and physical dysfunctions. Each of these energy centers also houses our mental and emotional strengths. When we have a physical issue, it creates weaknesses in our emotional behavior. When we release the stale energy from the body, it can undo any tightness, stiffness, or malfunction of that area. Releasing or clearing this energy also brings balance to our emotional state of mind. On the contrary, if there are certain fears and emotions we are holding on to, we can experience a physical restriction. Keeping the chakra centers balanced is key to mind-body health.
