The Scoop on Hypnotherapy

Been hearing about other entrepreneurs using hypnotherapy as a tool and wondering – WTF, how does that work?! There are a lot of assumptions and misconceptions about what hypnotherapy actually is and how it works, so in this episode I’m getting you up to speed with the hypnosis hype!

But first, how did I get involved in this in the first place?

My first experience with hypnotherapy was with pre-recorded hypnosis audios I received when going through Manifestation Baby Academy. I loved listening to the recordings a few times each week during the program, and continue listening to them periodically still today. But it wasn’t until I dove deeper into learning how hypnosis actually works that I really feel in love with it.

I am now a certified Hypnotherapy Practitioner and am able to use this technique with my clients 1:1, in groups and in guided self-hypnosis audios.

Now back to the scoop!

What Hypnotherapy IS NOT:

Usually when we think of hypnosis we think of those stage acts where the hypnotist has someone come up on stage and do silly things. Usually the person chosen is someone who obviously wants to get some attention and create a laugh, and this is not what we’re talking about today!

First off – Hypnotherapy is NOT brainwashing. Brainwashing requires the person to removed from their typical environment. They’re usually deprived of sleep and experience negative consequences if they don’t comply with what’s being asked of them.

During hypnotherapy you’re not being controlled, you’re not asleep, you’re not unconscious or being made to act like someone else.

What Hypnotherapy Actually Is:

Hypnotherapy is a powerful way to connect to the subconscious mind to reprogram our thoughts, behaviors, actions and so much more. It’s a way to regain control of our mind – vs. allowing unwanted beliefs and programs to run the show.

In hypnotherapy you are awake and in a state of relaxation. You’re in total control and fully aware the whole time when in trance.

Through hypnosis you’re able to create incredible results because you can bypass the critical faculty in your brain – the part of you that distinguishes between reality and fantasy – and embed the results you want as a reality to your subsconcious mind.

The hypnotherapist will have an interview early in the session to bring to life that ideal positive outcome you’re wanting. They will then take you through an induction script to get you in the right calm, relaxed, trance state – and then into the therapy portion of the session using that positive imagery they brought out of you earlier.

1:1 hypnotherapy is the most powerful since its fully customized to you and using your own language. Pre-recorded audios are also a very powerful tool to use as well!

How Hypnotherapy Can Help You Reach Your Life & Business Goals:

  • Helps to change your behaviors and patterns into ones that are serving you
  • Helps to shift and up level your beliefs (self image, money, confidence, anything really!)
  • Aligns your thoughts repeating everyday to where you actually want to be
  • Is also used often for weight loss and to quit smoking
