Is Hypnosis Part of Your Health Care Strategy?

The use and acceptance of hypnosis as a viable method of complementary health care is on the rise. I recently read a newspaper article from the 1970’s, entitled Police Told Perils of Hypnosis, which gave the strong impression that hypnosis was dangerous and not to be messed with. Thank goodness, things have changed since then!

Thanks to TV and radio ads for hypnosis, and the barrage of “Groupon” type discounts for hypnosis, the public in general is becoming less skeptical of its value and legitimacy. The word “hypnosis” is becoming more mainstream, less suspicious for many. » Read the rest of this entry «

The 6 Most Popular Weight Loss Topics

December 11th, 2013 § Comments Off on The 6 Most Popular Weight Loss Topics § permalink

After working with hundreds of weight loss clients over the years I have identified the 6 most popular weight loss topics. This article explains them.

I’ve written about weight loss before, but I’d like talk about it in more detail today. There’s an old saying that goes something like this, “Until your disgust and dislike of the status quo is greater than your disgust and dislike of making change, nothing is going to change.”

It sounds obvious, but for a lot of people who want to lose weight, the idea of actually changing their behavior is unacceptable. They want to lose weight, to be smaller, to look better, but not at the expense of changing their eating habits, and for many, certainly not if they have to exercise! It just seems too hard, and for many, after repeated attempts and failures, it’s just not realistic.

This is where hypnosis comes in. Hypnosis is NOT a magic wand, but for those who understand, and accept, the fact that they need to change their relationship with food, it can make that transition much quicker, more enjoyable, and permanent.

After working with hundreds of weight loss clients over the years I have identified certain patterns and similarities in regard to weight loss obstacles. I’ve narrowed these patterns and similarities down to six and created not only a 6-pack of hypnosis recordings addressing each topic, but also a 12-hour weight loss workshop that addresses each topic in detail. (If you are interested in more information about the 6-pack of hypnosis recordings and/or the corresponding workshop, just click here: 12 Week Self-Guided Hypnosis Weight Loss Program download, Weight Loss Workshop) » Read the rest of this entry «

Is Stage Hypnosis Real?

October 31st, 2013 § Comments Off on Is Stage Hypnosis Real? § permalink

Is stage hypnosis real? How does it compare to the hypnosis used when working with a consulting hypnotist? Are the participants being controlled? These questions, and more, are addressed in this article by Debbie Taylor.

For many, their first exposure to hypnosis is at the local fair, or during a high school assembly, watching a stage hypnotist seemingly “control” his subjects, to the amazement of the audience.

Many people, when they first meet me and find out that I’m a consulting hypnotist, can’t help but ask, “Are you going to make me quack like a duck?” At first I just chuckled and went along with it, but this has been going on for years now! If I had a dollar for every time I’ve been asked, “Are you going to make me quack like a duck?” I could retire.

I take my work as a consulting hypnotist seriously. My clients put a lot of trust in my ability to help them, to really listen and assist them to create change in their lives. So I wondered, what is all this talk about quacking? And how is stage hypnosis different from the work I do as a consulting hypnotist? Are those people on stage ‘really’ hypnotized? And if so, how does that work?

So I decided to find out for myself by going to Las Vegas, where I received training as a stage hypnotist, and I’m here to tell you, ”Yes, those people on stage really are hypnotized!” » Read the rest of this entry «

The Demystification of Hypnosis

October 1st, 2013 § Comments Off on The Demystification of Hypnosis § permalink

I have been so immersed in the world of hypnosis for such a long time that I forget how weird it is for some people. Hypnosis is just weird. A valid opinion for those who don’t fully understand what hypnosis really is and how it works.

One of my goals as a consulting hypnotist at Intuitive Hypnosis in Portland, Oregon, is to focus on the demystification of hypnosis for as many people as I can, on a regular basis. I have spent the last 4 years offering free lectures about hypnosis, I have written dozens of articles about hypnosis, and I have educated and informed each of my clients about hypnosis and how it works. As mentioned above, I have been so immersed in the world of hypnosis for such a long time that I forget there are still many people who just think it’s weird. » Read the rest of this entry «
