Hypnosis For Pain Management

“Don’t fight your pain; you can’t win. The paradox of recovery is that you have to surrender to win. Accepting what you cannot change makes the difference.” – Adapted from Pain Recovery:  How to Find Balance and Reduce Suffering from Chronic Pain

Hypnosis is a very effective tool that can help with the management of pain. Hypnosis doesn’t make the pain go away. Rather you learn techniques to help you deal better with the pain, and reduce the stress associated with it.

As a client once told me regarding her pain in her leg:  “I know that the pain is still there, but I just don’t think about it that much any longer. I used to think about it 24/7 and it was all that was on my mind.”

Pain And Your Mindset

If you are always thinking to yourself, “I cannot do anything about my pain!” then it will constantly be on your mind. You will never be able to dissociate with it. One of the things that hypnosis for pain management can do, is to help you to change thinking patterns that make your pain feel worse. How incredible would it be if you knew the pain was there, but you learned techniques through hypnosis to help you change your mindset so you could focus on other things!

According to a July 2, 2014 article from the American Psychological Association:  “A meta-analysis (a study of studies) in 2000 of 18 published studies by psychologists Guy Montgomery, PhD, Katherine DuHamel, PhD, and William Redd, PhD, showed that 75% of clinical and experimental participants with different types of pain obtained substantial pain relief from hypnotic techniques.”

Consult With A Physician

Before using hypnosis for pain management, you want to ensure first that the pain isn’t being caused by something that requires medical attention. In fact, if a client wants to see me for pain management hypnosis, it is my policy that I will send a letter to their doctor to make them aware that the client is using hypnosis to help them with a pain. Hypnosis can help to manage the pain, and after a short time, essentially help you to “forget” about the pain and concentrate on other things in your life.

There could be huge implications if the headaches were caused by something far more serious (a tumor, circulation issues, etc.) that required medical intervention, and you ignored them! So it is very important that you first consult with a physician regarding any pain before starting hypnosis.

If you are interested in seeing how hypnosis can help you manage your pain (or lose weight, quit smoking, gain confidence, or deal with stress), please give me a call. I offer a free screening to every client to determine whether hypnosis is going to work for them, and also if they are ready for hypnosis.

Our 5th Anniversary: A Reflection

This Month We Celebrate Our 5th Business Anniversary!

I’ve always enjoyed inspiring and empowering others to make changes, and becoming a hypnotist has allowed me to help people even more.

Whether you want to lose weight, stop smoking, reduce stress, improve your confidence, or get over performance anxiety, it all starts with a desire to help yourself. Once you realize that it starts with YOU, and you make the decision that you want to start the change, your chances for success increase dramatically—no matter which modality of help you utilize.

Over these first 5 years, I’ve had some very interesting clients (with issues beyond the more common ones named above):

  1. A woman came to see me last year that had a frustrating habit of picking her skin. In just a few short weeks, she found a new way to deal with her stress and was able to eliminate her habit.
  2. There was a man who was an avid sailor for most of his life, and suddenly without any apparent reason, became fearful to get on his boat. When he was aboard, the stress and anxiety cut short every journey. By using hypnosis, he found new ways to deal with his fear, and once again found himself enjoying his passion and loving being out on the water again.
  3. I recently finished helping a man in his late 20’s who suffered from erectile dysfunction. He found that this performance anxiety had also caused so many problems in other areas of his life. Hypnosis helped him to regain his self-confidence to the point that he rekindled love with his partner, got engaged, and also has now begun the journey of finding a new job!
  4. The last story I wanted to share is about a pre-teen who is a gifted competitive hockey player, who started losing his edge after a coach dealt harshly with him. As his parent told me, “He can skate like the wind, and outplay and out-maneuver most on the ice, but he’s now lost his confidence.” Within a very short time with hypnosis, he was able to get back to his former-self while in the game. In addition, his parent commented on his increased focus on responsibilities at home, and also how his grades started to improve!

The common thread with these examples is that the clients all wanted to get help for themselves, and took the steps to do the same. Fantastic!

Our Clients Are #1

Even though I have just a few instances, of course, ALL of my clients are valuable and special to me. May 28th will be my 5th year anniversary, and my business is growing more each year. I’m happy to say that I actually learn more about life and hypnosis from each client that comes to work on their issues. The experience with each gives me even more tools to add to my resources that I can in turn use to help the next person.

From the very first person who came to me for help, to my most recent clients, I am grateful for their business and proud of all of them for taking the steps and having the courage and persistence to seek help for their issues.

I offer a free hypnosis screening to every client to assess whether hypnosis is going to work for them, and also if they are ready for hypnosis.

In addition, we have an incredible Anniversary Sale on right now! You can get $100.00 off any hypnosis program you sign up for. Just be sure to mention the code:  “HAPPY5TH” when booking to take advantage of the offer.

Hypnosis can help you take control of your own life and help you achieve your goals! Call now for your free 30-40 minute screening, and see if hypnosis is right for you:  (647) 210-8842.

Here’s to many more anniversaries!

Hypnosis For Relationship Issues

 

“Investing in your own growth and self-development isn’t selfish, it’s self-care.”

Inner Selves vs Outer Appearance

It amazes me how so many people will spend so much time and money investing in their outer appearance, but won’t spend a lot working on their inner selves, and their relationships. Almost all of us would find benefit in investing in our emotional well-being, and therefore, in turn, our relationships would most certainly improve. If you take care of yourself first, you are then in a better place to be a better partner.

With hypnosis, I help people work on themselves for a variety of issues. We often have things in our lives that get in the way. Smoking or excessive weight gain, for instance, can be a major problem that can affect your relationship, as many complain that their partners are not happy with the smell/look of them, etc.  More to the point, when we are not satisfied with ourselves and have stress, it can affect our relationships.

How Hypnosis Helps

Using hypnosis to help with your relationships is not like what you see in the movies or on television. I’m not going to put you in a “trance” and you can suddenly be the next Romeo or anything like that. Rather, many of my clients who come to see me for relationship issues, do so because they are stuck in a bad relationship, or are having trouble building a new one. It’s often easier to find faults in others, then to be introspective. While their partner may be part of the issue, some clients don’t often realize that a large part of the problem is within them. We become stuck.

Why suffer from the stress and anxiety associated with a bad relationship?

Invest in yourself. Learn to let go, develop techniques to help establish boundaries, and improve your overall health of relating. A healthy relationship starts with you. Hypnosis can be an incredible way to improve in so many areas of your life and help you to learn to take any negative thoughts and reframe them into positive ones.

I offer a free screening to every client to determine whether hypnosis is going to work for them, and also if they are ready for hypnosis. Plus I have an amazing sale on right now! You can get $100.00 off any hypnosis program you sign up for. Just be sure to mention the code:  “ITSPOSSIBLE2018” when booking to take advantage of the offer.

Hypnosis can help you take control of your own life, and help you to improve your relationships! Call now for your free 30-40 minute screening, and see if hypnosis is right for you:  (647) 210-8842

Hypnosis For Public Speaking

“According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.” – Jerry Seinfeld

Public Speaking Is Very Common

The above is a very funny quote, but unfortunately the fear of speaking in public is more common that you may think. It is estimated that around 75% of people experience some form of anxiety when they speak in public. Often the real trouble starts hours, days and even weeks before the actual event. This leads to a feeling of fear that can become so strong, that one may even withdraw from doing the actual speech.

How Hypnosis Can Help

Fear of public speaking can be a very big problem if your job is dependent on your presenting and speaking in front of clients or staff. But what if you were so scared to talk in front of a crowd at a family function, that you were nervous to show up for the party?

I had one such instance with a client who came to me because her mother’s 70th birthday was approaching in a few weeks, and she knew that she was going to have to say something in front of the estimated 75 guests. She was so upset and terrified, and wasn’t sure how she was going to pull it off. Results of course do vary with individuals, but in her case, through her work with hypnosis, she was able to deliver the speech without a problem. She told me afterwards that she felt so good that she just wanted to keep speaking. She was overjoyed that her mother received a “heartwarming, clear sweet speech”.

Many have various amounts of stress, anxiety, and fear and also a lack of self-confidence when it comes to public speaking. Hypnosis can be a very effective way to help overcome the fear of public speaking, and get you on the road to rebuilding your confidence. Instead of being afraid, you can learn to take those negative thoughts and reframe them into positive ones. The hypnosis works by helping to remove your undesirable subconscious messages that cause your fears, so you feel more relaxed and in the moment.

Can I Be Hypnotized?

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t. You’re right.”  – Henry Ford

Hypnosis 101

Hypnosis is real. However it is not what you’ve seen on TV and in the movies. There is no “mind control” or anything absurd like that. As a hypnotist, I cannot make you quack like a duck, reveal secrets, give me your money, or do anything against your will. While you are hypnotized, you have a higher level of concentration and focus on your inner thoughts. You will only do and say what you want to do and say.

I perform a free screening and consultation with every client, just to see if hypnosis is will work for them and if they can be hypnotized. Many clients who come to see me, are not sure whether or not they will be hypnotized and if they can accomplish their goal. I explain to them that hypnosis can be a very effective tool whether their goal is to:

  • lose weight
  • quit smoking
  • break a habit
  • build confidence
  • reduce their stress
  • get over a fear

Results

Generally speaking, virtually anyone can achieve successful results using hypnosis. All hypnosis, whether it is accomplished with the aid of a hypnotist or not, is self-hypnosis. However in order for hypnosis to be effective, there must be a belief and expectation that it is going to work.

So only you can decide to let go, and allow yourself to be hypnotized. But the more that you let go, relax and follow instructions, the better chance you have of hypnosis working, and the more beneficial experience it will be for you.

In addition, we have an incredible sale on right now! You can get $100.00 off any hypnosis program you sign up for. Just be sure to mention the code:  “” when booking to take advantage of the offer.

FORMING GOOD HABITS

“Breaking old habits and forming new ones always takes time, but it is WORTH it in the end.”  – Joyce Meyer

We all have habits that we would like to break. These can range from nail biting, teeth grinding, knuckle cracking, skin picking, swearing, overeating, smoking, etc. These bad behavior patterns can develop unconsciously, and then seemingly infiltrate all areas of our lives, eventually driving us crazy with each tick, chew, or smoke.

The question many ask is how do you form good habits? The first step is to break the bad habit. The challenge that many encounter when trying to do this is the simple fact that habits just don’t respond to commands. You cannot take a deep breath, gather all of your willpower, and say to yourself, for example, “I will not bite my nails any longer!”, and then expect to stop. I mean, you may stop temporarily, but in a short time, chances are you will find that you’ve started doing the bad habit again.

So what to do?

My clients have found that hypnosis very effective in helping to break past unwanted behaviors, and to start forming good habits. By using hypnosis, we get right to the crux of the negative habit, which is in the unconscious mind. Of course you do need to have willpower to help motivate you to deal with your unwanted behaviors, but what is really required is a “mindset change” to be finished with the habits. Hypnosis helps with this, and yes if you are ready, then it truly works!

I offer a free screening to see if hypnosis will work for you! If you would like more information about any of our programs including getting rid of your bad habits and forming good ones, please contact us to book your free screening at (647) 210-8842.

Empowerment To Take Control of Your Life

As we approach the end of the year, we begin to reflect as our thoughts turn to many things, including changes that we can make in our lives. We all have our own strengths, weaknesses, and goals.

Before we can take control of our lives, understand that we learn the best when times are bad, not when times are good. 

The first step that must be taken before you make a change, is the belief that you deserve the best, are able to take control of your destiny and know what you want. For many, this means standing in your own power, and centering yourself.

As a hypnotist, it is my job to guide my clients and inspire them to take control. My clients who are successful achieving their goals with the help of hypnosis, are the ones who empower themselves to truly take control of their lives. They have learned to put out positive self-talk and self-worth. They use words like “I will do” and “I can do”. Most importantly, they build more confidence as they move forward because of their empowerment.

If you believe you deserve it, then you will find a way to do it—it’s truly amazing—and hypnosis is an amazing way to help facilitate changes in your life!

So are you ready to empower yourself to take control of your life?

If you are, and you would like to see if hypnosis is right for you, please call us now for your free consultation: (647) 210-8842.

What Do You Wish To Achieve And How Hypnosis Can Help

Start small, get the ball rolling, and just move forward to achieve the goal that you want.

Question: Do you know what the best thing about procrastination is?

Answer:  It always gives you something to do tomorrow.

Goals

We all have them. Some are big. Some are small. Some are short-term Some are long-term.

Often we feel that we are just coasting along with life, never really accomplishing what we want. We procrastinate, and don’t reach our full potential. The most amazing part is that while many will tell you what they don’t want in their life, they rarely can properly articulate what they DO want. If you keep focusing on what you don’t want, you actually will end up heading in that direction and attracting the negative energy.

As a driving instructor taught me about winter driving:  “If you’re in a skid, stop looking where you don’t want to go (i.e. the rapidly approaching snow bank). Instead keep looking to where you WANT to go, and steer in that direction.”

So the first thing to do when you want to achieve something is figure out what you really want. Make sure that your goals are realistic. If you try to set a goal that you know deep down is hopelessly not achievable, you will set yourself up for failure and disappointment. This could cause you undue stress and anxiety.

Try instead to aim for smaller and realistic goals such as:

-deciding to eat healthy snacks instead of junk.

-finding the time take a brisk 20 minute walk every 2 days.

-starting the search for a new job that will bring you more satisfaction.

-committing to spending more time each week with your family.

If you would like to make some changes to help you get what you want and achieve your goals, it is important to prepare and as well make plans for what you want. The idea is that you want to start small, get the ball rolling, and just move forward to achieve the goal that you want.

You have made the decision to go for your goal

Congratulations on taking a step that many never will, because they often aren’t ready to make choices to create change in their lives. After you’ve made the decision that you want to do something, hypnosis is a great way to help you achieve your goal. I’ve had many clients who have been successful at doing this.

Goal setting with hypnosis

The action of setting a goal is a very meaningful and powerful process towards your development and to help you evolve. Hypnosis allows you to get your subconscious engaged and in-sync with your conscious goals. By using hypnosis, you can also learn to relax and let go. You can then center yourself, and learn to cut out the “noise”, so that you can expand your imagination and thought process so you can better focus on what you want to achieve.

Hypnosis can help you take control of your own life! Why not see if hypnosis will work for you, motivate yourself, and help achieve your goals? Call now for your free 30-40 minute screening, and see if hypnosis is right for you:  (647) 210-8842

Positive Mindset

I am in charge of how I feel and today I choose happiness.” ~ Likainen Parketti

I really love this quote for many reasons; there is so much truth to it. One topic that I talk about in my speaking engagements is centered on the idea of “attitude”. Do you realize that only thing we truly have control over in our lives, is our attitude? We often get so stressed and feel anxiety over things that we have no influence over. While we cannot control how someone else acts towards us, we can control what we do when that energy gets to us. Will we absorb it? Deflect it? Step out of the way and let it go past us?…Simply put, we have the choice of what to do, how to handle it, and how we want our attitude to be.

It’s been said that when things are going really poorly, or you’re in a bad state, you should take a moment and be grateful for something. I know that can be challenging when things are bad, but finding gratitude in something (it can be as simple as that the sun is shining, or that you got up this morning breathing and alive) can be very beneficial in setting a positive mindset.

Hypnosis can be a very effective way to help get into a positive mindset. Many clients come to see me for stress, confidence and anxiety issues. One of the things I teach them is to change their way of thinking, and to be more mindful of their thoughts so that they approach situations and ideas in a more positive way.

But the one thing that is evident in all cases, is that you have to CHOOSE to have a positive mindset…or at least in the case of a new hypnosis client—choose to be OPEN to the idea of learning how to change your mindset.

Hypnosis can help you change your mindset, so that you can go through life with a more positive attitude. Call now for your free 30-40 minute screening, and see if hypnosis is right for you:  (647) 210-8842.

PERFORMANCE ANXIETY

“Performance Anxiety” contributes to both Erectile Dysfunction and Premature Ejaculation

The desire to improve your performance can be about more than just getting better grades, or doing better on the golf course and in the sports arena. Many men suffer from performance issues in the bedroom, and this takes the form of Erectile Dysfunction (ED) and Premature Ejaculation (PE).

Erectile Dysfunction and Premature Ejaculation have multiple causes, both physical and psychological. They are frustrating conditions that affect many men, and may also disturb their sexual partners and relationships. Occasional episodes of ED or PE are normal, but persistent symptoms often require treatment. Whether your issue is physiological or psychological…Hypnosis may be your answer!

“Performance Anxiety” contributes to both ED and PE, and both of these issues may lead to a vicious cycle where anxiety produces dysfunction, and dysfunction causes further anxiety.

For instance, one thing that I find consistent with all of my ED clients, is that if they are not mentally “in the game” while with their partner, then even their prescribed meds won’t help them. However when they learn to relax, go with the flow, and resist overthinking every issue, their ability to perform more successfully increases. They are able to see first-hand how effectively taking control and using hypnosis can help them with the intimate part of their lives.  “In a study published in 2003 in the British Journal of Urology International, hypnotherapy helped to improve the sexual function of men with non-organic impotence at a rate of 80%. Hypnotherapy outperformed both testosterone (60%) and trazodone (67%).” (www.edguidance.com).

With hypnosis, you can learn the following techniques to help with your sexual difficulties:

• Letting go of stress & anxiety, both outside of and within a sexual situation

• Building your inner confidence

• Living in the moment

In addition, by using other hypnosis strategies, we can also help you to lose weight and quit smoking—both major contributing factors to Erectile Dysfunction.

We offer a FREE, no-obligation screening session to see if hypnosis will work for you.  Call us NOW at (647) 210-8842 for your no-cost consultation, and get your sex life back on track!
