Individuals: In my therapy with clients, I am very directive and interactive, asking questions, looking for behavioral patterns, and exploring connections between historical events and current issues. I encourage people to take responsibility for their lives while working on the psychological blocks that prevent change.
Give the ones you love wings to fly, roots to come back, and reasons to stay. - Dalai Lama
Couples: Couples come to therapy for many reasons, but communication is ultimately the overarching issue. Initially I focus on helping couples hear one another. As this occurs, the probability of understanding the other’s position increases. Healing of the relationship is then possible.
Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy: Without exception, children unconsciously form beliefs about who they are and in response, personal defenses are created to protect against the beliefs that are wounding. Behaviors are shaped in response, often maladaptive, limiting, or destructive.
The Director of the Wellness Institute where I have studied for ten years states: “The work we do in Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy offers individuals the opportunity to examine any of their unconscious beliefs that may be holding them back from living wholeheartedly. Until these parts of you are allowed to come to life, you have not realized the self, your true, authentic self.” Our early programing prevents healing and growth and the ability to establish a new, current template.
Through Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy, new possibilities enter into conscious awareness as pain, grief, hurt, and trauma are resolved. Life opens to an expanded perspective that acknowledges the very real possibility of choosing to live one’s unrealized life.
Hypnotherapy is a very effective way of addressing addictions, eating disorders, and self-destructive behaviors in general. All of these behaviors emerge from the need to numb or deal with the anxiety and depression connected with self-defeating thoughts and beliefs created during childhood.
Whenever we give up, leave behind, and forget too much, there is always the danger that the things we have neglected will return with added force...Had I left those images hidden in the emotions, I might have been torn to pieces by them. - Carl Jung
