An Introduction to Hypnotherapy
Hypnotherapy has been used to treat a wide variety of physical and mental difficulties over the centuries and yet most people know very little about what it actually is. During hypnotherapy, the therapist verbally guides the participant into a state of deep relaxation so that the full power of his or her subconscious imagination can be directed toward creating positive change. Physical relaxation through hypnotherapy can help to reduce worry, stress, insomnia, and that common state of “overly busy mind.”
In this session participants will learn about the practice of hypnotherapy and Christine will guide the group in experiencing a brief hypnosis for relaxation. Participants will learn about what hypnosis is and how it can be used for creating change. Participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions about the practice of hypnosis and hypnotherapy.
