Consulting Hypnotists use hypnosis, which is a trance-like state of focus and concentration. This trance-like state is similar to being completely absorbed in a book, movie, music, or even one's own thoughts or meditations. In this state, clients can turn their attention completely inward to find and utilize the natural resources deep within themselves to help them make changes or regain control in certain areas of their lives.
Hypnosis can be an adjunct form of therapy, used along with other forms of psychological or medical treatment. Hypnosis can be used to treat anxiety, phobias, substance abuse, tobacco use, sexual dysfunction, undesirable spontaneous behaviors, and bad habits. Hypnosis can help improve sleep, learning disorders, communication, and relationship issues. Hypnosis can aid in pain management and help resolve medical conditions such as digestive disorders, skin issues, and gastrointestinal side effects of pregnancy and chemotherapy. Dentists can also use hypnosis to help patients control their fears or treat teeth grinding and other oral conditions. The list of issues hypnosis can assist with is almost endless.
