“As a National Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist (NBCCH) I can combine hypnosis with other psychotherapy and counselling techniques to benefit individuals. The techniques used will depend on the concerns the individual is seeking help for”.
What is Hypnotherapy and how does it work?
Hypnotherapy addresses an individual’s subconscious mind, using the power of suggestion. A hypnotherapist uses hypnosis to give beneficial suggestions to help an individual bring about the change they desire. Hypnosis is a different state of consciousness from being awake or asleep, and many people compare the deep, relaxed state of hypnosis to daydreaming.
Will hypnotherapy work for me?
According to the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH), 85% of people will respond to clinical hypnotherapy. Some individuals are more likely to respond to hypnotherapy than others and having confidence in the technique helps. Change from hypnotherapy and any other therapeutic intervention is possible when an individual is personally motivated to change.
Can you be hypnotized to do something against your will? Is hypnotherapy safe?
It is important to recognise that it is not possible to hypnotize an individual against their will, and even if an individual is hypnotized, they can reject any suggestion that is not beneficial to them. Hypnotherapy is therefore natural and safe, with no harmful side effects.
What can Hypnotherapy treat?
Hypnotherapy can treat a variety of problems including stop smoking, weight loss, anxiety and depression.
What is the difference between and a NBCCH and a Certified Hypnotherapist (CHT)?
As a NBCCH, I can treat any concerns, including mental health. I can also use your health insurance benefits. A CHT cannot treat any mental health issues and cannot treat in the state of NJ without a doctor’s note.
