Hypnosis is grounded on the belief that people (including children and teens) have many more strengths and abilities than they consciously recognize. In our normal waking state it is very difficult, if not impossible, to access the unconscious or “inner mind.” The process of hypnosis creates the opportunity to tap into hidden strengths which we all possess. Through hypnosis one can make truly positive changes in our emotional, cognitive (thinking), physical and behavioral states.
During hypnosis one is fully awake and aware of their surroundings.
Hypnosis is neither mysterious not magical (as it is often portrayed in cartoons and movies).
Clients actually experience greater mastery and control as they learn self-hypnosis; hypnosis is NOT a form of “mind control”.
