How Hypnosis Works

Using analytical hypnosis to address issues, such as: weight loss, smoking, depression, childbirth, stress, sports performance, confidence, habits, cravings, and fears, is about behavior modification. There is a developed behavior that is guiding your automatic reactions to events.

These reactions are based on your previous experience. When you are trying to change a behavior, it can be a very real struggle as your conscious mind attempts to change what your subconscious mind already has in place. You can compare it to the mindless way you may have trained yourself to lock the door when you get in the car. At first it takes conscious effort. Eventually it becomes automatic, to the point that you may not even know if you locked it or not without checking. Once that simple habit is in place, changing it is possible with some effort and repetition.

A habit can become stronger and more complex when you apply emotions and time. If someone has a strong fear about car doors being unlocked, they probably took on that fear at some fearful time in the past. It could have been someone's innocent statement about car-jackings, a horror movie or a personal fearful moment. Any of those situations have the potential to create a fear behavior. The emotional content of this habit makes changing that behavior more involved. The simple fact that our mind does create behaviors means that our mind can change them, if we understand how.

Hypnosis has shown to be a rapid way to change behaviors, especially with modern hypnosis techniques. When using the very same principles behind our natural behavior creation, we can easily quit old habits as well as create new ones.

How Can Hypnosis Help You?


Weight Loss (and Management):

End your fight for control of your food choices, portions, snacking, and exercise. Changing your eating behavior with hypnosis allows you to make educated choices, free from inner conflict, will result in a healthy weight loss and improved life style.

Quit Smoking:

You know you want to quit smoking at the very same time a part of you wants to continue. How much easier would it be to stop smoking if you had the right tools for the job?

Sports Improvement:

Learn how to teach your body to respond with its full athletic potential. Hypnosis increases the power of creative visualization. Many clients have improved their game with a single hypnosis session. This will often involve visualization to create muscle memory. Then, formal hypnosis to boost the expectation of success and reduce any fear of failure.

Depression, Anxiety and Grief:

You know life should feel better, but it isn't. It can be different. Depression and grief can be our minds' natural reaction to events. Hypnosis can help a person's mind deal with these memories of sadness, loss, fear and anxiety, to actually feel freedom from them.

Pain Management:

Repeated clinical studies show the sensation of pain is a function of your cortex and is based off of previous experience and expectations. Hypnosis makes use of this basic principle to reduce pain and help you manage your sense of well-being.

Stress and Anxiety:

Much of our stress can be attributed to our learned behaviors in reacting to stress triggers. Stress can be a sense of feeling anxiety, fear, nervousness and being overwhelmed. Addressing these learned behaviors reduces the amount of stress and anxiety we experience. The remaining situational stress can then be more comfortably managed with self-hypnosis techniques.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome:

Irritable Bowel Syndrome, IBS, is estimated to affect up to 20% of the population in the U.S., of those affected, 67% are women. By comparison, only 9.5% of people are affected by depression and 7% by diabetes. The symptoms of IBS have shown to respond favorably to hypnosis techniques. Stabilizing a person's emotional state, such as stress, anger, and worry, is a large part of the process.


Hypnosis can be very helpful when you want to recover memories. Whether you want to find your lost keys or want to remember a past event. While hypnosis is great for recall, it is important to understand how the mind deals with memories. Memories are fluid and always subjective. You remember things through the perspective you had at the time of the experience. Memories are not always factual. Sometimes they are symbolic or a mixture of fact and symbolism. When working with memories, you need a hypnotist experienced in this work.


I believe that self-hypnosis is the basis for any strong hypnosis session when wanting long-term results. I teach a self-hypnosis rapid induction as a part of my normal session. The self-hypnosis, when used at home, is a practical way for people to reinforce the work in our sessions. This rapid induction is also used in my condensed self-hypnosis reinforcement audios.


Neurolinguistic Programming.  

NLP is a communication approach that connects language and behavioral pattern that we may have learned through direct experience in a specific way to help people gain their desired goals.  

The creators of NLP have used this process to affect a change in phobias, depression, habits, trauma reactions, allergy and knee jerk responses.  Once the new pattern has been adopted, it is difficult to bring the unwanted behavior back!  

NLP studies patterns of excellence used by exceptional people and allows us to adopt their patterns to achieve similar results.  

NLP can be used by those that hypnosis is not an option for as a stand alone option, more often though, it is used as a language pattern or process that assists clients in hypnosis in gaining their desired results quickly and easily.

I work with normal people to help with normal problems in daily living. I do not independently work with medical or mental disease and I do not "diagnose", "treat" or "prescribe."    I may work with issues related to a medical or health disorder but only on referral from a properly licensed health care professional.

Hypnotism is the independent use of the hypnotic arts and sciences to help clients inculcate positive thinking and the capacity for self-hypnosis. Hypnotists do not do Psychotherapy; they Guide.

Clients do not have Disorders; they may have Problems, Challenges or Issues though. 

I do not Diagnose clients; I help clients do Goal-Setting regarding Problems, Challenges or Issues. 

I do not Treat clients; I hold Sessions at which I Induct a client into a Self-Hypnotic State.

The Self-Hypnotic State is a state of relaxed concentration which anyone can enter naturally. Hypnotists provide their clients with instruction in how to enter this natural state more easily and effectively. 

I do not Prescribe  or suggest solutions; I may Suggest ways for clients to achieve their Goals while the client is in a Self-Hypnotic State.

Suggestion is the artful use of imagination to increase a client’s enthusiasm for self improvement using Self-Help Techniques.

Self-Help Techniques are thinking strategies used by normally-functioning people to remind themselves of improvements they wish to make in their lives. Such strategies are taught by Hypnotists using Suggestion while the client is in the Self-Hypnotic State.

A common Self-Help Technique is a Regression. As used by a Hypnotist, a Regression is a review of significant or remarkable events by the client with the Hypnotist serving as a Guide.
