* How can Hypnotherapy help me?

Hypnotherapy has become a valuable therapeutic tool in helping people manage stress and anxiety, weight loss, overcome annoying phobias and fears, stop smoking, and treat compulsive behavior such as overeating and nail biting. In the area of general self improvement, hypnotherapy can improve study habits, enhance sports performance, relieve physical symptoms and much more. Hypnosis works with the unconscious mind (90% of your mind) while it bypasses the critical conscious mind.  *Because people are all different, as with all therapeutic tools, results may vary.   Therefore for best results, your session will be customized for your needs and individual situation.

* What is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is the ultimate means of heightening motivation by programming the subconscious mind to join in the cooperation of your conscious desires.

Hypnosis, which has been used for hundreds of years and long-recognized by the medical field, is a highly effective science and method for you to create changes in your life. Using hypnosis to induce a state of increased concentration, the hypnotherapist communicates with your unconscious mind. During this process you will feel relaxed and you will hear and remember everything that is said. Your hypnotist, Vrisayda, through hypnosis will provide the most positive psychological climate in which you can accept new and better behaviors and accomplish your goals.

Hypnosis is not a state of sleep, but a natural state of mind that can produce extraordinary levels of relaxation of mind, body and emotions. The principles and theories upon which hypnotherapy is based are accessing and utilizing the power of one’s inner resources. Hypnosis can transcend the critical, analytical level of mind, and facilitate the acceptance of suggestions, directions and instructions desired by the Client. You can never be made to do anything you do not want to do!

The therapeutic use of Hypnosis can also elicit information and insights from the inner mind–for example, forensic hypnosis is now employed by law enforcement to retrieve memories from potential witnesses and victims. The hypnotherapist utilizes interviews, discussion and hypnotic methods dealing with underlying issues whenever appropriate, with the goal of achieving effective and lasting results.

  1. Hypnosis: Hypnosis is a highly effective science and method for the client to create changes in his life.  Hypnotherapy provides a positive psychological climate in which the client can accomplish his goals.  Hypnosis has long been recognized in the medical field and has become a valuable therapeutic tool.  Hypnosis is a means of communication between the conscious mind and subconscious mind.  It is often used in the area of pain management and stress management and is often recommended to control compulsive behavior (weight loss & stop smoking), break self-destructive habits and overcome paralyzing phobias.

  1. NLP:  NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming: “neuro” referring to the nervous system, through which all our experiences must be mediated, “linguistic” referring to language, both verbal and non-verbal, i.e. the different kinds of communications which our neurology must respond to, and “programming” referring to the human ability to organize knowledge and experiences into goal oriented plans or procedures (programs). We organize our programs by systematically communicating to ourselves and others. Since much of this occurs outside of our awareness, NLP studies both our conscious and unconscious ways of communicating and programming. The term “programming” also indicates that both our consciously re-producible behaviors as well as many of our habitual (usually unconscious) ones, have been “programmed” into our neurology, i.e. they have been learned, and therefore, most importantly, are modifiable.

 

These services are not licensed by the state.  These services are non-diagnostic and are complementary to the healing arts services that are licensed by the state of California.  The California State Legislature has determined that state licensing may not be conferred upon an occupational group for purposes of status or prestige.  The primary purpose of licensing laws for legally defined Healing Arts and Mental Health professionals is to protect public health and safety.  Accordingly, Hypnotherapists are not issued licenses by the Sate Governmental Agency to engage in their professional services.  The services do not include the practice of medicine or psychology or any other licensed healing art, since I am not a licensed physician.

Client is willing to be guided through relaxation, visual imagery, creative visualization, hypnosis, and stress reduction processes and techniques for the purpose of vocational or avocational self-improvement.  Client understands that the hypnosis he/she is receiving is not a substitute for normal medical care and has been advised to discuss this hypnosis with any doctor who is taking care of him/her now or in the future.  Additionally, client should continue any present medical treatment and consult a medical doctor for treatment of any new or old illnesses.
