As a certified hypnotherapist, it will appear biased if I begin listing all of the benefits of hypnotherapy. Instead, I will list links that support hypnotherapy.
While many counselors take a weekend workshop to learn therapy, I devoted almost two years to hypnotherapy, trauma, smoking cessation, handwriting analysis, child trauma, PTSD, and more. I have also taken many certifications including HeartMath and Radical Forgiveness to more readily be present to help clients through their own self-healing.
Mindset is everything and your esteem and worth are a compass that navigates you through your life (as I’ve said for years) – yet, we often forget that influence of society is a hypnotic effect unto itself. Trauma, fear, anger, relationships – these all begin and end, in mindset. What happens in between, is up to you.
Note that in the Penn blog, I do not know of anyone nor do I use, a swinging watch in my practice; I guess stock photos are hard to come by for hypnotherapy :/
The Cleveland Clinic
The Mayo Clinic
If you have any questions about hypnotherapy I would love to explore this with you, if this might be right for you.
Note that if you feel self-harm or that you might harm someone else, hypnotherapy is definitely not right for you at this time – and you must see a clinic or contact 911 immediately.
