If you went to the county fair as a child you may have seen stage hypnosis shows that often feel like a circus freak show. People doing silly antics on the stage (e.g. clucking like a chicken), but that is not what hypnosis is really about. Hypnosis is nothing to be afraid of … we hypnotize ourselves without even realizing it all the time … and it is a powerful tool to help us tap into our sub-conscious mind. Instead of trying to use consciousness to fix the sub-conscious brain, why not go right to the source. We can spend years in talk therapy, or we can tap directly into our sub-conscious and get quicker results. In this episode we explain the process and benefits of hypnosis from a hypnotherapist and patient point of view.
