Hypnosis – Secrets Revealed by a Therapist

hypnotherapylosangelescaI am Ava Evans and when I see a new client we speak about what hypnosis really means. People often have distorted and incorrect information about hypnosis and hypnotherapy and how it can help to resolve their fears, stresses, habits and more. Thoroughly explaining what hypnosis is and is not allows the client to not only understand but enjoy the experience of wonderful relaxation and calm as well as learning new ways of dealing with their life challenges.

The wonderful advantages of hypnotherapy are the abilities to soothe, calm and relax as we access the power of the subconscious mind. In using hypnosis we are involving the most powerful part of the mind, the subconscious, as well as working with the conscious mind to recognize and become more aware and mindful in addressing our problems. Working this way usually enables you to resolve issues more quickly as you are involving the whole mind, rather than just the conscious part of the mind.

The conscious part of the mind is logic, reason and will, which we theorize to be about 12% of the mind. You no doubt have had the experience of your conscious mind saying something like “I really should exercise and eat healthy,” while your subconscious is answering something like,” but I had a tough day and I really want a hamburger and fries or ice cream or chocolate”. Unfortunately the subconscious generally wins, even though you need to lose a few pounds because it is a whopping 88% of the mind.

The subconscious mind being the seat of power is where all the old patterns, fears, negative and positive behaviors reside. We refer to them as knowns because they are familiar and comfortable, even though these problems may not feel comfortable, on some level they are. We refer to these patterns and knowns in the subconscious as your life script and using hypnosis allows us to make those changes more effectively and easily.

So this is how I help my clients with hypnosis in Los Angeles and other parts of the world. Although I practice hypnosis in Los Angeles, I also do phone appointments and Skype appointments with clients living in other cities and countries.
