Psychiatrists deal with the conscious mind, while hypnotherapy deals with the subconscious mind, which is a faster form of therapy because it deals with the root of the issue that needs to be resolved. Gayle often works directly with psychiatrist/psychologist/social workers, etc.
During hypnosis, the body and conscious mind are in a relaxed, natural state while the subconsious mind remains awake and receptive to positive suggestion. Hypnosis is the best means to heighten motivation by directing the attention span to focus on one area.
How Hypnosis Works
Hypnosis is an altered state of awareness that accesses the subconscious mind to agree with what the conscious desires through positive suggestion.
It helps the client retrain thoughts and feelings so that they can understand why they think, feel and act the way that they do.
It allows for direct communication with the subconscious mind.
Positive suggestions are given to the subconscious mind to make effective change.
Negative beliefs and past experiences can be re-programmed. The result being a positive change; physically and emotionally.
Limitations are only made by the clients willingness to make those changes.
Who Is In Control?
Hypnosis is NOT mind control. The client can still think and make decisions and is always in control. The hypnotherapist is there only to reinforce the clients goals through positive suggestion. You will remember everything that happens!
Can Anybody Be Hypnotized?
Anybody that is willing can be hypnotized! The depth of hypnosis varies from each individual. Many people enter the deeper levels easily and others get better with practice, with the reinforcement from the CD/tape that Gayle provides.
What Does Hypnosis Feel Like?
Hypnosis is very peaceful and relaxing. You are completely aware of what is happening around you.
Is Hypnosis Recognized by Medical Professional
Absolutely! The American Medical Association (AMA) and the American Psychiatrist Association has approved hypnotherapy for use by licensed professionals as a viable therapeutic tool.
Hypnosis is a supplement to standard health care. It is not a substitute for a licensed professional's advice, procedures or medicines.
