When most people think of hypnotherapy, they believe they are going to be put to sleep and the hypnotherapist will tell their mind what to do.
Hypnotherapy is not sleep at all. The client remains awake and aware throughout the session, and is even able to bring themselves out of hypnosis at any time. This is because the trance state is much different than sleep. The hypnotherapist merely guides the client to shift their focus of attention from the outside environment and conscious thought, to a single idea, emotion, or sensation that is causing problems for the client.
In this state of intense mental focus, clients are able to use imagery and their subconscious mind to quickly and easily change negative thoughts into healthy and positive beliefs, change habits, resolve issues surrounding emotions, even re-program unconscious physical reactions to stimuli.

Anger has many faces; sometimes it is explosive after building and building, for others it is a constant gnawing feeling.
However your anger is being expressed, it leads to significant life difficulties in failed relationships, difficulties at work and even arrest and conviction.
Many times clients are not even aware that they have an anger problem until a spouse or significant other issues an ultimatum or they are referred by their attorney or the court for counseling. It may seem that the things that trigger your anger are logical and justified, however, the expression of your anger is often "over the top".
This anger often has nothing to do with those it is directed toward, but rather, is the result of an unresolved injustice, disappointment or hurt from the past that was long ago repressed.
Many clients find relief of their anger in only one session!
If anger is ruining the quality of your life and relationships, hypnosis can help by allowing you to finally resolve that issue once and for all. Clients often report afterwards that things that used to cause them to blow up or fume and boil are simply minor annoyances or distractions after hypnosis sessions!
A Better You! is approved by the Cochise County District Attorney for court-ordered Anger Management counseling in only 4 sessions, rather than 16 hours of non-hypnosis counseling.
Anxiety/Panic, Obsessive/Compulsive and Post Traumatic Stress Disorders are all similar in that the subconscious mind perceives a threat to your health or safety and reacts by sending signals to the brain that stimulate a response in the body.
For clients experiencing Anxiety Disorder or Panic Attacks this creates very uncomfortable emotional and physical reactions that may last from minutes to days or even months.
For clients experiencing PTSD, this may create flashbacks to the traumatic event so that you relive the bad experience and/or feelings over and over and over, without ever resolving the outcome.
For clients experiencing OCD the subconscious mind reacts by sending messages to the conscious mind that certain behaviors or avoidance of places, things, numbers, etc. will relieve the anxiety. In other words, the behaviors associated with OCD are an attempt to relieve a subconscious anxiety.
How does Hypnotherapy help?
Unlike traditional talk therapy, hypnotherapy works with the subconscious mind (which initiates the response), instead of the conscious mind (which only observes the response and is often confused by it). And unlike medications, hypnotherapy addresses the source of the problem, rather than the symptoms of the problem.
Hypnotherapy can significantly decrease the frequency, severity and duration of these experiences, and may very well resolve them altogether.
Every client has his or her own experiences that lead to the dis-ease. Hypnotherapy gently allows the client to resolve the feelings that lead to unwanted behaviors and physical responses. The hypnotherapist does not judge the reason or seek to minimize it; clearly it is important to you if it is creating a disturbance in your life. The goal of hypnotherapy is to guide the subconscious into gently resolving the issue naturally so that the you can be completely and permanently free of the need to react to those issues.
Fears and Phobias
Are "irrational" fears holding you back and preventing you from enjoying life to its fullest?
Fears and phobias come in many shapes and sizes: perhaps you have a paralyzing fear of heights, are unable to travel on an airplane, have difficulty leaving the house or being in public places long enough to complete your shopping or errands.
Hypnosis helps you to relieve the fear behind the fear.
Like anxiety, fears and phobias are related to a subconscious belief or perception that your life is gravely endangered and creates a physical reaction of extreme 'fight, flight or freeze' when it is triggered.
The subconscious belief or perception can very easily be resolved, often in only one to two sessions, allowing you to quickly be able to enjoy your life again!
If you can imagine it, you CAN achieve it!
