Hypnosis is a state of human consciousness involving focused attention and reduced peripheral awareness and an enhanced capacity to respond to suggestion.
During hypnosis, a person is said to have heightened focus and concentration. The person can concentrate intensely on a specific thought or memory, while blocking out sources of distraction. Hypnotized subjects are said to show an increased response to suggestions. Hypnosis is usually induced by a procedure known as a hypnotic induction involving a series of preliminary instructions and suggestion.
In my practice I have used hypnosis very successfully to aid people with the following concerns:
Regression TherapyRegression can be used to help recall events from from any point of your lifetime, as well as Past Lives.
Soul RegressionThis process takes you back to the life between lives where you exist as a Soul Being.
Fears and PhobiasHaving a phobia doesn't mean you are crazy, it simply means that a fear has become irrational! It also helps to know that phobias are highly manageable and can be completely eliminated through hypnosis.
Smoking CessationNicotine addiction is deeply rooted in the subconscious mind. Once the root is uncovered the habit can be stopped.
Pain ManagementHypnosis is an astonishingly effective way of reducing – and even removing – pain responses.
Relaxation and InsomniaHypnosis is a complementary therapy involving deep relaxation and focused attention, and is a very effective treatment for insomnia.
Weight LossEnhance your ability to lose weight easily. Reduce anxiety, tension and stress along with excess weight.
Myths About Hypnotherapy
"People often fear that being hypnotized will make them lose control, surrender their will, and result in their being dominated, but a hypnotic state is not the same thing as gullibility or weakness. Many people base their assumptions about hypnotism on stage acts but fail to take into account that stage hypnotists screen their volunteers to select those who are cooperative, with possible exhibitionist tendencies, as well as responsive to hypnosis. Stage acts help create a myth about hypnosis which discourages people from seeking legitimate hypnotherapy.
Another myth about hypnosis is that people lose consciousness and have amnesia. A small percentage of subjects, who go into very deep levels of trance will fit this stereotype and have spontaneous amnesia. The majority of people remember everything that occurs in hypnosis. This is beneficial, because the most of what we want to accomplish in hypnosis may be done in a medium depth trance, where people tend to remember everything.
In hypnosis, the patient is not under the control of the hypnotist. Hypnosis is not something imposed on people, but something they do for themselves. A hypnotist simply serves as a facilitator to guide them."

The most wonderful experience. I received both a massage and hypnotherapy session with Sydney and I left both feeling completely satisfied. Skeptical about hypnotherapy, hearing all the negative opinions of it, how it's voodoo and against some's religion....but let me tell you, nothing but positive is what I received and I can not wait for my next session. Sydney is a warm spirit, kind and I'm glad to have crossed paths with her.
