Hypnosis is a relaxed trance state, similar to having a dream, where you experience heightened awareness, higher levels of concentration, and focused attention. In fact, you've probably already experienced this state in your everyday life, like when you daydream, or completely immerse yourself in a task, losing all track of time in the process, or arriving at a destination without fully remembering driving there. This is exactly how clinical hypnosis works - your body and mind are relaxed, while the subconscious mind remains alert and open to suggestion or questioning.
Gina Eaton, LCSW, offers hypnotherapy as a treatment for mental health issues. This is a form of psychotherapy performed while the patient is under hypnosis. This treatment can be used to bring about subconscious change by helping to "reprogram" your emotional attitudes, behaviors, and perceptions. Hypnotherapy is a valuable treatment for bringing about positive change in your life, promoting healing and to restore a sense of well-being in your mind and body.
