Hypnotherapy (Hypnosis)

95% Of Your Brain Is Not Being Used...

Start Utilizing It For Your Benefit

Hypnotherapy Is Backed By Science & It Works Very Well

Hypnotherapy has been well-validated for its efficacy in treating anxiety, depression, insomnia, chronic bad habits, smoking dependency, post-surgery pain, sports challenges and more. Numerous cognitive neuroscientists have conducted studies that have revealed that only 5% of our cognitive activities (decisions, emotions, actions, behavior) is conscious whereas the remaining 95% is generated in a non-conscious manner. Hypnotherapy works with this phenomenon rather than against it.

"Referred by my doctor, I went to Shirley for hypnotherapy to quit smoking... I didn't know what to expect, but after my session I just...stopped...smoking. (It's been nearly two months as I type this and no nicotine in any form.) I still have urges, but have been able to overcome them easily. I've used the recording of our session a few times as well, and that's been very helpful. Thank you, Shirley, for listening so carefully and helping me beat cigarettes! Five Stars."

"She has many healing tools including sleep optimization, prescribing of medicine, genetic testing, hypnotherapy, counseling, CBT, CBTi, education and more. She is like a therapist and a psychiatrist in one but with a spiritual awareness. This is rare. I am grateful to know her and have received her help on my healing journey"

What To Expect?

​Hypnosis is a state of mind, whereby the conscious mind becomes less critical, allowing the subconscious mind to accept suggestions more readily. While in hypnosis a person's senses are "heightened" as is their level of awareness. They experience a quieting of the mind, which enables them to accept positive suggestions.
Every person goes through the state of "hypnosis" naturally several times a day. Right before falling asleep at night and awakening in the morning, that physically drowsy feeling, where the mind is still aware of the environment. Children are in hypnosis while they are "mesmerized" in front of the television. Hypnosis is completely natural.

The very word hypnosis causes confusion. It was coined in the eighteen hundreds from "Hypnos" the Greek God of sleep. Unfortunately, by the time it was realized that there was no connection between hypnosis and sleep, it was too late. Various euphemisms have been used to describe the state of mind called hypnosis: creative or guided imagery, autogenic training, suggestive therapy.

Sessions are recorded confidentially so that clients can use them as frequently as they wish.
