Stress is everywhere. It is essentially a part of the character of
all things, not just people, but for all things living and non-living. Our

our skills of clinical hypnosis by a practitioner trained in the mind-body
connection, we will assist individuals in their own healing.
Research supports our methods!
Hypnosis is probably one of the most researched modalities in the area of
mind-body therapies. Recent
breakthroughs in psycho - neuro - immunology studies give increasing
evidence of the connection between mind-body communication and the
rationale as to how hypnosis plays a factor in improving certain
situations. There are as many different definitions of hypnosis as there
are beliefs about how it works. 'Guided
Imagery' and 'Biofeedback' are used often in the hypnotic process. You are
always in control. A
straightforward explanation of the hypnotic phenomena is that it is a form
of self-induced and focused attention that can make it easier for you to
relax or control your body's functions and ultimately assistant in the
relief of certain situations causing uncomfortable conditions.
Our methods can do all that as well as provide a needed boost to
your immune system. An important aspect of our method is to encourage our
clients to learn and to practice self-hypnosis and guided imagery on their
It is commonly known that our bodies require two states during a
twenty-four hour period, that of wakefulness and that of sleep. This is
called our Circadian Rhythms. Our
bodies naturally go through rhythms during the day, which create a 'break
response stimulus'. These rhythms are referred to as "Ultradian
rhythms" and generally are about ninety minutes to two hours in
length. During this period the mind-body pauses and turns inward to focus
on its healing. Modern practitioners of clinical hypnosis utilize these
natural ultradian rhythms to assist the patient to create a mental link
between their required goal and natural physical abilities to heal. To
achieve this the patient is guided by the therapist to a relaxed state,
which allows for communication to the unconscious mind. It is at the
unconscious level that many conditions and thoughts exist, which are out
of reach to the conscious mind or that the conscious mind is ill equipped
to deal with. Some people
have a more improved control or a better focus of their rhythms and are in
deep touch with retrieving the communications in a conscious state.
What the study of psycho-neuro-immunology is beginning to provide
us with is a blue print of cellular and molecular communication between
mind, body and gene, which takes clinical HypnoCounseling out of the realm
of magic and into a psychobiological reason for success.
This focus isnt as intense as it sounds.
It is a very useful and effective skill!
So if you have found yourself or a loved one suffering from self-defeating
behaviors that just wont go away or seems to return again and again,
consulting a practitioner of one of the mind-body therapies may help.
Sources of stress can arise anywhere at any time: in personal settings, in
job or business related pressures, during the challenges of marriage or
the stress of being single, the pressure of
achieving some personal goal or in sports, the stress of trying to
remain healthy, the stress of an illness.
Some of these pressures can be self-imposed.
Stress tends to create turmoil and confusion and inhibits our
functioning and achieving our greatest potential. Unbalanced energy is
devoted to justifying the stress and this in turn can set in motion a
snowball effect by adding more stress to the situation. Several approaches
are available to the management of stress. We can achieve a kind of
psychological or emotional balance or centering that helps us to better
handle the stresses of life with greater self-control. We can also learn
practical skills to deal with the issues in our lives and the systems that
are causing the unwarranted stress reaction. We can change our thought processes used to comprehend and
react to the stresses we experience.
We can even learn to appreciate certain stress.
We achieve more in a stress-reduced mode.
Many traditional practices
such as yoga and meditation have a significant and measurable impact on
our physiological relaxation including respiratory and heart rate, oxygen
consumption, muscle tension, and blood pressure. Self- hypnosis is another very powerful tool to assist us in
achieving our highest potential and reduce the stresses that are
inhibiting us. By
understanding and utilizing the basics of self-hypnosis we can produce a
state of profound relaxation and apply useful affirmations to strengthen
and encourage superior management strategies.
The goal in the application of HypnoCounseling for stress reduction
is to identify the troubling situations and provide the client with the
tools to counter these stressors. While,
the techniques, which activate the relaxation response, are highly
recommended, in HypnoCounseling the objective is to intervene directly in
the activity of the stressful situation by short-circuiting certain
factors that trigger the stress. All
of the skills of the HypnoCounselor, including creative visualization and
imagery, metaphor, life reframing, and direct suggestion, to mention some
methods, are utilized to help reach the balanced state of calm essential
for the effective management of stress.
If a student is experiencing stress in relation to his schoolwork or with
testing, and it happens that this same student possesses very poor study
skills, relaxation alone would be a limited approach. A more relaxed
outlook may well help with performance in school to some degree it is
highly unlikely that the improvement would be noteworthy because the
underlying problem of poor study habits would not have been addressed.
It is better to establish the deficiencies in the student's study
habits and reach a clear understanding of which skills need improving.
During the hypnosis session, the positive patterns of study
behavior to replace the negative habits would be reinforced; more positive
patterns would be programmed and suggested. Performance is closely allied
with stress: stress can both impede good performance and be the result of
bad performance. Sometimes it is difficult to tell the difference which
cause of stress came first: the fear of not performing well or simply not
performing well. The cycle
needs to be uncovered and reestablished. It is Important that the skill
and habits associated with the performance itself need to be a top
priority. In business and in
personal life there is no difference to the strategies of the
HypnoCounselor. The weeds need to be discovered and eliminated before the
field of creativity is to produce vital growth!
With a trained and skilled HypnoCounselor this garden of skills can
be well cultivated!
