In hypnotherapy we make friends with the unconscious mind. Through parts therapy, inner child work, visualization and hypnotic journeying we discover ways to make change that is natural and supported. Have you ever noticed the paradox that in times of peace it seems that everything in life is exactly perfect, and yet there is always challenge and change? That is because we are living in one part of ourselves and not seeing the whole of who we are. In hypnosis we help to integrate all of the parts to make ourselves more whole. My work is influenced by twenty-five years of writing, years of Buddhist study, hypnosis, teaching and personal coach training. The work is always client centered and guided. I do not center my practice on the male model of the hypnotist as a controller of the hypnotee. You are always in control and I am your guide. Together we can go to interesting places.
