Hypnosis is a state of inner absorption, concentration and focused attention. This altered state of consciousness is like using a magnifying glass in the sun- when the rays of the sun are focused they are more powerful. Similarly when our mind is concentrated and focused, we are able to use more of our potential and more of the power of our mind. In a sense learning hypnosis is the ultimate in a self-control skill, rather than being out of control. I believe all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. I don't control the client or &qout;put him under", but rather I coach the client in how to go into a trance and make helpful suggestions.

I have found hypnosis helpful with the following problems

There are limitless other possibilities.

I have over 200 hours of training in hypnosis mostly from the Minnesota Society of Clinical Hypnosis in conjunction with University of Minnesota Office of Continuing Medical Education. I have used hypnosis in my practice since 1991.
