No matter how long you have been a smoker, you can quit!  Smoking is a mental habit, not a physical need!  Nicotine replacement therapies, pills, e-cigarettes, and chewing gum may give you another method to satisfy your craving for nicotine, but they do little to address the smoker’s lifestyle, emotional cravings or habitual responses. To successfully stop smoking, you need to lose the desire.  With hypnosis you can replace your daily smoking routine with healthier behaviors, neutralize the triggers and change your smoking responses so that you would prefer to do something else instead.  You can become the “comfortable non-smoker”that you were before you lit that first cigarette.  To learn more, read about our stop smoking program.

From Stressed To Best

One size does not fit all!  In the same circumstances, one person may be relaxed and happy while another becomes stressed.  One person may become quiet and sullen while under stress, while another may lash out.  Although the physical responses to stress are the same in everyone, the mental, emotional and behavioral responses are quite different.  Therefore, changing from a state of stress to a state of relaxation requires an approach as individual as your personality.

Using the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) to determine the stressors and behaviors of different individuals, you will learn the signs of your stress while also showing you how to see the stress signals in others who may display them in a much different manner. The MBTI, which was based upon the work of Carl Jung, has been used for categorizing personality types by human resource departments, psychologists and educators worldwide for fifty years.

Just as you have a preference for being right or left handed, you have natural, “hard-wired” preferences for how you engage in the world.  You will discover your inborn strengths and how to access them. You will learn to recognize when you are moving into a stressed or un-resourceful state and have a four point plan of action to move out of it quickly.  By understanding the in-born preferences of yourself and others, you gain insight and flexibility.  You will have the ability to arrest the progression of stress, and move quickly back into your most resourceful state.

“From Stressed to Best” is the acclaimed program developed by Ruth Schneider and David Prudhomme of the Mederi Wellness Center.  District Hypnosis offers this program for both individuals and corporations.

Overcome Phobias

Do you live in dread that a phobia will reveal itself in an embarrassing situation?  Sure you know it’s irrational, but being confronted with your phobia (be it the fear of  spiders, snakes, elevators, flying, clowns, or commitment) sends bolts of panic racing down your spine!  Sure, you’ve made light of it, and maybe even a couple of people have teased you about it, but the fear is very real.  Maybe you have adjusted your life around it by taking long flights of stairs instead of elevators, staying our of the woods to avoid snakes and spiders or driving long distances to avoid flying, but isn’t it exhausting?  No one is born with a phobia.  You developed it through a series if experiences.  Hypnosis can help you to re-process memory driven fears and de-activate your phobic triggers.  Imagine yourself relaxing with a good book while flying or simply walking up to a spider and admiring his beautiful web.  Set yourself free with hypnosis, because life is too short to live in fear!

Drive Away Negativity

Do you have a crummy little voice in your head that distrusts anything new?  If someone is nice to you, do you look for an ulterior motive?  Do you see too many reasons why your efforts to get “unstuck”can’t work?Do you believe that you will fail, so why bother?  You are only as successful as your beliefs will allow.  Hypnosis  can help you to increase your perspective, use the greater resources of your mind and live a life of filled with hope, gratitude and real possibilities.

Manage Anger

Everyone gets angry.  It’s a normal emotion under certain circumstances.  But if you find yourself getting angry often, or intensely, then perhaps, (and please don’t  get upset and take this personally), you may need some help controlling yourself.  Anger is an expression of fear and fear limits your mental capacity to receive information.  Hypnosis can give you the insight and self-control you need to remain calm and resourceful even during confrontations.  (Unless you would rather risk making the “greatest speech you will ever regret”the next time you get upset.)  Let hypnosis help you process and express anger more effectively.  Don’t get tipped over when life takes an unexpected turn.  You can learn to be the one who stays cool and takes control of the situation even when others lose it.

Process Grief/Loss

A broken heart does mend.  Feeling overwhelming waves of sorrow is normal after a traumatic loss, but if the pain does not diminish with time, moving forward with your life may seem insurmountable.  Processing grief can feel torturous and confusing.  When grief clouds your mind, adjustment feels frightening and the path to recovery appears to be concealed.  You do have the courage to continue.  Let hypnosis soothe the ache in your heart, open your mind to a higher understanding and bring closure.  It is possible to accept, forgive, let go and live the full and happy life you deserve.

Releasing the Past

Do old resentments intrude into your present?  Have you ever noticed that it is usually the negative memories that seem to always creep into your consciousness robbing you of the life you are living now?  Hypnosis can help you to release them.  Melt the clouds of old unresolved experiences and feel the true richness of your life.  The rest of your life is waiting for you!

Guilt and Forgiveness

Is there a wall of shame, guilt or resentment standing between you and your relationships?  Do you replay painful scenarios in your mind?  Do past experiences prevent you from trusting?  Let yourself and others off the hook!  The truth is, you are not really upset for the reason you think.  With hypnosis you can discover and release old stuck feelings and replace them with insight, understanding and emotional flow.   Forgive yourself and others and be free to love, trust and grow.

Public Speaking and Performance

Of all fears, surveys show public speaking to be number one on more people’s list than any other.  Even actors occasionally become frozen by stage fright.The ability to speak before groups of people is one of the most important career skills you can develop.  If you find yourself having difficulty voicing up at meetings or giving presentations, hypnosis can help you to remain calm and present.  By learning a few simple techniques that you can use anytime and anywhere, you can actually enjoy your time in the spotlight.

Get Rid of Bad Habits

Nail biting, teeth grinding, skin picking, hair pulling, gum popping, and other little tics and habits make you appear nervous, weak or immature to others.  Annoying habits can also take a toll on your appearance and even your health!  Your attractiveness and even the advancement of your career can be affected by the negative image of these nervous habits.  Don’t let compulsive unconscious habits control you.  Hypnosis can help you to disengage the reflex and you can present a cool, calm, confident, in control image of yourself to the world!

Overcome Substance Abuse
