what is hypnotherapy and overview


Hypnotherapy is not that “you’re getting sleepyyyy” thing…it is really just a deep therapist-guided meditation that allows you to reprogram your subconscious mind.

You might visualize a practitioner swinging a clock in front of your face, but we are here to tell you that the movies have it all wrong. Hypnotherapy is a guided meditation, leading to a state of deep relaxation led by a certified hypnotherapist. This relaxed state enables clients to begin to address deeply stored anxieties, fears, phobias, emotional blockages and addictions at the subconscious level. Hypnotherapy utilizes tools like imagery, imagination, unconscious navigation and positive suggestions to help patients overcome their current psychological blocks.

Hypnotherapy can help you heal

According to Psychology Today, Hypnotherapy can be used to treat “anxiety, phobias, substance abuse, sexual dysfunction, and bad habits.” It can also be used to improve sleep, aid children struggling with learning disabilities and resolve relationship issues. Not only used to treat mental disorders and behaviors, Hypnotherapy has also been used to help the body heal from chronic pain conditions. Look for hypnotherapists that are certified by the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) or the Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis.

What our practitioner experts have to say


Michele Harper, what is a hypnotherapist

WellSet: What do you love about being a hypnotherapist?

HARPER: Hypnotherapy is not long-term therapy. Some clients experience changes in just a few sessions. I love being a hypnotherapist because it’s like reprogramming and rebooting your inner software and you can often see the program shifts in the client right away.

WellSet: What can a client typically expect in a session with a hypnotherapist?

HARPER: During your hypnotherapy session you will remain completely aware of everything that is going on. In fact, many people experience a hyper-awareness where sounds appear enriched, thoughts clearer and your ability to imagine and visualize is greatly enhanced.


Cheyenne Harding, what is a hypnotherapist

WellSet: How can Hypnotherapy help heal the mind and body?

HARDING: Hypnotherapy directly targets the subconscious mind and allows the client to uncover the answer within. Our immediate environment directly impacts our beliefs, values, and sense of self-security. Within my practice, I serve as a guide to allow the client to find the key to their self-mastery. This therapeutic healing will directly target the client’s most pressing concerns and allow for inner growth and healing.
