Meet Your Provider: Blossom Hypnosis

‘Hypnosis Can Be a Game Changer.’

Q: How does hypnosis work?

A: Hypnosis is simply a relaxed state of mind where the subconscious mind becomes highly receptive to the suggestions offered. By relaxing with the induction method (focusing attention), you shift into a state that allows your conscious mind to be bypassed so that the subconscious mind can retain the suggestions.

Q: What are the more common issues that are treated with hypnosis and how successful is treatment?

A: PTSD, anxiety, phobias, stress, depression, low self-esteem, weight loss, addiction to drug, alcohol and cigarettes are common issues that have very effective outcomes.  We work to release any trauma first as it is the underlying cause of many kinds of addictions and behavioral health issues. The subconscious mind then becomes an internal adviser to cope with these issues. I have treated a variety of phobias, especially fear of public speaking. When the phobia is released from the subconscious mind, clients are able to make presentations and give speeches at their respective work places. Other treatable issues include OCD, procrastination, hair pulling, nail biting, insomnia, and pain management.

Q: How do you determine if someone is a good candidate for hypnosis?

A: During the consultation, a pre-talk on hypnosis and a suggestibility test is conducted to determine if the client is a good candidate.

Q: What does the first session look like?

A: A free consultation is offered in the first session which identifies the areas that need to be addressed. Individualized treatment plans are designed to work on the underlying issues. I have helped hundreds of clients who felt that traditional talk therapy did not work.
