Hypnotherapy!

Hypnosis has been around for over 200 years. It is a great way to make much needed changes in your life. Ready to quit smoking? Ready to manage your weight? Ready to stop feeling anxious? Want to get better scores on your SAT, ACT or some other exam?  Why not give hypnosis a try?  

Most changes can be made in as little as three sessions!  Imagine how much money you will save on cigarettes, or food, or even on cost for retaking tests!

Hypnosis works because the suggestions made while you are in a "hypnotic state" (deeply relaxed) will go directly into the subconscious mind. You will make the changes without having to think much about it.

This is much different then the hypnosis you have seen at parties or on stage. I won't make you "cluck like a chicken" or "dance around the room". You will be completely aware of all of the suggestions that I make for you highest and best benefit.  I will even teach you self-hypnosis that will help you with anxiety or insomnia.

I have seen awesome results with this technique so I totally understand why it has been around for so long. Call today to make your appointment and change your bad habits!

Getting your mental health back in shape!

Getting Your Mental Health Back In Shape

from the American Counseling Association

Today, most of us are more aware of our physical health than ever before. We exercise more, pay attention to our diets and get needed health checks in order to catch problems early. But, most of us don't think about our mental health very much unless we happen to be facing a serious problem. In truth, however, just as it's possible to improve our physical health, there are also ways to get our feelings and attitudes into better shape. And in today's complicated and often stressful world, that's a very good thing. So, where to begin? How about your daily schedule? Most of us tend to fill our days with work, family and social obligations, leaving little or no time for ourselves. A fix for that is to include "you" in your daily calendar. Create a real schedule that includes time each day for at least one thing you find relaxing or enjoyable. Maybe it's reading a book, working at a hobby, or just taking a quiet walk. Whatever it is, just plan it and make sure it happens. Another way to reduce stress and feel better about yourself is to get involved with others. Wherever you live, you'll find community, civic and religious organizations searching for volunteers to help carry out their work. Giving something back to the community offers a sense of fulfillment and self-worth essential for good mental health. It can also offer a meaningful escape from your own problems and may help put such problems in a better perspective. And yes, exercise and staying physically fit is another means to improving mental health. Studies find regular exercise is a great way to fight depression, for example. Plus, as we get ourselves into better shape, we usually start to feel more confident about ourselves - everything from how we look to what we can do. And that's good mental health. No, you can't make stress and problems just disappear, but building a little relaxation into your life, helping those in need and staying physically active can all improve mental health and make it easier to cope with any problems that arise. Don't accept that you have to feel unhappy or depressed. If your own actions don't have you feeling better, check out the help that a professional counselor can offer. However you go about it, good mental health is a goal worth achieving.
