“Suggestion is the artful use of Imagination to increase enthusiasm for self-improvement.”

Are you habitually sad, habitually worried, habitually driven, habitually fearful, habitually stressed, or in a state of discomfort? We all know we are ‘creatures of habit’ but what that really means is that the brain is prone to habituated rather than fresh responses.

Our behavior is controlled – knowingly or unknowingly, positively or negatively – by reinforcement and encouragement via suggestions. Reinforcement is any action or thing that strengthens a habit. It is often unconscious and counter-productive!

Yes, suggestions are at work all the time. Even though we are not aware of it, we constantly program ourselves using suggestions.

The problems which affect human beings are "unconscious" ones, almost by definition.  After all, nobody consciously chooses to behave in ways that cause them pain or problems! Conditions are created and maintained in large part by habituated neural patterns of the brain. You see, whatever is impressed upon the cells of the brain, in the form of a picture, remain there and the brain uses these "old response patterns" as less than appropriate responses.  Fortunately, the brain is plastic and can re-wire itself once it receives a new imprint. The solution, therefore, is to get the unconscious and conscious mind in agreement.

We Are Constantly Changing!

The problems that have been holding you back will resolve themselves at some point, so why not allow them to begin fading away now using hypnotism?


What Is Hypnotism?

Hypnotism refers to the use of suggestion to adjust habits of thought, feeling, and behavior. It is a state of complete mental absorption or deep musing seemingly between sleeping and waking.


What Is Restorative Hypnosis?

Restorative Hypnosis is simply a state of relaxed focus. It is a natural state. It is a safe, natural, pleasant and powerful way to effect powerful changes in your life using the most powerful part of your mind - the subconscious. It can be used in any situation where you need to let go of old patterns of behavior, and learn new ones. 


How Can Restorative Hypnosis Help?

Restorative Hypnosis is a gentle, safe way to help you de-hypnotize yourself from unwanted habits and false beliefs, remove emotional scars, turn a crisis into a creative opportunity, expand the self-image and the "area of the possible," change energetic imprints on the brain, break old habits and imbue the individual with new capabilities, new talents and literally turn failure into success.


How Is Restorative Hypnosis Used?

It is used to reframe a memory in a more realistic way, as something that is inherently safe, or at least non-threatening. It utilizes a focused state of awareness similar to meditation that encourages a relaxed, coherent brain wave state. It is a bit like having a massage for your mind.


What Can I Expect?

Whether this is a face to face session or being done by phone I will explain the process of Restorative Hypnosis and review what you hope to accomplish.  As a hypnotherapist, my role is to serve as your tour guide. Then I will talk in a gentle, soothing tone and describe images that create a sense of relaxation, security and well-being. When you're in a receptive state, I will suggest ways for you to achieve your goals, such as reducing pain or eliminating cravings. I may help you imagine vivid, meaningful mental images of yourself accomplishing your goals. This allows you to dampen the emotional impact of a memory by changing its meaning, or by creating a sense of detachment from it so that you no longer feel stuck, preoccupied, or obsessed with it.



Contrary to how hypnosis is sometimes portrayed in movies you don't lose control over your behavior while under hypnosis. You always have control, and you can always hear what's going on, interacting with me during hypnosis by signaling or speaking.

When your Restorative Hypnosis session is concluded, you can emerge slowly and gently, and you will be able to go about your day normally. Hypnosis does not affect your memory; you will remember everything from the session.


How Many Sessions Will I Need?

Clients typically require between four and six sessions to address a specific issue, although many like to schedule regular appointments for ongoing support.



  • Hypnosis is safe and enjoyable.

  • You will be aware of what is going on at all times.

  • You cannot be persuaded to do anything against your own values.

  • You will be able to come out of hypnosis any time you want to.

  • You are always in control of what you say and do.

  • Restorative Hypnosis is a powerful tool we have for bringing about change at the unconscious level.

Whether you think of your Restorative Hypnosis sessions as a Guided meditation a Coached Visualization, a partnership with the Divine, or a pure mind programming transformation of your own neurology, greater awareness equals more security and freedom Restorative Hypnosis is a must-do for anyone looking to broaden their perspective, challenge their long-held beliefs, prioritize their lives and understand their true nature.

Changing Perspectives

The main objective of Restorative Hypnosis is to change a person's perspective or attitude in certain situations. Giving the subject a look, taste or feel of an alternative reality lets their imagination and subconscious mind know that there are other options other than the one it has been clinging to so steadfastly.  Imagination and the subconscious mind do not know the difference between fantasy and reality. Introducing it to new perspectives can quickly broaden their outlook.


How Hypnosis Can Change Your Mind And Body

Restorative Hypnosis can help you understand unconscious barriers to weight loss and enhance your chances of success via a variety of types of positive suggestion. By using Restorative Hypnosis to lose weight, you are reprogramming your mind.


Some examples include:

  • Development of an “inner ally” to help support you in making potentially challenging, but necessary changes.

  • Enhancing competence and confidence via encouraging, affirming language.

  • Visualization of already having achieved your goal and feeling good about it.

  • Accessing and partnering with the part of your unconscious that wants to make change.

  • Comforting the part of you that may be afraid of change.

  • Understanding why you have needed to use weight as a tool.

  • Reframing the previous “use” of eating as a tool that can now be safely retired.

  • Visualization of the new, healthier “tools” for coping, navigating personal relationships, and communicating effectively.

  • Mental rehearsal to make using healthy tools more automatic.


To summarize, at present, excess weight affects more people than not, and losing the extra pounds remains a challenging task for most. Hypnosis can help you address the unconscious reasons for keeping weight on, and help you more easily shed those extra pounds.


Hypnosis Subjects Lost More Weight Than 90% of Others And Kept It Off

With Restorative Hypnosis the world is yours to expand. The Society of Psychological Hypnosis, Division 30 of the American Psychological Association defines hypnosis as: 


“A state of consciousness involving focused attention and reduced peripheral awareness characterized by an enhanced capacity for response to suggestion."
