Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool, used in conjunction with coaching, to access the subconscious mind. When we are young, we unconsciously set up ways of behaving that help us feel safe. As we get older, we have more resources and are more resilient, yet often we run those earlier programs over and over without being consciously aware of them. In those areas where you find yourself stuck and having difficulty in making changes, you may find hypnotherapy helpful in the reprogramming of these unconscious behaviors into something more healthy, self-nurturing, and appropriate.
Some of the ways these habitual patterns of thinking or behaving can manifest include:
Again, these are all responses that used to keep us safe.
Working together we will not just stop the unconscious repetitive patterns that do not suit you well, but we will replace them with new patterns to ensure success.
What others are saying:
“I had just about given up on my weight, resigned myself to “old age” weight. I was feeling really dumpy. With Kirsten’s method and process I was supported, had a usable structure, and achieved my goal. I continue to use the process she taught me if my weight creeps back up. It raised my awareness of my eating habits and allowed me to face where I was not being authentic in my choices. Kirsten is kind, gentle, supportive, clear, not afraid to call you on your stuff – but never makes you feel “less than” for your humanness. If you are seeking a new pathway to being more authentically you – Kirsten is an great place to start.” ~SF
“I never actually connected my fear of speaking up at work with my experience as a child. Let’s just say that is was unwise to speak up at home – the squeaky wheel did NOT get the grease. With Kirsten’s help I saw that every time I had the chance to speak up, the same little voice in my head would tell me that it was safer to be quiet and not to make waves. Needless to say, this did nothing for my career. I was able to use hypnosis to learn to replace that voice with another, more rational, voice. Thank you, Kirsten, for your help!” ~HC
There is no longer any doubt that the mind and body are intimately connected. Study after study has shown that the mind has amazing capabilities of healing almost every physical ailment. Scientists and doctors call this the ‘placebo effect’ and it can account for upwards of 30% of the healing potential of many prescription medications.
If there was a pill that had no side effects at all and had a high percent cure rate, would you not take it? Hypnotherapy and health coaching is just that. Together we can harness the power of your own mind to create the physical and mental circumstances necessary for you to begin to heal.
For those who wish to work with healing imagery, I provide a discovery session to determine what image works for you and then a custom recording for you to take home.
For those interested in a more all-encompassing program, I offer a different kind of 12-step program*:
“I’m dealing with a difficult diagnosis and finding it very hard to move my focus from my prognosis to my healing. I have found the perfect support from Kirsten as I navigate this difficult time. Coaching has helped me to discover who I really am, what I really believe, what is important to me (and what is no longer so important) and what needs to be let go so I can save my energy for healing. Hypnotherapy has helped me to come up with healing imagery that works for me and feels positive. I listen to my custom hypnosis MP3’s provided by Kirsten to reinforce my healing thoughts whenever I start to feel down. I have found that I spend more and more time in a positive frame of mind, and I’m easily able to switch my thoughts to the positive when I notice that I am feeling blue. What Kirsten teaches and what I have discovered are lessons for life, not just lessons for healing.” ~GL
Many of my clients have been subject to trauma in their past. When trauma occurs as a younger child, misperceptions of the cause and the blame for the experience can get lodged in their minds. Often these misconceptions continue to play in the adult mind unconsciously and can ‘leak out’ during times of stress. Symptoms of this often includes low self-esteem, shame, and guilt but can also manifest through bad habits like substance addiction.
Healing the past is possible through regression hypnotherapy. Using hypnotherapeutic techniques, you will gently and safely be taken back to the time of the trauma. Already you are able to view it differently as you are going back with the eyes of an adult. We bring your adult awareness of the entire situation to you as a child and begin the process of understanding and re-parenting.
You will be empowered to no longer hide from the truth. You have a choice as to how you want to see those events. You can understand that, from now on, events that trigger the memory of the trauma no longer need to trigger the feelings and behaviors that went with the trauma. In hypnosis we work with different ways of responding to the trauma in the adult that are healthy, realistic, and nurturing.
Our goal is not to change the event itself, only how you feel about the event and the meaning you give it. So even though those things will happen to children (because they did), you can expect to make it through okay (because you did and the proof is sitting in my office). And no matter what happens, you will still be loved and continue to be loveable. That’s safety.
Hypnotherapeutic regressions are done over a series of three sessions: discovery, regression, and integration.
For thousands of years humans have used trance states to explore and enhance their spiritual lives. In hypnosis, a trance induced in a safe and guided way, you can have access to soul-level knowledge. Spiritual seekers find Past-Life regressions, Life between Lives regressions and Spirit Communication to be immensely healing and provide information that is unattainable through most other methods of inquiry.
Past Life Regressions: Approximately 10% of the people who undergo a regular regression find themselves in a place and time that clearly not their current life. Exploring these places and times opens clients up to information presented in a new and unique way, and is often very healing and relates intimately to the challenges the person is currently facing. Rather than leaving it to chance, spiritual seekers can directly connect with a past life in order to learn, gather information, and heal. For more information, please click on Past Life Regressions.
‘Life Between Lives’ Spiritual Regressions: In a technique developed by Dr. Michael Newton, hypnosis is used to regress you to a past life, move you forward through your death, and into the space beyond death. In this space there is a chance to experience the soul in its purest form, without a body. You will be given the opportunity to learn about your life purpose, your connections to other people, the purpose of your experiences, the choice of your family and your body and other soul-level questions. This is a specialized hypnotic technique taking 4-5 hours and requires an interview prior to booking. For more information, please click on Life Between Lives.
Spiritual Communication with Loved Ones: Often when we lose a loved one, there were things left unsaid, gifts left ungiven, and connections missed. In a space of great grief, the ability to connect with the loved ones can be immensely healing. For more information, please click on Spiritual Communication with Loved Ones who have Passed On.
