Unlocking the Power of the Sub-concious mind can Change your Life....

About your Hypnotherapist

Gayle Fox, a Registered Nurse, is certified in Clinical Hypnosis and Complementary Medical Hypnosis by the Leidecker Institute and the National Guild of Hypnotist.

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis has been recognized by the American Medical Association as a valid form of treatment since 1958.

When you hear the word Hypnosis, you may picture the mysterious figure popularized in movies, comic books and television. This ominous, goateed man, waves a pocket watch back and forth, guiding his subject into a semi-sleep, zombie-like state. Once hypnotized, the subject is compelled to obey, no matter how strange or immoral the request. Muttering "Yes, Master", the subject does the Hypnotist's evil biddlng.

Few therapeutic procedures are less understood or more plagued by misconception or misunderstanding. Subjects in a hypnotic state are not slaves to their "Master". You have absolute FREE WILL. You will be fully conscious, but able to tune out most of the stimuli around you. You focus intently on the subject at hand to the near exciusion of any other thought. This allows the Therapist and client access to the unconscious mind where suggestions for change and resolution of problems can occur.

How does it work?

AII humans have two distinct minds, the conscious and the sub-conscious. The subconscious mind is vastly larger and more powerful than the conscious mind, yet it is the least understood and used. The subconscious mind receives and retains all messages and the events from our backgrounds, whether genetic, social, religious, or experimental. It neither accepts nor rejects the messages, but merely stores them. It also controls all of our bodily functions, automatic behaviors and habits. The conscious mind's job is to control our intentions and will power. The subconscious mind is stronger, therefore subconscious beliefs will win over will-power every time. This is the reason so many people fail at their goais. They are essentially working with the wrong part of their mind. Hypnosis can reach the proper part of the brain and change how the sub-conscious perceives things.

"Hypnotherapy can treat headaches, ease labor pains, help you quit smoking, replace anesthesia and improve study habits--all without side effects."
