About Hypnosis

Hypnosis is a powerful modality, and can contribute to healing in a multitude of arenas where people want to change.

"Knowing that my own unconscious mind helped me let go of my unwanted habit is amazing!" AB

There are many definitions of hypnosis! Charles Tebbetts, one of the hypnosis greats, said that hypnosis is “a natural state of mind, and (is) induced normally in everyday living much more often than it is induced artificially. Every time we become engrossed in a novel or a (movie), we are in a natural hypnotic trance.”

 

In therapeutic hypnosis, you are in a state of deeply relaxed focus. Hypnosis allows you to access and influence your subconscious mind, where deep memories and beliefs are held, and where habits are created and maintained. In hypnosis your conscious mind relaxes, the part of your mind that doesn’t want to change is thus bypassed, and your ability to change greatly increases.

 

When you're in hypnosis with me you are always in control, and hear everything that is said. You will never act against your moral code. You will only change in ways that you want to change.

Clients who benefit most from hypnosis understand that the hypnotist acts as a guide during the clinical hypnosis experience, but that the real power for change exists inside the client's own mind. These clients also participate in the change process outside of the treatment room, acting on their own behalf to maintain their health and well-being.

 

Please note: While hypnosis can effectively supplement medical treatment, it is not a substitute for medical treatment. Further, Erika Bunnin will never diagnose any aspect of a client's physical or mental health. 

There is no guarantee of specific results; clients' results can vary.
