Hypnotherapy: Another Tool in the Toolbox
Sheila McKeon of Positive Transformations uses hypnosis therapy with some clients —with your consent, of course — to teach you to take control of your physical, emotional and psychological responses. It is one more tool in her toolbox of psychotherapy tools, one more technique to help you make the changes you want to make in your life.
Asheville Hypnosis Therapy is not like a showman’s hypnosis. Sheila, like any licensed and properly trained counselor, doesn’t use the technique to control your mind or make you do funny things in front of an audience. Instead, the process puts you in a deeply focused state during which you can separate early trauma from the behavior you learned from it. This frees you to choose more positive behavioral patterns and escape from the traps that kept you stuck.
Hypnotherapy Has a Proven History
Dr. Milton H. Erickson first incorporated hypnotherapy into a psychotherapy practice. By 1958, the technique was recognized and accepted by both the American Medical Association and the American Psychological Association. In 1995, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) began recommending it to treat chronic pain. Some people are naturally more susceptible to hypnosis therapy than others.
Today, it helps people stop smoking and quit other addictions. It helps others overcome past trauma and current pain, reduce stress and ease anxiety. And it is very safe with children. According to Sheila, it “is about bypassing the conscious mind to work with the unconscious mind, to help focus on goals and resources to obtain desired results.”
