Your mind is much more powerful than you think!

Yet, only by understanding its true nature can you truly use its power to your advantage and change your life as you see fit.

Although in casual conversation people tend to equate mind with consciousness - technically speaking - the mind is the immaterial set of faculties comprising various cognitive and non-cognitive aspects generically called consciousness and respectively the subconscious mind.

Consciousness is the accessible part of the mind that governs rational thinking, intelligence, factual memory, judgment, and coordinates thoughtful actions. The subconscious mind operates as an autopilot guided mainly by intuition, instincts, habits, emotional response patterns, and feelings - that are somehow triggered or nurtured by consciousness.

While intuition is the fastest form of intelligence, and instincts are innate reactions, feelings have a great influence on your state of mind, your thoughts, decisions and daily life. Thus, the concept of "state of mind" refers to how and what you feel rather than what you think. Although they work so differently, your consciousness and subconsciousness work together as coherent software to help you cope with the challenges of everyday life, survive, and thrive.

Of course, the concepts of the soul and that of the emotionally sensitive heart are philosophical rather than scientific concepts. Yet, the way you perceive them will largely determine whether you will live your life more as a "sentient soul" fulfilled or sometimes hurt by life, or as a reserved person with a "thoughtful life". However, if you sincerely believe that your heart is nothing more than a hydraulic pump, and you perceive yourself as rational, cold, and out of touch with your feelings, then this approach may not be your approach of choice.

Everyone wants a better life. However, happiness, health and serenity are not the result of chance targeting some lucky ones and not others, but they are long-term goals and aspirations that you can actively envision, pursue and achieve. By tapping into the vast resources of your subconscious mind, you can get what you want most out of life; by freeing yourself from what prevents you from achieving your dreams, you can regain control of your fate and thus live a healthier, happier, more serene, and more confident life. Overall, you can significantly improve the quality of your life.

Even though no one really wants to be unhappy, there are so many unhappy people everywhere. As if real life doesn't care about people's desires ! Still, when misfortune strikes, people tend to believe that they could magically get rid of their unhappiness just by focusing their brain to wishing it away. While this trick sometimes seems to work, in most cases the feelings don't seem to yield easily to reason. The good news is that there are many ways to deal with unwanted feelings, and I hope my approach will meet your needs.

As long as a fulfilling and serene life spoils them, people tend to believe that their well-being is the natural result of their rational thoughts and sound decisions. It's only when life takes a turn for the worst that people realize that they only have rational control over their lives as long as they aren't overwhelmed by strong feelings. In real life, one is terrified of spiders, cries when remembers distant unpleasant events, sleeps badly or indulge in bad habits not because he wants to; but because lingering negative feelings, unintentionally aroused, will trigger behavioral mechanisms that will make one overreact to imaginary threats, cry for distant events or engage in various bad behaviors.

Your emotional feelings are not only the most important aspect of the quality and meaning of life - they are the most undeniable proof that you are not a soulless, heartless and purposeless biochemical machine. You are a human being in search of meaning, purpose and happiness! Obviously, everyone wants to be happy. However, your lingering emotional feelings - whether painful, fearful, traumatic or joyful - will largely determine your state of mind. Because what really makes the difference between a happy and fulfilled life and an unhappy life is the predominant daily mindset resulting from the balance between good and bad lingering feelings that are unintentionally projected into the emotional background of your daily reality.

When you are trapped in an emotional reality made of stress, anxiety, traumas or other uncomfort  able or painful feelings, you have the choice to perceive them as an unavoidable part of life and believe that the best you can do is to learn to cope with them, or see them as a harmful presence that you would like to uproot and leave behind. My belief is not only that you can, but that you have to let go of your unpleasant feelings that keep you trapped in your past. Living with stress, anxiety or other uncomfortable feelings is like walking with stones in your shoes! You will no longer be able to focus on your priorities. Your unwanted feelings will distract your attention, interfere with your thoughts, and most likely end up draining all your energy. Learn to listen to your body’s whispers before they turn into painful screams!

Do not fall into the trap of false belief that there is nothing more you can do to change your fate! If you'll neglect them, negative feelings can accumulate and wreak havoc in all aspects of your emotional and somatic health. Surprisingly, what impacts all aspects of your daily life is rather the lingering emotional memory induced by the perception of past events, than the events themselves. Although you cannot change the factual past, you can still control the emotional memory of your past experiences - by reprogramming the subconscious patterns of your unpleasant emotional reactions. That is why, whether you are at the beginning of your misery or you are already living with unpleasant negative feelings on a daily basis, hypnotherapy is an option to consider. Even if you feel overwhelmed by trauma, stress, or anxiety that seems to resist all other approaches, Somatic Hypnotherapy could still be of help.

Hypnotherapy has evolved considerably throughout its existence and especially since Dr. James Braid described it in terms of empirical medical approach, in 1843. Nowadays, there are several types of hypnotherapy whose philosophy, approach to problem solving and the results differ considerably. Somatic Hypnotherapy is a very particular type of therapy under hypnosis which is distinguished by its pragmatic approach and above all by its spectacular results. While conventional hypnotherapy focus on adding successive layers of positive feelings on top of your persistent negative feelings, Somatic Hypnotherapy helps you identify, assess and root out unpleasant feelings, as you see fit. Rather than adding new elements in the hope of restoring balance and health - as other approaches do - this approach aims to identify and suppress the factors of imbalance. 

Unlike conventional approaches in hypnotherapy that aim to help you "learn" new patterns of positive emotional responses, Somatic Hypnotherapy helps you "unlearn" your negative patterns. Thus, thanks to its customized approach, Somatic Hypnotherapy can help you break free of various unpleasant feelings that keep you trapped in your past and prevent you from living in the present moment. Somatic Hypnotherapy can help relieve stress, anxiety, traumas, phobias, grief, guilt, shame, pain, unwanted behaviors, bad habits, insomnia and mu ch more. With time and experience, this approach has proven to be so reliable and effective that the principle of " NO RESULTS - NO PAY " has become the guarantor of the seriousness and ethics of my work and it applies to all my therapies. I love my work! I have made it my mission to help people, and my excellent references bear witness to it.

Most conventional approaches to emotions aim to teach you how to develop good lifestyles and avoid thoughts, images, and situations that would trigger your lingering unpleasant feelings. Yet, stress, anxiety and other unpleasant emotional responses are not an inevitable result of difficult life events, but rather the avoidable result of inappropriate or unhealthy emotional responses to life events. Moreover, unhealthy emotional responses are very difficult to control by the rational mind alone because they are not the result of a rational process. They arise from patterns of emotional reactions stored in the sub-consciousness! However, I hope you have better things to do in your life than continuously learning to deal with your unpleasant feelings.

You are entitled to live the life that suits you! You should be able to browse through the images of your unpleasant memories and to think about anything you want, without the fear of triggering your once unpleasant feelings. While the process of intentional learning by the conscious mind of a new desired reflex, habit, or pattern of emotional response may require sustained effort, the process of learning by subconscious mind occurs almost instantly. The subconscious mind only needs a split second of a situation perceived to be life-threatening, very dangerous or emotionally very strained, for it to learn an unhealthy emotional response. The good news is that by using the right approach, the sub-conscious mind can unlearn unhealthy emotional response patterns as quickly as it has learned them.

When looking for extraordinary results, you better consider out of the ordinary approaches! Dare to think outside the box! What if - as if by magic - you can achieve the serenity of being able to think about anything you wanted and your thoughts would no longer trigger any of your once unpleasant or painful feelings? As incredible as it might sound, this is what Somatic Hypnotherapy can help you accomplish! At the end of your therapy, while browsing through your worst memories, you will feel as if your heart has relieved or even completely forgotten the stressful, anxious, traumatic or painful somatic component of unpleasant events of your past experiences or future projections on which we worked, while your cognitive memory keeps the associated images and factual details intact.

With somatic hypnosis you won't undergo a passive script therapy. The beauty of this approach is that I’ll assist you in the process of self-re-arranging the perception of your reality as you feel fit. Your subconscious mind will submissively respond to your wishes and follow the instructions. I will be there for you, mostly guiding and assisting you throughout your process of change. Thus, you will become the craftsman of your own change. While under somatic hypnosis, the moment your subconscious mind agrees to break with the unpleasant feelings of the past, your new emotional reality kicks in and you will clearly feel that there is no longer any unpleasant feeling associated with the events we worked.*

Although at the end of your therapy you will be free from feelings of anxiety, stress, trauma, pain or other unpleasant feelings from the past that we have been working on, the end of your therapy is just the begining of your healing process. Although Somatic Hypnotherapy definitely helps you reset your past issues, this approach is not a kind of a magic spell that will protect you against any future issues. The aim of my approach is not to make you believe that you are some kind of emotionally shielded Superman and push you to live like a carefree sleepwalker for the rest of your life.

My job is to help you identify and remove the padlocks that keep you locked in your self-limiting reality. I will help you reset your stress, anxiety, trauma, and any other feelings that are holding you back from moving forward with your life by keeping you trapped in your past. I will help you unlock your full potential and become who you really are, at your best! However, learning from your experiences, finding out who you really are, and living your life is your job.

This innovative approach to health and wellness is so effective that you will not only be able to solve several inter-related issues in one session, but you will get your good results on the spot, throughout your session. Somatic Hypnotherapy can help you even if nothing else has worked! Yet the only "magic" ingredients for your spectacular change are the skills of your hypnotherapist and your willingness to change.

My promise is that you’ll experience a significant improvement in your issue right after your first therapy session, provided that the issue you want to work is within my area of expertise and Somatic Hypnotherapy is your therapy of choice. If you will not see any improvement at the end of your first session, I will not accept your money.

Discover how to use your subconscious mind to beautify your life by turning your stress, anxiety, trauma and pain into mere distant memories. Learn to listen to your heart, to trust your intuition and the wisdom of your spirit. Your heart and your spirit are much smarter than you think!

You are here for a reason and whatever that reason is, don't allow it to cripple your life: it's a safe bet that Somatic Hypnotherapy will be able to help you.
