You are in the right place, whatever the reason for your visit.
Your mind is much more powerful than you think! Your conscious mind governs your rational thinking and thoughtful actions, while your subconsciousness operates like an autopilot that relies mostly on your instincts, habits and feelings. Although they work so differently, the conscious and the subconscious minds are designed to help you survive and thrive.
By tapping into the vast resources of your subconscious mind, you can get what you really want out of life; you can become happier, healthier and more confident, and you can improve your life and live it in the present. Happiness, health and serenity are not accidents that randomly happen to some people and not to others. These are long-term goals and aspirations that you can actively envision, seek out and attain. Learn to trust your intuition and to respect your spirit's wisdom. Discover how to better use the resources of your subconsciousness to beautify your life.
Since the dawn of time there has been a consensus that emotions have a strong influence on thoughts, behaviour and the symptoms of diseases. Yet, the lack of indisputabl scientific evidence on the functioning of the human mind still fuels many heated controversies about the nature of emotions and the exact mechanism by which emotions have such a strong impact on thoughts, reason, behavior, physiology and health. Obviously, you do not want negative feelings to be part of your life. Yet it seems that overwhelming feelings are difficult to handle by the rational mind alone, because they are activated from patterns stored in your subconsciousness.
When you are overwhelmed by intrusive feelings, you tend to think, say and do things that you would not if you were in a neutral state of mind. Once you are trapped by unpleasant emotional patterns, you have the choice to learn how to better cope with them or to uproot and leave them behind. Because, if you neglect and start accumulating them, over time, negative feelings can wreak havoc on all aspects of your emotional and somatic health. Therefore, whether you are at the beginning of your misery, disappointed with other approaches, or you are already living with painful and unpleasant negative feelings on a daily basis, hypnotherapy is an option to consider.
There are several types of hypnotherapy whose philosophy and results differ considerably. Somatic hypnotherapy can help you break free from the unpleasant feelings that keeps you emotionally trapped in your past. When other approaches are failing, this approach is often a last resort therapy for a large variety of emotional, behavioural and somatic issues. Somatic hypnotherapy can help you to significantly improve your stress, anxiety, traumas, phobias, addictions, unwanted behaviours, grief, pain, insomnia, and much more. Moreover, as the good results of somatic hypnotherapy are highly predictable, the principle of "no results - no pay" has become the guarantor of the ethics of my work and applies to all my therapies.
Traditionally, the heart was seen as the seat of the soul and its state reverberated in the physical body in the form of sensory experiences, commonly known as "feelings." This traditional view of feelings was dominated by the belief that whatever feeling arises against your will, it will not succumb to your reason alone. During the 19th century, the concepts that harmful thoughts are not only induced by harmful feelings but they can also generate harmful feelings and the concept that states of mind have their distinct chemical (hormonal) footprint, have gained in popularity. However, because of endless controversies regarding the nature of emotions, it was only after 1844 that psychiatrists gradually imposed their treatment as a first-line intervention and psychologists after 1892. Moreover, the first DSM wasn't published until 1952. Meanwhile, "feelings" have gradually become "emotional feelings" and nowadays, "emotions".
My approach is based on the contemporary physiological and neurological behavioral response models. From this updated perspective, when they occur, emotions cause a change in the state of your mind, your body and your physiology. Since these changes are always coherent, you can regulate an unpleasant emotion by regulating any of its manifestations. Thus, despite the complex nature of emotions, psychiatric treatments can control unwanted emotions by controlling the physiology of the brain with psychoactive drugs, psychological treatments by focusing on mental and thoughts, while hypnotherapy controls undesirable emotions by controlling their perception. Because, what has the potential to accomplish or haunt your life is rather the perception of events than the events themselves.
Unlike conventional approaches in hypnotherapy that aim to "reprogram" your mind by inducing new positive states of mind and new patterns of emotional responses, somatic hypnotherapy aims to "deprogram" your mind of your negative responses by removing your unwanted patterns. Thus, while conventional hypnotherapy focus on adding successive layers of positive feelings over the persistent negative feelings, somatic hypnotherapy aims to help uproot the lasting unwanted negative feelings. As a matter of fact, the quickest and most natural approach to rebalancing a diseased living system is to eliminate the imbalance factors rather than add new elements in the hope of regaining balance and health.
This is why my pragmatic approach aims to help you to identify, assess and winnow away your unpleasant feelings, as you wish. While under somatic hypnosis, the moment your subconscious mind agrees to break with the unpleasant feelings of the past, your new emotional reality takes place and you will clearly feel that there are no more unpleasant emotions associated with the events we worked. Then, instinctively, you begin to think and behave accordingly. Because, unlike other approaches that triggers the change of your emotions through changing your thoughts or the chemistry of your body, somatic hypnotherapy changes the emotional feeling and the changes of your thoughts and chemistry are resulting from this emotional change.
With somatic hypnotherapy you won't undergo a passive script therapy. The beauty of this approach is that I’ll assist you in re-arranging the perception of your reality. Your subconscious mind will submissively respond and follow your 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.
Following your somatic hypnosis therapy, you'll feel as if your heart has eased or completely forgotten the stressful, anxious, traumatic or painful component of the unpleasant events of your past, while your cognitive memory keeps intact the factual details.
This innovative approach to health and well-being is so effective that not only will you be able to solve several interrelated problems during the same therapy session, but you will assess your good results on the spot, throughout and mainly at the end of your session.
Trust your intuition and respect your spirit's wisdom. Your spirit is best positioned to put in place sustainable change solutions. Your spirit is much smarter than you think!
