Hypnosis (or hypnotherapy) is a focus of attention and quieting of the conscious, analytical mind. This focus offers peaceful inner awareness and the ability to relax deeply enough to recognize and use resources that might otherwise be overlooked.

Hypnosis enables you to take charge and be more in control of your mind/body, improving its functioning through your own powers. When in a state of trance (or Hypnosis), you’re able to focus on what’s really important. Hypnosis amplifies communication from your intuition, which is part of your unconscious mind.

Past life regression therapy is a specific technique, which can be used in a hypnosis session.

How Does Hypnosis Work?

Anyone who’s lulled a child to sleep with a bedtime story, used an analogy to convey a new idea, or even watched TV has used techniques similar to those used during Hypnosis. When you’re in a hypnotic state, you are able to pay closer attention to your own sources of information and guidance. You can enable your unconscious mind, where all deeply held beliefs, behaviors, and habits are stored, to make positive changes more easily.

Does Hypnosis Work?

Sometimes clients aren’t sure if they were hypnotized because they remember most of what was said during the trance work (trance is another word for hypnosis), or they don’t remember anything that was said. You are actually hypnotized in both of these cases. To find out why, here’s an article I wrote on why you shouldn’t be misled by these two signs.

Hypnosis has been an accepted therapeutic intervention by the American Medical Association since 1952 and is used by many professional athletes and artists. Hamid incorporates many self-hypnosis techniques, including EFT and NLP, into your session. The session is tailored to your individual needs and issues, empowering you so you can take control and be your best.

According to a study:

  • 93% recovery after 6 sessions — Hypnotherapy
  • 72% recovery after 22 sessions — Behavior Therapy
  • 38% recovery after 600 sessions — Psychoanalysis

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

Everyone changes differently, but 3-6 sessions is the average (with chronic issues often taking longer than acute issues), and I’ll be able to give you a personalized recommendation after your first session.
