First, What is a Hypnotherapist?

A hypnotherapist is a trained professional who, by inducing a trance-like state, helps you use your subconscious mind as an active part in making productive changes in your life.  Normally you subconscious is responsible for your current habits—whether they be good or bad. If you have a habit or behavior you want to change a hypnotherapist can help you access your subconscious and make the changes you have been wanting to make.

Make Sure They Have A Legitimate Office

For some this may sound obvious, there are many practitioners that do not have an official business or location. Having a center or clinic is crucial to determining how serious your hypnotherapist is. In Gresham and East Portland, there are only a handful of practices to choose from.

What Makes A Good Hypnotherapist?

How Does Hypnosis Work and What Happens During Hypnosis?

Great questions. Hypnosis is guided relaxation.  When relaxed enough you move into a trance-like state. You naturally go into trance-like states every day. It is similar to being completely absorbed in a book, movie, music, or even one’s own thoughts or meditations. In the trance state, you control all of your actions, you can hear everything around you, and you cannot be forced to do something against your will.
