Hypnotherapy by Wayne Martin, LCSW, in Fort Worth, TX
Thanks to Hollywood, most people have inaccurate ideas about hypnosis. To be clear, hypnotherapy is not:
a sleep-like state where you don't know what's happening
giving up control to someone else
an ability you either have or don't have
a magical cure for ________ (fill in the blank)
In Fort Worth, we like what's practical and useful. Hypnotherapy is:
a focused state of mind where you are in charge
increased control over your own mind or body
a skill you grow through practice
a natural way to treat problems like stress, insomnia, and pain
well researched and scientifically validated
I believe almost all hypnosis is self-hypnosis: I serve as a guide, leading you into a unique kind of mental focus using the power of just words - and your way into this state of mind is unique to you. It's very pleasant and relaxing. This tool has helped me to overcome severe pain, undergo surgical procedures without anesthetic, and I use self-hypnosis almost every day to quickly relax.
When we use hypnosis together, we first talk through your goals and work through any questions or concerns you may have. (There’s a lot of misinformation in TV shows and on the web about hypnosis that can cause people to feel guarded about it.) Then when you’re ready, we begin to focus our mental powers on increasing your control and influence over what's been concerning you. I start by leading you into a nice relaxed mental state. Then when you’re comfortable and focused, I offer hypnotic suggestions to unlock the change you want. (Of course, they're only suggestions and not commands because you are free to do whatever you like!) When we're finished, you feel relaxed, strong, and confident to enact the changes you seek!
Feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss how hypnotherapy could help you achieve your goals.
