I have been working in the hypnotherapy field since the early 1990s. In my case I am very creative in working with my clients needs in order to help them accomplish their goals.
Weight-loss is an area where I have had great success. By using several modalities like the Virtual Gastic Band and other visualization techniques to help the client work through their particular challenges.
For fears and phobias I often use tools like systematic desensitization, which is combining relaxation with the imagined fear. There are other methods and this is determined based on the clients situation.
Pain management is also helpful to decrease the level of pain a person is experiencing. Clients who are experiencing life changing illness are also good candidates. I do not have the ability to cure, but I can help the client with some of the side effects.
