As Jay continued his studies, he formalized his certification/credentials as a Hypnotist and studies in therapy style hypnosis services, in such specialties such as:
- Grief Recovery
- Weight Loss
- Smoking Cessation
- Sexual Issues
- Multiple other subjects that many people are struggling with in their daily lives.
If you’ve tried to lose weight for far too long, it is clear that you’ve tried all manner of things – counting calories, carbs, fasting, avoiding certain foods, eating fluids only, working out like crazy, using diet pills, and more are just some of the things you may have tried.
By virtue that you are reading this, it is clear that all these strategies have not been effective for you for one reason or another. Perhaps you lacked enough willpower to stay hungry for extended periods, maybe you always fell to the temptation of your favorite foods, maybe you find it hard to control your portions, can’t workout or haven’t been keen on calories/carbs.
Whatever the case is, it is likely you’ve reached the end of the rope for you and feel like giving up, are considering going on a gastric band surgery but are afraid of surgery and the risks and costs associated with that. Perhaps you are still looking for more, natural ways to shed those pounds without having to go under the knife. If this describes you, then hypnosis may be the one thing that will turn things around and ensure you don’t have to go under the knife to lose weight. Healthy weight loss is a long term process and even hypnosis isn’t a quick fix. Multiple hypnosis sessions over a period of time helps keep you on track and supporting you when new stumbling blocks are discovered.
A commitment of four hypnosis sessions is recommended to get started.
If you have tried to quit smoking and failed, I understand. I am a former smoker and failed several times before I became a non-smoker.
Our mind is divided into conscious and subconscious. The conscious mind is only 12% of your brain. That is the logical part of your mind that actually wants to quit smoking. The subconscious 88% of the brain is the part that runs our habits. It wants to keep right on doing what it does, keeping you smoking. This part of the mind doesn’t know how bad it is for you. It doesn’t know that you feel controlled by smoking or hate the smell or cost. That’s why you are still smoking despite knowing about all the downsides “consciously”.
Hypnosis is a relaxed mind tool that allows us to directly communicate with the subconscious mind-and get that 88% realigned with the 12% of you. That allows 100% of you to decide to become a non-smoker. Then your whole mind can “decide” that stopping smoking can be easy and permanent.
We can work with one extended session or over time with three sessions, I recommend an extended session followed up as needed with a refresher session if needed.
Sexual issues can be difficult to talk about, especially with someone you don’t know. It’s important to know that you are not alone when it comes to problems around sex.
Sexual dysfunctions are highly prevalent in both sexes, ranging from 10% to 52% of men and 25% to 63% of women. Sexual dysfunction in men and women include sexual desire disorder, sexual aversion disorder, sexual arousal disorder, male erectile disorder (impotence), orgasmic disorders, premature ejaculation, sexual pain disorders and vaginismus, among several others.
Sexual issues are often not physical problems but psychological problems. It is important to know though that our minds are very powerful. If you have had a traumatic or even just an uncomfortable sexual experience at some time in your life, your subconscious mind may be trying to protect you from further discomfort by inhibiting sexual pleasure in your body.
Using hypnosis, your mind can be programmed in a new way to eliminate the old defeating thoughts and replace them with a new confidence when it comes to sex.
Sports hypnosis works on the principle of the mind-body connection, and as advances in neuroscience and psychology have been made and the science studied, we know now that the two are unequivocally linked.
Our minds and our bodies are in constant communication with a flow of neurotransmitters from the brain to the cells of the body and back again. The mind tells the body how to behave, and the body tells the mind how to feel and how to behave. Hypnosis can be used to encourage the right sort of messages to be transmitted from the mind to the body, for instance a more relaxed stance when taking a golf swing, or an extra degree of determination that helps you overcome physical resistance in an sporting event.
The objective of sports hypnosis is to bring the mind and body into balance, the physical body connecting to the unconscious mind. This is why hypnosis is so well suited to sports, which is all about unconscious and instinctive reactions. When athletes are in ‘the zone’ they are in fact in a hypnotic trance as the athlete’s attention is fixed and the unconscious mind takes control. Hypnosis can help an athlete perfect their skills, finely tune their technique, improve their self-confidence and overcome self-doubt or performance anxiety. Hypnosis also improves focus, a key component for any athlete in order to win.
When anxiety/phobias control our lives we experience a stimulus – say, a social situation – that triggers an automatic response, the fear and panic and ultimately anxiety. In a hypnotic trance state, the mind becomes more open to suggestion. This allows the hypnotist to provide “posthypnotic suggestions” on positive ways to deal with anxiety and phobia such as suggest to you how easily confident you will be the next time you sit on a plane. Traditional therapeutic techniques tend to provide strategies for managing these automatic thoughts. We might learn to control the fear, for example, but they still exist. And that’s why many traditional treatments fail. The fear and panic – the root causes of your anxiety still exist. With hypnosis, you can begin to remove the information in your subconscious that’s telling you to feel fear and panic in certain situations.
