Hypnotherapy is often described as a way to bypass the conscious mind in order to address the beliefs that are stored in the subconscious. Joëlle uses a form of hypnosis called clinical waking hypnosis; this means that you are fully awake, fully in control, and will remember everything we discuss. Clients often report that they feel deeply relaxed yet alert, and aware yet detached to the thoughts running in their head. The state of hypnosis can be compared to the state of mind before awakening and falling asleep, or to a deep meditative state. During hypnotherapy, emotions and beliefs are explored at the subconscious level resulting in deep, lasting changes in behaviour and emotional wellbeing. Joëlle often employs other techniques such as emotional freedom technique and visualization to enhance the depth and efficacy of the treatment. Above all, the aim is to make you feel safe and comfortable while going at your own pace.
Hypnotherapy is an excellent tool to address issues relating to anxiety and depression, fears and phobias, addictions, stress, insomnia, and relationships. The consultation lasts one hour, and while the benefits of the session are usually felt immediately, three to five sessions are recommended to fully address an issue. For many clients, hypnotherapy has been a supportive way to heal and enhance all areas of their lives currently bound by limiting beliefs in order to reach and truly shine at their highest potential.
