Philosophy of Hypnosis
Hypnosis Sessions at a Flat Rate So We Focus on Results, Not the Clock
Because we're exploring the unconscious mind and it has no concept of time, events from decades ago are as relevant to it now as the day the happened. So, if one more Q&A before we do the hypnosis could make a big difference in how we both understand the situation, it's worth the time to make that discovery. After all, hypnosis is about getting to a better place in a few visits instead of a few years.
If a Quick and Easy Technique Can Get You Your Result, We Go There First
Depending on the issue you want to address, there are a number of conversational, eyes-open techniques I use that take 10-30 minutes and get the desired result in one sitting. Better still, in these situations, there's nothing you have to do afterwards like listen to audios. Typical issues include food addictions and cravings, overcoming fears and phobias and changing beliefs from negative to positive.
Sometimes, it's clear the issue has been resolved, other times, we need feedback in the field to be certain. Either way, the number of sessions we arrange reflects the nature of the challenge and your motivation to make the change. As such, your referral or glowing testimonial is far more valuable to me than an extra few visits.
You Are Unique, So No Hypnosis Scripts Will Be Used During Your Session
In the world of hypnosis, many scripts exist for the most common reasons people visit a hypnotherapist. After identifying the issue, some hypnotists will bring the client into the hypnotic state and then proceed to read one of these scripts.
I do not operate this way. If my eyes are busy staring at a script, then I'm not watching your body language. Or watching your reactions to certain words. What's more, I take copious notes during the interview process so you receive a 100% personalized hypnosis experience aligned with the therapeutic outcome you desire.
You Are Not Broken, So You Do Not Need to "Be Fixed"
Your unconscious mind has vast computing power compared with your conscious mind. Also, it reasons through emotion where your conscious mind reasons through logic. And your unconscious is blissfully unaware of time while your conscious mind is sensitive to it. Taken together, your unconscious mind has a very different view of cause and effect.
Given the very different strengths each exhibits, it's natural for the conscious and the unconscious to be on different pages with regard to a particular issue. And since your conscious mind strives to protect your unconscious mind based on its logical reasoning, emotional notions that would help the unconscious mind make a change get shielded out.
So, instead of thinking you are deficient in some way, hypnosis assumes you have the resources you need to make a positive change. It's simply a matter of engaging the unconscious mind while the conscious "takes a break" for a little while.
We All Do The Best We Can with the Resources We Have at the Time
If you've ever looked back on a certain period in your life where you thought you could have made wiser better decisions or navigated things better than you did had you only known "X," then:
- Welcome to being human, and
- You're not alone.
Beating ourselves up over it again and again creates stress and a whole host of health problems that stem from stress. Chances are, there was a lesson you needed to learn which could not have been learned with a conscious awareness of "X." And once you silence the inner critic with this soothing, reassuring and nurturing understanding, emotion and logic realign to serve you... with your unconscious and conscious minds in rapport.
Gratitude and Forgiveness Are Magic Healers
Once we apply the ideas above to our view of other people in our life, past and present, even if they've wronged us profoundly, our ability to rise above "an eye for an eye" or "Why me?!" lets us become detached from our expectations, so we are freed to move on.
Nature and Ancestral Wisdom will Guide You Back to Balance and Harmony
We've had TV since the 1920s. Pesticides came along in the 1940s. In the 1950s, artificial and highly processed convenience foods came along. In the 1960s we started pasteurizing dairy and killing off the good bacteria that we'd been living off of for thousands of years, In the 1970s, fast food joints found their way onto every street corner. In the 1980s, sugar replaced fat amid the low-fat craze and the march to obesity gained momentum. In the 1990s, GMOs followed suit.
So, it's been about the span of one human lifetime that we've completely reinvented food. There's no way our bodies, after millions of years of slow evolution, could be expected to thrive on these food-like substances. And yet, thanks to TV and a never ending parade of ads for junk food engineered to addict us, it's no wonder we have an obesity epidemic and a health-care crisis.
Meanwhile, nature and your body know better. Your ancestors lived closer to the way humankind was meant to eat, work and play. This wisdom is in you. And your unconscious mind, given the right words, ideas and pictures, will gladly unlock it so you can adapt to this modern life in a way that serves your highest well-being.
Absolve Yourself: You Do Not Have to Make Society's Dysfunction Your Own
Negative memes. Thought viruses. Ideas we accept without our conscious consent. Somehow, they get lodged into our unconscious minds and wreak havoc on us in subtle, virtually undetectable ways. For example, after nearly 60 years of having it drummed into our heads that fat makes you fat and that saturated fat will kill us, the science to disprove this is now overwhelming and finally being acknowledged in the mainstream media. But what about the thousands of people, if not millions, who died prematurely or find themselves burdened with poor health by trying to keep to this tragic regimen? Not to mention how no society in human history ever ate this way!
All this goes to show that we are affected by our times, our place, our families, communities and other memberships and allegiances, whether we realize it or not. And since many of our conceptions of the world around us were formed in childhood when we did not have the mental faculties to question them critically, we accepted them. Yes, there are such things as collective delusions. But once you come to realize them, you are free to absolve yourself. And to even forgive your inner critic for it was doing the best it could with the information it had at the time. Authentic absolution can only come from within. And with it, extraordinary healing.
I reached out to Eric for help with anxiety issues related to my personal relationships. We had a long introductory conversation in which he explained his approach and how it would work to address my problem. After that we agreed on scheduling four working sessions. I noticed improvement in my anxiety after the second session, and significant improvement after the third session.
I had been in therapy for a couple of years prior to working with Eric, and I was aware of my self- sabotaging beliefs, but I was having trouble internalizing that understanding at the emotional level. I think sessions with Eric helped me achieve exactly that.
What I liked about Eric’s approach is that I was able achieve noticeable improvements in only a few sessions.
I would definitely recommend Eric to others with similar issues.
My main objective in meeting with Eric was to lose weight. We discussed the process, what was required on both sides, and decided on a game plan that initially cleaned up the emotional baggage which of course most of my over-eating stemmed from.
Quite honestly, as with most other reviewers, I was reluctant and somewhat worried about the nature of this type of therapy. I really really needed it to work. I have always believed in the power to better oneself, and have derived many benefits from traditional therapy over the years, but I needed to kick it up a notch and engage a bit further into the what, when and where of my over-eating in order to put a stop to the negative patterns and hopefully break the cycle that kept cropping up.
I have since found hypnotherapy guided by Eric to be incredibly empowering, deep reaching and amazingly enlightening. In other words, nothing like what some believe this type of non-mainstream therapy might entail.
My 6 sessions over the last five months have been uplifting and encouraging, and I would always look forward to each session.
I highly recommend Eric and his hypnotherapy process to all those seeking to better themselves, either professionally, physically, mentally, and/or spiritually.
Thus far, I've lost 18 pounds without feeling the least bit tortured in the process, I've noticeably reduced the amount of emotional eating I'm known for, and I feel soooo much better about so many other aspects of my life (ie: mother issues, relationship chaos, etc)
Bottom line.... Like most things, you only get out of it what you put into it! If you're "in it, to win it," you will be pleasantly surprised to find the happiness and/or clarity you may be seeking.
5 stars does not seem like enough recognition for Eric and the work that he does.
Before I contacted Eric, I had been struggling an up hill battle with deep emotional hurt. This hurt would manifest regularly as anxiety, anger and isolation. On top of that I also was three years into a severe case of post partum depression. SO serious that I had to take medication for some time and was afraid that I would not only loose my children but my marriage. I felt helpless and needed, I have to stress this part the most, NEEDED to change my story for myself and my family.
I again started to search the Internet for some information or therapy that might help. I had done years, decades of talk therapy with various therapists and nothing had ever quite helped. I honestly was so tired of telling the same story of my history, how I felt, etc , etc. It was all quite monotonous.
I stumbled across Eric's yelp post and didn't know too much about Hypnosis. After reading his reviews and researching about hypnotherapy, I figured why not give it a try.
I wanted to fully commit myself to the process and signed up for four sessions. I immediately recognized a shift within myself after the first session. My anxiety and anger were still present but they didn't have as large of a presence as they had had. I was able to regulate them more easily and move forward in a healthier way then I had before.
I was able to change my story and proclaim, I AM AWESOME! Everyday will have its ups and downs but now I can deal with the ebb and flow of daily life without falling apart into a deep anger filled depression.
Months later, I can say that I would absolutely recommend hypnotherapy with Eric. I share my story all the time with my friends and family. It has changed and impacted my life for the positive and I am so thankful to Eric for this.
Eric is genuine, goal oriented and a good listener. His sessions are structured to be efficient and thorough to achieve the results that you want. Hypnotherapy was a completely different experience than what I had expected - the visualization techniques that Eric works with you on are quite simple in theory but can work wonders in helping you tap into deep rooted issues and come out with new outlook on life. Even after the first session, I left with my heart lighter and my mind clearer.
If you are skeptical about going, definitely feel free to give Eric a call for a free consultation over the phone to see if it is a good fit for you. Eric is honest, upfront and personable and will answer any questions that you have. You can go for just one session or a series - everything is up to you and there is no pressure to commit to anything.
If you are looking for a guide to help you make big changes in your life, I highly recommend Eric. Most importantly, while working with you during your sessions, Eric also shares with you helpful tools to better deal with daily emotional challenges both big and small.
