What is hypnosis?
“Hypnosis” means a state of altered awareness in which the sub-conscious mind becomes active while the conscious mind becomes passive. During this state the therapist gently guides you to access hidden information that is often the root cause of your problem. A dialog takes place between your conscious mind and your subconscious which has stored 1,000’s of memories, beliefs, feelings and impressions which you’ve experienced not only in this lifetime, but in some cases, past life times. Our beliefs or imprints can have a powerful impact on our lives. Our brain has a critical filter which determines which beliefs will be imprinted in our subconscious. When we have a positive imprint this creates a positive feeling about ourselves or our life, which in turn generates a positive attitude which leads to success and happiness. But if we have a negative imprint, this creates negative feelings, negative attitudes and ultimately will lead to failure in our life. Hypnosis is the key that can access these negative imprints, which have become viruses in our subconscious; it can literally delete all the files which are creating imbalance and unhappiness in our lives and reprogram your subconscious with new positive beliefs.
All of us go into a hypnotic state several times in a day, without actually being aware of it. When you’re driving a car, you’re not conscious of every gear that you shift or turn that you make. You do it automatically without thinking. This is called the Alpha state which is a light form of hypnosis. Another example of a hypnotic state is those few minutes just before drifting to sleep or right after waking up while you are still in bed and not fully conscious. We can also go into a hypnotic state when we are totally immersed in an activity like reading a book that we can’t put down or watching TV.
What happens in a typical hypnotherapy session?
There will be an initial intake in which I will find out what issue you would like to address during the session and get some background surrounding the issue so that I have a better understanding of how I can help you. Then I will explain the function of hypnotherapy in greater detail so that you fully understand how it works and feel totally comfortable with being hypnotized. You will then be inducted into a deeply relaxed state so that we can access the root cause of your issue and heal it.
Hypnotherapy is completely safe. You will be in total control throughout the entire session and have the ability to wake up and come out of hypnosis at any moment if you choose to do so. During the session, you simply follow the suggestions/instructions of the hypnotherapist. It is truly an amazing tool that will transform your life.

What is Past Life Regression?
Past Life Regression (PLR) is a therapy that uses hypnosis to retrieve memories of your past lives or reincarnations. PLR puts you in touch with your larger reality and can help you to achieve a clear understanding of why some limiting beliefs, destructive patterns or difficult situations in your present life are in some cases, connected to your previous life or lives. Through the medium of past life regression you have the possibility of gaining profound insights and healing past emotional wounds or physical traumas, so that you can clear any blockages in this lifetime which have been preventing you from living a more joyful and fulfilling life. It is a holistic therapy because it works on all the levels of our being – body, mind, emotion and spirit.
Many people don’t realize how their present problems invariably originate in the past. Thus, our past life actions can affect our present life. PLR helps to uncover and understand the buried trauma that is hidden from our conscious awareness and is also very useful for healing irrational fears & phobias, which in many cases may originate from one of our past lives. PLR also helps us to resolve unhealthy patterns in our relationships and can facilitate a deeper understanding about ourselves and our lives.
How is Hypnotherapy with Michele unique?
I use a variety of tools in my hypnotherapy sessions which are not commonly found with other hypnotherapists. Since I have a wide range of training in holistic therapies, your session may include a combination of any of the following: Reiki, Energy Psychology, Kinesiology, accessing the superconsciousness with verbal statements to clear limiting beliefs, Access Consciousness TM tools, shamanic journeying etc., to facilitate your healing in a more dynamic and efficient way. In many cases, only one session is needed to resolve one major issue in your life and sometimes we may have time to address two or more. Hypnotherapy sessions are generally 1.5 – 2 hours in duration.
