What do Mike Tyson, Muhammed Ali, Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, Jack Nicklaus, Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Sir Winston Churchill all have in common? They have leveraged the power of hypnosis to improve performance.
It is estimated that approximately 88% of your behaviors stems from your subconscious. This means that only about 12% of your brain is consciously deciding your actions and behaviors. Think about that for a moment. Most smokers know consciously that smoking is bad for health, yet for they continue to reach for that next cigarette. The conscious mind recognizes a negative behavior, but the subconscious mind has established powerful anchors that cause physical reactions in the individual and smoking continues.
So how could hypnosis be of value to you in your career or performance? What if it were possible to associate competition or an upcoming event with a state of relaxed focus and enjoyment? Have you ever been hung up on a past negative performance that you just couldn’t let go? What if we could improve the quality of your sleep prior to competition? Has there ever been a limiting belief that continues to get in the way of your capabilities or performance? What if there was a debilitating fear that we could release allowing you to compete from a place of freedom? I have helped athletes and individuals overcome these and much, much more using hypnotherapy.
But what is it?
There is considerable misconception regarding what hypnosis is or does. Let’s start with what it is not. At best, the popularized version of hypnosis has individuals clucking on stage while their peers laugh. At worst, it is seen as some form of mind control. While I enjoy a good show as much as the next person, I was even a fan of Get Out, this couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Hypnosis is a series of techniques which are designed to send an individual into a natural state of relaxation necessary to bypass the critical mind. Once hypnotic trance or state is established, we leverage the power of suggestions to reassociate negative subconscious beliefs or responses to powerful new associations or beliefs in order to create optimal desired behaviors.
In hypnosis you are aware and in control of your mind and body during the entire session. Let me emphasize this again. In hypnosis you are aware of what is going on and in control of your body. I don’t make people cluck like chickens. I unleash the power of your subconscious brain and align it with your conscious goals to create in you an indomitable mind. We level you up.
What qualifies me to do this?
I graduated from the only nationally accredited Hypnotherapy school in the nation, the Hypnosis Motivation Institute or HMI College of Hypnotherapy where I received the designation of Master Hypnotist. This required me to complete over 200 hours of lecture and 300 hours of supervised practice followed by a comprehensive final exam and a practical exam. This is one of, if not the most, robust programs in the country when it comes to training hypnotherapists. Our school’s founder, Dr. John Kappas, literally wrote the definition of hypnosis which is still used in the Federal Dictionary of Occupational Titles. Since graduating, I went on to become certified in Hypnosis and Sports Performance from HMI and have continued to self-educate. Today I have hypnotized hundreds of individuals and athletes creating powerful minds with incredible results.
