What is Trance?You probably experience trance several times a day on your own. Do you ever become entranced by a good movie, or watching a TV show? Perhaps you have a favorite hobby or some activity that entrances you. All these experiences take your attention away from the every day world and you become focused on just one thing. Usually it makes time seem to go by very quickly. What is Hypnosis?Hypnosis is just the process I use to guide you into trance. I practice Ericksonian Hypnosis, named after the late Milton Erickson, M.D. Using his methods, I can guide virtually anyone into trance. Why would I want to go into trance?There are two parts to your mind. You have the conscious part, the part you are aware of all the time. And you have the subconscious part that you are not usually aware of. The subconscious part is running the show when it comes to unwanted habits like smoking, over-eating, phobias, or pain. Going into a trance makes it very easy to talk with the subconscious mind and suggest to him or her that she change the unwanted behavior. Is it safe?It is completely safe and natural. In fact, hypnosis and trance were approved by the American Medical Association in 1958. Clients typically report that when the trance is over, their experience is as if they've come back from a pleasant dream. Will I be under your control while in trance?Absolutely not. If I could control people while in a trance, I would go around to all the banks and hypnotize the bank tellers to hand over the money. Obviously, that is impossible and does not happen. You are always in control. Where is your office?My office is conveniently located in Novato, a short distance from 101 in the Bell Marin Keys area. What are your hours?I typically see people anytime between 1:00pm and 8:00pm, Monday through Thursday. There are sometimes exceptions, of course. So call for an appointment.
