Hypnosis and Guided Imagery
In her years of practice, Donna has found that clients who are able to use hypnosis successfully get results. Although experts do not agree on an exact definition of hypnosis nor on exactly how it works, Donna says, “A working definition would be that hypnosis is a deep state of relaxation; a highly creative state between sleeping and waking.” In therapeutic hypnosis the patient and the therapist work together in an atmosphere of trust and exploration. Contrary to characterizations popularized in film, only 1-3% of all people are able to go into a deep amnesic state. Both hypnosis and guided imagery work with inner consciousness to alter outer reality. These processes use inner awareness to intuit solutions, ferret out inner resources, develop a witness stance, and cultivate receptivity to spirituality, creativity, growth, and healing.
