Hess Hypnosis Heals
What We Do:
Evidence Based Hypnotherapy:
"Hypnosis treatment effectively changes thoughts, perceptions" (emotional and physical) " and behavior."
Research has demonstrated hypnosis creates physical changes in the body and in the brain.
Jensen, PhD (2011), Hypnosis for Chronic Pain Management
"... for psychoanalysis we can expect a recovery rate of 38% after approximately 600 sessions. For Wolpian therapy" (a type of cognitive behavioral therapy), "we can expect a recovery rate of 72% after an average of 22 sessions, and for hypnotherapy we can expect a recovery rate of 93% after an average of 6 sessions."
Barrios, PhD, (1970), Hypnotherapy, A Reappraisal, Theory, Research, and Practice 7(1) 2-7
"Hypnosis results in immediate reductions in pain for most people, .... but not after cognitive therapy." ... "Following the hypnotic cognitive therapy sessions, the participants reported significant improvements in everything we measured, over and above the effects of hypnosis or cognitive therapy alone."
Jensen, PhD, (2011), Hypnosis for Chronic Pain Management
"Cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy has demonstrated 70% enhanced treatment outcomes and long term remission compared to CBT alone..... hypnosis sessions can also deal with associated phobias, substance abuse, eating disorders, low self-esteem, social behavior patterns, motivation..."
Experience Based Hypnotherapy:
Helen has used hypnosis in her private holistic psychiatric practice and hypnosis practice since 2005.
An RN since 1975, a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner (*prescriber of medication) and Psychiatric Clinical Nurse Specialist (psychotherapist) since 1995, Helen has observed that no two people are the same. They are different physiologically in how they respond to medication and to nutrients; they have different psycho-social histories; they have different personalities. She adjusts her approach in hypnotherapy based on the individual's response and goals.
"Medical Hypnosis is one of the most useful therapeutic techniques for taking advantage of the mind-body connection..." (by) "directly access the machinery of the body .... the autonomic nervous system" "..creative application of medical hypnosis can be brilliantly successful for autoimmune disorders and many other kinds of disorders."
Andrew Weil, MD (2005) "Heal Yourself with Medical Hypnosis"
"Hypnosis has been studied for a number of conditions. It has helped patients gain control over undesired behaviors including addictions, phobias, and obesity, as well as cope better with pain, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, fatigue, gastrointestinal and dermatological disorders and countless other issues."
Chaplain, MD "Debunking Hypnosis: Coding Medical Hypnotherapy"
* Helen has closed her private holistic psychiatric practice. This means she is not prescribing medication, nor is she providing psychiatric care. Hess Hypnosis Heals is the practice of therapeutic hypnosis to create beneficial change. Should you need psychiatric medication or care, Helen will refer you to a psychiatric provider. Hypnosis can be used an adjunct to medical and psychiatric care, it does not take the place of medical or psychiatric treatment.
Benefits within hours, not years. Hypnotherapy is a directive, solution-oriented therapy. All that is required is your commitment to change, to transmute negative
energies to positive, to give up fear in favor of love.
Effects as permanent as you want. Hypnosis accesses the subconscious mind to 'rewrite the software'. Most clients feel an immediate change. You are given self-hypnosis homework to support the changes.
No medication or needles! Between waking and sleep is a wide continuum of states of consciousness. Hypnosis allows for the intentional access to the subconscious mind to create the desired change.
