If someone told me 5 years ago that I would not only be an avid supporter but a participant in hypnotherapy, I would have laughed in their face. Being a multiple business owner, parent, having gone through a divorce and wanting to remain extremely effective in my clients’ lives, sometimes my stress level is through the roof. When I met Terry Hodgkinson, I was impressed with how well-cultured, well-traveled and genuine of a person he was. At the time I was certifying multiple life coaches and Terry was already a coach I was interested in adding to Katapult Enterprises team. As “The Confidential Coach” I coach mostly leaders on Love, Sex, Relationships & Business Matters. Terry coaches on pretty much any subject and utilizes hypnotherapy in his coaching sessions. After getting familiar with Terry and reading over some of his book, my respect for him grew and I started sessions with him. Now… I’m a type A, driven, independent kind of girl and the thought of someone hypnotizing me in person, let alone over the phone, sounded impossible. 4 years later, I have been hypnotized by Terry to many times to count. I always tell Coaches, in order to be an effective coach, have a coach. Terry Hodkinson is my coach and confidant. Hypnotherapy provides me with the rest, relaxation and insight to myself I so need to keep a balanced life. Here are some of the many benefits of hypnotherapy…

If you have a lot of stress in your life and you feel like you can’t get it under control by using diet and exercise then it’s time to think about Hypnosis. Because Hypnosis involves putting you in a deep state of relaxation it gives your mind and body a chance to experience the relaxation that they desperately need.
5. Hypnosis can help deal with childhood issues – Childhood issues. Everyone has them. From serious abuse or other problems in the home to lack of self esteem or a need to be successful at all costs the issues and problems that you experienced as a child might still be impacting you today and causing you to make bad decisions or to not take very good care of yourself. Hypnosis is a great way to work through childhood issues and replace those negative messages about yourself with positive ones.
6. Hypnosis can cure sleep disorders – Millions of people suffer from sleep disorders that range from full insomnia to night terrors, wakeful sleep, sleepwalking, and the inability to fall into REM sleep which your body needs. Sleep disorders can cause a wide range of other problems like obesity and addiction to either sleeping medications or to caffeine or other stimulants in an effort to keep the body going even though it’s exhausted. Sleep disorders are notoriously hard to treat. Many sleep disorders have an associated psychological condition that makes it necessary for people to get both psychological and physical treatment in order to be able to get some sleep. Hypnosis can help treat the psychological problem that is causing the sleep disturbance while at the same time it puts the body in a deeply relaxed state that helps the body and mind become rejuvenated.
7. Hypnosis can promote deep relaxation – If you have ever tried meditation you know already the great things that relaxation does for the mind and body. You can become more creative, better at problem solving, less irritable, and you can reduce your risk of health problems like heart disease or high blood pressure significantly if you meditate or relax regularly. But if you have trouble relaxing, or if you never seem to be able to relax deeply enough to really feel refreshed, then you should try Hypnosis. Hypnosis is a wonderful way to experience truly deep relaxation that will make you feel much healthier.
8. Hypnosis can help you change your behavior – Are you the kind of person that is always snapping at others? Do you get irritated and angry often? Do you have trouble managing your anger? Hypnosis can help you change your behavior patterns so that you can be healthier and happier. Often behavioral patterns are learned in childhood, but a hypnotic suggestion given while you’re in a deep hypnotic state can help you get rid of those old messages telling you to behave in certain ways and replace them with messages to act in new, more appropriate ways. If you are trying to recover from the effects of a dysfunctional family or an abusive childhood using Hypnosis to help eliminate the unhealthy patterns that you learned to survive can be very therapeutic.
9. Hypnosis can help recover buried memories – All of the experiences that you’ve had throughout your life are buried in your brain somewhere. If you have lost touch with the parts of your brain that hold memories of your childhood Hypnosis can help you go back and remember the things that you need to remember in order to know why you act the way you act now. Typically this is used to help people that were abused as children understand their behavioral patterns but there can also be happy memories that you have forgotten as a result of an injury or accident that can be recovered with Hypnosis.
10. Hypnosis can help treat Anxiety and Depression – Many people are reluctant to take medication to treat Anxiety and Depression because they don’t want to become dependent on medication. Other people just can’t seem to find a medication that works for them. Hypnosis is a drug free and very effective way to calm Anxiety and to treat the symptoms of depression. By using hypnotic suggestions to eliminate the triggers of Anxiety and Depression people that suffer from Depression and Anxiety can sometimes find 100% relief from those conditions by using Hypnosis.
