Talk therapy works with the conscious mind where we have analytical thought, willpower, create goals, and plan. But according to neuroscientists that only makes up 5% of mind. The other 95% is the subconscious mind, which runs our bodily systems, stores our habits, creates emotions, and holds our beliefs, fears, and judgments about ourselves and the world around us.

So whenever there is conflict between the analytical and the emotional minds, emotions win every time. It doesn’t matter how “illogical” it is to feel anxious about something, if you feel fear and this issues triggers emotional upset then that will win out.

Flagstaff Hypnotherapy deals with the subconscious by using the body and mind’s natural ability to deeply relax (everyone can do this even if you think you cannot). And that’s why hypnotherapy only takes 3-4 sessions and not 18 months with talk therapy where you still do not see results.

So, the big question is, is there a way to tap into the placebo effect and mobilize our inner resources for healing without having to be tricked with fake medicine and procedures?

Can you teach a person to relax the mind and body to the point where you can tap into the body’s healing response and change their state of being?

This is where flagstaff hypnosis comes in.

That’s a long way of saying Craig helps people facilitate their own healing.

Virtual Sessions

Most of flagstaff hypnosis sessions over the last 2 years have been over Zoom and they work very well. In fact, if you look about halfway down on the homepage of the flagstaff hypnosis website, you’ll see three testimonials. Those 3 reviews were all Zoom sessions, New York, Florida and Phoenix.

“The critical mind part of us is often formed at a young age without adult wisdom and maturity. Therefore, many things that we might think about ourselves could be long outdated and based on outdated childhood thinking.

“After the critical filter is softened, suggestions are given to the client, guiding them to focus on positive input and their desired outcome. This ”rewires” their thinking and subsequent behavior which becomes automatically driven by the subconscious mind after the hypnosis session is over.

“The old thinking patterns are updated with new information, with the wisdom and intellect of our sensible adult reasoning mind. Therefore old, limiting beliefs and habits are replaced with new positive and healthy beliefs and habits.”
