Welcome to Hypnotherapy Associates of Grand Rapids

Let’s face it, when most people think of hypnosis, they think of barking dogs, quacking ducks, or other antics related to stage hypnosis. Images of pendulums, spirals and evil geniuses bending your mind to their will make up our cultures popular image of hypnosis. And while these images are great entertainment, when it comes to the therapeutic uses of hypnosis, they are about as realistic as believing that America will get out of debt in our lifetime.

Anyone who has studied basic psychology is aware that our actions follow our emotions . However, what most people are not aware of is that since our emotions are based in our subconscious mind, making changes at the emotional level is much more difficult when approached from a purely conscious level. And yet we hear it all the time… “I know what I have to do to… lose weight, quit smoking, finish my degree, market my business… I just don’t seem to have the motivation to do it.” The lack of emotional commitment, or motivation, to reaching our goals is what holds us back. Or, we seem to have things that trigger an irrational response within us, as if a part of us is holding us back. That part of us is the subconscious mind.

What hypnotherapy can do is help a person understand these subconscious emotional impulses, and change that subconscious programming. Exercise is no longer a chore that has to be done, but something that we look forward to… Eating a healthy diet is no longer the giving up of favorite foods, but the gaining of health and overall well being.. Negative self-talk is replaced by exciting and positive affirmations about success.

Hypnotherapy is widely known and used for things like smoking cessation and weight management, but did you know that you can also use hypnosis to help you achieve others goals such as stopping bedwetting, sleeping better, managing chronic pain, overcoming fears and phobias, and decreasing anxiety?  Improving sales and work performance, overcoming writers or other creative blocks, study and test taking skills are just a few of the ways in which hypnosis can help you make great improvements in your daily life.

So come in, make yourself comfortable, and take a look around to see how hypnotherapy can help you achieve your goals through the power of your mind.
