  ELLEN'S BLOG
 Take me to the Unconscious

I want to share my thoughts, my musings, and some of my clients’ stories with you here so you have some insight into how inspiring this work is.


Hypnotherapy, or hypnosis as it’s also referred to, has an endless bank of amazing and transformative personal stories. In many of these stories, we resolve a specific problem that you may mistake as having a trivial impact on a person’s life.

What really happens though is that eachchange results in a domino effect on a person’s life, relationships, and happiness.

In each of these stories, my clients dared to take that first step to contact me because they knew they could expect more from their life.

Ending an Old Habit of Anxiety


hypnotherapy for anger

Generally, healing from trauma allows a person to be confident and empowered in life. Yet, it’s not unusual for a habit of anxiety to resurface long after a person has healed.


This happened to my client Patrick.


He was brought up by an abusive alcoholic father. The consequences of that upbringing reverberated in every aspect of his personal and professional life. In hypnosis a few years back, he was able to access the traumatic experiences that robbed him of hope and self-esteem. He could let go of his negative self-beliefs.


It was a transformation that freed him from his fear and anxiety. He began a life of empowerment, confidence and good healthy relationships. He forgave his father and had even grown closer to him.


Recently though, he returned with anxieties over a new relationship. He was fearful of his partner’s unhappiness with him. It set off the level of anxiety first triggered by his father’s abuse. It made him want to leave her and escape although he realized that his fear was triggered by his past.


Hypnotherapy is a natural and powerful process of changing the mind’s unconscious patterns. In a hypnotic trance, Patrick could face that fear by learning to detach from it when his partner expressed feelings of anger or dissatisfaction. He could put himself in her place and understand her feelings and could consider changing himself to satisfy her needs.


Hypnotherapy can persuade the unconscious mind to change what is unhelpful. It uses tools of detachment, metaphor and suggestion. It triggers the power of the imagination to experience what it feels like in the future, once the change has been implemented. Patrick experienced what it was like to actively listen to critical feedback, instead of his old defensive pattern from the past. This time, there was no anxiety.
