How Does It Work?

The altered state of awareness that we call “hypnosis” is safe. For anyone searching for San Francisco Bay Area hypnosis, Kay is a trusted professional who guides you into a state of deep relaxation to slow down the self-critical part of your mind.

Anyone can be hypnotized, if they so desire. In Kay’s experience for hypnotherapy assisted weight loss or to help you overcome other possible problems, she’s found that some people mistakenly assume that the hypnotic state is an unconscious one, similar to being asleep or under anesthesia. This is not true. We are always conscious in hypnosis and aware of our surroundings.

Kay uses a careful, systematic approach to her clients who are seeking Bay Area hypnosis, which releases the natural, self-healing forces deep within you. Her hypnotherapy method can be more direct and powerful than other traditional treatments. Addictive, unproductive, or destructive patterns of behavior can be changed, as can long-standing issues that you may have. In particular, this is why hypnotherapy assisted weight loss or stopping smoking have been successful for some of Kay’s clients.

By the way, Dr Carol Ginandes, Harvard researcher did not put the patients to sleep by swinging a watch like a pendulum while the patients lie on a couch. “That only happens in the movies,” she laughs. “In hypnosis, people don’t lose control and go into a zombie-like state where they can be made to do things against their will. They don’t have to lie down, you can enter a state of hypnosis standing up, even standing on your head. Patients don’t even go to sleep, rather, they enter a state of absorbed awareness…” This is similar to losing oneself in a good book or in a favorite piece of music.”
