Hypnosis is a state of human consciousness involving focused attention and reduced peripheral awareness and an enhanced capacity to respond to suggestion.
Amy offers hypnotherapy to her clients in a calming, personal and trusting environment. You can discover optimal health and emotional well-being through physical, mental and spiritual guidance. Hypnotherapy can be quicker than other forms of therapy. A comparative study courtesy of the American Hypnosis Clinic confirms that Hypnotherapy has a 93% recovery after 6 sessions, Behavioral Therapy has a 72% recovery after 6 sessions, Psychoanalysis has a 38% recovery after 600 sessions. Hypnotherapy is not meant to be long-term.
Hypnotherapy has been recognized by the AMA (American Medical Association) since 1958 as a field of study. It is taught at Yale, Harvard Medical School, and numerous other higher-learning institutions throughout the globe.

Respects all individual learning styles and focuses on the relationship between bodily and emotional distress. The Breathe Approach to Self-Discovery is based on eastern and western methods of active listening, empathy, and therapeutic training, which serve to deepen the understanding of the true nature of "self".
Begins with a thorough assessment, including an in-depth dialogue as to what is happening between the body and mind. A variety of techniques are used to determine suggestibility to the sub-conscious as well as an introduction to self-hypnosis. The initial session is 90 minutes. Uses guided visualization, self-hypnosis techniques and the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) to help release old habits, reduce stress and anxiety, let go of old unhealthy relationships, overcome fears and phobias, relieve chronic pain, prepare for tests, enhance self-esteem, improve sports performance, and much more.
