Ericksonian Hypnotherapy is a safe and gentle treatment. Over the years it has become the most popular hypnosis method for treating anxiety, fear, bad habits, and more. This practice is named after the late Milton H. Erickson M.D, one of the most influential figures in bringing the use of clinical hypnosis into the forefront of medicine and psychotherapy.
This is what is known as an indirect method of hypnosis, which uses gentle suggestion rather than strong or forceful coercion. Ericksonian Hypnotherapy respects the experiences of the client and builds an atmosphere of comfort and openness. Practitioners like Elizabeth, are trained to put themselves in the client's shoes. Enabling the client to fully relax, Elizabeth Cessna is better able to treat these conditions and get positive results in just three sessions.
Where other forms of hypnosis focus on the client entering into a deep trance state, Ericksonian hypnotherapy focuses on the unconscious mind by way of a light trance. We call a light trance, Intentionally Focused Daydreaming. Clinical application of this method method focuses on communicating with the subconscious to alter a client's habits, whether mental or behavioral, so that he or she can overcome a number of obstacles including overeating, fear, stress, smoking, anxiety, relationship problems, making poor life choices, and much more.
During a session you will enter into a light trance state. A light trance is a form of Intentionally Focused Daydreaming. Recall a time when you've done something and felt like you were on autopilot. You're not asleep, but rather your subconscious mind takes over your consciousness. Here, through the power of gentle suggestion, Elizabeth is able to access the triggers for anxiety, doubt, fear, etc. Those emotions and experiences which are holding you back and keeping you from attaining your goals are gently addressed and in just three sessions you are able to take back your life.

Client Testimonial: I love my husband but several years ago I lost my feelings of attraction for him. We had a decent marriage, but lack of intimacy was pulling us apart from each other. Doing some meaningful work with Elizabeth using clinical hypnotherapy has turned our marriage completely around. My feelings of passion have returned and my husband and I now experience a renewed feeling of deep emotional connection. -- Emily J.
