Frequently Asked Questions.

What is Hypnosis? Hypnosis is a state of focused attention. The person in hypnosis is not asleep nor is he or she awake. It is an in between state of mind during which the hypnotist directs the client’s focus and speaks to the client’s subconscious mind while the conscious mind does not interfere or object to what is being said. For example, when driving to work or school, you often do not remember every red light or turn you make, yet you get to your workplace or school. When driving down the highway, talking to your friends, you miss the exit because you were involved in a conversation with one of your friends sitting in the backseat. Your subconscious was in control. You consciously, so not wanted to miss that exit. But you did! And, now you will have to drive another 8 miles before you can make a U-Turn. Say thank you to your subconscious. You were in hypnosis! Textbook Definition of Hypnosis: Hypnosis is essentially a psycho-physiological state of aroused attentive receptive focal concentration with a corresponding diminution in the peripheral. When thinking moves towards feeling, hypnosis is sure to follow.

Is hypnosis safe for children? Yes! Absolutely! Children are in hypnosis more often than you think. Young children go into hypnosis when they watch television or play a video game. They watch a movie and get scared even though what they’re watching is merely a cartoon! Through hypnosis, children can get rid of fears, anxious feelings and become more able to concentrate and focus. Often, a combination of events can create false feelings that lead to inaccurate conclusions. We learn what is really going on in the subconscious mind, when in hypnosis. With this information, appropriate suggestions are made to build confidence, self-esteem and to remove and eliminate those subconscious feelings that inhibit the desired behavior, feeling or attitude. In hypnosis, we learn about the feelings that are inhibiting us, whether these feelings are correct or unfounded. This is true for children as it is for adults. Hypnosis is totally safe. It is simply a way to make important and difficult changes from within ourselves. Major Mindset Hypnosis can help children and teens with academic challenges, behavior and attitude issues, migraines, headaches and other medical conditions (with a medical referral), anxious or nervous feelings and many other concerns. Parents are usually encouraged to remain with their children during the hypnosis session. general Read more

Hypnosis-Counseling is never a substitute for medical care and, by law, is not medical care. Major Mindset Hypnosis gets results — it’s not therapy!
