Many people seek help to make changes in their behavior and with habits, they want to get rid of or ease. Hypnotherapy can help with those transitions and through regular sessions with a certified professional hypnotist, you can achieve those desired adjustments and overcome what is preventing you from doing so.
Living in Spokane, or the surrounding areas, you've probably heard of Positive Changes Hypnosis Centers and are seeking help from them. Unfortunately, they are no longer serving the community and closed in 2017. But, many former employees and hypnosis professionals went on to take what they've learned to continue helping people. Whether it be behavior modification, help with weight-loss, or stopping smoking. Positive Changes may be closed, but the great work they did continues.
Intentional Hypnosis was founded by a former Positive Changes professional whose skills were further developed while working there and is dedicated to carrying on that torch. Although their great efforts and wonderful work are longer available, that doesn't mean seeking help via hypnosis in your life is gone. We offer many programs that help to outline what change you want and guide you through it to success. Let's go over some of the ways Intentional Hypnosis carries the torch that Positive Changes in Spokane once held.
There are numerous programs at Intentional Hypnosis that continue what Positive Changes did for the Spokane area. From helping with weight-loss to assistance in smoking cessation and more general behavior changes. Let's cover some of the programs we have that have taken up the mantle of the Positive Changes Hypnosis Center:
Change Agents One and Two:
These programs are to help identify resistant behaviors and discover successful new behaviors to bring about the desired transformation that you seek. Through coaching and strategy sessions, Intentional Hypnosis helps to adjust and through hypnosis, overcome what is preventing you from achieving your goals. These are two separate programs, the former has more hours of hypnosis and is supported by Neuro-tracking processes which are guided visualization intensive. But, both courses are tailored to the outcomes and developments you describe to us. Every client is different and though many techniques can apply to different situations, no one is a catch-all.
Smoking Cessation 2 Session Program
This program is designed to help you stop smoking in two sessions. They are scheduled 5-10 days apart and the first has you describe what triggers your smoking urges as well as helping to define what you want by quitting smoking. With guided visualization, breathing, and tactile anchoring techniques we empower you to ease stressful situations and to address the triggers to make the improvement you're after.
Smoking isn't just a nicotine addiction, it's a behavioral one. By ascertaining what triggers you to smoke we can help fight those triggers and teach more positive behaviors to replace them. Hypnosis doesn't instantly trick you into your changes, it helps to explore the whys and instill the what’s to change your behavior.
One on One Sessions
These two kinds of sessions are more tailored to your desired outcome rather than a program designed for more a more pre-determined goal like to stop smoking.
Individual Hypnosis Session:
During your first session, you'll be creating an Outcome Frame that helps to specify what positive changes you're seeking and what you think is preventing you from obtaining them. Through guided visualization and other hypnosis techniques such as utilizing light and sound technology, we help you to overcome these obstacles.
Personal Coaching Session:
This session should follow an Individual Hypnosis session to further deepen the work initially done. Think of it as cementing the positive changes you're looking for. Two weeks after your initial session, you will explore new behaviors and identify areas of resistance that have come up. After discussing any new information and behaviors popping up, a free form hypnosis session or relaxation technique may follow.
These two sessions are based on the goals you've set and your desired outcome frame. After all, no habit needing change gets a cookie-cutter path to removal.
Be the Positive Change
Hypnosis isn't an immediate fix-all, but a useful and beneficial tool for people to become their own best version of themselves. Many felt a sense of loss when the Positive Changes Hypnosis Center left Spokane and we are here to help those who still want to pursue these life-affirming changes. Through Intentional Hypnosis's programs, you can still uncover what is stopping you from being the best version of yourself and becoming an example of the great work Positive Changes once did.
