Trauma is an emotional response to a horrific event such as an accident, abuse, rape, or natural disaster. Any shocking or dangerous event someone sees or experiences is a trauma. They may not even realize they’re traumatized. They’ll be in shock, feeling numb and detached – unable to deal with the emotional intensity of what happened.
Fortunately, hypnosis is a powerful tool for dealing with many common types of trauma. In fact, hypnosis and trauma have a long and successful history.
Stacy uses several techniques that can help clients come to terms with their traumatic experiences and enable them to get on with their lives. That’s important because trauma is not a rare or unusual occurrence, and while they might not readily admit there’s a problem, the emotional impact could be immense.

Post Traumatic Stress
Hypnosis is a powerful treatment for PTSD because it treats the issue at it's core: the triggers. Calm the triggers, calm the person.
Because hypnosis is primarily a method for accessing and working with the subconscious, it's perfect for PTSD and countless other issues that originate in some type of trigger or locked away memory.
Hypnotherapy is very effective in helping people who need to lose weight, improve fitness, and wellness. Everyone is different, everyone’s weight problems can have different triggers, therefore, I work with my clients individually to identify and address the underlying causes and thinking patterns behind my client’s weight problem, and I then customize a personalized plan of action. It really doesn't matter if you need to lose only a few pounds or several - once these issues have been identified and addressed the weight will drop off.
Hypno-birthing is a birthing method that uses self-hypnosis and relaxation techniques to help a woman feel physically, mentally and spiritually prepared and reduce her awareness of fear, anxiety and pain during childbirth. While specific programs differ, my hypno-birthing classes will teach you to practice and use a combination of self-hypnosis, music, visualization, positive thinking and words to relax the body and control sensations during labor.

Through the use of hypnosis an athlete can create an environment in the subconscious mind where stress and relaxation cannot coexist concurrently. For an athlete it is the key to realizing automatic reactions and achieving a hyper focused state during performance. When an athlete is focused and unaware of distracting thoughts his performance is automatic. Being in a relaxed state during play can mean the difference between success and failure. Achieving this paradox is the ultimate goal for facilitating peak sports performance at any level, no matter the age or experience of the player.
