Hypnosis and Teenage Depression

In HYPNOSIS by Jon Miles

When Rosemarie’s daughter, Emily, began suffering from acute bouts of depression and anxiety as a seventh-grade student in the fall of 2014, Rosemarie sought various forms of traditional and non-traditional therapies for her daughter. During a two-year period, Rosemarie took Emily to a psychiatrist, a psychologist, a counselor, a social worker, a chiropractor and even a Reiki Master. Emily’s condition improved to an extent under the care of these professionals but she could never pull herself out of a prolonged depression, and as the years passed, Emily began to believe that she would just have to live with major depression as a part of her life.

In NATIONAL HYPNOSIS by Jon Miles

Connie Jackson never had trouble taking a test until she encountered the PMP (Project Management Professional) certification. Connie took the test for the first time in December of 2012 and again in January of 2014 and failed both times, developing a deep-seated fear of the four-hour test in the process. “It became a phobia,” says Connie, a government contractor. “I let it run my life. I did not want anything to do with the PMP again. But I knew that in order to move my career forward and to be competitive, I needed that (PMP) certification.” Connie decided to take the test a third and final time. And although she spent many hours studying, her anxieties took over as the test date approached, creating a profound mental block that threatened to sabotage her efforts. On the day before the test, Connie took a chance and contacted Cynthia Miles, co-owner of …

What is Negative Self Talk?

In HYPNOSIS, NATIONAL HYPNOSIS by Jon Miles

The Inner Critic. That little voice in your head.  All that negative stuff people and society hypnotized you to believe. “I can’t believe I…” “Why did I…?” “I should be….” Fill in the blank. Always something you’re not. This voice is harsh. It’s always critical. But frankly it’s just not true.  It fact it’s been installed in your head like bad shag carpet. It’s the product of negative thoughts emanating from some other time, ruining your now time. It drives you much more than you think and there has been a great deal written about it in popular online press, and even medical websites. Sometimes you can almost hear it out loud in your head. But there is hope. You can get it out. However all the well meaning to-do lists in the world don’t work because there is something very important you the reader need to know. YOU CAN NOT REMOVE SOMETHING BY LOGIC, THAT …

*DISCLAIMER: Results may vary from person to person. Hypnotherapy is not a replacement for medical care. All of your care should be supervised by your doctor. I had a client who came to me for her fear of going to the dentist. Her fear was so bad she had to take a tranquilizer to even make the call for an appointment.  That is some serious fear.  Scheduled for a root canal, she was beside herself with anxiety until she had a session with me. Her success was amazing permanent and complete.

Health or Hype? Kids Undergoing Hypnosis

In NATIONAL HYPNOSIS by Jon Miles

Excerpted from KHOU.com. Some parents say it s made all the difference with their children, and for them seeing results is believing. The treatment involves relaxing music, soothing surroundings, and soft spoken words. It is intended to be a peaceful place conducive to healthy hypnosis. “A lot of people think of hypnosis as staged hypnosis because that’s what they’ve seen on TV or they’ve gone to a show, says Esmerelda Gonzalez. We have to ensure them that we’re not going to make them quack like a duck and that you know — and we have ethics.” Little Julissa’s mom says math was a difficult area for her daughter not because she didn’t know how to do it but just because she didn’t have faith in herself. Hypnosis has helped, however. The treatments have also helped kids with problems like nail biting. For other parents, however, if anything it takes the …
