Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy (HCL) is a relaxed state of consciousness that releases the psychological shock and painful emotions that get stuck in the nervous system.

I have found that this is one of the most direct, effective, and powerful ways to become free of past trauma and pain

A typical session of HCL begins with a problem area you would like to work on. You are always in control and aware of your experience and surroundings as you participate in this healing process. Relaxing music and my words will gently guide you into a deep state of peace and serenity, where you're able to go back in time to the source of your presenting problem. During this method of hypnosis, I'll encourage you to release deeply painful, unexpressed emotions in a safe place. By the end of the session, you'll be able to live by new, corrective conclusions about yourself, and feel free from acting out old beliefs and behaviors. I'll provide you with a written record of the positive changes and new decisions you made during the session.

HCL is useful for healing psychological shock and traumaPTSD, abuse, anxiety, depression, addictions, anger issues, and unwanted relationship patterns.  Sessions last 90 minutes to 2 hours, and because the work takes place in the subconscious mind where the original trauma is stored, healing occurs faster than traditional psychotherapy alone.

HCL was developed by Diane Zimberoff, founder of The Wellness Institute in Issaquah, Washington. I completed a two-year advanced training on this method at The Wellness Institute and am certified as an Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist.
