Although I have chosen to specialize in hypno/fertility and hypno/birthing it in no way takes away from my experience in other areas, which, are as follows:
Having had a long career in the medical field I have a very broad and varied background. Early in my nursing career I began to read Milton Erickson and realized that many of his techniques could be used with the medical treatment offered to the patients. I used this daily in the areas of relaxation and pain control long before I did full time study on how the art of hypnosis could be used as a complimentary adjunct to medical intervention. It opened my mind and I became curious as to how your thoughts and beliefs can influence healing and your ability to address or repress emotional insults to the ego. More importantly, I became aware of the powerful effects that language has. Language has a profound impact on our nervous system. Certain words whether written or spoken, are more loaded with meaning than others although the meaningfulness of a given word will vary from individual to individual. When the same words are reflected back to the person whom you are communicating with, using the same tonality or phrases, you are reactivating the same part of the nervous system and creating a more powerful response. We make sense of the world by processing information from all five senses and creating mental maps of our experiences. When ever we speak or write we are in a sense describing these maps.
