Hypnotherapy or Clinical Hypnosis
According to the American Society of Clinicial Hypnosis, "Hypnosis is a state of inner absorption, concentration and focused attention. It is like using a magnifying glass to focus the rays of the sun and make them more powerful. Similarly, when our minds are concentrated and focused, we are able to use our minds more powerfully." Clinical hypnosis is used at CHOICES in a variety of ways in order to assist clients. It may be used to help the individual have a greater sense of internal safety and control as well as to encourage the imagination to take part in problem solving and conflict resolution.
