Hypnotherapy

I love helping my clients release blockages that hold them back from achieving their goals, but realized the value of creating new associations within the subconscious mind. My curiosity eventually led to my enrollment at the Hypnosis Motivation Institute’s Nationally Accredited College of Hypnotherapy.

I've learned so many wonderful tools to assist people with empowerment and personal transformation. I have had the honor of working directly with the director of the institute and key senior staff instructors to learn to integrate my clinical hypnotherapy skills into my current practice.

See how hypnotherapy can help you discover your inner resources for powerful and lasting change.

Consults are required prior to all hypnotherapy sessions.

There are two key concepts for understanding why hypnosis is such an important tool for

creating life changes.

Homeostasis:

Homeostasis is our innate unconscious drive to “stay the same”, that is to say resist all changes at a subconscious level.  While we may desire a change in our feelings, reactions or habits, at a deeper level our subconscious defense mechanisms seek to preserve the familiar, resisting efforts to change. While talking, planning, discussion, and rational understanding of behavior are all important concepts, they do not address our subconscious need to sabotage our success and/or efforts to change.

Neuroplasticity: 

On a personal, spiritual and behavioral level, neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to change throughout an individual’s life. Our ability to changes beliefs, emotional responses and behavioral habits is dependent on the flexibility of or our mind.  Hypnosis, Therapeutic Imagery, NLP, mindfulness and more are the tools used in hypnotherapy to facilitate the internal, emotional, behavioral flexibility need to overcome homeostasis and release our subconscious needs to sabotage our success or resist our desires for change.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hypnosis?


Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation in which the subconscious mind is extraordinarily receptive to positive thoughts and suggestions. Through hypnosis, your behavior can be modified to benefit you by replacing the old beliefs or behaviors that you no longer need or want with the new ones you desire. Each of us naturally enters hypnosis several times every day while watching TV, or even while driving long distances.




Why Choose Hypnotherapy?


By harnessing the power of your own subconscious mind, Hypnotherapy is often quick and effective in resolving personal issues and improving focus and performance, whether at work or play. With hypnotherapy, you can effectively replace limiting behaviors with attitudes and actions that promote growth and success.




Can I Be Hypnotized?


Yes. Everyone has the ability to be hypnotized.




What is a Hypnotic Experience Like?


Hypnosis is a natural state of profound physical and mental relaxation. Hypnosis uses guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness. The person's attention is so focused while in this state that anything going on around the person is temporarily blocked out or ignored. In this naturally occurring state, a person may focus their attention -- with the help of a trained therapist -- on specific thoughts or tasks.




What Happens if I don’t Come Out of Hypnosis?


It is impossible to be stuck in the state of hypnosis. All states of hypnosis are formally ended by the Hypnotherapist.




In Hypnosis, Will I Do Anything I Don’t Want to Do or Say Anything I Don’t Want to Say?


Hypnotherapy is not mind control or brainwashing. You cannot and will not ever be compelled to do or say anything under hypnosis that is in conflict with your personal, ethical standards and/or desires.




What Sort of Things is Hypnotherapy Good For?


Hypnotherapy is useful for a wide range of issues. It's great for things such as habit control, addictions, negative thought patterns, anxiety, and sleep problems. It is also a powerful support for health and wellbeing in general or specific wellness concerns.

**COVID-19 update: I use a hospital-grade disinfectant for my biofeedback equipment and am spending extra time sanitizing hard surfaces in between clients. Since sessions tend to run from 60 to 90 minutes, I have things set up so that we can maintain the 6ft social distancing recommended during the length of the session, as well as masks. If you have any signs of illness, please reschedule your appointment. I will also be asking all of my clients to wash their hands before sessions.  If you feel any level of discomfort coming in, and would prefer to reschedule, this is a reminder that certain services can be conducted remotely, from the comfort of your home.

"Working with Jennifer has been so supportive, for myself and for my teenage son. The biofeedback system is so gentle and nurturing for our nervous systems, and the emotional support Jennifer provides has been key for both of us to deepen our own self-understanding and connection with others. We have learned so much about how to use flower essences to support our healing processes. I highly recommend working with Jennifer, she is such a gift to our community!"
" I have done several hypnotherapy sessions with Jennifer Burrows, both in-person and via zoom, and they have been extremely helpful in removing blocks and helping me access powerful truths and healing within myself. In addition, I have benefited greatly from the Body Code work I've done with Jennifer both independent of our hypnotherapy sessions and also in combination. I have found that releasing specific blocks prior to hypnotherapy has helped accelerate the session and really see and feel changes within. I highly recommend Jennifer and ALL of her amazing work!"
"My biofeedback sessions with Jennifer have been so effective overall. I started going because I was drowning in grief and I’ve seen immense improvement in that area and many others. She is both informative and very careful to work gently to just the right amount of adjustment needed. I’m still learning about all biofeedback entails but am so thankful to have found her."
