More people are using holistic approaches – often in coordination with traditional therapies – than ever before. Therapists at The Child and Family Counseling Center of Westlake are experienced in a variety of holistic therapies that can help you to meet your goals.
Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy places you in control of the therapeutic process and can provide a deep sense of healing. Therapists at The Child and Family Counseling Center of Westlake have completed additional training and certification through The Wellness Institute.
This intervention uses a combination of approaches to help clients to identify the source of unhealthy thought/behavior patterns in the subconscious. Having identified events that led to unwanted thought/behavior patterns, the therapist facilitates the release of emotional energy contained in the experiences while guiding clients to take control of their experiences and reframing unhealthy patterns .
During hypnotherapy, your therapist will help you to enter a trance state, similar to the natural relaxation that happens just before you fall asleep. Throughout this intervention, you will remain completely conscious and aware, but experience increased suggestibility to positive intervention. Your therapist will guide you with the help of positive suggestions and imagery to help you cope with concerns and issues ranging from anxiety and stress to pain management.
Holistic approaches have been found to be effective in treating a number of concerns, including:
- Anxiety and stress
- General Dissatisfaction and Unhappiness
- Grief and loss
- Pain management
- Psychological and emotional trauma
- Smoking Cessation
- Transitional life experiences
- Weight loss
