Are you one of the millions of people suffering from anxiety and depression, or PTSD?


Did You Know That Hypnosis and NLP Are Viable Treatment Options?

Almost half of those who struggle with mental health disorders will turn to unhealthy solutions to cope with the pain of an untreated mental health condition.

On top of that, almost 60% of adults have a difficult time losing weight and keeping it off. In many cases, all of these adverse conditions feed into each other, making each one worse.

If you’re currently struggling with one of these conditions or even a combination of them, I understand the pain and frustration of trying to find a solution that works for you. For many people, conventional medicine and treatment methods either outright don’t work, or they cause harmful, painful side effects.

  • Medications for depression, anxiety, and PTSD can worsen suicidal thoughts, cause dry mouth, weight gain, problems sleeping, and trouble maintaining libido.
  • Long, mandatory stays in a treatment center can be financially or logistically out-of-reach for many people, and can even mean the loss of employment.
  • For millions of adults, exercise and diet changes aren’t enough to keep the weight off for good.

When the supposed “cure” is worse than the disease, then what options do you have?

Fortunately, there is a solution that can work for anyone. Hypnosis and NLP do not cause adverse side effects that are common with conventional treatment methods for mental health conditions, or the struggle to lose weight and keep it off.

No more dry mouth or worsened suicidal thoughts. No more fear of losing your job while you undergo months-long treatments. And stubborn weight? It’s gone for good.

While many conventional treatment methods for these conditions don’t enable you to have much control over the process, NLP and hypnosis are self-directed, and solutions are highly tailored to your needs as an individual.

What are hypnosis and NLP, and how can they help you feel and look better?

Hypnosis is a natural state of being. In fact, you, and millions of people like you, experience natural hypnotic states every day.

Have you ever been driving to work and once you reached your destination, you couldn’t exactly remember how you got there? Ever been watching TV and didn’t hear or even notice your phone ringing, even though it was sitting right next to you? These are only a few examples of the light states of hypnosis you experience naturally.

When undergoing hypnosis for therapeutic reasons with the help of a trained hypnotherapist, the process is referred to as “hypnotherapy.”

Hypnosis, however, is not:

  • Mind control
  • A loss of control
  • A way to put you to sleep
  • A way to control you
  • A way to get you to do something you wouldn’t usually do
  • Hypnosis is something that you choose to do. Nobody, not even a trained hypnotherapist, can make you do or say something under a hypnotic state that you wouldn’t be comfortable doing or saying.

Think of it this way. A switch gets flipped at your house, and the power goes out. You need to check the breaker box. It’s dark down in the basement. Think of a hypnotherapist as your flashlight, but you’re the one leading the way to the breaker box, checking the breakers, and turning the power back on.

Everything in a hypnosis session is under your control. A hypnotherapist is your helper, not your controller.

How can hypnosis help you?

Everyone’s experiences in life are different, and they can significantly influence the way a person thinks about themselves and the world around them.

Did you have a difficult childhood, or maybe you experienced a traumatic event when you were young? These things can inform your belief system. If you, deep down, tell yourself the world is a dangerous place, this deeply held, prevailing belief will influence your behaviors and the choices you make – decisions which can be detrimental to your health and stability. In your fully conscious state, you don’t even realize that these metaphors for life are influencing your actions.

Because everyone’s experiences are different, there is no right or wrong answer when it comes to people’s deeply held beliefs. But what hypnosis does is help you to uncover your beliefs and the metaphors you’re using that influence your actions. If these beliefs and actions are detrimental to your health, then with hypnosis, you have the power to change them for the better!

NLP, or neuro-linguistic programming, is the language of your mind.

NLP is based on the connection between your neurological processes, the words you use, and the actions you take. Different parts of the human brain and our varying states of mind directly influence how we communicate and act. The “linguistic” part of NLP refers to our states of mind that we convey either through our words, or body language. “Programming” refers to our power to change our physical and mental states.

A therapist who is trained in neuro-linguistic programming knows how these different parts are structured in the brain. The therapist can help you tap into these programs and processes through language, and thus, help you alter your actions to help you achieve your goals.

DAVID JARRELLCertified Master Practitioner of NLP & Certified Practitioner of Hypnosis
My passion is helping other people meet and exceed their personal and professional goals in life. For some, that means finding peace in difficult circumstances; for others, it’s finding the motivation and drive to make important changes in their lives. Whatever the situation is, I believe we have all the necessary tools already within us, to change the way we think and the way we act and move into alignment with our core beliefs and values. Research shows that 95% of our behaviors are automatically programmed in our subconscious mind by the time we are 35, which means that trying to make changes at the conscious level can be like beating a dead horse. Hypnotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) are amazing tools for enabling us to have direct contact with our sub-conscious mind, which is where all lasting change takes place.

How does NLP work?

NLP is a way to read between the lines. Often, people will say one thing but mean another. In many cases, the words a person says do not match up with their body language. Someone can say they are “fine” after hearing discouraging news, but their facial expressions can indicate their displeasure through a frown or something else. NLP helps someone understand the nuances behind thoughts, words, and actions and how to use better methods of communication to alter harmful or detrimental behavior.

  • You’ll learn how to build rapport and use better communication methods with others when you undergo NLP therapy.
  • You’ll learn how to use your senses for quicker, more effective communication methods.
  • NLP therapy will enable you to stay focused on your goals and avoid negative thinking patterns.
  • NLP will assist you with learning how to be flexible when on the path to achieving your goals.

NLP and hypnosis are proven and effective ways for helping people with many painful, adverse conditions where conventional medicine has failed. What other conditions can hypnosis and NLP treat?

  • Anxiety treatment
  • Depression treatment
  • PTSD
  • Weight loss
  • Self-sabotage
  • Problems with relationships
  • Stress-management
  • Self-esteem
  • Phobias

And much more.
