It’s often believed that our conscious calls the shots.
Consciousness is a state of awareness of our surroundings, sense of self and internal feelings and thoughts.
However, scientific research shows that what lies beneath is truly king—the subconscious and unconscious.
These areas of the mind control emotions, beliefs, behavior, motivation, automatic skills, our dream state and general thinking processes. They determine our decision-making.
Psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud compared the mind to an iceberg. What we are fully aware of sits above water, like the times we decide to grab a bite to eat out of hunger pangs. The subconscious (or preconscious) lies right below the waterline. It’s made of thoughts and beliefs waiting to be brought to a conscious state, such as recalling the route home after you leave work or summoning your cell phone number to pass on to a new friend. In the dark depths of the water is the unconscious, which is filled with beliefs, behaviors, instincts, urges, and thoughts completely out of any awareness. It holds the memory of all our experiences—triumphant or traumatic.
It’s been said this dynamic duo controls at least 90% percent of our lives!
But … so what?
So to successfully modify behavior we have to access these rarely tapped parts of our psyche.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming is a model for positive communication and effective change. It uses influential change-making methodology from “The Mother of Family therapy,” Virginia Satir; renowned American Psychiatrist, Psychologist and Hypnotist, Milton Erickson; and German-born Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist Fritz Perls, who coined the term Gestalt Therapy, among other visionaries.
Hypnosis is a deep state of relaxation that allows you the ability to focus better and problem solve. Through the use of suggestion, you will be able to access your imagination and explore the possibilities that exist to overcome stuck states and to alter behavior and mindset. Don’t be fooled, you have complete control over this process. Unlike stage hypnosis, therapeutic hypnosis is designed with YOU in mind. There’s no manipulation, which means that you contemplate solutions through your own unconscious.
