Hypnotherapist Paul W. Smith, CCHt, proves the efficacy of hypnotherapy each time he helps clients to quit smoking, lose weight, or remember where they left the remote. Using only his words, Smith guides patients into a deep state of concentrated relaxation—hypnosis—where the mind becomes hyper responsive to ideas or images. As Smith taps into the unconscious mind, patients retain full control; they can withhold information, respond yes or no, and recall everything they recount. With repeated sessions, patients can gain mastery over their state of awareness and thereby correct behaviors that undermine healthy living.
