Anxiety Free Me
Growing up, Chris Hrabovsky was often told he should become either a radio personality or a hypnotist because of his mellow baritone voice. After a stint as a yoga teacher, he eventually chose the latter, opening his own hypnotherapy practice in 2006. Today, he draws on his multidisciplinary background in Kundalini yoga, neurolinguistic programming, and movement-based Brain Gym techniques to enhance his treatments, which are designed to free clients from the effects of painful or stressful past events.
Chris believes that many of these effects are rooted in a kind of sense memory. During times of high stress or fear, the reasoning goes, even the tiniest sensory inputs, such as the sound of a dog barking, can be deeply imprinted on the mind. When similar sensations reoccur, it can trigger seemingly spontaneous anxiety, even long after the traumatic event. The hypnotist's role, Chris says, is to "wake up" the subconscious, so it realizes that in the present moment there is no reason to fear.
To this end, he starts out most sessions with exercises meant to center the client's consciousness in the present moment and that can also be used to soothe stress in the client's daily life. Only at the end of each session does Chris hypnotize his clients, bringing them into a deep state of semiconsciousness so he can make direct suggestions to the subconscious. These techniques, in the course of multiple sessions, can be tailored to pursue a wide variety of goals including working out deep relational conflicts, quitting smoking, and losing weight.
