  • Hypnotherapists do not heal others. They are facilitators to help others help themselves. A desire for change is the first step. - Julie Brewer, CHt, HBCE  (Certified Hypnotherapist, HypnoBirthing Certified Educator)

What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis as a therapeutic technique.

The term "hypnosis" is derived from the Greek word hypnos, which means, "sleep."  It is not actually sleep at all, but more of a hyper-awareness.

Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state experienced every day.  It can be compared to daydreaming when you tune out most of the stimuli around you and are fully and solely focused on the matter at hand. We have all had the experience of driving and becoming very focused on what is ahead on the road then all of the sudden we realize we are speeding.  Or reading a book and losing yourself in it only to realize hours have passed. These are examples of a hypnotic-dreamlike state.

Julie is a gifted and compassionate practitioner.

I came to her because I felt like I was stuck in my life. There was no movement toward any of my goals and I'd all but lost any "desires".  I was in a state that felt close to hopelessness.  

Julie was able to hold a very safe space for me to have the necessary information and awareness come up so I could move forward again.  I'm happy to say that I'm no longer stuck and starting to have those lovely trickles of desire to keep me expanding my ever-evolving self.  

Thank you Julie!
