My name is Diane Reile. I am certified in Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy and am also studying NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming).
About five years ago, I started on this journey of changing my thoughts to change my life. Before I started to realize I had a choice of how I wanted to feel, I let my thoughts control me. I was buffering quite heavily with alcohol. I was having a lot of anxiety which turned into full-blown panic attacks. I lived like this for most of my life, but as I got older the anxiety increased. I was living my life for everyone else. I didn’t know who I was. I grew up in a home with an alcoholic father and a very dysfunctional, codependent family.
What is hypnosis, and how does it work?
Hypnosis is an induction state of consciousness in which a person is highly responsive to suggestions or directions. It’s used to recover suppressed memories or to allow modifications of behavior and habits. It is a very focused state of attention with reduced peripheral awareness. In this state of mind, considered deep relaxation but hyper focused, we can respond to suggestions.
