As I began my journey of becoming a hypnotherapist I constantly heard from many of my instructors the idea of a healed healer. I sat and pondered this idea for awhile. It made complete sense to me that in order to help heal others that one would have to heal themselves. In school we learn many techniques to help our clients by using hypnosis. We practice the techniques on ourselves and use fellow students’ issues so that we can have real life experience. Which in turn works to heal ourselves in the process.


I had my first taste of this a few days into school when I had volunteered for a demonstration in class. I ended up bringing a fear that I had carrying for nearly 13 years into the light. I cried for two hours in front of my class. Letting out all my emotions that I had been bottling up.  Although it was scary being this vulnerable in front of everybody, the experience brought a connection between me and my classmates as they understood the healing process and saw what they would be going through  themselves. I felt an enormous weight lift off  my chest that day, and I haven't thought of it since. Although I believe healing is a lifelong process, in which you are always unfolding new layers, I have taken the first step in healing myself so that I can help others. Through the process and realization of hypnotherapy, I was able to develop a true appreciation and clarity of how I can bring a sense of wholeness to each of my future clients. I now can personally understand the significance of healing. I can see from a broader perspective and when helping others I am able to relate and lead with a clearer mind.


I am noticing every day the positive changes hypnotherapy has brought into my life, as well as in my classmates’ lives. My heart has opened and my mind has become clearer.  I hope that you all will take the chance to grow and heal from the long lasting effects of hypnosis like I and so many others have.
