1. Hypnosis may be used to add something to your life that is missing. Maybe you would like to develop a personal exercise program but lack the motivation to do so. Hypnosis could be used to help you build a powerful burning desire to exercise.
2. Hypnosis may be used to take something away you don’t want. For instance, you might be interested in stopping smoking. A skilled therapist can help you lose interest in smoking and change your self-image into that of a non-smoker.
3. It may be used to release you from irrational fears and other forms of limiting beliefs. As an illustration, suppose that you have a beautiful voice and would love to sing publicly, but are afraid of the audience. Hypnosis could be used to release you from the bondage of your fears regardless of the source, allowing you to become the person that you have always been inside.
