Breaking the cycles that hold us back.

We all have many goals in our lives that we repeatedly tell ourselves that we are going to accomplish; we just never get around to accomplishing them. Conversely, we all have habits that we keep telling ourselves that we are not going to do anymore, but we find ourselves doing them over and over again.

Breaking the cycles that hold us back

We all have goals in our lives that we repeatedly tell ourselves that we are going to accomplish; we just never get around to accomplishing them. We fall into the same patterns of negative thinking, get out of a bad relationship just to get into the same dynamics in our next relationship, and hold ourselves back from getting what we want in life, even though we promised ourselves that we do things differently this time.

A different approach

Dr. Lavelle utilizes Ericksonian hypnosis which is considered the art of using meditative techniques and language to help a person move forward. Instead of “direct suggestion”, which most of us resist, this method helps you get in touch with that part of you that wants to change and quiets any thoughts that get in the way of making that change.
Every person has the ability to change their lives in a meaningful way. Most people, however, just need a little bit of help finding effective ways to bring about those changes. Through this method, you will uncover the unconscious reasons you fail to reach your goals and develop effective strategies for bringing about those changes. We encourage you to browse our website to find information on hypnosis and integrative therapy to see if these methods are right for you.
