Hypnotic Relaxation Therapy (or HRT)

Involves the use of relaxation, mental imagery, and suggestion for a therapeutic purpose.

HRT has been demonstrated to have a wide range of benefits, from simply improving symptoms or difficulties, to completely eliminating them.

Most people describe a hypnotic induction as a pleasant experience during which they feel focused and absorbed in the hypnotic experience.

We will work together to structure the session based on your comfort, preferences, and your own personal therapy goal(s).

Of Ceil Mattingly, one recent client commented:

Ceil made me feel comfortable instantly. She creates a very warm, relaxed, open environment. She helped me work through some difficult aspects of my past and connect the dots to present patterns that were holding me back. If you are thinking about reaching out to a therapist, I recommend Ceil wholeheartedly.”
