WHY RESOLUTION HYPNOSIS?
BIO - Jeanine Ferritor
Your brain receives approximately 2.5 billion pieces of information per second from the surrounding environment. Your subconscious only allows 2-3 pieces of this information into your physical awareness based on what it has been programmed to seek out in the Universe.
As far back as I can remember, I have always had a mild obsession with the power of the human mind. I believe everything that happens in our lives is a function of what we think and what is programmed into our subconscious minds. Looking back, almost everything I’ve held my attention on in the past ended up happening. Jobs, travel, relationships……If I thought about it, it eventually happened. However, there was something deeper going on. The subconscious mind is the part of us that is doing most of the work for us. In fact, 90% of what we do in our lives is automatic and springs directly from the subconscious which is fed by our thoughts and beliefs. It made sense to me to learn as much as possible on how it works and how we can use it to create the experiences we want.
After 20 years working in a corporate environment, I knew it was time to make a change but wasn’t sure what that change should be. They say when you don’t know what to do next, take any small step in the direction of your dreams. For me that step was to enroll in a program that aligned with my passion for learning about the mind and our ability to use it as a tool to create the results we desire most in our lives.
After studying Hypnotherapy at the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts, I became a Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and opened my own practice. I am dedicated to helping others use the power of their own minds to break down, release and resolve the blocks that hold them back from living the lives they really want.

View what some of our clients have to say about Resolution Hypnosis
"100% wonderful and positive experience. She helped with an issue I've been having for many years and after our session I've felt so much better. Jeanne is very knowledgeable and has a very caring nature and you're made to feel at home and at ease. I highly recommend trying her services. The "Resolution" in her hypnosis is there - that is her philosophy to actually *have* a resolution when you leave her office ( which is peaceful, comfortable and soothing). All you need is an open mind and heart."
"My experience with Jeanine was awesome! I had a goal of changing my relationship with food which I knew was much deeper than knowing what to eat. She was able to assist me in resolving a deep seeded issue that laid deep within my subconscious. Thank You Jeanine! for sharing your gift and helping me move forward."
"I visited Jeanine for weight management. She is a very skillful and talented therapist. The initial consultation was about 90mins (including the 1st session). I was impressed with the time she spent getting to know my issue and assessment she made for my weight management. She narrowed down on various things that triggered my food dependencies and enforced healthy eating habits that were tailored to my need. I walked out of there very relaxed and happy. She also shares a recording of the session so that you can listen to very day. Overall, I was happy with my experience"
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the process of using hypnosis to interact with the subconscious mind in an open-reflective process to create positive change in your life. There are many techniques and many styles and many applications of hypnotherapy. They all have several things in common: (1) a strong desire to change, (2) a state of deeply relaxed focus, and (3) language and visualization in relationship to emotions.
What is Hypnosis?Hypnosis is simply a state of relaxed focus. It is a natural state. In fact, each of us enters such a state - sometimes called a trance state - at least twice a day: once when we are falling asleep, and once when we are waking up. That kind of fuzzy, timeless state between dreaming and awake is a trance state. When a nine-minute snooze-button seems to give you enough time to have an-hour long dream, that's a trance state. There are many other times that people enter a natural state of trance. Driving, watching TV, listening to music, working on a favorite hobby or activity in the "flow" state. These are all "altered states of consciousness," and all are various levels of trance. Trance is normal, natural and common. Some people leave their first hypnotherapy session saying, "I wasn't hypnotized - I knew what was going on the whole time!" Well of course you did! Hypnosis is not a state of amnesia or of no awareness. Just the opposite true, in fact: hypnosis is a state of very heightened awareness and focus. Hollywood has perpetrated many myths about hypnosis, and not remembering anything from the hypnosis session is one of those myths. Only under special circumstances would a person forget everything from a session. Much more can be accomplished when the person undergoing hypnosis remembers everything.
What can't be treated with hypnotherapy?Serious psychiatric or mental health problems are referred to a qualified psychotherapist or psychiatrist. Medical problems with the physical body must always be treated by a physician, who can, at his or her discretion, prescribe hypnotherapy for pain control, hypnoanesthesia or relaxation. Drug addiction, family dynamics disorders, clinical depression and other such problems need to be treated by doctors and psychiatrists, who can, at their discretion, prescribe hypnotherapy as a supplementary treatment.
Will I bark like a dog or cluck like a chicken?Let me guess: you've seen a stage show where a hypnotist made people do all these crazy things. Or, perhaps you have ideas from Hollywood's movies and TV. The stage hypnotist carefully selects his subjects (watch how many volunteers he has sit down), and he chooses people he knows WILL bark like a dog. They will because somewhere inside them is a part that loves to entertain. And they will do it because, deep down inside, they don't believe there is anything wrong with barking like a dog. Hypnosis can not make you do something that is against your morals or ethics. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis, in truth, and no hypnotist can make you do something that you really don't want to do. That's why some people can be hypnotized to stop smoking and yet they still smoke. You have to want the change, agree with the change, and then hypnosis is an instrument for helping make that change better, faster, and permanent.
Will I lose control?This is another Hollywood myth. You always have control, and you can always hear what's going on. Hypnosis is nothing but a state of relaxed deep focus. It is a natural state that you enter at least twice a day (while waking up and while falling asleep!), and probably much more often than that. If at any time you are in trance and you wish to be fully awake, you can just count to yourself "1 - 2- 3" and open your eyes.
My friend tried hypnosis to quit smoking and it didn't work.There is more to changing a serious habit like smoking than just a few hypnotic suggestions, I'm afraid. In the simplest terms, the person must want the change, and they must have a replacement for smoking. Hypnosis can be used to find a healthy, effective replacement, and then it can be used to help flip the subconscious over to the new, healthy habits. While sitting in a room with 50 other people in a seminar, or listening to a stop-smoking CD can work, it is usually much more effective to have a personalized session with a hypnotherapist, who can customize the approach, language and replacement suggestions to match your lifestyle and circumstances.

How is hypnotherapy different than affirmations?Hypnotherapy has the advantage of being able to communicate with the subconscious in a two-way fashion. Affirmations don't facilitate direct responses from the subconscious; they only seek to speak to the subconscious. A post-hypnotic suggestion is also different than an affirmation: effects tend to be more direct, more specific, and more immediate when using post-hypnotic suggestions. Other than that, the language of hypnosis and of affirmations is similar. Both are always expressed in the present tense, and always in the positive. If you ever meet a hypnotherapist that uses the words, "don't smoke" as a direct suggestion, choose a different hypnotherapist!
Isn't Hypnosis dangerous?Myths about hypnosis, perpetuated by Hollywood movies, urban legends and fiction books lead people to think all kinds of things about hypnosis, including that it is somehow dangerous. Some people have heard that you can go into trance and not wake up. Or that the hypnotist can make you do things you don't want to do. These things are untrue. You are always in control, always able to "came back" to full waking state at anytime if you wanted or needed to. The number one job of the subconscious mind is to protect you, and it is always on the job. Of course, you will want to choose a hypnotherapist that has been well trained and that is trustworthy. Select one that gives you confidence. Hypnosis is a safe and beneficial procedure when facilitated by an ethical and trained professional. Do always keep in mind that hypnosis is not a treatment or cure for mental illness, and people suffering from psychosis, suicidal depression, or that are on medications for psychological stability should only be hypnotized by their doctors or psychiatrists or by an experienced hypnotherapist with the client's doctor or psychiatrist present.
