What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the practice of psychotherapy with a client who is in the hypnotic altered state of consciousness. Hypnotherapy is a powerful way to access the source of distress, like depression and anxiety, and for people to reconnect with dissociated emotions and disowned parts of themselves. Hypnotherapy helps therapists and client get closer to the source of a client’s issues by opening the doorway to their subconscious mind.
In addition, Shelley has worked with non-profit organizations for over 20 years specializing in ‘at risk’ youth development, leadership, and administrative roles. She has experience in both child protection and foster care systems and recently she worked in community mental health for adults and youth in the Columbus, OH area.
She engages the client ‘where they are at’ and aids the client in gaining perspective on their life path and developing a path forward for success. Shelley has lectured at colleges and developed various programs to assist counselors and teachers in working with a team approach to meet the needs of youth.
