   Many people ask, “Is hypnosis good for…?” and the answer is always, “YES!” Hypnosis is a remarkable tool for any behavioral malaise whether it’s smoking, over eating, biting your nails, phobias, etc.  Sydney Garrett Hayes, CHt works extensively with individuals who wish to live a healthier lifestyle and supplies clients with hypnosis, a healthy eating regimen and diet suggestions along with juicing recipes to ensure improvement to your health.

   Hypnotherapy can sometimes resonate negatively because there are so many skeptics. However, with education and giving hypnotherapy and honest chance, you will come to understand the endless benefits it can have on your life.

   Sydney Garrett Hayes CHt has been a hypnotherapist since 2008 and is certified by the International Association of Counselors and Therapists. She believes hypnotherapy is all about being well because your subconscious always wants what is best for you. Our natural instinct is to allow our conscious mind to dictate our lives and emotions, and we tell ourselves our fears are rational and logical. Hypnotherapy is a safe, pleasing, relaxing release for phobias, release of a traumatic event that has set you back, when you need motivation, to relax before a big event and even weight loss. When you go to see Sydney for a session, you will find it to be one of the most relaxing experiences where all the stress you carry around is immediately released, and will wake up feeling positive and emotionally renewed.

   Sydney is skilled at helping you relax and feel at ease allowing your subconscious to reveal what is best for you in your life. It is comparable to when you drive home, and once your there, you have no idea how you actually go there. Your subconscious got you there safely. You are never asleep, rather in a state of complete relaxation, and this is an incredible tool to rid our mind of what Sydney calls the “negative tapes” we constantly replay saying “we can’t”. Sydney also teaches self hypnosis which is a great life skill in that it helps you relax and meditate under stressful situations.

   Life is an uphill battle. We have fears, trauma, overeating tendencies, smoking habits, etc. If you are personally motivated to change your life’s journey, you must see hypnotherapist Sydney Garret Hayes CHt. She will steer your life in a more positive direction achieving happiness and well being.

   Sydney is not only a hypnotherapist, but an herbalist and French trained chef and has a vast knowledge of health and nutrition. Hypnosis is perfect for weight loss. Hypnosis actually addresses the addiction a person has regarding food. Sugary, salty and unhealthy foods are often times used to pacify what is going on mentally. If you are eating pre-processed foods, these foods have little to no nutritional value so you are filling yourself with empty calories and it probably seems like you are hungry all the time. Through hypnosis the motivation is given to eat only healthy foods, to crave healthy foods and water only. It will motivate you to give up eating junk food, soda, and eating out at fast food establishments. Within no time you will begin to look and feel incredible. Sydney is helping people get rid of negativity in their lives and moving their mind, body and spirit in a happier more peaceful direction.
