I had no experience with hypnosis, my opinions only garnered like most people from TV and the movies. So, it was with quite a bit of trepidation and skepticism that I met with Ginger Summa. She very calmly and intelligently informed me what hypnosis is and isn’t, what the process would be so as to alleviate any nervousness or fears I might have about the session (we all have preconceived fears and misconceptions of the process!), and what I might or might not experience, what to expect, and how this would impact me during and after the session.
The idea alone that she would get me to relax was hard to believe, my day and life being so busy and hectic like most of us. But the session seemed to go by so quickly and amazingly, I just was super and deeply relaxed, listening to her and talking with her the whole time. When it was over, felt like I had just had the longest vacation ever, like I had just gotten up from a beach somewhere with no worries or concerns. Being so relaxed actually made me laugh out loud- who knew I could be that chill! Amazingly hypnosis is truly just a deep relaxation process allowing you to deal with or concentrate on issues, therapeutic and invigorating, at least for me.
Ginger explained that one time isn’t usually all it can take to deal with an issue, with some people going back many times or some just once or twice more (as it turned out I did.) But I left with a strategy and game plan for how to deal with anything that might trigger me wanting to go back to my old ways, and having tools to use on my own was incredibly supportive and empowering.
All my old ideas about hypnosis have been vanquished and Ginger just rocks at making you feel safe, secure, relaxed and in control. If she could only bottle it, I would have some after 5 PM every day! Ginger gives new meaning to the term “happy hour!”
