Creating a natural bridge between body and mind, clinical hypnotherapy offers a non-pharmacological process for pain relief, overcoming stress and sleeplessness, and replacing self-sabotaging behaviors for good.
In-person sessions are available in Seattle, and worldwide online. If you’re ready to make a change for the better, talk with Tracy Barrett Adams to find out whether hypnotherapy is right for you.
If you’re holding the weight of anxious feelings, hypnotherapy can help. Teach your mind and body to handle overwhelming emotions in a healthy way, and activate positive skills and resources that will help you think more clearly and focus more easily.
Hypnosis can lower perception of pain sensations and intensity, and create a sense of ease and trust in your body. Examples of painful issues that often respond particularly well to hypnotherapy: headaches (migraines), nerve pain, digestive issues (IBS).
Are you struggling with sleep? Using hypnosis to shift wakeful patterns has several components, all working together to release whatever’s keeping you awake while you create a new way of thinking about, feeling, and experiencing rest.
Will power failing you? Hypnosis can help you tune in to your body’s signals in a new way, as you adjust your appetite, turn off the cravings, and make permanent lifestyle changes that will have you making healthy choices that feel natural and satisfying.
What to Expect
Each session is different, unique for each client, though typically for a first session we’ll begin with talking a bit, getting to know each other and looking at key factors surrounding the issues you want to change. From there, I’ll lead you into hypnosis and we’ll begin the work of creating resolution and empowerment at the unconscious level. Throughout, I will teach you to use simple, effective self-hypnosis tools to reinforce and build on our sessions.
While there is no formula for how many sessions you will need, often goals like stress reduction, test anxiety, sports performance, or improving some sleep issues may require as few as two or three sessions. Issues like fertility, chronic pain, chronic sleeplessness, or permanent weight loss are typically more complex, and will be best served by a series of sessions tailored for your individual needs and timing.
Tracy Barrett Adams
“I have struggled with anxiety and panic attacks for over a decade. I’ve done extensive work that has helped me understand why I struggle in this way, but until meeting Tracy, I had not been able to make a shift towards actually changing the ongoing anxiety. I came to Tracy wanting to work on what I believed to be a fundamental inability to ever truly relax. After our very first session, I started noticing shifts not only in my awareness around relaxation but in supporting myself in ways that allowed relaxation to start happening. I feel not only much less anxiety but, to my surprise, more confidence and trust in myself. Alongside these positive results, working with Tracy herself is just a pleasure. In my work with her, she was so authentically caring and attuned to what I was trying to convey that there were times she was able to reflectively voice things in a way that resonated more closely with my experience than I have ever been able to voice myself! My heartfelt gratitude to her as I continue to slowly unwind from years of tension into a space that feels free and loving and full of possibility.”Melanie

And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time. “
