A NOTE FROM ANNE MILLIGAN:



To all of my previous and future clients :
Beginning on MAY 1, 2014, I will be taking a year's sabbatical to complete and publish a book on how to change negative life patterns to more positive patterns or "HABITS."
This book has been "in the works" for years now.


I highly encourage you to purchase and download my
"INTO THE LIGHT" MINDFULNESS MEDITATIONS"
(Learning and practicing FOCUS is a pre-requisite for any real change)!!!

I aso encourage you to visit and "Like" my Facebook page:
GROWING HEALTH AND HAPPINESS (the book will be announced there);
and the following web pages:


Below is a link to my brief introduction to the basics of hypnotherapy.
As you will see when you go through the session, there is no trickery. You will not be "quacking like a duck", as apparently happens on stage shows. This is not a show. The work is for your transformation as a human being. Please, DO NOT watch this on your phone or anywhere else where you need your full attention, such as when driving.
For this to be effective, you need your full attention dedicated to listening to the video.

RESOLVING TO CHANGE:
HOW TO DO IT RIGHT AND MAKE IT LAST!

Anne Milligan. January 1, 2013

Permanent change always starts with a change on the inside. Our perspective makes ALL the difference in the WORLD in terms of whether we are able to really change or just mouth the words. Lately, I've been approaching this by making two columns on a blank piece of paper. One column is titled "Want" and the other column "Need". There is a huge difference between the two. The truth is that, if we are living an authentic life (i.e., not harming anyone), our needs are most likely already met, or will be met when we need them. The "want" is where we get stuck. Our deepest heart's desire was planted there for a reason and it can lead us down the path of our happiest and most authentic self. Often, all we need is a change of perspective if there is a block between our current status and our wants. These are some of the most common blocks to having our "wants" met: 1. A sense of unworthiness and a thought pattern addiction to "less than". 2. An emotional block that needs to be freed in order for there to be a SPACE for something new to move in. Most often this is an attachment to pain and the victim role. THAT is a tough one and many of us do not want to acknowledge that one. We will both ask for help and hold defiantly to the victim role at the same time, as if our LIFE depended on it. This HAS to change in order for anything new to happen. Consider the fact that 90% of our brain cells are currently unused!!!! That doesn't sound like victim, does it? 3. The final block to "wants" is the inability to focus. This is where I have experienced the most potential for change to happen in my own life and the lives of others. We simply must learn to focus. In our current situation, brain research has shown that we use a huge percentage of our visual energy, for example, on scanning the environment for threat. When we perceive constant threat, we cannot grow. We cannot see the blessings and the possibilities that abound in the universe and in ourselves. WE MUST LEARN TO FOCUS AWAY FROM THREAT AND INTO BLESSING. How do we do this while still attached to "victim"? I personally believe that hypnotherapy holds the key. I really do. I have seen it over and over again. I believe this is possible because of the way our mind gravitates toward the most familiar patterns FIRST and only changes those patterns with an intervention that is MORE powerful than the familiar pattern of thought. Hypnosis in the context of therapy helps break the old pattern and recreate a more functional one.





HOW THERAPY BENEFITS YOU:

Do you want to be happy? Do you want to be well and peaceful with yourself and others? Do you suspect that you or someone close to you may have
Clinical Depression?
Are your relationships out of balance? Do you want harmony in your relationships? Have you found yourself struggling with the same personal issues for a long time but getting nowhere? Are you stressed to the point of insomnia and lack of concentration, and do you find yourself preoccupied with negative thoughts?
Do you want to lose weight, quit smoking,
and/or relieve anxiety and depression?

WHAT IS "ABOVE-AVERAGE" THERAPY:

With a lot of years in the helping profession, I've had some time to learn what amounts to effective therapy and what doesn't. As you are searching for the "right" therapist, I want you to know that I am a holistic, wellness-oriented therapist. I am continuously learning and growing in my skills and understanding of the workings of the human brain. I do not believe it is helpful for people to come into therapy and feel WORSE when they leave. This happens most often because people, (even many therapists), still believe that focusing on negativity (i.e., "processing problems") actually helps. Well, research on the human brain recently has made it clear that focusing on negativity just builds more negativity.
Research from the "science of happiness"
gives a more clear idea of what constitutes lasting happiness. There are now plenty of tools that therapists can use to help our clients eliminate old stressful negative patterns and replace them with new ones. This has been my life and study for many years now. If you want to read more about habits, please click on the following link:
Habits: How they form and how they can be changed

Please be sure to click on the green buttons at the top of this page to read more about how you can grow too!

I have a huge range of therapy interventions and I pull them together after getting to know YOU. I am an Advance Certified CLINICAL HYPNOTHERAPIST, use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as part of almost every intervention, am trained and experienced in EMDR for trauma resolution, have years of experience with bereavement, am a skilled couples therapist, etc. More than anything, I am convinced that every person has within him/herself the ability to be naturally well and happy - far beyond what most people imagine for themselves until they begin a full immersion in therapy.
