Jennifer Zylstra, Hypnotherapist
Was I ever relieved when I realized that we can change ourselves if we really want to! For so long I believed that once a habit was entrenched we were stuck that way. And it wasn't just my obvious habits but what I sometimes call my "Standard Operating Procedures", those things I did without even realizing that I was doing them.... letting emotions rule my life, worrying too much about what everyone else thought and not enough about what I thought, and yet at the same time still being so terrified that I'd come off somewhat egocentric. Not exactly the balance I wanted.
But, in came hypnotherapy and it changed my mind and my life. I was actually able to update my own mind, letting it know what I wanted my life to look like, what I actually thought was important and what was no longer relevant. Hypnotherapy gave me insight into where my issues came from and how I could resolve them.
It isn't magic, but it is the closest thing to magic I have experienced.
I decided to name my practice "The Answer Within" because I noticed that no matter what if the issue was about self confidence, sleep, relationships, changing habits or phobias, at the end of the day the answer to our problem is within ourselves and we are responsible for finding that answer. Hypnotherapy makes that so easy and so pleasant.
I believe it is my open, relaxed and non-judgmental attitude that allows clients to feel comfortable and confident sharing with me. My insight into human motivations and behaviours grants me the ability to offer clients effective, supportive assistance in reaching their goals by helping clients find healthy perspectives of their life experiences and themselves.
