What is hypnosis?
The Mayo Clinic defines hypnosis as being an altered state of consciousness. The person is able to focus their attention in a more direct way while under hypnosis. There are many changes that occur while a person is in a trance-like state.
People are more open to suggestion, which often helps people make changes in their thought process and in their actions. While in a hypnotic state, people tend to be less critical and more believing. The Mayo Clinic believes that the purpose of hypnosis is a therapeutic technique to help you understand and gain more control over your behavior, actions, emotions, or physical well-being.

The 3 Main Myths about Hypnosis
“The hypnotized is being controlled”
It’s difficult to get people to do things under hypnosis that they wouldn’t normally do. While hypnotized, people are still in touch with their morals and normal standards of behavior.
“A hypnotist cured me in 1 session!”
Almost no one is cured in one session. Hypnotherapists usually insist that patients commit to 5 sessions, or sometimes 20. This isn’t profiteering, permanent change takes time. Like taking antibiotics, or doing physical therapy, continuous, regular work is required for healing to take place.
“I’ve never been hypnotized!”
There are many examples of mild hypnosis that you go through every day. One is when you drive a long distance and start to feel dissociated from your body and the car. Your subconscious is taking care of all the mechanical aspects of driving while you conscious mind is free to float around.

I recommend Lori Beard because the help she provides is from her heart. Lori loves the Hispanic community. What she does is with God's power to be able to help and bring about changes in the person she touches. This influence is what keeps me going. Life is better because I have been able to overcome inhibiting habits that I was not able to on my own. I no longer need toxic substances thanks to God and thanks to what I have learned to discover about myself with Lori. She has helped me understand that drugs are unnecessary to live joyfully nor to smile.
Life is beautiful, it consists in living a healthy and generous life like Lori's.

I had the chance to have sessions with Lori and in a single word I could say “amazing”. Initially I was wondering about a coaching and hypnosis remote session over Skype, but I have to admit that the results are beyond all my expectations. She totally masters the session and made me feel like if I was in front of her in the same room. The “distance” is clearly not a showstopper. During the session, Lori really takes the time to listen to you, and honors where you come from. She helps you to clearly identify what you want and need to address with her. Thanks to her help all these things seemed suddenly clearer in my mind. She took the time to listen and gave me the time to feel relaxed and in confidence with her. When the hypnosis part of the started and she was strictly speaking, her tone, her voice and the words she used made me feel totally at ease. I felt totally relaxed. I won’t go in the details of the sessions, but I can only say that I felt extremely good and it helped me confront what I needed with strength and confidence. I also would like to say that I am living in Switzerland and English is not my mother tongue and despite of that Lori was always able to use the proper words to be sure I stay “connected” to her.
