I am Susan Dunlop, M.A., C.Ht., an internationally certified hypnotherapist practicing hypnosis in Pensacola, Florida. My work is varied and utterly fascinating. A great deal of it is in the area of Divorce Recovery Hypnosis. The specialty is more important to me than you would think… My own divorce following the collapse of a twenty-year marriage nearly destroyed me. A friend saved my sanity and my life by dragging me (kicking and screaming, figuratively) to a divorce recovery workshop. The participants were a sad lot, and I knew I wasn’t like them. (I was down to 95 pounds, and I’m not short. It was an effort to take each breath. I would stop complete strangers to tell them about what my ex did. But I thought I was better off than the other people at the workshop!) So I didn’t return. Two weeks later, I was sitting on the doorstep an hour early, waiting for the divorce recovery class to start. I begged them to take me back.
Beyond doubt, that workshop helped me to survive what I thought was the end of my world. However, if I had known about Divorce Recovery Hypnosis, and sought out a hypnotist experienced in that area, I wouldn’t have had to continue to struggle with denial, fear, and victimhood for years. It is well-known that a few hypnosis sessions can produce much more rapid results than months (sometimes years) of talking therapy.
In hypnosis, you are in a relaxed state of focused awareness. It is an altered state, but a thoroughly familiar and peaceful one. You are awake, alert, and in control. But you are your best self, the person you were born to be, no longer defined by your traumas, fears, your ex, or your ego. As you can imagine, the experience is quite beautiful and comforting. You perceive yourself, your life, from a distance, from new perspectives. You choose who you want to be and how you want to live. Blockages are shattered so that you can begin to choose steps to create a happier, healthier life.
