What is Hypnotherapy?

Kim Silverman is a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist helping clients bypass their critical conscious mind to directly access their subconscious mind in order to obtain a desired outcome. When you bypass your critical mind, the results are often accelerated when compared to traditional therapy.

Even with hypnotherapy, you have free-will and can accept the new way of thinking or not. Your subconscious is always protecting you and you can NOT be hypnotized against your will. Your subconscious will not allow it! It is your gatekeeper.

Kim is not a doctor, licensed therapist, psychologist or psychotherapist. She is not licensed to diagnose illnesses or prescribe medications. She is, however, clinically trained to apply various hypnotherapy tools and techniques to achieve a desired transformational change.

A hypnotherapist uses a variety of tools to achieve a successful outcome. Kim is clinically certified to use the following tools:


Hypnotherapy Trance


Voice Dialogue


Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)

Hypnotherapy Trance
Hypnotherapy Trance Session
A hypnotherapy trance session often lasts about 2 hours.

The first 30 minutes are a discussion about what you want to achieve.


The actual hypnosis session is about an hour.


The last 30 minutes is a discussion about what was uncovered during the session.

A Hypnotherapy Trance session is best done while you are lying down or sitting in a chair.

You are guided into a relaxed state in order to gain access to your subconscious mind. This can take about 20 minutes to achieve, depending on your experience level with hypnosis.

You will feel awake, you are always in control, and you will remember what was discussed.

You can NOT be hypnotized against your will because your subconscious mind won’t allow that to happen.

When you embrace the process of hypnotherapy and gain access to your subconscious mind, you will achieve insights about yourself and about the prevailing issue.

When you are in a hypnotic trance, the power of suggestion and imagery is used to provide positive changes that work toward achieving your goal.

Voice dialogue
Voice Dialogue Session
The Voice Dialogue Method is a hypnotherapy method, created by Hal and Sidra Stone, that is used to speak to your sub-personalities that are within you and are often holding you back from changing your behaviors and beliefs.

Voice dialogue sessions are often conducted while you are awake in a conscious level, although it can also be done while in a hypnotic trance. This method is very effective in understanding what drives your behavior.

Examples of your common personalities are:

“Pusher” that part of you pushing you to do more, be more.
“Procrastinator” that part of you that puts off the task or deadline until later.
“Perfectionist” that part of you that strives for everything to be perfect.
“Pleaser” that part of you always trying to please others.
“Rule Maker” that part of you that needs to follow the rules and pushes others to obey.
“Criticizer” that part of you always find fault with yourself.
“Judger” that part of you that is continually judging others and seeing their faults.

There are many others as this is just a list of a few.

Neuro-linguistic programming
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Session
Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is a hypnotherapy tool that is done in a conscious waking state. Often it is done while standing or sitting and involves both physical actions combined with mental and emotional components to achieve a changed result.

NLP is a pseudoscientific approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in California, United States, in the 1970s. NLP was developed to access the connection between neurological processes (neuro-), language (linguistic) and behavioral patterns learned through experience (programming), in order to change and achieve specific goals in life.
