Insight Treatment Hour Is Demystifying Hypnotherapy And Raising Teen Mental Health Awareness

This week on the Insight Treatment Hour, host Frederik was joined by Niki Payne, CCHt to demystify the practice of hypnotherapy and discuss how healing through the subconscious mind may help your teen in their mental health journey. 

Niki Payne, CCHt has worked as a Certified Dream Coach, Clinical Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner for years now. Payne began her journey with hypnotherapy while searching for answers and healing for her own struggles.

Payne explains that as a young woman she could not understand why she was constantly chasing emotionally unavailable partners. After losing her college boyfriend to drug addiction, Payne found herself taking a class at the Hypnosis Motivation Institute in Tarzana.

It was here that she underwent hypnosis that led her to the conclusion that her own childhood and parents’ relationship had affected her more profoundly than she thought. This helped her unlearn toxic habits and find peace. 

After this experience Payne dedicated her life to helping others do the same

Payne believes people have a misconception of what hypnosis is and how it can be used to heal trauma, mental health issues and more.

Payne explains that the goal of a hypnotherapy session is to create a safe space and relax the body in such a way that the mind can relax and relinquish its “critical filter.” Once the critical filter is relaxed, Payne says that the mind is no longer using logic, reasoning, decision making or critical thinking skills.

With these filters temporarily down, the hypnotherapist can plant suggestions within the client’s subconscious mind. Payne explains that the subconscious mind is a safe place for a person to use imagination to more deeply and safely explore complicated emotions and experiences.
