Hypnotherapy, Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) and The Hamptons Method
by Albert R O’Connell III, LCSW, CASAC

Richard Bandler, the cofounder of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) once said “Brains are designed to get results; they go in directions. If you know how the brain works you can set your own directions. If you don’t, then someone else will.” With the advent of AI the potential for this is mind-boggling to say the least.

Hypnosis can be defined as focused attention with heightened suggestibility. The primary principle of hypnosis: tap the unlimited potential of your subconscious mind to initiate the positive change in your life now. Many people mistakenly believe that willpower alone can be relied upon to change behavior. Just think of the last time you attempted to change a behavior by “willing it”— more than likely the old behavior resumed. Hypnosis & NLP can help remove psychological and emotional obstacles including self-limiting beliefs. After all, everything begins and ends with belief. It is estimated that 90% of our behaviors are subconsciously driven.

To make a decision to change can sometimes only take a nanosecond. However, it is theorized that it takes approximately 90 days for new behavior to be installed replacing the old behavior. Once that occurs the path of least resistance is to the new behavior.

Hypnotherapy & NLP, as with every other program/solution, is for people who “want it – not need it”. Take for example the individual who wishes to lose weight. This is a common issue that many people struggle with unnecessarily. The Hamptons Method combines therapies including hypnotherapy, strategic therapy, NLP, brainwave entrainment and other modalities to stop undesired behaviors almost as easily as turning off a switch.

The practical applications for Hypnosis & NLP are limited only to your imagination. You can call for a free consultation to discuss how close you are to change right now. The fact that you are reading this would suggest that you would be a good candidate for my program. Programs to diagnose and treat conditions including, but not limited to, are: anxiety, panic, stress, clinical depression, PTSD, and resolution of fears / phobias. Many programs are covered by insurance. We accept Medicare and Medicaid; for a list of other accepted insurance please visit Albert R O’Connell III in the Therapist Finder at PsychologyToday.com. Sessions are conducted in-person at Southampton and Westhampton Beach. Now offering ZOOM sessions as well.

Please be advised the aforementioned therapies work best for modifying behaviors effectively and efficiently. Keep in mind that many symptoms that impact behavior can be rooted in serious physical conditions that need to be diagnosed and treated by a licensed MD. Please consult your primary physician.
