Hypnotherapy is guided hypnosis, or a trance-like state of focus and concentration achieved under the guidance of a clinical hypnotherapist. This trance-like state is similar to being completely absorbed in a book, movie, music, or even one's own thoughts or meditations. In this state, clients can turn their attention completely inward to find and utilize the natural resources deep within themselves that can help them make changes or regain control in certain areas of their life.
In my Hypnotherapy sessions I use all of my skills sets to provide a supportive, effective and practical experience for your emotional healing and success to reach your intended goals. I specialize in emotional healing, inner child work, soul retrieval, past lives, and release from difficult past experiences to empower of women to live with confidence and emotional freedom.
I will guide you into a relaxed, focused state and ask you to think about experiences and situations in positive ways that can help you change the way you think and behave. You may release challenges, past patterns and toxic beliefs through expressive techniques or energy practices.
Unlike some dramatic portrayals of hypnosis in movies, books, or on stage, you will not be unconscious , asleep, or in any way out of control of yourself. You will hear positive suggestions for reframing and realigning your beliefs or behaviors, but it is up to you to decide whether or not to act on them.
Hypnotherapy can be a stand alone or an adjunct form of therapy, used along with other forms of emotional support and has many applications. Hypnotherapy can be used to treat
Anxiety phobias, smoking, weight loss, undesirable spontaneous behaviors, and bad habits. It can be used to help improve sleep, learning disorders, communication, and relationship issues. Hypnotherapy can aid in pain management and help resolve medical conditions such as digestive disorders, skin issues, and gastrointestinal issues and chemotherapy. It can also be used to help patients control their fears or to treat teeth grinding and other oral conditions.
As this is not a form of psychotherapy but can be combined with other modalities for healing. As a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist I can work with you independently or, with permissions, in conjunction with other healing professionals.

Aprylisa has a very comforting presence and helped significantly with the resolution that was needed. Thank you so much Aprylisa, ..you are a beautiful gift to the world of healing." Blissings, Tiana
"I signed up for the hypnotherapy with Aprylisa because I knew I was ready for some shifts, and past experience has shown me that I receive profound benefits working with her.
Her ways of working with me are effective, and I feel comfortable and safe in her care.
Although I have experienced shamanic journey and past life regression trance work before, I had never tried hypnotherapy and wanted to see if it could help me …
The questions she asked me, and the actions she prompted me to take, brought forward a level of awareness around the cough that I had not experienced in any therapy before. I had never told the details of that story to that degree; I had not felt the feelings associated with it, or expressed them so thoroughly before. During the time that the cough began, I was burning out and my marriage was failing. I did not talk about my experience with anyone, and I completely lacked the energy to do anything but go numb.
I felt calm and solidly present following the session.
My overall experience with Aprylisa has consistently supported my healing and growth, in ways that feel good to me even when I don't completely understand what has shifted. I would recommend her services, and have done so more than once."- Jenna Woods.
"My original reason to work with Aprylisa was to level up beyond codependency in mid-2018, but has evolved from there of course. I have had so much deep change! Plus guidance and direction that I wouldn’t have had on my own.
Aprylisa has helped me heal enough of my attachment trauma to now function beyond the limits of codependency, and she’s helped me with so much more than that. Changing my masculine archetype, bringing new possibilities into my relationship with time, feeling safer in the world at a base level, and support in dealing with life’s unexpected challenges as they come are just a few highlights.
She is the most baller wise woman shaman!
Working with Aprylisa can be life changing if you let it. She wields her craft with a degree of nuance and skill that I have not found anything even close to with other practitioners. I’m consistently surprised at the depth, accuracy, and effectiveness of the work we do together. She can flow with and incorporate ideas from way out of left field while still bringing it all home in a way that feels nurturing and supportive. It also feels permission-based and collaborative instead of like someone is doing something “to” you, which I really appreciate. I can’t recommend her highly enough." Emily W.
"I chose to take the hypnotherapy session because I've been going through a lot of transitions this year (moving, change of work) and I wanted support with that. Also, I was just curious to see if it would be effective!
My initial issue was finding work that I enjoy doing that supports me financially and between filling out the form and the time of the session, I was able to find a part-time job that seems to suit my needs/interests. On the day of the appointment, I wanted to work with my FEAR, nervousness, and feelings of "fear of being incompetent or not good enough."
The day after the hypnotherapy session, I felt calmer about work (my new job). I also felt a deeper sense of confidence about myself. I also could recognize (and feel good about) aspects of myself or achievements I've made. I felt "older and wiser" ---like the fear and the self-doubts that I was feeling before seemed to be coming from a much younger self.
The hypnotherapy session was helpful because I felt "less stressed out" about work. I feel that I'm going to do what I can to prepare and deal with it as well as I can. I also remind myself that I always have myself , no matter whether other people give me approval or not.
The way you do hypnotherapy was MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE than a couple of hypnotherapy sessions I have received at other times. I felt a greater shift the following day and I felt very emotionally supported during the session.
The hypnotherapy felt more "emotional" than receiving energy work. Also, the hypnotherapy helped me to make connections between my present feelings. I'm not sure I would have made those connections during other energy work.
I think the hypnotherapy work is GREAT -- I would consider getting it in person again. I am VERY GRATEFUL for the shifts from the session --I feel calmer and more like an adult (I know that sounds strange because I do value my inner child as well).
I just feel like I took some of the first important steps to more SELF- CONFIDENCE and SELF-TRUST. THANK YOU SO MUCH!" - Bethanne
"I choose to do hypnotherapy with Aprylisa because she is amazing in anything she offers. I love her as a person and she is very intuitive. She has really helped me in the past.
The initial issue was self-esteem and feeling a block to just feeling free to be and like myself just as I am. I also mentioned wanting to be on the relationship of my dreams and finding myself attracting people who aren’t for my highest good.
Afterwards, I noticed that I had more confidence to say what is true for me and what I’m wanting in a relationship. …I took a big step in confronting a man I was meeting online. He misrepresented his age and I addressed it with him in a way that was connecting and healing for both of us. I had the confidence to speak my truth without making him wrong. I was true to myself rather than ignoring it, minimizing it, or enabling him to continue that type of behavior.
This was a big shift for me. Instead of fearing rejection, making the other person upset or attracting conflict, I focused on me and my needs and my truth in a very calm way not needing anything from him.
This was different from the energy work I did with Aprylisa before with the added element of the expression of emotions to move it through the body while in the hypnotic state. It was more guided asking about the first time this was ever experienced and going back to the first memory. My memory was of separating from source and the sadness, fear, guilt, confusion and disappointment I experienced. I really felt such a relief from that existential angst. Like I can finally stop recycling that issue and be clear and move forward.
I highly recommend Aprylisa for any of her offerings. She is a great guide, holds space very safely and comfortably, is intuitive and supportive and her warmth and tender love make it super easy to go deeply quickly." Debbi
