Do you want a healthier diet or weight loss?
Do you suffer from anxiety, depression, PTSD, insomnia, low self-esteem, or abuse alcohol or drugs?
Do you have relationship issues or have difficulty saying "no" at home or on the job.
If so, you
have come to the right place! Now, the next question is . . .
Others treat the symptoms, I treat the CAUSES!
While there are a few good hypnotherapists in Phoenix, Scottsdale and Tempe,
do you realize there are no education prerequisites for hypnotherapy?
For most programs, one doesn't even need
a high school diploma.
So, considering the intricacies of the human mind, wouldn't you prefer to work with an experienced
practitioner with an undergraduate and master's degree in psychology
from a nationally-accredited university?
In addition, hypnotherapy training and certification programs vary greatly.
Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist (CCHt) (like me) requires more than double the training of a regular Certified Hypnotherapist
And, no matter the claim, if a practitioner does not have CCHT after his/her name, they are not a true
As you can see from this link to the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts description, someone
can be certified with just 100 hours.
But to get their Clinical Certification (CCHT) the program requires 350 hours
on campus and additional online work: SWIHA
Plus all schools are not equal--nor have equal levels of accreditation. Do other practitioners even indicate where they
received their training?
is a method whose effectiveness has been demonstrated in clinical trials for 100 years (the US government started using hypnosis
for "shell shock" patients before WW I).
It can give you the power to make significant permanent
changes! In fact, the famed Mayo Clinic is now offering hypnotherapy services in conjuntion with their other medical services.
A clear recognition of
it's acceptance as a successful healing modality.
Hypnotherapy is the professional
use of hypnosis to help patients achieve goals and change habits.
In most areas of my practice, hypnotherapy
is the fastest and most powerful way to permanently change your attitudes and behavior!
(Yes, you read that
Once you try it, you will WISH that you tried it years earlier! You
can use hypnotherapy to harness your innate ability to:
- Lose weight and maintain the weight loss
- Quit smoking
- Conquer fears and anxiety (including test-taking anxiety)
- Heal Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Improve sleep
- Lift depression, without
- Improve your confidence, sex life, and self-esteem
- Enhance job, school and sports performance
- Change addictive behaviors (If you believe alcoholism is a disease,
Can Anyone be Hypnotized?
This is a common concern. Perhaps, because they saw or know someone who in a stage hypnotist show was not hypnotized.
Or they know someone who went to a group stop smoking hypnosis class and wasn't hypnotized.
Those people may believe
a good percentage of the population "can't" be hypnotized.
This isn't true! Those situations are very,
very different from working with me one-on-one in my office.
Since starting this practice in 2007, I have only
encountered a few patients who I could not hypnotize; they were very resistant.
In addition, some believe they are too "strong
willed" to be hypnotized. Again, a misconception. My work does not involve a battle of wills.
No one is forced
It is a natural process, similar to going into a trance for a few minutes when driving to or from
work or school.
Or, losing yourself in the story while watching an engaging movie with a couple of hundred people
in the theater. It is a very natural process.
My patients have included medical doctors, naturopathic doctors, chiropractors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, professional athletes,
physical therapists, psychologists,
nurses, social workers, teachers, engineers, college professors, high school & college students,
wait staff, project
managers, pilots, flight attendants and store clerks.
People from all walks of life in Arizona have
used hypnosis, why not you?
What is it Like?
Most people have a
false belief about what it is like to be hypnotized. They think they will "go under" and not be aware of what is
being said, or what is happening.
In fact, it is likely that during the first time you will hear everything I say,
or you may miss just a few minutes. If that happens, you are not actually "missing" anything,
subconscious mind is paying attention and hearing everything I say.
However, it may also get a bit dreamy at times with
people reporting seeing colors, or perhaps familiar people or images.
In any case, it is a pleasant sensation
and at the end you will feel rested and relaxed.
By the time you leave my office you will be totally clear and ready
to drive, go home or to work.
Most of all, you will continue to feel calm and relaxed. In fact, many people say
they "don't remember the last time I felt this relaxed."
