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 . . .
Do you really want to change? I mean deep, permanent changes that you don't have to tell anyone about--because they see it or tell
you. How many people do you know in the Phoenix Metro area who have really changed?
Probably few to none. Unless you know one of my patients.
Then you have seen or experienced it with your own eyes!
me? While there are a few good hypnotherapists in Phoenix, Scottsdale and Tempe, do you realize there are no education
prerequisites to complete a hypnotherapy certification program? In fact, 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 who holds an undergraduate
degree and master's degree in psychology from a nationally-accredited and respected university? In addition, hypnotherapy
training and certification programs vary greatly. A Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist (CCHt) (like me) requires about twice
the training time as a regular Certified Hypnotherapist (C.Ht.). Plus all schools are not created equal or have equal levels
of accrediation. Do the other hypnotherapists you may be considering even indicate where they received their training?
Hypnosis, 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), can give you the power to make significant permanent changes! Most of
my patients come from Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Gilbert and Chandler Arizona. However, I have treated men and
women from as far away as Sun City West, Prescott, Florence, Casa Grande, Tucson, Holbrook, Las Vegas, Orange County, Indianapolis,
Juneau Alaska, Minneapolis and Canada!
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 right!) 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, they 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 five patients who I could not hypnotize;
they were very resistant, and most likely given more time, I actually could have hypnotized them! The time factor is important,
which is why I have not come across someone I could not hypnotize in at least five years. Especially for a first appointment,
I schedule a cushion of extra time, in case I need it.
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 into hypnosis. It is
a natural process, similar to going into a trance for a few minutes when driving to or from work using the same route every
day. 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 and common process.
My patients have included medical doctors, naturopathic doctors, chiropractors,
lawyers, entrepreneurs, physical therapists, psychologists, nurses (many!), social workers, teachers (many!),
engineers, college professors, high school & college students, 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, as your 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, relaxed like you just took a refreshing short nap. 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 right after the hypnosis say they "don't remember the last time I felt
