◊Notes of Interest about Hypnosis:

An interesting piece of trivia for you, sleep type states or altered states of healing, which hypnosis is, started as early as 3000 BC in the Sleep Temples of Greece and Egypt.

James Braid, known as the father of hypnosis, coined the term “hypnosis” after the Greek word hypnos, which means “sleep”. In Greek Mythology, the god of sleep was known as Hypnos. The word “therapy” is derived from the Latin work therapeau, which means “God’s work.”

Hypnosis has evolved through the years in many ways under the tutelage of many different noted doctors, some that you might recognize are Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, and Milton Erickson as well as lay practitioners, such as Edgar Cayce. In 1958 The American Medical Association endorsed the use of hypnosis as a valid therapeutic tool.

 ◊Hypnosis Works Through the Subconscious Memories.

Perhaps You Might Like to Know The Functions and Purposes of The Conscious & Subconscious Mind


Looking, Listening, & Learning

Reasoning & Judging

Analyzing & Criticizing

Excepting or Rejecting

Of bits and pieces of information gathered and received during the day


Harboring images, ideas and concepts

Memory Storehouse

Memory Warehouse of information

Runs all bodily functions

From Birth until Death: One can, will and must act out and carry out any image, images, ideas and concepts allowed to be implanted in One’s awareness

Many go through life not realizing what has been implanted within their subconscious memories and thus are controlled by the information that has been stored within the subconscious memory; i.e. such as smoking habits, weight issues, negative self talk (example of negative self talk: once on the lips forever on the hips), abusive environments, teachers, leaders, parents, friends, negative habits, stinking thinking…things picked up by the mind from TV concentration (example of accidental hypnosis by watching TV commercials: Cold & Flu Season are here) and other media or negative input…………negative thinking…….fears…..

The individual’s undesirable outcomes, that are to be changed may be changed with a reinforcement procedure where by replacing the old image, images, ideas or concepts with a new acting pattern that is repeated and listen to by the person, or persons for 30 consecutive days forming a new subconscious acting pattern.  Hypnotic suggestion is one tool to use to establish these new pathways, affirmations are another.

That which the mind can conceive and believe can be achieved.

◊ A. Hypnosis and It's Procedures: 

The practice of hypnotism encompasses the induction of a hypnotic state by applying individualized techniques to induce hypnosis in order to assist clients with stress, fears, phobia's, poor self esteem, goal achievement, altering habits such as smoking and weight management, increasing client motivation in employment, the workplace, and in sports activities, and enhancing creative, artistic and scholastic endeavors along with Past Life Regression and Life Between Life Regression. Within the USA each state governs the titles that hypnosis practitioners operate under, including but not limited to hypnotist, hypnotherapist,  hypno-counselor . Basically all have the same meaning.

The practice of hypnotism may include:

1.        Interviewing a client to determine the nature of the client's issues

2.    Assessing the client's suitability for hypnosis

3.   Testing a prospective client to determine the client's level of suggestibility

4.   Preparing clients for hypnosis through an explanation of the process and procedures used as well as a description of the resulting  hypnotic state to be experienced by the client

5.   Teaching self-hypnosis to clients

6.   Inducing the hypnotic state

7.   Applying hypnotic techniques

Within every being there lies the potential to elevate, heal, and inspire ourselves as well as others. Hypnosis is considered the best-known tool to actualize this process. By delving into the roots of human conditioning and habit formation, we may work with the non-tangible aspects of humanbehavior and utilize effective methods toeradicate negative and harmful habits, and accomplish behavioral change. Through hypnosis you can change your belief system and "orders" with which you have been programming your own behavior. Hypnosis is a state of altered consciousness induced by relaxation, visual imagery, oral suggestions or other forms of verbal stimuli to the senses. It is a state in which the subconscious mind enjoys a heightened level of susceptibility to further suggestion occasioned by a bypass of the conscious mind through suggestion, relaxation, and imagery.

B. Note Regarding Services:

The hypnosis services to be provided do not include the practice of medicine, as a practitioner of hypnotism is not a licensed physician. These services are non-diagnostic, and are complementary to the healing arts services that are licensed by the state. During hypnosis sessions, clients are completely aware of their surroundings and suggestions, however persons are so relaxed that they rarely pay attention to anything enhanced. Most clients comment that they were truly relaxed and have not been so relaxed in quite some time. Hypnosis is safe, relaxing and enjoyable.

Mission Statement:

Each professional hypnotist is dedicated to using hypnosis to motivate you to embrace positive thoughts and beliefs and achieve personal goals such as positive change, self-empowerment, behavior modification, wellness, happiness, peak performance, success, and harmony.

◊ What is Hypnosis:

Hypnosis is a natural state that a person experiences normally several times throughout the course of a typical day. It is a level of concentration that the average individual reaches daily doing such activities as daydreaming or absorbed in a TV program.  

Hypnosis is an educational communication process within a person’s mind that allows his/her conscious and subconscious mind to align and receive the same agreement message.

The process produces an altered state of consciousness through concentration, physical and mental relaxation. Hypnotic suggestions bypass the critical faculty, called the conscious mind, and focuses on offering healthy, positive suggestions to the subconscious mind.

During hypnosis the senses are in a state of heightened awareness. While in this heightened state the mind only accepts that which goes along with the established morals and ethics of the hypnotized individual. The person in a hypnotic state will only respond to suggestions with which he/she is in agreement. Desire, belief and expectancy are necessary for this altered state to have effect in the outer behavior of the hypnotized individual.

Everyone can be hypnotized to varying degrees. The level of hypnosis a person achieves is often associated with their desire to succeed, receptivity to suggestions and ability to focus and respond. Hypnosis is an agreement between the hypnotist and the client, whereby 10 percent of the effort is the hypnotist/hypnotherapist's guidance and 90 percent of the responsibility is the client's for focusing, allowing and accepting the guidance.

It is often said that changing one's mind and attitude is like changing one's life. What was created by the mind can be changed by the mind. "U" Turns are always possible.

◊What is a Transpersonal Hypnotist/Hypnotherapist?

A Transpersonal Hypnotist/Hypnotherapist follows the standard procedures of hypnosis and adds the dimension of working with the whole person and their spirituality.


These are just a few of the areas that Hypnosis has proven to be effective in assisting:

Hypnosis Past Life Regression  - Sessions typically last 1.5 to 2 hours.

Discover a Past Life time. Often times patterns from your current life are a carry over from a previous existence. In my experience with Past Life Regression therapy I have observed that sometimes current health issues, fears, phobias and anxieties can also be carried over from other life times. 

It is suggested to actually complete a current lifetime age regression session prior to the Past Life Regression for best results. 

Hypnosis Life Between Lives    - Sessions typically last 2 to 4 hours.

Want to experience A Unique Journey into your Life Between Lives HOME? A hypnosis Life Between Life Regression session is one way to tap into the remembrance of where you reside when you are not in physical body. A hypnotic visit to the Between Lives can provide some "AH HA" life changing realizations that you are so much more than this physical form. Each individual's journey is very different, but many have found understanding about their most important relationships and spiritual guidance about concerns. Others have discovered why they selected their parents and even information on why they selected their current body type, gender and life lessons. They have received guidance from their Spirit Guides, Guardian Angels, Angels and Council of Elders. Many have met with their Soul Families and more clearly understood information regarding their current life purpose or patterns they are experiencing.  There is much that can be uncovered here to answer many questions that you might currently want clarification or confirmation on. A successful Past Life Regression is a prerequisite for a Life Between Lives session. It is suggested to actually complete a current lifetime age regression session prior to the Past Life Regression for best results. 

What you can expect when you come for your Hypnosis session:

When you arrive you will be requested to fill out a Client Registration form asking for such information as name, address, phone/cell phone, e-mail address, current medical conditions you are being treated for, if any, along with your areas of interest or issues that we will be working on together. This paperwork can be sent to you via e-mail to bring in with you the day of your session if desired to save time.

We will talk briefly answering any questions you might have and out-lining the process that will be used and discussing what you want to accomplish in your sessions. Once your paperwork is completed, your questions all answered and a clear picture of your expectations are understood you will switch chairs and sit in the session recliner.

While you are relaxing in the session recliner I will begin to gently guide you through some deep breathing exercises, guided visualization, perhaps a story or two that will lead into a very deep relaxed state so that we can work directly with the Subconscious Mind. Most individuals hear everything that is going on around them, although they may or may not remember it all. The hypnosis session will be recorded on CD to take with you at the end of the session. Sessions typically are approximately two hours in length. Some sessions can be longer if working with Life Between Life memories.

When the hypnosis session comes to a conclusion I will guide you gently back into your normal waking state of awareness.  You will feel refreshed, relaxed and ready to go about your day.

At the close of your session we will take a few minutes to talk about your session and what you can expect going forward from the information received and the areas covered during the session. You will be able to ask any questions that you might have. You will be provided an audio CD of the session completed. We can schedule additional appointments if desired. Then you are back on your way into whatever else your day holds for you.

What Is A Hypnotic Coach:  

Life Coaching is not new but when paired with Hypnosis the results are transformational. 

A Hypnotic Coach uses the skills and tools of a Life Coach and blends them harmoniously with certified Hypnosis to achieve a co-created change towards specific goals or dreams of the client. Just as important as achieving results, a Hypnotic Coach will assist in putting new practices in place and helping eliminate life draining habits. Life change takes time, gift yourself with a commitment of at least three to six months of working together to create the new you. The good news is that coaching sessions can be achieved in person or via phone. Note: Hypnosis may not be involved with every coaching session. 

Working with a Hypnotic Coach provides an opportunity to see and explore the world with a different set of eyes. The Coach plays a key role by supporting and holding a vision of what is possible for each client. Through focused effort one can peel back the accumulated layers of identity and old roles one has played in the past revealing the brilliant authentic self inside. What treasures are awaiting your own self-discovery?

One’s transformation is a co-creative partnership forged between the client and the coach. 

I love my work. It is such a privilege to watch a focused committed client transform before my very own eyes.

Ultimately coaching is not about what the coach delivers, but about what the client creates through their focused efforts and self-accountability. 

A classic definition of a "wacky notion" is for one to continue to do things the same old way time after time and expect different results. The truth is, that if nothing changes, then nothing changes the outcome.

Ask yourself "What do you really want?" "Where do you want to make a difference in your life?

Life is not always simple nor easy, but with knowledge, intent and support along the way one's full potential can be achieved. Isn’t it time you became your own cheerleader?

Not every coaching session may have hypnosis involved. 

Life Coaching is moving people towards success, the added bonus is uncovering hidden talents or skills along the way. 

Life Coaching is about transformation.

What will you decide to change today that will influence your life for a better tomorrow? 

What You Can Expect When You Come for Your  First Hypnotic Coaching Session: 

The first Hypnotic Coaching Session will explore what dreams, goals and changes the Client would like to have assistance with. Paperwork will be filled out and Fees discussed and paid.  If there are multiple goals a joint determination will be made at that time to select one to start with. The client will enjoy a light hypnosis session and take home an assignment to be returned at the next scheduled appointment.
