Despite my scientific background I have had an interest in alternate healing modalities for a very long time. What really got me interested in pursuing hypnosis as a full-time career was my own positive experience with hypnosis many years ago.What do you enjoy about being a hypnotist?
I love being a professional hypnotist, working with individual clients, as well as teaching workshops in a group setting. I really enjoy helping people make positive changes in areas where they had limited or no success before.
Since my sessions are tailored to the individual needs of my clients, benefits are usually noticeable within a short period of time often within a couple of sessions.Have you experienced any other personal benefits from using hypnosis for yourself that you would care to share with our readers?
I personally use hypnosis and self-hypnosis techniques on a regular basis. It helps me to stay centered and balanced and allows me to fine tune my work. The more I can relate to my client’s experience during a session the better and more efficient I can be as a hypnotistWhat issues do your clients typically come to you for help with in your hypnosis practice?
I see clients of all ages with a wide variety of issues. Many people come to see me for habitual changes, including weight-loss and stop smoking.
I have successfully worked with a wide variety of health issues, for example insomnia, skin conditions, sleep apnea and chronic pain to name just a few.
I also see a lot of clients for emotional issues such as fear, anxiety and depression.Do you specialize in helping people with certain issues in particular?
I haven’t specialized in working with a particular issue per se. However, over the years I have developed a unique mind and body approach to hypnosis. In my practice, I utilize the most advanced hypnosis and self-hypnosis techniques. It is my goal to help my clients understand and resolve the underlying cause of their issue rather than focusing on the symptom and trying to suggest it away. My approach is very insight-oriented and empowering for the client. What is the most frequent misunderstanding about hypnosis that you encounter with clients or the public?
I think the most frequent misunderstanding I encounter from people who haven’t experienced hypnosis before is the idea of being unconscious.
I often get asked if they will be able to remember what happened during the session. Hypnosis has nothing to do with being asleep or being unconscious. In fact, being in hypnosis means being in a focused state of awareness. Any time we focus our awareness on something to the exclusion of paying attention to what is happening around us we are in a state of hypnosis. It is very similar to daydreaming.
Another good example is children in front of the TV. If you try to talk to your child while they are engaged in watching their favorite show or playing their favorite video game they are most likely not going to respond immediately.
Hypnosis is a very natural state of the mind. In hypnosis the attention shifts from our environment to our internal world. A skilled and trained hypnotist knows how to guide their client into this focused state of awareness.How would you rate the public acceptance of hypnosis/hypnotherapy in your region?
I do live in California and luckily people are very open and receptive to the idea of using hypnosis in order to help them more successfully and permanently reach their individual goals. An increasing number of physicians refer their patients to me. I love to see that hypnosis is gaining more and more credit in the medical world.Do you have any words of advice to potential clients?
The successful outcome of any hypnosis session is dependent on two very important factors. First and foremost the skills and experience of your hypnotist and secondly it greatly depends on the participation of the client and their motivation for success and change. Is there anything else that you would like to expand upon or add that we have not covered?
The skillful application of hypnosis and hypnotherapy is one of the most powerful tools for personal change and transformation. It is very simple yet powerful.
