Travis, will you first introduce yourself to us please:
My name is Travis Gipson. I have been a certified consulting
hypnotist in the Kansas City, Missouri area since 2012. My office is
located in the northland near Zona Rosa Shopping Center. With a long
career in the psych field, hypnotherapy interested me greatly and I
ultimately decided it was the right path for me to take when helping
others live better lives.
What attracted you to a career in Hypnosis?
As a psychology major in college with a few career positions working with people with advanced psychiatric disorders, I have always enjoyed helping others. Hypnosis is often a faster and easier way to make changes in our life, and while not a replacement for traditional psychotherapy, it is almost always a good choice to consider.
I myself have benefited from using hypnosis to better my life.
What was the most helpful training you experienced to become a hypnotist?
Along with my college education I have been certified by a rigorous program designed by the National Guild of Hypnotists. This program really lays down the basics to the advanced. I have since then taken other training courses as well as adapted my own style to achieve greater results.
What issues do your clients typically come to you for help with? Do you specialize in helping people with certain issues?
I wouldn't say that I necessarily specialize, but I do see more people who want to deal with emotional distress than anything else. My method is very much like psychotherapy in the sense that it's a compassionate and detail oriented approach to helping others find relief.
I see many for smoking cessation and weight loss as well. There isn’t too much I haven’t seen people for as the list is nearly endless for ways that hypnosis might be able to help.
What is the most frequent misunderstanding about hypnosis that you encounter with clients or the public?
I have come to find that these days people who make an appointment come fairly informed. What I hear most is that they didn't realize it would turn out as well as it did.
Along with that, people who see movies think it’s a wild or scary thing, yet it’s not. It’s a natural state that we all experience on a daily basis.
As we both know, Hypnosis as a healing and helping modality has existed for hundreds of years now. However, it is more widely known and more accepted in some areas more than others. How would you rate the public acceptance of hypnosis/hypnotherapy in Kansas City?
The Kansas City area, like most places in the USA, is fairly open minded to trying other ways to make improvements. The studies make the case that hypnosis is a very effective and safe way to create changes, both faster and easier.
As a closing statement, I just want to say how blessed I am to be able to do this type of work. Being able to creatively and effectively help others better themselves and feel a level of achievement they didn’t think could be possible, is such a reward. Thanks for reading!
