Hypnosis for Fear of Flying 

By ||Categories: Uncategorized|

Fear of Flying is one of the more common irrational fears. One reason is that there are many aspects to flying that are potentially psychologically disturbing. For example, being restricted in a small space for a long time without any possibility of changing your situation can be very uncomfortable for many people. In addition, there is a small but real danger to flying; you are high up in the air moving at great speeds. For many the most anxiety generating aspect of flying is that you are totally dependent on the judgment and actions of total strangers for your safety. As [...]

Want to reduce Stress? Listen to this song.

By ||Categories: Uncategorized|

Want to reduce Stress? Listen to this song. We all need control over stress no matter how well we pull ourselves together. According to Dr. David Lewis-Hodgson of Mindlab International, which conducted the research, the top song produced a greater state of relaxation than any other music tested to date. In fact, listening to that one song — “Weightless” — resulted in a striking 65 percent reduction in participants’ overall anxiety, and a 35 percent reduction in their usual physiological resting rates. Of the top track, Dr. David Lewis-Hodgson said, “‘Weightless’ was so effective, many volunteers became drowsy and it would [...]

HOW TO MAKE BETTER DECISIONS

By ||Categories: Uncategorized|

We make hundreds, maybe even thousands, of decisions every day. Our everyday decisions affect our accomplishments, our relationships, and our general well being. Given their recurrence and significance, how can we make better decisions all the more often? One way is to consistently ask questions that lead to better decisions, let me demonstrate…. 1. Would this decision improve the lives of others? Overlooking the effect of our decisions on others goes against our best interest. Why? Since mutual relationships and concern are a key part of achievement and prosperity. Thus, a decision to help other people, to offer thanks, or [...]

WHAT TYPE OF HYPNOSIS IS BEST?

By ||Categories: Uncategorized|

Most people don’t know that there are many types of hypnosis. They go by all sorts of interesting names and equally interesting claims, “past life regression”, “ericksonian”, “authoritarian”, “deep trance”, “core transformation”, even “demonic de-possession”. Because hypnosis works so intensely with the human mind and imagination people have taken the study of hypnosis into some very interesting (perhaps “weird”) directions. Many hypnotists are proud to advertise their style hypnosis, so it’s natural to ask ‘which type of hypnosis is best?’ The answer is simple: the one that gets the result. Since 1998, when I started helping people with hypnosis I [...]

WHY HYPNOSIS SHOULDN’T MATTER

By ||Categories: Uncategorized|

Being a professional hypnotist for two decades has taught me a lot. It’s taught me that people can change in dramatic and positive ways given all the right reasons. I’ve seen people quit smoking and never go back after one session. I’ve seen people overcome paralyzing PTSD and phobias, change behaviors and start making healthy life sustaining decisions in what seems like minutes. To my surprise what I’ve learned late in my career is that hypnosis doesn’t really matter. Let me explain. “Hypnosis” is the name given to a very natural process. It seems mysterious and magical but, in fact, [...]

“WHAT’S IT LIKE TO BE HYPNOTIZED?”

By ||Categories: Uncategorized|

Because hypnosis has a sense of mystery about it a common question I get is “what’s it like to be hypnotized?” A lot of people think hypnosis is like sleep because what they have seen are people completely relaxed and appearing to be asleep and unconscious. The truth is they are very much aware what is being told to them. Everyone has a slightly different experience but what hypnotized people have in common is that hypnosis is a highly focused state of concentration. With that in mind, imagine being both completely relaxed and comfortable and focusing intensely on something that [...]

HOW MINDFULNESS HELPS

By ||Categories: Uncategorized|

Hypnosis has the ability to change deep unconscious habits that seem outside of your conscious control. But there is a way to bring many habits under our control without resorting to fatigue producing “will power”. The process is called Mindfulness. I often encourage my hypnosis clients to practice a simple exercise in mindfulness. Mindfulness does not mean sitting cross-legged in meditating for hours. Instead, it is the very simple and intentional Act of paying attention. Putting all of your attention to what you are doing without judgement and without emotion. Mindfulness is the act of observing what you are experiencing [...]

HEROIN, METHAMPHETAMINE AND HYPNOSIS

By ||Categories: Uncategorized|

I would like to describe my experience with hypnosis and serious drug abuse, specifically heroin and methamphetamine (meth). I’ve had experience working with drug addiction and want to share my insights with those who know someone suffering from addiction. Addiction is a profoundly painful condition. Withdraws from heroin can be extremely painful. For some people hypnosis can eliminate or reduce the discomfort of withdraw but it is not something I, as a hypnotist, want to deal with. There is a detox period of up to a week a heroin addict must go through to get over the physical withdraws. At [...]

CONFESSION: I WAS A HYPNOTIST WHO SMOKED CIGARETTES

By ||Categories: Uncategorized|

“Giving up smoking is easy…I’ve done it hundreds of times.” ~Mark Twain It’s true. For a majority of my career as a hypnotist, while I was helping people quit smoking, I also smoked. I know that makes me seem like a hypocrite and I would agree. I started smoking a few years before I started my career in hypnosis. Smoking made be feel independent and rebellious. I also knew no good would come of smoking but, like every smoker, I suppressed that thought with a double dose of justification and denial. Also like many smokers, I quit smoking many times. [...]

HOW MUCH IS HYPNOSIS WORTH?

By ||Categories: Uncategorized|

Are you shopping for a hypnotist? Are you wondering what you should pay for hypnosis? Let me offer a perspective that comes from 20 years as a professional hypnotist.
