1) Custom Hypnosis Recording Service:

With this service, you simply let me know what it is you would like the
help with. I will then create and record personalized hypnosis session
recordings for you that address you by name and help you specifically
with what you are needing assistance with and the challenges you need
help with to overcome. These sessions will then be sent directly to your
email box where you download them to your computer and then upload
them to your preferred listening device: cell phone, MP3 player, etc.

Clinical hypnosis is a powerful and effective therapy technique
promoting powerful, all-natural change and improvement through
strengthening one’s psychological motivation, focus, and commitment.
The mind is the single most powerful factor in any emotional or
behavioral change. Condition your mind, and powerful, positive changes
to your habits and emotions will follow.

There is nothing scary or mysterious about clinical hypnosis. With my
hypnosis recordings, you’ll just sit or lie down, make yourself
comfortable, push play on your music player (MP3 player, computer, CD
player, etc.), close your eyes, and simply relax and focus on my voice for
about 25 minutes (the typical length of my hypnosis sessions). You’ll
have the easy part. Throughout the session, I’ll offer various directives to
further relax, visualize some different scenes, and give many direct and
indirect suggestions throughout to change and improve your life
according to your goals and desires. That's it!

2) What Hypnosis Is / How It Works:  

By being in a more relaxed, focused state (called a "trance"), your usual
conscious resistance against change naturally lowers, helping you to
become much more open to and accepting of the suggestions to change
that follow.  Then, as your mind naturally begins to promote these
changes and ideas, your physical and emotional feelings improve
accordingly, followed by behavioral and lifestyle changes. Remember—
your mind is in charge. Hypnosis is simply a way to tap into the immense
powers of your mind to promote the changes you wish. Using your mind
for change is much more effective than struggling against the old
conscious and subconscious attitudes that have kept you stuck and
frustrated for so long.

Each personalized session is recorded just for you, addressing you by
name, with my professional grade microphone and computer. That way,
you’ll reinforce and greatly strengthen your new mindset repeatedly
whenever you can simply relax, focus, and listen to your personalized
sessions at home.  The more you practice, the more you will further
strengthen and accelerate your positive changes and improvements. I
suggest listening to one session each day whenever you can close your
eyes, relax, focus, and have about 25 minutes of private time to yourself.
If you are too busy to listen at any other time, listening as you lie down
for bed at night is fine.  Falling asleep to the hypnosis is acceptable,
although you will gain even more from it when you stay awake and
collaborate with the suggestions.    

NOTE:  have no fear—you are always in control during the hypnosis.  
You always have the power.  Even though you’ll be in a more relaxed,
focused state, you will never do anything that you wouldn’t be willing to
do in real life.  Therefore, there is nothing scary or mysterious about
hypnosis.  Think about it—we all naturally drift in and out of trance
states each day.  Clinical hypnosis simply utilizes these psychological
states to promote powerful, positive changes in your life.

3) How this Service Compares to Live Hypnosis:  

Live hypnosis is good, but in many ways my custom hypnosis recording
service is much better.  Most live hypnosis sessions do not include an
audio recording of the sessions, which means all of the psychological
conditioning and improvements you want need to occur in the live office
session, which is a lot to ask. Most issues people possess are more
challenging than that. Effectiveness tends to be limited, often requiring
many additional live visits to the hypnotist's office for more and more
costly sessions, often over months of visits and sessions. Very costly
and inconvenient.  

On the other hand, with this high quality, highly effective custom
hypnosis recording service, you will only need to purchase 1-4 hypnosis
audio sessions which will be created and recorded just for you that you
can listen to over and over as many times as needed to condition and
strengthen the suggestions for positive change over weeks, months, and
years.  Included will be easy to follow step-by-step session use
instructions as well.  Furthermore, because no physical office visits are
required--the sessions will be emailed right to you for download--my
service is much more convenient than live hypnosis.

Finally, the overwhelming majority of hypnotists out there are not
doctoral level, licensed clinical psychologists like me. Most just have an
easily obtained hypnosis certification, often through an online course or
book. Therefore, the quality of the hypnotist's hypnosis skills are often
highly questionable. With this service, you can know you will be getting
a high quality result with my service because of my graduate level
degrees, psychotherapy licenses, and experience in the world of
psychotherapy and hypnosis.

4) The Effectiveness of Hypnosis:

Clients and customers often ask me some version of the question, “how
effective is hypnosis?”  My response is that it is very effective for most
things people come in for, most of the time.  However, since I’ve done
hypnosis since 2001, I’ve noticed that the ultimate effectiveness of the
hypnosis will generally depend much more on your focus and practice
than most other factors.  Therefore, you can have strong confidence in
the effectiveness of my hypnosis services if you commit to: 1) do your
best to relax and focus during the sessions, and 2) regularly practice
your sessions to reinforce the positive changes that follow.

Hypnosis is not a “magic bullet” for change, as there is none.  However,
used correctly and persistently, hypnosis is the single most powerful and
effective therapeutic technique to promote change that I’m aware of.  I've
seen it change lives and do wonders for those willing to engage in the
process. Just remember that if you can reasonably relax, focus, and
visualize, and you possess an inner desire to change, then hypnosis will
likely be very helpful to you.

I can personally attest to hypnosis as a wonderful, powerful approach to
promote positive change. I myself have lost and kept off over 70 pounds
through the hypnosis I received back in 2001.  I act as my own
testimonial and my own reference.  I went from 273 pounds down to 200,
and have stayed around 203-207 pounds ever since.  Feel free to email me
and I will send you some of my own “before” and “after” pictures:

5) Research on Hypnosis:

Some prospective hypnosis clients ask if hypnosis as a therapy
technique in general has been shown to be effective.  In short, yes it
has.  Very much so.  Below you will find a few brief research studies of
the many out there supporting the effective use of hypnosis.  Here is
some research support for three of the more popular reasons people seek

Anxiety/Anxiety Related Issues:

Hypnosis, especially self-hypnosis such as like this custom hypnosis
recording service, has been found across 6 large studies to notably
lessen and reduce anxiety. Specifically, it was found that self-hypnosis
training represents a rapid, cost-effective, nonaddictive and safe
alternative to medication for the treatment of anxiety-related conditions.


Weight Loss:

In a meta-analysis collecting numerous studies on hypnosis and weight
loss, this study found that dieters receiving hypnosis lost about 2 ½
times more weight than those not receiving hypnosis, and that these
losses became stronger with time

(Source = Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology Volume 64,
Issue 3, June 1996, Pages 517-519).

Smoking Cessation:

A study found that those engaging in at least 4 sessions of hypnosis
were able to quit smoking with a 66% success rate, versus the lower
success rates of attempting to quit through other means, such as will
power (2-7%), medication (25%), or behavior modification (25%).

(Source = Hammond, D.C. (1990). Handbook of hypnotic suggestions and
metaphors. New York: W. W. Norton).

Pain Management:

A study of 200 women cancer patients by the Mount Sinai School of
Medicine receiving hypnosis before surgery reported about half of the
pain, intensity, unpleasantness, nausea, fatigue, and discomfort

(Source = Journal of the National Cancer Institute Volume 99, Issue 17,
August, 2007, Pages 1304-1312).

6) About Myself and My Credentials:

I’ve been doing psychotherapy since 1996 and hypnosis since 2001.  I am
a licensed clinical psychologist with 8 years of annual 3-day hypnosis
training seminars with world renown expert Dr. Michael Yapko—hypnosis
trainer of graduate-level psychotherapists. Complimenting my hypnosis
training and certification, I also possess a Doctorate in Psychology and 2
mutually supportive graduate-level psychotherapy degrees and licenses
(in clinical psychology
and in marriage & family therapy). I regularly work
with custom hypnosis clients referred to me through the online referral
service Thumbtack. To view my Thumbtack profile and reviews, please

NOTE:  Interestingly, hypnosis today is often conducted by those
possessing a "hypnosis certification" only with no psychotherapy degree
or license whatsoever. Since hypnosis is a technique
of psychotherapy,
that's somewhat like having some training in just 1 surgery technique
and actually doing surgeries, but without going to medical school or
possessing an MD. Risky and questionable. Truth be told, there are no
mandated requirements for such hypnosis certifications and their
requirements and training quality vary widely. Therefore, it is best to find
a hypnotherapist like myself with a legitimate graduate degree and
license in some form of psychotherapy: clinical psychologist, marriage &
family therapist, or clinical social worker.

I look forward to working with you!
