Liza is incredibly intuitive and gifted and has an uncanny gift to get to the root of any given problem and more importantly release what I didnt even know was underlying but was uncovered through hypnosis and powerful NLP techniques. I was a bit skeptical about what hypnosis was all about but she explained it so simply to me I knew I was in great hands and felt very comfortable. During our sessions we had she was so dedicated to helping me get out pain so I could get re-motivated to do the things I wanted to do again. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to go deeper to create real change in your life!

I am very happy with the services that I received from Dr. Murray S. Kaufman. The first time that I visited him I literally was a mess. I was dealing with IBS, and the condition was killing me because I didn't know how to live with it. I went to see Dr. Kaufman with the intention to receive a hypnosis protocol for IBS. I started the protocol; however, the doctor realized that I was suffering from anxiety disorder that was making the IBS flare up, and I started a therapy to work on that. Dr. Kaufman helped me to find the roots of my anxiety and how to deal with them. Every session was very productive, and I learned a lot about myself and dealing with my conditions. Now, I am in a much better place in life, and so thankful to Dr. Kaufman, because he helped me to overcome one of the darkest moments of my life. He is very knowledgeable, dedicated and professional. I recommend him from my heart to yours.

I think that when you come to Hypnosis Care it is usually because you have tried everything else out there. Finding my place in the world is more of an internal conflict I've dealt with for a long time. I knew I wanted to help others, I just didn't know how. After seeing results in myself with several techniques Bruce and Tracy used I was no longer questioning the life I wanted to lead. Seeing how everyone at Hypnosis Care was always had an intelligent solution to any problem, and they were flexible, I decided to join one of their classes. It was exciting to see what was going on behind the scenes. In class I was so comfortable that there wasn't a question I could not ask. The program was quick and soon enough I was able to help others. Reiki is a wonderful technique where no words are needed to make sure your client feels cared for. Not only was I able to learn how to care for others, I learned how to care for myself. I will always be grateful for the change in the quality of my life. The classes are truly priceless.

After struggling to manage my stress levels on my own, I went to see Jonathan Brugge in South Pasadena. This was my first time going to hypnotherapy, but now I wish I discovered it much sooner! For me, I found that you get all the great benefits of therapy, but then the hypnosis aspect leaves you feeling really calm and in control by the end of your session. I felt like my sessions really helped me realign my priorities (and I worked out some childhood traumas to boot!). All and all, I am very satisfied with my choice. Jonathan is very personable and made me feel comfortable. I genuinely felt with each session he cared about my progress, and sincerely wants to help people. Plus, he has a great tree view out his office window -- can't beat that.

I've finally started losing weight! I really wasn't sure the hypnotherapy sessions over the phone would be as effective as in person, but I'm so happy to be proved wrong. I also thought the weight loss for hypnotherapy would be you "programming" me to eat less and exercise more. I had no idea hypnotherapy could help me deal with my emotions, which was the driving factor for my eating habits. I felt "lighter" when our session was over, but I really didn't think anything in my life would change. Then I noticed my clothes getting looser in just a week or two. When we looked over the last couple of weeks, I had to admit that I wasn't as hungry nor was I eating as much as I did before. And I just started walking daily with my brother. I thought it was because I'd learned my blood pressure was high, but I know my weight has not been a healthy thing for me for a long time. The sudden motivation made me realize how effortless the results are with hypnosis. I'm doing things differently without having to think about it...just like you said it would happen. You were right!

When I went in for my appointment with Choury, I had mixed emotions. I was excited about what changes could be made but I was also nervous that it wouldn’t work. I’m a stressed out student and I had a huge exam coming up…I really needed this to calm me down and give me instant recall of information since part of my exam was timed. In the past, I had severe test anxiety so I would go in to take an exam and if my mind was racing too much and my emotions were running high, on parts of the exam I would literally blank. It was awful! Which brings me back to my appointment with Choury… Sitting in his presence put me at ease right away and any nervousness I’d had going in, simply vanished. When he started our session, the sound of his voice drifted me into a calm, comforting place where I felt safe…a place to tap into if I should ever feel I needed to revisit. Choury gave me a tool to use to remind me of that safe, calm feeling…a tool to use when taking exams. I did exactly that for my exam and I’m proud to say that it worked and I passed it with flying colors! I remained calm throughout the test and had instant recall of all information, exactly what he was working with me on. Choury, I can’t thank you enough for all that you’ve done and anyone that’s lucky enough to find you as their hypnotherapist will quickly know how amazing you are! I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you will help them achieve their goals as much as you helped me! You truly are the best!!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How does hypnosis work?

Hypnosis is a wellness technique that works by promoting positive behavioral or cognitive changes. During successful hypnosis, the client should be eased into a state of deep relaxation in which the conscious mind takes a back seat and the subconscious mind becomes more active. The client is often able to let go of critical thoughts and become receptive to the therapist’s suggestions. In this state of hypnosis, motivating suggestions can bypass your usual mental resistance and internal defense mechanisms. For example, even if you want to quit overeating cupcakes, you may have some level of resistance that your rational mind can’t overcome. During hypnosis, the positive suggestions made by the hypnotherapist can bypass your usual blocks, helping you to achieve the formerly unachievable: stopping overeating, quitting smoking, mastering public speaking, or losing your fear of heights. The goal of hypnosis is to strengthen and empower the client’s motivation, commitment and focus. Consider working with someone who is not just trained in hypnosis but also is a licensed therapist or psychotherapist who can bring their academic background into your session.

What can hypnosis help you with?

According to many sources including the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) which is part of the United States National Library of Medicine and a branch of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), hypnosis is scientifically proven to help relieve both mental challenges and physical pains. Hypnosis can alleviate stress and reduce pain after surgeries, has been shown to relieve anxiety in children in the emergency room, and can be useful for managing pain associated with everything from arthritis to migraines. Hypnosis is non-invasive and gives you a way to control pain or discomfort that might otherwise seem out of your hands. Hypnosis shouldn’t be used as a substitute for medical care, but may be an excellent complementary tool that is best provided by a trained therapist or licensed medical provider. The University of Maryland Medical Center shares many conditions for which hypnosis can be useful:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Tension headaches
  • Alopecia areata
  • Asthma
  • Phobias
  • Insomnia
  • Addictions
  • Bedwetting
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Labor and delivery
  • Skin disorders, such as acne, psoriasis and eczema (atopic dermatitis)
  • Stress
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Cancer-related pain
  • Weight loss
  • Eating disorders
  • Warts
  • Indigestion (dyspepsia)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Smoking cessation

How is hypnosis used in therapy?

Hypnosis is a powerful tool to help clients overcome challenging issues such as anxiety, phobias, pain management, hot flashes and more. Hypnosis is also a way to help let go of addictions like smoking, overeating and gambling. In and of itself, hypnosis is not a therapy, but it can be used in conjunction with therapy to empower and encourage the person receiving it to make positive change. Some people are more susceptible to hypnosis and will benefit more from hypnotherapy than others.

According to Dr. Clifford N. Lazarus, speaking for Psychology Today, hypnosis is a “genuine psychological phenomenon that has valid uses in clinical practice … hypnosis is a state of highly focused attention or concentration, often associated with relaxation, and heightened suggestibility. While under hypnosis (i.e., in a hypnotic trance), it seems many people are much more open to helpful suggestions than they usually are.” The suggestions made in a therapeutic setting get deep into a person’s brain, beyond their conscious thinking, leading to behavior change and the ability to overcome challenges that might otherwise seem insurmountable.

What is the effectiveness of hypnosis?

The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services recognizes the healing power of hypnosis and its proven effectiveness for anxiety, pain control, smoking cessation, headaches and more. Hypnosis may be safe and complementary way to augment medical attention you are receiving for a chronic illness or pain, or a way to resolve an addiction or phobia that you are otherwise unable to control. Hypnosis does not work on every person. When scientists began studying hypnosis in earnest, a report published by Stanford University titled “The Stanford Hypnotic Susceptibility Scale” demonstrated that different brains respond to hypnosis in varying degrees, and a very few do not respond at all. Working with a trained psychologist, you’ll soon determine whether you are a good candidate for the healing benefits of hypnotherapy.

During a hypnotherapy session, the therapist will bring you into a state of deep relaxation in which the critical, conscious part of your brain recedes and the subconscious mind becomes alert and focused. The therapist will make suggestions, based on your intended goals, that will take root in your subconscious mind. These suggestions should affect your thinking in a positive way and empower you to make change.
