Introduction: I have worked with thousands of clients and workshop students from around the world, and have been in full time clinical practice for more than 20 years. My exclusive process called Synthesis, which works on both conscious and subconscious levels, helps my clients achieve their goals very quickly. We are all naturally resistant to change, even when we know it is something that will be very good for us and something that we want. I help my clients and students overcome that resistance very quickly, often in half the number of sessions it might take using hypnotherapy alone. We're all busy so the quicker we can help you think, feel and act the way you wish, the sooner you can enjoy being A Better You! Rule #1 is Life is Supposed to be Fun! RATED BEST IN L.A. BY THUMBTACK.COM I love to help my clients and students realize how powerful they really are, and how simple it can be to start living a happy, productive, abundant, joyful life-- which is our birthright. So many of us feel stuck, broken and hopeless, trapped in a state of unhappiness, low self esteem, and held back by limiting beliefs. I love, love to help make that all disappear, usually in a matter of weeks.

I want to start off by saying: I can’t say enough about Dr John McGrail. He is an absolute professional. His hypnotherapy work released years and years of fear, apathy and resentment. I have tried hypnotherapy before but it never seemed to click. After my first visit I knew things were going to be much different and much better; and they are. For the last 25 years I have been searching for a way to find peace in my life. Nothing came close until I worked with Dr McGrail. I don’t have the words to tell you how effective his methodology and style is. His work with me has changed my life forever for the “so much better.” John did in 5 weekly visits what nothing else did in 25 years. It's not even close. Thank you Dr John! W Dennis

I came to Dr. McGrail to address mounting anxiety that would be triggered at very inconvenient times. I did not know the source of the anxiety, or why it was becoming prevalent. As a professional, a mom, a wife, I could not continue dealing with random bouts of anxiety that would make me feel uncomfortable and self-conscious. Dr. McGrail predicted 6 sessions would do the trick, and we were actually complete after 3. The sessions were deeply moving and profound, and my self-triggering anxiety is no longer an issue. I'm amazed and forever grateful. In addition to relieving my anxiety, those sessions helped rebalance my energy in other noticeable ways. My unsolicited advice is -- don't overthink it. If you're looking for a hypnotherapist, you probably have a good reason for it. Dr. McGrail is the real deal.

Dr. McGrail helped me live my best life. I started seeing him because I was suffering from severe anxiety and I wanted to see if hypnosis would help. Nothing else was helping, not exercise, not medication, and not cognitive behavioral therepy, not for me anyways. I was skeptical because I didn’t know much about hypnotherapy, but i was desperately searching for help and something in the universe called me to Dr. McGrail. When we first started, I had relentless anxious thoughts, PTSD, and generalized anxiety. Every moment of my life was anxious, even in my sleep with nightmares. I had suicidal thoughts and fantasies because i just couldn’t see a way out of my anxiety. I started making progress after the 1st session, but after the 4th session i was on my way to being a new person. I could relax again at home. I had moments of peace and calm that i hadn’t had in over two years. I could enjoy my time with friends and family and be present instead of being in my own thoughts. I could see a new life for myself. I regained my hope. Once I could see the possibility for peace inside myself, things started to change quickly. I more peace and happiness inside me than i could have imagined when i started. I continue to use what i have learned from him even a year later. I can truly say that i am back to being myself and i feel renewed. No longer weighed down and held back by my anxiety. I am more confident and moving my career forward. Even taking chances and opportunities that would have scared me away before. For as long as i can remember, whenever i had a wish to make (on a star or dandelion), i wished to be happy. Now i do not have to make that wish, i already have it The work that we did together saved my life. I am so grateful for Dr. McGrail and the transformation he guided me through.

Kirstin, thank you so much for the very kind words. It was truly a joy to work with you, and I am honored to have been able to guide you through your transition; even more delighted that you’re still using the tools and feeling empowered and happy. That’s the way life is supposed to work. You are a very special person and I wish you many, many years of abundance, joy, happiness and everything you dream of. Thanks again for taking the time to post this. Blessings, Dr. John

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We do have standard or set session fees, although I am always willing to work with clients who may need help with the finances. Our fees vary depending upon the services desired and required, and our clients' situation. Therapeutic services and sessions are more involved as a rule, and thus, a bit more expensive then straight coaching sessions. Many clients opt for (and need) a combination of the two in some form or other, working both with Dr. McGrail and Coach Lynne-Anne. It's really impossible to give exact quotes here, as we treat every client and every case on an individual basis.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I always start by getting to know and understand my clients situation, sensibilities, values, and desires. I then design a customized, personal course of treatment which ensures they achieve the results as quickly as possible.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I received my initial training from HMI, the first nationally accredited college of hypnotherapy. I then earned a PhD in clinical hypnotherapy from Breyer State University. I am a member of the American Hypnosis Association, The National Guild of Hypnotists, and the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association, all of which require annual continuing education to maintain certification. I am also certified in NLP-- Neuro Linguistic Programming, EFT-- Emotional Freedom Technique, Therapeutic Imagery, Timeline Therapy, and I created my Proprietary Synthesis techniques, the subject of my book, The Synthesis Effect, You Direct Path to Power and Transformation. I continue to learn and train every day to ensure my clients get the very best care and get their results quickly and profoundly.
