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.

Dr. John McGrail, through his clinical hypnosis techniques, has helped me make a six-month, aggressive chemotherapy program almost perfectly tolerable. Diagnosed with early-stage pancreatic cancer, my oncology doctor put me into a program that involves sitting every other week while machines pump cancer drugs into my system for around 4 hours. Then, as I leave the infusion center, the nurse connects a portable pump that drips even more drugs into my body for another 46 hours. Facing that and knowing how chemo can affect people with a whole range of symptoms (severe nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue/exhaustion), I chose Dr. McGrail to help me fortify and protect my body against those symptoms. That is exactly what he did over a course of just two hypnotic sessions. Before my chemo journey began, the oncology nurses told me that my attitude would play a big part in how I dealt with the bad effects chemo can bring. Thanks to Dr. McGrail, my attitude is winning the day at every encounter. I highly recommend him to anyone facing chemotherapy who seeks help with the process.

Dr. John is awesome! I came to him for issues with public speaking and we worked through that by going really deep into other aspects of my life and upbringing. His confidence and belief in his hypnosis methods were a huge draw. If you’re willing to do the work, put In The time, go deep into your feelings and subconscious, he can help change your life and outlook!

I highly recommend Dr. McGrail he really takes the time to get to know your situation personally, so that he can tailor the sessions to best suit your needs. He explains everything in a clear and comforting way that makes the process not only easy but enjoyable. I truly can’t recommend him enough and am so grateful for our work together.

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.
Dr. John McGrail, A Better You, Inc.'s reply
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
