If you want answers, go see Ewa. I met with this amazing woman not knowing what to expect or how hypnosis could help me. I trusted Ewa right away as she has a very kind and supportive demeanor. After getting settled, she helped me reach a very relaxed state. I was aware of what was going on, although I felt distant and calm. Ewa was able to support me in taking a little journey inside myself where I found crystal clear answers and truth I normally would not be aware of. It really helped me clarify my relationship with my girlfriend and deal with some big life decisions. After our work was done, I left feeling completely refreshed and energetic. I would recommend this woman to anyone who needs healing or is dealing with life changes. She is a great support to get you to the other side! Ryan G.

After three years of dating, my girlfriend and I decided that we needed help in repairing our struggling sex life. We chose Hunter because of her expertise as both a Sex and Relationship Coach and a Clinical Hypnotherapist. Upon meeting Hunter, and realizing the gem that she is in the coaching world, we knew our relationship could finally achieve its true potential. She is the single most comforting and warmest practitioner I have worked with. She is funny and happy, and from the very minute we walked in the door, I felt at ease and was able to immediately open up about my problems. I was quite nervous to start sex coaching as I had never talked about my sexual concerns with a professional before. I had been a pornography addict for more than half my life, and it wasn’t until I met my girlfriend, that I finally realized I had to recognize my addiction and come clean. Unfortunately, despite coming to terms with my addiction, our sex life didn’t recover. Hunter’s work with hypnosis has quelled my continuous urges to view pornography, and through Hunter’s coaching, my girlfriend and I more fully understand our issues, as well as our individual needs - both sexual and non-sexual. I can honestly say that Hunter has changed my life. My girlfriend and I finally have a stable, regular sex life. Dan B.

I originally began seeing Beth back in 2014 for anger and anxiety issues. While I still have some work to do, my life is exponentially better as a result of working with Beth. I had seen a traditional therapist for years and it helped shed light on things, but did little toward actually helping me solve my problems. Thanks to Beth’s commitment to her clients’ health and happiness, I now know what my true calling in life is and I am working toward it every day. This alone has reduced my anxiety and anger, as I am finally feeling happier and more connected with my true self. Also worth noting is that Beth is not only a gifted healer, she is an incredibly empathetic, non-judgmental, and professional person. As a result, I look forward to every single appointment I have with her. If you are feeling “stuck,” as I did when I originally sought out depth hypnosis, I encourage you to call Beth today. Your happiness is more than worth it and she will do everything in her power to help you achieve your goals, whatever that means for you. “May you be free of suffering, may you be a peace.”

As a serial student, I am on a constant quest for self-improvement and life’s truths. This journey began in college with a Psychology degree but after a traumatic divorce I quickly dispelled traditional forms of therapy when I discovered and experience Brief Solution Therapy. I also am a huge fan of Tony Robbins but in my analysis his techniques where remarkably effective on the conscious level. I knew that personal limiting beliefs from my abused childhood residing in my subconscious were preventing me from being my best self. So my journey continued into NLP which in turn led me to Ericksonian hypnosis. All highly valid and powerful forms of therapy yet something was still missing. Enter Randy and Brainspotting. Isn’t life grand!?! “There are no accidents” as it’s only fitting that I write this review on Thumbtack as this is the site that I somehow happened upon that led me to Randy and this strange brief therapy called Brainspotting. Randy immediately responded to my inquiry stating that “Brainspotting goes deeper than hypnosis” so of course I just had to try it. Without spoiling your personal Brainspotting experience in describing the process let me focus on the results: Profound. After just one session I felt an inner calm and peace that I’ve never before experience. Not only was I free of daily struggles but the impact has not been just inner-world but immediately manifested in my outer-world as well. Life has “flowed” effortlessly with tangible new opportunities that have been transformative. Most importantly my newly discovered better self has dramatically and positively affected the lives of my family and the people I love most. What could be more important? Brainspotting has been life-altering for me as I’m certain it will be for you but lastly and most importantly is Randy himself. The love, empathy and compassion I experienced from Randy guiding me through my personal journey of self-discovery as left me in awe of his humanity.

I first hired Regan to help me lose weight about 5 years ago and to help me get over being in two abusive relationships. He used "Tapping" and Hypnosis, both of which he taught me how to do on my own, to help me solve both problems. I lost 72 pounds and have keep it off so far. I no longer have the panic attacks caused by the memories of my abuse. He is now coaching me how to be a success at my new career. I have a whole new life and purpose now and have never been happier. My son is now using him and I love seeing the changes in him. He wants to send in a review too. I rate Regan at 5 stars plus.

I came to my first experience of hypnosis from what is perhaps an unusual upbringing. There were layers of complexity, trauma and inner conflict involving my family background, the religious teachings of my father and the direction my life was taking personally and professionally. This was particularly around my authentic sexuality (I identify as a lesbian). I had been contemplating using hypnosis but I had not yet found a situation or a practitioner in which I felt open to trying it. Turning my state of consciousness over to the direction of another was a little scary for me. In my father’s belief system, hypnosis was the tool of the devil! I felt an immediate connection with Kaia and sensed that she would create a safe container whereby I could begin exploring my issues through hypnotherapy. Moving into trance, I experienced a powerful vision in which two power animals came to me. They had been waiting for me to give them space and voice so they could offer clarity about how to face my fears, make peace with myself and move forward. Kaia guided this session beautifully and a kaleidoscope of knowings spilled into me. Missing pieces began to emerge. Strength flowed into me. I felt transformed and able to more fully address my lingering doubts about my direction, and solid confidence in my choices. Since that first session, the work has continued with Kaia and evolved. My spirituality and sexuality have become aligned. I am learning how to integrate what I experienced in hypnosis into my day-to-day life. Hypnosis has supported me to know myself on a very deep level. WK

I feel confident with public speaking now!!! The techniques that Ozzie used made it very simple to follow and understand but most of all very effective. I highly recommend it to everyone. Ria

    I've had more than 1 session with this woman. All 3 times I was going through heavy things - one time i had just had a spinal surgery and Christina gave me a session as i lay in my bed healing from that - that i received counsel on through the alchemical hypnosis process. i even reconnected with my first true guide/friend - my childhood dog. Her sessions brought clarity to me during dark doubtful times and felt restorative physically, emotionally and spiritually. All 3 sessions felt very different and were honed toward my situation. i highly recommend Christina's services.

    With Christine's guidance, I am healing my childhood wounds as well as my barriers currently limiting my abilities to like myself. I have had some types of therapies for the past 45 years; since my late teens. Hypnotherapy with Christine is helping me with the integrate my human reasoning & my mammalian brain so the energies complement each other. My goal right now is to become my own best friend. After two sessions I feel "lighter" & more at ease. I am experiencing flexibility and acceptance of the moments at hand. I'm soaking in the truth I never considered: I am just right by standing where my feet are. I am stable and secure with myself. No person, place, or thing (including my own thoughts) can diminish me. I trust Christine and look forward to our next visit together. She is a humble master of her expertise. She is passionate and kind. From one of her grateful clients, a woman in Napa

    About

    I do the work I do because it calls me. It calls me to utilize my gifts of intuition to see where individuals may not see, to hear where individuals may not hear and feel what individuals may have difficulty expressing. These gifts, when associated with the coaching process help clients experience amazing "Aha" moments and breakthrough what appeared as barriers or blocks to living the life they really want and the success they deserve.

    My services are customized to meet the needs and preferences of each of my clients. I strongly believe that while we all carry universal feelings and experiences, we are all so very unique.

    About

    We (Jim and Lynn) have been happy "newlyweds" for over 30 years, sharing common interests and passions. This makes our practice unique, with each of us sharing our special strengths and talents, truly complimenting one another. Clients get "two for one" when they sign up with us, as it is not uncommon for a client to meet individually one time with me and another time with Lynn, making sure the client meets with the person with the specific expertise to assure success. Our clients get the full advantage of each one's unique expertise and specialty services. Both of us are highly skilled hypnotherapists but with specialities in different areas. I have over forty years of counseling experience and specialize in addiction and 12-step support, family and relationship problems, memory/recall (test taking), spirituality and resolution of traumatic events. Lynn specializes in smoke cessation, building confidence and self-esteem, weight management, and professional development (e.g. accomplishing goals, public speaking, procrastination). Of course, both of us handle many other concerns and we consult each other regularly to be sure each client receives the very best we can offer.

    About

    At Berkeley Hypnosis, I can help you successfully: *Stop Smoking I use five techniques to cover the different aspects that keep you coming back to cigarettes like an ex you know is bad for you, but you can't seem to break up with. I help you break your attachment to cigarettes, break free of the three or four cigarettes per day that you really enjoy (like the one with your morning coffee or the one with dinner or the ones during your breaks at work). I also assist you in connecting to the subconscious part of you that still wants to smoke and help you make that part of you comfortable with quitting. (Most hypnotherapists skip this part, which is the real reason most people go back to smoking.) Plus I help you hypnotically rehearse your first happy day as a non-smoker. Most people become permanent non-smokers in one session. *Lose Weight You'll heal emotional eating, overeating, addictions to specific foods and understand and release the the subconscious original cause of why you gained the weight in the first place. People typically succeed in permanently changing their relationship to food in 3 -5 sessions. *Overcome Anxiety, Phobias and PTSD Having overcome anxiety and PTSD myself, I have a full arsenal of tools, (as well as a system to help you develop your own tools) that will help you get over anxiety, PTSD and phobias in 1 -12 sessions. I'll work with you to retrain your brain to stop sending you anxiety symptoms. You'll find and heal the original causes of your anxiety, phobias and PTSD. I'll also help you let go of stuck emotions from past events, using visualizations or techniques where you send this energy out of your body. Most phobias can be released in 1 -3 sessions. Anxiety and PTSD usually take 4 -12 sessions, with noticeable relief during the first hour.we work together. *Depression I can help you change how you react to what's going on in your body and mind when you have sensations that you label as "depression." I will also give you tools you can work with to get you moving when you feel stuck and listless. Plus, just like with anxiety, I can help you discover the original subconscious cause of your depression; you will also experience easy ways to release the stuck emotions in your body from past events. I also offer a technique that helps you get past the feeling like part of your old personality is missing and bring back the energy, drive and willingness to be fully present in the world that you once had. Working with depression typically takes 4 -12 sessions. *Anger Management Having gotten over anger issues myself, I understand this territory well. On the one hand, I can teach you techniques that will instantly calm you when anger is triggered. On the other hand, almost anything that makes you angry actually comes from the pain of an earlier, unresolved wound, usually from childhood. I can help you get in touch with these wounds and heal them through hypnosis. I can also show you how to discover what really bothers you seconds after someone says or does something that angers you in the moment, so that you easily let go of your anger at them. Here are some testimonials from clients about our work together: “I’ve been to other hypnotherapists, but my three sessions with Mahesh were the most successful I’ve ever had. He helped me stop smoking, and to eliminate my sciatica pain and my neuropathy. I would recommend him to anybody and I would go back to him if I had any kind of angst, whether it was physical, mental or emotional.” ~Maria I., Oakland “I went to see Mahesh for restorative hypnosis after many years of struggling with an addiction to a specific person. I had tried years of therapy, was medicated by psychiatrists, went to SLAA [twelve-step] meetings, and nothing was working. Deou will begin to feel betterspite being a high functioning executive, I had lost friendships, relationships, and jobs because of the addiction and was completely suicidal. I had never tried hypnotherapy before, and walked in with a reasonable dose of skepticism. Mahesh made me feel completely comfortable with the process. …The impact has been transformational. For about two weeks after the session, I felt a strong energy coursing through my body. I had a new clarity and sense of strength that culminated in a calm acceptance. For the first time, I began to move on. I couldn’t believe it. I started living my life. It was the beginning of such a profound change in me as a human that I don’t believe I could ever feel suicidal again. My deepest gratitude to you, Mahesh.” ~Sarah C., San Francisco “I started to see Mahesh Grossman of Berkeley Hypnosis to work on opening my heart and improving my relationships. The work we’ve done together has led to significant inner growth for me. In hypnosis, I’ve been able to heal aspects of my childhood experiences with my mother, my father and my oldest brother. I also discovered a secret that was kept from me when I was three years old that made a particular event more understandable. Through hypnosis, I’m able to imagine living a happier childhood than I actually had, and surprisingly, the effect stays with me long after our session and transforms me. Trauma is relieved and wounds are healed. As a result, I’m more open and vulnerable in my life and my relationships with my wife, my son, and most importantly, with myself, have all deepened.” ~Daniel P., Berkeley

    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

    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.

     

    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.
