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.

"When I first called Susan I felt like my life was so toxic that I would die. I Susan helped me to zero in on how the toxicity in my life: alcohol, smoking cigarettes,and general negative thinking were not my fault but neither was I powerless to overcome them. Susan helped me to see the how these behaviors stemmed from the trauma I lived through as a child and that I could rise above them by understanding the reasons why I hid behind the alcohol. As I came to understand these connections, I was able to acknowledge and accept the behaviors without blaming myself. The hypnosis we did made it so much easier to find that inner peace and self acceptance that the need to drink and smoke seemed to melt away without effort. I was able to stop drinking for the first time since I was 15 years old. I also quit smoking. I learned to use self-hypnosis to reinforce and recreate this calmness when needed so that the cravings disappeared.. Susan taught me how to love and accept myself as I was. That I had worth and value.. She taught me how to have compassion and understanding for myself so that I could begin to lay a new foundation for healthy self-regard. I learned the how to take care of myself and my own emotional needs instead of draining myself by constant people pleasing. I felt instantly connected with Susan as she shared her own journey in this battle of drowning self-hatred in alcohol and how she found her own inner peace. I felt she understood me and that helped me to accept and love myself. The compassion she showed me enabled me to have compassion for myself. It was as if she walked alongside me on my journey. I felt heard, acknowledged, understood and accepted for the first time in my life. My thinking began to change. I saw reality more clearly and without self-judgement. I remember it was like a lightening bolt hit me when I realized I could make choices about alcohol, my mind and way of thinking. It became easy make better choices and easier to forgive myself when I made a mistake. I found myself more able to pause and think before jumping into familiar self-destructive situations. I learned how the emotional side of the brain and the logical brain worked in my behavior. I learned how the emotional brain could disconnect from the logical brain and cause me to operate on raw emotion. As I learned about that phenomena called Emotional Hijacking so that I could navigate back to logic when emotion took over. I learned was meant by the saying "when the student is ready the teacher arrives". I was ready and thank God I found her. "

I never thought I would do hypnotherapy and felt like it was a little "woo woo" but I was open minded. My experience with PK has been amazing. I initially went to PK in hopes to work on my business goals and plans. I felt like I was stuck. As we started to work together she definitely helped me recognize that it just wasn't related to my business, she opened pandora's box. Together we discovered that I have more deep personal issues related to my work ethic (I don't know how to relax and have no "me" time) and my heart's tug-of-war between being a mother/wife and an entrepreneur. I have made so much progress in the past few months and continue to work on things that I didn't realize I had issues with. My heart, mind and body feel much more in sync, at ease and most importantly more productive! Thank you PK!

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.

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!

    Jade was so patient and reassuring with me as a client, she is understanding and genuinely cares. Jade has passion for what she does. I was unsure of hypnotherapy because it is a first experience for me. She is great at what she does and opened my eyes and mind through hypnosis to better self awareness. I am very excited to further my journey into myself with Jade as my guide. I am learning to except all the peaces of myself and become a healthier happier me.

      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.
