I met Ram by chance. Before my encounter and session with him, I never would have sought out the help of a hypnotherapist. I didn't know anything about the field but my hunch was that there was not much substance behind it. After an hour and a half of sitting with Ram, however, my perspective has totally transformed, and my life has changed quickly and in more ways than I would have ever imagined it could, all at once. The first change which I am thankful for is in my daily routine. I have wanted to be an early riser my whole life, but never had the energy to do it. Since I met Ram I have been waking up early every morning with boat loads of energy, usually without an alarm clock. Now, somehow- and I couldn't imagine this being possible beforehand- it would be more exhausting for me to stay in bed than to get up. I have had more stamina in my workouts. During my workouts, I have been able to put in a lot more energy than I have in years. Because of a shoulder injury I suffered years ago, I have not done push-ups in a very long time. After our session I can do a lot of them. I was and have been able to view multiple internal barriers that have been obstructing me for a long time- having to do with relationships, finances, and family life. Specifically, I have been able to delve deeper and more meaningfully into old friendships and to create new ones with less fear and more genuineness. I had courage to move forward with my working relationships to sign a contract for a job that I love. I have been able to speak with my family in a more caring way. In general, I have been better at connecting with people both newly met and long known. The experience of all the things that I love has been enhanced, and I have been able to focus better on everything. This includes work, illustration, playing music, and simply listening to and speaking with people. Indeed- with communication, I have been more bold and sincere, as well as more patient. I have been able to reanalyze a lot of my past as well as view my present in a way through which I have been able to learn more and direct my behaviors in a way that is realistic, genuine, and increasingly effective towards my positive goals. I have been better able to cope with anxiety from any source, getting better at handling stressors in a way that is not draining but energizing. I have more constistantly been in a state of flow throughout my day, focusing on and appreciating everything I'm doing when I'm doing it, not wishing I was doing anything else when I am not doing it. One of the best things that came from my session with Ram is that I have been able to have more of a positive influence on people around me, in different ways that are important to them and which are fulfilling for me. Before I met Ram, I would have been skeptical of anyone making the claims I am making here. The only thing that has removed me from a state of disbelief is that these things are real. The fact that Ram was able to help me regardless of my initial skepticism of hypnotherapy speaks a lot to who he is as a person. He is transparent, generous, benevolent, and willing to be vulnerable. These are things that are noticeable about him within only the first few minutes of interacting with him. Combine this with the concept I better understand now that while in hypnosis, one can only take suggestions that one wants to take in, and it is easier to understand why he had such a profound influence on my life. It is in part because I trusted him and I wanted him to. The positive influence that he has had over me suggests that I was right to trust him and to take in his suggestions. I recommend Ram to any person who feels stuck in any way in their lives, and wants to change himself or herself to embrace every moment of life in a way that leads to growth, happiness, understanding, and a healthier and more vibrant community. - O.

I had been struggling with insomnia for quite awhile and have been taking Ambien. I decided to try Hypnotherapy to see if I could stop the cycle of taking meds in order to sleep. I met with Sher and found her to be very professional, a great listener and very helpful and empathetic to my issue. After just 2 sessions, I saw a marked improvement in my sleep patterns. After each session, I would receive a recording. Sher was very good at listening to my feedback and suggestions and modifying the next recording to better suit my requests. I still faithfully listen to a recording on a daily basis. Each of my recordings is targeted for a separate subconscious message to aid in my sleeping. I can pick and choose which recording will help me each day. I would highly recommend Sher as she is a talented Hypnotherapist and a special person.

    I was a student of Dr. Nikki Goldman for 6 months. She has years of experience with Hypnosis, NLP and Timeline Therapy. She listens intently which allows her to focus quickly on what you need and where to start to help you. I found her grasp of NLP to be very complete and impressive, and she taught it easily.

      Wendy Hill is the consummate professional therapist and human being. I've experienced the benefit of her work as a client, and as a student. I believe through my experiences with hypnosis, that "mental conditioning" should be a daily component of wellness, and that it's typically the missing link in a whole health campaign. Wendy can teach you how to improve any area of your life, by addressing what logically is "the beginning". Great mental health is going to enable great physical and even spiritual health. An empowered mind-body-spirit nature plays out in our daily relationships and the manner in which that affects career, finances, environment, and even the way we play. It all starts with a thought ... and Wendy is a master at helping you improve the quality of your thoughts.

      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.
