Gabriella is amazing. She helped me gain the courage to leave my ex and supported me all the times I failed. She was never judgemental and has always given me the tools for me to realize what I have to do. She has this amazing way of making you realize things for yourself. I can honestly say Im truly the happiest I've ever been. Not because my life changed magically but because of the way I deal with things and handle things - all because of her. On a side note, there have been times when I haven't been regular about my sessions and I've texted her asking if she could talk -- and she has made it happen...sometimes within 15 minutes! She truly does care about her clients and is such a wonderful life coach.

I'll admit, I didn't know what to expect when I first went to work with Larry. It was my first experience with hypnosis for any purpose but Larry was not only professional but a calming influence throughout the entire process. Starting with our initial phone consultation to the moment I sat down in his office, I felt like I was in good hands. More importantly - the treatment works! I went in with a specific problem I was looking to work on and, after an hour of his treatment, I immediately noticed a change and started feeling better. It felt like a great burden was lifted from my psyche and I was looking at the world through a different set of eyes. Any doubts that I may have had of his method actually working were immediately vanquished and I began to live my life free of the demons that previously haunted me on a daily basis. My wife and I are scheduled to work with Larry in the near future to continue to strengthen our communication and conflict resolution skills, and I will definitely work with him again personally. I highly recommend this service and cannot speak enough about the results.

Stopped smoking in just one session. I was a huge skeptic re: hypnosis. I'm humbled and I'm a believer. This guy was something special! His voice is so soothing. His manner confident without being cocky.

Omar is an expert in change management through hypnosis. If you have a bad habit you want to break, you want to advance in your life/career or want to build confidence, Omar has the experience to help you achieve those goals. I wanted to build confidence and increase productivity for my life and my career. In just the first session, he was able to guide me to the blockers that were buried deep within my subconscious... remove them by bringing them to the surface and dealing with them head on. He then replaced them with positive reinforcement that has since helped me power through launching a new company. I see him once a week to continue with personal growth and for help in powering through issues that are holding me from moving forward with success. I was impressed by the way he was sympathetic to the things I was struggling with as well as his determination to help me change as if they were his own issues. He is incredibly personable and genuine. I give my highest recommendation.

THE SHORT REVIEW I had an amazing hypnosis experience with Elena Beloff. In short, I found Elena to be very professional, kind natured an extremely talented. I would advise anyone interested in hypnosis to leap at the opportunity to work with her. THE LONG REVIEW I am a professional actor, and I had been experiencing debilitating nerves surrounding auditions. After interviewing me and asking questions about the issues that might be causing my anxiety, Elena tailored her hypnosis suggestions to my particular needs. It never felt like she was rehashing some canned script that she uses for every client she sees (not that that would really matter, I suppose). Her calm and reassuring tone was equally matched to the confidence behind her words. She new she could help me, and that gave me great confidence. THE OVERALL RESULT I waited to post this review until I'd had an audition so I could give an honest assessment. The result: After three solid auditions with little or nerves, I relieved to say that I feel completely 85% - 95% better. Before working with Elena, I was stammering over my lines, I was unable to stay in the moment; and I had horrible cotton mouth--not an ideal circumstance for a "so-called" professional. After working with Elena, I approach each audition like it's part of the job; I am calm and even excited before entering the room (very new); and most importantly, I am nailing the work. No castings yet, but the feedback I'm getting is in a different universe. Once again, if you are in search of a qualified, professional hypnotist, you should leap at the opportunity to work with Elena Beloff.

Admittedly I was a bit skeptical before trying QHHT, not because I had any doubts about the wonderful woman who would be working on me , Doreen Devore, but because I am a yoga and meditation teacher and very holistic man and have tried seemingly every different treatment modality out there in order to find some semblance of inner peace , get off my own case, and establish increased solitude in my daily existence. I saw Doreen after a break-up of a quite long relationship and was still in the grieving phase. I am by nature inherently anxious, and thus am prescribed beta-blockers to keep my adrenalin from rising too often and Valium for panic-attacks. I also suffered from intermittent back pain as a result of a lumbar disc herniation over four years ago that still affected my alignment and had a negative impact on the quality and duration of my sleep. I regularly frequented chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, my shrink , Reiki healers and even know a couple of shamans who specialize in soul retrieval and do a lot of chanting and drumming in their healing sessions. None of this could have prepared me for the eye-opening, cathartic, trippy experience Doreen was about to guide me through. In advance I wrote down a clear list of questions I would like answered and Doreen told me she would do her best to commune with whatever powers that be to seek out the answers. I remember the session vaguely, but was in an almost trance-like state as Doreen took me back and spoke to me in past incarnations or lives and even looked ahead to my future , telling me that many of my goals would eventually be attained and how it would occur. She told me things about my life nobody had any business knowing or had been told before. She asked the higher-ups to lessen the pain in my back and my anxiety inducing OCD symptoms. Upon the cessation of our evening session I left in a blissful state , feeling very floaty yet contemplative , yet also revitalized. My ex-girlfriend no longer harbored any place in the forefront of my consciousness, my posture seemingly improved and my back pain diminished substantially and I slept like a baby all after night one. Since then I have been a more keen observer of opportunity in my life and have gotten four new yoga teaching jobs since I saw her less than one month ago. Furthermore, my moods are more stable as I'm less anxious, have decreased the dose of my beta-blockers and now just keep the Valium in my medicine cabinet in case of emergency. My yoga practice, sex life, day-to-day level of happiness and optimism regarding the future have all experienced a dramatic shift for the better. I can not explain the efficacy of this experience to enough people and all it required was a single session in Doreen's comforting hands. She is truly an expert at QHHT and someone I would highly recommend to friends and family alike. Thank you Doreen for helping me get many of the things that were ailing me in life back in order. One love. Om Shantih!

    I have seen Donna many times both for hypnosis and meditation. She is an amazing and gifted hypnotist and person! She knows how to get to the core of things in an unbelievably intuitive way. Donna has helped me in my personal life in ways I cannot even begin to describe. She's gentle and loving, and makes her clients feel cared about and supported. I went in for hypnosis as a sceptic, having been unable to be hypnotized at various other times in my life. First session with Donna made me a believer!

    I went to Craig for help in 2017 out of desperation. I wanted more out of life. A new career, direction and more money. I was adept at self sabotage and it finally dawned on me that I might need help re-wiring my brain. I found Craig on Yelp. His reviews were excellent so I made an appointment and met with him for Hypnotherapy. I must say that is one of the BEST decisions of my life. In one year I started a new position, got four (that's right, (4) FOUR) raises and a promotion. When you are with Craig you will feel like you are visiting your good friend. He takes his time with you until he has the information he needs to help you effectively. I am so grateful that I took a chance on him. I have recommended several of my friends and colleagues to him and those who went benefited as well. Try him out. You will not regret it. Thanks Craig! Louise

    About

    I became a hypnotist when I was still having issues with my weight after gastric bypass and the counselors I was referred to did not help me. I now work with individuals that are not able to move forward in their life. I help my clients to understand what and why things from their past are holding them back in life. I know what my clients are going through since my gastric surgery over 15 years ago. I offer a program called "Bariatric Surgery to the Mind". I tell my bariatric clients that the doctor changed your stomach size but no one has helped to change your mindset. My practice isn't just limited to smoking sensation and weight loss but so much more. I am certified in Alchemical Hypnotherapy which means I bring in guides (Higher Power, Inner child, Inner Healer, etc.) to help to heal from childhood issues like neglect, abuse by revisiting and those memories and dealing with them as an adult now.

    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.
