My experience with Tamara and the St. Petersburg Hypnosis Center was exceptionally positive. She explains everything and I felt very safe and comfortable. She really listens and was able to find underlying issues and help me through them. She has a true gift of being able to help people and I would recommend her!

I met Beth for a consultation and she seemed to understand what my needs are. Today I had my first session. I feel positive that she will be able to help me, but there are still two more sessions and lots of practice for me at home.

I went to Beautiful Mind to have a session that could possibly help me better focus while studying for a big exam that was coming up. Up to this point I was really having trouble focusing on my studies and my test date was coming up quickly. I feel the mission was more than accomplished as I was not only able to focus better while studying but all my test anxiety was also eliminated. I passed my exam on the first try. I highly recommend Susan at Beautiful Mind as she has a very warm and sensitive way. I had one other session prior to this one as well. This hypnosis was all new to me. I didn't know much about it but had heard wonderful things about Susan Iocono and thought I'd give her a try. If there's anything in your life you'd like to improve,change or work out then this may be a great solution.

I did a session with Sherri and it was the best decision I could have ever made. I have done traditional therapy sessions with psychologists and psychiatrist over the years, and have never gotten to the root of my problems. Over the course of a few sessions, Sherri was able to help me get to the root of all that's holding me back. She was like a flashlight in the darkness, showing me the way. I would highly recommend her. She is truly a gifted person and I'm deeply indebted to her.

I've been suffering from IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) for years and had tried just about every remedy out there, and have seen many doctors with no success. I was feeling as if the rest of my life was going to be lived out dealing with IBS and for those who do deal with it on a daily basis know first hand how it can make your life a living hell. I needed real help, and I needed it now. I was referred by a dear friend of mine who also suffered from IBS and with the help her doctor, Dr. David Sewell, she was able to control it and is living a better life today due to his successful hypnosis treatments. Even though I may have spoken to dozens of doctors over the years, its never easy sitting down with someone and going through it all over again. I was nervous before seeing Dr. David Swell, but once we sat down for the first time all my fears just lifted away. It was so clear that he truly cares about his patients, even the ones who walk through his door for the first time. He sat with me and explained the neuroscience behind hypnosis as well as taking the time to teach me how to correctly enter the trance state so I could continue to control my IBS, and no longer allow it to control how I live my life. Today I feel like a brand new woman, and its all because of his dedication, passion as well as his knowledge. Thank you for giving me back my life Dr. Sewell.

I have known John for many years, and it has been my very great pleasure to be working with John as my life coach. He has continued to guide and inspire me with such a profound level of knowledge and understanding in regards to setting goals and acheiving them on every level!! Working with my needs in such a positive, encouraging and insightful manner, I was able to disclose and confide in John, which allowed me to identify and remove all obstacles in my path, building and working with my abilities and strengths giving me a sense of purpose and self confidence, and most importantly a self belief, that I have never experienced before. John's level of continuous correspondence and attention to detail is impeccable and secound to none. As I live on the other side of the world to John (in Australia) he gave me the ability to reaffirm my needs, in a time frame which I felt was paramount to my personal growth. By working with John I now have a more rich and rewarding life than I ever would have thought possible. I know and feel that I do have a extreamly successful and rewarding life ahead.

Stop smoking in one hour -- guaranteed! Stop smoking through our one-hour hypnosis and NLP with a lifetime guarantee and a scientifically proven success rate of 96.3%. Hypnosis can also help with alcohol and drug abuse cessation and weight loss.


most other hypnotists haven't yet intergrated psychology into their sessions. It takes more than just direct or indirect suggestions while in the trance to help the really tuff clients. I have helped people who have spent years in therapy with psychologists and psychiatrists and gotten real results in just 3 sessions. That's what puts me in the top 1%.

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.
