After struggling with my weight and being on a plateau for months, I lost 3.3 lbs. in 2 weeks after my first session. Besides the hypnosis, we talk about healthy eating habits, which I have easily followed. I don't crave snacks all the time, and I'm satisfied with one piece of pizza. I don't feel like eating more just because it's there.

I am enormously grateful for the help that Carol has provided. She has worked with me one-on-one and in a group setting for weight loss. She uses a combination of EFT, NLP, and hypnosis. I have lost a lot of weight so far. I don’t know the precise number, probably 60 pounds or more in 4 months, but I don’t know for sure because the scale no longer holds a grip over me like it used to. More importantly, I no longer think about or crave the junk food that used to occupy my mind and seemed impossible to shake. What Carol helped me discover was that what was really weighing me down (pun intended) was to let go of the anger and emotional issues that caused my angst. Most of my thoughts and behavior were about struggling to eat right and exercise, but those things don’t have to be a struggle. With her help, I got to the root my issues and used EFT to shift my focus, and the weight started dropping off because I didn’t have the constant mental struggle or anxiety anymore. Carol has made a meaningful and lasting impact on my life. Thank you.

Cliff performed a past life regression for me. The experience was really good. Cliff was able to explain the process of hypnosis to me so that I was comfortable and had a good experience. I would highly recommend him to anyone that would like to begin their journey of past life exploration and the concept of reincarnation.

Met with Charles for hypnosis because I was in need of a tune-up. I had been fairly lazy, not working on my own projects, and just generally not very productive. He asked me a lot of questions, enough to cut through my BS and get to the core of what was inhibiting my progress. He cut right to the core, and from there he helped me tap into my own motivation. I highly recommend a session with Charles. In the weeks that followed, I started meditating again, began reading books, stopped watching TV and the news, and also did more trades on my etrade account in a month than I had in a year. Felt like he took what was already within and refocused/shifted it so it was more of my full intention. Very grateful.

I provide the release of negative energies replaced during the hypnosis, then positive ones to take their place all in one visit. I enjoy watching the clients' face when they open their eyes and tell me how great they feel.

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.
