Working with Rose was an amazing experience. We did a virtual hypnosis weekly to assist with my anxiety, focus, and weight loss. It amazed me how deeply I would go into trans ans how level I felt when I awoke. I was pleased with my weight loss results and my focus and drive to keep going. I am currently down 25 lbs! Rose is very attentive and my sessions always in a state of tranquility that I always refer to as zen. I highly recommend Rose's program. It worked wonderfully for me!

Wow! I cannot wait to see Carla for my next session. I keep thinking about the power of the session. I marveled at how swiftly I responded to very the first treatment! I felt an immediate shift in myself, during that initial session. Even better, the benefit is still in full effect, continually. Carla equipped me with new knowledge about neuroscience, too, and that has really empowered me. Now that I know so much more about how the mind really works (not how I thought, or felt, or heard that it worked), I can harness that cognitive power to create new patterns and associations. Fascinating and transformative! One thing I’ll never forget is that Carla said I “may see a sign upon leaving her office” while I was under hypnosis. Sure enough, I did see a very specific sign that was an exact answer to my question! More wild, I saw this sign because I actually mistakenly took a “wrong” turn while trying to find a restaurant where I was meant to meet a friend. Was it really the wrong turn? If I hadn’t taken it, I wouldn’t have seen the sign that was so clearly meant for me. Amazing, how we frame things. I urge you to work with Hemiphere Hypnotherapy. If you are ready to create REAL, significant, lasting advancement, allow yourself this gift. One of the best things I’ve done for myself all year.

Years ago I was diagnosed with a large ovarian cyst (the size of a large egg) that repeatedly burst and caused me great pain over the course of eighteen months. My doctor told me I should have it cauterized. Before committing to surgery, I tried hypnosis with Lenny Cavallaro for a summer, who helped me to visualize my own self-healing. Three months after working with this truly caring healer, my next sonogram with my doctor showed the cyst entirely gone! My sessions were relaxing, and I put my best effort into visualizing my healing, but I never dreamed this hypnosis would work so powerfully. This "Doubting-Thomas" is now a believer in the power of the mind, body and spirit with the help of a gifted guide such as Lenny.

Nancy is an exceptional healer! Trust is at the heart of every relationship and with Nancy you can trust that she will be intuitive and after a few sessions know what would be important to explore. I have had her do Reiki, Hypnosis and Integrated Energy Therapy on me and have always felt my balance return and my energy replenished afterwards. Nancy is authentically connected and I feel she is a genuine healer.

I saw Lance for hypnosis to improve my bodybuilding efforts and help me grow huge and stage-ready like I've always wanted. Before meeting, Lance and I exchanged several emails detailing my experience with both bodybuilding and hypnosis, what my expectations were, and what I wanted to accomplish. At my appointment Lance spent a substantial amount of time getting familiar with how I think, my world view, my imagination, my goals... anything and everything that could help him make the hypnotic process as deep and effective as possible. Lance was able to bring me very, very deep into hypnosis. He helped me eliminate doubts, break down self-imposed limits, experience myself as the huge bodybuilder I would become, and boosted my optimism and dedication. For weeks after our session I was noticing my positive response to the triggers Lance had given me to keep his teaching in full effect. I am extremely satisfied with all the ways Lance helped me. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Hypnosis REALLY works! Finally, at my wits end, and having bitten and picked at my fingernails and cuticles since I can remember (over 40 years), I decided to try hypnosis to try to stop this embarrassing habit. I was so embarrassed to draw any attention to my hands. Though disappointed that the first session resulted in no change that I could sense, after returning to Richard for a second session a week later, I am totally blown away!!! Since then I have had absolutely NO urges to attack my nails or skin around them. I am just amazed, and wish now that I had tried this long before now. One month, and a manicure later, my hands look great and I can finally wear my grandmother's diamond engagement ring! Expect to give it a second chance if it doesn't work the first time. Hypnosis worked for me!

Charles listens very carefully before a session so he can get the best individual results during a session. I have been try to stop smoking for over a year and with one session I have not smoked for a week now. Charles session was very powerful in that any time my mind begins to think of smoking it is immediately filled with all the reasons I wanted to quit. That makes it easy every time to just move on without it.

I don't compare myself to others yet I like to think that I give 100% to my clients, and am fully present and heart-centered, never judgmental. I have a very positive, nurturing energy and like to think that I make people feel comfortable and safe. I encourage follow-up questions...and try to be as accessible as possible to clients who have occasional concerns...who just need a positive voice every once in awhile, outside of the for pay, client-service provider relationship I love connecting with people on a really deep level, and helping them to re-frame their lives. To put a new spin on an old problem. To find their potential. To observe someone walk in crying...and leave smiling. I love helping people to tap into who they really are....

    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.
