Josh used integrated hypnosis on me to quit smoking in April of 2017. I've never looked back. I had hoped hypnosis would make quitting easier but I didn't realize just how easy it would be. I had quit smoking before but this was the last time. I never have the urge to smoke. It's like Josh said during one of three sessions "It will be like you were never a smoker."

Roberts Fernandez is a highly qualified, competent instructor with a skillful way of breaking down complex methods of Regression Hypnosis into manageable steps with a smooth comfortable flow. I consider myself to be a continual learner and I’ve studied under numerous teachers and I appreciate Roberta’s lack of arrogance, broad- mindedness and support of other Certified Hypnotist. Her bibliography of resources and books are fabulous, she encourages us to read and practice. Ultimately, I feel like she wants her students to succeed, and it shows.

Jay struck me as personable and very knowledgeable in his field of hypnosis. Should I find a way to come up with the money, I am definitely going back to give him the opportunity to treat me for tinnitus.

Amye is an all around great person. She is warm, and friendly, her caring shines through. Amye is eclectic and creative. Her sessions can be in the moment if you need them to be or very conventional if you are looking for a standard approach. I would recommend her to anyone. Not only is she a gem of a person she has very reasonable rates for Hypnosis sessions. Take it from me, you just can't lose with Amye Scharlau.


I have over 11 years of experience working with individuals in several different areas of success! I have had numerous clients express to me their grattitude for how easily their goals were accomplished through my programs. I fully believe that if a person does not want to make a change, then nothing that anye else says or does will make a difference. However, when people do want to make a change, through hypnosis, that change will occur easily and seeming effortlessly. I attribute my successful programs to my clients who truly wanted to make positive changes in their lives! And, I love what i do, helping people to help themselves to accomplish their goals! Helping people. Giving people back control over their own lives and actions that they once did not feel that they had. Saving peoples lives through stopping smoking and gaining control over their eating/sleeping/reaction habits. Allowing people to live to their fullest potential by releasing their limitations. Giving people the tools to overcome life's challenges!


We are the only ones who included a exclusive style combining , Hypnosis ,Massage Therapy and Essential oils. When we see the change in our clients from the time they arrive to the time they leave is ......It's absolutly breath taking .

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.
