Jo is amazing. Anything you could want to change she can make it happen. She helped me with multiple things that needed to be changed in my life. Lasting changes! I was stressed to the max and my anxiety was overwhelming. After hypnosis with Jo, I have been able to perform better at work, my relationships are better, and I now know how to deal and cope with stress.

Robin is fantastic and I felt very supported as she truly listened. The whole process was very comfortable both physically and emotionally. I deeply appreciate how she formulates the content of the hypnosis, which is very personal to the client. She doesn't make any assumptions as other hypnotherapists might do (and I have seen several). Robin's training is extensive and her experience and attention to detail makes a huge difference. She has a very comforting and pleasant voice (which helps to listen to the recordings that she makes of the session). Robin's compassion is priceless. I highly recommend her! 💜👍🏼

Stephanie helped me quite smoking by hypnosis. She asked me questions and then recorded a session so I could listen to it at anytime. She was very positive and didn't judge. She answered all my questions and explained how everything works. Stephanie is amazing!

Thank you Infinite Changes Hypnosis. I quit smoking cold turkey for three days. Then I had a bad day at work, and on my way home stopped for a pack of cigarettes. That's when I decided to try hypnosis. The process is really easy. Kristin helped to understand that my cravings are at a subconscious level and that eventually my will power would just run down. But with hypnosis, she was able to bypass my conscious mind, access the unconscious programming and reboot my brain to not desire to smoke. She was awesome.

I decided to try hypnosis for weight loss at the recommendation of a friend. I was just so tired of trying and failing all the diets and feeling worse and worse about myself. From the first phone call Dale made me feel comfortable and at ease talking about my problems and fears. His sessions were really enlightening. I thought my weight problem was just about bad food choices but he helped me realize it was really emotional. I lost about 50 lbs and more importantly my stress and anxiety got so much better! I had no idea those things were even connected. Now I feel in control of my health and emotions and I feel good in my body. Dale is so professional and explained how everything worked so I could understand. He was also really kind and never made me feel judged. He was easy to work with and I felt right away that he could really understand and could really help me. I highly recommend Dale to anyone whose dealing with weight issues and stress/anxiety.

    I went to Lara hoping to reinstate my creative writing spark. I hadn't realized I'd get emotional talking about it, but I didn't feel weird crying in front of Lara because she exudes a gentle, accepting presence. I appreciated how she prepared me for the process, explaining hypnosis in terms I could understand, and answering my questions. She used a number of visualization techniques, and I enjoyed seeing where her questions took me in the fields of my mind. I was delighted by how surprised I was during the process of discovery and creation. I found I knew more about my writing issue than I was consciously aware of, and at the end of the session, I felt hopeful. It's been a couple of months since that session, and I have written more in that time than I have in the past two years combined. "Grateful" doesn't cover it!

    I was looking forward to seeing you today to tell you in person what a thrill this week has been for me. Now finishing up my eighth day of being 'in control' and find it amazing. I don't know why this never happened to me before. We talked mostly about compulsive eating, but the new 'in control' me has solved some other problems of long standing. I am swilling water like a nut to the exclusion (almost) of all other drinks, I've been exposed to temptation (twice in restaurants) and have no problem whatsoever deciding how much I want to eat and stopping when that was done. Also doing my exercises because I want to and enjoying it rather than just grinding through, etc. Looking forward with delight to the next session.

      A+. Experience cannot be distilled into words.


      Hypnosis is a state of mind. A way of thinking and perceiving the world. It's what you DO in that state that makes the difference. There is no one "suggestion" that will work universally for every client. The best hypnotherapists have a lot of tools in their toolbox. Not only do they know what to do, they know when, and the best of the best also knows WHY. It's knowing what makes you tick that makes the difference between a hypnotic technician from a hypnotic mind artist! But the real differentiator is why we do what we do. Some people do it as a way to make money. Others do it because they like to help people. I do it because it is my calling, my destiny, my joy and passion. Ask me some time about the event that started it all for me.

      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.
