7/11/2013 Dear Tony: Before coming to see you, I had been eating as a coping mechanism and was struggling to lose weight. I decided to try hypnotherapy to teach me to cope with the stresses in my life. I have used the self-hypnosis techniques you taught me and have been successful in quieting my mind. It is very effective in achieving deep levels of relaxation and I thoroughly recommend hypnotherapy to anyone who feels that they would benefit from increased calm in their life. When I get stressed, I meditate or take a walk. I walk almost every day. After only 3 sessions, I sleep better and I have started to lose weight. My son has reacted to his calmer mother by improving his cooperation and behavior. Again, thank you so much for your help, not only coping with the stress in my life, but reducing it!

Working with Wendy Merron was an excellent experience. She is an engaging speaker who understands her work very well. She uses language all can understand and identify with, and is very warm and friendly. I would recommend her expertise without reservation to all who are seeking hypnosis and training at the Center of Success.

    I had a wonderful experience with Janet and the virtual gastric band hypnosis. I have released ten pounds so far and have had a life changing experience. Habits that I never thought I could change have changed, and it is easy. I am so grateful for this experience and it has changed my life forever.

      I had been chewing my nails since about 1955. I tried everything over the years with no success. Just one visit to Joe Nunan and I haven't touched them since. That visit was about 3 months ago. I now have a beautiful set of nails thanks to Joe. I would recommend him to ANYONE who has suffered from nail biting and simply cannot stop doing it. It's not just that I don't chew my nails, I haven't had the slightest urge or thought to do so since my single session with Joe. Thanks Joe....

      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.
