About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I have been successfully helping people overcome their hurts, habits and hangups for many years using hypnosis. It really does work easily and quickly to resolve many issues that keep people from getting the most out of life. Whether it's pain management, PTSD, stress, anxiety or any number of 200 other things, hypnosis may be the key to unlocking your ability to create a life you love living. I have also been helping couples create amazing relationships as a Couples Communication Coach for over 30 years helping with premarital and marital and committed couples both traditional and non traditional. Relationships come down to communication, commitments and agreements. Leaning how to speak your authentic truth, eliminating blame, staying out of the triangle dance and understanding how personality changes in relationship are just a few things that we address. I have helped couples go from the brink of separation to a renewed sense if Love, Intimacy, Respect and Commitment to live happily together.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I truly enjoy the success people achieve in all aspects of their lives as a result of changing old programmed behavior and negative thoughts. Whether we use cognitive coaching and/or hypnotherapy getting to the root of why we respond to the world we create and reframe our responses helps to make a life you truly love living for yourself and/or with a partner.

    Hypnotherapy at its best
    I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with Ron and I have had 2 sessions so far. He is very easy to talk to and I opened up right away. After two sessions I have already seen progress in myself. I can't wait to see what my next sessions will unlock. I'm feeling more confident and not as anxious, though it's hard to be anxious on his beautiful acre that his business resides as it definitely calms you as you walk the outdoor path to the office.

    Hello, I took my 8 year old daughter in to see Ron to help her overcome a fear of choking when she swallowed food. She had a scary experience with a tortilla chip one day and wouldn't eat for a week! After being told by her doctor that she could swallow fine, I was desperate for someone to help me figure out how to stop her from being scared to swallow. I have to admit; I was a big skeptic when it came to hypnosis, but remember I was desperate!! The experience with Ron was wonderful. She was relaxed and calm the whole time. When the session ended she still didn't want to eat but Ron reassured me that it may take 24 to 48 hours to break her habit of being scared. Well, the next day all of a sudden she asked me if she could have a cookie. She ate the cookie while watching her favorite cartoon and has been eating more and more normally all day! I recommend Ron 100 percent. He is a total professional and I plan on going back in a week or so for help with things I'd like to work on myself. 100 percent happy and pleased!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ron was very welcoming, professional, and warm. He was helpful during the two sessions we had, and went beyond expected in creating a personalized recording for me to listen to after we were done with our sessions. I had a great experience with Ron!

    I really appreciate what Ron has done for me in helping me get on track with my relationship and how to learn that straight communication coming from a place unbaised love is the best way of speaking in troubled times with your significant other regardless of the outcome. I highly recommend Ron with any troubled couples or even curious couples just wanting a more open way to communicate with each other.

    Thank You. Helping people find purpose and create loving conscious relationships brings warmth to my heart.

    I love my Skype hypnotherapy sessions with Ron Lake! As a hypnotherapist (instead of a hypnotist) he's a lot more qualified to address a wider variety of issues faster and more effectively. My work with him has resolved issues I've tried to fix with other therapists for literally decades! Skype sessions are a huge bonus! I can have my sessions anywhere I'm traveling to or in the convenience of my home. I really appreciate not having to drive after a Skype session vs an in office session, as hypnotherapy leaves me so wonderfully relaxed. Ron has been available for me for evening and weekend appointments too, which is so helpful with my busy work schedule. I highly recommend Ron to you for hypnotherapy.

    Ron has gone above and beyond my original intentions! The journey to change my life and empower my soul has been greatly accelerated by his coaching and teachings. I always look forward to our next meeting. I highly recommend him!

    I love Ron!!! He is the best hypnotherapist I have ever worked with and produces the fastest and most amazing results! I know because he helped me before, during and after my cancer surgery and treatments and I am now feeling wonderful! The doctors are amazed at how well I have recovered, and I credit a huge part of it to Ron's incredible healing abilities with hypnosis. I recommend him to all my friends whenever they could benefit from hypnotherapy of any kind. He has also done amazing work for my husband as well! Thank you Ron!


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Since I am also a Life Coach, The first session usually lasts about a hour and a half. We review what the client is experiencing, identify the patterns and the original time the pattern was imprinted. then I go over the variety of strategies we have available and how they work. We pick which strategy best suits the client and will bring the quickest results with ease. Very important: I am judgment free.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a PhD in Philosophy of Religion, I am a Certified Transformational Life Coach from REI, and Certified Communication and Couples Coach from the Hendricks Institute, I spent 2 years with the Hypnosis Motivation Institute where I completed my diploma requirements and 200 hrs. of clinical. Since graduation I continue my education at seminars, conferences and group forums. I have acquired Special Certification in over a dozen specific treatments like PTSD, Sports Performance, Hypno-Birthing, Pain Management and several others. I have been an ordained minister with ULC since 2009 and have performed over 50 weddings in Hawaii, California, Arizona and Texas. I also do marital and Pre-marital Coaching to help couples through the rough times and prepare new couples early to communicate authentically.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I was a first responder (police officer) for a large city in Arizona. After several direct and indirect shootings I developed PTSD. I went through all the normal avenues to alleviate the problem with negative results. I lost my family, I gave up my job and generally felt lost in my life. I did not know which way to turn, who to go to and fell into a deep depression. The medicine prescribed to me create a falls sense of calm but I could not get better. A friend suggested I try Hypnosis. I researched and discovered hypnosis was approved by the AMA back in 1958 and has been used successfully for many things over the years. I found a Certified Hypnotherapist and saw them for three visits. My PTSD was gone. . I was so excited, that I wanted to learn how to do this and so much more for other people. The power of the subconscious mind along with learning new cognitive behaviors made amazing changes in my life and I decided to help make those same amazing changes so that they too could live a life they love to live. In that career though, I saw a lot of good people on the worst day of thier lives and I so desperately wanted to help them, so I began getting certified in a variety of couples coaching techniques. What I learned and have been sharing for 30 years has helped hundreds of cuoples commincate better, rebuild trust, create a new sense of intimacy and passion.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I do a lot of work with Wounded Worriers, Athletes, Actors, Doctors and just everyday folks. I have a strong appreciation for PTSD and Pain Management, and I get a lot of requests for Confidence, Self Esteem, Motivation, Phobias, and Fear, Anxiety/Stress, Weight loss, Smoking, Auto Immune Disorders and so much more. I have also worked with dozens of clients in creating better relationships using Conscious Communication skills to create lasting loving commitments that bring joy to their lives. As a Transformational Life Coach, I have the ability to help those reaching for their loftiest goals, attain them with clarity and ease.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
The most recent is a friend turned client called me to help her stop nail biting. I have know her for over 15 years and knew that she bit her nails down to the skin. She was always embarrassed about it and hid her hands all the time. She had been doing it since she was 7 and was now in her early 50's. Long story short. I worked with her for three sessions....then one day about a month after her last session, she surprised me with a post to my Facebook page showing her newly painted fingernails! She expressed joy when she said she had never gotten to go to a salon before in her life to have her nails done. Sherman was extremely happy and wanted everyone to look at her hands now. Also, I love seeing couples who come to me after "talk therapy" thinking that all hope is lost only to learn skills that open communication, create mutual respect and ignite a new passion in their relationships.
