"I have attended two hypnotherapy sessions with Andrew. Although I was unsure about the process before I started I am extremely glad that I did. He has already helped me with both pain management and psychological issues. During the whole process he was very open and informative answering any questions and even allowed my wife and best friend to view the therapy session, after asking me if I was ok with it. I had plantar fasciitis in both feet for over two years. Due to the nature of my work I would just keep re aggravating the injury and it would never be allowed to heal. I tried many remedies including multiple steroid injections with my doctor to no avail. I had no quality of life as the pain was a 7 or 8 out of 10 every day from the time I woke up to the time I went to sleep. After the first hypnosis session, my pain was gone. Within two days of receiving hypnotherapy I had aggravated my feet with physical activity, and I was only at a 1 or 2 on the pain scale, and it went back down once I stopped aggravating them. I was so thrilled with the results that on the second visit we moved straight into issues stemming from long term psychological abuse at the hands of my father and ex-wife. My wife and my closest friends have commented already noticing the profound difference. I would recommend anyone to let Andrew help you in the same way that he helped me." Ryan

I am an ex smoker. I had smoked cigarettes for almost 40 years. I had tried to quit many times and tried will power, only to go back after a few days or weeks. I thought I could never be free from smoking. I became a great grandmother and was determined to try again, only this time I thought I would try something I had heard about before. Hypnosis has helped some people be successful at quitting the habit. I was not sure if it would work for me because I am a very strong willed person who I felt was not open to being "under hypnosis" I decided to look for someone in my community to give it a try anyway, because I was so wanting to be free of the nasty habit and become healthy and happy. I called and made an appointment with Michelle DeStefano C.H. in Wailea, Maui. I found her by doing a web search for someone close to me. I had never heard of her before. Going in, I was nervous, the only time I had ever seen hypnosis was in a show where they made volunteers from the audience do strange behaviors. I was afraid of being hypnotized and sure it wasn't going to work on me. Michelle greeted me and I found a very soft spoken and professional therapist. She asked me questions and had me relax in a very comfortable chair. As she talked I became very relaxed and had some visualizations of myself being healthy and loving life not being a smoker. Her methods were amazing. I was able to breathe and go deeper into a relaxed state. It was very much like a guided meditation.I did not smoke that day. Leaving there I was relaxed energized, and felt really good about the experience. I felt empowered and that I was doing something positive and healthy for myself and the planet.I was given a recording of Michele's soft voice reaffirming the visuals I had seen and helped me get into that deep relaxation state again. As the days went on I felt less and less urges to smoke. I listened to my recording a few times. I was amazed that I could be successful after so many years of trying. It has been one year this month since I quit that nasty disgusting habit. I am so grateful for Michelle's help and that I stood up for myself! I showed up for myself! I am smoke free!!!

So far I've had one hypnosis session with Julian to help me with focus during my last semester in college. I had never experienced hypnosis before and he took the time to explain the entire process and answer all of my questions so I felt comfortable. Julian is extremely knowledgeable in this line of work and is very attentive to how you feel and what you want to focus on. The session itself was extremely relaxing (his voice has that effect) and with his guidance I was able to visualize my ideal state (in the session) to execute it in real life. Initially I wasn't sure it would work, but I have to say, I felt a difference immediately! The proof for me was seen later in that same week when I submitted a term paper EARLIER than the due date which is hard for a habitual procrastinator like I used to be. Since then, I have consulted him for guidance and support as a life/business coach. His perspective and advice has been invaluable thus far. I'm making progress much faster than I was on my own and he holds me accountable to my goals through unending support and encouragement. I cannot thank him enough!

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.
