Wendy Lynne changed my perspective on everything! I was very hesitant to see a counselor at first, but my life felt stagnant and stuck, so I eventually started looking online for someone. I was very thorough in my research and very picky, as I wanted someone who I could trust and connect with. I stumbled upon Wendy's website and she seemed very personable in her videos, and I enjoyed looking through all her articles. I could definitely relate to what she had to say, plus I liked her more alternative/holistic approach. I started seeing Wendy in December of 2015 with a list of issues, the biggest ones being my relationship, career, and family. I signed up for 8 sessions and was expecting to talk a lot about my childhood, how I was raised, etc. But I soon realized that Wendy doesn't focus a lot on the past and instead focuses more on current relationships and issues, which is great because I was able to see results quickly! Plus, with my new perspective and understanding, I became less affected by my past traumas. Before Wendy, I was constantly questioning my relationship and was thinking of breaking up. But after my sessions with her, my relationship has transformed into something that I did not think was possible! It is now so easy, comfortable, and harmonious. Plus, my partner and I are getting married next month, which is a big deal for me, as I used to not believe in marriage! Wendy is very in tune with relationship dynamics and how men and women think/act differently. Learning these differences about my partner positively changed the way I interacted with them. She gave me the courage to speak up in my relationship, in a very effective and respectful way. She also gave me practical exercises, worksheets, and a personal hypnosis recording to use when problems arise. I love whipping out my pen and paper to go through her simple, but effective exercises. She has given me the knowledge and confidence to go through life knowing that there is no issue that I cannot work through! And if I cannot figure something out on my own, I can always come by for another helpful session. She is very responsive to my emails and is very accommodating with my schedule. I love how she gives me 2 hours of her undivided attention each session! We are able to cover a lot during that time, as opposed to the usual one hour sessions that other counselors offer. Discovering Wendy has been such a huge blessing, and I've recommended her to all my friends and family.

I have loved working with Herrieta! I have worked with her on three separate issues now. Each time, she has provided thorough talk therapy prior to each hypnosis session. She has a warm nature and is very gifted in the ability to show her client another perspective on their current issue while also validating their experience. Her confidence and laughter are incredibly contagious - I finished each session in a wonderful mood and excited for the changes to come. This is, however, the type of work where “you get out what you out in,” and the results are incredible. Listening to your personalized recording is vital to creating lasting change. I hardly ever write reviews but felt moved to do so based on the results I have achieved. I highly recommend her.

I was pretty skeptical about hypnosis. I'd been smoking since age 16 and really wanted to quit. Allison helped me quit for good. She taught me some things about smoking I didn't know. I thought it would be weird but it was mostly relaxing. I also used the tools she gave me to pass a work test. R.E.

Living Lite Hypnosis Centers excel at what they do. I struggled for years with my weight and through Living Lite I was able to be successful and keep the weight off. Katie Evans relates with her students and truly cares about their outcomes. Katie is a true professional and the customer service she provides is second to none. I would absolutely recommend Katie and Living Lite.

GREAT FOR WEIGHT LOSS AND HEALTHY LIVING My husband and I have tried a number of different diets over the years, and paid for gym memberships that we never used. Nothing ever seemed to work and, worse yet, we became one-another’s biggest enablers to cheat on diets and find excuses to not exercise. Finally we realized the little “band-aid” approach to weight loss that we tried and failed at so many times is simply not the answer…… but, what to do? One day after a lovely lunch at the Cabbage Patch Restaurant in Snohomish I noticed a Hypnosis for Change banner on a building across the street. I called the number and spoke with Linda, who is, by the way, a lovely person with sincere wishes to help people who are struggling with issues of any kind. Linda explained the sub-conscious is 90% of the mind and getting through to the sub-conscious and reprograming our thoughts and desires toward living a healthy lifestyle is key to making a lasting change. After learning Linda is a medically certified hypnotist that has realized a good success rate with her weight loss clients we decided the healthy lifestyle for lasting change approach sounded like exactly what we need. Linda puts our sessions on a CD for us (we are old school) and we listen to it a few more times to reinforce the positive messages.This approach is working for us, and we couldn’t be more pleased. We now find ourselves wanting to eat fresh fruits and vegetables instead of the junk food we used to crave, looking forward to exercising, and actually having fun at the gym. The truly amazing part is I never think about food. I used to think about food all the time, even when I was eating I would think about what to eat later. It’s working for my husband too. When we watch TV he no longer asks me whether we have any ice cream or whether I feel like having popcorn. I am loving living like this, and only wish we’d have done it sooner. Oh, and bonus, I am down ten pounds and losing. My husband doesn’t weigh himself, but says he can tell he has lost weight by the way his clothes fit (and I can see that he has). Major bonus, my blood sugar levels are dropping. We feel better, we look better, and we are having fun! This truly is the best thing we have ever done for ourselves, and the best money we have spent. We did this for ourselves as a Christmas present for one-another and I believe it will be the one gift we will never forget.

This was an incredible experience. Hazel seems to be a natural at this and has the most pleasant relaxing voice to lead through the hypnosis process. It was my first experience with hypnosis. I felt much more in control of my life and over the things I am trying to change after the first session. The second session reinforced these feelings and left me feeling strong and renewed and refreshed. I'm finding myself a much more positive and hopeful person since the very first session. This was one of the best choices I've made in my life for sure!

Having a great fear of heights, I turned to Beyond Hypnosis for help. Tamarah took the time to explain to me how hypnosis works and what I need to do to make it most successful. My hypnosis session was one of the most unique experiences of my life. I would highly recommend Tamarah for life anxieties that hypnosis may help.

If I had one word to describe Laura Rude's professional Medical Hypnosis services it would be exceptional. I honestly believe that she has set the bar very high for her profession. I will always refer people to her for a variety of benefits. You can spend a fortune on "self-help" books, audios, consultations OR you can have a hypnotherapy consultation with Healthwise Hypnosis and resolve issues and create major changes in 1 or 2 short sessions and the results will last a lifetime. The only think she could do better is clone herself.

When I was searching for an officiant, I read a lot of reviews because I really wanted a personalized ceremony. I wanted to find someone organized and professional, yet someone that could also mirror our humor and personalities - I'm so glad to have found Jim! We wanted people to laugh and be entertained at our wedding, yet also have a heartfelt and sentimental ceremony. Jim took the time to get to know us as a couple so he could incorporate stories and make our ceremony special for us. He also gave us examples of readings to choose from and let us customize them to our liking. Jim was a perfect choice! He even went above and beyond by tracking down our marriage license when the court had delayed its delivery. I can’t say enough good things about him and the service he provided. I HIGHLY recommend Jim Kellner!!

Katie, you helped me with more than just my weight – you helped me take back my self confidence and determination to be the person I want to be (and will to be!). You helped me figure out not the “what”, but the “why” behind my eating choices. AND that confidence has spread into my relationships at home and the office. I can’t thank you enough! In my book you are a miracle worker! You are awesome! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

About

My hypnotherapy/counseling work stands out from others in my business because, I've probably been where you are now. I have a lot of life experience, so I understand what you're going through. I take the time needed at each session (1-2 hours) to help you feel better. I charge by the session, not by the hour. If you hire me to officiate at a ceremony, you will know that you will receive more than from others. I'm been performing ceremonies, and teaching others to, since 1996. So I've performed hundreds of weddings, everything from traditional Christian to very Pagan. I believe that it's YOUR day, not mine or anyone else's. I also officiated at memorials, baby blessings, vow renewals, plus other life changing/life phase ceremonies.

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.
