I’m a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist in Scotts Valley, California, up in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains. I’ve been fortunate enough to do something that I love, sharing the benefit of my hypnotic technique and knowledge to help others lead healthier and happier lives. I’ve helped people find their own answers to weight loss, quitting smoking, getting more confidence, relieving stress, and getting a good night’s sleep. But, before I was a hypnotherapist…
I can remember the stage hypnotist back in high school hypnotizing my fellow students to believe that they were famous movie stars, racing in a fast car, and the almost obligatory “you are a chicken!” skit. But his finale was what impressed me the most: The Human Bridge. Taking one of our athletic, but just 16 years old, girls and after hypnotizing her to be “stiff as a board”, he stretched her across two chairs with her middle body and hips completely unsupported. He then proceeded to step up onto her like a step stool, without a quiver or twitch coming from his hypnotized subject. My jaw hit the floor…
The power of the subconscious mind over the body, and the use of hypnosis as a quick and efficient tool to reach that subconscious mind, was very clearly illustrated to me that day 30 years ago. As I’ve used hypnosis on my clients and seen it’s therapeutic benefits first hand, the Human Bridge, while quite impressive, is just a “parlor trick” in comparison to what is actually possible. Changing lifelong negative habits into powerful positive ones, resolving old emotional traumas in a fraction of the time of traditional psychiatric methods, inducing new patterns of thought for peak mental and physical performance, and speeding healing in the body; these are just a few of the many benefits that hypnotherapy can provide.
I’d like to be your intuitive and hypnotically skilled ally on your quest to being a better YOU!
