What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a state of relaxation where the subconscious mind is very receptive to positive thoughts and suggestions. Using hypnosis you can modify your behavior to benefit you by replacing old beliefs or behaviors that you no longer need or want with the new ones you desire. Everyone naturally enters hypnosis several times every day - while watching a movie or TV, when reading an enthralling book, when overwhelmed by a new romance, or while driving (have you ever driven for a few miles without remembering how you got there?).

Hypnosis allows you to tap into your subconscious mind, which is the strongest part of the mind, about 88% of your total mind power. Bypassing the critical factor of the conscious mind and gaining access to the subconscious mind allows us to make transformations in behavior patterns that you can’t do consciously. All you have to do is let go and allow the subconscious mind take control and realize the power that you have within. You have everything you need to change inside of you.



Why choose hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is quick and effective in resolving personal issues and improving focus and performance at work or play. With hypnosis, you can effectively replace limiting behaviors with thoughts and actions that promote growth and success. Hypnotherapy helps you focus, direct, and maximize your own inner power. It’s an effective and relaxing tool for change. Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy (or Peak Performance Mind Coaching) can be used for many, many issues and goals. See a list of 146 ways it can be used here.

Can everyone be hypnotized?

Everyone has the ability to be hypnotized, as long as they want to be and allow it to happen.

What is hypnosis like?

Hypnosis is a natural state of physical and mental relaxation that is refreshing and revitalizing. In hypnosis you are not asleep people generally report an experience of intense concentration and awareness. You will hear everything I say and you will not do or say anything that you wouldn’t normally do or say; I can’t make you do or say anything you don’t want to.

Hypnosis Can Help You!

In a study conducted by American Health Magazine, the effectiveness of psychoanalysis, behavioral therapy, and hypnosis was compared. It was found that:

  • Hypnotherapy: 93% recovery rate after only 6 sessions
  • Behavioral therapy: 72% recovery rate after 22 sessions
  • Psychoanalysis: 38% recovery rate after 600 sessions

In 1955, the British Medical Association issued a report stating that it approved of the use of hypnosis as a valuable medical tool.  It was also suggested that all physicians and medical students receive fundamental training in its usage. In 1962 the American Psychiatric Association recognized that hypnosis was a viable modality in the realm of psychology.

Some areas of specialty:


Weight Loss

You’ve tried dieting, diet pills, and exercising, and yet, the goal of losing weight seems to be just out of reach. This is because willpower is an insufficient tool for weight loss. It is located in the conscious part of our mind, but because our habits and behaviors are located in our subconscious mind, this is the part of our mind that we must access to create real, long-lasting changes. With my 12 week weight loss programme you will access your subconscious and discover new ways to deal with old habits, beliefs, and coping mechanisms, to lead you to a new and healthier you from within.

Smoking Cessation

When you choose to become smoke free hypnosis can make it much easier and quicker, most people stop smoking in 1-2 sessions. If you’ve tried before but failed to stop smoking there’s a part of you doesn’t like the thought of stopping, it gets something important from smoking. In hypnosis, you let that part of you figure out a better way to get what it needs. Then you won’t even want to breathe poison into your lungs!      


Life can feel stressful with all the things going on - work, family, friends, commitments. Hypnosis can help you to relax and refocus on what is important to you so you can release anxiety and enjoy your life and the things that you do. Hypnosis can help form new ways of dealing with things that used to make you feel stressed.                         


Everyone could use some more confidence in their life, even people who seem to have a lot of it! Giving yourself that extra boost in any area of your life, be it career, relationship, money, or spirituality, can help you to fulfill your dreams and live the life you love. By being more confident and secure in who you are, you can let the light that is you shine more brightly. I use hypnosis to deal with negative self-talk, to build confidence, and to lower anxiety.

Past Life Regression

Have you ever felt that you have lived in a time before this time? Do you have an affinity with somewhere you have never been? Do you feel a connection to a certain period in history? Maybe you have lived in that time and place before, in a past life. Past Life Regression Therapy can help you to release pain, insecurities, health issues, relationship issues, and many more things that may not originate in this lifetime. If there is no medical reason for your issue PLR could be the key to understanding and releasing it. 


Awaken your natural creativity through hypnosis! Do you feel blocked creatively? You know what you are looking for is inside you, but you are having trouble releasing it to the world. Using hypnosis we can help to release those blocks and to allow your creativity to flow like never before. The signals and messages that spark creative thinking are already within you, it is just a matter of relaxing the mind to the point that they are unleashed. There are times when an imaginative and creative solution to an everyday problem is called for. Hypnosis can accomplish this type of creative thinking by removing stress factors that inhibit rational and unique solutions to problems or challenges. It also works to remove the negative thoughts we may have about our abilities.

Change Habits

Habits are learned behaviors which can be unlearned. Using hypnosis we can supercharge your desire to change and ramp up your motivation, determination, and focus. Working as a team, like a coach and an athlete, I use hypnosis to help you reach your goals and change your habits to improve your life. Maybe you want to quit smoking, lose weight or stop procrastinating, using hypnosis we can help you change that bad habit and form the new habits that will help you reach your target.
