Ericksonian Hypnotherapy & NLP

Follow your bliss and doors will open where there were no doors before.
– Joseph Campbell

You Don’t Have to Live with Blocks, Habits and Pressures that Hold you Back

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Ericksonian Hypnotherapy are powerful tools I use with clients to achieve immediate relief from stresses that interfere with performance (as when giving a speech, taking an exam or completing an important job interview) or to help them discover issues that have been preventing them from moving forward with their lives.



Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a mouthful. In essence, it addresses the relationship between behavioral patterns and patterns of thought. It educates clients in self-awareness and effective communication, and uses models and techniques that can quickly and effectively change a person’s limiting thinking and behaviors.

Ericksonian Hypnotherapy is used in conjunction with NLP or by itself, depending upon a client’s needs and circumstances.

Training with the Best

I hold a Master Practitioner’s Certification in Neuro-Linguistic Programming from NLP University where I studied with Robert Dilts, Judith DeLozier and Suzi Smith. I have completed over 455 hours of Ericksonian hypnosis training with Stephen Gilligan, Sidney Rosen, Bill O’Hanlon, Jane Parsons and others. I am a Certified Hypnotherapist through IACT (International Association of Counselors & Therapists).

I would love to discuss how these powerful tools can help you.

Hypnotherapy is Safe and Effective

Confusion about hypnotherapy is primarily caused by the use of “hypnosis” in stage shows, which gives the impression of people giving up total control to the hypnotist. In fact, no individual will do anything under hypnosis that they don’t want to do.

s-ericksonian1A hypnotherapist has no power over others, but rather guides a client into a deep meditation. This is not unlike trance states we all experience from time to time (such as becoming so involved in a TV show that we don’t hear someone calling us, or getting involved in conversation with a passenger while driving a car and forgetting that we’re driving).

Deep hypnosis is not necessary for all situations. Any depth of hypnosis can bring excellent results if the person under hypnosis is 100% focused on the desired changes.

Hypnosis itself does not cure illnesses or solve problems. It is a tool used to develop a sense of well being, so that a client can make life-improving changes.

So, I need to think “What are my options? What are the solutions?” as opposed to staying in that framework of catastrophe….
