Awesome experience!!! Looking forward to more sessions to decrease my anxiety and remove unnecessary barriers to achieve my hopes and dreams!!!
Hi there- I have been taking Michael's Acting Class for the past 2 months and am learning so much. I had never heard of using hypnosis as a way to get to specific emotions. In our last class before performing our scenes, Michael guided us through a meditation and hypnosis. This was the first time I had ever done this before and surprisingly it worked! I couldn't even believe it myself as I don't know much about hypnosis period, let alone how to incorporate it into my acting performances. The actor's life is a journey. I highly recommend Michael to help you with acting or anything else that may help you with your fears, health, phobias or any of the other listed areas he specializes in. He has a genuine compassion for helping people improve their lives and feel better. Now what can be better than that?
Michael has an incredible way of directing actors...And it Works! He applies Hypnosis in scenes. Through Michael's system, I am a better actor. Using hypnosis I remember my lines. Re-create the environment of the scene. And most importantly, I really connect to my character. I highly recommend Michael Givens!

About me

Michael has been helping actors create memorable performances globally for over 40 years. From his on-set use of hypnosis with actors, Michael has become known as “The Hypnotist to the Stars.” Michael developed an exclusive technique to help actors in their work and he also uses his skills to help relieve people of stress, heartache, trauma, grief, anxiety/depression, addiction, smoking cessation, and many more life-stealing issues. He now makes his practice available to the public through Atlanta Hypnosis.

Michael began a life-long study of hypnosis at a young age and discovered the connection between acting and hypnosis while attending Brooks Institute, Santa Barbara, Ca. in 1978. Michael’s hypnotherapy certifications come from two separate schools; International Association of Counselors and Therapists, Laceyville, Pa. (IACT) and Hypnosis Motivation Institute, Los Angeles, Ca. (HMI).

Wow--the 30 days of therapy was almost effortless. My goal was to cut cords with my current love and open the possibility of rebirth to our relationship of 2.5 years as well as address the cords associated with my 1st and only marriage which was a 19-year relationship. My results have been those of relief, freedom and lightspeed progress toward my target which for me is mental, emotions, spiritual, physical and financial ascension. I looked forward to doing my homework every day, and in my case, that was the evening when I lay down to go to sleep. I am still finding several months after the initial session and daily/nightly listening of the recording I still go back to the recording--especially when laying down for bed. I wake up deeply rested. Looking forward to listening and doing the subconscious work when I lay my head down this evening!
While making a movie with Michael Givens, I was suffering from a block. We really did not have much time as we were just about to shoot. I had heard about Michael’s work with hypnosis for actors and ask him if he could help me. We went to a quiet room, he spoke words that totally relaxed me. Then gave me a series of hypnotic images that put me right on track. What an amazing gift. I hope to go deeper into his techniques sometime soon.
I had been biting my nails since I was a child. It was embarrassing, but I had tried to stop many times, with no luck. One hour with Michael and I’ve been bite-free for over two years now. Cheers!

Michael is that special sort of being that seems to be able to hear a word not spoken, a note not played, a cry not cried. I went to him to tackle my smoking addiction and discovered what was truly holding me back. It was much more than smoking. He led me to a place where I could see the monsters that had been tearing at me for years. His manner allowed me to relive some situations that were affecting my life poorly. I began to see things differently. My life changed for the better. It was a wonderful experience.
I was the lead on a movie that Michael was directing. One day I had a very emotional scene to play and was having problems finding my core. I asked Michael if he could do his “thing” for me. He asked me a few things about influential people in my life. Then, he set up the shot, hid in the middle of the set behind some furniture and literally hypnotized me during and through the scene. We did it in one shot. It was a beautiful and moving scene, that I’ll never forget.
I am an actor who has seen my career blossom due in large part to the hypnotic techniques used by Michael Givens. I could speak for days about the advantages of working with him in any artistic or business endeavor, I’ve done it for years. But one evening, I suddenly suffered a heart attack. I was rushed to the hospital and was quickly scheduled for a triple by-pass. I called Michael and he came right to the hospital. He asked me and the staff a lot of questions, then he sat with me and talked me into a much needed peaceful state of relaxation. He calmed my nerves and made me ready for what was to come. I was then taken into surgery. Michael had recorded the hypnosis session and left instructions for me to listen to it every day after the procedure. When I awoke after surgery, I had no pain. That day I listened to the recording three times. I listened every day. I remained calm and just as Michael said, I healed fast. My surgeon was astonished at my recovery and he told me that I was healing faster than any patient he had seen in his whole career. I attribute this to the great work of the medical team and Michael’s care and understanding of the problem. A few years later, I found myself on the surgeon’s table again for a gall bladder issue. I used Michael’s recording again and enjoyed similar results. In both cases, I was back to work and feeling great in no time. I can honestly say, Michael’s work is not just a game-changer, but a life-saver.
