Austin Hypnotherapy Solutions
Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist
I am a clinical hypnotherapist certified by the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners (Certification # 108-047) and trained at the Hypnotherapy Academy of America in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The professional certification course at the Hypnotherapy Academy of America is one of the most comprehensive and extensive courses available. I trained with the renowned hypnotherapist and educator, Tim Simmerman. Tim is a former nationally registered paramedic and is one of the few hypnotherapy instructors in the nation to be trained in allopathic medicine. He is the author of “Medical Hypnotherapy: Principals and Methods of Practice” and he served as president of the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners, the world’s largest and most esteemed hypnotherapy certification board. I also had the honor of studying with one of the fathers of modern hypnotherapy — Gil Boyne. Gil pioneered Transforming Therapy™; a methodology which is focused on teaching client’s to use their own internal problem solving capability to achieve lasting results.
My training in hypnotherapy also included the methods of Erickson, Elman and Coué. I have a thorough and comprehensive understanding of hypnotic techniques for medical support in the areas of pain management and erasure, surgery (including dental) preparation, peaceful childbirth, and accelerated healing. I am a fellow with the International Board of Hypnotherapy and I am a certified Blissborn Hypnosis Educator. Other areas of expertise include the use of Body Mind Solutions™, Core Transformation™, Suggestion Therapy and Guided Imagery to assist my clients in improving their health, changing and eliminating habits and achieving personal growth. I am also a certified Master Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP).
I hold a BA in Psychology and a MS in Counseling from the University of Kentucky. I have over 20 years of business management experience which I use every day to help my clients achieve their goals. I am a member of the Westlake Chamber of Commerce and the Central Texas Society of Clinical Hypnosis.
I believe that each of us possesses the inner resources necessary to live a healthy, balanced and happy life. We sometimes need some help to access those resources and and my purpose is to help my clients identify those resources and use them more effectively. It's my purpose and my passion.
My clients will tell you they were surprised at themselves and how deeply relaxed they were able to get. You have to experience it to understand it.
I tell them that each of us has the natural ability to go into trance and access the deeper parts of ourselves. I tell them it is a deeply relaxing experience which can lead to amazing insight and positive change. I also tell them that this is all self hypnosis. I'm not putting them "under" anything; I'm simply guiding them through this process.
