She and I worked through some past hurts and events that kept resurfacing in my relationships. I felt safe, understood, and she guided me to QUICKLY work through those events and gave me new tools to move forward. I am forever grateful.
I had an extremely powerful and moving session with Ms. Shank. With her guidance I was able to connect deeply with important feelings that I was not aware of. Her intuitive understanding of my situation made the experience safe and very meaningful. I have recommended her to several of my close friends.

About me

Hi, my name is Sherris.

What is the ray of hope that you need in your life right now? How many places have you searched for it?

If you are like many of my clients, you’re trying to resolve a problem, release a harmful feeling, or reach an important goal, and your efforts have been unsuccessful. You’ve tried everything you can think of, and you’re frustrated because nothing you do quite seems to work.

The alternative to your exhausting struggle is Clinical Hypnotherapy, a gentle, safe and effective process of deep inner transformation.

The great gift that hypnotherapy gives all of us is the ability to collaborate directly with the subconscious mind.

Why does that matter? Well, most of what keeps people stuck is rooted in old memories, beliefs or fears stored in the subconscious mind. Why not go to the source to create the change you want?

As the great Carl Jung famously said, “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”

For real, sustainable life change there is no faster, more direct method than collaborating with your subconscious mind through hypnotherapy.

Not only can you make the unconscious conscious, you can heal past wounds and create a new path forward that reflects your current life’s desires.

I have always loved the process of personal transformation, and I am constantly amazed by the profound changes that people achieve with this life-altering process.

It would be my honor to guide you on your journey through hypnotherapy. Miracles happen. I’ve seen them!

My Philosophy of Care

Recuperating after three life-threatening events I stumbled on an article on hypnosis in Psychology Today. Something inside me lit up. Here was something that probably would have helped me during my long stays in the hospital! I continued to read and research, becoming more and more interested and excited about everything I learned. The schooling to become a hypnotherapist was often grueling but so worth it! I love my job! It is such a blessing to be able to help people with this gentle and effective process.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

The most common question I am asked is, “What happens in a hypnotherapy appointment?”
My appointments are 1.5 hours long and are divided into two parts, mindful coaching and hypnosis.
Mindful coaching takes between 30 and 45 minutes. It is a process where you and I sit together in the spirit of enquiry without judgment. We discuss your difficulties and your successes and allow ourselves to be open to whatever might come up for you in that moment.
Through questions and answers, we fine-tune our awareness of exactly what you are experiencing including thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and current perceptions. Gradually we discover the single most productive focus for hypnosis at that time.
The second part of the appointment is devoted to hypnosis around the theme that we uncover during coaching.
You get comfortable in my large recliner, and through spoken words and sometimes music, I lead you through a process of relaxation so you can enter trance. I then guide you through an experience of either suggestions tailored to your desired result, an examination of a particular time or event that is troubling you, or an imagined experience designed to resolve a specific issue.
Hypnosis takes 45 minutes to an hour, and is followed by a brief conversation about how you can integrate everything you have learned into your conscious mind.
The second most common question I am asked is “What does it feel like to be in trance?”
Trance is a relaxed state where your subconscious mind is dominant and your conscious mind is awake and watching, but not particularly active.
Most people find being in trance very enjoyable. Your sense of time may be slightly altered, and your ability to remember certain experiences may be heightened.
The depth of hypnotic trance entered varies from person to person and from one experience to another. You may enter a very deep trance that feels like dreaming, or you may enter a light trance that feels like you are nicely relaxed and open to new experiences.
For more information on trance please see my blog on “Brain Waves and Trance.”

My Inspiration

Hypnotherapy is a gentle, holistic process of creating permanent change in your life. People often come to me after they have tried everything else. Others have told them "what" they need to do, but given them no help in "how" they can do it. I help you with the "how" so change can be easy and lasting..

Sherris Cottier Shank is a wonderful heart-centered person. She will always give her best and support you in the best way possible. Knowing her for years and having had the opportunity to work with her I can highly recommend her.
She and I worked through some past hurts and events that kept resurfacing in my relationships. I felt safe, understood, and she guided me to QUICKLY work through those events and gave me new tools to move forward. I am forever grateful.
I had an extremely powerful and moving session with Ms. Shank. With her guidance I was able to connect deeply with important feelings that I was not aware of. Her intuitive understanding of my situation made the experience safe and very meaningful. I have recommended her to several of my close friends.
I appreciate and recommend Sherris’s PastLife Regression work. Sometimes just understanding why we consistently react in a certain, unexplainable way to a particular trigger in our life is enough to free us from continuing to react that way. Her methods feel kind, safe and gentle - just like she is. Thank you Sherris!
Sherris was great! I didn’t know much about the process and she took time to explain everything to me and make sure it was a comfortable experience. I would definitely recommend!
I had wonderful experience in first session with Sherris. Best part is, first she understood the root problems and focused on those in that session. She gives homework to follow which continues to work for you after session, So far I feel very positive. Big thanks to her.
Working with Sherris is one of the most impactful things that I do when I'm feeling stuck, unable to move forward in the direction I want to go or when I'm beset with self-doubt that doesn't seem resonant with who I am and where I am in life. She is masterful at putting me at ease, allowing me to access the deep recesses of my subconscious and helping me find answers to the questions that I have in life. My time with her marks significant turning points and, if you're considering hypnotherapy, I would highly recommend that you give Sherris a call. You will be in the gentle hands of a master of her craft.
Just completed the first of three scheduled sessions. Sherris was personable, yet professional and quickly got down to the business of identifying my needs and creating a personal treatment plan. Her inviting office made me feel safe, comfortable and relaxed and I'm looking forward to my next session.
If you’re looking to be more in touch with your subconscious mind, this is the place. Gives a pleasant, comfortable experience. Very welcoming.
Initially I was a bit skeptical, but after the 4 sessions I'm 100% on board and think it was incredibly helpful. Would definitely recommend.
I was looking into hypnotherapy and I was fortunate to find Sherris. She is kind, understanding and great as a professional practitioner. Thank you Sherris.
Been to several other therapist and didn't feel I was being properly understood. However, Sherris made me feel heard. She was able to pinpoint and target some issue right away to start helping me feel some relief so I didn't feel overwhelmed or discouraged. She helped me stay focused and better interpret situations to help change my triggers and how it effected me so I wasn't feeling lost or deprived from happiness. For the first time in 10 years I feel I can feel progress and relief.
My experience with Sherris was life-changing. She helped me to find my parental voice and to see myself as a source of love, strength, light and more. I am so grateful for Sherris’ gentle voice and effective guidance and was amazed that the handful of sessions with her were more effective than the dozens of sessions I’d had with my traditional therapist. Thank you Sherris!
I was skeptical about being hypnotized, but going through the session I was pleasantly surprised at how well I responded. I also immediately felt positive about the future and what to do and say if relapsed.
My past life regression experience with Sherris Cottier Shank at Birmingham Clinical Hypnotherapy was so affirming and comforting. Sherris has a wonderfully calm and empathetic presence and she truly embodies lovingkindness. She expertly and intuitively led me down the path I was meant to follow during my regression. Thanks, Sherris!
Sherris is wonderful and very good at listening and detecting your issues. She is warm and compassionate.
This is the best experience I ever had. I would definitely recommend it to everybody.
