In fact, the Yahoo search I just ran returned 11,500,000 hits for “Effectiveness of Hypnotherapy”, so in the face of that amount of evidence, I think even the most ardent skeptic would have to admit that when we say “Sleep,” something powerful happens. As amazing and effective [...]

Hypnotherapy and Cancer Treatment

It’s been a while since I posted about Clinical Hypnotherapy (CH) as not only a vehicle for mental health treatment but, also as a powerful adjunct therapy for many other conditions…including cancer.

The Truth about Hypnotherapy

I am passionate about hypnosis and hypnotherapy. That’s why I am constantly giving presentations and lectures about them. I speak at colleges and universities, professional symposia and forums, community organization meetings and to people I meet socially.

Change Your Thinking; Change Your Truth

When things don’t go your way and the world seems to have a special ‘stiffy’ with your name on it, how do you react, or more importantly, what do you tell yourself about your situation? Do you walk around and tell yourself, “I’m not good enough,” or “I’m depressed,” or I’m broken?” When we’re getting [...]

Sunshine or Shadow, Revisited

Today I would like to revisit a blog that I originally posted on March 7, 2013: Sunshine or Shadow?  I love to collect quotations and have since high school. Back then I had a literature teacher who required us to keep a notebook, and write down quotes that we came across in our readings that [...]
