MindSight Hypnosis for Portland, Oregon

Welcome. Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to browse to learn more about my practice and how hypnotherapy can help you get rid of persistent problems . Please contact me if you have questions. I'm happy to help in any way I can.

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is nothing more than relaxation combined with the natural awareness of a child. In many ways it's like meditation or daydreaming.

What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis, the brain's natural learning ability and a special form of guided visualization to change beliefs and habits.

Can you be hypnotized?

Anyone can be hypnotized as long as you're comfortable with the therapist and the situation.

Will you lose control?

No. You're in complete control during hypnosis and will not say or do anything you don't want to do. After all, if a hypnotist could make anyone do anything, wouldn't every politician would be a hypnotist?

Can you get stuck in hypnosis?

No. You can return from hypnosis at any time simply by opening your eyes.

Will you remember what happened?

Yes. You're conscious, aware and we're talking throughout the session.

Time for a Change?

We all know it's easier to form habits than break them. Some of these habits are positive while others negatively impact our health and well-being. At MindSight, you're not alone. All of us need a little help sometimes to battle the obstacles standing in our way. Wherever you are on your journey to health, hypnosis can help you make a change for the better.

Unleash Your Subconscious

Hypnosis unlocks the power of your subconscious to fix common problems, and there are more than 12,000 research papers documenting its effectiveness. It’s a time-tested approach that’s helped millions change their life quickly, easily and without willpower.

What Problems can it Solve?

Hypnosis solves a wide variety of concerns. The most common ones are:

That's not all. Motivation, drinking or shopping problems are easily fixed. Other areas, like procrastination, irrational fears, and recovering from a difficult past are quickly resolved. I also work with a variety of performance problems like test anxiety, sports and sexual concerns. Even hot flashes, morning sickness and motion sickness can be stopped or substantially improved.

Choosing a Hypnotherapist

Rapport between the client and practitioner is incredibly important and without rapport it's not likely to work. Find another practitioner if it doesn't feel right for any reason.

Just like doctors and psychotherapists, there can be big differences between hypnotists. Hypnotherapy isn’t licensed by the state so training and certification criteria vary widely. Many certifying agencies require only 6 weeks of training and that’s not a lot when you think about it.

Experience is also important. Research shows mastering a skill takes 10,000 hours of working with clients. For most it means 8 – 10 years of practice. Less experienced therapists can produce good results but it may take a few more sessions and cost a bit more. Of course, that's not always the case.

Free Consultation

I offer a free face-to-face or telephone consultation to help you understand what we do, how it works and answer your questions. Of course, there's no charge or obligation if you decide not to proceed for any reason. Also, the initial session always includes a consultation so you can schedule a consultation and continue if it feels right. It's a great way to save time and get started quickly.
