Hypnosis is very effective at treating targeted anxiety and panic attacks. As a physician with 30 years of experience hypnosis is my sole focus and we often see dramatic results after only two or three sessions. Conditions classically treated with hypnosis include fears and phobias (flying, needles, MRI), habits (nail biting, hair pulling), performance anxieties (public speaking, sports, shyness, test-taking) and more. My approach to hypnosis is the same as it was in medical practice, very goal oriented and specific. Together we will identify your challenge and set a clear goal on how we'll know as it's improving.
Hypnosis is not "mind control"! You are awake, alert and fully aware of what is going on around you. Yet you're in a very focused state allowing you to absorb suggestions that are meaningful (to you!). It's very limited in the number of visits and very specific in what it addresses. If I believe longer therapy is needed, we'll discuss that, as well.
My experience of having worked with patients and families both in good times and through the most difficult of them offers me, I believe, a unique perspective in identifying and achieving our goal.
