Hypnotherapy for supporting the mind in creating powerful changes

The key to every human's success lies in his mind. -Earl Nightingale


hypnosis, focused relaxation and support for improved wellbeing

Hypnotherapy is the therapeutic use of relaxation, visualization, and focused attention to bring about change. Suzie takes a mind-body-spirit approach (transpersonal approach) to identifying and releasing blocks that are keeping you stuck in undesirable patterns. This approach helps you to shift thoughts and behaviors that keep problematic habits, behaviors, and negative thinking in place.  It is also an excellent avenue for self-discovery. 

Hypnotherapy is a wonderful tool for self-discovery and healing. Using guided imagery and other techniques, your body-mind-spirit system can efficiently resolve barriers to your success by addressing the factors underlying distress and undesirable habits. This affords opportunities to address what lies below the surface instead of taking top-down approach. Creating optimal conditions for relaxation and focus, your subconscious mind acts like a computer to pull files associated with undesirable behaviors, thinking patterns, emotional disturbances, and other key information. Using the power of focus and the subconscious mind, your system can promptly address barriers and imbalances in a gentle, comfortable way.


Suzie honors each person's spirituality and its vital role in wellbeing. Accessing unconditional love through the heart center, forwards healing, movement, understanding, and brings about more joy. 



Hypnotherapy may be used to address a number of everyday concerns, like weight management, smoking cessation, nail biting, fears/phobias, anxiety, study skills, and more. Suzie's specialties are as follows:

  • Becoming Your Authentic Self
  • Intuition Development
  • Increasing Insight into Situations & Self
  • Achieving Life Goals

Myths about Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis is mind control.

Hypnosis is a state of concentrated focus. It cannot be forced. You are in control of your own mind and may choose to stop the session at any time.

While "under" hypnosis, you go to sleep and can’t remember anything.

There is no loss of consciousness during hypnosis. Instead, there is a heightened state of awareness. Because there is an inward focus and deep concentration, some details may be forgotten. If you have ever been so engrossed in a book that you lost track of time or did not hear someone call your name, then you have experienced a form of hypnosis.

People get stuck in a hypnotic state.

Since hypnosis is a focused mental state, it is relaxing. It is even possible to fall asleep during a session or if left unattended. If that occurred you would soon awaken, even without assistance.

Hypnosis can make you tell your deepest secrets or do other things.

Much to the dismay of novelists and screen writers, this is not so. You remain in control at all times. The hypnotherapist simply guides the process so that you can focus, relax, and achieve your goals.

I can’t be hypnotized.

As a focused state, relaxation is at the core of hypnosis. Everyone is capable of relaxation to some degree.
