Is Your Maryland Hypnotist A Professional or A Stage Hypnotist?

When looking for a hypnotist in this area, you will find many with different backgrounds and training.  Since I have trained many of the hypnotists in the area, I have great pride in those that are now seeing clients.  I have been doing hypnosis since 1998 and HypnosisMaryland has been around since 2004.  I am very proud that many people who have come as clients and as students who will refer their friends and family to me.  And many will tell their doctors about me and they will refer clients to me.  I take this honor and responsibility very seriously.

When a client comes to me, I will spend time to learn as much as I can about them and their issues.  Then I will give them a great gift by relaxing them to the point that nothing will bother them.  This is their time to be removed from the outer world.  In a day of rush, rush, rush, I don’t see the reason to speed my time with the client by doing a rapid or speed induction.  If a client has very little time, then of course I will tailor the session to the client. But I am not a stage hypnotist and doing a stage hypnotist type of session will not bring about the results my clients are expecting.

In the Washington DC area, hypnosis and hypnotherapy has a place in this thriving center of stress.  Come and be relaxed by a professional certified hypnotist and hypnosis trainer, and go to a club in DC for the stage hypnosis.
