Hypnosis changes lives. It shifts our natural thinking patterns so we seek out and accept more positive and enriching experiences for our lives. I perform local Los Angeles hypnosis sessions, as well as seeing clients by Skype and phone. When considering where to go for a session, are there any advantages to getting hypnosis in Los Angeles?
First of all, Los Angeles is home to my alma mater, the first and oldest nationally accredited college of hypnotherapy, Hypnosis Motivation Institute in Tarzana, CA. The presence of this well-established institute of 40 years makes for a large group of extensively trained local hypnotherapists. There is also a significant Los Angeles community interested in personal change, as evidenced by the many nearby spiritual bookstores as well as spiritual conventions, such as Conscious Life Expo. One spiritual bookstore that specialises in hypnosis is Liberate Emporium in the popular East Hollywood neighbourhood of Los Feliz, CA, right in walking distance of Griffith Park. Owner and Hypnotherapist Cristina Dam is an experienced hypnotherapist and graduate of Hypnosis Motivation Institute with a thriving practice of clients.
If you don’t live in Los Angeles and are not yet a client of Kyra’s, phone or Skype sessions can be just as effective for your hypnotherapy needs. After the first session, phone appointments are just as effective for hypnosis in Los Angeles while being in the comfort of your home.
No matter where you’re looking for a hypnotist, be sure to check for credentials. Where did s(he) receive their credentials? Does she have a C.Ht (Certified Hypnotherapist credential, maybe certified by Hypnotherapists Union)? How long was she required to attend classes? What techniques does she use? Some psychologists have an M.A. or Ph.D but advertise that they perform hypnosis. You might want to ask her the same questions about whether or not she is also certified in hypnosis, and if so, how long did she take these classes for and what credential was received? Some practicing psychologists may have been required to take a class in hypnosis, but a certified hypnotherapist will have studied for at least a year. Basic weekend courses are offered online for “hypnosis certification”, but are not able to be thorough due to time constraints and do not prepare a hypnotist for every issue that could arise with a client.
Also be sure that the hypnotherapist you choose offers techniques beyond guided meditation. There is a vast difference between guided meditation and actual hypnosis. Guided meditation can be relaxing and have a short-term benefit, but only hypnosis techniques offer a lasting effect and lock the suggestions into the unconscious mind to create long-lasting or even permanent change.

May you find all you want in the changes you seek in life with the help of hypnosis (or through whatever methods may work for you!), whether it’s in Los Angeles or anywhere in the world.
