Trauma & Adjunct
For people with a tendency to frequently dissociate due to past trauma, I've structured a method of changing perception of and response to the past that allows them to remain associated, or centered in themselves while at the same time viewing past traumas from a safe distance and directing changes in those without having to relive them. I would be happy to discuss this and any other methods I use with a treating doctor or psychotherapist or person interested in using hypnotherapy as an adjunct therapy.
These and other methods that I use accommodate virtually any spiritual orientation or philosophical stance, so can be used by anyone who wishes to benefit from them.
Chronic & Acute Pain
Regarding people with chronic or acute physical pain, together, we have been able to control and eliminate the effects of arthritis, post-surgical pain, Baker's cyst, IBS, migraine and other problems, usually using a combination of methods that centers around metaphor intervention. The most dramatic results seem to come from a close working together of each person's individual spirituality and use of metaphor. The client's own personal spirituality often provides the extra help needed to make changes in concrete conditions such as deterioration of cartilage and inflammation.
Please see my Google business page for specific results and recommendations, or view my CitySearch business page. One referring psychotherapist and several clients have offered to give further information to those who are interested in overcoming similar problems; people interested in using hypnosis can contact them by calling me at (831) 429-5763. I am happy to give information on hypnotherapy whether you are considering me or another hypnotherapist as a possible ally in healing.

Although I've written over 200 pages of hypnotic inductions to help people with a wide variety of problems and belief systems, it is primarily through one-on-one dialogue without a script that each person and I together explore the various combinations of methods that would be most comfortable and effective for him or her.
Both before applying hypnosis and while a person is in trance states, s/he is provided with choices as to different methods and approaches and, applying those moment by moment, together, we find the quickest, safest way to resolve the difficulty that person has decided to address. This way, as the situation reveals new features and insights, s/he is always in charge of which of a variety of methods we are using, and a series of safety nets are also in place, so s/he can return to full waking consciousness at will.
Many of these methods help people overcome the results of physical or mental trauma or illness. Since many clients' blocks, anxiety or physical dysfunctions are the result of past traumas, I have developed ways that allow people to change their responses to personal history without having to relive the past, as is sometimes the case with other hypnotherapy and psychotherapy approaches.
However, the techniques I've developed work well as an adjunct to psychotherapy, and it is always advisable to have as the primary therapist a good psychotherapist or psychiatrist when experiencing anxiety, depression, depersonalization, disassociation, severe or frequent mood changes, hallucinations or other signs of psychiatric problems.
When a client is seeing a doctor or psychotherapist, it is my custom to communicate closely with the treating physician and to discuss with him or her the efficacy for that individual person of the methods I plan to use before using them. Most therapists and doctors are willing to take the time to make whatever recommendations they feel are best for their patient, and some refer patients to me with directions for a specific problem to be addressed. For me, however, each client has the final say on what issues will be addressed and when we will address them, as long as, according to the treating physician and the law, there is no danger to his or her mental health.
