Hi there, I’m James, and I specialize in making hypnosis useful, fun, and very illuminating for you.

Hypnosis is very different from talk therapy. We utilize the latest understandings in brain science to work with how our nervous systems encode information. Loosely speaking, it’s ‘applied neurology’. Think of it this way, we have the side of our nervous system that’s responsible for ‘fight or flight’, and the side that takes care of ‘resting and digesting’. In hypnotic states, it is easy to recognize old patterns and create new ones. I don’t diagnose, I help you find and make changes.
I often work with clients who wish to experience a past life, ancestral healing, or have what might loosely be called mystical or spiritual experiences with the kinds of epiphanies that come with this work. I act as a guide that helps you to have the experience and then return with new knowledge, wisdom, and understanding.
I believe that there is a pathway to mature masculinity, and that the world needs this more than ever. If you’re struggling with how to be a man, what it means to be a man, or what it means to be a husband or father in mid life, I’ve got space for you. All of your beliefs are welcome. For my male clients I very highly recommend checking out the Mankind Project. https://mankindproject.org/. The antidote to toxic masculinity is mature masculinity.
Hypnosis works by guiding you into very deep states of relaxation. In this state the subconscious becomes easy to communicate with, and with simple prompts it will let go of old problem states and update itself. Your subconscious has your best interest at heart- often it runs an old script that worked for you once upon a time. A little gentle inquiry is usually enough for it to change for you.
