"Hypnosis is a heightened state of focus and suggestibility in which the body and conscious mind are in a relaxed, natural state while the subconscious mind remains very alert and receptive to positive suggestions for change. People often refer to hypnosis as a "trance-like state," where one can concentrate intensely on a specific thought, memory, feeling or sensation while blocking out distractions. Hypnosis is a tool used to bypass the critical analysis of your mind so that the suggestions can be accepted and then incorporated into a new "automatic" behavior.
Therapeutic hypnosis is used to improve your health and well-being and is different from stage hypnosis that is used for entertainment purposes only.
"What society knows about hypnosis is usually what they have seen on TV or in the movies where a person is under someone's "spell." While that works great on film, it is far from the truth of what really happens in a Hypnotherapy session with a certified professional. Hypnosis is a natural state of the mind and when combined with effective suggestions, can assist a person with desired changes in their life.
The first session is 90 minutes for $225. All sessions thereafter are 55 minutes for $175.

with Todd Simon
I went to a hypnotherapist once before and it didn't work. Does this mean I cannot be hypnotized?
Hypnosis is a natural state that we have access to all day long. When you drive down the road and miss a turn or get lost in a movie or your favorite song, those are all states of hypnosis. The most common reason for failure to induce trance is lack of rapport and explanation of the state, or a Hypnotherapist without proper training who is using incomplete methods. Always check with the education and background of a new hypnotherapist before committing to a session.
Will I lose all control of my mind and body and do silly things?
No, you won't say or do anything that you don't want to. You will not start clucking like a chicken. Hypnosis is not a control state, it is an agreeable state for the mind and body to shift its perspective in life.
When I am 'under' will I be asleep?
The word Hypnosis comes from Greek origin meaning a "sleep-like state," however you will not be asleep, nor will you be unconscious. You will be aware of everything that is happening and what is being said the whole time, however, you will be so deeply relaxed that you may find yourself drifting into different levels of awareness.
Will I remember everything afterwards?
Most people do remember either everything or certain parts of the experience depending on how deep your mind goes. You will find that suggestions which have been given to you in hypnosis will resurface in your conscious, thinking mind after your session and these will be the thoughts that produce changes in your behavior or way of thinking and feeling.
Can I be hypnotized against my will?
No. Since you are still consciously aware of the process, you cannot be put under hypnosis against your will. At the same time, you also cannot be hypnotized to do something that you really don't want to do for yourself. For example, if your partner wants you to quit smoking but you are not ready to, your mind will block the suggestion with your own resistance and you will remain a smoker after the session.
How many sessions will it take to reach my goal?
The length of Hypnotherapy will be determined by your conscious will power, desire to change a behavior and how you handle your subconscious mind's need for resistance. Some clients seek relief in as little as a couple of sessions, while others feel it is a benefit for ongoing therapy for as long as they desire. Typically, a hypnosis client will be in counseling for far less time than with a psychologist or MFT. It is recommended that a new client work with a Hypnotherapist for a minimum of 3 to 6 sessions that are one week apart.
"I, and so many others, often look for the next diet, superfood, or tonic to remedy uncomfortable emotions or feelings of dis-ease; and unfortunately the solution (we all know) isn't found in some $30+ tincture from WholeFoods. It happens to be our internal environment that shapes our experiences. Bruce Lipton, PhD biologist, shared this profound insight with us many years ago in his book, "Biology of Belief". He said, you can inject various materials into the cell and it will not impact DNA, but if you change the cells environment, say a "sick cell", you can alter its genetics (epigenetics). It is my belief that hypnosis provides us with that very opportunity; it can serve as a tool to alter our environment by swapping unwanted associations in the subconscious for favorable ones thus imparting a "change" to our consciousness (environment).
Todd's hypnosis session provided me with just that; a change in my conscious mind regarding an ongoing stressful impetus. His candor, warmth and relaxing tone made for an impactful session. Given the opportunity to try this, I highly recommend it and suggest Todd Simon as your coach.
Thank you, Todd and I look forward to doing more sessions with you in the future :)." E.Stowe-Madison
"There are those rare and cherished moments in life when you enter that space of complete relaxation, total comfort and healing. In Todd's gentle care I enter those spaces." Pamela A.
"Todd Simon's work is profound and deeply valuable…for the individual and the world. His sessions heal you. They transform your energy, perceptions, and connect you to your breath, and body in ways that few healers truly know how to do. Each session is unique and Todd's hands are safe, tender, and gentle. Under his guidance, your body will awaken to it's own natural healing resources - you will go on a journey and experience healing injuries, asthma, allergies, etc.- past and present. The sessions ground you and leave you feeling like you've had an energy and face lift. They are not just profound but fun! I highly recommend experiencing Todd's gifts and connecting to your pure awakened nature." N. Allan
"I met Todd Simon around the beginning of 2002 at a party and immediately sensed a unique energy and quality about him. My healing sessions with Todd were a vital support to my process and my respect for Todd's abilities as a healer runs deep. He has a unique ability to transform weakness into strength and destructive emotions into supportive ones." "One day I said to Todd, 'I am angry. . .I don't know where it is coming from but I know it's not healthy. What can you do for me? At the end of my session with Todd I felt pure love and lightness of being. It was like night and day. This stayed with me for days. Thanks Todd for making my life more and showing me a special spiritual place that serves as a beacon for where I want to be all the time." Tim Freytag, a massage therapist currently practicing his healing techniques in Ibiza, Spain
"He has the capacity to transform people's energy and wellness through his intuition and carefully cultivated healing energies. He enables people to transcend their ordinary body awareness and delivers the body into a space where it can heal itself. He can put one finger on my back and I feel my whole world changing." Interior designer Barbara Brown

"My work with Todd was completely unexpected and utterly transformative. Our session together pushed me to a new level of peace, acceptance and joy that I had been struggling to reach on my own. I am so happy to have found this additional tool to enhance the spiritual and healing work I was already engaged in. I'm incredibly grateful for his compassion, gentleness, and wisdom. I've scheduled more sessions already."- Sascha A.
