Ever wonder what hypnosis does? Watch this short video and find out! Your brain—and your life—can benefit from hypnosis for whatever goal you want to achieve. Maybe you are interested in hypnosis to lose weight (weight loss hypnosis), or some other goal. Hypnosis aligns your conscious desires with your subconscious motivation and belief. This video illustrates the result!
While it may be true that I can make you cluck like a chicken—if you really want to—that's not usually why people ask me to work with them. There is a world of difference between Stage Hypnosis for entertainment and Hypnotherapy for achieving your goals and improving your life. The goals of each are very different.
The fact is, your subconscious mind is in control of most of your behavior, thoughts, feelings, and even your body's functions. When you get your subconscious mind on board with what you consciously want, change comes more easily. Everything works better when your subconscious mind's belief and motivation line up with your conscious desires and goals. Hypnosis, EFT and Hypnotherapy help you do just that—faster and more effectively than talk therapy or positive affirmations alone.
Hypnosis lets you relax while your subconscious mind learns how to achieve your goals. Whatever has blocked you from success before tends to melt away when you replace thoughts that no longer serve you with thoughts that do. Since we're dealing with the subconscious mind, many people report feeling better without being able to pinpoint exactly why. Things just get easier and pretty soon goals are getting accomplished and life improves!
How fast, you ask? Some suggestions may have a very immediate effect, such as reducing anxiety or pain. Other suggestions about behavior or thought patterns may take 3-4 days to become noticeable. Other more deep-seated issues may require a few weeks or even months to resolve because there may be several layers or related aspects that must be addressed first.
By definition, your subconscious mind is working outside of your conscious awareness, making the changes necessary to get to where you want to go.
It may feel like magic, but what's really happening is your new subconscious life script is delivering better results for you—results you have chosen for yourself!
Hypnosis requires reinforcement, so listening to recordings of your hypnosis daily really helps the process. EFT works very fast too and does not require reinforcement, but again it may be necessary to work through various layers or aspects to achieve your goal. Often hypnosis and EFT help up to 75% faster than talk therapy alone.
We all grow up with ideas that limit us and make us believe that we can't overcome our challenges. Through Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy and EFT, we can UNLEARN those beliefs and find new ways to let our best selves and healthiest bodies shine through!

You're in the right place at the right time. Whatever you want to accomplish, you can harness the power of your mind to do it. There is no time like the present to achieve your goals and dreams!
Your subconscious mind is the seat of all automatic behavior and even bodily functions.

By working with both your conscious mind and your subconscious mind, you can achieve many goals in much less time than with talk therapy alone.You may be surprised at all the options here for creating success and happiness in your life.
You may be surprised to learn that you can do it all from the comfort of your home or office—with Remote Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT, Tapping)! As it turns out, hypnotherapy sessions by phone or secure video chat can be as effective as in person. I know. I saw virtually all of my clients in person for seven years before starting to travel full time. Now I see virtually all of my clients remotely, and they report getting the same great results as my face-to-face clients.
Check out all the options below under Advanced Hypnotherapy Services. If you don't see your area of interest, please ask about it. My work is very individual and holistic. Whatever your range of goals, chances are I can help you achieve them. If I can't, I will suggest other options for you.

Your complementary initial consultation can include everything from discussion of your goals and how hypnotherapy and EFT can help, to suggestibility testing, to an actual experience of hypnosis to see what it's like. In this free session, you'll receive hypnotic suggestions for general well-being.
Ready to schedule your Free Initial Consultation? Just call me at 888-315-1883.
They say that when we're ready, the right people, resources and opportunities show up. You're here now because there is something you want to achieve or resolve, or someone you want to help, and I'm here to support your success!
My name is Jackie Ambrow, and I'm a Certified Hypnotherapist. You may contact me for losing weight, stop smoking, a relationship issue or a health issue, or maybe something else. Maybe you've tried other approaches and so far nothing has worked. Maybe you're worried that you may never succeed, that maybe you don't have what it takes to overcome the problem or achieve your goal.
The way I see you, however, is that you have everything you need within you already to rise and meet any challenge! You only need to access those parts of yourself that will help you do it.
Helping people do that is something I do very well.
What if—instead of me just telling you that you have everything you need within you—you could experience it for yourself?
What if you could learn in a matter of weeks—not years or many long months—that you are capable of far more than you ever thought possible? If you could tap into your own potential, even just a little more than you do now, what would your life look like? What would you feel like?
For just this moment, close your eyes and use the power of your imagination and vividly imagine that you have already achieved the goal that you came here to my website looking to accomplish. What would it look like? Feel like? Sound like? Smell like? Even taste like? Take several moments and really get in touch with these feelings.
You have just glimpsed what is possible with the power of your own mind. You are more than just the sum of the parts of your life. Deep inside, you probably already know it. If you don't feel that you know it yet, you do know you have a yearning for more, even if you have become resigned to settling for less.
What I know is that all growth happens outside the comfort zone. All growth happens when we are challenged and make the decision to face our challenges.
You have unlimited potential to grow and rise to meet any challenge when you put your mind to it. Just ask my stroke clients who are working on regaining mobility, or my Army veteran client, Joy, who was struck by lightning 15 years ago and suffered chronic pain that used to interfere with her life. Her video testimonial you will see here soon. These clients are people just like you and they are rising to meet their challenges and using the power of their minds to succeed!
What I know about you—and maybe you don't yet know—is that you are like the phoenix, meant to rise from the ashes of any circumstance and to know yourself as the amazing, powerful being that you are. I work with my clients on all four levels: mental, emotional, physical and even spiritual, within the frame of their understanding. My goal always is to help you come to know the power you have to improve your life.
I've been privileged many times in my life to be in the right place at the right time. I've risen and met my own challenges and through them acquired skills, knowledge, beliefs and attitudes that foster success, inner strength, great relationships, health and happiness. In other words, I've been through my own transformations and helped others along the way with theirs.
And one of my most favorite things in the world to do is passing on what I have learned to YOU. My passion is your growth, success and happiness. Are you ready? I know I am.
I believe we are in the midst of a great awakening, a transformation of human consciousness. While it may seem that the world is falling apart in many ways, we are on the threshold of a great revolution, an evolution of awareness of our potential and the kind of world we can create together.
My vision mirrors that of Daisaku Ikeda, who said:
“A great human revolution in just a single individual will help achieve a change in the destiny of a society, and further, will enable a change in the destiny of all humankind.”
Transformation begins with the individual, so I see my work as assisting all humankind—through the ripple effect. As my client's vision expands and her life improves, she lifts up her family and all the people around them. As my client feels empowered, he empowers others to live and act and speak more freely. As my child clients see themselves succeed and rise above their difficulties, they become lights to their peers. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said:
“We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality—tied to a single garment of destiny—whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly.”
In few words, my mission is to transform the human species, one individual and small group at a time. I believe that each one of us is doing the same as we awaken to the light and power within us.
Besides being a Certified Hypnotherapist, I'm also a Certified Advanced Practitioner of Emotional Freedom Technique, also known as EFT and Tapping. I am a Transformational Anthropologist, that is, an applied anthropologist working for the evolution of human consciousness.
The next section gives you a good idea of the range and depth of the programs I offer. If you don't see your area of interest in the list, please contact me for a Free Initial Consultation. You may be surprised at what I can do for you!

Hypnotherapy and EFT with Jackie Ambrow, CHt, MA, Certified Hypnotherapist, Advanced EFT Practitioner and Transformational Anthropologist. Most sessions are conducted remotely by phone from the comfort of your home, office or other private setting. Not sure remote sessions can work? "After seven years of practice face to face, I now get the same great results remotely—by phone—as I got in person! I am specially trained to work with clients remotely, and they'll tell you, it works!" —Jackie
Achieve your goals in almost any area: relationships, success, prosperity, health and happiness! "With 500 hours of training, 10+ areas of specialty certifications, and 9 years experience, I can help you reach your goals!" —Jackie • First session usually is 2-2.5 hours • Subsequent sessions typically are 90 minutes • Custom hypnosis recordings for reinforcement included (with a few exceptions) (Medical / mental health areas require healthcare referral; simple forms provided.) HSA accepted.
Advanced techniques in EFT help to discharge negative emotions, change habits, and improve health and happiness. EFT works by tapping on acupressure points on the meridians of the body while repeating certain statements to help "rewire the brain". Tapping restores the energetic system of the body and mind, much like making sure the batteries get put back in CD player right. Since you will not require reinforcement, EFT sessions are not recorded. Sessions last typically 60 to 90 minutes.
Hypnotherapy sessions take place in person for young children (old enough to form a sentence through about 8-9 years). Remote sessions for most children ages 8-13. (Teens receive sessions remotely more like adults.) Children's sessions are 30-60 minutes. Issues may include: ADD/ADHD, separation anxiety/abandonment, divorce and family blending, self-esteem, confidence, performance in academics, sports and the arts, general habits and more. Please ask. Parental/Guardian Consent Required.
Google Hangouts and free teleconferencing are great ways to get a group together to reach a shared goal using Hypnosis and/or Emotional Freedom Technique. If you and your friends have an idea of what you'd like to achieve, please make your request. Past groups have included: Mastering Relaxation, Subconscious Relationship Behavior and Relationship Strategies, and Weight Loss Hypnosis. How about Pain Management (with a healthcare referral for each participant) or Stop Smoking?
For a majority of goals, anxiety is a big stumbling block. When you reduce anxiety, you make it much easier to achieve your goal and maintain it. This is true for self-improvement and performance goals as well as health and well-being. Relatively few people know this two-pronged approach to overcoming anxiety, and that's why so many people can't get rid of it even with professional help. Using your own physiology, learn to stop new anxieties from forming and toggle into relaxation at will!
Live and customized to you, these two hypnotherapy sessions held a week apart will give you the foundation for mastering relaxation for life. Highly recommended for anyone who finds anxiety is getting in their way. Includes hypnosis recordings of your sessions, customized to you, for your reinforcement and your own personal hypnosis library. If you suffer from anxiety disorder or panic attacks, you may need additional sessions to remove your specific triggers. (Referral required.)
Save over $300 by purchasing the sessions recorded live on the Journey to Magnificence conference call. All of the material is included plus hypnosis for each session. Four recordings in all: • Two classes, including hypnosis for each class • Two separate, shorter hypnosis reinforcement recordings taken from the classes for daily reinforcement. • Instructions and MP3 links included This is a very affordable way to receive the foundation for Mastering Relaxation.
These 8 Core Sessions come from the American Hypnosis Association's Weight Loss Hypnosis certification specialty. This program focuses on helping you lose weight and happily maintain it by eliminating the causes of emotional eating. Most people do the yo-yo diet: they lose weight and then gain it back—plus some! How frustrating—and bad for your health! When you learn to love yourself and care for yourself, you can lose the weight and keep it off for good!
Start with the 8 Core Sessions for Weight Loss Hypnosis and then continue to work on your specific blocks to weight loss, health and happiness until you reach your goal weight! By then you will be able to happily maintain it and be prepared to live the life of your dreams. Totally customized to you, you'll receive recordings of the hypnosis we personalize to you in each session for reinforcement and for your own personal hypnosis recordings library.
Save $1,000+! This is the same 8 Core Sessions of the Weight Loss Hypnosis Program used in customized sessions. You get all the same cognitive learning, handouts, and activities for reinforcement—as the full-priced, customized program, plus each week you receive: • Pre-recorded hypnosis MP3s, and • Personalized coaching calls with Jackie to keep you on track, solve any roadblocks to your success, and discuss your experiences.
Ever been in a hotel room full of people trying to stop smoking with hypnosis? About half actually get hypnotized. Some stop smoking for good, while others light up when the next big stress hits. Usually those hotel hypnotists have basically a weekend certificate. I have 500+ hours of training, additional certifications in 10+ specialties, 9 years of experience—and a success rate of 100% for those who complete the program I recommend. Call me now to become a Permanent Ex-Smoker: 888-315-1883.
When we do your free Pre-Stop Smoking assessment, we'll find out about your smoking habit, your motivation to stop smoking, and how much stress you have in your life. Then I'll develop a customized Stop Smoking Hypnosis program just for you! Most people need from 1-6 sessions to become a Permanent Ex-Smoker. Consider it an investment in your future health, prosperity and happiness! Start the process to Stop Smoking today. Call me at 888-315-1883.
In a small group, we'll work to create the same success as you would receive in private Hypnotherapy. Gather a few friends together who want to stop smoking and we'll create a program for you all. Small groups only—3 to 5 people. Most groups are conducted using Google Hangouts. Occasionally if I am in the area, I will do a group in person.
Many of these areas require a referral from a licensed healthcare provider in medical or mental health. Don't let that stop you because it's relatively easy! The healthcare referral protects both of us; you get the licensed provider evaluation and follow-up you need, and I can be sure as your adjunct therapist that you're receiving appropriate licensed care. Keep in mind that fewer sessions are needed than in talk therapy. Keep in mind that I consider special needs on a case-by-case basis.
Dealing with chronic pain? You can learn to manage pain in as few as four to six hypnotherapy sessions. In hypnosis, you can learn to interpret warning signals, while increasing your comfort without negative side effects or interference with your medical regimen. In fact, hypnosis for pain management can help you reduce the need for pain medication. With additional sessions and a doctor's supervision, you can even withdraw from prescription narcotics more easily and reduce withdrawal symptoms.
Five to eight sessions in hypnotherapy for Pre/Post Surgery can help you undergo procedures with fewer complications, less pain, decreased bleeding, and faster recovery afterwards. This holistic approach deals with all aspects of preparing for and recovering from medical procedures. A healthcare referral from a licensed provider is required. Please ask for details.
Expecting a Baby? Congratulations! Now you can prepare for and experience childbirth with relaxation, confidence, lower risk of complications, and faster recovery using the powers of your subconscious mind. My own OB/GYN from when I had my daughter began making referrals to me for hypnotherapy when he learned that I had become a Certified Hypnotherapist. He had used hypnosis successfully as a resident on a patient when she could not have any anaesthesia for a C-section. It works! Start now!
Immune Disorder sufferers and cancer patients benefit from harnessing the power of the mind to find relief from their symptoms. Immune Disorders may include such conditions as: cancer, diabetes, insulin resistance, psoriasis, asthma, vitiligo, MS, rheumatoid arthritis and many others. Hypnosis allows a person to access control over bodily functions that normally are outside of conscious control. This process may allow the individual to improve their condition through the mind-body connection.
You may also benefit from hypnosis with a referral for medical issues such as these: • Medication Side Effects - reduce or eliminate these effects • Sexual Dysfunction - improve your love life and develop strategies for coping with problems in this area • Insomnia - improve the onset, quality and duration of sleep • Bed Wetting - help to reduce or eliminate this condition
Hypnosis for PTSD uses a proven combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy reinforced with hypnosis, de-sensitization to what triggers PTSD, and re-training to be comfortably active in the world once again. Since the trauma lives in the subconscious mind and the energetic system of the body, hypnotherapy is very effective. Most people can conclude hypnotherapy in a year or less, whereas it might take 5-6 years (if ever) in talk therapy alone. It's cognitive work reinforced with hypnosis!
In hypnotherapy, both children and adults with ADD/ADHD can learn to work WITH the special way their brains work, rather than AGAINST it to achieve greater success. Generally 5-8 sessions are sufficient to master the ADD/ADHD brain! Sessions focus on different challenges of ADD/ADHD: impulse control, planning and follow-through, organization, focus and concentration, behavior and much more. Your doctor may be able to reduce or eliminate your ADD/ADHD medications after completing hypnotherapy.
Are you ready to have the relationship of your dreams? The late Dr. John G. Kappas, a brilliant Hypnotherapist and Clinical Psychologist and founder of HMI, worked with more than 25,000 clients over a period of 30 years to help many people enhance their relationships. I use his methods to help you attract and/or create your dream relationship, Then the goal is to get (back) into the honeymoon stage and make it last indefinitely! Individuals and couples, with most work in individual sessions.
Opioid addiction is now considered a growing epidemic due to the overprescription of narcotic painkillers. Many people start with prescription pain medications and graduate to heroin or other substances. Overdoses are becoming too commonplace. If you are addicted to opioids, please seek help right away. With a licensed provider's supervision and referral, you too can transition to a life free of narcotics. See the description of the whole program below.
Learn how to communicate effectively, understand the Five Freedoms, develop your self-esteem and self-confidence, heal from dysfunctional relationships and build healthy relationships for a happier life.
No referral required! If you want to succeed but lack confidence, motivation, focus, retention or skills, never fear! You can acquire all of these using your subconscious mind in hypnosis. You can overcome test anxiety, improve your performance under stress and sail through public speaking, sales presentations and job interviews. Let me show you how.
When you find that you just can't shake off the sadness, loneliness and hurt anymore, it's time to ask for help. No matter what you've lost or the trauma you've endured, hypnotherapy reaches the subconscious home of your pain and suffering. You can achieve peace and healing by addressing the thoughts and feelings that no longer serve you and replacing them with those that do. You can even use hypnosis to say goodbye to loved ones and untie the knots of pain and betrayal. Call today!
A Harvard thesis in the robotics program looked at six patients who had lost mobility due to a stroke. Even after years of lost mobility, hypnosis helped them! If you have lost mobility due to a stroke, hypnosis may help you in your program of neuro-rehabilitation. See the story in the corresponding section below for how I began to work with patients to regain mobility after a stroke, even years later—and helped them get results!
An epidemic is making it way through the heart of our nation: the opioid crisis. Veterans and hard-working Americans are especially hard hit. There are not enough treatment services available, even if insurance will cover it. I am offering a new program that combines several approaches from hypnotherapy and EFT to help those who want to get off the narcotics and learn to manage pain and stress without them. A licensed healthcare provider's referral is required.
Up to six sessions may be necessary to teach pain management techniques in hypnosis to begin to put chronic pain within your control and comfort. We begin here because it is the reason you went on the prescription painkillers to begin with. While you practice and master these techniques, your need for the medication will be reduced. Your doctor will determine the best way to proceed with cutting down on your medication. Remember that a healthcare referral is required for this 4-part program.
Since anxiety—our response to stress—is a big part of the pain experience, it is essential to address anxiety early on. By learning how anxiety forms and how to toggle out of anxiety into relaxation at will, you master relaxation so that you can bring your comfort into your control. Part 1 and Part 2 can be switched if your anxiety is greater than your pain. Choose from two live, customized hypnotherapy sessions ($180/session) or pre-recorded classes ($50 for the two-part series).
Use hypnosis to improve your sleep! If you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep or both, then this session will help you do both. You will learn what makes great sleep possible, how to create your own pre-sleep routine and how to get into a good pattern of sleeping and waking. Hypnosis will reinforce these new habits and your new routine for you so that you can be successful in getting good shut-eye. Good sleep helps you manage pain and recover from opioid dependency and addiction.
The fourth ingredient is hypnosis to reduce any symptoms of withdrawal. Your particular narcotic(s) may be associated with all kinds of unpleasant withdrawal symptoms, but many can be reduced or eliminated with hypnosis and/or EFT. For you it may take only one session, or it might take three or four. Much depends on you, your body and your level of stress and nutrition. Usually by the time you are ready to reduce your medication, you will be more than ready to handle any symptoms that may arise.
Sometimes major advances in a field come from outside the field! In this case, a thesis out of Harvard—from the Robotics program, not medicine—looked at the use of hypnosis to help stroke patients regain mobility, even years after a stroke. It turns out that hypnosis helps and warrants further study!
The wife of a stroke patient did a lot of research online on anything that might help her husband regain his mobility on his right side. She came across a thesis at Harvard that reported on the research on six patients and how hypnosis helped them improve mobility. She contacted me and asked if I could try hypnotherapy with her husband who was three years out after having his stroke that left his right side paralyzed. Once he agreed, of course I said, YES!
A thesis from the Harvard robotics program discusses successful results of using hypnosis to improve mobility after a stroke—more than six months out. This study indicates that neuro-rehabilitation using hypnosis needs further study because it helped Improve mobility in the six patients they studied. You can read the thesis here: http://www.biorobotics.harvard.edu/pubs/sdthesis.pdf With my background in hypnotherapy, medical physiology and anatomy, I knew I could craft a plan to help this man.
This stroke patient, now three years after his stroke, still had all the anatomical connections for mobility to be possible, according to his neurologist. All that was missing was his brain's ability to communicate with his body. With all the necessary anatomy intact, it was just a matter of helping the brain to learn how to tell his body to move.
After seven months of hypnotherapy sessions, my stroke client is now able to do things he could not do before our work together: kick a ball with his right foot, pedal the elliptical machine with his right foot, stand taller and longer without sagging, roll over in a controlled movement, feel and use three previously numb/paralyzed fingers on his right hand, use his right arm to support himself, and more. His PTs and neurologist are very pleased, and so is he!
About six months into hypnotherapy, the wife's research lead them to add Lion's Mane Mushroom, clinically proven to aid in memory and neurological health, to his regimen. He is now able to read for the first time in three years since the stroke. We have worked on confidence, forgiveness, and a great deal of specific suggestions for building mind-body connections and mobility. Although he is not walking yet, he has made more progress in these seven months than in the last three years.
In the United States, it is common practice for American physicians to tell stroke patients not to expect any more improvements after six months of therapy. In Europe, stroke survivors continue with therapy for six, eight or more years after a stroke, and they continue to make improvements. The reason for this is the brain's "plasticity," the technical term for the brain's innate ability to take over the functions of a part of the brain that is injured. The process takes time but it does happen!
Do you need help with a medical or mental health issue? Many goals fall within the ordinary scope of Hypnotherapy—vocational and avocational goals and self-improvement—so no referral is necessary. However, issues that have a medical or mental health component or origin do require a healthcare referral from a licensed healthcare provider.
Rest easy—my simple letter and one-page Provider Reply Form makes the process easy! (You can download a copy with instructions under "Files You Can Download" near the bottom of this webpage.) With your licensed provider's okay, you can use Hypnotherapy to work with your body-mind connection, habit control and stress reduction to help you deal with many different issues. I can see you for your first session without the referral, but you will need to get it to me by your second session to continue working with me.
Keep in mind that Hypnotherapists are considered adjunct therapists rather than primary therapists and do not diagnose or treat medical or mental health conditions. In keeping with the Hypnotherapists Code of Ethics and for your own well-being, please seek out a qualified, licensed practitioner if you suffer from any condition with a medical or mental health origin or component.
Although Hypnotherapy may help many conditions through the mind-body connection and stress reduction, it should never take the place of proper medical or mental health diagnosis, treatment or advice. Likewise, if you are concerned about other matters outside the scope of Hypnotherapy, please consult with your attorney, accountant, pastor or other professional for advice and counsel.
"JACKIE TOOK THE TIME TO UNDERSTAND MY NEED AND THEN PROPOSED A PLAN using a combination of hypnosis and EFT that gave me amazing results! She is professional, supportive, and can even support remote work. I highly recommend working with her."
—Michael F. in Columbia, Missouri
"YOU SAVED MY LIFE...AND MADE ME AND MY FAMILY VERY HAPPY! Jackie, there is not a way to express my gratitude for what you have done for me and my family. I am so happy that I found you! Thank you for saving my life! Thank you for making me feel so proud of myself again! Thank you for helping me to get up everyday and not want to smoke at all!!!As you know I am a breast cancer survivor and it was so embarrassing to continue to smoke knowing that my chances of my cancer coming back was a risk if I did not quit. But it is a drug. It is addicting and I could not find the willpower to quit on my own. Literally, thank God for hypnosis! I feel like a million bucks! Smoke free now for 78 days!! Woo-hoo!!!"
—Karen Raithel in Jefferson City, Missouri
"I CONTACTED JACKIE FOR HELP WITH PREPARING FOR MY FAMILY PRACTICE MEDICAL BOARD CERTIFICATION EXAM. I had been anxious and unable to concentrate [when I tried to take the exam earlier]. Through phone sessions and recorded playbacks I was able to relax, focus and PASS MY EXAM!"
—Dr. D. in Albuquerque, New Mexico
"THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME TO ACHIEVE MY GOAL OF PASSING THE STATE BOARD OF NURSING EXAM AND GETTING MY RN LICENSE. It had been such a long road for me and was hard at times to keep pushing forward. [Before seeing you] I took the test five times over a three year period. Each time I took it I would get nervous, upset and sick to my stomach. I also had trouble focusing and concentrating when I was reading and studying, always worried if I would pass my exam. I almost passed it each time but could not seem to get over that hurdle. Jackie, you were able to take all that away from me when you hypnotized me. Thank you for caring and taking the time to understand my situation. It was awesome that you gave me a CD of our session that I could listen to every night before bed. I was actually able to be excited when I scheduled my test and was able to focus and remain calm while taking it. FINALLY! Passing my nursing exam on the sixth time thanks to your help should be proof enough that what you do works. At least me and my family know it does and we thank you so much for helping me get my RN license!"
—Debbie McDonald, R.N. in Columbia, Missouri
"WHEN I FOUND JACKIE, I WAS STRUGGLING IN MY LIFE. I had a great career, great family, married with a house full of kids, but yet with all the success, I was struggling to keep my life in order. I felt like I should have had more accomplished by now, have more to show for it and certainly, should have been filled with joy, but I wasn’t. Even though I showed up to my life every day and persevered, I just couldn’t find myself. I didn’t know who I was or what direction my life was going. I had been struggling with anxiety, depression , insomnia, weight gain and feeling like I was powerless to make any changes or do anything that would get me started in the right direction. My psychiatrist suggested I seek counseling, but I had tried that before and never could find a connection with a therapist. I came across Jackie’s listing in the Psychology Today index of therapists in my area—and once I read her short bio, I knew I had to call her. After working with Jackie, through hypnotherapy, I now know all of the things that have been weighing me down for years: the doubts, fears, emotions and unhealthy thinking that had led me down a path of unhappiness and lost identity. I continue to work with Jackie on the litany of problem areas that I have and the progress I personally have made, as well as the empowerment and direction I feel, is staggering! After our first session together, I had the best week I can remember. I had immense energy, clarity, direction and joy. I know that life’s challenges and trials won’t end, but now I feel like I have the tools to deal with them. I will never allow myself to be so off-center and without joy again. It has been incredibly liberating and empowering to realize that I have the power within me to bring about colossal changes in my life, that I had conceded were out of my reach [before I met Jackie]."
—Cindy L., MSN, RN-BC, in Columbia, Missouri
"I AM PLEASED TO SAY THAT HYPNOTHERAPY HAS DONE SO MUCH FOR ME! Over the course of several one-on-one 90 minute sessions with Jackie I have noticed tremendous changes in my day-to-day life. I used to be someone with major stress and anxiety problems. That was one of the hardest things I was coping with and not able to control. I can't express how much less stressed I am now after doing the hypnosis. I'd leave Jackie's office feeling refreshed and relaxed and able to focus on my daughter's needs as well as mine. I have quit smoking as well. I am able to sit down and read a book to my daughter and be completely focused on her and not stressed about things that really aren't even important enough to stress about. Jackie takes the time to listen to what her client wants to work on and is dedicated to scheduling appointments that best fit her clients' schedules."
—Stacy in Columbia, Missouri
