Career Development

Public Speaking

I’ll never forget when I had a problem with public speaking. My teeth chattered, my knees knocked, and I was as red as a beet. Not anymore. I now speak to hundreds of people, and I love it! So can you. If speaking to groups is important to your work, don’t let fear stop you from progressing in your career. Hypnosis can help you deliver your speech with confidence and ease. Once you’ve finished that special presentation, and you hear the applause, you’ll take a deep breath and exhale slowly, smile and feel proud!

Increasing Income

Would you believe that some people have a fear of money, or they feel guilty if they have money? There are numerous reasons why people are stuck at a particular income and/or have made money only to lose it time and time again. Don’t be the person with your pockets or wallet empty. Uncover what’s keeping you from enjoying a more financially prosperous life. Then learn what you can do about it.

Time Management

If you don’t manage your time, you’ll wonder where your time has gone. You’ll also be behind in whatever you wanted to be ahead of. Time management skills get developed at a very young age. Most people were not taught time management and therein lies the problem! Introducing a skill that’s not natural or habitual can lose its momentum. Hypnosis will help you establish a new way of embracing that which once felt foreign. Seeing and experiencing a more productive day/week/month/year through time management not only helps career wise but enhances all areas of your life.


Sometimes motivation is so illusive that you believe you’ll never experience it as often as you wish. Bah humbug! Motivation exists within you right now. You just have to know how to tap it. It’s more a mental thing than anything else. Hypnosis can assist you in getting in touch with your inner resources… motivation, determination, and your desire to succeed. You’re like an underground spring ready to gush forth. All you need now is to prime the pump!

Destructive Habits


Fears and phobias are scary. Your heart rate increases, you begin to hyperventilate, and you have a feeling of loss of control, etc. Wouldn’t it be nice to feel free again knowing your problem is gone? Through hypnosis and desensitization techniques, ridding yourself of a pesky fear/phobia is doable. It was for me!


Having sleepless nights? Counting sheep not helping you fall asleep? Let hypnosis help lull you to sleep. You’ll wake up in the morning refreshed and relaxed, knowing you’ve had a pleasant night’s sleep. Helping you sleep better has never been easier.


Do your innards feel twisted, chest feel tight, or do you feel internally edgy and tense? Relief is on its way. Once again the use of hypnosis and desensitization techniques can help you overcome those uncomfortable and sometimes debilitating feelings. Get started and reclaim the good feelings you once experienced. Call now.

General Self Improvement, Motivation

How many times have you told yourself you were going to do something, only to tell yourself the exact same thing again, several weeks later? Of course, what you intended to do never got done. Yes, we can all come up good “reasons” — actually excuses — for not following through on things. Perhaps this has been a major problem for you in some areas of your life (or all areas). MOTIVATION starts from within. Believe me, you have it; you just have to uncover it! That’s the beauty of hypnosis… it taps those wonderful resources you already have, especially MOTIVATION!


As one enters the later years of their life, in most instances sixty-five years old and beyond, a new and different transition period begins for the individual. People find themselves in the position of formulating a new self-perception. Things that can be true,
are that the individual may find him or herself moving from full time employment, to part time employment, or actual retirement. Likewise, the person may experience changes in the status of their health, which they are not accustomed to, as the aging process begins to accelerate slightly. A decrease in ones degree of independence can become an issue. The changes in employment status, a possible instability regarding health, questioning ones self-worth and decreased independence can all be anxiety producing for the senior. Hypnosis can help significantly with many of the issues mentioned above by reducing anxiety, increasing relaxation and helping produce a needed sense of security.


Hypnocoaching is a dynamic blending of hypnotherapy and life coaching, which can provide you with the tools, guidance, accountability, and mental training to achieve your life’s purpose and desires.

Hypnocoaching can:

  • Help you uncover limiting beliefs and replace them with better ones
  • Change old patterns of restrictive thinking and instill positive thinking
  • Empower you to make healthier choices and decisions
  • Enable you to become more aware of living in the present moment with enthusiasm as you move joyfully and successfully into the future
  • Assist you in passionately and intentionally living a fuller & more satisfying life

Living the Power of Now

This program is designed for people who are willing to consider that the present moment is all you ever have. Further, the Now needs to be the primary focus of your life. Possibly at this time you dwell in the past or future with brief visits to the Now. I am suggesting you dwell in the Now and pay brief visits to the past and future only for practical purposes. This program is intended to bring you into the paradigm of always saying “YES” to the present moment and reaping the many rewards it has to offer.

(Physician referral may be required)

Pre and Post Operative Assistance

Surgery can be unsettling. Fears arise, jitters are common, and anxiety may be present. During your hypnotic session, hypnosis and guided imagery along with positive suggestions are given to you prior to surgery. Feelings of calmness and well being are enhanced. Suggestions are also given for a quick, easy, and painless recovery. Oftentimes, physicians comment on how well the patient did in surgery and how fast they’ve healed. Generally a hypnotic CD is designed for the pre and post operative surgery.

Chemotherapy: Alleviation of Side Effects

You hear about so many negative things that may happen to you while receiving chemotherapy. People become very sensitive and suggestible to what they hear, especially when they’re experiencing something traumatic. They build monsters in their heads. You don’t have to. Hypnosis can help alleviate side effects you thought were inevitable. Your first job is to get into a positive frame of mind and recognize that just because certain side effects happened to others, doesn’t necessarily mean it will happen to you. Hypnosis can assist you in knowing a greater and better truth for yourself.

Pain Management

Pain is not only physically debilitating but mentally and emotionally as well. There are numerous effective hypnotic techniques to reduce your pain. Upon your initial visit, reduction of pain via the use of hypnosis is accomplished. During that same session, you will be taught how to decrease your pain through self-hypnosis. Most often, a CD is created at the time of the session. This CD is a guide to help reinforce alleviating and/or eliminating your discomfort.

Dental Anxiety

You haven’t been to the dentist in how long? What’s stopping you? One of the beauties of hypnosis is that it can help you overcome anxiety and/or fears regarding dental work. Besides plaque build up and bad breath, serious problems can arise if you don’t take care of your teeth and gums. Please don’t put off something that’s so important to your health. Isn’t time your smile was one you could be proud of?

Men’s Group

We all know a man that might have interest in better knowing himself and improving his communication skills. We are now offering a men’s group at the Hypnosis Center of Dunwoody, where confidentiality will be honored. Members will be given the opportunity to attend two sessions free of charge to assure that a group experience is something they desire. The leader of this group is Alton Reynolds, a Licensed Professional Counselor, with ten years of experience running groups and more than 25 years helping men with various issues.

The group will be held on Wednesday evenings, from 6:30 pm until 8:00 pm. The number of participants will not exceed ten.

It would be nice if we could all get along. However, the reality is….there are some of us that can’t or won’t. For those of you who are having difficulty in a relationship, or are trying to get over a relationship, or want to have a relationship, or simply want to successfully end one, hypnosis can assist you. Whether you want to enhance your relationship or be desensitized to it, the time is now. Don’t put off your happiness. Life is meant to be enjoyed.

Sexual Dysfunction


Naturally, sexual dysfunction is one of the more difficult subjects to talk about; however, how much longer do you want to continue holding onto a problem that has been troubling you, and possibly getting worse? If your problem has not been resolved through medical treatment, and you believe it is psychological, then hypnosis can help. Once you begin discussing your problem, then you’ve begun to face it and you’re on your way to overcoming it.

Smoking Cessation/Quitting Smoking

How often have you said to yourself “If another person asks me why I don’t stop smoking, or shows me another article on what smoking can cause … lung cancer, heart disease, not to mention bad breath…. I’ll scream!” Well guess what? Same thing happened to me (Essy). I smoked 2 ½ packs a day (sometimes more) for years. I finally got smart. You can too. I know what smoker’s go through, I was one. I did my master’s thesis on stopping smoking through the use of hypnosis. Believe me, you’re in good hands if you want help stopping smoking. And guess what? I won’t badger you to quit. You’ve got to want stop just like I did. It makes it a lot easier.

Sports Performance

Love it, love it, and love it. Whether it’s golf, tennis, racquetball, baseball, or any other sport you can think of, hypnosis can assist you with enhancing your performance, building your confidence, fine tune your technique, and advance your skill. So if you’re in a slump, or simply want to improve upon your current game, hypnosis will give you that extra edge you desire.

Telemental Health

Welcome to telemental health, a beneficial component of remote therapy

TeleMental Health (TMH) Therapy is provided when a client is seen via videoconferencing by a licensed therapist, certified in TMH. It can also consist of only phone conversations when video conferencing is not available.  During this time of social distancing due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), TMH is now considered the best method to deliver you a safe, convenient, and comfortable way of receiving hypnotherapy and psychotherapy, in the comfort of your own home. As Clinical and Licensed Clinical Therapists we are certified in TMH.  The video platform we use is confidential, and HIPAA compliant.     

Expands Access and Saves Time:

TMH places services within reach of clients wherever they are located. As clinical therapists now serving clients over long distances, videoconferencing can involve just a few seconds it takes to walk to one’s computer.  This innovative counseling model eliminates a client’s need for transportation, and any travel-related costs.  TMH also can make it easier for our clients to work appointments into their schedules.

Shortens Delays:

TMH removes many of the barriers that lead to long waits to see your therapist. A client in North Georgia no longer has to choose from a short list of clinical therapists. She/he may choose to work remotely with a clinical therapist many miles away. In addition to expanded options statewide, provider lists will grow as more states loosen geographic restrictions.

Eases Stigma:

For clients concerned about appearing publicly at a clinical therapist’s office, working with clinical therapists from home via teleconferencing, or by phone, can ease anxieties and promote acceptance of treatment.

Gets Results:

Research continues to affirm the efficacy of TMH services, with studies showing that videoconferencing can be as effective as face-to-face sessions. TMH increases provider options and a multitude of convenient technological choices. TMH is a growing and effective alternative for those delivering and receiving clinical services.

Weight Loss/Management

Oh no, not another weight loss gimmick! People, please… haven’t you realized yet that weight is the glue that holds the emotions together? You must work on your thoughts and emotions first. When you’re picking up that piece of pie, candy, or extra helping….it’s not jumping into your hand saying “eat me”. You must stop and think AND then decide whether to pick up that food item you really don’t need. Hypnosis helps you to stop, think, and be aware of what’s better for you. Is it difficult? No, the difficulty melts away when you discover how truly capable you are of simply looking at the food item, smiling, and easily saying…. “No, thank you”. Individual and group sessions available.
