The mission of Flagstaff Hypnotherapy is to give the client the tools to use the power of their mind to live the life they want to live.
Flagstaff Hypnotherapy opened in 2007 by Don Berlyn, PT, Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist.
Although the practice is namedFlagstaff Hypnotherapy, hypnosis is only one of the techniques utilized to assist clients in achieving their goals. Other techniques include a variety of visualization, breathing, focused attention, analysis and practical recommendations.
The course of the client and Don working together can be as brief as one session working on a single well defined goal or over an extended period of time addressing multiple issues as they come up and reinforcement as specific challenges present themselves. The longer term relationships can be like "life coaching" and are conducted with office visits and by phone, texts or email. Communication outside of the office is free unless specifically arranged as formal session.
The first session is typically:
an extensive exploration of the client's issue/s, history, goals and blocks.
an in-depth explanation of the various techniques available to address the client's goals.
mutual development of a plan, including which techniques and suggestions will be utilized.
instruction and practice in the selected techniques, then hypnotic trance, review and homework.
Clients always leave the first session with easy techniques to use the power of their minds to feel the way they choose. Subsequent appointments are scheduled based on the client's request. In between sessions, the client practices techniques including going into deep relaxation/trance.
Testimonial fromKami Richardson: "I called Don on a Sunday not expecting him to pick up. I had seen just about every counselor, therapist, psychologist and mental health physician you can think of in my lifetime and hypnotherapy had honestly never crossed my mind until recently. I was in a very low, very dark place and was just expecting to leave a voice mail. This kind, compassionate man spent 2 hours on the phone with me trying to calm me and telling me that he could help me. Three days later I’m in his office and He’s asking me questions about my life and habits and what’s really affecting my life negatively. He then puts me into these mini trances and I honestly don’t remember what he said during my calm state but two days later, I suddenly had the mental fortitude to help MYSELF! As a 33 year old married woman, I never thought I’d be able to develop the self discipline to start changing the habits that have made my life a living hell. Today was session two and I’m already feeling more reinforcement and more positive I can make changes that will stick with me for a long time. Don literally saved my life, bless this man."
