I use hypnosis not only as a cure but as a means of
establishing a favorable climate in which to learn how to heal yourself.
Hypnotherapist Lisa C. Anthony: I hold a Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling, with a minor in biology. I am an a ACHE certified hypnotherapist and a Licensed Mental Health Therapist. I attended The Hypnotherapy Academy of America in New Mexico. I was a member of Psi Chi Honors Society in Psychology. I am also listed in Psychology Today. I worked full time as a Hypnotherapist/Grief and Trauma Specialist at a substance abuse treatment center for the past 6 years. I have extensive experience working with survivors of sexual trauma and abuse. I have additional training in Rapid Resolution Therapy with Jon Connelly. I trained in past life regression therapy with Dr. Brian Weiss at the Omega Institute in New York. I have a passion for women’s empowerment. I facilitate self-esteem building and anxiety management, with a focus on cognitive behavioral techniques and Ancient eastern holistic approaches. I believe in meeting the client where they are therapeutically and working as a team in collaboration with the client. My approach emphasizes processing and healing the past so that clients can move forward and rebuild their lives from a place of healing and freedom. My belief is that it is not just a career but my life’s purpose to use the tools I have learned on my own journey of transformation to help others transform their lives. My reward is in witnessing these transformations.

Someone I loved once gave me
a box full of darkness.
It took me years to understand
that this too, was a gift.
I worked as a grief and trauma specialist, using hypnotherapy for 6 years. I utilize hypnotherapy to treat multiple traumas including victims of sexual assault, adult victims of childhood abuse, domestic violence, combat trauma, traumatic grief and grief. I use hypnosis to treat anxiety, depression and chronic pain, as well. I use traditional hypnosis techniques of regression therapy, parts therapy and inner wisdom integration. I offer hypnosis sessions to give positive suggestions and help improve self-esteem. I can combine these traditional therapies with Tranquility Lounge therapies to create a very powerful form of hypnosis; I call Harmonial Hypnotherapy
Is a great tool for healing. It is a brief therapy and generally requires fewer sessions than standard talk therapies. This is due to the fact that hypnotherapy is performed while the client is in a relaxed state and therefore at a deeper level of consciousness. Hypnotherapy can clear up issues in as little as one to three sessions.
Our minds store both positive and negative memories and thoughts. These are the result of both good and bad memories and experiences we have had throughout our lives. Some memories are stored at a conscious level. These are memories that we are aware of. The next level of the mind is the gatekeeper. The gatekeeper decides which information will cross over into the next layer, referred to as the subconscious mind. This is where positive and negative memories are stored. The third level is called the superconscious mind. Very few people get to that level, Buddha, for example. This is self actualization.
There are two types of sessions in hypnosis. In one type of session, negative experiences are pulled up into the conscious mind while patient is in a relaxed state so that they can be processed. In the second type of session, positive affirmations are given to the client while in a relaxed state. This is for the purpose of putting positive thoughts into the mind so that these thoughts outweigh the negative thoughts. This is referred to as suggestion therapy.
How Does Hypnosis Work?
During hypnosis, your body relaxes and your thoughts become more focused. Like other relaxation techniques, hypnosis lowers blood pressure and heart rate, and changes certain types of brain wave activity. In this relaxed state, you will feel at ease physically yet fully awake mentally, and you may be highly responsive to suggestion. Your conscious mind becomes less alert and your subconscious mind becomes more focused.
There are several stages of hypnosis:
- Reframing the problem
- Becoming relaxed, then absorbed (deeply engaged in the words or images presented by a hypnotherapist)
- Dissociating (letting go of critical thoughts)
- Responding (complying with a hypnotherapist’s suggestions)
- Returning to usual awareness
