The reason is very straight-forward.
The utilization of Hypnosis & Self-hypnosis as therapeutic tools usually helps clients & patients achieve their therapeutic and personal life goals much more effectively, efficiently and successfully.
Often clients who have been in therapy for years with traditional talk therapies, tell me after just a few sessions they learned about themselves and benefited more than from months (and sometimes years) of therapy – this is no exaggeration.
My clients enjoy and value the process as being interesting, creative, interactive, alive, satisfying and often very enjoyable.
Clients often say that their experience in hypnosis is the most relaxed they have ever felt in their entire lives.
They are happy and so am I.
Of Course, one should only be treated with hypnosis by someone who is expertly trained, highly qualified and very experienced.
Only a person who is licensed specifically to use hypnosis in specific areas of expertise and specialization is permitted by law to utilize hypnosis in treatment or to teach hypnosis and self-hypnosis.
I am happy to let you know that …
I have successfully specialized in the use of Hypnosis for thirty-six years.
- I am licensed in Israel to use Hypnosis – both as a Licensed Clinical and Medical Psychologist.
- I have been licensed in the U.S. since 1981 to use hypnosis and to train therapists in the use of hypnosis..
- I taught Hypnosis at Antioch University Graduate School of Psychology.
- My Doctoral Internship and Research was in the use of Hypnosis, at UCLA-Santa Monica Hospital.
- I have thousands of hours of clinical experience.
- I taught self-hypnosis to hundreds of people, including physicians and therapists..
- I have many recommendations from physicians, obstetricians, gynecologists, surgeons, gastro-enterologists, psychologists, and psychiatrists, etc.
- I even was invited to give a lecture on Hypnosis at the 12th International Conference on Hypnosis in Jerusalem, 1992, by the former Israeli director of hypnosis services.
The truth is that there is no clear agreement among professionals what hypnosis actually is. What is more clear is that hypnosis effects a person’s ability positively to control and gain mastery over physiological, cognitive, and emotional processes and experiences.
- Hypnosis is a wonderful diagnostic tool
- Hypnosis facilitates the ability to remember experiences from the past.

Self-Hypnosis is used to create positive feelings, habits and patterns of thought and behavior.
Self-Hypnosis is a wonderful way to relax, increase motivation and creativity.
Self-Hypnosis can be used to help a person overcome many psychological and medical dificulties
Hypnosis is a treatment modality that I utilize, only when it is both appropriate for a given patient and presenting problem, and requested by the patient with his/her understanding and written consent.
Many medical conditions are either partially caused by, or maintained by, high levels of psychological, emotional, and physiological stress. When a human being experiences prolonged high levels of stress, various bodily functions begin to malfunction, particularly the body’s immune system, and often pain results, as well.
Hypnosis is an excellent, efficient, and effective way to reduce stress and the accompanying harm that it causes.
Learning how to use self-regulation techniques of mind-body medicine, such as hypnosis, can decrease need for and dependence upon medications which usually have negative emotional and/or physiological side effects. Successful self-regulation also tends to increase one’s self esteem and self confidence, and can reduce anxiety, fear, and depression.
I want to give my patients the best treatment I can, and create the best treatment strategy for each patient. To do this, it is important for me to have the necessary information regarding their condition, medical history, and past and concurrent treatment, with other health professionals. I, therefore, request consultation with my patients’ medical doctors, when I treat them for medical or psychiatric diagnoses, or at least a copy of their medical report, so that I can offer the best services possible.
At times hypnosis is not recommended or appropriate for a particular patient. Whether hypnosis is utilized in the treatment of my patients is determined after consultation and evaluation of the patient, the specific issues presented, the preference of the patient, and the patient’s medical history.
Written consent is required in order for me to utilize hypnosis in treatment.
I am careful to abide by all the pertinent laws of the Israel Ministry of Health and Jewish Halacha, as well as all ethical considerations.
