I went to see Christian after my wife had a successful outcome in managing a back pain issue. I had more existential concerns: worries about aging and mortality, wanting to feel more at one with the universe and less of an isolated self. The results have been subtle but profound: I feel more peaceful, more present to my immediate environment, and accepting of my aging body. I now have a routine practice to help maintain this state of being on my own for which I am very grateful. More...

I was in a funk for quite some time before I went to see Christian. I was feeling empty & withdrawn, lacking motivation to do simple day to day tasks. I didn't enjoy doing things I normally liked to do, I wasn't being very social with my friends, I wasn't seeing my family as often as I felt I should, I wasn't committed to my diet & exercise plans, I was coasting by at work, I was wasting way too much time on social media, & I wasn't giving my marriage the attention it deserved. I wanted to change all of this, but I felt helpless to do so on my own. After one of my friends saw Christian & had amazing results, I decided to give hypnosis a try. After meeting Christian for a consultation, I committed to 5 hypnotherapy sessions with him. Christian is kind, attentive, nonjudgmental, understanding, & was confident he could help me. After our first hypnotherapy session I started noticing results. I went home & immediately threw away some junk food I never would have wasted before & I joined a new gym. Each session was different than the last & I always left hypnosis feeling refreshed & wanting to do the things I was previously putting off or procrastinating on. Over the course of 4 weeks with Christian, I felt a positive shift in my mindset...I didn't want to miss my workouts, I didn't want to eat things that weren't good for me, I wanted to spend time with my friends & family, I deleted social media apps from my phone, I was more productive in my work, & I craved & created quality time with my husband. In short, I started to feel like myself again. Christian also taught me how to do self hypnosis & that has been amazing when I go to bed at night. It allows me to fall asleep faster & to fall asleep with positive thoughts. Hypnosis can definitely get you on the right path to achieving your goals/target behaviors. I am not completely out of my funk, but I do believe Christian has helped me begin to get out of it & I will most likely go back from time to time for a "tune-up" with Christian. I recommend him to anyone, especially if you are a member of the LGBT community...he offers a safe space for everyone. More...

Christian made the whole experience effortless and interesting in a calm and supportive setting. It was fascinating to see what my subconscious mind revealed. I highly recommend his services to anyone who wants to move beyond their own limitations. More...

I expected to lose weight through hypnotherapy with Mr. Skoorsmith but I certainly didn’t expect all of the other positive effects that his therapy provided. His hypnosis approach through positive thinking and holistic healing really made my diet and weight loss journey not only possible but enjoyable, and realistically manageable. By approaching weight loss with a positive mindset, it really allowed me to have a positive outlook on all other parts of life such as my work, my stress, my interpersonal relationships and many more. Basically, it seems as if his methods were that if you needed to make a positive change in one aspect of your life you have to start with a clean slate and make positive chances in other parts ofyour life as well as they may all be interconnected with one another. So through this type of guidance on mindset, I achieved 13% weight loss and brought down my body fat percentage to 2.75%. My abs are back, and I was able avoid several unhealthy food items that I often gave into temptation with. Through Mr. Skoorsmith’s therapy, I was emotionally removed from those unhealthy yet deceivingly delicious food items. Nonetheless, I never regretted not being able to enjoy them as decadently as I used to. The timing for my weight loss was actually perfect in preparation for the holidays. While food is in abundance during such times, my mindset of eating more than I should was no longer my habit thanks to Mr. Skoorsmith’s hypnotherapy. I highly recommend seeing Mr. Skoorsmith to see his approach in helping you achieve certain life goals. More...

I initially came to Christian more out of curiosity than conviction that hypnosis would work for me. After a personal trauma that I had struggled to move through for some time, Christian surprised me. In only a month, hypnosis has reduced my anxiety levels, stopped reoccurring nightmares and enabled me to recognize and let go of the root cause of issue. Christian is scientific in his method and compassionate in his approach. Highly recommended. More...

I went to see Christian because I had to speak in public and the thought of it made me extremely nervous. Working with him helped with my fear of public speaking and my anxiety in general. I have also found that I am able to stay more mindful and focused. More...

Since I did hypnosis with Christian I've been able to gain a much better understanding of who I am as an individual and why I behave in a certain way. As a result, I am now more confident of who I am. I appreciate and value life much more. I am no longer reckless and have gained self-control to minimize destructive behavior. I've gained much more understanding of myself which is great to cure my insomnia. I highly recommend Christian to anyone who is need of a self-tuneup! More...

I cannot say enough about what a kind man Christian is, and how welcoming he is to people of all sorts of backgrounds and walks of life. I’ve known him and his family many years, and he truly thrives off helping people to improve their lives. More...

Christian is really amazing and very experienced and extremely knowledgeable in both Hypnosis and instruction on Self Hypnosis. I learned a lot about myself and the 5 session experience was so elevating for me personally, as I feel much more in control of my decision making and life. Whatever issues you face or are trying to correct in your life, Christian can help you. Also, you feel so relaxed and peaceful after Hypnosis. It's very "awakening". I 100% recommend Christian. As an added bonus, he is not judgemental, just helpful, so you don't have to feel embarrassed by whatever you are trying to overcome! More...

I feel so lucky and grateful to have run into Christian Skoorsmith in Arizona. Even though he was technically on vacation, he was very happy to help me overcome the anxiety and PTSD I’d been struggling with. It is amazing how much he helped me in just three sessions of hypnotherapy. My life is better, my anxiety levels have already noticeably improved and I am excited to explore this new, free-er me. And it’s only been three days since my first session. I cannot say enough about what a kind man Christian is, and how welcoming he is to people of all sorts of backgrounds and walks of life. I’ve known him and his family many years, and he truly thrives off helping people to improve their lives. More...

Since starting hypnosis with Christian, many things have improved in my life. I came for weight loss and that was a 100% success! Other things that happened: I was able to let go of old unproductive behaviors and thoughts. Things that I did not know were affecting my life came to light and were dealt with. My productivity at work has increased. My relationships with those I love and care for have become easier. The main thing is a better person has come out of the sessions. I would recommend Christian to anyone that is in need of gain of focus, weight loss, or ridding oneself of that nagging internal voice that holds one down. I have truly enjoyed my time and plan to come back in the future if I ever need it! More...

Somewhat on a whim I decided to book an appointment with the idea that perhaps hypnotism would help me set some good habits and break a few bad. The biggest goal I had was relaxing in the evenings and leaving work behind me, trying to be present and not have my mind always wandering back to my work and financial pressure. I wanted to try to learn how to set aside my worries and enjoy my time with my daughter rather than my mind always being preoccupied. I found Christian to be very kind, welcoming and professional. I have learned so much about the brain and how little we use of it and how much I was stuck in my critical thinking section. Christian has helped me to be more relaxed and more present. I've visited him several times and plan to go again. I think it takes a couple visits to break a bad habit. My next goal is to make exercise part of my regular routine. The state of hypnosis is very relaxing and in fact, I have found myself not wanting the session to end. Now I'm trying to encourage my partner to go to stop biting his finger nails. I definitely highly recommend Christian Skoorsmith. Whether you want to start a good habit, break a bad, or just learn some relaxation techniques, I think this is a good way to go about it. More...

I was looking for a hypnotherapist because I wanted to achieve better mastery of finding calmness in my life, and not have any particular expectations. I experienced profound relief from long-standing issues and perceptions that I had no idea were impacting my life in huge ways. I learned tools to easily fall asleep. Additionally each session was so incredibly and deeply relaxing – I still felt relaxed the next day! More...

Q&A

I love helping people be better people. Honestly, I am in awe of the power of the subconscious mind and the tools at my disposal, and I am moved by the transformations I see taking place in my office every day.

I have been in a helping profession for my entire adult life. When I realized the power of hypnosis and how much I enjoyed it, it seemed natural to open a small private practice. Over the years it has grown, through client success and referrals, and expanded to a full-time job (how lucky am I?!) which includes private hypnosis sessions, group sessions, and teaching hypnosis and self-hypnosis to the South and West Seattle, White Center, Burien, Tukwila, and Renton communities.

I am one of the most highly trained hypnotists in the Puget Sound region, and have an extraordinary success rate. But don’t judge me on that - I offer a free in-person consultation so we can better understand each other, I can tell you more about the kind of hypnosis I do, and we can get a feel for whether we are a good fit to work together (important when doing hypnosis). No charge, no obligation. **Please CONTACT ME DIRECTLY at christian(at)wholehealth(dot)today or two-zero-six four-five-seven nine-two-seven-five.**

Services

Certified in Hypnosis and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Work with PTSD requires a referral from a licensed provider (Doctor, Psychologist, Psychiatrist, LMHC, etc), and ideally I would be part of a team supporting an individual. I have the credentials, experience, training, and tools to help individuals manage stress and neutralize the root issues at play in PTSD.

Certified in Hypnosis with Transgender Clients I am an affirming, safe, positive place for transgender individuals (and those that love them) to seek informed, confidential, competent hypnotherapy. There isn’t necessarily any issue that is exclusive to the transgender community, but some issues are more prevalent (e.g., gender & body dysphoria, pronouns, etc.). I am cis-gender (non-conforming), and at least one child of mine is trans. I am familiar with many aspects of the transgender experience (from an allied-but-outsider perspective), so you don’t have to “educate” me about basic phenomena (e.g., pronouns, “dead names”, etc.) and we can go right to doing the work you want to do. (Read a recent blog post on pain and hypnosis at https://www.wholehealth.today/single-post/2018/07/16/Pain-Management-Hypnosis.)

I love to help smokers quit. (And I’m really good at it.) What I love most is that every smoker comes in thinking that it is really difficult to quit smoking. I’m their last resort. Then, when they quit smoking, and it was easier than they thought it would be, they are true believers in hypnosis! Once a smoker quits smoking, there isn’t anything they can’t do!

Certified Specialist in Hypnosis and Tinnitus Tinnitus (a “ringing” in one’s ears) is increasingly common. Once a physiological cause or correction has been ruled out, hypnosis can help people diminish the volume and severity of tinnitus, as well as increase one’s comfort level with the phenomenon.

Certified in Five-Phase Advanced Transformational Hypnosis We are often held back by something inside ourselves. Sometimes we’re conscious of what it is, sometimes we have an inkling what it might be, and sometimes we have no idea why we sabotage ourselves, or can’t get past something, can’t let go of an old relationship, can’t overcome a fear or phobia, can’t stop thinking poorly about ourselves... whatever the challenge is. Hypnosis (done with a properly trained professional) can be a powerful tool for personal transformation.

Whether it is losing weight, stopping gambling, stopping lying, having more confidence, public speaking, overcoming a fear or phobia, giving up a “too-much” behavior, sleeping better, having more focus, procrastinating less, being a better relationship partner, or a host of other challenges, hypnosis is a powerful tool for achieving lasting change quickly. Let’s talk about what you want to accomplish!
