Jason is a fantastic hypnotherapist, life coach and career coach. He and his unique skillset helped me overcome difficult challenges in a relatively short period of time. He is intentional, thoughtful, practical, and honored me and my situation and background. I wholeheartedly recommend Jason to anyone who is truly wanting to improve their quality of life. More...

Hypnotherapy

I experienced extreme trauma in February 2020. I lost my husband very suddenly with 2 babies and a teenager to raise alone. There were other issues in the mix that mitigated things as well. I was devastated and completely lost in my grief. I'm telling my personal issues because I want to best illustrate my situation. It was dire. I very soon realized I needed professional help. Though I was still functioning, I felt like a ticking timebomb. I attempted traditional therapy, and though useful to many, it was not for me. My goals were beyond traditional therapy's reach. I needed to find myself again, and divert my emotional response to the trauma, accept it, and allow myself to heal without guilt. I'd researched hypnotherapy before, and felt it would be helpful. I needed my mind to be 'conditioned' to manifest my desired result. I needed to let go. This is when I found Jason.
Upon our first conversation, I knew our sessions would change my life. This may sound cheesy, but I mean it sincerely. I explained what my goals were, and Jason was perfectly in tune. Actually more than I then realized. Our first session literally opened my eyes, as in, my eyes widened and haven't gone back since. It felt like I had awaken from a hibernation. I'm not joking. With each session, my mind unlocked more and more; allowing me to prioritize myself again, make better decisions, reach more goals, and better understand the motivation behind my actions. Jason has changed my life, and I am forever thankful. It is worth it, at the very leas, to see if his coaching and therapy would be good for you. It was most definitely a great move for me. If' you're reading this, you may be in place of turmoil. If so, there is a way out, and I completely recommend Jason.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Jason from village hypnotherapy. We have both smoked for a very long time we are amazed at the results. Jason made us comfortable and relaxed. He also gave us some tips to help me with some pain I have been having. We highly recommend Jason at village hypnotherapy More...

Hypnotherapy

This was a really positive experience for me. I was nervous about being hypnotized by someone I have never met, on the other side of the country, but Jason made me feel at ease right away and it was an all around nice experience. He helped me with some of my phobia anxiety, and though I still haven't gone for the procedure I am most scared of, I think it will be a less harrowing experience after Jason's help. More...

I am so glad Jason reached out to me. I was at my end with theses dogs barking and had no idea what to do anymore. I took a shot on the internet and to my surprise there was hope. After talking with Jason and trying hypnotherapy for the first time I felt relief shortly after. very comforting and relaxing. I didn't feel alone anymore either with this issue. I feel a great weight has been lifted that had been there for awhile. Thank you so much Jason. More...

It was a very positive and inviting atmosphere and I was able to go at my own pace. Great guy and incredible results! I highly recommend Jason for anyone struggling with anxiety, phobias, smoking, any problem you can think of honestly. Thanks again! More...

Hypnotherapy

A confluence of terrible events including the entirely unexpected death of my beloved husband and the beginning of the Covid 19 Pandemic beginning six months later resulted in a black fog of depression enveloping me. I was no stranger to depression and in fact had been managing it pretty well for years.
But I found myself mired in it again. I sought out Hypnotheray for the first time in my life.
Having worked with two excellent psychotherapists many years ago I had a good grasp of my issues and I understood where they came from. That work had served me well but I had no need to revisit it.
What I desperately needed was to
start making art again, take care of my physical self better, specifically exercising regularly and
losing weight. Searching online, I found Jason Akel. Jason is matter of fact and knowledgeable. He is also warm and personable. After an initial consultation I began to work with him on FaceTime. I live in the Northeast and Jason lives in the Bay Area. Neither the geographic distance nor my initial fears about not “knowing how” to participate in Hypnotheray turned out to matter. After 5 fascinating sessions I am making significant progress in all three of my goals. I unreservedly recommend Jason

2020 presented itself with so many challenges, one of them being my journey to healthier and better me, after being diagnosed with an 'incurable' auto-immune skin issue. I radically decided that throwing out my vices. Initially, I wasn't sure about the outcome of my sessions with Jason, especially since I was unsure about virtual hypnotherapy. However, I also didn't think quitting my marijuana vaping habit was something I could do without a bit of help. It's been three weeks since my initial quit day, and I'm excited to say I have haven't vaped at all. I am free and will continue living my life as a non-vaper. It's been so effective that I am able to get through an incredibly stressful workday and 45+hr work week, while raising a 15 month old without needing to take constant puffs.Jason helped me break the habit with simple but effective tasks leading up to the therapy session. He then helps your subconscious teach you that it is really up to you to make a change! Jason was so kind to give me the tools for self-hypnosis, should I need a quick break from my every day stressors. More...

Hypnotherapy

I can not recommend a more helpful, most attentive therapist. This was truly my last resort in solving my issue with my anxiety and panic attacks. Jason made the whole experience very simple to understand. He is very caring and very patient. He also helped me with making a healthier lifestyle for myself. He would argue I did it myself but without his push I wouldn’t be as happy as I am now. I will always recommend Village Hypnotherapy for anyone looking to help make a permanent change in their life More...

Hypnotherapy

Finding Jason Akel and Village Hypnotherapy has been the one good thing in this horrible year! In finding hypnotherapy i feel like I've been connected to a part of myself long buried under negative self talk, excessive worry and anxiety. I'm starting to find the essence of myself again, and to gain skill with tools like guided meditation to calm me when anxiety threatens to take over.

I was very impressed with Jason's ability to explain what hypnotherapy was, and ease my fears about it. I had always been curious but my only experience with it was at fairs, or things I'd seen on television. My mother had quit smoking through hypnotherapy years ago and when the pandemic hit and many of my fears and anxieties were feeling out of control, I reached out, and i'm SO glad I did. I look forward to seeing where this process takes me, and am grateful to have found it immensely helpful in my journey to regain balance and tap into my dormant creativity!

Q&As

I get enormous satisfaction in giving you more than you came to me for. We certainly will address your immediate concerns, but we can also clean out "old cobwebs" that may be holding you back. Tesla-quality service (or Ferrari if you prefer), not just a basic mental tune-up.

Helping clients achieve positive, lasting change is a real thrill, and I'm great at it! For hypnotherapy sessions, I'll also teach you self-hypnosis so you can continue using the skill after we've achieved your goals.

Please read my reviews. I am fully invested in your complete success. Reviews: https://www.villagehypnotherapy.com/client-reviews

Absolutely. Most of my clients are online these days via secure Zoom or Google Meet. For hypnotherapy, I find online to be more effective than in-person...you are in the comfort of your own place and there's an extra sense of privacy since I don't live in your community. Of course, everything is strictly confidential.

Online services via Zoom or Google Meet. In-person sessions in the San Francisco Bay Area are run socially distanced and outdoors. Jason has already been vaccinated.
