Westside Hypnotherapy

Los Angeles

‘19 Certificate of Excellence

Westside Hypnotherapy is the premiere hypnotherapy practice for residents of the Los Angeles area. Message from Jake Rubin, MA, Board Certified Hypnotherapist: You're reading this because you want to change something or improve something in your life. You've tried to deal with it on your own or perhaps even with other professional help, but for whatever reason it's just not working. You have the desire, but the desire just doesn't seem to be enough. Perhaps you need to stop a bad habit like smoking or procrastinating; or start a good habit, like going to the gym, eating better or being more focused. Perhaps you have too much stress, anxiety, or pain in your life and it's just eating you alive. ​ Hypnosis can change this. You see, no matter how hard you work with your conscious mind to try to improve these or any other issues, until you change the subconscious programming that, like a computer, runs your life, it will be nearly impossible for you to make lasting changes. This is where hypnosis comes in. ​ Hypnotherapy gets to the root of the issues so you make lasting changes. Contact me today for a complimentary 20 minute phone consultation to find out more about how hypnotherapy can help you.

This will vary according to the level of experience and training that the hypnotherapist holds.

Firstly, you'll have a conversation with your therapist to discuss what you hope to achieve and agree on what methods your therapist will use. Afterwards, the hypnotherapist may lead you into a deeply relaxed state using agreed methods to help you towards your goals. For example, suggesting that you don't want to carry out a certain habit gradually bring you out of the trance.

You are fully in control when under hypnosis and don't have to take on the therapist's suggestions if you don't want to. If necessary, you can bring yourself out of the hypnotic state. Most people expect to be put to sleep or to forget what happened afterwards but the opposite is true. You're fully aware the whole time of what is happening.

This is dependent on both your hypnotherapist and your circumstances. One-off services such as smoking cessation or gastric band hypnotherapy can last around two hours, while a general hypnotherapy session will usually take about an hour.

The duration of therapy will really be dependent on your circumstances and issues. Some people may require a longer-term approach with regular weekly sessions. Your hypnotherapist will let you know how many sessions they feel you might need when you start therapy and will be flexible when it comes to decreasing or extending the number of sessions according to your progress and needs.

There are currently no guidelines in place stipulating the training and qualifications a hypnotherapist must have in order to practice. Industry guidelines recommend that individuals should have completed at least an appropriate diploma or have completed a course that involved a minimum of 450 learning hours, of which 120 hours must have been face-to-face.

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their profile page on Bark and Bark can show you reviews from past customers who have used their hypnotherapy services.

Hypnotherapy has repeatedly and consistently helped patients with a whole host of issues. It can help with anxiety, depression, anxiety, PTSD, obesity, addictions, fear of flying, public speaking, stopping smoking, insomnia, weight loss amongst others. When combined with methods such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), valuable healing work can begin as quickly as one or two sessions.

You might be surprised to hear that hypnotherapy can be delivered remotely over the phone, through an online video chat platform, or with pre-recorded sessions sent by email.
