Here is a little about my background as a hypnotist. You will find an article the Barrington Times did on me by clicking here.
First, I am a board certified hypnotist who has practiced hypnosis and hypnotherapy for over 25 years (Rhode Island and Massachusetts) since 1998. My business is helping people bring new possibilities into reality.
My certification is by a national association (The National Guild of Hypnotists). It requires ongoing education and adherence to a rigorous ethical standard.
I have an
undergraduate degree in psychology (Hofstra University, 1970)
and a MA in Anglo-Irish Studies (University College, Dublin,
Eire, 1971) and am a member of Rhode Island Mensa.
