  •  “I would just like to say that being hypnotized by Joan Ann was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I went to her to get help with over eating. I wanted to be free from constantly over eating. I have tried so many approaches over the years and nothing has helped like hypnosis. After just one session I feel more energy, I am calmer and more relaxed. When the craving to eat comes and I am not physically hungry, I pause and check in to see what I am feeling then I take care of the need in a positive way. The book named “The Secret Language of Feelings” that she gives to her clients helped me to identify my feelings and respond more appropriately. I feel so much freedom. “  kim
  • Joan Ann hypnotized me four weeks ago to stop eating from 7 pm-7am. I have lost three pounds and have no urges to snack, something I have done for years. Thank you so much. Al

5-PATH Hypnosis


As a 5-PATH hypnotist ( 5 Phase Advanced Transformational Hypnosis) I offer you the most modern techniques and processes available, arranged in such a way as to increase the effectiveness and reliability of outcome. Commitment to the process allows opportunity for more permanent change to accomplish the goals set by each client. 


What is 5-PATH®? Some hypnotherapists and hypnotists have undergone advanced hypnosis training and certification in 5-PATH® Hypnotherapy. These hypnosis professionals are among some of the most advanced hypnotherapists with whom you can work. Training and certification in 5-PATH® Hypnotherapy allows the hypnotist to go far beyond what most hypnotists can do in a hypnosis session. Here is a quick outline of how highly trained hypnosis professionals differentiate themselves from others:

· You will receive a comprehensive "pre-talk" in which you will learn about 5-PATH Hypnosis and 7th Path Self-Hypnosis which is included free with your 4 session package. ($350. value)

· You will interact with me  during the "pre-hypnosis interview" as I learn  what your goals are and how best to fascilitate achievement of those goals. 

· I have been trained to utilize the appropriate level of hypnosis  essential for the kind of work we will be doing together. This will be done with covert and overt testing. The covert testing is done  so that I  will know that you are at the appropriate level of hypnosis to create change. You probably will not notice this testing being done. Once that has been accomplished I will do overt testing to provide you with some objective evidence that you were hypnotized.

· Your hypnotherapist will customize each session for you. 5-PATH® hypnotherapists know how to match the right inductions, deepening techniques, suggestions and other techniques to each client for maximum results.

We will work together as a team as we go through the process of neutralizing any old limiting beliefs, emotions or habits that have caused you to seek help.  5-PATH® Hypnotherapists have been trained to find the actual cause(s) of the problem(s)  rather than just treating the symptoms.  This enables our clients to be very successful and experience long term and even permanent results.

You can be assured that your hypnosis experience is completely professional and confidential.
