About Brian

I am a hypnoguru – I support my clients as they reach for mental, physical and spiritual wellness. My skills are not just practical – I have a good understanding of the psychology and psychic principles at play in mental wellness. Those insights have been published as a resource for my peers. See my Services page for thumbnails regarding specific therapies.

Every journey into healing and strength involves humor, patience and hope. Hypnosis Rising offers a warm and welcoming environment to unleash those qualities. I’m not interested in demonstrations of hypnotic skill or psychological control. Each session is about you, your journey, and promotes your sense of accomplishment.

All hypnotherapy rests upon a simple foundation – establishing trust at a deep organic level that you know what is best for you and can act upon that knowledge. Once that is known, resistance decreases, and you’ll find yourself reaching out to grasp change with hope and enthusiasm. My talent is in sifting through the pieces of your life to help you to focus your attention where it matters most.

As a Kappasinian practitioner, I construct therapies based upon your personal goals and needs, using suggestions that reflect your optimum learning style. Change will happen immediately, and solutions will arrive quickly.

As do all true healers, I love people unconditionally. That commitment – combined with long life experience and study – yields intuition and wisdom that opens doors to healing.

Upon mastering the skill of hypnosis, I realized that I had been hypnotizing people on dance floors for years. Joy seems to be the most hypnotic experience we know. My joy is rooted in Christian faith, justified in my book “The Soul Comes First.” While conversant in other traditions (including Buddhism and Islam), I credit my therapeutic intuition to the Holy Spirit.
