 A fellow athlete suggested I meet with John Sahakian to discuss and improve my race strategies. As a triathlete, I rely on mental and emotional strength as well as physical endurance. At some point over the past few years I developed a fear of open water swimming. John spent the first session with me to assess my goals and learn what I hoped to accomplish in this year of racing. We then spent a few additional sessions working through pre-race relaxation exercises, open water swim strategies, and visualization techniques. This race season has proven to be my best so far. I just competed in the Hawaii 70.3 Ironman and achieved a PR by taking 15 min off my 1.2 mile swim time. THAT’S HUGE !!! I really owe that accomplishment to John. He helped me achieve my goals ten-fold. I have also used the discovered techniques in other aspects of my life. John Sahakian, C,Ht. is THE therapist and I recommend him highly. Stacy T. Yelp.com,

 I came to John the first time – smoking, drinking, stressed and ragged. Mama if you could see me now. Two years later – I’m smokeless, seldom drinker, calm and together. I’m so grateful for not only the work in the office, but teaching me the tools to do what I need to do several times a day, and keep it all together in a healthy way. Full of gratitude for the work that he does and the person that he is. Still going back once or twice a month to keep on track and hear about strategies that I can incorporate into my current lifestyle. Love. Renee H. Yelp

 I saw John Sahakian with the hope that he could help me deal with a specific phobia. He creates a safe and supportive environment and is a very rational, intelligent and warm person. The process felt organic and blew away any pre-conceived notion I may have had about hypnotherapy. My work with John helped me over a major hurdle. I would refer him highly. K.S. J K. Yelp.com,

 John Sahakian C.Ht. is a skilled therapist. I contacted him, because I hoped hypnotherapy would help me with stress related issues (anxiety, depression). I felt an immediate improvement after the first session and each session that followed builds on the previous. I’ve been to other therapists in the past, but no one has helped me as quickly and effectively. He’s helping me make important changes in my life and the result is pretty amazing. If there’s anything in your life you want to improve, I highly recommend you go see him!

What is Hypnotherapy?

"Hypnotherapy" begins the moment we first connect and engage in a dialogue. My goal is to create more openess psychologically toward self-empowerment and control. A positive life experience starts with how we perceive that experience. From the moment I become aware of your presenting issue I go to work on influencing your thought processes. This is not about any form of mind control. It's about you becoming liberated from self-limiting beliefs. The process starts long before you're ever hypnotized or put another way, guided into a "suggestible" state.

The subconscious mind is considered to be the source or root of many of our behaviors, emotions, attitudes and choices. During hypnotherapy, the moment the session begins the aim is to encourage positive change to enhance your life. Hypnosis can be a powerful tool for accessing the subconscious mind and creating dramatic life improvements. Using simple hypnotic techniques, you are guided into an altered state of awareness most find exceptionally relaxing. Based on the preceding cognitive discussion, suggestions are given in conjunction with imagery to influence your inner voice and the images you spontaneously produce.

Hypnotherapy can help you with the following…


•Agoraphobia •Addiction
•Anxiety/worry •Bruxism (teeth grinding at night)
•Childbirthing (painless) •Confidence/self esteem
•Exam nerves •Family problems
•Motivation problems •Nail Biting
•Nervousness •Pain control
