Learning to Retrain your Brain with Hypnosis

The goal of our approach is to teach you to retrain your brain to recover your peace of mind, inner-strength, emotional balance, motivation, drive, solidity and stability. Learning these powerful techniques enables you to become rapidly self-sufficient, driven and empowered.

Working in Cooperation with the Medical Field

As clinical hypnotherapists, we do not independently work with medical conditions, diagnose, treat or prescribe. We do not practice psychotherapy, we teach and train our clients how to shift limiting beliefs, reach their goals and enhance their well being using hypnotic techniques.

We only assist with diagnosed physical, mental and emotional symptoms with the authorization and under the supervision of medical doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurse practitioners. Please note we do require a physician’s authorization before scheduling sessions and work only under physician guidance. Working in close cooperation with your medical team enables us to ensure your progress in an optimal manner.

Consultations and Sessions

Due to the increasing demands on our schedule, we are no longer able to work with everyone. To be considered for a consultation, you are also welcome to visit our center. Our reception team will be happy to assist you in completing your intake paperwork. We will contact you once your file has been received and reviewed. You may also schedule a consultation online with the button at left, or e-mail us from our “Contact” page above to request an application to be sent to you.

Scheduling a consultation is an essential requirement to be considered for sessions. We only work with those we have met in consultation and only address medical conditions in collaboration with your physician and medical team. For these reasons, sessions can only be scheduled after the preparation work has been conducted in consultation.

We work in collaboration with your medical team. A physician’s authorization is required, prior to initiating work on medical conditions (this includes weight management). Your physician’s authorization is not needed for the initial consultation. We will contact your medical team after your intial consultation and coordinate with them directly.

Hypnotherapy is not currently covered by insurance. It is an out-of-pocket expense. Please review our office and cancellation policies below before scheduling a consultation.

Cancellation Policy

Because our rooms and team are reserved for you, a 48-hour advance notification is required to cancel or reschedule an appointment. Once your appointment is booked and reserved, a 50% service charge applies to all cancellations. Cancellations with less than 48-hour advance notice and skipped visits are charged a one hour fee. 

Due to the increased demands on our schedule, and the full exclusivity and dedication we offer to each person who books an appointment with us, it is not possible for us to work with those who miss or skip their scheduled and requested appointments. 


If you have not already filled our new client intake form, please arrive 15-20 minutes early to your initial consultation to allow stress-free check in, paperwork completion and a little decompression time with one of our delicious bererages in our comfortable lounges. Please note your session begins at the time at which you were scheduled.

Hypnosis for Weight Loss

Hypnosis for Weight Loss - A woman wearing a blue dress - Forskolin

Contrary to popular beliefs, the wide-spread battle for weight loss has less to do with food and more to do with the way your mind is programmed. In the US, food is available to all of us. Yet, some people face lifelong struggles with excess weight and obesity while others remain slim and fit throughout their lives. The reason for these differences in motivation, fitness, energy and life choices is rooted in the way your brain is programmed to respond and react.  It has little to do with genes or hereditary makeup. It is simply learned and rehearsed programmed behavior. The brain controls every part of our lives, from vital functions such as breathing to our capacity to comprehend the world around us, process and memorize events, and react accordingly. When we change the programming of our mind, we change the way we act, react and experience life.

Take Control of Your Fitness Goals

Following a proven, step-by-step approach, we will teach you how to reprogram your mind to permanently transform your life, silhouette, health and fitness. Forget the uphill battle of yo-yo dieting, self-sabotaging behaviors and discouraging relapses. Hypnotherapy allows you to permanently retrain your brain to reach your goals easily and effortlessly, restore your energy levels, boost your immune system and begin a new chapter of life.

Medical Coordination

The American Medical Association now recognizes weight loss as a medical condition. A physician’s written authorization is required prior to initiating work on medical conditions.

As clinical hypnotherapists, we work  in close cooperation with your medical team. If you are currently taking prescription medications, do not stop or reduce your dosage without your doctor’s approval. Your continued progress is monitored by your doctor. This enables us to ensure your progress in an optimal manner.

Step 2 – Using precisely targeted methods, we reprogram your tastes and desires to align them with your fitness and health goals.

Step 3 – Using powerful acupressure techniques, you are taught to reprogram yourself, anytime you need, anywhere you are, to permanently eliminate cravings, enhance your fitness and well being and boost your energy.

Role of the Subconscious Mind

The subconscious mind controls every part of our lives, from the functioning of our organs to the processing and storage of our experiences, memories, learning and functioning capacities. Very often, events and situations we might not even consciously remember play an important role in our deeply engrained habits, behaviors and actions.

A child, for instance, who witnesses the illness of beloved family member, may notice how thin the person is and could very well, without consciously realizing it, establish a subconscious association between weight loss and illness, potentially death. Once this association is imprinted in the mind, it becomes a lifelong and deeply rooted protective mechanism. Later on in adult life, no matter the attempts, will power of methods employed, if the subconscious mind is convinced weight loss leads to illness, it will kick in and resist every attempt to lose weight in order to preserve and protect health.

Hypnosis enables us to go back to the cause and examine the initial sensitizing event with an open, objective and adult mind. This allows us to bring clarity and understanding to the actual cause of the problem. The cause is never food or the specific behaviors in themselves, but deeply anchored emotional issues such as low self-worth, misperceptions or negative beliefs buried within the subconscious mind. By going back to the cause, we understand these protective mechanisms are no longer needed and have in fact been hindering our health, well being and happiness. Once this understanding is integrated, we are finally able to achieve our goals easily and effortlessly. When the cause is dissolved, the problem disappears.

Success Stories

Elijah, Portland, Oregon, March 2011

Thank you Genvièv. Before coming to see you, I had been struggling with weight issues my entire life. With every diet, I went through excruciating cravings. The caffeine and sugar withdrawals I experienced each time I tried to quit my addiction to sodas were unbearable. Every failed attempt discouraged me further.

When you explained trying to fix self-sabotaging behaviors without finding and treating their cause was the reason for the unsuccessful outcomes, I wondered how we would find the cause of this lifelong problem. I wasn’t aware of it.

I had never been hypnotized before, yet, the moment you brought me back to origin of the problem and I found myself a little boy again, waiting for the ice-cream truck in front of my parents’ home, the scene was so vivid, it was like being there all over again. I was barefoot in the grass and I could actually see how tall the grass was. When the ice-cream truck arrived, I could see every sticker on the truck, the face of the man driving it, the shirt he had on, with startling clarity. I had no idea I still remembered that man who played such an insignificant role in my life in the grand scheme of things. When we followed me back to my childhood home, everything was there in vivid and colorful details.

Finally being given the chance to understand the profound reason behind my lifelong self-sabotaging habits was incredible. After one session, I truly feel more in control of my destiny. In the week since, I have not had a single soda and did not experience any of the cravings and withdrawals I always had in the past! The shift was easy and natural. I changed my eating habits as well, choosing healthy, nutritional foods instead of the unhealthy choices I made before.

I cannot believe I didn’t try hypnosis years ago! It is a very awakening experience, truly something I had never experienced before.

Florence, London, England, July 2010

I listened to your session only once and it is funny, at times, as I am walking through the streets of London, I can hear your voice, vibrating in my imagination and filling me with confidence. What an incredible gift! I didn’t fall back in the negative patterns I had been struggling with since my childhood. Sometimes, when I’m tired and stressed, I feel the glimpse of an old negative habit, as a far away memory trying to attract me from a distance, but I drink a tall glass of water and the temptation is gone.

Chip, Ashland, Oregon, June 2010

Genvièv, wow… you have a true gift! What an incredible experience your session was. I felt “elsewhere” as I was listening to your voice, and when you took me back to the root of the problem in my childhood, I saw the little boy I was then. By the end of the session, I felt liberated, full of energy and joy. The results were instantaneous.
