Is there something about your life that you would like to change?

"I've been very fortunate in my more than 35 year hypnotherapy career. I devote about half my time to area of public speaking and conducting seminars. I work with foreign speaking audiences in countries around the world using the unique simultaneous translation techniques I've developed. The remainder of my time is devoted to private hypnotherapy sessions in person and by phone.

I've used hypnotherapy with about every type of issue that can be presented to a Hypnotherapist. The private clients I work with are committed to work toward a solution to their problems and understand that it could take a few weeks or, in some cases, several months for them to reach their goals."
--Dr. Kenneth Grossman


Because of the nature of hypnosis, where much of the work is done with the clients eyes closed,  hypnotherapy works extremely well over the telephone. You'll simply need a telephone, or headset or speaker phone and be in a place where you will not be disturbed during the sessions. A land line works best but is not required.

Some of the issues Dr. Grossman works with...

  • Smoking Cessation
  • Weight Control
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks 
  • Anger
  • Insomnia
  • Depression with a smile
  • Addictions to alcohol, nicotine, drugs or food
  • Stress and stress-related illness
  • Fears and phobias
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
  • Biting nails, pulling hair, bed-wetting.
  • Improve fertility
  • Improve performance in business

  • Get in the zone for sports.

*"I want to express my sincere appreciation for the quality of care you provided me in our private telephone consultations. Not only do you have incredible hypnosis skills, but more importantly, you conveyed a deep sense of regard for me as a person. You always took the time necessary to insure the real problems were addressed. You have been a very important influence in my personal recovery. Thank you so very much!" 
-- Jerry White Psy.D., LMFT La Mesa, CA    Doctor of Psychology and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

*“We had three private sessions concerning my needle phobia and it really paid off. Today I went for my blood work. My blood pressure was high when I first went into the office but listening to your tape and drinking 2 bottles of water as you suggested made the experience almost delightful. Thanks for your help. By the way, I listen to the stress reduction program you made for me religiously and the sound of your voice now lulls me into wonderful relaxation." 
--Kathy Cronin

 *"Once I started working with you the weight just melted off. Your insight and suggestions accomplished more in 2 months than I had in 5 years with a psychologist. I love the new me and I can never repay you for what you did for me." 
-- Marie Fishbourne, New York, NY

*“I am a retired San Francisco police officer who is competing in the United States National Judo Championships. The private sessions I had with Dr. Grossman and the custom tape he made for me were absolutely fantastic! Perfect! Exactly what I needed and wanted. Only an accomplished martial artist like Dr. Grossman would have had the insight to make a program as good as the one he made for me. Thank you, Dr. Grossman, for taking the time to make my program perfect.  I have the deepest of gratitude. If anyone is considering having hypnotherapy with Dr. Grossman feel free to email me if you want further information.”  
--Neil Swendsen  Retired San Francisco Police Officer and Judo Champion

*"I wanted to take the time to thank Dr. Grossman and let you know I am doing very well these days and extremely happy.  I am sure all of the panic and stress was from hyperthyroid.  I feel so blessed that I had Dr. Grossman to see me through the worst time of my life.  I truly thought I was going crazy.  I am now doing fantastic. I am truly thankful for all your support. If it wasn't for Dr. Grossman and my magic button I would have never survived. You will always have a special place in my heart. Thanks Again.”  ----Janice Presz

*“I am a non-smoker and I feel great! All the suggestions you gave me during our last session are working for me. I have no cravings or symptoms of withdrawal. Working with you has empowered me in more ways than one. I am amazed at how quickly stress is defused with just one deep breath. You have helped me even more that I had hoped. I can't thank you enough.”

--Nancy Clifford, Canada 

*"I'll never be able to repay you for your insight into my panic attacks. I had been to medical doctors who told me nothing was wrong. I went to psychologists, chiropractors, acupuncturists. I tried all sorts of medicines, vitamins and herbs and never felt relief. From our first session together I felt like I finally found someone who understood me and knew how to help solve my problem and that I wasn't going crazy. Talking to you was so easy. I felt like you were a trusted friend from the first time we talked. It's been over 6 months now since we finished our phone sessions and I've never had another panic attack. My anxiety is completely under control with the self-hypnosis you taught me. I feel free and alive again! God bless you Dr. Ken."

-- Janice Schindler, Atlanta, GA 

*"I want to thank you for helping me to eliminate the single most powerful addiction I have ever had, smoking! I truly view myself now as a non-smoker and it has changed my life in a short time dramatically. I am now a true believer in your abilities and in your approach. I am hopeful one day I can repay you for the gift you have given me! I am not rich in money, but I am rich in my professional abilities, diverse personal talents and friendships. You need only ask once if I can ever be of service."
--Matt Eguren, Downers Grove, Il  

*"Our coaching sessions helped me to triple my income in 4 months. I couldn't be more pleased and I thank you for helping me to achieve a real break through in my attitude about life." 
-- George Gorgas, Colorado Springs, Co 

*“Today marks the end of our private sessions, and I no longer have a fear of small spaces and heights. This fear used to limit my activities (skiing, flying, elevators, etc,..) and leave me with a terrible feeling of swallowing my tongue and my throat tightening up. I have now confronted my fears with your help, and put an end to the anxieties I once felt. In addition, to relieving these fears, you have also succeeded in dramatically lowering my stress levels and increasing my motivation. Best of all you have given me the ability to keep this positive feeling forever through self-hypnosis. You are a truly gifted therapist and I really appreciate all of your help. With the tools and techniques you have taught me, I now look forward to a stress free, productive life style where I can confront and conquer anything that comes my way. Thank you for everything, I look forward to contacting you about other programs soon. (Especially the weight loss and golf!) Sincerely,"
-- Larry L. Lantis, San Jose, CA 

*"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for giving me my life back. After my car accident I was put on many very strong pain medications...including oxycontin...to cope with the pain. After many years of taking them I was addicted and they were ruining my life. But, thanks to you I am now able to live my life FREE from painkillers. And somehow through our hypnosis sessions I don't feel the pain anymore. You are a great man and I thank you." 
-- Dean Schiller 

*"Just wanted to email you and let you know how things are going. I've been using the self hypnosis that you taught me a lot. I usually do it once in the morning before I leave the house, then once in the middle of the day on my lunch break and for a few minutes before I go to sleep, and I am noticing more and more each day the changes it's bringing about in the way I feel, act, and think. Your program of private sessions has helped me TREMENDOUSLY and I cannot express how much I am thankful for finding your site and for you helping me change my life. I would suggest this program to anyone who wants to be proactive in making positive changes in their life, not only socially but also professionally. I honestly cannot thank you enough for all you've done for me."
--Don Kilgus 

*"I want to tell you that I already miss our weekly sessions, and I definitely see the positive results from my sessions to work on my attitude and overall way I choose to interact with my co-workers, clients and others. Each day on my morning drive into work, I say my affirmations and make a point of being kind, understanding, patient, likeable, friendly and approachable with everyone I meet and exhibit outstanding people skills all day long. This is really amazing because I was once told I had 'no people skills" by a co-worker. Thanks so much Dr. Grossman for the positive change you helped me achieve and I look forward to continued improvements in my life." 
--Sharon Hardy 

*“I am living a much better life now since we did those private sessions for my social anxiety. I have survived the entire boys’ basketball season, going to airports, and much, much more. I don’t understand it, but the tools you have given me all seem to work. Thank you.”
--Chuck Massier  
*"My son Michael wished to improve his baseball skills including focusing on the pitcher, coach and base running. Since he's started your private sessions, Michael has listened to one of your CD's each day. In mid July after only a month, Michael attended the University of Alabama baseball camp for high school age boys. During the week long camp, Michael had one of the highest batting averages out of about 100 campers. His base stealing was among the best and he was probably in the top ten percentile during the speed test. Although, baseball for him is over this season, we feel he's made substantial progress. Michael returned to school to start his Junior year almost two weeks ago. I've noticed him bring books home and immediately studying after dinner. I asked him a few days ago if he felt your program was aiding him in his studies and he was enthusiastic in his response. "Without a doubt"! He said he's more attentive towards his teachers and seems to immediately perk up whenever a teacher begins to teach. He has pages of notes from class... something I've never seen him have...and is motivated towards his classes. It's now football season and Michael is playing as usual. He didn't play a defensive position last year and is earmarked to be the starting defensive tackle. Obviously his speed and quickness is paying off. He's seems to be calmer than before and has matured this summer. Your program is working and we can’t wait for baseball season to come back around. Thanks for your help in giving Michael the means to achieve his goals." 

--- Larry E (proud father)

How long is each session?

Hypnosis sessions are usually 60 minutes.

How often are the sessions held?

Sessions are usually held once a week, but sometimes clients in crisis may need more than one session a week or a longer session.

How many sessions are required?

The number of sessions required depends on the problem or issue for which the client is seeking help. It also depends on how long the client has had the issue or problem, the clients motivation to change, their ability to follow instructions and their responsiveness to hypnosis.

How much is my investment?

Your investment depends on your goals and your reasons for seeking services. I've worked thousands of clients and with almost every kind of problem imaginable and have created specific programs for many issues. Unlike many psychotherapists I want to empower my clients so they can rely on themselves. In the long run hypnotherapy is much faster and much less expensive than traditional "talk" therapy which takes years, and often involves medications and often nothing is resolved. At the evaluation session I'll let you know how many sessions it will take to accomplish your goals.

What happens if I have to miss a session?

We expect the courtesy of a 48 hours notice, otherwise that session is charged unless we fill the time slot.

What happens at the first session?

You'll get my undivided attention along with the opportunity to discuss your problem/issue/goals. During your initial session you'll be evaluated for your ability to be hypnotized, your questions will be answered and we'll usually have time for a short hypnosis session. Afterward I'll let you know how many sessions it will take to accomplish your goals. If we have a meeting of the minds we'll set up your session plan and schedule your next session.
