Yes, hypnotherapy is very effective in helping people lose weight and quit smoking—but it is also a valuable tool in treating almost any issue a client will bring in to your office.

Hypnotherapy is applicable to the entire human experience. Clients will come to you wanting help, wanting answers, and hypnotherapy could be the key to their success in treatment.
