Barbara Habschmidt

Certified Hypnotherapist 

​by National Guild of Hypnotists

I am dedicated to your well-being and helping you attain your goals.  Many of life's circumstances are beyond our control...but our thoughts, feelings, and actions are within our control. Hypnosis is a journey of discovery and change. Perhaps you will discover the ability to manage pain without drugs, or discover the ability to move comfortably through situations that used to cause panic, or to develop the ability to shift your focus onto more of what's right instead of only what's wrong.

During the  hypnosis process, I will safely and skillfully guide you to respond to suggestions for change.  First, we will together uncover the challenges that create distress in your life.  Next, I will guide you into a relaxed state. You have my full professional guarantee that you will be in control of your mind and body throughout the session. Once you are in a relaxed state, I  will then offer suggestions for change that are uniquely meaningful to you and your situation or condition.  Finally, I will guide you to emerge peacefully from your relaxed state.  I will provide you with "homework" in the form of a written affirmation for you to read to reinforce the suggestions I've made.

About Barbara and Hypnosis

Barbara is the lead hypnotherapist and founder of Hypnosis for Empowerment. In addition to helping clients improve thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that limit their lives, she specializes in the management of symptoms brought on by medical conditions. She is deeply dedicated to helping people with cancer manage the mental and physical challenges of their diagnosis. Her work at a local hospital, easing patients’ worry and claustrophobia, received high praise from her clients, the  MRI staff and the radiation oncology staff. 

Outside of the hospital setting, Barbara has worked privately with her clients on issues such as weight loss, insomnia, smoking cessation, IBS, public speaking, and sports performance. In addition to private sessions, she offers group and corporate hypnosis workshops and seminars that inspire people to use hypnosis to change their lives so they can live the life they want. With hypnosis...there are endless possibilities.

She has over 200 hours of training in the field of hypnosis and is certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists. She follows the NGH Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice to ensure each client’s success and well being.
