Hi everyone and welcome. I’m Michael Peters, a certified hypnotist based in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. I received my B.S. in Psychology from the University of Central Florida and my hypnosis training from the Hypnotherapy Academy of America in Albuquerque, New Mexico –one of the most comprehensive training programs in the country.
Welcome to the next chapter of your success story! I’ve been trained in regression hypnosis, suggestion hypnosis, NLP, EFT, parts integration, medical support hypnosis, and others. If you haven’t studied hypnosis you may not know what any of that means. Let’s be honest, all you care about is results and that’s what I provide. Hypnosis is both a science and an art. There’s a balance between using battle tested protocols and having the flexibility to change it on the fly if something “isn’t working.”
Helping others reach their full potential is something I feel very passionate about. Everyone has a purpose to fulfill, but sometimes life gets in the way. Doubt, fear and negative self-talk prevent you from living the life you deserve. There’s no need to continue on this path, and I want to help you overcome these challenges.
Whether it’s weight loss, stress reduction, improving self-confidence, or anything else you’d like to work on, hypnosis can have an immediate impact on your life. As an eternal optimist, I believe that obstacles aren’t roadblocks but life lessons that empower us. Pessimism is expecting misery and allowing it to happen. Optimism is expecting good fortune and making it happen. Make it happen. Take action Now. I look forward to working with you.

Best Hypnosis and Mental Health Counseling
what is hypnotherapy
Hypnosis treatment services, also known as hypnotherapy, offer a therapeutic approach aimed at relaxation and heightened suggestibility. Under the guidance of a trained hypnotherapist, individuals enter a state of deep focus, where positive suggestions can be employed to address various concerns such as anxiety, phobias, smoking cessation, and pain management. Hypnosis is not mind control but a collaborative process where clients remain aware and in control. While it may be effective for some, results vary, and it is best used as a complementary therapy alongside conventional treatments.
Our hypnosis services offer personalized transformations for your specific needs.

Hypnosis is a type of therapy that creates a state of focused attention and increased suggestibility during which positive suggestions and guided imagery are used to help individuals deal with a variety of concerns and issues. Here is a general overview of the process:
Induction: The hypnotist guides the individual into a state of deep relaxation and focused attention.
Deepening: Techniques are used to intensify this relaxed, focused state of mind.
Suggestion: The hypnotist presents ‘suggestions’ that aim to influence the individual’s behavior or mindset in a positive way. These are absorbed by the subconscious mind.
Emergence: The individual is gradually and gently led out of the hypnotic state back to their normal state of consciousness.
It’s important to note that not everyone responds to hypnosis and that it should only be used under the supervision of a trained professional. Furthermore, hypnosis isn’t a cure-all and isn’t suitable for treating all conditions or issues. It is often used in conjunction with other forms of therapy or treatment.
Hypnosis has been found to provide several benefits when used appropriately under the guidance of trained professionals. It’s important to note that the effectiveness of hypnosis can vary greatly between individuals, and it’s not a suitable or effective treatment method for everyone. Here are some of the potential benefits of hypnosis:
Stress and Anxiety Reduction: Hypnosis can help individuals manage stress and anxiety more effectively.
Pain Management: Hypnosis can be used as a complementary treatment for chronic pain.
Behavioral Change: Hypnosis can support individuals seeking to change certain behaviors, like smoking or overeating.

Phobia Management: Hypnosis can aid in managing and overcoming fears and phobias.
IBS Symptoms Management: Hypnosis can help reduce symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
Mental Health Support: Hypnosis can be used alongside other therapies to manage symptoms of certain mental health conditions.

Weight Loss: Hypnosis can encourage healthier eating and exercise habits for weight loss.
Dermatologic Conditions Management: Hypnosis can help manage certain skin conditions, like psoriasis and eczema.
Remember, it’s essential to consult with a healthcare provider or mental health professional before seeking hypnosis for any health or psychological condition. The professional can help determine whether hypnosis is a suitable option based on the individual’s health status and specific needs.
While hypnosis can be beneficial, it also has some potential drawbacks. These can include:
Varied Effectiveness: Hypnosis doesn’t work equally well for everyone.
Dependence Risk: Some people might become overly dependent on hypnosis.
Temporary Effects: The effects of hypnosis might not be permanent.
Unwanted Memories: Hypnosis could lead to the recall of distressing or repressed memories.
Inadequately Trained Hypnotherapists: There’s risk of harm if the practitioner is not properly trained or ethical.
Not a Standalone Treatment: Hypnosis is typically used alongside other treatments, not as a primary solution for serious issues.
Side Effects: Potential for minor side effects like headaches, dizziness, or disorientation.
Potential for Misuse: Hypnosis could potentially be misused to create false memories or suggestions.
Remember that these drawbacks don’t necessarily mean that hypnosis is harmful or ineffective. However, like any treatment method, it’s essential to be aware of potential issues and to seek treatment from qualified professionals. Always consult with a healthcare provider or mental health professional before seeking hypnosis for any health or psychological condition.
