a healing experience 

An adjunct to medical care, these sessions are meant to be a healing approach to the holistic and integrative aspect of Self; balancing physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. 

We will work towards this together through the utilization of Clinical Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis Relaxation Therapy.

Clinical Hypnosis & Clinical Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis is a state of inner absorption, concentration and focused attention, sometimes referred to as being In Trance. 

Think of it as applied imagination directed towards a positive experience and desired outcome for the patient or client. 

Many clinicians may refer to it as a process, procedure or a treatment.

I consider Clinical Hypnosis as the act of inducing a trance state for clinical purposes. It is often directed by a Clinician or is self-directed. It can be used in conjunction with general therapy to help clients manage health concerns, conditions and/or any concerns that may arise during our sessions.

Therefore, I consider Clinical Hypnotherapy as consisting of the therapeutic relationship & alliance between the clinician and client in which Clinical Hypnosis is included. Wherever appropriate, the goal will involve teaching the patient to utilize Self-Hypnosis on their own to use between & after our sessions.

The Clinical Hypnotherapy approach is a partnership where we work together towards the direction or changes you would like to make, identify your goals, make a plan, and anticipate desired outcomes. 


Dr. Ginn's primary interest in offering Clinical Hypnosis is for Patients with Chronic Pain, Surgical preparation, mild anxiety and fears.

Our sessions  are designed to establish a safe environment for you, to review your goals and discuss any issues that you may want or need to consider . 

Within the sessions, we will blend an approach that includes general patient-centered hypnotherapy, clinical hypnosis and motivational interviewing.  

Appointments are via your Primary Healthcare provider or your Medical/Surgical Specialist.
