What is Clinical Hypnosis?

Evaluation & Education

Clinical Hypnosis begins with an in-depth case history. Clients receive detailed education on cognitive and behavioral aspects of the presenting issue and how hypnosis can be effectively applied.

Advanced Hypnosis

A program of advanced hypnosis and guided imagery is designed to uncover root causes of the presenting issue and promote change at the subconscious level.

Personal Coaching

Client progress is supported and accelerated by motivational and behavioral coaching to implement effective strategies for long-term success.


Anthony J. Rotolo, Ph.D.

Founder of HypnoMotiv

"The purpose of clinical hypnosis is to assist everyday people, like you, to overcome discomforts of mind and body."

Discomforts of the Mind

About 40 million Americans struggle with anxious thoughts. One in ten adults have panic attacks each year. If you’re one of them, you probably know how uncomfortable and frightening they can be.

But did you know that "automatic thoughts" like anxiousness emerge from the subconscious mind? With clinical hypnosis, you can learn to control and often eliminate the unwanted feelings that are holding you back.

And many people experience a significant benefit from just one session!

Discomforts of the mind that can be effectively addressed with clinical hypnosis include:

  • Anxiousness and worry

  • Sadness and grief

  • Panic attacks

  • Difficulty sleeping or relaxing

  • Lack of motivation or focus

  • Difficulty in social situations

  • Negative self-talk

  • Low self-image or confidence

  • Post-traumatic stress*

Don’t spend one more day stuck in a cycle of worry and sadness. Request a free consultation and take the first step toward a new, calmer, and happier you.

* Hypnosis is not a substitute for medial treatment or psychotherapy. Presenting issues with possible medial or psychological etiology require a referral from a licensed healthcare professional.

Fears & Phobias

What are you afraid of? Whatever it is, you are not alone; and clinical hypnosis can help you control it, reduce it, and replace it.

Dr. Rotolo has designed a powerful program to flatten fears at the subconscious level. Over the course of several sessions, the fear is systematically desensitized to give you back control of your life.

Clinical hypnosis is particularly effective for addressing fears because it allows for "exposure" to triggering situations through guided imagery, rather than real-life encounters with fear objects. This means you will be able to face your fear head on while remaining in a safe and controlled environment.

Here are just a few of the common fears and phobias that can be helped with clinical hypnosis:

  • Fear of Insects

  • Fear of Flying

  • Fear of Dogs

  • Fear of the Doctor

  • Fear of the Dentist

  • Fear of Illness (e.g., COVID)

  • Fear of Thunder & Lightening

  • Fear of Heights

  • Fear of Closed Spaces

  • Fear of Travel

  • Fear of Success

  • Fear of Failure

  • Fear of Public Speaking

  • Fear of Clowns (yes, really!)

Hypnosis is not a substitute for medial treatment or psychotherapy. Presenting issues with possible medial or psychological etiology require a referral from a licensed healthcare professional.

Unhealthy Habits & Behaviors

Some habits seem impossible to break. They may even become sources of comfort to cope with stress, pain, loneliness, or boredom. But the truth is that these same habits only make us less happy and less healthy.

Clinical hypnosis targets the subconscious associations that drive unhealthy habits. We uncover the underlying motivations for these behaviors, redirect them, and eliminate the habit at its source. 

Some common habits and behaviors that can addressed with clinical hypnosis are:

  • Smoking

  • Overeating

  • Alcohol*

  • Marijuana*

  • Pornography

  • Social Media

  • Nail Biting

  • Nervous behaviors

No matter what habit you're trying to break, a personalized clinical hypnosis program can help you achieve your goal.

* Hypnosis is not a treatment for addiction. This practice offers services for enhancing self-control; however, if you are suffering from addiction, we can refer you to a licensed physician and support from Alcoholics Anonymous or another sobriety program.

Discomforts of the Body

The body and mind are not separate domains. It has long been understood that stress, emotional upset, and subconscious associations can manifest as physical discomfort or impede healing.


Modern healthcare rarely prioritizes the mind-body connection. Many are therefore left to "live with" chronic issues for which there is no physical help.

Clinical hypnosis provides a holistic option for supporting healing and wellness.

The American Medical Association, the American Psychological Association, and the National Institutes of Health have all acknowledged the effectiveness of hypnosis as a complimentary adjunct to treatment for a range of conditions.

Research demonstrates that recovery from illness, injury, and surgical procedures is enhanced when hypnosis and guided imagery are utilized alongside treatment.

In cases where treatment options have been exhausted, or symptoms present as side effects of necessary medication, hypnosis can be applied to desensitize and reduce discomfort.

Issues for which hypnosis may be utilized include:

  • Insomnia

  • Stress

  • Tension Headaches

  • Fatigue

  • Nausea

  • Irritable Bowel

  • Enuresis

  • Ringing in Ears

  • Pre- & Post-Surgical Pain

  • "Phantom" Pain

  • Cancer Recovery

  • Sexual Dysfunction

  • Obesity 

  • Smoking Cessation

Patients and physicians seeking to incorporate hypnosis into a treatment plan are encouraged to request a consultation.

Please note: this practice does not diagnose, treat, or cure medical conditions. Clinical hypnosis is provided only by referral and in coordination with a licensed health care provider.
