Biography for Allan Elder, PhD

Allan Elder

Allan Elder is a Certified Hypnotherapist with a passion for applied medical hypnosis and helping those suffering from stress, anxiety, fears, phobias, and chronic pain. Living within a medical family and serving as a combat medic in the National Guard, Allan has seen too much suffering and is determined to help people overcome the barriers that limit them.

With a Master’s Degree in Project Management and a PhD in human behavior, Allan has a focus on reaching goals and changing behavior surpassed by few. Goals cannot be reached by good intentions alone, they must be earned. While good planning and willpower are helpful, they are often not enough (just ask anyone that’s tried to lose weight or stop smoking). To reach our goals we must engage the whole power of our mind and this can be accomplished with hypnosis. If you want to reach your goals, Allan’s experience and education go far beyond just planning. He can help you remove the mental blocks that sustain unwanted behavior.

With nearly 10 years of military service, three grown children, two grandchildren, and working as a college professor for nearly 20 years, Allan knows stress, anxiety, fear, and emotional distress. These not only can destroy our lives but often are at the root of chronic pain. Allan has specialized in discovering how to uncover the emotional distress that holds pain in the body and has worked with bedridden clients, stroke victims, those suffering from tinnitus and others suffering from debilitating pain only to find that once the emotional hurts of life are released, not only can pain be reduced or eliminated, but people can regain the lost vigor of their lives and once again enjoy each day.

Allan’s mission is to heal the whole person so every client will feel empowered to achieve excellence living. Allan provides care with warmth, friendliness, passion, and in the spirit of love.
