Biography for Cynthia O'Donnell

Cynthia O'Donnell, Certified Master Hypnotist

Discover what your mind can achieve. Choose to guide your subconscious.

As an 2020 Honors Graduate of HMI, I can help you create lasting change in your behaviors, your self image, your emotions, your relationships, and your view of the world around you. Hypnosis is a natural state that provides opportunities for healing, learning and improving the qualify of your life in an endless variety of ways. I can help you become clear on what you would like to achieve and guide your subconscious to align with the life you envision.

I have helped many people successfully improve sleep, reduce anxiety and stress, establish healthy boundaries, improve concentration, and overcome bad habits. Most clients feel much more relaxed and comfortable after the first session, and sleep generally improves significantly. Clients appreciate the soothing and relaxing nature of hypnotherapy and gain a better understanding of how the conscious and subconscious can work together to help them make positive change. I am looking forward to helping you.

I am currently seeing clients safely through Zoom and FaceTime. Phone sessions are also available.

My wide variety of training includes Certifications in Therapeutic Imagery (Masters Level), Smoking Cessation, Weight Loss, Attention Deficit, Anxieties and Fears, Sports and Peak Performance, Past Life Regression Therapy, Healing the Inner Child, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Mental and Emotional Release, and Pre and Post Surgery Hypnosis.

Past Life Regression Therapy provides a wonderful opportunity to explore other aspects of yourself through hypnosis that can unlock emotional blockages, release negative behavior patterns, and gain a level of self understanding and insight in a unique and powerful way.
