Biography for Kristin Ellingson, CHt

With the belief that all hypnosis is self-hypnosis and the strong conviction that being 'the boss of your brain' is the ultimate goal, Kristin uses Hypnosis, Guided Imagery and NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming) to help her clients set goals, diminish the impact of past struggle and develop a vision for their future that creates opportunity, achievement, and relaxed, focused enjoyment of life.

A native of Montana, Kristin attended NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and went on to become a Master Hypnostist, and Imagery Facilitator at The Hypnosis Motivation Institute. She is a member of the American Hypnosis Association and a sixteen year member of the WGA. Kristin has worked as a screenwriter and journalist is happy to report that hypnosis is a fantastic solution for writer’s block.

As a Hypnotherapist, Imagery Facilitator and Master Hypnotist I’m delighted to have witnessed the wonderful shifts that happen when self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviors are replaced with positive thinking and healthy reactions.

Whether it is taking an airplane flight free of anxiety, getting control of eating or reaching career goals, I truly enjoy guiding my clients to change old associations and create new ways of thinking and being that will not only end habits and fears, but ultimately attract what the client most wants in their lives.

I welcome any questions you might have about hypnotherapy and the wonderful power of the mind.
