Biography for Mark Hilyard, CHt

Mark Hilyard, Certified Hypnotherapist

Mark Hilyard is a Certified Hypnotherapist currently working in the Buffalo-Rochester region of Western New York. He has combined a lifelong interest in philosophy and the psyche with three decades of IT experience identifying and modifying patterns in data, systems and people to now help his clients free themselves from fear, pain, and doubt.

Mark’s self discovery has taken many forms, including the pursuit of two martial art black belts resulting in an understanding of how frame of mind contributes to the limits we accept or overcome. Fiction writing, a hobby since high school, has expanded his ability to create and explore alternatives while guiding clients through personal development. His natural tendency towards humor and metaphor allow him to envision and share a better way, brighter future, compassionate reflection and peaceful heart.
