Biography for Nicholas Pollak, CHt

Nicholas Pollak is a Certified Hypnotherapist who graduated from the Hypnosis Motivation Institute in Tarzana, California in 1991.

Success can be created in any job field, even with having no prior knowledge of that field.

Born and raised in London, England, I have traveled extensively in Europe, spent two years in Israel, eight years on Australia, and as of now, twenty-six years in America. I bring to my practice a successful background in Sales, Marketing and Entertainment. In Sales, I earned Top Salesman of the Year, two years in a row with GTE Australia, Yellow Pages, winning a total of 15 major sales awards. In Marketing, I was the top marketing representative responsible for generating sales of $12.5 million out of a total of $20 million sold by FHP. In Entertainment, I worked as a technician on popular live TV shows such as Big Brother, The Price is Right, American Idol and more.

"Hypnosis works."

In 1994 I had a severe and debilitating back condition which required major surgery. I decided to use self-hypnosis, and the results spoke for themselves. My recovery time was significantly faster, and my expected side effects of weakness and loss of feeling were significantly less than the doctors had anticipated. My doctor and I absolutely attribute the great recovery to self-hypnosis. That same year I also had a major heart condition, which left me clinically dead for 3 minutes. Again my recovery time using self-hypnosis was much faster than the doctors anticipated.
