About Susan Gold
Susan Gold, Certified Hypnotherapist, has had great success using hypnosis to help her clients make life-changing discoveries and transform their habits and self-concepts.
What Makes My Sessions Unique
My hypnotic “suggestions” are highly personalized and grow organically from exploratory discussion rather than depending on pre-prepared scripts. Because I am trained to use a wide variety of hypnotic techniques, I am able to select an ideal approach for each individual.
We will take the time to dig into the history of your problem to begin understanding what has prevented you from making the changes you desire. We will then identify the beliefs, feelings, and behaviors that will help you overcome blocks and reach your goals.
My style of working with others is warm, nurturing, and nonjudgmental. I am an attentive listener and will create a safe and encouraging environment for you to grow.
Training in Hypnotherapy
I am trained and certified through the National Guild of Hypnotists, the oldest and largest professional hypnosis organization in the world. I am constantly furthering my studies by participating in professional conferences, attending workshops and classes, and I am a voracious reader of books on hypnosis and subjects relevant to my practice. I have received special training in pain management, interactive guided imagery, and personal coaching.
Education and Professional History
I hold an M.A. degree in Creative Writing from San Diego State University and have taught writing, literature, and mythology classes at the college and high school levels. Much of the curriculum that I have developed fosters self-exploration and creative expression. I also received extensive training and supervision in counseling while working as a crisis intervention counselor at a local community agency.
In January 2012, I was invited to be on the Board of Directors for Imagery International, a professional association for guided imagery practitioners.
