Debbie Dubickas wasn’t always a clinical hypnotherapist, and the Scotland native never thought she'd end up in Florida. She's owned and managed a diverse array of businesses, but it seems it was only a matter of time before she found her calling. Her whole life, Debbie has been fascinated by hypnosis and psychology, and been a listening ear for friends and family. After a stretch of life-changing spiritual experiences, she decided to become certified in clinical hypnotherapy.
Debbie has helped clients on both sides of the Atlantic improve their lives through targeted suggestion. She's registered with the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners, and uses sessions to set positive intentions and help clients regress back to the causes of problematic behaviors. Sessions typically range from one to two hours as clients untangle and free themselves from unhealthy eating habits, smoking, or fears.
While some hypnotherapists work by conditioning the psyche to reject bad habits, Andrea Crouch prefers to open the psyche to its power of choice. Her affirming intonations dissolve feelings of obligation and frustration, replacing them with a sense of agency and self-worth. She believes that people who "love themselves fully" are less likely to find solace in addictions, unhealthy diets, and snuggling with grizzly bears. Andrea also directs her mesmeric voice toward helping people enjoy exercise and excel in the workplace; in addition, she teaches mothers self-hypnosis techniques to ease natural childbirth.
An integral part of Andrea's support team, Maryanne Everett, certified hypnotist and holistic health coach, helps clients attain their weight loss goals or assuages aches with pain management therapy. Maryanne's ability to unfurl tension through licensed massage therapy complements her hypnotherapy background, which includes 400-plus hours of training she completed at Florida's first official licensed hypnotherapy institute. She applies her knowledge by conducting hypnosis for pain-management treatments as well as holistic coaching hypnosis sessions.
Over the course of his career, Dr. Robert Miles has performed more than 6,000 cosmetic procedures—and pioneered a new one, which he dubs 3D Body Sculpting. The cutting-edge procedure has effects similar to liposuction, but without the hassle of general anesthesia. VASER Lipo contours physiques using ultrasonic waves, tightening the skin to prevent sagging, and liquefying or vaporizing fat, all during one procedure. The results can include a more shapely physique and sleeker silhouettes.
At the Center for Integrated Therapies, Curtis Schindeler uses hypnotherapy to treat everything from addictions to depression. In the past, Curtis has helped his clients successfully overcome conditions that include posttraumatic-stress disorder, smoking addictions, and relationship problems. Unlike the way hypnosis is commonly portrayed in popular culture, the client remains in total control throughout the session. He or she is fully capable of ending the hypnosis at any point, and any chicken clucking that occurs is entirely voluntary. Curtis is also a Mental Health Counselor Intern who works under the supervision of a Licensed Mental Health Counselor.
Like a private detective, Bryant R. McCall specializes in discovering motives, even ones buried in the deepest recesses of the brain. Using hypnosis as his magnifying glass, McCall aims to access, affect, and ultimately change the areas of the subconscious responsible unwanted behaviors such as smoking or eating too many cigarettes. His tinkering treatments have even earned him a nickname: The Mind Mechanic.
McCall’s personalized approach begins with a consultation, during which he interviews his clients on their specific problems and designs a hypnosis session with targeted goals. Addressing issues ranging from unhealthy cravings to a fear of public speaking, the programs may also include follow-up sessions and homework assignments meant to reinforce the results of the hypnosis session.
