Certified members of the National Guild of Hypnotists, the husband-and-wife team of James D. and Lynn C. Swearingen have been tapping into patients' subconscious since 2006. The duo delves into clients’ minds to discover causes of anxiety, low self-esteem, and emotional trauma before taking steps toward behavioral change. Their treatments also help guests quit smoking, navigate 12-step counseling, or overcome their fear of taking tests while submerged in a shark tank. During each personalized appointment, the Swearingens train patients in self-hypnosis, which requires a minimum of four 50- to 90-minute sessions to master.
I provide hypnotherapy for getting rid of addictions such as smoking, weight loss, eating disorders, fears such as flying, public speaking, or social anxiety, increasing self-confidence, releasing traumas, achieving goals and more.
If you’ve just relocated to San Francisco and need an instantly furnished dwelling, or if you’re just looking to freshen up the living room with a focal point in the form of a rivet-studded ottoman, Therapy is the source. As one of ten locations around the Bay Area, the Valencia Street shop – two adjacent storefronts, really – carries everything from cowhide rugs to metal wall sculptures to hollow glass coffee tables. Nothing is muted and everything is style-forward, an ethos also found on the clothing side of things. An unequal ratio of women’s-to-men’s prevails, but stalwart San Franciscans of all genders know the keyword for looking good is “layers,” and this contemporary boutique has it all, from undershirts to oven mitts. Sunglasses and boots, bags and bracelets, there’s ordinary retail therapy and then there’s actual Therapy.
