The Hypnotist

Welcome to my website

My name is Johnathan Banks and I specialize in helping people quit smoking, quit drinking alcohol, lose weight, lessen or eliminate body aches and pains, sleep better, wake up full of energy without the need for coffee, eliminate depression, fears and nightmares, gain confidence and focus better than ever at sports or on the job.

For hypnotherapy, I come to you. And I am not your ordinary hypnotist. With me, there is no laying down, no whale music, no talking softly and no long, drawn out and boring hour long sessions. With me, you are standing on your feet and I hypnotize you in 2 minutes by using 3 progressive exercises, each one is meant to help you relax and focus more and more. Then you can sit down and we’ll spend 15 minutes or less on the therapy. And most therapies are successful within 1 to 3 sessions.

What is hypnosis? First of all, it isn’t sleep nor is it mind control and it certainly isn’t against your religion. In fact, each and every one of us are in and out of a hypnotic trance hundreds, if not thousands, of times every day the very moment you focus on a book, a TV show, a phone call and have blocked out the noises around you which could have easily distracted you. This hypnotic trance, which is actually "self hypnosis" is simply focusing on something while blocking out other things. Hypnosis, not self hypnosis, is when a professional hypnotist helps you achieve that state of focus.

Is hypnosis safe? Thanks to movies, a common misconception is that you’ll lose your willpower and do things you’ll never do, just like you may have seen on a stage show, or that you might get stuck in hypnosis. The truth is, you can’t be made to do anything you wouldn’t normally do and you can’t be made to do anything that's against your moral compass. The people who act out on a stage would have done so even if they weren’t under hypnosis because they are natural at clowning around. And if the hypnotist were to stop talking, you would simply open your eyes.

Why do people close their eyes and look like they're asleep when they're hypnotized? When the hypnotist says the word sleep, what is actually happening is your entire central nervous system will completely calm down, which means you will stop fidgeting, at which point you will become more alert than you've ever been which is why people who can calm themselves down and stop fidgeting can focus better than others on the job at hand.

What does hypnosis feel like? Your eyes are closed, you've stopped fidgeting and you feel relaxed and can still hear everything going on around you and you feel as if you could open your eyes but you are so relaxed that you just want to keep your eyes closed and enjoy the experience.
