People often ask me how and why I became a hypnotist. It is still a somewhat rare profession, which often evokes many questions and some views built upon old stereotypes of hypnosis.
Here we go…
My first exposure to hypnosis was at five years old in Russia, from where I am originally. My mom took me to see a stage hypnotist show for fun. To this day, I remember the female hypnotist taking the stage, making adults act like children. I saw them playing with their imaginary toys and speaking in kid’s voices. I was perplexed.
How could hypnosis make them act like little kids all of the sudden? This was a mystery to me, which I wanted to understand.
I came to the US as an exchange student, then travelled back and forth a few times, until I settled in New York City and started my life from scratch. I remember struggling with trying to find my place in the big city, my purpose and my career. I was a total newcomer into a new culture and on top of all that I had big dreams, I wanted to make films and write books, but I knew I had a long way to go and had no idea where to even start.
One day, I came across an ad in a newspaper for a hypnosis course. This rang a bell in my head. This was it, I thought. Not only could I solve the old mystery of hypnosis I had since I was five, but maybe…
Maybe…. I thought I could somehow use hypnosis to help me get clear, focused and more confident about myself and my goals.
After taking my first hypnosis course, I began designing my own self-hypnosis tapes to help me be a better version of me. I made tapes to help me speak slower and more pronounced, to be more confident in my acting classes, to become a fearless driver. I made audio recordings to develop a better relationship with money and success. I began to see a tremendous potential in self-hypnosis and hypnotherapy all together.
I thought to myself, why don’t I become a hypnotherapist?
At least for now, while building my way up to my big dreams? It would be a great way to help people, make money, and the idea of setting my own schedule and being my own boss was very attractive to me.
So, I made a tape and hypnotized myself to believe I was a successful hypnotherapist. I saw it, I felt it and I spoke to myself the words of confidence and courage in the state of hypnosis. I was 24 years old.
Upon awakening, I was on autopilot, fearlessly pursuing my goal of becoming a hypnotherapist in New York City, connecting the dots and having fun with it. Meeting other successful NYC hypnotherapists, learning from them and working for them. I bartered for sessions, wrote blogs and made videos. After a few years, the NY Post interviewed me and then the NY Times. I had built a practice in Manhattan, on the Upper East Side, helping New Yorkers become a better version of themselves with hypnosis therapy.
Meanwhile, I went to school for filmmaking at The New School University and made a documentary Zaritsas: Russian Women in New York (2010) about Russian women stereotypes, which emerged in late 1990s. I also wrote a science fiction book Quantum Voyeur (2013) for young adults, with another veteran science-fiction writer John Zakour. I was elated.
Ten years later I built a self-hypnosis app called AlphaMind, it helps you create self-hypnosis tapes in three steps in your own voice. And I also launched HypnoCloud online hypnotherapy during the pandemic. On HypnoCloud I have released over 100 hypnosis audio sessions and hypnotic scripts. You can also see me once a month for live workshops and meditation sessions. All of this is for $29 a month. It is a growing platform and I am excited to meet new subscribers as they join every month.
When working with clients, I use a few approaches and models. Most are science and evidence-based approaches. However, over the years, I have developed a deep sense of intuition and (strategic) empathy, which is not entirely scientific, but purely experience based.
I am able to quickly tune into my client’s frame of reference and point of view, which allows for a better rapport and results oriented therapy work. My inquiry method allows my clients to tap into their own resources and deep insight and learning.
I still see clients one-on-one. Although my schedule is tight, because of my involvement with my online business, writing and I am a mother of two girls. My plate is full, but I make the time for a limited number of clients per week. All sessions are online, via Zoom.
Join me on Instagram for updates, exciting news, special discounts. I also release 1-minute hypnosis sessions called HypToks, they are fun, mind blowing and transformative.
I hope to meet you!
P.S I’m happy to report that I did resolve that stage hypnosis mystery, which I saw as a kid. This puzzle was simpler than I thought. Stage hypnosis is a mere compliance by a subject. People on stage hypnosis shows – know exactly what they are doing. They are not asleep, even though it may appear this way. Their eyes are simply closed and they are waiting for an instruction from a hypnotist. It is not mind control. It is an unspoken agreement between the subject and stage hypnotist. It is a permission to act funny and silly.
