Dr. Elaine Kissel, founder of the Elaine Kissel Hypnosis Center, has worked with thousands of people seeking to make changes, gain control for themselves and overcome personal problems.
The Elaine Kissel Hypnosis Center, West Bloomfield, MI, and Scottsdale AZ has been in existence since 1977, and since then has become recognized as one of the most successful hypnotherapy practices in the country. Not just for the numbers of clients Dr. Elaine Kissel serves, but also for the success rate she achieves for her clients.
Dr. Kissel’s mission has always been to help people in the most natural safe and cost-effective way. The success of her clients is her primary concern and she makes a serious genuine commitment to that goal.
Since the Elaine Kissel Hypnosis Center first opened, many innovative programs created by Dr. Kissel to help people achieve their goals have been added to the list of her services. With 35-plus years of progressive development, Dr. Kissel’s reputation for innovation and originality has reached far and wide.
When Dr. Kissel set out to help people with hypnosis, she had to overcome the misconceptions that had held it back for more than a century. The popular though erroneous notions about hypnosis gradually succumbed to her steadfast determination to educate people with the facts and provide the kind of hypnotherapy that was best suited to each individual client.
Dr. Kissel was the first in her field to be allowed to advertise in the popular press because she made it clear that she was not offering entertainment or instant miracles. She has worked tirelessly to eradicate the nonsensical ideas while establishing a new and better reputation for hypnosis with the nature of her practices. She has created a huge wave of credibility and acceptance for hypnosis through her commitment to excellence. And with her scientifically controlled study proving blood sugar can be controlled with hypnosis, Dr. Kissel won new positive recognition for her profession.
Dr. Kissel was awarded the Hypnologist of the Year in 1981 for her contributions to the art and science of hypnosis. Since then she has continued to make significant contributions to the field. For example, Dr. Kissel’s WHOLE MIND THERAPY approach, which employs all levels of consciousness in the hypnotherapeutic process.
Dr. Kissel has been written about in newspapers and magazines, and interviewed on radio and television. She is a sought-after speaker who imparts a wide range of knowledge in an interesting and entertaining way. She is regularly called upon to speak to groups and continues to prove that hypnosis is a viable methodology when practiced with an understanding of its nature and potential, and with respect and integrity of purpose.
