ABOUT RISING STAR PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT SERVICES
Gary Schwantes, MFA, CCH, CHt
NLP Master Practitioner
California Teaching Credential
As a Hypnotherapist, I use the power of imagination to transform old habits and responses that might be holding you back into new habits and responses that serve you really well. It's a 100% natural process that focuses on your empowerment.
People turn to me when:
• They feel trapped by irrational fears, like fear of flying, driving, elevators, bugs
• They want to prepare in the best possible way for surgery or childbirth and a quick recovery
• They're afraid to go to the dentist but need dental work badly
• They struggle to change an unwanted behavior like smoking
• They feel frustrated about maintaining their ideal weight
• They want to sharpen a skill like public speaking or sports
• They want to ace a job interview or exam
• They want me to help their child who is having problems at school
My clients experience success with even difficult issues because my approach is very different from what you might normally find:
• I use language that is easy to understand.
• I use a practical approach, grounded in the latest research and techniques.
• You will be treated with respect and will be an active participant in the process.
