Hypnosis is a natural state for human beings. We've all had the experience where we been driving in the car and suddenly realize we passed our exit and have no idea where we are. Or we are reading a book and we realize we've turned three or four pages but haven't actually read anything. Those are moments of hypnosis.
On many levels it feels great to be in that state. Hypnotherapy is simply accessing that deep state of relaxation to make changes in the subconscious. During a hypnotherapy session you are not unconscious, you will hear what the therapist says to you. And you will be completely in control of what you are doing during the session. Hypnotherapy is safe and effective for so many conditions that we are suffering from. Please look at my offerings below and let me know how I can help

It was time to control my anxiety about driving outside my limited comfort zone. I avoided driving distances because I might begin to panic and the risk involved to determine if I would panic was too great. In order to face my situation I choose hypnotherapy with Dr. Gruver. After the initial discussion, she identified what may be causing my anxiety but more importantly was able to assure me that I was capable of controlling the anxiety myself. We accomplished this with hypnotherapy which included relaxation techniques and imagery, and positive talk reinforcement.
I since had to take a lengthy road trip and was amazed that I was comfortable driving for the entire duration of the trip. It was a true sense of freedom.
B., Santa Barbara, CAMy experience in hypnotherapy with Dr. Gruver has been phenomenal. I initially sought her services for problems with anxiety on various levels, and I was genuinely surprised at how effective her hypnotherapy methods were, and in such a short period of time. I'm a tough case, admittedly, and as a hypnotherapy newbie, I was skeptical that I could overcome some fairly serious issues. But Dr. Gruver is a consummate pro and the change I've experienced in controlling my own thoughts and behaviors is amazing. She's fantastic at what she does and continuously enhances her own skill set as a therapist and healing practitioner to better serve clients. I can't thank her enough.

“My experience with hypnotherapy with Kathy Gruver has been amazing! She has helped me get through some of life’s high anxiety situations. I’m a believer! Thank you Kathy!!”

"I'd like to thank you for showing me 2 techniques that helped me tremendously for my pre and post surgery. The breathing in and out big breaths while saying in my head "Let it go I am ready" helped with the anxiety so much. I was very calm while I was being wheeled into the OR.
When I woke up in recovery I held my thumb and middle finger together and concentrated on good feelings and places I love and I didn't get sick at all. Felt Great! A combo of both helped me to walk out of hospital 4 hours after my surgery and go home."

"My experience with Kathy stayed with me long after our session. With her assistance I was able to visualize a lot of images and experiences to help me navigate towards attaining my goals.

Jen M, Santa Barbara, CA
