Hi, I’m Gina Vance, Hypnotherapist, Trauma Healer, and Meditation Coach.

Though I had the highest level of training in hypnotherapy, I found the doctor/patient model or practitioner/subject kind of therapeutic relationship, to be very limited.  

You know - my job to figure out what’s “wrong” with you; your job to comply with my prescription, or “suggestion”.

Eww.

It wasn’t until I began to incorporate interactive forms of guided imagery, and mind-body skills into my work, that my clients’ results went off the charts - so much so, that I became known in my hometown, as the one to go to when nothing else worked!

Even though I insisted it wasn’t me, it was the tools - I was nevertheless given credit for the miracles that occurred in my office, all the while knowing that, yes, I am highly skilled with the tools, but this is a power available to all humans:

The power of the subconscious mind,

the imaginal realm,

the inner world.

Over the last 2 decades my clients have helped me develop a process of interactive inner journeying that taps into the phenomenal capacities hidden in every human.

Because no matter what you’ve done, or has been done to you, It’s All Healable.

Are you game?





Hi, I’m Gina Vance, Hypnotherapist, Trauma Healer, and Meditation Coach.

And I’ve found that when I tell some people I am a hypnotherapist, their eyes get big and they’ll say something like: “You hypnotize people?”

It doesn’t matter what I say after that, because the predominant amount of their attention is on some freaky hypnosis movie or stage show they once saw - and so no matter what I say, that’s where the predominant amount of their attention is!

hypnosis is a powerful way to harness and direct the phenomenal power of the mind-body connection,

But in the simplest terms, it’s really just where the predominant amount of your attention is directed; what you’re most immersed in in a given moment.

It’s a highly receptive state (that doesn’t require relaxation) where we take in details either because of shock and awe, repetition, or association - basically learning.

Once we’ve learned something, it can be accessed automatically as your ABCs.

Trouble is, not everything we learn is good, right or true.

Hypnotherapy can help you update deeply-held perceptions and understandings of yourself and of life, that you no longer find to be true, and free yourself of self-limiting subconscious beliefs.

It is NOT a truth serum!  Yes you can most certainly lie while a highly focused state called hypnosis! And everything that comes into your awareness in hypnosis is not a fact! - the subconscious is full of lies, for example: you are not lovable, you are not worthy, you are not valuable, you don’t have what it takes - and so on!

I beg to differ!

I teach how to work with hypnosis and its spin-off modalities in private consultation, small groups, seminars, and in trainings for health and helping professionals.

What is called "hypnosis" is the mother of all mind-body practices, including guided imagery, NLP, mindfulness, meditation, mental imagery, creative visualization, self-inquiry, and so on.

Whatever you’ve learned in difficult experiences, It’s All Healable.

How Many Sessions Does It Take?

How many sessions always depends on the individual and the layers needed to be strengthened and cleared so the love, comfort and freedom can blossom bigger and fuller. Most people work with me in sets of 6 sessions at a time, for 3, 6 or 12 months.  If you're not familiar with my work, I recommend you experience an initial session, at the end of which you will know for certain if this work is for you, at this time. We typically meet weekly, or every-other-week initially, and for those who desire continued support after completing substantial work together, monthly and bimonthly sessions are available.
