Philosophy and Comments        

The fascinating science and profession of hypnotherapy is gaining momentum. It has become a truly rewarding career opportunity in an expanding field of applications. Hypnotherapy works; it really, really works, and as such is indispensible and valid.

People who just a few years ago were barely aware of its existence, today learn about it from their physicians recommendations, from a lifestyle magazine, TV shows with famous people who praise the ease that hypnotic approach offered for their smoking cessation, losing weight, painless delivery, or acknowledging its role in their amazing sports results, confidence level, emotional freedom, and the list of achievements, improvements, and personal success goes on and on. Most importantly, now a day much more often they learn about it from people they know personally.

Yes, hypnotherapy is a hot topic, healing and life coaching modality in its own rights, because it utilizes the power of positive thinking in a way that makes sense to the whole mind.

Fresh from a science lab: What happens in ones brain when a behavior modified with a hypnotic suggestion is being executed, and how is it very different from modification based on will power?

Also: How does it clearly explain that for example there are no grounds for a person who accepted hypnotic suggestion to become a nonsmoker, to experience urges to smoke, or withdrawal symptoms, or any habitual push to reach for cigarettes.

What our clients are saying:

“I was one month pregnant when I saw you to quit smoking. After that one session, smoking was out of my mind completely.

Thank you from me and our healthy son. Bless you.


“This is great! ... I just thought that I would share this similar recent good fortune - until October 8th 08 I smoked a pack to a pack and a half a day (25 to 40 cigarettes a day) for 44 years!!! ... I had some sessions with Ivona and am no longer a smoker either ... Imagine the freedom I feel as a non-smoker!

I'm sooo thrilled being a non-smoker that anything I can do to let people know how instrumental you were in bringing that change about is good for me ... we ... all


Wayne Copeland”

“Hi Ivona! Just a note to say THANK YOU I am now 40 days smoke and drug free . I hardly even think about smoking now.


A W R "

Smokers are not equal when it comes to quitting. Some have very urgent motivation to quit, and some just a very vague idea why should they do it; some experience kind of grief when they imagine themselves without a cigarette, and there are those overwhelmed with the idea of quitting, or “who choose to stay smokers”.


An approach to quitting that is best for one person doesn’t have to work for another. It’s important to do it in a way tailored to the person's individual experience and circumstances. We offer a very comforting and personalized approach. What you can expect is to be helped out of the mindframe of a smoker, and to develop attitudes and true yearning for health, vitality, and joy of life.

For a smoker, a cigarette feels like an integral part of certain behaviors, like watching TV, having a coffee, finishing a meal, socializing, etc. The ritual of having a cigarette is incorporated in the sequence of actions of that behavior. When a smoker tries to exclude the cigarette, such a behavior feels unusual, and awkward. Having a cigarette seems to bring things to normal, calm everything down (- Kind of tricky with this calming effect?) So, when someone wants to quit smoking, it is like all "software" for these behaviors needs to be exchanged for one without a cigarette. There are hypnotherapeutic methods that may allow that.

When somebody tries for the first time to smoke, it is quite a task to convince their body and mind to stop protesting. It takes powerful suggestions to do so. Strong belief, that the side effects are minimal or not existent, and that there is a higher purpose for smoking, worth being served, no matter what. That is one of the reasons why hypnotic suggestions work so well to help someone quit smoking. They challenge the suggestions that allowed the person to start smoking in the first place.

The part of a smoker's mind, that makes sure (he/she) smokes, has no other goal, but taking good care of the person's important needs. As far as that part is concerned, that "higher purpose for smoking" is real and has to be taken care of. With hypnotherapy, it is possible to release that part from its responsibilities, and let it rest assured that its job is being done in a way free from all the side effects of smoking.

For some, the best approach to quitting smoking is to develop a strong aversion to a cigarette.

When a person considers quitting, very often finds himself/herself in a situation similar to that of a woman that is going to give birth for the first time. Usually, she hears lots of stories about everything possible that ever was difficult or painful for any other woman. Going for delivery, it feels like having a very long menu of tortures to choose from. It’s a very tough spot to be, and probably if she only could, she would just turn back and not do it. Her mental situation has very little or nothing to do with her circumstances, but that is the reality that she truly experiences.

Very similar thing happens to a smoker when he/she tries to inquire about other people quitting, horror stories go on and on, and on…And it really may feel like having to overcome all these obstacles to quit. And this is simply not true.

But it affects perception.

If someone doesn’t want to quit (being to afraid, or for any other reason), out of every other evidence around, he/she would notice that one person that is hundred years old, always smoked, and obviously outlived everybody else.

When someone wants to quit, starts meeting more and more people who quit easily, notices beautiful changes in their health, confidence, finances, and overall take on life. And yes, sees smoking clearly for what it is. All starts with fresh perspective and clear vision of what you want.

There are many techniques used in hypnotherapy to help someone become smoke free, either instantly or over a few sessions.

What our Graduates are saying        

"It was with tremendous joy that I graduated as a Certified Hypnotherapist recently.

The experience was fulfilling and mind-expanding.

My instructor was Ms. Ivona Zager, M.A.,Certified Instructor for the National Guild of Hypnotists and Director of Counseling Hypnotherapy Center.

Not many people know enough about hypnotherapy.

It is becoming an alternative to anaesthetics in doctors’ and dentists’ offices.

I also went through extensive training in dealing with smoking cessation, weight loss/gain, self confidence and other issues such as nail biting.

While these were all superbly engaging and I am fortunate to have acquired the skills.

I wanted to state however, that hypnotherapy leads to and has an underlying focus of understanding the self.

I was lead by my instructor to examine the core of who I am and to fine tune the reason for my being and these aspects to me, were most beneficial.

I would like to encourage individuals to explore the exciting world of hypnotherapy and to learn how wonderful it is and a form of making oneself and others whole and blessed with self esteem.

Dr. Franklin Ramsoomair, Certified Hypnotherapist"

"I am having a hard time trying to find the words to show my sincere gratitude & appreciation. Thank you just seem so miniscule comparing it to the jaw-dropping experiences that we all enjoyed during our time in class. On the wow-factor scale, you have the very top of the scale & then if you (exponentially!) look way, way, way up you will find the Ivona factor!!! You have a very rare & extra special heart that is as big as the Universe (& beyond) and your willingness to share it will never be forgotten.

I’m still dumbfounded at the priceless (& life changing) experiences we all enjoyed! & the tears in our eyes from all the belly-laughing we did is (already!) being greatly missed!!!

Forever grateful,

Paul McKenna,

Certified Hypnotherapist"

"Thank you very much for a most enlightening and rewarding experience. These days spent with you were astonishingly rewarding and mind-lifting.

I intend to pursue hypnotherapy as far as I can go. This is due to you.

Your quiet but powerful self confidence and your vast array of knowledge, along with the charm with which you present, touched me deeply and inspired me.

Warmest regards,
