Your Hypnotist is Jay H. Fine.
Jay has historically always worked in areas where he could serve and help people, starting with a United States Marine Corps (USMC) career in Law Enforcement and later an executive manager in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Jay first became involved with hypnosis, researching and using hypnosis in 1986 for self-improvement and as part of his formal studies for his undergraduate degree. Additionally, later during his law enforcement career he received specialized training in Forensic Hypnosis.
Jay also served as an ordained minister and Police Chaplain in the Wichita, Kansas, area where he conducted various faith based non-denominational counseling with people in crisis and helped plant and pastor four churches.
After retiring from the USMC, DHS and formal ministry service he wanted to provide a more one-on-one service to help people make positive changes in their lives. Therapy style hypnosis was a logical choice as qualified Hypnotists are few and far between.
As Jay continued his studies, he formalized his certification/credentials as a Hypnotist and studies in therapy style hypnosis services, in such specialties as:
- Grief Recovery
- Weight Loss
- Smoking Cessation
- Sexual Issues
- Multiple other subjects that many people are struggling with in their daily lives.
Jay is a Professional Member of the American Hypnosis Association (AHA) and has been certified by the AHA to conduct Hypnosis treatment for many issues.
“We all need help at times and frequently try everything it seems like without any success. Have you ever tried hypnosis? I encourage you to conduct your own research and discover how valid and acknowledged hypnosis is for treatment and changing lives by the medical community.”
Would you like to know what’s on my mind, take a look at some of the books I am reading, have read, or I am constantly re-reading. Some of this reading applies to everyone while others are more specific to hypnosis. Where possible I have provided a link to a free PDF version of the book or more information about it. I do not receive any monetary gain from any of these books or references. Most of these books are also available in Audio and Digital formats. This listing is not in any particular order other than I moved most of the hypnosis books to the end of the list. This is not all the books I found beneficial in my life, just what is most memorable or perhaps recent. I have found something beneficial in all of these books and recommend them for reading. I believe for the mind to stay strong we need to constantly challenge it and ourselves with new information.
