Hypnosis, our newest offering at Harbor Crest is a tool that has been used for many years
with  significant success.  Performed by Mr. Bleiwas, Certified in Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy,
it is used to resolve problems and difficulties either alone or as an adjunct to therapy.  Unlike stage
Hypnosis the person does not lose awareness, and does not lose their will. Psat-hypnotic suggestions
are heard both consciously and unconsciously at the same time! It is helpful with studying, test-anxiety,
anxiety disorders/OCD, trauma, smoking, weight loss and many other areas.  Please note that  
depending on the issue hypnosis may not be covered by insurance.
