Hi! I’m Evan.

I'm a Board Certified Hypnotist with the National Guild of Hypnotists, and a Hypnosis Trainer with the UK Hypnosis Academy, and I am here to help you make those big changes you've been wanting.

My motto is “There's no such thing as problems, there are only situations.”

And I firmly believe that whatever situations we find ourselves in - be it battling to overcome anxiety, regaining our confidence, letting go of extra weight or quitting smoking - situations always change. And once you realize that then you will know without a doubt that there is nothing you can’t accomplish.

The best thing about being a hypnotist is being able to see these changes happen in my clients. I look forward to being a part of your journey!

Hear more about me on the Work Smart Hypnosis Podcast with Jason Linett

I recently had the honor of being a guest on the Work Smart Hypnosis Podcast with Jason Linett where I got to share some of my story about how I became a hypnotist, my perspectives on hypnotic change work and why I believe that difficult situations we find ourselves in aren't problems but opportunities for change, growth, and personal transformation.


My Story


In the beginning

For far too long, I had a bad case of the "sposetas." I was living my life based on what I thought I was "sposeta" do, and not living for myself. When there is a conflict between the emotional and logical mind, the emotional mind will always win. This is when I first started struggling with anxiety - because I wasn't living my life in a way that was authentic to myself. So I changed, and I thought I had those old anxiety issues under control until...


And then..

In 2014, I had Bell's palsy, and things never went back to normal. I had basically given up on life. My anxiety went through the roof and I would have constant panic attacks any time I went out in public, so I quit going out. I barely ever saw my friends, became agoraphobic, and gained a ton of weight. Which of course made everything much worse! I didn’t just lose all hope - I lost myself.


My Breakthrough

I knew that wasn't who I was, and eventually enough was enough. I was determined to take back control of my life, and no longer be a prisoner of anxiety. That is how I discovered hypnosis. Thanks to hypnosis, I was able to take back control of my life and not only regain my confidence - but dramatically increase it. Now, the very idea of having a panic attack is as foreign to me as it was before I ever even heard of the term let alone experienced one.


Why I Do What I Do

I became a hypnotist because nobody should have to go through what I did on my journey. And if there is a silver lining to it then that is I can use the wisdom I gained to give others the tools they need to keep growing and succeeding - so I can help others free themselves from whatever old stories they've been telling themselves that kept them stuck. Nobody should have to go through what I did and I want the world to know that nobody has to.

What I believe

  • There are no such things as problems, only situations.

  • Situations always change.

  • You can change.

  • It is never too late to change.

  • Every day, life is just beginning.


We are all not that different

Use this section to address concerns someone might have about YOU - which they think makes you unique, special, or have super powers? Explain to them that you are just a person. You are human just like them and if YOU can do it, so can they. It doesn't take magic or mystical wisdom to achieve success and victory.

Are you ready to unlock your full potential?
