Ashley’s class on self-hypnosis informed and enlightened me about the power and effectiveness of deep relaxation, self-awareness, clear intention, and hypnosis’ ability to influence the sub-conscious. The techniques she taught us allowed me to explore, understand, and begin to redirect deep-seated, unconscious behaviors that I have been struggling with for decades. Her approach is welcoming, educational, hands-on, and supportive.

Wyatt has helped me shift negative self-talk, embrace deep change, and find a level of acceptance and peace with myself that I had not thought possible.

Ashley helped me dislodge the ways that I was keeping myself stagnant, and build a self-acceptance and understanding that is now the bedrock of a fulfilling and inspiring creative life—a life which is more connected, loving, compassionate, and free.

I went to see Wyatt without much hope of hypnotherapy working, but it was an incredible experience and I jammed as many sessions as possible into my limited time in Asheville. Wyatt was terrific helping me with generalized anxiety as well as family issues that I thought were packed away very tightly. It was such a positive experience I had my adult son and my husband go for sessions. I have noticed a considerable improvement in my ability to stay calm in situations that usually cause me a great deal of panic and anxiety. I can’t wait to be in Asheville again to get a “tune up.”
