About Me

Robert Carlson, Certified Hypnotherapist
Hypnosis La Jolla

My long term interest in hypnosis began in my late teens. One of my uncles was a Psychologist who in addition to his professorship had opened a practice, in which he used biofeedback and hypnosis. He taught me the fundamentals of these techniques, further inspiring me to pursue my interest in hypnosis. Soon I was hypnotizing friends and acquaintances.

My post college and graduate school background have been in both health care and the corporate world. After having received a B.S. degree in Nutrition at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst I worked in the health care industry as a Dietitian, counseling clients and patients in healthful eating habits. My study of hypnosis continued. During this time I also counseled clients in weight loss, conducted workshops on the subject, and incorporated hypnosis as part of therapy. Several years later I received my Masters in Business Administration from Duke University, after which I transitioned into management positions in the corporate world.

I am certified by the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association and have been trained in Advanced Hypnosis techniques. ¬†At Hypnosis La Jolla I am committed to utilizing the latest and most effective hypnotherapy techniques to produce the most meaningful and positive effects in my client’s lives.

I also conduct 2 hour workshops (for groups) in several subjects including:

  • The basics of hypnosis, for those individuals who may be interested in learning more about its benefits and applications.
  • Weight control and healthy eating habits for individuals interested in losing weight and maintaining healthful diets.
  • Stress management and confidence building for individuals who want to reduce stress in their lives, improve their confidence and boost self-esteem.
