Recognizing and Responding to Adverse Reactions

Although rare, some people may experience adverse reactions to hypnosis. Adverse reactions may include anxiety, panic, or confusion. Recognizing and responding to adverse reactions is essential to ensure the person’s safety and well-being. Some strategies for identifying and responding to adverse reactions include:

  • Monitoring the client’s physical and emotional responses during hypnosis
  • Being prepared to terminate the session if necessary
  • Providing reassurance and support to the client
  • Referring the person to appropriate medical or mental health professionals if needed

By following ethical and safety guidelines and being prepared to recognize and respond to adverse reactions, a hypnotherapist can help ensure a positive and safe experience for the person being hypnotized.


In today’s fast-paced world, finding time for self-care and healing can often feel like a luxury. With busy schedules, long commutes, and various commitments, many individuals struggle to prioritize their well-being. However, thanks to advancements in technology, accessing transformative healing experiences has never been easier. Enter virtual hypnotherapy – a revolutionary approach to healing that transcends geographical barriers and offers unparalleled convenience.

Virtual hypnotherapy, conducted through platforms like Zoom, Skype, or other video conferencing tools, has emerged as a powerful tool for achieving deep relaxation, personal transformation, and healing. As a certified hypnotherapist, I have witnessed firsthand the profound impact virtual sessions can have on individuals seeking relief from a range of physical, emotional, and psychological ailments.

One of the most significant advantages of virtual hypnotherapy is its accessibility. Regardless of location – whether in bustling cities like Houston/Dallas/Austin/ San Antonio, or remote rural areas – clients can access quality hypnotherapy sessions from the comfort of their own homes. This eliminates the need for time-consuming travel and allows individuals to schedule sessions at times that suit their busy lifestyles.

But what makes virtual hypnotherapy truly remarkable is its ability to deliver results. Contrary to common misconceptions, virtual sessions are just as effective as in-person sessions, if not more so. Through the use of visualization techniques, guided imagery, and deep relaxation induction, clients can experience profound healing and transformation, often in a shorter period than traditional therapy methods.

One of the key tools I utilize during virtual hypnotherapy sessions is a pendulum, which serves as a visual aid to deepen relaxation and induce trance states. The visual aspect of the pendulum is particularly well-suited for virtual sessions, as clients can easily follow its movements on their computer screens, enhancing the overall therapeutic experience.

My journey into virtual hypnotherapy began with a terminally ill client who preferred to receive sessions from the comfort of his own home. Witnessing the positive impact virtual sessions had on his quality of life inspired me to expand my practice and make virtual hypnotherapy a primary offering. Since then, I have successfully conducted sessions for clients across various treatment areas, including smoking cessation, stress reduction, and personal growth.  I also am able to see current clients that I work with on an ongoing basis in New York City and Los Angeles.  If a client lives near me and wishes to have an in-person session, I accommodate their desires.

In conclusion, virtual hypnotherapy represents a powerful and accessible means of achieving healing and transformation from anywhere in the world. Whether you’re seeking relief from chronic pain, overcoming limiting beliefs, or simply looking to enhance your overall well-being, virtual hypnotherapy offers a convenient and effective solution.

If you’re ready to experience the life-changing benefits of virtual hypnotherapy, I invite you to schedule a session with me today. Together, we can embark on a journey of self-discovery, healing, and personal growth – all from the comfort of your own home.

In the realm of alternative healing modalities, hypnotherapy stands out as a potent tool for managing chronic pain. From the bustling streets of Dallas to the vibrant neighborhoods of Houston, individuals grappling with debilitating conditions such as cancer are increasingly turning to this holistic approach for relief.

Meet John*, a recent transplant from Dallas to Houston, whose life took an unexpected turn with a stage four cancer diagnosis. Despite the best efforts of modern medicine and a regimen of pain medications, John found himself enduring relentless discomfort that hindered his quality of life.

Enter hypnotherapy—a practice that delves deep into the subconscious mind to unlock the body’s innate ability to heal. As a certified hypnotherapist based in Houston, I had the privilege of working with John and witnessing firsthand the transformative power of this ancient practice.

Our sessions began with a simple yet profound intention: to alleviate John’s pain and restore a sense of balance and well-being to his life. Drawing upon metaphysical hypnosis techniques, I guided John through visualizations aimed at harnessing the body’s natural healing energies.

One of the key aspects of our sessions was the use of metaphorical imagery—a technique that allowed John to visualize an electrical light permeating every cell in his body, bathing him in a warm, healing glow. With each session, John reported a gradual but significant reduction in his pain levels, accompanied by a newfound sense of calm and inner peace.

What sets hypnotherapy apart is its holistic approach to healing. Rather than merely masking symptoms, it addresses the root cause of pain by tapping into the mind-body connection. For John, this meant not only finding relief from physical discomfort but also gaining a deeper understanding of the emotional and psychological factors contributing to his condition.

As John’s journey illustrates, hypnotherapy holds tremendous promise for individuals seeking alternatives to traditional pain management strategies. Whether you’re in Dallas or Houston—or anywhere in between—exploring the transformative potential of hypnotherapy could be the key to unlocking a life free from chronic pain.

If you or someone you know is struggling with pain, consider reaching out. I conduct virtual sessions and if you are near me in Houston.  The sessions can be in-person. Together, we can embark on a journey of healing and discovery, tapping into the remarkable power of the mind through hypnosis to overcome adversity and reclaim vitality.

Since 2017, I have been working with Paloma, an actress in New York City who came to me for relief of stress and anxiety.  She felt that this was holding her back from getting good acting parts.

After I moved to Houston, Paloma and I continued to work together remotely over Zoom. This has gone amazingly well.   Paloma’s condition has improved significantly, and we continue to work together remotely to this day.

Every time she is working on a new project, we have a session to ensure that she performs at her best.  I am proud that her career is flourishing because she is able to audition without the stress and anxiety that was holding her back.

Paloma is so appreciative of my services, and here is what she has to say about me:

“Ralph is very good at what he does. I used to see hypnotists back in California, but I remember the quality of the results being uneven. Ralph gave me solid tools to deal with some extremely upsetting situations over the past 7 months. I have found Ralph to be an empathic, perceptive practitioner with consistently strong instincts.

Not only that, he’s an easygoing and genuinely good guy who always makes me feel safe and comfortable enough to go on the hypnotic journey.

I definitely wouldn’t have made it through my first year in a full-time conservatory program (it was a demanding and stressful atmosphere) were it not for the series of hypnosis sessions that I did with him.”                                                                                       



Stress and Anxiety affect millions.  It is a condition that will interfere with your ability to live the best life possible.  This is a multibillion-dollar industry and one of the key solutions is harmful medications.  You may become permanently dependent on them, making you a slave to pharmacology.

However, there is a better way.  One that is safe and natural and will bring amazing results in the relief of stress and anxiety.

Hypnosis, is a safe and effective way yielding amazing results in the relief of stress and anxiety.

Positive Power Hypnotherapy uses a unique process that combines the conscious and subconscious to allow you to move forward in all areas of your life. Through hypnosis, we redesign your mind so that when negative thoughts arise, they are automatically replaced with positive ones.


The mind is made up of 15% conscious mind and 85% subconscious mind.  We learn in the conscious mind, and the information is permanently recorded in the subconscious mind.

Many times, we have learned to react to circumstances and situations in a negative way, causing stress and anxiety.  This has been recorded in your subconscious mind so every time the situation arises it creates negative feelings.  Hypnosis will change the way you react to negative situations and will create new positive behaviors that will relieve stress and anxiety.  We do this through Mindset Transformation Hypnosis.


Mindset Transformation Hypnosis will help to motivate and build self-confidence, allowing you to combat mental blocks, fears, negative self-talk and focus issues.

Experience a life-altering mind transformation through our three-session program.  In the first session, we delve deeply into the root causes of the issues impeding your full potential, pinpointing them within your subconscious.  By isolating and addressing negative beliefs, we instill empowering beliefs and desires, fostering the foundation for you to evolve into your best self,

In the second session, we target and eliminate the unwanted beliefs, feelings, and attitudes that act as barriers to your progress.  You will undergo an experience that ignites an electrifying sensation from the crown of your head to the tips of your toes.  This process transforms every cell in your body, replacing negativity with an overwhelming sense of positivity.

Our final session seals the door on negative thoughts and mental programming, perpetuating an environment that nurtures an ongoing increase in your positive mindset.  This continuous mental and emotional reinforcement enhances your strength, power, and overall well-being.

Hypnosis is powerful, and we are achieving amazing results that will enable you to unleash your full potential and live happy, joyous, free and full of positive energy and provide relief from stress and anxiety.


I have been very successful at helping people quit smoking.

I have developed a unique and powerful hypnotic induction, achieving amazing results. My clients are able to move forward and automatically let go of negative thoughts, eliminating the need to smoke.

The subconscious mind will be reordered so that when thoughts of smoking arise, they are fleeting, and are automatically replaced with positive thoughts of the smoke-free life you desire.

You will become a nonsmoker.

Here is what my clients are saying about my smoking cessation program:

“I smoked for 25yrs a pack and a half to 2 packs a day. I went to his session kinda not knowing what to expect. Wasn’t even sure I was ready to quit. Smoking was my best friend. I haven’t smoked for over a month. He was kind, had GREAT tips, and most of all I was completely comfortable during my session. Which made my mind switch to a nonsmoker. UNBELIEVABLE that he helped me accomplish my goal. I would recommend Mr. Gonzalez to anyone. Thank you sir for changing my life.”

Danny White

“I came with a 30 year 2 pack a day smoking habit. I wanted to quit for myself no Dr.  telling me that I had to. So far it has been great. All I know is today I’m not smoking, I’ll deal with tomorrow’s cigarette urge tomorrow. One day I won’t even think about then any more. Plus Ralph is a great guy that is in this to help people which made this easier!”


“200 days smoke-free. Ralph is a super nice and supportive therapist, who not only helped me to quit smoking, but I also went through a breakup exactly one week after I had quit for the first time and was a complete mess. I broke down and smoked a whole pack that day, but haven’t smoked again ever since, thanks to his coaching and follow-up. Make sure you do your research on hypnotherapy because it’s not magic, but if you are really ready to quit, Ralph is your guy!”

I was asked to visit an elderly man who had been in the hospital for a while and was unable to sit up or walk.  After a few hypnosis sessions he was able to sit up and walk.  I believe to be a good hypnotherapist, one must extremely care about the client.  Sometimes all people need is love and good hypnosis and amazing things will manifest.

His doctor was so impressed that he came for a session just to understand what I had done.  I explained to him that the power of the subconscious mind is powerful, and a person can do anything with the right hypnotic induction.  I also told him that caring and showing love goes a long way.

Following is a review form his wife, Mrs. Gramer:

“My husband has been in the hospital for 90 days, 4 surgeries, tremendous pain from a horrific wound in his groin, very weak and depressed. He has had a wound vac on since November 10, 2019. He walked into the hospital and can’t get up by himself and definitely is not able to walk.

My husband and I were very impressed with our first visit. Very professional and caring and explains things very well.

He has slept the last 2 nights, had less pain and almost sat up on the side of the bed by himself. He took 20 steps with a walker 2 days ago and walked again today.

Best money I ever spent.”
