Patricia Reynolds Sørbye
is a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, educated at Hypnotherapy Training Institute of Northern California, celebrating 45 years of state licensing. At HTI, she studied with masters in the field -- including Marleen Mulder, Randal Churchill, Gil Boyne, Dr. John Butler, and Ormond McGill. In 2020, Patricia was invited to become an Instructor on the faculty of Hypnotherapy Training Institute. Since then, she has also been elected to the Board of Directors for the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners, and in the summer of 2022, was chosen as Chair of the ACHE Board of Directors.

Patricia is certified through the American Council Of Hypnotist Examiners, (certificate #HT 105-107) and is dedicated to maintaining a practice in keeping with the A.C.H.E.'s Code of Ethics. She is also a pretty good listener, and an empathic, color-grapheme synesthete.

Patricia smoked cigarettes for many years, and gave up smoking with hypnotherapy, on February 7th, 2004. As a result, she's got an insider's perspective on the process, and is pleased to help anyone who is ready to stop smoking.

In July of 2008, Patricia was given a diagnosis of breast cancer. Over the nine months that followed, she experienced surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. With focused hypnotic preparation, she was able to have a reasonably favorable experience, and reported no pain, no nausea and no radiation burns throughout the entire process. Currently, she's getting stronger and stronger, and remains happily cancer-free.

The human mind is so capable. So much of what we want to do can be accomplished with the help of the subconscious mind. With a small amount of effort, we access potential that is almost without limit -- and tap into a wealth of unique resources to accomplish what we can imagine.
