Lucy is often asked why she became a hypnotherapist. A number of years ago, while recovering from shoulder surgery and excessive pain, she woke up one morning muttering hypnosis. Not one to ignore such powerful ideas, she promptly started researching hypnosis schools in the Bay area. A few months later, she started her training at HCH Hypnotherapy Institute. This wasn’t totally out of the blue! When she was living in Japan in her 20’s and spending a lot of time on long plane flights, she developed a paralyzing case of fear of flying. During a trip state-side, she worked with a hypnotherapist for a week and was able to get back on the flight back to Japan and get through it easily. So, she knew hypnotherapy worked for her. She couldn’t believe she hadn’t thought of it sooner! As for why she eventually focused her work primarily on Medical Hypnotherapy, that came out of having and coping with Fibromyalgia, a chronic pain disorder, since she was 18.
