“One Session Emotional Relief”


A discussion of a hypnotherapy strategy that works every time with a qualified subject.


You will learn:

·       How to Qualify

·       How to Maximize Results When Others Fail

·       The Model that always insures success

·       The Steps you MUST take to Insure Outstanding and Permanent Results

·       Wrapping up the Session With Power Suggestions


With over 34 years as a hypnotherapist, Dr. Gagnon currently has his home and office in the Prescott Arizona area and is always available for consultation to fellow therapists.


Known as "The Problem Solver"
by his clients Dr. Leo Gagnon, is indeed a Master at Hypnotherapy



Leo Gagnon, Ph.D.

The Psychology Department at Springfield College in Springfield, Massachusetts first drew Leo Gagnon's interest to the incredible potential of the mind. Much of his undergraduate work in psychology and sociology was later accomplished at Glendale College and Arizona State University. Years later the American Institute of Hypnotherapy awarded him his doctorate. AIH is a California State authorized school offering extensive specialized non-traditional hypnotherapy education.

He is a member of prestigious associations such as the National Board of Hypnotic Anaesthesiology, the National Guild of Hypnotists and the International Association for Counselors and Therapists. He is President Emeritus of the Arizona Society for Professional Hypnosis serving in that post for three years.

Anyone researching Dr. Gagnon's accomplishments will find that in order to help his patients he instills within them the single most motivating factor, that being the power of thought. He believes that answers to specific problems lay "in the way we each create our thoughts, how we store our memories and how we use those thoughts in creating our reality."

With almost 30 years of research and applied experience communicating with the minds of over 29,372 people, Dr. Leo Gagnon continues to assist others at his office in Prescott and by way of his national telephone practice, his books, tapes and, as a nationally known speaker and his educational seminars.

Along with being a CHt, I am also a licensed Life & Health insurance agent in Arizona, and have over 10 years experience helping clients find their best options.  

My job isn’t to ‘sell you’ insurance, my job is to provide consultation on plans, and then find and tailor the product that best suits your needs and budget.

Special note – for those that qualify, there is a little know tax law that may save you thousands! The average savings is over $3,500 a year!!
