Over 30 years of assisting a world-wide clientele
Conducted more than 25,000 hours of private sessions
Specializing in helping men and women who demand only the best
Because of the nature of hypnosis, where much of the work is done with the clients eyes closed, I've found hypnotherapy works extremely well over the telephone too.
I've been very fortunate in my more than 30 year hypnotherapy career. I devote about half my time to area of public speaking and conducting seminars. I work with foreign speaking audiences in countries around the world using the unique simultaneous translation techniques I've developed. The remainder of my time is devoted to private sessions in person and my phone.
The private clients I work with are committed to work toward a solution to their problems and understand that it could take a few weeks or, in some cases, several months for them to reach their goals.
If you are not in the Sacramento area you'll simply need a telephone headset or speaker phone and be in a place where you will not be disturbed during the sessions.
"I want to express my sincere appreciation for the quality of care you provided me in our private telephone consultations. Not only do you have incredible hypnosis skills, but more importantly, you conveyed a deep sense of regard for me as a person. You always took the time necessary to insure the real problems were addressed. You have been a very important influence in my personal recovery. Thank you so very much!"
--Jerry White Psy.D., LMFT La Mesa, CA
“We had three private sessions concerning my needle phobia and it really paid off. Today I went for my blood work. My blood pressure was high when I first went into the office but listening to your tape and drinking 2 bottles of water as you suggested made the experience almost delightful. Thanks for your help. By the way, I listen to your stress reduction tapes religiously and the sound of your voice now lulls me into wonderful relaxation."
“I am a non-smoker and I feel great! All the suggestions you gave me during our last session are working for me. I have no cravings or symptoms of withdrawal. Working with you has empowered me in more ways than one. I am amazed at how quickly stress is defused with just one deep breath. You have helped me even more that I had hoped. I can't thank you enough.”
--Nancy Clifford, Canada
I'll never be able to repay you for your insight into my panic attacks. I had been to medical doctors who told me nothing was wrong. I went to psychologists, chiropractors, acupuncturists. I tried all sorts of medicines, vitamins and herbs and never felt relief. From our first session together I felt like I finally found someone who understood me and knew how to help solve my problem and that I wasn't going crazy. Talking to you was so easy. I felt like you were a trusted friend from the first time we talked. It's been over 6 months now since we finished our phone sessions and I've never had another panic attack. My anxiety is completely under control with the self-hypnosis you taught me. I feel free and alive again! God bless you Dr. Ken."
-- Janice Schindler, Atlanta, GA
"Our coaching sessions helped me to triple my income in 4 months. I couldn't be more pleased and I thank you for helping me to achieve a real break through in my attitude about life."
-- George Gorgas, Colorado Springs, Co
“Today marks the end of our private sessions, and I no longer have a fear of small spaces and heights. This fear used to limit my activities (skiing, flying, elevators, etc,..) and leave me with a terrible feeling of swallowing my tongue and my throat tightening up. I have now confronted my fears with your help, and put an end to the anxieties I once felt. In addition, to relieving these fears, you have also succeeded in dramatically lowering my stress levels and increasing my motivation. Best of all you have given me the ability to keep this positive feeling forever through self-hypnosis. You are a truly gifted therapist and I really appreciate all of your help. With the tools and techniques you have taught me, I now look forward to a stress free, productive life style where I can confront and conquer anything that comes my way. Thank you for everything, I look forward to trying your other CD's soon. (Especially the weight loss and golf!) Sincerely,"
-- Larry L. Lantis, San Jose, CA
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for giving me my life back. After my car accident I was put on many very strong pain medications...including oxycontin...to cope with the pain. After many years of taking them I was addicted and they were ruining my life. But, thanks to you I am now able to live my life FREE from painkillers. And somehow through our hypnosis sessions I don't feel the pain anymore. You are a great man and I thank you."
-- Dean Schiller
"Just wanted to email you and let you know how things are going. I've been using the self hypnosis that you taught me a lot. I usually do it once in the morning before I leave the house, then once in the middle of the day on my lunch break and for a few minutes before I go to sleep, and I am noticing more and more each day the changes it's bringing about in the way I feel, act, and think. Your program of private sessions has helped me TREMENDOUSLY and I cannot express how much I am thankful for finding your site and for you helping me change my life. I would suggest this program to anyone who wants to be proactive in making positive changes in their life, not only socially but also professionally. I honestly cannot thank you enough for all you've done for me."
“I am living a much better life now since we did those private sessions for my social anxiety. I have survived the entire boys’ basketball season, going to airports, and much, much more. I don’t understand it, but the tools you have given me all seem to work. Thank you.”
"I want to tell you that I already miss our weekly sessions, and I definitely see the positive results from my sessions to work on my attitude and overall way I choose to interact with my co-workers, clients and others. Each day on my morning drive into work, I say my affirmations and make a point of being kind, understanding, patient, likeable, friendly and approachable with everyone I meet and exhibit outstanding people skills all day long. This is really amazing because I was once told I had 'no people skills" by a co-worker. Thanks so much Dr. Grossman for the positive change you helped me achieve and I look forward to continued improvements in my life."
My son Michael wished to improve his baseball skills including focusing on the pitcher, coach and base running. Since he's started your private sessions and CD program, Michael has listened to one of your CD's each day. In mid July after more than a month of using the CD's, Michael attended the University of Alabama baseball camp for high school age boys. During the week long camp, Michael had one of the highest batting averages out of about 100 campers. His base stealing was among the best and he was probably in the top ten percentile during the speed test. Although, baseball for him is over this season, we feel he's made substantial progress. Michael returned to school to start his Junior year almost two weeks ago. I've noticed him bring books home and immediately studying after dinner. I asked him a few days ago if he felt your Concentration and Memory CD's were aiding him in his studies and he was enthusiastic in his response. "Without a doubt"! He said he's more attentive towards his teachers and seems to immediately perk up whenever a teacher begins to teach. He has pages of notes from class...something I've never seen him have...and is motivated towards his classes. It's now football season and Michael is playing as usual. He didn't play a defensive position last year and is earmarked to be the starting defensive tackle. Obviously his speed and quickness is paying off. He's seems to be calmer than before and has matured this summer. Your Custom CD program is working and we cant wait for baseball season to come back around. Thanks for your help in giving Michael the means to achieve his goals.

Each session is scheduled for one hour.
Sessions are usually held once a week, but sometimes clients in crisis may need more than one session or a longer session.
The number of sessions required depends on the problem or issue for which the client is seeking help. It also depends on how long the client has had the issue or problem, the clients motivation to change, their ability to follow instructions and their responsiveness to hypnosis.
No. I don't work with pedophiles and prefer to not work with clients with multiple personality disorder.
I love children and find that they respond very well to hypnosis but I don't prefer to work with real young children. There are hypnotherapists who are more suited to working with 5 to 8 year olds. I do enjoy working with mature adolescents and teens with great success.
Some clients are just not suited to my personality and my more scientific and conservative type of empowering hypnotherapy. For example, I don't do crystal ball healing, tarro cards, nor do I swing a pocket watch in front of my client's face or that sort of thing.
That depends on your goals and your reasons for seeking services. I've worked with almost every kind of problem and have created specific programs for most issues.
I offer special discount package programs with fixed prices for weight loss, smoking cessation, sports improvement, anxiety, stress management, addictions and many other issues because I know exactly which direction the therapy will take based on working with thousands of clients. If the client follows my directions the issue will be resolved in the shortest possible time at the least expense.
Unlike many psychotherapists I don't want life-long clients and don't want my clients dependant on me. I want to empower my clients so they can rely on themselves.
In the long run hypnotherapy is much faster and much less expensive than traditional "talk" therapy which takes years, often involves medications and often nothing is resolved.
If during the evaluation we decide to work together we'll agree elither to work on a session-by-session basis...a discounted package program that includes session time and CDs.
If the sessions are by phone I pay for domestic and Canadian phone charges and initiate the calls. With the reduction in International long distance charges during the past few years the cost for international calls will be minimal. Check with your long distance carrier. You can even use Skype and/or Microsoft Messenger for International calls.
Clients are instructed and coached in the proper use of self-hypnosis so that they'll have a tool they can use for the rest of their life to help them maintain their therapeutic benefit.
No. I'm good, but I'm not God. I cannot guarantee human behavior. My client's results depend on their motivation to change and their ability to follow my simple instructions.
I expect the courtesy of a 48 hours notice, otherwise that session is charged unless I can fill the time slot.
Clients start by ordering an initial evaluation session.
You'll get my undivided attention for one hour along with the opportunity to discuss your problem/issue/goal. During your initial session you'll be evaluated for your hypnotizability and you'll be given an estimate of what it will take to accomplish your goal. You'll determine if you want to make a commitment to me as your hypnotherapist and I'll determine whether or not I want to make a commitment to work with you. If we have a meeting of the minds we'll set up your session plan and schedule your next session.
