COMING SOON: Interview With James M. Vera (BCH)
About James M. Vera
James has been a practicing hypnotist for the past 7 years and has an online practice (onlinehypnosisnow.com) as well as seeing clients face to face in his Cheshire, Connecticut USA office.
He started his interest in the mind at age 10 when he started his first business called Magic by Jimmy, party time, dinnertime, anytime. He was an amateur magician and performed at kids’ birthday parties and private events.
He left “magic” behind, so he thought and developed other interests and then when he was 30 years old he discovered a book called the Magic of Believing by Claude Bristol and experimenting with reprogramming his own subconscious mind.
Then years later he became a Respiratory therapist. He spoke with a woman who said she had stopped smoking for over 20 years using hypnosis. He was very skeptical and started researching how to become a hypnotist to help other people stop smoking. From that point his practice expanded, and he has been on a path of continued learning and studying with many of the great hypnotists in our profession like Mike Mandel, Dan Candell, Jason Linette, Michael C. Anthony and many others. He enjoys learning about hypnosis and feels like he is like Alice who jumped into the rabbit hole and it just continues and on with always something exciting to learn. He uses humor and a matter of fact style to help his clients get to their goals as rapidly as their minds will allow them. After experiencing over 10 years of his own psychotherapy he believes change does not have to be that way and can be rapid and permanent.
