Claire Hester holds an MA in Marriage and Family Therapy, is a certified clinical hypnotherapist and a graduate of the Hypnosis Motivation Institute, the first accredited college of hypnotherapy.
Claire Hester is a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, and the American Hypnosis Association.
She has been honored by the City of West Hollywood, receiving The Andrew Stark Warrior Award for her dedication and devotion to the HIV/AIDS population. Her certifications include guided imagery, handwriting analysis, and work in alcohol and drug addiction.
Claire’s personal journey of self-recovery and discovery began in 1996, leading her to hypnotherapy and its ability to correct unwanted behaviors and thought patterns. Her knowledge of hypnotherapy has led her to a dedicated life and professional career of facilitating change for others.
In her work as a therapist, Claire became fascinated with some people who were able to resolve issues quickly, where others appeared ‘stuck’ or unable to resolve deeply rooted problems. Her quest for answers led to her discovery of hypnotherapy and the very power of the subconscious mind.
Claire’s form of therapy is solution focused. Aligned with her unique ability at instinctively sensing the problems or blocks, she uses skilled relaxation techniques to change behavioral problems that no longer serve, creating an energetic change and behavioral balance.
