Live The Life You Have Imagined…

Hi, I’m Kelly McLoughlin and I consider it a wonderful privilege to help people improve their lives with hypnotherapy. If you are reading this right now then my bet is: you are tired of the suffering and are ready to make some changes in your life. I am committed to helping my clients experience profound and positive change in their lives. I offer programs that combine Hypnotherapy with Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) for accelerated results. My practice is in Ashland, OR. I cater to the Rogue Valley.

hypnosis can stop sufferingWhat is Hypnotherapy Used For?

People seek out hypnosis for many reasons, here in Ashland, OR I see people for all sorts of issues including: quit smoking, lose weight, confidence, motivation, sleep, insomnia, stress management, nail biting, sports performance and improvement, panic attacks, phobias and fears, public speaking, self-improvement, panic disorder, regression therapy, memory improvement, study habits, surgery preparation and recovery, improved creativity, pain management, illness and ailments, diseases, accelerated healing, performance anxiety, stuttering, fear of flying, bad habits, concentration, guilt, grief, sadness, procrastination, relationship issues, sexual issues, natural child-birth, self empowerment and natal/past life regression therapy.

Will I bark like a dog or cluck like a chicken?

Let me guess: you’ve seen a stage show where a hypnotist made people do all these crazy things. The stage hypnotist carefully selects his subjects and he chooses people he knows WILL bark like a dog. They will because somewhere inside them is a part that loves to entertain.

Hypnosis can not make you do something that is against your morals or ethics. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis, in truth, and no hypnotist can make you do something that you really don’t want to do. You have to want the change, agree with the change, and then hypnosis is an instrument for helping make that change better, faster, and permanent.

The Proof is in the Pudding!


After a series of sessions with Kelly, I can look back and say that I am so pleased with the changes that have come about in my life. I’ve broken through limiting beliefs, opened up to new possibilities and come up with lots more topics I want to work on with Kelly! Hypnosis can be a powerful tool in understanding our motivations, releasing the past and removing obstacles to growth, but I’ve also had a hypnosis appointment (with a different practitioner in Ashland) that didn’t accomplish any of that. I think the difference with Kelly is that she is a wonderful listener, and she is tuned into staying open to the solutions your subconscious presents. She crafts scripts “homework” for you to practice to engrain new beliefs, and she truly cares that you experience results. I can’t say enough about her warmth and skill. If you’re looking to become a better you, go see her!

Calling all skeptics! I approached Kelly to help me stick with a creative goal and develop the confidence I lacked as an artist. After just the first session I shed so many subconscious ways I was sabotaging myself and made more progress than I had towards completing my goal than I had in months.  Kelly is a thoughtful, serious practitioner who explained exactly what hypnotherapy aims to do, then she set about crafting customized sessions for me targeting specific issues we discussed beforehand. Needless to say, the sessions were really relaxing and I always left feeling lighter, more excited and in control. Can’t recommend Kelly enough–I made more sense out of pesky habits and negative thinking with hypnotherapy than conventional talk therapy ever did! It’s fascinating stuff.

When I’m unmotivated, stuck or feel swallowed by life, I have found Hypnotherapy quick and painless to pull me back into the moment, restoring me to a place of possibility. Every hypnotic event has been pleasurable and productive. I have enjoyed my relationship with each Hypnotherapist. However, my hypnotic experience with Kelly with whom I have had two sessions is unique. The change I wanted came about instantaneously and has had comprehensive affect over my well being.

While in trance if Kelly made a suggestion that triggered a defense mechanism or I thought that was the direction she was heading, my resistance would have brought me to full awakening and the sessions would not have been the therapeutic success they have been. Kelly intuitively knew when she had approached that boundary. I don’t think she was conscious of that. There was be a fleeting, gentle pause, as if she were listening to a *knowing*, in her polished, elegantly delivered technique. Each time this happened she resumed with precisely what I was able to accept as truth. This supported me in deep trance. Kelly’s declarations crystallized the birth place of the best current version of me. I was able to untangle barriers defending chaotic thinking patterns keeping me from considering and accepting new, more relevant paths.

Kelly is an earnest, generous, person with a sweet functional innocence about her. This is what makes her an exceptional Hypnotherapist willing to embrace *whispers of knowing* and to risk course correction to accommodate the needs of her client. She remains by your side throughout your session. I have purchased her CD’s which I find soothing and effective. I highly recommend Hypnotherapy, with Kelly. Welcome to Ashland, Kelly!

Yes! Hypnosis Can Help the Cancer Patient

In my hypnotherapy practice I have helped many cancer patients come to terms with their disease and lead a happier life. I have also seen people get better. In his fabulous book, “Getting Well Again,” O. Carl Simonton, MD talks about his cancer clinic and how he had his patients use visualization techniques to rid themselves of cancer. I use the same practices that Carl used and have seen amazing results. A few years ago I helped a woman with an aggressive brain tumor. The tumor was growing and growing and she was given less than a year. After 8 weeks of hypnosis the MRI showed that the tumor had shrunk. The last I heard she was still alive 3 years later and driving her car again which she had been told would never happen. Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool that cancer patients can use in conjunction with professional medical treatment.

I raise my hat to all of the Caregivers who are mostly overlooked for the amount of work that they put forth to the people they are caring for. We are talking about husbands, wives, friends, nurses, social workers, doctors, children, siblings and all the others that give of themselves so unselfishly. These wonderful people could definitely benefit from a hypnosis session or two. I help caregivers deal with stress, overcome burnout, let go of angry or guilty feelings, communication and anything else that comes up. I do offer group sessions for caregivers at a reduced price. read more →

Gastric Bypass Hypnosis Surgery

With the end of the year fast approaching many of us are thinking about new beginnings and those New Year’s resolutions. I declare that the New Year is my favorite holiday, if you can call it a holiday. Christmas is over (what a relief. I know, “Bah humbug”). For me its about making some changes and seeing how I can be better than before. This year I swear I’m going to lose those extra pounds and start exercising more, and I think I’ll add juicing to my list!

Every new year I see a steady stream of people come in for hypnosis to help themselves achieve the goals that they’ve set for their betterment. Stop smoking, lose weight, gain self confidence, make more money etc. Hypnotherapy makes the journey a bit easier and I say, “why make it hard when you don’t have to.”

Weight loss is huge in the new year, people are more motivated to take charge of their health and make some changes. This year I’m introducing a brand new weight loss package for people wanting to lose more than 20 lb’s. I’ve tried it on a few clients already and have had some wonderfully successful results. What is it??

Gastric Bypass Hypnosis Surgery! Yep, a revolutionary process that can help people with problems losing weight. You can actually lose the weight and keep it off. The process uses clinical hypnosis to replicate the effects of actual surgical gastric banding, but without the wide array of side effects that the surgery can cause. Wow!

The package consists of 4 sessions, each lasting about an hour tailored to each person’s specific weight loss goals. The sessions are fun and inspiring, and don’t be surprised if all of a sudden you feel like eating healthy fruits and veggies and moving your body more.

So…. What are you waitng for? If not now, then when?

reprogram beliefs with hypnosis

A client came in with a tremendous fear of driving and cars in general. She has had this fear all her life. She told me that over the years she had been in multiple accidents and had been hit twice as a pedestrian on two different occasions. She was not at fault in these accidents, the drivers were. Now I ask you, what are the odds that someone gets hit twice as a pedestrian – very slim. The odds of getting hit once are pretty slim but twice? During the hypnosis sessions that followed she mentioned that her father was a surgeon, and back when she was a kid he would tell all of his children horror stories of the people who had come in for surgery after being in car accidents. He would talk about the loss of limbs, disfiguration of faces and bodies, people who were paralyzed for life, and on and on. In his mind he was trying to teach them about cars and driving and the implications of what could happen if they were careless, but for my client he terrified her to the point that she did not learn to drive until her 30’s and that was out of pure necessity. Now in her late 60’s she is still terrified of cars and what can happen. This belief that was instilled into her as a child by her well meaning father has tormented her her whole life and that belief has created the accidents that have happened to her over the years. “What I feared has come upon me; what I dreaded has happened to me. – Job 3:25.”

This is a great story to emphasize just how powerful our beliefs are and how they affect our lives. But, so many of the beliefs we harbor are not as obvious. Here is an example of a belief that most of us have: money doesn’t grow on trees, you have to work hard to make money, rich people are snobs, it’s not spiritual to have money, you need money to make money. Can you think of a few more? I’m sure you can. So how do you think a person’s life would be if they believed in any of the above statements? Do you think they’d be rich? Absolutely not. They would be struggling month after month. “What you believe to be true will manifest for you.”

What are some of the beliefs that you are carrying around that are causing unwanted behaviors and results in your life? Another client watched her younger sibling die. She felt so guilty that she was spared and she adopted the belief that she didn’t deserve to live either and manifested a terminal disease.

The good news is… I know you’ve been waiting for the solution… you can easily change your beliefs with hypnosis. It is the quickest and easiest way. In six sessions you can be free from the suffering. What are you waiting for?? Call me today for a free telephone consultation and let’s start reprogramming those beliefs.
