Larry Garrett CHT

Larry Garrett began his career in Hypnosis in 1970 at a time when hypnosis was not fully accepted. He did his training at The National Hypnotic Institute in 1968-69. He accomplished so any areas of health and emotional improvements in himself he decided to learn all he could and create a career to help others. He has helped thousands in many areas of improvement. If you think of what your goal is, he most likely has come across it. Without judgments he will gently lead you into an improvement you didn’t know was possible. The words he uses are, “Think of what you would like to feel or experience when you walk out of my office.” This is the goal of success, not necessarily the label you offer him. Imagine what you would like to accomplish! Any goal, habit control, emotional improvements, confidence, sleeping, public speaking, and more.

What kind of emotion, feeling or experience would you need to achieve for success with your goal? This is the direction he chooses to accomplish your goal. Often, we think we need to be told what to do, i.e., You should eat less to lose weight, smoking is bad for you. These are antiquated methods of hypnosis. Think of any goal you may choose for hypnosis. You already know what to do. You don’t need to be told. However, your subconscious mind is in conflict with your logic. This implies one part of you knows what to do and the other part of you chooses to not do it. Hypnosis with Larry Garrett will be to educate your emotional mind to match the desires of the logical mind. If you were to quiet your mind and evaluate your goal, you will begin to observe there is a part of you who might be comfortable with the inadequacies or habit. Sounds strange until you attempt to change it and experience resistance in your success. With the method Larry Garrett teaches you resistance is put aside. Even the areas of health related issues, there is a resistance called doubt which will hold you back. Hypnosis can release this resistance. Larry has gone through cancer treatment and in the process of healing his medical team found it amazing how quickly he had healed and became cancer free. His methods were adopted by some of the medical staff. Since this experience he has had excellent success teaching cancer patient’s methods of healing. This journey of his experience with cancer has taught him much in the areas of healing from serious issues. If you are suffering from a chronic issue with your physician’s approval call and discuss your health challenges. Most likely you will improve with the use of hypnosis and Larry’s methods. If you have attempted hypnosis in the past and met with little or no success think of hypnosis as a learning process, not a treatment. Even with health issues you will be surprised how just learning to not fear or feel helpless you will get better. If you were to take music lessons and the teacher was not able to reach you it doesn’t imply you can’t learn, you just might need a different teacher. In 50 years, Larry Garrett has never advertised and operates one of the largest hypnosis and wellness center in Chicago.

They say until you have walked in someone else’s shoes you can’t relate to them. Larry has worn many shoes the past 50 plus years. He has worked with most of the issues, individuals have needing improvement. Whatever your goal may be know he will have your best interest in mind and expect to leave the office on your way to success. Remember, there are no judgements made toward any issue. Larry is seldom if ever surprised by a request. There are few who have a goal he has not experienced.

Hypnosis is a creative art which allows each hypnotist to have their own style or procedure for a session. When you make an appointment with Larry you will sit and spend the amount of time you need to discuss your goal. Everyone needs a different amount of time to speak of their goal for success. Feel comfortable with whatever you need. There is no rush. Hypnosis cannot be rushed. It took many years to have a behavior and it will take a while to teach the mind to release it.
