Ask A Question


I am able to answer questions relating to psychological and clinical hypnosis, self-hypnosis, trance states, and related areas (NLP, EMDR, African Voudoun, and the demonstration of hypnosis-related phenomena).

Experience in the area

Principal investigator of a Fulbright-funded study examining the immunomodulative effects of hypnosis on an HIV-positive population (PI of Song HIV Lab, Makerere University Hospital). A founding member of the Institute for Mind/Body Research and Education, I am responsible for training over 3000 people every year in advanced hypnosis techniques. A research psychologist, I examine mental control (with a special interest in hypnosis) through experimental and neuroscientific methods. Currently, I hold membership in a variety of lay-hypnosis organizations, as well as the American Psychological Association and its Division 30.
