Shawn Mercer is a hypnotherapist at Satori and graduated from the well-established Coastal Academy of Hypnotic Arts and Sciences. She studied under Leslie McIntosh, a highly respected hypnotherapist, who has revolutionized this field by adding techniques that enhance healing in clients. Hypnosis is a state of increased suggestibility and concentration where the conscious critical mind becomes an observer, and allows direct communication with the subconscious mind. Hypnosis can create new positive feelings and emotions to replace specific negative ones that the client might have gathered up, unknowingly, over the years.
