Paula Anderson, Hypnotherapist

paula-anderson-hyponotherapy-los-angelesFrom an early age Paula Anderson was fascinated with the deeper healing abilities of the mind. This has resulted in a lifelong exploration of the mind in relation to the human experience. She graduated from the California Institute of the Arts with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in cello performance. While there, she also practiced hypnosis, yoga, and meditation. Until his death in 2004, she practiced Buddhist meditation with Ed Wortz, co-founder with Ven. Dr. Thich Thien-An of the International Buddhist Meditation Center in Los Angeles.

This deeply informs her work as she brings a nonjudgmental and compassionate approach to her service with her clients. Paula is honored to have experienced phenomenal teachers of many forms throughout her life. It is her desire to pass on these learnings, big and small, to others that work with her. To that end, she founded Creative Mindwork Hypnotherapy, a successful private practice in Los Angeles, California. She has taught hypnosis seminars and assisted in training courses of Therapeutic Imagery at the Hypnosis Motivation Institute. She led a healing group at the Foothills Wellness Community in Pasadena, California, for many years for people with cancer and their caregivers.

Paula was also a staff hypnotherapist at Passages Malibu, a world-class alcohol and drug treatment center in Malibu, California, for many years. In doing this work, she helped many people heal from trauma, abuse, and difficult childhood and adult relationships and experiences to guide them on their path to recovery. Paula is certified in her field of expertise and upholds the high standards set forth by the National Guild of Hypnotists. She is also a certified practitioner of many other modalities, including UltraDepth Hypnosis, NLP, Guided Imagery, and EFT. She incorporates these modalities in all the work she does. She is also a certified practitioner and teacher of The Activation, a cutting-edge trauma healing modality, and holds workshops teaching this modality.

She has trained with the Michael Newton Institute and has been certified in his Life Between Lives techniques for past life regression and spiritual regression. She has also trained and been certified in Dolores Cannon’s Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy technique for past life regression and mind/body healing.
