My experience with John has been incredibly helpful for getting past some stubborn old habits and brain patterns. I've done hypnotherapy before, but I didn't get much from it. After 5 sessions with John, I don't know if it was the hypnosis or the conversations outside of it, I feel like I am in a much better space mentally. He helped me overcome strange thought patterns and mindsets that had left me a bit stumped previously. Immediately after the 5 sessions, I was unsure if anything was really accomplished, but as time went on I started to notice how much had changed. Daily activities weren't all a chore, I was able to set aside stress from work better, I felt better at accepting others. It was subtle, but overall, I feel I have stepped into a new version of myself. I am writing this review about 4 months since my last session because I wanted to see if the effects were lasting, and I would say they definitely are. This is not to say that every day is the best day I've ever lived, or that suddenly I'm the best person ever, but I definitely feel changed for the better. Additionally, John is an exceptional conversationalist and just a really interesting person to talk to. Often, I would tell him what I perceived was a problem, and he was able to reframe it in ways that I had never thought about, helping me to accept some parts of myself that I previously have been ashamed of. I highly recommend seeing John, especially if you feel like your at a point of stagnation from other therapy.

John is a gifted hypnotherapist who has the ability to put one at immediate ease with his open hearted, attentive manner. I came with the hope (but not the belief) that he could help me with my anxiety & IBS-like symptoms & expected to be there for the long haul. First session I left incredulous that my underlying hypervigilance & digestive issues had completely calmed & this sense of homeostasis has continued. His ability to listen & constantly check in to ensure he's clearly tracking what I am saying creates a safe 'refuge'. I felt seen, heard & validated (& transformed!) I highly recommend John

Age does not matter when doing Hypnosis. I say this because I am long past retirement age; I lost my profession of 30yrs because of the Pandemic so I decided to find a new career. I can say I feel much younger as a result and was taught great skills to help me navigate this gigantic event. I am still viable and I need and want to work. During the Hypnosis process I found replenishment and completed an important connection with "my teen inner-self” who had been disregarded and was still stuck in that hurt. My “outer-self “ had aged but my “inner-teen-self” still held the sting of those early teenage years. John helped me to navigate this interaction within my inner world. His superpower was also to help me understand aspects of my mind and personality. He listened supportively allowing me to uncover and release this very old aspect of my inner being. As a result I was able to connect with a frozen part of me who’s deflating energy was dragging me down. Being boosted from the Hypnosis process has blended and replenished me.I definitely recommend 5 stars for John Utter of Utter Hypnosis. Joanne M.

John is a gifted Hypnotherapist. He shows compassion, emotional intelligence and intuition. The process is so comfortable and safe, and the positive outcomes immediately noticeable. If you want a straight-forward approach to accessing your subconscious, there's no better methodology, and John is the perfect guide to getting there!

John makes hypnosis a safe and powerful tool to helping people travel through their pasts and discover what may be hanging them up in life. It was a truly incredible, life-changing experience. To be able to confront trauma in such a safe and protected environment is something that I think everyone should have the opportunity to do. Even if you are just curious as to the “why” of your behavior, I highly recommend it.

John is an excellent option for hypnotherapy. He is very easy to talk to, and to open up to about any issue that may be impeding your life. I couldn't recommend John highly enough!
Working with John has made such a difference for me! His gentle and knowledgeable approach put me at ease right away. John is kind, caring and listens with a profoundly compassionate presence. Our hypnotherapy sessions, although a little bit different in focus each time, dove deep and helped to dislodge fears and unresolved struggles I've had for years. Through my experience with Utter Hypnotherapy, I have seen dramatic improvements in my anxiety and stress levels, in my IBS symptoms, and in my relationship with myself. I would highly recommend this safe and versatile form of therapy to everyone!

Since then I've felt a profound peace and contentment I've never felt before.I give my highest recommendation for John.

John did an amazing job. During our hypnosis sessions he was empathic, kind, and thoughtful.He thought it would be in my best interest :(our sessions were about how to further develop medical intuition, animal communication and bringing psychic abilities to ta place where they are clear and eliminating some health issues),to include some coaching as well and provided great information.His kindness and desire for his clients' to get the best out of life is evident in everything he does.I thank you John. So do my clients and wild horses!

Hypnosis with John is like a sigh of relief from my anxiety. After our sessions, I feel more relaxed, confident, and clear headed. Before my sessions, I felt overwhelmed, stressed, and as if the world was out to get me. I will be coming back.

I'd read studies that found the most effective treatment for IBS was hypnosis. I approached John as a self confessed skeptic of hypnosis, but over two years of LHC had wreaked havoc on my already compromised digestive and immune systems. I had lost 30lbs, was down to around 15 items of food that I could tolerate eating and in spite of being on mast cell stabilizers and spending a fortune on antihistamines, enzymes, probiotics and supplements, I'd made slow progress and could not manage without any of them. I was desperate; so after reviewing John's recommendations, I took a leap into the unknown.In the initial free interview John spent quite a bit of time figuring out what it was like to be me (both emotionally and physically) to make sure of the best plan of action. John was honest and said he couldn't do miracles but after listening and assessing, he was confident he could help me in my situation.He was able to gently take me back to key childhood traumas, events in my life which had continuously (consciously or unconsciously) triggered anxiety and were most likely a big part of the cause of my hypersensitive digestive and immune systems.Going back in time helped me take back control of myself and my emotional well-being. Feeling stronger allowed my body to relax. It has helped me replace certain social anxieties with with a new sense of a stronger, more centred me.I now experience life from my own perspective and don't spend energy worrying about how I may appear to others. I thought I wasn't overly concerned before, but I now know the difference. I choose on my own terms what I fix about myself, and don't allow the real or imagined whims of others dictate how I feel about me.I'd explored other forms of self help in the past, but only seemed to grasp in theory what I now understand about myself.After just one session, in less than a week, my immune system has calmed down, my digestive system is starting to tolerate more food without the support of enzymes and for the first time in two years I am exuberantly hopeful for further improvements.During hypnosis I was relaxed, in full control and felt completely at home. I highly recommend John. He is emotionally invested in healing processes from a wholistic perspective. He is approachable, friendly, empathetic and respectful.

I would refer John Utter to any of my friends or family members. As a certified consulting hypnotist, I know how well trained John is. In addition, he is one of the very few people I trust when working on my own hypnotherapy needs.

What Is Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis to induce a relaxed and focused state for the client. In this state, it's possible for the hypnotherapist to help the client discover and resolve the root cause for a variety of issues.

For example, hypnotherapy can be effective for dealing with anxiety, pain, tinnitus, IBS, phobias, stress, migraines, and many other physical and psychological conditions. It can also be effective for weight loss and quitting bad habits like smoking or drinking.

If you're struggling with any of the above you may be an ideal candidate for hypnosis here in Bellingham, WA or as a virtual hypnosis client from anywhere in the world.

Hypnosis Misconceptions

Many people think of being hypnotized as some kind of stage trick or performance. Hypnotherapy bears no resemblance to stage hypnosis or to Hollywood movies that make hypnosis look like mind control.

In fact, hypnotherapy is a collaborative process where the client is in control throughout the entire session. Modern hypnotherapy is widely regarded as a powerful therapeutic tool for many psychological and physical ailments.

Hypnotherapy is a scientifically valid approach and has been shown to be extremely effective in studies published by PubMed and other major science and medical publications.
