A Little Hypnosis, LLC was started in 2022 by two hypnotherapists in the kink community.  At our core, we are a happily married couple who specialize in kink-aware hypnotherapy.  This started as a small service offered on a hidden page of our private practice hypnotherapy clinic, that soon became our main source of clientele.  Realizing that the need for kink-aware hypnotherapy was much greater than anticipated, we decided to work together to create a space where hypnosis could help others in the kink community at-large.  

Everything started with helping our kinky community engage in their Little Space and Diapers, as we are members of the AB/DL community. What we found is that the need went far beyond our friends that had issues being able to wet in a diaper or really feel the age they wished to be in a scene or life in general.  From there, we talked with more and more individuals that needed help with their sexual issues, past trauma, and so much more.  After talking about branching our kink related services out more, we finally decided to start a separate practice to cater to the needs of the whole kink community.

We are a gay couple, but we are more than capable and willing to work with anyone and everyone who has need!  You’ll notice in our services that we don’t just work with you on kink needs – but we want to help everyone with the issues that are having an effect on them.  So, we can certainly help you in your personal kink journey, but it doesn’t stop there.  We can work with you on stress management, traumatic childhood issues, weight management, grief, and so much more.  

We are both so excited to serve our community with these life-changing services,

About Hypnotherapy/Hypnosis

Hypnosis is a very misunderstood thing.  Many people have a view of hypnosis as a stage act, or someone standing in front of you with a pocket watch telling you that you’re getting sleepy.  Popular culture has taken many different aspects of a valid, scientific practice and made it a joke, or worse, something to fear.  Most people don’t understand the reality of it, which causes a lot of people to avoid it altogether.  
  • Hypnosis is a trance-like mental state in which people experience increased attention, concentration, and suggestibility. While hypnosis is often described as a sleep-like state, it is better expressed as a state of focused attention, heightened suggestibility, and vivid fantasies. People in a hypnotic state often seem sleepy and zoned out, but in reality, they are in a state of hyper-awareness.

  • It’s impossible to pinpoint exactly when Hypnosis was discovered, as it has been used almost as long as our recorded history! However, the study of hypnosis is well documented.  Take a look at research by Dr. James Braid, Franz Anton Mesmer, Dave Elman, and Milton Erickson.  These are all people that have helped to change the practice of Hypnosis.

  • For all Hypnosis, it all boils down to self-hypnosis.  Whether you’re guided by a hypnotist, working with a hypnotherapist, or using self-hypnosis techniques – it is YOUR BRAIN that is doing all the work!

  • Hypnotherapy is a form of hypnosis that utilizes the tenants of hypnosis to effect positive change, such as relief from trauma, mood stabilization, habit control, or countless other techniques to help people become their best self.

  • The term “hypnotherapy” is hotly contested in our current age.  This is because, while Hypnosis is accepted by most medical and mental health professionals, it is not a form of psychotherapy.  A hypnotherapist specializes in the unconscious mind.  Psychotherapy utilizes practices that are evidence-based medical and mental health treatment, where hypnotherapy uses scientifically proven methods of coaching and self-hypnosis to effect change.

  • Hypnotherapy, as a form of hypnosis, is sometimes simply referred to as Hypnosis for the sake of legal standing.  While some hypnotherapists are also medical doctors, psychotherapists, or social workers, this is not the case for a vast majority of those of us in the profession.  Therefore, it is important to note that hypnotherapy is NOT designed to treat, diagnose, or cure any medical or mental health condition.  

  • So what’s the difference between a hypnotist and a hypnotherapist?  There is no formal training required for someone to become a hypnotist.  The term “hypnotist” is used for anyone that uses hypnosis to put someone in trance.  However, a hypnotherapist has had formalized training in therapeutic uses of hypnosis, many with over 200 hours of hypnotherapy practice! 

Hypnotherapy Myths


Hypnosis is actually very common, and everybody experiences (to some degree) a hypnotic state throughout their life. For example, daydreaming is a form of the hypnotic state. Before sleep, just as you drift off, you are experiencing what’s referred to as a “hypnogogic” state. Right as you’re waking up, you’re experiencing a “hypnopompic” state. In all three cases, the brain is both active and able to receive input that has an effect on the unconscious mind.


The Unconscious Mind is there to protect you. Therefore, it’s important to realize that the suggestions given to an individual during hypnosis must pass through the unconscious mind’s filter. If it is something harmful, or something against your normal wishes, the suggestion is rejected and not acted upon.


Most people think hypnosis is being outside of yourself, or unable to function. In fact, during a session, a client is more focused and aware than in their “waking” state. Since hypnosis is a natural state of the mind, if given a few moments without the suggestions and intervention, the client will wake naturally on their own. So, Office Space is very much a fictional situation!


The truth is someone who lies when awake, can and likely will lie in trance. Secrets are often there to protect us, so the unconscious mind will not spontaneously share something that you don’t want said. Even given the suggestion to share your deepest secrets will not let them budge. You’re not under the control of the hypnotist, but instead you’re driving the car while the hypnotist is more like the GPS.


Dr. James Esdaile pioneered the idea of using hypnosis for abdominal surgery prior to the invention of anesthesia. I’d say that’s as far from pretending as you can get. While I’m sure there are plenty that do pretend in stage shows and party settings, it’s very hard to fake something when a scalpel is involved, don’t you think?


There is nothing mystical or metaphysical about it! As we mentioned, it’s a natural state and is something we do with ourselves regularly. I don’t have magic powers, I’m not guiding you to some transcendent place…just allowing your unconscious mind to learn, process, and act as it was intended! While some do seek hypnosis and hypnotherapy for spiritual reasons, it is very much a real, evidence-based practice.
