About Douglas Moir, C.Ht.

After over 25 years of mentoring and counseling my staff during my professional positions in 'Corporate America', I decided to follow my passion and desire for a more meaningful role by dedicating myself to a career that enables me to focus entirely on guiding others toward achieving their personal goals.

I maintain an office in Long Beach, CA and am committed to providing therapeutic hypnosis which reflects the highest standards of excellence, ethics, professionalism and client care in a confidential, compassionate, safe, non-threatening and non-judgmental environment.

Experience

My approach to therapy is based in a foundation of life experience which combines Kappasinian theory, common sense, a successful history of assisting others overcome challenges, limiting beliefs and a firm belief that we all possess the ability to make positive changes in our lives. A respect for the life experiences of others has contributed to my overall success in professional and personal relationships. Inside each of us is the everyday wisdom to create a healthy, happy and fulfilling life. My therapeutic processes provide a safe and natural way to access your mind's own healing power.

I maintain a private practice in Long Beach, California, and am active as a public speaker. I had the privilege of introducing the study of hypnosis and hypnotherapy…its principles, theories and techniques to over 1200 students around the world while tutoring and mentoring their hypnosis education as a former staff member and guest instructor of the Hypnosis Motivation Institute.
