Alena Guest opened her private practice as a Clinical Hypnotherapist in 2007, after having graduated from the Hypnotherapy Academy of America, where she received comprehensive training in her field. That training, coupled with her experience, has allowed her to contribute to the better health and well being of hundreds of clients, in the form of: anxiety reduction, behavior modification, assertiveness building, trauma relief, phobia elimination, chronic pain diminution; insomnia relief; weight loss and smoking cessation. A distinctive feature of Ms. Guest’s practice is that her special field of concentration is preparation for surgery and post- operative healing.
Alena has collaborated extensively with colleagues and medical specialists in her community, believing that cross referrals, of this kind, best serve the client. Her interests lie in the greater field of integrative medicine and she continues to expand her education. She has been fortunate to be mentored by many outstanding leaders in the field of integrative health care. Chief among them is Tim Simmerman, author of Medical Hypnotherapy, Principles and Methods of Practice.
Ms. Guest is also an educator,who has provided wellness instruction and inspiration to numerous service organizations, the Mendocino Coast Clinics and the Mendocino Coast District Hospital. In addition, she records CDs, which are available to her clients and the general public, for weight loss, restful sleep, smoking cessation and preparation for surgery. Alena feels privileged to do work daily, that encourages her clients to create their optimal health, by fostering wise choices.
