Depth Hypnosis

Uproot what is holding you back. Reclaim what you've lost. Listen to your inner wisdom. Step into your power. Live a greater purpose. Become whole again. 

As a Depth Hypnosis Practitioner, I use ancient wisdom combined with progressive psychology into an evidence-based practice that has clinically been proven to spark rapid and deep change.

Are you ready for something more?

If you’re here, it’s probably because you’re an intelligent, creative, intuitive, open-minded, and insightful woman who just hasn’t quite figured out how to heal and live the life you want just yet. 

 

You’ve tried talk therapy or coaching, you’re a regular meditator or yogi, and your bookshelf is full of books about personal growth and spirituality. 

 

You’re deep, intuitive, and insightful, so you've gained a lot of awareness and know what you need to change, but what’s driving you crazy is that you haven’t quite figured out how… yet. 

 

You're not the only one. By the time women find me, they’ve usually tried most things under the sun, and they’re looking for something different. 

 

If you’re anything like me, you’re deeply committed to inner work. You want to be a good person, take great care of yourself, be healthy, feel whole, feel deeply connected to your inner guidance, feel confident and empowered, and live your purpose every day. And while these benefits can last a lifetime, the process of change doesn’t need to take a lifetime. 

 

I was in your shoes too. I too tried everything under the sun. I’ve been the recipient of and trained in multiple modalities, including Internal Family Systems, Somatic Experiencing, mindfulness, yoga, Psychedelic Therapy, and Trauma Releasing Exercises, and I can confidently say that Depth Hypnosis has brought me home to myself and healed the root causes of many issues that were keeping me stuck the way nothing else has. 

 

Are you ready to find the root cause and finally heal what needs to be healed?

In my hypnosis practice, I believe that...

You have the power to get the answers to the questions that you seek within you

You deserve to become your own person with your own unique gifts, free from societal expectations, work, or other people who are trying to make you into something different

It is entirely possible to be free of the patterns that are influencing you, even if you've been living with them for your whole life

You can create a spiritual path on your terms that is meaningful and helpful to you

While the benefits of our sessions may last a lifetime, healing doesn't need to take a lifetime

You may benefit from Depth Hypnosis if you are...

  • Feeling unworthy, unconfident, and disempowered

  • Constantly feeling drained or fatigued

  • Grappling with chronic pain or disease

  • Unsure of who you are, full of self-doubt, and struggling to trust your inner knowing

  • Lost, confused, and full of questions, but unsure how to get them answered

  • Struggling to use your voice and speak up for yourself

  • Deconstructing your faith background and looking for inner-directed spirituality

  • Spiritually seeking and full of big questions

  • Constantly caring for others, while leaving your own needs on the backburner

  • Having difficulty identifying and caring for your needs

  • Driven by fear, worry, or the need to control

  • Feeling “split” inside and struggling to make decisions you feel confident about

  • Feeling like you’ve lost or given away parts of yourself

  • Caught in patterns of codependency, always giving, or feeling like you can’t cope on your own

  • Struggling to listen to and care for your body, and pushing your body to its breaking point

  • Curious to learn how to derive meaning from your dreams

  • Walking the professional path of a healer, therapist, coach, leader, or teacher, and you know how critical it is to have a space to work on your own inner development on multiple levels - mind, body, and spirit

About Depth Hypnosis

Depth Hypnosis is a transpersonal, or spiritual, model that draws from both ancient wisdom and modern science. It was created by Isa Gucchiardi, PhD. It has roots in Buddhism, Shamanism, Energy Medicine, Hypnosis, and Transpersonal Psychology. 

 

Unlike most methods of talk therapy, Depth Hypnosis helps you move beyond the conscious mind using altered states of consciousness to help you find and heal subconscious drivers of the problems that plague you on a day-to-day basis. 

 

Break free from the root causes that are keeping you stuck. 

 

Unlike in psychotherapy where the therapeutic relationship is the main driver of change, the main driver of change in Depth Hypnosis is your relationship with yourself. Depth Hypnosis uses an altered state of consciousness to help you tap into your inner guidance so that you can receive answers to your most deeply held questions and heal what needs to be healed. 

 

Tap into your inner healing intelligence so you can feel whole again.

 

In an altered state similar to a meditation or a dream, you will be able to clearly see what has been holding you back and heal it in a way that feels safe and empowering to you. 

 

Inspired by Shamanic practice, you will reclaim your personal power, retrieve lost parts of your soul, and uproot internalized beliefs and influences from other people that don’t align with you so you can feel empowered and whole again. Inspired by Buddhist practice, you will heal the roots of unnecessary suffering so you can feel more at peace.

 

Depth Hypnosis has been shown to drastically and rapidly reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, and PTSD, and improve overall wellbeing. Really - in a study that included just 8 Depth Hypnosis sessions per participant, anxiety scores went down 58%, depression scores went down 56%, and PTSD symptoms reduced by 45%. I don't know about you, but I think that's remarkable.

Hi, I'm Emma.

I’ve been practicing Depth Hypnosis for several years. I’ve helped entrepreneurs, business owners, visionaries, leaders, therapists, healers, energy workers, artists, intuitives, yoga teachers, professors, lawyers, medical professionals, public figures, and parents to feel whole again and change their lives for the better. 

 

After a successful career as a private practice therapist, I decided to branch out of the psychotherapy field so I could become a truly integrative practitioner and offer the methods that I believe help people the most. 

I love to learn, think outside the box, and bring seemingly disparate ideas and disciplines together in new and innovative ways in order to solve the world’s problems. I want to do my part to create a regenerative world that I will feel proud for future generations to inherit.

 

I believe that Depth Hypnosis offers many components that modern psychotherapy doesn’t - namely, integration of ancient wisdom with modern evidence-based practice, as well as using altered states of consciousness while fostering spiritual development and offering rapid change. 

 

When it comes to holistic health, I live and breathe this stuff. In addition to Depth Hypnosis training, my work is informed by advanced studies in many modalities.

I require a commitment from you to...

Embrace the idea that you can access inner guidance to help you heal, and a willingness to listen to that inner guidance

Live a life that is in accordance with your highest good

Take personal responsibility for yourself and your growth and development

Look, with courage, at whatever is causing your problems

Change and "let go" of old values systems, beliefs, and behaviors that are not helping you, so you can be free to live in accordance with your highest good 

Become your own person grounded in your own needs, values, and innate energy 

Focus. This includes on a single topic of discussion and within altered states of consciousness. (A meditation practice is strongly encouraged)

Maintain a quiet, uninterrupted space for the duration of sessions

Take intentional time to reflect before and after sessions, to both start sessions with intention and bring key insights into your life

Have coping skills in place that work for you before we start

  • What perks do I receive for referring others to you?
    I'm pleased to offer referral perks! For every person you refer to me who signs up to work with me for 3+ months, you get a free visit with me! This referral program works for current clients as well as prospective clients - if you refer someone to me and then sign up to work with me yourself within 6 months of the referral, the cost of one of your visits will be offered to you as a discount on your package. In order to qualify, the person will need to mention your name upon first reaching out to me.
  • What if I want to work with you for longer than the package duration?
    You can absolutely decide to extend our work together. Let's talk about it when we meet.
  • When do you offer sessions?
    I want to do a great job of helping you, so offer you the gift of working with you during my peak focus and productivity hours. I also practice the self-care that I preach through reasonable and standardized work hours. I have set work hours between 9 am and 1 pm or 3 pm on weekdays. Please expect your visits to occur during this time.
  • If it’s been a while since I’ve seen you, can I request another session?
    Yes! Just email me. I will get back to you about scheduling and current rates for follow-ups.
  • How much is the intro call?
    The 20-30-minute intro call is $100. Charging for these calls helps you prove to yourself and me that you are committed to this journey. It also respects my time.
  • How and where are sessions conducted?
    I have an in-person office in Saint Louis, MO. If you’re local, you’re welcome to come in-person for all or some of your sessions! If you’re not local, sessions are conducted by video or over the phone - your choice.
  • How is payment structured?
    You can pay up-front for the package and receive a discount. Alternatively, you can pay as you go. I’m happy to accommodate whichever structure suits you better.
  • What sets you apart from other professionals?
    My holistic background. I have spent over 6 years as a full-time psychotherapist, which means I have thousands of hours under my belt helping people find root causes and change their behavior. I have a knack for listening deeply and reading between the lines. I also have holistic training in many other dimensions of wellness, including spiritual, mental, emotional, nutritional, relational, and physical. I am capable of integrating all of my expertise together into truly holistic help. You can see my other training and qualifications above.
  • Is this psychotherapy?
    Since I am a psychotherapist, it makes sense that you would have this question! The answer is NO - Nutritional Therapy, Depth Hypnosis, and Shamanic Counseling are not psychotherapy, and I do not practice as an NTP, DHP, or ASC at Holistic Health With Emma, LLC under my LPC license. Nutritional Therapy, Depth Hypnosis, and Shamanic Counseling are not affiliated with the world of psychotherapy, professional counseling, or therapy. In fact, I very few or none of my classmates in any of these programs were also psychotherapists. While you are more than welcome to pursue NTP, DHP, or ASC sessions if you have diagnosable mental health issues, we will not be commencing a psychotherapy relationship under my LPC license unless explicitly stated and contractually agreed upon. NTP, DHP, and ASC sessions are not mental health or medical treatment.
  • What is your professional designation?
    I am a licensed therapist (LPC) in the state of Missouri and in the state of Illinois (LCPC). However, I do not practice under my licenses via this business. If you pursue sessions with me, you may refer to me as "your Nutritional Therapy Practitioner," "your Depth Hypnosis Practitioner," or "your Shamanic Counselor," depending on the services you pursue. I am not a dietician or medical doctor licensed in the state of Missouri or any other state. The information provided or advice given in sessions may be considered alternative care by licensed practitioners in the state of Missouri, and I do not practice medical nutrition therapy. I am credentialed in the field of nutrition as an NTP, and in the field of hypnosis as a DHP.
  • Why do you have a package? Can I see you just a couple of times instead?
    Several months is the minimum amount of time we need for you to reap benefits. Add-on months are available if you still need support after the initial package length is over. I do not see clients for just a few sessions because I want you to have good outcomes.
  • How do I get started?
    Simply submit your information on the application form and I’ll get back to you!
