Biography

James M. Giunta, M.C.I.S, M.H.

My original interest in Hypnosis was as a way of helping myself to achieve my goals. As I began my studies I decided to make this fascinating field my vocation as well as my avocation. I continue to consult many sources and work in many areas, uncovering new knowledge that I share with my many clients and colleagues. Hypnosis continues to amaze and instruct me every day of my life. No matter how much I learn and practice, it always seems as if a miracle is happening right there in our sessions.

My work experience includes training and teaching positions in both academic and corporate settings. As a life-long learner, I am constantly fascinated by discovering my clients’ learning styles and preferences; and how to deliver meaningful, progressive, and satisfying experiences for anyone who is committed to personal growth.

Hypnosis, Coaching, and Counseling are the culmination of my Life experiences and my Life’s work. I feel fortunate to be able to work in a field that is constantly fulfilling and exciting, and that my clients can achieve the results they seek. I look forward to every day that I can learn, grow, and help someone else to whatever extent that I can.
