you will thank yourself
Hal has a calm, comfortable and friendly demeanor that informs his therapeutic techniques. Using a combination of hypnosis and talk therapy, Hal was able to rid me of some pernicious habits that were preventing me from reaching my personal goals. I am well on my way to a more fulfilling life thanks to Hal. Do not hesitate to contact him if you're stuck and need a nudge in the right direction.

Pleased to be a client
I'm very pleased and fortunate to be a client of Psychotherapist/Hypnotherapist, Hal Brickman. I was experiencing anxiety and depression and was nervous and skeptical about seeking therapy. I didn't know where to begin. A friend suggested Mr. Brickman, and recommended him highly. At this point I knew that it was time to make a decision. I met with Hal and found him to be kind, understanding and he answered all my questions regarding treatment and therapy. I feel we have developed a great rapport, and in a short time, I have learned much about myself and have a better understanding of the issues that have been of concern to me for some time. Now it is my turn to recommend Hal Brickman highly and without reservation.

A calming voice in today's hectic world.
I have known Hal for many years as a patient and a therapist myself. I understand how much a soothing voice/tone/demeanor is necessary for a therapist, hypnotist or voice overs. When the world gets hectic Hal has assisted me to calm myself,make clearer decisions and become more focused. I wholly recommend him as therapist,hypnotist,who in a non- aggressive manner, helps you to develop your own inner voice

Excellent experience
Hal Brickman is a wonderful therapist who provides a calm and comfortable environment for clients. The decision to seek therapy was not easy, but my life has vastly improved during the time I have been meeting with Hal. Anybody who is either experiencing a difficult time in their life or who just needs somebody to talk to would benefit greatly from sessions with Hal Brickman.

A dedicated brilliant Therapist
When I began marriage counseling with Hal, I had little hope that my husband and I could make our relationship work. I wanted to give my 12 year marriage a chance and we're so happy that we found Hal. He helped us to rediscover what we liked about each other in the first place. Hal's warm demeanor and impartial acceptance made it possible for my husband and I to work through our problems. We were seriously on the verge of divorce. Hal's wisdom helped us discover more direct and constructive ways of communicating. This has led to a much more trusting relation, mutual respect and the return of intimacy.

Quiet the Mind
After I made my first appointment, I couldn't wait to see him. It was a gut feeling that I had and it all started when I heard his voice for the first time. Having delt with many people in my life time, I could tell that he was sincere about my issues, and was willing to help me as much as possible. As stubborn as I am, I was able to go into a trance my first meeting. I make recordings, so when I have those bad moments, I'm able to listen on my own and calm myself down. He has the ability to make you feel very comfortable. Which I think is very important. By doing so, I'm able to discuss whatever is on my mind without any judgement. My only regret is that I wish I could go at least twice a week, but my schedule doesn't allow it.

Thanks for your heartfelt appreciation Matthew. It's so rewarding and meaningful to me to know I'm making a difference in your life.
