I plan on coming to see you again for other issues in the near future, Thanks John!"

    -Katy S.


  • “Thank you for working with [my daughter]… She was at the gym last night and did round off back handspring tucks and layouts several times with coach spotting her!! She exceeded her goal by far! I think she is on her way to tumbling again… Thank you so much for your help.” -Kelli Smith

Hypnosis can help you...

Create the Life You Want


Hypnosis is one of the most effective self-improvement methods known, producing results far beyond what most people are able to achieve by willpower alone.



I’ve been fascinated by hypnosis and phenomena of the human mind for as long as I can remember. I devoted myself to the practice of clinical hypnotism because I love helping people use this powerful tool to achieve things that previously seemed impossible. I have used hypnosis successfully for a wide range of problems and goals. Some of the most common are: 



- Smoking, chewing tobacco, and addiction to nicotine and nicotine supplements



- Weight loss, healthy eating, snacking

- Boredom eating and emotional eating

- Fitness and exercise motivation

- Sugar addiction



- Anxiety and stress

- Performance anxiety

- Phobias (public speaking, cars, bridges, driving, flying, heights, night, hypochondria, stage fright, needles, snakes, insects, animals, dentistry)



- Racing thoughts, mental preoccupation.

- Mental clarity and peace of mind

- Focus

- Positive attitude

- Patience

- Anger management



- Academic performance, learning, study skills, and memory retention.

- Motivation (work, fitness, social) and procrastination.

- Professional achievement, confidence, sales, and interviews

- Artistic performance enhancement (music and acting) and auditions

- Athletic performance and sports enhancement (baseball, softball, running, wrestling, racing, gymnastics, golf, tennis, darts, billiards, karate)

- Social comfort, confidence and self-esteem

- Communication



- Habits (nail-biting, picking, hair pulling)

- Tics (eye blinking, vocal tics, Tourette’s syndrome)

- Stuttering

- Hiccups


Hypnosis is not a magic fix or a cure-all, but it has that reputation for a reason: the mind is very powerful, and its applications are virtually limitless. If you think I can help you, please contact me or schedule an appointment. I am straightforward and realistic about hypnosis, and would be happy to discuss what I can do to help you.

John's Signature


John Mongiovi

John Mongiovi is a Certified Hypnotist, hypnosis teacher, and speaker. He is certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists and is one of 21 practitioners in the United States certified by examination of a state medical licensing board. John has over twenty years experience in hypnotism, and has been in the practice of clinical hypnosis for over ten years.


John specializes in helping performing and creative artists with performance anxiety, confidence, focus, creativity, and motivation. He has been a regular clinician for the Sherrill Milnes VOICE programs and delivers presentations throughout the country on mental training for performance enhancement.



I am certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists, the oldest and largest professional association of hypnotists. For certification I completed a hypnotherapy core-curriculum consisting of 100 hours of training. I exceed the annual 15 hours continuing education credits required to maintain active certification. As a Certified Member of the Guild I practice in accordance with its Code of Ethics and Standards.


In pursuit of advanced credentials I was certified as a Hypnotist by the Medical Licensing Board of Indiana. I am one of 21 practitioners in the United States, and the only Hypnotist in New York City, certified by a state examination testing competency in hypnotism. I was licensed in Indiana from 2004-2010, at which time the laws applicable to hypnosis were eliminated, and license renewals ceased. New York does not provide for or require state licensing of hypnotists. I am a Certified Hypnotist, not a medical or mental health practitioner.


Method & Approach

I apply a range of practical experience with the phenomena and techniques of hypnotic induction, deepening, and suggestion. I use direct suggestion, post-hypnotic suggestion, Ericksonian hypnotherapy techniques (such as indirect suggestion, nonverbal suggestion, and conversational hypnosis), regression and progression, mental rehearsal, sensory and emotive imagery, imaginal exposure and desensitization, reflex conditioning, cue-controlled responses (“anchoring”), linguistic training, and symbol suggestion.


When appropriate I may incorporate diaphragmatic breathing, progressive relaxation, autogenic training, and teaching autohypnosis (self hypnosis) and autosuggestion.


Most importantly, I give close personal attention to understand each person as a unique individual and provide the best, personalized approach for you.
