About AEI Hypnosis           Professional Profile 



The mission of AEI Hypnosis is to empower, uplift, and inspire all people to be their authentic best in sport and in life.

I teach my students and clients to use the tools of self-hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming to live more complete lives.

I acknowledge the presence of a Divine Force in all healing work.

I honor the inherent resources and healing abilities within every client.

I affirm the brotherhood of all humanity.

I believe that for optimal living to exist healing must occur on physical, mental, emotional, economic, spiritual and cultural levels.

I respect the wisdom of African, Asian, Native American, Christian and other spiritual traditions of the world.

I seek to address the unique healing needs of people of African descent.
