Do you ever wonder why you keep experiencing the same kind of problem over and over again? Do you keep feeling defeated even before you begin? Ever wonder sometimes what's it all for and why you're still living? Many people ask themselves these questions everyday, but do nothing about it. You are not alone! There is help. You've come to the right place! People sometimes develop unhealthy ways of living due to their past experiences of being abused, hurt or traumatized. I specialize in helping those people suffering from the pain of life's disappointments, hurts or tragedies.

I help people who sometimes gravitate towards drugs, alcohol, unhealthy eating habits, sex or even other people, to numb their pain. I have extensive experience treating individuals diagnosed with depression, anxiety, mood swings and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

I also love working with LGBT individuals and understand the unique challenges people face due to prejudice and discrimination. I am a National Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and have ample experience and success in helping people overcome their problems. So, why wait? Call me today.

Eleanor D. Laser, Ph.D.


Chicago, IL  60611

Eleanor Laser, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist with extensive experience in using hypnosis for medical procedures, and hypnosis-assisted childbirth to ensure healthy patient outcomes.  Your brain is a computer that no one can build.  Through hypnosis you can shift and delete old messages and old programmed behaviors.  You can replace them with new actions and quality changes.  I work with hypnosis to relieve sugar addiction via the sweet tooth extraction.  Further help is conquered via the hypnotic gastric band, no surgery.

My specialties include:  Hypnobirthing (Hypnosis for Childbirth), Hypnosis for Surgery (pre, post, during), Smoking Cessation, Weight Loss (utilizes the power of the mind to become aware of the feeling of fullness, reducing the intake of food); symptoms of all kinds: pain, fears, phobias, and hypnosis for sports.
