social anxiety



fears and phobias

"The most relaxed and happy I've felt for years."   --Tom S.

I had been biting my nails since I was a child. It was a habit I couldn’t break. At the end of the first session, I still wasn’t sure and we scheduled another appointment that I never attended. I haven’t bitten my nails since that first meeting and now a month later, I’ve just scheduled my first ever manicure! —Kathy G.

I went to Joseph for anxiety.  It just was like an undertone in my life that I couldn't get away from.  Medication helped a little.  Working with Joseph, my anxiety is really diminished.  I feel like a normal person now.  He taught me self-hypnosis and I use it every day.  It's wonderful.     --Brenda B.

I was really having trouble sleeping.  I was tired all the time but when it came time to go to bed, I was wide awake.  Hypnosis really helped me relax and Joseph taught me some practical ways of changing my experience at bed-time.  I use self-hypnosis now to go to sleep and I'm sleeping pretty much through the night.  I feel fantastic.      --Michael M

Having tried many approaches including medication, Joseph Onesta's treatment directed at my subconscious is the most effect and noticeable change to my anxiety that I have ever experienced. I was apprehensive in the beginning, but my quality of life and day to day stability have greatly improved since finding Joseph's practice.   --Scott S

smoking cessation

weight control


performance improvement

"I had a little problem, I didn't believe in hypnosis but I have to tell you that this brilliant and fascinating professional solved it right away. Great experience!"  --David V.

My husband and I recently completed the smoking cessation sessions. We have tried numerous times to quit smoking with no success. We are now almost three weeks smoke free and I feel confident that we will never go back to smoking. Our cravings for a cigarette are rare and Joseph gave us numerous tools to use to get past the cravings when they occur. We both truly enjoyed our sessions and would highly recommend him to anyone serious about wanting to quit smoking. It has truly changed our lives.       --Marj M.

I quit years ago cold turkey but went back to smoking and no matter what I did, no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn't stop again.  When I signed up for the four session package, I expected another failure but hypnosis was the only thing I hadn't tried before and I thought it was worth a shot.  I couldn't believe it.  I quit.  The thing that clinched it was this bottle of scent that every time I sniffed it, the though of smoking made me feel a little sick.  It was just the extra thing I needed.  --Eileen P



pain relief


Pre & Post surgery 

"Joseph helped me in multiple sessions for different purposes to gain control over pain and discomfort that had troubled me for over a decade. I continue to use the techniques he helped me with and set in place and they still have a positive impact on my life."     --Adam B.

I brought my friend in for smoking and while she was filling out her paperwork, I complained about my painful elbow.  Quickly, without even hypnosis or anything, Joseph showed me a way to reduce the pain.  I was amazed.  --Laura G.

I had constant pain in my feet.  Our first session was filled with tricks I could use to get relief even if it was temporary.  When it came back, I'd just do it again.  Over a several sessions, I noticed that the times without pain were getting longer.  What a relief!  --Ron P.

I hoped but after so many doctors telling me there was nothing they could do and I would have to learn to live with the discomfort, well hypnosis was a last resort.  After the first session, I noticed a change and that kept me motivated.  Seven sessions and I'm more than happy with the results.  It's like I got my life back.  --Claire M.
