I am Seattle’s “Insight Guy” and the bridge between where you are and where you want to be.
I love what I do because I get to help people like you realize just how amazing your life can really be and more importantly how easy it is to have a successful and worry free life. Yes, I did say worry free! I did not say stress free because shit happens in life when we are not excepting it that can have a negative impact and that can cause stress. Worry on the other hand is a choice and you can choose to have a worry free life.
As unsettling as it was when I was young I have learned to accept that I am more than a little attuned to what others are feeling and that insight helps me help you do more than simply achieve your goals. I have spent more than 25 years studying how our thoughts and beliefs create our realities and how we can experience a more fulfilling life once we learn how to use the mind as an instrument for observation rather than a teller of truth. I live what I teach and so I know what works and am happy to share what I’ve learned.
Always on the search for that one thing that would tie up all the loose ends to the coaching and hypnosis work I was doing with clients, I discovered CONTROL and it has proven to be the capstone to all the modalities I have studied, practiced and taught. I have studied hypnosis in many of its forms including Ericksonian, Past Life Regression, Informing Soul Technique, Parts Therapy and Informed Child Technique as well as traditional trance work and what I have come to discover is that they are all working towards the same end goal; acceptance and getting the subconscious mind in alignment with conscious desires.
My background in helping others live up to their true potential started with me learning how to help myself. I had to first find my way out of the mire and the misery of a life of self -destructive behaviors and I started that process by leaving behind a codependent lifestyle of choices based on what other people wanted and expected from me. I learned to take responsibility for where my life was at and where it was going. I learned that I am the captain of my ship and that I am ultimately in control of the amount of wind in my sails.
Let me show you how to use the power of your mind and let loose the winds of your destiny.

West Seattle hypnotist Anthony Gitch gives all of his clients a card that reads: “There is no person, thought, idea, memory, image, feeling or sensation, out of the past, in the present or ever to arrive in the future that could stop me from ______.”
What are your feelings for? What do they tell you? Do you know the difference between feeling inadequate, sad, board or fearful? More importantly do you have a healthy way to satisfy those feelings once you have identified them?
We've all seen hypnotists portrayed in movies, as they swing gold pocket watches and whisper, "You're getting sleepy. Very sleepy." But did you know hypnosis is used in therapy? When it's utilized by trained hypnotherapists, patients can use hypnosis to recover from trauma, move past addictions, and just generally improve their lives.
