Clinical Hypnosis Therapy by a Licensed Psychologist
“Clinical hypnosis can be a very effective tool for helping people make important changes in their lives,” says Springs psychologist Gary Neuger, Ph.D. Dr. Neuger should know – he has been helping Front Range residents through the use of clinical hypnosis for the last 28 years. “The reason I use it is because it works, and I like doing things that work.”
Dr. Neuger reports, “I use hypnotherapy to help people with a wide range of mental, emotional, and physical difficulties because hypnosis allows us greater access to the power of the unconscious mind.” According to Neuger, “the unconscious is a tremendous reservoir of knowledge, strength, energy, and abilities that we rarely tap into on a conscious basis and through hypnosis, we can access the unconscious and have a positive impact on what we experience in our mind and body.”
Because of this, Dr. Neuger uses hypnosis therapy as a means of treatment for various problems including: anxiety, fear, stress, and tension; depression; relationship difficulties; trauma resolution; athletes who want to improve their performance; smoking cessation and treatment for other addictions; weight loss; habits such as nail biting and hair pulling; and pain. In fact, he helps patients with various types of acute and chronic pain including pain from accidents, injuries, childbirth, medical/surgical, and dental procedures, headaches, as well as pain associated with cancer, RSD, TMJ, fibromyalgia, and burns.
Dr. Neuger uses a combination of hypnosis and EMDR to help people who have survived trauma and those dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. He also enjoys helping athletes to consistently perform at their best and finds that most athletes who incorporate the techniques he teaches them enjoy substantial improvement in their performance.
Dr. Neuger first came to Colorado Springs in 1985 as the hospital psychologist at Fort Carson. He remained in that position until his honorable discharge from active duty in late 1986, and has been in private practice ever since.
Dr. Neuger is a Fellow of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis, and a former Associate Editor of The American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis. He has conducted scientific research on clinical hypnosis, and has provided workshop training in clinical hypnosis to physicians and mental health professionals.
Dr. Neuger’s office is at 422 E. Vermijo Ave., conveniently located in downtown Colorado Springs at the corner of Wahsatch and Vermijo. He can be reached by calling (719) 219-6220.
