images (2)Psychotherapy – Hypnosis – EMDR

I treat adolescents and adults for the following:

I have specialties in Clinical Hypnosis, EMDR (Level II trained), and Cognitive Behavioral Techniques. I use a relatively unique combination of Hypnosis and EMDR to more rapidly access and resolve trauma than is typical through traditional psychotherapy techniques. Smoking Cessation: informal follow-up with former clients reveals 70-75 percent remained non-smokers up to 6 months after conclusion of our work together.

“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.”

Dr. Neuger uses hypnosis to help people with various problems including: anxiety, fear, stress, and tension; depression; relationship difficulties; resolving traumatic experiences; athletes who want to improve their performance; habits such as smoking, weight loss, nail biting, and hair pulling; and pain. In fact, he helps patients with various types of 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 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, former President of the Colorado Society of Clinical Hypnosis, and former Associate Editor of The American Journal Of Clinical Hypnosis.  He has conducted scientific research on clinical hypnosis, and provides workshop training in clinical hypnosis to physicians and mental health professionals.
