Who is Terry Biener?
While smoke cessation, weight control and stress management have always been the mainstay of her Hypnotherapy practice, Terry Biener specializes in helping people with phobias and panic attacks. Having had the burden of these devastating conditions herself (which were alleviated through hypnosis), her empathy and understanding runs deep. Of the various techniques she has used over the years, she finds NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) to be most successful with fears and anxiety.
Ms. Biener has been helping adults and children with hypnosis since 1992. Her
private practice is based on one-to-one sessions. Her numerous certifications were earned though
the American Board of Hypnotherapy and the National Guild of
She holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education from SUNY New Paltz, and is a former New York City school teacher.
How many sessions needed depends on both the individual and the problem. Since most habits or conditions exist from years of negative re-enforcement, one should expect at least a few sessions for long-lasting effect. One-on-one hypnosis, as opposed to group hypnosis, is very different in that sessions can be tailored exactly to the person's issues, triggers and personality. Motivation and the desire to make the change are important ingredients. Trust and a good rapport with the Hypnotherapist should definitely be there. Ms. Biener believes that people should understand hypnosis and be comfortable with it before trying it.
Hypnotherapy can be effective with just
about anything caused by, or blocked by, the subconscious mind. Ms. Biener has helped people improve in sports, concentration, study habits, and
get rid of addictions, obsessions and all types of habits. She has helped
people through the grieving process, or post-traumatic stress syndrome. Having taught in both elementary and junior high school, she is comfortable with children and teens. Her
experience includes helping repair self-worth and confidence that's been
damaged through ADD, ADHD and Asperger's Syndrome and other issues.
Clients are seen privately by appointment only. Ms. Biener has done
speaking engagements and group hypnosis sessions at wellness centers and
for local organizations. Phone consultations, during which she will address
any questions or concerns, are free and confidential.
