About Benjamin Schoeffler and Thrive Hypnotherapy

Ben-Schoeffler-2017-Hypnosis-Boise.jpgI'm Benjamin Schoeffler and I'm the primary Medical Hypnotist and founder of Thrive Hypnotherapy. I have studied hypnosis since 2008 and completed my certification and internship in 2012 from the Hypnosis Practitioners Training Institute with a heavy emphasis on Medical and Dental Hypnosis. Being able to teach people the tools to better manage their anxiety and pain is something that inspires me to stay on the cutting edge. In addition to being a graduate of HPTI, I am also a certified member of the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association (IMDHA).

Thrive Hypnotherapy uses a client centered and evidence based approach to hypnotherapy. Constantly learning and delving into the latest scientific studies to figure out the most effective techniques is the hallmark of my practice. Whether it be helping someone reduce/eliminate teeth grinding or teaching someone techniques to manage chronic pain; I work in conjunction with doctors, dentists, and other healthcare providers utilizing the most effective practices to help my clients. Some of the tools I use:

  • Traditional hypnotherapy
  • Ericksonian suggestion
  • Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
  • Hypnotic pain control techniques
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Regression therapy & parts therapy
  • Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
  • Medical meditation
  • Autogenic training
