Susana Burns, CHt, CH

Consulting Hypnotist, Certified Hypnotherapist, and Guided Imagery Master

For Susana Padilla-Burns, Consulting Hypnotist, time and quality of life has always been of importance. Her professional career began in Hotel Management and Innkeeping along the Pacific Coast. Paying attention to the details of the moment and creating “stages for life to take place” was a part of every day. In the interaction with guests and staff, she came to realize that most people want true relaxation and to enjoy life in health. As she moved along the coast and in life, she discovered new passions and ways to bring relaxation to people who couldn’t always get away for those long trips.

After nearly ten years in Hospitality, she studied Interior Design at IDI in Newport Beach, CA where she was quickly taken on as an intern for RG+A, a design firm that specialized in spas. While there she noticed there was still something missing in the mindbody connection.

It was during that time that she decided to go back to school to learn more about healing and wellness – Hypnotherapy was the decision. Previously, while in design school, she learned about dimensions in space, but what really appealed to her were the dimensions within the mindspace, establishing the mindbody connection and creating true spaces of wellness from the inside out. Within a year, she was an Honors Graduate, a Therapeutic Guided Imagery Master and was asked to mentor students at the Hypnosis Motivation Institute.

Some of the specialties she is certified in include: Guided Imagery Master, Hypnosis for Tinnitus, Hypnosis for Weight Loss, Release Technique, Hypnosis and the Law of Attraction, Hypnotherapy for Clients with Cancer, Hypnosis and ADD/ADHD, Hypnosis for Immune Disorders, Hypnosis and Childbirth, Hypnosis for Loss, Hypnosis and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Hypnosis and Pain Management, Past Life Regression, Neurolinguistic Programming, Therapeutic Imagery Facilitator, Therapeutic Imagery – Mythic & Archetypal Advanced Therapeutic Imagery, Therapeutic Imagery for Life Passages, Therapeutic Imagery – Metaphysical Therapeutic Imagery Master, Handwriting Analysis, as well as a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy with Honors.

During her 1,000-hour training and clinical residency, she opened three locations for Hypnosis Haven in Southern California. She has now moved to Brookfield, CT where she is happily seeing clients at Healthy Weighs Wellness Center. Here she can use her training to help clients manage their challenges and improve life, change behaviors and achieve goals for self-improvement. It is her goal to bring balance and wellness to all for a well-designed life.
