As a counselor in the beautiful city of Chicago, I work with people who are age 18 years or older who are looking to unveil their barriers and then access their own clarity, self-direction, security and healing in the following areas:
Unveil hidden barriers to feeling good and to your success. This service helps to release trauma, pain and barriers from your mind and body, clearing the way for an expanded and brighter life. Together, we can reveal your true power and worth, setting you on your path, firmly, with new tools, wisdom, understanding, relief and inspiration. I am right there with you on this fascinating journey.
This powerful therapy can increase confidence in your capacity to handle social situations and college demands well. It can set you free from anxiety and nervousness in your mind and body. College can be such a wonderful experience. Let’s get you started on enjoying it while making the most of it, creating great memories.
In this therapy program, I can help you to unveil and remove hidden barriers against peaceful, powerful communication and boundary setting. By doing this, your beautiful, powerful voice is revealed. This therapy program also teaches assertiveness and communication skills, affording you feelings of confidence, peace and ease, which can bring clarity to your relationships. You can communicate directly, clearly and set boundaries elegantly, peacefully, powerfully and with certainty.
In addition to Clinical Hypnosis, I also offer Non-Clinical Hypnosis. This serves to encourage breaking of old habits or the creation of new habits. Non-clinical hypnosis adds an overall “boost” to daily life in a focused manner and is not considered psychotherapy. See more information about non-clinical hypnosis, here.
Hello, I’m Nina Pernecke, I help individual adults and college students through use of Hypnoanalysis Therapy and Talk Therapy/Traditional Counseling in Chicago. If you are experiencing panic attacks, feeling lost, anxious, sad, powerless, or not good enough, working with me can help you by healing up and clearing out the reasons for those feelings. Doing so leaves room for your true, happier, more peaceful self to come forward. I am solutions oriented and driven by your success. The modalities I use help you get there faster and the solutions are stronger.
I am a licensed psychotherapist and I completed my Masters training in clinical social work/psychotherapy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In addition to talk therapy, I practice a powerful, traditional, clinically informed method of psychotherapy called Hypnoanalysis. I have completed private residency training in clinical hypnosis and Hypnoanalysis and I am a certified Hypnoanalyst. Aside from working with individuals with a wide variety of issues, including anxiety, panic attacks, and depression, I have developed a specialty in working with people who experience barriers to peace, power and communication, which can cause frustration, anxiety and depression in their lives. I also specialize in working with college students in the areas of anxiety, performance, social issues, relationships and much more.
Sometimes I am asked questions about whether or not I make people quack like a duck, or swing a watch like a pendulum and control people’s minds. This is understandable as many of us grew up hearing about stage hypnosis, and perhaps some of us have heard about unscrupulous hypnotherapists out there. I get it! It may be helpful to know that I practice clinical hypnosis, which is one of the oldest modalities used in psychotherapy. It is conservative, respectful, careful, very effective and you remain in control. I am also guided by the ethics of my professional code and the requirements of my licensure under the State of Illinois.
