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.

A Note From Nina:

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.

Hypnosis And The “Woo Woo” Factor

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.
