About Claire



I have extensive experience helping clients stop smoking and I love my work! I opened my private practice, Positive Spiral Hypnosis, in 2008, Chapel Hill, North Carolina. One of my specialties is pediatric and adolescent functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorders. From 2015-2018 I was an adjunct assistant professor at UNC School of Dentistry, helping to run a hypnosis clinic for patients with dental anxiety. I consult with clients in person and also online via Zoom.


I have PhD in Educational Psychology, and I am a certified hypnotherapist and hypnosis instructor with the National Guild of Hypnotists.


I am certified in Hypnotherapy, Transactional Analysis, and Advanced Integrative Therapy. I became a certified hypnosis instructor in 2011 and I teach the National Guild of Hypnotists' 100-hour basic hypnosis certification course several times a year.


My professional memberships include:

  • American Psychological Association (APA)

  • APA Division 30 (Society for Psychological Hypnosis)

  • International Medical and Dental Hypnosis Association

  • National Guild of Hypnotists (NGH)

  • Human Givens Institute (MHGI)
