Letter from a Soldier and Police Officer - First Responder
I have worked as a certified police officer for 12 years. I am also a member of the Army National Guard. As a police officer and Soldier I have seen some of the great things along with the terrible.
Following a combat deployment in 2007 I experienced Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that led to times of being alone with my thoughts. Those thoughts would consume my mind with depression. I still have a difficult time to this day of watching fireworks. I have taken lives and have seen fellow Soldiers hurt and killed. The answer for treating the PTSD was medication. In my experience, this did nothing to help. It only took time to overcome some of the memories I have from combat.
I began Positive Mind Management following a police shooting that left a man dead. Sparing the details, I was informed several months later that the County Attorney was considering criminal charges against me. I was an absolute mental wreck. Lack of sleep along with constant crying occurrence during those days. I gained weight and had suicidal thoughts on several occasions. The stressed and reality of criminal charges led to a path of my unknown future. I let my thoughts destroy me and recognized the depression enter into my mind. I would relive the shooting on a daily basis. I had killed men before in the Afghanistan but this was different. This killing was of a man at home and not in a far off land. I was refereed to Dennis by way of a religious leader who wanted to help me control my stress and depression.
Meeting Dennis allowed me to fight against the horrible things I was saying about myself. I went to Dennis with a mindset that I wanted to learn all I could to change my thought process. His plain blunt approach was what I needed. During our time together, he taught me how to identify and fight against “potty” words that brought me down. Dennis was able to assist me in identifying where those suicidal thoughts come from. One important lesson I learned was not allowing untrue things enter past the “Critical Factor Filter”.
Since very little communication was happening between lawyers, I was left to assume many things. My mind began to wonder and think of the worst case scenario. Every time I would leave a visit with Dennis I would leave feeling wonderful inside. We would confront the assumptions, fears, depression, feelings, anger and other emotions to include taking someone life.
I would put forth the effort in what steps we were working on. I kept a journal every day since the shooting and I would reflect on the days that I visited Dennis and the tools he taught me to have a positive mind.
The tools Dennis has taught me saved my life. To this day I constantly think of that shooting. There are permanent effects from that day that I will always keep with me. What will also stay with me are the tools Dennis taught me. I
I know I am not the only first Responder who sees horrible things day after day. Suicide is a real thing with first Responders and service members alike. Positive Mind Management is something that I cannot put into words of how grateful I am to learn of this tool in my life. To this day, I still fall asleep to Dennis’ voice from his hypnotherapy tape. Thank You, Dennis.
Thank You Note from a Young Married Woman: she wanted more children, but experiencing emotional difficulties and was not enjoying intimacy or able to become pregnant.
I am forever grateful to you for the tools you gave me to free myself from depression and the counsel and wisdom I received from you to take control of my thoughts and my life. I am amazed at the wonderful year I have had since completing sessions with you. So many things have changed for the better, but expecting a baby, I never could have believed! Our little boy is due ____________, and we await his arrival with great excitement. I have had an incredible - blissful pregnancy and long-awaited (____years) miracle.
I wanted to tell you myself - even though you might have heard through _____________________. And I wanted you to know how grateful I am that __________________ recommended I see you. I am so grateful to you for sharing your unique skills and gifts.
Just a quick note to express my appreciation for making the study of hypnotherapy possible—this is not just your grandma’s hypnotherapy either—it is amazing! You have put so much thought, preparation and prayer into this program making it ever so valuable. I have to admit, when I was looking for a school I purposefully did not look in Utah wanting to avoid an LDS-based program that was sheltered from the world and may not "say it like it is" sort of thing. I was prompted to check Utah and never doubted the minute I found your school.
The distance learning with the virtual classroom setting has been so much better than I anticipated and made it possible for me to do this. This path of healing has been a big part of my life and I trust that each therapy or technique I learned was for a reason and accepted at the time. I feel like we are in the final stretch and people need hypnotherapy and are now ready for it that is why I ended up here.
I have enjoyed everyone in the class and their contributions—including the old cowboy, that means you!! Thank you for being real and sharing your passion—I will diligently spread this passion up here in my neck of the woods! Everyone deserves to have more peace and happiness in their life, and my purpose in life (what I have left) is to make that choice available to as many people as I can by educating them about hypnotherapy and enabling them to enjoy their journey.
Life is GOOD!!
Here are two experiences I have had:
I hadn’t been in Dennis’s classes for long before I learned a few things about self-hypnosis. I am currently attending Dixie State University majoring in psychology. One of the classes I am taking is psychological biology and it is incredibly hard. I studied and read all of the material for an exam that called for detailed explanations of brain systems and how they work and their effects on the mind. I was so scared to take the exam until I remembered Dennis teaching us to take a 10-15 minute relaxation break before I went in for the exam and my brain would be able to pull out the information I needed. As I sat in my car I took a couple of deep breaths, relaxed my body and reminded myself over and over again that I knew the information required for the exam. I went in 10 minutes later and took the exam, the information came to mind so easily. I wanted yell in excitement and quote Dennis “how cool is that!”. When I got my exam back I had received a 92% which was the second highest test score in the class! It was seriously cool! Dennis worked with me on my serious addiction to candy. When I say serious I am talking about bags of candy and candy bars and licorice all day long. After my session I had an understanding of why I was eating it so much. Candy now has a different look to me. It isn’t the same anymore and my desire for the sugar is gone. It almost felt too easy so I have continued listening to the weight management and self-esteem CDs to maintain my new mind set.
– Brandy Brandon
Story from a young man, 16 years old
I’d been sick for about 2 years when we were recommended to Dennis.
Years before that, I had anger management problems to the point of violence and was severely depressed. Through counseling and medication I’ve learned to control myself. About 2 years ago, I fell ill, constantly nauseous and dizzy and devoid of all energy. When it started it was minor, but got increasingly more major and impactful from there.
I dropped out of school and took to hiding from the world, losing myself in video games and other pointless pursuits. I was paraded from one doctor to the next, knowing while I was hurting physically, I was emotionally affected just as much.
Eventually, I got tested for food allergies and between blood and prick tests, I was told that I was allergic to 13 common, major foods such as dairy, corn, and rice to name a few. I could not eat anything outside of the house unless I brought my own food. In general, I couldn’t eat anything appetizing. Those few expensive foods I could eat quickly became intolerable as it became increasingly more difficult to get any other sources of starch in my diet. As a skinny guy already due to genetics, I continued to lose weight and become more skeletal.
We had investigated all avenues of traditional medical treatment. Then we started turning to non-traditional ones. Why not, what we had done to that point was unsuccessful. In the end, we tried hypnotherapy with Dennis Parker despite my concerns and skepticisms, which I made obvious. But, because of how highly recommended he was to us by a family friend, two years ago we decided to take the summer off, travel to his office in Utah and try it out.
At worst, it would turn out not be effective, and I would have enjoyed visiting my grandmother who lived there anyway. But, as it turned out, against all odds, it did work! Thanks to Dennis and him teaching me how to manage my mind as he worked with me, I can now eat anything I want and have done so for the past two years. I have put on more muscle and fat than I ever have, and I am happy and healthy despite my history of difficult personal health circumstances.
More people need to know about Dennis and his innovative positive mind management techniques and protocols utilized in his special forms of hypnotherapy. It was not particularly easy as I had to face many issues in my life and be willing to accept the “truths that set me free”. My willingness and determination to work through these personal issues for a better life with him, changed my life. It has left me happier, healthier, and better than before. Despite your misgivings of what you might think of hypnosis or whatever misunderstandings you may have of hypnotherapy, give Dennis a shot.
Because, for me, when everything else I had done failed, he and his Positive Mind Management Hypnotherapy processes did not.
Mother of four children:
I brought my 5 year old son in to see Dennis because of erratic out of control and very destructive behaviors. As a mom I was at my wits end. I explained to Dennis that he is very angry much of the time. When we entered the office he was being his usual overactive little self. He was climbing all over the place during the first part of our appointment, climbing on me, the chairs, up and down, repeatedly. He would talk out of turn, and was intentionally being disruptive teasing his baby sister. With coaxing, he cooperated with Dennis as he tested his imagination functioning with the Rose visualization and he got it spot on. Once we knew he was functioning correctly in his imagination Dennis went on to teach us some mind management techniques of how to control his imagination and by doing so how it adjusts his emotions. While we were discussing things in response to disciplining him he said “I hate you” to me. He had been saying this a lot and was mad much of the time.
Dennis asked him if he were angry now, and he said yes. He asked him to put his finger on the spot where he felt he was the angriest. My son did so, and then Dennis asked him what was going on in his mind under his finger, the spot where he was so angry? My son said that he was mad his brother and sister! When asked why, “he said because they break my toys and mommy makes me share them, and I don’t want to share them, because they break my toys!”
Dennis challenged him, “Do you really hate your brother and sister, or do you just hate it when they break your toys?” He said, “I love my brother and sister, but I get so mad when they break my toys.” Then Dennis showed him how to move the thoughts, the memory, and the emotion of anger from the place under his finger to another place in his mind of desensitization. He did so and the anger and the experience were desensitized in his mind. It changed from not wanting to share to “maybe I can share my toys sometimes,” to “It makes by brother and sister happy when I share my toys.” Dennis asked him how he was feeling now, and he said, “Happy”, and was finally naturally smiling! “Is the anger gone? Yes, I don’t feel it.”
Dennis observed though that he was still competing with him for my attention. He would keep interrupting us with questions such as, “Can we go now?” Dennis asked him to come over by him and asked him to now close his eyes down and go inside again, and think about what he wanted from his mommy? He did so and said, “I want my mommy to love me more.” Dennis had him put his finger on his head where he felt that he wasn’t loved enough. He did so and then he showed my son how to adjust mommy’s love for him, turning it up, increasing the feeling that he is loved and lovable. It has been six months now after our appointment with Dennis he has yet to say “I hate you” to me.
Dennis showed him how to adjust his emotions, using mind management principles to either turn his emotions up or down, depending on how he wanted to feel. He felt more loved and secure, and then surprisingly he immediately quieted down and all of the hyperactivity left his body. He stopped climbing on everything including me, mom.
He then asked Dennis if he had some toys with which he could play? Dennis gave him some paper and pencil and asked him to draw some pictures. He did so and focused in on the task of drawing him and mommy. For the first time in his life he actually was entertained to draw a picture and drew a picture with detail. I didn’t think he was capable of doing so. His grandmother who was also in the room, said that this was the first time they had ever seen him slow down long enough to focus on anything. She stated that they could never get him to attempt learning numbers or his alphabet, and so forth.
He didn’t pester his baby sister or me for the rest of the time. I continue to work with him at home from what we learned in the session and from reading the book, “Spiritual Mind Management.” It’s his special treatment and he has named it, “head magic”. He comes and asks me to do “head magic” on him if he is emotionally uncomfortable. He even came to me when I was upset at him and did “head magic” on me! My sweet little affectionate boy is back! He still has his moments, and will only work with me on doing “head magic” when he wants to, but he is doing so much better. He knows that he is in charge of his emotions, and now it is a choice to do so.

A Struggling 25 Year Old
One of the most significant blessings in my life has been to learn about and receive hypnotherapy. Outside of my religion, nothing in my life has been as satisfying, encouraging, enabling, or uplifting. I am a 25-year-old man who has struggled with depression, anger, and other effects of sexual abuse from another male. Some of these effects include impulses towards pornography, same-sex attraction, and self-abuse. My life was in serious straits when I was first introduced to Dennis.
When I was 23, I was on the verge of throwing my life away to sexual addictions. I am a religious man, and I have felt ashamed of my emotions and actions, and I didn’t understand why or how my life had turned into such a mess. I had struggled for years to overcome my feelings of resentment towards myself and the reality of my bad habits and my struggle with same-sex attraction, and I had gotten to the point where the burdens felt unendurable. I felt that for the most part, my therapists were unable to help me, that my family was let down, and that my religious leaders were shaming and condemning, and my God either uncaring or unhearing. It was at this point in my life that I actually decided to throw in the towel on living the life I wanted, (having a wife and family) to live a life of homosexuality, self-abuse and pornography, with no family, no church, and no God. As the old saying goes, “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em!” My mother, ignorant of my plans, must have had a stroke of inspiration and somehow convinced me to go see Dennis. She wanted me to see what I thought of his mind-management classes which she had previously attended.
I will admit I was not overjoyed to visit Dennis the first time. This feeling was at first strengthened by the fact that Dennis does not believe in the traditional definitions of addiction. Dennis took away my excuses, with challenging and logical questions and explanations. He clearly explained how my repeated actions and behaviors developed from concepts that originated from my stimulus experiences. He taught me that whatever we have learned to do, we can challenge and change, that I could learn to do things in a new and different in a healthy way. He taught me that through choice and accountability in my thoughts, beliefs, and concepts, I can choose which thoughts I allow to formulate into emotions, which then transfer into my actions and behavior. He taught me that I am responsible for becoming response – able. I am now better able to respond to the generated thoughts that come from the stimuluses’ I receive. He believes the so-called “pornography addiction” is a consistent misuse of our agency, a string of inappropriate choices, giving way to impulses which were only spontaneously and ineffectually challenged and then left unchanged. He taught me new mental skills which are personally revitalizing and empowering. When I take the time to use these tools, I am able not only to have self-control, but I am also able to see my misconceptions for what they are, which then leads to understanding myself better. Dennis took away my ability to say “That’s just the way I am,” as well as all my other ways of saying “It’s time to give up,” because all my excuses were grounded in my misconceptions, and he helped me see them for what they were-falsehoods and fear.
I gradually began to see that my inappropriate choices were giving me new ways to grow and change my entire vision of life. I grew more comfortable expressing my feelings and struggles, and I found that happiness began to permeate my life in a way I had not experienced for years. Giving my emotions a name and a voice helped me see my emotions as something more concrete than abstract chemical processes in the brain. This concept helped me connect my emotions with the thoughts that were generating my emotional content in the first place. Hypnotherapy gave me a way to manage my inner voice that generated my emotions, as opposed to suffocating or trying to ignore my thoughts and feelings. I learned that my emotions do not define me, that my emotions are coming from my accepted thoughts, and are not me-that was a game-changer for me- I am not my emotions, and I have real control over them! I have the ability to change my mental template, and immediately dissolve old emotional content, thereby allowing for new emotions based on the new more truth-full thoughts. This knowledge has helped me to escape so much of the shame that I felt, and the anger and depression that I felt in such extremes have vanished almost completely.
I want to be clear though, hypnotherapy is not a magic pill that gets rid of all your problems. I still have to fight the battle of choice-whether or not I will accept inappropriate thoughts from time to time about pornography and same sex attraction-that battle is still mine to fight, but I now understand my power better. I still get angry, I still get confused and depressed sometimes when I am not managing my thoughts and actions well, but I know how to fight now. While I have received help from other therapists that I have been to over the years, I feel that I have gained most from hypnotherapy because it permeates the deepest part of myself-my inner voice and emotions. I don’t need to spend the rest of my life running and hiding from problems, or talking endlessly about them either. I don’t need to give in to my problems, be they past, present, or future, because, as I have learned through hypnotherapy, I have the ability to choose what I will become, and who I allow myself to be. I choose what voice I listen to, what decisions to live by, what actions I choose to allow. I can choose to live by truth, and that is what sets me free.
To close, I also want to note that hypnotherapy has blessed my spiritual life as well. I was led to Dennis when I felt most abandoned by God, and I intended to abandon Him. Ironically, hypnotherapy has expanded my view of Him, and drawn me closer to Him. I am better able to see the beautiful and fearsome powers and abilities that He has granted each one of us in our lives. I am learning that my spiritual life is more complete, more satisfying, more efficacious, and more beneficial to those around me when I take the time to use the gifts God has helped me find in hypnotherapy. I am a different man when I use these skills, and I am able to use some of the same procedures and ideas expressed in hypnotherapy to bless the lives of my family and friends when they face trials and difficulties of their own to better see things as they really are. I am now planning on going to graduate school in therapy, as well as becoming certified in hypnotherapy so that I can pass on the emboldening and inspiring tools that have forever changed me.
Comments from an LDS Missionary Elder currently serving in the mission field, who has had constant self-abuse issues for many years and was still experiencing the problem. We did some sessions over SKYPE. He is fully on track and has his temple recommend again:
Hello Brother Parker, the last couple weeks have been absolutely amazing, I have been doing very well and remain true to my covenants, in fact I get my recommend back tomorrow.
I have been transferred to a new area, I am now up in ____________, and it’s really beautiful here by the coast. There are a lot of people here and we have already been able to build up our teaching pool. The work is going very well, we have a baptism scheduled for the 28th, and the ward has been very supportive.
I am really appreciative of the help that I received from our sessions, your book, and CD. I have struggled with my issue for a long time and am now relived to have effective strategies to fight back against the temptations of the adversary. At first I wasn't so sure how hypnotherapy would help me but I quickly learned that this was going to help me a lot with what I was going through and will also help me with later issues in my life.
It took a few weeks to understand and practice the Mind Management techniques, but once I got the hang of things and understood how to handle the situation I was able to put aside and control my old habits. Honestly though, I feel so much better now because I have so much more control over who I am, and what I desire to be. I am much more confident and very pleased with my way of life. It has been an amazing blessing! I know I will continue to read over what I have been taught so it stays fresh in my mind.
I'll keep in touch,
A Young Married Man with a Wife and Children
For over ten years I had struggled with a deep addiction to pornography and masturbation. I tried everything to stop, but nothing seemed to work for me. I had gone to see so many therapists and counselors, but they were of no help what so ever. Although some of the strategies they gave me would provide me with temporary relief, it wouldn’t be long before I would relapse again. So after many years of trying to overcome this awful addiction and failing each time, I decided to just simply give up. I knew that relapse was inevitable so why waste so much time, energy, and money if all it’s going to do is set me up for failure? That saying, “once an addict, always an addict” really resonated with me. I believed that I was going to carry this addiction to the grave, or so I thought.
Then I met Dennis Parker, who for the first time ever gave me hope that I could change. But I’ll admit that at first I was very skeptical. I wasn’t sure that hypnosis would work for me. I had never heard of hypnosis as being method to treat addictions. I didn’t actually believe in it to be honest. I believed it was all superstition. The idea seemed so foreign and even mythical to me. I remembered all seeing movies of people undergoing hypnosis and how bizarre and scary it was. But I figured why not give it a try. I mean what do I have to lose? I have tried everything else.
My first appointment with Dennis went very well. He told me that if I apply his methods and teachings that I WILL never look at porn again, or even have the desire to. I thought it was too good to be true. I had been told this many times before. He told me to listen to the CD every night before I go to bed. So I did that. I listened to the CD for the first time and it was AMAZING. After one time of listening to it, I was already noticing a huge difference. My confidence and desire to change grew significantly. I’ve now been listening to it every night for the last three months and I don’t know what I would do without it. The CD and Dennis’s teachings have helped me more than all of the therapists and other programs combined! My friends and family have noticed a big change in me. They have told me that I seem a lot happier; I’m smiling more; I’m not as negative about things. I know a lot of this is because of the CD. I’m not exactly sure how it works, but it does! It may seem a little awkward at first, but just do it and trust me you will see great results immediately.
I’m now on my way to becoming completely free of this addiction, which I don’t see as an addiction anymore, and that is something that Dennis has taught me. He told me that it’s just a result of “stinking thinking” that I have developed over the years. Knowing this has really made all the difference. I hope that more people can utilize Dennis’s teachings.
Sutton Clinical Services
First of all, I want you to know that I was a huge skeptic before I saw your work. I was relating hypnotherapy too much to what you see in the stage shows. At our office we provide counseling to children, adolescents, and adults, most of whom have suffered great traumas in their lives. In many cases, the mental health therapies we were using were not helping them overcome their trauma symptoms as quickly as we would like. When you offered to come to our office once a week, although I didn’t have high expectations, I agreed.
I was so surprised at the rapid and amazing results I saw on that first day. My husband had struggled with guilt and extreme sadness due to the death of his son eight years earlier. This was the first thing he chose to work on. In less than a half-hour his sadness was replaced with a sense of peace and acceptance. The guilt was gone and he was able to think of his son without reliving the trauma of his death. This is just one example, but there are many others just as dramatic.
Thank you Dennis, for opening my eyes to a very useful and effective treatment approach. I have changed from a skeptic to a believer and am delighted with the results I have seen with the clients that you worked with as well as the ones that I am now, working with using hypnotherapy. I appreciate your hypnotherapy school and the in-depth training that you give.

A Concerned Mothers Journey Through Mind Management and Hypnotherapy with her son
My son came to me sobbing intensely, after being in therapy weekly for about a year, he proceeded to tell me that pornography was ruining his life, it was taking over his life. He was suicidal and so terribly unhappy. I talked to his therapist and he felt he needed something more powerful. I told him, “I’d do anything for my son what do I need to do.” This is when we went to see Dennis Parker.
My son and I were both very skeptical and didn’t really understand what hypnotherapy meant. Dennis soon taught us about mind management. This is it! Mind management is what he needs. I needed to learn more about mind management too. Everything that comes up in life we get to choose how to handle it. Yes, we might have an addiction, but we have to stop and Be Present when making a choice and then really concentrate on consciously making the right choice for ourselves. After my experience with Dennis Parker a big chunk of what hypnotherapy now means to me is mind management and dealing with things that have happened in the past. We must learn from these experiences and then focus on moving forward.
The first thing that my son and I learned is that he and I are Normal. The thoughts, feelings, worries, anxieties, or depression, and so on that, He or I might experience are what others experience also, at one point or another in our lives. What is not normal is allowing these thoughts, feelings, worries, anxieties, or depression, and so on to start taking over our lives so that we are unable to live our lives and be happy. The second thing I learned was about how we talk to ourselves, because consciously when we talk to ourselves we don’t know it but it subconsciously is burned into our habits. We need to always talk nice to ourselves. Third, I learned how wonderful affirmations are. Write down what you want and then change it to what you already are, for example: I want to be happy. –Changes to- I am happy. Make an affirmations list and read it five times in a row and do this four or five times a day, to reprogram your brain. You will instantly feel like a weight has been lifted. This list is always changing according to your needs.
There is so much more that I learned, but these are my top three. Another experience that we had with Dennis that really opened my eyes was when my son during a hypnotherapy session discovered why he had felt so emotionally needy. My son's dad and I were divorced when he was four. The thoughts I had during this time were what is wrong with me?, Why am I not good enough, pretty enough?, Why am I not loveable?, Why did he leave me?, It is my fault., and so on. Every possible negative, destructive feeling and thought I could have, I did have. I was thirty-six years old at the time. What I didn’t realize was that, I was processing all of this pain at the age of 36, but he was trying to process the same pain and thoughts at the age of 4. He had all the same insecurities and destructive thoughts in his sweet little four year old person, and had still been living with them all these years. This realization was excruciatingly painful, no matter what an amazing mom I tried to be and how much love he got from me he still needed to heal.
This experience from when he was little has influenced his thinking about himself in destructive ways. He had so much anxiety about never being loved by a girlfriend, and never being married, or having children, that he turned to video games and pornography which in turn made him more depressed, and suicidal. His negative, obsessive thoughts just took over and he was on a continuous spiral downward. Now that he has been able to acknowledge these feelings he can let responsibility lie where it needs to and he can move forward and take responsibility for what lies ahead.
Today my son has a girlfriend, who loves him, and he loves her. She accepts him for who he is. I don’t know if this is the girl that he will choose to be with for the rest of his life, but he knows that he will be ok. At times he still struggles with things, as he climbs the ladder of life he takes step back once in a while, but the most amazing thing is that he is making progress even if it is just a little progress at a time. He is DOING not just Trying! He will have to work hard and be mindful, and present everyday of his life, but know he has hope. I will always be indebted to Dennis and forever grateful for helping my son get his life back.

Our therapeutic approach with these issues consists of 2 layers: (1) helping the patient develop critical skills to manage emotional surges (rather than being managed by them); and (2) to address the emotional and cognitive undercurrents that often undergird dysfunctional and unwanted behaviors. However, if a troubling or traumatic experience has been repressed, forgotten, or imbedded deeply into a patient’s subconscious, it can be difficult and very time consuming to identify and dissolve the dilemma.
We have found that Dennis Parker’s hypnotherapy, combined with his unique “Spiritual Mind Management” program, quickly identifies unconscious emotional undercurrents, skillfully desensitizes them, and adds an extra layer of emotional management, that provides confidence and permanence to patient’s recovery efforts.
Recently, Dennis worked with one of our patients that had been diligent in daily recovery efforts for several months, but had not been able to sustain his sexual addiction sobriety for longer than a week. In just 2 sessions of hypnotherapy, Dennis helped this patient identify a deeply buried issue, desensitized it, and instructed the patient how to better manage unwanted thoughts, memories, and emotions. To date, this patient has not had a relapse.
Another acquaintance stopped by our clinic, suffering with night terrors and unbearable cravings to relapse (after almost 2 years of sobriety). She had been given the financial approval for 8 sessions at another agency. She agreed to meet with Dennis Parker for a session or two, in an attempt to identify a specific issue to work on, thereby accelerating the effectiveness of her pre-approved therapy program. She had one session with Dennis Parker. In a follow-up phone call, she said, “the nightmares and craving are gone. They haven’t returned. At this point, I don’t think I will need any more therapy.”
Dennis Parker is skillful, effective, and extremely efficient in his hypnotherapy and “Spiritual Mind-Management” approach.

- "I've been to various counselors over the past 30 years looking for solutions and healing for several childhood traumas that have been life altering. It seemed like I was sentenced to drag around this "dead wood" for the rest of my life. Through the recommendation of my Bishop and Stake President I met with Dennis Parker. My understanding of hypnotherapy was extremely limited. I soon learned that this method is actually something that could heal and resolve my early traumas. These early childhood events had caused me to become "derailed" in my thought processes about myself and others. As I identified these issues, they began to fill in the puzzle pieces as to my personal belief system that dominated my thought processes and actions. It was an incredible experienced to understand how truth can set you free. The process of discovering how my thoughts generate feelings, our imagination will amplify these feelings, and then we act them out has been life changing for me. For the first time in my life I feel healthy, whole and ready to look forward down my path rather than behind. The mind chatter that dragged me down all day long is finally silenced. I have the power to keep myself living in the present and not the past. I have the power to be happy, loving, kind, empathetic, and generous any time I need to be. I have better clarity, purpose, and a healthy belief system of myself. I'm learning techniques that will reinforce my "Belief filter system" to protect myself from lies and misconceptions. In each therapy session I felt in complete control of my memories, and ability to navigate the process of healing them. This is the first time in my life that I actually feel free from my crippled perceptions of myself and others. I'm finally able to love with all my heart, because my heart no longer hurts. I completely recommend this type of therapy for anyone."

- As a bishop counseling with individuals who are battling various behavioral problems, having a resource like Dennis Parker has been a real blessing. From couples trying to make changes for the survival of their marriage, to individuals trying to break free of addictive habits, Dennis has been able to provide an approach to their problems through hypnotherapy that has proven to be both effective and timely. Positive results have come quickly as these individuals have applied the skills they are taught for making difficult changes in their lives. Dennis recognizes the need to couple his techniques with the spiritual counsel for which I am responsible, as we work together to assist these people in overcoming their challenges. I am very grateful for the skill, insights, and sensitivity with which Dennis helps me bless the members of my ward who stand in need of a little extra help from time to time.

- For more than fifty years as an attorney, an elected public official, and as Chairman of The Lighted Candle Society I have been actively involved in the battle against pornography. I am frequently asked to recommend to parents and ecclesiastical leaders a therapist that I am confident could assist a loved one who has become involved with pornography, become free of its influence and effects. I know many therapists who are well trained and extremely competent. Dennis Parker is the only therapist that I know that has consistently been able to teach a victim of dependency upon sexually explicit materials new mental skills, as tools, that work consistently to desensitize the temptations to be involved in such things. The most important result of Dennis Parker’s therapy is his ability to train the victim on how to overcome the temptation to return to involvement with obscenity.

- Through my service as a Bishop and Stake President the past several years I have counseled with hundreds of people dealing with marital, parental, suicidal, depression, self-esteem, and separation anxiety challenges. The number of those battling pornography and numerous other addictive behaviors continue to escalate.
My efforts to assist the good people struggling with these difficulties have often included referrals to scores of different counselors and therapists. Unfortunately, after attending numerous counseling sessions and incurring a great deal of financial expense, a substantial percentage of the individuals referred for counseling have not overcome their problems, are still grappling with their addictions and remain dependent upon their counselors.
After being introduced to Dennis Parker I carefully studied his character and counseling procedures and then began referring people to his practice. The feedback and results from those I have referred to Dennis, along with many other individuals who have been referred by my fellow church leaders have been superb. Dennis’ counseling techniques rapidly identify the root problems, teach very effective tools, instill personal accountability and typically resolve the issues in 2-4 visits. His methods are honest, spiritually rooted, fast and economical. He has assisted those I have referred to preserve their marriages, overcome their emotional challenges and conquer their addictions. A rapidly growing group of my young men and women are now serving successful LDS missions that would not otherwise have been able to do so without Dennis’ counseling.
I recommend Dennis Parker, without reservation and would be happy to provide additional information regarding my experiences regarding his results to any who would care to contact me.
