PALM HARBOR FLORIDA JUNE 5, 2023. The International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association (IMDHA) recently recognized board certified medical hypnotherapist, Patricia V. Scott, PhD, with the Life Diplomate Award at their annual Hypno Expo in Orlando Florida on May 20th.
Patricia V. Scott was recognized for over three decades of contributions to Hypnotherapy and dedicated support of the IMDHA.
“This was an honor beyond my imagination that placed me among so many of my great teachers and mentors”, said Scott. “I began this journey in the early 1970’s when I overcame a severe back injury using only the power of my mind. Having accomplished what doctors said was impossible, I went on to a 20 year career as a singer, actor, dancer, and songwriter. Then, in 1992 I became certified in hypnosis and immediately fell in love with medical hypnotherapy. This ultimately led to my creating the first Medical Hypnotherapy Certification specialty training to be approved through IMDHA. In addition to working with private clients, I have had the privilege of teaching hypnotherapy as a Certified Master Trainer for the International Association of Counselors & Therapists (IACT) and medical hypnotherapy through UP Hypnosis Institute, an approved IMDHA school, both in-person and on-line to people all over the world.”
Patricia V. Scott, “Patti”, is founder and President of UP Hypnosis Institute, a division of Unlimited Possibilities Hypnosis Incorporated, located in Palm Harbor, Florida. Scott helps clients with medical issues as well as smoking cessation, stress, sports performance, weight issues, and more. Scott is certified in clinical, medical, immune system, addictions, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP),chronic pain & hypnotic anesthesiology, spiritual & metaphysical counseling, and a plethora of other modalities too numerous to mention.
“Besides overcoming the back injury, I have done all dental work without anesthesia, including periodontal surgery. I corrected my eyesight using self-hypnosis and haven’t needed glasses in over two decades. Teaching others how to assist their clients to overcome physical and mental limitations is so gratifying. At 71 years old, I take zero medications and feel like I’m just getting started in this fascinating field.” As one of Scott’s first teachers, Dr. Bruce Lipton, explains, “…our new understanding of the Universe’s mechanics shows us how the physical body can be affected by the immaterial mind. Thoughts, the mind’s energy, directly influence how the physical brain controls the body’s physiology. Thought ‘energy’ can activate or inhibit the cell’s function-producing proteins via the mechanics of constructive and destructive interference…”
