What's New at Carolina Hypnotists

Triangle Hypnosis Group Elects 2022 Officers

Raleigh, N.C., January 1, 2022 — The Carolina Hypnotists, a professional educational group dedicated to advancing the field of hypnotism since 2010, has elected new officers for 2022.

Re-elected as secretary is Billy Shilling, operating MindWorks in Alexandria, Va. Re-elected as treasurer is Lauren Hall, owner of Modern Day Hypnosis in Greensboro ( Claire de la Varre of Positive Spiral Hypnosis in Chapel Hill ( will continue to serve as the group’s Webmaster.


The organization is a consortium of over 50 hypnotists and hypnosis instructors based in NC and beyond, certified by various professional organizations. Members of these organizations adhere to a Code of Ethics and Standards and are required to complete annual continuing education credits.


Members are located throughout North Carolina and since 2020, when the organization began offering monthly Zoom meetings, we have added several members from other states and countries.


Hypnosis is a state of quiet, focused awareness during which a person becomes more responsive to suggestions. It can be used to help reduce or eliminate how pain is experienced, lessen the stress response, improve how the immune system functions, help overcome compulsive, repetitive or unwanted behaviors, improve performance, and help overcome fears. It is also a useful adjunct to treatments for many medical and psychological disorders and conditions.


Our chapter meets via Zoom, and guests are welcome to attend meetings, which are usually held the fourth Thursday of each month from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. For more information, visit the group’s website,
