Harley Sears, Consulting Hypnotist

You may be here because you want to stop smoking, lose weight, or gain clarity about the direction in your life. No matter what the reason, I want to help.

My professional journey began over 17 years ago working as a mental health specialist at a psychiatric hospital. There I was first introduced to the idea of mind-body medicine, and lead weekly group sessions focused on guided meditation and relaxation.

After discovering my passion for hypnotism, I studied at the Hypnosis Motivation Institute and John F. Kennedy University. I also received specialized training in tobacco treatment from Mayo Clinic and the University of Massachusetts Medical School.

Throughout my career, I have completed over one thousand hours of advanced training, hundreds of hours of supervision, and exceeded the "10,000 hour rule" in my private practice. I am a professional member of the National Guild of Hypnotists, The Center for Mindful Eating, and the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California, Berkeley.

As a Consulting Hypnotist I help ordinary, everyday people with ordinary, everyday problems. You will find that I am professional and approachable, and offer a comfortable, caring environment to explore your goals. I can be reached at (479) 685-1530 or hypnosis@harleysears.com.


I work with a wide range of issues concerning general self-improvement. I also offer hypnosis related to medical and psychological issues when referred by a licensed health care professional.

  • Stop smoking or chewing tobacco.
  • Weight loss, mindful eating.
  • Reduce stress and worry.
  • Break unwanted habits.
  • Increase happiness.
  • Relax before a medical procedure.
  • Adjust to a relationship break-up.
  • Overcome irrational fear.
  • Develop self-confidence.
  • Improve sleep quality.

I recommend you begin with a program of three sessions. Visits cost $110 each, or if you pay for a three session package the fee is reduced to $300. Free hypnotic recordings are available to reinforce your success.

I accept cash, checks, debit, credit, flexible spending and health savings cards.


Hypnosis is a very pleasant and deeply relaxing state of focused attention in which beneficial suggestions can be given directly to the subconscious mind, enabling you to make positive changes. It is used to build new behaviors or to help attain personal and professional goals. Scientific studies, many of them conducted at major research universities and medical schools around the world, leave no doubt hypnosis is a safe and effective tool that can benefit your health and well-being.

My first visit was nearly 12 years ago while I was a nursing student. The sessions helped me cope with the everyday stress of school, and later with the worry of passing my state board exam. Over the years, Harley has helped me stop smoking, lose weight, and adopt a healthier lifestyle. I highly recommend him to anyone considering hypnosis.
