Michael Burney, NESTA-Certified Sports Hypnotist

Columbia Hypnotist, Michael Burney, first found interest in hypnosis as a ten year old. His father had a book on hypnosis in his library and Mike would read the information with great fascination. In college at Appalachian State University, Mike had the opportunity to work in private introductory sessions with an ASU professor who was a certified hypnotherapist. He learned the basics of hypnosis and, most importantly, began to shed his myths and misunderstandings.

Fast forward years later and Mike was teaching “Spin” classes at three Columbia gym facilities on a regular basis. He began to receive numerous emails with offers for additional exercise trainer certifications and, one day, he received an application to become certified in sports hypnosis from the National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association. Having had a long interest in hypnosis, Mike applied a successfully completed the sports hypnotist training program. It was after his certification that Mike established this website to make it easy for athletes to apply and receive customized sports hypnotic audios. He has helped scores of athletes improve their performance, get out of ruts, and release fears over the years of providing hypnosis audios through this website.

Several years later, Mike returned for additional training to become certified as a consulting hypnotist followed by years of advanced hypnosis training. Today he continues to see clients, in one-to-one sessions, at his Columbia, SC hypnosis office, Columbia Hypnosis.

While Mike sees many athletes at Columbia Hypnosis, he also works with a wide range of clients including, but not limited to: smoking cessation, weight loss, stress management, chronic pain management, phobia release, and a wide range of other client needs.

For more information on private session appointments in person, or by SKYPE, you can email Mike at mburney@columbiahypnosis.com.

“Most clients with whom I work are stuck in a state they desire to change. I have a passion for guiding them through processes which allow them to get “unstuck” and achieve better health, performance, and quality of life.”
