Lisa and her husband, Ken, launched Thompson Hypnotherapy LLC in March of 2017 after they both experienced a life-changing transformation using hypnotherapy to achieve permanent weight loss.  Lisa has over 1500 hours in hands-on classroom training and is certified as a Hypnotherapist by the National Guild of Hypnotists, the American Council for Hypnotic Examiners and the Atlanta Center for Hypnosis Training.  Although the application of hypnotherapy is extensive, the most popular areas of focus are permanent weight loss, stress mitigation and sales performance.   Although Lisa was born and raised in Ohio, she became a resident of Duluth in 1998 when she married her husband of 22 years, Mr. Ken Thompson, in Sharpsburg, GA.  Lisa and her husband, Ken, are avid hikers and when it is time to recharge, they head for the mountains of the Shining Rock Wilderness near Ashville or Amicalola Falls and the Appalachian Trial right here in our own back yard!
