"Success is Helping Others Succeed"

Hello, I'm Dean Ellis, founder and principal hypnotist at Paradigm Hypnosis. I first became interested in hypnosis and self-hypnosis over thirty years ago, when I was still a teenager in high school, and I have used them ever since. They continue to have major impacts on my life.

My professional career outside of hypnosis involved software development, database administration, team management, employee development, and executive leadership of the global technical support organizations for two major open source database companies. Although I used hypnosis in all these roles, here I use it to empower the lives and work of individuals directly.

I have spent my life defining my own success in terms of helping others succeed, whether that was helping my teams, my companies, or my customers. That same passion drives me today: I work best as a force multiplier, effecting high impact changes in the lives of my clients and, through them, the lives of everyone else.

It is fair to say that I am highly rational, analytical, and both scientifically and technically minded. I love solving problems and making improvements. In the world of "Myers Briggs personality types", I am definitively INTJ. My approach to hypnosis reflects this.
