Could Hypnosis Really Change Mel Gibson? Experts Say YES!

Mel Gibson received hypnotherapy to help him deal with the stress from his bitter battle with Oksana Grigorieva — and two therapists tell us it might actually help him with his anger management and drinking
problems, too!

Mel Gibson was reportedly hypnotized  to help deal with the stress of his domestic abuse allegations by baby mama Oksana Grigorieva and ensuing investigation by the LA County’s Department and Department of Children and Family Services. But could hypnosis really make a difference with this much drama going on?

Experts say yes! “We become our own worst enemy. We’re not putting you into trance, but taking you out of a bad trance,” Dale Jaffe, partner of Mind Matters Restorative Hypnotherapy in LA, tells

Sessions at Mind Matters typically last two hours. Patients relax in a Lazy Boy in a darkened room with their legs in the air using yoga bolsters; they listen to the therapist via headphones.

“It’s like going into an isolation tank,” Jaffe says. “They really feel awareness but they don’t feel the trappings of their bodies. Incredible things happen.”

He adds, “Mel Gibson is probably in a very bad trance. He’s very caught up in a lot of negativity and that’s become his norm. If he had the opportunity to drop out of that for some time with hypnotherapy, then it would be helpful. It’s like taking a vacation.”

Believe it or not, Mel could see major improvements in his anger management and alcohol related issues very quickly if he keeps up with the hypnotherapy.

“One of the reasons people really like the therapy because it’s short term. Often they feel profound changes after the first session,” Jaffe says.

Hypnotherapist Maria Olga Paiz, owner of Solutions 2 Life in Beverly Hills, explains how hypnotherapy also helps in the addiction recovery

“We find the reason behind the addictions, which is usually stress,”she says. “We target the stress and once the stress has been targeted, the craving for alcohol is weakened. The physical addictions are not the hard part to overcome. Your subconscious mind is where all the behaviors are.”

Mel reportedly underwent 10 days of treatment at his Malibu home…does that mean he’s a changed man? We certainly hope so, because at the moment he sounds more like a monster than a man.

Mel Gibson will definitely benefit from hypnosis. He needs to learn to take a deep breath and think before he reacts.
He has a very strong character and he has let it become out of hands, when he learns to take a deep breath and think before reacting he would become the master of his own mind.

Our mind is like a horse, we can either let go wild and crazy or we can tame it and discipline it, then we become the masters of our own minds

Actually Mind Matters is not related in any way to Rick Collingwood the hypnotist who treated Mel Gibson. His company is called Mind Motivations and is very reputable just in case you might be thinking it is the same entity. You can view more about it here:
