Robert W. Harrison, Director

My name is Robert Harrison and I’m the director of the Bay Area Hypnosis Center. I’m a board certified Hypnotist and certified Instructor through the National Guild of Hypnotists.

I teach at the annual conference and I train Hypnotherapists around the world in the field of clinical hypnosis – particularly in the areas of Weight Loss, Smoking Cessation, Stress Reduction, Habit Control and Human Performance.

In 2009 I was declared the #1 Smoking Cessation Therapist in the world by Smoke Free International, the leading provider of Smoking Cessation Hypnotherapy Instruction.

On a personal note, I quit a pack and a half a day smoking habit with hypnosis over 16 years ago and I thank God every day for it. It literally saved my life. I have a beautiful wife, Stephanie, and we’ve been blessed with 2 amazing boys, Daschel and Heath.

About Bay Area Hypnosis Center

The Bay Area Hypnosis Center, founded in 2002, has served thousands of Bay Area residents like and we have literally a 20 pound book of documented client results, as well as hundreds of video success stories, and dramatic ‘Before and After’ pictures. Numerous ex-smokers have now been smoke free over 9 years and we have several 100+ pound weight loss success stories.


Located right off 101 next to the Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos. Easily accessible from San Francisco, San Jose, and Hayward.

Even though I am personally involved in every case and will likely work with you one on one, you will also be paired with a team member who has successfully used Hypnosis to resolve the same issue. This will be comforting because you will know they truly can relate to your unique situation.

In fact, all Senior Hypnotherapists on staff were once a client just like yourself. Each one has maintained their results for at least 2+ years and undergone rigorous training and supervision. They know what it takes to be successful long term.

Our programs and lectures have been featured at Oracle, NEC, Electronic Arts, VISA, General Dynamics, Corporate GAP, and REACH Corporate Fitness.

We have an A+ Rating with the Better Business Bureau, were recognized by the local mayor as a Green Certified Business, and have over 214 reviews with a 99% favorable rate on City Search, Google Reviews, Yelp, and other sites.
