The word “hypnosis” is derived from the Greek word hypnos, or “sleep.”
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapists utilize techniques that induce deep levels of relaxation, or trance state, otherwise known as the healing state.
A person in a deeply focused state is unusually responsive to an idea or image, but this does not mean that a hypnotist can control the person’s mind and free will. On the contrary, hypnosis can actually teach people how to master their own states of awareness. By doing so they can affect their own bodily functions and psychological responses.
Actually, hypnosis can be instrumental in helping people master and guide their own levels of awareness, and facilitate improved psychological and mind/body responses. A quiet mind is a powerful mind.
Let Sacramento Hypnotherapy help you achieve that quiet powerful mind.
Maude Schellhous founded Sacramento Hypnotherapy following completion of training as a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist (CCHT) in 1995. She then achieved her Certificate of Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in 1999, and has since helped thousands of people reach their goals and often achieve what they did not think was possible.
It is Maude’s belief that discovering inner wisdom holds a path to many different areas of our subconscious where we can unlock blockages that can hold us back mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. She is passionate in her work as a Clinical Hypnotherapist, and is most proud when her clients achieve their goals. In 2013 Maude founded California School of Hypnotherapy to teach others how to facilitate healing and empowerment through this beautiful work.

Tiffany is a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist (CCHT)who has also been in the Healing Arts for over 12 years as a Board Certified Massage, Bodywork and Energy Practitioner, seeing clients one-on-one and providing a safe space for many who have come in with issues beyond the physical discomfort which initially brought them in. This has given her a unique perspective on how the power of the thoughts and emotions we hold onto affect the body, mind and spirit.
She has experience holding space and providing support for people dealing with many issues including grief from losing a spouse, parent or child, dealing with chronic pain, autoimmune disorders, fear and PTSD related to the pandemic, postpartum depression or other events in their lives.
Her passion is working with people and the particular issues we uniquely face when we have dealt with trauma in our lives, from childhood trauma, to the challenges of parenthood or divorce, to sexual assault and situations or events that we don’t label as “trauma” despite the deep wounding and effects on our lives. We face traumas in so many situations just walking as humans in this world.
She is enthusiastic about assisting her clients in exploring their own inner wisdom, to transform their lives by releasing the triggers, limiting beliefs and core issues that are no longer serving them and integrating the qualities they want to move towards alignment with their authentic self.
Liliana is a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist (CCHT) and a graduate of the California School of Hypnotherapy where she completed her training in 2021.
Originally from Peru, Liliana has spent a majority of her life teaching and motivating people to achieve their goals through various physical activities. She was a spinning instructor for ten years in Lima, Peru where she trained thousands of students at gyms throughout the City. Shortly after relocating to Sacramento in 2015, she acted on her passion for dancing to become a certified Zumba instructor and has since taught hundreds of Zumba classes. In addition to dancing, Liliana loves her regular walks and yoga sessions.
Like millions of other people who have relocated to a different country, Liliana’s transition from her daily life in Peru to her new life in the United States was not without its challenges. This journey inspired her to read books and attend seminars dealing with the untapped power of the subconscious mind in hopes that it might help explain why she was experiencing certain feelings and moods. Having become fascinated with the subject, she eventually discovered hypnotherapy and soon realized it was the perfect medium to combine her love of helping people with her fascination about the power of the mind.
Whether you need help losing weight, managing pain, reducing stress and anxiety or generally dealing with emotional issues, Liliana will use her experience and passion to help you regain control of your life. Liliana is fluent in both English and Spanish.
