Dr. Sheldon was often asked to treat women who were having unusual difficulties…helping women in premature labor stop having contractions without medication, and stopping pain when medication did not work…helped in circumstances of prolonged labor, post-partum depression, anxiety and fear…provided psychotherapy to fathers and couples.

He was of help to my patients as well as to several of my colleague’s’ patients.

Dr. Sheldon’s work is excellent…he successfully treated hundreds of patients…many physicians consistently referred their patients to him over a period of many years. …who could not get results using standard treatment strategies.

 

Dr. Sheldon was very competent in utilizing hypnotherapy, biofeedback and other medical-psychological interventions in both the treatment of actual medical disorders, e.g. hypertension, chronic pain, spastic colon, sexual dysfunction, T.M.J., etc., and in helping patients to deal with the psychological difficulties that accompany illness, e.g. anxiety and depression.

Hypnosis & Stress Management Dr. Sheldon presents on Princess Cruises  (1996) (length 65 minutes)

Almost all of my clients and patients see improvement within a couple of sessions. In fact I tell all of my new and prospective clients and patients that they will know within two meetings if I am the right therapist for them.

Of course specific results cannot be guaranteed, and vary from client/patient to client/patient. Motivation and positive participation, as well as suggested homework are required of the patient. The work is a partnership between therapist and client/patient.

I want to give my patients the best treatment I can, and create the best treatment strategy for each patient. To do this, it is important for me to have the necessary information regarding their condition, medical history, and past and concurrent treatment, with other health professionals. I, therefore, request consultation with my patients’ medical doctors, when I treat them for medical or psychiatric diagnoses, or at least a copy of their medical report, so that I can offer the best services possible.              

At times hypnosis or another modality of therapy is not recommended or appropriate for a particular client/patient. Whether hypnosis or another modality is utilized in the treatment of my client/patient is determined after consultation and evaluation of the client/patient, the specific issues presented the preference of the client/patient, and the client/patient’s medical history.

Regarding hypnotherapy: Hypnotherapy and hypnosis are usually very good treatment interventions. However, hypnosis is contraindicated under certain circumstances. For example, hypnosis is usually contraindicated for individuals who suffer from severe psychiatric disorders, such as psychoses and schizophrenia.

A proper diagnosis and evaluation of each client/patient must be made before hypnosis is utilized. It is only at the request of the client/patient and at the evaluation and discretion of Dr. Sheldon that hypnosis will be utilized.

Often Dr. Sheldon consults with other physicians treating his client/patient as part of the evaluation and the creation of the proper treatment strategies, as well as to ensure that there is safety, harmony, coordination and consistency among the health professionals treating the client/patient and the treatment modalities utilized. Dr. Sheldon will also ask the client/patient to provide information regarding any medications or other drugs taken.

Regarding Testimonials and Endorsements: Of course what is written in testimonials and endorsements and professional recommendations represents the author’s experiences and opinions.

All of the above is for the well-being of the client/patient, and to make sure that all work is done with high ethical and professional standards, legally, effectively. I want to give excellent service and wants each of his clients/patients to be as successful as possible.

If you have any questions, please feel welcome to contact me.
