About Angela

Angela Barrus

Behavioral Therapist Angela Barrus specializes in clinical hypnotherapy and coaching, using a powerful and gentle approach that helps one achieve balance in mind, body, and emotions. After personally benefiting from the life-changing results of hypnotherapy, Angela decided that she wanted to bless the lives of others and sought post-graduate training to do so. Angela works with people from all walks of life, from students to executives, to help them overcome personal obstacles and help them reach their highest potential. She meets with her clients one-on-one and meets them where they are and helps them get where they want to be. Her approach is warm and compassionate.

The method of hypnotherapy that Angela practices was created by Jim DiGiralamo, a master in the field. It is far beyond traditional hypnotherapy and is not suggestion-based but rather symptom-based. The heart of this gentle, effective, and powerful therapy is the personal growth of the individual. Many have benefited, even those who felt that they had exhausted all options for help.

Angela received her Bachelor of Science degree from Idaho State University. She then went on to receive her credentials from California Institute of Healing Arts and Sciences (CIHAS), one of only two hypnotherapy schools in the nation accredited by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training (ACCET). The school is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education to provide the training necessary to certify clinical hypnotherapists. CIHAS is recognized by the U.S. government and approved by the Board of Registered Nurses.

Angela has a lot of fun teaching workshops in the Seattle area, Seattle’s Eastside, and the Snoqualmie Valley where her private practice is located. Sessions can be enjoyed in the comfort of one’s own home or office via phone or Skype.
