this-is-it-smaller-xoxoxoHi! Thanks again for visiting our website! My name is Racquel and I’m a Certified Hypnotist and a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC), and an integrative life coach. Since 2013, I’ve helped thousands of people to achieve their well-being, performance, and change goals. I’ve trained with some of the most talented people in the change work, hypnosis, neurolinguistic programming (NLP), and the fields of health and wellness and professional life coaching. Most recently, I garnered a master’s degree in Health and Wellness Coaching from the Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH) in Laurel, Maryland. I am also certified in Rapid Resolution Therapy, medical support hypnosis, numerous addiction freedom protocols, and Reiki II.

Hypnosis Columbia was established in October 2013. Racquel is thrilled to have helped her community and clients to live healthier, happier lives! She has helped people to quit smoking, lose weight, release stress and trauma, resolve addictions, limiting self-beliefs and emotions, fears and phobias, and to feel more peace in their lives!  She has helped clients to regain their personal power, heal mentally and emotionally, and to experience more confidence, balance, harmony, serenity, and joy in their lives!  If you feel stuck, either physically, mentally, spiritually, academically, personally, etc. – Hypnosis Columbia’s Racquel Knight can help! Racquel will compassionately and passionately help you to achieve your goals and dreams!

Originally from California, Racquel served 34 years with the Department of Defense, including 20 years in the active-duty U.S. Air Force as an intelligence analyst and language specialist. Racquel embraces a client centered approach and believes in her client’s innate ability to heal and transform themselves. Racquel has a phenomenal daughter, Rhian, who lives on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina, and a devilish little cat, named Gracie.
