Meet Racquel

this-is-it-smaller-xoxoxoRacquel Knight is a certified hypnotist, integrative life and health coach and has trained in Rapid Resolution Therapy, neurolinguistic programming, and other rapid healing protocols.  Racquel created Hypnosis Columbia in October 2013 and has helped clients to release trauma, addictions, limiting self beliefs, stress, fears and phobias — AND — to create more calm, peace, a sense of power and control, healing, balance, freedom, power, and joy in their lives. 

Racquel has also helped people improve their relationships with self and others, to find their creative passions, to improve their eating and exercise, self-care habits. If you are stuck in any area: body, mind, spirit, school, work, personal life: hypnosis merged with life, and health coaching is a brilliant way to achieve your best in these areas!

Racquel served 20 years in the U.S. Air Force as a linguist and an analyst, employs a client centered approach, and can help you to achieve your goals and desired outcomes. Originally from California, Racquel has lived all over the world and moved to Columbia, Maryland in 2002. She has a phenomenal daughter, Rhian, who is a law enforcement officer on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina.
