All About Racquel

this-is-it-smaller-xoxoxoRacquel Knight created Hypnosis Columbia in October 2013 as a result of decades of cumulative experiences and a desire to help others. After decades of service to helping others change and transform their lives, Racquel became a Certified Hypnotist, Integrative Life Coach, and Hypnosis Trainer; and, most recently certified in Rapid Recovery Therapy. Almost exclusively referral based, Hypnosis Columbia has helped persons to release trauma, addictions, limiting self beliefs (Examples: “I am not worthy,” “I am not loveable,” or “I am not safe” are some of the most common), stress, fears and phobias. Racquel helps people often to transform their lives rather quickly compared to other types of therapy. Racquel served 20 years in the active duty Air Force, and accordingly has helped many men and women to release the after effects associated with combat and military sexual trauma experiences. Racquel employs a client centered approach and teaches all her clients self-hypnosis and self-directed neuroplasticity (how to rewire your neural networks) and offers her unique talents to help her clients to experience a sense of inner peace, wellness, balance, freedom, power, joy, and to live deeply fulfilling lives. 

Racquel can help you to create positive life long changes.  Originally from California, Racquel has lived in the Columbia area for the past 20 years. She has a phenomenal daughter, Rhian, who is also  serving her community as a law enforcement officer on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina.
