About Beck

Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.
— Carl Jung

Hello! My name is Becky Shanks and I am grateful for the opportunity to connect. I am a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Reiki Master and Intuitive Sound Healing Practitioner. I identify as an Alchemical Hypnotherapist and Theta Healer, and incorporate Delores Cannon’s Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique (QHHT), as well as sound healing technology -- crystal singing bowls -- into my hypnotic healing practice, Presents of Mind.

Over six years ago, I used hypnosis to quit smoking cigarettes. When I came to full, waking consciousness, I thought to myself, “Huh… I could do that,” and I never smoked again. Six months later, I let go of binge drinking, recognized I wanted to help people and decided to go to hypnotherapy training… Six months after that in January 2014, I began studying hypnosis and regression therapy. I opened my practice a month later, as soon as I received certification stating I was qualified. I received my Reiki I attunement in September, 2014, and quickly realized the practice is deeply relaxing — hypnotic.

I am trained in medical hypnosis, but am by no means a doctor. I don't "treat" or 'heal;” I facilitate a process whereby, in applying the inherent, creative potential of mind, you may empower yourself to heal. I'm like a mind renovator... a brain trainer, and pleased to serve Metro Atlanta in-person, as well as the Global Community via the www. With over 450-hours of clinical study and five years of professional hypnosis and energy healing practice, I am here to encourage and empower; to lead you deep into the core of your Being where possibilities are limitless. 

I am excited to share the tools that have enhanced my life and I am honored to walk beside; to gently guide you along at this most pivotal point in your journey. If you have questions about my practice, services, hypnosis, energy work, the power of sound, alchemy; if you are curious if or how hypnotherapy can help; if you are interested in holding sacred space for small groups, classes or ceremonies, please call (404) 599-2843 or email Becky at PresentsOfMindHypnosis@gmail.com

Praise and Testimonial

I have LOTS of reviews on Google and Thumbtack; won Best Hypnotherapist Atlanta two years in a row, and was recently acknowledged as one of three top hypnotherapists in Atlanta. Here’s an article featuring my practice, Presents of Mind, and below are tidbits shared by clients.

“Okay, Becky, I REALLY need a session with you because you are my Yoda.”  
— Bekah
“Becky’s service was the catalyst in this life-changing decision. She was so kind, skilled and willing to help that the interview seemed more like a comfortable conversation. After only 20 mins of her powerful, personalized hypnosis, and now months later without one craving or horrible attitude; it’s true! I am a NONSMOKER! I recommend Becky and Presents of Mind to anyone who wants to make a life change and needs that extra push. This has been an exceptional experience.”  
— Desiree

"I had lingering fears and mental "junk" leftover from my first birth experience and was aspiring for a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean). Becky was very easy to talk to; it felt natural to share intimate details with her. She carefully tailored suggestions for my personalized hypnotherapy session during which I felt at ease, safe, and deeply relaxed. When we finished, I felt alert, happy, and confident.

"I noticed a difference in my self-talk right away! I felt more confident, positive, and ready to take on my next labor and delivery experience. The hypnosis recording helped me remain calm and focused during my labor, which lasted a full 24-hours, and my son was born drug and IV-free  via VBAC.

"With Becky's help, I achieved a total transformation in just a few weeks! She helped bring my birth dreams to fruition, and I truly became my own birth role model. For that, and for her, I will be forever grateful! Becky is a true treasure.  **Erin

“I told my psychiatrist that I saw a hypnotherapist. He was really excited, and congratulated me on doing something so important for myself. He knows self-care is very hard for me and he is beyond supportive; he wanted to hear all about it!”  
— Anonymous
“I went to see Becky because I had a strong dislike of water. Becky has a soothing and relaxing voice and I felt completely refreshed after our session. Becky’s hypnosis took effect immediately! I feel healthier since, and have been drinking twice as much water as I ever did before! I can’t wait to continue my work with Becky; I highly recommend her to help make a better you.”
