“One aspect of the seminar that stood out most to me is the stance of positivity and confidence that Gambardella took and used with the participants. Gambardella used each stage of hypnosis to make participants feel positive and confident, often prompting them to respond in a way that makes them feel their best. I thought hypnosis was only used for show performances before this event but I learned that hypnosis can be used for working through traumatic experiences or to help build self-confidence, among other things. Any attendee could see that Gambardella is very passionate about what he does and that he wants those who participate to improve following the show.”Chloe, Ohio Northern University

why book train your brain?

In the Age of Anxiety, mental health programming is crucial to combat negative self-talk. While traveling the country performing comedy hypnosis shows, students constantly tell me how anxious they are; they rarely understand why their anxiety is so overwhelming & lack the tools to cope with it.

I myself lacked the tools to treat my anxiety and trauma until becoming certified as a consulting hypnotist. But I believe no one should have to train as a hypnotist just to understand their subconscious and undo habits of unhappiness.

I created TRAIN YOUR BRAIN as an answer to this problem—bringing mental health fitness programming to students suffering with anxiety (especially around exam time), chronic stress, depression, loss, and general PTSD. It’s fun, fascinating, interactive, and an incredibly healing experience for all. By design, attendees will leave feeling very relaxed and inspired by the untapped powers of their subconscious.

With my unconventional dual certification in both Stage and Consulting Hypnosis, I approach this workshop from a uniquely hypno-therapeutic perspective; I merge my experience as an international entertainer with my private clinical sessions in hypnotherapy.

I’m incredibly passionate about this work. I have experienced the power of hypnosis firsthand, which got me through seemingly insurmountable moments of distress in my own life. It’s my privilege to pass forward the tools which helped me build a helpful and healing mental fitness practice.

from evan:

“I never planned on being a hypnotist.

I was going through a tough time mentally and felt imprisoned by the traumatic experiences of my past. I heard hypnosis could help, so I became an apprentice to learn how to apply hypnotic tools on my own life. I didn’t realize how quickly I’d see results and how dramatically my life, and the lives of those around me, would change for the better.

Funnily enough I always thought hypnosis was fake, kitschy, and inappropriately used to make people feel embarrassed for an audience’s pleasure. While there are many
hypnotists out there who abuse this incredible tool, I wanted to design shows and programs that guaranteed my attendees would feel amazing about themselves afterwards; whether or not they were hypnotized.

With the recent rise in anxiety, depression, and PTSD over the last decade, hypnosis is needed now more than ever before. I created TRAIN YOUR BRAIN as an answer to this problem—bringing mental health fitness programming to students looking to enhance
their mindfulness practice. It’s fun, fascinating, interactive, and an incredibly healing experience for all. By design, attendees will leave feeling very relaxed and inspired by
the untapped powers of their subconscious.

I’m incredibly passionate about this work. I believe in it, and I know it helps. It’s my privilege to pass forward the tools which helped me build a helpful and healing mental fitness practice. While the powers of hypnosis seem wizard-like, I assure you there’s no special abilities or magic involved whatsoever. Everyone can access the powers of hypnosis within themselves, and you can be your own hypno-hero anytime you choose.

Whenever you’re ready I’m here to help! And I fully intend to bring you some joyful relief along the way.”
