My Approach to Helping

Dr. Sorokin treats anxiety, depression, bipolar and substance abuse by successfully combining hypnosis and psychotherapy. Similarly, he specializes in family and couple relationship problems, anger management, domestic abuse, teenage problems and sleep issues. If you are depressed, if you feel guilty about your past and dwell on your past mistakes - it's time to start changing your life. If you constantly worry about your present and future, if you feel fatigue and unable to move forward in your life - it is time for a change. You don't have to be in distress or live in a quiet misery. You can find enough power and inspiration within yourself to start moving forward in your life towards emotional health, success, peace and happiness. Helping people awaken this power from within is Dr. Sorokin's calling in life. He will help you to change yourself and you will see that the world around you will miraculously change. Dr. Sorokin will help you to re-program your mind and create a long-lasting improvement in your emotional and physical condition. He utilizes holistic approach recognizing an important unity of human body, mind and spirit.

More Info About My Practice

Studies indicate that combination of psychotherapy and hypnosis is an incredibly effective approach in treatment of wide range of anxieties, depression, substance abuse and relational issues. Psychotherapy takes effect through "left brain" and works through reflection, persuasion and inspiration. On the contrary, hypnotherapy (hypnosis) works through the "unconscious mind" located in the "right brain". The combination of Psychotherapy and Hypnosis allows involvement of both, right and left hemispheres, in the process of physical and emotional healing. Thus, the combination of Psychotherapy and hypnosis is a "whole brain" device which makes treatment most effective.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

The ultimate goal of Dr. Sorokin's therapy is to inspire you and enable you to thrive. He recognizes the importance of exploring your previous, often negative and drastic experiences. Your history made you who you are now. It is to be explored and processed in the course of therapy. In the same time, Dr. Sorokin believes that you have the potential to live a meaningful, successful and fulfilling life despite all the adverse circumstances of the past.
Right at the beginning of the therapy you will start the awakening of your inner power to change your life. At the end of our work you will not need any help any more. You will be able to be productive and have peace and balance in your life. You will be able to navigate your life in whatever direction you want.
