Mary Lee LaBay, PhD, is an acclaimed Clinical Hypnotherapist, Instructor of Hypnotherapy, and author of 5 books, who makes it effortless and fascinating for her clients to manifest the lifestyle and wellbeing they seek, holistically and effectively. Leveraging the wisdom of the subconscious mind, along with principles of new physics, revolutionary mind-set strategies, astrology, and over 30 years of experience, she has helped thousands of clients and students achieve self-awareness, improved health, spiritual connection, and  purposeful life directions.


I agree with Mahatma Gandhi that it is important to be the change we wish to see in the world.

In providing solid and sustainable healing modalities for both clients and students of my trainings, I fulfill my dreams and purpose of supporting others in elevating their lives from “getting by” to “WOW!” When people are healthy and living from a place of purpose, they are contributing to the betterment of their lives and the lives of those they influence.

By developing this work as a soul-centered holistic practice, the deepest, most sustainable, results  are produced. This has been the driving force in my life since childhood, and more visibly in my professional life since the 1980s. With a successful private hypnotherapy practice of over 20 years, I have developed an acclaimed training program, bringing my skills and wisdom to a greater circle of influence through the good work of my graduates.

As the author of 5 books, including Hypnotherapy: A Client-Centered Approach and Exploring Past Lives: Your Soul’s Quest for Consciousness, I have created and taught the professional hypnotherapy programs at Bastyr University and Bellevue College. Now these professional trainings in hypnotherapy, past life regression, and techniques of spiritual exploration are offered independently in various locations, as well as through my online home study course.

Beginning in the late 1960’s with studies in Tarot and Astrology, I continued in pursuit of raising conciousness with intense training from the Celtic/Druidic perspective, moving into hypnotherapy as a means of taking this work even deeper.

I followed up with a doctorate in behavioral psychology, and certifications in NLP, Reiki, Gestalt, EFT, Remote Viewing, and Applied Kinesiology; was named among the Top 100 Thought Leaders of 2007 by Personal Excellence magazine; and maintain a private practice in Bellevue, WA.
