Sherris Cottier Shank C.Ht. Works With Clients Online and In-Person

Sherris Cottier Shank C.Ht. of Birmingham Clinical Hypnotherapy is a sought after certified clinical hypnotherapist. She combines mindful coaching with hypnosis and serves clients both online and in person. Her hypnotherapy helps clients tap into the power of their subconscious mind so they can overcome stubborn obstacles, realize their true worth, and reach their goals. She specializes in Emotional Healing and Performance Breakthrough, and is available throughout the “shelter in place” restrictions, and afterward as well.


In the therapeutic setting, hypnosis allows us to:

Access information unavailable to the conscious mind

Uncover the root cause of specific problems

Create new behavior patterns

Dispel phobias

Increase confidence

Develop new capacities such as managing pain, and lowering anxiety

The conscious mind is still awake and aware during hypnotherapy, but it is not dominant as it is in our everyday life. After hypnosis, you can integrate all that you have learned into your conscious awareness.

Clinical Hypnotherapy, like any other kind of therapy, is aimed at solving problems so that you can thrive as a whole, authentic human being. Every person’s issues are unique, as is the length of time needed to reach their desired goal.

Please see Available Services for how Clinical Hypnotherapy can benefit you.

The Hypnotherapy Process


You and I discuss what brought you to hypnotherapy, what your goals are, what you are feeling, and how your issue is affecting your life.


Together we identify the core issue that you want to work on today.

Dive Deep

Using hypnosis, we dialogue with your subconscious mind to uncover the origin of your issue and suggest ways to change your underlying beliefs.


We review what you have learned and how it will impact your life. You begin to integrate your insights and experience into your day-to-day life.

Hi, my name is Sherris

What is the ray of sunshine that you need in your life  right now? How many places have you searched for it?

If you are like many of my clients, you’re trying to resolve a personal problem, release a harmful feeling, or reach an important goal, and your efforts have been unsuccessful. You’ve tried everything you can think of, and you’re frustrated because nothing you do quite seems to work.

The alternative to your exhausting struggle is Clinical Hypnotherapy, a gentle, safe and effective process of deep inner transformation. The great gift that hypnotherapy gives all of us is the ability to collaborate directly with your subconscious mind.

It's been 3 weeks since our session and I feel so fantastic! I love my life again. Prior to our session, my hope had faded so greatly that I felt I had really lost my spark. Well, all that has changed! I'm no longer working against myself. I'm boldly moving in the direction of impact and money has again begun to flow. Thank you beyond words! Profoundly grateful, with so much love,

Madeleine M., Scottsdale AZ

Your intuitive insight led me down exactly the path I needed to follow in order to validate my own intuitions. Although I was initially a bit apprehensive, within minutes I felt myself to be in kind and loving hands and was able to relax and enjoy the experience! Thanks so much, Sherris!

I had an extremely powerful and moving session with Ms. Shank. With her guidance I was able to connect deeply with important feelings that I was not aware of. Her intuitive understanding of my situation made the experience safe and very meaningful. I have recommended her to several of my close friends.
