Rebekka Putnam, CHT

Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist & EFT Tapping Specialist

Hello and welcome to Real Change!

I’m Rebekka Putnam, a Santa Barbara-based clinical hypnotherapist. At Real Change with Rebekka Putnam®, I am committed to helping people release limiting beliefs, unleash their power, and actualize the life they desire through private hypnotherapy sessions, EFT tapping, audio downloads, and online programs that include hypnotherapy sessions and personal coaching.

Private Practice

I’ve been in private hypnotherapy practice for almost twenty years seeing clients virtually and in-person at my downtown Santa Barbara office. I am also an EFT tapping practitioner, teacher, and speaker.

I began my own therapeutic healing journey 25 years ago and with hypnosis I was able to uncover belief systems and personal scripts that stood in the way of my ability to actualize my full potential, and you can too!  Read more about my transformational experiences in my Notebook.

Hypnosis Audio Download

Since hypnosis is cumulative, I began offering my clients recorded sessions so they could continue to receive the benefits between appointments. I eventually created a library of professionally recorded hypnosis audio tracks that are available for download at my online store. If you’re new to hypnosis, head over to the store and download your free copy of Inner Bliss, a gentle guided meditation to help you relax.

Online Programs

Smoke Free Success®

According to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit, Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking.  Hypnosis was over three times as effective as nicotine replacement methods and 15 times as effective as trying to quit alone. As a former smoker myself, I knew I could help countless others quit for good, and do it easily and affordably from anywhere in the world. For smokers who want to quit with the help of hypnosis on a convenient schedule that works for them, Smoke Free Success® is a great way to do it!

Hypnotherapy is a self-regulated profession and does not qualify for State licensing. The American Council of Hypnotist Examiners is a professional organization, chartered by the State of California, to establish training standards, standards of professional practice, and a code of ethics. The ACHE’s Ethics Committee can suspend or revoke certification. Certification is awarded to those who attend state licensed schools, with state approved hypnotherapy instructors. Although the state does not regulate curriculum or a required number of hours of training, ACHE has the highest requirements for certification of any major Hypnotherapy organization in the USA. The ACHE logo is the Hallmark of Quality for the Hypnotherapy profession. Be sure to look for it.
