Denise Billen-Mejia

Business Owner at Akeso & Aglaia
On the record

Almost 40 years after graduating from medical school and now retired from pediatrics and emergency medicine, Denise have a burgeoning hypnotherapy practice. Throughout her career, she was fascinated by complementary medicine but did not have time to seriously study it. When Denise retired, she expected to have a little side gig, advising people on healthy lifestyle, diet, exercise, stress reduction, etc., but when I was offered a short introductory course on hypnosis it completely changed my direction. She now works with self-referred clients on issues of confidence, performance —artistic and athletic — fear of dentists, work-related stress and with those referred by physicians for medical issues such as asthma, hypertension, chronic pain, IBS and nausea from chemotherapy.
