"Thank you very much for your contribution this spring at the
Morehouse School of Medicine. Your lecture regarding the use of medical
hypnosis as a healing modality was captivating, insightful and inspiring.
The examples and case reports you gave
the students of your work made the application of medical hypnosis more real
and meaningful to the students. The class also appreciated that you brought a
Western trained medical doctor with you to participate in your demonstration of
the power of suggestion. I invite you to participate next year in the ICAM class.

“Ajamu Ayinde is a Medical Hypnotherapist with whom I have had a
long relationship. He connected with the Oncology Support Program (OSP) as a vendor
at our Day of Healing event in 2001. When one of the speakers had to
leave suddenly, Ajamu stepped in and gave a terrific presentation on the role
of guided imagery in cancer support. He participated in our first annual Breast
Cancer Conference held at Kingston HS in 2001. His talkPermission
to Heal,was very
He wrote for theCelebrate
Life! newsletter for several years until he moved from the area.
In 2003 he moved to Atlanta to work with Susan Kolb, MD, a holistic plastic
surgeon at Millennium Healthcare/Avatar Cancer Center as their staff
hypnotherapist. His duties included providing hypnotherapy to patients before
and after surgery, as well as leading weekly guided imagery sessions for
patients in the practice.
Ajamu will be providing group guided imagery for survivors every Friday at the Herbert and Sofia Reuner Cancer
Support House starting in the Fall. We are very glad to have him back
with us as a resource for the patients we serve.”

"Ajamu is a marvelous clinical hypnotherapist addressing
medical issues and sports enhancement. He was a valuable member of the
Millennium Healthcare team for several years. As a holistic plastic surgeon, I
have personally seen the benefits of hypnosis in my own life and within my
practice. Ajamu created beautiful guided imagery sessions for healing and
stress management each week as a free service to our patients and the general
public. He has appeared on my radio show and given numerous talks on exercise
motivation, visualization for cancer support and hypnotic approaches to
childbirth at the clinic.
He received high praise from his
patients and students. I appreciate his expertise, compassion and commitment to
assist with building our practice locally and nationally through his public
speaking enagements. I highly recommend Ajamu to any group practice."

"I have been a pediatrician for 27 years and I embrace
complementary medicine as part of my practice. Hypnotherapy has many uses in
pediatrics including needle phobia, enuresis and allergies. I find that
children are ideal candidates for hypnosis because it utilizes an active
imagination. Ajamu Ayinde has been associated with New Windsor Pediatrics for
almost two years. In that time I have known him to demonstrate compassion,
cultural sensitivity, patience, creativity and discretion in dealing with patients.
He has extensive training in various methods of hypnotherapy, as well as
applied sports psychology. A former high school teacher, Ajamu has helped young
people with a variety of issues but his current practice has him using hypnosis
to support diet adherence, exercise motivation and exam anxiety. I
wholeheartedly recommend Ajamu's services to my patients, other parents and

"I have taken many hypnosis courses given by very good
teachers. A few fall in the category of excellent teachers. Ajamu Ayinde falls
in this category. His knowledge of hypnosis practice and theory is excellent.
His ability to teach is outstanding. The knowledge and skills I have learned
from him I use in my self-hypnosis and incorporate into my own teaching to the
staff and patients at my health care facility. A hypnotherapy course given by
Ajamu would be valuable to all backgrounds and would be very beneficial to MD's
and other healthcare professionals."

"As a family physician who is also board certified in
Holistic and Integrative medicine, and specialized in energy healing, I have
explored many diverse health practices for myself and for my patients. While
working in a multispecialty holistic clinic, I had the opportunity to work with
Ajamu for several years and experience firsthand his skill as a hypnotherapist.
Ajamu has pursued extensive training in various aspects of hypnotherapy,
including pain management, surgical preparation and stress-related illnesses.
He is also a skilled presenter and has given a lecture on Medical Hypnosis at Morehouse
School of Medicine. Additionally, I have experienced guided imagery sessions
led by Ajamu. I highly recommend him as a practitioner and presenter."

“Ajamu has played an
important role in keeping me on target and teaching me the proper techniques in
order to keep the negative out of my weight-loss experience. I went into this
experience with the mantra that I “would not fail this time.” Ajamu helped me
get past the negative and create a positive mantra and outlook. I needed to
stop looking at the negative and embrace the positives of my experience. Ajamu
has helped me do that. He has taught me different techniques to handle my
stress and continuously encourages me throughout my whole weight loss experience.
His positive outlook and coaching techniques have helped me eliminate the
negative and find new ways of dealing with the stresses of my hectic life. I
could not have asked for a better counselor to help me lose weight. Today I am
52 pounds lighter and still losing. I can honestly say that Ajamu’s coaching
has helped get me on the road to a better me.”

“I have known Ajamu for
almost two years now. He has helped me in so many ways. He is always kind,
courteous and sweet. From the moment I met him he put me at ease and we bonded
immediately. I was a little shy at first and worried about how he was going to
accept my uniqueness. But I need not have worried. He helped me realize that
what I thought were shortcomings were actually normal feelings and I need not
feel alone. I have seen him treat others the same way. He is such a great
motivational speaker and I feel so much better after I have met with him. He
does not push me or make me feel uncomfortable like other counselors do, but he
works with me, side by side and helps me know that I can be a better person.”
