ABOUT YVONNE SMITH
Yvonne Smith began researching the UFO phenomenon in the late 1980s. After 2 years of studies and 1000 hours of internship a the California Hypnosis Motivation Institute, the only accredited hypnosis college in the United States, she received her hypnotherapy certification in 1990. Specializing in cases of post traumatic stress disorder, she used her hypnotherapy skills to assist such victims to work through their anxiety. [ Many of her subjects are referred to her by physicians and psychiatrists who believe Smith's expertise can benefit their patients.] . In fact, many such patients are themselves doctors, university professors, engineers, lawyers and other professionals.
Because Smith [who is internationally known in UFO circles as simply "hypnotherapist Yvonne"] observed that many of the PTSD cases being referred to her involved subjects with similar patterns of UFO abduction encounters , Yvonne founded Close Encounters Resource Organization [ CERO] as a support group for such individuals in 1992. She is also on the board of the Organization for Paranormal Understanding and Support (OPUS) to further her support for such subjects.
In addition to being a hypnotherapist "in demand", since 1991 Yvonne has traveled extensively, presenting lectures in the United States at M.I.T. and several other universities, at many American "UFO" conferences ( e.g. frequently acting as moderator and lecturer at the Roswell Annual UFO Celebration) and lecturing and conducting many standing-room-only experiencer sessions at the International UFO Congress in Laughlin, Nevada, U.S.A..
