empowering hypnotherapy

See my new website to schedule your free phone consultation and session series: www.alchemizechange.com.

Local and live video sessions continue for all my clients
globally for 40+ years.

Greetings.  I am Alaya Ketani CHT CFT CPC.  When clients work with me, their lives change.  Lives are more fulfilling, goals are attained, skills are gained that are valuable for their entire life time, and their brilliance reflects in every aspect of their life.  It's called Alchemy - from dissatisfaction to wonder, beauty, success, fulfillment.  I interweave a vast expertise of approaches to help clients create what they need and desire.  I am a Life Coach, Counselor, and a Nationally Board Certified Clinical, Medical, Alchemical, and Transpersonal Hypnotherapist with multiple advanced specializations and certifications over 40+ years expertise.  The foundation of all my work is based on Neuroscience and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP,) Quantum Physics, and Somatic Practices, utilizing creative visualization and conscious, intentional dreaming as well as teaching mind mastery skills that are valuable for a lifetime.  As a Peak Performance Specialist, I am endorsed by teaching professionals with the PGA for golfers and I work with all sports enthusiasts.

**I am presently accepting new clients in-office, and globally via private live video. 

In-person sessions are held presently in my North Idaho office.  Please be assured that I continue to see my clients in Southern Oregon and the extended area as I have for many years, very successfully via live video. The work is as potent and effective whether in-person or zoom, as therapists work increasingly from a distance.  As well, I expect to be returning to Southern Oregon in 2022, date to be determined.**

In my Trauma Specialization, I have trained with the most thorough, ground-breaking, safe, and effective trauma therapies as taught by the most respected training organizations and educators worldwide: Sensorimotor Psychology Institute, The National Institute for The Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine: NICABM, and Gabor Mate' with "The Wisdom of  Trauma." 


The American Medical Association (AMA) approved the use of hypnotherapy as an appropriate therapeutic modality in 1958.  The American Psychiatric Association (APA) endorsed hypnotherapy in 1961.  The over twenty modalities that I use in my work is evidence-based, meaning there is extensive research and science over many years to back these safe, non-invasive modalities with outstanding results.  I also work in a deeply intuitive way.  Our time together is potent with practices that draw from cutting edge neuroscience, ancient sacred wisdom, extensive research and training.


It's important to know that I do nothing "to" my clients.  Each client finds the well of clarity, wisdom, and guidance within their own self.  This is possible because I offer the opportunity to go beyond struggle and mental chaos into the Source, the centered presence and peace that is always within, within the same brain wave as in meditation and prayer.  Clients find that transformation so that they may live less in limitation and more within the field of all possibility and full potential. 

The therapeutic approaches that I utilize are in harmony with all faiths, religions, and spiritual paths. 
I do this work because I care, and because it very successfully and safely creates the lasting change that my clients request.  


The very special added element that makes my work with clients so successful is the insight that I have gained from a very concentrated life journey that many find inspirational.  It is through the depth of challenges that I have experienced and come to thrive through, that I am able to teach and help my clients experience the skills and mindset needed to attain their success.  Clients gain a life of wellbeing and success.    

Session work held over live video Zoom is especially sensitive to clients' need for complete privacy, and confidentiality.  No one sees you walking into an office, or coming out of one.  It is just the client and myself in a personalized, focused manner.  Zoom is especially successful for accelerated change that may be desired in the full day option.  I see clients all over the globe via Zoom.

I have worked integratively with all health and wellness practitioners for many years, among them: Doctors, Midwives, Physical Therapists, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Massage Therapists, Sports Trainers and Coaches, Mental Health Therapists, Nutritionists, and all Business Owners and Staff.  I also work very successfully with PGA golf teaching professionals, and all athletic trainers and coaches.

This website will soon include up-to-date information including scheduling, membership, and payment option.  

Please feel free to contact me through this website from anywhere in the world.  The first step will be to set your no cost consultation call, and to schedule your sessions from there.  For clients in Europe, communicating through the WhatsApp application for scheduling is efficient.


How do we cope during these challenging times?   We reach out to those who can teach new skills, help us to recenter, and create our lives in a new way.   This is why I am here.   Using Wisdom and Insight combined with Modern Expertise I help you to restore calm, gain clarity, and to begin the path to new ways of living and experiencing,new chapters, and new loves. It's time to take control of your mind rather than be the victim of it.  We are living in very challenging times.  With one global and regional shock after another, many people are reeling from the experiences.  All over this Earth we see and hear of crisis. It's time to learn new ways to return to your center, and find peace amidst the circumstances.

With over forty years of experience changing lives enlisting modalities including Neuroscience, Advanced Specialized Hypnotherapy, Life Coaching, Trauma-specific approaches of EMDR,
Brain-Spotting, and Somatic Release, HeartMath Biofeedback, Inner Mediation, Parts and Inner Family Systems. 
 I am here to help, and clients experience lasting change and life enhancement.

"Stories of Strength" 
Interview with Alaya

Alaya in Yachats  OVAL.jpg

Listen to this February 2021 interview with Alaya. 



“I feel really lucky that I’ve found Alaya. She is an amazing person and gifted therapist. She listens and gives me mindful advice and her soothing voice always takes me to a peaceful place. She gave me courage and strength to challenge my fertility issue. After a series of sessions, I was pregnant and gave birth to my precious son. I am not good at writing and I wish I could express my feelings better, because I want everybody to know how special you are to me, Alaya. I can’t give enough thanks to Alaya. She helped my dream come true, and I will continue seeing her.”
