When our athletes are better prepared, more relaxed, more confident and able to stay in the zone without breaking concentration, that’s when we win medals and that’s what we expect. That’s what the 33 Method is all about.

Mental Training and Performance Coach and founder of PA Hypnosis Center, in Pittsburgh, PA Dan Vitchoff has quickly become one of the world’s most sought after mental coaches. His athletes’ success at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China and the 2012 Olympics in London, England have propelled him to the short list of who’s who in Mental Training for elite athletes. Vitchoff’s unique approach to mental training, trademarked as the “33 MethodTM” incorporates hypnosis, NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) and Innovations in Sports Psychology. Two of his athletes in particular, Walton Glenn Eller and Vincent Hancock took center stage at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China when they won Gold Medals and broke four Olympic Records. Vincent Hancock became the first person ever to repeat a Gold Medal in Men’s Skeet at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, England.

Vitchoff’s athletes recently returned from the World Championship in Lima Peru where they celebrated their very own Gold Rush! Not only did Glenn Eller win Gold in Men’s Double Trap but the US Team consisting of Glenn Eller, Jeff Holguin and Derek Haldeman dominated the Team Event and won Gold as well. Vitchoff is very proud of his athletes but not surprised; Vitchoff explains, “The reason why we do mental training is to help set our athletes apart from the competition. When our athletes are better prepared, more relaxed, more confident and able to stay in the zone without breaking concentration, that’s when we win medals and that’s what we expect. That’s what the 33 Method is all about.” Vitchoff has also successfully used the “33 Method” to address PTSD with veterans and soldiers returning from combat. He recently pledged to donate $50 for every new client in the month of September to the Wounded Warriors Project in honor of the victims and their families of September 11th.

Through his work with Olympic athletes, Vitchoff really had the opportunity to develop and fine tune some specific mental training methods and techniques that go way beyond traditional hypnosis. Vitchoff’s “33 MethodTM” has been proven to be so powerful and so effective that he was granted a patent and trademark from the United States Government. The “33 MethodTM” incorporates hypnosis with nlp (neuro linguistic programming), sports psychology, visualization, imagery, brain wave technology and both direct and indirect suggestions.    

Even though the “33 MethodTM” was born out of Vitchoff’s work in sports performance, he has adapted the “33 MethodTM” to help his clients in a variety of different areas including weight loss, stop smoking, stress & anxiety, fears, phobias, public speaking, corporate success, nail biting and other forms of personal and professional development.

Vitchoff takes a unique and comprehensive approach compared to what you may find at another hypnosis center or hypnotherapy clinic. He believes that the most powerful, effective way to utilize hypnosis is one on one on an individualized basis. Vitchoff recognizes that no two people are the same. He offers a free consultation and evaluation where he will sit down with each prospective client about the habits and behaviors they would like to address. He will explain the “33 MethodTM”, how it works, why it works and most importantly how it can be adapted to address specific needs such as weight loss, smoking cessation, anxiety, sports performance, insomnia, overcoming fears / phobias, pubic speaking, alcohol consumption and personal and professional success. The free consultation helps Vitchoff ensure a high success rate with his clients because he gets to know each and every one of his clients before he puts together a program for them. Vitchoff is so confident in the success of his programs that he offers a Success Guarantee in writing with his hypnosis weight loss and stop smoking programs. Even though Vitchoff cannot offer the same guarantee with his other programs because the measure of success is more of a variable, he is committed to the long term success of each of his clients and will do as he says, “whatever it takes,” to make sure each client is making progress towards their goals.

Vitchoff explains, "What we do at PA Hypnosis Center is professional, therapeutic hypnosis. It has been life changing for many people, but there are no smoke and mirrors to it. Our “33 MethodTM” hypnosis programs have been proven to be powerful and effective for reducing stress and tension; increased memory and concentration; overcoming fears, phobias, and insomnia; public speaking; sports improvement; and weight loss and smoking cessation."

Vitchoff’s competitive shooters agree that the successful application of the “33 Method” strategies is life changing. Two time Olympic Gold Medalist Vincent Hancock refers to Vitchoff’s 33 Method as, “Hypnosis on steroids.”
