Located in Los Angeles, California, Three Circle Flow is a private practice run by John Sahakian, a psychotherapist and hypnotist providing treatment for a range of mental health issues. The organization does not offer traditional psychiatric or medical care. Instead, Sahakian takes a holistic approach to mental and behavioral health, which emphasizes relaxation and stress reduction, all with individualized treatment plans.
Treatment and Staff
Before beginning a program, clients go through an initial assessment to help Sahakian develop the client’s care plan. While on-site detox and stabilization services are not available, referrals can be offered upon request.
Though each plan is likely to differ, participants can mostly expect to attend flexible individual sessions, which include lessons from positive psychology, breath work, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques, yoga, mindfulness training, meditation and hypnosis. While the services offered are not equivalent to those offered at a dual diagnosis program, Sahakian’s techniques can be used to help with basic mental illnesses like anxiety and depression. Because the organization is a private practice, Sahakian is the only counselor and is a Certified Hypnotherapist (C. Ht).
In addition to the individual approaches described above, Three Circle Flow’s teachings are also available on a set of educational CDs which clients can buy to learn from remotely. Other offerings include standalone meditation and yoga classes as well as relationship counseling. Sahakian is also available for corporate events. Finally, Sahakian also offers more intensive retreats in Santa Monica where clients can sit in meditation in breathing sessions which are longer than usual—these are offered in two, three and six-hour sessions spread over two days. Finally, Sahakian also runs his own YouTube channel with educational lectures for clients to browse at their leisure.
Overall, Three Circle Flow is an intimate and niche program which focuses on helping clients reduce their stress and focus on healthier breathing. Treatment is not strictly evidence-based, relying instead on a host of holistic care methods including yoga, meditation, hypnotherapy and breath work. While those with severe addiction or mental illness may need to seek additional help outside the program, Three Circle Flow remains a flexible and relatively affordable option for a certain set.
