Santa Monica Hospital (part of U.C.L.A.) Birth Place (Lynn H. Sullivan)

Edward Sheldon, Ph.D. (Simcha Sheldon) worked at Santa Monica Hospital …as a medical psychologist working in the Department of Labor and Delivery. Dr. Sheldon provided treatment for our patients including dealing with labor and delivery complications such as premature and delayed labor, severe experience of pain, loss of control, surgical preparation, anxiety, and depression. 

Dr. Sheldon’s work was excellent, effective, caring and appreciated by both patients and staff. He demonstrated true expertise in the use of hypnosis.

He also worked with our physician and nursing staff in integrating his treatment with our medical treatment.

Amy E. Rosenman, M.D., Fellow American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists, Assistant Clinical Professor, David Geffen, UCLA School of Medicine

I have referred patients to Dr. Sheldon… management of labor pain and anxiety, premature labor, delayed labor, hyperemesis and sexual dysfunction…(he) employed a mixture of hypnosis, self-hypnosis and guided imagery with excellent results…I highly recommend Dr. Sheldon as an excellent addition to any medical staff.

Charles E. Hamrell, M.D. F.A.C.O.G., Assistant Professor, UCLA School of Medicine (former head of Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Santa Monica Hospital)

It is my pleasure to recommend him highly as both a specialist in behavioral medicine and medical psychology.

Dr. Sheldon was often asked to treat women who were having unusual difficulties…helping women in premature labor stop having contractions without medication, and stopping pain when medication did not work…helped in circumstances of prolonged labor, post-partum depression, anxiety and fear…provided psychotherapy to fathers and couples.

He was of help to my patients as well as to several of my colleague’s’ patients.

Richard Frieder, M.D., Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. U.C.L.A. School of Medicine

I highly recommend my colleague Edward Sheldon, Ph.D. I have referred a number of my patients to him during the years 1984 – 1990 when he practiced in Santa Monica and Los Angeles, California.

Dr. Sheldon helped my patients with hypnotherapy and psychotherapy for hyperemesis, premature labor, smoking, obesity, and family therapy.

My patients were happy with his work. Many of my OB/GYN colleagues also referred patients to Dr. Sheldon, and were pleased with his work.

He also taught helpful courses for medical practitioners in hypnosis, holistic medicine, stress management, and other topics, and did fine work at Santa Monica and St. John’ s Hospitals.

I hope that you will give credit to Dr. Sheldon’s good reputation, many years of excellent work, and the good person that he is,

Feel welcome to discuss with me any questions that you may have regarding
how I can help you

Of course specific results cannot be guaranteed, and vary from client/patient to client/patient. Motivation and positive participation, as well as suggested homework are required of the patient. The work is a partnership between therapist and client/patient.

I want to give my patients the best treatment I can, and create the best treatment strategy for each patient. To do this, it is important for me to have the necessary information regarding their condition, medical history, and past and concurrent treatment, with other health professionals. I, therefore, request consultation with my patients’ medical doctors, when I treat them for medical or psychiatric diagnoses, or at least a copy of their medical report, so that I can offer the best services possible.              

At times hypnosis or another modality of therapy is not recommended or appropriate for a particular client/patient. Whether hypnosis or another modality is utilized in the treatment of my client/patient is determined after consultation and evaluation of the client/patient, the specific issues presented the preference of the client/patient, and the client/patient’s medical history.

Regarding hypnotherapy: Hypnotherapy and hypnosis are usually very good treatment interventions. However, hypnosis is contraindicated under certain circumstances. For example, hypnosis is usually contraindicated for individuals who suffer from severe psychiatric disorders, such as psychoses and schizophrenia.

A proper diagnosis and evaluation of each client/patient must be made before hypnosis is utilized. It is only at the request of the client/patient and at the evaluation and discretion of Dr. Sheldon that hypnosis will be utilized.

Often Dr. Sheldon consults with other physicians treating his client/patient as part of the evaluation and the creation of the proper treatment strategies, as well as to ensure that there is safety, harmony, coordination and consistency among the health professionals treating the client/patient and the treatment modalities utilized. Dr. Sheldon will also ask the client/patient to provide information regarding any medications or other drugs taken.

Regarding Testimonials and Endorsements: Of course
what is written in testimonials and endorsements and professional
recommendations represents the author’s experiences and opinions.

All of the above is for the well-being of the client/patient,
and to make sure that all work is done with high ethical and
professional standards, legally, effectively. I want to give excellent
service and wants each of his clients/patients to be as successful as
