Society of NLP – Your Guarantee of Quality

Hi, Hypnosis & NLP Friends!

Sharing our latest press release.  We are pleased to announce another offering from the career school side of our work.  All the Best, Connie

Licensed private career school, Mindworks NLP, is pleased to announce an upcoming live training event in the Greater Seattle area: “Licensed Practitioner of NLP ®” certification program.  It is slated for 8 days, four weekends, October 6, 7, 13, 14, 27, 28, and November 3, 4, 2018.

NLP, Neuro Linguistic Programming, is a powerful methodology of personal change and influence involving understanding the mind, how it works, and how to create effective communications and connections.  With NLP training, we learn to read others (calibration), develop connections with others (rapport), wield influence through artful language (Ericksonian language), choose our own state of mind (anchoring) and so much more.  NLP can transform thinking, feelings, and behaviors in desired ways.  With these tools, it becomes very easy to create personal change and success of all varieties in ourselves and others.

This is a live, experiential program, not just learning “about NLP,” but rather, learning to “do NLP.”  Licensed Trainers of NLP®, Connie and Michael Brannan’s course is designed for anyone, business people, young people, parents, therapists, those interested in self-development, those curious about the power of mind, or those looking for a new career as an NLP Practitioner.  The uses of NLP are unlimited, for business success, improving relationships, effective parenting, enhanced learning, personal development, and more.  This certification comes through the Society of NLP®, the organization of the co-originator of NLP, Dr. Richard Bandler.

Students will learn not only techniques of change, but the underlying principles of empowerment and structure of change.  Students will learn how the mind creates our world, beliefs, and actions, and how we can alter those things.  Included:

–Well-formed goals

–Representational systems

–Eye accessing

–Calibration

–Rapport

–Meta model

–Milton model

–Anchoring

–Reframing

–Several powerful change processes

–And more.

–Bonus presentation on NLP for Personal Development.

It’s Not a Warning — It’s a Hypnotic Suggestion for Addiction

Smokeless Tobacco is addictive.Hi, Hypno-Friends!

I’m helping a client to quit chewing tobacco.  It’s a habit he’s been doing for 25+ years!  He informed me as we started:  “I’m addicted to tobacco.”  He took that idea on board and created a belief out of it.  He believed he could never quit against the power of ADDICTION, therefore he delayed seeking help to do so.

The good news:  skilled NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming makes short work of removing “addictions.”  The mind controls the body, and that includes chemical responses.  The antidote to addiction is choice.  We can find and install new and different unconscious choices, and voila, there is no addiction.  I know this is true because I remove “addictions” daily, and did so for myself as well:  no more sugar addiction for me.

So, this client had his first session to quit chewing tobacco, and it went amazingly well.  At the end of the session, he was so convinced of his power of choice and control over tobacco, that he tossed his tobacco can into my garbage can.  Yay!  The work we did together looks great and we’ll see how he does in the world.

Later, I fished the tobacco out of the garbage (I use it for testing future clients).  And I was struck by this “warning label.”  “Smokeless tobacco is addictive.”  Wow!  This is not a warning to create non-use of tobacco.  It’s the opposite!   It’s a suggestion.  A suggestion which, if accepted, creates addiction.

Conscious mind will look at the words and say:  “Oh, I shouldn’t be doing this, should I?”  And reach in for more tobacco.  Conscious mind does not control the habit.  UNconscious mind will look at the words and, as the obedient servant it is, create what is suggested.  UNconscious mind says:  “Ok, we can do that!” and creates addiction.  If this is meant to be a “warning label,” it is a miserable failure.  I suspect that tobacco manufacturers hope this idea will go into the mind, be accepted, and create an addiction.

Every time my client reached into that can to use chewing tobacco, a suggestion was being made to the UN-conscious mind:  Addiction!  Addiction!  So, the unconscious mind agreed.  And created addiction.

Words have power.Ideas are power.  Words are power.  What I do at my office is help work new ideas into the mind so that we get to choose what we create in our world.  I’m very, very attuned to words and how they impact the mind, both consciously and UNconsciously.  This so-called warning label is not helpful to quit tobacco, quite the opposite instruction is being given to the mind.  And that’s not good.

If you need help to stop tobacco, or other “addictions,” there really is help.  Addictions can be anything, sugar, alcohol, gambling, spending, even negative thinking.  I help pull you out of existing patterns and create new ones.  I’m a Licensed Trainer of NLP® and I have tools to help.  Find out more:  http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net.

An End to Anxiety with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP – Client Success Story

Is anxiety a thing in your life?  It doesn’t have to be.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Anxiety is so unnecessary.  It’s not a given, it’s not a law of nature, it’s not something everybody shares–it’s something learned.  And it can be UNlearned.  That’s what we do at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.  Turn off stress, anxiety, and all the problems which flow from that–panic attacks, sleeplessness, stress eating, biting fingernails, abusing alcohol, and so on.  The responses to stress are individualized and learned as well.  Again, habits and patterns of behavior can be UNlearned.  And something new and useful put in its place.

Here is the story of Lisa, in video form.  She was suffering stress and anxiety, and it was affecting food and body weight.  She came to Mindworks Hypnosis and NLP for help.  And she found it!  Here’s her report after Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy:

“Hi Connie! I want to let u know I am doing simply fantastic!!!! No stress, no anxiety.  I still have 7 pounds or so to go but I’m already down 7 pounds!!! I went to my chiropractor today and he hasn’t seen me in like 3 weeks and he could not believe how calm I was! I said you are a miracle person. He asked me for your info so I gave it to him. He is a really nice guy and he wants to see you for weight loss. Hope he contacts you!!! Thank you thank you thank you! You have changed my life !!!! 😘😘😘” — Lisa, Seattle, WA.

Lisa is happy with the results. We’re sharing her happy. She’s ended anxiety.  Her words:  “No anxiety, no stress.” She’s lost 7 pounds so far (it’s easy when you remove stress eating). Others are noticing the changes in her, as well. She’s in the mindset of success. You can be, too. Learn more, we offer free in office consultations.

We’ve trademarked our proprietary service to remove stress:  it’s called “Designer Feelings.”  No one else does what we do at Mindworks.  Other hypnotists simply don’t come anywhere near to our skill set.  Hypnotherapy should be as individual as you are and we craft and customize everything for your goals.  How would you rather feel?  How would you rather live?

NLP is the Study of Successful Thinking.

Neuro Linguistic Programming

Neuro Linguistic Programming

Hi, hypnosis friends!

In my office and my client work, the primary tool is NLP.  Neuro-Linguistic Programming.  I blend this with creative hypnotherapy, reiki, and more.

My clients ask me: “What is NLP?”  Short answer:  NLP is the control panel for the mind.

Here, again, is a little video I created to help explain:

Dr. Richard Bandler (NLP’s co-originator) says: “NLP is the study of successful thinking. …It’s really all about problem solving, in the end.”

I am one of Dr. Bandler’s Licensed Trainers of NLP®.  In addition to owning and operating a career school teaching NLP, I also use it daily in my client work.  Our toolkit is the artful manipulation of unconscious strategies and taking conscious control of them—the pictures in our mind, our inner voice(s), our inner thoughts and beliefs, and how we feel in any given moment. All of these create what we do and how we perform and live–and ALL are under our control.

With NLP, we don’t study what went wrong (problems), we study who can do it right (it being anything) which we can then replicate.  We can adopt those unconscious strategies and  attain similar abilities and successes.  For example, it’s not how or why a phobia was created, it’s about the person who shook it off and changed.  He did that in his mind, and so can you.  With NLP, we have the strategy to end a phobia (any phobia).  I know it works because that was my very first “convincer” experience with NLP—having my decades long spider phobia vanish in a NLP class exercise.

It’s an amazing skill set for effective communications both within our mind and with others in the world, rapport, influence, self empowerment, and more.

More info about NLP is here  Our FAQ  Frequently Asked Questions Page.  If you’d like some rapid and powerful changes in your life, NLP is the way to go.  Find out more anytime,  I do offer a free in office consultation where I explain how I can help and answer questions about these tools of hypnosis and NLP.

Confidence in a Bottle – Setting an NLP Anchor

NLP control panel of the mind.

Take control of confidence.  Because you can.

Hi, Mind-Powerful!

Are you ready for a new tool?  One of the key pieces of NLP Neuro-Linguistic Programming is “anchoring.”  It’s about making connections in the mind that empower us.  Our mood, our actions.  How would you like to have a way to bring confidence into any project or thinking, on demand?  You can.  I’ve made this video to guide you through the process, step by step:

It can be as simple as that.  One memory, one touch.  Or you can get fancy and blend new feelings together.  How about confident and energized?  How about confident and creative?  You’ve had moments in your life of any and all good feelings.  Find them and follow these steps as the video lays out.  You can layer more than one feeling in the same touch–and create what we call in NLP parlance “a stacked anchor.”  I invite you to play with this.  Confidence changes everything.

Happiness in a Bottle – That’s NLP!

Hi, Hypnosis Friends, Seattle area and Beyond!

I was on social media yesterday and came across this video of a little girl singing.  5 years old!  She’s amazingly good.  Simon Cowell (from her audition for America’s Got Talent) called her:  “Happiness in a bottle.”  Yes, she is.  Here’s the video:

She is adorable, and yes, very much a happy maker.  Happiness!  What would it be like if we could control happiness, bring happiness “on demand,” just like watching a movie on demand?  We can!

This is precisely what I do at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.  NLP is Neuro Linguistic Programming, an interactive open-eyed conversational hypnosis.  With NLP, we find happy, we bottle it, and give clients control of it.  I can watch this video, feel good, and capture and replicate that happy feeling anytime I want it.  Minus the video.  I can also train my mind to automatically activate the good feeling anywhere I think it would be useful to replace a negative feeling.  (Stuck in traffic, for example.)

The right feeling for the right moments to optimize life!  This is NLP.  If we control how we feel, we control how we act.  And how we think.  How would you rather feel?  I choose happy!

If you’d like a taste of happy, or confident, or motivated, let me bottle some for you.  Music optional!

Stop smoking now

“I’m so happy to report to you that I haven’t had one cigarette since my session with you!!!”

Sharing here another successful client story. Carol quit smoking in one Neuro Linguistic Hypnotherapy Session. Here’s her full report:

“Hello Connie, I’m so happy to report to you that I haven’t had one cigarette since my session with you!!! It’s been pretty painless. The urges were almost non-existent.   I want to thank you so much for your work. You have really helped me so much. I’m breathing much deeper and I already feel healthier.

It’s amazing how well NLP works for addictions. It was actually so easy that I really can’t take credit for “kicking the habit”. It was kicked before I even left your office.

Thank you so much!! I will tell my doctor about you and help spread the word. I’m very thankful for you. You have a gift.” – Carol Samford, Seattle, WA.

The Yanny Laurel Reframe

Is is Yanny or Is it Laurel

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Have you heard about this very strange auditory sound bite…the Yanny or Laurel thing?  Absolutely fascinating.  It’s a word, computer voice generated.  But, what word?  Most people listening to this voice generation, hear:  LAUREL.  Fewer, hear: YANNY.  How can that be?  The same sound heard so differently?

Actually, this phenomenon is well known in my world, it’s one of the tenets of NLP:  we create our reality in our own mind.

When I listened to the sound bite the first time, all I could hear is Yanny.  And I’m like:  “Laurel?? What the heck are they talking about?  Michael heard Yanny, too.”  Then, I played with this device:

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/05/16/upshot/audio-clip-yanny-laurel-debate.html

It’s a toggle switch created by the New York Times, so you can change your perception of what you’re hearing.  With the pointer centered, you’re hearing the original sound.  Do you hear Yanny or Laurel?  Move the toggle left, move it right, and you’re altering the frequencies.  I did this!  And suddenly, Laurel popped!  My brain performed what we call, in NLP parlance, a reframe.  It’s not that (Yanny), it’s THIS! (Laurel).  A new way of seeing, in this case, hearing.

Suddenly, all I could hear in the sound bite was Laurel, Laurel, Laurel.  Yanny was now auditorially invisible to me.

I decided I wanted Yanny back.  So, I played with the toggle some more training my mind to hear either word, based on my intention.  So, now when I listen to the sound bite, I can hear either Laurel or Yanny, on demand.  I amuse myself by listening to the recording and hearing:  Yanny, Laurel, Yanny, Laurel, Yanny, Laurel.  Or, I can hear both together in the same word, overlaid.

We have power.  We have control.  The world is what we make it.

Is that a cookie?  Something delicious, a treat to be enjoyed?  Or, is it a piece of disgusting “no way, Jose!”?  Is that a cigarette, a familiar friend, or is it more like a person who you thought was a friend but you now see is a backstabbing liar who deserves to die a slow, horrible death?  Consistent exercise, is that a chore or a joy?  That spider thing over there, is that a terror or a whatever?  Your coworker, does he make your blood boil in annoyance, or does he make you laugh?  You decide.  We all can decide.  And our behaviors in the world follow our decisions.

Reframing is the power to see things in a new way (or hear).  We can lock those changes in place, and live in a different world.  Or, we can be flexible with them.  That’s called choice.

I remember how pleased I was when I was able to control this dancer.  Is she spinning clockwise or counter clockwise?  Either way, it’s up to me.

Spinning Dancer

I’ve always been fascinated with these phenomena.  Is this an old woman, or a young woman?

The power of mind is amazing.  And this Yanny, Laurel thing is a great example.  Play with the toggle switch tool I shared, and discover that you get to choose whether it’s Yanny or Laurel, just like you get to choose everything else in your world.

When is a Belief Like a Dead Rat?

A limiting belief is like a dead rat under the carpet.

A limiting belief is like a dead rat under the carpet.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

What’s a metaphor?  It’s a story with a meaning, on multiple levels.  What’s great about the unconscious mind is that it reads all meanings.

I had a client come in the other day.  She had a dead rat under the carpet.  It reeked.  So bad!  The whole room had this unpleasant aura about it, and those who entered found it unpleasant and wanted to escape. She had tried vacuuming the carpet.  And things would look somewhat nicer.  But the dead rat would still be there. She had even tried shampooing the carpet.  And things would smell a little fresher.  For a while.  But the rat would still be there.  And all that reek would return.

You might call it negative energy.  Negative thinking.  Self-critical, self-flagellating.  Self-sabotage in business and relationships and personal goals.   Failure after failure.  In short, and in her words: “My life is sh**.”

The dead rat was an idea in her mind, which I call a “limiting belief.”  A belief of “I’m unworthy” was stinking up her life.  How ridiculous.  And how false.  And how unnecessary.  And no one forced that rat under the carpet and let it fester for a lifetime, she did that.  By now it was very ripe and rancid.

What needs doing?  Remove the rat.

So, we did.

And now, her life is going to improve moment by moment, day by day.  She’s going to have a life of more joy, and success, and love, and power of all varieties.  She doesn’t know (yet) how big this change is for her.  I know.

Because I’ve done this same work to remove limiting beliefs with multiple people before.  A limiting belief is the “big bad” in the mind, and once it’s gone, so much positive energy flows into a life.  And positive outcomes.

Seattle hypnosis services NLP BellevueHow do we do that?  Remove a limiting belief?  That’s the power of skilled and creative NLP.  We can change anything.  My preferred method of making this happen is my creation, a trademarked service:  Designer Beliefs®.

Other therapies out there want to find the rat—which is good, but then they do nothing to remove it!  Instead, they analyze, discuss and debate.  Meanwhile, the stench remains.  My way is quicker and more effective.  We don’t discuss a problem, we end it.  That’s NLP.

As I’m getting older here, I’m becoming more and more aware:  life is short.  And it’s meant to be an adventure of love, joy, fun, freedom, gratitude, laughter, and so on.  Don’t waste it.

The Power of Your Feeling Mind

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Here’s another of my brief videos explaining aspects of the mind, how hypnosis works, and how rapid change happens.  This video is about how FEELINGS move us, more than thinking/knowledge.  For example, people know HOW to lose weight, they just don’t do it.  If they were sufficiently passionate and motivated and serious about healthy, it would be easy to lose weight.  I know, because I have, and I am.

People may KNOW that a fear is irrational, but thinking doesn’t erase fear.  Like my old spider phobia I used to have!  I knew how it originated.  That knowledge did nothing for me.  Knowledge doesn’t hold the key to change.  A new feeling replacing fear does.  How about calm, clear-thinking, confident (the three C’s).  Those would be a good new feeling.  And a new feeling leads to a new way of doing and acting.

NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) is control of feelings.  That simple.  We can construct and attach new feelings to moments of our lives and change anything we want.

People say to me “It sounds good, but how do I know it works?”  Come experience it yourself.  The proof is in the FEELING!  And enjoying new behaviors.  And reading over 300 testimonials of my NLP and hypnosis success on my website and 3rd party review sites.

Find out more any time!  I do offer a consultation meeting to any and all wanting to know about their own power of mind and how they could have a better life.

Another 5-Star Google Review for Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP – Quit Smoking Success

Hi, Seattle Hypnosis Friends!Get happy and successful with NLP and hypnosis!

I love my good feedback.  As I tell my hypnosis and NLP clients, when they win, I win.  And, in my office and in my school, we are very much in it to win it.  Some hypnotists go into this type of work thinking it’s an easy buck.  (It’s not.)  I do this work because I love it.  It’s my art!  It’s stimulating, challenging, and oh so rewarding when my clients get their successful outcomes.

Brian Jacob, of Seattle, Washington got his results.  He quit smoking in one session of Neuro Linguistic Programming and hypnotherapy at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.  After 15 years of smoking a pack of cigarettes a day, he has quit.

He wrote me a 5-star review on third party business review sites Google and YELP.  I love his success and, with his permission, I’m sharing his words:

“I have been smoking one pack a day for the past 15 years. I tried to quit so many times but it never worked. There was always something that pushed me right back to it.   One session with Connie… That’s right… One session!… And I was smoke free!  I still don’t know how she did it, but now every time I think about cigarettes I am like : “Oh no!”.

I left my cigarettes and my lighter at her office when I left and never had to buy cigarettes since then.

Some advice if you want to quit smoking and are considering using Connie’s Services:  Do not think of hypnosis based on what you’ve seen on TV. It is not a joke. Just be super open and play Connie’s game. I feel like the fact I was so open to her and treated hypnosis so seriously truly helped Connie to do the right work with me right away.

Hypnosis made me demonize cigarettes, yes. But the nicotine craving was still there for a couple of weeks. I used patches and I was done after 3 weeks of using them less and less every day. I didn’t need anything after that… I was cured.

Let’s be honest, being hypnotized is kind of a bucket list item. There is something fascinating about it. If it does not work for you (Which I truly doubt), at least you can say: I did it!

Anyway, let Connie guide you, she is FANTASTIC and I am so grateful I get to work with her.  Smoking sucks!”

As I told Jacob, HE made this happen.  Anyone can create any desired outcome for themselves.  WITH the right tools skillfully and artfully used.  I’m a Licensed Trainer of NLP®.  NLP is what he calls “Connie’s game.”  It is fun.  And it’s a game that Jacob won.  Goodbye to cigarettes and smoking, and hello to a healthier (and longer) life.

What’s it worth to you to successfully take control of your life and habits?  Habits don’t control us unless we allow them to.  We can control them, end habits, create new habits.  If you want fast change, do what works.  Skilled, ethical hypnotherapy and NLP.  Call me, and I’m happy to meet with you and explain this work.  It’s different.  And powerful.

What is NLP? A Simple Video Answer

NLP is the real deal for life change.

People have heard of hypnosis, and they know it works for all kinds of personal change such as weight management and smoking cessation.  But NLP?  Neuro Linguistic Programming?  It’s less well known.

It should be better known.  Because it’s amazing.  It’s been called “hypnosis on steroids.”  I blend hypnotherapy and NLP together in my private client sessions.  This turbo-charges change.  Check out the testimonial pages on my website to see if rapid, successful change happens or not  (Hint!  It does!)

I made a video this morning to share a simplified explanation of “What is NLP?”  I’m sharing it with you now:  🙂

As always, opportunities abound to learn more. Call me at 425-564-8608 and we can set up a consultation meeting.  NLP is the cat’s meow. Only better.

I’d love to share it with you.

One Session of NLP & Hypnosis, and So Many Life Changes

Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP for the Best in Seattle hypnotherapy.

Creating new worlds.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Sometimes, the mind allows change to tippy toe in, and it unfolds slow and steady.  And sometimes, the mind agrees to instant change: “OK, let’s do it!”  Boom!  Successful change is dramatic and far reaching.  Patricia F., of Seattle, WA had the fast version of success after we spoke with her unconscious mind.

She had ONE session, that’s it, a single 2 hour session of Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy with me at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP some weeks ago.  We worked on improving confidence and self esteem.  Here is her report:

“Hi Connie!  My positive attitude has attracted so many positive things and people since the day you changed my life.  I’m doing very well. From the day I left your office, I feel brand new.

I feel so confident. I start conversations with strangers, which is something I couldn’t do before. I was so negative, even when people complimented me, I’d respond negatively. I’ve made so many friends, more than I had in years. Wherever I go, I feel like the center of attention. I have actually lost weight since our session (24 lbs to be exact).  I believe with all the changes people are seeing in me, I will be sending people your way. 

You are and will always be someone I highly regard. Even though you don’t hear it, you probably feel it in your heart, that I thank you on a daily basis and consider you a blessing in my life!  I love you Connie!” –Patricia F, Seattle, WA.

Wow, as they say!

We didn’t work on weight loss, and yet, she’s lost 24 pounds.  We didn’t work on social confidence in particular, and yet, that has grown.  Just goes to show, when you feel good about yourself, life changes all around you.

I could tell you how I help people get the biggest bang for their buck in terms of positive change fast, but that would be revealing my trademarked secrets.  Take my trainings at career school, Mindworks NLP (http://www.seattlenlptraining.com) and you’ll get some insights.  Suffice it to say, I found the lynch-pin holding negativity in her life.  A limiting belief.  We removed it.  Took all of 1/2 hour.  We didn’t discuss it, or analyze it, we just removed it.  This was an interactive process, and then we cemented in the changes via hypnotherapy.

I love to get letters like the one today from Patricia.  Made my day.  She is a ray of positive energy, of sunshine, and she was all along.  All the negativity and self criticism she was experiencing before was a mistake, an aberration, and had no place in such a lovely lady.

Visual Montage Describing Hypnosis

Best Seattle Hypnotherapy & NLPHi, Seattle* Hypnosis Friends!

I’ve made a new video, which I’m sharing below!  🙂  My goal is to spread the word about the power of hypnosis to improve life.  I’m enjoying that, an improved life through hypnosis. I want you to, too.

Hypnosis is misunderstood in the world as something dark and strange.  WRONG!  Here’s what it really is:  a fun, pleasant mind space where your wildly creative unconscious mind is free and unfettered to create change without the limitations of the day to day thinking mind.  It’s inspiration.  It’s intuition.  It’s gut knowing.  It’s open choice and possibilities of new ways of being:  joy, confidence, motivation, energy.  I love hypnosis.

These videos are fun for me.  I select images (and buy them for my business use) that speak to me of the power of hypnosis.  Then I string them together with short, easy explanations.  A picture encodes so much information, more than words.  Look at the picture of the girl crouching, huddling, unhappy.  And look at who she really is, the shadow on the wall.  She’s amazing, she’s powerful, she’s resourceful, she’s strong.  And she can accomplish things.  That powerful one is you, with the help of hypnosis.

Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP for your New Year's Resolutions

It’s time for hypnosis!

This is a good time for change.  Call me and I’ll be happy to meet with you in a free 1/2 hour consultation meeting and explain this wonderful thing called unconscious mind and how we tap into it.

Live NLP Certification Training Event in the Greater Seattle Area, 8 Days in April 2018

Society of NLP - Your Guarantee of Quality

Society of NLP – Your Guarantee of Quality

Hi, Hypnosis & NLP Friends!

Sharing our latest press release.  We are pleased to announce another offering from the career school side of our work.  All the Best, Connie

Licensed private career school, Mindworks NLP, is pleased to announce an upcoming live training event in the Greater Seattle area: “Licensed Practitioner of NLP ®” certification program.  It is slated for 8 days, four consecutive weekends, April 7 & 8, April 14 & 15, April 21 & 22, and April 28 & 29, 2018.

NLP, Neuro Linguistic Programming, is a powerful methodology of personal change and influence involving understanding the mind, how it works, and how to create effective communications and connections.  With NLP training, we learn to read others (calibration), develop connections with others (rapport), wield influence through artful language (Ericksonian language), choose our own state of mind (anchoring) and so much more.  NLP can transform thinking, feelings, and behaviors in desired ways.  With these tools, it becomes very easy to create personal change and success of all varieties in ourselves and others.

This is a live, experiential program, not just learning “about NLP,” but rather, learning to “do NLP.”  Licensed Trainers of NLP®, Connie and Michael Brannan’s course is designed for anyone, business people, young people, parents, therapists, those interested in self-development, those curious about the power of mind, or those looking for a new career as an NLP Practitioner.  The uses of NLP are unlimited, for business success, improving relationships, effective parenting, enhanced learning, personal development, and more.  This certification comes through the Society of NLP®, the organization of the co-originator of NLP, Dr. Richard Bandler.

Students will learn not only techniques of change, but the underlying principles of empowerment and structure of change.  Students will learn how the mind creates our world, beliefs, and actions, and how we can alter those things.  Included:

–Well-formed goals

–Representational systems

–Eye accessing

–Calibration

–Rapport

–Meta model

–Milton model

–Anchoring

–Reframing

–Several powerful change processes

–And more.

–Bonus presentations on NLP for Sales, NLP for Personal Development.

Mindworks NLP offers a variety of mind power training courses, including hypnosis, NLP (Neuro-Linguistic programming certification programs), and stage hypnosis training.  Connie & Michael Brannan also offer private sessions of NLP blended with hypnotherapy in their clinical practice, Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP in Bellevue, WA.  http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net

Sleep Improvement – And So Much More

Perfect sleep, with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Perfect Sleeping, with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Hi, Seattle Hypnosis Friends!

Another happy client!  I’m pleased to share another report of successful life changes. Patti N, of Maple Valley, WA.  came in to address a lifelong issue with sleep.  She had three sessions of Neuro Linguistic Programming with hypnotherapy.  Here’s her report:

“I have made great internal changes from the time I have spent with Connie Brannan. I am so grateful for all I’ve learned in several different areas of my life, but most importantly my ability to fall asleep and stay asleep. I’ve struggled with sleep issues since my childhood and with Connie’s help in just a few sessions, can now “put those issues to rest”. Literally.

Connie is caring, positive, skilled and knowledgeable. She makes you feel welcome, comfortable and emotionally safe from the moment you step into her office. She has a wide variety of tools to help overcome the conscious negative self and it’s unhealthy perspective and attitudes and build new pathways in your subconscious to bring about positive changes in your life. I highly recommend her.” – Patti N., Maple Valley, WA

You see, we don’t just tackle one problem.  We tackle whatever creates the problem.  And then we un-create it!    In this case, sleep issues were driven by anxiety.  Anxiety was driven by negative thinking and ideas Patti had about self.  We changed ALL.  She feels better about herself now, anxiety leaves, and sleep improves.  All at the same time.  This is our goal always at Mindworks Hypnosis and NLP, and our current success with Patti.

It’s the same with any unwanted and/or destructive behavior.  As I like to say, we “go big or go home” with positive changes.  People get so much more than they bargain for when they come to work with me.  For example, we won’t just stop your fingernail biting.  We’ll end your anxiety.  No brag, just fact.

If you have some changes to make, my blend of Neuro Linguistic Hypnotherapy, plus other tools I incorporate (Designer Feelings®, Designer Beliefs®, reiki energy work, parts therapy, timeline work, and more) is a powerful blend to help.  Find out more anytime.  Call me!  425-564-8608, and I’m happy to set up a consultation meeting with you.

Discover What Works! Mindworks Hypnosis to Quit Smoking!

Stop Smoking, Seattle!

Stop Smoking, Seattle!

Written by guest blogger, Michael Brannan.  🙂

Did you know that hypnosis is described by a prominent scientific journal as: “The most effective way of giving up smoking” (New Scientist, issue #1845, October 31, 1992, p 6). This was the conclusion reached after reviewing some 600 studies totaling nearly 72,000 people.

To find the most effective way to give up smoking, researchers carried out a meta-analysis, statistically combining the results of more than 600 smoking cessation studies covering almost 72,000 people from across the globe.  By combining the results from so many separate studies, the meta-analysis enables the real effectiveness of each technique to be seen. The results are clear:  the use of clinical hypnosis for smoking cessation is the most effective approach to becoming smoke-free in existence!  And, one of the least expensive!

The results are in.  According to the extensive research, here are the relative
effectiveness of various therapies:

Nicotine Replacement Therapy/Patches and gum, 7%

Will power alone (“cold turkey”), 6 – 11%

Herbal remedies, Lozenges, Nasal sprays,   2 – 5%

Herbal cigarettes, Inhalers, 2 – 5%

Prescription drugs, 20%

Acupuncture, 24%

HYPNOSIS!, 60%

We’re Connie and Michael Brannan, owners and operators of Mindworks Hypnosis, and we’ve been helping people end the smoking habit for over 10 years. We use a unique and powerful blend of hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to stop smoking dead in it’s tracks.

You may not have heard of NLP, but it is the most advanced and powerful form of hypnosis there is. It has been called “hypnosis on steroids.” Knowing that hypnosis is already the most effective way to stop smoking, just imagine your results when you put it on steroids! Cool, huh?

You can quit, and we can help using this powerful, proven and safe method. And, unlike drugs, hypnosis has no negative side effects. It does, of course, have positive side effects–you’ll start feeling happy, energized, joyous, much better than you have in a long, long time. Call us and get on the path to healthy now: 425-564-8608.

Michael Brannan, Master Hypnotist & Licensed Trainer of NLP ™

Warm Regards,
Michael

Creative Hypnosis To Quit Smoking With Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Quit Smoking Seattle HypnosisHi, Hypnosis Friends!

Here’s a story to share with you, all about the hypnotic power of a half-eaten rotten banana.

I was working with a Seattle man the other day on quitting smoking. One of the elements of this work is our search for a useful feeling called “hell, no!” This gentleman, his “Hell, no!” was the thought of eating a rotten banana–he declared it the worst disgust feeling he could conjure. Coincidence, and propinquity! I had a half eaten well-past-its-prime squishy black banana in my trash can at the office at that very moment. I fished it out and we gave him several good whiffs, while I used my hypnotic tool kit to set that disgust equal to smoking. He’s done with cigarettes. Cravings are dead.

Long live the rotten banana!  And long live the happy and healthy nonsmoker.

At the same time, and on the flip side of the coin, we also customized some powerful, good Designer Feelings™ in place of smoking, and attached those to undo the habit.  Wonderful feelings that encourage healthy:  calm, contentment, in control, and so on.  Just as what generates disgust is unique person to person, so, too are the good feelings which can kick smoking desire to the curb.  We explore and generate both in our Greater Seattle hypnotherapy center.

There’s a science and methodology to Neuro Linguistic hypnotherapy blended with fun and creativity, and, guess what?  It works!  For quitting smoking, as well as a variety of other positive changes.  Are you ready to quit smoking?  Let’s do it!  Call me and let’s get started.

Hypnosis is “The Best Gift I Ever Gave Myself!”

The best Seattle Hypnosis - Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Hi, Hypnosis Blog Readers:  Here’s another happy client reporting on happy life changes:

“Initially I went to Connie feeling like I needed help with drinking too much alcohol and smoking. I was kind of skeptical because of what I had heard others say in the past about hypnosis but after meeting Connie on our consultation I felt like I would like to try it anyway.

I knew that self-esteem and confidence was the real issue all my life, but Prozac can only do so much for you…I’ve had 25+ years of depression and eating issues and drinking issues. After working with Connie for 4 sessions I say proudly that I actually have that self-confidence and motivation to take charge and make changes in my life.  It was the best gift I ever gave myself!

I recommend Connie to anyone struggling with similar issues that they want help with, she is very skilled and she personalizes things to work best for you.”

Anonymous, Renton, WA.

I’ll say it again.  When you change your mind, you change your life.  Bravo to “A” of Renton, WA.  “A” is taking control of life.  And that’s a good thing!  Goodbye to 25+ years of “depression” and unhealthy drinking behaviors.  Hypnosis works!

After a Bad Breakup, She Got Her Confidence Back!

Find your success with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Hi, Seattle Hypnosis Friends!

Happy First Day of Winter! It’s also Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. Transitions. It’s only brighter days from here on out, and brighter can be more than just sunshine in the sky!  It can be outlook as well. When we feel better, life changes all around us. Case in point:

Patty Fields, of Bothell, my recent Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and hypnosis client. She was in a dark place, but found her way to Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP and to me. Here’s her report after one session of work together, which she is allowing me to share:

“Hi Connie, I hope this email finds you well this morning. This is Patty. I just want to express how grateful I am for what you did for me. Thank you for restoring confidence in me.

Connie, when I called you that day, I was broken. I was driving around. I didn’t know where I was going. I had been feeling this way for a year since I moved here, but mostly for the past two weeks after my break up. Let me tell you, this is the first time I am shedding a tear since I last saw you, only this time these are tears of joy.

I haven’t cried, I haven’t looked back, I haven’t regretted anything. I have moved forward. Matter of fact, by Thursday, I had a job offer with one of the companies that I’ve been really wanting to work for. I had so much confidence during my interview.

I have been able to complete some tasks that I was neglecting and most of all, I am so proud to ignore my ex’s many attempts to contact me. Had I not met you, I’d have jumped right back into his arms but I know I’m good enough to do it on my own.

Thank you so much, Connie. You’re such a blessing. Thank you for changing my life.  Happy holidays!” – Patty Fields, Bothell, WA.

Brighter days, starting now!  Yay, Patty.  You go, girl!

Are you ready to put the past drama and trauma behind you?  We can do that.  How?  We hold onto memories (and wisdom gained from life experience) but let go of any sting or hurt.  We build up the good stuff, calm, confident, happy, optimistic…and off you go.  Into a better life.  Attracting the good things and people in your life that are worthy of you!  I’m happy to help.  Call me for a free consult meeting and I’ll be happy to explain what I do and how I can help.

Fear of Driving Ended with Skilled NLP- Mindworks Hypnosis

Success with Hypnotherapy

Happy Mindworks Hypnosis client note.

“Great Results.”  One more happy client testimonial for my work at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

John Whitley does a lot of driving for his career. Unfortunately, he suffered (past tense) anxiety and nerves driving, tense and gripping behind the wheel. When you’re nervous, you’re not thinking clearly and it makes you less safe on the road. That needed to change. So, he did. He came to Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.  And here’s his report after one session of Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy:

“Hello Connie, I just wanted to drop you a note about the first session. Great results. I have driven over the Pass two times since the first session, each time the drive gets easier. I cant put into words how much I truly appreciate your help. I would like to set up another session this week if you have time available. (another issue to work on) Thank you, John Whitley”

Yay, John!  Good job!

If you’d like to dump unnecessary fear, call me.  425-564-8608.  We can do that!

Mindworks Hypnosis Gets A Thank You From the Red Cross

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

As we posted earlier, Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP has offered financial help to hurricane relief victims.  We are contributing a portion of our hypnotherapy client session fees for the month of September to the American Red Cross. We got a very nice letter of thanks and we thought we’d share it!    To all our clients, thank you for helping us to help.  All the Best, Connie

Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP Donates to American Red Cross Hurricane ReliefDear Connie,

I wanted to extend my sincere thanks for your recent contribution to the American Red Cross in support of Hurricane Harvey relief following the catastrophic destruction caused by the storm. You made a tremendous difference for families when they needed you most.

It has been nearly a month since the deadly Hurricane Harvey devastated parts of Texas and Louisiana – flooding homes, submerging roads, making entire neighborhoods unreachable.

But thanks to your support, Connie, the Red Cross and partners were able to launch a significant Hurricane Harvey relief effort, providing safe shelter, food and comfort to families who lost everything. Thank you for being there.

In the last few weeks, the Red Cross and community partners have provided more than 405,000 overnight stays in emergency shelters due to Hurricane Harvey.

The Red Cross has served more than 2.6 million meals and snacks to people in need after the hurricane.

More than 2,900 Red Cross disaster workers and as many as 170 emergency response vehicles are on the ground right now, helping thousands of people affected by this disaster.

The Red Cross has distributed nearly 849,000 relief items like diapers, bug spray, cleaning supplies, and comfort kits that contain deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste and other hygiene items in Texas and Louisiana.

Connie, we could not have done any of it without you. It is your trust and your support that fuels our work. Our on the ground response from both Hurricane Harvey and Irma shows the difference that supporters like you make to families in need.

Stay tuned for our one-month report, which will share how donor dollars continue to make an impact to support Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

I cannot say it enough: Thank you.

Sincerely,

Harvey Johnson
Senior Vice President, Disaster Cycle Services
American Red Cross

Quit Smoking Now, Seattle, with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP Seattle help you quit smoking, end tobacco, and live a healthier life.

Stop smoking now

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

With the BC wildfires burning and blowing haze and smoke into our world here in the Seattle area, the LAST thing you need to be doing is adding your own smoke to the mix.

It’s hard enough to breathe out there.

Do you want change?  Are you ready to take control of the smoking habit and turn it off?  You can.  What people really don’t understand is how powerful they are, on the UN-conscious level.  Yes, you can stop smoking.

I have a new vehicle.  And one of the things I’ve been enjoying about it (besides the “new car” smell), is how clean the windshield is and how clearly I can see while I’m driving.  My old vehicle had rock chip repairs right in my line of sight and it was annoying.  However, every time I drove this past week or so, there were thousands of particles of smoke, ash, haze, landing on my windshield and attaching to my windshield.  So it’s hard to see.  The wipers don’t remove the particles.   Annoying times a thousand.  It’s like I need a car wash every day.

I was thinking.  That’s like your lungs.  Each and every time you smoke you’re depositing gunk and junk in there.  And it sticks around.  Not good.

Here’s the bottom line.  Your thinking mind isn’t enough to get the job done, if you’re like most people.  Your conscious mind is thinking, analysis, logic, reason.  I KNOW you have reasons to quit smoking.  If you haven’t (yet), that’s because your conscious mind isn’t strong enough to enforce change.  Your UN-conscious can!  This is the part of the mind we communicate with in hypnosis and NLP.  This part of your mind is the enforcer.  The feeling part of your mind.  Emotion, intuition, creativity.  The good stuff!  If you don’t feel like smoking, you won’t.  Your creative mind will find something more healthy and useful to do, and put it in the places where smoking habit was.  The UN-conscious drivers of behavior and habit are removed.  And you are suddenly able to do the things you’ve been consciously wanting to do.  Or not do.

It’s really that easy.  All you need to do is get your UN-conscious mind on board with your quit smoking project.  And that’s what I help you do.  Call me and I’ll be happy to meet with you and explain in detail what we do at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.  Lots of cool things.  NLP is a conversational, open-eyed interactive hypnosis, that is fun and fascinating.  It’s been called “hypnosis on steroids.”  When  you’re ready to go for it, so am I.

I look forward to meeting you.

All the Best,
Connie

The Freedom to Fly — Hypnosis & NLP Ends Fear of Flying

Goodbye to Interview Jitters — Resilient with Hypnosis

Best most effective hypnosis and NLP services.

Personal change & success with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Have you ever been nervous? Sometimes it makes good sense and is appropriate, in that it keeps you safe!  Keeps you from walking alone in dark alley ways, driving fast on icy roads, or petting the hungry bear coming up to your campsite.

Sometimes fear is useful. Sometimes not!  Most times, not!

Most times, fear and nervous and anxious are a lug wrench messing with life success. Inappropriate, and not useful.  Katherine H. of Seattle, WA was experiencing anxiety and dread.  We prepped her for job interviewing.  Dread won’t land a job, in particular!  An interview is a time to shine and be confident and communicate effectively.  After Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy, she did just that.

Here’s her report:

“Hi Connie, I’m doing quite well.  I’m feeling like my old self again, which is terrific! I interviewed for a job today in Bellevue! What I have noticed is that I don’t have those dread feelings anymore…Today as I was waiting for the interview, my brain said happy! It felt soothing. 🙂 It’s really nice not to be bothered with the roller coaster ride and I find that I am more resilient overall.” — Katherine H., Seattle, WA.

Terrific, is right!

How long did it take to achieve this turnaround, this transformation?  From fear and dread to happy, soothing resiliency?  Quicker than you think.  A few hours, a few sessions.  Not years of laborious therapies that like to talk about problems.  We don’t analyze problems, we do the work to END the problems.  If other therapies had the tools to do so, they would.  They don’t.  Here’s what works:  pure NLP done right combined with creative (not canned or generic) hypnosis.  I love what I do, because it is creative.

Some Seattle area hypnotists will read a generic script at you in a 45 minute hypnosis session, and call it good to go.  In my book, not good enough.  Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP offers something very, very different.  A creative flow of words, ideas and communications designed for your mind and life, that lasts 1.5 to 2 hours.  Interactive! Fun!  Fascinating!  And it works.  NLP is a “high tech” hypnosis, and very few are skilled in it, which is unfortunate.  Done right, it’s amazing.

The proof is in the pudding.  We’ve updated the website today, http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net with more client success testimonials, in addition to Katherine’s. We’ve shared over 250 client reports and comments of their successful life changes at this point.  If you’ve got a few hours to spare, they’re great reading and thoroughly inspirational!

You didn’t know change was so easy, did you?  Find out for yourself, any time!  Call me at 425-564-8608 for a free consultation and learn more about what I do and how I can help.

She Can Fly!

Seattle hypnosis & NLP client ends fear of flying with Mindworks Hypnosis.

Yes, you did! Good job ending fear of flying.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

I love it when my clients let me know how they’re doing. It makes my day to get a happy email telling me how success and a better life is unfolding after our Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and hypnotherapy work.

Jennifer H., of the Greater Seattle area, wrote to me and shared her joy after kicking fear of flying.  After 17 years of allowing fear to stop her from getting on a plane, she successfully flew to Europe.

In her words: “I did it!”

Goodbye, flight anxiety.  It’s not a thing for her, anymore. The world is her oyster.  Now. Jennifer can experience the joys of connection and travel, and share those adventures with her kids as well.  Makes me happy!  This is why I love my work.

17 years of not flying is over. The world is her oyster, now!People think phobias and fears are such a big deal.  And so they are, to the sufferer. Unless you find the right tools to remove them.  🙂  To a skilled NLP hypnotist, it’s relatively easy to remove a phobia.  I had a spider phobia for decades, myself.  I don’t have it, anymore.  I couldn’t care less about spiders, they’re not on the radar, and take up none of my mental energy.

Jennifer’s crippling fear of flying is gone now.  It’s my hope for her that her mind now expands to consider, look how I overcame this thing.  I must be powerful, and I didn’t even know it.  I wonder what else I can control in my life.  (Lots, Jennifer!)

If you’d like to learn more about what this is all about, this Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) work, I’m happy to explain.  It’s a fascinating, interactive, open-eyed conversational hypnosis.  And, in the hands of a smart and creative person, it works!  To help you get from A, to B.  Any A, any B.  For Jennifer, it was from Seattle to London.

Feel Great and Lose Weight — In that Order!

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

I came across this interesting photo and article on the internet, about so called “Body Positivity.” Embracing obesity as attractive.

While I applaud people for finding a place in themselves where they feel good, I know there’s a way to feel good about yourself AND achieve a healthier weight.  It’s called hypnosis.

Overweight almost my entire life, “body positivity” did not exist during my formative years. Actually, people that liked fat, that was considered some kind of weird fetish. So, I don’t go there. I can’t. Overweight is not attractive to me.  And even if you successfully convince yourself that overweight is attractive, there’s no denying the health risks. Overweight will shorten your life!

I didn’t like how I looked, and I KNEW it wasn’t healthy. I’m glad I never fell into a “body positivity” mindset.  Oherwise, I wouldn’t be enjoying the health and energy I’ve been enjoying for the past 10 years at a lighter weight.  A better quality of life.  Knowing I’m going to have MORE life.  What happened to me 10 years ago that changed my life and changed my body? I discovered hypnosis.

Hypnosis & NLP for effective long term weight loss.And I lost weight.  Skilled Hypnotherapy and NLP make weight loss easier than you think. It’s based on HOW you think. I’m now lighter (a LOT) and have kept it off for about 10 years. Here’s my before/after pics and an article, Feel Great & Lose Weight, that I’ve written about the transformation:

Feel Great & Lose Weight

“Fat acceptance.”  Acceptance usually means, it’s something I can’t change.  In terms of your weight and eating and health habits, that’s false.  You can change.  I can help you do it.

Learn more if you’d like one on one private sessions of Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy® to help you find your healthy.

Your Sporting Mind

Your best sports, with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLPHi, Hypnosis Friends!

A new season is upon us, summer begins in a couple weeks. Summer, in my mind, means enjoying activities in the great outdoors. Biking, swimming, sports! Baseball! Golf! Tennis!

The topic today is hypnosis and your sporting mind.  I’m sharing a simple technique to capture your “zone” state for great play.

The article I’ve written and technique are here:

http://mindworkshypnosis.net/hypnotizer/the-monthly-trance-setting-your-zone-state-for-great-sports/

Here’s the outcome: you play harder, smarter, better. Whatever brings you pleasure and the win. As an extremely competitive person myself, I know the joy of winning. You can have it, too, in your life’s passion sport or any just-for-fun sport du jour.

All the Best,
Connie

PS: Hint! This same technique can be used for any desired “zone” state of mind even beyond sports. How about that articulate flow for the business presentation? How about that positive confidence for the job interview?

A Power Approach: We Don’t Talk About Change, We Create It!

Another Happy Review of Seattle's Best Hypnotherapy and NLP

Another Success Story

Hi, Greater Seattle hypnosis friends!

Another happy client shares her success with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP services. Diana, of Woodinville, WA, came in for several issues, which we worked concurrently.  She did GREAT, she collaborated and did what I asked, to create a new way of thinking.

“When you change how you think, how you think changes you!”  My hubby and biz partner, Michael, coined that phrase!  And it’s absolute truth.

Here’s what Diana says after 4 sessions of Neuro Linguistic Hypnotherapy at Mindworks Hypnosis:

“Connie, as we finished up our sessions today I wanted to thank you and say a few words.

I had been to counseling at least three times over the past 28 years for: procrastination/not motivated/negative/low energy/self-esteem-confidence. Well I spent a lot of [time] talking, however, I did not receive much help, only more frustration.

I have always been open to alternative therapies but had not explored the
possibilities of what Hypnosis could do for me until this year. I researched
Hypnotherapists in my area. I viewed your web site and read the patient
reviews. After I watched your video, I felt there was a connection and
believed you could help.

I knew I had made the right choice the minute I walked into your office. The office is very calming, light, bright & creative. You are very confident and explained what therapies you use, your degrees, certificates, years of experience including your own successes. I was ready to get started!

It was all so easy and relaxing. I was amazed after the first session how I
had changed without even thinking about it. I just did not want to be
un-motivated, I had energy to get things done – I did not go crazy by any
means but it felt good to think to myself,” hmm I really don’t feel like
watching anymore TV”. I did not want to put things off until tomorrow – before, I was the queen of making things sound so much better if I did them tomorrow!

It felt awesome to see myself energized to go out for a walk or work in the
yard, instead of ugh – really a walk. I don’t crave the salty snacks, if I eat them – I just have a few and I’m satisfied. The things that bothered me are simply gone, just like you said – whoosh. The hypnosis itself is amazingly relaxing, I was aware of everything – yet the time slipped by.

I am so excited to work with my Self Hypnosis..I let you know how it goes. Thank you again!” — Diana S, Woodinville, WA

It seems like a big bundle of stuff, doesn’t it?  Procrastination.  Self Esteem issues.  Confidence issues.  Negative thinking.  It’s all connected, and our work touches all of it.  We don’t work on one behavior or THING.  We work on life.  Here’s an analogy…pro bowler.  They know how to hit pins to knock down other pins with the one ball roll.  We do that, too.  I look for the biggest and best things to change which will have the most positive impact for the person in front of me.  That skill is part of the artistry of hypnosis and what makes a creative hypnotist superior to a script-reading hypnotist.

I love my art.  And I’m happy for Diana.  I taught her a great tool, called “Self Hypnosis.”  So she can work any goals for herself on an ongoing basis, utilizing this power part of the mind–her unconscious mind.  Conscious mind work didn’t get her very far, as she said, 28 years of counseling.  This approach is very different.  We don’t analyze problems, we heal and end them.  28 years of counseling (and no success) or 4 sessions with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP (and life changes galore).  Which sounds better?  You pick!

The Proof & Power of Hypnosis & NLP: Client Testimonial

Get happy and successful with NLP and hypnosis!Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

I so much love what I do, helping and healing work. And I love hearing from my clients months later, of their long term successes continuing to unfold.

Clients usually notice immediate positive changes in the days around our work, however, that’s not the end of it!  We program into the unconscious mind a progression of success building over time–using a proprietary process I invented.  My client, Taylor, reports just that, long term success  This letter, (enclosed below with permission) made my day!

“Hi, Connie!  We worked together a few times last year on improving confidence and self-worth. Working with you was a HUGE turning point in my life. I have never felt better. The practical tools we created together and that you customized for me always work, without fail. Infinite thank you’s to you, awesome you!

In light of how highly I think of you and your work, I am now reaching out to you to help a family member. I can’t think of anyone better or more qualified to help than you. He has done talk therapy a lot. . . He needs subconscious work with you and tools to bring himself back to a state of balance and happiness.

Thank you for being you and for all that you do. You’ll always hold a special place in my heart! (Subconscious and conscious!!)  With love + gratitude, Taylor”

Yay, for Taylor!  And yes, I could help the family member.  I’d be happy to do so.

If you’d like to learn more about the power of skilled Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and hypnotherapy, call me!  I do offer a free consult meeting.

Free to Fly! Hypnotherapy Success Testimonial for Mindworks Hypnosis and NLP.

Goodbye to Fear of Flying, with Seattle Area's Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Goodbye to Fear of Flying, with Seattle Area’s Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

A recent Seattle area client came to Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP to remove flight anxiety. This anxiety was installed in her 18 years ago and had remained since then.  She was experiencing all manner of symptoms of fear around flying:  anxiety, physical tension, feeling hot, impaired breathing, catastrophic thinking, and so on.  It was triggered by crowded airports, TSA security checkpoints, walking down the jetway, and the very experience of flying itself. She had to resort to pharmaceutical drugs in order to be able to get on an airplane and fly.

Unnecessary fear.  Not good.  Not useful.  Not fun.

What would it be like if it were different?  And what would she prefer if anxiety were gone? This is the question I posed to Jennifer G. of Sammamish, WA.  She had one two-hour session of Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy.  We created her new Designer Feeling ® for flying, a blend of calm, happy, free and peaceful.  We removed anxiety, and did the work to automate this new feeling in its place.  Goodbye, flight phobia.  🙂  Plus we gave her a secret weapon to take with her on her upcoming trip, and any future flights. An NLP instant trigger that she controls to bring this new calm and happy feeling on demand.

Success!

Here’s her report, after our one session:

“I just wanted to touch base with you and let you know that I had a wonderful trip to South Africa. My anxiety was lessened immensely and I was able to prepare for my trip without any pre-trip anxiety. I had no anxiety on the short leg of my trip, and just a little on the 15 hour flight, which, I think anyone would get a little anxious on a 15 hour flight.  Working with you was a rewarding experience and I’m so glad that I chose this option! Thanks!”  —  Jennifer G, Sammamish, WA.

Yay, Jennifer.  If she ever wanted to erase ALL remnants of anxiety from any future long flights, we could do that as well.  Typically, I work with people 2 to 4 sessions for any given desired success.  This was her result after just one session!  Impressive!

Skilled NLP is a real tool helping real people to achieve real results.  Find out more anytime.  I do offer a free in office consultation meeting.

Goodbye to Suffocation Feeling — Client Testimonial for Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Best Hypnosis in Seattle Area Mindworks HypnosisHi, Hypnosis Friends!

Another Seattle area client reports on wonderful changes after working with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.  Here is a report by Helen, of Renton, WA.

She came in primarily for weight management and healthy eating, however, she also had an unwanted and unnecessary problem of feeling suffocated in various stress situations.  Not good.  Not useful.  So, we got rid of that in the course of our weight loss work, as well.

Here’s her report:

“Hi, Connie!  The issue of the feeling of suffocation has completely gone! No longer an issue. Just gone!  YAY for success!

Re:  hypnosis for weight loss… I can tell you that my dietary tastes have modified and some positive changes we made have really “stuck,” and that’s good.

I feel good enough about your services that I sent my longtime buddy to you about a month ago to overcome his “white coat syndrome” with doctors.  Feel free to use me as a reference!”   Helen Schwalm, Renton, WA.

That’s the idea here.  We don’t work on just one thing, we work on whatever a client presents.  One of my goals working with clients is to find connections between issues, and go for the “strike.”  Like bowling.  If you hit the right pins in the right way, it takes them all down.  People get more “bang for the buck” at Mindworks.  We’ll spread the positive change around, to more than one area of life.  You may come in for weight loss, and get tools for stress release as well.  You may come in to quit smoking, and gain confidence for business success and relationships.  I find out what you need, and we create that to help you attain your specific goals.  This IS a customized service.  No script-reading, generic, less-powerful hypnosis here!

We go for it.  Using all my tools and creativity, including hypnosis, both direct and indirect, NLP processes (hypnosis on steroids), energy work, timeline work, parts therapy, and more.

Hypnosis is an art form.  And I’m happy Helen is happy with the new canvas of her life.  Again, you can learn more any time in my free consultation meeting.  Call me and let’s get started.  425-564-8608.

Another 5-Star Yelp Review for Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Another Happy Review of Seattle's Best Hypnotherapy and NLP

Another Success Story

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Vicki of Bellevue, WA is sharing her success after working with me. She’s healthier, and lighter by 77 pounds in a matter of months.  She wrote a review on the business review site, Yelp. She’s a happy camper. She gives Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP 5-stars, as good as it gets. Here’s what she wrote:

“Vicki M.
Bellevue, WA
5.0 star rating 2/6/2017

In July, 2016 I was hospitalized with blood clots in my lungs. After I got discharged I decided to start taking better care of myself. A friend of mine referred to me Connie. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. As of today, I have lost 77 pounds. I have been on many different diets over the years, and now I eat what I like but I recognize when I am full. Due to the weight loss it has helped with reducing the clots and an extra plus, I started out in a size 16 and now wear a 6.”

That’s awesome.  A few months of healthier choices, and she’s improved her health dramatically.  Size 16 to a size 6!!  Good job, Vicki.

So, what is this thing called hypnotherapy?  It’s you, finding power and resourcefulness within yourself.  I guide you to it (it’s absolutely there), and you get to use it to accomplish things.  What kind of things?  ANY things.  Weight loss is one, such as Vicki worked. Habit change such as quit smoking or alcohol is one.  Dumping a phobia is one.  Sports improvement is one.  More productivity at work is one.  More confidence in relationships is one.  And so on, the list is endless.

And one change has a way of cascading in the mind into even more healthy and desired changes.  The brain gets excited and says:  “Yay, me!  I’m powerful.  What else shall I do to create more Joy?”

I’m happy when my clients share their success.  In fact, we were just recognized by Yelp as one of the highest reviewed businesses in 2016.  That’s right.  When you find what you are passionate about and love to do (I did) and you are good at it (I am), well that’s joy for me.  Hypnosis is my joy.  I’d love to share it with you, anytime.

Call me at 425-564-8608 and we’ll set up a free consultation meeting.

Wishful Thinking vs Wish-Fulfill Thinking

Happy Trance

When Dreaming is Useful.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Words are my work tool.  Words are power.  Words move us and matter.  I was thinking the other day about the phrase “Wishful Thinking.”  It has a negative connotation. If we’re dreaming about something we’d like someday that we don’t figure will manifest, we say: “Oh, that’s just wishful thinking.” We don’t expect success.  We don’t work for success.  And we don’t get success.

Hypnosis and NLP are absolutely NOT “wishful thinking” like that.  You know what they are?  WISH-FULFILL THINKING.  Wish fulfill.  As in, get what you’re wishing for.  People are so much more powerful to create success in their lives than they know.  I know. People are powerful, and when the mind is directed via focused positively-directed wish-fulfill thinking, success happens.

We do tend to get what we expect.  Expectation colors all, and reveals itself in what we do, how we act in the world.  Wishful thinking expects failure. So failure happens.  Wish-fulfill thinking expects success. Success happens.  Henry Ford is famous for expressing this same idea:  “If you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right!”

How does this work?  The mind moves in the direction of its dominant thoughts, so when an outcome (such as successful weight loss, habit change around smoking, calmness instead of anxiety, etc.) becomes dominant, that’s what we do.  And how we live.  That’s what we create for ourselves in our lives.

Hypnosis and NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming are all about directing the mind to focus on what we want, not what we don’t want.  And we train the mind to have an expectation of success.  “Dream wantonly, and expect to succeed.”  This is wish-fullfill thinking.

As always, the proof is in the pudding.  Check out my client reports.  Directing your mind to success (in this UNconscious realm, outside of conscious interference, back behind the curtain in the mind as it were) works to create success.  Any success.

I offer private client sessions to help you direct your mind and create life successes.  Find out more in my free in person consultation.  I’m happy to meet with you.  I love to chat about what I do and how the mind works.  That’s why I named my business “Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.”  Dump the wishful thinking, and find your power with unconscious wish-fulfill thinking.

5-Star YELP Review for Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP for Success and Joy.Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Are you ready for a new year?  I know I am.  What’s nice about a new year is a new start and a recognition of new opportunities to get the life we want.  We call them:  New Year’s Resolutions.  I can help with those, whether they are New Year’s Resolutions, or Autumn Resolutions, Winter Resolutions, Spring or Summer Resolutions.  Change can happen anytime.  Now is good.

Meanwhile, here’s more evidence that I can help.  I received another 5-star review on the internet for my services, by Gina M, of Issaquah, WA. 🙂 She says:

“I saw another review of Connie where the person referred to Connie as her “fairy godmother” – and I couldn’t agree more with that sentiment! I saw Connie for the first time last Spring about some anxieties I was having about a relationship and in just one 2 hour session it was gone. Gone gone. Gone in such a way, it seemed silly and inconceivable that I ever got anxious about the relationship at all. Which then gave me the capacity to fully enjoy every moment and my relationship has flourished ever since.

A few months after that – I decided I wanted to tackle another “issue” – and her work with that was again so magical and instant that I’ve been seeing her once a month to “tick off”, one by one, any other obstacles that had been in the way of my goals.

One of my favorites was in September – I saw her b/c my frustration with a co-worker had reached a breaking point, and I couldn’t even stand to be in a meeting with him b/c my blood would boil out of frustration and annoyance and it was starting to affect my own performance. My feelings were so intense that even though I knew Connie’s work would help calm me down to the point where I could tolerate him – I didn’t expect what happened. After my session with Connie – the next time I had a 1:1 with this co-worker, not only was I NOT annoyed with him in the slightest – I actually found myself appreciative of his qualities that used to annoy me – because with the cloud of frustration (and nearly anger) gone – I was actually able to see the unique value and perspective that he brought AND I could finally see that he appreciates and values me and my perspective as well. Magical.

Highly recommend.” — Gina M., Issaquah, WA.

Thank you, Gina.  Anybody can have success.  Of any variety.  All they need to do is focus their mind in the proper way.  That’s where my services come in.  To help you think differently, do differently, interact differently, feel differently, in ways that service your personal goals.

Call me at 425-564-8608 and we’ll get started.  I’m happy to explain more about what I do in a free in office consultation.

Happy New Year!!

Resolve this: Hypnosis for Weight Loss

It’s a Weighty Issue – Food Choice, Portion Control, and Motivation to Exercise

Connie Brannan, CHt. & Licensed Trainer of NLP® shares her personal and professional insights into success with weight management.  Connie has used the tools of NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming and self hypnosis to transform herself:

From this...
From this…
Happy and healthy with hypnosis.
To this!

 

 

 

 

Find your healthy with Mindworks Hypnosis
Find your healthy!

It’s a Weighty Issue – Part I: Food Choice

It seems that a large percentage of the population is thinking about their weight and dieting at any given moment, reading about this new diet, that new food plan, purchasing diet products, and/or in the midst of dieting. Our weight truly is a national obsession.

So, why do diets and food plans fail so miserably to help people achieve a healthy weight and stay there? A “diet” is a conscious (thinking) endeavor. It involves analysis, logic, and willpower.  That can’t cut it long term.

There’s more power in the mind beyond thinking.  We are driven by unconscious (outside of awareness) desires.

We THINK we know why we do what we do. And we’d be wrong. Weight management and issues therein are a complex web beyond conscious choices They involve unconscious patterns of behaviors, and embedded beliefs about ourselves and the world that can limit us. These unconscious drivers are just that, unconscious, beyond our awareness. They get embedded in us and like a program installed on a computer they run and run and run.

What is the benefit of hypnotherapy for weight loss? We can actually get in there and address and change these patterns of unconscious behaviors and limiting beliefs. Update the programs running in us. Change how we feel and what we do. These changes lead to long-term sustained weight loss success and weight management.

Weight loss is a weighty issue. Yes, it is. There’s a lot involved. In my office working with clients we address a variety of changes that may be useful. I’m planning a series of essays which I intend to share here and on my blog, dealing with the issues hypnosis helps such as food choice, portion control, emotional eating, motivation to exercise, self image, negative self talk, limiting beliefs, time management and priorities, and more aspects of the weight management puzzle.

The number one change needed on everybody’s list is food choice — is there a predilection toward sugars and sweets? And/or too many carbs such as pasta, pizza, and potatoes? Not enough vegies? Drinking enough water? I’ve heard it all, uncontrollable attraction to unhealthy choices, such as cookies, chocolate, candy, cake, donuts, sugary sodas, French fries, chips, etc. And the gamut of ho-hum all the way to aversion responses to healthy choices.

Willpower alone can’t cut it!  What is willpower? It activates during the “I want it” vs. “No, I’m not going to have it.” struggle. We’re torn between two competing desires. Willpower is the conscious mind taking control and activating a conscious decision. Usually, it’s the “no.” Willpower is weak. Willpower is difficult to maintain long term (yo-yo dieting proves this).

With skilled hypnosis, we erase the need for willpower altogether. Let me say that again. We get rid of any need for willpower. Willpower is forced to the surface when there’s a struggle. What if there were no struggle? What if your brain just said “no” automatically? There’d be no use for willpower and it wouldn’t even come into play. You’d just be doing something different because it feels right.

For example: I have no interest or desire to jump out of an airplane for sport. NONE. In fact, it’s not going to happen. It’s on my “no way” list. Do I obsess about jumping out of an airplane? Of course not. It never enters my mind. Do I struggle to force myself not to jump? Of course not. Do I jump? No. It’s not what I do. What if eating unhealthy became a “no” rather than a struggle? That’s what skilled hypnotherapy achieves. Will power goes back on the shelf. Don’t need it!  We move beyond the willpower struggle.

Here are some of my client results/comments regarding activation of this change:

“Hi Connie, Just had to send along this spread of the party I was at last night. All of the things I find the hardest to resist! Meats, cheeses, bread, crackers, nuts. It was so nothing to me! I didn’t have ONE THING! And the best part was I didn’t WANT one thing!

It’s just so amazing to me. I am sure it’s “another day at the office” for you but, for me…oh my goodness it was so awesome to not obsess over having it or not…wow. Thank you!!!”  – Lori H., Mercer Island, WA

Is her willpower in play? No. The craving for these particular food choices is gone.

“I’ve lost 40# in 4 months… My sweet tooth and chip obsession disappeared overnight.  My self esteem skyrocketed.  It’s been months since I’ve seen you and yet I’m still right on track with my goals.” E. – Seattle. Is her willpower in play? No.

“I don’t crave ice cream at all now!  Or chocolate.  I am in shock!!!”– Saliha B., Issaquah, WA.  Is her willpower in play? No.

I hope you get the picture here. These people are not “dieting” to avoid sweets and “temptations” and they’re not struggling, they’re just automatically choosing different in ways that serve their weight management success. That’s what skilled hypnosis can do. Hypnosis creates the positive changes that move people by addressing and changing the unconscious patterns. No diet can do that.

Hypnosis stops overeating.
Hypnosis stops overeating

It’s a Weighty Issue – Part II:  When to Say When

I love helping people with weight loss. People come into my office and itemize their issues: what they eat, when they eat, why they eat (when they’re not hungry), how fast they eat, and all the accompanying aspects of self image and internal dialog, limiting beliefs, and so on. Many things need tweaking for success.

The topic of the moment is: Portion Control. When to say when. How to become attuned to the right amount of food for your body and energy needs. How to eat less and enjoy it more. Here is part two of my continuing essays on the various aspects of the “Weighty Issue” of weight loss and weight management, and the successes to be had through Neuro Linguistic Hypnotherapy.

Our mind has unconscious strategies for everything we do. How we act, how we think, what we choose, what we perceive as real. We acquire these strategies through learning. They become embedded in us like programs running on a computer, which we then call “habits.” Habits are learned, and they can be unlearned.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP–a conversational hypnosis) studies successful unconscious strategies, and we can grab, install, and live those strategies in ourselves. In studies of naturally slender people, we have successfully gathered naturally slender food strategies. Via NLP and hypnosis, we can install these into people who would benefit from them. This is a necessary piece of the work I do with clients! A client can adopt an unconscious new strategy and find themselves engaging in new behaviors without any mental effort.

We get clients in tune with physical hunger vs. emotional hunger. The mind can notice the difference. Emotional hunger is “fed” in new non-caloric ways. Physical hunger leads to a healthy choice strategy in the mind, meaning you’re more likely to reach for an apple rather than a cookie, a salad rather than a cheeseburger and fries. We implant a speed strategy, how fast to eat. Slowing it down is usually helpful. We implant a beverage of choice strategy: water! And then most importantly, we implant an exit strategy. When to STOP EATING. This is set at the point of satisfaction, when the body’s nutritional and energy needs are met in accordance with achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.

There are, sadly, desperate people out in the world who don’t realize the control they have over their own minds and bodies, and they go to bizarre extremes like surgeries that attempt to PHYSICALLY limit food intake. That’s not necessary! Installing new unconscious strategies with hypnosis creates better success, without the expense or health risks.

When it’s all said and done, the weight loss client finds themselves engaging in:

–Less emotional eating

–Healthier choices

–Smaller portions

–More satisfaction.

It’s all good.

If your unconscious strategies (habits around food) need adjustment, it’s so much easier than you think to make healthy changes.

It’s a Weighty Issue, Part III:  Let’s Get Moving

Motivation to Exercise with Hypnosis
Motivation to Exercise with Hypnosis

Beyond food choice and portion control, motivation to exercise is high up on the list of changes desired for weight management. “Let’s get physical, physical! I wanna get physical …” That song with its driving beat makes me think of movement. Working out.  Active life. Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy is a way to make it happen.

Patterns and habits are learned. And, if they don’t serve us, they can be re-learned differently, in ways that help.

The “magic” of NLP is, simply put: We can attach new feelings to any activity. What would it be like to be full of energy and motivation to exercise? What if exercise became something wonderful and pleasurable and eagerly anticipated? What if your mind simply said: “This is who I am and this is what I do”? Do you suppose it would be easier to increase your physical activity level?

Here’s one unwanted pattern that I often see with clients:  couch potato. Are you one? That’s a person who has developed a habit of sitting around, watching TV or surfing the web, with a body at rest for hours at a stretch. Oftentimes, this is coupled with mindless eating. That’s a sure fire formula for obesity.

With hypnosis and NLP, we can change “I’m too lazy” and couch-potato habits into a new mindset about exercise. A new mindset leads to new behaviors. In our work, we create and install new, useful mindsets for exercise. Here are some examples:

–I love it. It’s fun.

Or…

–It’s my routine. It’s just who I am and what I do.

Or…

–I have to. (a sense of urgency and necessity)

Or…

A combination of any of the above.

New beliefs go with the new mindset:

–I’m an active person. I’m a healthy person. I have energy. I make the time to be physically active, as this is something wonderful for me. This is “me” time. I deserve healthy.

And new behaviors emerge:

I go to the gym. I go for walks. I find the time. I look for opportunities for movement, taking the stairs rather than the elevator, parking a little further from the store front, and so on.

Hypnosis (and in that word I include NLP) is a way to change your thinking and feeling and behaviors and beliefs to become who you want to be. It really is endlessly fascinating work as every person is different and their desires , beliefs and motivations are different. The game and the fun is finding what will work with each individual and installing those changes. This is why I often say hypnosis is an art form as much as it is a science.

Motivation to be active physically is just one piece of this puzzle, within a larger framework of healthy changes.  Everyone on the planet knows how to lose weight. It’s a very simple and well-documented formula. Eat less, make healthy choices, and be more active. What stops you? We find out and we address those things and create new habits. The power of hypnosis and NLP is that they are tools that encourage new healthy behaviors, and help people automate those choices.

Happy and healthy with hypnosis.
Connie Brannan, CHt. & Licensed Trainer of NLP

Warm Regards,
Connie

What is Hypnosis?

Your unconscious mind is pure positive energy.

24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week — Connie Brannan, CHt.

Hi, Hypnosis Curious!

There’s lots of misunderstandings about hypnosis and hypnotherapy floating around in the world, to the point that different arts use the tool but call it something else.  “Guided Meditation.”  “Visualization.”  “Dream Sculpting.”  and so on.  People fear the name Hypnosis, thinking it’s something dark and weird. Nope!  So wrong.

Here’s what it is:  It’s an effective tool to actuate the best of us.  The best in us.  How?  By communicating with the unconscious mind, where our power lies.  And it’s an amazing, wonderful connection.  Here’s what I say!

“Your unconscious mind is pure, positive energy 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It will do  anything for you, be creative, solve anything, find new choices, actuate healing, make success of all varieties. NLP and hypnosis are simply methodologies for inserting precise and clear  instructions into the unconscious mind for these goals.” — Connie Brannan, CHt., Licensed Trainer of NLP ®

And believe me, now is a time when bringing out our best really matters.  The world is in transition (some of us would say going to h-e-double-toothpicks in a handcart).  We need the best in ourselves.  And it’s there and accessible via hypnosis!  And NLP, even more so.  NLP is a super accelerated hypnosis.

As always, the proof is in the pudding, successes and goals realized through skilled hypnosis, like the 200+ success stories on my website.  Find out more anytime.  I offer private sessions and one on one customized services utilizing the art of hypnosis and NLP.

Secret #2: Skilled hypnosis and NLP help us activate those choices.

If this current climate disturbs you, let me help. I work one-on-one with clients to create new Designer Feelings®.  If you are in need of some stress and negative emotion release right now, call me and I can help. Pronto!

We create new feelings, together. Collaboration! We attach those new feelings where they are useful in your life. We transform a problematic state of mind and body, such as fear, sadness, hopeless, etc. into power and joy and success generators.

Offer for my blog readers: for the balance of November I’m offering a massive discount on my hypnosis-in-a-box, “Stress Management Program.”  This audio CD normally sells for $37, for this month only, $10.

The world is in transition. Choose the direction of your own mind and body and choices. Because you can.

Another 5-Star Yelp Review – Business Success with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Another Happy Review of Seattle's Best Hypnotherapy and NLP

Another Success Story

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Another happy customer has shared his success story publicly. Anthony Z. of Bellingham, WA gave me a 5-star review on Yelp for my business, Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.   He came in for confidence and business success. Here’s what he says:

“Connie was referred to me by a coworker that had a crippling anxiety. She got immediate relief.  I was in need of help with limiting beliefs that were crippling my career. The idea of lengthy and expensive traditional counseling frankly created more anxiety. The problem is that I didn’t have the time or desire for that approach.

I am in a very competitive field requiring the ability to think quickly on your feet.  I had three sessions with Connie and the results were immediate and long lasting.

I am presently enjoying self confidence that has translated into a promotion and that has had a great impact on my income.  In terms of cost. I could not afford to not see her. It was a bargain.

My confidence, focus, creativity with the ability to have it manifest immediately in my performance frankly, surprised me. The only regret I have is that I did not meet Connie earlier. The process is simple, quick and fun.

I’ve referred two of my friends, Both enjoying similar results.

If you struggle with anxiety, confidence or any sales related challenges, do yourself a favor.” — Anthony Z., Bellingham, WA.

Yay, for success. That’s what it’s all about.  Win, win.  When my clients become more powerful and achieve their goals, they share the word, so I win, too.  Thank you, Anthony.  Here’s to more and more and more and more and more business success for you.

I do love my work.  It’s my passion, and my art.  And that’s what makes me different (and better) than my competitors.  Passion, and an endless quest for excellence.  Meet me and judge for yourself.  I do offer a free in person consult.

PS:  Happy November!  It’s officially “Holiday Season.”
