Skilled Hypnosis Services are Alive & Well in the Seattle Area

Better Business Bureau Accredited BusinessHi, Seattle Hypnosis Friends!

Those of you following my hypnosis and NLP blog read frequently my stories of helping, and adventures, and insight doing this work for 10+ years here in Bellevue.  All about my approach — client-centered.  My joy in this power called hypnosis that helps people to get the life they want.  How I’m using it for my own weight management and self development. Here’s the “secret” to my success:  Never stop learning, and growing, and perfecting skill.

I noticed this week that my largest local competitor, called Positive Changes Hypnosis Center is out of business.  The google page for their Bellevue hypnosis location says:  “closed permanently.”  I called their direct office phone number and got a recording saying:  “You have reached a non-working number.”

I know Positive Changes sold lengthy packages of services, and what’s happening to those people mid-service now that they have closed their doors?

If anyone reading this is a prior/current Positive Changes customer and uncertain about how to go forward to their goals, I’d like to reach out to you.  Different, skilled hypnosis services are alive and well in Bellevue.  My company is called Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

My tools are quite different than Positive Changes.  If you check out my reviews, my clients have greater success more quickly.  For less money and less time commitment, also.  How is that possible?  The major difference is my skill set.  I am a Licensed Trainer®  of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (a high-tech hypnosis).  Also, my work is always one on one, and custom-crafted.   Hypnosis is an art form, and no two hypnotists create alike.  Honestly, the difference between unskilled and skilled hypnosis can be as dramatic as a kid with a paint-by-numbers kit, vs. a Renoir.

My passion is greater, too.  I flatter myself that I have found my art.  This is it.  And I love it beyond anything else in my life I have ever learned or done.  That makes a difference, just as intelligence makes a difference.  Experience makes a difference.  Creativity makes a difference.  If you’d like to discover what hypnosis can REALLY do for you, come on in and meet me.  You’ll meet ME, not some high-pressure “evaluator.”  I’m Connie, I’m the hypnotist.

Don’t give up on your goals of using hypnosis for change and success.  Just find a skilled provider to help you.

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.

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.

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.”

Goodbye to Fear of Heights, with Skilled NLP

Best Seattle Area Hypnosis & NLP is Mindworks Hypnosis.

Best Seattle Area Hypnosis & NLP is Mindworks Hypnosis.

Hi, Seattle area Hypnosis Friends!

Here is another short, sweet, and to the point testimonial for Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP. I helped this man with fear of heights.

He reports:

“I stood on a ledge at least 1000-1500 feet above the river and looked down to study a rapid without any fear. I love this stuff. Thanks.” – Dan M., Seattle, WA.

Yay, Dan!  Here’s to overcoming fears and living a more adventurous life.

What people don’t realize (until they do) is that fear is a choice.  An UNconscious choice.  A pattern embedded into the unconscious mind.  It’s not something we can alleviate with thinking via the conscious analytical mind.  We need to work within the unconscious to install a new choice.  And, yes we can!  Calm, confidence, freedom, a sense of adventure.

NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and hypnotherapy, it’s all about new UNconscious choices.  In our work together, called Designer Feelings®, you consciously (awake and aware) indicate your new choices, and we install them via UNconscious communications. That’s our skillset at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

If you’re battling fear, stop it!  Call us for a free consultation and learn how you can improve your life quicker than you imagine.  We help with any fears at all, fear of flying, fear of public speaking, fear of spiders, fear of small tight spaces, fear of open spaces, fear of the wind, fear of dinosaurs, you name it.  It’s all unnecessary, and we can help you to kick it out of your life.  Call us:  425-564-8608.

Office Photos – Through the Prismatic Eye

Hypnosis trance chair Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

The Trance Chair

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

The difference between a hobby-ist hypnotist and professional is many fold.  One difference is the commitment to offering a safe, private environment to do the work.  A private office.  Not a “shared by-the-hour, I’m-not-good-enough-to-afford-my-own-space, fly-by-night” office, a real office.

Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP has a charming office, filled with light and warmth and and color and beautiful pieces of artwork.

When I was first starting out in this work 10 years ago, one hypnotist advised me to have a sterile white room with no distractions as my hypnotism space.  Another said:  No, find a space that makes YOU feel good.  Comfortable, happy.  I chose the latter.  My space brings me joy every time I enter it.  And from a platform of joy, I know I do my best work.

Another hypnotist said to me: don’t spend money on nice furniture, buy something cheap and then throw a blanket over it.  I rejected that idea instantly.  No, I bought lovely quality things that offer a professional appearance as well as comfort–especially what I call “the trance chair, ” a leather recliner that I love, and my clients love.

I’m happy to share some colorful photos of my office, taken today.  These are not ordinary photos, these have been “enhanced” with a prismatic eye.

14445963_10210620010395413_6807940765438077212_n

Connie, ready to rock and roll and help you make success.

My space is even prettier in person. It’s smack dab in the heart of the Bellefield Office Park, a greenbelt area of canals, bridges, walking paths, and buildings tucked into the trees.  They call it a “woodsy walkup.”  Very.

I’m proud of my office.  I’d be happy to share the magic generated in this space anytime.

All the Best,
Connie

Useful Truths – Designer Beliefs®

RapportHi, Hypnosis Friends!

We have a saying at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP about beliefs: they’re like wall paper.  If you like what you have up there, you keep it and enjoy it.  If you grow tired of it or it’s not what you want anymore, you tear it down and put up something new.  Changing it is easy.

People think beliefs are REAL things, tangible in the world like a chair or a book.  No. They are ideas.  And ideas are only real when we believe them to be.  And we can change what we believe at any time, in ways that are useful to us.  We do just that in our office, with our unique and trademarked service:  Designer Beliefs ®.  We custom design and help you adopt useful beliefs.

Henry Ford, the automaker, said it succinctly:  “If you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right!”  Absolutely.  The difference between success and procrastination or apathy is belief.  The difference between taking action and just idle wishing, is belief. Belief moves us.

If a man comes into our office to quit smoking and says:  “I’m a nicotine addict.  I’m a hard core smoker, been doing it for 20 years.  It’s such an addiction that I know I will be smoking forever.  I love smoking, it’s the only thing that helps me relax.”  Is that series of beliefs useful to help him quit smoking?  Hell, no!  Those beliefs hold the smoking habit in place.

What if we could change how he’s thinking?  How about a set of beliefs like:  “I’m in control of what I do.  I can change habits at any time.  Smoking is a useless behavior, and I’m done with it.  I can do this.  I even feel more relaxed without cigarettes.  I deserve to be healthy.”

If he has those new beliefs in place, guess what?  It’s so much easier to quit smoking. They facilitate change.  They’re useful beliefs.

With Designer Beliefs ®, we do just that.  Remove less than useful beliefs, and install new ones.  It’s an open-eyed collaborative affair, built on principles of NLP, Neuro Linguistic Programming.

This trademarked service is unique to Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.  It’s something I’ve developed over the years, working one on one with people.  Our sister service, Designer Feelings ® asks the question:  “How would you rather feel?”  And we create a state of mind and body that leads to success, any success.  With Designer Beliefs ®, we ask:  “What beliefs would be useful and lead to your success?”  And, again, we create them in you.

If you’re ready for REAL life change, and want it quick, come experience Designer Feelings ® and Designer Beliefs ®.  If you want to pussyfoot around change and talk about it rather than DO change, go somewhere else.  Like to a talk therapy, or a counselor.   We’re very different.  Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP is all about success. Yours.

Come learn more anytime.  We do offer a free in office consultation.

Lisa Found Her Calm – Adios to Anxiety with Skilled Hypnotherapy and NLP Services

End stress responses with skilled hypnosis & NLP.

End stress responses with skilled hypnosis & NLP.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Anxiety kills.  It impairs sleep.  It weakens the immune system.  It ages, and stresses the body, and negatively affects health in a myriad of ways.   And it’s something that we can easily change, with skilled hypnosis and NLP.

One of my key services at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP is stress release and stress management.  We give anxiety the old heave ho!  Here is one more recent happy client story. Lisa Hanson, of Seattle, found her calm.  And she likes it!  Here is her report after a few sessions of Neuro Linguistic Hypnotherapy™ in our Bellevue clinic:

“Hi Connie,  I am doing fantastic!!! I am so calm, like all day long. At work, nothing stresses me out and it is so easy to be nice to everyone. The issues that used to push my buttons don’t anymore. It is so easy to ignore the annoying things that happen and just move on with my life.

You are amazing and have improved my quality of life multiple times over.

I do the self hypnosis every night and it is working. I am so thankful for you and our time and can only say I needed to meet you about 45 years ago!!! But, I am really excited for my future!!!!  I have been telling everyone about you!!! Thank you so much!!!”  — Lisa Hanson, Seattle, WA.

Terrific, Lisa!  What’s nice about the work we do is that we automate change to continue long term.  We get the UNconscious mind on board to hold the new, good changes in place.  Unconscious means outside of awareness, which means all this happens back behind the curtain in your mind without you needing to DO anything.  As I tell my clients, we create the changes in office, with fun and fascinating interactive imagination games, as well as the comfort of eye closed hypnosis.  There’s no ongoing “homework,”  You sit back, relax, and you just notice that you begin to feel better.  A LOT better.  Like Lisa. And feeling better helps you to respond differently to life.

We craft these changes together.  You pick how you want your life to be, and we make it happen.  NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) is the highest form of hypnosis, a conversational, collaborative hypnosis, and our number one tool at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.  Learn more anytime!  We do offer a free in person office consultation.

Call us at 425-564-8608.  As Lisa will tell you, it’s a good choice.

More Weight Loss Success – Another Client Story

Another Happy Review of Seattle's Best Hypnotherapy and NLP

Another Success Story

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

I received another happy hypnosis client report this week.  Good changes are rolling for Gina, from Seattle:

“So excited to see you again – I’ve been feeling so great since our last session – I don’t use a scale, but I can tell the way my clothes are fitting that I’m getting slimmer. I happily take the stairs at work between floors every time, I’m eating healthy and just the right amounts – all sorts of good stuff, and feeling great about it!! 🙂 It’s working magnificently!! So – I’m excited to work on my next goal 🙂 ” – -Gina Cornwall., Seattle, WA

Yay, for success.  You go, Girl!

Weight loss is a very complex thing, lots of moving parts that we tweak with hypnosis and NLP:  new food choices  (things to eat more of, things to stay away from), portion control–when to say when, upping motivation to exercise, improving self image, optimizing metabolism, increasing water consumption, and so on…  Of all these needed tweaks the biggest is: tenacity for healthy.  If you’ve got it, we enhance it.  If you don’t have it, we install it.

Tenacity.  Sustained action.  That’s called “doing it.”  The difference between mere desire and success.  For weight loss, and for life!

Weight loss success Connie Brannan.

Making changes!

I know all about successful weight loss, it’s “my thing” as they say.  Living it.  Gina avoids the scale, and that’s OK.  There are other ways to measure success, how clothes fit, energy in daily activities, your face and body in the mirror, and more.  I weigh myself every day nowadays, and my current goal is maintenance. After losing a ton of weight, I want to hold where I’m at.  I’m doing it!  🙂  The numbers on the scale have been pretty consistent for the past couple months.  I’m gearing up for another round of losing more weight, slow, steady, consistent.  I’ve got about another 10 pounds to go.

Tenacity.  One of the “secrets” I’ve developed at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP is how to activate tenacity.  Long term.  Clients get the benefit of this.  Part of the artistry (and effectiveness) of this work is the way a hypnotist creates new things– some do and some don’t.  Some approach this work as a paint-by-numbers affair and read a pre-packaged script at you, and some are true creative artists creating for you from their imagination, life experience, hypnotic skillset, and facility with language.  I’m a word artist.  We paint pictures in the mind with words.  And those pictures become so motivating that life changes for the better.

As they say, the proof is in the pudding.  What results are my clients getting?  Gina is one example.  Here are over 200 more:  http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net/hypnosis-results-testimonials-index/

Learn more anytime about this art form of empowerment called hypnosis.  Weight loss and maintenance is one application of this power. There are so many more.

Goodbye to “Hopeless” – Client Success Testimonial for Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Experience hypnosis and set a goal into your mind.

Experience hypnosis!

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Happy client success stories for the work I do at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP:  that’s what it’s all about.  Here’s another.

This gentleman was suffering from anxiety and several debilitating phobias. He came in for a few sessions and we worked it all!   I worked with him, and he reported immediate improvements, feeling more calm and confident and improved performance.  Improved interactions with others.  In our work, I also gave him a tool to take home, for continued success:  instant self hypnosis.  He sent me the following email this week, and I’m pleased as punch that he’s using the tool:

“I wanted to let you know that just now I had done a successful self hypnosis session on confidence. I had an event earlier today that had me feeling down and filled with anxiety, just now after my 15 minute session am I able to keep calm and positive.

I did as you said, I visualized myself interacting with people and challenges in my past and future in a strong- confident way…

My healing has come a long way in which I feel the momentum of positivism emerging in my mind giving me hope instead of hopelessness like before.” – S. Roth, Tacoma, WA.

Terrific!  That last sentence makes my day!  Positivism instead of hopeless.  This enormous and wonderful change will affect all areas of his life, better health, better interpersonal and business relationships, improved learning, self image, success, and so on.

Keep it rolling, S.  This is a tool you can use forever.

Another 5-Star Google Rating for Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Quit smoking with Seattle area's best and most effective hypnotherapy services.

Another newly minted non-smoker!

Hi, Puget Sound area Hypnosis Friends!

Sometimes success is so amazing that it leaves a person speechless. That has happened to Sri K., of Seattle, WA.

He was a client of mine this summer, and a success story. He’s a newly minted NON-smoker!

He left a review of Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP services recently on my google business page.  No words.  Just a 5-star rating.  The best.  Sri was speechless.  That can happen!

He had been a smoker for exactly 20 years.  He had tried to quit many times, and once he even stopped for a few weeks.  But he came back to smoking.  Until he tried hypnosis & NLP, and found success.

One and done!  One session, and we worked it, and “it” worked.  Goodbye, smoking!  The decades-long smoking habit was kaput, dead, ended.  He has not smoked since our session.  I’d be happy, too.

He didn’t find the words for his google review, but he did give me a big hug and thank you in person.  Good job, Sri.  Continued success in life because you have a wonderful mind, and hypnosis is a tool to help you use it.

Anyone else?  Would you like to focus your mind on a goal and become speechless with amazement and success?  We can do that.

Call me at 425-564-8608 and we’ll set up a free in office consult.  Learn more, and then let’s go for it!

Half the Size: Weight Loss Success Demonstration Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Successful weight loss via hypnosis & NLP.

Half the size!

Hi, Greater Seattle Hypnosis Friends!

It’s show and tell time!  I was cleaning out my closet the other day, and there were BAGS of things to donate.  That’s what happens when you lose weight, things don’t fit anymore.

I’m literally half the size I used to be.  That’s what skilled hypnosis & NLP can do–in this case self hypnosis.  I decided to try on one of my old coats for you all here in this iphone video. A picture is worth a thousand words, as they say.  Here is visual evidence that hypnosis works:

I did it myself, so I know the power of these tools! However, my passion is helping YOU do it.  And yes, you can.

The picture at the front of the video is me, from my heaviest weight.  In the year 2005.  I began using hypnosis in 2006, and have kept a lighter weight for 10 years now.  As I explain it to my clients, there are two goals.  Get that healthy weight.  And then, KEEP it. No yo-yo.  We’re talking long term success.

There’s so much hype and bull-oney and just downright bad ideas in the weight loss “industry.”  Fads, supplements, diets, surgeries and so on.  Here’s what works:  your mind.  Au naturel!  If you don’t know how to focus it yourself, that’s why you come to someone skilled and trained and EXPERIENCED in these matters.  Hypnosis kicks butt on overweight.  I know it’s true.  Look at how the coat doesn’t fit me anymore.

Learn more anytime!  I offer free, confidential in office consultations.

Mow Down Problems! Yes, change can be this fast!

Best Seattle Hypnotherapy & NLP Services.

Go For It!

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

The unconscious mind loves stories, and metaphors.  Symbolic meaning.  So, when I heard this lawn mower going off, at first I was annoyed by the sound.  Then, I thought.  Wait!  This is a story!  It’s about rapid, powerful change.

And in the world of amazing iphones, I captured the moment.

When I was a kid, lawn mowers were these muscle-intensive things you pushed, and the motion rolled the blades.  Vintage, antiquated, and slow.  Mowing the lawn was a big project.  Look at this bad boy moving!  As I said, fast and powerful, and virtually effortless on the part of the operator.

That’s skilled hypnotherapy & NLP as well.  Fast and powerful, and from the user point of view, oh so easy.

If your life has some weeds (limiting beliefs) and unruly tufts of grass growing where you don’t want it (bad habits), we can mow them down.  Let us help!  Here are some examples of tangible results from our Neuro Linguistic Hypnotherapy ® work:

SUCCESS STORIES

Learn more anytime.  We offer a free in-office consultation.  If you’re tired of monkeying around with ridiculous long-term “therapies” that do little to nothing for you, come to the powerhouse.  That’s Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.   Our expertise is unparalleled in the Pacific Northwest. Intelligence and creativity really does make a difference for fast, powerful, lasting change.

Self Hypnosis for Healthy Eating and Weight Loss @ Bellevue College

Lose weight with Seattle's most effective hypnotherapy & NLPHi, Hypnosis Friends and Enthusiasts!

We have an expression in the “biz.”  “All hypnosis is self hypnosis.”  This is true.  It’s a learning state of mind we put ourselves into.  It happens naturally all the time.  And it can happen by design.  That’s our traditional understanding of the words “self hypnosis.”

And there can be triggers for INSTANT hypnosis, like flipping a light switch, from awake to hypnosis.  That’s what I install for students at Bellevue College who take my Self Hypnosis for Healthy Eating and Weight Loss course.  It starts tomorrow, June 1st.

http://www.campusce.net/BC/course/course.aspx?C=13255&mc=1893&pc=1817

Who wants in?  This is an amazing tool.

It’s like the old expression:  “Give a man a fish and he has dinner tonight.  Teach him HOW to fish, and he has an endless supply of dinners.” Self hypnosis is fishing for personal development!

Join me in this marvelous adventure.  I invite you.  It’s two evenings wherein we stuff your mind full of new understandings of what is hypnosis, how does the mind work, how do we create change in ourselves, some language of influence, and this instant trigger for trance is installed. You learn to DO self hypnosis.  You learn and you play.  It’s experiential. Hypnosis happens.

Fun, fun, fun.  That’s my opinion and I’m sticking with it.

“I have no sugar cravings whatsoever! None at all!” Hypnosis Works!

hypnotherapy client shares her success

Taking control of food choices!

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Shelli W., of the Greater Seattle area, worked with Connie recently at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP. She reports here on her healthier choices, no sugar cravings, more water, less stress. Yay, Shelli. The power of mind in action. Here’s what she says:

“It was a VERY good experience! I was astonished how well it works. How you can get into the mind like that and change it around so easily. It’s just amazing to me. I would highly recommend Connie. I think she’s wonderful. She’s easy. She’s very happy, and that makes it an easy, easy session.

I have noticed, and so has my husband, that I am calmer! No heated discussions about anything.

Also, I have no sugar cravings, whatsoever. NONE AT ALL! Which I’m amazed at. I don’t want it!

I’m drinking more water, and I feel better with drinking more water. So, I have to thank Connie for that. It’s pretty amazing.” — Shelli W., Greater Seattle, WA.

Shelli is taking control of her life and habits, activating her healthy goals. You can, too! Contact us at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP to learn more! We do offer a free in office consult. Are you ready for a healthier lifestyle?

What is Hypnosis?

Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP Offers Private Hypnotherapy Sessions in Bellevue, WA.

Discover the Power of Mind!

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

This work is so “old hat” to me that I sometimes forget it’s a new adventure for a lot of people.  And they may not be sure what it is, confused by media misrepresentations of hypnosis.  So, once again, I’d like to explain this cool, accelerated learning state.

So much info is on my Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP website proper, and especially, on my frequently asked questions page.  Here’s another iteration of what I know to be true about this beautiful, powerful thing called hypnosis. Hypnosis is my passion, it’s the most wonderful thing I’ve encountered in my life!

What is hypnosis?  It’s a very pleasant and relaxing experience, it’s a calm and a centered kind of clarity of mind. You’re not asleep and you’re not zonked out, you’re in full control. You’re aware. It’s a kind of hyper awareness, which is inner focused.

What happens in hypnotherapy is that a person connects to their creative mind, their problem-solving mind, their intuitive mind and through creative language, stories, imagery, ideas, and “suggestions,” we direct that mind to desired goals and to create new internal strategies. I believe that people are massively powerful and resourceful in hypnosis. It is very much an accelerated learning state.

Hypnosis is an everyday naturally occurring thing, we slip in and out of this state all the time. My mother was an artist. While she’d be painting at her easel, THAT’s hypnosis. Reading a book, losing yourself in thought, that’s hypnosis. Daydreaming. Going to a movie! Filmmakers are master hypnotists! The experience of being in a movie theater and
caught up in a story (forgetting momentarily about the crunching of popcorn sounds around you and the sticky floors), THAT’s hypnosis.

It’s a narrowing of focus, it’s a suspension of disbelief. In hypnosis, we let the conscious, analytical, critical mind take a mini vacation, and that opens up a doorway to communication with the deeper (more powerful) part of our mind.  The part of us that runs the habits and patterns of behavior and responses.

My clients come out of hypnosis and they say: “Wow! That was amazing.”  Yes, it is.

Learn more anytime on my website.  I have many videos where I talk about “What is hypnosis?” as well.  If you’re interested in private hypnotherapy sessions, I also offer a free in person consultation where I explain much more.  I invite you to take advantage of that!

My personal joy is when my hypnosis and NLP clients achieve their desired changes.  As I explain it to them in our consult, their success is my success.  Win-Win! We go for it, together!

I just got a lovely letter from a prior client updating me on her state of mind and life.  It’s all good.  🙂  Thought I’d share:

“I’ve been reflecting upon all the marvelous ways in which you have helped me. You’ve helped me turn my life around, and I’ll be forever grateful.  I feel so much more confident, empowered and in control, to the point that I’m starting my own business.  I’ve also noticed improved memory, reduced stress, and I’m using the self-hypnosis to hypnotize myself every day.  I’ve realized that once you change your mind, you change your life. Hypnosis is the answer, and I’m using it to work towards my goals.”  A. R., Bellevue, WA

That’s right!  Keep it going, A. R.  Passion and confidence breeds success.  And you’ve got both aplenty.  Plus, smarts.  You decided to use your brain and optimize your life.

Anyone can!  Learn more about your mind and how it works (MINDWORKS — the name of my biz), and how hypnosis and NLP are tools for your success.  We do offer free in person consultations.  Call us and set up yours today.  Our Bellevue hypnosis clinic office’s phone number is 425-564-8608.  Isn’t it time to feel excited by life again?

Confidence for Sale!

hypnosis & NLP Seattle area services and trainings.

Go for it!

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Here’s another happy student testimonial from the school side of our hypnosis business, Mindworks NLP.  Being successful in anything requires a “Yes, I can!” mindset.  We actually install “Yes, I can!” confidence in our students in the course of our hypnosis and NLP trainings.

Jon Komatsu, of Seattle, one of our hypnosis students, has noticed:

“For the first time ever, I feel empowered and able to help others. I have studied alternative healing all my life, but only now feel as if I can actually do something positive for those around me. I have you and Michael to thank for this.”

Part of the problem with learning any trade, and with life in general, is self doubt.  One of the nice things about our school is that every class comes with built in self doubt removal. Our tool is hypnosis.  We USE hypnosis to teach hypnosis and Neuro Linguistic Programming.  This makes us unique from other schools.  What’s the flip side of self doubt:  CONFIDENCE! Consider it a tuition bonus.

And, of course, we offer this mindset to every private client that comes in the door as well. I reject the notion that there can ever be “too much confidence.”  I say the more the merrier.  And we go for it.  Confidence is beautiful, it enhances learning, and life: relationships, business success, healthy choices, and so on.  Come and get it installed, either in a classroom setting, or one on one.  Confidence for sale here:  Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Good bye, self doubt.  Don’t let the door hit you on the tush on the way out!  Hello, “I can do it!”

Learn more anytime.  I offer private client sessions as well as teaching these materials through Mindworks NLP, a State Licensed Career School.

Short and Sweet Hypnosis Client Testimonial

Seattle's best hypnotherapy & NLP services.

I can help!

Hi, Seattle Hypnosis Friends!

One of THE most common fears that I help people erase using my hypnosis and NLP skills is “fear of public speaking.”  It’s right up there, next to spiders and airplane travel.

Claudia, of the Greater Seattle area, came in to Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP to work on public speaking and confidence.  There was stuttering, fear, self doubt, brain freeze, and etc. going on when she was trying to communicate in business settings.

After only one session, she’s already noticing results and successful changes.  Here’s her short and sweet report:

“Hi Connie, I just have to thank you for your work with my mind.  I feel much better. I’ve been more confident and clearer speaking in public, calmer.”  — Claudia Mihkelson, Bothell, WA.

She also told me that she’s noticed that she is more comfortable talking, expressing herself more clearly, and using a more confident voice.  That’s right.  When you change how you feel, you change how you present and how you communicate.  Feeling better leads to speaking better.  We work both sides of that coin! Claudia knows.  She’s coming in for more sessions to pump up her confidence and joy in self even more.  And I’m happy to help!

I myself have made transformations in this arena called “fear of public speaking.”  I went from shy and withdrawn to teacher and also recently took a course on stand up comedy.  I performed my own material in a comedy club last year.  Talk about enlarging boundaries.  Anyone can.  The power of the mind, unleashed through skilled unconscious communications (hypnosis and NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming) is awesome!

Learn more anytime.  I offer private client sessions as well as teaching these materials through Mindworks NLP, a State Licensed Career School.

(Freshly Minted) Hypnotists Speak! Testimonials for the School Side of What We Do

Albert Einstein hypnotistHi, Hypnosis Friends!

Michael and I just finished teaching our 4 day live hypnosis training event, through the school side of our work, Mindworks NLP.   It was a fabulous experience, with lots of fresh minds opened up to the power of words, unconscious creativity and problem-solving ability.  We’ve unleashed newly minted “Certified Hypnotists” for the betterment of the world, and specifically, the Seattle area.

Two of our recent hypnosis students sent us testimonials to our teaching this week. Thought we’d share!  🙂

“Connie and Michael are the best!! They really teach all the important things about hypnosis in a concise and positive way, and give you the tools you need to succeed. They are a pleasure to learn from, and I feel very confident to start my own practice. I can’t thank them enough! Highly recommended!!” – Dawn F., Seattle, WA

“What a grand journey. A mere 4 days, and how very far I have traveled! Studying with Connie and Michael was such a pleasure. Both are fabulous instructors, making learning fun and exciting. And I became a hypnotist! Wow!

Initially just the concept of learning trance induction was overwhelming but, with their combined years of experience and knowledge, technique and practical tips, the Brannans guided me through it all, filling me with confidence along the way. In fact, just one single technique alone made it worth the price of admission for me.

If you have any interest in learning hypnosis, trance induction and accessing the untapped resources of the human mind, Mindworks NLP is definitely the place to be.  Once again, many thanks!” – Jon Komatsu, Seattle, WA

Yay, for new hypnotherapists.  I say, the more the merrier, and yay for more success, joy, and helping in the world.  You might notice a common theme in the comments:  confidence.  We use hypnosis to teach hypnosis, and installing confidence in our students is always on our agenda.  Obviously, we were successful.

If you’re ever of a mind to learn these amazing methodologies of change, hypnosis & NLP, we offer that in addition to one-on-one private sessions of clinical Neuro-Lingustic Hypnotherapy.  Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP is located in Bellevue, WA.  Call us!

She Quit Smoking After “30+ Years of Addiction” — Mindworks Hypnosis Client Testimonial

Another Happy Review on YELP

Read my latest Yelp Review

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Here’s another testimonial to the work we do at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.  Jennifer G, of Federal Way, WA was a recent client of mine.  She posted a review of my services this week on YELP business reviews.  I’m so pleased with her success that I’m sharing her comments here.  She wrote:

“I wish I had known about Connie years ago.  I wish I had known that I could be a non-smoker so painlessly and quickly.   After 30 + years of addiction it’s gone – And I did not suffer in the process!

No urges, no cravings, no overeating to compensate.  I have tried to quit 3 times in the past decade and failed each time – until I went to Connie.  I am in awe of the freedom from smoking and how easy Connie made it for me.

This was so worth it!   I am excited to work with Connie on my fear of flying next!” — Jennifer G, Federal Way, WA.

Confidence!! With Hypnosis

Get happy and successful with NLP and hypnosis!Hi, Seattle area Hypnosis Friends (and beyond):

Another happy hypnosis client report appeared in my email today. Yay!  We LIKE success.  🙂

Kal came in several months ago to our hypnotherapy & NLP clinic in Bellevue.  He wanted to work on confidence. And so we did!

We both automated confidence in times and situations where it would be useful to him, like in business, and like in personal relationships and dating situations.   And, we also gave Kal control of the feeling. To bring it whenever he wanted. Here’s his report:

“Hi Connie; How are you doing? Hope all is well at your end. I wanted to follow up with you and let you know that the NLP session with you has worked out really well for me. My confidence levels have really shot through the roof and I am in a much better state in attracting relationships. Thanks.” Kal, Seattle, WA.

Good job, Kal.  We asked your unconscious mind to keep working it even beyond our sessions, so you can expect more and more confidence in the days and weeks to come.

Happy clients is where it’s at!  Yay for success.  I hope I get an invitation to Kal’s wedding down the road.

Happy is not just a state of mind, it’s a balance of distinct chemical reactions in the brain. Endorphins, oxytocin, and so on are released.  What people don’t realize is that these chemical reactions are under our control.  Your mind is more powerful than any pharmacy or mood altering drug.

Improve Confidence and Kick Self Doubt Out the Door with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Make your own best decisions, call Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Make your own best decisions, call Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Sometimes life feels like random events move us creating random outcomes.  We might doubt our abilities, and hesitate or waffle on decisions–be those decisions large or small. We’re paralyzed with self doubt. Confusion.  Lack of confidence.  Indecisiveness.  Fear.

I think there’s a better way to live.

I found this ridiculous item at “Stupidiotic” store in Las Vegas.  It’s called the “Decision Aider.” For those who can’t decide.  A random magnetic pendulum helps you “decide.”

Do you want to keep waffling on decisions?  The answer is:  “No!”  What would it be like to live with confidence in yourself and your ability to make fast and clear-minded decisions?  That sounds preferable to me!  And guess what?  Hypnosis & NLP is a tool to create that in you.  With my trademarked process called Designer Feelings®, we build your: Unshakable confidence.  Clear thinking.  Quick synthesis of large amounts of information. Optimism.  And energy to go for it!  All blended into one powerhouse state of mind for success.

You know what’s nice about making a decision?  You’re doing something, you’re moving forward.  And that’s always good.  Even the wrong decision is better than the limbo-land of no decision.  Why is it better?  Because you can always take stock, change course, and make new decisions later.  That’s called “control.”

In the world of NLP, we express it as:  “There is no failure, only feedback.”  And that feedback helps us move in the directions we want.  Success, joy, fun, abundance, etc.

If you’d like to improve your confidence and decisiveness, we can help.  Our trademarked process is called Designer Feelings®.  That’s what we do, kick self doubt out the door, and then lock it.  So it can’t get back in.  And you’ll find yourself making the best decisions for your life.  The first one is calling Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.  425-564-8608.

40 Year Smoking Habit Gone After Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Here's the direct scoop from a former smoker.

Here’s the direct scoop from a former smoker.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Another happy camper!  Jennifer, of the Greater Seattle area, came in for hypnosis to quit smoking.  After 40 years, it was time.  And I’m so glad she did.  Here’s her success report after working with me.  In this brief video, she’s direct, emphatic, and is telling it like it is!

I’m so happy for this lovely lady who gets to enjoy a better state of health from now on.

I think one of the things that scares smokers is the idea that they’ll miss the habit.  That something will be nagging at them, and cravings, feeling unsatisfied and stressed, and such.  No way.  That’s not how we do it.  We take care of all that, as part of our Neuro Linguistic Hypnotherapy sessions.  So you feel whole, and complete, WITHOUT CIGARETTES.  That’s skillful hypnosis done right.

Jennifer is serious about her health and her life.  I’m happy with her success.  And I appreciate that she was willing to share her experience working with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP. Yay, Jennifer!  Way to go!

Who’s next?

Power Unleashed. Another 5-Star Review of Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP on Google.

Stop smoking now.

Hypnosis & NLP to quit smoking.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends.

Hypnosis works!  It really does.  I’ve been working repeatedly at explaining this power we have to control our life and outcomes, and I love it when other voices join in to corroborate.

I received another 5-star review of my hypnotherapy and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) services on my Google business listing.  This gentleman was a smoker for the bulk of his life, 50+ years as he described it, and he’s now a nonsmoker.  I say:  better late than never!

He found his power through our work:

“After trying every other known method to quit smoking, went to Connie six weeks ago and have been smoke free since. Highly recommend her.  I came out of her office a non-smoker.  I tried all the conventional methods to quit and nothing worked.  After 50 years of smoking, it’s almost unbelievable that I do not have any desire for a cigarette and know that I will never smoke again.  Thank you Connie, you’re a life saver.”  Robert B., Camano Island, WA

A life was saved, yes!  And he did it.  I show the way, and help facilitate change with my tools, and the person him or herself holds the power to make it happen.  We unleash YOUR power.  Collaboration.  That’s NLP.

Yay for Robert and a greater enjoyment of life and improved health for the rest of his life.

My Weight Loss Success – Feel Great and Lose Weight

Happy with hypnosis Weight Loss Success

Do you like what you see when you look in the mirror?

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Today I want to share a weight loss success story.  There are many, many client success stories on my Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP website of all varieties (over 180 at last count), and many, many weight loss success stories in particular.

This one is different.  This one is me.

I have a lot of new readers to my blog and I’d like to share my story again.  One of the things that makes me different from other hypnotists in the area is my confidence, my absolute knowing that hypnosis works to change anything.  That includes habits, health, energy, body size and shape.  How do I know?  I live that success.

That picture up above is me, taken today.  It’s not vanity to do my “selfies,” it’s how I measure weight loss success.  I don’t get on the scale.  I measure success by how I feel and how I look.  How my clothes fit me.  I’m wearing clothes half the size.  I measure success by how much energy I have, walking, climbing stairs, and so on.  I especially like to compare my face to how I used to look, several years ago, before I started using hypnosis & NLP for weight loss. Here is a pic of my face from 2005:

Overweight is a health concern.

Do I look different to you?

I grew up as a child with weight issues and most of my adult life as well.  I know the ins and outs of unhealthy habits and negative thinking, and what drives changes in weight, both up and down.  I know about diets of all varieties, starvation and otherwise. And because I am so intimately conversant in all this, I can help you!  I KNOW how to lose weight and keep it off for years!  I’m doing it.  And I know how to help you to be successful as well.

How do we do this with Neuro Linguistic Hypnotherapy®?  When I work one on one with my hypnosis weight loss clients, we address everything, including habits, emotions, and beliefs!  We tweak anything and everything that needs changing in you to help you be successful.  We work on:  overeating, food choices, sugar addiction, carbs, emotional eating, stress eating, bored eating, celebration eating, alcohol consumption, speed of eating, mindless eating, not drinking enough water, etc.  We pump up motivation to exercise.  We remove any limiting beliefs that might hinder your success. And, most importantly of all, we improve your self image.  All this changes how you feel, and how you act in the world.

I help you to see yourself as vibrant, happy, and enthused with life, an active person who chooses healthy.  And you become that person.  When I was very young, there was a popular expression:  “what you see is what you get.” Well, it turns out that that is true, as it applies to what you see in your own mind about your own life.

I’ve found the secret to weight loss.  Here it is, in a nutshell.  People think, when I lose weight, then I will have earned the right to feel good and like myself.  I’ll be feeling energetic, proud, confident, sexy, in control, high self esteem, joyous, and so on.

That’s backwards.  It’s not lose weight and feel great.  It’s FEEL GREAT AND LOSE WEIGHT.  In that order.

Once you start feeling better now, with all those good emotions rolling in you (even before you’ve “earned” them), your body begins changing automatically.  With my work, we bring and attach a custom blend of good feelings to your now.  And here comes the weight loss. Patterns shift.  Eating changes.  Easy.  If you check out the many video testimonials of success on my websites, you’ll notice a common theme:  “I feel so good.  And it’s so surprisingly easy to lose weight.”  Those two things are connected, and in the proper order.

I know this is true.  Look at my face.  I’ve done it.  And I am doing it.  One of the big issues people face is regaining weight.  Yo-yo dieting, it’s called.  Well, I’ve been a lighter weight for 10 years now.  Long term!  When you’re focused on healthy and feeling good, that’s just the way it is and how you live.  I help you focus.  And maintain focus.  I give you tools to take home to maintain success long term.

What would you think of a hypnotist who is obese telling you they can help you to lose weight?   If they could, why don’t they do it for themselves?  What would you think of a timid, self-doubt-ridden hypnotist telling you they can increase your confidence?  If they could, why don’t they do it for themselves?  What would you think of a physician who is a chain smoker telling you to lay off the cigarettes?  There’s something called “congruency” and it’s important in life and in business.  I just call it “walking the talk.”

Hypnosis and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming–a high tech conversational hypnosis) are the tools that we work with to get you from A to B.  If A is overweight and B is looking in the mirror and smiling with pleasure and success at the healthier face looking back, I can help.  Let’s do it!

Another Quit Smoking Success Story – Testimonial for Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

No smoking

Skilled NLP & Hypnosis Works to Kick the Butt out of Your Smoking Habit.

Hi, Hypnosis & NLP Readers!

Another happy hypnotherapy stop smoking story.  I love to find these success gems in my email box.  It makes my day.  This Seattle area gentleman had a smoking habit that lasted over FIFTY YEARS!    Wow. Happily, it’s over now.

Yay!  Here’s what Robert B. of Camano Island has to say about our work.

“Hi Connie, Thank you so much for helping me with my 50+ year smoking habit. I have not had a cigarette in almost 6 weeks. Not only do I not have any desire to smoke, I know that I will never again allow cigarettes to control my life.

I tried to quit before. I know now that I was not ready to quit. I started smoking again and figured I was doomed to a life of smoke. When I came to see you just before Christmas of 2015, I was ready. And, as I mentioned, have not had a cigarette in 6 weeks. I can’t thank you enough.” Robert B. Camano Island, WA.

It just goes to show, when you’re ready for change, it happens.  And it’s easy.

When you’re ready, let’s get started!  I can help you quit smoking.  And so many more behavioral changes.  What is a longer life and a better quality of life worth to you?

Why Limiting Beliefs Belong in the Trash Heap

Don't let limiting beliefs imprison your mind.

Don’t let limiting beliefs imprison your mind.

Hi, Hypnosis & NLP Friends!

People often come in to my office for very specific habit and behavioral changes.  “I want to quit smoking!”  “I want to stay away from the sugar!”  And so on.  We can do that. However, in the course of doing that, we do more.  We change larger mind sets and ways of thinking about self and the world by removing limiting beliefs.

What is a limiting belief?  It’s an idea/feeling about self and the world that gets lodged in the brain that limits a person.  It limits their full expression and enjoyment of life.  Examples:  “I’m not good enough.”  “I can’t do it.”  “I’m not worthy.”  “No one could love me.”  “I’m a victim in the world.”  These are not truths about anyone.  These are ideas, that can and should change.

Here’s an analogy.  Imagine getting a rock caught in your shoe.  It makes walking difficult. It hurts!  You COULD continue to walk with it in there, and suffer more.  But why? Why not take your shoe off for a moment, and shake it out!  Put your shoe back on and life is immediately more comfortable.  Suddenly you can go places, and it’s easy.

A person’s limiting beliefs are probably the most nasty, destructive things I encounter in my NLP and hypnotherapy help work.  They negatively impact every aspect of a person’s life, personal and business relationships, financial success, health, learning, and so on! This is precisely why I love helping a person to remove them so much. Limiting beliefs are garbage, and they belong in the trash heap!  That’s an essential part of the work we do–put them there.

We can remove a lifetime of limiting beliefs in a session or two of Neuro Linguistic Hypnotherapy.  Amazing, but true.  These changes are the REAL changes, the power changes.  The behaviorial changes (I lost weight or I quit smoking) are really a lesser deal. They are simply a byproduct of new empowered beliefs.

When you’re ready for change, call me.  In my extensive Q&A with clients, I discover any limiting beliefs–and in the course of our work we get rid of them.  It’s trash day!

Connie

Find your resourcefulness, with Seattle’s best Hypnosis: Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Another client sent me a happy report of positive changes in his life after our work.  Yay! This gentleman was facing some re-certification testing for his work.  Prior attempts to pass the test had been anxiety laden and unsuccessful.  Hypnosis gave him the confidence and focus he needed.  Here is John K’s report:

“I did the re-certification test and completed it fairly easily, had a couple of issues but didn’t get frustrated or angry because of the issues.  At that point I still didn’t connect our sessions with my improved ability or attitude. It wasn’t until the ride home when I was just thinking of how easy it seemed to be and what was different than the last few times I had to do it; then it hit me like a ton of bricks! My success is truly due to our sessions! So the progress on that level has been and is amazing!”  John K., Bellevue, WA

Life is full of testing situations, isn’t it?  If you need help to be all that you an be and thrive in those situations, here’s a place to improve yourself:  Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP, a Bellevue, Washington, hypnotherapy clinic.

Happy Holidays to all my “The Hypnotizer” Readers!

Hypnosis for New Year’s Resolutions

Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP for your New Year's Resolutions

It’s time for hypnosis!

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

In addition to our hypnotherapy and NLP clinical work in the Seattle area, we also teach through our private career school.  And we’ve had some fabulous students over the years. Here is a post for “The Hypnotizer” by a guest blogger, my student, Alexa Ritter.  Alexa is an amazing hypnotist and Licensed Master Practitioner of NLP®

Enjoy Alexa’s words of wisdom!  All the Best, Connie

Hypnosis for New Year’s Resolutions by Alexa Ritter

How many times have you made a New Year’s Resolution?  Maybe 25? 35? 45? 50? 70? And how many times did you stick to your resolution for the entire year? That number, if you are anything like the rest of us, is probably a lot lower.

This is because change can be difficult if one tries to do it through will-power alone.  The main reason why anyone is celebrated or praised for adhering to a New Year’s resolution is because they are fighting an uphill battle and “surviving”.

As Albert Einstein once proclaimed, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.”

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could simply decide to make a change in your life, and then sit back and relax as your wish becomes your mind’s command?

With hypnosis, you don’t even have to try to achieve your goals! The struggle fades away, and the battle is won instantly.  You can say “goodbye” to that miserable year-long process of attempting to create change, and say “hello” to becoming the boss of your own life!

If your boss told you to do something, you would do it without hesitation. Just like your boss is in charge of you at work, your unconscious mind is in charge of how your life works.

However, your unconscious mind isn’t just some old boss – it is you—the manifestation and accumulation of all that you can be, and all the power you have. It is limitless, expansive, creative, and omnipotent, regardless of any preconceived notion of what you can and cannot do.

The reason why you may have struggled to create change in the past is because your conscious, analytical mind stopped you. It came up with all sorts of excuses, limiting beliefs, bad ideas, and temptations. The funny thing is, that whatever change you wanted to make, was more than likely a conscious idea. And by eventually limiting and contradicting itself, your conscious mind really was unresourceful.

Unlike the conscious mind, the unconscious mind is extremely resourceful.  It knows exactly how to make all the changes necessary in order for you to have what you desire. Permanently and easily!

During hypnosis, your unconscious mind is given suggestions, or instructions on what needs to be done. It then finds a healthful and appropriate way to take you there, and demands compliance from your conscious mind. Your conscious mind stops creating the problem, and fully accepts the effective course of action formulated by your unconscious.

So why not make this year different? Why not utilize your unconscious mind to make changes instantly, easily, and permanently?

Not only will you receive praise from your friends and family for sticking to your New Year’s resolutions, you will do it almost effortlessly, and your lasting success will become an inspiration to them. They will want to know your secret!

And hypnosis is the answer!

Goodbye to Fear of Failure and Fear of Rejection – Client Testimonial

Best Seattle Area Hypnotherapy, that's Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Get happy, with hypnosis.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Some people are ready for change and success.  Are you one of them?  Kal, from Seattle, sure was. We had a few sessions, and now he sees himself and the world in a whole new way, a more resourceful way.

Goodbye, fear of failure and fear of rejection–that was ridiculous in the first place, and now it’s gone.  There is nothing standing in the way of his success now.  Yay, for Kal! He’s found more power through our NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and hypnosis change work.

Here’s what Kal reports about his experience with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP:

“Working with Connie one-on-one is the best decision I’ve made to create breakthroughs and lasting change in my life and career.  Before engaging Connie, I was using the approach of rationalization to work around fear of rejection and failure with limited success. However, what made the difference with Connie is that she customizes the NLP techniques for individual goals and objectives, thereby transforming thought patterns to produce lasting change and effective results. Did I mention she is funny, excellent at what she does, and a delight to work with?” ~ Kal, Seattle

Change is easy, with the right tools.

If you’re ready for some new positive energy in your life, we can do that.  If you’re ready to let go of limiting beliefs, we can do that, as well.  The right tools, in the right hands, can work wonders.  Find out for yourself.  Call us and learn more about Neuro Linguistic Hypnotherapy:  425-564-8608.  www.mindworkshypnosis.net

Hypnosis Solves the Problems of Daily Life

Connie Brannan, Licensed Trainer of NLPHi, Hypnosis Friends!

Hot off the presses!  Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP is taking part in a global education campaign to spread the good word on hypnosis.  (That’s what this blog itself has always been about, by the way).  This current campaign is through the NGH, National Guild of Hypnotists, of which I am a proud member.  I’m sharing our press release here.

All the Best, Connie

For Immediate Release

Established in 1950, in Boston, Massachusetts, the National Guild of Hypnotists is the preeminent professional organization for professional hypnotists. Over the years, the NGH has led the profession, receiving recognition in the United States Congressional Record for its accomplishments.

Weight loss success with Seattle's Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Goodbye binge eating.  Goodbye, allure of candies and carbs.  Goodbye, inertia for exercise.  Here’s Judy of Bellevue, Washington.  She’s noticing all manner of changes in her habits and thinking, smarter food choices, and move motivation to get active.  From there comes the more slender body.

Where did these changes come from?  Her powerful unconscious mind. How did she get into the control panel of the mind to create new settings in herself:  Guided skilled NLP and hypnotherapy.  That’s the expertise of Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.  Getting under the hood (so to speak) and adjusting what needs adjusting for optimal life.

If you would like to LOSE weight during this holiday season rather than gain it, we can help.  Call us anytime for a free in office consultation.  425-564-8608.  We are the weight loss experts, not only helping others achieve that success, we are living it ourselves as well.

As a refresher, here’s me, before and after hypnosis.
