Hypnosis: An Antidote to Risky Food Choices

www.mindworkshypnosis.net to end fearHi, Seattle Hypnosis Friends!

I read a scary story today on Yahoo:   “Could French Fries Be Killing You?   An 8-year study conducted by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found a direct linkage between higher death risk and frequency of eating french fries.

Wow!  We all knew junk food is bad for you, but this takes it to a whole new level.

The good news: we can change what and how we eat. Hypnosis and NLP! This is what I’ve done for myself. No french fries or other risky food choices in years. Hypnosis can vanish cravings.  Hypnosis can help you install a focus and ferocious tenacity for healthy.

If you’re in the Seattle area and want help to stop unhealthy eating and live a better, longer life: http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net/hypnosis-results-testimonials-index/weight-loss-hypnosis-seattle/

Let me help!

All the Best,

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.

Guess Who’s a Guest Blogger at Bellevue College Continuing Education

Best Seattle area hypnosis & NLP

Access your creative mind!

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

I was asked to share my expertise in hypnosis by Bellevue College.  Number one, by teaching courses there.  Yes, I do.  (Two courses coming up next month!)  In addition, last week they contacted me to be a contributor on their blog.  To write something for their readers!

Well, those of you who may follow THIS blog know that writing is “my thing.”  I jumped at the opportunity.  It also supports my personal goal  of enlarging the world’s understanding of this so-misunderstood treasure-trove of power called “hypnosis.”

Here’s what I wrote:  Self-Hypnosis: A tool for life success!

Here’s an excerpt:

“Everybody has the ability inside their unconscious mind to create a new world. The one they want! The one that’s joy-filled, successful, happy, free, fun, and all the things people want for themselves. We activate change through this part of our mind.  Hypnosis unlocks positive change and unleashes potential. Why not use ALL of your brain for a change?”

I’m excited to teach these brief courses next month.  If you’d like to find out more, here are the links to Bellevue College Continuing Ed’s website.

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.

Weight Loss Transformation with Hypnosis

Weight loss success Connie Brannan.

Making changes!   Keeping changes!  Connie 2016.

Hi, Hypnosis friends and enthusiasts! And curious parties!

Here is another updated photo I call “face compare.” It’s me and my ongoing weight loss success.

These two photos show my face before hypnosis (circa 2005), and now. The photo on the right was taken yesterday in my office.

When I created my website, Mindworks Hypnosis, in 2007, I used a pic similar to this.  I’m sharing it below. It showed my transformation at the time.

Weight loss success story.

Changes as of 2007.

What does this show? Long term success. 10 years at a lighter weight.

You hear all the time about people going to wild extremes in dieting or adopting a boot camp like workout regimen and dropping a ton of weight.  Think about that show, “The Biggest Loser.”  Where are those “losers” now, a year or two later?  They’ve gained it back!  Those regimens are not natural and cannot be maintained long term.  Hypnosis is something very different.  It creates winners!

It changes YOU so that you automatically do the healthy choices.  It may take longer to get where you want to go, but once you arrive, you get to stay there.  Lifestyle changes. This is a huge and amazing difference between these modalities and a “diet.”

I know whereof I speak.  This is my life.  I’m doing it.  And I can help you do it.  Let’s just say I have the proper understanding and mind set and SKILL set to help you get it done.  “It” being your new healthy body and habits and outlook on life and new positive self image.  This thing called thinner is really something wonderful, more wonderful than any secret twinkie.

Call me and find out more anytime.  Come in, meet me, and have a free consult! My hypnosis clinic is conveniently located south of downtown Bellevue in the lovely Bellefield Office Park, and I’m ready to help!  Take a nature walk along the canal when we’re done talking, it’s a gorgeous park-like setting.

Curvy Barbies and the Insidious Damage of “Fat Acceptance”

Barbie Dolls

New shape and size “Barbies.”

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

The internet is full of interesting things.  Here’s an item that caught my attention.  Mattel toys has created a new line of Barbies for the first time showing different body types, including “curvy.”

On the surface this seems like a nice thing, showing young girls that there is more than one ideal of beauty.  I grew up with this one:

Classic Barbie Doll

Classic Barbie Doll

Barbie was blonde, perfect blue eyes, beautiful face, long eyelashes, pencil thin disproportionately long legs, with a big chest and tiny waist.  This was nothing like my own image in the mirror.  My husband calls her “anorexic Barbie” and noted what a terrible thing if little girls take that look as an ideal of beauty.  Some do.

So, why am I against the idea of curvy Barbies?

I think curvy Barbie is another piece of something I dislike called “fat acceptance.”  My expertise is understanding how the unconscious mind perceives and creates reality, and “fat acceptance” is inherently an unhealthy message.

Carrying excess weight on the body is a definite health risk, to every organ and system of the body.  Ask your physician!  It leads to a host of illnesses and an early death.  And it’s absolutely not a cause for a fatalistic view:  that’s who I am and I’m going to accept it.  NO! I believe fat acceptance comes from a place of hopelessness.  The truth is, losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight is in our control, and actually easy, with the right tools (skilled hypnotherapy and NLP).

Fat is not genetic, it’s a choice.  People that truly love and accept themselves take action to safeguard their health–because they’re worth it!

There are plus size women flaunting their rolls of fat in bikinis and revealing gowns and such. They’re not doing it from a place of healthy self love, they’re doing it from a place of anger and antagonism and “in your face!” That’s my take on it.  They call it “Fat Liberation” (don’t liberate it in front of me).  “Fat Liberation” is hazardous to health.

I personally will always find fat unattractive.  It’s not beautiful.  It never was, and it never will be. Furthermore, It’s more unhealthy than it is unattractive.  Obesity is an epidemic in this country, a massive one.  And it’s not good.  And telling little girls it’s OK to be fat, that is not good, either.  My two cents.

Here’s the bottom line. I think people are powerful. More than they know. I think people have more control than they know. I think people can create any kind of life or body they want for themselves. I think people can learn to feel amazingly good and make good decisions for themselves. And accepting unhealthy ways and habits is never good.

I dislike “smoking acceptance,” also. Clients come in and say: “I’m a smoker.” No, you’re not. It’s something you’re choosing to do, it’s not who you ARE. Fat is not who you are, either. It might be your current state of mind, but that can change in a heartbeat. Learn more here: http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net/hypnosis-results-testimonials-index/weight-loss-hypnosis-seattle/

I believe self love leads to self care.  When you’re ready to experience real self-love, in a body size by design, we can help you do that in a healthy, natural way at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Hypnosis for Weight Loss

Don’t Accept Overweight, Take Control!

All the Best,

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!

Cindi of Kirkland Shares Hypnosis for Weight Loss Success

Seattle hypnosis for weight loss

Another happy Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP client.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

I love it when my hypnosis clients are thrilled with their unfolding lifestyle changes.  That makes me happy as well.  Here’s a commentary of successful changes shared by one of my weight loss hypnosis clients, Cindi, of Kirkland, Washington.  She’s lost five pounds in two weeks without “trying.”

Does skilled hypnotherapy work? Here’s more proof of the pudding.  I’m sharing a brief highlight video, as well as the full transcript of Cindi’s comments, below:

“I’m feeling great! In the last couple of weeks I’ve lost five pounds. And I don’t really feel like I’ve been “trying,” which is great! Here’s what I’m noticing:

• I’ve been waking up in the morning, and I have lots of energy.

• I’m not focused on food, which I think is really awesome for me, because that’s always been a big focus.

• I’m not eating sugar, which is a huge thing! I’ve really seen the differences in that. My skin isn’t breaking out. And I don’t have headaches, and that’s a huge thing. Because I always felt like I had allergies that were food related. I’m starting to eliminate all of that processed sugar stuff.

• No cravings for fast food whatsoever. I can drive by fast food and I’m not getting any of that, which is really great!

• I’m noticing that I’m starting to incorporate healthy foods into my diet more easily, automatically. In the past if I didn’t feel like making dinner, I would be thinking about where can I go to pick up something to eat quick. Now, what I’m doing is going into the fridge: “OK, well, I’ve got some veggies and I could do a stir fry.” and I’m whipping up a meal and I’m satisfied with it!

• Another interesting thing, is that my portions are minimal. Just regular sized portions, and I’m not hungry after I eat. I’m done! I just make my meal and I’m satisfied. And sometimes I’m even making too much food. I put it away and have something for leftovers.

So, it’s been really good! I can definitely tell that there’s a shift happening for me. For sure!

I do recommend Connie. I was one of those people that researched everything to death! I wanted to make sure that this was going to work for me. I came in and I met with Connie and I felt very comfortable. I felt in sync with Connie. And I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t feel comfortable with the person doing this process. Connie made the process really easy and simple.”  — Cindi, Kirkland, WA weight loss client testimonial 6-12-15.

Yay, Cindi!  Good job!  Now all you’ve got to do is keep it going, all the way to your ultimate healthy goals  And I know you can and you are!  What’s nice about hypnosis is that once you enter that focused on success mindset, you’re there!  You’re doing it. Healthy eating even gathers power and momentum, like a snowball rolling down the side of a snow-covered hill.  Yay, for hypnosis!

It’s Time! Hypnosis for your New Year’s Resolutions!

Seattle's Best Hypnotherapy at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Time for Skilled Hypnosis & NLP!

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Did you see the New Year’s fireworks celebration at the Seattle Space Needle?  I did!  It’s officially here, happy 2015!

“It’s time!”

Those are action activating words for me, and I hope for you as well. It’s time.

It’s the first week of January.  Time for assessing the new year ahead and taking stock of healthy goals. It’s time to lose that extra weight you’ve been carrying around.  It’s time to stop buying and smoking those ridiculously expensive and unhealthy cigarettes.

It’s time to dump the fear that’s been holding you back from truly experiencing and enjoying life and connecting with others:  fear of public speaking, fear of flying, fear of rejection…(you fill in the blank).  Fear is often unnecessary, and we can communicate that fact to the mind, on unconscious levels, and choose something different.

People tend to work those New Year’s Resolutions for a a day or two, a week or two, then give up.  You don’t have to go it alone when there is skilled help available.

I love what I do.  I help activate people’s desires and make them real.  My work (hypnosis and NLP Neuro-Linguistic Programming® ) is a joy-maker and a success-maker.  This time of year, people are very in touch with those desires–we call them New Year’s Resolutions.  Let’s make them real.  Call me and I’ll set up a free in person consultation in my office in Bellevue to explain the work I do and how your dreams CAN become reality.  (425) 564-8608.

Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy is more powerful than “traditional” hypnotherapy alone. NLP is a conversational hypnosis that speaks directly to the mind beyond conscious thought, using the currency of life experience:  sights, sounds, smells, taste, emotion, and it’s an amazing success accelerant.  NLP is my prime work tool, as I am and Michael is also, a Licensed Trainer of NLP ® through the originator of NLP. There are only a few dozen of us at that skill & certification level working and teaching NLP in the United States.

Tick.  Tick.  Tick.  Time is moving.  And life is happening.  If you want yours to be different in positive ways that you have resolved, the time is now.

All the Best,
Connie

Change is Easy: Another Video Testimonial of Success for Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Positive Changes, Quick

Positive Changes, Quick

There are so many myths and misunderstandings out and about in the universe.  One that I find particularly WRONG is this:  “change is slow and difficult.”  What if that idea were utter baloney?  What if that were only true for people who don’t have the right tools and training to make change happen fast and easily?

What if it was even worse than mere ignorance keeping people stuck in problem states?  What if the idea “change is difficult” were being actively perpetuated to keep people from living full, successful and empowered lives?  How would drug companies make their billions in profits and how would counselors be able to milk a client for years on end if change were easy?

Change IS easy, with the right tools skillfully wielded.  Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy(tm) is amazingly fast for successful positive changes of all varieties.  Behavioral changes.  Belief changes.  Feeling changes.  Here is another live testimonial of quick success.  Roberta Greenwood of Bellevue, WA had one session with me, and when she came in for her second session a week later, she gave her report:

“I had one session with Connie at Mindworks Hypnosis and what I’ve noticed is I have the ability to make better choices.  I have the ability to NOT go in and buy the cupcakes and the chocolate cake that I normally did.  And I have a belief system that tells me I don’t need that to be happy.   And that is a remarkable change for me.  I’m already feeling the shifts after one session.”

Her words are wonderful, however there is more to her message in her face and voice.  Awe and relief.  Watch:

Yes, one session and noticeable results.  When you’re serious about personal change, you’re not interested in a therapist who will milk you for years.  You want someone like me with a different business model.  My business model is:  be good, be quick, be efficient, help people ASAP to have what they want, and then they will tell their friends and family.  That’s how my business grows.  From success.

Find what works.  Michael and I are Licensed Trainers of NLP ™.  NLP has been rightly called “the magic of instant change.”  When you’re ready for “remarkable change” in your life, like Roberta here, give us a call.

Warm Regards,
Connie
