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.

Hypnosis Office in Bellevue

It’s turning green out there.  Which I happen to love, as green is my favorite color.  Here is a pic of my inner office space, where the transformations happen.

The hypno-chair is waiting for you!

The hypno-chair is waiting for you!

Abundant life, energy, and freshness. Nice things in a view, and nice things in a life.

Not all hypnotherapists maintain a professional office space, because they’re not successful enough at the work to warrant it.  Not all hypnotherapists that have an office create a peaceful and inviting environment, I’ve seen others that are windowless and bland, shabby even.  You can tell a lot about a person by how they keep their personal and professional spaces.

Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP is a warm place, full of beautiful art (my Mom’s paintings and drawings), color, and positive energy.  You’re welcome to come experience some positive changes in my space, any time!

Warm Regards,

Here’s another photo from in the office.  This is the “Alter to Happy.”  Which is what I want for you, as well.  🙂

Want Versus Need

MotivationHi, Hypno-Friends!

I woke up this morning thinking about motivation.   Have you ever said to yourself:  “I WANT to do this!”?  Did that alone move you to do it?  For the people that come into my Bellevue hypnotherapy office for help in such things as losing weight or quitting smoking, the answer is typically “no.”  They want to.  They haven’t.  (Yet.)

Have you ever said to yourself:  “I NEED to do this!”?  Did that move you more or less to actually accomplish it?

Want vs. need.  Those two words create different feelings inside us, that are often in conflict.  Here is a classic example I hear from my weight loss clients:  I want to sit on the couch, watch TV and eat donuts, however I need to go to the gym and get on the elliptical machine.

Want is desire, an attraction, a pull.  I want that new car.  Need is necessity, and can be a push away from something we don’t want.  I need to do the dishes, or I won’t have any clean ones to eat off of.  Either one alone, want or need, might move us to action.  Or not.

Here’s my insight!  What if we combine these motivations?

How much more likely are you to DO the thing you both want to do and need to do?  What if you wanted to go to the gym as well as needed to?   Would you be sitting on the couch with donuts?  No way, Jose!

A combo of want and need generates massive power for forward action!  You’re moving away from what you don’t want and don’t need and towards what you do want and do need at the same time.  This is something I help people create in themselves through hypnosis and NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming.  I have found it to be very, very useful for helping clients achieve their goals.

The meaning and utility of words is my business.  And because one of my personal goals (NEED and WANT) is to become the best at what I do, I spend every waking minute, including this Sunday morning, musing on the power of words.  If you need or want some changes in your life and they aren’t happening, give us a call.  We’ll get you moving in the right direction.

Warm Regards,

Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP has a new Bellevue Office Space!

We’re loving our new space in the Bellefield Office Park. We are still conveniently located in the heart of the Seattle Metropolitan Area, in Bellevue, right off of I-90 and I-405.  It’s green, it’s fresh, it’s like stepping into a nature reserve of water, trees, ducks, and geese, squirrels, and wild owls.

Check out the pictures.  We are now in the Careage Building, upstairs in Suite #210.

One of the nice things about this property is the abundance of onsite free parking.  You’ll never have a problem or fee there, unlike parking in Downtown Seattle or even Downtown Bellevue.
