NLP Training – It’s a Live Experience


Society of Neuro Linguistic Programming

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

“Can I learn NLP online?  Can I get certified through your school online?”  I received this question again this morning as I have before, and I thought it worthy of a blog entry to answer publicly.  The short answer is “No.”  More emphatically, “No way, Jose!”  Online courses can teach you about NLP, but not how to do NLP.

What is NLP?  NLP is a kind of hypnosis, a supercharged, accelerated hypnosis.  As I’ve discussed many times, NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming is my number one office tool. It’s what I use at Mindworks Hypnosis and NLP to help create success of all varieties.  It’s what I teach LIVE at my career school, Mindworks NLP.

Here was my answer to the inquiry today, from someone outside the United States:

“Hi! Thanks for reaching out. My school does not offer online certifications. NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming is a skill set that can only be learned hands on in a live modeling/teaching environment. Online courses can teach you ABOUT NLP, but not how to DO NLP. Our certifications are awarded to people we have personally verified have a skill set, people who will be able to do the work–Licensed Practitioner of NLP® and Licensed Master Practitioner of NLP®.

So, my suggestion is: hightail it to a live training.

Not all NLP is created equal, also. Your best bet is to learn through the creator of NLP, Dr. Richard Bandler or his Licensed Trainers  of NLP® (which I am) through the Society of NLP®. Here’s his website: http://www.purenlp.com. He has Trainers throughout the world.

If a training is not something you can do right now, read any of Dr. Bandler’s books to learn more. I recommend his “Get the Life you Want.” to get started.

NLP is amazing, fascinating, and incredibly powerful. It’s worth your time and energy and money to learn. It’s a methodology of empowerment.  Good luck to you!

The best NLP learning is a live experience, an experiential process involving forming a multitude of base skills such as calibration, rapport management, hypnotic language, and so much more in addition to the “techniques” themselves.  Live practice and informed feedback is essential in this learning.

It’s Fall, Y’all! Fall Into Change at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP — Seattle Area’s Best Hypnotherapy

Now is the time for healthy hypnosis.

Time for hypnosis!

Hello, Hypnosis Friends!

Today is officially the first day of Fall. Yay!  Love it!  This is my favorite season of the year, fresh, and crispy and colorful, especially here in beautiful Seattle–my home town!

Fall is also a metaphor for your mind!  It’s a timely reminder that change is easy, and change is natural.  Look around!  Look at the Seattle autumn color, change is happening everywhere right now.

Fall into change.  Yes!  What if falling into a new lifestyle or new habits was as easy and natural as the changing of the seasons?  As a green leaf turning gold?  As a tree letting go of leaves?   Of the air becoming crisp and clean?   What if change was a natural, and easy process?  Big secret.  It is!

I was watching a movie the other day.  At one point a character is having a life crisis, and runs to her  psychotherapist for direction.  She says:  I know I’ve been coming here 2 times a week for 8 years, but now I need some real help.  Not surprisingly, he does not deliver it, and she ends up solving her own problem.

That is, and is not the hypnotic way.  Solving your own problems, yes.  Taking forever, IF ever, no!  These (hypnosis and NLP, Neuro-Linguistic Programming) are known as brief therapies, we’re talking minutes to hours, not years–and you do solve your own problems.  The premise of my work is that YOU have inside yourself everything you need to change your life for the better, whether it be changing your weight or changing your habits, or improving yourself in any number of ways.  I use hypnosis to help you tap into the power of YOU!

Fall into your own power.  Fall into change.  Let’s do it!

Success Maker Services – Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Success with hypnotherapyHello, Greater Seattle Hypnosis Friends!

There are two kinds of change, and both are wonderful for helping a life to be more in alignment with goals and desires: remedial change and generative change.

Remedial change is characterized by this mindset:  I have a problem, that I want to change.  Something needs “fixing.”  I need to lose weight, for example.  I need to refocus on a healthy lifestyle.  Or, I need to dump this cigarette habit.  Or, I need to get over this irrational fear of getting on the airplane.  There are things you want to start doing, and there are things you want to stop doing.  Change.  This type of change is wonderful.  In the literature, we call this:  self-improvement.

Generative change is somewhat different.  It’s characterized by this mindset:  I’m good, I want more, and I’m capable of it. Generative change is more aptly called:  self-development.  You may already be fantastic at a skill-set. You want more!  You may be a creative person, but you’d like unconscious help to be more creative.  More inspired.  More focused on success.  More motivated.  Or more athletic.

Most of our services work on helping build success in both of these types of change at once.  However, here are some of our services that lend especially well to generative change success and positive outcomes:

* Improve Salesmanship

* Enhance Creativity

* Improve Memory

* Improve Sports Performance

* Improve Study Habits

* Learn Self-Hypnosis

Tweaking and optimizing.  Those words are not just for websites, they are for lives as well.  We’re using such a tiny, infinitesimal part of our brain power.  More is good. Hypnosis unlocks that potential and helps us to be more of what we want for ourselves and that helps us be successful and enjoy life more.  And that’s what it’s all about.  Join me in these brain and life enhancing adventures called hypnosis and NLP.

NLP is the Study of Successful Thinking.

Neuro Linguistic Programming

Neuro Linguistic Programming

Hi, hypnosis friends!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Confidence in a Bottle – Setting an NLP Anchor

NLP control panel of the mind.

Take control of confidence.  Because you can.

Hi, Mind-Powerful!

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

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

The Yanny Laurel Reframe

Is is Yanny or Is it Laurel

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Spinning Dancer

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

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

When is a Belief Like a Dead Rat?

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

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

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

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

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

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

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

What needs doing?  Remove the rat.

So, we did.

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

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

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

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

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

The Power of Your Feeling Mind

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What is NLP? A Simple Video Answer

NLP is the real deal for life change.

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

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

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

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

I’d love to share it with you.

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

Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP for the Best in Seattle hypnotherapy.

Creating new worlds.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

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

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

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

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

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

Wow, as they say!

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

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

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

Visual Montage Describing Hypnosis

Best Seattle Hypnotherapy & NLPHi, Seattle* Hypnosis Friends!

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

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

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

Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP for your New Year's Resolutions

It’s time for hypnosis!

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

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

Society of NLP - Your Guarantee of Quality

Society of NLP – Your Guarantee of Quality

Hi, Hypnosis & NLP Friends!

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

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

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

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

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

–Well-formed goals

–Representational systems

–Eye accessing

–Calibration

–Rapport

–Meta model

–Milton model

–Anchoring

–Reframing

–Several powerful change processes

–And more.

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

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

Sleep Improvement – And So Much More

Perfect sleep, with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Perfect Sleeping, with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Hi, Seattle Hypnosis Friends!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Creative Hypnosis To Quit Smoking With Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Quit Smoking Seattle HypnosisHi, Hypnosis Friends!

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

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

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

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

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

After a Bad Breakup, She Got Her Confidence Back!

Find your success with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Hi, Seattle Hypnosis Friends!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Goodbye to Interview Jitters — Resilient with Hypnosis

Best most effective hypnosis and NLP services.

Personal change & success with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

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

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

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

Here’s her report:

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

Terrific, is right!

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

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

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

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

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

Another Happy Review of Seattle's Best Hypnotherapy and NLP

Another Success Story

Hi, Greater Seattle hypnosis friends!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Proof & Power of Hypnosis & NLP: Client Testimonial

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

“At Cause” Your Life to be Wonderful

Seattle area's best NLP services and hypnosis.Hi, Hypno-Friends!

I’m often asked “What is hypnosis all about?” Here is another answer. It’s about moving yourself from “I can’t.” to “Yes, I can!” It’s empowerment. Here are some thoughts I’ve written up on the empowerment power of hypnosis!

There are unhappy people in the world who say: “I can’t!” and they make excuses. There are people in the world who let their lives be limited. They feel trapped or stuck. “My life sucks.”

On the flip side, there are powerful people in the world who say: “Yes, I can!” And they do. They say: “I’m going for it! I choose how I live.”

Which describes you? And, which would you rather be?

Empowerment. Hypnotherapy and particularly, NLP, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, are about opening up the mind to new, more desired choices and new possibilities. And making them happen.

A problem is really a problem only if you believe it to be. Henry Ford, the famous automaker, had that wonderful saying: “If you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right!” Hypnotherapy is all about “Yes, I can.” The belief controls the actions and outcomes. Hypnotherapy empowers useful beliefs.

In my line of work there is a terminology to describe this empowered vs. unhappy state of mind. It’s called being “at cause” vs. being “at effect.” Being “at cause” means I cause my world to be what I choose it to be. Power. Choice. Control. Being “at effect” means I am a cork bobbing on the ocean, helpless to the seas and currents. “At effect” means no control, feeling like a victim.

An aside: Now, this is funny. My speech to text program heard “at effect” as “a defect.” “Being a defect means you are a cork…” And people actually do get this idea. They think of themselves as having a defect, something defective about them, their mind, their personally. I say no way! What we do and how we live, it’s all a choice. And what’s nice about choice is that we can always choose something new at any time.

It is my belief and also the premise of the work I do that people are infinitely resourceful. They do have choices. What I do is open up more choices for them. It’s so easy to do this. Fear is a choice. Calm is a different choice. Overeating is a choice. Healthy eating is a different choice. Smoking is a choice. Not smoking is a different choice. “At effect” people have no idea of their own ability to choose, they live their life in that victim mentality feeling trapped. It doesn’t have to be that way. While other therapies which activate conscious resourcing offer a very limited utility for change, hypnosis kicks “at effect” out the door.

Here’s an example from my work. I had a client who is a musician. She had a fear and anxiety around solo performances. She had been to other therapists for months who made her examine in infinite detail her life history, her relationship with her parents and the deep, deep, deep, psychological reasons for the existence of her problem. Guess what? That didn’t fix it. She came to me and one session of NLP/hypnotherapy later she is performing without anxiety. It’s a new choice that her mind has chosen. I want calm and confident! Okay let’s do that! (That’s where hypnosis and NLP come in, they can do that!) This change in a person’s thinking, that’s being “at cause.”

If only the world knew how easy it is to be powerful.

I believe everyone is capable of choice. Everyone is capable of making their life better. Everyone is capable of getting the life they want. These tools I use are so fast and fascinating. and they result in a life being “at cause”. That means we make choices that bring us happiness, joy, health, and success of all varieties.

Another benefit of all this, the bridge burns after you cross it. When you become a person “at cause,” the excuses for things not being the way you want them to be dry up. You’re not making excuses anymore, you’re taking action. And creating change and success. Once we see ourselves as powerful and in control of our choices and outcomes, there’s no going back. And that’s wonderful. With the right tools, flipping that switch, power ON, in the mind can happen faster than you think.

Teenage Empowerment – Client Testimonial for Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Greater Seattle Clinical Hypnotherapy NLP ServicesHi, Greater Seattle Hypnosis Friends!

I like working with teenagers. Got a nice message from one young client today:

“I am so grateful for how much you helped me to change my life, decide my future, and grow as a person.” — A. R., Issaquah, WA.

That’s right!

A.R. was in a dark place in her life when she first came in for hypnosis & NLP services. She was making some unhealthy, self destructive choices.  That’s changed now.  New habits are in place.  She glows with life, confidence and positive energy.

I was thinking this morning about how Dr. Bandler’s work in developing Neuro Linguistic Programming (a high tech conversational hypnosis) has touched so many lives in powerful, wonderful ways. He’s the tree of NLP, I’m a branch from it as his Licensed Trainer of NLP ®, and I get to touch so many leaves (lives) through my teaching and client work.

Trees are a beautiful metaphor.  Life and growth and strength.  I think people, including young people, are incredibly powerful–if they only knew how to access and activate that power.  I know how to help do that.  It’s called NLP.  And it’s what I teach students at Mindworks NLP and do with clients at my Bellevue hypnotherapy clinic, Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Featured Hypnosis Success Testimonial

High five for skilled hypnosis and success.

High Five for Skilled Hypnosis and Success.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Weight loss is really a sequence of two goals:  Get that ideal weight.  Then… Stay there. What’s cool is that hypnosis helps you do both.

Here’s a gentleman I helped with self image and weight loss who found himself needing to refocus on his “stay away from sugar” goals.  A quick hypnotic “tuneup” as he called it got him back on track.

“Hello Mind Transforming Wizard! Connie, you’re again amazing. The small tune up was just want I needed. …after a while I just didn’t ever crave sweets and frankly I just ignore them all together. It’s crazy, I just pass them by. Cheers! and here’s to the good life.”  –Brian Dawson, Woodinville, WA

When I work with a person, I set up shortcuts to hypnosis and to change, which makes any future “tuneups” so easy.  Here’s his initial report after working with me:

“Good morning Connie,  thought I would give you a quick update. I feel great, refreshed, and full of life. I really want to thank you for the sessions, it was truly mind changing. You moved me back into my life’s direction. I really don’t get frustrated or angry at myself anymore mainly due to a positive direction in my own self talk. You are an artist of a person’s mind and soul. I am sure that I will utilize you in the future and won’t hesitate to call when the need arises.  Thank you!!!”  –Brian Dawson, Woodinville, WA

Happy man!  Yay!

In my recent article, I explain how effective hypnosis and NLP done right changes your mental outlook first, and then your body second.  Read more here:  Feel Great and Lose Weight.

Find Your Happy Perspective with Seattle’s Best Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Here’s a brief video showing variant states of mind, rage vs. joy:

Life happens, work, bosses, traffic, stress.  We don’t have to let it enrage us. We can choose a balanced and harmonious response to life. It’s called: Happy. Hypnosis is a fabulous tool to create those happy responses. Discover it. Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP is in the Seattle area, and serves all of Western Washington and beyond with the best in Neuro Linguistic Hypnotherapy services.

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.

Connie Brannan, CHt. & Licensed Trainer of NLP (tm) Mindworks Hypnosis

Connie Brannan, CHt. & Licensed Trainer of NLP ™

I’d love to help you Find your Happy and teach you how to hold on to those good feelings!

All the Best,

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?

Another 5-Star Yelp Review of Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Another 5-Star Review on YELP

Read my latest 5-Star Yelp Review

Hi, Greater Seattle Hypnosis Friends!

How do we judge success in the work I do, hypnosis and NLP?  We could measure only behavioral change specifically requested, such as:  I stopped smoking, I say no thank you no to cookies and candy, I’m sleeping better, etc.

Or we could measure success by the intangibles, by the positive change in emotions. A client might notice more confidence, more happiness, more control, more energy, more optimism, more motivation, or all of the above.  In Neuro Linguistic Hypnotherapy ®, better feelings and different behaviors go together.

In my opinion, the biggest impact on life success is feeling differently in our own skin in our own lives. Feeling BETTER.  And those better feelings lead to better decisions in life and then the behavioral changes and improvements of all varieties.  I love it when my clients notice those bigger changes.  Here’s one!  Andrea W. of Bellevue, WA posted a 5-star review of Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP online on YELP:

“I went to Connie to get help with my entire outlook on life and myself. I visited her for 5 sessions including the consultation. She really was pretty fantastic! From the moment I met her she was very kind, non-judgmental, and super focused on my needs. She has been through a ridiculous amount of schooling for NLP and really knows how to speak to your unconscious. We worked on different aspects of my life for each session, and she even taught me how to do self-hypnosis to better myself continuously.

Some of the “games” she does with you and the process she takes you through may seem odd and feel weird at times! But honestly, just keep an open mind and follow her directions throughout her sessions! I have felt SO MUCH better since my sessions with Connie and I would recommend her to ANYONE who is experiencing ANY issue really. She customizes each session to what your desires are, whether it’s weight loss, cigarettes, alcohol, depression, phobias……you name it! She is worth the $$ 🙂 ”  — Andrea W. Bellevue, WA

Yay, for success!  Good job, Andrea!  And she’s exactly right.  Those who “go for it” with me, do find life getting better.  With the open-eyed, interactive hypnosis known as NLP, you have to follow my instructions to the letter.  I explain everything thoroughly and make it easy to understand.  In that way, we get the right messages into the unconscious. Unconscious minds are pure positive energy and will do what we ask–we just have to ask in the right way.  That’s the difference with skilled hypnotherapy and NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming — effective unconscious communications.  🙂

I love happy clients with successful outcomes like Andrea.  I want more of them.

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!

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

A Cat’s Eye View

NLP Eye Accessing CatHere’s a brief video I created tonight. I call it: “A Cat’s Eye View.”

The eyes have it!  Check out this curious cat as he demonstrates for you the NLP eye accessing cues. Eye movement reveals thought patterns. NLP is a conversational hypnosis that teaches us how to communicate effectively and create change in ourselves and others. Mindworks NLP is a Licensed Private Career School in Washington State and Connie & Michael Brannan are Licensed Trainers of NLP®.

NLP, Neuro Linguistic Programming, is a methodology I teach as well as use in my Hypnotherapy practice.  It’s my number one tool, my go to.  NLP is really something super fascinating.  It’s all about the mind and how it works (hence my business name, “Mindworks”) and how we create change.  It’s about effective communications and our mental strategies for success (or failure) for joy (or misery).  We alter the unconscious mind strategies to create more success and more joy.

All the Best,
Connie

Designer Beliefs ™

Mind Functions and HypnosisThought for the day:

“Sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” ― Lewis Carroll

What you believe creates who you are and how you live.  We at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP help you create new beliefs as well as implement those changes that flow from them. We ourselves have a very firmly held belief:  people are infinitely resourceful.  That means, yes, you can!

Whatever outcome it is.  If you believe you can, you will find a way.  Here’s another quotation:  “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.”  Hypnosis pops you into your inner mind to facilitate “finding the way.”  If you need help with “the will” side of the equation, we can help there, too.  We call our process of belief alteration and implementation:  Designer Beliefs™.  Michael and I have developed a process whereby we help you believe what it’s useful and important to believe about yourself and the world.  Such as:

— I can do it!

— I deserve it!

— I’m good enough!

— I’m worthy!

— Change is easy!

— The time is now!

These things are all true about you.  Wouldn’t it be nice to believe them?  REALLY believe them.  And activate change based on them.

Learn more anytime at http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net/faq/ or give us a call at (425) 564-8608 and come on in for a free in person office consultation.

Stressed? Anxious? What if emotions could turn on a dime?

Seattle hypnotherapy clinic Mindworks Hypnosis

Change your thinking, change your mood.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

With hypnosis and NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming, we can program in new responses in any given situation.   The boss is yelling, traffic is congested, your significant other is in a bad mood, the restaurant is out of just the thing you wanted. They call it “situational stress.”  What if, after hypnotherapy…that same situation became situational calm, or situaltional happy, or situational “I can handle it!”  We can do that!

I think this video is cute.  And it demonstrates an important fact.  We can change our emotions on a dime.  FAST!

Cute baby!  She’s crying, looking like a full-blown tantrum is going to ensue.  Then, suddenly, she hears her happy music.  And the dancing begins!  Instant change.  For those of you who think “change is slow and difficult,” watch her face.  We’re talking instant change!

With NLP, and Neuro Linguistic hypnosis therapy, we give  you control, to turn a negative emotion and response into a positive one.  When you choose to do it.  We can also program your mind and life for those responses to become automated in a particular context.  This little girl has been programmed in a natural manner, in a great way.  Music = dancing and happy.  It doesn’t matter what was going on before.

We can take control of these automatic responses.  Goodbye, fear, anxiety, phobic responses, distraction, procrastination, and so on.

Find out more anytime in an in person explanatory meeting.  Call us for a free consultation. No charge, no obligation.  Just an opportunity to learn more, and hear what a professional change worker says about your mind and your untapped abilities to feel more resourceful now.

All the Best,
Connie

Skeptical Transforms into Success

Clinical hypnotherapy in Bellevue Mindworks Hypnosis

Find your happy with Mindworks Hypnosis.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Because of the myths and misunderstandings of hypnosis floating around in the world, some people are skeptical and don’t really understand it’s power.  Until they do.  The proof is in the pudding.  Always.

M.L.J, of Seattle came into Mindworks Hypnosis for NLP services and hypnotherapy for the purpose of anxiety and stress release, both in the work setting and in her personal relationships.  She was skeptical.  At first.  And yet she was open to go for it.  Now she knows something different, and that difference is success in her goal, the absence of stress.

Here’s her short and sweet report after NLP and hypnosis:

“Although I was skeptical at first it really did help. I haven’t felt stressed at all.” —  M.L.J., Seattle, WA

Think about the power of that change.  “I haven’t felt stressed.  AT ALL.”   Good job, M!

When people are caught up in stress, they don’t see the world or themselves clearly.  I helped another gentleman with anxiety just yesterday in Bellevue, and here is what he told me he noticed immediately afterward.

He commented that not only did he feel different (calm, safe, and confident), the world looked different to him. Literally. Colors brighter, more present in the moment and noticing the things around him more. He said he looked at his face in the mirror and that he looked different to himself, more good looking.

Wow!  That’s success.  Now all he has to do is hold onto those good feelings.  And I gave him a tool to do so and taught him how to use it.  That’s NLP — a supercharged, powerful and quick hypnosis.

If only more people knew the truth about hypnosis.  It’s something so positive and so powerful, and so COOL.  And so helpful.

If you’d like a taste of calm, or confident, or any other blend of good feelings, call us.  We are the creators of Designer Feelings™  We’re happy to help.  http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net

Seattle Gray to Sun: Change is Easy

Hi, Seattle lovers everywhere!

Mindworks Hypnosis - Best Greater Seattle Hypnotherapy

Mindworks Hypnosis – Best Greater Seattle Hypnotherapy

Check out this hypnotic time-lapse video I’ve created. It’s a typical Seattle May day…murky, gray, overcast, dark. At first. Then, miraculously, things shift. The clouds blow away, and are replaced with dazzling blue skies and brilliant sunshine. What a beautiful Seattle day. Hypnotic!

And what a great metaphor.  This is the essence of hypnosis and hypnotherapy and NLP. Change. And, as this video shows, change is easy!  Troubles and problems and old habits can “blow away” as though they never even existed.  We don’t need ’em, we can get rid of them.  Easily! That’s the secret and unknown part.  Hypnosis is the tool to make it happen.

Hypnosis and NLP are really user guides for the mind.

I hope you enjoy this amazing video.  I love it, if I do say so myself.  These scenes are three different views of the same day, from atop our own Space Needle – the heart of Seattle. My favorite part is when the shadow of the Space Needle moves and elongates across the city.  We are so privileged to live in the Greater Seattle area, there’s nowhere as beautiful on earth.

All the Best,
Connie

Change your direction any time, with Mindworks Hypnosis.

Change your direction any time, with Mindworks Hypnosis.

Hi, Seattle Hypnosis Friends!

The power of your mind is so incredible!  Here’s a quick and easy demo proving change is easy.

I invite you to check out this brief video. Is the train moving to the left into the tunnel, or to the right, emerging from if? What do you see? Cool!  Now, simply imagine that it’s moving in the opposite direction. And it does!!

Some people call this “freaky.” I call it: “control.”  We control our perceptions of the world with our mind.  And yes, it really is that easy to alter direction.  When your mind makes the leap, you see things in a new way.  And new seeing leads to new thoughts, and new beliefs, and new behaviors.  That’s the purpose of skilled hypnotherapy–assisting you in the new seeing.

I love these type of visual demos.  People start to “get it.”  That what happens between their ears is the real deal, and the real power.  If you’d like to see yourself or life in a new way, and live those changes, we can do that.  My hypnosis clinic services all the Greater Seattle area.  Call me anytime at (425) 564-8608 and we’ll get started!

Connie

Featured Testimonial – Goodbye Anxiety & Depression

Hi, Seattle Hypnosis Friends!

I’ve had a lot of clients over the years, and I’ve helped with every variety of context and situation of desired change from weight loss to anxiety release to help with addictions, to sports improvement, to quitting smoking, and more.  Some clients stick out as memorable, because of their willingness to “go for it” and cooperation, some for their incredible successes.  Karel was both of those things.

Karel shared her thoughts about our work on Google with a 5-star review of Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP:

“Connie Brannan has helped me change the way I think about myself and my life. I saw her primarily for help with weight loss, but I ended up realizing many other positive changes at the same time. I was surprised and so pleased with the lasting results of my sessions: ability to concentrate on the way I wanted to eat, improvement in my personal relationships, and a completely rejuvenated interest in life.

After 20+ years of severe depression, I was amazed to find that I was free of it after just a single session. I am so grateful that I had the good sense to see Connie, and I recommend her services to anyone who wants similar improvements in their life.”  – Karel Creason, Bellevue, WA.

And she wrote to me a few years later, offering this follow-up.

“Hello, Connie, I want to give you an update on the changes in my life since I saw you in February 2012.  I have continued to benefit from my freedom from depression…

I also have been able to handle a number of emotionally difficult situations which, in the past, would have had me reeling. What a great improvement. I no longer become paralyzed with grief, fear, or anger when I learn of family illness, marital problems, self-esteem issues, etc.

These changes are because you told my subconscious what to do to make me live the way I want to. I have always held to your phrase that if something I think or believe isn’t useful in my life, get rid of it. What a concept!

In addition to letting you know how I’m doing myself, I wanted to let you know that I referred 2 of my friends to you, and they both have reported great happiness with what you did for them. ”  — Karel Creason , Bellevue, WA

Yay, Karel.  Keep living your life on your own terms, with joy and a sense of your own power to make life better.

This sentence of Karel’s sums up the power of creative, skilled NLP and hypnosis:  “After 20+ years of severe depression, I was amazed to find that I was free of it after just a single session.”  We ALL have this kind of transformational power residing in our unconscious minds–it’s merely a matter of effective and persuasive communications. That’s what skilled hypnosis is, opening up the door and engaging in effective communications with the unconscious mind, and offering up new choices, stimulating new habits and patterns of living.

Sky high five above the clouds

As I said to Karel and I often say to clients when I’m happy with the shifts happening:  “High five to the unconscious mind!”

All the Best,
Connie

An Extra Piece of Chicken

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

I’ve added another article that I’ve written to our Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP website.  I invite you to check it out, and several other articles I’ve written and share there.  I explain some of the unique tools and processes I utilize in my work for greater client success levels. Because, as we all know, the proof of a service well done is in the pudding.  It’s in my client successes out in the world after going for it with me in my Bellevue hypnosis clinic.  Here’s the article:

Feel Great and Choose New Behaviors.Many years ago, when I worked as an Office Manager for a building services company, I had a great boss.  He taught me a lot about successful business including the concept:  “give them an extra piece of chicken.”  Give your clients more than they expect, give them something above and beyond the services they’ve contracted for.  In addition to office cleaning, he might offer to shampoo carpet for the suite, or have the exterior windows cleaned at no additional charge.

An extra piece of chicken.  I have built that idea into my Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy clinical work as well.  I give clients something extra, beyond what they came if for.  I give them a gift called:   self control.  Or, in other words, control of self.  Control of state of mind and body, control of your responses, control of your experience of LIFE!  I call it:  The keys to the Kingdom.

If you can control how you feel, you control how you will respond and interact in any given moment.  If you can control how you feel, you can control the very thoughts that run in your mind.  You begin to think differently about yourself!    You create new, empowered beliefs.  You move from an “I can’t” mentality to an empowered place called Choice.  Rather than a cork bobbing on the emotional life of the sea, you’re at the wheel, driving the powerboat on a course you set.  Full speed ahead!

And I give this power to clients to take home with them beyond our work in the office.  It’s called an “NLP Anchor.”  Using “Designer Feelings™” we create a desired state of mind and body and belief.  It’s unique for the person, purpose and goals at hand, whether it be as an antidote to anxiety, fear, laziness, smoking, overeating, distraction, etc.  We work to automate the changes inside the mind, so they become the automatic new feeling in the contexts under discussion, and the automatic new thinking and new behaviors.

AND we give ongoing self control, as our extra piece of chicken.

lightswitch onWhat is an anchor?  It’s a physiological stimulus-response we set up in the body/mind.  Think:  light switch.  On!  Activated, It quickly brings about the desired and designed feelings into the body.   How cool is that?  And you control this switch.  That mechanism  can be set up as a touch, or a phrase spoken, an image conjured in the mind, a gesture.  I’ve had clients call it “my calm button,” “my confidence trigger,” my “go for it,” a little girl called it “my happy magic finger trick.,”   It’s not magic, it’s one technique among many in NLP.  And it’s amazingly powerful to all who experience it.

Here’s an example:  a person might come in for hypnosis services to address stress eating.  We create the antidote to stress.  Perhaps it’s a feeling blended of calm, confident, and happy.   We automate new unconscious responses that replace stress and replace stress eating.  Goodbye, stress eating, and goodbye to overweight!  Goal met, happy client!

However, this new feeling, this NLP anchor, has a greater utility than just food.  Perhaps there are other times and places where calm, confident and happy might be useful to our hypothetical client.  Perhaps giving a presentation at work.  Great!  Perhaps for golf excellence.  Great!  With the anchor, a person has control.  And can initiate the good feelings, anytime, anywhere.  Power.  Almost every client that leaves my office is given a custom designed anchor and instructions in how to use and activate!

As I said:  the keys to the Kingdom.  This is beyond price.  Because these anchors last forever, with the proper use.  And I explain the proper use.

NLP done right, it’s beyond awesome.  What’s sad about NLP Neuro-Linguistic Programming is that so few people understand what it truly is, and how to use it–including people who purport to offer it therapeutically, and even those who teach it.  NLP done poorly from a place of only partial understanding may still have some utility, but not much.

Perhaps it’s like the difference between a genuine diamond and a “faux diamonelle.”   There’s high quality “real deal” product and there’s cheaper, inferior, imitation product.  I offer the real deal, as a Licensed Trainer of NLP® through the Society of NLP® — I’m taught and certifed by the originator of NLP, Dr. Richard Bandler.

Feeling is believing, and we’ve developed and trademarked the ultimate great “Designer Feelings™ process.” Designer Feelings™ are available only at our hypnosis clinic, Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.  They activate automatically in the contexts desired, and are forevermore available to you as a source of self control.  Call us at (425) 564-8608 and find out more anytime!

All the Best,
Connie

Albert Einstein Must Have Been a Hypnotist!

Albert Einstein hypnotist

Who knew? Al is expressing here the very idea that makes hypnosis & NLP powerful and successful. And I KNOW he’s right and that those words are true: “Imagination is more powerful than knowledge.”

Here’s an example of how I know:  When I had a spider phobia, I had all the knowledge in the world as to when and where and why and how that fear of spiders got installed in me–it happened one spring day at the elementary bus stop on Mercer Island talking to a girl named Paige. That knowledge did nothing to alleviate the ongoing fear. The extremely unpleasant and inconvenient panic responses in me lasted for decades!!!   Until that amazing and fortuitous day in 2006 when Hypnosis & NLP got rid of my fear.  In about 15 minutes.  Wow.  I’m still living that success now, since skepticism got tossed out the window.  I know how I feel and I know how I’m living. Free from spider fear.  Yay!

These tools called hypnosis & NLP, when wielded skillfully and creatively, help create new worlds–the ones we want for ourselves.  We create them in our minds first, then in the world.  Imagination is key.  And yes, you have it.  It’s called your creative unconscious mind.  We tap into that problem-solving and happy-choosing ability that you have.

Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP has been operating successfully in the Seattle area for 8+ years now–growing our success, one mind at a time. There’s a reason we have over 160 joy-filled testimonials on our website.  We understand the connection between imagination and action.  And we can activate that change in you!  Anytime you like!

Creative Hypnosis for Quitting Smoking!

Quit Smoking Seattle HypnosisHi, Hypnosis Friends!

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

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

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

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

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

All the Best,
Connie

“Anxiety is totally gone!” Pam’s Success with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

I’m always pleased when a client is so happy with my work that he/she agrees to comment publicly on the power of hypnotherapy and NLP done right.  Here’s a video testimonial of success from a recent client, Pam Parsons, of Issaquah, WA.  She reports that anxiety is “Totally gone.”  Yay!

Pam decided to feel differently, and move ahead in life.  She chose to feel:  “calm, confident, worthy, driven, and courageous.”  The tools and techniques I use helped her to do just that.  We create new Designer Feelings™, and replace the unwanted feelings, and automate that process for the future, which we call Designer Beliefs ™.  Powerful stuff! Fabulous stuff.  Life-changing stuff. Pam knows.

A man I met recently asked me a question.  He said, at the end of your life, are you going to be able to say with authority and truth that you lived the life you wanted?  That you mattered, that you made a positive difference in the world, that you loved fully, that you lived fully?  I know my answer is going to be:  YES!  I love helping people, and I’m doing it. I’m living my passion.  I’m also happy that I’m helping other people to have a more wonderful life and be able to answer that question themselves in the affirmative, too.

Getting Creative with NLP

Discover the power of Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Discover the power of Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Today’s entry is written by Michael Brannan, my partner in business and life!  This was part of a larger discussion on an international hypnosis and NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming forum board and I’m sharing it because it has so many wonder elements that explain the work we do.

The topic was breaking “addiction” via adopting a new state of mind–which Michael and I have been helping clients do successfully for years, whether that addiction was drugs, sugar, tobacco, gambling, pornography, etc.  Michael says:

“Certainly, these drugs can alter brain chemistry; but, in fact, your own body is far more capable of changing your brain chemistry faster and more effectively than a drug. Your brain chemistry changes every time you go from thinking a happy thought to thinking an unhappy thought.  Creativity is about going into the right state of mind.

Creativity is almost always the work of the unconscious mind. Insight, inspiration, innovative ways of looking at things are necessarily things that lie outside conscious control. We can, of course, consciously set the stage for the unconscious to engage in creative activity through conscious efforts at problem solving, game playing, looking at things from a different perspective, etc.

Even science is replete with anecdotes of discovery by something just popping into the mind from seemingly unrelated stimulus (witness the discovery of the double helix), or the use of imagination, witness Einstein imagining what it would be like to travel along with a light wave.

I know a hypnosis teacher who thought drugs were an answer to getting more creative faster. It’s not necessary. In a training I once attended, we did the “drug of choice” experiment–going into trance and reproducing the experience of having a drug. It’s safer, and legal, too! 

What state do you want, and how can you tweak it to make it even more of what you want? Change your state and you will change your brain chemistry–no drugs needed.”

This is all true, and I agree with every word that Michael has written here.  Changing your thinking changes your body chemistry, hence the “Neuro” (neurology) in Neuro Linguistic Programming.  Any state of mind and body, including one of “addiction,” can be altered with these tools.  And frequently is, in my office, just about every day.  And when you change your brain chemistry (mood), you change your thinking, and also your behaviors. It’s all linked.

So, when a person feels stuck and says to himself or herself:  “I’m not this (creative), or I’m not this (analytical), or I’m not this (motivated), or I’m not this (powerful)”, well, the truth is, yes, you are!  And Michael and I have the tools to enact it.

8 Years! Happy Anniversary to Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP!

8 Years of Hypotherapy & NLP Excellence.

Happy 8 Magical Years to Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP!

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

This morning Linkedin told me that people were congratulating me on an event — my 8 years work anniversary. It’s nice to remember the things I had forgotten to notice. I began my business, Mindworks Hypnosis, in January, 2007. Eight years! Happy Anniversary to me.

When I discovered the helping power and the absolute creative joy of doing NLP, (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and Hypnotherapy, I quit my job as a Bookkeeper/Office Manager, created this business, and I’ve never looked back. Dozens of additional hypnosis and NLP trainings under the belt, three different offices and thousands of clients later, and I love this work more than ever. This has been the best eight years of my life!

I remember my first paying client, she was a girl named Heather who wanted to stop fingernail biting. She had one session with me, and she was successful. She was also my first testimonial, which is still on my website:, http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net:

“I had a manicure last night…I haven’t had a strong urge to bite my nails and I can’t exactly find the words but it is an amazing feeling. Thanks so much, Connie!” –Heather R., Seattle

When I started this job, I got some really bad business advice:  To pretend I’m good at only one thing.  To market myself as a “specialty.”  To say I’m the hypnosis weight loss specialist.  Or, I’m the hypnosis quit smoking specialist.  I refused then and now to limit the power of what I do.  My expertise is in facilitating change in unconscious strategies for behaviors and beliefs and states of mind and body in any realm of activity whatsoever.

In the eight years, I’ve successfully helped an amazing variety of clients, from weight loss, quit smoking, ending fear and anxieties, all the way to working with  pro and Olympic athletes, clients with addictions (drugs, alcohol, gambling, sugar, and etc.).  Helping kids with study skills, confidence, and self esteem, helping with physical and accelerated healing, helping stroke survivors with mental function, helping erase blocks to business success, improved sleeping, improved memory, improved intimacy, and so on. As we say at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP, if the mind is involved in the activity (which is EVERYTHING), then hypnosis helps.

Lots of people in life are looking to “find their passion.” The thing they love doing and are good at, which utilizes and highlights their strengths.  The thing that they would choose above all other careers.  The thing that makes them smile in the morning, excited and happy to be going to work.  I found mine, and this is it!

All the Best,
Connie

A New Course at Bellevue College – NLP for Dating and Relating

NLP for Dating and Relating

NLP for Dating and Relating

Hi, Hypnosis Friends & Enthusiasts!

The work I do and teach in the Seattle area is hypnosis and NLP, Neuro Linguistic Programming — amazing methodologies for personal development and goal getting, goal achievement. Hypnosis and NLP are applicable and wonderful for so many varieties of change — from weight management to phobia fixes, to behavioral changes such as quit smoking and stop fingernail biting, to sports enhancement to improving relationships and communications, and pretty much any activity where your brain is involved.  (ALL!)

In the realm of that last category, relationships and communications, I am offering a new course at Bellevue College this winter quarter.  It’s called:  NLP for Dating and Relating. NLP has been called “hypnosis on steroids.”

http://www.campusce.net/BC/course/course.aspx?C=13808&pc=1817&mc=1893&sc=

Here’s the course description for NLP for Dating and Relating:

Are you interested in dating or improving relationships with those around you? Effective communication can improve any relationship! You will learn how to build rapport and connect with people in the best way possible, both socially and in business contexts. Create states of mind and body in yourself (such as confidence and joy) that lead to effective communications. NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) is a methodology of effective communications, both on the conscious and unconscious level. Connie Brannan is a Licensed Trainer of NLP ®.

NLP for Dating and Relating
Item: W9509 Connie Brannan
7:00 PM – 9:00 PM North Campus Room: V1021
Sessions: 1 W Address: 14673 NE 29th Place Bellevue, WA 98007
3/18/2015 – 3/18/2015 Fee: $49.00

What is NLP?  I talk about that here:

The course, a one night, 2-hour adventure, is all about building new states in ourselves that enhance communications, confidence, ease, flow of words, sharp-minded, humor, and so on.  It’s also about understanding rapport (positive connections between people) and how to facilitate rapport.–PHYSICALLY.  And verbally.  It’s fun, cool, stuff. And super powerful.

My goal for the course is that people should walk out the door after the class feeling more empowered and positive, with tools to use for improved communications.  I’d love for you to join me!
