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

Best Hypnosis in Seattle Area Mindworks HypnosisHi, Hypnosis Friends!

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

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

Here’s her report:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Office Photos – Through the Prismatic Eye

The Trance Chair

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

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

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

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

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

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


View out the window. LOVE.


The Altar to Happy.


Dream. Imagine. Relax.


Hypnosis Books. Never stop learning.


Dedicated to Excellence Wall


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

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

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

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

End stress responses with skilled hypnosis & NLP.

End stress responses with skilled hypnosis & NLP.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Why, Why, WHY, is the Wall Painted Green?

“Why” is not useful information.

Hello, Hypnosis-Friends!

Michael and I often are called upon to explain NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming and hypnosis to people who don’t really know what those things are.  They have murky and mistaken ideas, sometimes fueled by “Hollyweird” and sometimes fueled by our culture’s seeming fondness for ridiculous beliefs like “change is difficult and slow.”

No, it’s not.  Change is instant.  The build up to the decision to change might be slow.  Change itself is FAST.  And easy, especially with the tools I have up my sleeve.

Here’s one of the most prevalent false ideas I encounter.  People think they have to know “why” a problem exists in order to change it.  WRONG!  That’s an idea created and endorsed by “talk therapists” (nothing like what I do) who want to milk a client for repeated sessions continuing over months and years sometimes decades with little to no progress.  My work is fast.  As in, hours to positive changes.  Let me repeat that.  Not years, HOURS.  Sometimes, minutes.  🙂

Hypnosis and NLP are what are known as “brief therapies.”  And it’s not talk therapy, it’s not about the “why?”  We figure out “how” you do it (it being a problem) and change that, so you don’t do it.  Easy!

Color your life the way you want with hypnosis.Michael has created a lovely metaphor to explain this idea of NLP vs. Talk Therapies.  Imagine you’ve bought a new home.  (I just did!)  Imagine one of the rooms is painted a hideous color –a foul yellowy-green.  Yick!!  Ok, you now own this home.  The bedroom is painted green.  You hate the color.  You want it to be different.  You’ve decided you want it to be blue.  What do you do?

Do you sit and wring your hands endlessly and cry “I don’t understand!” and speculate on WHY is that wall green?  “Why, why, why?”  What were they thinking?  What is the cause of that choice?  Or do you simply get out the bucket of blue paint and the brush and get to work making it different?  With NLP, we get out the bucket of paint.  And we paint, making the room what we want it to be.

Now, the wall is successfully blue.  Do we care WHY it was ever green?  No.  Not me.  I don’t care!  It’s not green any more.  And we never even needed to figure out why.  If we HAD figured out why, would that spontaneously turn the wall blue?  Of course not.  Knowing why doesn’t fix things.  Fixing things fixes things.

As I expressed it to a potential client.  This is not a quest for understanding.  This a quest for change.  As in NOW.  NLP and hypnosis are movement, not chitchat.  I lay down the ground rules for my clients…if you stray into story about why, that is not useful information to my work, and I’ll stop you.  And I do.  This isn’t talk therapy.  This is life change.  Now.

Learn more about what I do here: and  If you’re tired of talk and want to DO something to make your life better, then you’re ready for my brand of therapy.  Hypnosis and NLP.  The change-makers.

Warm Regards,

“Pop”ping a bad habit: Goodbye Soft Drink Addiction

Pop your bad habits, with hypnosis.

Another success story.  K.O. of Renton wanted some help with weight management.  One of her habits was sugar consumption, in the form of soda.  Lots of it.  She was ready for healthy changes.

We did some work.  Yesterday she reported to me:  two weeks and she hasn’t touched it.  No pop!  None.  No desires for it, either.  She’s choosing water instead.

Healthy choice!  Yay, K.O.  (Knockout!!)  Knocking out the undesired habits.

“I’m thrilled!”  she said, yesterday.  Me, too, K.O, I’m happy for your success.

Are there any habits you’d like to pop?  It’s very very doable.  🙂

Teaching Tonight – Self Hypnosis @ Bellevue College

Room for one more, honey!  (Line from a Twilight Zone episode I particularly enjoy!)  🙂

Hi, Hypno-Friends!

I’m teaching another course at Bellevue College.  This one is  “Building Confidence and Self Esteem Through Self Hypnosis.”  It’s 2 nights, tonight (Feb 15) and also Feb 22.  Six hours total.  In those magical 6 hours, I’ll be presenting an experiential hypnotic extravaganza of learning.

I hypnotize the group en masse, and set a trigger for the students to return to “instant trance” anytime they like.  With this tool, we can focus our own minds on positive changes–and the unconscious mind is the part of your brain that makes things happen.  It’s the seat of our emotions and behaviors.

In the class, we practice hypnosis.  We learn the truth about hypnosis.  We learn how to craft what’s known as a “well-formed goal.”  (You have to know what you want in order to get it!)

It’s fun.  It’s hypnotic.  It’s inexpensive.  This class through Bellevue College is only $89.  What a deal!  If you want in, there’s still room as of this writing:

Hypnosis.  It’s everywhere you want to be.  Including Bellevue College tonight.  Join me if you can, you must sign up through BC.  I know you’ll be glad you did!

Hi, Hypnosis Friends & Enthusiasts & Interested Parties!

I began my latest go-round of the self hypnosis course at Bellevue College last night.  GOOD turnout!  There were a few people who had experienced hypnosis before and a majority who had not.

It’s fun.  It’s my pleasure to introduce people to what I love.  What I appreciate.  What I know to be massive power for positive changes:  Hypnosis.

I brought the group into a nice trance and set an “anchor” for rehypnosis–that they control.  In their own time and their own space and for their own well-formed goals.  I asked the group what their first experience of hypnosis was like.

There was a young girl in my class.  Her answer:  “Elation!”  Yes, that’s precisely what hypnosis feels like.  Another girl said it feels similar to the state she goes into while praying, it feels like “prayer.”  Yes, that’s what hypnosis feels like.   One girl said her body felt “heavy.”  Yes, that’s what hypnosis feels like.  A man (who seemed disappointed–who doesn’t YET understand the power of the state) said it simply feels like “Relaxing.”  Yes, that’s what hypnosis feels like.  My personal sense of hypnosis is a heightened focus accompanied with a profound sense of control and well-being.  That’s what hypnosis feels like.

It’s a very individual experience.  Bottom line:  it feels GOOD!  But more than that, it does good.  For your life.  This isn’t zen, like meditation, where attaining the state is the goal.  No.  It’s USING the state to stimulate your mind to create change that’s desired and useful.  That’s hypnotherapy.  And that’s self hypnosis as well.

The class is going well.  There’s a second evening of fun and adventure and experience and learning ahead for this group.  Makes me happy!  🙂

Warm Regards,

Mindworks Hypnosis for Weight Loss Success – the Evidence Mounts!!

Positive Changes with Mindworks Hypnosis and NLP.

You go, Girl!!

Hi, Hypno-Friends.  Take a look at Nicole and her transformation in process.  Isn’t she beautiful??  And read what she has to say about her experience with Mindworks Hypnosis and NLP to help her attain her goals.  In short, hypnosis works! 

Caveat, when shopping for your life change, you need to find a skilled hypnotist, one who has some creativity and inspiration, as well as creative “power tools”  like Neuro-Linguistic Programming.  Hypnosis is not only a science, it is an art.  My mother was an artist.  And so am I.  🙂   Judge some of my work for yourself. 

Here’s what Nicole says about her tranformation:

I’ve worked with Connie on a couple different occasions, and she has changed my life completely.  I went to her for my lack of energy and enthusiasm for working out and losing weight. I’ve lost 50lbs and am now 10lbs from my goal!  

“I love hypnosis…I feel a foot taller.  I feel thinner.  I feel lighter.  I feel like a superstar!…Go see Connie!  She’s magical!

If you would like to begin some similar life changes for yourself, that beginning is as near as your telephone.  Call me.  Connie (425) 564-8608.  Also, more information on my weight loss services is available here:

Stage Hypnosis – That’s Entertainment!

How many of you have ever seen a stage hypnosis show?  Did you wonder (as I did my first time experiencing hypnosis, which happened to be while watching a hypnosis show at the Puyallup Fair):  “What IS this???”  It’s called “stage hypnosis.”  It’s a show, or demonstration, for entertainment purposes, of the power of the human mind.  It’s fun.  Laughs.  Humor.  Amusement.  Amazement.  Did you ask yourself (as I did):  “Is it REAL??”

Yes!  It’s real!  These participants in the hypnosis are actually experiencing new realities.   For example, these new realities may involve differences in sensation.  As a hypnotic subject in a stage show, you may feel hot while imagining a warm beach, even though the room may be perfectly comfortable temperature.  You may experience differences in reality, like speaking a foreign language you have never learned.  Even Martian!  Differences in other sense experiences of the world, an onion may taste like an apple.  Differences in your identity.  You may begin singing and dancing believing yourself to be Elvis Presley.  What IS this?  It’s a freedom of expression and inner creativity.  In some cases, simply a license to act goofy.  How is the hypnotist MAKING the people do that?  They’re not.  The participants want to–they are volunteers!  It’s NOT mind control.

What does this have to do with hypnotherapy—the application of hypnosis to achieve positive changes in behavior and feeling and thinking?  It’s the same power of the mind.  The same power of the mind to create new realities.  Only, the changes are desired and useful, not silly, and good hypnotherapists make them stick.  Hypnosis.  It’s a GOOD thing!

Michael and I were in Las Vegas this past weekend, and we went to a stage hypnosis show.  And we enjoyed it!  The ones in Vegas tend to be adult humor, the ones you might see at the fair are family-oriented humor.  We love stage hypnosis.  In fact, we’ve both been trained professionally in stage hypnosis, as well as our other trainings.  In fact, we’ve both performed stage hypnosis–birthday parties and the like.  An understanding of the mind is useful, and all new information gathered is useful.  Learning stage hypnosis has made me a better hypnotist, adding to my skill set.

Some people think stage hypnosis is “bad” or less valuable.  Nope!!  Not at all.  It’s for a different purpose.  Laughter.  And it meets that well.  That’s entertainment!

Hypnotherapy is for life change.  Your positive changes in behaviors, thoughts, feelings to improve your quality and experience of your time on planet earth.  Stage hypnosis and hypnotherapy:  same animal, different saddle.

Fear is Gone and the Extra Pounds are Going.

Hi, Hypno-Friends.

Hypnosis is good for so many things, here’s an abbreviated list:

  • agoraphobia
  • anxiety/anxiety state
  • confidence boosting
  • depression
  • embarrassment
  • emotional pain/guilt
  • exam nerves
  • fear of flying
  • insomnia
  • interview nerves
  • migraine
  • motivation
  • memory and learning
  • nail and finger biting
  • nervous problems
  • nightmares
  • panic state, panic attacks
  • pain control
  • performance anxiety
  • phobias (all kinds)
  • public speaking
  • relationship problems
  • shyness
  • smoking
  • social anxiety
  • sports performance
  • stage fright
  • stress and related problems
  • weight loss

Sometimes a client will ask for my help with more than one issue.  One nice thing about how easy change is, it builds on itself.  Change one thing for the better and other positive changes begin rolling.  Here is a testimonial/business review I received today:

“I cannot thank Connie enough for the amazing Life Changing experience! I have sufferred from both a fear of heights and an ongoing, 50 year weight management problem. I have paid thousands of dollars to “talk” therapists, and emerged with some idea of why I had these problems, but NO idea of how to utilize that knowledge. In 3 sessions with Connie, who was extremely sensitive to my issues, I can now proudly say “Bring on your heights” and I have been losing between 15 and 20 effortless, happy pounds a month. My Life has totally changed for the better. Folks don’t even recognize me from the back! She is a REAL LIVE miracle worker. GG”


I love success stories.  Is it time for yours to begin?

Wam Regards,

Connie Brannan, CHt.

“I don’t crave ice cream at all now. I am in shock!!!”

Hi, Hypno Friends!

I received some more feedback today, another happy testimonial from another happy client.  She had come in for help with weight loss.   Here’s what she had to say about her ice cream and chocolate cravings after experiencing a single session of Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy with me:

“I don’t crave ice cream at all now!  Or chocolate.  I am in shock!!!”  She goes on to explain how people around her are noticing the positive difference in her.  “I’m smiling all the time.  People think that I am in love!  But I am not!  Absolutely not in love, I just feel GREAT.  I believe that it’s the hypnosis!!” Saliha B., Issaquah, WA.

She’s right!  What I’m hoping people can learn from this is that hypnosis helps.  Not just in re-shaping and sculpting the body, but in changing your life.  When the positive changes start rolling, it affects everything, reaches fingers into everything.  It’s about changing your very experience of life, not only improving how you look, but improving how you feel, and how you think, and what you do all at the same time.  Improving your outlook, your energy, your confidence.  Your healthy and happy.  All good.

Saliha IS in love, by the way.  With herself.  That’s the difference.  When you feel good about yourself, you make better choices. We custom blended a new feeling for her, a mixture of confident, happy, optimistic and healthy.  Feeling that way changed everything for her.

Do you want a taste of happy like Saliha?  It’s so much more palatable than chocolate.  Hypnosis works for weight management.  Call me.  Connie:  (425) 564-8608.

And, notice the amazingly low, low cost of just $39 for the evening’s trance experience. Bellevue College set that price, not me. I think what I’m offering is beyond price. Judge for yourself. Join me. The sign up link (you must sign up through Bellevue College) is here:

Come one and come all (class size limit 20) for this unique experience. It just may change your life.

It’s Self-Reinforcing

There are a lot of myths and misunderstandings about hypnosis out there, there being the minds of people.  It’s my job as a professional to set straight what I can.  The truth about hypnosis.  Yesterday I realized a new originating source of those misunderstandings – another local hypnosis provider.  They’re giving out misinformation to their clients.

They’re selling the idea that hypnosis is WORK, something the client has to do involving their thinking/conscious mind.  And do again, and do again.  They’re telling them they have to consciously remember, and plan and make time to DO something on a continuing basis for the hypnosis to be effective.  No!  Absolutely no.  A good hypnotist makes the change-work self-reinforcing.  I sure do.

I had a spider phobia for 30 years.  A phobia IS a type of hypnosis.  In a single experience, I hypnotized myself into believing that that tiny little insect was immediately life-threatening.  And my body would react.  I didn’t have to DO anything to keep that pattern running inside me for 30 years.  I didn’t have to remember to listen to a recorded tape every evening reminding me to remember to be afraid.   How unnecessary would that be?  VERY.

Patterns run in us until they are replaced by a new pattern.  Hypnosis/NLP installs a new pattern.  The new pattern runs.  And runs.  And runs.

Hypnosis changes the way you ARE in the world.  The way you live and breathe.  These changes are positive, healthy, and seamless.  They are inside of a person.  When done well, the change work feels natural and it fits with a person’s entire life.  The less your conscious, thinking mind gets involved in this process, the better.  You just find yourself thinking differently, feeling different, and doing different behaviors–all these congruent with your goals.

I’m not going to give you conscious-mind busy work to do and pretend that that makes the hypnosis “stick” better.  That idea does hypnosis a terrible disservice.

New Office!

Hi, Hypno Friends.

Some people like new and exciting adventures, and some people like familiarity in events–lucky for me, I like both.  I’m getting both.

Heavy on the “new” actually.  I got some new trainings under my belt.  Florida.  July.  FANTASTIC experience.    The sameness was experiencing again my favorite teacher, Dr. Richard Bandler.  And also new but not so exciting, my primary/business computer crashed a week or two ago.  Died.  At least it was quick, no suffering.  Dead as a doornail.  I’m still reconstructing the missing data since my last system backup in June.  So, I have a new computer.  Which is a good new!  🙂 Fancy.  A TERRABYTE of space.  I remember 65 megabyte computer hard drives.  This is better.

I also have a new office.  Best “new” of all.   Like my computer, it’s also more space than before!  It’s a beautiful, larger, quieter, more private space.  Absolutely perfect.  I’m going to plaster pics and announcements of the “new digs” on the website proper when I get my programs back re-installed to do so.  It’s not quite all set up yet, or “dolled up” as my grandmother would say, but it’s lookin’ good!

Here are a few pics:


I'm in Alderwood #103

I'm in Alderwood #103

It’s in the Bellefield Office Park right off of I405 on exit 12.  It’s a giant wetlands/greenbelt area, with 15 buildings or so on the property.  WOODSY.  I’m in the Alderwood Building.  #103.

I’m so excited!  The clients who’ve been in within the past couple days since we’ve been re-open for business all say:  VERY NICE!  It is.  🙂

The sameness here is a lot of my same touches:  my art, my desk, my books, my trance chair, my certificates on the wall, my plant.  I bought a plant at my last other world job before I had this joy filled career, and it was a tiny thing.  Now it’s huge, and has been repotted several times.  Just like me, it’s growing–in a good way.

Warm Regards,
