What is Hypnosis Useful For? Discover Hypnosis Webinar Excerpt

Seattle hypnotherapy clinic Mindworks Hypnosis

Find your happiness with hypnosis.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Yesterday evening, Michael and I shared some thoughts and insights into how the mind works and hypnosis as a change tool.  We had a lot of fun, it was our first ever Webinar offering online.

It’s cool, and it’s easy for participants, as anyone with internet can join us from their own home or phone.  It was a great learning experience for us, as well, as to the technical necessities of this form of online sharing of info.

In the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing snippets of our presentation from last night.  Here’s one right now, where I answer the question:  “What is hypnosis good for?”  My answer:  anything that involves the mind.  Here’s the video:

Sorry for the uneven sound–we’re still learning the technical side of all this. I hope you can hear my passion and enthusiasm coming through, as well as info.  I’m including a text transcript as well:

“Hello! Connie, again! What has hypnosis been used for? Pretty much anything you can imagine. If your mind is involved, hypnosis can be useful for that. It’s been used clinically for so many different things. The big three: weight loss, quit smoking, and anxiety and stress release. Those are the mainstream kind of things that people come to a hypnotist for.

However, it’s possible to do so much more beyond that. We can stop pain. We can stop bleeding. We can help people to have comfort during oral surgery without anesthesia. Surgical procedures without anesthesia. Through the power of the mind. Accelerated healing. There’s a whole field of hypnosis called hypno-birthing. I don’t partake of that, however many people do. And that is all about preparing the person’s mind for comfortable childbirth.

There’s just so many different uses. And I can tell you a little bit more about some of the clients I’ve had in my office. Really, it’s everyday people with everyday issues.

• People that have had relationship breakups and they want to stop obsessing about their old partner.

• People that play golf. They want to be a better golfer, they just want to score better in their game. Any sport, any sport you can name, hypnosis is a way to focus the mind to access a skill set and automate it!

• Any kind of phobias or fears that are inappropriate for life can be shifted. I have seen every phobia under the sun. Fear of overripe bananas. Fear of record stores. Fear of dinosaurs. Just fear of anything you can imagine. Fear of the wind! Imagine how terrifying that would be, living here in the Pacific Northwest. You see a leaf move, and you go into a panic attack. These things are not resourceful. They’re not useful. And the mind can make those changes very easily.

• I’ve worked with artists. I’ve worked with musicians.

• Kids with test anxiety.

• I’ve helped a stroke survivor regain cognitive function.

• I’ve helped people with memory.

• If you’re into the esoteric explorations, I even did past life recall type work with people where we go backwards in time in their imagination and we replicate and recreate wisdom and learnings from prior lives. Whether you believe it’s an actual thing, a past life, or simply a symbolic representation in the mind, either way it has useful information there. So, sometimes in hypnosis, that’s where we go.

What is hypnosis good for? Really, anything and everything! I have worked with kids to senior citizens for everything. If it’s something that you want to be different in your life, hypnosis is a tool that can help you get that communication into the unconscious. Where it has power.

Because, here’s the bottom line: Your unconscious mind is really super agreeable. It will create for you the things you instruct it to do. It is so agreeable, so accommodating, and so creative in making it happen.

The problem that people run into is they think about the things they don’t want in their life. With hypnosis, we pull them out of that thinking and put them into the other side of the coin. As Albert Einstein said: “You can’t solve a problem with the same thinking that created it.” Or maintains it! What do you want? How do you want life to be different? How do you want to feel? What do you want to think? What behaviors do you want to modify? You can change anything about yourself.

This is so underutilized, hypnosis. I believe and feel that, as time goes on, hypnosis is going to gain, and gain, and gain in credibility. And appreciation. And become mainstream. There are going to be as many hypnotists and hypnosis clinics as there are pedicure and fingernail manicure shops. On every corner, practically. Or dry cleaners. Because hypnosis can help anyone do anything. That’s my belief and I’m sticking with it.” — Connie Brannan, CHt. & Licensed Trainer of NLP®

For more information as to the uses of hypnotherapeutic hypnosis, you can check out my FAQ:  http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net/faq/.  Removing fear, weight loss, quit smoking, stress release, fingernail biting, any behavioral changes, sleep improvement, improved motivation and confidence, enhanced creativity.  And more and more and more.  You name it, hypnosis helps!

I hope you enjoy learning more about hypnosis on my blog here.  We also offer full blown live hypnosis trainings, hands on, face to face experiential courses in Bellevue.  How to hypnotize. How to craft language for maximum unconscious power and change.  Instant inductions.  Silent inductions. Spontaneous hypnosis scripts flowing from your mind and not read from a piece of paper.  We have a four day training coming up.  July 9 – 12, 2015 is our “Discover the Magic Of Hypnosis” hypnotherapy training.  If you’d like to join us, we still have a few seats available.  Info is here:  http://seattlenlptraining.com/learn-hypnosis/

Hypnosis is something wonderful.  Find out more anytime either in my clinical hypnosis practice or my Licensed career school for hypnosis and NLP.

All the Best,

Our Seattle NLP & Seattle Hypnosis Training Dates are Set!

Society of Neuro Linguistic ProgrammingHi, Hypnosis Friends!

I consider myself one lucky person, because I get to pursue my passion–which is hypnosis and a high-tech hypnosis called NLP.  NLP has been aptly described as “The Art & Science of Excellence.”  Yes!

I have two businesses, one is client work and hypnosis services through Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP, in my Bellevue office working one on one with people.  We tweak and install new strategies for success of all varieties, and that’s mightily rewarding work.  I love helping!

The second business is Michael’s and my Washington State Licensed private career school which we operate in the Greater Seattle area, called Mindworks NLP.  We share the teaching duties as we share these amazing tools, both for those looking to become certified professionals and also for those looking to enhance their own power and control over their lives.

We are pleased to announce our next Seattle area training dates.  Space in these live hands on trainings is limited, to assure our personal attention and verification of student skill sets.  In other words, personal guidance and feedback galore, something which was missing in my own original NLP trainings–and I have determined MY students shall have.
