What is NLP? It’s “Hypnosis on Steroids!”

Neuro Linguistic Programming
Neuro Linguistic Programming

Hi, Hypnosis Friends & Enthusiasts!

People come to my Bellevue hypnosis office because they want something different.  Something different to do, or something different NOT to do.  To get over negative emotions, to create a desired outcome, success, of all varieties.   NLP, Neuro Linguistic Programming, is my number one go-to tool to help.

After I explain hypnosis and hypnotherapy, I’m often asked:  “What IS NLP?”  Here’s a video where I explain:

As I say in the description of this video on my Youtube channel: “This methodology and mindset helps us take control of our experience of life! How we feel, how we think, what we DO…it’s all movable furniture and we, each of us, is the movin’ man! We can get the life we want.”

A hypnotherapy session in my office is really two sessions in one, in that it also includes a full NLP session as well as traditional hypnosis.  I call what I do “Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy™.”  What I do is very different from other therapies and even from other hypnotherapists.  🙂  The approach is different from other therapies in that it is one of empowerment.  NLP is my favorite thing, as well as my expertise. It’s the difference which makes the difference.

What is NLP?  Another tool for unconscious communication.  It’s been called “hypnosis on steroids.”  That’s because it works so amazingly well and fast when the practitioner is skilled and creative.  I am a Licensed Trainer of NLP ® through the Society of NLP ™ which is a source of great pride for me.  There are only a few dozen such trainers in the entirety of the US, licensed through Dr. Richard Bandler, the co-originator of NLP.  My husband, Michael,  (also one of those Licensed Trainers of NLP ® ) and I operate a Licensed Private Career School here in Washington State, Mindworks NLP, and we teach and offer NLP certifications.  NLP is cool.  NLP is fun.  NLP is amazing.  My students get so excited by it that they have been known to start chanting in class:  “NLP!  NLP!  NLP!”

It’s actually pretty rare that a Licensed Trainer ® is also doing one on one client work as well as teaching groups.  I see private clients because this is my passion and my fun.  You can learn more here, anytime, at my client website, and here, my school website. I do hope you will discover the power of NLP at some point in your life. It’s worth knowing.

All the Best,

Find Your Power

Learn from the best.
We learned from the best.

Hi, Hypno-Friends!  I’m sharing a “musing” today.

My teacher, Dr. Richard Bandler, in addition to being mega-uber famous, is a nice guy.  Very nice guy.  After conducting intensive seminars, he also makes time to make himself available for his students.  He’ll answer questions people are too reticent to ask in class, he’ll pose for photographs, and he’ll autograph any of his dozens of published books.  I did all of those things with him, including asking him to sign a copy of one of his books for me, “Frogs Into Princes.”

He kindly did.  He wrote in my book, “Connie, find your power.”

I was and am thrilled.  “Find your power.”  Dr. Bandler gave me a direct suggestion.  Yay!  I’m doing it.  I made a photocopy of that page, cut out that sentence in Dr. Bandler’s distinctive writing and stuck it under my acrylic desk blotter at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.  I look at it every day, and I remember to continue to find my power more and more.

Dr. Bandler IS NLP, he is co-inventor of it, and named it.   What is NLP?  Neuro Linguistic Programming is the study of successful thinking, it is a type of conversational hypnosis that creates positive changes fast faster fastest.  It’s been called “hypnosis on steroids.”  I live it.  I love it!  I use it.  I teach it.   It’s the basis of my personal success, as well as all the positive changes my clients have enjoyed, and the clients of my students as well.

“Find your power.”

I use social media, primarily FaceBook, not as a search engine optimization gimmick (as some local hypnotists do) but because I think it’s fun and a wonderful way to share and connect.   I mentioned on FaceBook about Dr. Bandler’s directive sitting under my desk blotter.   Someone posted in reply criticizing Dr. Bandler–thinking it was a negative comment about me.  “Why?   Is it lost?  That implies you don’t have power.”

If someone says to you “find your keys,” does that imply you don’t have keys?  No, it means you have them and you want to get them in your hand so you can use them to turn on the car and get going!  I think “find your power” means connect with your power, grow your power, and the premise there is, you have power.  I know I do.  I know we all do.

One of the presuppositions of NLP is that we, every one of us, do indeed have infinite resourcefulness and power.  Everything we need is already inside us to create change in ways that we find useful.  NLP, it’s a methodology of continued empowerment.  If you don’t like where you’re at, you choose and do something else!

Thank you, Dr. Bandler.  “Find your power.”  It’s an ongoing joy-filled process, and I’m working on it!

Warm Regards,

NLP Explained – What is Neuro-Linguistic Programming and how will it help me change my life? (Easily!)

Here’s another video! (I’m just a video makin’ machine today!!) 🙂

To experience life change with this methodology:

To learn this life-changing methodology:

NLP is a conversational, high-tech hypnosis…the most powerful change tool on earth.  It’s also been called “hypnosis on steroids.”  Absolutely.  This is the primary thing which has reshaped by body (minus 75+ pounds) and my life.  Do you think I’d have been comfortable and confident enough before NLP to make a video such as the above and chat to the world?  No way, Jose.  Do you think I’d be running my own businesses?  Perhaps, but I doubt as successfully.

NLP is a set of tools for life success.  This is what sets me above other hypnotherapists’ level of success–my NLP.  There are Practitioners of NLP, there are Master Practitioners of NLP, and beyond that level of skill, there are Trainers of NLP.   I’m a Licensed Trainer of NLP ™.  And, when you come to my office, what you’re going to receive is neuro-linguistic hypnotherapy.  In my estimation, the power of this blend and the postive changes achieved through this exceeds anything else I’ve ever heard of or experienced on earth.  I’d love it if you’d let me prove it to you.

Warm Regards,
