Is It The Right Time?

There’s no time like the present, right? Wrong! When you are trying to create change, timing can be the most important aspect to consider. When you want to make change, take a few minutes to think about how your life will be affected by the change. What events do you have coming up? Think about any celebrations or anniversaries as well. Plan to start your change around these things. This is not to say to overthink it. This isn’t an excuse that can be used to put off changing. “I’m going on a cruise in 6 months so I can’t …

Embrace The Fear and Soar Above

I just spent a week away for my graduate program. The thought of leaving home in the middle of the summer without my family was pretty stressful. I hadn’t flown in…well a very long time and I had no idea what to expect. I knew my classmates and professor a little from online video assignments but other than that, I had no clue. I took away so much from the week including 11 new best friends and colleagues but the part I want to share with all of you is the fact that I learned that we are never alone …

You Don’t Need Hypnosis

You don’t need hypnosis. Not really. Not when you are okay with dealing with your pain, your issues, the things that you don’t like about yourself. You don’t need hypnosis if you can’t find an hour a week to take care of yourself. You don’t need hypnosis if you would prefer to buy more stuff instead of paying for lasting change. You don’t need hypnosis if you don’t want to live life to the fullest. Everyday I see people asking for natural ways to solve problems. Everyday I see people complaining about not liking their weight, wishing they had direction …

Incredibles 2 Hypnosis Doesn’t Work That Way

Last night we went to the drive in. We try to go once a summer as a bit of a family tradition. Every summer there is at least one family movie that we are all excited to see and try to pick that as the drive in night. This year, we were so excited that two movies we all really wanted to see were playing back to back. One of the movies we (the adults) had been waiting for or years- Incredibles 2! Picture it, 11:30 at night, starting to get chilly, enjoying the movie with my kids, husband, and …

Irrational Fears and Phobias

Hypnosis can be a wonderful tool to help get over a phobia or irrational fear but it only works when you are ready for it to work.  How do you get ready? Well, that is an interesting question, one I am still trying to work out in my own life. For starters, examine your fear. Is it a real phobia or just a fear? Phobias prevent you from going places, doing certain things, in short they interfere with your life.  If you can honestly say it’s only a fear, well you are one step closer to overcoming it.  A fear …

Pride Month! LGBTQ Hypnosis is All About Love

*edited on 7/27/2018** It is June, which means it is Pride Month! Once again, Tender Empowerment is proud to be an ally for the LGBT community(see original post here).  It seems like it is getting harder for the LGBTQ community with the way things are at the current time and I want to make sure that everyone understands that hypnosis can be a great tool for many struggling right now. I also want to be clear that hypnosis is not a “cure” for homosexulaity.  Hypnosis can help deal with some of the issues that members in the LGBTQ community face …

Why are you holding onto your pain? (or weight or habit?)

Do you suffer from pain due to a past injury? Trying to lose weight or make another change in your life and NOTHING seems to work? What if I told you, it might be because you are holding onto it. Seems a little crazy right? Not at all. We all do it all the time.  The problem is, often the reason we hold onto things is buried so deep that we don’t even realize it.  Obviously this does not work for everyone. There are medical conditions that are very real so PLEASE do not judge anyone, not even yourself.  However, …

Can You Make Me A Billionaire?

Hi, I’m a hypnotherapist.  You can probably imagine some of the crazy comments and questions I hear after I introduce myself.  Mostly I get asked if I will make you bark like a dog, the answer is always “Only if you want me to.”  Last night, someone asked me if I could make them a billionaire through hypnosis.   The answer is sure! Okay, I can’t promise to make anyone rich and as much as I wish it were, hypnosis just isn’t magic.  To become a billionaire it takes hard work, a skill and probably a great business idea.  Unfortunately, hypnosis …

Pay No Attention To The Mind Behind The Curtain

Humans have the power of being conscious creatures.  We have the ability to make our own choices, have the power off free will, and can decide what we want to do.  Every day we make so many decisions and have the freedom to do what we want to do, it’s great right? Actually, our conscious mind is not what we think it is.  We are not as in control as we like to believe.  Think about our conscious mind being the “Great and Powerful Oz” when really it is the man behind the curtain that is in charge. The almighty …

Value Yourself

As a coach, I work a lot with people who need to value themselves more. Sometimes it’s by stopping harmful behaviors that are holding them back. Sometimes it’s a self-esteem issue and other times it comes down to a monetary issue. As a business owner, this is something I have to deal with myself. My rates are probably the lowest in the Lehigh Valley right now. There are people who tell me that I am hurting myself because it looks like I’m not valuing myself as high as I should. Well, I disagree. To begin with, I don’t rent a …
