Life Coaching (with a twist) and What The Heck Is It?

Almost everyone has heard of a life coach, but what does it mean? Is it some trendy thing taking place on the west coast? Something only the very rich and elite use? I bet you have a million questions about life coaching, well, I am here to answer them! Let’s start with the basics. For many years now, humans have realized that they are not always feeling fulfilled, successful or even happy. Many people would go to a therapist and evaluate their lives. They would work on past issues, current feelings and establish some methods to stay on a more …

Hypnosis for happiness is in the news!

A kind of skeptical friend of mine shared this with me yesterday. I told her I have been thinking about doing a happiness workshop for a while. She then asked me if I had statistics to show that hypnosis works for happiness. I did a quick google search and I can find statistics on weight loss and smoking cessation hypnosis for other statistics are harder to find. I can probably look hard and find hypnotherapists who have been in practice for years and who keep track of success rates. I am sure I can find articles and studies showing how …

Mental Health

I just read an article that said mental health is everything! Yes, it really is. Without good mental health your physical health, your relationships, your job, everything can be effected.  So, what is it and how do you get it? For years, many people would seek the help of a therapist.  Years ago this was a bit of a taboo practice, then it became trendy and then  the norm.  So why are so many people still struggling with mental health? The problem is, seeing a therapist is not a fix all for everyone.  Therapists can be amazing for a lot …

Weight Loss for the New Year!

Hypnosis for weight loss! It is a very common use and can be very effective.  However, there are some things you need to know first. Hypnosis is never a magic fix. You can’t come in for a session and then walk out 10 pounds lighter…sorry, if I could do that I would be a millionaire! Also, there are some things that work for some people but not for others. Hypnosis can basically help everyone lose weight  but exactly HOW is what you need to think about. On a hypnotherapists page on a social media site, I saw someone post once …

Quit smoking in 2016! A little reality first….

The holidays are here and New Year’s resolutions are being made. Are you making a resolution to quit smoking? You CAN do it, but it will be hard and you need to be prepared before you start any program. When I first talk to people about hypnosis, one of the things that comes up is smoking.  Hypnosis is often thought of as a great way to quit smoking, and it is, BUT….  I am often reluctant to discuss hypnosis for smoking cessation because it is a lot more complex than just coming in, being hypnotized and getting “cured”.  Hypnosis has …

Hypnosis by Phone

Do you need to be in front of a hypnotherapist in order to be hypnotized? The answer is no. Hypnosis is done via voice so as long as you can hear your hypnotherapist, you are good. The question becomes, should I get hypnotherapy over the phone? There is nothing wrong with phone hypnosis but many hypnotherapists prefer seeing you in front of them- present company included. There are a few reasons for this. When you are in front of a hypnotherapist, they can tell about how deep you are by looking at you, there are depth tests that can only …

I want to by hypnotized, try a different spell!

The question many hypnotherapists get asked most is, can anyone be hypnotized?  I don’t think there is a yes or no answer to this question.  One main factor is how the hypnotherapist relates with the client.  I have two daughters, 11 and 13.  My 11 year old can be very…strong willed shall we say?  She doesn’t respond well to being asked or told to do things.  I don’t usually hypnotize her because I know I can’t.  The other day I decided to do a depth test on my oldest.  I had my 11 year old join as so she wouldn’t …
