Kids and Hypnosis
Parents often call me asking "Can my child be hypnotized?" The answer is YES! In my experience children are often very amenable to hypnosis. In fact, kids respond really well to hypnosis. Maybe it's a component of their lack of world experience or a more robust imagination but many children find it easy to go into hypnosis and benefit from the change work as well. Over the years, I have been able to help young people improve school & sports performance, increase confidence, stop nail biting, hair pulling and more.
Working with young people is great because of the energy they bring to the session - I sense an open-mindedness and awareness that is just not there with adults. It's also impressive when the child has asked to come see the hypnotist... this tells me the young person is ready for change and they have often done their research and are already committed to the process.
Recently a client came to me about hair pulling. She is a strong and independent woman that has battled hair pulling for more than three decades. After she put this embarrassing habit behind her, she said to me "I wish I had used hypnosis back when I was a young kid, when my hair pulling started... it would have saved me a lot of pain..." For those parents with a child that is suffering from a self-limiting behavior, I strongly encourage you to consider hypnosis now, while your child is young. I offer a free consultation to answer any of your questions.
My Name in Lights!
Very excited about my 2016 advertising campaign and here is one element of it. A dear friend Marc Lussier designed this advertisement for display on a prominent LED billboard here in Baltimore (the largest LED billboard between Atlanta and NYC).
It can be seen near Baltimore's Penn Station. Tell me what you think.
Here we are well into the month of January, Many have made those fabled New Year's resolutions. Did you make one? If so, how's it coming? Are you still on track, and making progress? A New Year's resolution is pretty much just like any goal, it just coincides with the new year, heralding a new beginning... out with the old and in with the new.
When it comes to any goal here are some simple steps you can take to increase your success:
Decide & Intend you goal. Think about exactly what it is you want, how it will look, how you will feel when you achieve it, what it's execution will mean for you. Once you have a good grasp of what you want make a deliberate decision to take action on it.
Write it down. Capture exactly what you want on paper. If you journal, write out a short headline in the journal of the goal along with 2 -3 sentences about the specifics of it. Then compound the effect by writing the goal's short title again on note cards (or even better) sticky notes and post them where you can see them. If you do not journal, just write the goal itself out on the sticky notes.
Publish it. Thats a fancy way of saying tell someone. Tell your friend, a family member, a coworker, a peer, Tell one person or a bunch of people, make a blog post or put it on Facebook. Just make it known to others.
All of these steps send out the signal of how serious you are and only help to affirm your outcomes. Of course, if you need an additional boost, your local hypnotist can help maximize the power of your intent by helping you harness your subconscious mind. What to learn more, call me today for a free consultation.
World Hypnotism Day
Mark your calendar - January 4th is recognized throughout the world as the day we give our attention and appreciation to the art of hypnosis.
As I review 2015, I am so happy for and proud of my clients and the changes they have brought about through hypnosis. During the past year I have had the pleasure of helping clients: lose weight, stop smoking, stop nail biting, stop hair pulling, increase confidence, improve academic performance, and more.
I'm looking forward to 2016 and helping even more clients bring out their best, helping other hypnotists through our new NHG Chapter build community and expertise, and conducting new small group workshops that allow customers to explore hypnosis.
