Denver area friends, wanted you to know that I have a new Meetup group that I think you’d enjoy-Mind/Brain Explorations for Living. To help you create the life you are meant to be living, we will learn, explore, meditate and create on our journey to wellness and personal/spiritual growth.
Topics range from learning self-hypnosis techniques, stress relief, meditation, pain management, brain optimization, weight loss, and recovery support, to sound healing. Are you the type that loves to keep growing? We will have a creative, rewarding time together. I will be sharing a lot of the same information from my workshops and leading you through some hypnotic visualization sessions. So, this is a very affordable way to experience and learn. Each session will give you take-home exercises, techniques and info to support your creation of the New You!
Our next session, this Tuesday evening, is about willpower, how to access it and how to strengthen it. It’s pretty surprising stuff, based on the work of Dr. Kelly McGonigal.
Besides looking at this fresh new approach to habit change, I will be sharing a very simple 5-minute meditation that anyone can do, in fact, she says it works even better if you’re not good at it!
Space is limited to 8, so make sure to RSVP through Meetup, the rest of the info is there, too-

What is Hypnotherapy?
A more current term for it is self-directed neuroplasticity, where we learn techniques to rewire our brains to create the changes we want to see in our lives, whether it’s to release the past, deal with stress or to transform our lives.
According to the Mayo Clinic, it’s a “trance-like state in which you have heightened focus and concentration. Hypnosis is usually done with the help of a therapist using verbal repetition and mental images. When you’re under hypnosis, you usually feel calm and relaxed, and are more open to suggestions.
Hypnosis can be used to help you gain control over undesired behaviors or to help you cope better with anxiety or pain. It’s important to know that although you’re more open to suggestion during hypnosis, you don’t lose control over your behavior.” (See the short video about Myths and Misconceptions below.)
Since it’s a method to help you accomplish what you need or desire, its applications are endless. Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis for a particular goal or benefit. For a look at the many medical symptoms that may be alleviated, go to Hypnosis for Medical Conditions
Because each session offers new tools for change, a series of at least 3 weekly sessions is usually recommended. The Weight Loss from Within Program is 8-weeks. Sessions last from 75-90 minutes. After the intake or recap of the week, the actual hypnotic visualization takes 20-30 minutes. We then discuss the plan for the coming week and I share resources and take-home tools. Each program is tailor-made to fit your desires and motivations.
A team approach offers the greatest support, so I am happy to collaborate with your psychologist and/or medical professional.
