Woman Becomes Herself Through Hypnosis!

November 7, 2019

Incredibly, a report has just surfaced from the Pacific Northwest that a woman has actually become herself! This strange occurrence came about after she visited certified hypnotherapist Kelley T. Woods, who has a private practice in Anacortes, Washington.

Jane Doe (name changed to protect privacy) explains, “I had struggled for years...just never really being myself. I tried all sorts of things, from doing Zumba, to joining a book club and even listening to New Age music...but none of it worked until I found Kelley.”

Many people suffer from not being themselves; in fact, this disorder has become rampant, especially in recent decades. The condition is suspected to be rooted in childhood pressures to conform to societal and even familial standards, relegating true identities to deep recesses. Some people are even unaware that they have NBO (Not Being Oneself) and can live prolonged, unhappy and dissatisfied lives with a total lack of awareness.

In Ms. Doe’s case, she suspected that something was wrong several years ago, after her children told her, “Mom, you’re not being yourself.” A prudent check with her husband and even her co-workers confirmed that she was indeed afflicted by this insidious issue.  She then began her long and expensive search for a cure and by the time she discovered hypnosis, she was at a desperate place.

“Jane was an ideal candidate for hypnosis,” asserts Ms. Woods. “She found that she spent most of her waking hours and even a large majority of her sleeping ones in a state of not being herself. Her symptoms included feelings of dis-ingenuousness  and betrayal, which interfered with having a real and healthy relationship with herself.”

After receiving a series of hypnosis sessions, Jane experienced a full recovery and now feels completely like herself. This has improved her life greatly and she looks forward everyday to seeing herself in her bathroom mirror. She is so pleased with how hypnosis helped that she has started a support group for NBO sufferers.

Hypnosis can help people who suffer from NBO – it is safe and drug free.

 

Put Hypnosis on Your Holiday Wish List

November 7, 2019

As you grow older, the holiday season takes on a sense of urgency. Being no longer a child whose main concern is crafting a letter to Santa Claus, you may find your own list is probably comprised of an overwhelming concoction of shopping, cooking and baking, wrapping, decorating, card-writing, recital attending details...all to be completed while still maintaining a regular schedule of work, home and family care and/or school!

Add to the mix the prospect of getting together with relatives wh...

Sleeeeep.

December 17, 2017

One of the most beneficial side effects of engaging in hypnosis is, for many, improvement in the quality of sleep. Whether it is due to a “re-training” of conditioned sleep habits, or because bothersome issues are finally being dealt with, hypnosis can facilitate resolution of insomnia.

Research shows that chronic lack of sleep results in daytime sleepiness, fatigue, and cognitive impairment. People who do not get quality sleep actually wake in a stressed state which can accelerate throu...

Remembering the New

October 26, 2017

Remembering the new...that's what a client did yesterday in my office. A young man, referred by his relative, came in for some help with anxiety. Frankly, he was somewhat skeptical that hypnosis could help and actually stated that he thought it was "weird".

I agreed with him, but then added that I enjoy weird stuff.

After talking for a bit, I asked him if he would like to know what it felt to NOT feel anxious. (He had stated that he couldn't remember a time when he hadn't.) He said that w...

Pain Relief is a Formal Feeling

October 16, 2017

I love my clients...all of them; I appreciate their unique personalities and problems...each and every one. But sometimes, one particular person enters our life who is very special, who almost makes me feel like I should be the one paying them!

I had the joy of working with such a client; a spry 85 yr old woman who sought me out for pain relief. Recently, due to an increase in deaths due to prescription drug overdose, the powers-that-be have imposed restrictions on pain med usage, limiting...

Hypnosis for Morning Sickness

October 7, 2017

Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is once again pregnant and once again, is suffering from a condition known as Hyperemesis Gravidarum, a form of extreme morning sickness that may cause dangerous results such as dehydration, weight loss, temperature spikes, irregular pulse rate and jaundice. Women suffering with unrelenting cases of this affliction may even opt for therapeutic abortions.

Interestingly, there is evidence that this problem is largely reserved for more civilized soc...

Potato, Potatoe, They both taste great!

September 21, 2016

I recently worked with a new client who drove more than 60 miles to come see me! This person wants help with some self perception issues and habit control. During intake, she specifically requested that we do not use hypnosis. She preferred that I use NLP with her, and explained that years ago, a relative had successfully removed a phobia of hers with an NLP process.

I told her that was wonderful; I love to work with people who have already experienced success with changing how they think an...

Who, me, worry?

September 21, 2016

When I was a kid, my dad introduced me to my very own "worry" rock. I was about 6 and we were skipping stones on the beach when he reached down, found just the right stone and presented it to me. He showed me how to hold the stone in one hand and rub my thumb against it. He told me that if I were ever worried about something, I could just hold that stone and rub the concerns away.

Over the years, my dad and I have exchanged different worry stones. For his recent 88th birthday, I gave him a...

Why Do Hypnotherapists Use Physical Relaxation Techniques?

July 22, 2016

Although relaxation is not required for hypnotic states (think of accident victims, attendees of rock music shows, tribal drumming participants, athletes, etc.) there are several reasons why I might use a relaxation approach when you come in for hypnosis.

Relaxing the body feels good. Relaxation is pleasure. When muscle tightness and tension leave, circulation improves and comfort levels usually rise. Simply allowing the body to relax instigates what is known as The Relaxation Response.
