"The Kindest Cut"-TBHT Newsletter-April 2019

“The kindest cut of all” is a saying in gardening. I was reminded of it while tending to my grapes: the fruit will not set on old stems but rather, requires a hard trim of the old growth, if the plant is to produce abundant fruit. In preparation for the rebirth that is spring, some old stuff had to go.

A quick google search will get you many other applications of this phrase, it is a “ripe” metaphor for “letting go” (pardon the pun).

Because there is a wisdom is releasing the old, in letting go of the things not serving you TODAY.

And you might be surprised at some of the old things that can quickly be released from your unconscious mind…

“The kindest cut of all”, makes room for something new, something intentional (rather than chance), and something abundant.

-Our FREE Meet Up in April is "A Spring Cleaning-the Value of Letting Go; Hypnosis and Life Mastery”“. Registration opens April 4th.

-For those interested, you can check out last month’s Meet Up presentation, FREE for 30 days: “Unstoppable Confidence vs the Inner Critic” Recordings here:



-TROUBLE SLEEPING? Daylight savings can really muck with one’s natural sleep cycles. Hypnosis is fabulous at retraining your mind to a better sleep pattern. Our featured affiliate’s Hypnosis Download for April is “The Insomnia Hypnosis-5pack”.

May your garden be in full bloom.

“A GOOD PROBLEM to have!”-TampaBay HypnoTherapy Newsletter November 2018

Can there really be “too much” of a good thing? Can “abundance” sometimes be its own “problem”?

Its like what happened when you turned up your Halloween basket to see what you had collected after a night Trick o' Treating. So many choices…you needed a strategy because you could not eat them all at once…can you remember how you would choose?

If you are like most of us-deep unconscious filters, in alignment with your most powerful goals and emotions (the pleasure of chocolate?) guided your decision, without much conscious thought.

Research shows that having an abundance of choices available sometimes leads to “overload”. Too many choices can lead to indecision (which is a choice), poor decisions, impulsive (habituated/default) decisions, a willingness to be influenced (as we seek to end the cognitive dissonance/discomfort by choosing) and even fuels the modern day “FOMO” (fear of missing out)-which can drive us into patterns that are distracting and unproductive.

There are many examples to be found as the holidays approach-with so many things to available to us like food, drinks, activities, gifts, gatherings…all competing for our attention, time and energy…

“This is a GREAT PROBLEM to have”-is a nice reframe that reduces stress (which allows for better thinking and choosing). You might just try 3 deep breaths and repeat that to yourself a few times when you are faced with all those choices…

But life in our Western world is full of choices, everyday. The hypnotic arts help you get clarity about matters to you most, helps to resolve inner conflicts between choice option,s and propels you into a momentum of positive change, all while facilitating those shifts in a way that is easy, quick, automatic and permanent-just an “effortless” way of being.

Lots of choices about how you can learn more before 2018 ends:

Our own FREE HYPNOSIS MEET-UP for November is the always popular “Weight Management through the Holidays: Hypnosis and Health”.

Gift Certificates are a tremendous holiday gift and right NOW you can get a Holiday Bonus- 100.00 sessions for customized “Stress management” or “Better Self-Esteem”. We are offering a 90 minute session which includes a your custom hypnotic recording to start the New Year right; for yourself or someone you love. Just email me at https://www.tampabayhypnotherapy.com to get yours!

Our Featured Affiliate recording this month is a follow up to our FREE October Meet Up on “Reducing Fear/Anxiety and Hypnosis”;“Instant Generalized Anxiety Treatment”. Though really-you should check out the over 100 specific anxiety related titles they offer-for example “Transform a Stressful Christmas Into a Peaceful One.

Saving the last for best (that’s one unconscious strategy to choosing): FOR ANYONE with a interest in the hypnotic arts, the Hypnosis Education Association of Florida is holding their 20th Annual Conference in Orlando November 9/10 and 11th. We have an amazing line up of presenters and topics but our Featured Speaker is Will Horton, who will be offering a workshop after the event on Addictions and Hypnosis! Entertainment Saturday includes a Stage Hypnosis Show with our own Erick Kand! To learn more and register visit the announcement at http://heahypnosis.com/conferences/conference-2018-fall/.

Hurricane Michael Relief: We are open to offering up to 6 sessions of FREE supportive counseling and stress management to victims of Hurricane Michael by teleconferencing. I have extensive experience in disaster recovery and trauma resolution. If you know of someone who might benefit from having a safe place to talk, please have them contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. No gimmicks, all heart, its a choice.

And don’t forget to CHOOSE WISELY this election season. Until next time-gratitude gratitude gratitude for having so many choices…a great problem to have!


Changing Seasons-Tampa Bay Hypno-Therapy Newsletter, September 2018

Yet another couple has come through my office...their marriage falling apart...over politics. This has actually become so common, I am not the first to write of it.

One might be inclined to say that politics was just a metaphor for the real problem in this marriage but that would deny that we are living in very highly charged times politically, economically and emotionally.

Friends, families, the fabric of our community seems to be dividing into polar opposites; civility and rational discussions jettisoned as values collide in households and communities across the nation.

For we students of the ART of INFLUENCE, there is a lot to study about our country’s current state. Fear is a powerful motivator, but in activating the fight or flight response, it results in more irrational thinking and greater openness to suggestion.

Just want to encourage you all to VOTE.

To VOTE INFORMED, and not “Influenced”.

To VOTE WITH the COURAGE of your convictions, and not your fears.

I found the League of Women Voter’s to have been helpful: https://vote.lwvspa.org

Elections aside, and just in time for Halloween, our FREE Meetup for October is on “Overcoming Fear: Hypnosis and Life Mastery” with a special guest speaker, our fellow Mind Artist and CCHt, Ashley Caputo is leading!

Our November presentation is our annual holiday encore “Weight Management through the Holidays: Hypnosis and Health”.

Fear is but one of the emotions we must master, if we are to master our relationships, lives and even the fate of this great country. Anger, guilt, jealousy, shame, resentment…even love, kindness and compassion…our hypnotic download affiliate has oodles of recordings to facilitate “Emotional Intelligence”, too many to list. Check them out by clicking here!

The Hypnosis Education Association of Florida is lining up for our November 9-11th Conference in Orlando. Will Horton is on deck, for 2 presentations and he will be offering a separate 2 day post conference course on working with addictions using hypnosis. Anyone with an interest in the hypnotic arts can attend. Stayed tuned for official announcements at www.heahypnosis.com

Hope you all make time to enjoy the season change wherever you are…
