“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:

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…


Addictions Interview

I just responded to an interview request from a Master's level student doing her thesis about the field of addiction work. I took the time to respond and thought that it might also be useful information for anyone looking to learn more about who I am, my experience or orientation.

Background/experience/education of counselor; work setting/clientele I have been licensed since 1999, and have worked in the social services field since 1991. Most of that time was spent working with families and children in dependency (about 20 years), prevention, interventions, reunifications, terminations, foster care and adoptions. I spent another 7 years in disaster recovery after Hurricane Katrina. 10 years ago, I left a the non profit world, having attained national position, and have pursued my life long dream of being a hypnotherapist. I have been in private practice for 10 years now. Trauma is the thread that runs through all my work career.

Diversity/Social Justice issues: The preponderance of my career was spent in non- profit social services, I think I have been exposed to just about every special population that exist. I have served the underserved, the forgotten, the ignored, the marginalized and the hopeless. Because of that experience, today, I feel really competent to serve whomever comes through the door, but I continue to have a space in my heart for the children in foster care and often see them pro-bono because I want them to have access to treatments that can heal their wounds, not just medicate them.

Theoretical orientation & view of the healing process for addictive behaviors; There is a medical side to addiction and I refer to programs that support the kind of work that I do. I do believe it is vital to teach people skills for emotional self regulation and managing their experiences (meditation, mindfulness, bi lateral strategies, trances, etc). Beyond physiological addiction I am always after-what’s at the core, what needs to be healed so that this person can begin to make better choices-the behavioral component is only a symptom. Now, some “addictions” are easily addressed by straight up direct hypnotic suggestion (smoking and food for example), others require a transformation in experience.

Likes and dislikes of working in the field; advice for new counselors While I value the all of the experiences I had in social services, because they made me the expert in trauma that I am today; its a set up for burn out. Low wages, excessive hours, high stress, poor support…As a private practitioner, there is a business that has to be managed alongside your actual time with clients-that be a drag sometimes. My advice, find the things you like to do and go that route. I LOVE what I am doing today, I love helping people change quickly and make money. I love the flexibility, creativity and control I have over it all today.

Prediction/projection of the “state of the field” over the next ten years; The need is only going to grow-people seem more disconnected, lost and traumatized that ever. Medications are easy/quick; and everyone is taking them. Thats the downside. On the upside-There will be even more on-line mental health services, and virtual reality will become a corrective experience. My dream is that stigma is reduced more everyday and folks start to take seriously the mental/physical and emotional benefits of tending to their mental health daily. The mindfulness movement has normalized positive practices that anyone can do and I think that awareness is only going to grow.

Putting Off Procrastination: TampaBay HypnoTherapy-April 2018 Newsletter

“WHAT IF?” is a powerfully suggestive phrase, that focuses and stimulates the imagination… and imagination, of course, is the prerequisite to much of our lives. Good, bad or indifferent-what we imagine as possible is pretty much we allow ourselves to experience.

What IF?

I begin today to know myself as the kind of person who gets things done NOW?

What IF?

I develop such love for self-discipline, that “getting things done” feels better than ice cream?

What IF?

My intentions and my attention were aligned so that moving forward on my goals is easy?

What IF?

Hypnosis can help with “putting off” my old procrastination habit?

After all, the old unconscious “habit” of procrastinating, is only a function of your imagination anyway. You don’t really have to wait anymore…taking it one step at a time…

Join us for our FREE April Meet Up “Putting Off Procrastination”. Mark your calendars NOW because in May we will focus on dealing with “Change and Uncertainty” and in June we will do a presentation on the use of “Hypnosis in Medicine and Health”.
