Hypnosis and the Fear of Public Speaking

May 28th, 2012 § Comments Off on Hypnosis and the Fear of Public Speaking § permalink

The mere thought of standing in front of a group to present an idea or to deliver a speech can strike terror in the hearts of even the most confident of individuals. Fear of public speaking is called by many terms like speech anxiety, stage fright, fear of speaking, performance anxiety, and includes everything from standing on the stage speaking to a large audience, to answering a question in a meeting, or speaking to your boss one-on-one.

For those who suffer with the fear of public speaking, “glossophobia,” the results can be devastating. According to the Speech Topics Help, Advice and Ideas website, the fear of public speaking can have severe negative effects on careers. Workplace public speaking starts with the job interview, and for some, experiencing extreme anxiety symptoms during an interview can result in an inaccurate assessment of their ability to perform on the job. » Read the rest of this entry «

Hypnosis and Motivation to Exercise!

May 1st, 2012 § 4 comments § permalink

We have all heard the old adage, “Getting motivated is easy, staying motivated is the hard part!” This is true whether we are talking about motivation to eat right, exercise, get up early, quit smoking, think positive, and so on.

Why is it that we cannot seem to stay motivated to do the things we want to do? We know that what we want for ourselves is better for us than what we are currently doing, or not doing. We know that we will be happier in the having of, or the doing of, what we want. So what gives? How can we successfully maintain that initial excitement and motivation we feel when we first get excited about making personal change? » Read the rest of this entry «

Hypnosis and Sports Performance

The largest percentage of clients coming to visit me at Intuitive Hypnosis in Portland, Oregon for sports related requests, tend to be those wishing to improve their golf game. However, hypnosis can be equally useful with all kinds of individual and competitive sports. I have worked with clients who successfully improved their performance levels in competitive ice skating, triathlon, varsity softball, horseback riding, K-9 competition, and more. The most successful of clients and athletes also tend to be those who have learned to “see” themselves as successful.  They have learned to master the psychology of their individual and/or team sport. » Read the rest of this entry «

Decision Making vs Wishful Thinking

We’re all faced with great possibilities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations” — author unknown.

Decision-making is an art, and like most things in life, the more you do it the better you become at doing it effectively. Increasing the number of decisions you make also increases the risk of making a wrong decision occasionally. Nevertheless, it is clear that those who make decisions on a regular basis are those who find more success in life, due to the fact that they take more risk, make more decisions, and thereby provide more opportunities for success.

At Intuitive Hypnosis, some of the most frequently asked questions from clients are, “Will this work for me? Why does hypnosis help some people and not others? What can I do to ensure success in reaching my goals?” » Read the rest of this entry «

Using Hypnosis To Keep That New Year’s Resolution

December 28th, 2011 § Comments Off on Using Hypnosis To Keep That New Year’s Resolution § permalink

If you’re like most of us, at some point in your life you’ve made a New Year’s Resolution, but didn’t keep it despite your best intentions. January is a busy time of year at the office of Intuitive Hypnosis because many people have discovered that using hypnosis greatly increases their chance of success in keeping those resolutions.

The difference between making and keeping a resolution can feel like a constant battle between our conscious mind, with all it’s desires and positive intentions, and our subconscious mind, full of programming and conditioned responses. It’s easy to get frustrated when we lose the momentum we started out with. Hypnosis provides the opportunity to bridge the gap between the conscious and subconscious minds. Using  targeted suggestions in a relaxed mental state, you can take control of the programs in your subconscious mind and create the changes you desire. » Read the rest of this entry «
