This couple came to me one at a time – each had their own issues on which they wanted to work. He was looking for more self confidence and to be able to let go of any unknown blocks that might keep him from being successful in his own business. She was happy in her stressful work, but found that she was drinking more wine than she felt was healthy for her.
During their individual sessions we talked about all the stressors, triggers and old patterns and beliefs that held them each in their own “stuckness.” She was very wary of hypnosis and how it worked. I explained to her in depth that she was always in control (a concern of hers) and that I could not make her do anything she did not want to do.
During the hypnosis session I was able to guide them into a safe, yet powerful experience to “let go” of the patterns and beliefs and provided suggestions for the changes that each was wanting to occur in their lives. After the initial session, she stopped drinking except for an occasional glass of wine. He was able to get up in front of any group and talk confidently about his business. After their respective second sessions they each felt more relaxed, confident and continued to improve the quality of their lives and the changes that each was desiring. And, I am happy to report that after a year and a half, each one still continues to move forward without the concerns of the past. She drinks an occasional glass of wine and he is leading a thriving business. Congratulations to both!
