HypnoCoaching = Hypnotherapy + Coaching

ThriveNOW is my custom designed approach that incorporates life coaching with hypnosis is the most powerful combination I’ve ever seen for rapidly creating positive self-improvement that truly lasts. Used together, hypnosis and coaching provide a diverse set of strategies to help clients rapidly achieve their personal, professional and life goals.

As you can imagine, hypnosis and coaching are a powerful combination that offers a more comprehensive, integrated approach working much deeper and faster than traditional therapy or even coaching where you can make real changes that LAST.

This is where my ThriveNOW can provide more powerful, lasting results.

Start. Getting. Excited.

Coaching engages your conscious mind by bringing self-awareness to your patterns and mobilizing action plans for day-to-day decision making.

Hypnotherapy anchors in more sustainable and synergistic changes by transforming you at the level of the subconscious mind, where limiting beliefs, emotional triggers (memories) and habits are stored. As you may know, our behaviors are built upon beliefs, values, and conditioned patterns running in the subconscious mind.

As a habit expert and long-time coach to clients looking to break entrenched addictions and bad habits that had them feeling stuck, I’ve seen first hand how challenging it is to bring about changes using mere willpower. Working with just our conscious mind is often a futile endeavor.  One step forward leads to two steps backward.

How many times have you tried to implement a positive change in your life (“I’m going to start going to the gym tomorrow and for REAL this time…”), only to find that the next day or even a few weeks later you’re back to your old bad habits?

I was a food addict for 20 years and overcame a gripping eating disorder, so I know intimately about the shame and struggle we as human beings face trying to make changes in our lives. Even when we really, really, really want to stop…we just can’t seem to get where we want to go.
