The Most Wonderful Time of the Year! Really??????

Let’s play a little game. What do the following things have in common?
Thanksgiving, Christmas, family, shopping, gifts, decorations, parties, and friends.
If you answered “Stress” you’re right.
For many people, the most wonderful time of the year is also the most stressful time of the year. The busyness of the season can make us want to skip the calendar ahead to January (or May if you’re like me and would just as soon skip winter altogether).
There’s the details of decoration, the pressure of parties, searching the stores for just the right gift, the baking and the cooking. It seems that every aspect of the holiday season is designed to stress out even the most easy-going person.
So, I’ve decided to do something about it. For the month of December, relaxation and stress management sessions will be on sale for $60 each. Take an hour for a mental massage, relax your mind and body, and rediscover why this is called The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.
And don’t forget, since stress management doesn’t end with Santa’s visit, a gift certificate for a January session at December prices is always a thoughtful and welcome gift.
Call Linda at 616.550.3231 to schedule your holiday stress management session now.

My Civic Duty is Your Gain

I recently announced a special on Smoking Cessation to run the week of November 13-17, 2017, in honor of The Great American Smokeout. But plans change, as I have received a summons for jury duty that week. So my civic duty becomes your gain, as I have decided to extend this special for the entire month of November instead.
And remember, no judging here.
Call Linda Knight at 616.550.3231 to schedule your discounted smoking cessation session in the month of November. Slots are already filling up.

Primary Care or Specialist

Do you prefer a primary care physician to handle your health care, or are you the kind of person who wants to see a specialist for every illness?
Over my years in practice, I have considered myself as a generalist in the field of hypnotherapy, trained and skilled in many different applications of hypnotherapy for many presenting problems. I have worked with children, teens, adults, and senior citizens. I have helped people reach goals in their personal lives and their professional lives. I have worked with people to change long term habits and unhelpful thought patterns. It seems that every day I am presented with new information and new opportunities to use hypnosis to help with something else.
I have been a longtime student in the use of hypnosis for pain management and symptom management for many chronic illnesses. I am specifically certified in the use of hypnosis for Pain Management, Fibromyalgia, and Hypno-Chemo, a program designed to help cancer patients and their caregivers better manage their care.
I have also studied the applications of hypnosis in everyday life, becoming certified in the areas stress reduction and emotional release. I work with people to stop smoking, chewing tobacco, drinking, pulling their hair, and biting their nails. I am successful in helping people overcome phobias that have plagued them for years. I’ve helped people release weight, and stop the negative thinking that is holding them back.
And I’ve come to realize that I want to do it all. So while I will continue to add new areas of specialty, I don’t think I’m cut out to be a specialist. I want to be your go to hypnotherapist. If any of the topics I’ve mentioned above are areas where you need help, or if I didn’t mention something but you’re just curious about whether or not hypnosis can help you with what’s on your mind, call me at 616.550.3231 to schedule a free 30 minute consultation. And if I don’t think I can help, I will be happy to refer you to a specialist who can.

The Great American Smoke Out is Coming to Hypnotherapy Associates of Grand Rapids

The Times, They Are A-Changing

Have you ever noticed that people seem to want things be different, or better, but they don’t really want to change. We embrace change most when it is someone or something else doing the changing. If only we had a new job, a better boss, a more supportive partner… then things would be so much different in our lives.

I asked someone today, “What do you have to do that you don’t want to do, to get the results you desire?” His response was quick and simple. One word, in fact. But then he launched into an explanation of why that wouldn’t work for him, how he’s tried, but it just didn’t make sense to him. If only the company he worked for would develop a chart that flowed more in line with his way of thinking, he would be able to do it so much better. He didn’t want to change his way of doing things, even though he knew it would bring him the results he wanted.

What is it that you have to do, that you don’t want to do, to get the results you want? Do you need to give up that afternoon snack to lose some weight? Do you need to start an exercise program, or schedule even mundane tasks into your calendar just to get them done? What dragons do you need to slay in your life that are eating away at your productivity and success?

Hypnotherapy is an excellent tool for identifying and making changes in your life, the ones you want and the ones you don’t. The times, they are a-changing… are you changing and growing along with them?

From the Mailbox

Just wanted to share a note I received from a client yesterday. I wonder what you can’t imagine yourself doing… and if you’re ready to allow hypnotherapy to help you imagine and achieve it?

I just wanted to reach out to you and let you know how appreciative I am for your help with my nail biting! I never imagined myself being able to stop that horrible habit but hypnotherapy completely changed that! – SV
