One of the services offered at Seattle Healing is the ability to have Life Coaching Skype sessions as well as Hypnotherapy sessions via Skype. This capability is especially valuable to clients who don’t live in the area. We sat down with one Seattle Healing client, Nici, who lives in the Northeast Ohio area and has been working with Laura since September 2014. Nici has family who resides in Seattle, and she initially met with Laura on a visit to the area. But after returning home to Ohio, Nici knew that she still needed Laura’s help, and she remembered the Skype capability. That’s when everything fell into place. What brought you to Laura and Seattle Healing? My sister and her friends had visited Laura for a variety of reasons, and they all recommended her. I was very interested in talking with Laura as a Life Coach because at that time in my life, I really needed advice about my career and where my life was headed. So I met with her in person for three sessions, but about four months later, I realized that I needed to talk with her again. And since January, I’ve been Skyping with Laura regularly. How was the transition from in-person sessions to Skype sessions? I had zero transition issues at all. With Skype, it really is like talking to Laura in person because we’re having such a normal conversation. I still have that same personal interaction without needing to be in the office. I can see

To the Uninspired Woman Who Is Miserable in Her Job I am thinking of you today. I used to be you. I totally feel your pain. Today is Friday, and I will be working through the weekend … and I couldn’t be happier about it. The thing is, I love my job. I absolutely adore my clients and the work we do together. But it wasn’t always this way for me. I used to fantasize about a minor car accident on my way to work each morning. Nothing too serious but something that might take me out of work for a few days. Maybe even a few weeks. Of course, I would be the only injured party and would make a full recovery. I just wanted a break from the stress and monotony. Sustaining physical injury seemed more appealing than spending the next eight to 10 hours in my dark gray cubicle. At the time, it didn’t occur to me that this type of dread might have been a strong indicator that I was moving in the wrong direction.

Common Threads Written by Trevor McDowell (Blogger and Seattle Healing Client) There are common occurrences shared by all of us throughout our lives. One is the less than pleasant reality of being confronted with something we do not like about ourselves or our lives. We may find a flaw through self-reflection and analysis in our private time,

What do I mean by using hypnosis to increase confidence? Let me explain. If you don’t go within, you simply go without! This is one of my favorite spiritual principles. I have found that whenever my outside world is falling apart, my inside world is probably in need of a little house keeping. If your outside world is reflecting back to you circumstances that are negative and frustrating

Here are 5 Positive Changes you can make in your life right now with hypnosis: Hypnotherapy is a very powerful therapy that uses hypnosis to help you to get to the root of any issue quickly and effectively. You will be in control and actually hypnotizing yourself! So why do you need me? You can think of me as your tour guide to the subconscious mind. I will serve as a guide or a coach that guides you into a trance like state. This trance like state is characterized by focused attention, heightened suggestibility, and vivid fantasies. Sounds like fun right? There is nothing spooky about it. Most people have heard of hypnosis as an effective therapy for losing weight or smoking cessation which is absolutely true, but there is so much more! 1 STRESS RELIEF Are you feeling stressed to the max? Stress and anxiety can make you feel like you are caught on a hamster wheel, your mind ruminating over the same thoughts over and over. Hypnotherapy can help you relax. Hypnosis or hypnotherapy uses guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness. The person’s attention is so focused while in this state that anything going on around the person is temporarily blocked out or ignored. In this naturally occurring state, a person may focus his or her attention with the help of a hypnotherapist on specific thoughts or tasks. Not only does your body have the opportunity to completely relax, but
