Get the Brain Skills for Fast and Lasting Results!

If you’ve tried other diets and weight loss programs, you are likely very frustrated and wondering, ‘Why doesn’t it work for me or Why can’t I stick with it?’

Other programs focus on foods to eat and foods to avoid, but just knowing what to do is not enough. Even though you know what to do it’s your mind that determines whether you will follow through or not. Other programs are missing the most important piece of the puzzle – your BRAIN. The REAL reasons we gain weight are:

  • Old Habits
  • Cravings
  • Mental Blocks
  • Lack of Motivation
  • Self Sabotage

These are all patterns wired into your brain.

America doesn’t need another diet – what we really need is a BRAIN intervention!

So let’s get started.

Brain Training can give you the tools and skills you need to REWIRE old thought and feeling habits and even get your UNCONSCIOUS mind on board with your CONSCIOUS Goals.

Most mainstream weight loss programs simply don’t know how to work with the unconscious mind, so they simply ignore it. But this leads to years and years of frustration, struggle and lack of belief in your abilities and willpower.

How will ‘Brain Training’ work for you?

Through advanced trainings, case studies and research, I’ve brought together the best tools and skills to apply what works. My program draws upon proven skills, strategies and techniques to help your BRAIN shift its focus.  Here’s some of the foundational trainings and skills I include in this program.

  • Neuro Linguistic Programming or NLP: NLP looks at how the brain CODES information and how we can use that code to make updates and changes to what your BRAIN is doing. See the two videos below.
  • Thought Pattern Management: Advanced trainings based off of NLP and Hypnosis that understands how to teach the mind to make its own updates and changes. We can help the mind rewire old thinking, recurring negative habits, thoughts and feelings. Find greater calm, well being and the ability to enjoy your life.
  • Hypnosis: Understands how the Unconscious mind works and how to get the mind to shift its filters, effectively turning off cravings, clearing mental blocks and even self sabotage.

Here’s How NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming Works

The very simplest example of NLP or Neuro Linguistic Programming is found in how we engage the power of language to tune our mind and attention.

 Watch this video which shows you how to begin engaging the power of your mind at the simplest level.

If you say things like, “I need to lose 20 pounds” or “I’m not going to not eat sugar anymore,” you could be setting up your BRAIN to FAIL. Watch this video on how to make goals ‘brain friendly’ and 

and how to begin speaking with your deeper mind.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg – it goes way beyond positive thinking.

NLP understands how the brain CODES information – and HOW we can use that code to make updates and changes to how it operates.

Watch this video on how to use the brain’s coding system to quickly change cravings.

This process is a very simple level of how this works, but it can give you a very effective taste. As you’ll see in this program, I’ll give you easy tools and brain skills you can use to finally control your own BRAIN!

NLP also boosts the effectiveness of Hypnosis.

Hypnosis is very powerful at working with the unconscious mind to change the habits, cravings, mental blocks and self sabotage. We find its even more effective with the added skill set of NLP and knowing how the brain works.

Here’s the basis of how if works with your Brain.

The Mind Body Connection is REAL. What we think about physically affects your body. This is the basis of Hypnosis. Watch the video and see how Hypnosis will work for you.

Common Concerns about Hypnosis:

Hypnosis will not take over your mind. In therapeutic hypnosis we do things much differently than stage shows. Stage shows use confusion patterns that confuse the mind so that the person looks for direction from the hypnotist. Yes its funny, but that momentary brain confusion doesn’t last.

In therapeutic hypnosis we simply use relaxation and focus techniques. There is NO blanking out or losing control, you are aware and awake the whole time. As your conscious and unconscious work together, you can experience the amazing benefits of redirecting your mind even at the unconscious level.

An example of this is easily found in cravings. If you have been craving the wrong foods, your unconscious has fixated on it for a reason. So its simply a matter of addressing the underlying pattern and helping your mind switch its focus. I’ve even had clients come back saying,

“I just can’t stop eating salad it tastes so good to me!” –Paula M Portland OR

Hypnosis is like Meditation on Steroids

Hypnosis in research: In 1970, Alfred Barrios brought hypnosis into mainstream acceptance as a valid and effective form of therapy and personal changework. Barrios compared 1,018 studies and articles on hypnosis, 899 articles on psychoanalytic therapy and 355 studies on behavioral therapy. He compared the overall success rates found in these therapies and his results found the following:

  • Hypnotherapy had a massive 93% success rate after only 6 sessions.
  • Behavioral therapy had a 72% success rate after 22 sessions.
  • And Psychotherapy had only a 38% success rate after an average of 600 sessions.

From his compiling, he concluded that hypnosis was not only the most effective method, but that it needed less time and fewer sessions than any other type of personal growth work.
