CAROLYN LEWIS, Certified Hypnotherapist
Essex Junction, Vermont
I have used self-hypnosis in my own life since 1975 when I first used
hypnosis for weight loss. For me, the principles and techniques I learned
so many years ago have become a way of life, one which allows me to
continually guide my own life, attitudes and behaviors in positive directions.
I feel truly fortunate to have discovered tools that have helped me
tap my own inner resources so profoundly. I believe that my physical,
mental, emotional and spiritual health have all benefited from regular
use of these simple tools.
Before becoming a hypnotherapist, I worked for many years in the field
of fitness, as an instructor and a manager of fitness centers. I thoroughly
enjoyed helping people become healthier and happier through the practice
of regular exercise, but came to realize that many people were missing
out on much of their potential. They simply didnt know how to
access the power of their own subconscious mind to achieve the results
they wanted. I realized that I wanted to be able to help people achieve
their goals by trying easy which is how I sometimes describe
change through hypnosis.
I completed my training through the National Guild of Hypnotists, and
became a Certified Hypnotherapist in 1997.
I received advanced training in transpersonal hypnotherapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) from Jack Elias in Seattle, Washington (www.findingtruemagic.com). Jack's book, Finding True Magic is an internationally used text for transpersonal hypnotherapy training. Transpersonal refers to seeing an individual as a whole person, not simply some symptoms to be "eliminated". Though difficult to describe, you will get a feel for this in your sessions with me. As I get to know you in our initial discussion, I will be able to tailor our sessions to fit your personal style and circumstances.
In 1999, I also became trained in the use of the Emotional Freedom Techniques, and became certified in HypnoBirthing. I continue to enhance
my practice with ongoing training and networking with other hypnotherapists
and EFT practitioners, to offer my clients the latest and best techniques.
I believe deeply in the ability of each individual to tap into their
natural wisdom and healing abilities when given the time, space and
guidance. I serve as a guide to assist you. Together, we will create
and access the resources that will allow you to make the changes you
desire in a way that is healthy, whole and balanced for you.
