Success Coach for Children

Often times, parents will notice that children are having a challenging time with something in their life.  Just because they are little, do not overlook the issue.  Are they acting out or acting different?  Unable to excel in their sport or experiencing a lack of confidence?  Experiencing a change in behavior?  Doing poorly in school all of a sudden?

Children can have stress and anxiety just like adults. The most noticeable difference is the way they communicate their discomfort.  Limited vocabulary and inexperience in expressing themselves may prevent a child from explaining the issues in his or her active mind.  Crying, poor behavior, sleep disruptions, and unexplained stomachaches are just some of the ways a child may demonstrate anxiety, stress or fear. As a parent, teacher, or caregiver, it can be very frustrating to deal with a child who appears to be acting out for no apparent reason. When we take a closer look and attempt to communicate more effectively, the discovery of a specific fear or anxiety can be the root of inappropriate behaviors.

Hypnosis for Changes

Hypnosis can be used with children as young as 8 years old.   I have experience working with children and will spend the necessary time with you and your child to gather information, explain the process, and establish a trusting rapport with your child. The process works best when it is personalized, so details concerning the challenges the child is experiencing is important.   When all questions are adequately answered and information has been gathered, parents will be asked to relax in a separate waiting area where they can listen and see the child.

All that is required is that the child sits fairly still for about 20 minutes while the hypnotist uses a soothing voice to gently guide him or her into the “alpha stage.” The alpha stage is technically the stage before sleep. Being in the quiet and comfortable alpha stage during a hypnosis session isn’t sleep at all, but a highly focused stage that allows a person to absorb suggestions made to the subconscious mind.

I often uses storytelling techniques (for younger children) and visual imagery to help a child reprogram and re-frame thinking to support goals and solve problems. It’s an easy and highly effective process that feels good. Many children can begin to feel the positive changes after just one session. There is no performance required on the part of the child, other than a willingness to participate. Depending on the issue being addressed, multiple sessions may be required to get the full benefits.

Hypnosis is a safe, natural, and highly-effective holistic modality. Children are perfect candidates for hypnosis and can benefit greatly from this relaxing approach. They enjoy the feeling of empowerment when they realize they can create changes in their own behaviors through the use of their subconscious minds.

We give them a recording to reinforce the good habits and/or changes we discussed during our session and ask them to listen for one consecutive month.

What types of issues is hypnosis used for?

  • Anxiety
  • Confidence & self-esteem
  • Bed wetting
  • Nail Biting
  • Hair Pulling
  • Thumb sucking
  • Nightmares
  • Anxiety about school
  • Anxiety about the dentist
  • Fussy eating

Additional Support Methods

While hypnosis may be good for an issue or creating new, positive habits, your children may often benefit from some additional methods of dealing with stress or life in general.  At particular times, children may have roadblocks to their personal success and we want them to develop solutions. Listed below are some longer-term solutions to foster their new life skills.  Therefore, we also:

  • Teach them to use EFT/Tapping for stress and anxiety
  • Coach children with regard to individual issues
  • Athletic performance guided imagery, visualization and mental rehearsal
  • Learning to use visualization for their benefit
  • Goal Setting
  • Learning and Memory
  • Focus and Concentration
  • Coach frustrated parents

Appointments with children will often seem informal and relaxed.   We want the children to feel as comfortable as possible, so we can tap into this natural state for their benefit.  Call Tina Pineiro today for additional information or to schedule your appointment at 570-352-3048

Past Lives

Past Lives

  • Do you believe your soul travels through time and space to reincarnate into another body and another lifetime?
  • Are you experiencing unresolved issues such as fears, traumas and current life issues that you have addressed using other healing modalities?
  • Are you willing to go deep within to seek answers and truth?

Past Life exploration can empower you to release and heal.

Past Life hypnosis is a form of hypnosis that allows healing and communication between our spiritual and earthly self.  This tool can help you fully understand a current issue and to seek closure with the information  that may be revealed.

When a core issue that stems from a previous life is uncovered and resolved the symptoms in this life can disappear or provide information that can be resolved with further energy clearing and shamanic work.

Past Life hypnosis  can assist in healing trauma, pain, illness, fears, habits, addictions, phobias and more.  If there are no physiological or psychology reasons for the issue, past life exploration may uncover energetic memory that is recorded in our cellular structure of a past trauma.

A Past Life Regression can reveal the “root cause” of a present symptom, injury or chronic illness. For example, a fear of water could be related to a drowning in a past-life. Fears of speaking up may result to a past life in which hiding was needed to remain safe.

Some people come in for a session to have a clearer understanding of their life purpose.  By opening the door to deeper levels of the mind where communication between the spiritual and logical self takes place, we can understand more about our relationship to the universal connection.

How does Past Life Hypnosis work?

Hypnosis is used to access memories that are stored as energy in your cellular memory from the beginning of time up until the present. The subconscious mind is not limited by boundaries of (perceived) logic, time or space. After being induced into a trance state, we will ask you open-ended questions to gently guide you into an experience that is right for you. It may take more than one session for you to go deep enough to access a past life.

Is the information during a past life session real?

It is not uncommon for people to question whether they have made up or imagined their experiences while in hypnosis. Regardless of whether you believe the experiences are real or imagined, and whether you believe in the validity of past lives, the goal of the session is symptom relief or healing.

Everyone experiences this in a personal way based on his or her belief system.  It is important to keep an open mind during your session and allow your first impressions or flashes of information to come through. As the session progresses and with practice, images or impressions may become stronger. Be open and be curious. The mind is very powerful and can reveal a lot if you are open to and ready for it.

What will I experience?

When you are instructed by the hypnotist to walk through your present state and into a past life time you may experience one of several different reactions:

  • You may see yourself clearly or you may only see quick impressions
  • You may experience being in another body in another time – living their life
  • You may have a knowing about past information
  • You may hear sounds and feel what is around you
  • You may feel as if someone is telling you what is happening
  • You may not experience anything at in session, but have information revealed in dreams

Can I get stuck in a Past Life? 

No. This is an exercise in remembering by going more deeply into your subconscious mind that is part of you in the present. Your past lives no longer exist so you cannot get stuck in them, just as you cannot get stuck in hypnosis.

If at any time an image or feeling is uncomfortable, you will be able to  or detach from the experience. You are in complete control and will take only what you need to get out of the session for healing and personal growth. You will leave all negative events behind.

It is recommended (but not necessary) that you do an initial assessment and introductory hypnosis session if this is your first experience with hypnosis.  Hypnosis gets better as you “practice” it and you may have a better experience when you understand and have experienced the hypnotic state.

Weight

  • Do you struggle with your weight?
  • Do you start a diet only to give up or go back to your old eating habits?
  • Do you wish you could just lose naturally and keep it off?
  • Is being overweight negatively influencing all areas of your life, limiting your self esteem and holding you back from living the life you want to live?

End Emotional Eating

Many times people eat to feed their feelings, both happy and sad. When feelings affect when, what, and how much you eat, it’s called emotional eating.  Emotional eating can often lead to overeating. When you eat to satisfy your emotions and not your physical hunger, it can be hard to stop, even if your stomach is full.  If you suspect your eating is emotional, it is best to consult with a physician first before starting this or any program.

Our Program Works Well Together with Any Weight Loss Plan

You may already know that obesity is a health epidemic. Perhaps your doctor has told you that you must lose weight. You may already be aware of the relation between excess body weight and such medical conditions as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and sleep apnea.  Perhaps you feel as though all eyes are on you for the wrong reasons when you enter a room.

Did you know that not only is hypnosis a proven and highly effective technique to promote accelerated weight loss, but many doctors refer patients to me for weight loss hypnosis?  I will work in conjunction with your local physician-supervised weight management program. Patients in medical weight loss programs or meal plans find that hypnosis is the skill set and will-power that they need to succeed.

If you are advised by a physician to lose weight, you can take a 100% IRS Tax Credit for weight loss hypnosis. That’s not a deduction- it’s a FULL 100% Credit for what you paid
.

Treatment must be for a specific disease diagnosed by a physician (such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes or heart disease). That’s almost like getting your weight loss hypnosis program for free!

While many products may claim sensational weight loss miracles, without exercise or changing any eating habits and behaviors, nothing will change. Almost all weight loss experts agree that the key to long term healthy weight management lies in a permanent lifestyle change.  The mind is hardwired to move towards pleasure and away from pain.  So, if change is painful for you, you will naturally avoid it.

Weight Loss Hypnosis allows you to create new beliefs, new behaviors and take control of your life! Through hypnosis you change the way you think about food, improve your self image and create that lean healthy body.

It is highly recommended that before you start this program you see a doctor to rule out any physical issues relating to weight.

Stress & Worries

Oh, the multitude of ways in which we deal with stress!  Unfortunately, most of them are negative unless we make a conscious effort to deal with stress in a positive way.

Stress and constant worry or anxiety don’t have to consume you or make you feel bad.  There are ways in which we can change our habits, relearn ways in which to de-stress and stop the worried thoughts from taking over.

Anxiety and bouts of stress are surely a toxic combination that can leave your mentally and physically exhausted. It is something that permeates from the mental and emotional levels to create problematic physical symptoms and affects your feelings and perspectives in life.

There are a multitude of reasons we needlessly suffer from stress and anxiety.  Learning to know yourself and learning how to manage stress and anxiety symptoms will bring you relief and other benefits like:  happiness, good health, the ability to relax, better sleep and more.

The following is a list of some common symptoms of stress.

  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Poor energy levels
  • Stomach cramps associated with diarrhea and/or constipation
  • Irritability
  • Poor concentration
  • Inability to relax
  • Emotional outbursts
  • Worries, Anxiety
  • Feeling down

These are just some of the ways in which we see stress show up in our lives.  The good thing about this is that there are ways in which we can deal with our stress and prevent health issues later.

Some negative ways in which we try and deal with our stress:

  • Alcohol
  • Drug use, even over the counter use
  • Weight
  • Smoking
  • Self-harming behaviors
  • Ignoring issues
  • Sleeping too much or too little
  • Overworking

Learning to cope with stress and developing strategies to keep yourself healthy is a gift you give to yourself.  All of the negative habits you may have developed can be turned into life-changing solutions with some assistance.  These solutions can bring about positive feelings.  With the use of hypnosis and coaching, you can learn to work in your own best interest.

As a young Mom, I had panic and anxiety attacks and it changed my quality of life.  One thing I learned is that YOU are in control of your life experience.  Why not make it the best you can?

How does it work?

Our initial visit is to discuss your intended outcome for our session.   After learning about hypnosis,  we conduct a session.  You receive an MP3 for reinforcement.  The expectation is that you listen for 30 consecutive days.

Stop Smoking!

You know it’s time to quit.

You’re tired of the cost, smell, embarrassment, hiding your habit, finding a place to smoke, coughing, choking and not being able to breathe, just from walking up the stairs.    Maybe your health has suffered.  Maybe the health of others you love have suffered.  Maybe you are finally disgusted with this senseless and unhealthy habit.

Whatever the reason, you know you are READY TO QUIT. What will you do on breaks at work? FINALLY PURSUE A HEALTHIER LIFE. YOU WILL KEEP DEADLY POISON OUT OF YOUR BODY…AND OUT OF THE BODY OF LOVED ONES. YOU WILL BREATHE EASIER, ENJOY FOOD MORE AND SAVE MONEY….and likely, live a longer, healthier life to enjoy with loved ones.

I’ve been around smokers all my life. I never thought too much about it…I just knew that some of my loved ones smoked. As a child, I was in closed rooms and cars with loved ones. As an adult, the same. Only until recently when laws have changed and thoughts about smoking have changed, have I enjoyed a completely smoke-free existence indoors. I was never a smoker.

Second Hand Smoke and YOU
When asked why clients want to quit smoking, the vast majority of them want to be around for future events and for beloved children and grandchildren. They also say they are tired of it and tired of feeling unhealthy. Think of all the people you are around, especially children , that have either breathed in the secondhand smoke, been in a room or closed car with you or have just watched your habit over and over until it feels familiar. If there is anyone that looks up to you, is the smoking habit something that you want them to be affected by…or emulate?

I received a cancer diagnosis, despite never having smoked. It was quite shocking and surreal. I underwent a big operation and had 30 radiation treatments. Was my diagnosis a result of secondhand smoke? I don’t know, but are you willing to take that risk with yourself or the people you love? Even if there is a slight chance, why risk it?

Does Hypnosis Work to Quit Smoking?
Yes, but you will receive optimum results using hypnosis to quit smoking with a positive, committed attitude and the sincere desire to stop smoking. It is important to believe it is possible to quit smoking and really want to achieve it. If a person has this mindset, hypnosis is very effective. Those who are serious about quitting tend to do the things recommended in our sessions. The things I recommend are changing habits and listening to the CD I provide as reinforcement. Those who are not serious, don’t do anything. They make no changes and they don’t listen to the hypnotic recording. You must come with a serious desire to quit the smoking habit! You certainly can purchase a membership to a gym, but if you don’t go, then nothing will change.

Stopping smoking is a two part challenge. The first part is to deal with the withdrawal symptoms, which some people may experience. Hypnosis is highly effective for lessening or eradicating the withdrawal symptoms when you quit smoking.

The second part, which may be a bigger challenge for many people, is dealing with the triggers for smoking. Examples of the psychological challenges or triggers are if a person automatically lights up a cigarette when they drink a cup of coffee, while driving, drinking or after eating. They may not be aware of why they do this. Attaching their smoking habit to another daily habit is an unconscious behavior, produced by the subconscious mind that relates a certain activity strongly with smoking. In hypnosis, we speak directly to the subconscious mind, where all habits reside. We give your subconscious mind suggestions to act in new ways that support your desire to be a healthy, non-smoker.

My Healthy Non-Smoker Program
My program consists of three hypnosis sessions. During the first session, we discuss your reason for quitting, why you smoke and smoking facts. You commit to quitting and agree to pursue this goal to become a healthy non-smoker for life. During this session, you bring your cigarettes and smoking paraphernalia to discard. It is at this session that you become a healthy non-smoker and it is the first day of the rest of your life.

Session Two is a reinforcement session, where you can discuss any challenges, if any. It is solution and focus-oriented, reinforcing your commitment to the goal of a new identity as a healthy, non-smoker.

Session Three is for stress management strategies to keep you on the path of good health. Stress management is a useful skill for all life challenges, and one that will keep you pursuing healthier outlets for managing your stress. The complete three-session program also sends you a series of emails with tips, information and encouragement that will be delivered to your email box.

Motivation

Why would you use motivation?

  • For athletic performance
  • To achieve personal goals like exercise motivation
  • To have a better life experience
  • To achieve career goals like performance or promotions
  • To fulfill your life’s purpose
  • Because you’ve tried it alone
  • Your beliefs aren’t in alignment with your desires
  • You just don’t feel motivated to achieve your goal anymore

Motivation Explained

Motivation comes from within ourselves. It is our purpose or reason for doing something, whether that’s to launch a business or make changes to our exercise routine.  Motivation for anything  begins comes from our values and beliefs. When you have a strong sense of your personal values and beliefs (kindness towards others, for an example), this forms a basis from which your motivation can grow.

We all have different motivators. For some, they may include having a clear mission, wanting to help others and being inspired. For others, they may include personal power, career success and money. Neither is right nor wrong.  Many people find external motivators like money or perceived success less powerful than internal motivators that work in alignment with values.

An effective motivator that can help all of us is accountability. This means telling someone about your dreams and having them check in with you to see how you’re going.

My Personal Motivation to Be A Success Coach explained:

In my early 20s, I had severe anxiety attacks.  I not only didn’t know what they were, but none of the doctors I visited even suggested a solution to my issues.  I had every anxiety symptom you can find on a site:  TMJ, IBS, heart racing, sweaty palms, shortness of breath and so many more.  Sometimes I couldn’t leave the house and would sit on the couch shaking.  As a young Mom, I knew it that it was a time of my life that I should be enjoying.  Instead I felt sick whether it was a normal day or I was on a vacation.

When I was told over and over that I had no “medical” issue, I had to find something that solved my issue and gave me my life back.   I finally found ways in which to change my life experience.  It was at that time that I promised myself that if I ever was able to completely feel good again, that I would use the things I learned to help others.  I never wanted anyone to experience anything like I did.  I wanted to help them find answers.  That’s my personal motivation.

Reasons you may lack motivation:

  • You’re burnt out
  • You’re anxious or depressed
  • You have negative or limiting self-beliefs
  • You’re procrastinating
  • You’re WHY is unclear

What Hypnosis can do for you:

  • Help you reignite your own motivation
  • Address your obstacles
  • Give you tools to succeed
  • Form clear goals
  • Formulate action steps
  • Help you visualize what a life full of motivation will look like

How does it work?

Our initial visit is to discuss hypnosis and your intended outcome.  After I explain hypnosis and how it works, we do a hypnosis session.  You receive an MP3 for reinforcement.

There are two methods of making a Motivation appointment.  Call Tina at 570-253-0745 or email us.

Habits

HABITS:  IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT WILLPOWER

Contrary to what many people think, changing habits involves more than just willpower. Blaming or crediting willpower for our ability to adopt a new or break an old habit is unfair.

According to neuroscientists, the brain’s basal ganglia control habit formation. The basal ganglia are associated with subconscious or unconscious processes. When we perform an action over and over, it becomes deeply embedded in our brains. As a result, it takes significantly less effort to repeat that action than it would to choose a new one.

Changing habits requires us to make a conscious decision, a process performed in the prefrontal cortex of the brain. In order to change the way we do things, we need to be mindful, making conscious decisions and efforts (“willpower”) until the basal ganglia take over and we can focus on other things.

Once you repeat a pattern of behavior without conscious thought, you’ve created a new habit, which is now etched in your neural pathway. Willpower no longer enters into the equation.

ESTABLISH GOOD HABITS

When thinking about changing habits, we often focus on getting rid of our bad habits. Rarely do we think about good habits.  But we easily can incorporate good habits into our life.

HERE IS AN EXAMPLE:  Every night as I would set my alarm for morning, I would think about what time I would meet my first client and then move backward from there. ‘What time should I leave? What if there is traffic? If it’s snowing it may be worse … maybe I should leave earlier. How late can I get up and still make it on time? I may want to stop and get coffee … Will I have enough time? I want to have 20 minutes of mindful focus in the office before my client arrives.

Then one day I decided to create a new habit. The reward of doing this routine day after day has allowed me much more mindfulness and peace.

Every morning, I leave my house at least one hour before I meet with my first client, NO MATTER WHAT! No matter what happens, I have plenty of time and less stress.  The peace I feel is fabulous.

If you continue to do what you always have done, you will continue to get what you’ve always gotten.  So why make a new, positive habit?  For the reason just listed in the example….for you!  New, positive habits can help make your life easier and lessen the daily stress.

Confidence & Self-Esteem Hypnosis

Both confidence and self-esteem can be developed through hypnosis. It may take some time to build upon your current confidence levels.  We provide you with an MP3 hypnotic recording to reinforce our session.  Listen for at least 30 consecutive days.

Give yourself some time to develop good habits and help yourself feel confident.

If you have Low Confidence and Self-Esteem, you may experience some of these characteristics:

  • Social withdrawal
  • Anxiety and emotional turmoil
  • Lack of social skills
  • Bouts of sadness
  • Less social conformity
  • Eating disorders
  • Inability to accept compliments
  • An Inability to see yourself realistically…to be fair to yourself
  • Accentuating the negative
  • Exaggerated concern over what you imagine other people think
  • Self-neglect
  • Treating yourself badly but NOT other people
  • Worrying whether you have treated others badly
  • Reluctance to take on challenges
  • Reluctance to put yourself first or anywhere
  • Reluctance to trust your own opinion
  • Expecting little out of life for yourself
  • Unable to enjoy and relax in situations that you’d like to
  • As if you haven’t got a sense of direction in life

Is low confidence and self-esteem keeping you from living the life you’ve always dreamed of?

Many times my clients say they are sorry they wasted so much time NOT pursuing their goals.  Before they came, they perceived the roadblocks to their success as insurmountable.  After they achieve success, they realize that the suffering was needless and they not only achieve the desired outcome, but they are now equipped with tools to achieve more.  Whether you are looking to have more self-confidence for social relationships, your career or life in general, an increase of confidence will give you the ability to achieve more.

Suffering from low confidence and self-worth can be debilitating, but these qualities can both be developed with the help of confidence coaching. As a Coach, I come equipped with the tools and techniques to help you develop your confidence and self-belief. Confidence coaching is designed to help you raise your self image and create a positive outlook on life, starting from within. Coaching sessions will challenge your the current beliefs that you have about yourself, boost your self-esteem and help you build a strong and positive self-image.

How does it work?

The HYPNOSIS session is for you to establish the challenge we are working with and goals you have in mind.  Hypnosis works with the subconscious mind to achieve those goals and make necessary changes to the way you presently think, as well as for your present habits.  You get an MP3 to listen to for 30 days for reinforcement.

Initial Session $150
Subsequent Hypnosis Sessions $150 per hour

Supplemental Coaching

To supplement or as a standalone, you can choose coaching after your initial hypnosis session.  The coaching helps to keep you on track for your goals and keep you accountable and motivated.

You are the person that takes action steps towards the goals.  The amount of time it takes will depend on your dedication, commitment and how fast you achieve the steps to your goals.  Our coaching sessions are for organization and clarification of desired outcome.  A Hypnosis appointment and supplemental coaching package is the best way to keep your working towards your goals.

Twelve Week Half-Hour Coaching Sessions $750
