Peak Performance Level Elevated

When I was on the field, I felt hopeless.   It felt like I had a phobia of throwing overhand because my hand did strange things, regardless of what I did.   I felt like I wasn’t in control of my hand anymore when I was on the field.  My pitching coach, ‘Chief’ sent me to Polly because he believed she could help me take back my power, control my thoughts and beliefs including overcoming this fear.  SUCCESS at Backbone Builder: A gradual process via Mental Strength Training with Polly, led to my success of throwing overhand normal again.  I had success with ‘Coach P’ – I regained my confidence in my pitching abilities and mental focus.  I thank Polly for helping me burst through that hard time and believe in my abilities again.  She gave me key tools that led to my break-through that successfully elevated my Peak Performance level outcomes……Client of ‘Chief’ (Billy Gerald, Pitching Instructor), Sanbill Pitching Academy

Mark stop smoking success story

 

WOW! Why did I wait so long to see Polly and become a happy, healthy non-smoker for life?  After many years of being a pack a day smoker I am happy to share, Polly's smoking cessation program is like no other!  My first session - phase 1, with her included education of how the mind works (its functions in our behavior, beliefs and our thinking) and, preparation phase.  It totally prepared me to take charge of my subconscious mind.  I began making immediate positive, changes in my daily smoking habit (a very effective way of cutting down without feeling deprived).  I like the idea that it helped me to create needed changes in my first week in planning for my 2 upcoming hypnosis sessions the next week.  It also increased my understanding awareness of this deadly habit and effectively generated my desire for full awareness of my subconscious, perceived triggers.  Phase 1 included coping strategies and valuable tools that helped me to take action and HALT 'mind chatter'.  Phase 2 and 3 (answering questions and receiving hypnosis) were scheduled for the next week.  By the time I came back for my 2nd hypnosis sessions I was already confident and expected complete success.  My 1st of 2 hypnosis sessions went by so fast.  I felt so prepared and empowered because of Polly's easy manner, her unique prep phase and the education she gave me; helped me feel I was ensuring my success.  

Hypnosis with Polly Humphreys helped me create POWERFUL subconscious images of myself thinking, acting and believing, "I feel calm, pleased, healthy and successful".   I left there knowing without a doubt, "I am a happy, healthy non-smoker for life".   My 2nd hypnosis session, was fast, just as easy and, even more powerful.   My Truth: If you are willing to apply yourself and follow the individual plan that she creates with you for your personal success, you can expect to also be free from ALL tobacco products FOR LIFE.  Oh did I mention, you get a 24 page booklet filled with coping strategies and very practical tools.  Be sure to keep it for quick review when needed, as you well know, from time to time life brings unexpected stress and trials.....

Sports Performannce Enhancement: Fast Pitch Pitcher Overcomes Fear of Failure

Our 12 year old daughter has been training with Coach Polly for almost a year now.  My husband and I were referred to Coach Polly for Sports Performance Enhancement by our daughter's softball pitching coach after continuous struggles in game situations.

It was concluded by her pitching coach that our daughter had a fear of failure and extreme lack of confidence in her athletic abilities during competition.  Within our first two sessions with Coach Polly, our daughter was able to pinpoint what events had occurred that led to her fear of failure and lack of confidence.  ‘Coach P’ has given our daughter numerous tools that she can use; in athletics, and at school as well when she starts to feel scared, nervous, anxious, and for reducing or eliminating fears.

With each session, ‘Coach P’ has taught our daughter how the mind works and problems are opportunities to grow and learn from.  These problems previously lead to extreme anxiety; however now, our daughter knows how to trust herself and use her faith to overcome her fears and obstacles.  The tools given to our daughter to use when she feels doubt starting to creep into her mind are simple and inconspicuous.

Coach Polly at Backbone Builder, has helped our daughter overcome so many obstacles in her young athletic career.  Just four months ago our daughter was not able to pitch an entire inning of a softball game.  She is now, successfully pitching 5 innings and loving the game of softball again.  Thank you Coach Polly for all you have done to help put the smile back on our daughter's face while playing the sport she loves!     Clayton

Linda Amos – Emotional and Physical Wellness

Being an R.N. and knowing what traditional Western medicine has to offer for autoimmune diseases helped me decide on a different treatment path when I was diagnosed with M.S.

I opted for acupuncture and a natural therapeutic regime which kept my symptoms to a manageable level but after seeing Polly at Alternative Wellness & Beyond for hypnosis to get down to the root cause of my illness,  my symptoms decreased dramatically and even my acupuncturist was impressed when my baseline assessment improved. Internally I achieved a more peaceful balance of my emotions and an assessment of my core values helps me to make decisions that are right for me.               Linda Amos
