Hypnosis Eliminates Unhealthy Issue

 

 

I had a life-long battle with weight control.  Like other people, I tried various methods and “diets” and would gain the weight back.  I discovered Polly Humphreys at Alternative Wellness & Beyond.  She helped me discover deep-seated issues I held in my subconscious mind.  These were road blocks to my success with weight loss.  I had tried Hypnosis before, but it was a onetime event with no follow-up.

Because of my visits with Polly, I can tell you, I have a great sense of freedom.  Freedom from cravings and unhealthy relationships.  As Polly says, “I have a right to be happy.”  I am pursing that happiness with a joyful heart.  M. Fowler… Greensboro, NC

Client Took Back Control from Addiction

 

I had suffered over 20 years with a shameful addiction that had consumed my life.  It hurt the one person I loved more than any.  I reached out to Polly Humphreys because, my mind and heart were now locked in symmetry.  I was determined and committed to face my fears and accept my future I desperately wanted.  Polly provided me with a comfortable, trusting environment.  That allowed me to lay everything out for her to help me make the needed subconscious changes.  She was my professional guide that led me to my success!

 

It was through Hypnosis that I was able to journey to the depths of my inner mind.  It was there I made a truthful stand and took back the control I had so longed for.  Being able to know and vividly experience first-hand, the moment I stripped my addiction of its previous powerful hold over me, is something I will always remember.  G… Asheville, NC

Child overcomes thumbsucking

I would like to say what a positive experience we had with Polly at Alternative Wellness & Beyond located in Sugar Mountain, NC when we came up to her office from Greensboro.  My 9 year old daughter was having a problem with being unable to stop sucking her thumb.  Her dentist told her if she didn’t stop sucking her thumb by her next visit, she would require a metal device in her mouth to stop this unhealthy problem causing pressure on her teeth; kept them from coming up correctly.  Maddie actually brought up the idea of seeing a hypnotist.  We found Polly’s office to be lovely, very relaxing and inviting.  Polly spent a lot of time helping my daughter get comfortable with her and the process of what they would be doing to bring about desired success.  She answered all our questions.  During the hypnosis segment of her session, we sat outside the open door so we could easily hear and peak in.  Polly empowered my daughter discussing her inner strength and helped her to understand (and believe) she was in control of her actions and, her decision to stop sucking her thumb.  We are thrilled with the results she had with Polly.  Maddie successfully stopping sucking her thumb.  A great bonus from hypnosis with Polly: Maddie also overcame fear of heights, being on/in lakes and oceans and conquered her former fear of being around bees…..

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
