Mindbody Matters Hypnosis
- make powerful changes in your life -
Are you looking to make changes in your life? If so, Tina Beattie is ready to help.
She has dedicated her life to helping people make changes big and small, from quitting smoking to losing weight, managing stress to dealing with trauma – any aspect of your life where you feel truly stuck.
Her business, Mindbody Matters Hypnosis and TIR, taps into a variety of treatments to help people make changes in their lives, including hypnosis, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Traumatic Incident Reduction [TIR].
Tina is a hypnotist but if you’re picturing a stopwatch swinging as you slowly fall into a deep trance, think again. This is modern hypnosis, done simply and powerfully with the nuances of her voice. Her techniques, honed by 11 years in the business, can help you achieve a state of deep relaxation that opens your mind to change. Her manner is calm and soothing, and her office in the historic Denne Building on Davis Drive and Main radiates tranquility with lofty ceilings and white bead board walls.
When a client comes in, Tina helps them get comfortable in the reclining chair with a blanket, and then uses the power of her voice to talk him or her into deep relaxation.
“Hypnosis brings the conscious and subconscious mind closer together,” she says.
Our most deep-seated issues come rooted in the subconscious, she says. For example, many people started smoking in their youth because they think it’s cool. Forty years later, their subconscious still thinks it’s cool. Hypnosis calms the conscious mind, allowing change in the subconscious.
“I have really high results helping people quit smoking,” she says. It only takes three sessions, in just two visits. She tells people to come back if they don’t quit, and usually never sees them again.
When a client is hypnotized, Tina uses Neuro-Linguistic Programming [NLP] techniques, such as mimicking the client’s movements in a subtle yet supportive way.
“People use it in sales because you build up a really fast rapport with someone,” says Tina, who is a qualified NLP practitioner. “A salesman may emulate you and you wouldn’t even know he was using NLP. But you may all-of-the-sudden feel really comfortable with that person, like you’ve know them for a long time.”
When you know someone really well, you may find you take bites at the same time when eating together. “That’s rapport you only get when you’re really close to somebody. NLP builds that immediately,” says Tina.
Voice regulation is another NLP technique. If someone is yelling at you, you raise your voice to their level, and then lower it down, Tina says. If that doesn’t work, you raise it again. Eventually they’ll follow.
Traumatic Incident Reduction
Tina is also a certified facilitator of Trauma Incident Reduction [TIR], which she uses to help people deal with things like civil war, rape, the loss of a parent or child, divorce and post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD].
“Trauma builds a bubble inside us,” says Tina. “That’s why people can be affected by trauma right through their lives. They bubble it off and repress it, and it lives inside them.”
With TIR, Tina leads clients in recounting their traumatic incident, over and over again, until at last the bubble is broken and the trauma loses its hold. “It’s very powerful stuff,” she says.
