Great Communication is the Key to Great Success!

As a life coach and clinical hypnotherapist, I work with quite a variety of clientele, but my specialty “niche”  is Communications Coach.

You might be surprised to learn that communication issues are at the root of many challenges you face. When you develop strong communication skills, you can blast through obstacles and power forward to your goals!

Even when I work with chronic pain clients, the issue boils down to how they are communicating with their own bodies. Changing the way we communicate – send and receive information – within ourselves can even change the way we perceive and deal with pain.

Think about which of these would you like to achieve:

  • Improve a relationship
  • Eliminate a bad habit
  • Achieve professional advancement
  • Create loyal employees and/or loyal clients
Communications coaching is the key to success for all of the above!
– Having strong communication skills means knowing how to really focus and listen, as well as knowing how to get people to listen to you and how to communicate your message clearly.
– Having strong communication skills also means honing the ability to analyze, interpret and perceive information rationally and appropriately.
This does not come as easily as you may think. We tend to easily develop bad habits of making assumptions, jumping to conclusions, over-reacting and thinking with our emotions rather than our mind.
We actually have to work hard, with great effort and conscious thought, to change and improve these behaviors.
And that’s my specialty! As a Communications Coach, I can help you improve your internal and external communication processes so you can catapult toward your personal or professional goals.

A Powerful Way to Realize Your Goals!

From “The Self-Hypnosis Diet” by Steven Gurgevich, Ph.D. and Joy Gurgevich:

“An experiment was conducted at the University of Wisconsin in which three groups of people were asked to shoot baskets on a basketball court, and each group’s scores were recorded.

All three groups were asked to return in one week to repeat the “hoop shoot.”

Group 1 was asked to practice 20 minutes a day.

Group 2 was told not to practice.

Group 3 was asked not to practice physically but to spend 20 minutes a day imagining that they were throwing the basketball through the hoop.

The group that was asked to physically practice improved their score by 24%.

The group that did not practice showed no improvement.

The group that practiced through imaging improved their scores by 23%!”

The implications of the above excerpt are well-known to the top performing athletes in the world. Most pro-athletes already understand the benefits they can achieve with self-hypnosis or guided visualization by a professional hypnotist.

You can achieve peak performance in many areas of your life by using hypnotherapy as a solution-focused therapy to create long-lasting transformation in a relatively short period of time.

Hypnotherapy can be extraordinarily beneficial for…

*Increasing endurance
* Improving performance
* Alleviating anxiety
* Overcoming mental obstacles
* Removing negative thoughts
* Improving focus and concentration
* Positive re-framing of past negative experiences
* Increasing motivation & determination
* Adjusting body weight
* Removing unhealthy habits
* Enhancing teamwork

You don’t have to be a world-class athlete to tap into the power of hypnosis.  Hypnosis is a mainstream approach that is utilized by people from all walks of life. Imagine how much better your life will be when you  let go of  limiting beliefs and habits, and open your mind to new insights and creative ideas. 

To get started, you can find a lot of free self-hypnosis information, videos and recordings by searching on-line. To see real, long-lasting benefits, though, you will want to experience a personalized approach outlined by a professional hypnotherapist. I am a certified advanced hypnotist and I’d be happy to discuss your challenges and goals, and show you how to shed your limits and succeed beyond your wildest dreams!

Wishing you joy and abundance,

Second Set of Dates for “RELEASE WEIGHT AND FEEL GREAT” Workshop!!!

NEW EVENT DATES!!! REGISTER NOW!

If you could not make it to the workshop in March, I am holding a second workshop from 6 to 8 pm on three Mondays in a row: April 9, 16, and 23.

Are you ready to be healthier, more vital, and happier in your body? 

REGISTER HERE for my awesome “Release Weight and Feel Great!” workshop. 

Location is Farmer’s Insurance Conference Room at 900 Granby Street, Norfolk.

(Thank you, Janet McCaskey, our fabulous Farmer’s agent, for making this workshop possible!)

Wondering why the title is “release weight” instead of “lose weight”? Well, no one likes the thought of losing something. We tend to psychologically hang onto stuff tightly when we feel in peril of losing it. So the very phrase “lose weight” is creating a conflict because now your mind – your psyche – wants to hang onto it even more! However, when you release weight, it’s because you are willingly and lovingly letting go of it. It’s free to go. No regrets. 

If you’ve tried and “failed” with diets and weight loss before, this is like nothing you’ve ever experienced.

  • I will show you what is wrong with most diet plans and what the one thing is you must do to ensure long-term results (and you probably haven’t done it). 
  • We’ll be doing a powerful guided imagery exercise – the same technique used by peak performing athletes and pilots! 
  • You’ll also learn the SWAP Technique – you’ll love it! – that will have an immediate effect on transforming your habits and catapulting you forward towards your image goals! 

This workshop is limited to twenty participants. Please register ASAP, but only if you are absolutely ready to make a powerful and long-lasting transformation for yourself!  You must be personally and fully committed in order to successfully reach your image goals.

Don’t do this because you’re trying to please someone else. 

Do this because you love yourself and this is a gift you are ready to give to yourself! 

The regular workshop fee is $199. Register for the April workshop by March 20 and get a $50.00 Super-Saver discount!  With the discount, that’s only $149. 

Super-Duper-Super-Saver: Register with a buddy by March 20 and it’s only $99 EACH!!!

(Just select “2 Participants” from the drop-down payment menu)

 REGISTER NOW

If you still are not ready to commit, here are a few questions for you to think about privately, to help you make your decision:

 – What does retaining weight prevent you from doing?

 – How would releasing weight be positive for your life?

 – How crucial is it to you right now to improve your health and body image?

 If you are unsure and have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me at info@selformations.com or call me at (757) 407-2653. I promise to reply right away!

Yours truly,

Life Coach Victoria

The full workshop fee is $199. Register by March 15 and get a $50.00 Early Bird discount! 

With the discount, that’s only $149.  It’s a 4-hour workshop all total, so that’s $37.25/hour. A super affordable investment in improved health and happiness!

For further perspective on cost, my individual fee is $150/hour, so this group workshop gives you the opportunity to benefit EXACTLY as you would in my individual sessions, but you are saving $451. That’s huge!

Lose weight without dieting!

Are you excited about losing weight and being healthier this year?  I hope so, because I have great news for you: Weight loss does not have to mean dieting! In fact, most diets are so unnatural, it’s impossible to stick with them long-term and keep the weight off.

A healthier way of shedding excess weight involves making small, smart changes to your eating habits.

With these changes you naturally and easily become more aware of how many calories you are taking in versus how many calories you are burning off, so you can choose your food, your portion sizes and your activity level.

This puts YOU in total control of YOU!  Isn’t that how it should be?!

Here are a couple of tidbits to get you moving forward in the right direction so you can be healthier without feeling deprived:

Web MD has a very informative slideshow of tips to slim down without dieting.

Also a good read: Setting Realistic Weight Loss Goals.

Need a coach to help you keep your body image goals on track and give you loads of support and encouragement? Yay! I’m your gal! Check out my website and Contact me – I’d love to talk to you!

Hugs and Happiness,

Power Quote For The Day

“You can have anything you want – if you want it badly enough. You can be anything you want to be, do anything you set out to accomplish if you hold to that desire with singleness of purpose.”
~ Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States

President Lincoln’s words hold true today. In fact, his quote very neatly sums up the core components of life coaching: identify your desire, then with  determination and perseverance, push past the obstacles, keeping your eyes on your goal.

The most successful athletes, entertainers and business executives benefit enormously from life coaches. You can, too!

As a Life Coach, I can help you address your challenges head-on, so we can clear the way for you to move forward productively and with laser-focused “singleness of purpose” toward your vision.

My role is to assist and encourage you in a respectful, non-judgmental manner. I listen intently, ask the right questions, and give open and honest feedback.

A great coaching experience will bring out the very best in you, helping you perform at your highest level personally, professionally, and financially, so you can experience abundance in the wonderful game of life!

Are you ready for a powerful partnership that focuses entirely on your visions, goals and desires? Are you ready to break through limitations and have a life that’s even happier, healthier and more abundant than it is now?

I want your life to be exceptional! Visit my website for more info on Life Coaching or go ahead and contact me so we can set up a “get acquainted” call. Let’s start talking!

All my best,

Life Coach Victoria, your Motivation Muse

Yay! My New, FABULOUS Web Site is Up and Running!

Oh, how I have waited for this day!

After many long months of study, I’ve completed my advanced hypnotherapy certification and opened my business, SELFormations. (Which is why it’s been a while since I’ve posted here, but I’m back, baby!)

Here’s my brand spankin’ new web site:

www.selformations.com

Please bookmark it and visit it regularly, because I will be uploading lots of FREE stuff like motivational MP3’s and E-books.

I’d love to get feedback about my web site. Would you believe, I created the entire site all by myself? And I have NO web building experience. (Alright, I cheated a little. I used Go Daddy’s Website Tonight feature!)

So let me know – what do you love best about the site? What do you want to see that isn’t there yet?

I want to help you have a vibrant life, and that means I can’t have a stagnant web site! So I’m going to keep adding and changing content, and YOUR INPUT is necessary – so don’t be shy, please give me your ideas and opinions!

Hope you are having a good week, staying joyful and staying warm!

Best wishes from your Motivation Muse!
