My name is Brandy Brandon and I am a full time student at Dixie State University finishing my bachelor’s degree in Psychology with plans to go on and receive a PhD in Neuropsychology.
In November of 2013, my father sent me a link to a presentation by a man from the Certified Hypnotherapy Training School in Farmington, Utah. I put it off continually believing it would be a waste of my time, I finally gave in the first part of January 2014. After I listened to it, I was intrigued so I looked around on the website and learned that Dennis was currently holding school sessions right here in St George, so I called him up immediately and asked him a few questions, then set up a time to go and attend one of the classes to see what I thought. I was there for one day, and was immediately hooked. I was so amazed by what had taken place and in the short amount of time, that I knew it was for me.
I love psychology and how it affects the brain however I couldn't’t see myself helping people by sitting in an office session after session accomplishing very little. So when I saw Dennis work through an hour and a half session and seeing a noticeable change in the client when he was done, I knew that I was going to become a hypnotherapist.
I got home and went online to research all of the schools across the country to see how they compared to the Certified Hypnotherapy Training school. There was no other school like this one. The professionalism of the school was far beyond any of the others. The amount of training you receive and the availability of instructors to help you out were just a few things that stood out.
I signed up, but I was only able to attend a few classes while Dennis was in St George so I took the books and began reading Spiritual Mind Management in between the classes I was able to attend. As well I listened to White CD’s for weight management and Self Esteem. I was not prepared for what happened to me. The book gave me a well thought out and easily understood explanation of the process of Spiritual Mind Management, (SMM is being re-branded to Positive Mind Management). And the CD’s began drawing the issues I was ready to deal with. When I was finally able to attend the summer courses, it worked well for me because I was able to attend the courses on line from 400 plus miles away.
I met so many people, made so many friends and witnessed many transformations including my own right there in the classroom. It was hard work and Dennis was a tough instructor making sure that we knew the material, but more importantly were comfortable using it. He stands behind his process and for good reason, it really works.
I finished my training and became certified through ACHE. I immediately started to have clients call and set up appointments. They were hearing that the amount of time it took to work through your issues was very minimal. I had a client who was finally able to confront the pain in her feet and located the reason for it. Another client is a well-respected lawyer who needed help with his lack of focus only to clear issues he didn't’t even know had existed. A lady who learned of her adoption was able to see things differently when she was done. Working with spiritual mind management techniques has allowed my son with autism to see people in a different way than he had before, becoming less offended in social situations and being able to make good friends.
I am a single mom raising 3 teenage boys, one who has autism and an 8 year old daughter. This program allowed me to have more time with my kids as well as help them in their lives. Dennis has continued to be a mentor for me even after my certification was finished which helps with my confidence to continue to do this great work and help people everywhere.
Some Key Principles of How Hypnotherapy Works!
Weeding the Garden of Your Mind of Double Mindedness ‘Thinking Errors’
Have you ever asked, “How can anyone do such a thing to someone else, or to themselves?” Or, “Why do I keep doing what I do, even when I know I ought not to be doing it?” What are the keys to real behavioral change? How would learning the skills of behavioral modification being offered here at CHTS change yours and your loved ones lives? What if you could teach others how to control unwanted emotions, and be free of behaviors such as over eating, smoking, incessant video game playing, or pornography? What if you could help others enjoy increased self-esteem and personal self-confidence, enhanced sports performance, teaching them how to be free of fears and phobias, and enjoy pain control techniques reducing pain levels?
We want to explain a key principle of positive behavioral modification and change as an example of our course work. We teach students and clients how to overcome double mindedness. James 1:8 says, “a double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” We propose the double mindedness spoken of here is the incongruent predominant thought thinking errors that we have logged in our subconscious mind, that are in opposition to the goal achieving desires that we have in our conscious mind. When we have incongruent thinking and opposite beliefs at our conscious and subconscious states of mind it creates opposing forces within us, “instability”. We want to move forward, achieve new goals, and be our best self, consciously, and yet as we hold opposing incongruent thoughts and beliefs in the subconscious mind, we experience inhibitions, hesitations, and we procrastinate. We are unstable in all our ways!
There is an area between the two minds called the Critical Faculty or Critical Factor which is the area of our belief systems. It is a filter to the subconscious mind. When we do conscious critical, analytical, logical thinking, and we accept a thought as being right, true and correct for us, we allow it to pass through this critical factor filter into our subconscious functions of imaginations, memories, and emotions. Once the thought belief is in the subconscious it will generate a behavior. The extreme to which we demonstrate the behavior depends on how much amplification of our imagination we apply to the thought belief, and how much justifying, validating data, we can come up with in our memories to prove to ourselves that we are right in our chosen belief. The amount of amplification and justification is the amount of emotional content we experience as our feelings, driving the behavior, because we tend to behave the way we feel.
The “KEY” is that it requires hypnosis, trance, or pondering, (all three are synonymous to us) to penetrate the critical factor filter barrier to access and understand the incongruent thinking errors being held in the subconscious. It requires skill and training in trance to know which hypnotic level (because there are five observable hypnotic trance states that we utilize in hypnotherapy), is going to be most useful to facilitate the therapeutic processes we wish to employ for a specific client’s needs and goal achievement.
Hypnotherapy is a general term which is descriptive of three major categories that we teach at Certified Hypnotherapy Training School. They are: Suggestion Hypnotherapy, Clinical Hypnotherapy, and Positive Mind Management Hypnotherapy. The hypnotherapist chooses the hypnotherapy protocols that are going to work best to challenge and change the newly found thinking errors. Once these thinking errors are challenged and changed appropriately and brought into alignment with conscious goal driven thinking, the client in now in a state of being single-minded, aligned. Now people move forward in life fulfilling their dreams and goals more rapidly than ever before imagined possible. We like to say that we make behavioral changes very rapidly in these processes, at the speed of thought.
We use the metaphor that what we are doing is weeding the garden of our mind. Let’s say we have a major thinking error, a big weed in our garden. (I am not good enough, or smart enough, or capable enough, or pretty or handsome enough, and so forth.) In conscious or cognitive therapy, we may whack away at the leaves above the ground, we may break off branches, and with sufficient time, we might even chop it down to the ground with enough logical and analytical reasoning. But, without hypnosis or trance access to the subconscious root and the training to know how to actually pull the root all the way out, when the individual experiences a similar stimulating event to the one that generated the behavior producing thought processes in the first place, the root is stimulated again and the emotions simply grow back, and so does the behavior. Such is the case with yo-yo dieting. So a major key to behavioral modification hypnotherapy is the ability to get to the root of problem thinking errors through trance access of the subconscious and overcoming double minded instabilities!
