Connie and Michael Brannan use a unique blend of Hypnosis and NLP techniques in their work as Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapists. "But just what is that?" you might ask. NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. A short description: it is a type of unconscious communication (hypnosis) but it is not traditional hypnotherapy--it's a fascinating open-eyed interactive type thing involving custom designing new feelings, responses, and beliefs and installing them. It's been called "hypnosis on steroids."
It uses techniques involving words and language to actually alter your neurology (mood), and allows you to change, remove, and replace behaviors and feelings as desired. With NLP, you choose your desired states of well-being, mental, emotional and physical. Trust us, it's cool. And it's use will result in an increased ability for you to create a better life for yourself!

Need a new life direction?
"Good morning Connie, thought I would give you a quick update. I feel great, refreshed, and full of life. I really want to thank you for the sessions, it was truly mind changing. You moved me back into my life's direction. I really don't get frustrated or angry at myself anymore mainly due to a positive direction in my own self talk. You are an artist of a person's mind and soul. I am sure that I will utilize you in the future and won't hesitate to call when the need arises. Thank you!!!" --Brian Dawson, Woodinville, WA
"Connie Brannan has helped me change the way I think about myself and my life. I saw her primarily for help with weight loss, but I ended up realizing many other positive changes at the same time. I was surprised and so pleased with the lasting results of my sessions: ability to concentrate on the way I wanted to eat, improvement in my personal relationships, and a completely rejuvenated interest in life.
After 20+ years of severe depression, I was amazed to find that I was free of it after just a single session. I am so grateful that I had the good sense to see Connie, and I recommend her services to anyone who wants similar improvements in their life." --Karel Creason, Bellevue, WA.
"Hi Connie, I just want to let you know how GREAT I've been feeling since our appointment - thank you so much for disappearing that pesky "I'm not good enough" feeling. I'm so excited for our next session!!! :)" --G.C., Issaquah, WA.
"I went to Connie to get help with my entire outlook on life and myself. I visited her for 5 sessions including the consultation. She really was pretty fantastic! From the moment I met her she was very kind, non-judgmental, and super focused on my needs. She has been through a ridiculous amount of schooling for NLP and really knows how to speak to your unconscious. We worked on different aspects of my life for each session, and she even taught me how to do self-hypnosis to better myself continuously.
Some of the "games" she does with you and the process she takes you through may seem odd and feel weird at times! But honestly, just keep an open mind and follow her directions throughout her sessions! I have felt SO MUCH better since my sessions with Connie and I would recommend her to ANYONE who is experiencing ANY issue really. She customizes each session to what your desires are, whether it's weight loss, cigarettes, alcohol, depression, phobias......you name it! She is worth the $$ 🙂 " -- Andrea W., Bellevue, WA
"Thank you, wonderful Connie the magic maker!" -- Marcela Joy, Gig Harbor, WA
Karen Downer, of Renton, WA has fallen in love. With hypnosis. Watch, look, listen as she explains in her own words:
Marcela Kenevan, of Gig Harbor, WA says in her 5-Star Google Review of Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP:
“This works!!! I dubbed Connie “my fairy godmother” because I can’t believe how fast and easy and brilliant her techniques work. I went to her for severe anxiety, one session I was handling the challenges in my life without panic attacks. I went back for insomnia, after one session I was sleeping like a sweet little creature curled up in pillows. There have been other side benefits of my work with her that include confidence and getting my sense of humor back. I highly respect this woman – her integrity, her talents, her heart and how effective her work has been in my life. I can not say enough about how easy, natural and powerful hypnosis and NLP are. If you have tried everything, stop struggling and go see Connie!" --Marcela Kenevan, Gig Harbor, WA
"I was at a proverbial crossroads in my life and knew it was time to make some changes, examine my ambitions & goals and move bravely forward into my future – perhaps an entirely new future. However, before I could do that, I needed to release some patterns & beliefs that had been holding me back.
When I discovered Mindworks, I suspected it could be ideal for my needs. One consultation with Connie and I knew I had found the perfect place and the perfect person to help me. I was immediately at ease with Connie. Her ability to compassionately and skillfully blend techniques of NLP and hypnosis allow the client to discover solutions to their own issues and problems. I trust her. I believe in her and the tools that she passionately & masterfully uses to guide you to your own truth." -- Kerry D., Kent, WA.
They are getting that slim healthy body at last, and "it was so easy":
"It's an astonishing transformation! I'm so happy! I'm so grateful." -- K.C. Bellevue, WA.
"I have been committed to lose weight for my health for years. However, the actual first step was almost impossible. So before I tried more radical methods, I thought I would try hypnosis.
Connie Brannan, and Mindworks Hypnosis worked wonders. The day after my first session, new behaviors emerged and became habits. The amazing thing is – it was so easy.
Late night cravings – gone.
Drinking 8 glasses of water/day – new habit.
Portion control – easy.
A real desire for healthy foods – a new habit.
Feeling full with the right amount of food –
a new feeling.
Neuro Linguistic Hypnosis works and fast. I have been losing a consistent 2.5 pounds per week. In the first six weeks, I’ve lost 18 pounds and counting." --Cynthia Sullivan, COO of a local Bellevue company, Bellevue, WA
Update: Cynthia has lost 50 pounds now!
Tessa Mercer of Maple Valley, WA reports: "I've lost 13 pounds in two weeks!"
"My clothes are falling off me!" Laura S., Kent, WA.
...And here's one that makes me so happy as well:
Just wanted to thank you again for your wonderful help. I've lost 40# in 4 months, and I feel confident that I'm going to lose at least 40 more. It's truly remarkable what a few easy sessions with you have done for my life.
As a health care worker, I've always known healthy diet and exercise were key to losing weight, but I never seemed motivated to seriously make those long term lifestyle changes. I grew so obese that I even considered surgery. But the risks scared me, so I decided to try calling you instead.
Even after one session, everything changed. I found myself craving healthy foods, appropriate portions, and daily exercise. My sweet tooth and chip obsession disappeared overnight. My self esteem skyrocketted. I finally knew I could conquer my lifelong struggle with my weight. It's been months since I've seen you and yet I'm still right on track with my goals.
Hypnosis is easy and it truly works. You've changed my life. Thank you!" --E, Seattle, WA.
"Hello Mind Transforming Wizard! Connie, you’re again amazing. The small tune up was just want I needed. …after a while I just didn’t ever crave sweets and frankly I just ignore them all together. It’s crazy, I just pass them by. Cheers! and here’s to the good life." --Brian, Seattle, WA
"VERY good experience! I was astonished how well it works. How you can get into the mind like that and change it around so easily. It's just amazing to me. I highly recommend Connie. I think she's wonderful. She's easy. She's very happy, and that makes it an easy, easy session. I have noticed, and so has my husband, that I am calmer! No heated discussions about anything. Also, I have no sugar cravings, whatsoever. NONE AT ALL! Which I'm amazed. I don't want sugar! I'm drinking more water, and I feel better with drinking more water. So, I have to thank Connie for that. It's pretty amazing." -- Shelli W., Wilkeson, WA
Her 5-Star review of Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP on Google: "I LOVE CONNIE..ITS AMAZING WHAT SHE CAN DO...SHE HAS HELPED BEYOND WORDS CAN SAY...VERY UPLIFTING AND SWEET.. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER !!!! SHE REALLY CARES ABOUT HER CLIENTS...ITS A COMFORT TO KNOW... I KNOW I WILL GO BACK !! NO MORE CRAVINGS...ALOT LESS STRESSED...MORE CALM THANK AGAIN CONNIE..IT WAS A PLEASURE."-- Shelli W., Wilkeson, WA

Successful weight loss, with hypnosis & NLP!
Success Story, Nicole of Seattle, WA. Here's what Nicole has to say about Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP:
"I cannot even begin to say all I want to say about Connie and the work she does at Mindworks Hypnosis. I’ve worked with Connie on a couple different occasions, and she has changed my life completely. I went to her for my lack of energy and enthusiasm for working out and losing weight. I’ve lost 50lbs and am now 10lbs from my goal!" –Nicole, Seattle, WA.
"I will have you know I've lost 30 lbs. Girl, you are my absolute idol!" --Lisa B.
"I'm not so glued to the food!" -- Liz, Redmond, WA.
"Hi Connie, Just had to send along this spread of the party I was at last night. All of the things I find the hardest to resist! Meats, cheeses, bread, crackers, nuts. It was so nothing to me! I didn’t have ONE THING! And the best part was I didn’t WANT one thing!
Goodbye, Food Cravings.
It’s just so amazing to me. I am sure it’s “another day at the office” for you but, for me…oh my goodness it was so awesome to not obsess over having it or not…wow. Thank you!!!" – Lori H., Mercer Island, WA
"I don’t crave ice cream at all now! Or chocolate. I am in shock!!!"-- Saliha B., Issaquah, WA.
"I am empowered. Feel great and NEVER , EVER desire chocolate!" Carol Haugen, Greater Seattle, WA
"Dear Connie: Thank you so much for working with me to help me lose weight. I had just one session, and the positive effects are nothing short of amazing! The cravings that so plagued me are just gone! I feel better and have more energy and just feel more positive since I am not constantly telling myself no. I did not realize the energy I was expending either refusing certain foods, or feeling bad after having eaten them! I cannot wait for our next session. I wish I had found you earlier as I would have saved myself so much grief and disappointment. Thank you for sharing this life altering experience with me." -- Fondly, Monica Anderson, Bellevue, WA.
"I love hypnosis...my knee cracking, painful problem is GONE. I feel a foot taller. I feel thinner. I feel lighter. I feel like a superstar!...Go see Connie! She's magical!" -- Nicole, Seattle, WA.
Vicki Clinton of Bellevue, WA, has lost 77 pounds in 5 months, going from a size 16 to a size 8. Here's her report and a video:
"My name is Vicky Clinton and I came and saw Connie at the end of July 2016, because I had health issues. I saw what it did to my family with me not being healthy. I made a decision that I’m going to get healthy in a way that I can maintain that same lifestyle from here on out. A neighbor of mine, who’d seen Connie in the past, she recommended that I come and see her.
I did, and that was the best thing -- best decision I have made. Since then I have lost 77 pounds! And I'm feeling well.
I eat what I want to eat. I’m not depriving myself of my favorite foods. I just find I’m not eating as much because I get full faster. We go out to eat quite a bit. I’m still able to maintain the weight loss, continue to lose. I feel wonderful, feel healthy, happy. This is the best thing. I would recommend it to anyone.
I cannot tell you how good I feel. It’s been years since I felt this good. When I started with this, I was in a size 16 pants and I’m now in a size 8. It’s continuing to go down and I cannot be happier and I know I couldn’t feel better than what I do right now.
I owe Connie a great big thank you! I'm just very thankful that my neighbor came and let me know about Connie and her experience. Thank you." -- Vicky Clinton, Bellevue, WA. Jan 2017.
"I've been loving the results and new freedoms from my first round of NLP: 10 pounds gone, much less stress in my life, and I'm saving a ton of money at the grocery store. Yay me! People have been asking me what's up with the changes and I send them your way." -- K. Dolan, Seattle, WA
Cindi, of Kirkland, is noticing healthy changes unfolding.
"I'm feeling great! In the last couple of weeks I've lost five pounds. And I don't really feel like I've been "trying," which is great! Here's what I'm noticing:
• I've been waking up in the morning, and I have lots of energy
• I'm not focused on food, which I think is really awesome for me, because that's always been a big focus.
• I'm not eating sugar, which is a huge thing! I've really seen the differences in that. My skin isn't breaking out. And I don't have headaches, and that's a huge thing. Because I always felt like I had allergies that were food related. I'm starting to eliminate all of that processed sugar stuff.
• No cravings for fast food whatsoever. I can drive by fast food and I'm not getting any of that, which is really great!
• I'm noticing that I'm starting to incorporate healthy foods into my diet more easily, automatically. In the past was if I didn't feel like making dinner, I would be thinking about where can I go to pick up something to eat quick. Now, what I'm doing is going into the fridge: "OK, well, I've got some veggies and I could do a stir fry." and I'm whipping up a meal and I'm satisfied with it!
• Another interesting thing, is that my portions are minimal. Just regular sized portions, and I'm not hungry after I eat. I'm done! I just make my meal and I'm satisfied. And sometimes I'm even making too much food. I put it away and have something for leftovers.
So, it's been really good! I can definitely tell that there's a shift happening for me. For sure! I do recommend Connie. I was one of those people that researched everything to death! I wanted to make sure that this was going to work for me. I came in and I met with Connie and I felt very comfortable. I felt in sync with Connie. And I wouldn't do it if I didn't feel comfortable with the person doing this process. Connie made the process really easy and simple." -- Cindi, Kirkland, WA.
Here's a video testimonial to add to the pile: "I feel like a whole new person!" -- Stacy Lenny, Seattle, WA. Watch. She has more to say about how she's changing:
And More testimonials:
"I experienced the most wonderful shift regarding my weight. You said something during the hypnosis that has allowed me to feel much more in touch with my true desires and beliefs about my weight. I feel the change and it has a wonderful ease about it. So I just wanted to let you know and to tell you how much I appreciate your work!" -- C., Bellevue, WA
“I lost 4 pounds the first week since our hypnosis session!” -- Ms. J., Woodinville
"I've lost 3 pounds in the past week since our session. I no longer feel the need to clean my plate." -- Marilyn H., Seattle, WA.

"Hi Connie, I'm happy to report that I am down 15 pounds, half of my weight loss goal... I can see for certain that I will accomplish it. Thank you and take good care." -- R.E., Seattle, WA
Here's a report from Kelli Zielinski of Seattle:
"-Dropped two pant sizes -Eating appropriate portions -Drinking more water -Increased motivation to exercise. I’ve lost weight, but the best part is not worrying so much about the weight. Instead, I’m focusing on healthy habits, and the rest is just working itself out. I feel like I’m in control and have the right priorities, rather than worrying so much about comparing myself to others. It’s a great feeling!" -Kelli Zielinski, Seattle, WA
Goodbye Chocolate Cake
Roberta Greenwood notices the positive changes, instantly. Here are her comments of change happening after a single session:
"I had one session with Connie at Mindworks Hypnosis and what I've noticed is I have the ability to make better choices. I have the ability to NOT go in and buy the cupcakes and the chocolate cake that I normally did. And I have a belief system that tells me I don't need that to be happy. And that is a remarkable change for me. I'm already feeling the shifts after one session."
"I feel wonderful! I know that my weight loss is happening. It's happening effortlessly. I have way more energy than I used to have. I'm really excited about the progress that I'm making. So I'm really grateful for the work Connie is doing with me.
So, I'm not tempted anymore by sweets, which has been my issue. I see it, and I kind of, nah, I shrug it off. I'm not interested in it. I no longer emotional eat! I'm just not interested, I don't even think about it.
So, it's not like I'm having to TRY, or try harder to lose the weight, it's just I don't think about it at all. I DO think about how great I feel now and how excited I am with where I am now. I'm excited that hypnosis really works for me." -- Storm Hofferbert, Seattle area
Update from Storm, Spring 2015, she's lost 40 pounds so far, and still workin' it! Good job, Storm!
"So excited to see you again - I've been feeling so great since our last session - I don't use a scale, but I can tell the way my clothes are fitting that I'm getting slimmer. I happily take the stairs at work between floors every time, I'm eating healthy and just the right amounts - all sorts of good stuff, and feeling great about it!! 🙂 It's working magnificently!! So - I'm excited to work on my next goal :)" - -Gina C., Seattle, WA
Judy, of Bellevue, WA, is noticing lots of positive changes with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP:
Connie is working with an OLYMPIC ATHLETE and improving her competitive performance!
"I have had amazing results with the work that we did...I bring all of who I am to my days now and most noticeably to my performance athletically. We had 2 races these last few weeks and each one I felt strong, confident, and able to compete with ease. I had fun...and was able to let go of anything that negatively would have impacted me before. I have felt the difference and I am very pleased with what we were able to accomplish. -- A.M. current Olympic Athlete
And an update from her:
Connie, I just want to thank you for being in my life!!! So much as happened over the last few months as I continue to follow my heart!!!! You have played a very major part in many of the advances I have been able to make in such a short period of time!!! THANK YOU!!!
Here's what other athletes have to say about success working with Connie:
"Hey there, wanted to let you know that I did qualify to run the Boston Marathon... Hypnosis does work!! Thanks again for all your help in accomplishing my goal." -- J. J., Issaquah, WA.
"I've been playing some terrific golf!" -- Paul, Seattle, WA.
"...She raced her first race yesterday. Last night she asked me to e-mail you today and thank you for your "self hypnosis" tips you gave her. She said they really worked and she felt really good. So good in fact that she really smoked it!! Her coaches are really impressed with her, her great focus, maturity and ability. Anyway, I wanted to let you know that she asked me to give you a great big "Thank You" for helping her." -- Email from the Mom of an 2018 Olympic hopeful.
"Hi Connie!! I actually have made improvements, I have dropped 5 shots off my scoring average which has allowed me to play on the varsity team and travel to the tournaments for both of our first two this spring! 🙂 The work we did has completely changed my attitude and I’m very grateful you helped :)" -- Amanda Beyke, Federal Way, WA.
"My life has done a complete turnaround since my time with you. ...I have not had a single (panic) attack since then. Driving is fun for me now and very relaxing. Thanks Connie, you changed my life completely for the better." --James, Seattle WA
Spider Fear Squashed Like a Bug!
"It's awesome, my home life is so much less stressful now! I've noticed that I hardly ever look for spiders anymore and that when I do find one all I wanna do is seek and destroy! Thank you so so so so so much again! You are amazing!" --Nicole V., Seattle, WA
Driving Fear Kicked to the Curb!
"I have been able to drive without a panic attack. I drove with my husband on local freeways. I was also able to help him drive from Bellevue to Arizona, which was a dream of mine, and he was so happy and grateful to have a break from driving! You really changed my life, and “thank you” does not seem enough to say. It was truly wonderful meeting you. I have bragged about you – in the best possible way – to some people here in the neighborhood – so much so, that you may get new clients who fly to Bellevue to meet with you! …You are an awesome Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapist…thank you for helping me." --Joy Epstein, Sun City, Arizona
A year later, Joy reports on her continuing positive changes--Confidence!
This photo testimonial says it all. Jennifer Hendrix standing in London. "I did it!" After 17 years of not flying, yes, she can!
"I really enjoy flying now and the freedom that is bringing me.
I have been very successful since having hypnosis/NLP sessions with you. In fact, in the past year, I have flown 7 times and am about to take my 8th flight! I even took a trip to Atlanta and back by myself. The work I did with you helped tremendously.
Prior to working with you, I had tried several different methods for controlling my fear of flying but none of them seemed to work. They all seemed like "tricks" or "Band-Aids" and didn’t truly help me to think differently about flying.
During my sessions with you, we went through all of the feelings I wanted to feel on a plane, such as happiness, calm, safety, etc. Through our sessions you helped to plant those thoughts into my subconscious and, for the first time, it worked! On my first flight and each subsequent one those “good” feelings now fill my head and the negative ones have been pushed out. I really wanted to thank you for all of your help. I feel so much more free now! P.S. We are off to Vegas, my third time this year." 🙂 – Chris Gibson, Seattle.
"I am a believer now. Eight flights and my anxiety level is pretty close to normal...The first flight after, as you probably imagine, I was a little skeptical that what we did (in one session) would change anything, but I have to say that it was probably the most pleasant flight I have had in years." --Paul, Issaquah, WA
"Just a brief note to thank you for what you've done for me. I'm feeling so confident, may just have to take a trip before January because I don't think I have the patience to wait to try out the new me." --Donna, Seattle, WA.
“Hi Connie, my husband and I flew from Seattle to Chicago, Chicago to Quebec, and Boston to Seattle – all within 2 weeks. I found that I felt much less stressed so that when we did board the plane I was able to just sit back, relax and enjoy the flight…. All the flights had turbulence and one flight was diverted due to bad weather in the Midwest and I handled the news without any fear or anxiety. Am actually looking forward to flying again soon. Thanks so much!” – Susan, Seattle, WA.
“Dear Connie, my flight to Chicago and back was literally the best flight of my life! I cannot thank you enough for the magic you’ve done! I feel so liberated and free! I cannot wait to fly again!” –Kristen Halley, Greater Seattle Area
"Hi Connie! You asked about positive changes. I did fine with no pre-flying anticipation or fear...I was calm and looking forward to the trip. The only time I felt an iota of nerves was finding out one of our connections was on a small commuter plane but once I found out there was a bathroom on the plane I was fine. I was much more concerned about my weak bladder than flying in a 24 seat plane!!! Thanks again for your help!" --Susan Wiseman, Seattle Metro area
Vivienne Dixon, of Bellevue, says: "Connie has given me my life back!"
Margot Hanson has made a trip a month since her transformation! And Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy has made more changes than that in her. Here is a video testimonial of success:
One session and Claustrophobia No More!
"Hello Connie, I just wanted to let you know that I went back to work today and rode up and down on the elevator about 6 times in a row with no nervousness or other symptoms at all. ( I did get a few funny looks, though!) Really, an amazing result! I am really thrilled.
I know of a couple particularly creaky and dubious elevators around town that I will make it a point to ride the next week and will let you know how that goes. However, based on my experience today I have no doubt that I will have no troubles at all. Thanks very much!" -- Jeff M., Bellevue, WA
"Thanks a bunch for all that you've done for me. I'm so impressed with your skills and am fascinated by NLP and hypnosis. Both topics are very much outside the realm of what I know, but are amazing in their ability (in talented hands) to deliver such positive change in a person's life." -- Diana, Bellevue, WA.
"Hi Connie, I am excited to share and say thank you. 🙂 I went through the car wash yesterday for the first time in ages! …once I entered I was fine and even wondered what was "the big deal?" Thank you thank you thank you. Wishing you an outstanding day!" -- Pam Fox, Gig Harbor, WA.
Fear of Heights - Conquered with Hypnosis
"Hello Connie, Changes.... The evening of the session I was able to go up our step ladder two steps in the kitchen and stand on one leg. The weekend after the session, I spent some time at 45 feet in a small (hydraulic) lift and was much more comfortable than before…
I was also noticing that when I walk on catwalks or spend time on elevated platforms, I usually concentrate on work. In the past it was nearly impossible because the fear was overpowering. I've definitely made vast headway. Thanks, you are the best!" -- Blake Townsend, Seattle, WA.
Fear of Public Speaking - GONE!
"Connie, I wanted to let you know, after being hypnotized for a calmer and more relaxed state for the job interview, I wanted you to know that I GOT THE JOB!! I appreciate all your help, it was a remarkable difference!!! Hurray!!! Thank you!" -- Tracy F, Seattle, WA
"I’m doing great! I can’t believe how relaxed I am when I speak, I’m having a lot more fun. You really changed my life. It seems like it’s getting better all the time. I’ve told a few people to go to you for their weight problems. Happy 2014! Thanks!” -- C. O., Woodinville, WA
"Amazing progress! I gave a presentation 2 weeks ago, and wasn't nervous ...immediately felt a wave of calm come over me. I presented well and the audience and other speaker responded well to me, so I know it was successful.!" --Beth, Bellevue, WA
Report from a performance artist: "I notice I am feeling less anxious about what others think and I am able to relax and have fun! I have more courage! I am so happy I met you!" --A.N., Seattle, WA.
Professional Entertainer Finds her Voice
You and I had a session to help me with my performance anxiety. I had my rehearsals for my current production, which in the past would cause me some distress. I am happy to say that I have good news to report, and I am thrilled with my progress!
Since my session, I have been feeling much more calm and positive in my chorus and solo singing. Furthermore, my ability to focus in high pressure situations has improved, thus resulting in the level of performance that I had always felt I was capable of achieving in practice, but what my anxiety would often hinder in performance.
I have sung a few times since our session, and these experiences have all been positive, so much that I feel myself rebuilding the foundation of trust and faith in myself that I thought I had lost forever. I want to thank you so much for your help. I had almost given up on the thing I love, but this has given my mind much needed peace.
I will continue to share my story with others, and if anyone expresses interest upon hearing it, I will be sure to refer your practice. Thank you again!” — J.M., Bothell, WA.
"Hi Connie. Things are actually going really well since I last saw you. The re-imprinting seems to have worked. My self esteem seems to have improved. I have met a man...I'm hoping for the best. I will certainly recommend you to my friends and acquaintances." 🙂 --Deb McKinney, Seattle, WA
"Hi Connie, I am doing good… It's nice I don't get shaky hands anymore in performances since we met. I'm in a much better place mentally to grow as a performer now." -- Anonymous Musician, Seattle, WA.
“Hi Connie, I just wanted to give you an update on my progress post appointment for performance anxiety and self esteem. About not feeling good enough… That has been totally reversed. I never even think that anymore. The cool part is that I used to get anxiety stepping into new situations by myself or sometimes even going to the store but now I don’t even question I, just step right in. It’s been so awesome and I feel a huge sense of freedom!
Re: performance: I have since had 3 guitar lessons and have had no trouble playing my guitar in front of my teacher or anyone else that I told you about. I’ve also used the self hypnosis tools you taught me numerous times since our session and they are working great as well.
Thank you so much! You have changed my life!! I’m so grateful to you!!! I will always recommend your work!! What you do to help people is so important and so powerful. Thank you again! I can’t say that enough.” — Desirae Townsend, Maple Valley, WA.
Diana of Seattle, has found confidence where anxiety used to be. Here is her video testimonial in support of Seattle's best hypnotherapy: Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP. And in a report years later of ongoing success, she calls Connie "a miracle worker."
"Hi Connie, I promised you that I would get back to you about the results of a big meeting I was due to have with my manager: it went well. I felt free to speak and wasn't fearful in any way. Perhaps more telling is that my heart wasn't pounding before the meeting. When this happened (in the past), I was so nervous that all my prep work went out the door and I wound up looking like I don't know what I was talking about. But it didn't happen in this case. I felt comfortable standing my ground and speaking up for my needs.
... I'm also finding myself speaking up more in meetings. When I don't know what something is, I'm not afraid to ask the speaker for clarification. In the past, I was too scared to look like a dummy.
So, all in all, some very positive changes are afoot. 🙂 Thank you for help with all this. I'm going to keep utilizing my newfound confidence." Regards, G.E., Mill Creek, WA.
And I received a follow up email:
"Since my last email, the proposal I was discussing with my manager during the meeting I referenced was subsequently approved by her superiors, giving me more responsibility, visibility and allowing me to be more creative. 🙂 If I hadn't taken that first step of broaching the topic with her first, which I very likely wouldn't have if I continued along my spiral of low-self esteem and lack of confidence, things wouldn't be where they are today." -- G. E., Mill Creek, WA
"Hi Connie, Happy New Year to you!!! I feel really great, empowered, optimistic, and full of life. You were able to unlock the patterns that I had created holding me back. Thank you. I will most definitely keep you in mind for myself and anyone I know that may need some help. May this be your best year yet. It’s going to be mine :)" -- B. D., Seattle, WA.
"I saw another review of Connie where the person referred to Connie as her "fairy godmother" - and I couldn't agree more with that sentiment! I saw Connie for the first time last Spring about some anxieties I was having about a relationship and in just one 2 hour session it was gone. Gone gone. Gone in such a way, it seemed silly and inconceivable that I ever got anxious about the relationship at all. Which then gave me the capacity to fully enjoy every moment and my relationship has flourished ever since.
A few months after that - I decided I wanted to tackle another "issue" - and her work with that was again so magical and instant that I've been seeing her once a month to "tick off", one by one, any other obstacles that had been in the way of my goals.
One of my favorites was in September - I saw her b/c my frustration with a co-worker had reached a breaking point, and I couldn't even stand to be in a meeting with him b/c my blood would boil out of frustration and annoyance and it was starting to affect my own performance. My feelings were so intense that even though I knew Connie's work would help calm me down to the point where I could tolerate him - I didn't expect what happened. After my session with Connie - the next time I had a 1:1 with this co-worker, not only was I NOT annoyed with him in the slightest - I actually found myself appreciative of his qualities that used to annoy me - because with the cloud of frustration (and nearly anger) gone - I was actually able to see the unique value and perspective that he brought AND I could finally see that he appreciates and values me and my perspective as well. Magical. Highly recommend." -- Gina M, Issaquah, WA
An 11 year old girl had a Fear of Germs and Vomit - GONE!
"Hi Connie, Today I went to pick her up at school and she was all smiles. She said that a friend of hers threw up and she was ok. She touched the "magic spot” on her hand and that completely calmed her down. She said that she was more worried for her friend than for herself. This is a big milestone for her and you can see it just by looking at her today: pure happiness. Thanks again." -- F.T., Bellevue, WA.
Fear of Medical Procedures -- Gone!
"Hi Connie! I promised I would e-mail to let you know about the baby's arrival, etc. I wanted to thank you for working with me. I felt pretty darn relaxed about my surgery compared to previous surgeries. I have also found that my recovery has been much quicker and easier this time around. I am so glad we did the NLP and hypnosis to help me prepare. Thanks again!" --Kristen, Renton, WA
Needle Phobia - GONE!
"Hi Connie, I have been waiting until I have needed to do something needle related so I could let you know how it went. Since working with you I noticed I have not been as nervous when thinking or talking about needles, to the point where my husband was really "freaked out” the day I came from your office because he was shocked at my complete turnaround. I even challenged him to try to get me to react to anything needle related and he was unsuccessful.
Today was the ultimate test. I had a doctor’s appointment and they asked if I wanted the TDAP shot. Normally I decline this immediately, but today I thought let’s give it a shot, so I did. I used your technique that will help bring the calm feeling back. The fact that I went through with it shows that the hypnosis was successful! This was the first time in my life I have voluntarily had a shot without hyperventilating or without being restrained or medicated.
Thank you so much for everything, you have opened up many doors in my life that I would not have had with my needle phobia. I have told everyone that knows about my needle fear about you and have recommended they call you if they need to work on anything! Thanks again!" -- Lucy C., Seattle, WA
Fear of Fish, Beaches, Water - GONE!
"Hi Connie, It was a real pleasure working with you ! I Just came back from our vacation from Maui, we had an amazing time, and guess what, I was able to swim in the ocean, and we even went for a submarine tour to watch the fishes...I still can't believe I did that...I just wanted to give you more update about my former fish phobia and that it (hypnosis) is working." -- NB., Bellevue, WA
Smoking Cessation Successes!
"Connie, You must know what you're up to, not even a hint of a craving." -- Curtis S., Seattle, WA.
"I went to Connie to get help quitting smoking. I visited her 6 weeks ago and came out of her office a non-smoker. I tried all the conventional methods to quit and nothing worked. After 50 years of smoking, it's almost unbelievable that I do not have any desire for a cigarette and know that I will never smoke again. Thank you Connie, you're a life saver." -- Robert B., Camano Island, WA.
Jennifer, of the Greater Seattle Area, quit after a 40 year habit. And she reports "it was so easy."
"Since I’ve seen you on April 5th, I have NOT smoked. Wow! What a difference! I’ve smoked for over 30 years…this is great not to be chained to that bad habit any more! Thank you, Connie!!” -- D. Butrick, Seattle, WA
"Hi Connie, I am doing well and continue to be smoke free. I prevailed! I have been bragging about your services to everyone. Thanks again!” -- Jenny Rivera, Greater Seattle area.
A year later, Jenny wrote again: "I am still smoke free. January 20th was my 1 year anniversary and I couldn't be happier."
"Hi Connie - I have been quit smoking since we met 2 months ago. Thanks for your help!" -- Ellen T, Woodinville, WA
"Hi Connie, I want to share with you that I have not been smoking for over 5 weeks now! The onsite sessions coupled with your no smoking cd really has allowed me to finally take control and be proud of myself for being able to do what I have wanted to do...stop smoking!!
I am so grateful for your help! Thank You!" -- Cal Ihler, Woodinville, WA.
Laurie Adams of SeaTac, WA reports on her ongoing success. Two years after our two sessions on smoking cessation , a 40-year smoking habit is still dead as a doornail. "This is the way to go!" she says!
"Hi Connie, it was definitely a pleasure meeting you! Since our meeting (three months ago), I have not had any cravings nor desires to smoke! I feel much better and my blood pressure is down significantly. I also have been eating healthier and started to work out!
I definitely will send any friends over to you. Thank you for helping me!” -- John M. of Seattle, Washington
"I've been feeling really great and have not smoked since our session back in January." -- Ray Meek, Seattle area
"I have 3 months now since I quit smoking. I am so much happier and feel so much better. I feel this is a lifelong experience with your skilled hypnosis expertise. Thank You." -- Laurie A, Seattle, WA.
"I'm 28 days without a cigarette. I feel great! Everything worked! I'm very surprised at these results. Exceeded my expectations." -- Dave Manion, Bellevue, WA.
"I am so proud that I have not smoked all this time. It’s amazing! I can’t believe that I have done it! I used to believe that I could not live without cigarettes. Now I know I will never be a smoker again! I’m so happy I met you, Connie.” -- N.B., Bellevue, WA.
"Hello there Connie. This Thursday will mark 6 weeks of NO SMOKING!! Yahoo!! The journey so far has been interesting for me…I have had a few dreams where I did light up and was very disappointed at myself. Nice to wake up and realize 'I’m good.'" 🙂 -- Dawn Abourezk, Seattle, WA.
"Over the 20 + years of being a smoker, I have made several attempts and used a variety of methods to try and quit.... all unsustainable. I was always thinking about smoking or not smoking which made the battle to quit miserable and in the end I'd go back and have 'just one more'.
I was desperate for a solution to quit permanently as I was sick and tired of being a 'prisoner' to the habit. I had heard that hypnosis had helped many people so I started to research my options in the area when I found Connie Brannan. Connie is not only a hypnotherapist she is also certified in neuro-linguistic programming (N.L.P. - she is far better at explaining what this is).
She is very professional and very good at what she does. Connie is a warm, positive, and uplifting person. She is also a success story of hypnosis herself. Her office environment was also very comfortable and I felt very relaxed and trusted her immediately to 'talk to my sub-conscious'.
I walked out of that office with absolutely zero desire to smoke. I got in my car, which has always been my private smoking chamber, and drove myself home wondering when the urge would hit me. It didn't. In fact after one session, it hasn't. Unbelievably, I have no desire to smoke at all and in addition, my association with being a smoker has changed. It doesn't even feel like I was ever a smoker.
I have so much energy! It has been 5 weeks since that session and not a single cigarette or more importantly a desire for a cigarette. I am amazed!! I wish I would have found Connie a long time ago!
If you are a smoker and have battled with trying to quit, see Connie. She is awesome and has changed my life! It was instant, it was painless, and it was successful!!" Sincerely, Kim J., the Seattle non-smoker
"The urge to smoke is gone!...Two thumbs up for using hypnosis to quit smoking. Connie helped me quit a few months ago, and now I don’t think of myself as an ex-smoker. Most of the time I don’t even remember that I ever smoked at all!" -- Nancy C., Bellevue, WA.
"Hi Connie, Alan the former smoker here! Well, not very surprisingly I am now a tobacco free person. On the 1st of April (the day I had marked in my time line) I woke up realizing that I had been dreaming and what I was dreaming was your voice doing an intervention. Cool huh. Just thought you would like to know." --Alan A., Lynnwood
"It's been 7 days since my first session with you, and I haven't touched a cigarette! Thanks for your help. I feel great and less stressed. My lungs feel younger!" --John W., Bellevue, WA
And a follow up report:
"Hi, Connie, I just wanted to share news with you that it is almost a month since I smoked my last one. I feel so clean, energized, refined and all good stuff I dreamed of. Thank you once again!" --John W., Bellevue, WA
“I wish I had known about Connie years ago. I wish I had known that I could be a non-smoker so painlessly and quickly. After 30 + years of addiction it’s gone – And I did not suffer in the process! No urges, no cravings, no overeating to compensate. I have tried to quit 3 times in the past decade and failed each time – until I went to Connie. I am in awe of the freedom from smoking and how easy Connie made it for me. This was so worth it! I am excited to work with Connie on my fear of flying next!” — Jennifer G, Federal Way, WA.
Some people quit in one session. Some people, it takes a little longer for the mind to process the changes. Bottom line: changes happen. Success happens. Here's a happy nonsmoker (now) sharing his success story with our services:
"I'm going to tell you a bit about my success with Hypnosis. I was a smoker. I smoked about a pack a day at the worst days. I had coughs, and unhappy mornings when I 'had to have' my cigarette...Before meeting with Connie Brannan, I was struggling with not smoking. After I walked out of her office, I didn't have to struggle anymore. Now, THREE MONTHS later, I am still a proud, successful nonsmoker. Not only was this treatment relaxing, I learned tools that were practical for me. Whenever I had a craving, I applied her useful tools to my moment-to-moment cravings for what I once had. I feel great, and I have no desire to smoke cigarettes. Connie, you have no idea how much of a difference, and how many years you helped add on to my life. Many, many thanks!" --Samantha Woolsey, Kirkland, WA
John O. of Bellevue, WA, quit after one session. His comment: "You're good!"
"I'm doing quite well. Funny, it seems like it's been years since I quit smoking, but in actuality it's only been a few months." --Collete, Seattle, WA.
"After trying every other known method to quit smoking, went to Connie six weeks ago and have been smoke free since. Highly recommend her. I am sure I would still be smoking if not for her treatment so I am the one who needs to be thanking her over and over." --Robert B., Camano Island, WA.
Success handling alcohol issues -- with hypnotism!
"When I came to see you I was struggling with alcohol and an unhealthy lifestyle. I am so happy to say that after only two sessions, that's totally changed. I've adopted many different behaviors that are healthy, including exercise, eating right, and most importantly, NOT DRINKING. Thanks again! Our hypnosis sessions have really changed my life!" --Anonymous, Woodinville, WA.
"Initially I went to Connie feeling like I needed help with drinking too much alcohol and smoking. I was kind of skeptical because of what I had heard others say in the past about hypnosis but after meeting Connie on our consultation I felt like I would like to try it anyway.
I knew that self-esteem and confidence was the real issue all my life, but Prozac can only do so much for you...I've had 25+ years of depression and eating, drinking issues. After working with Connie for 4 sessions I say proudly that I actually have that self-confidence and motivation to take charge and make changes in my life. It was the best gift I ever gave myself!
I recommend Connie to anyone struggling with similar issues that they want help with, she is very skilled and she personalizes things to work best for you." Anonymous, Renton, WA.
Banish obsessive thoughts!
Elizabeth Daza, of Kirkland, offers a video testimonial below how Mindworks Hypnosis helped her do just that! In just a single Neuro Linguistic Hypnotherapy session.
Tools for Accelerated Healing and Pain Management
"Hi, Connie, I just wanted to write and tell you that something great has happened because of your work with me. As you know, I have been dealing with this bum knee for over a year. I've seen a chiro and a physical therapist and it still wasn't getting better. After that one session with you, though, something amazing has changed. It has become much stronger!! I have done things with it that in the past would have easily reinjured it and yet, now, it has stayed strong. I was so close to getting surgery and now I don't think I need that!! Please continue to do this excellent work for others...you must have some magic..." -- Craig S, Bellevue, WA

He Got Off of Pain Killers with Hypnosis
"Hi Connie. Thank you so much for helping my son, Eric. He feels so much better. He is actually laughing and smiling again. I have told several people about his experience, and now they want to see you . My fathers' physical therapist , from Swedish Hospital, plans to refer some of his clients, who have real pain issues, to you . I didn't think you would mind if I gave him your info.
Connie, Eric told our attorney , and he was so excited that he would like to refer clients to you. He has been a friend for years, and has been as concerned as I about the prescribed pain killers. He was so happy to learn that all Eric needs, is some Tylenol, from time to time." -- Deborah Waters, Seattle
Hypnosis for healing old relationship wounds:
Nicole MacNeil of Olympia, WA. reports on her success with Mindworks Hypnosis, with the video testimonial below:
"Thanks for the work we've done regarding my dad. It's so much easier now to let him be himself and to love him for himself without feeling threatened by our differences. I feel this new space inside me every time I talk to him." --Claudia M., Bellevue, WA
"Hi, Connie, I had great results this week with my family. It was much more pleasant spending time with them without as much unnecessary resentment. Thanks for helping me let it go!" --Cheri S. Snohomish, WA
This lovely lady, Kerry D., of the Greater Seattle area, found a new path.
"I was very hesitant to seek help or counseling, for all of my life, because I didn't want to talk about my problems. I know what my problems are. I just wanted to fix them.
And then I found Connie. And after one session I felt remarkably better. Like a completely different person. Connie is amazing! I trust her and I feel like she is somewhat of a kindred spirit.
Don't think twice. Trust your instincts. Come and see Connie. She's amazing. Truly, truly amazing." -- Kerry D., Seattle, WA.
"As far as being around my dad, things have been good, …life is a little easier…easier to forgive…it was the first time he really seemed frail and breakable just like any other old man, he had always seemed like this strong kind of monster, I guess and the reality is that he's only human just like the rest of us. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your help." --Mrs. C., Childhood abuse sufferer
And a follow up report:
"Well I wanted to thank you so very much particularly for the timeline work that you did with me, the forgiveness I was able to find has been invaluable to me. The day he died, I had peace, I had no regrets and I believe that I owe most of that to you, you gave me a great gift in helping me find forgiveness and this last year or so has probably been the best that I've ever spent with him, right down to his last days..." --Mrs. C., Childhood abuse sufferer
Pump up the confidence!

Also, I have referred you to others." --Fred, Kirkland, WA

"I am absolutely thrilled with the changes in my life since my work with you! I was struggling with my confidence and my ability to achieve my educational and business goals. I now feel more confident and sure of myself, knowing I can do whatever I want easily and effortlessly." --J.K., Seattle
Michelle of Sammamish, WA reports on the "huge impact" of improved confidence.
“Hi, I’ve had a couple sessions with Connie and have noticed a bunch of changes in just a short period of time. The biggest change I’ve noticed is working on self doubt, motivation, confidence. I’m pretty much not contradicting myself in my head. Not preventing myself from doing some things that I want to do. And that so far has had a huge impact.
Some of the things that we talked about–healthy lifestyles! There were a couple of food vices that I had. Soda was one of those, that I would turn to when I was stressed. We had a session on that. And, now, I don’t have that same stress response. I don’t crave that soda if I’m having a bad day. So, some big changes there. It’s been an amazing, positive experience!
Working on confidence and healthy habits. I’ve noticed a lot of progress. So, there’s a motivation, a sense of enthusiasm. So, it’s a really fun experience! And really positive! All in a short amount of time. I definitely recommend Connie Brannan.” — Michelle, Sammamish, WA.

"I wanted to let you know that just now I had done a successful self hypnosis session on confidence. I had an event earlier today that had me feeling down and filled with anxiety, just now
after my 15 minute session am I able to keep calm and positive. I did as you said, I visualized myself interacting with people and challenges in my past and future in a strong- confident way...
My healing has come a long way in which I feel the momentum of positivism emerging in my mind giving me hope instead of hopelessness like before." -- S. Roth, Tacoma, WA.
Julia of Seattle reports on the "profound difference" in her life, via this "comfortable" process. That's right!!
"After four sessions of hypnosis, I have all that I asked for. I came to Connie with depression and a lack of energy. No more. Now, instead, I have a passion for life, I’m full of energy, happiness, confidence, and a sense of humor. I’m back to my athletics. The world is full of pink. I’ve also found what it is I want to do with my life!
I recommend Connie and Mindworks to anyone who has any difficulties in life. I share her information with people I love who I know could benefit from hypnosis. I am amazed how all my wishes really have come true." --T. V., Redmond, WA.

by the breakup of my marriage. Thank you SO much!!" -- Lisa B., Southern CA.
"I have to say, I've been quite amazed by how helpful the hypnosis and NLP session has been.

I have been able to live my life back the way it was Normal and Anxiety free-- On no drugs!! Thank you so much." --Katelyn Culbert - O'Leary, Seattle, WA
"Hi Connie, I’m doing fabulously! Working with you has absolutely changed my life, here’s some things I’ve noticed:
-Much more relaxed and focused; I’m able to deal with situations better than before when I get stressed, and am able to get into a state of calm when I need to. My working life has improved drastically." -- Kelli Zielinski, Seattle, WA
"Hello, Connie, I want to give you an update on the changes in my life since I saw you in February 2012. have continued to benefit from my freedom from depression.
I have been able to pursue and complete a good, healthy diet program that allowed me to lose 21 pounds...Without your help, I would still not have been able to get on this particular bandwagon. Thank you so much.
I also have been able to handle a number of emotionally difficult situations which, in the past, would have had me reeling. What a great improvement. I no longer become paralyzed with grief, fear, or anger when I learn of family illness, marital problems, self-esteem issues, etc.
These changes are because you told my subconscious what to do to make me live the way I want to. I have always held to your phrase that if something I think or believe isn’t useful in my life, get rid of it. What a concept!
In addition to letting you know how I’m doing myself, I wanted to let you know that I referred 2 of my friends to you, and they both have reported great happiness with what you did for them." -- Karel Creason, Bellevue, WA
NLP™ and Hypnosis work for improving optimism and emotional well-being:
"Success! Several people asked me last week -- if I had been getting extra sleep or had been on a vacation because I looked GREAT. Felt like a new person." -- Anonymous, Seattle, WA
"Thank you. I can't tell you how much what you said means to me...You really have made me feel better. I hope you have a wonderful day today--smile knowing you made me smile." -- P. M. L. , Seattle, WA
"I’m smiling all the time. People think that I am in love! But I am not! Absolutely not in love, I just feel GREAT. I believe that it’s the hypnosis!!" -- Saliha B., Issaquah, WA.
"Hello Connie, I just wanted to let you know, everything is going great! I’m very happy I had the opportunity to meet someone like yourself in my life. You’ve helped me so much. You have a tremendous amount of positive energy and that’s what I’m naturally all about! : ) Thanks again!" -- Wasiem Hamadeh, Renton, WA
"I worked with Connie recently on some longstanding issues and found her to not only be incredibly competent in working with me, I also found her to be both extremely positive, uplifting and compassionate. I felt fortunate to be able to work with her and would recommend her to others." --Carmen G, Seattle, WA.
She "Pop"ped her cola addiction!
"I'm thrilled!." --K. O. Renton, WA
And a follow up:
"Hello again Connie, Well, it's December and I haven't had any Coke or Pepsi since my session with you last February (woo hoo!). My first experience with hypnosis and NLP was a success! Thank you!" -- Kristen Oulton
Hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming work:
"Connie was referred to me by a coworker that had a crippling anxiety. She got immediate relief. I was in need of help with limiting beliefs that were crippling my career. The idea of lengthy and expensive traditional counseling frankly created more anxiety. The problem is that I didn't have the time or desire for that approach.
I am in a very competitive field requiring the ability to think quickly on your feet. I had three sessions with Connie and the results were immediate and long lasting.
I am presently enjoying self confidence that has translated into a promotion and that has had a great impact on my income. In terms of cost. I could not afford to not see her. It was a bargain.
My confidence, focus, creativity with the ability to have it manifest immediately in my performance frankly, Surprised me. The only regret I have is that I did not meet Connie earlier. The process is simple, quick and fun.
I've referred two of my friends, Both enjoying similar results.
If you struggle with anxiety, confidence or any sales related challenges, do yourself a favor." -- Anthony Z., Bellingham, WA
"Connie, As we finished up our sessions today I wanted to thank you and say a few words.
I had been to counseling at least three times over the past 28 years for: procrastination/not motivated/negative/low energy/self-esteem-confidence. Well I spent a lot of [time] talking, however, I did not receive much help, only more frustration.
I have always been open to alternative therapies but had not explored the possibilities of what Hypnosis could do for me until this year. I researched hypnotherapists in my area. I viewed your web site and read the patient reviews. After I watched your video, I felt there was a connection and believed you could help.
I knew I had made the right choice the minute I walked into your office. The office is very calming, light, bright & creative. You are very confident and explained what therapies you use, your degrees, certificates, years of experience including your own successes. I was ready to get started!
It was all so easy and relaxing. I was amazed after the first session how I had changed without even thinking about it. I just did not want to be un-motivated, I had energy to get things done - I did not go crazy by any means but it felt good to think to myself," hmm I really don't feel like watching anymore TV". I did not want to put things off until tomorrow - before, I was the queen of making things sound so much better if I did them tomorrow!
It felt awesome to see myself energized to go out for a walk or work in the yard, instead of ugh - really a walk. I don't crave the salty snacks, if I eat them - I just have a few and I'm satisfied. The things that bothered me are simply gone, just like you said - whoosh. The hypnosis itself is amazingly relaxing, I was aware of everything - yet the time slipped by.
I am so excited to work with my Self Hypnosis..I let you know how it goes. Thank you again!" -- Diana S, Woodinville, WA
Another happy client shares her new mindset, now that we kicked her limiting beliefs to the curb:
"Ms. Connie - After my 'boost' visit last month, I was STRONGLY compelled to write something ... "Enough - as I am. Today. Right now. I am enough." Awesomeness!
Thank you again, so much, for all your patience, your help and for giving me the tools to continue moving forward. You are greatly appreciated!" - Barb B. (Everett, WA, USA)
When you change how you think about yourself, in these very fundamental ways, it changes everything in your life, your self care, your work, your relationships, your health, your ability to learn new things, and so on... It's all good. Onward and upward in joy for Barb.
“Hi, Connie! We worked together a few times last year on improving confidence and self-worth. Working with you was a HUGE turning point in my life. I have never felt better. The practical tools we created together and that you customized for me always work, without fail. Infinite thank you’s to you, awesome you!
In light of how highly I think of you and your work, I am now reaching out to you to help a family member. I can’t think of anyone better or more qualified to help than you. He has done talk therapy a lot. . . He needs subconscious work with you and tools to bring himself back to a state of balance and happiness.
Thank you for being you and for all that you do. You’ll always hold a special place in my heart! (Subconscious and conscious!!) With love + gratitude, Taylor” -- Taylor S., Seattle, WA
"Keep shining and being a miracle-maker/sharer." -- Marcela Joy, Portland, OR.
"Connie is wonderful! Her approach is always compassionate and caring, seeking to understand. Whatever the problem, Connie has the tools to solve it!" --Jeannie, Seattle
Tom Farrish of Randle, WA is using hypnosis & NLP to focus his mind on business success. Here is his happy report:

"Hi Connie! I really enjoyed meeting with you. You empower me. Great news! I have been sleeping well. Thanks for all your help. Best Regards." -- A. A., Redmond, WA
"Hi Connie. Thanks so much… I am sleeping better now and I do believe my anxiety has lessened." -- Deb McKinney, Seattle area
"Connie, I've noticed some significant changes. I frequently use the self-hypnosis techniques to fall asleep, and I have been having very restful sleep. I've recommended you to my friend. Best, Deborah C." Deborah C -- Greater Seattle area.
"The sleeping is much better. I actually do sleep through the night now. When I do wakeup I can go back to sleep. I could not do that before. Thank you so much for your help. Regards, Laurie." -- Laurie A, Seattle, WA.
"I love that I sleep so much better, not only am I off the medication I used to have to take almost nightly to help me sleep, I also find that the sleep I get is a lot deeper." -- Kelli Zielinski, Seattle
"Hi Connie, This is Hanae, you helped me with my insomnia. I am now able to fall asleep easily and my babies have their mummy back!... You truly gave me my life back. " -- Hanae S, Bellevue
"...the relaxing feeling is awesome, and I do sleep a lot better." --Dominique M., Seattle
"This morning, I woke up... I do feel more energetic and not drained like before." --Iris, Seattle
"I began listening to the CD you gave me about 5-6 days ago. I don't even make it through the entire CD before I am asleep. My quality of sleep has definitely improved!Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!" --Beth, Bellevue, WA
Battling procrastination is easy with hypnosis:
"I have been able to pick up the phone without hesitation for numerous types of business calls, which I would have procrastinated on before. This is the most amazing difference and the most important, since this directly relates to me getting the referrals I need that lead to my income." --B. P., Bellevue, WA
"Before my sessions with Connie, I would have put off writing this letter forever. That was me then--never finishing anything, always putting things off until tomorrow. It all changed when I worked with Connie. Now, I just get right to the things I need to get done. I'm motivated. It's incredible! Trance really was cool, too. My advice? Don't delay!" --M. B., Bellevue, WA.
Hypnosis for enhanced rapport:
"Dear Connie, I know I was a really "hard nut to crack” this past Monday. I want to say "thanks”. Thanks for being such a good listener, and for paying such close attention to what I’m feeling. Your hypnosis is always in sync with where I am... I just wanted to let you know and to tell you how much I appreciate your work!" --C. M. Bellevue, WA.
"Connie Brannan is the kind of hypnotherapist I can whole heartedly recommend. She is more than just a hypnotherapist!...She is able to deal with and resolve all kinds of psychological and physical health issues! Helping people live healthier, happier, more productive lives has to be the highest calling in life! That is what Connie does at 'Mindworks.'...I have watched her work her craft, with the success that only her skills can produce! As a client at Mindworks, Connie will help you to accomplish all that your heart desires and your Imagination can believe!" --Winston Steadman, Imagineering NW
She’s learned to release stress on the unconscious level:
"...thanks for your patience that allows me to relax so fully into hypnosis. I’ve had hypnosis before, but have never felt so comfortable letting go and that’s a big deal for me! I felt so much better when I left your office this week! I hadn’t thought anything could change that day! But I felt happier and more empowered." --Claudia, Bellevue, WA.
Acing those exams is easier than you think! Say adios to test anxiety:
"Well the boards went really well and I did awesome. Thank you so very much for your help and support. With warm regards and much gratitude..." Former Test Anxiety Sufferer, Seattle
“I did the re-certification test and completed it fairly easily, had a couple of issues but didn’t get frustrated or angry because of the issues. At that point I still didn’t connect our sessions with my improved ability or attitude. It wasn’t until the ride home when I was just thinking of how easy it seemed to be and what was different than the last few times I had to do it; then it hit me like a ton of bricks! My success is truly due to our sessions! So the progress on that level has been and is amazing!” -- John K., Bellevue, WA
No more facial tics!
"Hi Connie, Thanks for the session; I'm happy with the results. My son has been keeping an eye on me and says I have not been making the faces I used to. My shoulders are almost always relaxed and I have almost no neck and shoulder pain anymore. Thanks again." -- Ross J, Lynnwood
Connie is a dynamic speaker:
"Hi Connie, I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, in fact you guys genuinely rate as the best teachers I've ever had. I particularly appreciated your encouragement and enthusiasm. I will
definitely keep in touch. Hope you have a bit of a rest before your NLP workshop, Thanks again." -- Louise Evans, Vancouver, BC.
"Connie: Thanks so much for your presentation yesterday for my students. Your visit was exactly what I had in mind... Much appreciation for your time and for enlightening us with your enthusiasm and joy in what you do. Thanks!" -- Bernie, High School Teacher, Seattle
"Hi Connie, Thank you for teaching a great class at the Bellevue College. I really enjoyed it. I am going to refer other friends and family members to you. Have a great Holiday!" --Daniel "Scott” Tomes, Bellevue, WA.
"...I thought the class was a great value. I had a lot of fun." -- Brett, Seattle, WA.
"...Two thumbs up for any of the self-hypnosis classes, and for using hypnosis to quit smoking...The class is extremely effective because Connie will take you in and out of hypnosis multiple times, and while you’re in a hypnotic trance, she’ll give you instructions that allow you to go back into trance on your own whenever you want to. I use it on the bus going to and from work. 20 minutes twice a day in unusual conditions, but it works marvelously. Go take the class!" -- Nancy C., Bellevue, WA.
"Dotty and I just want to thank you for your course, Hypnosis and Health. We enjoyed every moment and know that we now have tools to help us achieve our goals. We look forward to being in your classes in the future." -- Sincerely, Marty and Dotty Platzner, Seattle, WA.
