“My professional background includes work with clients who have succeeded in overcoming situations ranging from nail biting to bulimia. I love what I do. My goal is to facilitate a persons discovery of their healing inner resources. As far as I am concerned, a hypnosis/NLP coach is a teacher and a guide. I teach people about their mind as it relates to the hypnotherapeutic context. Then, I guide them to that area of their mind where they can engage in very powerful, positive self-persuasion.”

–C. Devin Hastings
