Bob Gardner, clinic director of AlignedMinds Hypnosis, is a member of the Master Hypnotist Society and was trained using the MHS system which has helped tens of thousands of clients to achieve their goals of quitting smoking, weight loss, stress management, and to supercharge personal and professional growth.
Bob first experienced hypnosis over 20 years ago. “I had been smoking 2-3 packs of cigarettes per day for years and tried quitting cold turkey many times. Although I really wanted to stop the nasty habit, I felt as though I was consistently sabotaging my own success. Each time, I would rebound and smoke as much or more than before.
Each ‘failure’ solidified my feeling that my will was not strong enough. I was fed up with everything about smoking, but I felt controlled by it. On the advice of a friend, I tried hypnosis and finally took control of the habit.
It was so much easier than I had imagined – almost as if I had received an adjustment that aligned my subconscious and conscious intentions. After that, making the “right” choices seemed so much easier. Since then, I have utilized hypnosis on many occasions for everything from stress relief to boosting confidence.
The subconscious mind is millions of times more powerful than the conscious mind.
When we ‘will’ something to happen consciously, a ‘check’ is done to ensure that the intention aligns with our subconscious beliefs about who we are, what is possible, and the personal ‘rules’ we live by.
Even though many of these subconscious beliefs were created years ago in infancy or childhood, they become more ingrained over time and can profoundly impact our behavior in the present.
Hypnosis can help by bringing your subconscious attitudes and beliefs into alignment with your conscious goals. When the power of the subconscious mind is aligned with conscious efforts, the results can be dramatic and life-changing.
The Opportunity To Help
When the pandemic hit, I saw the opportunity to help others through hypnosis and NLP.
My vision for my clinical work is to help others achieve freedom in their lives, add tools and choice to their respective toolboxes and in so doing, help people achieve the freedom to become the best version of themselves.
The power of the subconscious mind has always fascinated me, and I feel privileged to be able to help others achieve lasting change through aligning their subconscious and conscious minds.
