Become a Member of our Exclusive Hypnosis Club. When you become a client at ChangeWorks, our work together doesn't end when your sessions do. You automatically become a member of The Hypnosis Club, which features a ton of free audio downloads, complete e-courses, book downloads, monthly hypnosis teleseminars on pertinent topics, and discounts to workshops and live events. I can't let you go to the Club's page because that's only for members, but here's a snapshot showing just a fraction of what is available to Hypnosis Club members.
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind we are all in at least a few times every day. It can be described as a relaxed but very focused state, in which the subconscious mind can more readily be communicated with to change beliefs, habits and other behaviors. Hypnosis was approved as a modality by the American Medical Association in 1958, and has a long history of use in the control of pain, habit/behavior change, pre- and post-surgery use, and the abatement of anxieties, PTSD and more.
Hypnosis is safe and effective when used by a well-trained and qualified hypnotherapist.

Here at ChangeWorks, we do it a bit differently. We are certified by and in alignment with the philosophies of the International Medical and Dental Hypnosis Association and the International Association of Counselors and Therapists. We both teach and practice Diversified Client-Centered Hypnosis.
What does that mean?
One would think that, since we're all human and come with the same basic equipment, that we would all work pretty much the same way when it comes to reacting to our environment and forming beliefs, emotional responses and behaviors. However, we are as unique as snowflakes, and we each process information, and respond to our environment, differently. So, when you begin sessions at ChangeWorks, you will be taken through a consultation process that includes some exercises that tell your hypnotherapist how YOUR mind likes to receive and process information, and what type of hypnotic suggestions are best suited to you.

Client Centered and Medical Hypnosis Training
Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy trainings leading to certifications are offered by Cindy Locher and Jody Kimmell. Some are through Normandale Community College and some are on site at ChangeWorks Hypnosis Center in Apple Valley Minnesota. The Diversified Client Centered Hypnotherapy model that we teach is based on the work of Roy Hunter and (the late) Charles Tebbetts. This training is directed toward healthcare and mental health professionals in Minnesota or elsewhere seeking to add clinical / medical hypnotherapy to their skill sets for use with their patients in practice.
Self Hypnosis classes (Self Hypnosis, Self Hypnosis for Weight Loss, Self Hypnosis for Pain Control) are open to the general public and are offered either through Normandale Community College or directly at ChangeWorks Hypnosis Center in Apple Valley, MN.
