Biography for Darlene McDowell, CHt

Darlene McDowell, Certified Hypnotherapist

As a Certified Clinical Behavioral Hypnotherapist, I will guide you through any or all aspects of life choices and changes, such as:

  • Career and/or career changes.
  • Financial - Negativity that may be keeping you from being or becoming prosperous.
  • Self-Sabotage - We hold ourselves back or cause ourselves not to succeed, sometimes even fearing success.
  • Relationships - Why you are having problems staying in a relationship, getting into a healthy relationship or letting go of an unhealthy relationship.
  • Self-esteem, self-confidence and motivation.
  • Communication - Why it is so hard to say what I want to say, or to be in control of my own life, saying no or just being assertive.
  • Getting rid of fears and/or phobias - Any fears and phobias will keep you from having a fulfilling and healthy life.
  • Panic attacks, stress and anxieties.
  • Stop Smoking - You will become a non-smoker, the first session and accept that you want to quit.
  • Weight Loss - Lose the extra pounds that you want to lose and live healthy and have a fun lifestyle and feel good about yourself.
  • Procrastination - Why do I keep putting off things that need to be done now or even yesterday?
  • Studying and comprehension for exams.
  • Athletes - Concentration and preparing for a sporting event.
  • Stage Fright - Public speaking, actors or singers preparing for stage or camera performances.

Or anything that is holding you back from living a very fulfilling, healthy and successful life.
