Biography for Jayne Goldman, CHt

Jayne Goldman is a Certified Hypnotherapist and Master NLP Coach. She is the principal and founder of Best Life Hypnotherapy based in Los Angeles, California. After completing her MBA, Jayne spent 30 years in the business world before discovering her real passion and talent for guiding people in creating breakthrough changes in their lives.

She received her Hypnotherapy training at the prestigious Hypnosis Motivation Institute and graduated with Honors and the distinguished Directors Award for her achievements in clinical practice. She received her Master NLP Coaching Certification from the Tad James Company and was trained by Tad James himself, developer of Time Line Therapy®, a commonly used and extremely effective NLP technique.

Jayne credits her son as her inspiration for her work today...

I became a Hypnotherapist and Master NLP Coach because of a success story with my son, Andrew. Andrew has Ataxic Cerebral Palsy, which is related to fine motor and balance. Cognitive processing is significantly impacted and resulted in severe learning delays; he was not reading at age 23. Although he is developmentally delayed, Andrew did have the real ability to read by the time he was in his early teens. However, because he had tried and failed for so many years, he refused to even look at a book and had a very poor self-image.

A friend suggested that Hypnotherapy and NLP Coaching might help him to believe in himself. Through a series of sessions, the therapist had him believing that he was so smart that reading was easy for him. To my shock, Andrew began to read, driving his self-esteem through the roof! The power of Hypnotherapy and NLP techniques were obvious to me and from that point forward, I was determined to learn as much as I could about this field so I could help others to achieve miracles in their lives, as well.

NLP Coaching and Hypnotherapy are the perfect combination to unearth and release negative emotions and limiting beliefs that prevent you from realizing your full potential. Once the root cause of resistance to achieving your conscious goal is eliminated, you are free to create powerful beliefs that support you in having whatever you want in your life.

I am a firm believer in the fact that my clients have the answers they are seeking within themselves; I am merely a catalyst to draw out the "truth." Whether someone wants to quit smoking, lose weight or find relief from anxiety, grief or low self-esteem, there is much digging beneath the surface to be done to discover the root cause of the unwanted behaviors and emotions. Once we bring these to the surface, transformation begins to take place. Unwanted behaviors and emotions are replaced with desired ones and all of this is reinforced while in the very suggestible hypnotic state so that permanent change is achieved.

I provide an MP3 recording of the hypnosis portion of each session so that you can continue to reinforce all the positive suggestions for change in the comfort of your own home… anytime you like.
