Biography for Lauren Carter, CCHt

As a Certified Hypnotherapist, Health and Life Coach, and Intuitive, I invite you to join me on a journey of exploration into the natural healing properties of your mind, body, and spirit. Whether it’s the achievement of a personal improvement goal or the urgent need to find a healthy more fulfilling life path, the use of hypnosis, imagery, and mindfulness is a powerful way to comfortably and efficiently assist you in achieving your goals.

My journey of understanding the healing powers of the mind started in 2018 when I began exploring alternative methods of healing. I was well into my self-improvement journey when I discovered the healing powers of energy work, meditation, and self-hypnosis. In my exploration, I experienced spiritual and personal breakthroughs unlike anything else I had encountered using more traditional methods. These experiences led me to begin exploring the world of hypnotherapy.

Hypnotherapy has helped me to realize and fully access the powers within my own mind to transform my life. From personal goals and habits to deeper issues of self-esteem, self-love, and fear of success, hypnotherapy delivered an organic, rapid, yet comfortable, path to the life goals and purpose I was seeking.

My experiences ultimately guided me to study at the Hypnosis Motivation Institute’s Nationally Accredited College of Hypnotherapy where I graduated with honors with a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy. Throughout my time at HMI, I have had the good fortune to work directly with the Director of the Institute and key Senior Staff Instructors to learn to integrate my prior learning experiences into my hypnotherapy practice, combining everything I had learned on my own path with the clinical hypnotherapy skills I have acquired.

I have been incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to continue my education through HMI’s second-year Associate of Occupational Studies Degree Program in Mind-Body Psychology. This additional year of study along with interactive classes and clinical supervision is gifting me with continued growth as both an individual and a hypnotherapist, enabling me to assist my clients with their personal transformations on an even deeper level.

Today, I have found my life’s passion, reaching out my hand to others who are on or looking for the path of personal transformation. Nothing fills my heart more than to witness a soul releasing its pain, discovering its power, and finding its purpose. That’s what happened to me, and I welcome the opportunity to witness it happening to you.

I’d be happy to help you discover what hypnotherapy can do for you. If you have any questions, I welcome you to book a Free Alignment Call via my website booking system or send me an email to connect.

Through my education and experience, I have developed an ability to help others make radical perceptual shifts on both the conscious and subconscious levels. I believe my greatest gift is my ability to help others realize their potential and wake up to the power and control they have in their lives. It is my passion to empower others to reach their goals and create change they never thought possible for themselves.

I love to educate my clients about the brain, neuroplasticity, and the power of the mind, so they better understand why they think, feel, and behave the way they do. I also enjoy teaching mindfulness to my clients to assist in developing awareness of their thoughts, feelings, and behavior and the impact they have in their lives.

Although I work with clients on all sorts of issues, my previous career as a flight attendant has been very helpful in assisting others to resolve their fear of flying. I also spent a year studying at the Berkeley Psychic Institute and deeply enjoy assisting others in their spiritual development and exploration.
