Help is within reach…it is within you…

Nicole MerlineI get to spend time in one of my Chamber of Commerce groups and at Chamber events with Nicol Merline, M.A. CHt, owner and practitioner at MTU Hypnosis . What a fascinating lady and what great stories she has to share of the successes that she’s had with helping people overcome problems through hypnosis.

The basis of hypnotherapy is the ability to get to the subconscious mind through hypnosis and to use the power of suggestion with the subconscious mind to make dramatic changes in the patient’s conscious life. It turns out that most of what we need to help ourselves is already within us, in the power of the sub-conscious mind.

Nicol’s range of patient successes goes well beyond the typical smoking cessation or fear of spiders types of things. She has concentrated more on helping people remove their mental roadblocks to success in sports or in academics and other pursuits in life. She has been successful in areas such as pain management and stress management, as well as the relatively new field of Virtual Gastric Band as a weight loss aid. You can view some great videos of customer testimonials at her web site. The point is that there are many more uses for hypnotherapy than you may have imagined.

Nicol is board certified in advanced hypnotherapy and is a member of the International Association of Holistic Providers. Her credentials include:

• National Guild Of Hypnotists

• International Association of Counselors and Therapists

• International Hypnosis Federation

• Hypnosis International Board of Registration

• American Board of Hypnotherapy

• Michigan Association of Counselors and Hypnotherapists

• Wayne State University B.S.

• Eastern Michigan University M.A. – Educational Leadership

The real reason for going through all of the above is to hopefully let you know that Nicol is a serious option for you to consider when you have an issue that is driven by fear or anxiety, anguish or pain, doubts or concerns.

I posted to this blog recently about asking for help. Once you get to that state of mind where that is possible, sometimes you need to know whom to ask. There are obvious choices around (friends, relatives and clergymen come to mind); however, sometimes you need someone with expertise and training on how to understand and deal with your issues. Sometimes that may be a trained physiologist or counselor, sometimes the issue may require a healthcare professional and sometimes the answer is within you and alternative care professionals like Nicol can help you find it.

There is a growing appreciation in the healthcare industry for the contributions that can be made by alternative approaches to care. Approaches like chiropractors, acupuncture, yoga, massage therapy, hypnotherapy and others are now being acknowledged to have great positive impact. Many studies have shown these alternative approaches can have as much positive impact as traditional medical practitioners may have with drugs that they prescribe to treat symptoms. Some modern medical practitioners, such as Doctors of Osteopathy, even embrace and combine some of these alternative approaches with what is called “modern medicine.”

So, if you have issues that you’ve been unable to deal with alone, give Nicol Merline a call at 248-568-0831MTU Hypnosis logo and schedule an appointment. That initial consultation is free and she will tell you afterwards whether what she can do for you is a good likely solution or whether you need to seek other help. I can pretty well assure you that if it has anything to do with your self-esteem, your self-confidence or your desire to overcome a fear, a phobias or just a bad habit; she can probably help you.  A large percent of the issues that we think we have in life is all in our minds anyway; so let Nicole help you get that part straightened out and the rest will take care of itself.
