Hello and thank you for visiting my website. My name is Erika Flint, Board Certified Hypnotist and Accredited Certified Professional Hypnotherapy Instructor.
My background is in computer programming and problem solving. I was working in that field for over a decade when I realized how interested I was in the greatest computing device available - the human mind! I began my studies locally in Bellingham, and I graduated from one of the finest hypnotherapy schools in the nation, offered at Bellingham Technical College. I followed up my basic hypnotherapy training with an advanced program called 5-PATH®, taught by Cal Banyan at the Banyan Hypnosis Center in Tustin, California.
I am a registered and Board Certified Hypnotist, an Accredited Certified Professional Hypnotherapy Instructor, a certified 5-PATH hypnotherapist, a certified 7th Path Self-hypnosis Teacher of the Ultimate 9th Degree, and am a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists. I use hypnosis to help people discover the subconscious reasons for their symptoms, behaviors, or habits. When they are discovered, I use certain tools and techniques to help release them and relearn a new positive way of thinking, subconsciously. This is called hypnotherapy.
I love learning more about hypnosis and hypnotherapy every day. As a matter of fact I pretty much live and breath hypnosis! I can talk about hypnosis for hours on end, so please contact me if you have any questions - I would be delighted to answer them! Hypnosis is so fascinating because at the root of hypnosis is our human consciousness and complexities of how we think and behave. The field of hypnosis is constantly changing, and I work daily to stay on top of the latest trends and techniques in the field.
My goal with hypnosis is to help bring it into mainstream healing and thinking. Hypnosis is extremely powerful - and can be used to treat all sorts of issues - including things we consider "everyday" issues - like eating too much, smoking, stress, anxiety, and getting rid of unwanted habits. Hypnosis works really well in those areas, and works really fast too - so I dream of a day where people think of going to their hypnosis practitioner like they think of going to their family doctor. But hypnosis is even more powerful than that - hypnosis is a very powerful self-improvement facilitator - that's why I consider myself a change catalyst and self-empowerment facilitator, not only does hypnosis help cure problems, but it also promotes positive improvements. Hypnosis can be used to overcome stage fright, and public speaking, but it can also be used to improve your personal best time in an athletic event. Hypnosis helps you to imagine the future you want, and when you're able to see your goals in front of you, achieving them suddenly becomes within reach.
I enjoy teaching classes on hypnosis, stress relief, healthy sleep, and I'm also a Certified Professional Hypnotherapy Instructor and I teach hypnosis and hypnotherapy certification classes multiple times a year.
