Clients who show very little commitment and do not complete their assignments.

WHY USE HYPNOSIS, NLP, & TIME LINE THERAPY™?
Hypnosis is a state of being in complete comfort and relaxation. It can be described as "concentrated attention" and characterized by an awake-sleep state (also alpha or theta state). Hypnosis is usually experienced in trance, where a high level of change can be experienced at an unconscious level.
If you could change consciously, you would, wouldn't you? However, if you are unable to make your desired changes consciously, then the unconscious mind may be running the show. At High Vibe Business Coaching with Melissa Clough, I will help you make positive changes at an unconscious level through the use of hypnosis.
Hypnosis is a state of being in complete comfort and relaxation. It can best be described as "concentrated attention" and characterized by an awake-sleep state (also alpha or theta state). Hypnosis is usually experienced in trance, where a high level of change can be experienced at an unconscious level.
During your session at High Vibe Business Coaching with Melissa Clough, you are in complete control of your conscious state, just as you would be during meditation, or being in a state of high concentration. For example, have you ever been so engaged in an activity, such as being glued to a movie, enthralled in a book, or super focused in a sport or project, that you don't notice anything else around you? Hypnosis is no different. As you are guided to deepen your awareness of your unconscious mind, you will begin to lose involvement in your external surroundings. However, just as you can break your focus from any activity, you can also come out of hypnosis at any time you desire. Therefore, you are always in control of being in trance.
The primary state of consciousness that is most referred to in hypnosis/hypnotherapy is the Alpha state. This is the state of mind where one is half-asleep, half-awake, and is in a state of deep relaxation or meditation. Once you allow yourself to enter an alpha state, your inner-talk will begin to slow down and you will begin to become more image-oriented, thus being guided to make positive changes in your life.
In hypnosis, some may also experience the theta state, going into a very deep relaxation. Many people meditate for hours to get to this state of complete, and deep calmness of the mind. Many consider that being in the Gamma (higher brain activity in the consciousness revolved around perception) Theta state is a favorable state to produce instant healing.
Scientific discoveries show that certain brain wave frequencies (especially the Alpha and Theta) may:
1. Relieve stress and promote a lasting and substantial reduction in people prone to anxiety states.
2. Facilitate a deep physical relaxation and mental clarity.
3. Increase verbal ability and performance IQ.
4. Better synchronize the two hemispheres of the brain.
5. Recall mental images and spontaneous imaginative/creative thinking.
6. Reduce pain, stimulate the release of endorphins, and promote euphoria.
Clients often come to me once they have "tried it all" and are ready to seek change at an unconscious level. It's completely "normal" to be skeptical at first, especially being that you may have previously tried various methods to produce behavioral change that have not given you the results you wanted. However, you will most likely find that once you allow yourself to tap into your ability to enter this unique state of consciousness, you will open the door to countless possibilities for healing, self-exploration, and positive change.
NLP is the study of successful behavior. It incorporates methods of retraining the mind in order to produce consistent, desired behavioral results in your life.
Neuro defines the mind, linguistic = language, and programming means retraining; hence, retraining the mind to communicate the most effective language towards ourselves and to others. It has also been coined, "the study of excellence."
NLP processes can be used for success in health, relationships, business, and all other areas of your life. It is extremely effective at producing positive changes quickly and comfortably to match your specific needs, drive your personal growth, and enhance your role in any particular areas you'd like to address. NLP is a great way to help you delve deeper into the root cause of your issue, by guiding a series of specific questions, visualizations, or changes of perception.
NLP techniques can be used alone on a conscious level, but can also be highly effective when combined with hypnosis to gain breakthrough changes and achieve your desired results on both conscious and unconscious levels.
TIME LINE THERAPY™:
At ATX Hypnosis, Time Line Therapy™(TLT) techniques are used in combination with NLP and hypnosis. TLT can be extremely effective at helping you eliminate/overcome challenges from your past, in order to help you achieve your goals for the future.
Time Line Therapy™ (TLT) was created by Dr. Tad James, and utilizes methods to help you be free of issues from your past so that you can move forward with your desires and goals for the future. Time Line Therapy™ has become widely known over the years as a very effective way to help clients achieve their desired results quickly, while creating comfortable and lasting changes.
High Vibe business coaching with Melissa Clough effectively merges Time Line Therapy™ techniques, in combination with Hypnosis and NLP in order to enable you to be free of issues from your past that have been blocking you from living your life the most successful way possible. Issues and traumatic events, that have persisted since as early as childhood, can suddenly be neutral memories, freeing you to live your life more powerfully and gain emotional control over your life.
Time Line Therapy™ can help you break free of:
And help you:
Set & achieve goals or outcomes
Live your life more freely
And create the life you want now.
Lasting behavioral change begins at an unconscious level. By becoming aware of your "time line," you will learn how you store all of your unconscious memories at a subconscious level. Conscious decisions to change are most effective when conducted at this level.
As best described by Dr. Tad James, The Time Line Therapy ™ process allows you to work at the unconscious level to release the effects of negative beliefs, decisions and emotions arising from past experiences. It brings about changes in “inappropriate” programming in minutes rather than days, months or years.
Unwarranted emotional reactions such as unreasonable sadness, anger, depression, anxiety and fear or phobic reactions are responsible for preventing people achieving what they want in life. At High Vibe business coaching with Melissa Clough, Time Line Therapy ™, used in combination with NLP and hypnosis, is an extremely effective way to help you gain emotional control over your life.
WHY HAVE A CONSULTATION?
The free initial consultation is a time for me to understand your needs and for both you and I to determine if hypnosis is right for you. It takes between 20-30 minutes.
WHAT IS TRANCE?
Trance is the state in which you allow yourself to enter during hypnosis. It is a state of being half-conscious, in complete relaxation. It can also be described as being in an alpha state, an awake sleep state. You have ultimate control in choosing whether to be in trance or not. Once you choose to utilize hypnosis to improve your behavior, or be rid of an issue, you will find deep, lasting change.
WILL I LOSE CONTROL?
At High Vibe business coaching with Melissa Clough, you are always in control. It is not possible for anyone to be forced into trance. Hypnosis simply allows you to become fully relaxed and comfortable, which makes you acutely aware of your surroundings and what you are doing. You have complete control to come out of of trance at any time, whenever you wish.
Additionally, success coaches do not try to control the client's thinking, but instead empowers the client to discover his/her own inner resources, and supports the client in taking responsibility for his/her own thinking and behavior. Therefore, change is initiated and followed through on by the client.
DO I HAVE TO REVEAL MY PRIVATE ISSUES?
The great thing about hypnosis & NLP is that it can be completely content-free. You are at total liberty to reveal as much or as little about your issues as you'd like. At High Vibe business coaching with Melissa Clough, I respect your privacy and will never ask you to discuss something you don't feel comfortable talking about. It is still very possible to have an effective session through the various processes that I use. However, providing some content allows me to help you further.
WHAT IF I DON'T COME OUT OF TRANCE?
It is impossible to be "stuck" in trance. Again, you are totally in control of your session and your state. Once you come out of hypnosis, you will simply feel refreshed and awake, having experienced a great sense of achievement.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN "UNCONSCIOUS" AND "SUBCONSCIOUS"?
In psychology, Sigmund Freud used the term, "unconscious," to refer to our thoughts that we are unaware of, which later became the term, "subconscious." Psychology still often refers to the unconscious mind as the thoughts or experiences that we do not have access to, unless remembering is induced in some way, such as hypnosis. Milton Erickson, the "Father of Hypnosis" used the word "unconscious" to describe the behaviors, beliefs, and thoughts on a deeper level; therefore, in NLP & hypnosis, we often refer to the unconscious mind for learnings.
HOW DO I KNOW IF HYPNOSIS IS FOR ME?
There is only one way for you to find out if hypnosis is for you, by coming to an initial consultation so that you can be sure that High Vibe business coaching with Melissa Clough is the right option for you. I want you to be completely comfortable working with me, so no matter what you decide, your initial 20 min. consultation is completely free.
WHY DO I HAVE TO COMMIT TO 4 SESSIONS?
Because consistency is key in retraining the mind, and each session builds upon the previous session's framework, a 4 session commitment is required, with weekly sessions. No more than 2 weeks between sessions is recommended.
The length of time to achieve success varies by person. However, the average amount of sessions it usually takes for me to help my clients let go of issues is between 4-6 sessions. It usually takes 4. However, it should not take any more than 6 appointments. Any appointment scheduled after the 4 session program will be charged as a single session.
WHAT WILL IT COST?
The initial consultation is always free. It is important to consider how much you value letting go of your issue to live with more freedom from limitations.
What makes my work unique is my combination of advanced Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) techniques, combined with Time Line Therapy™ and hypnosis, that helps you get to the core of your issue- quickly and effectively.
Additionally, as a certified trainer of NLP, I certify other practitioners to become coaches. With expert levelmethods, I will help you realize your own power to change, and to reach your potential to be the best YOU with proven master techniques.
Unlike traditional ongoing therapy that can cost thousands over time, Mindset sessions start at $250 per session, and Business Coaching sessions at $385/session, with discounted packages. I will work with you to gain the tools and strategies you need to achieve your goals on average of just 4-6 sessions.
For your convenience, credit cards accepted, as well as Paypal Financing.
DO YOU TAKE MY INSURANCE?
Insurance coverage varies and while I do not accept insurance, you may be able to submit a claim to your insurance company for reimbursement, depending on your coverage. Remember, you can often deduct consulting/coaching fees from your taxes at the end of the year as a business expense. Discuss this with your CPA.
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELATION POLICY?
A valid credit card is required to hold your reservation and will not be charged unless your appointment is canceled less than 24 hours before your session. Because your appointment time is reserved specifically for you, a fee of the full rate of the session will be charged for cancelations with less than 24 hours notice. Consultations will be charged $50 for no-shows (see full policy here). This ensures your commitment, as well as compensates for my time.
Additionally, because our work together is a collaborative effort, you will be given tasks to complete outside of our sessions, which greatly enhances your results. By your committing to your program, I am also committed to helping you achieve your goals. Therefore, if you do not complete your given assignments and bring at the time of your session, you may be asked to forfeit your session, without a refund. This ensures that you achieve the best results possible!
CAN A DEPENDENCY OCCUR BETWEEN CLIENT & SUCCESS COACH?
Because my goal as a success coach is to empower you to be your best and maximize opportunities to accelerate your growth, an emotional, psychological dependency is not likely created. While you may find a success coach is necessary to gain the motivation or tools to grow and move past blocks, a success coach serves as a source of support, motivation, and assists you in discovering building blocks and strategies to create a better quality of life for yourself.
DO YOU GUARANTEE RESULTS?
Because success varies by individual based on a number of factors, such as the client's commitment, dedication, and efforts; results are not guaranteed. I usually experience a 92% success rates with my clients, and the other 8% do not get their results usually due to lack of effort on their part to complete the tasks given outside of the sessions.
CAN I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT FOR SOMEONE ELSE?
Because results are not effective when the client does not truly want to change, I require that each client schedules his/her own appointment personally. You may request information for someone else, but ultimately, he/she must make take action to change. This starts with the first step in making the appointment.
WHO DO YOU WORK WITH?
At this time, I specialize in working with coaches in resolving their own limiting beliefs that are preventing them from helping others to their best capacity. I also work with coaches on their business systems to alleviate entrepreneurial stresses.
DO YOU CONDUCT WORKSHOPS/SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS FOR BUSINESSES?
Yes! I offer a variety of empowerment workshops to take your team to the next level of success.
With my Success and Empowerment Trainings, I will teach you and your staff how to:
Wake up the power of your mind to impact your performance and achieve your goals, easily & effortlessly.
Gain instant rapport with clients and team members.
Leadership development strategies & team building.
Gain ultimate confidence to succeed in your career.
Vision planning & goal setting strategies for impactful results.
Be an effective communicator to build powerful relationships with clients, staff, and team members.
Be an effective communicator to build powerful relationships with clients, staff, and team members.

My background incudes holding a Master's degree in Organizational Psychology, the scientific study and application of psychological theories in the workplace, which focuses on behavorial, physical, and emotional wellbeing in organizations. I have experience as a business consultant for start-ups, as well as co-owning and running a multi-million dollar dental practice.
I combine my experience as a success coach, as well as my workplace psychology experience in consulting, and training & development to bring fresh insights to organizations, leadership development, and empowerment to those who are ready to make massive improvements in their career.
WHY IS HYPNOSIS & SUCCESS COACHING BECOMING SO POPULAR?
Hypnosis and success coaching are becoming popular for a number of reasons:
A growing number of people are being awakened to new possibilities in their lives, no longer doing what they "should" be doing according to society, but seeking self-discovery, purpose, and meaning in their lives. When someone simply cannot see a way of getting to where he/she want to be, or does not know how to orient his/her life around these changes, then a success coach can help with both.
Many are becoming aware of and open to the various alternative therapies out there, as more scientific evidence is being revealed about the effectiveness of positve psychology and hypnosis.
People are beginning to realize that it is possible to accomplish a life they love, whereas years ago it may have felt impossible. As a success coach, I am not a magician, but I do have a very large tool kit to assist you in making your big dream become a big reality.
IS IT A QUICK FIX?
Despite the advanced hypnotherapy techniques that I use with clients to help them gain amazing transformations, I do not have a "magic wand," and do not "cure" anyone of their issues. Even though it may seem like a "quick fix" to be free from an issue in just 3-4 sessions, my unique approach is to help you get to the deep, underlying core of your issue immediately. Unlike other therapies that work over time, I help you find your power within to retrain your mind at an unconscious level, right away.
With these techniques in place, it is possible for clients to let go of issues they've been holding on to for years, even decades. In fact, I have witnessed people let go of 20 years of guilt, a decade of depression, and over 40 years of allergies. So no matter how long you've been holding onto an issue, no matter how big or how small, I'm here to help you get your desired results.
