Neuro-Linguistic Programming is a fabulously powerful technology, a set of tools and techniques for improving every area of your life that uses your brain! And that’s everything! As creator-genius, Richard Bandler, puts it, NLP is: “Driving your own bus.”
We all need to communicate–with your customers when you’re closing that big sale, with your boss when you’re negotiating a raise or explaining your ideas, even with your children and loved ones. Perhaps you don’t always communicate in a way that gets you the results you want.
Perhaps your boss doesn’t see the value in your ideas, or your customers don’t see the value of your product or service, even though you know it’s the best option for them, bar none. Or perhaps you want to communicate more effectively with those you love, strengthening and deepening those bonds. Perhaps you’ve been amazed at how easily some people seem to close deals, to get their way, to lead others by communicating with power and ease. You may wonder how they do it.
You may wonder if they have “magic,” exerting some mystical influence over others. It’s not magic–they’ve just learned the secrets behind masterful communication. So can you!
Imagine how you will feel and behave when you know precisely how to talk to anyone to get your message across in a way they find almost irresistible.
A Modeling Genius and a Master Linguist Joined Forces…
to develop the most powerful method of personal change and influence ever. Modeling genius Richard Bandler and master linguist John Grinder developed Neuro-Linguistic Programming during the 1970’s.
Modeling the most effective therapists and hypnotists of the 20th century, they uncovered the basic patterns of behavior and language that create change and influence. Since that time, NLP has developed into the most effective, scientific method for communication and persuasion as well as the most effective method for personal change in existence today. Politicians use NLP. Sales professionals use NLP. Advertisers use NLP. Hypnotherapists use NLP. Parents use NLP. The applications are limitless! It’s not Magic…
What is NLP? It’s not Magic…
It’s science that works like magic. Neuro-Linguistic Programming, or NLP, is recognized as the most effective persuasion and communication tool ever developed. Remember, Ronald Regan, the “great communicator?” His speech writers were among the first to use NLP techniques in his political speeches. And now, every politician uses it! NLP teaches you the science behind the magic so that you, too, are a master communicator, able to persuade and influence in ways you never before dreamed possible.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming is all about how your mind works, how we represent experience to ourselves, and how you use language (both verbal and nonverbal) to create your experience. How you learn. How you experience the world. How you influence others. How you code experience and retrieve experience.
NLP originated from a study of human excellence, how creative, successful people do what they do, and how you can learn to run your own mind elegantly, alter behavior, and replicate their success in your own life.
“I highly recommend Connie & Michael Brannan. They are continually updating their training with the most up-to-date skills I have developed and licensed internationally through the Society of Neuro-Linguistic Programming®.” – Dr. Richard Bandler.

NLP is an attitude! NLP is a methodology!
NLP is a technology! Neuro: Nervous system through which experience is received and processed through the senses. Linguistic: Language and non-verbal communication systems through which neural representations are coded, ordered, and given meaning. Programming: The ability to organize our communication and neurological systems to achieve specific desired goals and results.
The uses are limitless!
Here are just a few of the potential uses of your Neuro-Linguistic Programming Training program:
NLP for Therapists
Perhaps you are already a therapist using hypnosis or another kind of therapy, and, as a therapist, you are always looking for ways to help your client even more quickly and effectively. You may have heard some things about Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) such as its technique for stopping deep seated fears in twenty minutes or less, its technique for relieving allergies almost instantly or its techniques for opening up the world to you and your clients in ways you never even thought possible. If you don’t know these techniques, these and many more like them are yours with our Seattle NLP training.
Perhaps you have heard that NLP can change people’s emotional states almost instantly. How would it be if you could relieve stage fright in just a few minutes and be able to test the result so you knew it worked? How would it be if you could destroy triggers for smoking almost instantly? Or if you could destroy bad habits instantly, replacing them with good habits that seem completely natural and easy for your client?
Perhaps you are a therapist stuck in the grind of reading scripts, and would like to develop incredible skill at going beyond the scripts to understanding why they work or don’t work. Perhaps you would like to be able to develop therapeutic patter on the fly, precisely matching the things your client needs to hear to make the changes he or she wants. With our tools and techniques, it’s easy!
As you attend your NLP training with us, you find insight after insight that you can put to immediate use in your own practice, improving customer outcomes faster and more easily than you ever thought possible. As your client leaves your office, you know he will be telling all his friends how powerful and effective you are.
Anchoring/Anchor Collapse: Learn how to change a client’s emothional response to any context. Imagine easily changing your client’s worst fear into calmness and confindence. Imagine how easily you can change bad habits into good ones by giving your clients the feelings, attitudes and beliefs they need for change.
Calibration: Learn how to read someone, knowing whether the change work you have done is complete and will last.
Rapport: This important NLP skill improves every client intervention by making it easy for the client to follow your directions, and to accept what you are doing as a way to improve their life.
Meta-Model: This NLP technique helps you get to the root experiences of a client’s problem, and helps you “get inside” someone’s head to command greater influence and to make your change work more effective.
Milton Model: The hypnotic language patterns of Milton Erickson are so powerful, so effective, you can induce trance conversationally to increase you therapeutic influence 10, 20 40 times what it is now.
Swish Pattern: Change feelings, attitudes and beliefs quickly and easily for your, your customers and your clients.
Change Personal History: Learn to heal old wounds that keep you from moving forward. Get rid of all those images and sounds telling you you “can’t do” it.

NLP for Sales
Perhaps you feel you success in sales is held back by unwanted feelings. Perhaps you just don’t feel comfortable making cold calls so you avoid them like the plague. Perhaps you procrastinate, putting off projects until it’s too late or until you have to rush to complete them.
Or your confidence drops just when you’re about to make the big close. Perhaps you don’t always recognize when your customer or client is about to say “yes” to the deal and you oversell. Perhaps you stay in a rut because you fear rejection. How much would your sales improve–10, 20, 50%–if you could change what is holding you back the most?
What would it be like if you could instantly control your feelings? What if you felt excited and upbeat about cold calling, or even just comfortable doing it? What if your biggest worry about cold calling will be that no one will answer the phone? What would it be like if you felt powerful motivation to do the things you need to do to be incredibly successful? What would it be like if you always felt comfortable and confident selling your quality product or service, and your customer knew, felt it, and responded to it? What would it be like if your could “read your customer like a book,” knowing what precisely to say and do to close the deal?
A study at Harvard University of 100,000 salespeople showed that just 4% of the sales people in the US sell 94% of the goods and services. How much more successful will you be when you become a top sales person though the power of NLP. Imagine closing deals others thought un-closeable, and establishing such powerful rapport with your clients and customers that they can’t wait to do business with you again and again.
Here are just a few of things you learn that make you a dynamite salesperson:
Anchoring: Learn how to associate positive emotions to your products and services. Imagine being able to create irresistable desire on the part of your prospect for your quality product! Imagine them feeling so good about the interaction that they come back again and again to do more business with you.
Calibration: Learn how to read someone, knowing exactly where you are in the sales process and when it’s time to close the deal.
Rapport: This important NLP skill improves every interaction with your prospect.
Meta-Model: This NLP technique helps you get down to what the prospect really wants and needs to magnify your ability to sell 100 fold. Imagine being able to match your products with what the prospect really wants. How much would that increase your sales.
Milton Model: The hypnotic language patterns of Milton Erickson are so powerful, so effective, you can to increase you persuasive influence 10, 20 40 times what it is now.
And so much more!

NLP for Self-Improvement
Or maybe, on a personal level, you feel “stuck,” unable to move forward in your life, almost like some unconscious force is holding you back. Perhaps you have undesirable habits such as procrastination, lack of organization, inability to focus or concentrate that keeps you from your goal. There are many things that can hold you back, and, as you think now of some of those things, you begin to realize how much more effective you are with those behaviors, attitudes and beliefs merely a thing of the past. NLP does this for you! Change is immediate, powerful and lasting.
You’ll master these and more skills that will enable you to live a richer, fuller life.
Anchoring: Learn how to recreate emotional states you can access any time you want. Imagine feeling clear headed and confident in situations that used to cause you dread.
Calibration: Learn how to read someone, know what they are thinking and feeling.
Rapport: This important NLP skill improves every aspect of your life, from sales to friendships. NLP techniques are by far the best available for establishing rapport–quickly, easily and effectively.

Milton Model: The hypnotic language patterns of Milton Erickson are so powerful, so effective, you can induce trance conversationally to increase you influence 10, 20 40 times what it is now.

Improve Your Life in So Many Ways:
If you think “How to Win Friends and Influence People” is powerful, wait until you experience the power of our NLP™ trainings. NLP™ blows that book out of the water! I wonder how you’ll feel when others spontaneously are drawn to you, agree to your ideas, or perhaps start doing more and more business with you. Live life on purpose.
Are you tired of feeling like a piece of driftwood in life, like flotsam and jetsam bobbing on the surface of life? Just floating aimlessly, carried by currents outside your control?

Increase your sales by 10%, 20%, 50% or more
NLP is fast becoming recognized as the most effective communication tool to increase sales ever!

What’s more, NLP teaches you NEW selling strategies that just shatter the limits of the old. Shatter old sales records! I wonder how quickly you’ll notice how many new clients and how much more business these techniques bring you.
Grow your wealth
This is a world of abundance. Learn how to get yours. Many people are blocked from achieving their financial goals because of their limiting attitudes and beliefs about money and success. That it’s undeserved. That’s it’s somehow negative to pursue wealth. We’ve all heard people say: “It’s easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to go to heaven.” NLP teaches you to release these limiting attitudes allowing your natural power to achieve wealth and success to manifest.
Control your emotional states
Eliminate fear, stress, and uncertainty. Create joy, “C’mon Get Happy” now. There’s no reason not to have the life you love. To live the life you love. You can. You will. We’ll show you how. Learn how to react in any situation in a way that’s most likely to get you the outcome you desire.
It’s easy and quick to change your life
These tools streamline many, many processes for immediate change. What may have been a lifelong problem can evaporate like water in the desert, like an ice cube on the sidewalk melting in the August sun. Soon, there’s no trace. Once you have decided to make a change (and we can help you with that, too), and we unlock the vault to these secret NLP™ treasures with our training, change is now. No waiting!
The winning mindset
You are a winner! Maybe you just don’t know it yet. We’ll help you slip nicely into that power, and that knowing. A perfect slogan for NLP™ would be: “BE…all that you can be.” Only, that’s taken. It suits us better than it suits the military because we mean it and you can live it.
Conversational hypnotic NLP
This course teaches easy ways to use those language patterns shown and known to have the greatest impact on others. It’s like you’re putting them in an unknowing trance where the power of your language has maximum influence. Use these techniques and patterns to enhance sales, interpersonal relationships, and every aspect of your life.
Improve client interventions
Supercharge your hypnotic interventions by adding NLP™ change patterns to the mix. Upgrade those skills. Rev your hypnotherapy success to the max. NLP™ & Hypnosis – together they are the perfect marriage. We also teach hypnosis.
And so much more!

“Dear Connie and Michael, Thank you for an amazing workshop. You are both dynamic, and interesting. The information was easy to understand and follow.

I have been inspired by the new information presented, to apply it to particular current patients/clients of mine. Thank you so much.” –Sonja Merz, Kirkland, WA

As Tony always talks about, it’s constant, never-ending improvement. And so, this is just a really good experience along that path of learning.” –Jim Donahue, Seattle, WA
“I’ve just finished the NLP Practitioner course. I took it because I’m in sales and marketing. And I felt that by knowing NLP techniques such as Ericksonian language loops, calibrating, and body language, mirroring and establishing deeper connections with my clients, I’ll be able to increase my sales. What I’ve noticed is that, since about a month ago, my sales increased by about 30%. I am establishing deeper, more meaningful connections with my clients and I am able to help them better.
As well, we worked on a few minor issues I had such as fear of heights, and not being on time. That is completely gone. So, besides getting personal satisfaction and not having those little annoying things to deal with anymore, I’ve also increased my sales abilities. I’m certainly looking forward to the Master course as well.” — Roman Bogatchev, Seattle, WA

As an adviser in the area and a coach, the skills I’ve learned, and the methods I’ve learned here will help to provide tremendous value for everyone that I help and continue to help. I highly recommend spending the time to learn from Connie and Michael.” –Tony Sablan, Seattle, WA
“I just got done with basic hypnosis class. I finished this class right on the heels of my NLP basic Practitioner training. I found this class a valuable addition to my NLP skills. If somebody is taking NLP class, they should definitely take hypnosis as well, and vice versa, because the two classes go so well together. So, now I feel that my NLP skillset is greatly enhanced! I have a lot more tools in my tool belt. And now I feel like I can help people even more with my newfound hypnosis techniques. So, I highly recommend this class for everybody who wants to enhance their knowledge.” — Roman Bogatchev, Seattle, WA.
“Connie and Michael, The workshop was very valuable. I left with a growing understanding of the field of NLP. The more I see it demonstrated, the more I appreciate the power of the mind in all aspects of our lives. A day later, using memory and visualization, I can still recite the names of every one in attendance.
Having left with a treasure trove of articles from Connie, and clarity as to the intent of NLP from Michael, I’m ready to put my knowledge into practice. Thank you for a very informative workshop.” –Patricia Klinger., Bellevue, WA.
“Thank you for giving such a fun, interactive, and enlightening workshop! I left the event with many gems.” –Toni Best, Kirkland, WA

I recommend Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP to EVERYONE, and after witnessing my sales prowess, my employer now wants to meet with Connie.” Kirsten H, Olympia, WA
“I went to a seminar Connie led at Bellevue College TELOS programs. I was struck at once by her innate kindness and her genuine concern for all of us in the class. I was so helped that I signed up for her training program so that I could give others the type of amazing, healing experiences I was having. As a person who has been a teacher since 1967, I have run and been in over 350 credit hours worth of classes. I can say very honestly, I have never had such outstanding teachers before, and doubt I will see many even half as good in the future! Every day I face and do things I never believed possible before. I know I sound over the top, but I am so happy with her services that over the top is the only way to go.” Gaia H., Kirkland, WA
