Pediatric / Family Hypnotherapy
When she is not teaching, Lori maintains an adult and pediatric hypnotherapy practice to help kids and adults overcome habit, attitudes or beliefs than are blocking movement forward. Hypnosis and creative writing both utilize the imaginative parts of the brain we all have access to but often do not realize. Imagination is more of the “horsepower” of the brain. Begin imagining yourself as a writer and you become one. Plumdiggity! is written to tap imagination, improve writing skills and attitude, and provide writing opportunity for self exploration in areas of motivation, focus, and discipline. Lori enjoys teaching basic principles of suggestibility to classroom teachers. The influence of words from authority figures cannot be underestimated. They often reinforce the behaviors one would never intentionally reinforce, particularly the words, “You can’t_____” (sit still, focus, pay attention, wait your turn…) or “You never ____” (listen, do things right away, finish the assignment, write legibly, have patience, come prepared) or “You are _____” (slow, lazy, inattentive, unfocused, sloppy, messy…). When we understand suggestibility, we can use language to increase the habits or behaviors in need of change. Plumdiggity! Words matter.
