My name is Sue Schmidt and I am a Hypnotherapist in Louisville, CO. I became interested in hypnosis via a intense bout of insomnia in my mid thirties. I tried acupuncture, counseling, supplements, and medication. Nothing worked! That is not to say any one of these modalities may be helpful to other people experiencing insomnia, they just didn't work for me, at least in terms of sleep.
Finally, I found a book called “Self Hypnosis”. I followed the protocols in this modest little book and it worked! I was hooked. I read whatever I could about hypnosis and begin creating my own self hypnosis tapes. My success with self hypnosis prompted me to become a certified Hypnotherapist in 2003.
Today, I help people with a variety of issues: sleep, stress management, anxiety, trauma, addictions (or I prefer the label difficult habits.) I can also help people who want to connect with their deeper nature, their higher self and Spirit. Insights, intuitions and spiritual awareness comes to us through our subconscious mind and so hypnosis can help us connect to this deep well of inspiration and comfort.
So lets try some hypnosis!
Have a seat somewhere comfortable where it is safe to close your eyes. Just take a moment to check in with yourself….how stressed am I today? Without judgement, just notice.
In a moment I’m going to tell you to close your eyes, and bring the thumb and fore finger of both hands together. You are going to inhale, and when you exhale you’ll count…..3…….2……1…and a wave of relaxation will run through your body from the top or your head to the tips of your toes.
Ready? Let’s begin.
Close your eyes and bring the thumb and forefingers together. Inhale deeply, and as you exhale count 3….2….1….. Feel a wave of warm relaxation running through your body from the top of your head to the tips of your toes.
Just rest for a moment in this more relaxed state.
You can repeat this a few times if you like.
Then, open your eyes and come back to your surroundings. Feel your feet on the floor and your back against the chair. How do you feel? Compare your state now to how you felt a few minutes ago. Let me know in the comments what you experienced!
Some of us , when asked to relax, feel even more anxiety. If that’s you, don’t worry! Anyone can learn to use self hypnosis. You may just need more support and guidance. And if you had that reaction, and know it’s a pattern, that is good information for you and may provide a direction for your healing.
I hope these exercises gave you a taste of how powerful self hypnosis is. And that you have a better understanding of how your mind works.
I see myself as a teacher who can teach you how to reliably access your subconscious mind for healing, and tools you can use to create positive change in yourself and your life.
I also offer guided meditations to help you on your journey and can create a personalized hypnosis program just for you. Using a program that is geared toward your unique goals and issues is more powerful than using any generic audio program.

All the Best,

Sue Schmidt Hypnotherapist
Sue has been providing me with thoughtful and skilled hypnotherapy treatment for several issues over the course of many years. The hypnotherapy has helped me heal so many physical and mental issues.
I use her Guided Meditations on my phone with headphones while I'm in the dentist chair or on an airline flight. They help me stay calm and reduce my stress. They work every time.
Hypnotherapy with Sue provides an ideal and timely remedy to access the richness of the subconscious, a process that allows for deep relaxation and healing. My sessions with Sue are an antidote to my typically hyper conscious state.
I have been a client of Susan for many years now. Our work together has helped me lower anxiety, improve my depression and helped me express meaningful emotions. I really appreciate Susan as a hypnotherapist for her professionalism, quality of work (high quality audio files) and compassionate approach to healing others. I am so glad for our work together and have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone seeking hypnotherapy.
