Say yes…to deserving more

Meet Margot Schelew

When rehearsing for a Christmas concert at the age of 5 my teacher said, Margot, I’m going to give you a special job. This time when we sing, I want you to listen and make sure everyone else is doing it right. Thinking I was special, I did as I was told and, yes, it did sound better. Then she said, tomorrow night when we perform for the parents, how about you listen again… It wasn’t until years later that I realized she was implying that I had a terrible singing voice and I never again had confidence about my singing. When partnered with a co-worker on a Karaoke night 35 years later, I discovered he had had a similar experience. These hurtful experiences stay with us for a long time. What I love about hypnosis is that we can review these incidents from a safe place, release the emotion but keep the learnings and then move forward in life with a new sense of ease and confidence.

The power of positive thinking cannot be underestimated. I’m curious to know if you are the kind of person who has cultivated this way of thinking. I attended a conference called “The Power of Positive Thinking” back in 1975. I was a poor student at the time but knew this could change my life, and it did. I’ve been walking the walk ever since.

Right from the first time I experienced hypnosis I was intrigued. I knew immediately that I wanted to give this gift to others. Dr. Dwight Damon, who is considered the founding father of hypnotism as a separate and distinct profession once said “I believe that women have an innate “something” that makes them “naturals” in helping people through the use of hypnosis.” I became a hypnotherapist in 1999 and practiced out of a clinic in Dartmouth. I am a nurturer. I am a yogi of 50 years. I understand the benefits of discipline and relaxation. I am passionate about guiding my clients towards clarifying what they want in life and starting them on a path that leads to a brilliant future. If you have veered off course, be courageous and know that change is possible.
