The context for this work is always your belief system, your goals and your desire to discover your truth and create change. Your deep inner mind knows best, so trust yourself. You can't do this wrong. Your patience and persistence will bring you to the resolution you seek. Still, let's clarify. What this is...is a process. What this is not...an opportunity to blame anyone -- yourself or others. Just agree to moving forward and be your own agent of change to bring shape to the dynamic reality you want to enjoy now.
We are truly partners in this process but I am more like a tour guide on your journey to return you to a balanced state where you have perspective and insight. A state where you are reminded that you are perfect, whole and complete and you can handle anything. What you get out of this process will be a function of what you put in.
So, take great action and expect great results!
And be ready for Powerful Positive Change!

Hypnosis is a natural state of the mind that you've probably accessed hundreds of times in your life time - while driving down a boring stretch of road, watching an exciting movie, listening to your favorite song, and even day dreaming. You just never knew that's what it was. While in this state, you are hyper aware and able to engage your deep inner mind where your emotions, imagination and creativity reside. We get you into this state through relaxation and a series of suggestions and then while we are there, we transform the negative emotions and limiting beliefs holding you back. Because getting into and working within the state depends on the client's willingness to accept suggestions, going into Hypnosis and staying in Hypnosis is a choice -- it's really SELF hypnosis.
Consider this list of notable figures who found success with Hypnosis:
*Tiger Woods began seeing a hypnotist at the age of 13, to help him to block out distractions and focus on the golf course.
*Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud developed modern psychiatry as a result of learning about and practicing hypnosis.
*Albert Einstein was known to have hypnosis sessions every afternoon. His theory of relativity came to him during one of these sessions.
*Sir Winston Churchill used post-hypnotic suggestions in order to stay awake and carry out his duties as Prime Minister during WWII.
*Sylvester Stallone worked with the famous hypnotherapist Gil Boyne while filming Rocky in 1975.
*Jackie Kennedy Onassis used hypnotherapy to relive and let go of tragic events in her life.
*Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton used Hypno-Birthing for the birth of Prince George.

Dani received her Hypnosis training from the premiere Hypnotherapy Institute in the state, if not the country - The Institute of Interpersonal Hypnotherapy (formerly Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy). She is also a supervisor for the school and certified examiner at both the Tampa and Orlando Externship locations.
Dani is also a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists, the Association for Certified Hypnotist Examiners and the International Association of Interpersonal Hypnotherapists, who currently uphold the highest ethical, performance and training standards for practitioners of this powerful work
The International Coach Federation defines coaching as the following:
"Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Coaches honor the client as the expert in his or her life and work and believe every client is creative, resourceful and whole. Standing on this foundation, the coach's responsibility is to:
*Discover, clarify, and align with what the client wants to achieve.
*Encourage client self-discovery
*Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies
*Hold the client responsible and accountable
This process helps clients dramatically improve their outlook on work and life, while improving their leadership skills and unlocking their potential."

Parts Work is based on the idea that our subconscious mind finds it efficient to compartmentalize as you navigate different contexts of your life. And just like you may have a parent part, or a son or daughter part, friend or employee part, depending on the context you find yourself in, the relevant "part" that can best handle that context will come forward and perform behaviors designed to keep you safe and comfortable. For example . . .a part that handles stress with a cigarette and another part that that knows it can choose a break and some deep breathing.
All parts are valid and performing important functions. More important, they are performing their jobs expertly and with life or death intentions. And that can sometimes create internal conflict. In the hypnotic state, we dialog with the conflicting parts, validate them, transform their behavior and ultimately get all parts on board with your highest goal. The process feels more like facilitated negotiation and clients clients walk away with an incredible feeling of empowerment.
Dani's Parts Work training, in the tradition of Charles Tebbits and Roy Hunter, was an extensive component of her comprehensive education at The Institute of Interpersonal Hypnotherapy (Formerly The Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy).
Every experience is stored somewhere in the mind and has the potential to shape in part or whole our perceptions and responses to our world. Memories of past events and exchanges are stored in your mind similar to how data is stored on your computer’s hard drive – every data bit cataloged several layers deep in subdirectories directories and on standby for immediate recall in the appropriate (or sometimes inappropriate) situation. The problem is, we often do not recall storing the data bits in the first place, much less the programs they run on our hard drive. Rather, we just suffer the effects of the program running.
Regression is like exploring the directories to isolate the initial sensitizing events or relationships and dissolve the negative emotions and limiting beliefs connected to them. Most of the time, this exploration takes us back to childhood events. Sometimes it takes us back to birth, and even (if you are open to the idea) back to a previous life. Whether real or metaphor, this exploration during hypnosis allows a client the freedom to see events again, reframe the beliefs and negative emotions associated with it and associate more positive and empowering emotions moving forward. The happy result is a transformed physical and emotional sensation associated with "yesterday" and transformed behavior "today."
Dani's Regression expertise follows in the tradition and techniques of Gil Boyne, Matthew Brownstein, Dr. Brian Weiss, and Dr. Michael Newton. Specific extensive training in childhood, natal and past life regression was received at The Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy.
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is also commonly known as Tapping or Meridian Tapping Technique (MTT). Tapping is a basic form of acupressure that literally taps into specific meridians on the head and chest, stimulating the flow of energy along body’s neural-network while you think about your specific problem and express positive reframes. The combination of tapping while expressing the negative emotions followed by the positive affirmations works to clear the emotional blocks that the issue has stored in your body.
Essentially, the technique communicates to your body that the situation you are dealing with right now, is not an emergency. Then it instructs your body to turn off the alarm sensors and calm down. When you are calm, you have perspective. When you have perspective, you have insight and you can tap into your deep inner resources to handle any situation. Used for everything from overwhelm to sports performance, fear of flying to impulse control, removing blocks to financial success and help with cravings. Tapping allows us to peel away the multiple layers of an issue and clear them one at time. Also, when used in the hypnotic state during regression, we can clear the negative associations formed by the younger or past life self, change the foundations of the reactions at the source. You will pick up Tapping quickly and apply it to many feelings and beliefs with success and ease.

From conception, we have been in a perpetual state of making sense of our world. Bucketing information for protection, for pleasure, for easy access and quick response, for life or death. We have been creating patterns for EVERYTHING from eating, sleeping, learning and loving, to working, playing and exercising. Some of the patterns we have created are more complex than others but they all have one thing in common – they start with a thought that triggers some kind of physiological response in our bodies. Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) comprises a set of techniques that allows us to observe how we take information in, process it for meaning and execute a pattern related to it. NLP allows us to be observers of these patterns. Being an observer is the first step in being able to break free from the disruptive, maladaptive patterns.
NLP is not a single tool and it does not require being in the hypnotic state. In fact, NLP can be successfully employed during regular discussion and multiple strategies may be used concurrently to evoke positive changes in a client’s thoughts, behaviors and associations. NLP targets changes in thinking, behavior and perspective of past memories and how the patterns from those past events are playing out in the current issue. The goal is to change how the brain views the situation, so the client can experience different and improved physiological and psychological associations and achieve the desired outcome.
Dani is a Licensed Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming having received her training directly from the co-creator, Richard Bandler and Master Trainers John and Kathleen Lavalle with the Society of NLP - NLP Seminars Group International.
