Secret Smokers

Monday, October 21st, 2013

My name is Bob Crow. I’m a behavioral therapist. I am board certified in both clinical and medical hypnosis. I practice in Atlanta, Georgia at the Atlanta Center for Behavioral Change.

I would like to address this to the Secret Smokers. Those individuals that don’t want others to think less of them because they smoke. Well… it doesn’t really matter what others think, but it does matter what you are doing to either shorten your life or make your life less enjoyable to live, or both!

Many say that smoking relaxes them. It doesn’t! Period! They may think and believe that it does, but it doesn’t. It’s easy to prove that it doesn’t. When we monitor an individual’s blood pressure and pulse when they are smoking, the blood pressure and pulse both show an alarming increase. No one is relaxed when their blood pressure is up. High blood pressure can cause one to stroke. Plus… when anyone smokes – they become both a blood clotting machine and the smoking constricts the blood vessels in their brain by 40%. That’s 40%! May I have a show of hands of those that wouldn’t mind it if they had a stroke? Right!

In addition to running the very real risk of having a stroke, a smoker is asking to have severe eye problems like glaucoma and macular degeneration. Do you really want to watch television in your advancing years by sitting sideways in front of the TV and only a foot from it in order to make out anything at all on the screen?

Maybe individuals that come to see me come for another reason – they suffer from panic attacks. Did you realize that if you smoke and contract emphysema you run the very real risk of having big time panic attacks? You see as emphysema advances, the patient struggles mightily for each and every breath, and they never really get a good full breath. And as soon as they get that partial breath, they have to begin the struggle all over again to get another partial one. Would you really like to be a burden on your grandkids by having them have to push you through the mall in a wheel chair while you are sucking on a little green bottle of oxygen? And hoping you don’t run out?

Did I mention that not only does smoking put you at risk for lung cancer, but colon cancer, bladder cancer, breast cancer, testicular cancer, liver cancer, pancreatic cancer and any place that your blood flows?

When you smoke, the carcinogenic agents and poisons in the smoke flow to your heart and attack the heart muscles – weakening them. Your heart doesn’t like that.

Let me tell you what the experience will be like if you come and allow me to enable you to become a non smoker.

  • You won’t want to smoke anymore! In fact… most individuals have zero desire to smoke after the very first session. You will need to come to the next two sessions and listen to the CDs of those sessions for reinforcement.
  • You will not be climbing the walls.
  • You will not be anxious.
  • You will not crave cigarettes or smokeless tobacco products.
  • You will wonder why you every smoked in the first place!

I guess it’s decided then. You don’t want to die from smoking. You don’t want the enjoyment of life to be diminished, and you do want to become a non smoker.

Call Bob Crow at 404.277.1827 and make your appointment to become a non smoker!

Have you ever really done your best? Really?

Saturday, August 3rd, 2013

In this chapter we’re going to discuss how individuals that have developed certain skills whether it be in sales, sports, public speaking, playing the piano, acting or whatever, that are performing below their skill level, can benefit greatly from hypnotherapy. Using hypnosis will enable one to change how they see themselves performing. Hypnotherapy will sharpen their skills and their abilities and will bring about startling improvements in their performance.

When a person analyzes their performance they are doing so with the beta or conscious mind. The nick name for the conscious mind is the critical mind. Interesting isn’t it? Have you ever really done your best? Really? Have you ever wanted to do your best, but came up short? Have you ever had the feeling deep down, that maybe you could have done better? That something was holding you back? That possibly… just possibly, even though you didn’t mean to or want to, that you were somehow sabotaging yourself? Unwittingly… you probably were. Most people’s belief system in their abilities has been corrupted by others opinions of them, including parents and family as they were growing up, by what has been said to them.

I’m Bob Crow. I’m a behavioral therapist practicing in Atlanta GA. I’m board certified in clinical and medical hypnotherapy. A great deal of my practice is performance oriented. I work with people that wish to improve their performance in sports, sales, weight loss, public speaking, marital relationships, family relationships, and work place relationships – in fact anywhere they wish to excel – hypnosis will be very beneficial.

How a person sees them self is the most determining factor in how they’ll perform. If one sees themselves in their subconscious mind as an average or a below average performer, no matter how much motivation or training they receive, they will perform in an average or below average fashion. Period. If our subconscious sees us as having limited abilities – that is how we will perform.

Why doesn’t “psyching” yourself up – work? It’s because when one attempts to psych themselves up; the only tool at their disposal is the conscious mind. But… that isn’t where the lack of confidence and limiting beliefs are located! Those beliefs are located in the cognitive maps of the subconscious mind. Therefore to bring about the desired increase in performance, one must work with the subconscious mind, and the only way that the subconscious mind can be accessed deliberately is through hypnosis. That’s why hypnosis is known as the bridge to the subconscious mind.

I have individuals that come to see me because they want to be able to speak in public. With hypnosis, I work with them not just to be able to deliver the speech without messing up – but to make a truly exciting, interesting and compelling speech. You can’t do that unless you see yourself as a great public speaker in your subconscious mind.

We’ve discussed how trying to psych yourself using your conscious mind can’t work long term and short with any discernible amount of difference. So in whatever area of your life, where just trying harder didn’t seem to make any appreciable difference, call Bob Crow at 404.277.1827 for a complimentary consultation. We’ll visit about what you are wanting to improve at and you can determine whether you want to utilize the power of hypnosis – not to just do better, but to excel!

Need to… or want to – which is more important?

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

My name is Bob Crow. I’m a behavioral therapist that is board certified in both clinical and medical hypnotherapy. I practice in Atlanta, Georgia at the Atlanta Center for Behavioral Change.

With hypnotherapy it’s impossible for me to make someone do something that they don’t want to do – stage hypnosis shows to the contrary. Hypnosis therapy will enable an individual to make behavioral changes that they want to make. There may be changes that they need to make, but wanting to make them is more important than needing to make them. The want to needs to be stronger than the need to!

For example – the evidence is undisputable that cigarette smoking does cause several kinds of cancer in addition to lung cancer. The 5000 to 7000 carcinogenic agents in every cigarette are absorbed by the blood in the lungs. This blood is pumped throughout the entire body. Hence one can also contract testicular, ovarian, bladder, breast, kidney, liver and well you get the picture. The important thing is for a smoker to not only know that he or she needs to stop smoking, but more importantly that they must want to stop smoking as well.

An obese individual knows that a high fat, high sugar and high simple carbohydrate diet can bring on and exacerbate diabetes, colon cancer, breast cancer and heart disease. The most important thing is not for an individual to know that they need to immediately change their eating choices and habits, but more importantly that they want to change their eating behavior.

If a person wants to make a behavioral change, hypnosis by a qualified hypnotherapist most definitely is the best choice. The smoking and overeating habits reside in the cognitive maps of the subconscious mind, therefore resolutions to stop smoking or eat healthier and in the correct amounts won’t enable the individual to change because that person is trying to accomplish that with their conscious mind. Long term – that simply cannot be done. Remember – your want to must be greater than your need to!

I invite you to call me, Bob Crow for a consultation for any area of your life that you feel needs behavioral change. Call Bob Crow at 404.277.1827 at the Atlanta Center for Behavioral Change.

About taking action

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

Hypnosis is the remedy for failing to take action. Rarely does one continue to not take action for any other reason than fear. Kicking the can down the road, preparing and over preparing, delaying for just the right moment are all nothing more than procrastination. Period. Rationalization is just lying to yourself! An individual paralyzed by fear will most often dispute and deny this is the case. They continue to come up with reasons – actually their excuses to delay the action that they need to take. Of course they vehemently defend that they’re avoiding taking this action.

Why doesn’t reading self help books and listening to positive CDs help? It’s because those efforts can only access the conscious mind! But… the fear that keeps one from taking action is located in the subconscious mind!

Quite often the individual wanting to sell someone something will have one coffee meeting after another without ever… asking for the business! They don’t want to ask for the business, because the individual that they’re selling to might… say no! An individual paralyzed by fear doesn’t realize it, but by putting off taking the action or asking for the order, they feel that they can’t be turned down, so therefore they haven’t failed!

If you think that this might be something that you need to confront, call Bob Crow at 404.277.1827 for a complimentary consultation. Bob Crow is a behavioral therapist, board certified in clinical and medical hypnotherapy. Bob Crow is a co founder of the Atlanta Center for Behavioral Change.
