In 1980, Linda-Ann Stewart began coaching (before it was called that), speaking and facilitating groups on the topics of empowerment, affirmations, personal development and changing your mindset. She opened her private hypnotherapy practice in 1990, a few years after moving to Sedona, AZ. Over the years, she's helped hundreds of people to reduce stress, raise their self-esteem, break negative habits, achieve their goals and improve their lives.
For over seven years, she facilitated county Tobacco-Cessation classes, addressing the behaviors, thoughts and feelings of the tobacco-user. She pointed out how their beliefs affected their choice whether to smoke or not. Scores of people successfully became tobacco-free.
As a writer, she's had 200 articles on empowerment, mindset, and motivation published in magazines, newsletters and online. Using a holistic approach, Linda-Ann explains how a person's beliefs, attitudes and expectations can become a self-fulfilling prophecy for success or failure.
Linda-Ann helps people recognize how their thoughts can negatively affect their performance and productivity, and illustrates how to create positive attitudes and increased efficiency. Based on her decades of experience in helping clients, she's an authority on how you can be hypnotized by your mindset to either sabotage yourself or achieve your goals.
Linda-Ann has spoken at many venues in the Southwest U.S., including: associations, organizations, schools, and industry conferences. She's given presentations and workshops at annual hypnotherapy symposiums, and won a "Member of the Year" award. As professional member of the National Speaker's Association, she empowers people to recognize new possibilities and realize their full potential.

Undo The Voodoo That You Do So Well
You hypnotize yourself every day. This is normal, though, unless you're hypnotizing yourself to reinforce negative messages. These unconscious messages, beliefs or attitudes can make you unhappy, unproductive or underachieving. Undo The Voodoo shows you how to stop this trance-like self-sabotage, and leads to more easily attained goals, increased productivity and an overall sense of accomplishment and well-being. This presentation will show you how to break the trance of your mindset.
