Hello! My name is Becky Shanks and I am grateful for the opportunity to connect. I am a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Reiki Master and Intuitive Sound Healing Practitioner. I identify as an Alchemical Hypnotherapist and Theta Healer, and incorporate Delores Cannon’s Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique (QHHT), as well as sound healing technology -- crystal singing bowls -- into my hypnotic healing practice, Presents of Mind.
Over six years ago, I used hypnosis to quit smoking cigarettes. When I came to full, waking consciousness, I thought to myself, “Huh… I could do that,” and I never smoked again. Six months later, I let go of binge drinking, recognized I wanted to help people and decided to go to hypnotherapy training… Six months after that in January 2014, I began studying hypnosis and regression therapy. I opened my practice a month later, as soon as I received certification stating I was qualified. I received my Reiki I attunement in September, 2014, and quickly realized the practice is deeply relaxing — hypnotic.
I am trained in medical hypnosis, but am by no means a doctor. I don't "treat" or 'heal;” I facilitate a process whereby, in applying the inherent, creative potential of mind, you may empower yourself to heal. I'm like a mind renovator... a brain trainer, and pleased to serve Metro Atlanta in-person, as well as the Global Community via the www. With over 450-hours of clinical study and five years of professional hypnosis and energy healing practice, I am here to encourage and empower; to lead you deep into the core of your Being where possibilities are limitless.
I am excited to share the tools that have enhanced my life and I am honored to walk beside; to gently guide you along at this most pivotal point in your journey. If you have questions about my practice, services, hypnosis, energy work, the power of sound, alchemy; if you are curious if or how hypnotherapy can help; if you are interested in holding sacred space for small groups, classes or ceremonies, please call 404.449.9266 or email Becky at PresentsOfMindHypnosis@gmail.com.
"I had lingering fears and mental "junk" leftover from my first birth experience and was aspiring for a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean). Becky was very easy to talk to; it felt natural to share intimate details with her. She carefully tailored suggestions for my personalized hypnotherapy session during which I felt at ease, safe, and deeply relaxed. When we finished, I felt alert, happy, and confident.
"I noticed a difference in my self-talk right away! I felt more confident, positive, and ready to take on my next labor and delivery experience. The hypnosis recording helped me remain calm and focused during my labor, which lasted a full 24-hours, and my son was born drug and IV-free via VBAC.
"With Becky's help, I achieved a total transformation in just a few weeks! She helped bring my birth dreams to fruition, and I truly became my own birth role model. For that, and for her, I will be forever grateful! Becky is a true treasure. **Erin
