Meet Kellie Lupe-Smith of Burbank Hypnosis

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kellie Lupe-Smith.

Kellie, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I have always loved people and had a long career in the healing arts. First as a body-worker then a yoga teacher. Working in those fields you get to witness a lot of situations where people hold on to emotion in their bodies. Many would burst into tears and not even know why. Somehow, somewhere they held on to emotional stress and finally got safe enough to let it go. This always intrigued me.

Our minds are fascinating, especially in the ways we are not conscious of. Learning about human behavior, how people are motivated (or not), and how our attitudes, values and beliefs make our choices was something I could not ignore. I had to learn more, so I did. Now a certified consulting hypnotist, speaker, trainer and owner of Burbank Hypnosis, I still love people and adore helping them get where they need to be through hypnosis, NLP and motivation techniques.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
The path to learning about the human mind and how people make choices is like Mister Toads Wild Ride! People are fascinating and not everyone uses help in the same way. When a person truly wants help and are open to receiving feedback, it’s a beautiful thing. They actually face where they lack maturity and start actually changing their behaviors and choices. It is like witnessing a miracle. But not everyone is ready to face their own patterns. Some people would truly prefer to keep their old habits and that is heartbreaking to watch.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Burbank Hypnosis – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
As soon as you walk through the doors of Burbank Hypnosis you see photos and success stories all over the walls. We have books of written stories, before and after photos and write-ups in the paper, etc. So we have a very open culture and people are proud of coming here.

Mostly, people ask for help with weight loss, smoking cessation, confidence building and pain management. It’s usually someone who can’t do it on their own. They have tried everything and are fed up. We help them address their true struggles such as a need to forgive or deal with an unhealthy relationship or change an unuseful view of themselves. We also work like a coach, with accountability and feedback. This is why we have the success that we have.

As a trainer, I really love teaching this kind of stuff to groups. It is so much fun! Corporate trainings, charitable organizations and clubs all love the educational and entertainment wrapped up in one.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I am currently having fun taking on students and mentees who want to start or improve a hypnosis business and also people who just want to learn for themselves and their families. Also, we have group trainings with guest trainers from around the world.
