How does your business stand out?

HYPNOTHERAPY Hypnosis is one of the most powerful tools for helping people develop new patterns in their lives. I use it a LOT when doing stress coaching to bring lasting transformation to people. Just a few of that things that I address with hypnosis are: Weight Control • Get to your desired weight by getting rid of habits that are preventing it • Curb your appetite for foods that are keeping the pounds on • Start liking what you see on the outside and in the mirror • Change how you feel about yourself on the inside Addiction • Get control your life back • Find new healthy patterns for your well-being • Experience nonjudgmental guidance from someone who cares about you • Reconnect with your social sphere in a supportive way Other hypnosis areas that we may address are: • Fears and phobias • Anxiety • Past Life Regression • Pain Management LIFE COACHING My clients are open and know that change is needed. They have an idea of currently what’s not working for them, and know that they need someone else’s skills to help them see things clearly and facilitate movement toward their goals and overcome their obstacles. My Client's Needs I look at each person through the lens of where their major stressors lie. This tells me where they’re experiencing the biggest challenges in their life. Sometimes, it’s not what they think. Often, my clients really impress me. They’re wonderful people with big hearts and sometimes incredibly intelligent. And even with those fantastic traits, they still have unique and common challenges: • They’re overloaded at work and have no home life • Their primary relationship has degraded to arguing or ignoring each other • They feel anxiety about advancing in their career • Improper diet is fueling their low energy and they can’t find a way to fix it • Life has lost its shimmer and just seems draining • There seems to be less and less time for just living • A close friend or family member is seriously ill • Work just seems more and more competitive • There are so many things going on, it’s hard to juggle it all • Their performance has started taking a hit Sometimes however, clients can be very specific about improving a particular area of their lives like: • Personal health and weight control • Finding themselves again after years of corporate work and family life • Finding a different career for more freedom to step off the hamster wheel • Starting the business they’ve always wanted to pursue • Repairing or improving their personal relationships • Finding spiritual direction and deeper meaning in life • Discovering their life's purpose • Dealing with a challenging health issue THE ADVANTAGE OF HAVING A COACH There can be a huge advantage to have a coach to ask the right questions to illuminate the blind spots in your life. Many people go through their life with very old coping mechanisms that don’t serve their current needs. Think about it… If you established your subconscious coping mechanisms for life’s challenges when you were a kid or teenager, and now you’re a 40 or 50 something adult, there’s a big chance that you’re seeing your life through these coping filters that are skewing your perception of the world. Many people think that they’re doing just fine, when in reality, they’re on two or more medications for heart problems, something for depression, they’re not giving enough attention to their diet, and live fairly routine lives with no personal fulfillment or meaning. This leads to high stress and minor to major health challenges such is chronic pain, digestive disorders, immune challenges, extremely low energy, and environmental sensitivities. But this can change. You can have a rich, fulfilling life and get beyond coping, to actually thriving! The interesting thing about stress is that it has the capacity to shut us down both immunologically and emotionally. Identifying your key stressors is like finding a map into your unconscious world. When we uncover your challenge points, I have the tools to help you: • Create greater clarity about yourself • Improve your capacity to handle complex situations • Feel good about yourself and your life • Strengthen your relationships • Build success and achievement for your personal and professional goals • Expand into greater productivity • Cultivate mental, emotional and physical wellness • Learn new ways of remaining calm, focused and centered REMOTE SESSIONS All work, whether is be coaching, hypnotherapy, or healing can be done remotely or at a distance. We can work by phone or Skype. In the case of healing, you don't even have to be in connection with me. Just setting aside time to be receptive is enough. SHAMANISM Although people don't come to Thumbtack looking for a shamanic practitioner, I should mention that much of what I do is connected to Mother Earth. All things have spirit and I am working with those spirits whether they be animal, vegetable, mineral or angelic. It's very much a part of who I am and also teach classes to help other get in deeper relationship with the Earth and her children. There are so many important teachings that have been passed down from indigenous traditions that many supersede more recent understanding of who we are and what we're doing on this planet. I'm also a licensed minister with Universal Church of the Master and conduct marriage and memorial services. I deliver sermons and teach workshops on various topics at local venues.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Results. I enjoy getting results from people because their lives change. Many things can come up in the process of coaching and hypnotherapy. That’s why I’ve studied many different approaches to handling those things that ultimately create happy, healthy people. I want to coach the world. I really believe in the power of coaching and I believe that everyone deserves to have someone help them with their lives on a one-to-one basis. I want the world healed. It's pretty simple.

    I was having stress problems due to work and decided to try meditation to resolve the issue. I found Sean via Thumbtack and found him to be a very calming, supportive and understanding person whom I felt relaxed with immediately. After the first session I began to reduce my stress via short meditations as needed using the 30 minute meditation audio created for me at our first meeting. Further visits were also very calming and re-enforcing, I do not know how to explain it but he provides the same sort of grounded peaceful reality that I had previously received from being near the ocean or in a forest. Now whenever I begin to get off track or overwhelmed I find an available conference room and within 10 minutes I feel relaxed and rejuvenated allowing to move forward with clarity. I typically only need to do this once a day on stressful days and I am sure it would be more beneficial as I begin to practice it more regularly. In my case, this only took me a few visits and Sean did not try to push for more visits etc as is the norm but I do plan to visit him again. He helped me get off the mental treadmill typical of the high stress tech industry and it seems that my whole life has slowed down and become more manageable. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking to regain your proper priorities and peace of mind.

    My experience with Sean was very helpful in my overall quality of mental health. Having Lyme disease with symptoms that are primarily neurological has made my thoughts and decision making very hard to cope with but working with Sean has drastically improved these issues I deal with on a daily basis

    Thank You Sean
    I took my 18 year daughter to Sean because early Dec she started experiencing severe abdominal pain from a UC flare up. She was diagnosed in March 2016 but had never experience this kind of pain. After going to the ER a couple of times and even being admitted into hospital for a weekend the pain continued. As a mother I became desperate to find a way to relieve my daughter from the pain she was suffering. I started researching and came across Sean and Blue Bear Healing. I looked on his website and read his reviews. I didn't have anything to lose and my daughter was open to try anything. I am so glad that I took that step and Sean was available to see my daughter on the same day I called him. My daughter had 3 sessions with Sean and every time she saw him I could see her more relaxed. I do think that Sean's ability to look into her emotions and physical being helped her through the pain that is now almost completely gone. She is still seeing a medical doctor and taking medications but mentally and emotionally Sean has helped my daughter through this tough period in her young life. I also think he has made her see herself in a different way that will help her throughout her life.

    Sean is an intuitive, insightful and compassionate healer. I went to him for help with my career. After a couple sessions it turned out it wasn't my career that was in need attention but other areas of my life. I had some internal mental blocks that we addressed. By doing some deep meditations, he helped me work through them. After each session I felt shifts happening in my life. They were subtle but very impactful. I can honestly say after working with Sean I feel more peaceful and content with where I am in my life. I strongly recommend using his services. It will be time and money well spent.

    I contacted Sean because I had a problem with my energy that was hindering my connection to spirits as well as making energy work more difficult for me. I have always found it difficult to feel energy and I thought it was just that some people find it easier than others and thought nothing more of it. Recently I was made aware of this blocking energy and found Sean via the internet. I had one remote session with Sean via Skype and my problem was resolved. Sean conducted a past life regression and we discovered that a traumatic past life had caused my current energetic condition and Sean enabled me to heal this issue during the session without the need for further remedial work. I am still amazed that this issue was so quickly resolved and Sean's session was my first past life regression therapy. I was extremely pleased with Sean's guidance and results and I have no hesitation in recommending him to others who are considering contacting him for assistance. Neil G, Perth, Western Australia

    Sean is an amazing healer, life coach, therapist, and body talk expert. He was able to bring peace to some old emotional wounds that I hadn’t thought about or even realized were still there. I went to him because I felt “stuck” and was searching for advice on my life purpose. After just two months of sessions, I already felt much healing and therefore more joy than ever in my daily life and am also able to express myself better and see more clearly changes to make to encourage my happiness and growth so that I may pursue my dreams being more in the flow and in the spirit of love.

    Originally, I went to see Sean for a constant migraine. Along the way, Sean has done so much more! We've addressed family issues, cords, entities, electro-magnetic interference and releasing tension. Sean is a caring person who sincerely wants to get to the root of a problem. Sean has used Body Talk, hypnotism, guided meditations, sound healings, sacred chants and guidance from the spiritual realm. Plus, it is great to have someone to talk with about spiritual subjects!! Sessions with Sean have been an interesting adventure and I feel very fortunate to have met Sean and benefitted from his vast knowledge.

    Sean is awesome. His hypnosis sessions are the best I've ever had. His voice is clear and his tone will guide you as deep as you allow. I am pleased with the program he created just for me.

    Asking to describe my experience with Sean is not an easy task because there is so many great things that I would like to say. I was recommended to Sean by a trusted family member and now I have recommended others. I have experienced positive and real results in my life thanks to Sean. I am a believer in counselors and therapy but the difference I experienced working with Sean is that I am focused on the present and future with healing for the past but in a positive experience. Although I have been working with Sean for over a year now I still don't understand completely how it works so well but it does. The sessions for me have not been in an intense and dramatic way but in a subtle and positive difference that I can look back on. I am glad to have his expertise in my life and would recommend Sean to anyone looking for positive growth in your life.

    There was an immediate sense of comfort and trust with Sean. There have been tangible results happening within me and the external world. I find the cost of sessions a good value for the return in the investment. I have worked with many others before him and trust him more.
  • Lillian R. Jun 20, 2015
    My experience with Sean was very positive. I found him to be knowledgeable and clear in his questions and his summarizations. I was very pleased with his services and would recommend his hypnosis and healing work to others.


What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
For coaching, 3, 6, 9 or 12 months are the ideal durations. Pricing will change depending on the duration, and the longer the duration, the greater the discount when paid for up front. I prefer to work a minimum of 3 sessions when doing hypnotherapy. Depending on the needs of the client, I might discuss doing a greater number of sessions and provide a session discount for doing so.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
If we're going to do coaching together, I sometimes start by doing an astrological reading on their natal chart. This gives me a picture of the person that they may not know about themselves. For people who are interested in career coaching, this can be a big eye opener. At the least, I'll gain insight into the person and have a great springboard for our conversation. After I know a little about the person, the discussing of their goals with coaching is the next step. From there we can discover what obstacles are standing in the way of their ultimate goals. If I'm only doing healing work or hypnotherapy, we would start out talking and getting to know each other. Then we'd discuss the reason for the visit to give me an opportunity on how to proceed with the session. If you haven't done hypnotherapy before, I'll talk about the process and then give you a taste of what it's like and give you a recording to take home to practice.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Bachelor of Arts, Fine Art and Multimedia, UCSC Certified Advanced BodyTalk and PaRama Practitioner (AdvCBP) – International BodyTalk Association Certified Hypnotherapist – Palo Alto School of Hypnotherapy Certified Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapist – Dolores Cannon Certified Sound Healer – Globe Sound and Consciousness Institute Ordained Multi-Faith Reverend and Minister – Universal Church of the Master Shamanic Practitioner and Teacher – Multiple sources Personal Coaching - Multiple sources
How did you get started doing this type of work?
It may soon a bit woo-woo, but... the universe decided for me. I had worked in tech for a really long time and it had some really enjoyable moments, especially redesigning the web site and Yahoo! for Good. But I didn't have a one-to-one impact in people's lives. In fact, I never had the feeling that I was making a positive difference in the world. Then a series of very interesting synchronicities occurred that led me to meet certain people who taught me things that created the light bulb going off in my head. Many classes, workshops and conferences later, here I am.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I worked with a large gamut of people from ages 14 thru 78, male and female, for different reasons. I've worked with substance abuse, anxiety, weight control, and many physical ailments from digestive problems and chronic pain to fatigue and fertility challenges. I also really enjoy working with people for spiritual exploration and development and teach classes in that regard.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I'm working with a lady who was recommended by someone I barely knew who had a feeling that I would be the right person to help her friend with some emotional challenges. I had met this lady before but didn't really know her. After two sessions with her, I received an email from the person who recommended her saying how incredibly pleased both of them were because apparently she's not very trusting of people and she was able to completely open up with me and her healing was tremendous and successful. We worked for two sessions and were able to help her with a very difficult issue in her life. She told me her perspective completely changed toward the challenge she was experiencing. I know that sounds vague, but I have client confidentiality to adhere to.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Go with your gut. You'll know when you're with the right person to help you.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Am I truly ready to make a change in my life? Am I committed to doing the work that's necessary to change? Am I willing to enjoy the process?
