Though Nina Bingham has degrees in psychology, she considers herself a programmer. That's because her hypnotherapy services strive to rewrite codes in the subconscious?specifically, the ones associated with unwanted habits, such as smoking or overeating, and phobias, such as a fear of flying or public speaking.
However, Nina's clients needn't be hypnotized to benefit from her expertise. She also provides life coach services, honing in on specific problems her clients face before developing a plan of action for them. During sessions, Nina identifies each client's aims, analyzes their current situation, gauges the challenges before them, and suggests manageable steps to improve. These consultations can solve personal and professional issues alike.
