Joann Dunsing Hypnosis: Helping Clients ‘Break Through Their Limiting Beliefs’
The Milford-based hypnosis center offers help for those looking to reduce anxiety, stop smoking, lose weight, as well as a host of other issues.
Joann Dunsing shares with Patch readers a bit about her Milford hypnosis center.
How did you come up with the name?
It’s my name!
Why choose that location? Why start a business in Milford?
The location was is on and off I-95. The owner, Ray Bastarache, keeps the building beautiful in every way; from the entrance to the elevator to the waiting room in my office suite to my private office space. Milford is a nice shoreline town with nice shoreline people.
Briefly, what business are you in?
As a Hypnotist I help people to break through their limiting beliefs to have the quality of life they desire. It may be Smoking Cessation, Weight Loss, Stop Anxiety, the list is endless.
What’s the most difficult moment or challenge you’ve faced as a business owner?
Having to wear all the hats is challenging. I love being with my clients. That is what I do best!, but I have to do the marketing, etc. and it is so frustrating at times.
Were there any challenges that made you second guess your decision to be an entrepreneur?
December 15th I was working through the fact that a person I had hired to work for me had massively messed up an email blast. A person who considers me to be her competition received one of the emails, copied it and sent it out. Really?! True story. At that moment I thought to myself, do I really want to do this? Oh yeah, I really want to help people breakthrough their limiting beliefs and my “competition” will just have to deal with me.
What’s been your favorite moment or proudest achievement since opening?
There have been so many. My clients get control over their demons; they stop their crazy emotional eating, they stop nail biting, they stop smoking, they stop stressing. If I had to pick one it would be a 50 year old man who came to me as a birthday present to himself to stop smoking for his 50th. He had been smoking for over 30 years and it’s as if he never smoked in his entire life after seeing me for one session.
What’s the most innovative idea your employees or customers have had that you put into practice?
You got me on this one. I don’t have an answer. I just try to keep it real.
How do you deal with difficult customers?
I love the difficult ones because they need the break through the most. I stay focused on what they are saying. I repeat it back to them and we end up laughing and crying sometimes as they realize the lies they have been believing. We open the door to the self imprisonment and set them FREE!!! I love my work!!!
How does your business give back or get involved in the community?
I am a member of the Milford Chamber of Commerce. I give business to the local business owners and support them in any way I can. I also give gift certificates for three complimentary sessions ($375 value) when the opportunity presents itself; The Boys and Girls Village and other locals have benefited from this.
