About Barbara Jo Hawkins

Barbara Hawkins specializes in the use of NLP techniques for post traumatic stress disorder, phobias, grief resolution, and regression therapy. In 2003 Barbara became a Certified Hypnosis Instructor and has received nothing but praise from those attending her classes.

"After 18 years' experience as a Hypnotist and 20 years as an Instructor in self-hypnosis (The Silva Method) I can truly say that my life has been, and continues to be, tremendously improved and enriched by using the same tools I use with my clients.  It thrills me to share these hypnosis techniques with students who take the Hypnosis Certification Training – the cream of Hypnosis, NLP and Applied Kinesiology presented in a practical format."

One of the perks of taking your Hypnosis Certification Training with Barbara are the before and after class activities which help you get the most out of the training.

In Barbara's hypnosis practice and in the course, she emphasizes “getting to the cause” rather than attempting to change things by just adding new suggestions. (By the way, the course is for lay people and professionals alike.) "Graduates often call or email to tell me about fabulous experiences they've had – personally or with a client – and I ‘walk on air’ for days. And I love the stories I hear from my clients!"

"I use a lot of humor as we go along because that allows students to expand their viewpoint, to see the possibilities. As the class progresses, we support each other as we envision using our hypnosis tools. It’s so cool when students understand their life can be different – their problems and challenges can become opportunities and adventures."

Because Barbara has personal experience as a hypnosis practitioner and an instructor, she can answer a multitude of questions and help people envision specific ways to use the tools – all of which helps them to achieve their desires.

In addition to hypnosis, Barbara teaches The Silva Life System and The Silva Intuition System as well as other workshops such as ‘In Touch With Your Life Plan & Your Future’ and ‘Making the Law of Attraction Work for You’.

Reading and studying extensively in the fields of hypnotherapy and human potential, Barbara continues to add to her repertoire of techniques and approaches so that she may help her clients achieve their stated goals in the most efficacious manner.

Barbara's formal education was at Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri, and at The University of Louisville in Louisville, Kentucky.

In addition to her Hypnosis Certification and Silva Instructor / Coach Certification, Barbara is an ordained Minister; is a certified Reiki Master; is a certified Energy Restoration practitioner; is certified in The ReConnection™ energy healing; and she is certified to do the actual ReConnection™ and she has some training in Comfort Touch. Barbara has done Shamanic Training with Hank Wesselman and has attended 8 programs at The Monroe Institute

Career Goals


Learn to set career goals and achieve them through hypnosis and hypnotherapy. One of the most valuable suggestions which can be implanted through hypnotherapy consists of only eight words: “What your mind can conceive, YOU can achieve!” There is no more important message, for the statement can be applied to any goal, whether it''s a career goal or physical, mental or spiritual goal. The mind is a powerhouse, capable of accomplishments beyond the most vivid imagination. To achieve the potential implied by the above statement, four elements are necessary: Desire The goal must be important. It must be really wanted. A casual expression such as “I’d like to …” is not nearly sufficient. The desire must be deep and permanent. Belief It is vital to believe that the goal is achievable, however improbably it may seem. Belief, also know as Faith, is a powerful force, capable of performing miracles. This is not necessarily a spiritual requirement. The Faith must be in the Self. Expectation Hope won’t do the job. Thinking that achievement of a goal would be nice is not sufficient. Expectation is required. Success is not a matter of “IF”, it is a matter of “WHEN”! There is no room for doubt. Demand Finally, it is essential that the goal-seeker demand of himself/herself the attitudes and actions necessary to full achievement. As the old saying goes, “There ain’t no free lunch!” Given the above elements, the fact remains: “What your mind can conceive, you can achieve.” The mind conceives through visualization, which comes easier for some people than others. Yet it can be learned and acquired – hypnotherapy can help in this – and the benefits last a lifetime. But it is essential to learn how to set and achieve goals. Implanting the procedures and techniques through hypnosis is very helpful.
