Look into my Training
Being in private practice for over 30 years I've had the opportunity to meet amazing people people who had great potential. I met Jake while I was a consultant for Harley Davidson Motor Company in Milwaukee Wisconsin. I was charged with helping some dealers do team building and help with exercises to strengthen their ability to get along better, communicate and create more commerce. In this Venture I met Jake and he was a young man working in the motorcycle industry and was an extremely talented technician one of the best I've ever found since I was a motorcycle rider myself.
During that time Jake, took an extraordinary interest in the work that I was doing with the dealerships he also took the exercises on and became an exceptional employee for this company. After I had left working with Harley Davidson several years had passed and I had lost contact with Jake other than the casual meeting once in awhile. One day he finally contacted me and wanted to do some personal work with me. During this time it was obvious he still had great interest in what I did, and how all of this stuff worked. He was extremely interested in the hypnotherapy process and Neuro-Linguistic Programming, (NLP), what he had observed me using to help people become better people.
Jake had a natural propensity to understand hypnosis and be able to enter a trance very easily himself which allowed the work that I did with him to accelerate and he grew as fast as anyone I have ever experienced. Jake had a natural understanding of the concepts principles and practices of these highly technical processes. Jake eventually was interested in taking one of my Neuro Linguistic Programming classes. He wanted to learn as much as he could however he was still a motorcycle mechanic and just wanted to see what this stuff was all about, idle curiosity I guess you would call it.
As he entered my NLP classes he became confident very quickly in the processes and working with other students and actually creating change in these students. Just being new to this and him still an amateur, just learning these skills, I was amazed at how quickly he learned these skills, as fast as anyone I've ever taught or deserved anyone else teaching. As the years went on Jake continue to come to these classes even when he had already learned and was certified in the skills. He eventually became an assistant instructor and then a primary instructor for my classes and to this day Jake has a keen understanding of NLP and hypnotherapy processes and has become very effective in helping others achieve the results they want to get.
My education own lineage started when I overcame a tremendous infliction in my own behaviour by being one of the last people who ever worked with Milton Erickson. Eventually I also learned my NLP skills from Richard Bandler and several of his frontline teachers that developed NLP back in the early days, modeling the language patterns of Erickson who was an amazing healer.
I very rarely endorse anyone's work because you just never can guarantee how consistent they will be, however in this case I strongly recommend Jake Ralston is an amazing practitioner of the skills of Neueo Linguistic Programming and Hypnotherapy, having trained him myself and him carrying through the long lineage of experiences that I had with Erickson and Bandler. I find Jake as well prepared to carry this work forward and helping hundreds or even thousands of other people become better people and overcome many of the frailties that they have, building upon their virtues and their resources, becoming stronger more confident and happier.
I have worked with Jake regularly over the last few years. Using hypnosis, he has helped me resolve emotional issues, transform limiting beliefs and fears, improve my performance at work, and heal quickly from physical injury. I love working with Jake for many reasons. To begin with, he is friendly, approachable, and empathetic, so I always feel safe discussing things with Jake without feeling judged. I have also achieved results well beyond my expectations in working with Jake, so he is clearly a highly skilled expert as well. His voice is very soothing, which helps me relax and go into a deep state of inner calm, where I can find my own unconscious resources and move forward in the way that is best for me.
Since I started working with Jake, I have seen results and improvement in several areas of my life, both personal and professional. I am now more confident in myself, since hypnotherapy is a process of tapping into my own perspective to find better strategies and solutions. I have become more productive, both at work and at home, and have accomplished several goals that eluded me for years, because I finally found the reasons to stop procrastinating and get on with them.
If you've ever considered using hypnotherapy, pick up the phone and call Jake right now. You'll be so glad you did, and I'm sure you'll love seeing how easy it is to change things for the better for yourself.
I was referred to Jake by my massage therapist, Stan Barrett, because he felt that Jake could help with my fear of descents during cycling. My fear of descents has made cycling an unpleasant chore that I have to suffer through during training or when I race triathlons. I would get so caught up with my fear that I would freeze up during descents and would hate the cycling leg of triathlon races. My fear affected my sports performance. I was not improving because my fear limited me during training and racing. I knew I needed help addressing this fear.
After my first session with Jake, I noticed that cycling was enjoyable again. My feelings when I cycled were similar to when I first picked up cycling. I was care free and happy on my bicycle. When I descended from hills or mountains, my body didn’t freeze up and my thoughts didn’t get flooded with past memories of cycling crashes. My mind was present and aware; cautious but not fearful. When I raced IM 70.3 Santa Rosa in 2017, the bike course started with a 4 mile descent. During the bike leg of the race, I was present, aware and cautious and not fearful. I did very well and clocked in 3 hours flat for the 56 mile distance, a personal record!
I am extremely satisfied with the results from my hypnotherapy sessions with Jake. I appreciate that he took the time to understand the negative associations I had of cycling that needed to be rewired into positive associations of cycling. He listened to my fears and helped me find enjoyment with cycling again. Thank you, Jake!
