More than 70 people took a break from the holiday run-around last week and stopped by Montville Executive Suites in Pine Brook to meet a local author.
Kathy Lindert hosted a book signing Dec. 19 for her first two self-help books, 'How to Fix Yourself for Good - Stop Smoking' and 'How to Fix Yourself for Good – Lose the Weight for Women.'
Lindert, a Montville resident, is the President of Advanced Hypnosis Counseling in Caldwell. She is a certified hypnotist as well as an instructor, a blogger and now an author, according to a release. She has served as an Expert Advisor for Morris Essex Health and Life magazine, is a recommended resource for iwantotquitsmoking.com, and is an approved PERKS provider for Blue Cross/Blue Shield of NJ.
“When people succeed in achieving goals using the tools and techniques I have taught them and I see the sheer joy in their eyes, it still amazes me,” said Lindert. “There is nothing like helping people realize thatthey really do have the power to change the way they think or behave easily and effortlessly.”
Lindert has been practicing hypnotism for nearly 10 years and has helped thousands of people with smoking cessation, weight loss, fears, sleep disorders, test anxiety, sports improvement and other issues. She hopes her new 'How to Fix Yourself' series will allow more people to do the same. The books provide self-hypnosis scripts intended to be recorded by the reader, or if (s)he prefers, to correspond with a pre-recorded MP3 available on the company’s website using a special access code available in the book. Each book offers suggestions for learning how to change one’s perceptions about things like cigarettes or food, ways to substitute good behaviors for bad habits, and self-hypnosis techniques for staying focused on one’s goals.
Although Lindert continues to accept clients individually in her practice, she plans to write and publish more books in this series. Her next book, intended to help men lose weight, will be available shortly. The first two books are currently being sold on www.amazon.com or on her website, www.advancedhypno.com.
