EXCERPTS FROM RENO GAZETTE JOURNAL ARTICLE
most of her career as an accountant and earning a law degree,
Tonda Adams opted to leave it all behind for something she never
thought she'd do.
She has been on a quest of personal and spiritual growth since she was twenty three years old, and this quest has directed her to a new career as a hypnotherapist.
Tonda applied hypnotherapy to her own life when her second husband died of a sudden heart attack while she was in her second year of law school. Her husband had convinced her to attend law school, so they could practice law together. She finished law school and continued managing the law firm.
She eventually decided to seek out grief counseling with a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and found herself gravitating toward a Certification in Hypnotherapy.
Interestingly enough, it
was a discipline Tonda had been introduced to while studying for a
degree in accounting in the 1980s. In a university class on
business psychology, she learned how salespeople could use Neuro-Linguistic
Programming, a technique used in hypnosis, to put
buyers at ease and create rapport.
When Tonda entered hypnotherapy, she not only overcame her grief, but also healed childhood traumas and gained insight into her early marriage to a man she didn't love. In the end she realized that she wanted to practice hypnotherapy and not law.
She learned that her life experiences were a gift because she could use them to help people help themselves, employing techniques of Carl Jung, Milton Erickson, Bandler and Grinder, and Virginia Satir -- in addition to her own techniques and training, developed through years of experiences.
