Your Certified Hypnotherapist at The Center of Success
After graduating college I was a depressed miserable mess. My self-esteem was in the gutter.
I had no confidence and constantly struggled with overwhelming anxiety and negative thoughts.
Desperate for anything to help me feel better I stumbled on a course to learn to harness the power of the subconscious mind.
During the class, I learned my subconscious mind was the best route to change my thoughts and feelings, so I diligently practiced the new tools to feel better.
The more I practiced, the more I got in control of my thoughts and the better I felt.
With more confidence, in a short time, I became a Merril Lynch stockbroker and passed the grueling Series 7 Exam. During my first year, I presented new investment concepts to eighteen different groups of investors ranging from 10 to over 400 attendees.
After almost 15 years in the financial field, I was ready to leave.
I was determined to follow my passion for helping others and got Certified as a Hypnotherapist in 2001.
My mission is to help every client learn and understand how their own subconscious mind works. This builds the foundation of every thing we do together. Every client gets help with their particular issue. Even more important, each client is empowered with powerful tools and techniques that can easily be used in other areas of their life. -Wendy Merron

FROM A RECENT INTERVIEW on McSweeney’s
What is your occupation? Board Certified Hypnotherapist and Cert. Hypnosis Instructor
What advice would you tell to your younger self or someone half your age? Don’t worry so much.
How would you answer …”This I know for sure”? That my thoughts determine the outcome of my life.
What career advice you wish you had at 25? Choose a career you absolutely love, love, love. The money will follow if you enjoy what you do.
Do you have a personal practice that keeps you in alignment and helps you stay present through everyday life? I stay aware of my thoughts and choose to no longer spend time hanging out with worry and fear. They are not my friends. Instead, I direct my thoughts and focus on the outcome I desire.
What would you advise a younger woman to master that will serve her throughout her life? Find ways to love your inner child and check in with her daily. ALWAYS treat others the way you want to be treated.
Looking back, do you have any regrets you would like to share and what it taught you? I have no regrets because I know I did the best with the tools I had available at the time.
My biggest AHA after turning 50 and why it’s valuable: Life gets a whole lot more enjoyable when you stop judging others and stop judging yourself.
What is your best advice for living a happy life? Find ways to give to others every day. Whether it’s a smile, a kind word, or your time…you will be happier for giving.
My wish for you… is that you learn how to actively direct your thoughts to create the life you desire. It is the secret to a happier life.
