My name is Corinne Ropp. I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Coach and Trainer.
Now that we have that out of the way I want to tell you why I became a hypnotherapist and not any other profession.
In the early nineties, I was a young mom of three. My marriage was on the rocks. My father in law whom I adored passed away on my birthday. My mom and dad were seperating. The family business was being taken by my uncle and not in a nice way. Our family home was being foreclosed on. And then my sister in law went missing and my brother became the object of a missing person case. And of course trying to keep a job and money and food on the table.
With all of this going on, trying to stay sane was a huge project. I tried medication only to find I was sleepy all the time. I tried counseling and found that talking about things only made me more righteous about my life being hard. For 2 years I worked hard at getting alcohol to alleviate the pain only to find that only got me in more trouble.
After joining AA and getting sober, I found a psychologist who used hypnotherapy. And it worked. For 6 weeks I went to see him every week at a cost to me of $125.00 per appointment. I listened to the recordings he gave me every day.
It become the thing that saved my life. It allowed me to relax enough to function, to survive. I still had work to do but I could think
I knew that I would study hypnotherapy.
And I did.
In the meantime I enjoyed a career in sales, both hard core vacuum cleaner sales for three years gaining many awards for excellence and recruiting, and then in the floral industry where I took my territory to 6.4 million dollars.
When they closed the floral department I was again on the hunt for some thing to do.
I was again at a crossroads and ended up taking a personal development course which shifted my awareness once again. I ended up working for that company learning a lot about the seminar industry, running programs, selling programs and most importantly another level of relatioship building. I ended this relationship with this company because for the owners it was about money and this was not what I was about so when I realized this, I was gone the next day. that was November 2007 and in January 2008 I was enrolled in the Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist Course.
I started my business from nothing. I still run the same company 12 years later, having helped many people in the process.
I never stop learning. I had the privilege of learning from some of the oldtimers spending hours on the phone talking about different cases. When others were trying to make money, I was learning. And I still do. I just recently spend 5 days with David Snyder, an amazing trainer in San Diego and I am going to Virgnia in June to work with Dr.Richard Nongard and Jason Linett.
In 2014 I earned my black belt in Sun Hang Do, a Korean martial art.
In 2009 I was a best selling author in Overcomers Inc.
Now I am working on my education in Canada, planning to write a book and keep helping people in the process.
Someone said I was passionate about what I do. I am passionate about what I see for other people and what hypnotherapy can do in a short period of time.
