In this interview with Social Impact Heroes, Todd Goodwin discusses key areas that need reform to heal the broken mental health system. He emphasizes five main points for improvement:

  1. Root Cause Treatment: Todd criticizes the current mental health system’s focus on symptom management rather than addressing root causes. He advocates for a paradigm shift that targets the underlying issues, such as habitual thinking and nutrition, to prevent and effectively treat mental health conditions.
  2. Subconscious Mind Work: He highlights the inefficacy of conventional talk therapy, suggesting that mental health professionals should learn and incorporate techniques like hypnosis and NLP to work directly with the subconscious mind. This approach can lead to faster and more lasting results.
  3. Eliminating Stigma: Todd addresses the stigma associated with mental health issues, which prevents many individuals from seeking help. He points out that societal attitudes towards vulnerability, especially among men, need to change for more people to seek support without shame.
  4. Health Insurance Reform: He criticizes the economic incentives of the current healthcare system that favor inefficient and expensive treatments. He calls for a restructuring of health insurance policies to support more effective and holistic treatments.
  5. Personal Responsibility and Education: Todd advocates for a shift in mindset where individuals take responsibility for their mental health. He stresses the importance of educating people about the impact of their thoughts and behaviors on their well-being and empowering them to make positive changes.

Overall, Todd envisions a more holistic and preventative approach to mental health, which he believes will lead to better outcomes and lower costs in the long run​. Click here to read the full interview.

In this interview with Authority Magazine, Gina Goodwin shares her journey and insights on improving wellness. Initially working in hospitality, Gina found her purpose misaligned, especially after observing guests’ escapism and experiencing her mother’s painful and losing battle with cancer. Her quest for non-invasive healing led her to hypnotherapy, which profoundly helped her overcome her grief. Inspired by her own transformation, she pursued a career as a hypnotist, eventually earning multiple certifications and joining Goodwin Hypnosis.

Gina recounts a pivotal client story of a woman sex trafficked by her mother, illustrating the profound impact of addressing core issues like trauma and low self-worth. She also shares a lesson learned early in her career about recognizing clients with victim mentalities, which hinder progress.

Gina emphasizes the global impact of her work, focusing on resolving emotional trauma to improve overall wellbeing. She recommends five lifestyle tweaks that will help in this process:

  1. Recognize that what you resent in others is often what you dislike in yourself.
  2. Avoid language that relies on the word “not”, as it misdirects the subconscious.
  3. Separate behaviors from identity, as defining yourself by your problems makes them harder to solve.
  4. Understand the subconscious positive intentions behind your undesirable behaviors.
  5. Balance your perceptions about whatever you’re judging to level out your emotions.

Finally, Gina advocates for increased awareness of the subconscious mind’s role in emotional and behavioral issues, aiming to save people time and frustration in their healing journeys. She concludes by highlighting the importance of mental health and directing readers to the Goodwin Hypnosis website and YouTube channel for further resources. Click here to read the full interview.

In this interview with Authority Magazine, Todd Goodwin explores how to overcome people pleasing behavior by addressing its root causes and employing effective strategies. He defines people pleasing as a behavioral pattern where individuals prioritize others’ needs at their own expense. It often stems from a subconscious need for approval and fear of rejection, rooted in childhood experiences or societal conditioning. Todd recounts his personal journey, sharing how his childhood diagnosis of ADHD and subsequent social humiliation led to his tendency towards people pleasing.

He highlights several challenges associated with people pleasing, such as damaged self-esteem, built-up resentment, and stress. He notes that while people pleasing may seem beneficial in the short term, it often leads to long-term harm, including burnout, mental health issues, and strained relationships.

He offers five strategies and practical steps for breaking free from people pleasing:

  1. Giving yourself time to decide whether to say yes or no.
  2. Identifying how people pleasing behaviors harm you and especially others.
  3. Recognizing the benefits of self-serving behaviors.
  4. Reframing your obligations as choices in disguise.
  5. Using hypnosis and NLP to directly address your subconscious patterns.

Todd emphasizes the importance of self-awareness in overcoming people pleasing and establishing healthier boundaries. He suggests that methods which reprogram the subconscious mind, such as hypnosis and NLP, can be very effective at enabling this transformation. By doing so, people can learn to prioritize their own needs and well-being, ultimately leading to healthier relationships and personal fulfillment​. Click here to read the full interview.

Todd stresses the importance of working with a skilled, flexible, and trustworthy hypnotist who can set proper expectations and tailor treatment to the client. He also notes that inducing a hypnotic state in clients is easy, as people naturally experience hypnosis daily, but its effectiveness in creating personal change varies.
