In this episode of the Vedge Your Best podcast, I talk to Melissa Tiers, vegetarian and founder of the Center for Integrative Hypnosis in New York City. Melissa is a certified hypnosis instructor specializing in medical hypnotherapy, EFT, and neuro-linguistic programming. She uses an integrative approach to help people make changes on both conscious and subconscious levels.
During our discussion, we talk about:
- the power of hypnosis and conditioning in influencing people’s dietary choices and behaviors
- the cognitive dissonance experienced by people who consider themselves animal lovers yet consume meat
- the importance of gentle persuasion and education in encouraging people to adopt plant-based diets, rather than shaming or blaming them for their choices
Melissa also shares her journey towards vegetarianism, which began in childhood when she became aware of the reality of meat consumption. Despite not being fully vegan, she advocates for plant-based diets for their health benefits and the positive impact on the environment.
Melissa also shares details about her upcoming coaching course with Simone Soul, which focuses on coaching the unconscious mind. The course aims to equip participants with skills to facilitate change in themselves and others.
Overall, the episode provides insights into the psychological aspects of dietary choices, the benefits of plant-based diets, and strategies for encouraging change in a compassionate and understanding manner.
