How Hypnotherapy Opened Doors for Mecca Wagner-Brown to Help Others

Posted by Jade Marvin on 6/20/24 4:00 PM


What was your life like before SWIHA? What led you to SWIHA and to your particular program of study?

I was working a high-level corporate job as a global leader. As my daughter was approaching completing her Bachelor's Degree, I was planning on life after corporate. I have a BS in Psychology and Kinesiology, obtained my yoga teacher certification, and trained in Qigong, I loved helping people, so I decided a hypnotherapy certification would allow me to start a business as an Alternative Therapy Practitioner (as I later also became certified in EFT). I feel the state of society today is in crisis, however, the power of nature and their mind can heal them, and all they need is guidance. I have always been passionate about empowering others, even in my corporate role.

Is there a “defining moment” you’d like to speak about? When did you know that you were on the right path?

When my first few clients started holding themselves differently, taking care of themselves, and speaking more positively, I knew what I was doing with them was helping. As I worked any hour of the day to accommodate clients, I felt fulfilled and energized, not resentful, because I was making a difference in people's lives.

Has your life significantly changed? If so, how?

I have entered my 4th year of running my own business, with 2023 reporting double of what 2022 took in. I am looking forward to continued growth and carrying out my life purpose. I look forward to work instead of dreading it. I now fully identify as a therapist instead of feeling like "I want to be." I am proud of what I do and want to help as many people as possible.

What are you up to now—professionally and personally?

My business, Mindful InnerChange, is growing and my reputation is as well. I am focused on my practice and enjoy using skills on my "secret menu" to assist people as they inquire. I am passionate about living in balance with nature which some people label as Taoist, and I recommend natural remedies, earthing, breathwork, energy healing, and more.

What inspired you to start your own business? What services do you offer? How do you powerfully impact clients? How are the skills you learned at SWIHA supporting your work?

We offer an alternative to traditional talk therapy that includes Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Hypnotherapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and Energy Healing. We view each person as the complex unique individual they are and may complement treatment with other services such as mindfulness, meditation, breath work, and more. You have a unique story in this lifetime and are deserving of a compassionate and effective healing journey. We hold a safe space where there is no judgment for any of your life experiences and work with a variety of challenges.

If you could give advice to future SWIHA students, what would it be?

Marketing and Networking are very important in building a business and it is said it can take up to 5 years to be profitable. I highly recommend you prepare for that by either having savings, a partner to help support, or another job while building your business.

What else—if anything—would you like us to know about you, your work, and/or your personal journey?

I have written 2 books and have had a remarkable healing journey of my own. The two books I have written are “Little Things Lead to Happiness: 90-Day Mindful Journey” and “Leading with Compassion in a Corporate Environment: A Manager in Constant Conflict”.
