About Bela

As a certified life coach, certified clinical hypnotherapist and author, I serve as The Surgery Coach to guide and assist individuals on how best to prepare for surgery, reduce anxiety before surgery, use less pain medication and heal faster. With this mind-body approach, I will guide you to enhance your healing as you prepare for any type of minor or major surgery, medical or dental procedure. 

I also work with individuals who are in a personal or professional transition to create long-term, sustainable changes in their lives. My specialties include stress management, improving confidence and personal and career development.

In addition to coaching, I use hypnosis, NLP, EFT, guided imagery, meditation, breathing techniques and journaling to help clients face whatever challenges they have. I consider it an honor to work with individuals to help them produce long lasting, positive changes, and I am deeply committed to their growth.

For many years, I had a successful career as a public relations professional in my own business, which has given me a wealth of knowledge and deep understanding of challenges in business and the workplace. I’ve also been a mentor and have used my communications skills to be an advocate for positive change through high personal standards and ethics.

I received certifications and intensive hands-on coaching, hypnotherapy and NLP training at the Apositiva Institute in Portland, Ore. I’ve also been trained and certified by psychotherapist and author, Peggy Huddleston, to deliver the Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster™ workshop.
