Stress Management Specialist
“As a small business owner, I have worked non-stop seven days a week for the past
two years, out of touch with the many roadblocks to my success. This stress management
program taught me how to clear my mind of unwanted, busy, confused, and stressful
thoughts, and find rest and peacefulness each day. I now have a better understanding
of what stress is and how it affects my mind and body, my health, and my professional
Randolph L. Fulton, CEO, Kerrand Corp., American Credit Association
As a Self-Help Columnist
“Dr. Patricia Armour has resurrected the lost art of writing, as a direct path to
the soul. Her rhythmic, but direct writing style naturally leads the reader to explore
the techniques best suited to them. The result is a nexus of synergistic techniques
that helps us approach our hidden feelings from any angle. Although not everyone
can take advantage of Dr. Armour's private therapy sessions, her articles on unlocking
the soul, to helping people unlock their hidden potential, are the next best thing.
In just a few short pages, Dr. Armour outlines self-help strategies that give the
reader powerful, but simple methods for putting their lives into fast forward.
Her style is subtle, yet direct, as its disarming rhythm cuts through the reader’s
doubts and defenses so that the point gets through. Dr. Armour provides a myriad
of techniques that can unlock the secret doors to our subconscious that provide that
direct connection to the soul. Her insights clearly illuminate the reader’s path
— like a laser beam — Dr. Patricia Armour beams her help, advice and wisdom directly
into the heart and soul of the reader.”

“The training was beyond excellent, it was outstanding! The course was well organized,
interactive, relaxing, and fun, with a variety of practical exercises. Manuals added
clarity to the topics and techniques. Patricia Armour was very thorough and comprehensive
in sharing her depth of experience. She offered stress assessments, presented so
many therapeutic techniques, options, and resources.
I enjoyed it enormously.”
Alison Carter, Program Coordinator State of Maryland, Dept. of Mental Hygiene Administration
As a Talk-Radio Guest Expert
"People are constantly in search of new ways to handle old, lingering problems, both
on the home front and at work. During multiple guest appearances on my live radio
talk show — it was obvious from the reaction to our conversations that my listeners
found your subject matter informative and beneficial.
It seems that your knowledge, strategies, and method of treatment is helping many
people. You should be proud of your efforts. I hope you will find time to return
as a guest on my show in the near future.”
Eddie Applefeld, WLG Radio Host
Self-Hypnosis Audio CD’s
“The soft hypnotic cadence of Dr. Patricia Armour’s voice, back-dropped by endlessly
relaxing melody makes The Mind Spa Traveler™ tapes and CD’s probably the best of
its kind. Side 1: Hypnotically eases you away from the day’s reality to sheer bliss,
while her guiding suggestions fill your spirit with confidence and energy. Side 2:
Teaches self-affirmation, and how to guide your own destiny by filling your mind
with positive affirmations through healing relaxation. You can search everywhere,
but you won’t find better self-help hypnosis tapes anywhere!”
Norman H. Posner, President Emeritus, Mid-Atlantic Hypnotist

Mindful Wisdom Spirituality
“There comes a time in everyone’s life when we search for more out of our existence.
All my life I’ve searched for answers through my work, psychology, astrology, religion,
even music to get a feeling of purpose to my life. The sequences of our time here
on earth have always fascinated me -- one’s life’s journey, soul evolvement, and
what it all means. Dr. Patricia Armour was recommended to me by my colleagues...
praising her abilities, credentials, etc. Her patience, intuitive awareness, wisdom,
guidance, and sixth sense goes way beyond any title or degree she has earned. After
searching many avenues for this higher truth, Patricia led me to an awareness level
that truly cleared a path for a better understanding and appreciation of my whole
life, with a renewed vision for my future. I found this to be a spiritual awakening
and profoundly transforming experience.”

N.G.H. NATIONAL GUILD OF HYPNOTISTS
“I personally discovered the amazing power of the subconscious mind in 1982 at a
NLP hypnosis course. I was totally impressed when I saw how easily a hypnotized
person could relax, then change their emotionally reactive mind right before my eyes
to overcome stress, anxiety, fear, phobia, trauma, pain, or habits like smoking,
overeating, procrastination, or improve their memory, focus, self-esteem and confidence
to achieve goals...
much faster than traditional counseling and psychotherapy. At that moment, I knew
I was going to use hypnosis to help people achieve their dreams.
Beyond psychotherapy, I now integrate neuro-linguistic hypnosis as a Master NLP Hypnotherapist,
a Certified Instructor, and a HypnoCoach™”
