Amy Budden is the founder of Connect The Mind and a certified hypnotherapist and meditation teacher. By incorporating binaural beats and sound frequency, Amy guides her clients into a naturally induced state of self-optimization by which they can use the full power of their minds to enhance creativity, release fear and tap into their greatest potential. Amy empowers her clients to connect with and access their own ultimate state of flow. Her unique process combines technology & neuro-science along with music, sound and light frequencies to facilitate deep relaxation. Amy works with people in all stages of life, from those looking to get past limiting beliefs and thrive personally and professionally to those who are challenged by illness and stress.
Amy studied at the MAPS program at UCLA. She is trained extensively in NLP and hypnotherapy for anxiety, ADHD, Biofeedback, EFT, Therapeutic Imagery for Chronic Ailments, Imagery for Creativity, Life Passages, Pain Management, Insomnia, Stress and Anxiety and Weight Loss. Amy also works with Moms-to-be and has co-created meditations and hypnosis to facilitate a joyful birth experience, in partnership with Lori Bregman.
Prior to founding Connect The Mind, Amy worked as a Hollywood film editor and found her way into meditating as a way to recharge when a personal "life quake" hit in the form of a health issue. Since then she has committed to meditating daily for the last 15 years. Her practice expanded into hypnotherapy, biofeedback and NLP when a close family member became ill. By incorporating hypnotherapeutic tools and sound frequencies to create a relaxed state of focused concentration, Amy was able to help her loved one train her own brain to heal her body, now thriving she continues to inspire Amy’s practice.
Amy works closely with clients 1:1, holds public meditation classes at Unplug Meditation and provides guided meditations in a corporate environment and personalized recorded meditations for small groups. Connect the Mind is located in Pacific Palisades, California.
