A bit about Dr. Payton and her Mind Over Matter Training
Dr. Payton - an experiencer of a childhood household with alcohol, drug, mental and physical abuse, and parents divorcing at an early age - learned to read situations quickly enough to manifest positive outcomes over the long-term. Her personal empirical data (or life experiences) resulted in a fascination with how people’s minds worked and her eclectic (mainstream, metaphysical and holistic) studies then evolved over the past 25+ years around understanding core needs and the habits adopted to satisfy those needs.
"We co-explore inspiration points of why we move in particular directions, co-facilitate reframing ideas connected to emotional duress (moving toward "zero" impact), co-discover memories of success to replace or collapse unproductive patterns, and interrupt anchored patterns connected to fears, phobias and pain to create calm," Dr. Payton explains.
Dr. Payton's specialties -- practicing in the Asheville, North Carolina area -- are Hypnosis (Doctor of Clinical Hypnosis and Ph.D. with concentration in Hypnosis with nearly 500 hours of hypnosis / hypnotherapy and related training), Self-Hypnosis, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming); Acupressure Hypnosis, Past Life Regression, Biblioprocessing (oral storysharing, writing and reading for well being). Dr. Payton also pulls from her Graduate studies work in English, Undergraduate degree in Communication Arts, experiences writing seven books, and assesses personalities using Astrology, Numerology, and Birth Order to more quickly tap into individual needs. All her professional training plays a part in her work to co-facilitate finding individual voice.
Remember that whatever tools you use on your path you are the key to your well being.

Client testimonials about Michelle Payton
"I knew at once that Michelle was the perfect person for this because she has the right energy and trust I need in a hypnotherapist to open my subconscious to. Indeed she did not disappoint me. She was very skilled in providing the right guidance and help at the right time. Potentially damaging traumatic events in the past were transmuted and released, and negative experiences were turned into positive understanding. The session was powerful and insightful, but very pleasant and enjoyable at the same time, and I would not mind having another one to explore a bit deeper. Undoubtedly Michelle has many talents. While I cannot personally vouch for all of them, I can say that she has the professional, dedicated, and caring attitude that will make her excel in any fields. As a therapist/healer, I know a good therapist/healer when I see one."

No more fear of heights... This client called Dr. Payton and said, "I'm going zip lining this week, but I'm terrified of heights. I'm tired of looking like a @$#%y." Dr. Payton shared, " I worked with him for under one hour then had him climb a four-story wall (seen in this pic) and mentored him from below (after we worked together on visualization/release). He is reaching for the horn at the fourth story of this wall."
He contacted Dr. Payton afterwards (via email) and said, "Navitat (zip-lining over a 200 foot gorge area at 40 miles per hour) was a blast without fear, thank you so much."
- Asheville, NC Client
"Michelle was so attuned to what I was needing and was so 'right on' with the modalities she initiated with me! She introduced me to a couple of new spiritual and emotionally centering practices that I was unaware of and can now practice on my own.
I highly recommend Michelle to anyone interested in a compassionate, diversified, joyful healing session! She's the best, and I'll be back for more!"
"It was the best thing I could have done for myself. My session with Michelle put me in control of my life."
- Columbus, OH Client
"There are times now when it is like my subconscious will see your face talking to it and telling it to let go of the hurt and not take it back and that I can really be free of all my past stuff once and for all. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!"
- Indianapolis, IN Client
"Michelle is perceptive and kind. She helped me get clear on some issues I want to address and taught me simple techniques to interrupt unproductive thought patterns and calm myself so I can choose how I want to be."
- Gene Smith, Life & Wellness Coach, Asheville, NC
"I have never written a book - until now! I am writing a spiritual fiction and have been stuck - not with the concept but the 'writing of content,' writing tense, which person, punctuation, etc. I know this now - after my training with you (Michelle). You have freed me to continue with this new process - by dictating and then transposing. WOW!!!"
- Dan, Asheville, NC (writing workshop attendee)
"I used the H'oponopono when I wake in the middle of the night, and can't get back to sleep....
And it worked!
Magical for me in my last Trimester with 2 little ones ...thanks!
Wonderful class, thank you for sharing your time and wisdom, I will continue to apply what I learned."
- Rachel Fielding, Asheville, NC
