What people have to say about Connie Jo Holmes with BU2BFULL Hypnosis and Coaching:

True Expert

Connie is a true expert in coaching to reach your full potential! She is professional, knowledgeable, and her warm spirit fills the room. I have had two workshops with her coaching my company team and we have all walked away with "real" tools to use for our life journey. She is amazing!

Carrie R


Connie has a way about her, that everyone can relate to her and what she's teaching. Her desire to pursue this dream of hers is very evident in the workshop. I wish I knew her many years ago. I'd be a much smarter and happier person. But, it's never too late!

Arnetta M


I appreciate Connie's personalized approach to coaching and the variety of skills and techniques that she draws on to help her clients achieve their goals. My sessions were tailor-made for the real time goals and challenges that came up during our sessions, and I walked away with tools and a mindset that will last a lifetime.

Connie is just amazing. She really cares about people and has the very best listening skills. When you talk to Connie she gives 100% all the time. I have learned so much and I am thankful that she came into my life when I really needed direction and coaching.

Meg F

SO Worth It!

I absolutely loved Connie's seminar that I attended today. Not only did I walk out of there feeling inspired, but I also walked away with a while new attitude on life! I would give 10 stars if I could! If you're considering doing a retreat, don't hesitate one bit! SO worth it!

Kelsey M

Lasting Effect

Connie was amazing to work with. Her positivity and belief in her work shines through. Each session I had with Connie made me more determined to achieve my goals. She helped me to address my negative view of myself. She used my own experience and words to give me a different perspective on life. If I am feeling down I remember her words and it gets me out of my funk. She introduced me to techniques I'd never heard of before. The sessions I've had with Connie has had a lasting effect. I would highly recommend Connie's services.

Alice D

Incredibly Thorough

I have worked with several coaches over the years, but I never received the results that I received from working with Connie. She is incredibly thorough, detail oriented, and goes above and beyond to help you. She is kind, professional, and listens carefully to learn what results you are wanting to achieve. Loved working with Connie, and I plan on working with her again in the future.

Karen H

Valuable Strategies

I have utilized hypnotherapy in the past and found it to be beneficial. However, completing the coaching session prior to the hypnotherapy proved to be invaluable. Connie was able to help me to better understand my challenges and give me insights that I hadn't had before. This helped to make the hypnotherapy session more personal and pertinent to my goals. She also provided very valuable strategies in addition to the hypnosis to help me achieve my goals. I am very impressed with Connie's methods, insights, and abilities and couldn't be happier with the end results. I highly recommend Connie for whatever life coaching goals you may have. You will be very happy with the results.
