If you have ever wanted to quit smoking, become a better public speaker or use subtle methods to convince your mind to do something you could never do before, then hypnotherapy could help.

Rosemary Nevara, will be using a room in the McBride house to offer Winslow residents a chance to enter a whole new internal world.

"With hypnotherapy People are not able to do things against their will or do things they would not already be willing to do normally," Nevara said.

Some people are not suggestible enough to be hypnotized, so Nevara tests all clients before scheduling a session to see if will even be worth it for them to do so.

Mortgage consultation

The process of buying a home or property can be confusing and difficult, and many people shy away from it out of fear. Owning property will benefit a family much more that renting can.

Mortgage Consultant Becky Adair, representing Colonial Home Loans, will be available in the McBride House to discuss this arduous process with potential homebuyers. Mortgage consultation is free.
