“I first met Laura Palmer of Bridgenosis after she delivered a fantastic key note presentation during the SPI Board Meeting in Boston. Her approach to accelerating an organization’s ability to create peak performance by tapping the creative mind is unique and powerful. My company was doing well, but tension and stress were holding us back.
I first engaged her to work with my senior leadership team and me. The results were instantaneous. I hired her again to work with the senior leadership of one of my divisions, and everyone made significant shifts. Tension lifted, and our teams are more focused and communicating more effectively. Some of the younger leaders really stepped up to the plate after working Laura…

“After suffering a stroke last year, I experienced difficulty sleeping, walking, and dealing with the stresses of life due to the discomfort and my stroke’s residual effects.
After just one session at Bridgenosis, I learned skills and techniques to help me cope with my emotional and physical issues. Pain lifted and I slept for a full night for the first time in at least a year. It’s been 6 weeks now, and I am sleeping through the night, I feel better, and my attitude has improved. Everyone has noticed!
I then began working with Bridgenosis on some of the issues that may have caused stressors that led to my stroke.” To read more, click for his Updated Guest Blog Post, Stroke and Turn.

“Laura is one of the greatest additions to my life, my mental energy, focus, and subconscious development. She is a great healer of my life and business through working with the subconscious. Laura is Yoda teaching me was of the Jedi. I highly recommend her to my fellow mindful leaders and professionals, especially CEOs and entrepreneurs.”
—Jonathon Perrelli, Life Fuels CEO and Co-Founder; Creator, Producer, Executive Producer Startupland; Managing Director and Founder at Fortify Ventures, Washington, D.C.
“Laura was recommended to me initially for help with an ongoing nervous system issue by a colleague who had successfully worked with her. More than a half dozen specialists told me there was nothing they could do to help. The results were instantaneous and sustained. I was amazed at how I felt after one session and how I continued to feel after doing some of the techniques she taught me. Since then, I have engaged Laura throughout my organization. She has helped me solve some major internal conflicts between employees and created a more positive work environment.
Additionally, one-on-one sessions with members of my senior team and employees have made us all more productive!”
—CEO, Major Trade Association, Washington, D.C.
“I wanted to give you an update on the work you did with me a few months ago. I think your hypnosis has helped a great deal. On the 19th I underwent a colonoscopy and endoscopy and the doctor was very pleased with the results. In fact, she said the colon looks as if almost nothing had been wrong. You may remember that I would wake up having perspired greatly each night. Now I hardly have any fever at night and the infection that was causing the problem seems to have been put well into remission. Thank you again for your work with me.”
—CEO and Entrepreneur, Washington, D.C. Metro Area (from the Foundational Mindshift Session)
“Before working with Laura, I struggled with anxiety and a need to please everyone I met. Saying “no” and enforcing boundaries were a problem for me. I didn’t sleep well, chewed my fingernails, and generally spent all of my time in a highly anxious, nervous state. I struggled at work with never feeling like my work was good enough (even when it was perfect) and a constant need to do everything over the top. I placed unreachable expectations upon my employees, holding them to the same exaggerated standard I held myself to.
Working with Laura was especially helpful because I realized that my anxiety and excessive need to please everyone stemmed from issues in my childhood. Traditional therapy with a counselor helped me source out where my issues stemmed from and helped me identify areas where those issues were affecting my life. But while therapy helped me better understand my issues and where they came from, it did little to help me move past them or change how I think about myself. My subconscious continued to nag at me.
After one session with Laura and using Bridgenosis, I find that I am suddenly free from gripping anxiety. And it literally happened overnight. I am sleeping well, no longer chewing my fingernails (a 20-year habit that I stopped overnight), and am feeling much calmer. I no longer feel anxious and nervous. It’s hard to explain, but it’s like my brain has just quieted.
I am no longer stressing over every minor detail, turning inconsequential/trivial happenings into major decisions. I am not fighting my desire to process in the middle of the night, worrying about the next day’s events or tasks. I have relaxed at work, and have been able to accept that my (still very exceptional) work is good enough. People in my life have noticed the changes; most notably my husband, kids, and direct employees. This new calm feels amazing. It feels like such a weight has been lifted from me.
I highly recommend you give Bridgenosis a chance to help you or your organization. The concept is different, and I was admittedly skeptical at first. But after meeting Laura, seeing her passion in her work, and hearing the how/why of it, the science of it makes a lot of sense. And it works. Four hours with Laura changed my life. That seems like such a cliche thing to say……but it’s true. I’m so grateful to Laura for helping me find my inner voice and learn to trust it.”
—L.M., Project Manager, Los Angelos, California
“Before working with Laura, worry and stress were frequent companions. Now, I am more relaxed and energetic and able to make faster decisions in a crisis. I am also handling bad situations and critical moments with greater confidence and assertiveness.
I am seeing improved physical health and a more positive state of mind and emotions. My attitude is affecting my staff in a positive way. I’m more relaxed and confident, and my staff is seeing that improvement, and they are more energized and confident in what they are doing as well.
Another result is that we’re seeing better online reviews of our performance.”
—Wellington Watts, President, Alexandria Colonial Tours and Global Symbiotics, LLC, Alexandria, VA
“Before working my session with Laura, I often felt like a fraud at work, believing that if others were to discover how unsure I was in making decisions, I’d be fired. I felt that I had to present a perfect facade and act as though I was well informed on all matters that came before me.
One of the mindshifts we made was that I was able to detach from the importance I placed on what others thought about me.
I am going through an extended crisis at work in which I am required to perform a demanding job, handling some matters with which I have no experience and in which there is little institutional experience.
After working with Laura and using the Bridgenosis tools, I have noticed that I am not paralyzed with fear and panic. Instead I calmly enter each day using the resources available within my company, including asking others to research various issues involved in the new matters. Throughout this period of time (which is still ongoing), I feel a growing sense of confidence and centeredness. I am calm and productive.
I believe that Bridgenosis can help others in gaining clarity and balance in handling work issues. I have experienced only significant benefits.”
“Laura has the unique ability to quickly and accurately identify the real issue(s) behind a problem or challenge. From a business standpoint, time is of the essence when trying to bring resolution to certain situations, but more importantly, thinking strategically and long-term about how people work together is essential for success.
As a senior manager in professional services, Laura’s techniques for working with people and customers gave me the tools I needed to be an effective executive.”
— Anonymous Executive Client, Washington, D.C.
“Recently, my company has experienced challenges as it grows, and I have felt stressed. I reached out to Laura for help refocusing and getting some perspective around all the moving parts. She helped me to understand where the conflicts in my decision-making were rooted and to resolve them. She also helped me achieve a level of clarity and peace that I have NEVER known.
The results were so dramatic and instantaneous that my wife, who was unaware that I had sought this help, within minutes of walking into the house remarked: ‘What happened to you? You seem calm?’ I highly recommend her to any executive or organization.”
— Will Fuentes, CEO and Founder of Lemur, Arlington, VA
“Personal issues in my life were slowing me down and taking valuable time away fro work. Laura was able to help me see and solve issues which interfered with many aspects of my life and business. The same patterns we changed for me personally positively impacted my business mind. So many things are off my plate, and I’m able to focus on moving my company forward.
Laura is amazing, caring, and intuitive. She totally exceeded my expectations. I’m a happier and more productive person since our session. Looking forward to working with her again.”
— A. M. Small Business Owner and CFO, Washington D.C.
“Laura Palmer is a great resource for my executive coaching clients. Some of the executives I work with have long held beliefs or viewpoints that are holding them back. This results in anger, frustration or a resignation that change won’t or can’t happen.
After one or two sessions with Laura my clients can embrace new solutions and move past old ways of thinking. Laura provides the shift for my clients enabling them to receive the maximum benefits from executive coaching. Laura is a valuable tool in my toolbox.”
— Holly Herman, Executive Coach, Achieving Skills, Alexandria, VA
More Workshop Feedback From Attendees:
“Thanks so much. You really nailed it, on all accounts and framed it in a way that I can actually hear it differently. Yesterday was great. I left your workshop with a burst of energy. I’ve been dragging with exhaustion for the past month and it was the first time I could actually get things done without wanting to take a nap first…Thanks for being so tuned in. That was a really great experience.”
“Thank you Laura – yesterday’s workshop was incredible and very life changing for me. I had the best night sleep since April! Wow! Didn’t wake up once. Your approach is very cutting edge.”
Online Mindshifter Feedback:
This program is genius. When I started my consulting company, so much fear and anxiety kicked in that I had never felt before, and it was clearly getting in my way, slowing down my process. This Bridgenosis Online Mindshifter Program helped me to clear my head and trust my gut more. I’ve had so many “a ha” moments and shifted old habits I didn’t even know where interfering with me. My business is moving forward. The best part is that I didn’t have to make time for it. It worked in my sleep.
