A New Dawn Hypnosis Center opened at 910 S. Eighth St., Suite 104, in Fernandina Beach to offer therapy for people who want to stop smoking, control weight, improve memory or have a painless childbirth.

"We are what the programming in our subconscious perceives us to be," said owner Dawn Grant. "If this part of the mind views us as fat, we become fat. If it perceives that we smoke, then we smoke, and so on." Grant said hypnotherapy allows people to reprogram themselves to be whatever they wish to be. Grant, a certified hypnotherapist, also has a background in mental health. Grant has worked in Nassau County as a children's case manager for Sutton Place and as a victims' witness counselor for the State Attorney's Office. She will hold private and group sessions.HOME, BUSINESS EXPO The Amelia Island-Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber of Commerce has scheduled the 2001 Odyssey Expo, a home and business show, for Oct. 20 at the Atlantic Avenue Recreation Center auditorium.
