I came to Sara for help overcoming procrastination, as well as for some help with reinforcing healthy habits including eating right and exercising daily. After just about an hour of hypnotherapy, I am more motivated than I have been in quite some time, and I am also making better food choices. In addition, I feel much more excited about getting exercise each day than I’ve felt in quite some time.
Besides addressing my specific problems, Sara did some work on helping me to sleep better. It seemed incredibly intuitive – I was really surprised to have this addressed since I didn’t mention feeling exhausted much of the time. Since my hypnotherapy sessions, I have had no difficulty falling asleep and I am well-rested each morning when I wake up.
Sara recorded my hypnotherapy sessions for me so that I can revisit them and continue using them to further strengthen my new habits. I am extremely happy with the results achieved so far and I know I can depend on Sara to help me with any issues that might pop up in the future. Her reassuring personality and professionalism are truly appreciated. Thank you, Sara!
STUDY SKILLS LvdL
Half way through his first semester of seventh grade, I became aware that my youngest son’s grades were a disaster. He had started the school year out well enough, but then elected to ignore all of his assignments. His teachers were very concerned about the situation as was I. He is a bright kid and more than capable of the work presented to him. His grades were on a roller coaster ride; “A’s” when he did the work, “F’s” when he didn’t. It was clear we needed immediate intervention. I contacted Sara and scheduled sessions with her.
Sara encouraged me to stay for the session so I would have a full understanding of her work. After observing her care, concern and professionalism, both my son and I were at ease and I was completely confident in her skills. And the results? Virtually immediate. My son was able to salvage his grades from “seventh-grade slump” and has maintained “A’s” and “B’s” ever since. We are deeply grateful to Sara for getting him back on the right track.
Let me tell you how Sara helped me. I was a first-time horse owner and had never been around horses before I got Toby and Oliver. Oliver is a wild Mustang who was brought to me when he was only eight weeks old. When I came to her office, Sara used hypnosis to relax me as we worked on breathing techniques. She also taught me to use grounding and visualization to improve my riding skills. What I learned from Sara gave me the strength and confidence that I needed to work with—and eventually ride—my young horse.
Here I am the first time I ever sat on my two-year-old colt. With her as my hypnotherapist, you can see how relaxed Oliver and I are! The following year, she helped me quit smoking. I’m proud to say I’m now a permanent non-smoker! If you think Sara could help you or someone you know, please let them know that she can help them achieve their goals through hypnotherapy, just as she did for me.
I began hypnotherapy with Sara following a scary incident involving my extraordinarily calm and trustworthy horse. We were out for a trail ride when he spied an overturned trash can lurking in the bushes. He spun and ran, something my horse had never done. It sounds innocuous, but it frightened me so badly that I began having post traumatic flashbacks and eventually gave up riding on the trail. I was perfectly comfortable in my neighborhood, but couldn't force myself back across the field where the "incident" occurred.
Desperate for help, I thought that hypnosis might help. I did some research and when I saw that Sara's particular area of expertise related to equestrian related fears, I was hopeful she could help me.
My therapy sessions with Sara were incredibly helpful. I found that I could talk about and think about the incident without giving way to panic. I am back on the trail, learning to be more than a passenger on my horse. I doubt that I could have taken that step without Sara's help.
As an added bonus, I found that the deep breathing relaxation techniques she taught me actually lowered my blood pressure. I discovered this quite by accident, when I went to my doctor for a check up and learned that my blood pressure was well below what it usually was on past visits.
I have ridden a few times since we had our last appointment. Everything is going much better. I have been listening to the tape and doing the tapping. I rode a horse I had never ridden and I was not nervous and I have been lunging horses by myself and I have not been afraid. My confidence level has grown. Thank you for all your help.
