Thank you for your coaching, direction and all the help you gave me at the Expo!!!! I can't thank you enough! It has helped so much get my head in a good place on so many levels! I have not totally quit smoking yet... But I am at the end of this journey! I am taking control and am days away from a total quit and control of this demon! With your words in mind and helping to guide me, I see the end goal and it is now in close reach and YOU have been very instrumental in this journey. Again, thank you!!!
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! AEC
Halfway 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 hypnotherapy sessions with her. Sara encouraged me to stay for the session so I would have a full understanding of her hypnotherapy 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.
I went to Sara to help me with my fear of flying. Sara came to my house and did a few sessions with me. It was successful and I’m able to get on a plane without that dreaded feeling of doom. Every time I am in a plane and there is turbulence, I imagine being in a car going over a speed bump. Thanks for your help ,Sara! It was truly life changing. Sara is a caring professional and committed to helping people overcome their fears. I highly recommend her!
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.
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.
I started getting hypnotherapy with Sara at Calminsense Hypnotherapy® back in April of 2018. It was motivated by my very high stress job and I decided I needed a form of anger management, which is never good to have in the work place or I could possibly lose my job. And I have unfortunately very clear physical tells of when I am upset. My entire face and neck turn blotchy red. I have had to wear my hair long to hide it and that was not enough to conceal. I felt somewhat ashamed and embarrassed at first. I have since learned that more people than I was aware are in some sort of therapy!
I had previously hit very very low point in end of 2015, continuing into 2016 and even going into 2017. The organizational structure at my work changed in 2014. Before that I still had some issues before that but the change in 2014 certainly catapulted my reactions. I spent way more time in HR in 2016 than I ever wanted, hoped for or expected. Previous to that, the time I had spent in HR was dealing with a direct report, not dealing with myself.
I had tried traditional therapies of just talking to a counselor. It was sort of mandated by HR. It was ok. I found a local lady and she was nice and although it was long ago, I still to this day remember one (1) piece of advice she gave me. She said to always remember the Serenity prayer: God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can; And wisdom to know the difference. I posted it at my desk and it helped a little. But it was literally “a piece” and not peace.
In just a short time after starting sessions with Sara, I was already getting comments and nods at work as to the change in my persona/attitude and that I was calmer. There was some relapse/set back for me when in Nov. 2018, they had hired a new manager for our team. He was dismissed short of his two (2) year anniversary in Oct 2020. To quote Forrest Gump, “that’s all I’ve got to say about that”. Ninety percent of the animosity I felt at work was directed towards one (1) group/team of only five (5) individuals. We had been one (1) department before 2014 then we were split up.
The results with the hypnotherapy have been amazing. I feel more clarity and more rested. I have always been confident at work on my technical abilities but now more so as well on interactions. My brain thinks differently when I go to respond. My manager will IM and send me emails complimenting me on how I am dealing with people and situations. As the sessions continued, there seemed to be more spreading of feedback to wider groups of people/departments that I was much more calm during periods of stress. Even my family also noticed the changes, my sister and my mom.
While to some extent, the triggers at work have been mitigated due to various reasons, I have had the occasional here and there incident. But overall, the steady upkeep, minus some Covid time, made it such that I even was promoted this year. I had been held back for some years and it was always the same story “your technical abilities are without question however your soft skills are not where they need to be”.
All and all I would just recommend trying hypnotherapy. I was skeptical at first but I wish everyone out there the success that I have achieved both on a professional level but also personal level with my life at home and my close family. Bit of a by product because it has not been a specific focus but I also feel that my claustrophobia is better due to my sessions.
