Client’s Success Stories or Testimonials
"A neurologist had recommended that I either take life-long medication or try hypnotherapy as a possible cure to solve a sleep disorder (Sleepwalking) that I've always had. After just two relaxing hypnotherapy sessions, I no longer sleepwalk. From sleepwalking every night to sound, restful sleep, I consider that a big improvement in my life!
“Hypnosis greatly exceeded my expectations, it was immediately effective. From the moment I entered the office I felt safe and welcome. Johanna was understanding and kind, I felt as though there was nothing I couldn’t say. Hypnosis confronted a host of difficulties from health and wellness, to nightmares and social phobias in just five sessions. Hypnosis was the perfect all in one treatment with lasting results. Since then I have had tons of energy and a will to create opportunities of a lifetime. I recommend this to anyone experiencing difficulties with emotions, discipline, social phobia or dissatisfaction with life.”
”I cannot even believe how my relationship to food has changed since taking the Love Your Body workshop” I simply ask my body what I would like to eat and it answers me. The craving, over-eating, feeling guilty cycle has finally ended. My body and I are friends for the first time in a long time. I am so much more relaxed around food.
I decided to make changes to get fit and healthy through hypnotherapy. I chose this method because I was tired of my mind sabotaging my weight loss. The continual comments whirling in my head that; “I will never do it, I am to fat, this is too hard, this or that is ugly,” was controlling my happiness and it needed to stop. I had seen a photo of myself from 9 years ago and I looked great. What struck me though was I didn’t think that then. 9 years ago every time I looked in the mirror I would still repeat those same abusive comments. I realized that I needed to change this pattern. I decided to explore hypnotherapy with a course called, “Love Your Body.” We worked on changing my thought patterns on how I felt about myself on the subconscious level. The subconscious mind influences everything in your life from motivation, confidence, focus, ideas and beliefs. The changes I have made through this program are that I am starting to love who I am by training my mind to say positive things to myself and in return I am choosing to make healthier choices for my body and mind; eat well, pilates, yoga and running. I was never a runner! Since March I have lost close to 20lbs but it is not about the weight. Sure it counts but it is a reflection of how I am changing my mind to love myself.
“I would recommend Johanna and hypnosis to anyone. Beautiful experience and I can’t wait till my next session I began to work through old thoughts, visualized new images, and felt inspired afterwards. This is going to make a world of difference for me during my pregnancy and my labour! I know it!”
“I went into my first session not knowing what to expect, but finished my last session with the peace and resolve that I had been searching for. From the very beginning, Johanna took the time to listen to my story, my concerns, and my goals. Each session was designed around what I was looking to accomplish, and I left feeling its positive effects for several days afterwards. I am now able to appreciate the positive side of my fertility journey, and look towards the future with confidence and hope. This is something I never thought I would be able to say, but Johanna has made it possible. Thank you"
“I had always been curious about hypnotherapy, but had never tried it before. I was slightly apprehensive about it, but was extremely curious. Truth be told, I was truly amazed at the calming effect that just one session could have. Prior to the session, all of the reservations & misconceptions that I had about hypnosis were addressed by Johanna, & because of this, I felt much more comfortable with what was going to happen. Amazingly, Johanna actually spoke to my subconscious, and in doing so, managed to help me prioritize my thoughts. I can see the value of hypnosis in any situation where someone would want to make lasting & important changes in their life. Johanna has a unique ability to put your mind at ease and to make time disappear. She has such a relaxed disposition, that just being around her makes me more comfortable & calm than usual.”
