    When I first came to see Michelle, I was six months into a recovery program for codependency and six months out of a two-year relationship with a married man. Every day I was battling mental and emotional demons that were threatening to consume me at any point in time. Emotionally I don’t think I could have handled any more pain, any more tears than I was already living. Mentally, I was tearing myself down every chance I got, beating and hating on myself more than any person deserves. To say I had hit an all-time low would be an understatement. I was at the bottom. Death would have been a welcome relief.
    I learned about Michelle from my sponsor in recovery. I was already seeing small changes in my self-awareness and self-love by working the recovery program, but was still in so much unbearable pain that I jumped at the opportunity to further my healing. Having been to see counselors and therapists since I was in my early teens, I was familiar with how the process worked and even a little skeptical. But the appeal of this kind of recovery was that it would emotionally free me from my past. Making the appointment to see Michelle was the most hope I had felt in years.
    During my first meeting, Michelle asked me some general questions about where my anxiety stemmed from and what my biggest problem areas were, and along with some deeper probing questions that brought my emotions to the surface. We decided focused on my fear of abandonment and need to be “picked” by the people I love the most – from my nuclear family to my romantic relationships. Michelle guided me through my toughest relationships, using her intuition to advance the tapping and healing process, and lower my emotional attachment from a 10 (what felt like was 100) to a 1. I couldn’t believe it! I felt an openness in my heart space I’d never experienced before, a freedom that hadn’t existed. I could breathe. I could feel. I wasn’t scared anymore. It was as if the tares were being sewn back together, one at a time. Granted, I had a lot of them. But that was ok, because now there was a solution, not just a problem anymore.
    I have had the opportunity not only to experience the healing Michelle’s EFT practice provides, but to witness the freedom, strength and hope it brings to some of my most dear loved ones. I am incredibly thankful for her and the rapid healing EFT has brought to my life.

    Michelle was amazing! I have to say I was wondering if this really would work. I have smoked for 38 years, or should I say... I DID smoke for 38 years! I truly can not put into words how much I appreciate her and how she has changed my life!
    Thank you Michelle!!!

    It's really difficult to put into words what Michelle has meant to me and means to me. I have been working with her for about 9 months or so. It is an understatement to say that she has changed my life. When I first went to see Michelle I didn't know what to expect. I am a much, much happier and loving person now and feel that I can deal with whatever comes my way. She is kind, loving, gentle, very perceptive and a straight shooter. She listens very well and does not hesitate to make suggestions as to what to do next. Michelle has been largely responsible for my complete turnaround. She always exceeds expectations and is always generous with her time. If she did her work any better than she does, someone would have to declare her to be a saint.

    Thank you, Martin. It's a pleasure to work with you and see the great strides you have made and continue to make.

    Amazing, I feel so relieved I can live day to day with no problems, things that used to make me sick to my stomach don't anymore

    Working with Michelle has changed my life. I went to her seeking help with my weight. I didn't realize how deep some of my issues were with my mom and after what seems like a lifetime of anger and bitterness I was able to forgive her and completely change our relationship. I would have never believed this could be done if I hadn't experienced it for myself. INCREDIBLE! I took a short break and now I'm ready to go back to finish dealing with my weight

    Michelle L. from Athena Rising Now replied to this review on August 27, 2014:

    Thank you, Sue! As you now know to be lighter in mind is to be lighter in body. Our physical state is a reflection of our emotional state. You are so much fun to work with.

    Michelle Lee is amazing. Her EFT and hypnosis program works like nothing I have ever experienced before. Through her safe and effective method, I was able to “tap" into the places within that held me back from all I desired my life to be. She worked with me for well over a year, compassionately assisting the releasing of emotional blocks that were holding me back.

    I am so glad to be sharing the life changing experience I had while being a part of your class – Weight Loss through Self Love. My original expectation was to just be hypnotized to lose weight but what I actually received were tools to help me live a more joy filled life. Before attending the class I really did not know what it meant to “love myself” and I had been in a serious depression for over a year. Learning and applying EFT was the key to changing my life, I have never felt such freedom. EFT is now a wonderful tool that I have learned to apply to not only weight loss and exercise but to any area of my life. After years of diets that have not worked I can truly say the combination of the EFT and the hypnosis are the keys to losing weight for me. Your hypnosis was so powerful and effective that I can say with confidence that today, I love and accept myself. Thank you for helping me!

    Our thanks to Michelle and EFT.

    Michelle has been working with my wife and I for a little over a year with great success. When my wife, Mary, first visited Michelle, she was using a wheel chair. After one session, she was able to get along without it. In the beginning we did 20-30 minutes of EFT, both in the morning and the evening, to keep her pain free. We now use EFT whenever we have any pain, regardless of the cause, from headaches to stomach problems to foot problems. It is also a great way of reducing stress from the work place.

    We have now moved to the phone sessions and are working on prosperity and our mind set about money. We have not yet achieved what we want, but do see lots of improvement. The phone sessions are a great way of doing the sessions as we can listen to them more than once. It is surprising what you miss the first time and can pick up the second time.

    Our special thanks to Michelle for such a wonderful help with our lives

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. I work with women to eliminate fear of successfully stepping into their power. For instance, women will often sabotage themselves by failing tests (licensing tests i.e. Real Estate, Counseling).

Women tend to experience a lack of self-worth which creates self-sabotage. I help you eliminate the emotions and experiences that lock in a sense of unworthiness within your subconscious mind, freeing you to experience success beyond your wildest dreams.

Many times in order to release unworthiness, I lead women through healing past traumas including sexual abuse. Women tend to carry alot of shame and guilt about past events that will continue to sabotage her success.

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.

A. I recently helped a woman pass her test for a counseling license. She had taken it and failed 11 times. Not only did we have to release her fear of failure that resulted in failing so many times we also had to release her sense unworthiness to hold that license.

I also help women lose weight by discovering why they eat what they eat and why they eat so much. Weight and diet are really just distractions from living up to our full potential. It has less to do with food and more to do with fear.

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. Hypnotherapy is not some woo woo experience where you will give up control. It only works when you really want to experience change. Hypnosis combined with EFT helps to eliminate the fear of change first, then opens the mind to grand transformation. If you can see it you CAN achieve it. I love seeing women step into their power and own their magnificence.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I work intuitively. When I'm working with a client I am "led" to what the underlying cause of the presenting issue is. Then I guide my client to releasing the underlying cause. This creates a much deeper healing than traditional hypnosis. All of my hypnosis sessions are personalized. I never use a script. During our session we talk and I take notes and from those notes and with some inspiration your hypnosis session is created during your experience. I almost feel like I'm channeling. It's very energizing!

I do use a base script for smoking cessation. It's the best one I have found to stop smoking in ONE session, but I also personalize it.
