Originally, I went to see Sean for a constant migraine. Along the way, Sean has done so much more! We've addressed family issues, cords, entities, electro-magnetic interference and releasing tension. Sean is a caring person who sincerely wants to get to the root of a problem. Sean has used Body Talk, hypnotism, guided meditations, sound healings, sacred chants and guidance from the spiritual realm. Plus, it is great to have someone to talk with about spiritual subjects!! Sessions with Sean have been an interesting adventure and I feel very fortunate to have met Sean and benefitted from his vast knowledge.

My experience with Sean was very positive. I found him to be knowledgeable and clear in his questions and his summarizations. I was very pleased with his services and would recommend his hypnosis and healing work to others.

Sean is awesome. His hypnosis sessions are the best I've ever had. His voice is clear and his tone will guide you as deep as you allow. I am pleased with the program he created just for me.

If you want answers, go see Ewa. I met with this amazing woman not knowing what to expect or how hypnosis could help me. I trusted Ewa right away as she has a very kind and supportive demeanor. After getting settled, she helped me reach a very relaxed state. I was aware of what was going on, although I felt distant and calm. Ewa was able to support me in taking a little journey inside myself where I found crystal clear answers and truth I normally would not be aware of. It really helped me clarify my relationship with my girlfriend and deal with some big life decisions. After our work was done, I left feeling completely refreshed and energetic. I would recommend this woman to anyone who needs healing or is dealing with life changes. She is a great support to get you to the other side! Ryan G.

My experience with Ewa's hypnotherapy was fantastic. She really surprised me with the scope of her sessions - we talked about everything from past lives...to current dilemmas...to yummy herbal teas to drink for clarity. The hypnosis portion was always my favorite part...even though I was merely curious if it would work at first. Honestly, I found it to be the KEY for every session. Combined with the tarot cards she used, I received some Very Clear images to help me on my healing path. I highly recommend!!

As a serial student, I am on a constant quest for self-improvement and life’s truths. This journey began in college with a Psychology degree but after a traumatic divorce I quickly dispelled traditional forms of therapy when I discovered and experience Brief Solution Therapy. I also am a huge fan of Tony Robbins but in my analysis his techniques where remarkably effective on the conscious level. I knew that personal limiting beliefs from my abused childhood residing in my subconscious were preventing me from being my best self. So my journey continued into NLP which in turn led me to Ericksonian hypnosis. All highly valid and powerful forms of therapy yet something was still missing. Enter Randy and Brainspotting. Isn’t life grand!?! “There are no accidents” as it’s only fitting that I write this review on Thumbtack as this is the site that I somehow happened upon that led me to Randy and this strange brief therapy called Brainspotting. Randy immediately responded to my inquiry stating that “Brainspotting goes deeper than hypnosis” so of course I just had to try it. Without spoiling your personal Brainspotting experience in describing the process let me focus on the results: Profound. After just one session I felt an inner calm and peace that I’ve never before experience. Not only was I free of daily struggles but the impact has not been just inner-world but immediately manifested in my outer-world as well. Life has “flowed” effortlessly with tangible new opportunities that have been transformative. Most importantly my newly discovered better self has dramatically and positively affected the lives of my family and the people I love most. What could be more important? Brainspotting has been life-altering for me as I’m certain it will be for you but lastly and most importantly is Randy himself. The love, empathy and compassion I experienced from Randy guiding me through my personal journey of self-discovery as left me in awe of his humanity.

I highly recommend Randy with his effective treatment and his comfortable, welcoming environment. I started seeing Randy at my doctor's recommendation for depression. I had never been to a therapist before and growing up in the conservative midwest where the idea of therapy is for weak and/or crazy people and you're just supposed to "tough up and deal with it", I had no idea what to expect. In just a few sessions, I feel completely and totally like a new person. I've realized that I have been mildly depressed for about 15 years now, and just thought it was "normal" to feel that way. The brainspotting technique Randy uses seems so simple, but has been extremely effective on me. With brainspotting, I focus my eyes on a spot that increases the intensity of the physical discomfort of my negative emotions, and I let out whatever comes out. I'm still floored by the past experiences that I've discovered this way and how they've shaped the way my thought patterns are today. It's a unique feeling of release, and I usually leave sessions with a goofy smile on my face, feeling a little like, "what just happened?" Randy's services have been a life-changer for me, and I can't thank him enough for the vast improvement in my quality of life.

I cannot recommend Randy Weled enthusiastically enough. He is compassionate, witty, and real. Most importantly, he gets results. When I first met with Randy, I was dubious of brainspotting—it sounded vague and new-age-y, the kind of thing I generally dismiss out of hand. Within a few sessions, though, I was a believer. I’ve spent years in therapy, talking over the same issues time and again, and while I came to understand why I was doing and feeling certain things, I was unable to change them. Brainspotting those same issues with Randy, I witnessed positive, measurable changes in a matter of weeks.. Breakthroughs “stuck” with me in a way that I’ve seldom experienced in traditional therapy. It is incredible, and incredibly exciting, to think of the life-long obstacles he’s helped me to overcome. I (and my wife!) hold tremendous gratitude towards Randy. "Miracle worker” might sound like strong words, but I can’t think of a better way to describe him.

I had gone through an ugly, expensive lawsuit to protect a musical copyright that had been infringed upon. Ultimately I had to let the lawsuit go, which impacted me financially, emotionally and creatively. Afterwards, I was shell-shocked and disillusioned which took the joy out of my life specifically in the area of creating music. My spirit was broken and I could not seem to fix it. I had never before experienced hypnosis. I came to it guarded but willing to try. Kaia was compassionate and patient in helping me identify the problems, As I relaxed into a dreamlike state she asked questions about where I was going, what I was feeling, and what I was seeing. Soon I just allowed myself to let go, moving into trust, going with the flow. I soon found myself before a locked portal. Behind were a series of other doors, all encased in Gothic arches with sacred energy, glowing with golden light. But I couldn’t enter because it was locked. It could not be forced open, and though I could see what lay behind it, I could not go around it either. Though this was frustrating, I began to realize that those cherished places were at least still there… I just had to find a key, though that would require work, time or whatever. Post-hypnotherapy, I continue to process. Taking heart, I now find I am achieving what I set out to do in that session: to reclaim those lost, battered parts of me, returning to my musical roots and moving on. My session was a cleansing, enlightening experience. I got tangible results upon which to build. UPDATE: The album in question is now up on Amazon and other sites. I continue selling my album and have just released a new one this year. The hypnotherapy was a significant step towards this outcome.

As a caregiver of long experience, I care for people with dementia and end-of-life issues. I help families understand what the client is going through and what kind of help they need. Suddenly my best friend had a massive stroke affecting both sides of her brain. She was in a coma for 10 days. When she regained consciousness she was sent to rehab and declared to be “failing to progress.” I brought her home and after three months of constant attendance she was stabilizing. I was exhausted physically, mentally and emotionally. I turned to Kaia when I was about to go into a meeting with my friend’s soon-to-be-ex-husband. The relationships were complicated. I had opinions about her needs and my own that I had to communicate. I had been at odds with her husband’s decisions. The meeting called for all my skills as a patient advocate at a time that stretched those skills to their limit. This was a woman I loved. My ability to be professional while my personal heart was involved was greatly challenged. Kaia opened my session with EFT. I was so stressed that I couldn't tap on the points myself so she did it for me. Through this I experienced an opening and "pouring out" of pain and exhaustion. Suddenly calm settled over me. I hurt, was still bone tired but I felt peaceful. During hypnosis, I found that I could contemplate my concerns and feelings with calm neutral energy. The outcome was that I was able to share my truth without my exhausted reactivity getting in the way. Communication flowed and things came out better than I would have thought possible. I strongly credit the EFT and hypnosis for this stellar success. MKW

I came to my first experience of hypnosis from what is perhaps an unusual upbringing. There were layers of complexity, trauma and inner conflict involving my family background, the religious teachings of my father and the direction my life was taking personally and professionally. This was particularly around my authentic sexuality (I identify as a lesbian). I had been contemplating using hypnosis but I had not yet found a situation or a practitioner in which I felt open to trying it. Turning my state of consciousness over to the direction of another was a little scary for me. In my father’s belief system, hypnosis was the tool of the devil! I felt an immediate connection with Kaia and sensed that she would create a safe container whereby I could begin exploring my issues through hypnotherapy. Moving into trance, I experienced a powerful vision in which two power animals came to me. They had been waiting for me to give them space and voice so they could offer clarity about how to face my fears, make peace with myself and move forward. Kaia guided this session beautifully and a kaleidoscope of knowings spilled into me. Missing pieces began to emerge. Strength flowed into me. I felt transformed and able to more fully address my lingering doubts about my direction, and solid confidence in my choices. Since that first session, the work has continued with Kaia and evolved. My spirituality and sexuality have become aligned. I am learning how to integrate what I experienced in hypnosis into my day-to-day life. Hypnosis has supported me to know myself on a very deep level. WK

Shannon came highly recommended to me a few years back and I really had no idea what an amazing and influential journey I was about to embark on. By far, my work with her (in the past and currently) has been some of the most fascinating and enlightening work I have done for myself...ever. I went to see her initially for what I considered to be the reason only to have her help me uncover the real truth behind the blocks I was having with my health, my work and my relationship - and the reason was completely different. Shannon's gentle guidance, and wisdom helped lead me to making some very healthy and necessary changes in my life. The most amazing part is that once I made these changes, not only did they feel right, everything just seemed to click into place and things started flowing again. My business has become more profitable, my relationships have become healthier and I am living a much better version of me - my true self. I owe so much of my personal growth and awareness to Shannon and her continual guidance and advice. She is a woman so much wiser than her years and so intuitive. I believe she was able to fairly quickly evaluate what was going on in my life intuitively, which saved us a lot of time initially. Then we were able to jump right in and do the work. I also love her guided mediations and how personalized and specific they can be.

I sought out Shannon because I have some subconscious blocks regarding relationships and I wanted to see if hypnosis would help me get past them. I immediately loved Shannon. She has a really calming and beautiful spirit that is immediately obvious upon meeting her. I saw her for 8 sessions. I really enjoyed my time working with her and I feel like we worked on a lot of core issues that I am struggling with. My only disappointment was that I was only put under hypnosis 2 times, and we focused on other issues aside from relationships in those sessions. The therapy was actually much more like traditional therapy in that most sessions involved discussing my life and issues I am dealing with. She gave me several exercises to complete that I found very helpful and enlightening. She has a really powerful and genuine energy. I would definitely recommend her, I would just say you should go in expecting more traditional therapy with hypnosis as one tool that she may use, but it wasn't the primary focus of the work. I am very grateful to Shannon for her help and I hope that many others will find her and benefit from her healing gifts.

Shannon is an excellent hypnotherapist. I've worked with other practitioners in the past, with poor results. Shannon was able to get right to the root of my problems and major shifts occurred within only a few sessions. She is highly intuitive! I really recommend her!

Cathy Resler helped me through a very stressful work situation that was exacerbating migraines. Her insightful questions helped me make the connection between the physical effects of stress and subsequent headaches. She taught me relaxation techniques and other post-hypnotic suggestions that had positive effects. Sometimes hypnotists can be very good at what they do, but you want someone with a good "bedside manner" who gives you an instant sense of being trustworthy. That person is Cathy Resler.

I recently had a session with Cathy Resler to help with debilitating migraines. I felt at ease almost immediately by Cathy's demeanor and soothing presence. She is very intuitive and a talented hypnotist. So much so that I got more benefit after just one session than I thought possible! I know this will take time, but I am encouraged that I am well on my way to wellness.

I'm so grateful to have found Victoria. She's a great hypnotherapist and healer, one of the BEST!. She has helped me deal through some very stressful situations that were affecting my performance in general. Life can throw some ugly curve balls when you least expect it. So, I turn to Victoria each and every time. Not being a fan of taking meds to deal with stress, insomnia, etc., I turned to hypnotherapy and boy was I glad. Victoria really cares for her clients. Our sessions are never rushed and she knows what to ask to get to the root of the problem. When our hypnosis sessions are over, I always feel so calmed and collected. Having been to several hypnotherapist in my life, I think Victoria is one of the BEST. She also gives you an mp3 recording of your session to play at home. Whenever a stressful situation comes back, I just do my meditation while listening to our recordings, and 20 minutes later, voila! I'm ready to handle any issue. Thank you, Victoria for being there for me. :)

I enjoyed a very positive experience with Hypnotherapy Oasis. I used the service once to improve relaxation techniques. Within the session, I experienced deep relaxation. I received a personalized CD to facilitate a similar deep relaxed state whenever situational challenges create an overload of stress. I continue to occasionally use the CD and believe Hypnotherapy Oasis provides tailored services to help clients achieve goals that seem out of reach.

I used Carol's hypnotherapy to manage anxiety before a major surgery, to manage pain after surgery, and to help with a positive outcome. As a result, I went into surgery without apprehension. The doctor told me to expect severe pain for a week after surgery and gave me oxy. I never had to take a single pill as I had no pain at all because Carol taught me hypnosis skills to manage pain. My potentially 3 night hospital stay was only one night because I felt so good. At my 2 week follow-up visit the surgeon released me far sooner than he normally would have he said because I had healed so well and quickly. I credit the work that I did with Carol for preparing me for a pain free outcome and quick recovery. I recommend her without hesitation.

I've had more than 1 session with this woman. All 3 times I was going through heavy things - one time i had just had a spinal surgery and Christina gave me a session as i lay in my bed healing from that - that i received counsel on through the alchemical hypnosis process. i even reconnected with my first true guide/friend - my childhood dog. Her sessions brought clarity to me during dark doubtful times and felt restorative physically, emotionally and spiritually. All 3 sessions felt very different and were honed toward my situation. i highly recommend Christina's services.

Receiving Alchemical Hypnotherapy was a new experience for me, and I was somewhat anxious when starting. Christina's professionalism and calm presence helped bring me into a relaxed and comfortable state of mind. Because of this and the hypnotherapy meditation I was able to work on some of my deeper emotional and relational challenges. Challenges that I was not able to access through other forms of therapy.

I'm really, really happy to give Regan a good recommendation. He not only helped me, but also my sister and her daughter. I thought therapy would be for a long time, like a year or two because my problems were so huge. In the first session he got rid of a very serious fear I had and after three years now that fear hasn't come back. Then he started working on my PTSD and after a few more sessions I had such relief that it felt like a miracle. I had forgotten how it felt to feel normal. I'm now feeling well enough to have him coach me in a new career. Can't thank him enough that is why I gave him 5 stars. My name is Logan if you needed that.

I first hired Regan to help me lose weight about 5 years ago and to help me get over being in two abusive relationships. He used "Tapping" and Hypnosis, both of which he taught me how to do on my own, to help me solve both problems. I lost 72 pounds and have keep it off so far. I no longer have the panic attacks caused by the memories of my abuse. He is now coaching me how to be a success at my new career. I have a whole new life and purpose now and have never been happier. My son is now using him and I love seeing the changes in him. He wants to send in a review too. I rate Regan at 5 stars plus.

Our clients get the full advantage of each one's unique expertise and specialty services. Both of us are highly skilled hypnotherapists but with specialities in different areas. I have over forty years of counseling experience and specialize in addiction and 12-step support, family and relationship problems, memory/recall (test taking), spirituality and resolution of traumatic events. Lynn specializes in smoke cessation, building confidence and self-esteem, weight management, and professional development (e.g. accomplishing goals, public speaking, procrastination). Of course, both of us handle many other concerns and we consult each other regularly to be sure each client receives the very best we can offer.
