Hazel: Just wanted to let you know that our session was a success! I was able to drive a 3.5 hour trip without any panic! I was calm, confident and found the trip to be very enjoyable. Thank you for giving me my freedom back!

"I listened to Hazel's audio download again and realized that some of the suggestions she gave were exactly what the doctor commented on after surgery: Took very little sedative; little blood loss; my blood pressure was excellent. I know the surgery went very well because of her hypnosis and I am healing very quickly."

I've got my power back! I'm sitting in the airport, Hazel, going over this extraordinary weekend. Sometimes you have an experience and meet someone who changes your life. You are that someone in my life. Thank you.

Thank you Hazel. I truly enjoy my visits with you! With your help I am making some positive changes and I couldn't have a better coach. I feel better about who I am and where I am headed. Thanks again.

I couldn't wait to tell you. Listened to your download last night and this morning and enjoyed my flight. I was calm and relaxed the entire time, even in moderate turbulence. Again, thank you for being an instrument of change and improving my quality of life.

I passed my tests! I am so so happy to be done. This was my easiest testing in 24 years of flying. I know it is the result of my sessions with you as well as the wonderful CD on focus and concentration. I can't thank you enough!

Finding you to help me with lifelong weight issues has been a miracle for me! I find I am eating less, evaluating when I am full and stopping, as well as making better food choices! I look forward to our session appointments as one of the best things in my life 🙂
