Hypno-Health Client Testimonials

The following comments from people who experienced hypnotherapy with me are self-explanatory and attest to the variety of issues that can be resolved through hypnosis. Names have been omitted to protect client confidentiality.

Please note that the disclaimer provided below is required by Google to foster transparency for its users. I stand fully behind my services and work diligently with each client to achieve successful and lasting results.

Alcoholism (disclaimer)

"I just want to let you know that I am still alcohol-free, and have no desire to drink. I want to thank you so much for helping me overcome this problem."

Anxiety (disclaimer)

"I've had trouble with serious anxiety and depression most of my life. I made an appointment with Hugh Sadlier and almost cancelled it because of my skepticism about being able to go into a 'trance'. A few days before my appointment, I was having a serious panic attack and was quite miserable. My husband called Hugh, explained the situation and, miracle of miracles, I was actually guided by Hugh's calm manner and soothing voice for about 30 minutes. The panic and anxiety left me. I couldn't believe it. Nothing like that had ever happened to me so easily in over fifty years. I didn't need to take a pill or some other mood-altering substance to be free of it.

I have had twelve sessions with Hugh since that time. Each and every one has given me tools and healthy techniques to develop new awakenings and perspectives toward my journey to wholeness. The process of hypnotism with Hugh stimulated my ability to re-program myself. I know without a doubt I wouldn't have the confidence, joy and happiness I have today if I hadn't tried hypnotherapy with Hugh. It truly has been a miracle in my life."

Cancer (disclaimer)

"Every two months since my last visit with you, I visit the oncologist. And what does he say, this cancer specialist? 'I wish I could pat my own back for the way I'm treating you. But with no chemotherapy and no radiation I can't find anything wrong with you and can't take any credit.' The real question is: DOES HYPNOTHERAPY WORK? The answer is: ASK MY ONCOLOGIST!"

Depression (disclaimer)

"Since the age of five, I have suffered with severe bouts of depression. I have relied on psychologists and psychiatrists for the past twenty years to help me, using a combination of therapy and antidepressant drugs. I was never able to break from my cycle of depression. I went to Hugh Sadlier in desperation; I just wanted relief from the sadness and depression. Under hypnosis, I was able to free myself from reliving traumatic memories. I have not had a single bout of depression during the past year. Hugh's work and caring are genuine; his manner professional. Hypnotherapy has proven to be very effective for me."

Diverticular Disease (disclaimer)

"After doctors had recommended complete removal of my colon due to diverticular disease, you worked with me on this through hypnosis. I have not been hospitalized in many years and am still in possession of my colon. Many, many thanks."

Emotional Issues (disclaimer)

"My life has taken such a wonderful turn since seeing you. Thank you for being the catalyst in helping me let go of the pain and disappointment of the past. My life is full of wonder and delight now. I delight in each new day and experience. Life is grand and I'm very happy and grateful for your part in all these changes."

Encopressis (disclaimer)

"All my life I have suffered with gastrointestinal problems. Not only did I have constant pain and discomfort, but five years ago my encopressis began. Involuntary bowel movements, both at home and out in public, caused me extreme humiliation and embarrassment. Not knowing when my body would 'let go' kept me stressed and tense. After many tests and biopsies, no one could figure out what was causing my problem.

I sought the help of Hugh Sadlier. After my first session, I was able to do what I never thought possible. With Hugh's help, all of my symptoms disappeared. My life is now filled with joy and I have heart-felt gratitude for the work Hugh Sadlier does."

Fears (disclaimer)

"I just wanted to let you know how much my life has changed since my hypnosis session with you! I was afraid of flying, courtroom testimony, and speaking to groups. Since my session with you I have accepted an invitation to speak at a local annual meeting, made an airline reservation and flew without my husband and without medication, testified in court, and instructed a class of 43 students. It is so freeing not to waste time and energy on fear and anxiety. Thank you so much for helping me change my life."

Insomnia (disclaimer)

"After more than a year of trying prescription drugs and naturopathic and homeopathic remedies which gave transient relief, I admitted to myself that I indeed had a serious problem. Sleepless nights became my norm. Hugh Sadlier, of Hypno-Health, instructed me in self-hypnosis. This technique allowed me to free myself from my many months of sleepless nights. For me, as a skeptic, it was truly a miracle! I am now a disciple of this mode of therapy. I am extremely grateful for Mr. Sadlier's expertise in showing me the way to find a cure for a disorder which interfered with my life for so very long."

Smoking (disclaimer)

"I never thought I could really quit smoking. I had quit a dozen times and for up to two years, but always felt cheated because I couldn't smoke like others. After two sessions with Hugh Sadlier, I walked away without ever again having an urge to smoke. It is almost a year and far from feeling cheated, I feel free for the first time in 25 years!"

Surgery (disclaimer)

"After badly cutting my hand on a piece of metal, to the extent that the surgeon said he'd have to: 'reattach nerves and sew up muscle and tissue,' I was terrified of having the surgery. You helped me prepare for the surgery and recover from it quickly, comfortably and completely. I just returned from the 1-year follow-up with the doctor. He was pleased and amazed by the outcome. I have full mobility of my hand (including hyperextension) and even my light touch sensation is only minimally below the normal range. This, now 51-year-old man, is very grateful for your services and recommends you highly!"

Weight #1 (disclaimer)

"I am, correction—I was—a severe overeater.  My whole life I struggled with portion sizes (why eat one or two pieces of pizza when I can eat the whole pie?!).  Eating until it hurt was an everyday occurrence, and I was able to out-eat every boyfriend I ever had.

I decided it was time for a change and made an appointment with Hugh Sadlier at Hypno-Health.  When I first arrived, I was nervous and scared.  When I left I felt like moonwalking right out the door.  As a result of my work with Hugh, I am the lightest I've been since 21 (ten years ago).  I eat pizza and Thai food and sandwiches—all the things I used to—but only in small amounts. And I don't feel deprived or hungry. I keep a bag of snack food in the house and it lasts me two weeks, rather than one evening.

Seeing Hugh was easily the best thing I have ever done for myself.  If I have a single complaint, it would be that I only have one pair of jeans that still fit and even those now need a belt.  My wardrobe is severely handicapped at the moment...and I absolutely LOVE IT!!!"

Weight #2 (disclaimer)

This 54-year-old client was unable to send a testimonial, but when I talked with him fifteen months after his fourth and final hypnosis session, he shared these numbers with me.
