About

What Makes Us Unique

by Andrew Slade

I was with a client the other day, a Doctor actually, and she said to me, “Your business, the service you provide, the care you give, Helen’s soothing voice, the way I feel after a session, the way you look after people – it’s unique, I can’t imagine you would get that anywhere else, you need to tell everyone! Just look at your reviews, that tells the story…!”

And so I did look at our reviews and thought that the best way to try to explain “What Makes Us Unique” was through the eyes, or words, of our clients…

First of all, being the analytical type, I decided to get together all of our reviews, from Google, Yelp, Thumbtack, Bark, the National Guild of Hypnotists, and sort through them to remove any duplicates. There were a few, but, at the time of writing (November 2019) it still left 79 unique testimonials. Of the 79, there is one blot, one 4-star review. It has always slightly annoyed me (I’m a perfectionist), so let’s get that review out of the way right now! Here it is:

Pearl: “Helen has a very soothing voice and is easy to talk to. The session was very relaxing. I felt rejuvenated afterwards.”

Sounds pretty good to me, why not 5 stars? Oh well, some people, I’ve heard, never give 5 stars, out of principle; maybe that applies to Pearl, who knows? “I wish all my reviews were like that!”, a business owner friend remarked!

So that leaves 78 5-star reviews. Pretty good, seeing as we only started asking for Google reviews 10 months ago. I noticed recently that Google has started to categorize our reviews on Google My Business, just as Trip Advisor does so that gave me the idea to do likewise. This is what I came up with.

Helen is my wife, so I’m biased, but I think that she has a special talent, a sixth sense; somehow intuitively she knows what the client wants, what they need to hear. So often the person who walks out of the door at the end of the session is a different person to the person who walked in…

Katherina: “I wholeheartedly recommend working with her – she’s truly helped to change my life.”

Michelle: “I have been a smoker for 20 + years smoking 2 packs of cigarettes a day. My health was declining as well, on April 4th 2019 I seen Helen for session of hypnosis for my smoking and on that very day my life changed. Instantly after that 1 session I stopped smoking and no craving for it whatsoever. My blood sugar had been 300-high 400’s and is now 103 my breathing is so much better I was able to walk 2 miles and run a half of mile without incident… Helen saved my life and I’m forever thankful.”

Robin: “I feel so fortunate to be able to share my beautiful experience with Helen to anyone considering hypnotherapy. I was ill for some time (1.5 yrs) and had lost my “strong constitution” to keep fighting and finally made the decision to try hypnotherapy at my doctor’s suggestion. I called and scheduled a session with Helen and my life literally changed on that special day that I met with her.”

Linda: “I have been smoke free since my session in early 2017 and I don’t miss it. I feel like I have my life back! Thank you Helen!”

Most people Helen sees have never been hypnotized before. Often, they are a bit nervous, anxious or even skeptical. Helen likes to spend plenty of time with people, getting to know them, talking over what issues they want to overcome, what they want to achieve. She won’t start the hypnosis until they are ready. She doesn’t want to rush them, she genuinely wants to help people and if it’s their first time, she wants it to be special…

Haley: “After our first session i saw improvement in myself. I stopped overthinking things as much, the pain in my chest had subsided and I felt more motivation for myself. I was less scared and anxious about everything.”

Krystal: “…scary for being the first time but she made it so easy.”

Bob: “I had a wonderful experience, especially since this was my first time ever to try Hypnotherapy. To be honest I was a little skeptical and thought I could not be hypnotized as my only exposure to it was from some entertainment shows and my session was nothing like that.”

Meltem: “She helped me greatly from the very first visit and I was so impressed by how hypnotherapy improved all aspects of my life.”

John: “This was my first time under hypnosis and I loved the experience. Helen is a truly unique, kind, and gentle person. I would recommend her to anyone including my friends and family. I am really glad I met her.”

Terrace: “This was my 1st time ever trying hypnotherapy and it was a great experience. Any issues that you have can be worked out in a few visits. I would recommend Helen to anyone.”

Veronica: “First time for hypnotherapy and I felt an immediate difference. Can’t wait for the next session.”

Tetyana: “It was my first time with hypnotherapy and I enjoyed it. Helen is great and I highly recommend her therapy.”

A good listener is hard to find. I’m certainly no good at it (maybe I need some hypnosis!). I have lots of information to tell people and I tend to overwhelm them with facts and figures. Helen, on the other hand…

Claudia: “She took her time to listen and implement strategies during our meeting.”

Donna: “During my first appointment, I could already sense that Helen is sweet, compassionate, informative, and a great listener.”

Kerry: “My experience with Helen was great! She was so pleasant and listened very well.

Yolanda: “I was put at ease as soon as I met Helen had a wonderful experience. She was extremely professional, knowledgeable and very sympathetic to my needs and wants and she listened.

Cathy: “Even before I arrived she had done some research reading up on the topic of my future visit. She really ‘listened‘ and as we talked she took even more notes. She’s great and I would recommend her to anyone.”

Mara: “She is a great listener, non judgmental, very empathetic and soothing.”

Roselle: “Helen listened intently to me and connected with what I needed to accomplish in my session. She was kind, attentive and effective. I would highly recommend her.”

If I had a dollar for every person who told me that Helen has just the right voice for what she does, I would be very wealthy! But, don’t just take my word for it…

Krystal: “Her office was so clean and organized her chair was so nice, her voice was so soothing put me into hypnosis from the start.”

Sharon: “Her calm demeanor and soothing voice relaxed me immediately and I was elated with the results.”

Jose: “She has a soft, soothing voice, yet the ability to sway the most stubborn minds into a state of healing.”

Darlyne: “Helen’s voice is so soothing and I leave her office feeling so much better about myself.”

Sharon: “Helen has such a soothing voice.”

Pearl: “Helen has a very soothing voice and is easy to talk to.”

Haley: “Her voice is so calming and she really knows what she’s doing! I have recommended her to all my friends and family!”

Meltem: “Her soft voice brings tranquility to the room and the results were beyond my expectations.”

Polly: “Helen Marie’s caring, soft spoken voice put me in such relaxed state, that her suggestions completely went to my subconscious and WORKED!! I haven’t felt this good in YEARS!! I highly recommend Helen Marie!!!”

As I mentioned before, Helen is my wife, so you should take my views with a pinch of salt! However, she is sweet, caring, kind and gentle; I’ve been married to her for nearly 25 years, so I should know – that’s why I married her! She has her qualifications, she keeps up to date with continuing professional education, she is very knowledgeable and professional (see below), but, more importantly, she is genuine and herself. We want people to feel comfortable, to trust us, to have a great experience. Let’s see what her clients think…

Sylvia: “Helen was super sweet. I came in because I was experiencing social anxiety, which I’ve had for a long time. After the session I do feel calmer and the social anxiety is less frequent. I really liked the fact that they followed up with me a couple of times to make sure I was doing fine.”

Donna: “During my first appointment, I could already sense that Helen is sweet, compassionate, informative, and a great listener.”

Felipe: “Helen is the sweetest, understanding, professional and patient person. I highly recommend her. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much Helen.”

Robin: “Beautiful and very caring special lady!”

Meltem: “Thank you to both Helen and Andrew for such loving and caring human beings.”

Paul: “Helen is simply delightful and such a positive caring person.”

Tina: “Helen is professional and caring. She has helped me so much dealing with some personal issues I am facing. I feel stronger and more positive when I leave her sessions.”

Robin: “Many people are granted with unique gifts and I must say that for me, Helen’s gifts of speaking in her own soft, yet emphatic, caring, and comforting style is certainly a beautiful gift that has allowed me to become more accepting and loving to myself and of life situations that come about.”

Linda: “It was her caring and professionalism that really made this a successful experience. I have been smoke free since my session in early 2017 and I don’t miss it. I feel like I have my life back! Thank you Helen!”

Pedro: “Helen Marie is AMAZING! She is professional, knowledgeable, skilled and informative as well as caring, kind and honest.”

Darlyne: “I have always been curious about hypnotherapy and was fortunate to find Helen. Helen is very kind, knowledgeable and highly skilled.”

Michelle: “Helen is very kind, and compassionate and doesn’t rush the process but at the same time knows how to guide the session along to reach the goal at hand.”

A S: “Every sessions with Helen were amazing! She is very kind and a great hypnotherapist. Highly recommend.”

John: “Helen is a truly unique, kind, and gentle person.”

F L: “Helen has helped me through trauma. She is gentle and does not judge. She genuinely wants to help.”

It’s great to be sweet, caring, kind and gentle, but does she know what she’s talking about? Helen has helped many, many people from all walks of life, including numerous healthcare professionals. When she first started, Helen used to be a bit overawed when she saw a Doctor, for example. Now she realizes that everyone is the same, they all have their own doubts, anxieties and insecurities. Let’s hear what they’ve got to say…

Catherine Zelner, MD: “I enjoyed my first session with Helen immensely and felt peaceful and happy afterwards. I decided to repeat my experience, and over three more sessions with Helen’s wonderful direction, I learned how to quiet my mind and work through several life events that have caused me much stress over the years. I did not know it could be this easy and pleasant. I feel I have experienced great results and will continue to work with her. Catherine Zelner, M.D.”

Meltem: “I am a holistic medicine practitioner and having experienced different modalities of physical and emotional health practices, hypnotherapy was not one of them. When I met Helen, I couldn’t wait to start doing sessions with her. I had a feeling that it was going to be a good experience and it turned out to be an amazing one! She is professional in every sense of the word. She makes you feel very comfortable throughout the session. Her soft voice brings tranquility to the room and the results were beyond my expectations. She helped me greatly from the very first visit and I was so impressed by how hypnotherapy improved all aspects of my life.”

Connie: “I went to have help losing weight & control my cravings, I felt okay afterwards I didn’t feel much different but now 2 weeks later I’ve lost 9-10 lbs & feel in control of my cravings for the first time in years. My night time cravings are now controllable & I feel in charge of my appetite. I’m thankful that I tried something new for me that didn’t involve pills or drugs. I would do it again if I started to feel that loss of control for sure. Thank you Helen. PS I’m a RN & have tried practically every diet out there. I was impressed with the outcome.”

What about other clients, what do they think…?

Bob: “I highly recommend Helen she is a true professional.”

Liliana: “Helen is an amazing healthcare professional who has been a true blessing for my family and I.”

Alexandra: “Thank you very much, Helen!!! I’d definitely recommend her as a professional who can help people to overcome their fears.”

Courtney: “Helen was extremely professional and patient with both myself and my daughter! My anxiety has improved a lot and my daughter’s ADD symptoms have improved to make her a little more organized for school.”

Felipe: “Helen is the sweetest, understanding, professional and patient person.”

Jacqueline: “I am smoke free from the day I left her office. I would recommend her if you are looking for help and are interested in hypnosis. She is very professional and hypnosis does work!”

Ali: “Helen is very professional and has a calming presence. The session I had was very positive and left me with a feeling of well being and peace.”

Shirley: “It was a positive experience for me. Priceless to have stopped pulling my hair. I stopped with only one session. Helen is extremely professional and you won’t regret choosing her as your hypnotherapist.”

Robert: “Helen is compassionate yet professional. The hypnosis experience was very much as she described. It left me feeling extremely relaxed.”

Linda: “It was her caring and professionalism that really made this a successful experience.”

Yolanda: “I was put at ease as soon as I met Helen had a wonderful experience. She was extremely professional, knowledgeable and very sympathetic to my needs and wants and she listened.”

Michelle: “Helen is great and I would recommend her services to anyone. She is pleasant, knowledgeable and has a very calming spirit.”

Darlyne: “I have always been curious about hypnotherapy and was fortunate to find Helen. Helen is very kind, knowledgeable and highly skilled.”

Pedro: “Helen Marie is AMAZING! She is professional, knowledgeable, skilled and informative as well as caring, kind and honest.”

Raquel: “Helen was so comforting and informative from the minute I walked in. I was very resistant to the hypnosis ideology because my flight anxiety is so severe that I believed it was incurable. But after my appointment on Saturday, I was on a plane and in another state the following Monday.”

Donna: “During my first appointment, I could already sense that Helen is sweet, compassionate, informative, and a great listener.”

Nicola: “Helen was such a great person from the get go, made me feel very relaxed and filled me with confidence, excellent session very informative would highly recommend anybody to have the experience.”

Well, I wanted to include some comments on our charges, what you get for your money. However, not one of the 79 reviews had any mention of our costs. I think that tells its own story. In nearly 10 years of running Helen Marie Hypnotherapy we have not had one complaint about our fees (we’re probably not charging enough!)

In my experience, people are more concerned with the quality of the service they are receiving rather than the cost. If they are happy and we have been able to help them, the cost is irrelevant. Not that I think our charges are high, I don’t think they are. We are upfront with what we charge; our fees are clearly shown on our website.

What do our competitors charge? Who knows, we’ve looked – if you can find out, please let us know!

We do know how most of them operate, however, because our own clients have told us. Typically, they encourage you to come in for a “free consultation”, then they get you to complete lots of paperwork and want to know who the financial decision maker is in the household. Often you don’t get any hypnosis on the first visit, maybe not even the second – and before you know it you’ve committed yourself to half a dozen sessions over the next couple of months and you’re not far short of a thousand dollars out of pocket… Why don’t you check out their reviews, sort them into order, starting with the lowest rating?  You be the judge!

We let you know the cost before you start, we charge per session, not per hour, and we don’t tie you into a contract.

It’s not just hypnosis. Helen has lots of tools and techniques she can pass on to her clients. Instinctively, she seems to know what they need…

D Z Machine: “Helen is an amazing person that really makes me feel at home. Her Hypnotherapy has given me the mindset and tools to deal with the stressful situations that come from being in this Sport.”

Toni Marie: “Helen is Amazing…she gives you other tools besides the hypnotherapy for extra support & she truly cares for her clients. So far im doing awesome and im so happy!!! Thank you xo.”

Bob: “I must confess it was not at all what I had imagined and I received immediate benefits! Helen gave me some valuable tools I continue to use everyday!”

Krystal: “It’s not magic you also have to put your part of the work but she also can teach you technique that will help you deal with your situation and I have been feeling so much better I recommend her to anyone give it a try so worth it the experience was amazing…”

Raquel: ”She taught me techniques and habits to practice before and during the flight.”

Liliana: “When I met with Helen for the first time, I was under immense stress and pressure from work and I was having trouble with presentations and even focusing on tasks. During the session, Helen really helped me feel relaxed and showed me techniques that I can use at work to feel confident and focused.”

Claudia: “I went to Helen to help with anxiety for exams and clinicals. I learned invaluable techniques to center my self and prevent a downward progression of anxiousness.”

F L: “Helen has helped me through trauma. She is gentle and does not judge. She genuinely wants to help. Her techniques have really helped me.”

So how do people feel during and after the session? The most overwhelming response is a feeling of calm and relaxation. Here are client’s reactions…

Sharon: “Having been hypnotized years ago for smoking cessation, I met with Helen with great expectations regarding a phobia and I was not disappointed! Her calm demeanor and soothing voice relaxed me immediately and I was elated with the results.”

Liliana: “During the session, Helen really helped me feel relaxed and showed me techniques that I can use at work to feel confident and focused. The therapy changed me completely and I feel more in control.”

Kerry: “My experience with Helen was great! She was so pleasant and listened very well. My session with her had me feeling extremely relaxed and she gave me some great practices to utilize at home to achieve this same feeling. I would definitely recommend her to others!”

Conny: “Great experience. Felt so relaxed during and after. It’s not like what you see on TV.”

Patricia: “I was terrified of lightning. I wouldn’t leave the house or get out of the car if it started to lightning. After just one session I am no longer terrified. I am calm and I am able to get out of the car. I really didn’t think it was possible to be helped but one session worked. Helen also talked to me about anxiety and stress and after leaving I felt much calmer and relaxed and I plan on going back every few months for a session.”

Camille: “Hellen is awesome. She helped me address a situation that I had been dealing with for many years. I seeked for her services and don’t regret. The session was very relaxing and I a great experience. I recommend her 100%.”

Nicola: “Made me feel very relaxed and filled me with confidence, excellent session very informative would highly recommend anybody to have the experience.”

Pearl: “The session was very relaxing. I felt rejuvenated afterwards.”

Andrea: “I joined the session because my mom only speaks Spanish and it was a very relaxing experience for both of us.”

Robert: “The hypnosis experience was very much as she described. It left me feeling extremely relaxed.”

Polly: “I wish I would have tried it sooner. Helen Marie’s caring, soft spoken voice put me in such relaxed state, that her suggestions completely went to my subconscious and WORKED!! I haven’t felt this good in YEARS!! I highly recommend Helen Marie!!!”

Candie: “I enjoyed my visit with Helen. I was relaxed from the moment I met her. I would recommend her highly.”

Well, if you’ve read this far, you won’t be surprised to know that well over half of the testimonials we’ve receivedRecommendHelen or think she isGreat”, “WonderfulorAmazing”. To list them all might be a bit much, but asAmazingsounds just that bit better, in my opinion, here are Helen’sAmazingreviews…!

D Z Machine: “Helen is an amazing person that really makes me feel at home.”

Krystal: “Helen was so amazing, very warming such a beautiful home.”

Liliana: “Helen is an amazing healthcare professional who has been a true blessing for my family and I.”

Meltem: “I had a feeling that it was going to be a good experience and it turned out to be an amazing one!”

Paul: “Wow!! What an amazing experience”

Pedro: “Helen Marie is AMAZING! She is professional, knowledgeable, skilled and informative as well as caring, kind and honest.”

Robin: “One amazing change was that she was able to aid in directing me to find my happy/safe place within that I was never able to locate by myself.”

Toni Marie: “Helen is Amazing…she gives you other tools besides the hypnotherapy for extra support & she truly cares for her clients. So far im doing awesome and im so happy!!! Thank you xo”

Darvin: “Amazing experience!”

Milka: “Amazing experience looking forward for my second appointment once I left the house I feel totally different !!”

Mara: “Speaking from the perspective of a skeptic, I was amazed at and the immediacy of the benefits of Helen’s hypnotherapy.”

Kristin: “I was amazed by the results and she really has helped me to be more confident and calm in my life can’t thank her enough.”

A S: “Every sessions with Helen were amazing! She is very kind and a great hypnotherapist.”

Well, that’s just about it! Hopefully this has given some insight into how we operate and what our clients think of the service we offer! I think we’re unique – let us know what you think!

I was wondering how to end this, and then a thought occurred to me. Did anybody mention me…?!!

Paul: “Andrew was really helpful in making the whole process of setting up the hypnosis appointment easy and painless.”

Meltem: “Thank you to both Helen and Andrew for such loving and caring human beings.”

Thanks Paul & Meltem!!

As I often say to people, I do pretty much everything in our business, the website, brochures, marketing, appointments, follow ups etc. Everything that is, apart from the most important thing – helping people just like you!!

Helen and I work as a team. She couldn’t do what I do, she wouldn’t want too – and I can’t do what she does.

Helen is special, I love her dearly and I’m very proud of what she is doing, the difference she is making in people’s lives…

Thank you to all 79 people who took the time and trouble to “put pen to paper” to let us know your views of what a session with Helen Marie Hypnotherapy is all about. Helen has loved working with each and every one of you, as I have. Your reviews give the next person, who has never been hypnotized before, who is a nervous, skeptical and not sure whether to proceed, the little push they need to ask for help…

I’ll end with a quote from one of my favorite motivational speakers, Zig Ziglar:

You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”

Just before finalizing this article, we received our 50th Google Review – all 5-Star. It came after Helen helped a lady prepare for a special occasion – her wedding! I thought it would be appropriate to show Savana’s review, and Helen’s response, in full:

“Helen and I have had one session so far and it was unbelievably helpful and fulfilling. I saw her this time for general anxiety, but also because I was heading into my very stressful wedding weekend!! She is incredibly kind and warm, understanding, and uplifting. For those who do not live near her, please know that a virtual session DOES work. In fact, I think it actually helped me be more relaxed and open during the session as I was able to do it from home. I am already planning another session with her in about a month for fear of flying, but just seeing the success of my general anxiety meeting with her, I already feel more confident that my trip is going to go well. Please consider reaching out about hypnotherapy to Helen, even if you just have questions. They are SUPER kind and helpful.”

“Thank you, Savana! This is my 50th 5-Star Google Review and I think it’s appropriate that it is for a special occasion – your wedding! There is always so much to plan and prepare for a wedding (I remember mine nearly 25 years ago!) and sometimes if you’re not careful, the best day of your life is over before you know it. It’s very easy to spend so much time and effort trying to make sure that everything goes to plan and everyone is happy, that you don’t have the time to spend with your own family and husband! I’m so glad that I was able to help in some small way so that your Special Day is one that you’ll never forget!
I’m looking forward to seeing you again soon, and even though you are over 3000 miles away, the wonders of technology will ensure that we can enjoy our time together and work towards helping you to overcome your fear of flying!
Congratulations!!  Helen”
