“I am losing weight without having to think much about it!”

-Catherine, Mountain View, CA

“Cynthia Sholes helped me tremendously in my weight loss program.  I tried many things over the years to lose weight and was successful in losing many pounds.  However, I couldn’t keep those pounds off.  I read an article about hypnosis and weight loss in my local paper and decided to give it a try.

“Cynthia takes a holistic approach to help you lose weight.  She uses a combination of hypnotherapy, nutritional counseling and Neuro Emotional Technique to help you to reach your goals easily and safely.  I was amazed how I lost pounds without feeling deprived or hungry.  I never obsessed about food and calorie intake like I had in the past.  Cynthia’s methods encouraged me to eat healthy, maintain portion control and exercise regularly.  I have changed my habits on a subconscious as well as a conscious level.  The cds she provides reinforce the personal sessions.  These cds have the added benefit of relieving stress and relaxing you mind and body.

I encourage you to contact Cynthia if you want to lose weight.  Hypnotherapy has worked so well for me that I will enthusiastically use it for other behavioral changes I want to make.”

What People are Saying About and Hypnosis for Comfortable Childbirth and HypnoBirthing®:

“I was able to stay present and connected with our child, my husband and myself throughout the labor and birth experience. I stayed in a hypnotic place, relaxed and able to carry on conversations between contractions, even during active labor, without any medication. The experience of birth was wonderfully moving, meaningful and related. Just how we wanted to bring our baby into the world.”

– Helen, San Mateo , CA

“I just wanted to thank you so much for the childbirth hypnosis class and the tapes/CD for childbirth preparation. This was my 3rd birth, and it was so different from the other two! In spite of doing childbirth prep classes with the other two, I was always completely overwhelmed and had that ‘I can’t do it’ and ‘I-need-an-epidural-NOW’ feeling. This time around that thought never even occurred to me – with the hypnosis preparation and my doula, I was able to breathe into and release tension during contractions, and relax completely right after each one, thus giving me the strength to go on. It wasn’t completely painless, but it felt more like a good, strenuous workout than like an insurmountable task. I never once considered pain medication, and even though relaxed, I was fully aware of what was going on around me. I also recovered instantly after birth, and now knowing the secret to easier childbirth, who knows, I may have a fourth one…Again, thanks so much and keep up the good work.”

– Yvonne, Belmont , CA

“Having attended your HypnoBirthing classes, I can’t imagine giving birth any other way! Everyone who helped deliver my baby, including the Midwife could not believe the effects of HypnoBirthing. The visualizing techniques really worked for me. I realized that under hypnosis, I remained focused and was able to manage the intensity of the surges without any major discomfort. When I didn’t use the techniques, each surge was felt with intense pain that became difficult to tolerate. My husband and I felt a lot more confident regarding the entire birthing experience. With the knowledge and confidence, my husband took a very active role during the birth of our child. The HypnoBirthing class was absolutely invaluable and I would recommend it to everyone.”

– Irene, Redwood City, CA

” Hypnobirthing was invaluable. The nurses were amazed at how calm I was. I went to Hawaii during the C section and now I use the techniques for my carpal tunnel syndrome. Every type-A, working woman like me should do HypnoBirthing to transition from a corporate executive to being a mom.”

– Deborah, Palo Alto, CA
