I was not entirely new to hypnotherapy prior to meeting Sarah Lantimo. I had used several audio therapy recordings and apps since 2016. These were for confidence building and anxiety relief. And I had one prior session with another hypnotherapist who taught me some self hypnosis techniques related to manage anxiety and setting goals. However, Sarah was the first hypnotherapist I worked regularly with. I had a plan in mind to meet with Sarah for 2 years prior to actually working with her, and I am beyond pleased with how she helped me! I met with Sarah to get help with financial goal setting and achievement. What I received was a whole lot more. I was pleased to hear upon meeting her that she first wanted to make sure whether this was really for me or not. That helped build trust. For people only familiar with stage hypnosis or movie and TV depictions of it, it is important to emphasize on the therapy part of hypnotherapy even more than the hypnosis part of it. That is exactly what Sarah is first and foremost a therapist and a coach. Hypnotherapy is merely a tool used as the means to achieve the desired results. It is important to point this out because Sarah spent a lot of time getting an assessment of who I am and what my goals are as well as my fears and vulnerabilities. Her's is a layered process over the course of multiple appointments, depending on what your intending to achieve. Much life peeling the layers of an onion, Sarah worked on different levels of my mind and my spirit. She makes it clear that each step needs to be done in succession and that we cannot build the higher steps without securing the foundations. As for the actual hypnosis portion itself, I assure you it is one of the most relaxing experiences you will have. You will close your eyes and automatically relax, and it will not feel forced. Also your mind is free to wander as needed, your subconscious is absorbing everything. Keep in mind hypnotherapists are not magicians, just as doctors are not magicians, and if you are serious about achieving results you need to listen to everything she tells you to do, both during the session and afterwards. Once again, these instructions and results will vary based on person and what they are seeking treatment for. The changes I felt were a lot more subtle than say, a person seeking treatment to stop smoking or stop nail biting. Since my focus was on setting financial goals we first had to understand what I really want and what I am afraid of. I notice the subtle changes at times when I am busy beyond reason and facing normally stressful situations. I am able to maneuver around difficult tasks and keep things together in a way I would not have been able to years ago. I am able to do more in shorter periods of time. As for my financial goals themselves, while they are still in the works, I have already been amazed by some of the results. An unexpected job change occurred in the middle of my sessions with Sarah. Not only did I get back on my feet quicker than I expected to, but I ended up earning more money in my new position than in my previous one. . Its not a miracle, its my subconscious operating differently than it used to. The results seem automatic because my decisions are different. It has also lead my to new direction and I found new means to achieve my financial goals which I was not able to find before, no matter how I searched. I am not saying that I have become a perfect person who never makes mistakes anymore. Far from it. Making mistakes is part of the human condition. But after working with Sarah I am more self aware than I have ever been before and I am constantly seeing changes in my life, and am always excited to see more of these! I wish the same for everyone and am forever grateful to Sarah who is committed to keeping her word and stays in touch as a friend even after the sessions are over. I strongly recommend Positive Hypnosis with Sarah Lantimo to anyone looking to make positive changes in their life, and I believe everyone should want to make these changes!
