Testimonials

“What I most appreciate about the hypnotherapy work I did with Elizabeth Connors-Keith is her deep compassion. She really cares about her client and has much empathy and warmth as she assists in the healing process. She also has many modalities and a variety of options on how best to use her expertise in each given situation. I so appreciate her true concern and intent listening. I felt “heard” in my sessions with her and noticed a definite lifting of some of the stress and a shifting of some of the ingrained habits that were not beneficial to me. How I choose to look at my past is different out of the work I did with her. Most remarkable of all is that it seemed simple and comfortable to make these changes. Most thankful for her help!”

“I have sought Elizabeth’s expert and professional services for several of my concerns because she is extremely effective at what she does. After meeting with her [just once] in her office, all of our sessions have been done over the phone in the comfort of my home. She is very affordable, and most importantly, she is the best hypnotherapist and you will be delighted, as I am, with the results.”

“Elizabeth Connors-Keith makes behavior change easy; it’s that simple. I was a smoker for 28 years on and off (mostly on). I quit smoking after 1 session with Elizabeth. Also, I was an everyday drinker until 1 session with Elizabeth got me to quit drinking entirely. Since then, I have continued to see her for help with other behavior changes. She has helped me get rid of negative habits, and she has helped me instill good habits. I know that if I hadn’t found Elizabeth and Hypnosis for Health, I would still be struggling with many issues that I’ve struggled with my whole life. She has even helped me overcome baggage from previous relationships so that my relationship now is a healthy one. To anyone struggling with behavior change, you must call Hypnosis for Health. Set aside any pre-conceived notions you may have about hypnosis, and make the call. I think the hardest part is just picking up the phone. The behavior change that comes after a session with Elizabeth is easy. You won’t be disappointed.”

Alcohol

 “I am in the construction business and, as the saying goes, we work hard and drink harder. Over the years it progressed from social drinking with the boys to every day and weekends. Sometimes we drank at work to cure the shakes. I finally grew tired of it but couldn’t quit on my own. Then I researched hypnosis and looked for an accomplished hypnotherapist; that’s when I found Elizabeth Connors-Keith. When I left her office I was very focused and full of energy and a non-drinker. No withdrawals or any thought of drinking. It is amazing. Elizabeth is fabulous and her voice is soothing. She gets to my soul and instills things deep into the subconscious. I highly recommend her services for any issue life brings that you may need help overcoming.”

 “Elizabeth helped me with sporatic alcohol abuse, which had carried over from my years in the military. After only 1 session the desire for alcohol was completely gone, and I did not replace it with any other negative behavior. Now [after a second session], the thought of using alcohol turns me off with a slightly queasy feeling. Not being controlled by a substance any more is pure freedom, and it was done quickly without the use of medicine, months of counseling or group therapy! I continue to see Elizabeth for other improvements such as increased happiness, more confidence and less stress; whatever I want!”

Anger 

“After a lifetime of issues with anger and lots of talk therapy, I needed to try something different. In researching options, I decided to try hypnotherapy. I contacted Elizabeth to see if she might be able to help me overcome the traumas of my childhood that were the root of my anger. Honestly, I was a little skeptical, but I went for my first session with an open mind. Boy am I surprised by how effective hypnotherapy has been for me. After only a few sessions I am a changed man. I am much more calm and relaxed, and happy! My family and coworkers have noticed the change in my attitude and my reaction to stress and issues that would have set me off in the past. It’s an amazing therapy and I’m so thankful I gave it a try! Thank you Elizabeth!!”

  Anxiety

“I was suffering from nightly anxiety attacks which resulted in my going to the local ER twice this past July, as well as tingling sensations in my arms, and a burning sensation that would go up my arms when I just talked to someone about my situation. The doctors couldn’t explain my symptoms and I was put on sleep and anxiety meds. At that time I saw Elizabeth’s donation of a session for the KEET Auction (PBS station). Having had a good experience with weight loss some 30 years ago with Hypnosis, I bought her donation.

  The symptoms that were due to fear-related emotional stress were alleviated by Elizabeth’s service. She has also been instrumental in alleviating the fears I had with various tests: MRI, Sleep test, Eye injections. I turned 70 this year….this all falls under self maintenance which often goes hand in hand with fear. Aging people facing new health issues need to learn how to deal with these mental fears and physical changes. Elizabeth’s hypnosis treatment is PILL FREE and WORKS!  

I’m most grateful for the gentle, professional and knowledgeable expertise Elizabeth brings to a most underrated form of self awareness and healing. I am happy to recommend her to those of you who are considering Hypnosis.”

 Childhood Abuse

“I am a 60 year-old woman and I’m a recovering alcoholic and addict and before I met Elizabeth I was living a way limited life…. I’ve been clean and sober for 25 years and have had countless hours of counseling, therapy, workshops and education but still lacking a wholesome life. [Since] I’ve been seeing Elizabeth, the ghosts of my abusive childhood have miraculously lost its power. After every visit the fears, feelings of low self-esteem and my compulsive overeating habits are now easier to get under control and each time I see Elizabeth I’m becoming more & more empowered and my life is no longer limited. I’m really feeling wholesome for the first time in my life.”

Depression

“I was feeling helpless against my depression, and Elizabeth turned my thinking around in a matter of a few weeks. Far superior to drug therapy or psychiatry. Highly recommended!”

Fears

“My wife suggested that I contact Elizabeth Connors-Keith to help me deal with a fear of heights that has seriously impacted my life since I was 11 years old. I was extremely skeptical of hypnotherapy, particularly the idea of being hypnotized over the phone. I was amazed by Elizabeth’s ability to reach my subconscious mind and came out of the first session feeling relaxed and at ease. After 3 sessions, I am climbing ladders and going on rooftops (important tasks for me as a real estate developer). I also was able to hike a steep and narrow trail and dive off a high platform on my recent vacation to Greece – both things I never would have considered doing just weeks earlier. I believe that I will finally be able to completely overcome my fear of heights. It’s reassuring to know that if I do hit a roadblock along the way, Elizabeth is there to help me past it. I can’t recommend Elizabeth strongly enough.”

[A man came to me to get help for his fear of eating fish caused by childhood trauma involving eating fish and also for his fear of deep water from a near drowning accident. Later his wife wrote me:] “I just wanted to tell you that my husband and I went to dinner a few nights ago and he ordered Fish and Chips. He actually ate it and said it was good. He will continue to experiment with eating fish. Thank you for your help.” [Then even later she wrote:] “When we were in Costa Rica my husband ate fish and went in the pool. It was really great, he actually liked the fish he ate. It really is amazing that you can make such a difference. Thank You again.”

Hair-Pulling (Trichotillomania)

“I had been living with the inability to help a beloved child with a very self-destructive habit.  This habit has seemed to increase in intensity over some years with, age and stresses.  I was becoming very fearful of how this habit might evolve with adolescence. It started as nail-biting and picking at any little blemish relentlessly, sometimes making them sore and infected.  Then it was pulling out eyebrows and eyelashes.  And then came the “Hair Pulling”. At times there would be large bald areas that appeared overnight. Other times they were smaller and easier to conceal. But each time regardless of the size it PAINED me to the very core of my being.  To think, this beautiful child was doing this to themself, seemingly unintentionally. Then having to watch this child deal with the consequences and reactions of others because it was so visible to see and question.  School aged children are brutally honest. Not to mention dealing with trying to hide it, and the shame and guilt of doing it.  This was devastating to say the least.

I tried everything in my power to help…We sought counselling, doctor visits, worry stones, games and other ideas to busy these nervous little hands and focus the thoughts of this young person.  And NOTHING worked! One day out of pure desperation I googled hypnosis for breaking habits.  Then looked for hypnotherapist in my area. I chose Elizabeth because of her background in childhood education and felt she would be a good fit. Oh My Goodness! Was I right??!! We were both very nervous and hopeful at the thought that this just might work!  Upon our first visit the pulling STOPPED! We still followed up with a 2nd and 3rd visit just to reinforce the success. As of now there has been No More Pulling! The hair is growing back full and beautiful. But Best of All, is seeing the sense of pride and self-confidence back in this Beautiful Child…Elizabeth, Thank you so much! [I am] So Thankful.”

 Hypnobirthing

 “Amazing and completely effective work!!! Wow. Mind blowing really. The birth using hypnotherapy I never felt so empowered to my own experience. Such crucial tools to help the mind help relax the body as much as it can so it can do what it’s naturally supposed to do. Have a baby in such sweet harmony of my own experience that I created for me & her to experience, it makes sense why this hypnotherapy helped me create love & confidence for her to come into this world! I had a water birth with the hypno[birthing] in a room at Mad River Hospital & thoroughly loved every minute using the technique. So easy and reassuring that I was in charge of my delivery this time. My first baby I did not know about hypnobirthing but my 2nd baby was [a] hypno birth & worth every minute. WOW!!! I highly recommend.”

Nail Biting

“I was a nail biter all my life and was always embarrassed by the bad habit. I tried a number of ways to try to stop and nothing worked. I had been to Hypnosis for Health for other issues and had great success so I decided to try hypnosis for nail biting. It worked and I am delighted. Elizabeth also gives you some very useful tools to re-enforce your success. I have recommended Hypnosis for Health to several of my friends and they too have been very happy with the results. Thanks Elizabeth.”

Smoking/Chewing Tobacco

“I just wanted to write this testimonial because after seeing Elizabeth Connors-Keith my life has changed tremendously!! Through hypnosis I was finally able to put tobacco down and not pick it back up again. It’s been almost two years!! I have to be honest that prior to seeing her I had my doubts about whether or not hypnosis really works. I wasn’t sure that it would work for me but I was at a point of being willing to try anything to quit smoking. I had been struggling with smoking for years. I first started in high school almost 20 years ago. For a few years prior to quitting I was being tortured by my addiction. I was in a fight daily on wanting to not smoke but finding myself smoking anyways. Come to find out that each day I was caught in a fight between my conscious and subconscious mind. With Elizabeth’s help I was able to tap into my subconscious. The part of my mind that was so resistant to quitting. It was an amazing experience! Finally for the first time ever, that voice that was always screaming at me whenever I would run out of tobacco was subdued. It was not completely gone but it wasn’t so glaring either. I met with Elizabeth three times over the course of three weeks. She is absolutely fabulous and I highly recommend her services to anyone struggling with such issues. I actually ended up referring my boyfriend to her also and he has had great success. I am so thrilled to say that we haven’t smoked since seeing her. I’m forever grateful for the experience and the result. It’s changed my world forever. Thank you Elizabeth.”

“I was skeptical that this would work….It’s been 15 months since I quit smoking and I feel great. This has been the easiest thing I’ve ever done. 1 hour and no more cigarettes. I recommend this method to anyone who wishes to quit smoking.” 

                                                                            Lois Waters          Eureka, CA 

“Elizabeth:    

    I cannot thank you enough for transforming me into a non-smoker after just one session with you. I knew nothing about hypnosis and was somewhat skeptical that it could help me quit, even upon leaving your office. Wow, the experience was so subtle, yet it made profound changes in my habits and attitude about smoking. After 25 years of smoking several cigarettes nearly every day, I’m free!    

    The last time I smoked was the morning before I had hypnotherapy by you, nearly a year ago. I was transformed from a self-loathing closet smoker into a nonsmoker seamlessly and with little effort on my part. The fact that it was so easy and natural still amazes me. I have never once picked up a cigarette or thought of smoking one for more than a split-second, and only at the beginning. The first few days, my mind might remember cigarettes because my husband was smoking, but my mind quickly detoured and I never had to tell myself not to smoke.  Becoming a nonsmoker has completely changed my life. Thank you so much. Also, I did not gain any weight or feel deprived in any way. In fact, I started running more and longer, finishing my first half-marathon over the summer.”

  “I was a smokeless tobacco user for 20 years…It has been amazingly easy to give up the habit that controlled me for so many years. On previous attempts to quit I would get headaches, an upset stomach, and was very moody. After hypnosis, I experienced none of the physical or emotional side effects and have been ‘chew free’ for more than three years!  I highly recommend Hypnosis for Health to anyone who is serious about quitting.”

“Hypnosis got me to quit smoking and chewing [tobacco]. I thought there was no way I could quit; the nicotine gum, patches, pills, all that stuff is garbage and just makes you want to chew or smoke more. Hypnosis is the only way to go if you Really want to quit. Even after just one session, I didn’t even think about smoking or chewing. Hypnosis changed my life and it could change yours too.”

 “I didn’t realize that life would be so easy after hypnosis. The desire to pick up a cigarette and light one was gone. Both my boyfriend and I became non-smokers…We took a vacation immediately afterwards smoke free, for the first time in 20 years! The ability to walk by other smokers and not realize that I was ever a smoker is amazing to me. No desire, no panic attacks, just easy breathing and better smelling clothing! I am forever grateful, and forever smoke free! Thank you Elizabeth.”

This was easier than I ever thought it would be. I Love being smoke free, I Love all the money I’m saving, but most of all I Love the life that I’m saving (mine!) Thank you so much Elizabeth!! I am a non-smoker and will be for the rest of my life.”

  “I had been a closet smoker on and off for over 40 years. Every time I quit, the struggle to stay smoke-free never left me for long. I would eventually pick one up again when I spent the holidays with an old friend who still smokes, the same one who was with me when I bought my first pack at 17. The association was too strong for me to fight. After meeting with Elizabeth for one session, I have not smoked once. Best of all, I have spent 4 holidays with Kim and her husband (both smoke 2 packs a day) and I don’t even have the thought, let alone the urge, to join them! It was so easy, with none of the common side effects like weight gain or irritability. Thanks, Elizabeth, for giving me the tools to own my life again!”

 “I chewed tobacco for over 30 years and was tired of it, but powerless of its grip on me when I found Elizabeth Connors-Keith at Hypnosis for Health. We worked on it through hypnosis. It was not easy, I had a lot of work ahead of me. I think chewing tobacco is as or is more addictive than smoking. Along with four sessions of hypnosis I chewed nicotine gum. By being focused she helped me quit the habit; it has been four months now. I can’t thank her enough.”

Study Skills

 “When I first heard of hypnotherapy it was from television shows and I had never considered it as something I could practically apply to my own life. But, I had an exam to finalize two years of an extremely challenging class and one last chance to pass before having to change career paths. I decided that with one month to go, I would get some help…We set up three strategic sessions to achieve my goal. Each session built upon the last and after only one session I was getting comprehensive results. All the fear and anxiety I had, I was able to let go of. My study sessions became clear and focused, and I was absorbing the information with ease, as if it were my favorite thing to do. Distractions were no longer an issue and I was finally putting in the work in ways that I could not do prior to the therapy sessions. Prior to the hypnotherapy, my studies were ineffective because my mind would wander off to things other than what I would read and the fear of not passing prevented me from enjoying and comprehending what I was reading. After the sessions I was studying with every possible spare moment and finding myself reading up to four hours per night and enjoying the subject matter again! When test day came, I went through it without fear or anxiety... A few days later I got the news that … I had not only passed, I had aced the exam! Hypnotherapy is a very easy to understand, and practical way to get help with your goals. I would highly recommend it to anyone who has a goal and any uncertainty attached to it. Hypnotherapy will help you to bring out your best and achieve whatever it is you know deep down you want to accomplish.”

Weight Loss

“For as long as I can remember I’ve been a big eater and inordinately fond of sweets. I decided to see Elizabeth because my night time binge eating was out of control and I’d gained a disturbing amount of weight in the last few years. After a few sessions with Elizabeth my entire relationship with food has changed… cravings are gone, I’m eating in a more healthy way, no binging, no interest in sugar, sensible portion sizes, cooking at home vs. going to restaurants, and I’m exercising more as well. Voluntarily, and without any sense of deprivation. Thank you Elizabeth!                                                                                                                                       Anonymous         Arcata, CA

“Although I have only been on the hypnosis a short time it has been a positive and enlightening experience. I have learned to control the in-between meals and late night grazing. It reinforces good eating habits and the portion control issues I have had. I am amazed at how well this works and can already feel the results with my clothes becoming looser.”

“Having used hypnosis to stop smoking 24 years ago, I was confident in my own mind that hypnosis could be used to stop my gluttonous addiction to candy, donuts, cookies, cake and ice cream. I finally found a hypnotherapist in Northern California that I could trust, Elizabeth Connors-Keith. Our first session together was successful. I have not had any sweets or serious ‘cravings’ since that session. I am confident I will never have them again. Within a few weeks I lost an inch around my waist and a few bad looking pounds too. A week ago I needed a blood test for an exam, which yielded the lowest bad cholesterol reading I’ve had in 40 years. That is great news for this 69 yr. old. The medical assistant said I was the only senior she had met with this low cholesterol without being on medication! I owe this to hypnosis, as the only thing that changed in my life was ‘no more sweets’! Thank you Elizabeth.”

“I gained 20 lbs. ten years ago and had never been able to get the pounds off….Elizabeth gave me positive images and ‘tapes’ to put in my mind in place of the negative thoughts….I have succeeded in losing 15 of the 20 lbs…Hypnosis helped give me the tools to tackle the problem and get to know myself better on the way. It has been the only method that has helped me lose weight, because it is about the mind making loving decisions for your own well-being. Thank you Elizabeth.”
