What do people say after the experience?

  • This weekend was amazing! I feel so open. Not only did I personally grow and become aware of things that were blocking me, I feel like my confidence to hypnotize my future clients grew 100%! I lost my fear of not knowing what kind of advice to give or what can I do to help. I feel I've got so much to give now.
