The first reason that I choose Stephanie was her close proximity to my house.  Lucky me 🙂 For almost 20 years, I have suffered from a self-sabotaging binge eating disorder brought on by repressions of my true passions by my parents in my younger years.  Some people turn to drugs and alcohol to cope – I choose food.  I watched my weight fluctuate from 120 lbs. to 155 lbs. year after year after year.  In April of 2010 I hit the wall and literally had enough.  If a hypnotherapist could not help me – then I was at a loss.  I am a Personal Trainer and Pilates teacher.  It is imperative for me to be in peak physical condition – practice what you preach right…well carrying around 30 pounds of extra weight brought a whole range of other problems to the table.  The one that effective my success in life – depression.  Major bouts of depression and self-loathing, which turned into more binge eating episodes.  I spent two months with Steph and I am a new woman.  My body fat is melting away, binge eating is a thing of the past, I have a feeling of renewed self-confidence, I feel sexy, alive and completely and totally in love with life.  My boyfriend is loving my new body and now I can truly help my clients get the body that they have always dreamed of.  Stephanie is not only a remarkable woman, honest, kind and caring but she is a genius at what she does. She gives you tools and education your need to help yourself out of the damaging behavior that is ruining your life.  She gives you CD’s to listen to at home – if you do one thing…. LISTEN to your CD’s twice a day!!!!!  It works.  If you are serious about turning your life around, do five sessions with Stephanie and you will be amazed.

When it comes to “stuff” like this, I often tell people I’m like a dog: there’s no placebo effect, it either works or it doesn’t.

Well, I can say unequivocally, it worked. Stephanie is a true healer, one of the most gifted, caring and intuitive people I’ve ever encountered. The results speak for themselves: two years ago, I lost 25 pounds and this year lost my addiction to nicotine, both with her guidance and support.

Don’t get me wrong. Going to Stephanie is not like taking a pill and then – POOF! – you’re healed. It’s still (very) hard work. But there’s a framework to it, a structure, a support system that seems to go all the way down to your cells. Hard to explain but she comforts, inspires and transforms your thinking in a way that causes you to stay conscious when you make your choices. As a result, you consistently make better ones.

And also, Stephanie is not some airy-fairy type – she’s tough, honest, and disarmingly direct when she has to be. She sees the truth, and tells you exactly what you need to know in the moment you need to know it.

Since leaving LA, I’ve had a few setbacks but every time it happens I go straight to one of Stephanie’s tapes and quickly get back on track again.

I can’t recommend anyone more highly. There is no doubt in my mind that if you go to Stephanie, your life will change for the better.

I was privileged to have some guidance and hypnosis with Stephanie a few years ago through Positive Changes, a weight loss program. She was the best hypnotist they had, and an amazingly intuitive and super intelligent person. Her IQ is probably about 160! Wish I could have seen her every time. I did lose weight, and kept it off for years, but I am thinking of going back to Stephanie again because I may need some new impetus, as I am getting more sedentary. Stephanie will gently challenge you, and also empower you. Highly recommended.

I started seeing Stephanie for help with body image issues and unexplainable depression. As someone who has gone through 15+ years of cognitive therapy with little progress, I needed to try something new and had also developed a growing interest in past life regression. When I saw that Stephanie had trained with Dr. Brian Weiss, I knew she was the one I wanted to see, but I would’ve never known how vital she would be for me. After only three sessions with her, my entire body, mind, and life has begun to change in ways I once only hoped for. She not only ushers you into your own spirituality and experience of your soul, but she gives you tangible, no-nonsense advice and tools to implement from goal setting to personalized meditations on CD.

She is not only a skilled and trustworthy practitioner, she is a bright light, perpetually optimistic, and one of the funniest, most endearing women I have ever met. As I write this I am already ten pounds lighter, love my body and life more than ever, and have found amazing peace and confidence. My career as an actress and writer has been revived overnight and opportunities have been effortlessly appearing. It seems magical, but is actually only the result of the small, daily changes I have made as of result of Stephanie’s coaching and encouragement. She gives you back the control of your life that you really never lost and I cannot recommend or speak highly enough of her. Go now!

I can’t begin to describe how grateful I am to have found Stephanie. Having battled with Bulimia for over 15 years, she is the only one who helped me break free from my binge eating and destructive behavior. A true angel who came in my path when I had reached my lowest. Stephanie worked with me on a conscious and subconscious level, which made a world of difference. I still listen to the cd’s made when I was under hypnosis daily to reprogram my subconscious (which I truly believe is key to any long lasting changes) in combination with the set of tools she gave me to use at a conscious level when the dysfunction creeps up. Stephanie is truly out to help. She teaches you to how help yourself and within a few sessions you have enough get out there and fight for yourself on your own. NO DEPENDENCY is created. Opposite.

She is my little Savior although don’t call her that, she’ll reject it by saying YOU saved yourself 🙂
God Bless Her.

I had the pleasure of working with Stephanie and I am forever grateful for my experience!  She has helped me with my weight and body image issues, which I have been struggling with for the past 19 years!  She has also lead me in the right direction after 16 years of doctors poking, stabbing, prodding, testing and never diagnosing me with whatever mystery illness I have and I have felt the healthiest and best I have ever felt for as long as I can remember!  She is an absolute angel and I cannot thank her enough for the wonderful work that she has done for me.

More importantly, the CDs that she has made especially for me are integral to the life-changing transformation that Stephanie has created in my life.  They have given me the strength to face the immense challenges that I am struggling with currently.  Without Stephanie’s help, kind words and guidance, I would just be a heap of immovable, emotional turmoil and not have the strength to carry on.  Stephanie and her work has given me the hope, strength and impetus to succeed and have a complete turn around in positive thinking and believing.

The past life regressions with Stephanie have opened my eyes to seeing everything that is happening in my life from a completely different perspective.  This is the key in trying to make sense of my life’s struggles.  It allows you to think outside of the box that you are stuck in and allows you and your mind a chance to heal and a way out.

If you are struggling with anything, LET STEPHANIE HELP YOU!!!!!!  She is amazing and does fantastic work!  I come from a social services background and I was skeptical at first too but I gave it a shot and am extremely happy with the results!

It is my greatest belief that finding Stephanie has not only saved my life, but also given me a second chance at it. After living with severe bulimia for 10 years and being unable to cope with the depression that inevitably follows I took to Yelp for an answer, and will forever be grateful that it gave me Stephanie!

I was not interested in solving my problems with any of today’s conventional drugs and didn’t feel I needed to be educated on proper nutrition (after-all I was obsessed with food!), but rather I needed someone to give me all of the tools necessary to control this self mutilating habit and find joy in a life that I felt was becoming a huge disappointment.
It took less than 24 hours for me to realized I had just made the greatest decision of my life when at 2pm on a Sunday (I had e-mailed her at 7pm the day before) Stephanie responded to my inquiry! She spent almost an hour on the phone with me explaining what she did and asking about what I was looking for. I could not believe that she would take so much time out of her personal life for someone she had never met.

As of today I have had 5 sessions with Stephanie and over a 2 month period I found a new job, new home, new interests and a developed a genuine excitement about every day that I’m lucky enough to experience. Stephanie is vibrant, knowledgeable, fun and most importantly the best at what she does. I feel that she is extremely present at every session we have and takes a genuine interest in my recovery, which has been extremely motivating for me.

I could go on and on about how wonderful I think she is, but I think I’ve made my case. So I’ll sum things up by saying that I have not purged since the day she called me (and asked me so kindly to never do it again) and cannot begin to describe the sense of pride this gives me. If you’re tired of the life you’re living and ready to take responsibility for it, do yourself this favor and go see Stephanie.

I will be forever indebted to Stephanie for her help in losing weight and regaining my confidence lost beneath that excess baggage. Stephanie is an intensely sensitive and attuned therapist. Sessions are not the usual 50-minute hello-goodbye, and the take-home recordings powerfully reinforce of the session work.

I’m the mother of three beautiful girls, I run a huge, busy landscaping business, and did I mention I’m also a wife? I don’t have time to breathe, let alone diet. But Stephanie helped me shed thirty pounds, and let go of the dowdy, big-butt “mom me,” that I had just assumed would be “me” forever. I’m now a sizzling size 6, and Stephanie encourages me to claim my power, sass, and sexiness. My husband thanks her daily, and to my daughters, I’m an inspiration. To myself, I feel so proud of what I’ve accomplished. Some people don’t recognize the new improved me! And even though challenges arise on a daily basis, I don’t head to for sugary, fatty foods. I head for my earphones and listen to one of her amazing CDs – they calm me down, and remind me “that everything is okay this fifteen seconds, and I can handle whatever happens in a calm sensible way.” I surprise myself sometimes with how calm I stay no matter what emergency arises. And I know it’s from what I’ve learned in the past two years! Thank you, Stephanie

I didn’t believe that hypnosis could help me lose weight and get my mojo back — but I was so wrong!!!  I’ve lost 30 pounds of unwanted fat… and gained total confidence in myself!  Stephanie’s way of working amazed me….  I would have never thought I could do it, but she encouraged me to overcome all the negativity stored in my brain!  Yeah, Stephanie!

I’m a project manager and a registered nurse, which means I know computers and I understand body mechanics.  I originally came to see Stephanie when I had a hugely stressful corporate job – I was head of IT at a dysfunctional company.  I knew I needed help to take off the 40 pounds, because I simply wasn’t able to take it off by myself.  Sure, I’d go on a diet and maybe lose 20 pounds, but I’d always gain it back again.  I was desperate, and I was ready to try anything… even hypnosis.  But, once Stephanie explained exactly what hypnosis was, (no swinging watches!) I had a new understanding of how my brain “was just badly programmed.”  And she taught me how to “fix the bad programming” and essentially delete the corrupted files that were making me reach for a donut when I got stressed!  Amazing!  I’ve lost all my weight now, (it didn’t happen overnight) and I now weigh 120 pounds.  What’s really great is that I know I’ll never gain it back, because I never dieted.  I simply changed my behaviors, and craved healthy foods that fed my brain! I’ve continue to see Stephanie, because besides helping me create my new body, she’s been invaluable in my helping me create my own new business!  I listen to her “Confidence” CD, and “Creating Abundance” CD almost daily.  I recommend her highly!

I am truly impressed with Stephanie Riseley’s hypnotherapy skills.  I had tried reprogramming my mind on my own concerning dietary habits, but found I needed expert coaching.  I was always one of those skinny people who never had to worry about what I ate.  The pounds slowly crept on in my 30s, but I could shed them easily with a month or two of dieting.  But after age 50, I gave up on this pattern and continued to eat what I wanted, not realizing how much I consumed was out of stress, depression, worry, and just plain acceptance of the aging process.  I figured my body had changed for good, or the svelte “me” had moved and not left a forwarding address. Maybe I was “supposed” to look a little pleasingly plump after 50.  As I had always been thin, I did not really “see” the excess 40 pounds in the mirror.  I am the reverse of the proverbial fat person who can’t see the thin one inside, even when he slims down physically.  But I got tired of the excess baggage and the attendant health problems that were brewing, and with the help of Ms. Riseley’s program, I am losing those unnecessary hunger pangs all day, and better able to image myself at the slender weight I deserve to be.  The reinforcement I get from her coaching is putting me on a new road; no going back to old ways of thinking about my body.  I CAN have a beautiful body in the second half of life.  The pounds are already pouring off.  I love the subtle coaching of her CDs; it is noncritical and highly supportive.  You can only win here!

I was at the end of all hope about losing the 50 pounds that was affecting my health, and making feel old.  I decided I would try ‘one last thing’ – hypnosis.  Stephanie had helped a sound guy I know lose 40 pounds —  I’m a cameraman — so I thought I’d give her a try, too.  Her sessions and hypnosis CDs were amazing, and helped me lose the 50 pounds, but she did more for me than just that.

I also had an annoying habit — I chewed my knuckle, and had done it since I was 11.  I had tried shrinks and psychotherapists.  Nothing helped.  Everyone told me it was a way I used to cope with stress.  O.K., fine.  But no one helped me stop. Once I asked Stephanie to help, however, that habit was history.  Done, and I’ve never chewed it again.  Thank you, Stephanie

May 26, 2008 – I started with Stephanie four months ago with a goal to loose 40 pounds. To date I have lost 23 pounds and I’m very happy with my progress thus far. The importance of this testimony is not that I lost weight; it’s that I gained a wonderful coach, counselor, and mentor in Stephanie Riseley.
Some of the tools that I was given by Stephanie to loose the weight included tailor-made hypnosis CD’s that reinforced positive habits such as awareness eating; having access to emergency brain food with me at all times; visualization of reaching my goal; and drinking 8-10 glasses of water daily. The CD’s would program my mind to be aware of the foods that I ate; to only eat while eating; and to listen for my body’s response system for fullness.

Although losing the weight was initially my goal, Stephanie has helped me tremendously with a debilitating autoimmune disorder. My tailor-made CD’s also included tools to manage pain and deal with symptoms; how to manage relationships so that my focus could be to heal my body; and how to control my thoughts and maintain a positive attitude.
In addition, I thank you Stephanie for all that you do to help heal through recommended readings, tips for healthy eating, and suggested exercise.

I’m so grateful to have found Stephanie Riseley because I thought I’d never lose this weight, and now I know I will lose all of it.  It feels so easy and effortless — almost automatic, because I make choices all day long that “are in line with my intention.”  It’s the subliminal suggestions that she puts on the CDs she makes that have helped me, and I can almost feel it working every time I listen to one of my CDs.   What’s even more amazing to me is that my inner-monologue has changed, and because of that I feel more confident, calmer and happier.  Getting down to the subconscious mind and learning exactly how to reprogram it works wonders.  I have no doubt that I will succeed at whatever I put my mind to now.

Stephanie Risely is an outstanding hypnotist and counselor. I started out as a weight loss client and even though I am at my goal weight (yea!) I will continue to stay connected with her. It’s so important for us to actively engage and repurpose our thinking patterns so we can function more fully in any area of life. She is a wonderful combination of insightful, spiritual and down to earth, practical. Stephanie will help you get your own mind on board with what you want to accomplish in life!  BTW – Her recent book titled “From Both Sides” is amazing.

Julie L. – 5 Star Review on Yelp

At a time in my life when nothing was making sense, I approached Stephanie to help clarify for me some of the reasons certain people were put in my life, and what I could do to control what was seemingly so out-of-hand.  Through her gentle, personal and HIGHLY EFFECTIVE hypnotherapy techniques, I realized the powers I have are deeper and more available to me than I had realized.

She worked diligently to focus my thoughts on my body, centering me and allowing my soul to begin to heal.  The focus on my core was also a fantastic way for me to lose those stubborn last 10 pounds while I shed the weight of the world off my shoulders.  Stephanie provided SPECIFIC, USEABLE, RELIABLE ANSWERS to weight loss, personal power, and personal strength issues.

I highly recommend her services and welcome any questions you have.

I just started seeing Stephanie recently for weight loss and she is wonderful. I’ve been a compulsive overeater since I was a child and suffer from food addiction. Stephanie is very straightforward, honest and tells you exactly what you need to do to help yourself. The CD’s she makes are a huge help in between sessions and she has a wealth of knowledge to offer.

I’m currently trying to learn how to love myself for who I am right now and although it’s very hard, Stephanie is a wonderful guide for me through this tough process. I’ve already begun to notice changes in my thoughts, behavior and overall attitude.

Please don’t believe the bad review that’s currently posted on this page. It’s full of lies. Let’s see if Yelp decides to leave this review on her page, or if they “filter” it out so it doesn’t count.

All in all, Stephanie is absolutely wonderful and it would greatly benefit you to invest in her sessions.

Trini – 5 Star Review on Yelp

I was referred to Stephanie through a mutual friend in February of this year. When I first spoke with Stephanie on the phone, it was like speaking to an understanding, compassionate confidante.

I gave her a brief rundown of what was happening to me.

For 16 years, I lived with the diagnosis of severe, recurring depression, debilitating anxiety attacks, PTSD, OCD and agoraphobia. My nervous breakdown and two relapses were a result of current traumas happening as an adult and a memory of a childhood trauma that would only come to surface in “clips”. Every time a new clip surfaced, it sent me back to a relapse of darkness, hopelessness, infinite sadness and total withdrawal of the people, places and things I loved most. Functioning was out of the question! For 16 years I tried all kinds of traditional clinical psychology, psychiatry, two hospitalizations (panic attacks were off the charts and I had to be monitored for my heart), not to mention the long list of medications that would work for a while only to fail later on. I felt like a walking chemistry experiment.

Deep down, I knew that I needed to find someone to help me uncover that horror I experienced as a four year old to truly become healed. That person was Stephanie! The moment we met for my first session, I knew in my gut, that I made the right choice.

Stephanie took the time to explain what was happening to me physiologically so I could understand the “what and why”. My first two sessions involved setting goals for myself and sharing with her the traumas the sent me on this path. She then did two meditation exercises, first was goal setting and the second was finding my inner child. (She then sent these meditations to me via email as MP3 files so that I would listen to them each day as reinforcements.)

The third visit was the BIG regression hypnosis to recover all of the missing pieces of the horrible trauma I experienced as a little girl. Stephanie was there to remind me to be an observer which makes it easier to revisit. Through this technique, I was able to face it, own it and free myself.

The fourth and fifth visits were about understanding who I was through past life hypnosis and the lessons learned from those lives.

As a result of Stephanie’s work, I am now learning how to love and celebrate the person that is me and in the “now”. I wake up every morning knowing this will only happen when I “show up for myself”. I am doing the work and seeing the results each and every day! Thank you, Stephanie! These two words cannot even begin to cover the gratitude I feel for the love, kindness, compassion, coaching and encouragement I am still receiving each and every day!

I was looking for some help with anxiety. I saw psychotherapists until they recommended I see a psychiatrist. I saw several of them. The drugs prescribed did not help with the anxiety. Many of them had unwanted side effects. It is then I decided to try hypnotherapy. I talked with a few hypnotherapists and Stephanie was the most personable and the one who seemed to have a plan for the anxiety.
I wish I would have tried Stephanie first. She made the biggest difference in dealing with the anxiety.  I also learned the most from her about me, my past, and where I need to be headed. I continue to listen to the recordings of our sessions, which really help me. I know this will be a journey, but it all got started thanks to Stephanie. Thanks for the education, the insight, and for putting my on the path to a better life.

I had heard a hypnotherapist as a guest on a popular radio program at a time when I was feeling particularly anxious and low.  I tend to be skeptical about these things, but after doing some research, I felt comfortable with hypnotherapy’s reported efficacy to give it a try.  I scoured yelp and there were several local hypnotherapists with good reviews, but for some reason I was drawn to contact Stephanie.  I’m glad I did.  The experience has been truly transformative for me.  My anxiety has diminished considerably.  I am better able to come into a state of presence when negative thoughts or challenging feelings arise.  A “stress rash” on my hand has disappeared completely.  Stephanie is also very intelligent and funny, and she has created a nurturing and peaceful environment where it is easy to feel relaxed and open.  The process of growth is never-ending, but Stephanie is an excellent guide and helped me get on a new and positive path.

I should have written this review earlier. It’s been over a year since my last in-person session with Stephanie and I really can’t find the words to tell you how much my life has changed since my sessions with her. I found my confidence, took control, reduced the anxiety that was crippling me thanks to her.

I’m sorry I waited so long to share this.

Stephanie is incredible and she’s the real deal. I read every review I could find about her before deciding to seek her help. (Yelp used to have a lot more positive reviews for Stephanie on this page but I don’t know what happened to them.)  I found myself firmly in the believer’s camp, and better for it, after my sessions with her.

Stephanie is warm, genuine (but firm), insightful and delightfully funny. In ways I never expected, she guided me through the briar patch that my life had become and gave me the tools to move forward on my own.

Even though I don’t see her any more professionally (I moved out of state), I stay in touch and know I always will. If you know you’re in need of someone who can help you change and take control of your life, I couldn’t recommend anyone better.

I went to Stephanie with acute anxiety because of a series of incidents.  I worked with Stephanie through the five sessions.  I found her to be wonderfully kind and quirky (in a good way).  She’s incredibly well read (this matters to me as I’m a university professor) and knowledgeable.  She was able to get to the root of my anxiety AND to give me really good techniques for managing anxieties that might emerge in the future.  I am happier and emotionally healthier.  I was so pleased with Stephanie that I’m now planning to work with her to develop my book project and a business project.

Josie G. – 5 Star Review on Yelp

I highly recommend Stephanie – I didn’t know where to turn to help me with my anxiety, which was creating depression and a chronic health issue.  I had been suffering for over 10 years and had tried everything – psychologists, life coaches, medication, books, etc. As a last ditch effort I decided to try hypnotherapy when a friend recommended it to me.  I was tired about discussing the reasons why I was experiencing anxiety/depression but needed tools to help me change.

I was wary and not sure what I would experience, because I am pretty grounded and get turned off when things are too ‘new age-y’.  With an open mind I went and I am so glad I did.  Stephanie has helped me reframe and change many of the negative thought patterns that were keeping me from feeling better.  She has helped me work with many issues – from working through my anxiety, quitting smoking, losing weight, and my relationships.  She is so positive and such a cheerleader and I look forward to seeing her every week.  I am lucky to have her on my “team”.  I found her on Yelp and am so glad I did.

Bar Exam Anxiety Gone!!!

I was panicked about taking the Bar exam for the 3rd time.  I’d failed before and knew I couldn’t do it again.  I contacted Stephanie and she explained how my brain had gotten badly programed (because of the trauma of failing), and then she explained how she could help me to reprogram what was essentially a “bad brain program.”  After asking if I understood everything, and asking me some questions, she then took what she’d said, and made an amazing CD for me to listen to.  I’ve seen her twice, and she’s saved my sanity!!  I feel confident that I will now sail through the Bar Exam and succeed in my goal of helping people solve legal problems!

Working with Stephanie has been wonderful. I sought her help in dealing with work-related anxiety, and after four sessions, I feel much lighter and laid back in life in general–especially when it comes to running my business. Through intuitive guidance and applicable advice, she helped me rewire my thoughts from panic to peace. Things feel a lot more manageable now, which is huge. As a person, she’s hilarious, genuine and relatable. I can’t recommend her enough!

Marisol R. – 5 Star Review on Yelp

I have not seen Stephanie in two years.  Yes, I was a client and enjoyed my time with Stephanie. Two years later, I feel that my anxiety is manageable. I feared driving in Los Angeles, or any unknown area. I now have driven alone in many different cities.  Previously, I avoided driving in any unfamiliar area out of fear of getting lost or in an accident. Recently, I was visiting California and drove by myself to a salon 45 minutes away from my hotel, and loved the drive. Don’t get me wrong, occasionally I still get scared of driving. For instance, I hate driving in Miami for good reason the people drive insanely there.  If I had to drive, I know I would be capable. However, before I would of completely resisted ever driving there.

Another accomplishment I achieved because of Stephanie’s support and encouragement is going back to school. Stephanie really helped me believe in myself.  I doubted that I would excel in school. To my surprise, I am a wonderful student. This fall, I am excited to be going to school as a full time student. I developed a love and passion for education and learning.

Stephanie the eternal optimist! She’s incredibly smart, funny, and thoughtful and one of the most honest people I’ve ever met. I discovered her because I am a huge fan of Brian Weiss, M.D., and his books. Since reading them and struggling with anxiety for years I thought I’d do some research to see if I could find a hypnotherapist to help me since I was in an extremely rough patch in my life. Lo and behold I found Stephanie who was located a few minutes away and had trained directly with Brian Weiss. Divine intervention! I purchased 5 sessions with back in November 2010. She helped me so much with my anxiety through hypnotherapy.

I still listen to her personalized CDs that she created for me to calm myself, to feel positive and aware, as well as to help me go to sleep. As she said, there’s no instant, magic fix. You have to put in the real work yourself but I couldn’t have done it without her help.

I also did two past life regressions that were amazing and helped me realize a major source of my anxiety. These negative reviews on here about her a joke. She was my saving grace. Two years later I’m happy, healthy and loved!

Pepper B. – 5 Star Review on Yelp

I came to Stephanie completely broken. My world crashing down around me in every aspect of my life (work, death of a loved one, family issues, financial issues, loss of my home, marital problems, health problems) all at the same time. Stephanie immediately told me in her special way that, yes I was screwed, but there was a way out of my distress. No, she didn’t magically make all my problems disappear, but she did give me the valuable tools, the understanding and the attitude adjustment I needed to control the way I reacted to the chaos. Right after my first session and a week of listening to the CD she recorded of my session, I was able to calm myself down and not let my problems perpetuate my even more stress. Basically she flipped my lid in one session. With my new tools I was able to find the beauty in my life and the many fortunes and blessings I did still have. Believe me the chaos is still there, but I don’t let it get to me.

Now, while I systematically and calmly attack each problem, I now have the energy and strength to work with Stephanie on actual personal goals. We are currently, working to tap into my higher self and understanding my true purpose in this lifetime. I am also learning how to be a better person, love, understand, forgive and not be judgmental towards others. I feel that my sessions with Stephanie were life changing. I am so glad I found her.

I have waited to write this review because I wanted to do it as soon as I could honestly see a steady and obvious shift in my life. So that it could help someone else out there who is struggling with issues similar to mine. I want my review to be as honest and as authentic and real as it could possibly be. Sorry if it’s long, but if there’s anyone out there like me, I know you would appreciate a thorough review if you are going to dish out money, time and trust to a complete stranger!

I have been struggling with relationship issues all my life. I definitely seemed to be jinxed in my love life dept. Then my self esteem seemed to hit rock bottom to where I didn’t even have a good relationship with myself. I didn’t like looking in the mirror at myself anymore. So I became a workaholic and a social hermit. Spending most of my 30’s away from social situations or dating because I was afraid to be hurt again. To fail. To self sabotage. So avoidance was my answer. But what kind of life is that? I watched my family and friends try and coax me to come out of my shell. They all tell me that I’m a beautiful, funny, smart, healthy woman who deserves love. A woman that should be out living life fully, not just letting life shuffle me around aimlessly. I was finally fed up. So I began reading endlessly. I think I own every self help book on audible and in paperback. Seriously!

I was just hungry for an answer. I went to counselors, therapists, psychiatrists who gave me antidepressants and xanex. All of which just numbed me. I knew I didn’t need drugs to help me. I needed tools to help myself! So I ditched the meds and continued my search. I have been interested in different types of therapy since traditional talk therapy never seemed to fully help me. I tried NLP and Tapping, but still did not click with me. Then I started reading about hypnosis and past life regression. I read that this has been useful for many to fully accept exactly themselves, to feel confident about life choices and make peace with the past. If I can love myself completely I will attract that love of someone else. But first, I needed to figure out what I was sending out into the universe and why. Why was I attracting abusive narcissists? And what are the lessons I’m here to learn? I kept coming across books by Michael Newton. Journey of Souls and Memories of the Afterlife. These stories of actual patients of Dr. Newton’s resonated with me. That’s it! I wanted to do a past life regression!

I hunted all over the internet for someone trained in past life regression in my area. I was immediately attracted to Stephanie’s page. I read every word on her website to make sure I wouldn’t be wasting my time (I live in Laguna Beach and LA traffic is the worst!) and of course the money. I have lost in the past on other therapists who just make you talk and relive your past traumas. Sending you on your way after an hour in tears with nothing to do until the next session except ponder your sorrows!

Stephanie called me back to get a feeling of what I was looking to achieve with her help, and to make it clear she’s not a typical therapist. That I would have to commit to seeing her 5 times but I could space them out however my budget and time would allow. I liked her upfront approach. No gimmicks or shifty sales type crap. Just honest and to the point.

I looked forward to our first appointment like Christmas was coming and I was a 7 year old hoping to get my first bike from Santa Clause!

I just knew in my heart that she would be the one to help me. And boy was I right!!!! When I met Stephanie, I thought she reminded me of a glamorous actress from the silent film era. She just has this elegance about her. She’s very vibrant, funny, enthusiastic, warm, wise and has this energy of light surrounding her. It’s hard to explain, but you just know she is someone special as soon as you shake her hand and she smiles at you.

The first session she listens to you about what you are stressing out about and want to work on. She gave me a sticky note, like as if a prescription, of 6 books to read specifically to help me with my unique issues. Then we get right into some hypnotherapy. She records this onto an mp3 for you to take home and listen to twice a day. One word of advice? Do it. Do all the homework! Even when you think it’s silly. It actually does change your brain. I lost weight in the weeks that followed without feeling like I was trying. I started looking in the mirror with confidence instead of focusing on my flaws! It really surprised me how this worked so positively after a few weeks. The sessions that followed were just sheer amazement. I thought reading about past life regression therapy would prepare me. It doesn’t. This is an investment into yourself that to me is priceless. I am so thankful I found Stephanie. I’m a new improved person because of her. It has only been a few months, but I will do an update when I meet my soul mate! Good luck on your journey!

Stephanie has absolutely changed my life.  She taught and continues to teach me how to flip my thoughts to the positive and has encouraged me to make bold, strong choices.  My daily routine is now productive and proactive and wonderful.  Since seeing her I have improved my relationship with myself, my partner, my family and my career.  She is constantly suggesting books, classes and people I should connect with.  She has been a life coach, motivator and complete life changer for me.  I highly suggest Stephanie for anyone who is looking to improve themselves, their lives and feel better in general.

When I came to Stephanie, I was in a dark place and lost beyond belief. I had hit my rock bottom, but luckily I stumbled across her website after searching the Internet about Past Life Regressions due to bizarre visions and dreams I was having throughout my days (daydreaming) and nights while asleep. I had found Brian Weiss through Doreen Virtue’s blog and then went onto find Stephanie who I learned was trained and taught how to do past life regressions from Brian Weiss himself! So, I called ASAP and Stephanie was a sweetheart and found a way to pencil me in for our first two hour session out of five.

Let me just say, when the day came that I was about to be going to my first past life regression sequence (I have had hypnotherapy before but never a regression) and I wasn’t sure at all on what to expect. But, when I arrived and filled out all of my necessary paper work explaining why I am here, Stephanie immediately created a warm, safe, and comfortable environment for me to just talk in and share my deepest and wildest thoughts and opinions about myself and life as a whole. That is what most sessions are, Stephanie working with you to create a customized plan on how to get out of whatever you might be in. Only two out of the five sessions are past-life regressions. However, Stephanie is so much more than just someone who does past life regressions, she is truly a healer. And the reason to why I gravitated towards her warm and loving persona is because I am a healer too! I know past-life regressions can sound silly and phony, and often you might even think you’re making it up but it truly is a humbling experience everyone should seek if they’re at any phase in their lives that they wish to know higher truth about. Because if there’s anything I have learned.. healing from our past is the best and most vital thing we can do to make our future’s free and clear of past hurt and negativity. Whatever your issue might be, Stephanie is so talented and gifted that she will help you resolve it, no matter the obstacles you’re facing.

Stephanie has been a true blessing in helping me find my path in life and starting me on my way to achieving my true goals. She helped me get over many aspects that were holding me back from being truly me and I will be forever grateful. It’s not easy but if you stick with it and listen to the CDs you will see results. Thanks Stephanie for all your care and support.

After several meetings with Stephanie I significantly feel the difference within. I arrived in confusion unable to complete the simplest of tasks due to an incredibly painful emotional event in my life. Stephanie helped me to regain my focus, reinforcing positive thoughts and energy. The recordings she makes during the session are a gift, I listen to them daily, they are my mantra and have helped me find my way in the times when I felt lost beyond all reason. The warrior within awakens.

Stephanie is a gift from the Universe.   When you are looking for a therapist of any kind, you need to find one that’s right for you.  Not everyone will mesh with so many different personalities in this world, but Stephanie is perfect for me.  The Universe sent her to me (or me to her depending on how you look at), and I’m more than willing to drive from Huntington Beach into the heart of LA for these sessions.  You also have to put effort forth into changing.  Stephanie is merely a guide providing keys to unlock your potential and free your mind.  However, you have to use the keys and you have to put in the work.  Only you can change you.  It’s not magic, and it’s not overnight success. If you are not ready to change no one can make you.  I am in the midst of a series of 5 sessions, and have already experienced a difference.  My husband passed away suddenly at the early age of 35 leaving me with so many questions and searching for myself and my new path in life.  With Stephanie’s guidance I know I am heading in the right direction and look forward to all the potential we are going to unleash!  Thank you, Stephanie!  Much love!!

It has been a year since I worked with Stephanie – I’ve carried the incredible tools that she revealed with me each day since then. I enjoyed 5 sessions with her – she is very clear about the process and about focusing in on what you aim to achieve in your treatments. She is absolutely a no-pressure therapist who only wants you to engage in what you desire. Frankly, she doesn’t want to work with people who don’t want to work on themselves – and why should she! There are beautiful mantras, lessons, and thinking patterns that she bestows through meditation and past life regression techniques – she is really practical and yet spiritual, so it gives you a calming sense that you’re in good hands (and not at the mercy of a manipulative “psychic” on the sunset strip…) You’ll be really pleased with your time with her, but be sure that you’re ready to commit to a life-changing experience. It sure is one!

I decided to go to Stephanie after reading her book, “Love From Both Sides” (which was a very fascinating book!). I just had my first session with Stephanie and I can honestly say that after just one session, I already feel better than I have felt in months! I also feel closer to regaining my personal power and am confident that with her guidance, I will emerge from my issues much stronger and smarter. I am glad she is the one helping me on this journey.

Stephanie is an amazing and resilient lady. We all need to know that or loved ones are always with us and help from the beyond. She is inspirational and truly gifted, and her sessions with her helped me more than any psychiatrist would. Finding out who I was in my past lives truly made me aware of why I am the way I am and gave me the strength to move on.

This is a very long overdue review for Stephanie Riseley! I contacted her for a series of sessions a few years ago during a difficult time of loss, death, and grieving. During this sad time, Stephanie was such a joy to talk with! I always left every single session feeling much better than when I had walked in. I shared some personal stories with her and she was always so lovely, completely non-judgmental, funny, and very caring.

At the time I felt like a crazy person, but Stephanie’s presence was delightful and made me feel like things were eventually going to be okay. She advised me to not make any big decisions for the next two years while my brain was still dealing with a lot of grief. Boy was she right! I almost got a tattoo during this time, but remembered her voice and decided to wait. Present-day: I’m tremendously relieved to be tattoo-free!

Stephanie explained what was going on with my brain during this tough period and offered simple solutions to help get me on a healthier track. I haven’t seen her for almost 4 years now, but the work I did with Stephanie all those years ago is even more present now than it was before.

The brain is a mysterious thing. It needs time to heal after a long period of stress. It takes time to build new awareness, cognition, and the ability to break down old patterns… patterns of thought and patterns of behavior.

Ever been to an amusement park where they hypnotize people into doing crazy things such as acting like a chicken in front of a live audience? Well. If that is your only perception of hypnotherapy, then you might be disappointed. Hypnotherapy affects everyone differently at different moments in their lives. When I worked with Stephanie, I was simply in a much more relaxed state and still very aware of my surroundings. Being in this state however, allowed the work to begin for my brain to create new neural pathways of thought. Your brain can’t change if it’s too busy spinning in circles!

Show up, listen to the recorded sessions, give it time, and you might be surprised where you find yourself years from now. Thank you so much, Stephanie! Your Love, advice, great wit, and good energy continue to help me even today. I am grateful.

Stephanie Riseley is not only a great human being but also an amazing therapist. I found Stephanie exactly at the moment when I needed her most in my life. Her kindness, compassion, connection and scientific knowledge helped me enormously in dealing with my stories from the past, understanding the meaning of my past and present life, leaving the traumas behind little by little and learning how to live and enjoy the present most, without worrying about the yesterday or the tomorrow. At that moment in time I had so many questions about myself. I didn’t know who I was anymore, what I wanted or in which direction to look. But I am so grateful to Stephanie for all her help, her efficient and effective techniques, for her insightful advices and her scientific and spiritual awareness. I am definitely recommending Stephanie for all those “lost souls”. She was my answer and my guide. And she will always be.

Pia De La Llata G. – 5 Star Review on Yelp

Stephanie has helped me find myself and life-purpose. When I called her in need of help, I felt lost, anxious, and overwhelmed. She helped me put my life into perspective and carry out my short-term goals in order to feel confident enough to reach my long-term ones. She soon became a friend and someone I could count on to make me smile. She has given me amazing advice and really helped me work on myself physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I finally feel enthusiastic and back on track again. She is very wise and has given me a lot of homework but always one step at a time, one moment at a time. I now have a much more positive outlook on life and becoming more fearless everyday!! Thanks Stephanie, I will always be grateful to have met you and to have another warrior goddess here on earth with me!!

I found Stephanie in very special way online and the moment I met her I had the feeling she is prefect guider for me now, all what happen after that was so amazing that it difficult to put in words, I felt very uncomfortable with my feeling about myself before I came and with my surrounding as well. Something to do with what we call Love, she helped me to open my self to love and live in the moment… its changed my life!! I always wanted to go back to age 16 were u don’t care about anything and live in the moment so its exact what I feel now after the 5 sessions. I totally live in the moment. Its takes kind of work but I am more engorge and self-loving to do so, and its very exciting way to live life. I extremely recommend hers 5 session treatments, as there some issues that stopping us form self loving that we don’t even know about… So 5 sessions will do cover it all… It’s helped me so much… I feel much stronger and self-loving and living in the moment… It’s like different life.

Much Love
Mary

Thank you, Stephanie!!! …That’s it in 1 big giant nutshell…

I have seen so many negative/parasitic people leave my life, self defeating behaviors disappear and positive changes happen since seeing Stephanie.

I went in for help with career and love and came out with my Celiac Disease almost completely w/o any flare-ups (they were consistently bad before even when I ate perfectly), my creativity back w/o trying, my career(s) blooming, energy to get out of bed and function and love banging down my door.

If I could rate her 12 stars I would because I received more than double of what I came in to see her for originally -or could have even imagined!!!

Happy healing to anyone who takes the next step with Stephanie! 🙂 You are in great hands on your journey. 🙂

Stephanie Riseley has changed my life in extremely positive ways.  Visiting her has been the best decision I’ve made in a long time (and if you visit her the best decision you will make).  I was hesitant at first but chose to take the leap and visit her.  After the first session and the first two weeks I noticed a difference mentally and physically.  The growth I’ve experienced since that first session alone was worth my time and energy.  I wholeheartedly recommend anyone who is thinking about visiting her to do so as soon as possible.  You will not regret the decision and will learn amazing things about yourself.

Thanks Stephanie!

Stephanie helped my daughter who is in college.  Moving to LA can be a bit overwhelming and she made the transition to LA and college better for her.  Stephanie combines a few approaches and helped my daughter turn to corner towards a more positive approach.  Thank you Stephanie for your compassion and deeper therapeutic approach.  I hope to see you myself when we come for a visit.

Caroline H. – 5 Star Review on Yelp

I found Stephanie to be very professional, smart, funny, outgoing and compassionate.  She has studied for so long and has gained immense knowledge that she is willing to pass on to help her clients.  No one is a stranger to her, she is an open book.  You can’t help but fall in love with her and then when you see what she can accomplish for you…you are hooked.  I don’t know what ignited my passion for life more:  meeting Stephanie or the work she helped me through (and I made the trip from Idaho).  You have nothing to lose by seeing and talking with her.  She is passionate and vibrant and you end up taking a little of that home with you!

Stephanie is Exactly What I Needed –
I first went to Stephanie in January 2010. I had lost my 27 year old son Brian in December 2008 (my only child). He truly is the love of my life. One of his very best friends had given me Brian Weiss’s book “Many Lives Many Masters”. After reading the book I was guided to Stephanie. I have gotten so much from every single visit with her. On top of the amazing grief counseling and the reconnection with my son, she has helped me with so many other issues. I have been able to forgive and truly love my mother, forgive love and understand myself, understand what I am doing with and truly understand and love my husband, move mountains at work, and much more. I thank God all the time in my prayers for bringing me to Stephanie. With her help I have transformed my life. I have an amazing lust for life again. I feel so blessed to have found her. We have done hypnosis cd’s, life regressions, past life regressions, and just talked about things. There is still more to do. With Stephanie’s guidance I feel the sky is the limit!

I love Stephanie!  I actually found her on yelp, but it appears as if a bug deleted all the reviews she had on here.
I first went to her during a time in my life when everything was changing and I just did not know how to handle them.  I was more interested in learning a skill from a professional on how to handle things in life in a more positive way.  I wanted to make lifestyle changes.  I did not just want someone to give me advice on how to handle this particular situation, but a professional to help me program my brain in a way that makes the quality of my life better.

I still listen to her CDS she recorded for me on my iPod almost daily.
Even though I do not get to see her often, she is someone who will always be in my phonebook so I go to her whenever I need too!  Thanks Stephanie for always greeting me with such a warm smile! With her you will never feel like she is just waiting for your session to end!

Stress reduction and improved mind and brain function have changed my life for the better through custom CDs made for me by Stephanie Riseley while I am in an hypnotic state.  Regularly listened to, they have improved my relationships both interpersonally and at work.  I have been able to quit all prescription medications as well as a 43 year marijuana habit.  My sense of well-being has so improved that I am more productive in my career and am happy and fulfilled.  My friends have reacted so positively to the “new me,” that I have been able to refer many new clients to Stephanie simply because they want “whatever it is that I have been doing that has me so glowing, happy and full of energy.”

Clearly I am just getting in the “5 stars for Stephanie” conga line, but after my visits with her I absolutely have to join the dance.  She is a truly gifted and insightful guide to one’s self, whose methods work quickly and quite magically. After our very first session I broke a habit I’d had for 20 years!
She can help you see the biggest picture of your life’s story, and also assist you in changing all the little patterns of thought that keep you acting out seemingly intransigent problems. Run, don’t walk.

Rosalind F. – 5 Star Review on Yelp

Thank heaven for Stephanie Riseley! I live in Las Vegas, so I can’t see her as often as I’d like, but she just pulled me back from the brink – yet again – with a CD she mailed to me. Email her, phone her – healing is there.
These are tough times. Make use of her tremendous ability and – as she says – learn to “Love Your Life.” Yes, it’s possible, no matter what.

Robert J. – 5 Star Review on Yelp

I’m a highly successful man of 62, and Stephanie was recommended to me because my partner of 30 years had died, and I became obsessed with a younger man, an actor, who was totally inappropriate, fairly uninteresting, but gorgeous.

Over the years I have seen every high priced psychiatrist in Beverly Hills.  (I’m sure I’ve paid for all of their children’s Harvard educations.)  But it wasn’t until Stephanie explained obsessive-compulsive disorder to me, how it related to my situation that I finally “got it.”  She made me understand how my brain was just “badly programmed,” and gave me the tools and techniques to change.  So now finally after all these years, I feel completely grounded in my own body.  Although she uses hypnosis – it’s not just hypnosis.

Any one can study hypnosis and hang out a shingle.  Stephanie’s amazing insight and guidance is what makes her work different.  Over the past five months, she has made me a series of different CDs to help me with specific problems.  Her “Work Success” CD changed a toxic work situation from destructive to productive in just a few days. The reason I write this today, is because last night, we did a Past Life Regression (we’ve done a few – all helpful, BTW, and fascinating to me), but the powerful “soul integration” of last’s night’s work stands out in stark relief.

I connected with a colorful and challenging Indian (as in India) life where I felt myself as young man of immense physical power, and I connected with a past love, a daughter, in that life.  Tears of joy flowed down my cheeks because the love was so true and intense. I could go on for pages over the experience, but the point Stephanie makes is: Disregard the specifics.  What is the emotional truth of the experience? Focus on that.” Everything that I experienced last night was emotionally valid, powerful, and immensely healing.  I know that this work will help me experience love again.

I now feel a deep and sacred love for my own body, a love for others, and for the all that is… I also feel brave enough to go forward and look for real love again.  Thank you, Stephanie.

At a time in my life when nothing was making sense, I approached Stephanie to help clarify for me some of the reasons certain people were put in my life, and what I could do to control what was seemingly so out-of-hand.  Through her gentle, personal and HIGHLY EFFECTIVE hypnotherapy techniques, I realized the powers I have are deeper and more available to me than I had realized.

She worked diligently to focus my thoughts on my body, centering me and allowing my soul to begin to heal.  The focus on my core was also a fantastic way for me to lose those stubborn last 10 pounds while I shed the weight of the world off my shoulders.  Stephanie provided SPECIFIC, USEABLE, RELIABLE ANSWERS to weight loss, personal power, and personal strength issues.

I highly recommend her services and welcome any questions you have.

Paige F. – 5 Star Review on Yelp

I sought Stephanie out pretty quickly after my move out to Los Angeles. As a woman in my early twenties beginning my new post-graduate life, I wanted to shed old habits of thinking that would get in the way of serving my purpose. If you don’t believe in purpose now, after a session with Stephanie, you will. Our meetings both affirmed and specified what my purpose is and how to follow the clues in my life to a happier, healthier, more successful me. As a person, Stephanie is quite brilliant. Funny, candid, extremely well educated in multiple fields and most importantly enlightened, she exudes confidence in her ability to illuminate yours. She sends you home with suggestions for articles, books, movies, authors, etc. and for some sessions, a meditation PERSONALIZED FOR YOU from the session on both CD/MP3. I would highly recommend her to anyone for any concern in his/her life.

April A. – 5 Star Review on Yelp

I came to Stephanie because I was having a lot of trouble making a difficult decision in my life. I was doing all the things I knew how to do to have a clear mind and open heart, but I was still very torn about what to do. A friend of mine recommended that I contact Stephanie to see if she could help… and help she did! My time with Stephanie changed my life, and I would highly recommend going to see her, regardless of what is happening in your life. Her impact on your life can be profound if you are open to changing habits and living a life full of love, awareness, and intention. She helped me to see more clearly the true path of my life and taught me how to access my “purpose” for times in the future when I might feel lost or bewildered again by a perplexing situation. I cannot say enough good things about my experience, but again, you have to be open to change, otherwise it would be a waste of time and energy.

Marjorie J. – 5 Star Review on Yelp

I highly recommend Stephanie to anyone who wishes to transform their life. Stephanie has been a blessing in my life. She has helped me to realize and understand the strength within myself. With her help I am overcoming some blocks that have kept me from moving forward in my life.  Stephanie does this all while making me feel relaxed and at ease. She is extremely easy to talk to.  After a few sessions with Stephanie I definitely see changes in my life. I am looking forward to more changes as we enter 2011. Thanks Stephanie!!!

I purchased a package of 5 sessions with Stephanie.  I was going through an earthquake in my life, and I wanted to better understand myself.
I thought that the best way to do that was to look at some of my past lives. I looked at 4.  They were pivotal to where I am today, and helping me understand where I was and what were my options were of where I was going.  Stephanie was a huge help with this.  She took me in at my first session as a confused and disheartened woman and after 8 months (I took my time); I turned myself around into having much more confidence about where I was going and what I needed to do in my life.  She’s very intuitive in talking you through the regressions.  She always said just the right thing.
My last regression was the best, as I did a lot of healing there.  I can’t recommend her enough.  Thanks

I will always be grateful to Stephanie for her wisdom and guidance. I had just moved to Los Angeles and wanted help putting old relationships behind me and starting out fresh in my new city. Plus, I had always been curious about past life regression in general. My appointments with Stephanie were worth every penny. I only wish our paths in life had crossed sooner. Forget all the self-help books, psychics, and whoever else might be giving you guidance. Stephanie helps you get to the root of your issues and say goodbye to them forever. I am my best self thanks to Stephanie and recommend making an appointment to see her with all my heart.

Stephanie is a godsend for anyone working through personal or creative issues.  I found Stephanie by doing a search on Brian Weiss; I’ve been a fan of Dr. Weiss for a long time, and have read many of his books.  I was thrilled to learn that Stephanie trained under Dr. Weiss and serendipitously was only a few blocks from my office.

Stephanie helped me work through my issues with my creativity.  I’m a writer, and when I went to see her, had just decided to make the leap into working on my first novel.  I had saved up for years and was on the brink of quitting my job, but had a lot of apprehensions about my future, and a tremendous fear of failure.  Stephanie is an energy powerhouse – just being around her magnetic personality is enough to shake you out of your stupor, but having her guide me through various regressions helped me get to the root of my fears about the future and my own creative potential.  She also helped me work through my fear of breaking away from the structure of my job and doing what I love and have always wanted to do.  Just after a couple of sessions, I started to see a series of changes in my life – changes in the way I interacted with people, in the way that I began to magnetize all kinds of help and resources towards me, and in the new excitement I had about the future and about my project.

Stephanie helped me break out of the patterns that were holding me back, and also gave me some extremely helpful tips and exercises to do on my own in order to get going with the writing.  I cannot recommend her more highly; she’s made such a serious difference in my life.

I had the pleasure of working with Stephanie and I am forever grateful for my experience!  She has helped me with my weight and body image issues, which I have been struggling with for the past 19 years!  She has also lead me in the right direction after 16 years of doctors poking, stabbing, prodding, testing and never diagnosing me with whatever mystery illness I have and I have felt the healthiest and best I have ever felt for as long as I can remember!  She is an absolute angel and I cannot thank her enough for the wonderful work that she has done for me.

More importantly, the CDs that she has made especially for me are integral to the life-changing transformation that Stephanie has created in my life.  They have given me the strength to face the immense challenges that I am struggling with currently.  Without Stephanie’s help, kind words and guidance, I would just be a heap of immovable, emotional turmoil and not have the strength to carry on.  Stephanie and her work has given me the hope, strength and impetus to succeed and have a complete turn around in positive thinking and believing.

The past life regressions with Stephanie have opened my eyes to seeing everything that is happening in my life from a completely different perspective.  This is the key in trying to make sense of my life’s struggles.  It allows you to think outside of the box that you are stuck in and allows you and your mind a chance to heal and a way out.

If you are struggling with anything, LET STEPHANIE HELP YOU!!!!!!  She is amazing and does fantastic work!  I come from a social services background and I was skeptical at first too but I gave it a shot and am extremely happy with the results!

I’ve been working with Stephanie for the past several months. She’s inspiring, energetic, beautiful and brilliant and when she takes you on your journey into a past life it’s the most magical experience. I highly recommend her!

I cannot be more thankful for Stephanie’s help and guidance, whether it regards physical, mental, or emotional health. I can speak for not only myself but others too, as I have sent her referrals, all of whom, are equally thrilled by her methods.

I quit smoking cold turkey following my first session, as well as kicked other compulsive habits. She helped me work through immense pain and traumas I had faced in previous years, which I am forever grateful.

Months after my initial sessions, I am still going strong with my CDs, as well as Stephanie’s love and support just an email or all away for any needed encouragement or just a quick hello. She really wants nothing but the best for others. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to better themselves!

When it comes to “stuff” like this, I often tell people I’m like a dog: there’s no placebo effect, it either works or it doesn’t.

Well, I can say unequivocally, it worked. Stephanie is a true healer, one of the most gifted, caring and intuitive people I’ve ever encountered. The results speak for themselves: two years ago, I lost 25 pounds and this year lost my addiction to nicotine, both with her guidance and support.

Don’t get me wrong. Going to Stephanie is not like taking a pill and then – POOF! – you’re healed. It’s still (very) hard work. But there’s a framework to it, a structure, a support system that seems to go all the way down to your cells. Hard to explain but she comforts, inspires and transforms your thinking in a way that causes you to stay conscious when you make your choices. As a result, you consistently make better ones.

And also, Stephanie is not some airy-fairy type – she’s tough, honest, and disarmingly direct when she has to be. She sees the truth, and tells you exactly what you need to know in the moment you need to know it.

Since leaving LA, I’ve had a few setbacks but every time it happens I go straight to one of Stephanie’s tapes and quickly get back on track again.

I can’t recommend anyone more highly. There is no doubt in my mind that if you go to Stephanie, your life will change for the better.

I can’t express enough how Stephanie helped me. I came to her with severe depression and anxiety. I found her online and decided I would give this a try, it was my last option.

Initially, I was unsure of what to expect and wasn’t too excited about listening to her MP3’s, but little did I know my life was about to take a shift thanks to these audios she made for me. The books she recommended were just what I needed to start understanding my anxiety.

We also had a regression session that healed my soul and helped me move on with my life. I feel I now have inside of me everything I need to succeed in this life. I am in deep gratitude with Stephanie for what she has done and recommend her to anyone considering Hypnotherapy!

Very good session. Learnt a lot. Thank you for your kindness and the good work you are doing for people. I have suffered with anxiety and depression for years. Stephanie is a mind magician. I have released so many fears through her guidance. I owe her a lot and you should consider yourself lucky if you have a session with her. She’s great!

I found Stephanie by doing a search for Brian Weiss, MD and hypnotherapists who have trained under him.  (If you haven’t heard of Dr. Brian Weiss, do familiarize yourself with his books.)  To sum up:  Five sessions with Stephanie helped me more than an entire year of cognitive talk therapy.  While a good cognitive therapist is important in treating depression and anxiety, getting to the root of these issues through an experienced, well-trained, ethical hypnotherapist such as Stephanie has proven to be invaluable.  Simply put:  Knowledge is power.  When you walk out of one of Stephanie’s sessions, you are not only relaxed, but more importantly, aware as to why you often feel the way you do.

The individual CD’s she makes for you are powerful in helping to create healthy, positive thoughts/feelings instead of falling back on the same, automatic negative ones.

What I also liked about Stephanie was that she never pushed any agenda, didn’t try to sell me anything, and didn’t ever go beyond my comfort level.

Bottom line:  I am a rationalist who has lived with anxiety and depression most of my adult life.  I am so grateful I put aside my skepticism long enough to receive a tremendous amount of healing in just a handful sessions.

Suheyla A. – 5 Star Review on Yelp

Stephanie has not only saved my life, but has helped me re program my brain, and my whole self, down to my DNA. After meeting Stephanie, I learned that I can overcome ANYTHING! I come from a long history of mental illness, including Bi Polar, clinical depression, Schizophrenia, alcoholism and depression, anxiety and eating disorders, narcissistic and abusive family members. I was diagnosed as depressed, with Bi Polar disorder. In the morning I would have a rush of energy and overly excitable emotions and then I would turn into a depressed, melancholic person that had no motivation for life. I was on different medications that I couldn’t live without for the past 4 years. Medications that I could not LIVE without, I couldn’t have comfortable social situations, I had low self esteem, low will power, poor eating habits, obsessive and negative thoughts, poor sleeping habits, prolonged episodes of suicidal thoughts, coupled with depression and hopelessness. I was convinced that there was no hope for me and no way out, except for death. I have to fight back tears writing this, because my situation was so severe.

On a lonely night, alone at home, contemplating suicide, without a friend to call, I saw Stephanie’s ad pop up on facebook…I clicked on it and went through her website, inspired by the story of her life, which she generously shares to inspire hope in others. I decided to call her and leave a message, as it was almost 10pm. Well, Stephanie picked up and graciously gave me her time!!! I immediately felt that this person was the one that was going to help me through this, just her demeanor and her complete understanding and compassion of a total stranger. I did not feel embarrassed or uneasy explaining my story and the state that I was in. She said you have to learn to be happy…I replied that I didn’t know how…and burst into tears. Her embrace from miles away could be felt over the phone, her immediate sense of urgency for my situation was palpable and sincere. The “Bi-polar” disorder was soon remedied with a strict diet first: NO SUGAR, NO SOY, NO MSG/GLUTEN/WHEAT/ NO ALCOHAL…Then the Bieler Broth Cleanse…after even the first day of this diet I felt completely different!!! It was as if the sky opened up and the birds began to sing, and I didn’t feel anxious or depressed. Stephanie taught me that diet is everything and the reason for the ups and downs were sugar, soy and wheat sensitivity coupled with the mental illness in my DNA. Along with the diet I began listening to the CDs that you MUST HEAR EVERYDAY, in order to re program your brain, and your whole being. The combination of the two set me on a straight course to improvement. Somewhere between magic and a miracle is what it felt like- BECAUSE THE TRANSFORMATION STARTED SO QUICKLY. Clients noticed, friends, family, even children and animals were drawn to me suddenly! I felt like I was walking on sunshine:) I am so glad I did the five sessions first…I definitely needed each and every one of them, and am continuing to see her every month to every six weeks. For, it takes nine months to completely reprogram your mind. Even being half way through I can definitely see the transformation at work. In my self, in my mind, my sleep, my relationships, my work, stamina and energy levels, motivation and eating habits as the result of incorporating many amazing remedies Stephanie has so kindly taught me. She is giving and natural, she is completely devoted to her clients and really cares. She is never impersonal or cold, she is always warm and makes you feel like you are loved. Stephanie goes above and beyond the call of duty to TRANSFORM AND EDUCATE her clients. Without her I have know idea where I would be, and it would be very scary to know… THANKFULLY SHE WAS PUT INTO MY LIFE AND NOW I HAVE A LIFE AND WILL NEVER BE THE SAME! I am now a joyful, positive individual that strives to help and inspire someone, everyday, as Stephanie has helped and inspired me. THANKS THANKS THANKS TO STEPHANIE RISELEY!!!! (BTW: SHE CAN HELP YOU WITH ANY PROBLEM, ANY, YOU NAME IT, SHE HAS A SOLUTION!!!)

I don’t even know where to begin! First, Stephanie is like a professional neural alchemist. She will show you the way to your OWN transformation into that legendary philosophers stone. A down to earth person who will TREAT YOU LIKE A HUMAN rather than an object/client. And that, my friends, is a superb quality.

Now, as for my story… I’ve been dealing with severe bouts of depression. Confidence and mind were both submerged in tar. No matter how hard I tried to break free, it just seemed as if I was sinking deeper and deeper into an abyss. Meditation (I practice zen) helped to calm my racing mind but it was only temporary. However, through meditation, I noticed something else. A nagging feeling. A burden. If it wasn’t for this nagging feeling, I wouldn’t have turned to Stephanie.
And boy, I’m sure glad I did. Now here I am, 5 sessions later. Happier, calmer, and confident. RESULTS. Can’t argue with that.

Now, after all is said and done, I give my highest recommendation to the services of Stephanie. A healer, a sage, and a friend!

Stephanie is awesome – both incredibly helpful and insightful, and fun!

Stephanie came highly recommended to me from two independent friends, and I signed up for a first batch of 5 sessions in November 2010.  One of the things I was wrestling with was if and when to propose to my girlfriend. Also, as an overachiever, I am hard on myself – a real taskmaster.

The first session we had, she gave her overview of the brain and how it works. I know quite a bit about the brain, but this was a GREAT review and Stephanie brought a new simplicity and elegance and entertainment to explaining how habits and unsupportive patterns form, and what we need to do to change them.  I also appreciated she didn’t promise unrealistic “get changed quick/instant results”, and was authentic about what I needed to expect to do to retrain my brain.

She then did a hypnosis session for me, and recorded it.  She said I should listen to it regularly in order to have my subconscious begin to trust Stephanie and her voice.  I was pretty religious in listening to her recording daily before we met again, and it’s true – listening to it many times made it easier in our 2nd session to jump into a past life regression…which I got a LOT of insight from!

Rather than going on session by session, let me say this: it only took 3 sessions to have some big breakthroughs in opening my heart, and in coming to a clear decision to propose sooner rather than later to my girlfriend (which I did on Xmas eve!).

Also, because of Stephanie’s recordings and help, I am MUCH more aware and better (though far from perfect) at watching my thoughts and changing them to more positive ones, more supportive of myself and less critical.  One of my top priorities in 2011 is continuing to retrain my brain.

If you’re wondering whether Stephanie is worth the investment – YES!  In fact, her rates are too low.  The first batch of sessions was a huge help to me, and I’m sure I’ll keep working with her in 2011.

Stephanie is wonderful!

She is one of the most giving, loving people I have met – who genuinely cares about helping others – helping them achieve their goals, helping them set themselves free (of many different things – habits, people, etc.), and helping them be the wonderful people they are supposed to be.

Stephanie has given me spiritual, emotional and practical advice and guidance, and is available whenever you need her, which is rare and so valuable.

Her CDs are great – her sessions are incredibly relaxing. I have tried a few different hypnotherapists and she’s by far my favorite! And that is because of her incredibly personal guidance.

Thank you Stephanie! :))

Stephanie Riseley is an incredibly intelligent, intuitive, insightful, and inspirational hypnotherapist. Each and every session was filled to the brim with invaluable information and profound introspection. Stephanie has a knack for getting right down to business, telling it like it is in the most helpful, compassionate way possible, and holding up mirrors at just the right angles so you can see your own unconscious blind spots while holding loving space for your own personal growth and highest evolution. The self-awareness that I gleaned and the confidence that I gained as a result of my journey with Stephanie made an indelible impact on my life, and I am forever grateful for her guidance. With her wisdom, candor, and joie de vivre, I could not have asked for a better guide.

I met Stephanie in 2009. I had several sessions with her. She is a beautiful spirit. She is intuitive and also very honest. She does not take every person who calls her as a client if she knows that the “client” will not be getting meaningful or helpful services from her.

My sessions with her were very healing and inspiring. I got a lot out of them. I have recommended her to many of my friends who are also very happy with the services and guidance they received from Stephanie.

As humanity is shifting into a critical and magical time in history, the golden age of 2012. The illusions of our socially imposed institutions, such as pharmaceutical practices are beginning to reveal their negative impacts and we are finding that the truth is that we have had the medicine within all along….

This is where the presence and assistance of profound and connected healers such as Stephanie can help rewire any and all of your sabotaging behaviors and beliefs through hypnosis and past-life regression.

This method of psychological healing is in my opinion the most effective strategy one can incorporate into their wellness routine because through hypnosis and past-life regression we are allowed to be free of the dense baggage and negative wiring of this body while finding out the solutions that can change us.

That is exactly what Stephanie did for me through her gifted voice and the visual tools she uses…I am no longer afraid.

Nina G. – 5 Star Review on Yelp

Stephanie is especially good at this work because her approach is that of a supportive, natural, calming technique that eases you into a remarkable voluntary change of behavior and perception.  She hones in on your blocks and takes you under with grace.  It’s totally relaxing…Then you leave with a CD in that day’s themed area of your customized program -i.e. weight loss, quitting smoking. Attracting a great job, perfect health – that you play privately twice a day.  I call it “the best bedtime story.”  A personal guide to relaxing and changing without any strain or huge effort. Just listen.

Here’s the thing.  There are many hypnotherapists to choose from but it’s what you get from the work that matters. I’ve gone to Stephanie for many issues, weight loss, anxiety/panic attacks, healing after breast cancer, attracting abundance, de-stressing and enjoying life more.  In all cases I love the results after listening to her CD’s day and night for weeks at a time.  As she explains it – it’s not magic – it actually reprograms your brain!  How fantastic.

At a time in my life when nothing was making sense, I approached Stephanie to help clarify for me some of the reasons certain people were put in my life, and what I could do to control what was seemingly so out-of-hand.  Through her gentle, personal and HIGHLY EFFECTIVE hypnotherapy techniques, I realized the powers I have are deeper and more available to me than I had realized.

She worked diligently to focus my thoughts on my body, centering me and allowing my soul to begin to heal.  The focus on my core was also a fantastic way for me to lose those stubborn last 10 pounds while I shed the weight of the world off my shoulders.  Stephanie provided SPECIFIC, USEABLE, RELIABLE ANSWERS to weight loss, personal power, and personal strength issues.

I highly recommend her services and welcome any questions you have.

Stephanie is a great hypnotherapist: experienced, intuitive and compassionate.  I’m already motivated to turn my diet and lifestyle around after the first visit, she’ll create a customized meditation/visualization program for you.  Highly, highly recommended!

Mike B. – 5 Star Review on Yelp

I heard about Stephanie from a friend and fellow neurotic.  He was biting his nails and she treated him and he stopped.

I needed to see her for obsessive-compulsive self-mutilation.  I would pick at the cuticles on my thumbs so much that the nail would grow horribly deformed.   You can Google ‘median nail dystrophy’ and see for yourself.  This had been a problem my entire life.  I am a 32 year old, otherwise healthy male.

On my friend’s recommendation I saw Stephanie.  I was very skeptical.  Three treatments later my lifelong habit of picking my cuticles was gone.  About six months after the first treatment session, my thumbs are normal for the first time in my life.

Stephanie helps in a number of ways.

First is the actual hypnosis.  Hypnosis is not sleep or any kind of weird state of mind control.  You will be awake and cognizant of your surroundings through the session.  You also will not walk out of the session totally cured like in the movies.  Stephanie makes CDs, which you listen to every day in your own self-hypnosis.  This homework helps to re-train your mind to avoid whatever destructive behavior you’re looking to treat.

Second is she encourages you to look a little deeper into your own soul to try to identify what outside stressors or subconscious demons are compelling you to do that thing you do.  I personally cannot stand therapists and therapy, but while listening to her CDs I had the time to examine my own problems in my mind and help to think more positively about myself and others.

I would recommend Stephanie to anyone in a heartbeat.  She changed my life!
