I would like to share some of the letters that I have received over the last few years. I personally believe that some people use testimonials in a manipulative way and many are not valid. However, due to many requests, I have decided to publish the following letters all of which are on file in my office. I have arranged the letters by subject.
I just want to thank you again for all your work with me today. That was incredible. I felt like I was finally talking to someone who understood about “coincidences” and “metaphors” on a level that most people don’t get. It isn’t like I try to talk to people about these things, it’s just that they don’t really draw that kind of conversation out of me and so it isn’t ever a very developed conversation with others. It really felt like I was at home with you and it was very helpful. The actual therapy session was really amazing and different than any session I had before. It seemed like 3 minutes! It occured to me what a gift it was that you went over the time limit with me (especially by so much). I want you to know that I am very grateful to you for giving me that extra time – I didn’t look at the clock much so I didn’t realize how fast it all went. I think you are like Milton Erickson! I needed the insights you gave me regarding my family. You are very wise.
So far so good! I have put together a GREAT “can-do” kit & have added rug-making to the list – have several kits on order to crochet & to use on a loom! Can’t wait to start – I have so many neat projects to keep my hands busy. The little rough edges I notice, I quickly take care of with a file & keep them lotioned. So far no biting!
THANKS for the meaning – couldn’t find it yesterday when I did a search! THANKS again – I have listened to the recording every day – heard stuff I didn’t hear when I was there! THANK YOU! Will keep you posted!
I came in for a session because I wanted to learn some relaxation techniques to help me study for the California Bar Exam, which I took in July. I am happy to report that I PASSED the bar and am waiting to be sworn in as an attorney in California!!! I cannot thank you enough for your help in putting me in the right frame of mind as I studied for the bar. I listened to the hypnotherapy CD we made every night all of last summer. I also used some of the techniques you taught me to relax. When I was having an especially difficult time with the material, I would take some time out and pop in that CD for ten minutes, and come back to the books feeling refreshed.
There is NO DOUBT in my mind that the one session I had with you played a huge role in my success. THANK YOU SO MUCH for giving me the tools I needed to master the monstrous California bar exam.
This Thanksgiving I have much to be grateful for, and you are one of the primary people I appreciated so much throughout this long and arduous process.
I wish you the best and thank you again.
I have enloyed my first full week of being a non-smoker and I cannot thank you enough !! The work you do is priceless and I shall always be greatfull for the time you spent with me. Your compassion and generous spirt will always be remembered.
I just left you a message on the phone. I saw you a year ago for smoking cessation, and did great until my annual country fair gig! shoot. I have quit again a couple of times for a couple of months, but have opened a new business and am drowning in the details , financial worries, all that…time to quit the excuses and get back to my health! Can you help? I have Thursday afternoons and Mondays the most open, although the next monday I think I have a couple surgeries..I’d love to do this before spring break with the kids the week of the 24th if there is any chance of that. Wednesdays and Fridays are pretty much out. Thanks is advance, I should have contacted you sooner. By the way, my daughter is also interested. Yeah! I’d love to support her in any way you suggest.
Thanks for all.
My partner needs to stop smoking asap, but perhaps more importantly needs to deal with her newly discovered lung cancer and her mortality. I think some of the excellent visualization work you do could help her have a more positive, creative healthy attitude. I know you are extremely busy, and if it is not possible for you to see her soon, could you possibly recommend another hypnotherapist, preferably a woman? Thanks again so much for helping me stop smoking over 2 years ago.
I am a non-smoker!! Doing well, No withdraws, No regrets! Your system works & it’s the best!
Don’t know if you remember me, but you helped me quit smoking last august. It worked great by the way. No problems anymore at all. I wonder if you could help me out with something else. . . I’m a part time musician, and rarely, if ever, perform vocally. I don’t have a great voice. at all…but it could be used if I ever got the guts to use it. Problem is that I can sing my heart out in the car and in the shower, etc, but get me in front of a mic, and I just can’t re-create it, and I know that it comes from a lack of confidence in my voice. I’m not looking for voice lessons (that might be out of your expertise) but I’m looking for some help with my confidence level. What do you think?
Both of us want to thank you for your charm, skills, magic touch, and success in working with us. We are both smoke free now after a week and a half and have not cheated once since our visits with you. We both listen to the tapes at least every other day to reinforce our reasons for quitting and strong desired to stay off the stuff. I have had a tough go of it the last few days, although the first week was easy. In fact, the easiest I have ever had quitting smoking. I have only once found my self short with any one, although my wife says she has noticed it a couple times. I had my team in from Saint Louis this last week (they all smoke) and I was able to meet with them all day, bear their smoke breaks, sit in a bar at night with them smoking and not once did I have the urge to smoke. I did pull out the tape and listen often. I hope this finds you in good spirits and again, thanks so much for your help.
Thanks so much for the darling “strawberry” suit and picture frame. We sure appreciate you thinking of us! Life is certainly going well for all of us Ky lee is a wonderful baby. Truly happy all the time. I’m back to work 2 1/2 days a week and starting to feel more comfortable with my time away. We have a very close friend that’s watching Kylee at our house, so that worked out great. Sam’s enjoying his tape and his sleeping has truly improved. You really have been such a gift to us – thank you for all your great work and special friendship.
Thank you for the great class. it made me feel very positive and empowered. I feel ready and excited for birth.
Cedric and I wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful birth, thanks to you. The labor was long, but not bad and was all natural. The worst was the mental anticipation for labor to begin (I was a week late). The day it started, we had decided I was too obsessed and meditated for a while and then left to go to the beach. Didn’t even get close to the beach before it began (shortly after noon on the 20th). We walked and meditated until 10pm, and then went to the hospital. It was more around 4am that it started hurting, but not any worse than a bladder infection. Meditation made it easy to deal with. Thank you for helping us learn techniques that work for me so that I could go without medications. Our son is incredible. Know I have to learn how to get things done and take care of him. Any advice?? Just joking. Anyway, we wanted to let you know a little about our birth experience and thank you for teaching us the skills we needed to actually follow our birth plan to the letter.
I was fortunate to discover Nancy Wheeler when I felt unable to manage my health, specifically, my weight. She compassionately identified the barriers to weight loss that were unique to me. I was impressed by her ability to pinpoint these behaviors, and reframe my inner voice towards a (current) slimmer, happier me.
Nancy’s intentions are truly good. Her life resume and her transparent interactions with me are traits of a professional. I trust her, and give her my highest recommendation.
Just wanted to let you know that I have lost 26 lbs! I fall asleep to my CD every night and I can’t believe how automatically I am making good choices, eating less and exercising regularly. This has changed my life and I love the energy I feel.
Thank you so much.
I first went to Nancy Wheeler at the recommendation of a friend in 2006 when I wanted to lose weight. It took a few sessions and some months for that to happen, but happen it did.
Other problems cleared up along the way with Nancy’s help, for example, grieving for the loss of family and animals and worrying about whether I should retire (Nancy helped me decide not to, thank goodness). Over the years, I viewed her as a deep-hearted friend, always available to listen and suggest, a practitioner of a therapy I had come to rely on. I visited her for tune-ups periodically; she also helped a friend of mine, another skeptic, quit smoking.
Then in 2008 I was diagnosed with esophageal cancer and underwent radiation and two rounds of chemotherapy. It was hell, and I expected to die and was told by the surgeon that he could not operate because I’d likely die on the table. I had a lawyer come to my house to make up my will. Thin and weak, my extremities numb, still on chemotherapy, I went to Nancy, and she made a CD for me that I listened to every day, sometimes twice a day for months. Her warm voice calmed my fears; her scenarios of good cells killing bad cells stuck in my mind.
I recovered slowly but was still anxious, afraid I could not return to teaching and living on my own, so she made another CD for me. I listened to both CD’s every day until my depression lifted and I wanted to live again. Her support was essential to my return to life. At seventy now, I continue teaching at a university and living on my own on a farm with animals. I am immensely grateful to Nancy Wheeler for the rich and happy life I have now; without her encouragement and professional support, I would not be here.
A long-time client and college professor
Thank you very much for all the time and effort you put into getting the light for me. No one has ever surprised me like that before like that (at least not in this life!). I do so appreciate your persistence and of course Sondra’s gift of the light to me. I am sure this light will make a huge difference this coming winter. When I first looked into it, at your office, there was something “pleasant” about it and the feeling I got inside. I can’t really put the feeling into words but it was nice and definitely felt inside. I am grateful to you and Mark for your work with Sondra. Your session with her in particular has really made a positive difference in her life. I can see the change in her face and eyes and know it has healed her depression and put her on a positive path. You have the gift of making one feel very much at ease around as they explore their life issues. I feel that every encounter is a gift with a reason and I thank you for all you have “shown” me and Sondra thru our sessions. Hope you have a great week. Oh, I “met” with my inner adviser and I received some answers I been looking for. Interconnectedness can create such a feeling of peace and the tape you made me is another pathway towards this and I thank you for having the insight to directing me in this direction.
The New Year is getting off to a great start! Yes, I think the light is helping – I’ve been able to get up in the morning without the alarm. I’ve also lost 4 pounds! I play your tape every night before I fall asleep. Oh, the power of positive thinking.
Just a quick update on my progress. I’ve lost 15 pounds! I haven’t felt this happy in years. The light is working! I use it every morning. Your voice is the last thing I hear when I go to sleep. I put the tape you made me in the stereo, turn it on, and go to sleep. I no longer have cravings, I’m working out twice a day and enjoying every moment of it. I missed your meditation session at OMSI – Forgot to write it down on my calendar! I was really looking forward to it. Let me know when you plan to do another. Do you have the medical code for SAD disorder? My insurance will probably pay for the light box but they need the code. If you know it, could you put it on another statement and send it to me. Thanks.
Thank you for today’s wonderful session and the excellent tape. It was very thoughtful of you to make a tape for me as well. Thank you so very much. I would like to just keep a standing order for the light box. There is no hurry for it . . hopefully, it will be sunny for awhile (see, I’m becoming a positive thinker). Whenever it is made, just let me know. Thank you again for everything. This has been a wonderful journey.
Thank You Nancy,
I didn’t think a simple card can convey the extreme appreciation that I hold for you. I was in such pain and you really helped to lift me out of that! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I just wanted to thank you for an experience that I cannot totally put into words but one which has had a profound effect on me. I plan to listen to the tape and explore this further. You are very professional and so easy to talk with and I feel you have helped my cousin tremendously as well. You are truly unique in what you do and the clarity in which you speak is very informative and the caring you show, so genuine. Thank you for a truly wonderful enlightenment.
Thank you for the great session! I learned so much about my self and made some monumental discoveries about my control issues. I will be listening to my tape religiously so everything will “stick”. I’ll send you a post card from my next destination.
I just wanted to drop a quick hello and let you know how much I took with me from our Wednesday night session. I have really begun to sense the deep seated healing which is taking place on a number of levels. I have adopted a new daily working mantra “My Jaw is Healthy, Balanced and RELAXED” I say that to my self a lot during the day. Friday I visited the acupuncturist and I think we isolated a pretty stressed out muscle that up until then had kept itself hidden. The combination of that and our session Wednesday made for the best jaw day I have had in over a year. I actually got through two very taxing social situations and tackled my duties at the loud and noisy theater Friday night without the mouth piece to keep my teeth from hitting. Yes I still felt some teeth contact, but under it all was a calm knowing that I was in touch with the truth and even though I wasn’t there yet (outside of my wonderful green room) I would be. I love my tape and look forward to escaping into it at the end of the day. Over the last couple of days the teeth hitting isn’t surrounded with so much drama and as a result, the muscles are more relaxed and the urge to clench is subsiding. I catch myself constricting the jaw muscles on the right side now and am amazed at the amount it drops when I relax it. That is always followed by a deep cleansing breath that feels SOoooooo great. I am realizing that I carry anger and make judgments about people that , Granted, I may not want to hang with socially or even have them in my life to any great extent. However there is no need to hoist all the energy and judgmental hostility towards them in my mind. Release them to Spirit. Big things are happening as I approach my half century point in my life. I see this as another step in a God directed housecleaning that will enable me to be much healthier, happier and more productive in my next 50.
Thank you again and have a great week.
FEAR OF FLYING
I wanted to let you know I’m feeling much better about my upcoming flight and I wanted to say thanks!! I was thinking yesterday about my flights as a kid and realized that every-time I was flying , I was leaving someone behind (either my mom or my dad). Does that seem like something that could cause fear later on?
Thanks again and I’ll let you know how the trip goes!!
I just had to write to thank you for your help in conquering my fear of flying. As you may remember, I met with you in early September to prepare for a family visit to New York over the Thanksgiving weekend. Flying has been a source of stress and anxiety for me in recent years; however, between the hypnosis session and the other trips and techniques you provided I was more than prepared. Once on the flight , I was calm, relaxed and excited. I read, napped, talked to other passengers and even went to the bathroom. All things I’ve been to nervous to do when flying. The flight home was even better, if possible because I had gained so much confidence. I can’t thank you enough. You changed my life for the better in just a 5 hour session. The impact on my life style has changed dramatically. i have already started making plans for Hawaii in the spring and new Orleans in 2004. To have such an impact on another person is more than a service it’s a gift. I have and will continue to recommend you to everyone I know. Thank you again and have a happy holiday season.
DEALING WITH LOSS
Thank you so much for the wonderful healing that you do! For the first time in many months I finally have some peace of mind! After our wonderful session on Thursday the 13th I was sad and really feeling a sense of loss- it was so strange! Then I found myself not needing to drive by his house,what a shock! I didn’t think I would heel so quickly! I still think of him often, but not in the obsessive, unhealthy manner in which I was responding. Thank you so very much Nancy, I really appreciate all that you do, and am so grateful to you that you could help me through such a difficult period in my life. You have such a beautiful talent and such a God given gift. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful gift with others. I know I am especially grateful!
YOU ARE AWESOME!!
I’m home today and recovering well. Turns out the worst part was the catheter. All of the Kaiser people were upbeat, fun and wonderful. I played the tape on the way to the hospital and the in-hospital experience could not have been better. Cindi was also a great caregiver last nite. Your card was wonderful and truly appreciated !!! I am honored to have met you and to know you. I will get the results next Tuesday but the surgeon is confident he got everything out. Your help and support has been valuable beyond words. I’ll be in touch soon but always feel free to give me a call or an email at any time.
I just wanted to droop you a note and thank you for your help with the hypnosis. It’s only been a week and a half, and although I came to you for help with getting the eye surgery done, I feel different in mt every day life. I went to the dentist today for a 2 hour appointment to have crown work done, and for all the reasons I’ve always had (PURE FEAR, and the “what if’s”), I almost didn’t go. But I practiced my relaxation and used my phrase “calm and comfortable”, and all the other stuff you taught me, AND I DID IT. I didn’t panic, I was comfortable through the whole procedure, no fear, no waiting for it to take over, I could have gone to sleep. I’ve never been able to do this before. I know I’ll be able to get through the eye surgery also. Thanks to you. I’m so glad I met you. By the way, can you tell me the names of that relaxation tape you used during my hypnosis? You told me that night, but I can’t remember and I’d really like to get it.
These gifts are for your voice and personal messages that are on my tape. Nancy deep in my mind you have lit me a FIRE! This week I will close a deal worth $230,000.
About a month ago you worked with my daughter. I wanted to tell you what a success your session with her has proven. She did, by the way, recently attend the conference where she had to public speak and she did just fine. She also was elected to the position she was campaigning for. She said she was a little nervous but nothing like the paralyzing fear she had before. She listens to the tapes you made often and we both think it translates positively into other parts of her life as well.
Thought you would like to know!
Thanks again for all your help. It’s nice to finally have someone understand and help me through my feelings. I hope you and your family have a nice Christmas and New Year.
Just wanted to thank you again. Although its only been a few days os far, I’m confident I’ll win the battle this time. I really enjoyed the time we spent just talking and felt connected right away. It seems we have a lot of similarities in our lives. Well, thanks again.
THANK YOU! I thoroughly enjoyed the session last night and am excited to move forward with positive changes in my life. It’s a treat to engage in purposeful learning and thoughtful conversation. I appreciate your thorough delving into my directions and especially the information am positive self-talk. I feel like I’m at a real breakthrough point with my life, and the hypnosis will help energize the changes and speed them into reality.
Thanks for your help.
Thank you for all of your direction and energy. This is an interesting crossroad in my life here on planet earth. Your help is certainly appreciated.
You have helped me more than you know! Thank you so much for the hypnotherapy session – You are SO GOOD! I feel great, and you have given me some very useful tools to deal with many issues and stresses. I really appreciate your kindness and generosity.
Thank you for your patience! Life goes much better, both physically and emotionally. I really appreciate your help!
I really enjoyed the session the other night. I am very positive the benefits will be tremendous. I will refer as many people as I know to you. You are an asset to the profession.
