ANXIETIES, FEARS, PHOBIAS
Gina Orlando is an amazing hypnotherapist and a gifted healer. My doctor recommended Gina to me when I was experiencing anxiety while driving on the highway. I was able to put that fear behind with her assistance. Gina is non-judgmental, open, and caring, and she teaches you to work with tools that are useful in many different contexts. Make an appointment with her! It will be one of the best experiences of your life.

Thanks, Gina. You’ve played such a huge role in helping me with two anxiety areas of my life, smoking and public speaking. I always told myself that if I can present in public without feeling anxious and stressed, I could do almost anything. I feel I can. Thanks!

LIFE ENRICHMENT and HEALTHY AGING
In every life there’s a point when we reach the “fork in the road.” Prior to meeting Gina, I’d reached several forks and taken many roads and didn’t like anything about my decisions. I couldn’t see how to get back to a path that would lead me to a peaceful life. I was pretty lost. I was recommended to Gina after a one-time chance encounter with a prior client of Gina’s. She suggested I try hypnosis.
I called Gina, not knowing what to expect or if she could be of any help. In fact, she was. Because of our sessions I began to find answers, feel stronger and move through the walls that were holding me back in old habits. Our sessions didn’t end at her door either. She gave me CD’s of the hypnosis that took place in the sessions and I was able to listen to them at night before falling asleep. Ultimately, I disclosed a serious issue and Gina, having great integrity, recommended me to a therapist who dealt with that type of issue. It’s hard to explain, but I don’t know where I would be without her help.
I now have a great new job and a wonderful husband. I don’t think I’d have that because I couldn’t see those things being attainable. Our sessions were my beacon of light when I felt lost. I could not be more pleased or thankful that we met. -C. W. Spring, 2012

She will open your eyes to incredible healing resources that are just right for you. If you work with her over time, you may find that your life opens up in new and amazing ways.

I deeply enjoy holistic energy work and use/practice many different forms of it. Of these many modalities I have found hypnosis to be the best access point for my subconscious mind. Gina Orlando has a very comforting way to help me achieve the goals I desire. My improved memory and peaceful sleep have been due to the sessions Gina guided me through. -S.L., Airline Pilot, 2015
WEIGHT LOSS and HEALTH ENHANCEMENT:
I wanted to let you know that I am doing well with my weight loss. I have lost 36 pounds since the start of the new year. I am down to the healthy body fat percentage. Also, I am starting to mix up my routine more and have signed up for fitness events. All of this has changed how I think as well and has me very interested in the psychology of sport. There is much more that is possible when my mind can believe it. That ball got rolling for sure with our discussions, your coaching, and with your great self-hypnosis CDs. Thanks, -R.D. Spring, 2012
Gina, I have fought an addiction to cakes, carbs and caffeine half heartedly for years. With your help I got into closer touch with my whole heart, and under your empathetic counsel I began to care deeply about what I was nourishing my body with. I know it will continue to be a journey but I am moving away from deep cravings to a mild want, and you have given me the tools to work around the “wants”. Thanks so much for your intent listening, for picking up the cues and clues that move you to reveal and heal!

This group has been so helpful to me. While I have only lost about 15 pounds since we started, I know I have a different attitude and I know I can do this. It’s not about the food.

When I first came to Gina Orlando, I had battled my weight for 20 years. I needed a change to spur me on and thought about giving hypnosis a chance, but I was skeptical. Hell, my job requires me to doubt things until I have all the facts. Well here are the facts. a 50 lb. weight loss that has stayed off for years! Case closed!
– T.W., Chicago Police Officer, 2004 (still has maintained his weight loss)
The hypnosis class was a door opening for me to healthier living and real weight loss. There was no “instant miracle” being touted which always makes me skeptical. Understanding the body functions regarding metabolism along with lifetime lifestyle changes made real sense to me. I felt encouraged during class and not pressured to “compete” who lost the most weight. I continue to use the CDs in the evening and quiet times and feel refreshed after them. If I do fall asleep during a CD, I feel very positive the next morning. I have lost 35 pounds so far and I attribute it to using Gina’s hypnosis CDs, her great suggestions and the South Beach plan. I cut out soda, drink lots of water, very little sugar and excess carbs, try to exercise regularly and not feel guilty when I indulge in a favorite food on occasion. I really like the new energy I feel!

My son got over his anxiety with school and test performance with your help. He says he is even having more fun now, too. He just did excellently on the standardized tests.

With your help, I was able to beat my personal best and place #5 in an international half marathon in my age range (45-55). I am so excited! Thank you!

Had to tell you. My golf game has improved considerably this season, but last night was a magical hour on the basketball court at the Gottlieb Fitness Center . There were only two other guys there, both hot shots, very good players in their early 20s. We played the strenuous game called “21” where it’s every man for himself, two guys playing defense against whoever has the ball. When I started hitting 3-pointers, the two defenders (one was about 6′ 4″ the other my height) guarded me closely. I’m an old guy (62 next month) and I’ve never been quick on the dribble, so it was impossible to drive around them for lay-ups. Instead, I put up jump hook shots from 25 feet–and they went in. I’d get a rebound, race to the 3-point arc, turn and shoot in one motion in the direction of the basket and barely get it off over their outstretched hands. Nothing but net! Just about every time! They were overplaying me so much on the outside that on rare occasions I was able to surprise them with a race to the basket, putting in a reverse left-handed lay-up once and a wild underhand shot off the backboard from six feet another time. I’ve been playing basketball all my life, but I’ve never had a shooting night like this before. Talk about being in the zone, I believed every shot was going in–and about 90% of them did. I won both games we played. My young opponents seemed devastated and happy for me at the same time. What a high! I don’t know how else to explain it. Self-hypnosis works. Thanks.
