Freed me from strong fear and anxiety
There is nothing I didn’t like about the whole experience. I found it to be one of the best decisions I ever made. It has changed my life immensely. It has freed me from strong fear and anxiety and I learnt an enormous amount about myself. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Could not be happier. Thank you so much Anna. I have now found confidence I never knew I had.

Taught me not to worry
I have enjoyed my experience. Anna has taught me not to worry about what could happen (and probably doesn’t) and what other people think. I also feel more relaxed.

Helped me with issues from my past
The experience was very good. I felt I was in a safe and secure environment and it was also very relaxing. Anna is fantastic and she really helped me with issues from my past. I had been having nightmares regarding someone in my past and after one visit these nightmares stopped. Anna has also helped me with clamping my jaw through stress. This has been greatly relieved.

Emotional trauma put to bed
Thanks to my sessions, I’ve learned a lot about myself and discovered how hypnosis can help you deal with your worries, fears, and self-doubt. I feel great and so much more positive. My emotional trauma I suffered with for so many years has been put to bed. I’ve learned to love myself more. I would highly recommend Anna to anyone having doubts with themselves.

Feeling very confident
Anna was very welcoming and made me feel very comfortable. I was nervous and unsure about being hypnotised but Anna made the experience a good one. I walked out feeling very confident and ready to take on anything. I felt extremely positive.
Megan Ferguson Quit Smoking June 6, 2017
Confidence to leap forward
The sessions have given me the space to be open and self-reflect, to listen to my subconscious mind, and not ignore it and do something about it.
I now have the confidence to leap forward and present in front of an audience.
It was a different experience for me, as I am already very self-aware of myself and others, yet I was able to connect to a much deeper part of myself to reveal what I needed to take my career to the next level.

Reset my mindset
This experience has been a new challenge/chapter for me and I have found it to be an excellent journey to get on, to reset my mindset and focus on myself and my goals in life. I did not know what to expect but am pleasantly surprised on how it has helped me on my journey. Anna has been great throughout the whole process!!

A positive effect
Anna always has a positive effect on me when I visit her. From the time you walk into her office you feel relaxed and know that something special is going to happen. So glad I found Anna!!

Helped me see things clearer
A great experience as it has helped me see things clearer and prioritise my many issues I currently have. I experienced a sense of calmness with the brain starting to slow down after week 2 which makes everything easier to access.
Update one year later:
Thanks for the great chat
As I mentioned I find myself still using some of the positive thinking processes you taught me during our sessions early last year.
Our sessions became a game changer as you brought me out of a very dull negative mind set.
I had a huge amount of current issues and lingering baggage at the time and it all just seemed too much.
However half way through your sessions I started to feel like things were starting to fall into categories of priority. This helped me break the massive issues into bite size chunks and it gave me a more confident and positive approach to address the issues.
I now find that finally things have worked out and 2017 is certainly looking much better than a horror 2016.
A more steady job and by chance ran into a person that is fantastic.
We are now building a great relationship and I have a more positive outlook on life.
Your sessions will certainly never be forgotten. Thank you very much

I am over a year off the cigarettes
I was a long time smoker, somewhat doubtful, but desperate to give up. I just couldn’t do it on my own after many attempts. I am now 30 days clear, and haven’t wanted one. An ex-smoker always wants a smoke. A non-smoker asks why would anyone want to?
Anna turned me back into a non-smoker rather than making me an ex-smoker. I honestly haven’t considered having one in 30 days, and would have considered that impossible. I’m somewhat surprised at how effective it has been, but am also very grateful.
Update one year later:
Thanks for the email. I am over a year off the cigarettes. Done it easy and happy as can be.
Thanks for the follow-up and support, I appreciate it.
Luke Oliver Quit Smoking April 20, 2017
Feeling normal again
Prior to seeking help with hypnotherapy, I was a little sceptical about how hypnosis could help with my constant worries about my health and what the future could hold. I was extremely surprised how well I was coping after only one session. I also noticed that my anxiety wasn’t affecting me as it had prior to hypnosis. The more sessions I did the better I felt and was gradually getting back to feeling normal again. My family also noticed changes, I didn’t have the mood swings that I previously had.

Self-development and personal growth
Anna offered me a very comforting experience in my self-development. Her caring nature, her empathy, her guiding approach, plus her skills and knowledge has supported my personal growth; for which I am very grateful. She was exactly what I needed.

Major transformational change
Anna has an intuitive way of connecting with empathy which is what attracted me to the service.
I have had more than one major transformational change as well as progressing with a number of behavioural changes.
Bianca Baddock Weight Loss March 11, 2017
Worked much better than imagined
Anna was very understanding, eg, explaining the 6 triggers of smoking. Prompt response when I was having questions. Hypnotherapy for quit smoking worked much better than imagined, so quickly, addressing metal thoughts, pains, sleep, cravings.

Sharon Auhl Quit Smoking January 16, 2017
I am now a non-smoker
The environment was safe and private. Anna is very easy to get along with. I didn’t know what to expect but am now smoke free. Have not had a cigarette since my first session.
Update one month later:
I had a very positive experience with Anna. Was not sure I could successfully be hypnotised but it worked. After one session with Anna (and a follow up reinforcement session) I am now a non-smoker and haven't been tempted since the first session. Being a pack a day smoker I am thrilled with how easy this has been. I would recommend Anna to anyone struggling to give up.
Lynn Blyth Quit Smoking January 13, 2017
Help for my sugar addiction
Overall it was very enjoyable. I came with an open mind, hoping to get help for my sugar addiction. I experienced personal growth through a very painful process but it was cleansing. It stripped away the pain I was carrying and allowed me to move on with my life without scars. Anna was the most caring, professional, giving everything possible to help me. She’s lovely and special. I highly recommend her.

A wonderful support
Anna is a warm and caring person who has listened to all that I have shared and has been a wonderful support through a very difficult time. Her guidance and genuine concern has been very much appreciated.
Karen Robinson Stress Relief Program January 4, 2017
My fear of heights
It was a fantastic experience. Initially, Anna worked on my fear of heights, an amazing experience. Then she uncovered some other aspects that gave me great benefit. She’s amazing the way she gets me to explore events and connections and now I have great visual images to work with on my issues. It’s an important process to heal my inner self. I highly recommend Anna for her professionalism and kind manner.
Update 5 months later:
Anna guided me through my issue with heights, providing me with tools to control my negative reactions, and allowing me to enjoy the views from up high, as my wife and others are doing. Now I've gone up Tokyo tower in Japan, enjoying the panoramas, happy and smiling. I'm looking forward to seeing more views in our travels. Anna changes lives forever, try her approach and you will be a new person.

12 months without smoking
Hi Anna, thank you for taking me on my hypnotherapy journey. It is proving to be extremely helpful. I have stopped smoking and feel stronger that I won’t go back to it this time. I definitely have recommended you to other people, as it’s a unique experience and a very personable one as well.
Update one year later:
Hi Anna, I just wanted to let you know, I have just gone 12 months without smoking and I want to say thank you so much. It is so good to be free of them. I’m still really excited that I have done 12 months of not smoking, and continue to feel like I don’t want to have a smoke ever again.
Trina Lucas Quit Smoking November 29, 2016
I am now smoke free
Professional, friendly. After smoking for over 14 years I now don’t smoke. I still get small cravings as it’s only been 3 days not smoking but I can now over power the cravings within the mind.
Update 5 weeks later:
5 weeks since hypnosis and I am now smoke free without the overpowering cravings. I was a pack a day smoker and had tried to quit in the past, lasting only 3-4 days before giving in to the overpowering cravings, fighting all the way but with hypnotherapy the cravings are minimal and last about 2 seconds before your subconscious mind reminds you that you don’t smoke anymore and you move on quickly from any cravings. Anna was professional, friendly and down to earth and I would recommend her highly if you want to succeed in becoming a non-smoker. 10/10
Matt Bode Quit Smoking November 6, 2016
Quitting Smoking was very easy
Quitting Smoking was very easy. Anna made it quite easy to understand how hypnosis works and spent 20-25 minutes going over my full history as a smoker to better understand my triggers. 3 days now and haven’t wanted a smoke.

Helped me to put me first

Deb Kinder Stress Relief Program October 24, 2016
Change was a-foot
The experience with Anna was welcoming, non-judgemental and calming. Each session was slightly different – with a different focus – but linked with previous sessions for continuity. I loved the ‘red’ from the first session; made me smile and realise that change was a-foot.
Catherine Elfick Weight Loss October 17, 2016

Brought to light what I NEEDED to address
It’s definitely helped my life. Not only have the sessions assisted with what I wanted to address, but brought to light what I NEEDED to address. The self-hypnosis techniques I have been taught will be the most valuable thing I take away.

Self-discovery and healing
An amazing way of self-discovery and healing. These sessions have given me so much strength and willpower that I am able to push all these negative thoughts out of my head, I have hope and determination to never give up no matter how hard it gets. These sessions always make me feel so empowered and positive about life, that I believe I can do anything I put my mind to.

Outlook on work and life more positive
I got faster results out of Anna’s program than I had expected. I noticed improvement in myself the following day, my stress’s reduced, my outlook on work and life became more positive and continued to improve throughout the program. Anna is very easy to talk too and very approachable and I got the results I was looking for. I feel 10 times better than the day I first walked in.

I now feel in less pain and less stress
I was a bit sceptical of hypnotherapy to begin with but thought I’d give it a go and now I’m so glad I did! Thanks to Anna’s great work I now feel in less pain, less stress, more organised and motivated and feel more confident in myself and my ability to deal with uncomfortable situations and hurt from the past! Highly recommend Anna to anyone who feels like they are stuck in a rut.

Deal with my emotions
Excellent experience, Anna is very calming and easy to listen to. I didn’t expect hypnotherapy to be so full on, but it is absolutely what I needed to deal with my emotions.
Candice Purvis Weight Loss June 16, 2016
Thought provoking clarity
Thought provoking clarity into a wide range of personal issues, Anna is a true professional in helping you explore the inner you.
Update one year later:
My sessions with Anna were life altering. I saw her for one issue and then worked through a series of past and present experiences over the course of my time with her. Afterwards I felt greater clarity in knowing how I feel, what I want, and importantly I was able to dismiss feelings from the past which no longer served me in a positive way. I can't recommend Anna highly enough. If you allow, she will change your life!
Monica Balon Stress Relief Program June 16, 2016
Uncover a lot of deep issues

Helped me with my problem gambling
My experience was great! Across the six sessions I had, Anna certainly helped me with my problem gambling and I found that I was making progress each session. Anna really does care about her patients. I haven’t even thought about going back to the TAB! Hypnotherapy really works!
Josh Gregory Stress Relief Program April 27, 2016
Anna, what I like about our sessions together is you create an avenue for me to relax, think clearly, discuss freely and work towards calming the craziness of my thoughts into that of order logic and reason. It’s nice to feel empowered to gain my lost thoughts or muddled behaviour and to work towards a space of clarity.
You have a natural way to engage and I appreciate your systematic way of working through life matters that require some order and understanding.
We all need to know someone we can turn to in times of need; I am pleased to have been introduced to you.

My experience was a success
The experience was overall enjoyable. I came out of every session feeling refreshed and relaxed. There was a little bit of embarrassment during the sessions involving the confronting of past personalities, but I believe the outcome was worth the slight discomfort. I wouldn’t hesitate in using hypnosis for any issue I have and I believe my experience was a success.

Alan Towey Quit Smoking January 9, 2016
Still smoke free
Dear Anna, since I did hypnosis with you to quit smoking, I have not had the urge to smoke. I have found that when I did feel like a smoke, I would take 3 deep breaths and move onto doing something else. Having explained to my family what you were able to do has also been of great help and support. After 3 days, exercise seems to be easier in regards to breathing and if I feel uptight, I speak to my wife who tells me you don’t need it. I thank you dearly for helping me and look forward to a smoke free life.
Update one year later:
Still smoke free and enjoying the benefits! I can’t thank you enough.

More confidence and self-worth
Dear Anna, what I really liked about the hypnosis stress relief program was how I was able to express my thoughts and feelings in a safe environment. I found your responses helpful and understanding. Also, I found through the hypnosis I was able to discover past experiences and feelings that I had bottled up and formed negative thoughts about myself as a result. I feel so much more confident and self-worth from my sessions and know if I feel down or negative in the future, I can always come and see you.

I feel normal again
Dear Anna, there were many things I liked about the hypnosis stress relief program but the main thing is the fact that it helped me feel ‘normal’ again and showed me that on a day to day basis, feeling anxious and stressed is not okay. I have enjoyed feeling in better control of my feelings instead of them being in control of me. I have learned invaluable techniques which will help me face challenges ahead. I can’t thank you enough. Anna, you are amazing!!

Helpful in focusing my mind
Dear Anna, I have found the hypnosis program for weight loss, to be helpful in focusing my mind on what I eat and when and therefore assisting in some weight loss which was my goal. I have always found hypnosis very helpful but this is the first time I have used it in this manner and as usual it has not let me down.

Work through emotional issues
Dear Anna, the hypnosis stress relief program helped me work through some emotional issues and helped to calm me down by making me realise what is important in life and what’s not. You are a great listener and that helped a lot too.

I am taking control of my eating issues
Dear Anna, once again I am benefiting from your wonderful work, since I quit smoking so easily with Hypnotherapy, I figured it could help me lose weight. I have learnt to stop eating when I’m full, which has helped with my stomach pains. I feel I am taking control of my eating issues and feel a lot better for it. I am slowly losing weight but that is the least of my worries as I know this is a lifestyle change that will last forever and not just another fad diet. Thank you!
Carolyn Danks Weight Loss July 14, 2015
I stopped eating sugar
Dear Anna, since starting hypnosis to lose weight, I have found that my relationship with food has completely changed. I no longer think constantly about my weight, about what I have eaten and what I’m going to eat. I have started to listen to my body and stopped eating things that don’t agree with me like sugar, with little or no effort. This has been an extremely positive and life changing experience.

I had cut down my portion sizes
I became overweight after the loss of my mother and my grief caused me to feel ravenous hunger. I noticed a change in my eating habits after the very first session of the Virtual Gastric Band program. I found that without any effort at all I had cut down my portion sizes, I didn’t feel any sense of deprivation or self-sacrifice. I just reached complete fullness much earlier and I am now naturally eating much less.
Steve Carrey Hypnotherapy August 1, 2014
I just found it easier not to snack
I wasn’t convinced but after many unsuccessful attempts to lose weight, I thought hypnotherapy would be worth a try. Anna was very patient and considerate and we agreed that snacking in-between meals was my main problem. I had a few sessions but things happened quite quickly. After the appointment, I just found it easier not to snack. I don’t think I noticed at first, I just didn’t do it. My goal was to lose 5kg and I lost 2kg in just under two weeks!
Jan Miao Hypnotherapy December 18, 2013
Very happy with the results
I was looking to relax and reduce stress. I came out feeling re-energised, refreshed and relaxed, confident that when things get hectic I have the skills to get through things and soldier on. It allows you to forget about the busy outside world, and take you to a place of relaxation and peace.
I would most defiantly recommend you to others, you take the time to listen to your client, assess the situation and then mould the session to fulfil the client needs.
Thank you for the great couple of sessions!! Very happy with the results.
Kylie S Hypnotherapy December 18, 2013
Highly recommend Anna
Hypnotherapy was recommended to me as an option to help me relax. I was open to the idea as it’s based on reaching the sub-conscious part of the mind and I understand how powerful our minds can be if harnessed well. Anna had a very calming yet confident presence about her, and she was very attentive to my needs. I was very comfortable during the session and her voice was very calming! After the session, I had felt very relaxed and learned how to breathe in a manner that would help me get back into a relaxed and controlled state outside of the sessions. I would highly recommend Anna Siljama Hypnotherapy.
