Needing to lose weight
I was feeling quite anxious and uncomfortable due to needing to lose weight.
After my sessions with Anna, I feel more confident to tackle these problems and now have the tools to help me.
Thank you Anna, I would recommend the program for anyone needing help losing weight.

Stuck in a rut in life
I chose Anna because she was closest to my home. Lucky me! This experience has been a positive one. We covered more than I anticipated and I am very happy with the result. I was stuck in a rut in life and found it very hard to get out of it by myself. This rut made it impossible to lose weight. Living by myself, I didn’t look after myself. But now, I am cooking healthy meals for myself and motivated to get stuff done around the house. I found Anna open, easy to talk to and understanding of my issues. I would recommend Anna to anyone looking for hypnotherapy or counselling.

Anna has really helped me become more aware of myself and my pain. The result of these sessions has allowed me to notice and listen to my pain and my body. I have overall become a better person through this experience and would recommend Anna to anyone struggling with CRPS.

Changed my mindset and behaviours
I came to Anna to help deal with my emotions, negative thinking, and behaviours. Not only has she helped me change my mindset and behaviours, I now understand them a lot better. She has a much greater understanding of feelings and thoughts than any other psychologist I have seen. The time I have had speaking with her has changed me for the better in so many ways! The hypnotherapy has helped me most by helping me focus and calm down.

Motivated to get out and be more active
What I liked about hypnosis was helping me reconnect with myself and my kids and enjoying things again. Feeling motivated to get out and be more active. Helping me make time for myself again without feeling guilty. And helping to learn to brush off negative comments and not hold them inside.

The real reason why I couldn’t lose weight
I came to see Anna for weight loss after having been successful with quitting smoking through her program.
As I had results previously I knew I would be halfway there and Anna would help me identify the real reason why I couldn’t lose weight. She did this for me and I can’t thank her enough. I leave feeling more confident, relaxed and on a good path to great health. I love my body now!!

Break that emotion crave eat cycle
Anna has helped me deal with my emotional relationship with food. The ability to break that emotion – crave – eat cycle has been an amazing experience. Very eye-opening. Anna has also started me on my own personal growth journey where it is my aim to start putting me first. I cannot recommend Anna enough. Good luck with your hypnotherapy journey.

She will make you a non-smoker for life
The most amazing experience. Anna has been working with me to become a non-smoker and it has really worked. She is very easy to talk to and so understanding. I could not recommend her more highly. She will make you a non-smoker for life. Thanks so much Anna for all your time and help. I couldn’t have done it without her 🙂

Anna is very professional but very welcoming and friendly at the same time.
I came to Anna for assistance in giving up smoking. After the 1st session I am feeling very positive and feel I am on the road to becoming a non-smoker.

Changed my life for the better
Anna is fantastic! Since I’ve started hypnosis I feel freer and more calm than I ever have.
I understand myself and know my triggers. I’m more positive and happier than I was prior to seeing Anna. I still have some work to do but Anna has changed my life for the better.
Would recommend Anna to anyone!

Virtual Gastric Band
After trying many diets over many years, some that worked for a short time and some that didn’t, I decided to give hypnosis a try and googled for one in my area. After research and reading positive reviews, I contacted Anna. We had a lengthy chat over the phone and I loved Anna’s approach. Anna was able to dig out the root causes of why weight loss had not been successful in the past and work on those. I signed up to a six week programme and we spent the first four sessions working on those issues. These have significantly helped me improve many aspects of my life, not just weight loss. We then moved on to a virtual gastric band (VGB) session and my life has turned around. I cannot express my gratitude enough. Anna’s approach has changed me so much for the better. Weight loss in my first couple of weeks after the VGB has been outstanding and will continue with very little effort. Everything feels so easy now, no counting calories, points, macros or pre-packaged meals from a weight loss company. Natural and healthy. Anna is very easy to talk to and encouraged me to open up. I was able to completely be myself and not feel judged. She dug deep to find the real me and sometimes the sessions were difficult as they brought up things that I had buried for a long time. The setting is informal, relaxed and calming. I honestly didn’t feel at the beginning that I would be easy to hypnotise….but it worked! I strongly urge anyone to give this a try. Anna does state that there are no guarantees but if you are willing to be honest and open then I’m sure it will work for you too. You will walk away from each session feeling amazing!
And if you need a “star” rating…..unfortunately it doesn’t go up to a trillion stars, so I’ll have to stick with 5.
Debbie K Weight Loss January 25, 2019
All I can say is thank God I came to Anna, my life has changed for the best.
When I first came to Anna, I was a binge drinker. I used to drink every afternoon at 3pm and used to drink 4-5 beers a night. My life revolved around drinking. When going out, we use cabs so I could drink. I never planned anything after 3pm daily. The alcohol took over my life. The wakeup call came when I fell down on the floor hitting my face on the tiles, and I was found by my daughter, bleeding and unconscious. She took me to the hospital to get checked out. To think, back then, what a disgrace I was. And the regret of putting my beautiful daughter through this ordeal. It has been over 1 month of not touching any alcohol and I feel fantastic. My life is back to normal and my husband and daughter are so proud of how far I have come. If it wasn’t for Anna, my life would have been ruined.
Thank you Anna, I can’t thank you enough for what you have done. I now proudly call myself a teetotaller.

Chronic pain in my feet
I came to see Anna for help because of chronic pain in my feet which made it impossible to walk. At times it was so bad, I was forced to use a wheelchair. And I had a trip of a lifetime to Disneyland coming up which I wanted to make the most of.
What I really liked about the hypnosis was it was relaxing, calming and it provided me with strategies and techniques to deal with stressful situations. It also gave me the opportunity to chat about stress, problems etc.
Anna was very down to earth, easy to talk to and made me feel relaxed and at ease.
I found hypnosis to be a totally positive experience.
In addition to this, I feel much more confident to deal with pain, stress and any problems associated with stress that come my way.

I started smoking at such a young age
I started smoking at such a young age. Thinking I was one of the cool kids. Only to come to the age of 47 with a family of my own (with 2 boys 16 and 19). Not wanting them to follow in my footsteps, with the help of Anna, I quit smoking. I want my boys to grow up being healthy and fulfill their extreme goals and ambitions. And not to let bad habits or peer pressure, take over their desires and possibilities of doing what they’re capable of. Follow your own dreams and not somebody else’s.
Debra Phillips Quit Smoking December 19, 2018
Anxiety was taking over my life
I thought anxiety was something I would live with forever. It was taking over my life and stopping me from being myself.
Anna helped guide me in dealing with all these problems and I have never in my life felt so happy, positive and free from my worries and stress. I could not recommend Anna enough and thank her for all she has done for me. I’m so glad I reached out to hypnotherapy.
Update 1 month later:
I can't believe it's been a month now! Things are going really well. I recently got back from a trip to Tasmania. It was good to have a break for a few days and venture out of my comfort zone by doing more outdoor activities.
I regularly exercise, meditate, read and spend more quality time with my family. All things I never thought I actually had time for because my mind was always busy worrying about everything else. I am clearly more productive now being less stressed and self-aware.
I have dealt with a few anxious moments since but I was impressed with how in control I was. Nowhere near the level of anxiety I used to experience. I was able to deal with the issues comfortably.
I've read about people who have been experiencing anxiety many years longer than I had and couldn't imagine spending most of my life like that, so again, thank you for everything 🙂

Helped with my anxieties and overwhelm
Anna has helped me with my anxieties and feeling overwhelmed with my own expectations. Anna has provided me with practical methods to self-manage. She helped me to uncover hidden issues I didn’t realise were the underlying cause. She helped me to understand the root cause of my issues which put me in a better position to have a long-term and lasting solution.
I can’t thank Anna enough for the help and support. She’s made me feel more confident in myself. I would highly recommend her. Anna’s methods work!!

Suffering with Anxiety
After suffering with Anxiety for as long as I can remember, and having tried numerous types of things to help, from medication to counselling, I can confidently say Anna has been a tremendous help. She has given me the tools to confidently approach life and start achieving goals I never thought possible. I now know that I have the ability within myself to handle any of life’s situations and I have Anna to thank for that.

This experience really was invaluable.

Too afraid to travel
I came to Anna Siljama Hypnotherapy to help me with my anxieties because I had a trip to Tasmania coming up and I was too afraid to go. However, I knew I would regret it if I didn’t go, so I knew I had to get help. I will have to wait and see how I go on my trip, but whenever I think about it, I don’t feel nervous anymore. Anna also helped me deal with my negative emotions and I now find I have more compassion and understanding towards others. But what surprised me the most is that I don’t have nightmares anymore!
Update 1 month later:
I’m emailing you to inform you that I had a wonderful trip to Tasmania and I felt little to nothing on the plane. While on the way there I had no fear what so ever and I did not worry about it as much as I usually would. There was a lot of turbulence initially because of the weather and I admit I felt a little scared thinking it was going to continue throughout the full trip but of course it did not. Everyone was as startled as I was because of this, but it did not bring back my anxiety in any way.
Throughout the holiday I noticed that the hypnotherapy had impacted other areas of my life in which I was surprised of, this included driving up mountains in which I had never felt so comfortable doing. It was actually quite funny as the people around me were feeling ill and I was practically the only one who didn’t care. I had a wonderful time with my friends who made the experience even more wonderful and, on the way home the plane trip was amazing. So much that I didn’t want to get off!
I thank you so much for helping me achieve what I always wanted, a sense of freedom to be able to do what makes me happy. You have given me the hope and joy to allow me to move forward with my life in a positive manner. I cannot express the amount of happiness I have because of this experience. And you will be kept close to my heart for your understanding and kindness.

Musical performance anxiety
Before I went to Anna, I had a problem with musical performance anxiety. After completing the 6-week program provided by Anna, my performance anxiety has decreased markedly. I now have a greater understanding of the source of that anxiety and myself. As well as helping me on a subconscious level, Anna has also provided me with valuable ways in which I can go forward and help myself in very practical ways with my anxiety.
Update 1 month later:
I feel really positive about my cello lessons after your treatment. I apply all of the strategies that you gave to me to help deal with those feelings. Once the lesson begins I feel quite (not completely) comfortable and able to learn from and communicate with the teacher. Thank you Anna for treating me and allowing me to access the learning of music and an understanding of myself. I have listened to interviews with neuroscientists whose studies completely support everything that you taught me.

Identify the root cause of an issue
Anna is professional, compassionate and perceptive. She has an amazing ability to identify the root cause of an issue (before you’re even aware of it yourself) and tailors each session to suit your needs as she guides you through the process. No two sessions are the same.
Hypnotherapy is not something I’d normally try but I’m glad I did. The results are real. It is one of the best investments in terms of personal development that I could ever have made.
Thank you Anna for all you’ve done.
Update 1 month later:
Thx for the follow-up. Everything seems to be going well.
In general, I feel more resilient and confident. I don't care much about the things I can't control. It's like I'm sitting on the other side of the fence now and can see so much stuff that people are getting wound up about that really doesn't matter.
I can shut down those thoughts that cause me frustration a lot quicker. Now it seems I can bring my thoughts into the cognitive/logical part of my brain (rather than it sitting in the emotional/subconscious)
And now that I've reset the boundaries of acceptable behaviour with my family members, they’re more appreciative of my time and say thank you when they need something done rather than it being an expectation.
BTW. Congrats on the WoM #1 hypnotherapist last month. Well deserved.

I now feel in control of my life
Anna has helped me to see things much clearer. And I now have a better understanding of myself and how I’ve felt about myself in a negative way. But she made me realise that I was just learning life and needed to go through these emotions to make me feel stronger. I now feel in control of my life once again and feel happy and positive.

Successful weight loss
Dear Anna, thank you for your help. Since visiting you I have been made aware of what has been holding me back from successful weight loss. I understand that I am my biggest roadblock and thanks to Anna I have the tools to go forward. She is a no-nonsense or no “bullshit” girl who calls a spade a “bloody shovel” and has made me realize that the only person holding me back is me! This journey has been a surprising one and has helped me to call myself out when I’m making excuses. And to plan so I don’t fail in achieving my goals.
Cheryl Gates Weight Loss October 1, 2018
Thank you for helping me with my general anxiety and travel anxiety.
I feel my general anxiety is much improved as I don’t feel sick in the mornings anymore and I feel as if I have good control of it now as I am able to maintain it all day. And the other night while packing for my holiday I realised that I’m not feeling worried. Time will tell while I’m on holidays how I do but I am feeling confident I will have a great time.
Update 1 month later:
I am doing great. Our Hawaii holiday was stress-free, no feeling sick, I felt like a normal person going on holidays. We had a great time, did everything we wanted, it was all over too quickly though.
Back at work now, still busy but all is good.
Thanks for making my life better.

I have gained control of my eating habits
Since I did hypnosis with Anna, I have gained control of my eating habits and begun to feel more positive about doing things I need to do to change my lifestyle. Before coming to see her I was overweight, never exercised, drank very little water and felt negative about where I was heading. All of this has changed and I feel like my life is back on track. What I really liked about the hypnosis program was that Anna was always willing to listen to what I had to say and I always walked away feeling positive. Thanks Anna

Gained control of my smoking habit
What I really like about the hypnosis program was the ability to gain control of my bad habit and understand it is all in my head not so much the physical habit of smoking.
The messages have set in my brain.
Anna is a wonderful person and I am glad she has guided me through this process.
Pauline Mason Quit Smoking August 29, 2018
Focus more on myself
As a result of the hypnotherapy with you, after 6 sessions, you have helped me to focus more of my attention on myself and understand more about how my thoughts are affecting my behaviours. My goal for attending hypnotherapy was to give up smoking, and I’ve eliminated some of the excuses/reasons I had for smoking. I realise now that the problem is much deeper than just a bad habit and maybe need more time to process and implement the things we’ve discussed and worked with. I feel that there is still more that I need help with and I haven’t experienced everything I could with hypnosis so far. I’m still on the journey. I do very much appreciate the changes that have occurred and the ones that are in the process of happening. Thank you!

Deal with my anxiety

Break free completely from my habit
I had only heard about hypnosis from other people but had never attended a session myself before. Anna was lovely and a very calming person and during the whole experience I felt calm and relaxed. After just my first session I have gained more control over my smoking habit and am now ready to break free completely from my habit.

On my way to a better weight
Before I arrived, I really didn’t have an idea of how hypnotherapy worked.
I actually thought it would be “my saviour” to cure all my over-eating and weight issues!
I realized that it wasn’t the “cure all” I thought it would be and that it was up to me, and the hypnotherapy was there to help me.
Sceptical at first, however, I now am realising the benefits and I'm 4kg lighter – on my way to a better weight, less stress and more “about me”!
It is working!

The experience has been eye-opening
Thank you, Anna. I am becoming aware of myself and the things that trigger me. I am more aware of my actions and why I do/did the things I did.
The experience has been eye-opening and I can’t wait to continue on my path.

I have struggled with a weight issue
For many years I have struggled with a weight issue. I realised that I was, in fact, self-sabotaging, but I never knew or understood why?
Hypnotherapy, for me, was an alien concept, partly due to the fact I didn’t understand it. Throughout the process, I have gained so much knowledge about myself and identified so many triggers causing my self-sabotage.
Interestingly, hardly any of the problems were because I loved food and therefore that’s why I had a weight issue.
Anna has been amazing in every way and has facilitated a change in me more deeply than what I ever imagined.
I am regaining my true self!
Sara Meade Weight Loss July 25, 2018
I was using food for comfort
Before I went to Anna, I was using food for comfort and after the first session I was able to stick to 3 healthy meals a day; no snacking or eating and drinking to help me get through a tough day. I have started to lose weight and don’t feel like I am missing out on anything. I feel more relaxed and am better able to handle my stresses; without food.
Liddell Murphy Weight Loss July 20, 2018
Anna understood the issues
From the beginning of my treatment, I felt as though Anna understood the issues I was experiencing and I felt very confident in her ability to help me.
Between each session, the changes in myself were subtle but significant so I was seeing consistent results which further added to my confidence in Anna’s treatment.
I feel as though I still have work to do, but definitely feeling as though I have a much clearer direction and the tools I need to continue making progress.
Thank you Anna xxx

I haven’t had the urge to smoke
Before seeing Anna, I felt trapped and that I could not quit smoking. Since then I haven’t really had the urge to smoke. I found her sessions empowering and educational and helped to put smoking as a habit into a very black and white way, realising how stupid it really is.
Sarah Tappy Quit Smoking July 13, 2018
Smoking was affecting my health
Before I went to Anna, I was a light smoker, only a few at night to relax or socially. It was affecting my health as it was difficult to breathe whilst exercising.
It’s been a week and I am breathing better. It is not so hard to breathe now. Excited that as each day passes I will feel even better.
Hi Anna, just letting you know I am now at my two week anniversary of not smoking. I am feeling better and better each day. Two weeks. So pleased, thanks Anna.
Hi Anna. Still going strong. Its six weeks now. Wow.
I came and saw you nearly six months ago about smoking, I haven’t had one since. Amazing, so pleased.

Anxious, nail-biting, overeating, stressed hot mess
I am so grateful to have seen your listing on Google!! I was an anxious, nail-biting, overeating, stressed hot mess. I knew I needed help. I loved my first session, I loved every session! My nails have grown. More importantly, I feel I have grown. I am seeing things clearer than before and thanks to you, your gentle approach, your realness, and guidance has been a blessing. I have told people about my sessions in great detail, however, the ones closest to me have commented on the shift that’s happened. It’s all positive. My awareness is increasing and I feel empowered, so thank you.

I am doing very well thank you!
My nails are stronger than ever and my stress and engagement with dramatic family affairs is minimal so all in all I’m very happy and doing well!

Thanks for checking in 🙂

A powerful and life-changing experience
At the completion of the 6-week programme with Anna I can now say it has been a powerful and life-changing experience. When I called Anna to enquire about hypnotherapy I was desperate. I was hoping to find something that could get rid of the anxiety and the physical symptoms that associated with it straightaway. I’m glad I didn’t fall into this pop-in-a-pill-and-all-will-be-fine mentality this time. I now understand why Anna says this insight hypnotherapy is not about putting a bandage on me like some of the other hypnosis methods, and that the transformation is real and permanent. 6 weeks of transformation compares to nearly 20 years of struggle to get well, in my view, is the evidence of the effectiveness of the hypnotherapy method Anna uses. If you suffer from anxiety but have no idea why and what causes it (because it is so deep and so unconscious), I would highly recommend you contact Anna and give insight hypnotherapy a go.

My cravings for cigarettes reduced by 95%
My experience to date with Anna after one session has been beyond my expectations. My cravings for cigarettes reduced by 95% and the 5% I did have were very controllable lasting only a few minutes at a time. I can honestly say I have felt great and not experienced the side effects of the nicotine withdrawal (such a bonus). I feel I have a more positive mindset by doing these sessions and a real sense of achievement. I have gotten on top of my monster who use to control my life. I am free…..!

Overloaded and unclear
Before I started my sessions with Anna, I felt overloaded and unclear with how to move forward. I knew that I had a lot of underlying subconscious issues and that I needed assistance sorting through this and finding some clarity and direction.
Since my time with Anna, I have been able to identify things that weren’t apparent and have been able to move forward in a positive manner.
I can’t wait to see what the future brings.
Thank you so much!!

Smoking is no longer on my radar
I had been a smoker for 15 years and had tried multiple times to quit with little and no success in the long term. Whenever quitting, I would feel anxious, panicked and overwhelmed.
After one session with Anna, I haven’t looked back. When thoughts of smoking cross my mind I acknowledge them and then push them away and move on. Smoking is just simply something I no longer do. It is not even on my radar.
No stress, no anxiety, just a happy and healthy future to enjoy.

My anxiety has disappeared
Before I went to Anna I had bad anxiety. 6 weeks and I feel like a new person. So much happier and calmer. I 100% think if you’re dealing with anxiety, you should come see Anna. I can’t believe how different I felt after a few sessions. Now having my last session, I feel like I’m actually living my life and loving every minute of it.
My anxiety has basically disappeared and I thank Anna so much for that.
Update 1 month later:
I’m doing really well thanks!
Just been working & doing what I want on weekends which is great... thank you so much again for changing my life. Time sure does fly by! Haven’t had any issues with my anxiety so I’m super happy about that.

Before attending sessions with Anna, I was in a dark place. Suffering with depression and anxiety. Since working with Anna, I feel that this has shifted and my thoughts are more positive and centered. I now feel ready to tackle the world.
CJ Stress Relief Program April 5, 2018
Before I went to Anna, I was suffering with quite extreme anxiety and through these sessions, I have been able to deal with these anxiety attacks and begin to feel more calm. It helped me deal with the physical and emotional symptoms I was having.
Lauren Dinelli Stress Relief Program March 21, 2018
No more diets
I came to Anna needing help for weight loss, as I had tried quite literally everything else. I knew that I had something greater than ‘lack of willpower’ stopping me. What I got was not only help with my emotional eating but a deeper and, surprising at times, understanding of why and how I used food to fill a void. I am now not beholden by constant thoughts of ‘good’ food and ‘bad’ food. I now consciously agree to engage in eating and I feel so much lighter, on more than just a physical level. I know I still have some work to do myself but I cannot thank Anna enough for helping me see my worth and give me freedom from the ‘diet’ mentality.
Anna, at all times made me feel safe and validated, no matter what came out of the session.
NO MORE DIETS!

Haven’t touched a cigarette since
I was a smoker of 10-12 years, I haven’t touched or thought of a cigarette since I left her office after my first appointment.
Update 1 month later:
Hey Anna how are things? Still going super strong and still haven’t had any form of craving or moments when I have thought about having a smoke. Joined a gym which keeps me really busy so I don’t have time to really think about it either haha. Thanks.
Update 1 year later:
Still going strong and off the smokes which is great. I have recommended you to a few people as well.
Luke Coram Quit Smoking March 10, 2018
Before I saw Anna, I was very lost and confused after my recent divorce. Since I’ve been seeing her, my life has completely changed, not quite the way I wanted, but it has certainly been shaken up. I am clearer about things now, I still have a long way to go, but I’m not confused and I’m treating myself better.
Liss Mendalson Stress Relief Program February 23, 2018
Before I went to Anna, I felt completely frustrated and hopeless that I would ever overcome my issues with binge eating.
Anna was so understanding and able to relate to my symptoms and frustrations in a really caring manner.
After my visits, I feel so much more in control of my emotions and myself and am able to see the root cause of my issues that were creating my symptoms for so many years. I feel so much lighter, knowing that I have knowledge and tools to notice when old paths are being followed and pause to take the better path.
Sammii Norton Weight Loss February 23, 2018
Quitting smoking has been so easy
I had made up my mind to quit smoking for good and began looking at reviews for hypnotherapy. Anna had great results and reviews which made my decision very easy.
I was a little worried it may not work and had doubts as to how I would feel. But it is now after 4 days later and I still haven’t touched a cigarette.
She is very easy to talk to and explains the entire process. Makes you feel very comfortable and actually wants to help!
I feel positive now about quitting smoking and it’s been so easy! Glad it has been a painless process so far.
Leah Dalton Quit Smoking February 17, 2018
Deal with food issues
I came to deal with food issues and fluctuating weight. Lots of issues came up for me to deal with and I feel that I am better able to cope without immediately turning to food. My awareness of habits and my ability to cope with stress is improved and although I am still hoping to improve my weight and food relationship, I feel I am moving in the right direction. Sessions were relaxing and enjoyable and I felt very safe!

Highly recommended for quit smoking
Before coming to see Anna, I couldn’t quit smoking. When I left after my first session, I was amazed at how well it has worked for me. I would highly recommend this to anyone trying to quit smoking. It is 100% worth it.
Sarah Welsh Quit Smoking February 13, 2018
Improved my quality and outlook on life
Anna has certainly helped me gain a new perspective of my anxiety, assisting me to recognise my small triggers and negative habits. I feel the sessions have improved my quality of and outlook on life.
Update 7 weeks later:
I hope you’re well 🙂
I just wanted to touch base following my last session to say thank you for all of your wonderful help! I’ve noticed a huge improvement in my anxiety and moods and while I still have the occasional anxious or flat moments my overall well-being has benefited tremendously.
I have been able to use the insight and skills I gained through your sessions to help me meditate on a regular basis, something I wasn’t able to achieve previously. While I love the concept of the self-hypnosis I have found a guided meditation app more enjoyable and instead use my memory of being in hypnosis as an anchor to return myself to a similar level. I have found this technique to be really helpful as a management strategy and most certainly have you to thank for it.
Deb Stress Relief Program February 10, 2018
Before I saw Anna, I was suffering from a lot of workplace stress and anger issues. I found each session surprising. I learned a lot about the cause of my issues that I did not expect to learn through hypnotherapy. Anna’s guidance has been invaluable in my treatment. I now no longer have that feeling of dread come over me Sunday afternoons and feel a lot calmer at work, even during challenging situations and just generally feel a lot better with myself. I even find myself accepting compliments (which I never could before). This experience has been emotionally healing for me.
Update 1 year later:
Thanks for getting in touch.
I've been doing really well thanks and still noticing the benefits of your therapy.

A weight lifted
My first session felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders, just getting everything out. I will continue to see how I grow from this experience.
Sherryn Singh Stress Relief Program December 13, 2017
I loved the whole process! Starting the session with a discussion and discussing objectives really helped. Amazed at the progress in putting things right in my own mind. Now feeling empowered and stronger. Service was personalised. Anna helped get me back on track by dealing with old thoughts and feelings amounting to anxiety and stress as well as emotional eating. The best investment I have ever made and I am so grateful.
Update 1 year later:
Hi Anna, I’m not bad thanks, I have had a couple of things go wrong and I’m learning to cope with them.
Natalie Markham Weight Loss December 8, 2017
Following treatment from Anna, I feel the best I have felt in 4 years after suffering from chronic pain for the last 4 years. I know I must continue on my own now and Anna has given me the skills to do this. I have achieved all of my goals, which as to improve my energy levels and quality of life, and can only improve from here, now that I have learned what I need to do. My friends, family, and colleagues have all noticed the difference in my life. Thank you Anna.
Update 1 year later:
I'm doing really well. My life has changed a lot since I last saw you. I have a lot more positive self-talk these days. And I'm sleeping much better and that makes a world of difference.
I am able to more easily recognise when I am stressed or anxious. That makes it much easier to manage the situation and take some time out or at least be at peace with the knowledge that the stress and pain are only temporary.
Aliesha Ellis Pain Relief November 6, 2017
I was very surprised
I found Anna very easy to speak with. I was very surprised that I was still aware of everything around me and what she was saying and that I remembered everything that happened after.
Jacqui Shean Stress Relief Program October 19, 2017
Have not had a smoke
It has been fantastic. I was very skeptical about what would happen, but so far the results have been great. Have not had a smoke but even stranger is that I don’t feel like one.
Dylan Hyndman Quit Smoking October 18, 2017
It opened my mind
My experience was very informative, it opened my mind to things that now make much more sense to me. I feel I’m getting to know who I really am as my own person.
Update 1 month later:
I’m doing well and I’m making a lot of progress thanks to you and starting to feel much more positive. Thank you for everything you have done for me and I appreciate all that you have helped me with.

A smoker for over 40 years
The experience was better than expected. Very relaxed session. Having been a smoker for over 40 years, I knew it was going to be a tough road.
Eric Reading Quit Smoking October 11, 2017
My triggers of smoking
I got so much more out of the sessions than I thought I would. Having done hypnotherapy in the past and had little success, I am so relieved and happy that I gave it another go. It really got down to my triggers of smoking and the crux of what was going on in my head.
Update 1 month later:
The non-smoking thing is going great which is a huge bonus
Alysha Crundwell Quit Smoking October 4, 2017
Puts everything in perspective
The chatting beforehand puts everything in perspective. Not knowing what to expect from hypnotherapy it was a very positive experience.
Vicki Duncan Quit Smoking September 28, 2017
Problem with public speaking
Anna, was fantastic!
Before I went to see Anna I had a problem with public speaking; I was a confident person naturally but did fake confidence in front of crowd and starting to become increasingly anxious about presenting, to the point where I could almost pass out. During hypnotherapy we uncovered significant stress and anxiety issues caused by my job and earlier events in my life, that although managing well, were part of my problem(s). I had been bottling this all up and although uncomfortable bringing these issues to the surface, was actually able to deal with them and further analyse and overcome root cause systemic problems.
Since completing my course with Anna I feel very happy within myself and a lot more confident. There has been some interesting personal and professional opportunities come my way and I have been successful in MC'ing a Wedding and conducting a presentation in front of 100 staff at work with only minor nerves. This is empowering and I am putting myself out there now for further opportunities to present.
Anna is a special person and honestly believe she can help you too.

Addressing underlying issues
I really liked the approach in addressing underlying issues which were affecting me and inhibiting me from reaching my goals. Great overall experience, caring and effective.
Update 1 month later:
It's great to hear from you, I've been going well, I've noticed some real changes. I've got a different attitude of confidence and determination and I think self-belief.
I'm also doing a bit more exercise which I think comes from more self-commitment. With the eating I fluctuate a bit but the thing I have noticed is that I know I'm choosing to eat, so it's more of a decision, which I think is good, it's not so mindless as before so I know I have more control over it. I have lost a few kilos though.
I think I'm happier than before I came to see you.
I hope all is well with you, thank you again for your help and fabulous work - it's very inspiring.
Maxine Jones Stress Relief Program September 22, 2017
It exceeded my expectations
It exceeded my expectations, I was nervous and slightly unsure, however, Anna has been able to guide me with her warmth and understanding and profound skill/technique to help me through. Overall it’s become an enjoyable experience and one I’m grateful to have had.
Update 1 month later:
That time has flown by since our last session. At this current time what has changed the most is my ability to communicate and express myself, so it's been a subtle change that can't been seen so much but felt.
The way I would describe it is I no longer go out of my way to people please ALL of the time. I have created personal boundaries and trust myself in knowing when these boundaries are being compromised and able to express it to another.
To sum it up though I'm feeling in flow and content with life.
I'm so thankful that we crossed paths and for your service.
With grace and gratitude,
Meagan Hazel Stress Relief Program September 22, 2017
Gained control comfort eating
I came in to gain control of my eating, through my journey I learnt deeper about myself and the underlying issues that impact my behaviour. I have become self-reflective and self-aware and gained control of my comfort eating.
Kirsty Molesworth Weight Loss September 15, 2017
Fear of needles
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed each session I had. I felt I developed as a person and viewed my lifelong issue with needles in a more positive way. Now that I am studying to become a nurse, it is about time I overcome this phobia once and for all. I feel that I have been able to do that. This was also my first time having hypnotherapy done and was very enjoyable.
Update 1 week later:
Just letting you know I gave 3 injections last night on my shift at the hospital!
I'm so happy and proud! Thank you for all your help.
Update 1 month later:
I’m going great, been giving heaps of needles which is great and I don’t really get nervous anymore!
Update 1 year later:
Wow, time flies! I’m doing great, haven’t had any issues and giving needles is a great feeling for me now.

Very understanding, intelligent and thoughtful
Anna was very understanding, she really took the time to listen to me. I have been to Doctors, Counsellors and Psychologists and have never felt heard or understood. They all assumed to know what was wrong with me. Anna was different. She is intelligent and thoughtful and listened to understand. And she has helped me to understand myself a lot better as well.
Dominick Spencer Stress Relief Program August 28, 2017
Fear of public speaking
I came to work on my fear of public speaking because I want to progress in my career. I appreciated the psychology behind the hypnosis, i.e., the discussions prior to going under, to gather information but also to have realisations about topics pre and post hypnosis. The end of the session “cues” were great for helping to be mindful of staying on track. It was more than hypnotherapy and it uncovered other areas for me to work on. I am already handling stuff better, and have noticed an improvement on how I feel about being called up to talk in front of a crowd at work.
Update one month later:
I am fantastic and thank you for asking.
In the first week back from leave I had to do a presentation in front of 100 staff and that also went well.
Whilst I still get some nerves I can manage them and I owe it all to you.
I feel better within myself day to day as well and 'genuinely' much happier.
Update one year later:
I'm well thank you, and yourself?
Work has been very busy but I was fortunate to have achieved the promotion I was chasing and I am now the GM.
Had a lot more opportunities to public speak and I’m getting better and it’s getting easier. I have even hosted a few evenings and done quite well with a few beers under the belt, ha ha!
Appreciate you following up and checking in and I do make reference to our time together to various people who are struggling with similar challenges.

Future without smoking appeared so logical
Simple process in a relaxed atmosphere. I felt like I was “being sucked into the armchair”, as I drifted into a peaceful place of happiness where everything/the future without smoking appeared so logical.
Update 7 weeks later:
I am doing great. Still off the cigarettes and have lost 10kg. Maintaining the weight loss well considering most people increase weight when they give up smoking.

I have been going great still not smoking.

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.
Joy Woodward Stress Relief Program July 27, 2017
I have suffered from Shy Bladder since childhood. 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 wanted to feel more relaxed about going to the toilet in public because I am about to go on a trip of a lifetime to England. I feel more relaxed about my trip now because I have been able to go in public with no problem.
Update 2 months later:
Well I am just back from my trip and I had a lovely time. I also went to the toilet on the plane. Had no trouble at the theatre or lining up at cafe's etc. Thank you very much for helping me during my sessions with you.
Update 1 year later:
Thank you for your email. I have been doing really well. I have just come back from another trip overseas and things went well. Thanks again for getting in touch with me.

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.
Update 2 ½ months later:
I am going very well. No more nightmares.

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.
Helen Stress Relief Program June 15, 2017
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.

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 self-confessed hypochondriac. 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 at how well I was coping after only one session. I also noticed that my health 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, and no longer obsessing about my health. It is such a relief to feel at free from the tightness and tension which I felt in my upper back. All those symptoms which I was worrying about have disappeared. I now realise that I was creating those symptoms, it was all in my head. My family also noticed changes, I don't have the mood swings that I previously had.
Update 1 month later:
Things have been going really well. The issue with my obsessive thoughts about my health has been resolved.

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.
Update 1 year later:
Still a non-smoker. It's been 13 months now and I have no cough at all and a much healthier bank balance.
Thanks for everything you did!

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.

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
Update 2 years later:
Hi Anna, going good thanks, still not smoking.
Matt Bode Quit Smoking November 6, 2016
Quitting Smoking was very easy

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.

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.

In just one session a non-smoker
So happy I made the decision to see Anna. In just one session I would already classify myself as a non-smoker. She gives you the tools to succeed, in a nice friendly relaxed setting.

It just blows me away
I’m not sure, it just blows me away how the mind works and how I can go from 25-30 smokes a day to nothing and not really feel like one, awesome.

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.

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!

Uncover a lot of deep issues
I was able to uncover a lot of deep issues. Anna helped me make sense of why I was feeling the way I was. She is very caring and encouraging.

Well executed treatment

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.

Getting to the core of issues
Understanding and getting to the core of issues is made easy the way Anna breaks everything down. The time spent in the sessions is always relaxed and comforting.

I’m smoke free
Since I’ve done my Quit Smoking hypnosis with Anna Siljama, I’ve been smoke free. I’ve been doing a lot more exercise to keep me occupied, I am very happy with the service.

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.

I feel less anxious and worried
Dear Anna, thank you for working through my problems, and helping me with a lifelong addiction. You helped me with my confidence going to a new school and feeling more secure. It helped me deal with my brother better. I feel less anxious and worried.

Happier and more confident
Since starting hypnotherapy, I have been feeling a lot more relaxed about everything. Most everyday stresses now feel easy to deal with. I feel happier and more confident than I have in a long time and I am very thankful for that. I would recommend this Stress Relief program to anyone!

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!!
Marie Parker Stress Relief Program August 12, 2015
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.
Tina Collette Stress Relief Program July 16, 2015
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.

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.
