What People Are Saying

“What should I expect?  I don’t want to be made to say or do anything that will embarrass me.  The idea of giving someone else control over me is just too scary.”

Those are some of the comments people make when I mention how much I enjoy being hypnotized.  Let’s put your fears to rest.  Here is what you can expect when you schedule an appointment for hypnosis with Sylvia Runkle:

A cozy office.  A large, comfy recliner.  Headphones with rhythmically soothing music.  An experienced, confident guide speaking to you through your headphones as she guides you down the path of a daydream.  The tension in your muscles will dissolve as you mentally journey towards a destination of your choice.  You soon realize with unwavering certainty that no one but you is in control of you.  Sylvia will use her three decades of experience to gently steer you along the path that leads to your goals and your highest good.  You’ll feel in your bones that safety and dignity are simply woven into the fabric of your time with Sylvia.  Her compassion and integrity will be evident.  As you gradually rouse yourself to a state of limber, relaxed joyousness after a time that will seem like minutes, you’ll ask yourself, “Whatever was I nervous about before?” And then you’ll ask Sylvia, “When may I schedule my next appointment with you?”

Sylvia picked up on my subtle cues during my session with her.  As a result of that, she verbally guided me to areas in my psyche I had not previously explored.  I was delighted to work with such an open-minded, talented, and generous hypnotherapist as Sylvia Runkle.  Added benefit: My entire journey was captured instantaneously on CD!  My time with Sylvia was sheer pleasure.

Thank you, Sylvia!

Brianna RoseBrinna Rose’s Parents Thank Hypnosis for their Beautiful, Happy Child!

After a year of temperature monitoring and then medication failed to result in pregnancy, we tried three attempts at IUI or Intra Uterine Insemination.  When that failed we wanted a child badly enough to make the substantial investment in IVF or In-Vitro Fertilization.

We participated in one egg harvest followed by a “Fresh” and a second attempt with a “frozen” embryo transfer with failed results.  We then participated in a second egg harvest followed by a “fresh” transfer which failed.  After all of the failed efforts above, we were desperate to have our next “frozen” transfer work.  I called Sylvia Runkle to ask about hypnosis.  I had never met her, she lived in a different state, but I knew two other people who were working with her long distance.  We had two tries left – we had to make them count. We knew there was research indicating hypnosis could help.

Sylvia interviewed me on the phone and said she would make a CD for me.  She gave me instructions on how to use it. I listened to it all week and on the way to the hospital.  Each of the other times I experienced cramping, discomfort and pain.  This time I just went to ‘that other place’.  I do not recall anything about the procedure.  It was amazing! Thanks to the hypnosis, my body was relaxed, calm and receptive.  And it worked!

Brinna Rose is the proof.  She is such a happy  child.  She rarely cries.  Within three weeks she was sleeping five hours a night.  She wakes up with a big grin on her face.

We hope to have a second child using the last of the frozen embryos.   This time we will definitely use Sylvia’s hypnosis again!

Through my work with Sylvia Runkle off and on over the years I learned many things. First and foremost – metaphorically, not to be afraid of the storm and to appreciate the power and beauty of thunder and lightning.

When the wolf was at the door to dance with the wolf. To understand that my enemies could be my teachers. And to thank what had hurt me for the lessons and move on.

When I lost my religion Sylvia opened up a whole new universe for me – a universe much greater than that of my original childish beliefs.

She taught me a great deal about the field of neurolinguistics which I used to great benefit in my career as a Consulting Hydrogeologist. Sylvia advised me both personally and professionally for many years and was a valued business consultant.

Her gentle guidance and encouragement has long been a part of my life. She helped me to understand that I am the mover and shaker of my life – fully responsible for the choices I make and the consequences thereof. The prime mover of my own destiny.

Sylvia has effected positive changes, both small and large, in other people I know. Her work with groups in which I participated I can only describe as enlightening.

I can wholly recommend Sylvia Runkle for those who are seeking positive change in their lives for any application, be it business, academic, sports, or personal habits, and, especially, personal growth.
