I was a smoker for 28 years. Went into hypnotherapy thinking it would probably not work. After two sessions with Laura I was convinced nothing was going to happen. Then I stopped. Just like that, I grabbed my pack of cigarettes, said "ENOUGH" and threw them in a public trash can. I have not smoked since. Coincidence? I think not.
Laura is gentle, easy going and professional. She answered all my questions about hypnotherapy and made me feel welcome and worthy. I found the experience to be incredibly empowering and am considering hypnotherapy to change other bad habits!

I started going to hypnotherapy for weight loss, specifically, but I've gotten so much more out of it. I always considered myself a self-aware person, but working with Laura I've found more and more layers that I needed to uncover to get to the root of my issue(s). It's been very beneficial and cathartic, one of the most life- and self-changing events I've gone through.
Her warm, friendly energy and direct approach make it easy to open up and be comfortable discussing difficult and deep-seated issues. I'm in my mid-20's, but no matter age, race, or gender, she is open, honest, constructive and sensitive.
We've done life coaching, hypnotherapy, reiki, even past life regressions (but don't get weirded out if you don't like the new age stuff - she's great at regular therapy/coaching). In every session, I come out feeling stronger, more centered and focused, and have a clear goal until our next session.
I would recommend her to any and all of my friends who are looking to improve their mental, spiritual, and/or physical health

I'm a 21 year old guy who was going through some tough times, mainly regarding self confidence, self sabotage, and addiction. I started meeting with Laura once a week, and I can't articulate enough how much she has changed my life for the better. Laura helped me talk through my issues and discover the hidden reasons that holding me back from being happy. When we delved into hypnotherapy, she helped me rediscover a love for myself that I had lost since childhood. Laura is extremely open, positive, and non-judgmental, and she only wants the best for anyone on her couch. I simply can't recommend her enough. If you go into her sessions with an open mind and a willingness to do the work necessary to heal, then I have no doubt she can help you tremendously. 5/5.

I only knew of hypnosis as a stage act to make the audience laugh. Then a friend with a fear of flying conquered her fear through hypnosis. This seemed amazing but of course the issues that I needed to address, to me at least, seemed far more personal, difficult and insurmountable. However, I took the plunge and have had several sessions with Laura. She took the time to get to know me and really understand the issues I was having. I have made great progress and actually look forward to our sessions.I feel I have benefited from Laura's skills as a life coach as much as her skills as a hypnotherapist. I would highly recommend Laura to anyone who wants to work on their issues, and my only regret is that I put off working on these problems for so many years.

I had a wonderful experience at Seattle Healing. I left feeling very relaxed and peaceful. It helped give me good insight on issues I was struggling with. I would highly recommend Laura to anyone who is looking for a Hypnotherapist.

I just had a really great session with Laura. She was easy to talk to and I feel really relaxed after just one session. I have some focus and a clear objective of my goals for this week. I actually feel confident that I’ll achieve what I set out to accomplish this week.
I tried the Reiki bc it was an extra $20 for a new experience. Yolo, right? I had heard it changes your life, but I’ve never been new agey. Anyway, 5 weeks later I feel 50 lbs lighter in my emotional self. Would recommend 2 sessions to feel results.

I started the six-week intensive program Heal your Mind Weight loss both excited and apprehensive. I was excited, because this was the first program where my body and (more importantly) my mind were worked on at the same time. I was apprehensive because I've participated in more weight-loss programs, diets, and exercise regimens, than I can count. And I can count pretty high.
Throughout the first few weeks, I was very determined and focused on the diet and exercise portion, but found myself subconsciously trying to backslide into my old unhealthy habits. For example: using food as a reward; relaxing when I had a long day; or reaching out to rekindle old romances that were never good in the first place. With the hypnotherapy and reiki sessions, I was able to recognize that behavior was fear of success - of losing the weight, and being a new person, and dealing with that change in identity. That recognition was huge for me, as it was the main reason I was unsuccessful all those times before. Previously, I'd get to a point where I'd lose enough weight to see a change and would start feeling different about myself, then I'd then get scared of what that meant, pick up my old habits and start from the beginning again. Rinse and repeat for 15 years.
With this program, I've reset my mind (feelings/thoughts) and behavior (physical/psychological). I've become more comfortable with who I am, and confident that being a better version of myself empowers not only me, but others around me. In accepting that I can be a stronger, happier, more present person, I was no longer afraid of changing my identity; in fact, I was looking forward to it, because it no longer fit. I am no longer the "overweight girl, always struggling to lose weight." I am now the girl who is happy to work on herself, excited to see progress, and comfortable sharing the struggle and success with my friends and family, who are even more supportive than I had expected.
While this program definitely improved my relationship with food and exercise, it also clarified how I see myself, and that was the most critical change. That clarity finally opened the door for me to become who I've always wanted to be, rather than who I resigned myself to be. My goal for this program was to incorporate working out into my daily life; that has been accomplished, and weight loss is a great secondary result of that. However, the real goal, of which I was unaware from the start, was that I am becoming more and more that version of my future self that I've always wanted to be.
